Morning Call. Market Overview for 21.09.2016


The Big Picture:

Thanks to expansive monetary policy by the ECB, Bank of Japan, Bank of England, amongst others. Interest rates in industrial nations at at historic lows, reaching levels not seen in 5000 years. Alone the ECB buys 80 billion Euros worth of bonds per month. In 1998 LTCM, a fund run by Nobel Prize winning managers, came in to difficulties. The total amount in question was 5 billion USD. The then Fed Chair, Alan Greenspan, spoke of the financial system being at the edge of an abyss. Today the ECB buys 80 billion Euros of bonds a month. That is real inflation and a catastrophic situation for savers and investors. Momentarily 13 Trillion Euros worth of bonds are at negative interest rates. It remains interesting, as to how this situation will end.
