The Sand Is Shifting

Throw those projections out. If you want to know where equity markets are headed , then look no further than the chart below which shows the correlation between M1 and MSCI world Index. Central banks probably need to do something to turn around real M1 growth, otherwise MSCI World will face another tough run in H1 of 2019. Do you think CBs will turn around? Oh yes they will..

Debt-fuelled buybacks under threat as creditors get demanding ask GE or GM. Companies no longer ‘happy to use cash’ towards payouts. This was the significant tailwind for US stock market which is now under threat.

My two cents

The charts above are signaling that investment landscape is shifting. I can easily put the blame on central bankers for cutting the rates so low that saving money amounted to stupidity and borrowing to spend or buyback your own share was seen as the right thing. This led to higher level of indebtedness at household and corporate level along with rise in asset prices. Poor don’t have assets,so they were left behind in this orgy of asset bubble as seen below which is leading to rise in populism ( seen those yellow vest protests)
