Troubled Times for Asia and Europe. Commodity Prices take a Beating

The month of September saw the economy of the different regions diverge even more significantly. The US economy strengthen and with the prospect of the US central bank ending their QE bond purchase program and a possible earlier than expected rise in the interest rates, the US stock market becomes more volatile than usual. The development from Europe and Asia made investors flock towards USD, causing the USD appreciate dramatically, not seen since the 2007 financial crisis. 

Trouble Brewing in Asia and Europe
The economy in China continues to indicate a slow down and decreased the possibility of hitting the 7.5% growth target. The China government has loosen some of the money supply but this doesn't seem to encourage global investors from moving into the China equity market. The "Occupy Central" movement further discouraged the investors from investing into the Hong Kong stock  market, of which almost 50% of the capitalization are made up of Chinese companies.
