The popular outlook for interest rates to move higher is really not justified by recent economic data. In the U.S., consumer prices were unchanged in June and retail sales fell for a second straight month, last week. The larger issue at the US Fed and other major central banks may well be the uncertain time frame for unwinding their multi-year bond buying spree.

The probability for both to happen simultaneously is suspect by the steady weakening of the US dollar that began in early Dec-2016.

This week's comments review the changes in the US dollar compared to our basket of global currencies, changes in 10 year bond yields and once again preferred share prices.
