(Bloomberg)-Casewood's Ark Investment Management's main fund expanded its decline to 20% from its peak in February, highlighting the rapid recovery of former high-speed stocks favored by the company.246 The billion-dollar Ark Innovation ETF (ARKK) was hit hard by growth stocks such as Pinterest Inc. and Zillow Group Inc. and fell 6.3% on Wednesday alone. The Nasdaq 100 index fell nearly 3% because traders abandoned technology stocks and turned to so-called value stocks that underperformed during the pandemic, which has fallen 8.1% since its peak last month. Downplaying the attractiveness of stocks is making the hottest investments on Wall Street shine. In the past year, ARKK has increased tenfold, including the inflow of $2.37 billion last month. Since reaching its peak on February 12, the price of ARKK has fallen by one-fifth, which is usually the definition of a bear market. "People are worried that crowded trades will lose momentum like they did last September," when some of the biggest technology companies were hit. Matt Maley, chief market strategist for Miller Tabak + Co. Yields benchmark 10-year US Treasury bonds, said this is a sell-off. The bond jumped by more than 50 basis points in 2021, and is expected to achieve the largest quarterly increase since 2016. It is difficult to justify the high valuation of the highly speculative, expensive stock market. In the past year, the three major holding companies of ARKK, Tesla (Tesla Inc.), Square Inc. and Roku Inc., have tripled. Tesla is up nearly 350%, while Square is up about 200%, and Roku is up more than 240%. In fact, on Wednesday, all three stocks held by ARKK fell, with three losses exceeding 10%, including 3D printer manufacturer Stratasys Ltd. and Veracyte Inc., a fund that develops molecular tests for oncology, which tend to grow in the long term. This means that short-term profitability is not a key consideration when choosing stocks. In fact, the past two-thirds of the companies are currently not profitable. Even after experiencing recent losses, ARKK still rose slightly this year. The funds flowing into the fund faltered in the past week, but have not yet been withdrawn on a large scale. In the past two days, the sum of ARKK exceeded 600 million U.S. dollars, and last week it lost 690 million U.S. dollars in the five worst days on record. ", Tallbacken Capital Advisors CEO Michael Purves said. "If the mood turns, you will see a lot of money outflow. "(Full updated price) For more articles on this, please visit us at Bloomberg.com.

The oil industry is no stranger to the boom and bust cycle, but the pandemic is by far the craziest one. On March 4, when OPEC meets to consider production cuts, another round of changes will occur. With the idleness of global cars and airplanes, global oil demand bottomed out in April, 16.4% lower than the previous year, which caused oil prices to fall to negative values for the first time. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is the starting point for all this. It is a 13-member cartel that sets quotas for most of the world's largest oil producers (except the United States).

(Bloomberg)-U.S. Treasury bonds plummeted again on Wednesday, pushing long-term maturity Treasury bond yields to the highest level this week and pushing up inflation expectations as traders continue to recover from the pandemic and recover prices from a faster economic rebound. The benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury bond yield soared as high as 10.3 basis points to 1.495%, a move reminiscent of the astonishing government debt sell-off last Thursday. At the same time, driven by rising oil prices, the market expects that the annual inflation rate in the next five-year period will exceed 2.5% for the first time since 2008. At least part of the trigger for fixed income losses comes from the United Kingdom, which said it will sell more bonds than expected as the economy recovers from a severe recession. The background is Joe Biden's announcement that a sufficient dose of the virus vaccine should be vaccinated by the end of May, and all American adults can use the software. There were reports on Wednesday that the president would slow down certain stimulus measures in order to win support for his antivirus bill. The increase in yields has begun to attract the attention of Fed officials, and everyone is turning their attention to Chairman Jerome Powell (Jerome Powell) attending the meeting on Thursday. Partner of MCAP LLC in New York. "Interest rates are being raised at an ultra-fast rate and trying to maintain market stability and may try to slow the momentum of deflation and economic rebound trade to a fight between the Federal Reserve, which is more manageable." Early signs of inflation are obvious. Data from the Institute for Supply Management shows that the measurement of prices paid jumped to the highest level since 2008. The massive trading of 10-year U.S. Treasury bond options on Wednesday and the subsequent sell-off in futures also pushed up yields, as did heavy-debt corporate bonds. Mark Heppenstall, chief investment officer of Penn Mutual Asset Management in Horsham, Pennsylvania, said that with the strong economic growth in the United States, the interest rate market has not yet been fully priced, which means that the 10-year Treasury bond yield is about 1.90%. This is the level that last appeared in January 2020, two months before the pandemic fears began to prompt the rise of USBeyond’s nominal and break-even interest rates and forced to suspend production. “We have already seen the 10-year real yield adjusted for inflation. Part of the dynamic increase in the market is that the market said: “The time of the Fed’s first interest rate hike (i.e. lift-off) and subsequent interest rate hikes have not yet been taken into account, which makes US Treasuries more vulnerable to further shocks. "According to Heppenstall, there will be a sell-off in the next few weeks (a reference to Fed rate hikes has been added in the ninth paragraph).

