Problem in US market mysterious phenomenon bonds

The problem in the US market: the mysterious phenomenon bonds returned

It seems that investors are not
can get enough American
government bonds. Despite the fact that the head
Fed Janet Yellen hinted strongly
Last week, the regulator can
to raise interest rates in June,
Investors went out and bought more
bonds. The yield on 10-year Treasury
bonds, which was
at the level of 2.11% last week, fell
to 1.94% during the press conference Yellen
on Wednesday. And it still varies
around these levels. Typically, the yield
Bonds has always lowered when prices

But here’s the problem: the situation
the market should be fully
the opposite – when the Fed increases
rates, bond yields should
go up. Alan Greenspan once
I dubbed this "mystery". He was
concerned about this 10 years ago, because
that complicating the Fed’s job.

Former Fed chief
used this word in February 2005,
to describe the fact that the long-term
Treasuries lost yield,
Although the Fed raised short-term rates.

Current chairman
Yellen Federal Reserve System
I have not yet spoken about this “enigma”
bonds. But you’d be surprised if she does not think about it. The fact is that usually
raising rates on short-term
loans made to
keep the economy and financial markets
from overheating. The yield on 10-year-olds
government bonds is an important reference
point for consumers and investors.
It also affects the rates on mortgage

many financial
experts believe that the long-term
interest rates were too low
long – they say it is from the middle
2000s. In their view, low rates
helped to create a bubble in the market
property, which led to a great
failures in the sector, and the Great Recession
major crisis credit sector.
Of course, Yellen would like to avoid such
terrible consequences.

But low yields
long-term bonds are often
a sign of economic weakness. If
The Fed wants to raise interest rates,
when the market is concerned about the slowdown
economy, it can once again become
problem. Simply put, the bond market
The Fed seems to be saying that the economy is still
not strong enough to adequately
to respond to the increase in rates –
even the smallest.

And another warning
by CNN-Money: Yellen may
"speak" a higher yield
bonds than it actually is. This
trick often used Greenspan. After
his mention of the “puzzle” of bonds
in 2005, the yield on 10-year bonds
It grew from about 4% to 4.7% for
a few weeks.

The Fed is still there
$ 4.5 trillion on its books. Despite
that the Fed is no longer buying new
bonds, it still reinvests
principal payments on bonds. Yellen
again said last week that
The Fed will continue to reinvest in the market
bonds, until he feels that
“Economic conditions are sufficiently
appropriate to start raising
rate. ”

Of course, worry about
many bonds – even among foreign
customers – in particular, China and
Japan – there is a large volume of Treasury
US bonds as the market
The US is still considered the safest
market in the world to invest their money. In addition, bonds
become even more attractive
now, when Europe began their ransom
The program of quantitative
easing (like the one held
Fed up of the previous year). profitability
European bonds even lower than the
rates on US debt securities. but this
mystery can not last indefinitely.
Sooner or later, the bond market or
The Fed itself will signal that
it’s time to change something.

If the 10-year bond
stay at such a low level when
The Fed will start tightening monetary
policy, there is a risk that short-term
interest rates will be higher than the long-term
interest rates. This phenomenon economists
called inverted yield curve.
And it’s not very good – it happens
before every recession in the last 50

Oil fell sharply on Thursday evening and now

Oil fell sharply on Thursday evening, and now timidly tries to recover

Yesterday, oil quotes
much fallen on the forecasts in anticipation of the meeting
OPEC, which should decide to keep
current oil production quotas or not.
Following the auction on Thursday, the futures price
Brent crude oil with
July delivery fell to $ 62.12
per barrel, WTI – up
$ 58.00 per barrel. Today, the price in the morning
a little rose – Brent reached
to $ 62.26
a barrel and WTI – up
$ 58.13.

Recall that today
It will be the first for this year’s summit
OPEC. If the cartel confirms the existing
quota for oil production at 30 million
barrels per day (or even lift
it), it will push oil prices down
and bad for the oil producing currencies
countries. In particular, such a decision can
an extremely negative impact on the course
Russian ruble.

“OPEC sticks
strategy for gaining market share,
therefore, reduce the quota for the production of the cartel
not profitable – says Ekaterina Krylova,
PSB analyst. – To end
year we expect oil price
$ 61 per barrel, and the short-term
– $ 62-65 a barrel. There is,
however, the risk that the price will fall below. “

As experts estimate,
OPEC is already producing more than 31 million
barrels of oil per day, which is
the highest since the end of 2012. plus another
Complicating the situation is Iran, which is not
first time declares that he is ready
regain market share and again
become an active exporter of OPEC. Minister
Oil Bijan Namdar Zanganeh country
said that Iran, after the lifting of sanctions
rapidly regain its strength and
enhance production at 1 million barrels per day
(Now – 2.8 million barrels per day).
