The Impact Of Today's Low-Interest Rate Environment On Investors
In response to the global COVID-19 recession, central banks across the world unleashed synchronized monetary stimulus to backstop the economy.With the lack of inflation pressure, and higher tolerance for inflation overshoots, central banks globally are likely to keep interest rates low for a long time.Today’s low-interest rate environment creates some challenges for investors looking for adequate returns through bonds, but great opportunities for borrowers and equity investors.

'Blue Wave': The Other Side Of The Trade
Examine the possibility that a "blue wave" is not necessarily "growth-friendly" and how fixed-income investors should plan for such an outcome.A "blue wave" results in a potentially higher tax, an increased regulatory environment and a less "business-friendly" setting, which could ultimately result in slower economic growth.If the UST market does embrace "the other side of the trade," investors should take a more "strategic" approach to fixed-income asset allocation and be mindful of the current and prospective shape of the yield curve (relatively flat now, potentially steeper later).

Market Stumbles As Stimulus Hopes Fade
Over the last few weeks, we have discussed much of what happens to the stock market both pre- and post-presidential elections.With no stimulus currently on the horizon and a resurgence of economic weakness, there is more than a reasonable risk we may see more disappointment in economic data ahead.We currently have more equity exposure than we are comfortable with.However, technically, there is no reason to reduce exposure as trends remain positive sharply, the sentiment remains clearly bullish, and volatility remains suppressed.We are still hedging portfolios by holding slightly higher levels of cash and adjusting the duration of the bond portfolio to mitigate drawdown risk.

Weekly Commentary: Moral Hazard Pinnacle
European bond prices have an unmistakable correlation to European COVID infections.The strategy of ensuring the banking system remains well capitalized - while letting market-based finance run wild - may have plausible theoretical underpinnings.The "penalty rate" issue is key to mitigating moral hazard.

It's Time For Inflation Hedges: Consider Gold, Mining Stocks And Farmland
Increasing inflation has implications for businesses and workers, but this article will focus on investors.The classic inflation hedges are gold, other commodities, real estate and, some argued, stocks.There are possibilities in all these categories, though investors should not expect any of these to work perfectly.There is no asset that is obviously a slam dunk for an inflation hedge, but gold, mining stocks and farmland should be considered.

Weighing The Week Ahead: Will Strong Earnings Signal An Economic Rebound?
There are continuing political and pandemic stories that could dominate the news cycle at any time.Many of the normal economic indicators are not helpful in the wake of the COVID lockdown decline.Retail sales improved 1.9% in September, beating expectations of a 0.6% gain and August’s 0.6% increase.Initial jobless claims increased to 898K versus expectations of 830K and the prior week’s 845K.Technical measures are reasonably strong. Trends remain intact and support levels have generally not been violated.

Hyperinflation Is Here
The early stages of a hyperinflation are always seen by the monetary authorities as the only policy to pursue.Nominal GDP is not just the other side of the monetary equation. It is also total production, and the other side of total production is the sum of consumption and deferred consumption.Very few are conscious that hyperinflation is already with us.

Latest Memo From Howard Marks: Coming Into Focus
This down-cycle cannot be fully cured merely through the application of economic stimulus. Rather, the root cause has to be repaired, and that means the disease has to be brought under control.The economic recovery everyone's counting on is not an independent event, unaffected by developments. Rather, it is highly dependent on progress against the disease but also on the continuation of fiscal expenditures in the interim.Today, it seems to me that most assets are offering expected returns that are fair relative to their expected risk, relative to everything else. But the prospective returns on everything are about the lowest they've ever been.In my view, the low interest rates represent the dominant characteristic of the current financial environment, creating the dominant consideration for investors: the lowest prospective returns in history.

The recent attempt by crude oil to get back above the 200-dma coincided with the Fed's initiation of QE-4.Much of the bulls rallying cry has been based on the dollar weakening with the onset of QE.
