Fears over the health of China's economy kept world markets on edge this week and the country will remain in focus, along with the question of whether the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates next month. Those concerns sent world stocks, commodities and currencies on a roller-coaster ride this week, and purchasing manager surveys due on Tuesday are expected to show manufacturing contracted during August in the world's second-biggest economy. Federal Reserve officials who are most anxious to hike interest rates said on Friday that continued turmoil in financial markets may cause the central bank to delay tightening monetary policy beyond next month, even though the U.S. economy remains strong. Joining the broadcast to discuss the economy, bond prices, the Fed and housing is Brent Nyitray, Director of Capital Markets at iServe Residential Lending. Brent is responsible for managing iServe’s origination pipeline and Ginnie Mae securitizations. Prior to iServe, Brent was an analyst and trader at several hedge funds as well as ran the European Risk Arbitrage trading desk at Bear Stearns. Brent is also the author of The Daily Tearsheet, a blog focused on the economy, financial markets and real estate.
