However, the last word goes to Glusdkin Sheff's David Rosenberg...
Go ahead, blame Powell. Don't tell anyone that foreign buying of Treasury debt has been cut in half this year and keep it a secret that the dollar share of world FX reserves has shrunk to a 5-year low of 62.5%. The USD role as the reserve currency is on its last legs.— David Rosenberg (@EconguyRosie) October 24, 2018
