(Bloomberg) – $ 1 from President Joe Biden A $ 9 trillion relief plan, plus the prospect of further stimulus later this year, sets the stage for a move away from historically treasury yields low, which will likely lead to a resumption of volatility in the currency markets US yields rose even before the plan arrived, giving some idea of ​​what might be in store BlackRock Inc sees up to $ 2.8 trillion additional budget spending this year and the risk of a further hike in long-term rates BNY Mellon’s John Velis says a 10-year Treasury yield of 2% is possible by April amid “crisis of anger without the reduction ”in Federal Reserve bond purchases And currency volatility is so low it’s almost certain to increase, says Harley Bassman, creator of a widely watched gauge of Tré market movements For weeks, the million-dollar question for many investors was whether the dollar’s $ 9 trillion relief plan would mostly go through the financial markets – as the first package did – or actually find its way. further path in the US economy, where it could trigger shifts in spending and investment beyond the initial size of the stimulus The wave of reflation bets sweeping through global markets indicates that this latest narrative is taking on greater significance. place, which suggests that these transactions may have leeway“There’s a lot of stimulus going on that could total $ 2-3 trillion at the end of the day,” said Velis, an FX and macro strategist at BNY Mellon, by phone. This includes another package later this year focused on on infrastructure and growth, he saidYields began to gradually rise in January after Democrats appeared poised to take control of the Senate, pushing the 10-year above the previously elusive 1% level The rate, currently around 137%, is now at its highest level in nearly a year, but the increase in yields has not been accompanied by corresponding reactions in the forex market, which has remained largely stable. for example, is the CBOE EuroCurrency Volatility Index, which tracks the projected short-term volatility of the euro-dollar exchange rate It was mainly on a downward trend in 2021, not far from the lowest levels of the past 12 yearsRising rates are the first place a stronger growth and inflation outlook is reflected, and this should be followed by currency volatility.A place to watch is the yen, which has one of the implied currency thefts lowest among major currencies, and has “more leeway to rise,” says Velis Meanwhile, he sees the dollar’s next direction as “somewhat ambiguous” Turbocharging the Restart At BlackRock Inc, the world’s largest fund manager, the new budget spending is seen as “supercharging the reboot” of the U.S economy, with additional spending only ensuring more support, according to a note from Jean Boivin, head of the company’s research arm, and others They see a major risk of a further increase in long-term returns “As markets grapple with an economic recovery that could exceed expectations”, which could trigger episodes of volatility They downgraded their view on government bonds, while broadening their pro stance -risk, in particular by promoting actionsThe implied volatility of a wide range of financial instruments is currently “poorly valued and too low,” said Bassman, inventor of what is now known as the ICE BofA MOVE index, the most-watched benchmark. of Wall Street for interest rate volatility He says that the combination of fiscal and monetary policy undertaken by the Biden administration and the Fed “can create volatility in both directions.” While greater volatility in interest rates should translate into volatility in currencies, he said, “the forecast is now much more difficult” “The bond and currency markets have incorporated an initial $ 1.9 trillion stimulus that turns into transient inflation and a surge in demand that shrinking, “said Thomas Graff, a portfolio manager who helps oversee $ 100 billion at Brown Advisory in Baltimore.” What has not been factored in is a sustainable and booming economy If the push budget is enough to put the US on a higher growth plan, which likely drives a higher dollar and makes currency markets more volatile ”For more articles like this, please visit us at bloombergSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted source of business news © 2021 Bloomberg LP

(Bloomberg) – Now that the lights are on in Texas again, the state must determine who is going to pay for the energy crisis that plunged millions of people into darkness last week It will likely be ordinary Texans price so far: $ 50 6 billion, the cost of electricity sold from Monday morning, when the blackouts began, to Friday morning, Bloomberg estimates NEF This compares to $ 4 billion for the previous week Some of these costs have already passed on to consumers, as electricity customers exposed to wholesale prices spiked electricity bills as high as $ 8,000 last week Other customers won’t know what they’re doing until they receive their gas and electric bills at the end of the month Ultimately, the financial pain will likely be shared by taxpayers and taxpayers said Michael Webber, professor at the University of Texas at Austin and scientific director of French electricity company Engie SAIf before US electricity market failures are any guide, Texans could be on the hook for decades Californians, for example, spent about 20 years paying for the Enron-era electricity crisis from 2000 to 2001 , via supplements on utility billsCPS Energy, which is owned and operated by the City of San Antonio, said on Twitter it was looking for ways to spread last week’s costs over the next 10 years. This did not please his clients, who spoke out against the company’s proposal at a board meeting on Monday. “Spreading the cost of this event over a decade is unacceptable,” said Aaron Arguello , an organizer of Move Texas “Customers are already in debt with student loans, mortgages and other payments” But businesses that have suffered huge losses as the cost of electricity skyrocketed last week will inevitably try to recoup them via their customers, taxpayers or obligations How quickly Texans pay depends on their supplier Gas utilities typically pass costs on to customers at the end of the monthly billing cycle, said Toby Shea, credit manager at Moody’s Investors Service. Municipal utilities, co-ops and regulated electricity providers have the ability to spread costs over a longer period “It is very easy for a government to spread this out for many years, even a few months,” a- CPS CEO Paula Gold-Williams said last week that the company could also issue bonds to help pay for the natural gas it bought at inflated prices.Some utilities are looking to raise hundreds of millions of dollars in cash to spread costs over 10 to 20 years, said Scott Sagen, associate director of US public finance at S&P Global Ratings Rayburn Country Electric Cooperative Inc, for example, fully used its $ 250 million syndicated line of credit and recently entered into a $ 300 million bilateral line of credit with National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corp for a year, according to a S&P report released on Monday A number of utilities are in talks with their banks to get cash to pay off their current debts so that they can then take out a bridging loan that they will convert into long-term bonds “They try to smooth these costs out as much as possible and provide cover to their customers “Sagen said. But smaller retailers who tend to be lower capitalized Sized and less well-hedged have limited options One such firm, Griddy, said last week that it would challenge prices set by the network operator during the crisis, with the apparent aim of recouping losses for itself and its clients Another company, Octopus Energy, said on Monday it would forgive any energy bill exceeding the average price of electricity for the week and eat up the resulting losses, which could run into millions of dollars.The state’s utilities regulator on Sunday barred electricity sellers from disconnecting customers for non-payment, saying the governor and lawmakers needed time to develop a plan to pay the bills first extremely high Texas lawmakers will likely resume discussion of consumer aid in their committee’s crisis hearings starting this week, a spokesperson for the Texas Utilities Commission said.In theory, lawmakers could pass an emergency bill that could cover the excessive costs charged by generators during the crisis, said Julie Cohn, an energy historian affiliated with the Center for Energy Studies at Rice University and at the Center for Public History at the University of Houston “Another element would be to say that you can have a competitive energy market that we have, but prohibit the supplier from tying the price directly to the wholesale price, like Griddy does.”It would be easier to do in a state that takes a tougher regulatory approach to its electricity market, according to Webber. But Texas has decided to take a more practical approach with its deregulated system,” he said.“The question is where will the money come from?” Shea said, “Is Texas going to bail out some customers?” It’s not their attitude to how they run their market or their economy ”For more articles like this please visit us at bloombergSubscribe now to stay ahead with the news source of most trusted business © 2021 Bloomberg LP
