Markets Struggling for Direction

Equity and bond markets appear to be struggling for direction with some well documented dynamics still very much in play. The 800lb gorilla in the form of a lift off in US interest rates continues to dominate market chatter...

Equity Markets on Edge

With financial markets so overvalued, and with so many ticking time bombs around, we remain on high alert for a deterioration in market performance that could presage a bear market in equities and other risk assets. What is interesting about looking back at past bubbles is that it seems obvious in hindsight that valuations were in bubble territory and that future cash flows would simply not justify the price paid by investors at the peak. It is also possible to identify, with hindsight, market peaks and troughs by simply...

European Fund Market Report

In 2013 investors and fund managers alike became preoccupied with an environment where interest rate rises were likely imminent. A year on and monetary tightening that was expected on the back of the tapering expectations of the U.S. quantitative-easing programme failed to materialise. In early 2014 many bond fund managers were busy reducing their duration in expectation...

Are Investors Underestimating the Risks in Emerging Market Bonds?

During their chase for yield a number of investors have added emerging-market bonds to their portfolios, since these bonds seemed to be fairly valued and offered a yield suiting the needs of the investors. But, as always in a long bull market, some of the risks carried by these bonds might have been overlooked, and they have hit investors very hard when they appeared...

Swiss Bank Action Exposes Worrying Weaknesses in Markets

Financial markets were roiled this week as losses currently estimated in the hundreds of millions were realised in the wake of the Swiss National Bank (SNB) abandoning their currency floor with the Euro. The problem for the market in the short term is the worry that higher volatility will force leveraged investors to sell down positions across the board, and that this selling...

Deterioration in Emerging Markets

The deterioration in emerging markets and junk bonds in recent weeks is hardly a surprise but it is now certainly grabbing the attention of the mainstream media. The initial catalyst for the plunge in prices this month is the collapse in the price of oil. Unsurprisingly, energy producers in the emerging world and in the corporate world are under severe pressure...

Equity Markets Have Become Addicted to Central Bank Liquidity

The FOMC meeting this Wednesday marks a very important point because QE is expected to end. The importance of QE in supporting equity markets can be seen from the equity market rally that began on 16th October almost solely because an influential Fed Governor appeared on a financial news network to say that the Fed may consider not ending QE. These comments were...

The FED’S Credibility and the Efficacy of QE

It would appear that, as soon as there is a little trouble in equity markets, one of the more influential FOMC members does a 180 degree U-turn. He then blames everything that is going wrong on Europe. And finally, he suggests the FED should continue a policy that has been remarkably successful in generating asset price inflation whilst failing to ignite a sustainable economic recovery...

FX Leads Other Markets Ahead of the Fed Meeting

Financial markets are beginning to show signs of change. Volatility in FX markets in particular has increased (see first chart below) which is often the canary in the coal mine for other assets. Having witnessed a few false dawns already this year, we believe that the signals being generated this week are the real deal. The FOMC meets this week and is likely to discuss the timing...

Early Stages of a Bull Market for the US Dollar?

Expectations were high that Janet Yellen would be dovish in her speech at Jackson Hole. In the last several months, she has shown herself to be much more dovish than her regional board Governors, and this stance was fully expected to be seen this week. In fact, her speech was more balanced than many would have thought but it was certainly not hawkish...
