Asian equity markets tumbled after concerns over the end of the Central Bank bubble in US equities as bonds continued to sound shrill warnings. The Sell-off across Asia was stabilised in Europe and turned to the positive by the time US markets opened. There were no major economic data releases in the US which meant reduced speculation on the Fed's 'tapering' program.

Good news has recently been a negative, as it supports the tapering in Central bank monetary policy and bad news was treated as 'bad news' pushing equities lower and bond yields higher! This is a reversal of the same inversed phenomena that caused recent rallies!? Go figure!? The Chicago National Activity Index dropped, but in line with expectations, so markets will eagerly await tonight Housing data release in the US. The EUR regained 1.3400 and the GBP continued to book gains, trading 1.5675.

The AUD suffered during domestic trade after the RBA Minutes confirmed the parlous state of economic and budgetary affairs but will resist further cuts before the election. The AUD looked to test the big, big figure of 0.9000 but rebounded back to 0.9080 as US markets improved. The KIWI traded below 0.8000 after the RBNZ acted to impose restriction on mortgage ratios on banks.

The intervention is a vain attempt to control the booming property market in Auckland while not raising rates and thus the NZD. Unintended consequences! Look for further downward pressures in US Equities and Bonds as tapering approaches and this will drive markets!

Collinson FX market Commentary: August 20, 2013
The momentum of the last week continues with further pressure on equities. US markets were unable to break the inure that has siezed stock markets due to the threat of reduced stimulus. It is hard to believe that markets are so inflated and swamped in liquidity, but here we are!

The Dollar remains relatively strong due to similarly adopted Monetary policy by global counterparts. The ECB has followed the monetary expansionism and this has reduced the impact of the USD which trades 1.3333. The Bank of England has also participated in monetary largesse, due to insurmountable debt and deficit, with growth the only redeemable option. Fiscal rectitiude is the solution and the UK has invested with returns reflected in the GBP, which has moved back to 1.5650.

Bernanke will act to preserve what little historical relevance he may have but it will be too little too late! Greenspan is blamed for the same monetary vandalism that Bernanke will be. They have overplayed their hands due to Governmental incompetence and fiscal ineptitude. The experiment with the left has failed miserably and the people will recognise that emotional social wish lists never avail themselves to reality. Social progress only comes through growth and conservative economic budgeting.

Australia is learning this hard lesson with an exponential growth in debt and an uncontrolled budgetary abuse. Interest on debt has become a major component of Governmental expenditure and the budget has now become structurally broken. It appears the people will right the wrong and this may be reflected in the currency which has recovered to 0.9110 after hitting 0.9200 in yesterdays trade.

The KIWI has improved back to 0.8070, after earlier hitting 0.8100, with economic conditions slowly improving. Commodities dipped due to demand pressure which has been hit by international markets. Look to further growth prospects globally to determine central bank policy and thus equity, commodity and currency markets.
