Could the ‘Flattener’ Trade Be Running Out of Steam?

2016-10-06 00:00:00.0   |   External Site

Rates traders for months have been betting that long-term bond yields will fall relative to short-term ones — and for months it’s been paying off. But that bet on the so-called flattening of the yield curve may be in the nascent stages of reversal. Strategists at Ned Davis Research say they’re closing out their so-called “flattener” trade, citing a shift in technical and fundamental indicators. “The flattening trend has lost a great deal of momentum,” said the strategists, led by Joe Kalish, in a research note. They added: “Some important intermediate-term downtrend lines were recently broken, suggesting the days were numbered for the flattener trade.” Read more...

Stock Market Meltdown for Bond Proxies in Worst Week Since April

2016-09-29 00:00:00.0   |   External Site

Increasingly hawkish Federal Reserve rhetoric is making a bad stretch worse for stocks investors fell in love with for their high dividends.

Utilities dropped for a fifth straight day Thursday, leaving them poised for the worst week since April. Real estate and consumer staples shares were also in retreat as the odds for higher interest rates this year pushed past 55 percent. The S&P 500 fell 0.9 percent to 2,152.27 at 1:22 p.m. in New York, with financial shares joining the retreat amid growing concern that Deutsche Bank AG’s woes could spread.

Losses for companies broadly defined as bond surrogates mark a continuation of a trend that’s held since the middle of the year, when utilities, drugmakers, real-estate and staples shares began to weaken. An exacerbating influence is the relative size of the industries: according to Ned Davis Research, stocks in the category trade with a higher market capitalization compared to industries like banks than any time since the bull market began in March 2009.

The Curious Incident of Volatility In Three Months’ Time

2016-08-16 00:00:00.0   |   External Site

Although there’s a lot of risky stuff on the political calendar for the next three months, options markets remain silent. Why? In “Silver Blaze,” Sherlock Holmes investigates the disappearance of a racehorse. He points out “the curious incident of the dog in the night-time,” meaning the dog did nothing at all. Had strangers broken in, Holmes reasons, surely it would have barked. Therefore, the dog had to be acquainted with the thief. Something similar appears to be happening in financial markets. The three-month implied volatility of the euro against the U.S. dollar has dropped around 3 percentage points since June and, after a bumpy year, is now back at 2014 levels. This is a gauge of how expensive it is for investors to use options to hedge themselves against swings in the euro versus the dollar happening three months from now. Read more...

Here’s One Reason for Optimism on Oil Prices

2016-08-10 00:00:00.0   |   External Site

Hedge funds are betting that swelling inventories will help push the price of oil lower, but this glut still looks milder than past bearish cycles in crude. The price of oil has fallen roughly 14% since its most recent peak in June, as investors worry that large stocks of gasoline and crude, coupled with the continued strength of global production, will put pressure on this market. The gasoline glut could hurt profits at refineries, pushing them to buy less oil, some investors say. More than 40% of the bets made by “managed money,” mostly hedge funds, are for the price of the U.S. benchmark—West Texas Intermediate—and petroleum products to fall, according to data from the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Hedge funds haven’t been so gloomy since January, when oil prices were in free-fall. Read more...

Foreign Appetite For U.S. Securities Has Taken a Drubbing

2016-08-01 00:00:00.0   |   External Site

When the Federal Reserve hiked benchmark rates in December, the initial jump in the short-end of the nominal U.S. yield curve raised expectations that foreign buyers would snap up the country's assets, thanks to their yield relative to those of other developed markets ravaged by low policy rates. In fact, net foreign flows to the U.S. have been decidedly weak this year, thanks to an exodus by foreign central banks and sovereign wealth funds, who've been dumping U.S. securities in order to raise cash to put to work at home.
