EURODOLLARS vanishing from its domestic banking system, CNY devaluing, PBOC contracting, and RMB constraint.
So what caused this in 2015? The answer is: The outflow of USD at depositories by large commercial players (Banks, Funds, ETC.). Now if you remembered from one of my previous posts couple months back, China is trying to fight a monetary trilemma, which to this date is loosing. The trilemma is if you recall, to have control of its capital account, to have a fixed exchange rate, and more importantly have monetary autonomy. Now the problem here is, China for the past couple of decades has used tremendous amounts of credit and leverage to accelerate its economic progress. Now if you acknowledge that China relies heavily on exporting goods, it can not afford to have outflows!
If China has problems getting USD’s it faces a domestic credit crunch – domestic credit markets, especially in the real estate sector, will implode.
If Foreign markets face deflationary conditions, China will face having to devalue its currency to offset tightening credit conditions.
If China is forced to devalue its currency to quickly – then USD outflows by depository institutions will likely occur causing a domestic credit crunch.
That’s the problem here:
China is fighting its reliance on the mighty dollar, but it can only fight is slowly because it risks destroying its credit markets. The other problem is that the FED is engaged in (WHICH IS DEFLATIONARY) and is engaged in yield control by tightening yield markets to bring down yields to spur lending growth. YES! is designed to lower yields by tightening financial conditions. (The FED does not PRINT dollars!)
