Good question, glk. China may be the 800-pound gorilla in the room they are waiting for. IMF is probably giving a sobering reminder that if China loses their European and American customers because their economies crash, about 1.4 billion Chinese will be circling the drain right behind. Enough is enough of keeping the yuan artificially low. And the iqd and the vnd among others.
Thanks Gg1.
