Positioning for the New Market Paradigm

euro zone

The current year has been beset by periods of market uncertainty. By the post-holiday period, this had showed no signs of retreating. In fact, the prospect of Syria hostilities added to a docket already replete with event-risk potential.

Talk of tapering by the Federal Reserve has had the market transfixed since the middle of the year and has led to fairly dramatic shifts in Treasury yields and in funds flow. Emerging market currencies, bonds and equities have been hammered.

But where does the euro zone fit into this complex of globally inter-connected factors, events and eventualities? What does the remainder of 2013 hold in store for EZ government bond markets and how should we be viewing market opportunities for 2014?

Join us for the Positioning for the New Market Paradigm event. Topics will include:

  • How does Fed tapering impact the ECB’s room for manoeuvre?
  • Evaluating the ECB’s QE and rates options
  • Assessing Germany and likely policy outcomes in the post-election period
  • Locating the sweet spot in core and soft-core EZ government bonds
  • Is now the right time to load up on Spanish and other peripheral EZ debt?
  • Where do we stand on the negative feedback loop between European banks and sovereigns?

Join us on November 13th in Madrid and learn how Thomson Reuters Eikon can help you navigate such complexity. In a panel moderated by Keith Mullin, Editor-at-Large, IFR, our expert speakers will analyze and evaluate the relevant global themes and provide insight and guidance for investors, sales, trading, and capital markets professionals seeking to advise on or take positions in the European rates market.