(Bloomberg)-Bond traders have been saying for years that there is liquidity in the world's largest bond market, unless you really need liquidity. The astonishing swing in U.S. Treasury yields last week may have provided new support for this slogan and triggered another round of in-depth research on the basis of global finance worth 21 trillion US dollars. Although stocks are prone to sudden fluctuations, in the government debt market that sets benchmark risk-free interest rates for most parts of the world, this happens rarely, or even far away. A mystery, because no two events are the same. Someone pointed out that after the 2008 financial crisis, bank supervision has been strengthened. In October 2014, the scrutiny of the liquidity shortage was intensified. At that time, there was a 12-minute crash and yield rebound, but there was no obvious incentive. In the chaos caused by the pandemic a year ago, panic selling exacerbated the explosion of leveraged bets by hedge funds, once again making the issue stand out. Then last week, when the difference between the buying price and selling price of the 30-year bond touched in time, Ben Emons, managing director of global macro strategy at Medley Global Advisors, said that the latest event "strongly reminds us What happens when liquidity suddenly disappears in the deepest and largest bond market?” Is this huge market more susceptible to sudden turbulence due to measures taken to make it more difficult for banks to hold treasury bonds? Some analysts said that last week's turmoil was amplified by the question of whether the Federal Reserve will extend bank capital easing requirements that will end on March 31. Banks added U.S. Treasury bonds to their balance sheets. The events of 2014 triggered a deep dive into the market structure, and regulators have promoted some changes-such as increased transparency-and more and more people speculate that more measures may be taken To strengthen the market structure Fed Governor Lyle Brainard said: “Although the scale and speed of flows related to the COVID shock may be far beyond the tail of the probability distribution, this crisis highlights the crucial loopholes in the U.S. Treasury market. , Needs careful analysis." In a message to the International Bankers Association on Monday, the bond market’s plunge last week has many potential culprits-completely reversed since last week-from improved economic data to more technological drivers. The Fed’s ultra-loose policy and the prospect of new US fiscal stimulus measures have made investors bet on faster growth and inflation. Coupled with a wave of convex hedgers, and the relaxation of investors following the megatrend (such as commodity trading consultants), based on Bloomberg's US government securities liquidity index, which measures the deviation of the return rate from the fair value model, there is liquidity. According to Zoltan Pozsar, a strategist at U.S. Credit Suisse, the action started in Asia, and bond investors responded to the hawkish signs of the central banks of Australia and New Zealand. With the disappearance of arbitrage trading and other leveraged positions in the bond market, this sentiment subsequently spread to the United States. The strategists of JPMorgan & Chase Co. “disastrously auctioned seven-year Treasury bonds, which exacerbated the outbreak of this disaster. Last week’s TV series” reminded people of other notable events in recent years, the main ones being It is the deterioration of the microstructure of the national debt market. "Henry St John wrote in a report with colleagues that according to data from March 2020, a key indicator of U.S. Treasury liquidity-market depth or trading without significant price fluctuations Capability-fell to the lowest level since the 2008 crisis. JPMorgan Chase. This severe liquidity shortage did not disappear again last week. Last week, the bond market plunged only temporarily caused losses to stock prices, and the stock market began to soar this week. Earlier, U.S. Treasury bond yields fell sharply during the month-end purchases. The Fed cut interest rates to near zero in March 2020, launched a series of emergency loan mechanisms, and expanded bond purchases to ensure low borrowing costs and stability The market operation of this function. This functional collapse has triggered calls for change from regulators and market participants. Global insight: Is there a recovery? Yes. Lost your temper? No. The earnings driver model is currently stabilized in US Treasury bonds. Pozsar pointed out , The increase in yields provides an opportunity for some value investors to gain more income, thereby effectively offsetting the impact of leveraged investors who rushed to exit last week. Position." Pozsar said in Bloomberg’s upcoming Odd Lots podcast . "It's uncomfortable-especially if you are trading in the wrong direction-but I don't think we should follow the path of redesigning the Treasury bill market."
