Populism Germany style: “When saving makes you poor: zero interest rates are destroying the wealth of Germans.”

Today’s cover of @DerSPIEGEL , Germany’s most important weekly magazine.

The lead article is less biased, but is it responsible to further feed populist sentiment?
Germany is sliding into a dangerous anti-Europe, anti-ECB hysteria, which threatens to damage the ECB‘s credibility, the euro and ultimately all of Europe.

It is high time for an honest dialogue and for exposing the 20 German myths about #ECB monetary policy:
20 German myths about ECB monetary policy:

Myth #1:
The ECB alone is responsible for low interest rates.

Fact: interest rates are the results esp. of high savings and low investment, esp. in Germany. Governments have a big impact on interest rates via investment and growth.

A thread summarizing ALL of our analysis on #China .

I think this is required as there are still misconceptions what's going on in the world #economy at the moment.

Everything starts with the notion that China (not the #Fed or the #ECB) has been driving the global cycle. 1/
This was revealed to us, when we were making an in-depth analysis on the world economy in early 2017 to understand, why it had recovered with a break-neck speed from the deep slump of 2015.

The 'culprit' for this mystery turned out to be the shadow banks of China. 2/
Their size to GDP three-folded in just one year, meaning that in 2016 China launched what was probably the biggest debt-stimulus operation ever seen.

It was no surprise that the world economy made a miraculous recovery.

But, China had been on a perilous path much longer. 3/

I don't get, why many analysts and economists seem to think that the worse (#recession) might have been avoided.

Their view seems to be based on handful of 'leading' and/or backward looking indicators that have "stabilized".

This angle misses the point completely. 1/
Many seem to forget that #China, not the #Fed or the #ECB, has driven this global expansion.

China has accounted around 60% of all new money (debt) created and majority of capital investments produced since 2009. 👇

What is China doing now? 2/
If there's just one article an investor can read this fall, it's definitely this. 👇

It explains, why there's not going to be a similar reflation trade, like in 2015/2016, this time around.

China simply does not have the room to stimulate as much. 3/…

#ECB thread

Here's what analysts are expecting:
1) Majority expect 10bps rate cut to -50bps (minority 20bps cut)
2) Tiering
3) Restart of Asset Purchases : sov +corp bonds of EUR 30bn x 12 months (risk of LESS given recent hawkish commentary)
4) Enhanced Fwd Guidance
1) rate cuts

The interest rate mkt is expecting 50% probability of a 20bp cut (or 15bps priced in for Sep) and another ~10bps in December, troughs at 34bps cuts next summer

Rate cut to 1/ target EUR & 2/ extra kicker for TLRO3 which starts in Sep 3/ stimulate credit demand
But whether stimulating credit demand leads to pick up in nominal growth is questionable-chart from Citi below

@LHSummers recently called negative interest rate policy 'black hole economics' because marginal positive is offset by counterproductive side effects incl misallocation

I've been very outspoken about #Brexit, which has raised some questions of why. Here, my five cents.

First, I am a big believer of democratic decision making. The straighter the better.

In my opinion, Brexit ref was a pinnacle in the long history of democracy in Britain. 1/
Second, the EU has continuously grown less democratic (despite of the claims to the contrary).

While first refs on EU were conducted in good practice, problems started when referendums turned against further integration. These include the double-refs in Denmark and Ireland. 2/
But, it got worse.

When European debt crisis, which actually was a (masked) banking crisis of Germany and France, threatened to break the euro, the response of European leaders was to bypass European laws.

Most notably, bailouts breached Articles 125, banning mutual... 3/

Tomorrow the European Parliament will host a hearing with Christine @Lagarde, in order to confirm her appointment as #ECB president. Ahead of the session, Lagarde answered 70 questions from MEPs - we read them all so you don't have to. THREAD👇…
1/ On the positives: Lagarde wants the #ECB to make climate change a priority. She committed to ensure the ECB plays an active role in the @NGFS_ and, "as soon as such a taxonomy is agreed, the ECB will need to assess whether and how it can apply it to QE."
2/ However @Lagarde is obstinate to follow the business as usual "market neutrality" approach of the #ECB in Corporate QE. We're still wondering how mirroring markets in portfolios is consistent with the need to cope with market failures and create new investment incentives. 🤔

#ECB is likely to crash EUR in attempt to stimulate EU-economy🤦‍♂️(incompetence in ECB is staggering!). Wait for waterfall moment in #EURUSD. Currently flirting with LT-trendline. Target 0.85-0.91 #HZupdates
Major drop in #EURUSD will send #USD #DXY soaring (following pot. ST weakness). LT-target for DXY is >111. This is likely to be the trigger for REAL Fed intervention, which will push economy out of Deflation #HZupdates
Rally in #USD will push #Gold (#XAUUSD) into major decline in final wave C, which will take yellow pet rock below 1000 USD. Imo no way that structure of rally since 2015 is new Bull market. It is ZigZag-correction topping ~1480 (here!) or ~1590 (-1600). Major Bull trap #HZupdates

Germany, yesterday, issued a 30-year bond that offers negative yield (average yield of -0.11%).

This typically means that investors are paying German government to hold their debt. Why would investors invest in such a bond? Thread 1/8
The coupon set on these bonds (or Bunds, as they are called in Germany) is 0% i.e. the government will not pay any interest at all on these bonds.

