Mark GrantMark Grant – The Next Big Lie!

Bloomberg, CNBC and mtn-i commentator Mark Grant has been living a double life as a Wall Street bond trader by day and Wizard by night for the last 40-years. But recently his worlds of fantasy and investment have collided! Official sovereign debt data from the Eurozone and the US has become the stuff of illusion rather than reality, and dare he say it; lies!

SWS logoIs blind acceptance by fund managers of this sovereign debt data leading investors down the path of massive potential losses?

And while the world’s economies head in one direction while the markets go in the opposite, is the future really so bright?

Grant does the sums on the difference between reality and fantasy and the consequences for global markets and investors.

    left
    their buy lists?

    and liquidity evolving?

Great Rotation

BoAMLBank of America researchers dubbed the potential flood of cash out of bonds into equities “the Great Rotation” and now structured products based on Long equities/short bonds strategies to replicate the strategy in a note rather than portfolio re-allocation are emerging. How can they replicate the trend and protect existing positions?
Bank of America leading manufacturer of this structure delivers its view.
