Dynamic Funds Economic Monitor
The global economy is faced with decelerating inflation, which is a problem for policymakers in many countries in so far that already ultra-low interest rates limit the ability of monetary policy to respond further. The American and Canadian economies are unique for the moment in that they show signs of accelerating growth, which will likely carry over from the third quarter to the fourth. But after that?

Intra-month Market Craziness And Seeing the Forest From the Trees
October turned out to be a pretty crazy month for capital markets.

This time the changing sentiment was triggered by the renewed stalling in growth and disinflation in the euro zone and Japan, as well as the continuing, gradual loss of momentum in a number of emerging market economies such as China and Brazil during a time of increased uncertainty due to heightened geopolitical risks and Ebola concerns. Commodity prices — oil, most metals and many foodstuffs — have moved sharply lower. Disinflation around the world has become more prevalent, while deflationary conditions have emerged, notably in Italy, Greece, Spain, and Sweden.
