Credit Bubble Bulletin

…There was a razor-sharp response from financial marketplaces to your Sintra speech. You’ll want looked at the Fed experience of 2013. Is there any concern in the Governing Council that the so-called tantrum or an identical reaction can occur in the eurozone when you start talking about changes in your stance? Draghi: “I won’t touch upon market reactions, but i want to give you the important thing of our exchanges: essentially, inflation is not where it is wanted by us to be, and where it ought to be.

Draghi continuing: “But let me just make clear one thing: after a long time, we are experiencing a solid recovery finally, where we only have to await income and prices to go towards our goal. This exchange gets to the heart of the momentous issue. Recall the swift market reaction to “hawkish” Draghi’s feedback from Sintra (June 26-28 ECB Forum on Central Banking) and, after soon, ECB officials expressing that markets acquired misinterpreted his remarks.

Markets this week were awaiting “dovish” clarification. Draghi beat expectations soundly. The above (astute) question referred to the Fed’s 2013 “taper tantrum” experience. Although it received scant attention at the right time, Bernanke’s – “The Fed will push back against a tightening of financial conditions” – response to incipient market instability proved a pivotal extension to his historical monetary experiment.

In hindsight, this is the chairman’s vague introduction of a New Age Mandate: Central Banks Will Underpin Risk Embracement Through the entire Financial Markets. The Fed was ready to employ intense stimulus measures in the event of self-reinforcing risk aversion and causing market place liquidity issues. The Federal Reserve was signaling that it was prepared to respond quickly to de-risking/de-leveraging dynamics – as time passes profoundly impacting risk-taking and securities and derivatives prices throughout the marketplaces. No would the Government Reserve confine market-supporting procedures to turmoil backdrops much longer.

Apparently no reason never to upgrade the Fed put to 24/7. Their liquidity backstop was to ensure that offering momentum had not been permitted to materialized. Sure enough, Bernanke’s New Mandate was a big success available on the market (S&P500 up more than 50% since 2013) and has been readily adopted by central bankers around the world, including Draghi’s ECB certainly.

So few detractors. And typical of government “mandates,” adopted they’re almost impossible to repeal once. “Will push back against a tightening of financial conditions” explains at least a few so-called “conundrums.” How come the VIX (and risk premia more generally) so low? What makes sovereign yields remaining near historical lows regardless of the Fed raising rates and other central banking institutions planning to do the same?
