Memento
US US Bond Market
A U.S. bond market giving the impression of having temporarily found a level of equilibrium with a first rate hike of 1/4 Pts. From a general point of view, bond market volatility should remain in a consolidation phase (this does not avoid the peaks) unless anxiety-provoking events such as the sound of boots being heard more loudly and simultaneously in the four corners of the world (surely a coincidence) are added to the market.
1 - 3 month : The 1 month yield pattern remains unchanged. The 3 month yield, still in a cycle of upward pressure, continues to rise in a volatile environment. The spread between the two maturities, widened to 13 bps with the rise in yield and volatility of the 3 month. The continued rise in the spread leads us to believe that the market is not considering a rate hike before the FOMC meeting in March. In retrospect, repeated rate hikes have always been at least three months apart.
2 - 5 year : The upward and then downward movements at the end of the week in 2- and 5-year yields are part of the context of reduced upward pressure.
10 - 30 year : The upward and then downward movements in 10 and 30 year yields are also part of a context of reduced upward pressure. The 10 year index of volatility continues to rise, while the 30 year index is entering a phase of stagnation.
EUEuropean bond market
European bond markets with a general decrease in volatility, especially in French bonds, and stagnant yield curves.
1 - 3 month : Still under declining bullish pressure, French and German 3 month yields eased slightly with a sharp drop in volatility for the French. Conversely, Italian yield continued to rise under sustained upward pressure.
2 - 5 year : The yields under declining upward pressure remained stable despite a strong yo-yo movement for the German and French.
10 year & spreads : The 10 year yields under waning upside pressure remained stable despite a strong yoyo movement. Spreads as a whole have stagnated except for the French to German spread which has continued to widen. The Italian against the Spaniard could have an acceleration and will be to watch.
EURUSDEURUSD parity

A EURUSD pair slipping in a calm can be misleading.

WorldEquity Indices

More volatile stock market indices. From a technical point of view, the end of the US QE questioning on the valuation of stocks and the anticipation of a future QT (J. Wang) presaging a drain on liquidity should continue to weigh on the US indices and by ricochet worldwide.

NOTE : the sound of boots initiated by Russia could quickly become anxiety-provoking. In this global game, China and Iran, which are "allies" of Russia, could use the Ukrainian crisis to advance their pawns against the West. This situation, for the moment still under control, should bring bullish support to the dollar and the barrel of oil. To watch.
