What is your biggest economic concern in Q4?

This is more of a fundamental question and while I do not trade fundamentals myself I think it is important to know what is going on and to a certain degree understand what happens in the economy.

Since the US debt ceiling was lifted until February next year and the government is open for business after a 16 day shut-down it appears that most traders have put their fundamental worries aside, at least equity traders who have pushed indices to all-time highs. Forex traders sold off the USD after the news.

Do you have any concerns at all or do you buy the story?

I think the debt ceiling debate will haunt the markets as in about eight weeks we will have the first set of budget negotiations and the problem has never been solved. I think it will create some nice volatility in the USD especially starting 2014.

I also think we may see a disappointing Q4 as far as GDP is concerned and with the housing market set to cool off I would not be surprised to
see another recession in the US in 2014.

Just my thoughts.

My biggest concern for the remaining months of 2013 is that there will be some seriously bad news from the eurozone. For example, if Spain or some other financially troubled nation will require more help due to a jump in bond rates.

I do share your Eurozone worries, but I think we may see them unfold in a bigger fashion in 2014. I would not be surprised to hear something much sooner and I do think countries like Spain and Italy will require some sort of financial assistance rather soon.
