Dear , welcome to the TTC Market Intelligence series!

The TTC Institute is pleased to provide its Market Intelligence series of current and archived material to students and faculty. The financial markets are still under the influence of the COVID-19 crisis and the operations and activities of governments, central banks, institutions, businesses and workers are still very cautious. The situation presents a unique learning opportunity and the TTC Market Intelligence updates reflect this in their discussions.

We hold regular 30-minute general Market Intelligence updates and 40-minute specialist subject classes, so that we can discuss the main topics of the day and gain insights into how financial markets are behaving.

The 40-minute Market Intelligence specialist subject classes are designed to give you deeper insights into important topics and to focus on the key economic and business drivers in the markets, which asset classes are moving and why, political and government initiatives and where the stresses lie in the financial system.

By understanding important finance-related topics in a real-world context, students of finance will be able to link in current affairs to their studies and enhance their learning experience![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1587748093797{padding-top: 55px !important;padding-bottom: 55px !important;background-color: #eaeaea !important;}”][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

July 7th 2020: Markets anticipating full recovery but the spectre of a 90/100 recovery hangs over the global economy

• After a near 500 point rise in the Dow Jones overnight, US futures are close to 200 points down this morning as equity markets take a breather from a strong upward move in May and June.
• We have the US Jobless claims stats coming out this week and expectations are for another big cut in the number of people claiming unemployment benefit
• Economic statistics are improving but not to levels previously seen before the COVID-19 crisis. This is key because the likelihood is that there will be a 90%recovery. Will this be good enough to spur economic recovery to its previous levels?
• Asian markets were strong this week with the Chinese CSI 300 Index pushing higher than the Nikkei, while in Seoul the Kospi index closed slightly lower today at 2164.
• Social distancing measures to control the spread of the virus may be in place long after the lock-down is over, some governments have suggested, with implications for businesses and consumer spending

FTP Market Intelligence: The Demise of the US Dollar: Why everyone wants it to fail

• The Dow Jones Index was down 280 points overnight as Fed Chairman Powell poured cold water on the likelihood of a quick economic rebound following the COVID-19 Crisis in his FOMC meeting
• Keeping interest rates at zero until 2022 was not a sign of economic confidence and expectations are that the US economy will see a ‘long road ahead’ before it rebounds significantly
• Powell stated that Unemployment would be stubbornly high with record numbers losing their jobs during and after the crisis before conditions begin to lift.
• Global markets did not respond well to his statements with the US Dollar dropping half a cent, bond yields falling and Gold jumping 17 USD
• In Asia the markets lacked enthusiasm with the Nikkei Index down 2.3%, Singapore down 3% and the CSI 300 down 0.33%. The Hang Seng closed down 1.5%.
• European markets opened weaker this morning and Dow futures are down nearly 500 points suggesting a steep decline on the US open
• So, what next?

• The European markets are also strong with the DAX closing in on its recent YTD highs and the FTSE edging up while fears of a disorderly Brexit surface again
• Demonstrations around the world have not put pressure on markets so far and equity markets appear to be fully discounting a recovery and the next economic boom

• Asian markets were less enthused overnight with a mixed response to equity index prices and price changes hovering around zero
• Even though riskier assets like equities, corporate bonds and emerging market currencies have been outperforming over the last month governments are still encountering setbacks when trying to ease lockdowns which is delaying return to normality

• While the Nikkei Index is close to 2% up the CSI 300 and the Hang Seng are down following a night of unrest in Hong Kong
• European markets are expected to open stronger and Dow futures are already up 200 points suggesting a continuation from last night’s strong finish
• The last thing on investor’s minds at the moment is systemic problems in the financial system so do we have a problem?

• Asian markets were strong overnight on hopes of an economic recovery gathering pace as governments continue to ease lockdowns and business begins to lift off again
• Nikkei was up 2.55%, Hang Seng up 2.4% and CSI 300 up 1% as markets responded positively to expectations of improved trade and a reduction in stresses related to COVID-19 and potential new vaccines
• Last week the Dow Jones and S+P indices rose 3.2-3.3% but a strong opening to the US markets led Dow futures to a 650 point increase by mid-morning
• However, with hospitality, sport, leisure and restaurants unable to resume full opening activity consumers are less willing to spend on discretionary items and services and the savings ratios are high in many countries
• The continued rally in risky assets now fully relies upon the creation of a workable vaccine and the spending power of the consumer

• The impact of the virus on corporates and their working practices, supply chains and business dealings has been brought directly into the spotlight and investors are focusing much more on their ability to manage their operations ethically, sustainably and environmentally positively
• The coronavirus pandemic rapidly led to a wave of negative rating actions, yet the overall impact of ESG factors on credit profiles is generally limited compared to the problems associated with the liquidity and debt-servicing capacity of companies, many of which are in trouble.

Economic Impact in the Middle East: Coping with COVID-19

• Countries in the Middle East and North Africa were hit hard in early March 2020 by the healthcare and economic effects of Coronavirus along with a jump in oil price volatility
• While being very aware of their economic reliance on oil revenues, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Dubai had started ambitious high-tech schemes to attract tech companies and investment in order to counterbalance the effects of falling oil demand including plans for futuristic cities and the creation of Tech Hubs
• They reacted quickly to the spread of COVID-19 with infection rates because several countries had already been coping with another respiratory disease called MERS-CoV over the previous 5 years. The World Health Organisation stated that From 1 December 2019 through 31 January 2020, the National IHR Focal Point of Saudi Arabia reported 19 additional cases of MERS-CoV
• COVID-19 presented a far greater problem however, with severe economic and social healthcare issues that demanded a greater level of attention
• Apart from the immediate effect on nationals, migrant workers who made up a large proportion of the Middle east workforce were particularly vulnerable to COVID-19

• Businesses have been surprised how well their employees have adapted to working remotely and although there is still a requirement for many workers to be ‘at work’, thousands of employees may now be working from home.
• I asked several contacts in the wealth management and investment banking world what new types of entry-level work for graduates they were expecting to emerge from this time
• It appears that a number of new work opportunities have sprung up from the sudden changes to business practices and working conditions following COVID-19

• Markets are more ‘Risk On’ again as optimism grows over the easing of the lock-down although commodity prices are still very low signalling that a global recovery led by traditional measures may not be on the cards yet

IMF Special Drawing Rights (SDRS): Would these work if all else fails?

SDRs are an internal IMF accounting term and they represent units of account based on foreign exchange reserves that can be lent or exchanged for domestic currency. While the world is turmoil over the COVID-19 virus impact suggestions are that the IMF could act as the stabilising force for countries and governments by issuing SDRs directly in the form of loans thus removing the need for them to issue their own debt.[/vc_column_text][vc_accordion active_tab=”0″][vc_accordion_tab title=”More Info”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]This class discusses:
