  1. Interesting how the USD is seen as a primary near term driver of US equities, but the EUR or CNY are not seen as equivalent drivers of Euro or Chinese equities.

  2. I have seen analysts opine that the US $ now takes more of the volatility in financial markets and acts as more of a buffer versus intermediate to long term US Treasury bonds. In the past the bond market took more of the financial market volatility according to the analysis. Not sure if this is true and if central bank activism is the cause but it is an idea that is worth thinking about.
