My Bubble thesis views China as the marginal source of both global Credit and demand for commodities (and much else). Any development posing risk to China’s vulnerable Bubble rather quickly becomes a pressing global issue. It’s worth noting the Bloomberg Commodities Index dropped 3.1% this week. WTI crude sank 7.4%, while Copper was hit for 5.7%. Nickel fell 6.9%, Tin 5.4% and Zinc 3.6%. China’s renminbi declined 1.2% versus the dollar. In spite of notable investor optimism and attendant financial flows, EM currencies reversed lower this week.
