Putin’s strategy is aimed at influencing the Ukrainian presidential election due on May 25, and its outcome may change his calculations, according to SGH Macro Advisors, a New York-based research group. Russia would be most comfortable with Yulia Tymoshenko, the former premier who was freed from jail last month after the fall of Yanukovych, SGH said in a March 17 report. Even a victory by Vitali Klitschko, a former boxing champion and one of the pro-Western political leaders, may allow for a thaw in relations with Moscow, it said.

"The Fed's next challenge is not over tapering, it's over rates and guidance," said Sassan Ghahramani, CEO of New York-based SGH Macro Advisors, which advises hedge funds."

However, the Fed next week may start off with a smaller reduction of $10 billion to $15 billion in its asset purchases, compared with previous market expectations of a $20 billion reduction or more, said Mr. Ghahramani, who is president and chief executive officer of SGH Macro Advisors. “They’re going to go ahead and get going with it in September, but go with a smaller number and then try to offset it with the promise to keep rates low in the future,” he predicted. That should help create a relatively “benign” market environment compared to the turmoil seen in emerging-market currencies and fixed income this summer after the Fed signaled possible tapering, he said. But in that environment, the U.S. dollar may not have as much room to rally strongly and could even weaken some, Mr. Ghahramani said. Instead, Mr. Ghahramani said he favors the Australian dollar, citing hopes for better government management of Australia’s slowing economy and signs of economic recovery in China.
