    Sadly the primary cause for their pain is coming directly from the US. If they want to stabilize their currencies holding tons of US treasuries will only moderate the pain. Holding a basket of other currencies like the RMB and Euro is the only way they really can escape their currency being decimated every time the US sneezes.

    The beatings will continue until moral improves. Obviously QE wasn't inflationary to the US because QE stimulated the emerging markets more than the US economy. The dollar carry trade made for one hellva a party. The reversal will make for a hellva hangover.

    The capitulation in India is reading out like a movie, forget a recession, India may be headed to its own great depression.


    Apart from African kangaroo states, currencies do not depreciate at a rate of 2-3% everyday on a sustained basis.
