Happy New Year, if you happen to read this little blurb.
I have been insanely busy with what has passed for real life, although I find it hard to find much of any value in what I have done to be real. Hope you have fared better. Yes, I didn’t write up any hard Christmas gifts, but I didn’t get any hard packets either, just hard times. Still, here’s a little New Year’s gift that I will give out, and then keep playing with for as long as it amuses me.
I will do correlation testing to US/Japan/Chinese money supply later, but I just finished compiling and formatting all the data that I have collected over the last month from the HKMA official daily statistics. I have not just been resting on my laurels or doing other stuff for the past two weeks!
Here are a few introductory charts I’ve done with the data amassed here (using the Monetary Base data instead of money supply).
Then all the moving components:
And finally, the big kahuna I have been talking all about over the last few months:
Now, with the fiscal “step” in place no matter what happens, and further uncertainty in the money markets, it will be very interesting to see how this data set develops as time goes on. More on this in a later post, hopefully tonight.
If there is anything in particular that any reader wants to look closer into and have me do with this data, please let me know and I will get at it!
Again, Happy New Year!
