    FOMC : Observe US dollar index next 48 hours - confirmation of weaker US dollar is coming..

    Its co-ordinated as BOJ and ECB backs down from ZIRP
    It's part of "deal" w China.
    It's technical supported.. see below..

    Feds Yellen has a new model for economics: It's called:

    TRANSITORY - and that her reply to everything:

    The strong US dollar, deflation, inflation and world peace.

    In other words Fed is lost, they have no outlook per se and she even admitted "forecasts are not forecasts"!...

    This is one very bad performance by Yellen but her main answer in Q&A was:

    The is almost unchanged economic outlook with a more accomodative monetary policy === Weaker US dollar.

    Steen's Chronicle: Meet Mr and Mrs Consensus
    The US, its policymakers, its investors and its analysts are in thrall to a foolish narrative – that China must and will fail. The consensus on this is as breathtaking as it is arrogant and they are all guilty of ignoring what's really going on in China, where emerging markets are actually headed and what medicine the American economy really needs.

    Glencore shares hit sub-£0.71 as abyss beckons
    Glencore, the world's largest commodities trader and miner, is being engulfed by a massive storm that wiped nearly 25% off its market cap earlier today. And with commodity prices still under broad pressure the once-proud Swiss-based company faces an uncertain future.

    Macro Digest: The end of global recycling
    The world's central banks are printing money like never before and households and governments alike are up to their necks in debt. But it's not working. Productivity has ground to a halt. Improved productivity and education is the answer to escaping this rut.

    Russia’s crisis is also a huge opportunity

    Chief Economist & CIO / Saxo Bank
    Denmark
    That Russia is a mess is irrefutable. The double whammy of its self-engineered Ukraine crisis and the subsequent oil price collapse has left it floundering. While the crisis may seem at boiling point right now, the passage of time may cool tempers sufficiently for solutions to be devised. Russia may well become the surprise recovery of 2015,.
