Without a doubt, there was a significant shift in the outlook on central bank monetary policy this week. In fact, the events of the week may represent the official market acceptance of the “end of the easy money” era.
Draghi told us deflation is over and reflation is on. Yellen told us we should not expect another financial crisis in our lifetimes. Carney at the Bank of England told us removal of stimulus is likely to become necessary, and up for debate “in the coming months.” And even the Finance Minister in Japan joined in, saying Japan was recovery from deflation.
With that, in a world where “reflation” is underway, rates and commodities lead the way.
Here’s a look at the chart on the 10-year yield again. We looked at this on Tuesday. I said, the “Bottom May Be In For Oil and Yields.” That was the dead bottom. Rates bounced hard off of this line we’ve been watching …
This reflation theme confirmed by central banks has put a bid under commodities…
That’s especially important for oil, which had been trading down to very dangerous levels, the levels that begin threatening the solvency of oil producers.
That’s a 9% bounce for oil from the lows of last week!
This all looks like the beginning of another leg of recovery for commodities and rates (with the catalyst of this central bank guidance). Which likely means a lower dollar (as we discussed earlier this week). And a quieter broad stock market (until growth data begins to reflect a break out of the sub 2% GDP funk).
Have a great weekend.
