Factors That Can Affect Stock Prices

Factors That Can Affect Stock Prices

LONDON and NEW YORK, Jan. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – ITG (NYSE: ITG ), a leading independent broker and financial technology provider, today released a survey of buyside traders about how Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II) is likely to impact European trading liquidity in 2018. The December 2017 survey polled more than 50 buyside institutional investors who trade European equities. This is to take account of the exceptional technical implementation challenges faced by regulators and market participants. The European Commission has today proposed granting national competent authorities and market participants one additional year to comply with the rules set out in the revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive , known as MiFID II. The new deadline is 3 January 2018.

Computer security experts have discovered two major security flaws in the microprocessors inside nearly all of the world’s computers. The two problems, called Meltdown and Spectre, could allow hackers to steal the entire memory contents of computers, including mobile devices, personal computers and servers running in so-called cloud computer networks.

Equities underperform during tight monetary policy periods, as higher interest rates restrict risk appetite and make it relatively expensive to buy securities on margin. However, there is typically a substantial lag between the time when a central bank commences tightening monetary policy and when equities peak. As an example, while the Federal Reserve began raising short-term interest rates in June 2003, U.S. equities only peaked in October 2007, almost 3½ years later. This lag effect is attributed to investor confidence that the economy was growing strongly enough for corporate earnings to absorb the impact of higher interest rates in the early stages of tightening.



Copyright law would likely be less affected by Brexit, but given the fact that EU case law has shaped much of our recent understanding of such rights, Brexit could lead to uncertainty as to the scope of protection. Post-Brexit, the English courts would no longer need to interpret national laws in light of EU legislation and jurisprudence so the decisions of English courts could result in widespread divergence from those of the EU – indeed the English courts have on several occasions questioned the wisdom of a number of decisions taken by the European Courts.

When a broker such as The Share Centre undertakes a trade for a customer, we report that trade to the market. This requires a unique identifier for each customer that trades, and that would vary between multiple brokers. MiFID II requires a common identifier – in the case of the UK this will be the National Insurance number and nationality – so that trades across multiple brokers undertaken by the same customer can be easily identified as relating to the same customer. This will improve monitoring of possible market abuse and other aspects of regulatory oversight. If you haven’t already provided and responded to your broker’s request for this information, you will need to do so, otherwise you will be stopped from trading. Be warned!

City Bank is hiring employees in spite of Brexit:

European Commission representatives refused the City of London’s proposal to strike a post-Brexit free-trade deal on financial services, a crucial strike to Britain’s desires of sustaining extensive access to EU markets for one of the world’s top two financial centers.


Britain is presently hub to the world’s greatest number of banks commercial insurance firms. Approximately 6 trillion euros ($7.35 trillion), or 37 percent, of Europe’s financial assets are administered in (London|the UK capital}, nearly twice the amount of its nearest rival, Paris.

Bond vigilantes find allies in the stock market

Bond vigilantes find counterparts in the stock market


A bond vigilante is a bond market investor who protests monetary or fiscal policies he considers inflationary by selling bonds, thus increasing yields. … As a result, bond prices fall and yields rise, which increases the net cost of borrowing.


Bond vigilantes could be discovering allies in the stock market.

With inflation worries once again in trend and the U.S. budget deficit experienced soaring, vigilantes have {targeted|stormed|floaded fixed income trading floors and seem to be merge in equity markets too, where they could penalize already worn out stocks for policymakers’ and lawmakers’ conducts.


"The stock market is feeling the bond market’s pain. Absolutely, no doubt – we have stock vigilantes too," says Ed Yardeni,

The nickname "bond vigilante" was coined by Yardeni in 1983 to describe investors’ insistence on high yields to compensate for the possibilities of inflation and budget deficits for the duration of the Reagan administration. A stock version of a vigilante would seek to sway lawmakers and policymakers by slamming equity prices.


Bond yields began to escalate on Feb. 2 after U.S. government data proved the biggest wage gains since 2009, convincing investors of the growing threat of inflation, long tame since the 2007-2009 recession.


U.S. stock investors have now became oversensitive to rising yields after the past week’s upturn, which elevates borrowing costs and could lessen economic earnings and production, Yardeni assumed. That also comes against the backdrop of racking up government debt.
