Most recents (24)

It was 73 degrees and sunny in #JacksonHole, Wyoming, today; a perfect day for all those who were there….
Yet, there were no #monetary policy officials present at the traditional location of the @KansasCityFed’s late-summer #economic policy symposium, since they were conducting a “virtual symposium.”
That symposium provided #ChairPowell the opportunity to lay out a reasonably sunny perspective on the U.S. #economy, but also one that was not out of the woods yet, in terms of Covid variant risk and a maximum #employment target still to be achieved.

How to trade relative value credit trading strategies (and derivative rv strategies in general)?

#credit #trading
1/ 𝗖𝘂𝗿𝘃𝗲 𝗧𝗿𝗮𝗱𝗲𝘀

The spread curve can be split into 2 parts, 3s10s and 10s30s, which both behave differently. In the long end, buy-and-hold, yield targeting investors (insurance/pension) account for most demand.
2/ Short end of the curve (2s10s) steepens when spreads rally and flattens when spreads sell-off.

Corporates news affects short-term creditworthiness, more than the long term.

How #credit cards were born.

A thread.
In the 1950s, a businessman in New York, Frank McNamara forgot his wallet while dining out, and had to call his wife to save him from washing the dishes.
This embarrassing episode led to the birth of the revolutionary Diners’ Club card- technically a charge card that requires full repayment at the end of each month.

Thanks to @steve_sedgwick & @cnbcKaren for having me on #CNBC #SquawkBox this AM.

What did we discuss? Well, #inflation of course!

I prepared some slides for the show which I'm happy to present in this thread.

Are people in denial or is the #centralbank money flood just drowning all the signals?
#Commodities, #freight, #carbon - and a whole lot besides - sure do cost a lot more, these days.

What are new graduates doing to be attractive to banks entry-level analyst programs?
@ABABankers @TheBanker @CIOonline @RiskDotNet @FT
Interesting question.
Banking sector MTO - Management Trainee Officers Program vary from country to country.
In my country Bank Staff Colleges train young graduates to become bankers.
The hired graduates have to undergo an intensive training course by attending several In-house boot camps or lecture hall workshops before they are moved into the formal workplace.

#DBL #DilipBuildcon

@srslysaurabh @avinashmehta123 @Agarwal_Ishu
Why should one look into this? And does this deserve a place in my portfolio. Here’s my rational below.

#DBL has secured orders worth INR 10703 Cr. In FY 21 and the total order book stands at approximately INR 26115 Cr. Orders are balanced between state govt. and central govt. entities. The company has successfully reduced risk on all parameters as far as business is concerned.

ये हैं सरदार मोहन सिंह, जिन्होने 2nd विश्व युद्ध में जर्मन के लिए लड़ाई लड़ी थी। युद्ध जीतने के बाद हिटलर ने उन्हें इनाम देना चाहा तो सरदार जी ने कहा कि हमें अच्छे से अच्छे हथियार दीजिए, क्योंकि हमें अपने देश को आजाद करवाना है। हिटलर ने फिर उन्हें जो हथियार दिये, वही (1/3)
हथियार आजाद हिन्द फौज ने इस्तेमाल किए और सही मायने मे इस लड़ाई में र॔गून में 50 हजार से ज्यादा अंग्रेजी फौज के मारे जाने क बाद ही अंग्रेजो ने भारत छोड़ने का फैसला लिया था । इसमें गाँधी और काँग्रेस का कोई योगदान नहीं था। बाद में इन इतिहास लिखने वालों ने आजादी का सारा (2/3)

#Russia #Belarus #Sochi #Credit

In view of the power struggle in Belarus, Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin has promised his ailing colleague Alexander Lukashenko a loan of 1.5 billion US dollars. The neighboring country should get help from Moscow "at this difficult moment,"
Putin said at a meeting with Lukashenko in Sochi. Due to the tense situation, Putin also spoke out in favor of constitutional reform in Belarus. "I think that is logical, timely and appropriate," said the Kremlin chief. Lukashenko had not ruled out possible changes.
However, the opposition emphasized that he only wanted to buy time with these promises. It is the first face-to-face meeting of the two since the controversial presidential election on August 9th.

1/ I ran a course on applied financial #modeling for #credit relationship managers last week.

In the day and age of #models, do #analysts still need to understand how models are put together and numbers projected.

Credit systems give us numbers. Do we need more?
#banking #risk
2/ To translate model figures into useful insights, an analyst must understand what drives a business and how those drivers would be impacted by future outlook.

A model is only as good as the input we plug in. Without relevant insight good models also produce garbage
3/ For instance, how would remote learning impact margins at school systems? Would enrollment numbers go up or down? How about non-core expenses?

When a senior #credit committee member asks a question or challenges an assumption, you can't hide behind the #model.

Three features of post-#pandemic economic recovery by Peng Wensheng:…
1. #savings gluts, or supply greater than demand, implying weak momentum for economic recovery, lowered interest rate and deflation pressure...1/6
2. expansion of credit has not turned into productive #investment, causing potential financial risk and a drag on the #economy;
3. virus containment measures have changed people’s behavior and the economic structure, with the digital economy gaining strong momentum...2/6
There are 3 ways to work off savings gluts: bank credits, direct financing and fiscal expansion. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses, but #credit expansion wouldn't be a wise choice, while a proper combination of the other two is expected to bring desirable outcomes...3/6

And, those good ole #FederalReserve policies again mean the monthly cost of an average #NewHome (approximated here) is back where it was 15 years ago...

...while, as a proportion of the average weekly wage )as per #NFP), well - you can see for yourself:-

As we always say, there'll always be a scarcity of something real as long as there are few such constraints on #money & #credit creation.