In comparison, if GoI issues a 30 year bond today, the interest rate offered would be ~7%. 2/8
A negative yield of -0.11% means that an investor in this bond will pay 11 basis points per year to German Govt to borrow the sum i.e. an investment of Rs. 100 in these bonds would yield ~Rs. 97 in 30 years, a loss of ~Rs. 3. 3/8

Good morning! 😁Deflationary phase is developing in economy. Stay tuned for my perspectives on coming developments in markets based on charts - technical and fundamental analysis #HZupdates thread coming up!
SP500 recovered some of the loses from early trading this week. Still, I think we have seen the top of the Expanding Diagonal, and we are currently in the Deflationary part of the crisis, where growth in economy is rolling over. Target ~2050 by Q1/Q2 2020 #HZupdates
#SP500 - will we see rally to 2950 for pot. top of wave 2 (black) before reversal and strong decline? That would close the gap in market from early Aug. #HZupdates

Mega #ECB thread- bear w me:)

Thursday’s mtg is shaping up to be an extremely important one

Most analysts expect #Draghi to tilt further dovish & indicate a “package of measures” for Sep but not act YET
Why wait? 1/ Fed first 2/ New projections in Sep 3/ Hv to agree on package
Reminder: what are ECB’s tools? ⚒:
- forward guidance (currently calendar based)
- rate cuts
- QE (sovereign, agencies, corporates)* I’ll come back to this point
- bond re-investments (ppl often forget this one)
So... What’s priced?
- Market is pricing in 3bps cuts July, 13bps in Sep

What about QE? *tougher to estimate
- Barclays compare mkt reaction post Whatever It Takes to post-Sintra (not really 🍎 to 🍏 but ok) : strong rally already in periphs ; look at BTPs & 5y5y infl 👀

🔎Our scenario is based on the strong assumption of a UK exit from the EU without a withdrawal agreement #Brexit #HardBrexit🇬🇧🇪🇺
Mainly, expectations are:
🔻a recession in the #UK and a slowdown of #growth in the euro zone
🔻3 #Fed rate cuts of 25 bps in July, September & December 2019
🔻a cut in the deposit rate by the #ECB by 10bps in September 2019

Hearing many exaggerations these days. So, here an attempt to put things into perspective: (1) yes, (s)election of new #EU leadership involves power politics in #EP & #EUCO & between them, but that's how politics & democracy function – at all levels incl. #EU – get used to it;
(2) yes, #Spitzenkandidaten process not perfect, but it is here to stay although it needs to be reformed before 2024 #EP elections (incl. introduction of #TransnationalList) – 2019 experience should provide lessons to everyone (including European & national political parties);
(3) yes, #EP increasingly runs risk of being sidelined in leadership (s)election process, but majority in Parliament can still agree on common candidate for COM-P, who has a chance to be nominated by #EUCO;

By the end of 2019, the #Eurozone Benchmark interest rates, i.e. the overnight #EONIA rate and the #EURIBOR family (with maturities from 1 week up to 12 months), will either be replaced or their calculation methodology will be radically reformed.
The benchmark rates calculation methodology is not compliant with the #EU Benchmarks Regulation (BMR), applied from Jan. 1st, 2018, which emerged in the aftermath of the #LIBOR & #EURIBOR market manipulation scandals & the #2008_financial_crisis.… @BIS_org
On September 14th, 2018, the working group on euro risk-free rates (#WG_EuroRFR), set up by the @ECB, the @FSMA_info , @ESMAComms & the @EU_Commission, proposed the ECB’s #€STR as the replacement of #EONIA

For almost two years now, I've been randomly but constantly been drawn into discussions about the benefits of the euro.

The simple fact is that at the macro level, there are basically none. In the firm-level, especially in the SME -level, there are few. But, 1/
The question is, which should weigh more? The larger single-currency financial markets or a floating exchange rate that corresponds to the macroeconomic and political conditions of each country.

I think that answer, undeniably, is that the latter is more important. 2/
This is because global financial markets are very open and developed nowadays. Funding and hedging is widely available.

However, cutting wages and prices in a #recession has proven very difficult as it has been since the end of the 'liberal era' in early 1900's. 3/

1. Politicians are lying to you: For almost 10 years we had near zero percent #interest, #ECB & #FED printed billions of $ & € creating huge asset #bubbles in #stocks & #properties. On top thousands of foreigners bought "cheap" properties in GER.

#Habeck #Enteignungen
2. On top many cities, especially #Munich, allowed only few new properties to be build - For 3 new families that reached Munich only 1 new home was build!
This scarcity is by design, since it inflates the value of existing #properties, enriching the "haves".
#Habeck #Enteignungen
3. The next money printing scam are all the regulations that hit home-builders in the last plus 10 years: "Dämmung","energetische Sanierung" (to prevent loss of heat/energy) and more is expensive & thus reduces the numbers that can afford a home & increases #rents.

the @Europarl_EN is about to pass a new macro-finance initiative that threatens fiscal policy space for Euro Member States - 'far from being a stabilizing mechanism for the euro, SBBS would become yet another instrument of fiscal discipline'.
SBBSies wont do much good when a euro country comes under pressure in sovereign bond markets, but it can do significant damage #safeasset
no matter how many speeches and op-eds we get from European leaders calling for a Europe that can oppose US and China, we wont get one unless we can create a single safe asset. If only the new #ECB governor would fight for this #Benoit2019
