NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- A major concern since talk began of an end to U.S. monetary stimulus has been how emerging markets will be affected. As loose credit filtered through economies, the excess reserves were channeled to emerging markets. The U.S. dollar weakened and foreign assets strengthened in price across the board, from commodities to currencies.Now many market observers believe the party will begin to wind down in September. Although Monday's durable-goods data were much weaker than expected, the Federal Reserve could choose to cut down bond purchases by only $10 billion a month as opposed to the expected $20-25 billion reduction. It is now buying $85 billion in bonds a month. Regardless of how it is done, the Fed seems to be adamant about reducing its current hyper-accomodative policy. That will tighten up the flow of funds across markets and push capital out of emerging assets such as commodities and equities. TLT). In mid-May, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said the Fed was considering winding down bond purchases. That led to a selloff in long-dated bonds every month since, pushing interest rates higher and causing rate-dependent sectors to sell off. In the durable-goods order, the extremely negative number announced Monday highlights how investment is hindered due to higher cost of financing. As long as rates remain elevated, investment will remain subdued.
