Future Trouble in Macro? Liquidity Traps and a Slowing Global Credit Impulse
Could a slowdown in credit creation and a tightening of monetary conditions push bond yields lower and threaten risk assets? Alfonso Peccatiello, head of fixed income portfolio management at ING Germany and publisher of the Macro Compass, believes that’s possible. Peccatiello contends that inflation is indeed transitory, and, disagreeing with the “bond vigilantes,” he argues that cash, bonds, and volatility protection will perform better in this environment than high-beta assets such as commodities and bank stocks.
