what to watch this week

The dollar’s setback is a correction. This is one topic on a post in Seeking Alpha. Political anxiety has eased (this is debatable, think North Korea), leading to the correction. Going back to mid – 2014, in which the dollar had a good run, the correction is from the results of that time frame.

The week ahead will be busy.

The MSCI Emerging Markets Index eased for the past two weeks. The advancing trend was broken in September.


The US interest rate premium is increasing. Higher US rates and widening premiums have driven the dollar higher. the dollar’s advance has stretched many technical readings, warning that the risks of a near-term pullback have risen.

A December rate hike was still seen as appropriate helped the dollar begin recovering.

Should be an interesting week.
