EBA
Updates data used for the identification of global systemically important institutions (G-SIIs)
19 August 2021
The European Banking Authority (EBA) published 12 indicators and updated the underlying data from the 31 largest institutions in the EU. This end-2020 data serves as input for the internationally agreed standards on which a smaller subset of banks will be identified as global systemically important institutions (G-SIIs), following the final decision from the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) and the Financial Stability Board (FSB). The EBA, acting as a central data hub in the disclosure process, updates this data on a yearly basis and provides a user-friendly platform to aggregate it across the EU. For more information please press

Oil Heads for Weekly Slump as Taper Signal Punishes Commodities
20 August 2021
"Oil headed for a substantial weekly loss, hurt by the Federal Reserve’s move toward tapering asset purchases, a rally in the U.S. dollar, and concerns about global energy demand. West Texas Intermediate has tumbled more than 6% this week, and closed at the lowest since May on Thursday amid a broad retreat across commodities. The U.S. oil benchmark was 0.6% higher near $64 a barrel on Friday. Oil has been buffeted this month by the prospect of the Fed cutting back on its extraordinary monetary stimulus despite the spread of the delta coronavirus variant. The pandemic remains a threat to energy demand, especially across Asia, with key importer China restricting mobility to combat an outbreak." For more information please press

U.S. second-quarter growth likely to be revised higher after slew of strong data
19 August 2021
"U.S. economic growth for the second quarter is likely to be revised higher following a recent raft of stronger than initially thought data covering that period, which reflected the economy’s reopening amid improved public health. The Commerce Department’s quarterly services survey, or QSS report, on Thursday added to a flow of data such as retail sales and inventories in suggesting that gross domestic product grew much faster than the 6.5% annualized rate reported by the government in its advance estimate last month."

Inflation-protected Treasuries charge higher to lead US bond market
18 August 2021
"
Investors worried about rising prices for everything from consumer goods to raw materials have poured into inflation-protected American government debt, propelling its returns above other major types of US bonds this year. While anxieties over a burst of inflation have buffeted the $22tn Treasury market — resulting in big losses during the first quarter before a partial rebound — Treasury inflation-protected securities, known as Tips, have been a winning bet. Tips, which are government bonds that compensate investors for rising prices, have generated returns including interest payments of 3.9 per cent in 2021, according to a Barclays index that tracks the Tips market. " For more information please press here.

Bitcoin’s Technical Challenges Pile Up After 63% Jump
20 August 2021
"Bitcoin’s rally of about 63% from a July trough now faces a rare confluence of technical obstacles. An April low of about $47,000 is now acting as something of a barrier, as is a Fibonacci and Ichimoku cluster between $47,000 and $48,000, while the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the April to June downtrend -- at $51,000 -- could be an obstacle too. Edward Moya, senior market analyst for North America at Oanda Corp., expects Bitcoin to consolidate between $45,000 and $48,000." For more information please press
