Global Banking System Black Hole Being Exposed - PART II

Stock-Markets / Financial Crisis 2019 Jul 25, 2019 - 01:55 PM GMT

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Stock-Markets

Nearly a decade ago, the globe experienced the biggest banking system failures we had seen in nearly a century.  The exposure to risk that was inherent throughout the global banking system was so completely ignored that when the crisis unfolded, hardly anyone completely understood the depth of the risks at play.  Could it happen again?  Now?

Have foreign banking institutions extended credit and debt risks beyond safe levels again?  Are Deutsche Bank risk factors going to complicate an already fractured  Asia, China, and Europe?  What are the signs we should be looking for in terms of extended weakness or a breaking point?


In the first part of this research article, we highlighted the risk factors detailed by two separate public articles we found interesting.  Deutsche Bank derivatives risk is listed at $49 trillion and extends across the globe into the global banking sector.  We believe the economic slowdown being experienced throughout must of the globe could quickly expose a great chance for some type of contagion event to unfold.

Our research suggests the US banking sector and economy may be somewhat immune from this event this time having already learned its lesson from 2008-09.  Still, we believe this potential event should be on every trader’s mind going forward – especially in relation to our August 19 stock market prediction.

This second part of the article will attempt to investigate how the US Fed and US interest rates may complicate the speed of this potential contagion event and how it may have compounded the credit crisis of 2008-09.  Additionally, we’ll consider how multiple QE processes over the past 8+ years may have created the perfect setup for a new foreign banking/credit contagion event in the near future.

First, we’ll explore exactly when QE actions took place and ended.  Secondly, we’ll compare these with the derivatives and risk exposure activities to attempt to determine a correlative comparison.

This chart of the S&P 500 highlights exactly when QE activities started and ended.  It also highlights US fed debt investment activities (taper).

Have the global markets been fading the US Fed and decreasing leverage when the QE functions are at risk of ending or when the US Fed pushes rates higher?  What are the risk factors for the global markets if the foundation of the global economy is based on “fading the Fed” and this easy US Dollar carry-trade/economic boom cycle expectation?

If our analysis is correct, then we can state that foreign nations and governments are hooked on the easy US Dollar/US Fed QE functions even more so than the US is dependent on a strong US economy and a strong US Dollar.  It would appear that foreign banks, governments, and financial institutions became addicted to the idea that easy US Dollars would allow them to run a massive debt expansion scheme where they could borrow US Dollars for near 0% interest and deploy this capital as credit into their economies.  This credit quickly entered their shadow banking and gray banking processes where it ran through various forms with limited restrictions and oversight.  Could the easy-money policies of the past 8 years actually have created one of the biggest global credit risks in our future?

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS:

In short, it certainly seems as though the global banking institutions could get caught with their pants down if certain economic processes continue.  First, if commodities continue to collapse (oil, copper, steel and other infrastructure/transport essentials), then commodity-backed loans will continue to default – sending shock-waves through the shadow and traditional banking systems. 

If the US Fed continues to keep rates near current levels and when borrowers need to extend terms at current rates, this creates a scenario where borrowers may need to pay rates far greater than they can offset as profits – creating a negative return and extended defaults.

If foreign banks have extended loans into the shadow/gray banking system under the expectation that the US Federal Reserve would never attempt to move rates above 1% to 1.5% while foreign trade and economic activities continue to decline, the potential for decreased income/revenues pushing debt default levels higher becomes a real risk going forward.

A contagion event could become a much more real possibility of two or more of these events continue to extend out into 2020 or longer. 

We believe we are already nearing a minor contagion event within the EU and Asia/China.  We believe the debt/banking sectors are about to experience a wave of continued defaults and shake-outs as the US Fed navigates future expectations.  Deutsche Bank is the one to watch in Europe because the extended debt risks associated with DB could become the black hole that sucks the rest of the foreign financial sector into an abyss.

Pay attention to the news and risk factors at play over the next few weeks and months.  Plan and prepare for increased volatility as this event continues to unfold.  Follow our research to learn how to protect your assets and find ways to profit from these events.
