John will demonstrate the dynamics of global relationships between equities, bonds, currencies and commodities. The recent discrepancy between rising agricultural commodities and falling copper prices will be covered, as well as the potential threat from emerging markets and the Ukraine. He will explain the impact that Fed “tapering” is likely to have on the relationship between bonds and stocks as well as foreign markets. He will show the U.S. dollar at a critical chart point, which could have an impact on gold and other markets. The main point of the presentation will be to demonstrate that global markets remain highly correlated.
