Central banks talk the markets up: Here we go again!

We've seen this play before: Financial markets start to tumble and central banks step in--not with actual stimulus quite yet but certainly with talk of stimulus. The European Central Bank and the German government took a turn today. Germany's Der Spiegel magazine reported today that Chancellor Angela Merkel and Finance Minister Olaf Scholz would be willing […]

Lagarde to run European Central Bank in what I see as positive move for global growth

Christine Lagarde will move from heading the International Monetary Fund to take over the helm at the European Central Bank from outgoing President Mario Draghi. I think this is a generally positive piece of news. First, putting Lagarde in the chair means that Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann won't take over from Draghi. Weidmann has advocated […]

Don’t fight the Fed…and the Bank of Japan, and the People’s Bank, and the European Central Bank

Once upon a time--as late as 2018--the consensus thinking in financial markets was that the Federal Reserve was but the first central bank to raise interest rates. Other central banks, most notably the European Central Bank, (but not the Bank of Japan, which may never raise interest rates again) were widely expected to follow suit. […]

One more for the list: ECB starts countdown to euro decision on December 13

The bank had decided that Europe's economy was strong enough for the central bank to wind down its purchases of bonds that have kept interest rates down in the EuroZone and depressed the value […]

European Central Bank tries to have it both ways–which leaves nobody very happy

At today's meeting, the European Central Bank agreed to phase out its bond buying by the end of 2018 with purchases of $17.7 billion (15 billion euros) in each of the final three months of the year. (Bond buying will continue at the current rate of 30 billion euros a month before dropping to 15 […]

Moving on: With North Korea summit done, markets focus on Central Bank Week

The summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un produced nothing of import, apparently meeting financial market expectations for "much ado about nothing," and all eyes on Wall Street have shifted to what I'm calling Central Bank Week. The U.S. Federal Reserve meets for two days, starting today, and is […]
