    Sniffing out the Next Recession

    By David Ader 09 Mar 2018

    I was trying to fit in something about stormy days for trade (not the least being the January deficit), Productivity (which was 0% in Q4), Home Sales (a weak spring says the NAR, WSJ Rising Rates Pose Test for Housing Market), the broad declines in the Citi Economic Surprise indices, and all those departures from the Trump Administration, but figured that would be too cheap a shot.

    Is There Anyone Left Who Likes Bonds?

    By David Ader 02 Mar 2018

    I don’t know but I heard Powell and I didn’t get much more of a hawkish sense than I had before; Dec Fed Fund futures only rose about 4 bp adding marginally odds of three hikes by the end of the year, and gave all that up by week’s end.  In context, the odds of 2% or more in December are near 68.5%% from just shy of 64% a week earlier.  Frankly, I think that pretty much prices three in for now and I’m not just trying to talk a bullish position. I just don’t see that it was a more determined hawkish lean than the market already had.  I mean, 4 bp… really? Read more from David Ader's latest musings.

    “The Bond Market's Doing Our Work For Us”

    By David Ader 23 Feb 2018

    I must admit I was surprised by the market’s reaction to the Fed Minutes and I was not alone (oh god, please don’t tell me he’s going to talk about Fed Fund futures!).   Indeed, Fed Fund futures in the moments after the release and into the aftermath as stocks reversed and bonds sold off did essentially nothing.  Of all things out there, surely Fed Fund futures would respond if the Minutes were somehow an alert to a more hawkish trajectory.  That they didn’t is, I think, is the crux of the matter; why everything else sold off is another story about which I can only speculate, especially the belly to 30s steepening.  There I’ll put it up to positions, but that’s cheap.

    A Respite

    By David Ader 16 Feb 2018

    “Coming on the heels of the massive tax cut approved in December, last week’s budget agreement was a breathtaking abdication of fiscal responsibility.”  Thus, begins Lou Crandall’s MMO for Feb 12 and he could have taken those words from my mouth but beat me to the punch.  Since I’ve stolen that, I might as well offer a version of a chart Lou used which is a variation on the theme of many I’ve sent out; the budget as a % of GDP.

    Abby Someone. Who? Abby Normal.

    By David Ader 09 Feb 2018

    “I understand. You found paradise in America, had a good trade, made a good living…” thus begins the opening lines to “The Godfather” when Vito Corleone hears Bonasera’s request for justice.  Think about it; we found paradise with our 401ks, had on good trades, and all that.  Now, like Bonasera, we’d like the Don to make an offer the folks trading ETNs can’t refuse.

    Sauce for Bond Goose and Equity Gander

    By David Ader 02 Feb 2018

    It’s hard to be a bond bull when everyone everywhere is telling you it’s the end of the bond bull market, as if the rise from the absolute lows 100 plus bp ago and five Fed hikes wasn’t enough.  Just about everything is about rising bond yields.  Front page headlines read like the WSJ’s “Government Bonds Swoon World-wide” and the FT’s “Bond investors’ dash for the doors fuels concern about strength of equities rally” and those are merely the tip of the iceberg.

    Nothing Exceeds Like Excess

    By David Ader 26 Jan 2018

    There might be something disingenuous going on, but what do I know? I specifically refer to Washington, but I’ll expand that to the investment community, or at least some of it. In sum, let me rain on someone’s parade. I read this week that Trump Administration leaked a $ trillion infrastructure plan which a few hours after it was leaked went to $1.7 trillion as announced by Trump -- that’s not a leak but a gush. The plan has that 50% of the appropriations for it going towards grants to public and private initiatives. Here’s a link to the original report ( I’m not sure how this all works, but according to some of the reports on this the Administration has sought $200 bn in grants over 10-yr to “leverage” investment from state, local and private sources” to get to that $1 trillion and presumably more to get to $1.7 trillion.

    Curious, have you come across anything recent about bonds yields rising?  A Google search on “end of bond bull market” pulled up 13.3 million articles about that in 0.45 seconds.  A search on “bond bear market” came up with 11.4 mn.  In context, anything related to bond bull or market came up with 1-4 mn references.  I guess that cat is out of the bag, huh?

    More Jitters Than News hit Bonds

    By David Ader 12 Jan 2018

    The bond market’s second week of the year was yet another setback aided by reports of diminished interest in things bond from Japan (reducing QE size) and reports that Chinese officials are recommending a slowing or halting its buying of Treasuries.  That, combined with a series of other nuances, drove a technical selloff and we all know that technical moves, in this case 10s breaking 2.50%, have a momentum all their own though requiring fundamental rationales.  The latter were around (see the above bullets) though supply when the market’s already on the defensive surely adds to the pressure.

    Old News Still Sends Chill to Bond Market

    By David Ader 05 Jan 2018

    It’s been a tough start to the New Year if you’re a fan of the bond market.  Tuesday, for example, saw stories with headlines like “With Red Tape Losing Its Grip, Firms Ante Up” and that from the New York Times.  The story was about business confidence translating to investment. The same day the Wall Street Journal headlined “Sluggish Wages See Uptick” and “Pensions Keep Up Costly Market Bets.”  The former was about pay in low UNR areas rising at twice the national average and the latter about CalSTERs deciding NOT to sell $50 plus billion in stocks to move into bonds.

    Looking at 2018 and Beyond

    By David Ader 15 Dec 2017

    The end of the year is upon us. While markets move each and every day, we still like the calendar constraints to put a given year in context and so with this final Musings of 2017 I foray into 2018 and some big-picture thinking. I’m never wedded to my year-ahead views, but they serve as a roadmap and keep me aware of where things change (and where I’m wrong). With that, here are the key bullets on my mind.

    Confessions of a Yield Curve Junkie

    By David Ader 08 Dec 2017

    It seems to me these days the flattening yield curve is our only constant. Perhaps I’m tired and certainly uninspired, but then a glance at a 10-year yield chart would tell you I have company. This could reflect how little new, critical, information is in the market; we have more Fed hikes being priced in, against still subdued inflation, and we can debate what the tax plan will actual do to boost GDP.
