  • China Wants to Ditch the Dollar [View article]
    While very few can argue about the weakness of the US dollar, I believe that China is in no place to provide a suitable replacement currency, and the Eurozone even less so. Rather than arguing for a new reserve currency, they are probably best to make a push to devalue the yuan in order to stimulate their own economy.

    With the FOMC announcing plans to purchase treasuries, there is a good possibility that they will be purchasing some existing ones from the Chinese, rather than just freshly created ones, in order to appease them a little. All of which could ultimately lead to a collapse of the treasury market.
