The range of “money” pursuing trend-following strategies is currently an issue anytime marketplaces are in the midst of a meaningful decline. It’s a complicated backdrop extraordinarily. Wanting to simplify things, an initial focus in the years ahead will be the interplay between what I believe are faltering global “carry trades” and the lots of of trend-following trading associated with bloated ETF, leveraged speculating community and derivatives complexes. Previous market “flash crashes” quickly reversed course and worked well to rejuvenate the bull market. Importantly, this was permitted by liquidity emanating from expanding global “carry trades” – notably from the yen and euro funding higher yielding EM and “developed” corporates, but also from “carry trade” leverage funneling “money” into the Chinese Bubble.
And the analysis has once again circled back again to China. Chinese marketplaces are broken and policymaking is discredited. Chinese language officials may appreciate the chance of breaking the peg to the dollar now. At this point, however, maintaining the peg will demand the People’s Bank of China to blow through it’s reserves to fund what will surely be massive financial outflows.
And, suddenly, the marketplace appears to have awoken to the chance that China and other EMs have evolved into major sellers of US Treasuries (and bonds, gilts, etc.). It’s certainly worth noting the evolving powerful in Treasury and “developed” sovereign relationship trading. Treasuries just don’t benefit from “risk off” market tumult as before. Prices do, however, retreat quickly when “risk on” reemerges.
This may confirm an important active. For one, regardless of the troubling global backdrop, Treasuries now appear to offer a less favorable risk vs. Moreover, Treasuries these full days appear to provide a less effective hedge against equities, corporate EM and debt market dangers. And this may call into question the popular leveraged “risk-parity” strategies that have proliferated lately. One can go down the list these days and find out serious cracks developing many of the most popular “investment” and speculative trading strategies.
It sure appears the overall game is winding down. Of Sept put options and derivatives expire worthless Is it feasible that a lot? Of course. But that could change nothing essentially. Global “Carry Trades” have begun a problematic unwind. Liquidity will now be a concern. When it becomes a real issue, there’s going to be serious problems associated with each one of these Trend-Following Strategies. QE4 will be unavoidable.
