Follow up:

Rogers says he does not pay too much attention to the rating agencies upgrades and downgrades as their track record has left him with very little confidence.  Markets may rally on certain short-term fixes or good news, but until some resolution comes to the mountainous sovereign debt, no rally will last. 

He also commented that QE3 is already underway if you look at the huge jump-up of M2 money supply since August (see chart below).  In Rogers words, "they are buying something."  He also thinks the world could be better off without the central banks money printing press.

Regarding his current investing strategy, he said he's shorting European stocks, American technology stocks (He is shorting a package of U.S. technology stocks including Microsoft calls), emerging market stocks, but long commodities and currencies (Rogers owns some euros).
