Iko Ward : OK, quick recap. The entire planet thought China was going to come out red big time and instead came out green. Futures immediately corrected, didn't even wait for the play to develop. The US market strategists are all tripping over each other trying to guess where we'll be Tuesday morning.

Isabelle : IKO. on a weekend when trading is very thin, large movements in the markets are fairly common. If someone needs/wants to make a large order it will swing the market either way depending on buy or sell. What you are seeing may be something different.
Iko Ward : Isabelle...under normal conditions I would agree. But these are not normal conditions.
Starchild: Asia is almost all red...
Dakota: Shanghai, Hong Kong and Japan all turned red 7:41 pacific.... http://money.cnn.com/data/world_markets/americas/?iid=H_MKT_QL

Iko Ward: US Futures are showing some backbone. They're going to wait a whole minute before they change their tune.

Starchild: agreed - China is down 45% and US Down 2300 Points from the High - officially a "Correction"
Big E 13B: Jim Rickards: Will Currency Wars Reorder the World?
SEPTEMBER 4, 2015 James G. Rickards Jeff Deist
Our guest this weekend is Jim Rickards, the author of the New York Times bestseller The Death of Money and a well-known expert in geopolitics and global capital.
Jim and Jeff discuss the unfolding drama at the Fed, which can't decide when—if ever—QE will come to an end. They also discuss possible endgame scenarios for liquidating unprecedented amounts of sovereign, commercial, and household debt; whether coming monetary shocks will present the IMF with an opportunity to demand a global currency reset, and who wins and loses when the game of musical chairs stops.
This is a must-hear interview for anyone interested in currency wars, central banks, and the unholy politics behind it all.
