Dollar testing highs against the Canadian Dollar as Canada struggles with identity crisis

Is Canada a ‘real’ country? What is a ‘real’ country anyway? Is a ‘country’ defined by ethnic lines, borders, corporations, or what the United Nations says? Is Kosovo a country? Some say yes, some do not agree: Kosovo, self-declared independent country in the Balkans region of Europe.

USA places last in Forex market

Going back to the ‘USA is Exceptional’ meme- yes this is true! But it’s not necessarily a good thing (just like, being positive isn’t always good, for example it’s not good to be HIV positive). USA has the highest per capita prison population – and is exceptional in a number of areas. USA is number one in terms of real GDP, and last in many other terms. One thing that the USA is last in – FX.

“Central Banks Now Own $25 Trillion Of Financial Assets”

With 85% of Wall Street telling Citi they expect a “dovish hike signal” from Yellen tomorrow, which means a polite request for another BTFD opportunity, even if as BofA says “expectations for a dovish Fed are coinciding with macro strength in the US (most obviously in housing & consumer spending) as well as highest level of wage inflation since Jan’10“…
… here is a quick reminder of where we currently stand from BofA’s Michael Hartnett, from a brief note titled The Liquidity Supernova & the “Keynesian Put.”
* * *
Risk assets are now supported by the new ”Keynesian Put”, the expectation that fiscal measures will be deployed to combat any renewed weakness in the economy/markets (independently of any larger political projects). But asset prices remain primarily supported by excess monetary abundance across the world:
  1. There have been 667 interest rate cuts by global central banks since Lehman;
  2. G7 central bank governors Yellen, Kuroda, Draghi, Carney & Poloz have been in their current posts for a collective 17 years, yet only one (Yellen in Dec’15) has actually hiked interest rates during this time;
  3. Central banks own $25tn of financial assets (a sum larger than GDP of US + Japan, and up $12tn since Lehman);
  4. There are currently $12.3tn of negative yielding global bonds (28% of total);
  5. There is currently $8tn of negative yielding sovereign debt (54% of total).
Do not expect any unwind of this $25 trillion in risk asset support to be unwound any time soon, or perhaps ever, or else…
