Dollar Slipping From Position as Foreign Exchange Reserve

The word, "Yikes!" comes to mind:

The dollar swooned amid speculation that China will seek to diversify some of its foreign currency stockpiles beyond the greenback.

The 13-nation euro hit a fresh record against the dollar -- rising to $1.4729 -- before falling back [to $1.4554]. The dollar lost ground following word that a senior Chinese political figure said China should spread its $1.43 trillion foreign exchange reserves beyond the dollar into the euro and other strong currencies.
