    My Outrageous Prediction for 2014:

    BitCoin takes over.
    Bitcoin users keep growing in the US and Europe. Central banks will fail to regulate them and the share of Bitcoins will become so important that will affect the power of the Central Banks, forcing them to modify their policies.

    2) The astronomical cost of Russia's winter Olympics combines with a plunging oil price and the outbreak of further hostilities in the Caucasus (Georgia, Chechnaya, Abkhazia - take your pick) to see Moscow turn to the West and capitulate on a whole bunch of geopolitical issues, including Syria and security concerns over Gazprom's control of Europe's gas supply, in return for cash.

    HAS QUANTITATIVE EASING BECOME AN EMBARRASSMENT?

    Panellists: Nick Beecroft, Chairman of Saxo Capital Markets; Valentin Marinov, Head of European G10 FX strategy, CitiFX; Geoffrey Yu, Senior FX Strategist, UBS Investment Bank; and Peter Kinsella, FX Strategist, Commerzbank.
    Moderator: Guy Johnson, Bloomberg TV anchor.

    The shifting sands of monetary policy seem to have turned some major central banks against the very concept of quantitative easing, amid fears that the efficacy of QE may not outweigh the risks, namely asset bubbles and a systemically dangerous mispricing of risk. As a result, central banks have added ‘forward guidance' to their policy tool-kit. Whether it’s the 'threshold dependent' variety favoured by the Fed, or the 'time dependent' alternative tentatively embraced by the ECB, this marks a significant shift in how central banks communicate their future policy to the public.
