CFOs of companies around the world have always looked on exports to the US as the key to their business. The mighty US consumer had an unlimited appetite, paid in dollars and was backed by a strong and vigorous legal system (i.e. you could be sure you got paid).

Countries that have come through the recent global financial crisis better than the rest have been those with strong export machines, such as Germany and China. But it is no longer the US that they are exporting to: it is the fast growing emerging markets that are the destinations of choice.

JPMorgan today came out with research predicting a wave of global rate hikes in the next three months. So far only five countries have started to raise rates: Australia, Norway, India, Israel and Malaysia. JPMorgan predicts that number to rise to 14 over the next trimester.

"For a broad range of emerging market and commodity-producing nations, momentum is shifting decisively toward normalizing policy," writes the bank in today's note. The two biggest countries likely to raise rates are Canada and Brazil; Canada due to the improving economic sentiment in the US and Brazil due to the massive capital inflows it is experiencing.
