What Would a New Financial Crisis Look Like, How Would it Start?
- Compared to 2007, there is far greater awareness of fundamental and economic imbalances in the system today
- A greater leverage and wider distribution of the risk, can shape a different look-and-feel to a rebalancing
- While global recession and a China hard landing make troubling headlines, a more likely catalyst would be asset bubbles
Having trouble trading in the FX markets? This may be why.
Nowadays, even the optimists are pessimists on the health of the markets and financial system. There are certainly reasons to be concerned about stability moving forward against a backdrop of slowing global growth, common concerns of 'outside risks', tangible limitations to monetary policy as a salve, regular warnings over liquidity conditions and steady murmurs of asset bubbles. Given the circumstances, there are certainly the ingredients for a global rebalancing (some would call it a 'crisis'). However, fallout and catalyst are unlikely to mirror the 2007-2008 Great Financial Crisis's unfolding. Where should we watch for signs of danger and how might a destabilizing financial event look going forward? That is the focus of today's Strategy Video.
