  • Kilde Milliardær spørgsmål isnende advarsel om rente derivater

    Vil hurtigt stigende renter rippe gennem det amerikanske finansielle system ligesom en gigantiske plæneklipper blade? Ja, den amerikanske økonomi overlevede meget højere rentesatser i fortiden, men dengang var der ikke hundredvis af billioner af dollars værd af rente derivater hænger over vores økonomiske system som et damoklessværd.

    Dette er noget, jeg har talt om i temmelig lang tid, og nu en mexicansk milliardær er kommet frem med en lignende advarsel. Hugo Salinas pris var grundlæggeren af Elektra detailkæde ned i Mexico, og han er meget bekymret, at stigende renter kunne brød derivater boble og forårsage "massiv konkurser over hele verden". Selvfølgelig er der en hel masse mennesker derude der ville være glad for at se de "too big to fail" banker gå konkurs, men sandheden er, at hvis de går ned hele økonomien vil gå med dem.

    Vores situation er svarende til en patient med et meget fremskredent stadium af kræft. Du kan forsøge at dræbe kræft med narkotika, men du vil næsten helt sikkert dræbe patienten på samme tid.

    Nå, det er i al væsentligt hvad vores forhold til de store banker er ligesom. Hele vores økonomiske system er baseret på kredit, og ligesom vi så tilbage i 2008, hvis de store banker begynder at undlade kredit fryser og pludselig ingen kan få nogen penge for noget.

    Når den næste store kreditkrisen, alle vigtige tal i vores økonomi hurtigt ...

    • China data helps lift traditional cyclicals
    • Gains come in improved turnover as bearish bets trimmed
    • Tencent adds to 2013 rise ahead of Wednesday earnings

    HONG KONG, Aug 12 (Reuters) - Hong Kong and China shares started the week strongly as solid economic data released late Friday on the world's second-largest economy buoyed cyclical sectors from coal to cement and heavy machinery.

    Monday's gains came in the highest Hong Kong midday turnover in about a month, while Shanghai volumes also improved, suggesting investors could be returning, mostly to cut some bearish bets.

    At midday, the Hang Seng Index was up 1.7 percent at 22,170.7 points, its highest in a week. The China Enterprises Index of the top Chinese listings in Hong Kong climbed 2.4 percent.

    The CSI300 of the leading Shanghai and Shenzhen A-share listings rose 1.7 percent, while the Shanghai Composite Index gained 1.3 percent. Both were at their highest intra-day levels in about a month.

    "We are seeing some follow-through momentum from last week's China data that is lifting some more pressure on the traditional cyclical sectors like coal and cement," said Alex Wong, Ample Finance's director of asset management.

    "There has to be an element of short covering given how heavily shorted some of these names were before last week, but it's all about positioning," Wong added.

    Green investment in its current form here in the UK seems to involve a lot of risk without the compensatory rewards. Lack of funding, and some woefully poor execution, has left the junior market littered with failures.

    So much so that investors have become rather jaded and cynical about the sector. Going against type is Greencoat UK Wind, which is preparing to list next month.

    Britain’s first ever green infrastructure fund, it has been set up as a yield play with the funding and development risk removed.

    In that context, it is a unique vehicle rather than the latest iteration of unsatisfactory green investment attempts of the past.

    Its IPO is expected to raise at least £205million, which will bankroll the acquisition of six established wind farms (five onshore, one offshore) from Scottish and Southern Energy and the German giant RWE.

    The average price for the onshore assets is £1.8million per mega watt – the market rate for deals in this sector.
