Central banks are the dominant force in trading markets worldwide. The policies of  Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan and their colleagues have become, more than ever in history, the determining factor in market direction.  The United States Federal Reserve has led the way with efforts that stretched the boundaries of traditional monetary policy. The success of  the Fed’s endeavors  in promoting economic growth have been limited but the effect of quantitative easing on  markets has been pronounced.

The era of quantitative easing and low interest rates will end and  when it does the economic effects  will depend on factors external to monetary policy. If economies have recovered from the effects of the recession, the financial crash and the bubble economies of the last decade and if  they have reformed their structural impediments to growth and expansion, the gradual return to a more normal monetary world may be benign. That is not likely to be true for the trading markets.  We will discuss the implications and possible dangers  of the end of central bank  liquidity on the currency, commodity and credit  markets and speculate on the potential timing.
