What Experts Say About Economy And Interest Rates
Michael Gracz, the National Sales Manager at Gustan Cho Associates and a world market expert and former investment banker said the following:
There are currently more than $16 trillion in negative-yielding debt instruments around the world as central banks try to ease monetary conditions to sustain the global economy. The 10-year sovereign bonds in Belgium, Germany, France, and Japan — among others — are trading with a negative rate. U.S. Treasury yields are still well within positive territory, but the Fed has already cut rates once this year and is expected to ease later this month. Market expectations for a rate cut in September are at 92.7%.
An aging population is driving demand for bonds, pushing their yields lower. We’re so used to the idea that we don’t have negative interest rates, but if you get a significant change in the attitude of the population, they look for coupon. As a result of that, there’s a tendency to disregard the fact that that has an effect on the net interest rate that they receive. Gold prices have been surging recently because people are looking for “hard” assets they know are going to have value down the road as the population ages. Gold futures are up more than 21% in 2019 and are trading around levels not seen since 2013.
The former Fed Chairman spoke on Wednesday, August 4th, 2019 after New York Fed President John Williams spoke on the topic of how low inflation is the problem of today.
