Analysis – Watch what markets don’t do as world politics turns nasty

LONDON (Reuters) – Like so much in the investment world of late, it’s what financial markets are not doing right now that is most intriguing.

Over the course of the past month, conflicts, superpower standoffs and economic sanctions have flared in Iraq and Syria, Israel and Gaza, Ukraine and Russia. All are at least potential threats to world energy supplies, if not globalised business links and supply chains.

Scoping the new subprime as watchdogs cry ‘bubble’

LONDON (Reuters) – As global watchdogs warn that euphoric financial markets are divorced from economic reality and acting out some reprise of the credit bubble and bust of the past decade, fears of another subprime timebomb are inevitable.

But even if you believe another crisis is brewing, it’s most likely not where it was last time. At least not in U.S. securitised mortgages – the heart of systemic blowout that nearly brought down the global banking system in 2008.
