Dollar Boosted by FOMC Minutes and Syrian crisis - iNVEZZ | SUPER USA | Scoop.it
DailyForex.com Dollar Boosted by FOMC Minutes and Syrian crisis iNVEZZ The dollar, initially driven up by the FOMC meeting's display of a vague inclination towards tapering QE in September, later, fell back on poor US Jobless claims, Housing Sales,...
Martin Eden's insight:

There was 3 events that helped or hurt the value of the dollar. Both the Syrian Crisis drove up the value of the dollar and boosting up the demand of dollar while the next stage in order to tapering QE helped the dollar drive up. However the dollar fell a bit due to the poor claims in the US in Housing Sales,Durable goods, and Job data and claims. With the boost in the dollar, it has helped foreign capital from emerging economies back into the US.

Unemployment Down, but Job Growth Still Crawling

Unemployment Down, but Job Growth Still Crawling | SUPER USA | Scoop.it
Unemployment hit its lowest point since November 2008, according to the September jobs report, but concern is starting to slowly creep in because the economy failed to add very many new jobs.  The biggest takeaway from September's shutdown-delayed...

Martin Eden's insight:

Although the US unemployment may be at its lowest point since November 2008, job creation, which is still needed after the recession, has started to stagnate.  The government released the unemployment report today saying that the US is officially at 7.2%.  Many are calling for more job creation, which may have been stunted by the government shut down.

This article discussed unemployment comparisons between the US and Europe. Each nation differs in unemployment levels and causes for such differences. Spain's natural rate unemployment is as high as 24% when ours is as low as 8%. With such differences, the question arrises if our unemployment rate is even considerably high when compared to other decently well off countries.

Report says shale gas boom to cut certain emissions in U.S., boost GDP

Report says shale gas boom to cut certain emissions in U.S., boost GDP | SUPER USA | Scoop.it
The rapid development of shale natural gas in the U.S. will not significantly reduce the country's carbon footprint because cheap gas will supplant low-carbon energy sources, according to a report from Stanford's Energy Modeling Forum.
Martin Eden's insight:

The use of shale gas is technically improving the technology of our current state to accelerate energy production which leads to the growth in GDP. With that GDP increase because of reduced damages from emission damages, we have more left over "disposable income" for the government to use in different issues that need more attention.

Fund Managers Still See December As Most Likely Timing For Fed Tapering Despite Crisis In Washington

Fund Managers Still See December As Most Likely Timing For Fed Tapering Despite Crisis In Washington | SUPER USA | Scoop.it
The BofA Merrill Lynch rates and FX strategy team has just published the results of its October fund-manager survey, which contains an interesting observation: Investors still view the December FOMC meeting as the most likely timeframe in which the...

Martin Eden's insight:

The government kicked the can down the road, not fixed the problem.  As QE continues, some are fearful of what will happen when the FED begins to taper.  Most fund managers believe that this will happen sometime in December, just in time for the government to kick the can further.

Public opinion is actually pretty divided over when the Fed will start the taper. Regardless, though, investors' expectations will probably affect their decisions and therefore have an impact on the economy.

Gucci's Gold Capital's curator insight, October 23, 2013 9:22 AM

This is interesting because it constrasts the article Casey scooped, which said Fed Tapering would happen in March. I think December might be too soon for us to ease up on Quantitative Easing. After the government shutdown cutting off the money flowing into the economy might be more stressful than it usually is.
