Financial Market Snapshot August

Why are global markets so scared about China? It is not 
economic growth per se that’s causing the fear but the risk 
that an enduring economic weakness of the Chinese 
economy could provoke the repatriation of asset from 
abroad, particularly a reduction of the Chinese holdings of 
US treasuries.
Any significant shift towards less dollar asset accumulation 
would provoke higher US interest rates irrespective of any 
FED actions. A surge of interest rates provoked by 
Chinese asset reallocation has global implications.
Such a change would not only be poison for the US bond 
and stock market, it could mark its arrow of death for US 
financial assets and a global meltdown.
