from: What is global market turbulence telling us? | Gavyn Davies

... the markets may be starting to doubt whether the central banks actually have the weapons needed to stop global deflationary forces in their tracks. Robin Harding reminds us that Ben Bernanke once said, wisely, that quantitative easing “works in practice but not in theory”. The implication is that it only works because it shifts inflation and other economic expectations in the desired direction.

If markets start to doubt this, they have entered much more dangerous waters. But the relief rally on Friday, triggered by the merest hints that central banks may consider further asset purchases, suggests that we are not there yet.

and from: St. Louis Fed: Explaining Recent Asset Price Movements

One movement that might appear to be paradoxical is the sharp increase in the foreign exchange value of the dollar over the past few weeks. The foreign exchange value of a currency is often linked to expectations of that country’s growth relative to its trading partners. It would be unusual for declining U.S. growth to be linked to a rising value of the dollar. In the present case, however, expectations of European and Japanese growth may have declined more than those of U.S. growth. For example, on Oct. 14, Germany’s Economy Ministry reduced its 2014 forecast from 1.8 to 1.2 percent and its 2015 estimate from 2.0 to 1.3 percent.3 An alternative explanation is that the rise in the value of the dollar could reflect the demand for safe assets during a period of high uncertainty.

A drop of just 5 cents YoY averaged for a year (the YoY decline overall so far in 2014) adds over $6 Billion in disposable income that can be saved or spent for other purposes by US consumers.
