Issuer: (S&P rating A- or better) Sum of Performances

Post  Admin on Thu Mar 17, 2016 6:16 pm

Central banks drive markets. See our chart of the day for an obvious link between Fed bond buying activity and US stock market.

Last week ECB president Mario Draghi caused some confusion when announcing latest monetary stimulus. This is even more remarkable since he actually delivered the expected rate cut and extension of the ECB bond buying program.

First markets celebrated Draghi's "Big Bazooka" since he played virtually all instruments available to him and some of them louder than anticipated. Equity markets jumped by 2 percent. However right after he said, that interest rates would probable stay at the current low levels for the next few years the party was over. This means no further interest rate cuts. Markets dropped by about 4 percent. The day after investor overcame their hangover and paired losses.  

Yesterday the US Fed did not increase - as widely expected. Now the official wording has been reduced to '2 steps during 2016'. Currently the market sees a higher probability of an increase by just 0.25% which means 1 step.  

The US Fed is still tightening liquidity however at a lower pace. Other central banks around the world are expanding. If these contrary developments continue we will get more volatility at currency markets.

This note by a prestigious European issuer has a maturity of 3 years and pays a conditional coupon of 5% per semester (10% p.a.) if the sum of the performance of Nestle, Novartis and Roche is better than -60%. Otherwise the coupon is saved (Memory). If the sum of the performance of all three stocks is positive the product will be redeemed early at 100%. At maturity it will be redeemed at 100% of the sum of the performance of all 3 stocks is better than -60%. Otherwise redemption will be reduced by this sum.
