Even as Federal Reserve policymakers seemed unsure of the immediate direction of the global economy, debating whether disinflation could be an issue in the short term at their meeting March 18-19, most of them expected inflation would return to 2 percent in the next few years, according to minutes of the gathering released April 9. But just when within the next two years inflation would start rising has been a point of debate, and the fact that producer prices exceeded economist expectations this week reinforced the idea that policymakers, for all their good intentions, may not time interest rates correctly to contain runaway inflation, as historically has been the case. And this situation also clearly calls for the need to have investments that can simultaneously enhance earnings and protect against inflation, which can appear more suddenly than policymakers have forecasted.

Alcoa (NYSE: AA  ) kicked off second-quarter earnings season by announcing a year-over-year drop in sales and a big net loss. If you’re wondering what this tells us about the rest of earnings season, the answer is “not much.” That’s because, first, nobody truly thinks about Alcoa as an earnings bellwether anymore.

MahiFX Markets View:  Unwinding the US Federal Reserve's quantitative easing programme was never going to be easy and it has barely started and some emerging market countries are already running into trouble. So far the worst hit countries also appear to be victims of their own internal problems, such as high current account deficits and political turbulence. In effect, ultra cheap money from the Fed was papering over some serious cracks – similar to what the EUR was doing for years for peripheral Eurozone countries. It would seem perfectly natural for emerging market currencies to fall against USD as winding down quantitative easing is a form of monetary tightening. But will it reveal deep rot within some of those countries? For some yes. And in this age of global inter-connectivity that potentially matters a lot. 5 Best Paper Stocks To Invest In Right Now: UPM-Kymmene Corporation (UPM1V) UPM-Kymmene Corporation is … Continue reading
