QE money is poorly missing its mark

America's QE cash injections are not making it far enough into the real economy. The money is funding speculative pursuits rather than stimulating the housing market - and it’s a similar story in France.

The share market is ignoring it, but the American economy is not performing as expected. And in Europe, France has suddenly emerged as a danger.

If both these trends continue then 2014 will be bumpier than markets expect.

The main objective of quantitative easing was to stimulate the US housing market, which in turn would drive the wider American economy.
