Investment Markets Overview – w/e 3 Aug 2012

After last week’s hype over central bank “easing,” there were no moves from the three major ones. The FOMC, the Bank of England and the ECB left rates at 0.25%, 0.5% and 0.75% respectively with no mention on when the next dose of heroin ( er,sorry, QE, LTRO, Twist or whatever other name they dream up) is injected to satisfy investors. Rumours are suggesting the Fed will act at the Jackson Hole annual bash, held on the 31st August, whilst the BOE will act in November, when the current QE program ends. For super Mario, he allegedly will have to await the 12th September German high court decision on the legality of the new bailout fund, the ESM.
