The future of the Euro continues to look more promising than that of the dollar, at least in the eyes of the IMF. Today the intl. financial forum lowered its projected outlook for U.S. economic growth, citing concerns with the out of control budget deficit as the chief reason. The IMF contrarily upped its outlook for future performance in the EuroZone, projecting higher than expected GDP growth in the next year. If the IMF predictions hold true, gold and silver may continue to hold appeal as the dollar will likely continue to fall against the Euro.
