Update: Bank of England does just enough

The Bank of England left interest rates on hold at the record low 0.1% and increased the size of its asset purchase programme by £100bn to £745bn. Although largely in line with expectations, the expansion of the QE programme was a little less than some of us had anticipated, and indeed was really the bare minimum to satisfy the market. The BoE said it stands ready to increase QE if required – it may need to this autumn. The Old Lady could have been a little bit braver here and expanded the envelope more.

Bank of England wheels for fresh charge

Central banks need to be marshalled like cavalry and stimulus like charges. If your stimulus doesn’t rout the enemy immediately, you can easily get bogged down in a melee in which you lose your advantage. The Federal Reserve keeps wheeling around and managing to rally troops for fresh charges – the corporate bond buying announcement this week was a fine example.

US Election Risk: Corporate Tax Rates

The recent decline in tax rate has been a major contributing factor to profit growth for US companies. For example, S&P Global found that, since the Tax Cut and Jobs Act was enacted, the median effective tax rates for information technology companies in the S&P500 dropped from 21.1% in the first quarter of 2017 to 15.5% in the same period of 2019.

Fed rides to the rescue

Yesterday, I noted that policymakers would be forced to chuck even more money at pandemic relief as second waves of cases and a painful and incomplete economic recovery bit. Right on cue, the Federal Reserve announced it would start buying individual corporate bonds, building on the existing purchases of ETFs. The Fed ‘will purchase corporate bonds to create a corporate bond portfolio that is based on a broad, diversified market index of U.S. corporate bonds’, the central bank said.

Week Ahead

Week Ahead: BoE, BoJ meetings; data to crush quick Covid recovery hopes

Last week the Federal Open Market Committee effectively killed hopes that the global economy could rebound quickly from the Covid-19 pandemic. Much of the data due this week is expected to deteriorate further. Any bright spots could be overshadowed by growing fears we may be facing a second wave of infections.
