Analysis – ECB’s money printing may stymie cash generators

LONDON (Reuters) – The European Central Bank may well be printing money via its landmark government bond buying programme, but it could also be destroying some of the financial system’s own printing presses in the process.

Little over a week after the ECB launched its 1 trillion euro (718 billion pounds) ‘quantitative easing’ campaign, financial markets are fretting that there is a shortage of bonds for the central bank to buy.

Speeding asset prices meet oncoming savings juggernaut

Analysis – Stock markets keep calm and carry on

LONDON (Reuters) – War, financial crises and deflation again haunt the markets in the new year, but stocks somehow keep calm and carry on.

There’s something a little eerie about watching equity markets on Wall Street or in Frankfurt and London wend their way to new records or multi-year highs against a backdrop of smouldering conflict in Ukraine, a real risk of Greece leaving the euro and angst about consumer price deflation worldwide.
