    The Macro Take: The year the bear will growl
    Where to for 2016? For starters, gold will go ballistic and so will things such as bitcoin. Expect the continuation of QE from the Bank of Japan and the European Central Bank, as well as some potential new entrants into the QE ship - perhaps Canada? It's a year of geopolitics and turmoil ahead - let's not forget the US elections.

    Today's Trade: AUDUSD rallies, ore price dips, S&P/ASX 200 opens lower
    Trends in global markets overnight and renewed Grexit fears have set the tone and direction for the Australian sharemarket. The benchmark S&P/ASX 200 dipped lower at the start of trading. Meanwhile better than expected jobs news gave the Australian dollar a boost. While the long-term trend is down, the AUSUSD rally seems to be defying both gravity and the pessimists.

    Cash is going the way of the dinosaurs

    Global Economic Analysis
    In Italy, they might still insist on cash payments in some hotels for bills in excess of EUR 1,000, but the reality is that cash is fast becoming obsolete in the modern world and will go the way of the dinosaur, says Mish Shedlock. France, for example, Wednesday put a cap on cash prices at EUR 1,000, from a previous EUR 3,000, partly as a move to combat terrorist financing and money laundering and the same logic would suggest that this will only go one way in the future. Shedlock says that digital currencies are most definitely coming, but adds that Bitcoin advocates are likely to be disappointed — its future demise will be sealed when the Fed deems it no longer a fit object of study.

    Remember Bitcoin? China does

    Bloombergview
    Bitcoin was on every one's agenda in the autumn of 2013 and then, all of a sudden, wasn't. But the crypto-currency seems to be making something of a comeback in China and that is worrying Beijing's leadership, says William Pesek. The People's Bank of China has already intervened, once during those halcyon days when the Bitcoin briefly threatened to outvalue gold in December 2013, and again in March 2014 when it ordered the closure of trading accounts from more than 10 Bitcoin exchanges. But, with Bitcoin traders continuing to emerge and the yuan now used in 80% of transactions into and out of the cyber currency, according to Goldman Sachs, the threat to stability poised by Bitcoin and other rival cyber currencies is causing Beijing nightmares as it tries to establish a coherent and effective response.
