    Bond Vigilantes Mon 15 Jul 2019 14:07

    A decade on from the Global Financial Crisis after multiple rounds of QE across the developed economies, we are stuck with mediocre growth rates, the anticipation of renewed policy easing and the prospect of yet more bond buying from the ECB.

    Yet much of the academic research into the impact of QE suggests there are diminishing returns from successive bouts of bond purchasing. It also seems likely that by boosting all asset prices in distorting the value of the risk free asset (gilts, treasuries, bunds etc) the unintended consequences – like a rise in inequality – might be doing more harm than good.

  • New post - M&G’s Leaviss: Beware the widow-maker Link
    Bond Vigilantes Fri 12 Jul 2019 10:49

    Throughout my 25 years in bond markets, there has always been one trade that becomes known as ‘the widow-maker’. Being underweight long-dated gilts was one, at a time when new pension regulations sent yields plummeting, and shorting the Japanese bond market also became deadly as the Bank of Japan slashed rates to zero.

    Today, widows and widowers are being made in the German bund market. Yields on the 10-year bund are now trading at record lows; bond investors pay 31 basis points per year for the privilege of lending to the German government.

    As yields collapse, forecasts and expectations are quickly revised lower. In the wake of Mario Draghi’s European Central Bank (ECB) speech last month we even saw one investment bank speculate that the 10-year bund yield could fall from -0.31%, to -2%. We have already had more than €2trn of quantitative easing (QE), negative rates, forward guidance promising to keep rates low, and cheap loans to banks – what more could we...
