5.   Dream: THE BONDED WAREHOUSE - 30th March 2007:

I (the dreamer) am in a wine merchant's shop. Unlike a normal shop, here one buys bottles of wine by entering the required number on a computer screen, just as with an Internet webshop. The price per bottle is dimmed, and I ask why. The woman running the shop tells me that the wine is held at a bonded warehouse , and is only released when the sale is completed. At that same time, the price per bottle is no longer dimmed, but becomes definite. I enquire why that is so, and she says they convert price of the imported wine from a major trading currency to the local currency; the trading currency has however started to sink rapidly, causing confusion as to what the point-of-sale price in local currency should be. Only at the very moment the sale is made can the exact, definite price be confirmed. I look at the computer screen, and see the price of the 'trading currency' falling rapidly, and even moving from one category (coloured blue) to another, lower one (coloured green).

Interpretation (as in the newsletter at the time of the dream): A situation in which cross-border trade becomes very difficult, once the reserve currency in which international transactions are made, the USD, starts falling rapidly. All kinds of ploys are needed by retailers and others in such a situation, including holding stocks in bonded warehouses (i.e. not importing it until the sale is confirmed), and giving a precise price only at the exact moment of sale. Moreover, the term 'bonded warehouse' could have some relevance to the bond market, which could become severely disrupted were the Fed and other central banks be compelled to raise interest rates in defence of their national currencies.

On the basis of the dream, which is in effect only a confirmation of the dream of last summer, we believe strongly that the USD is going to fall to much lower levels against other major currencies.

Enactment to date: So far so good. On 30th March 2007 the EUR/USD rate was 1.3330. On 19th July 2008, it stood at USD 1.5848, a rise of just under 19%.
