Investment Markets Overview – W/E 13th June 2014

Don’t you just love “politicians and policymakers?” Having spent years presiding over a massive credit bubble, which partially deflated during 2007/09, they have spent the past few intervening in “free-markets,” by way of quanto-easing and other stimulatory measures to encourage the usually risk-adverse sectors of society, such as savers and the elderly, to chase yield by way of junk-debt dressed up as AAA once more and/or buy-to let overpriced property. Now that the “curtain is being drawn open,” exposing their impotence on any control over interest rates, they are rapidly introducing regulation such as tighter lending criteria and jail time for market manipulators (anyone other than bankers would already face jail-time,) which effectively guarantees another bout of financial loss by the prudent who have chased the feckless into risk-assets. Meanwhile, it’s nice to see that “Government austerity is alive and well,” as the Bank of International Settlements, or BIS, state that total government borrowings are at $US100,000,000,000,000 as at mid-2013, which is 40% higher than the prior high of 2007.
