So the question is should we disable those overdrafts for all or some customers? Our answer was no we shouldn’t, that’s not appropriate,” he said.”Overwhelmingly the response from both our customers and neutral parties was that this is a storm in a teacup. I really celebrate that we now have 35,000 new shareholders who can now share in the potential upsides of the business.” Tags: Challenger banks Crowdfunding Wongalast_img read more

  • US stocks hit record highs as Fed chair hints at rate cut

    first_imgThe S&P 500, the Nasdaq and the Dow Jones industrial average stock market indices all hit record highs shortly after the bell rang at the New York Stock Exchange. In a prepared statement Powell said “trade tensions and concerns about global growth have been weighing on economic activity and the outlook” in the US. whatsapp From the start of 2016 to the end of 2018 the Fed raised its target federal funds rate from 0.5 per cent to between 2.25 and 2.5 per cent. “His comments around slowing growth against a backdrop of muted inflation and elevated uncertainties is consistent with “insurance rate cuts” this year which we think amounts to easing at one or two meetings,” he said. Aberdeen Standard Investments senior global economist James McCann said: “A rate cut in July is now all but certain. The strength of last week’s jobs number did lead some to think that the Fed may pause for thought. It’s clear from this that they won’t.” whatsapp Share An interest rate cut by the Fed would be the first in 10 years. Rates were slashed to record lows in the wake of the financial crisis, but the central bank raised them faster than its peers from 2016. Chairman of the US Federal Reserve Jay Powell has boosted the market’s expectations that the first interest rate cut in ten years will come this month with a gloomy testimony to a congressional committee. US President Donald Trump has vociferously criticised the Fed for raising rates too quickly, saying it has held back economic growth. Many economists share this view, although not Trump’s assessment that the central bank “doesn’t know what it’s doing”. Read more: Fed holds interest rates but hints at future cuts (Image credit: Getty) Both the dollar and short-term government bond yields fell following the release of the statement. The dollar had fallen 0.3 per cent against the euro just before 4pm UK time. Yields on two-year government bonds had dropped by five basis points to 1.85 per cent. Read more: Trump says Federal Reserve ‘doesn’t know what it’s doing’ Wednesday 10 July 2019 3:35 pm Insurance rate cuts Domestically, business investment has slowed notably while manufacturing output continued to decline, Powell said. He said there was “a risk that weak inflation will be even more persistent” than previously thought.center_img Harry Robertson Today, Powell said that in June many members of the rate-setting committee “saw that the case for a somewhat more accommodative monetary policy had strengthened”. “It’s more of a case of them being worried about what might happen to growth in the future.” Lower interest rates mean less demand for dollar-denominated financial assets, while bond prices rise as their interest payments look more attractive. Yields move inversely to price.  Federal Reserve Board Chairman Jerome Powell speaks at a news conference after a Federal Open Market Committee meeting in Washington, DC, on June 19, 2019. – Powell said Wednesday that many central bankers feel the case for a rate cut has “strengthened” but that they want to see more data before moving. (Photo by NICHOLAS KAMM / AFP) (Photo credit should read NICHOLAS KAMM/AFP/Getty Images) Powell’s dovish tone today was “slightly surprising given benign trade developments following last month’s G20 meeting and the recent rebound in nonfarm payroll employment,” said Michael Swell, co-head of global portfolio management at Goldman Sachs Asset Management’s fixed income team. “There’s an element here of the Fed wanting to take pre-emptive action,” he said. “From a growth perspective, there’s nothing in the data that suggests a rate cut is strictly necessary.”  The glum assessment of the US economy’s prospects cheered the stock markets, who read it as signalling an imminent interest rate cut to try and kickstart the economy. The Fed chair pointed to “a number of government policy issues” that “have yet to be resolved” and could drag on economic sentiment and growth, “including trade development, the federal debt ceiling, and Brexit”. Read more: Euro plunges as ECB president Mario Draghi signals more stimulus US stock markets hit record highs as Fed chair hints at rate cuts “Since then, based on incoming data and other developments, it appears that uncertainties around trade tensions and concerns about the strength of the global economy continue to weigh on the US economic outlook,” he said. Richard Flynn, managing director at Charles Schwab, said: “If the economy holds up and the rate cuts are simply “insurance,” stock markets could rally strongly. However, if the economy weakens, the market’s rate-cut optimism could turn negative.” The tech heavy Nasdaq rose 0.9 per cent while the Dow Jones and S&P 500 both rose 0.6 per cent less than an hour after opening.

This morning the Bank of England said the UK economy could be on track for its worst crash in 300 years, with GDP expected to shrink 14 per cent in 2020. “I will not be pressured into lifting restrictions prematurely before I am as certain as I can be that we will not be risking a resurgence of infection rates.” Share Show Comments ▼ Ministers are concerned that lifting the lockdown too soon could lead to a second peak of the virus that would overwhelm the NHS and force the government to shut down the economy for a second time. “He also reiterated the seven principles that he wants the government to consider when planning for the next phase, including safety at work and preventing a cliff-edge to the job protection scheme,” Starmer’s spokesman said.
