On the heels of a chaotic trading week in global markets, particularly in currencies, today a legend in the business warned King World News that the worldwide liquidation scramble could morph into a full-blown 2008-style collapse.

Art Cashin: “There is great instability in the currency markets around the world and it will not make for too restful a weekend here until we get a chance to see how this all begins to play out.

There Is A Worldwide Liquidation Scramble

The other thing they (traders) noted is that commodities, things like copper and other base metals along with the grains, are selling at very, very low prices. And it looks like all around the world, nations are straining because their economies are slowing down and there is a liquidation scramble.

It is hard for me to believe that with commodity prices dropping the way they are the Fed will be comfortable raising rates because this looks like more deflationary pressure coming in the short run.

You’re seeing the CRB Commodity Index at multi-year lows. You look at things like copper, it’s almost half the price of what it was. Coal and coal companies are going out of business. You’re going to find some of these commodity related businesses not only not being able to pay their dividends, they won’t be able to pay their debt. I’m looking for some insolvencies there and that’s going to reverberate through many of the other markets.
