Two things that caught my attention this week, 11/11/18:
- 2 of 3 UST auctions last week were either the lowest or 2nd lowest bid-to-cover since depths of Great Financial Crisis. This is a sign of USD liquidity stress that if it persists will likely begin setting off alarm bells at the Fed soon.
- For centuries, the global currency system was based on “good for goods” trade; for the last 47 years, it’s been based on “goods for IOU’s” trade – the US wants to keep both systems but must choose one or the other.
