This is probably the 25th article I’ve read that implies that the tapering of federal stimulus is also causing the pull back in stocks. It’s probably in hopes that Bernanke is reading all of this and will decide to hold things stead rather then another $10 billion reduction that is needed. The Fed’s to the rescue…!!

Well interesting enough on FT I saw that the ECB is gearing up to buy bank loans and provide liquidity to the market. Tuesday India’s central bank will announce their Monetary policy on interest rates and we will see how the markets will hold up this week with US economic news slated for this week. The tapering seems to be scaring off investors with risky investments in EM markets and they have more reason to be scared with the recent incident with Argentina and Brazils tamed/low growth. IMF and World banks forecast growth upwards of 3%+ and the decreasing currency prices of those EM’s might spur export growth that will lead to a second quater/ second half take off in EM economic performance.

TLDR; Lower currencies now may present an opportunity for stronger EM growth in the 2nd half of the year.

proof again that you can never believe the “economists” “analysts” and other rafaille, “consulted” by Bloomberg (and add reuters). To their benefit I may add that even a broken clock got it right twice a day. http://bit.ly/1gQxBng
