Deutsche Bank in my view is the systematically most important bank Ex US and it just dropped below 7€, the default probability keeps on rising and Coco bond yield is now 12.5%. Any attempt to bail out or merge it will negatively effect EURO.

EM bonds, stocks & currencies will outperform developed markets next year, with Brazil being the top pick of traders, investors & analysts surveyed by Bloomberg. I think we will get a great opportunity to buy Brazil over the next six months when dollar tops out and commodities are bottoming.

US 1-year inflation expectations are negative, plunging since February. Much more than normal seasonality.

Wall Street expects the Fed will pause its rate-hike policy.
