    There will be plenty of time to decouple with China when Pres Trump is re-elected. Patience is a virtue.

    BS, You and the rest of the country wouldn't even be talking about the China problem if it weren't for Trump and his understanding of it.

    where will china get the dollars from to buy anything from US? China is already buying tons of food for dollars. Will the fed install a printing press in china? If you have oil and dollar rally and EU still weak who will buy the goods? How can feds easing give china more dollars? Will US have to buy everything?

    I didnĀ“t have the time to finish watching the interview live, so thanks for answering the question on the USDHKD peg. I have been tracking their aggregate balance (HKD 54.4 bn) as the FIRST source of available FX reserves they have for this matter, which after having been reduced drastically in the past now seems pretty stable. However, regarding the couple hundred billion USD of cushion that @Brian mentions are these part of the total FX reserves (USD 430 bn), if so, how much of these reserves are actually available for interventions. Where can I track them in a disaggregated form?... Thanks...
