"MANY" WILL BLAME TRUMP FOR "WHAT'S COMING"!
One of the more confounding aspects of the record bond selloff experienced in the past few days, is that it not only left broader equity indices unscathed, but took place as the Dow Jones hit a new record high..
This, as Goldman explains, is problematic, given that the ‘low yields for longer’ theme, i.e., the infamous "Fed Model" which was used to justify record high stock multiples purely as a function of record low bond yields, that underpins the valuation of several financial assets is under scrutiny. As Goldman puts it: "the continued focus" on the spike in bond yields "seems to us justified"..
The reason, as Goldman's Francesco Garzareli cautions, is that "some of the ongoing price action in fixed income ties up well with macro developments and remains overall favourable for risk assets..
But other traits of the repricing seem inconsistent with fundamentals, and are potentially destabilizing for broader markets"..
Where things get interesting, is where Goldman and Deutsche Bank diverge on their opinion whether the recent blow out in yields will serve to limit future equity gains..
Goldman is more sanguine:
At around 2%, US 10-year Treasuries are now at the low end of the valuation band around our preferred measure of macro ‘fair value’ in which they fluctuate 68% of the time..
Bonds in Germany, the UK and Japan are priced similarly on this dimension, by comparison, in the Summer, the degree of departure of yields from their ‘fair’ levels was a very rare event, occurring on average less than 5% of times..
The current level of long-term yields in the US and in other main economies is by no means ‘restrictive’ for growth. With both the BoJ and the ECB engaged in QE, reflecting low domestic inflation, we think the bond premium will stay in check..
As a result, Goldman believes that "risk assets have more headroom (around 30-40bp to be more specific on 10-year Treasuries, especially if the move is led by inflation) before higher bond yields become a threat for the expansion"..
So call it about 2.50% before stocks stall based on yield limitations, according to Goldman..
Even so, Garzarelli admits that there is a caveat to his optimism:
The speed of the move higher in yields has been elevated. This is by no means unusual, especially when the starting point is a big departure from ‘fair’..
But it comes at a time when it is difficult to ascertain how many investment strategies were predicated on yields staying ‘lower for longer’..
Retail redemptions from bond funds is a dynamic that needs to be tracked if the sell-off extends. The wealth exposure to rising rates is extremely high. And an increase in equity and credit volatility could follow, given the risk of a equity market correction down the line..
Which is where Deutsche Bank comes in with an assessment that is more troubling, because according to the bank's FX strategist Alan Ruskin, the knock on effect of higher yields and a stronger dollar is now set to have a "domino impact"..
Ruskin writes that the sharp turn taken by commodities, after U.S. bond market “took down” EM assets Thursday, will add to EM pain, and adds that there are signs that higher bond yields, “knock” of stronger USD are having a “domino impact,” taking down weakest risky assets first before moving on to next weakest..
In other words, the S&P is now limited by the bond complex how much higher it can go; Ruskin then disagrees with Goldman and sasyd that the apex of risk structure, U.S. equities, will be significantly restrained by U.S. bond yields..
The reason: there is only so much financial conditions tightening via bond yields and stronger USD that risky assets can take...

“If you are an ordinary person, then you can prepare yourself for war by moving to the countryside and building a farm, but you must take guns with you, as the hordes of starving will be roaming.

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.” Major L L B Angus
The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.

"Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.
This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.
By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."

Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?
