    Five Things You Need to Know to Start Your Day

    U.S. stocks eked out modest gains Wednesday, but the real news may be the lack of price swings across developed-market assets recently. Front-month futures tied to the CBOE Volatility Index closed Tuesday at the lowest since before the record explosion in U.S. equity price swings back in February. Treasury-market implied volatility is moving back toward record lows, a testament to stable expectations about the near-term outlook for the Federal Reserve. Meanwhile, a Deutsche Bank index of estimated developed-world currency swings sits nearly one standard deviation below its 12-month average. “Markets appear rather complacent in the face of the trade tensions, so caution is warranted on directional trades at this point,” Kit Juckes, a Societe Generale strategist, wrote in a note.

    Inverted Yield Curve Is Hiding in Plain Sight

    Pray for the global economy. For much of the past year or so, investors and economists have anxiously watched the relentless shrinkage of the gap between short- and long-term U.S. bond yields to the narrowest levels since 2007. Within the past two months, the yield on an ICE Bank of America index of government bonds due in seven to 10 years has fallen below the yield on an index of bonds due in one to three years for the first time since the first half of 2007.

    What Could Increase Market Volatility This Week?

    US equity markets (VOO) remained largely unchanged in an eventful week that ended on June 15. Trade war uncertainty, geopolitics, and monetary policy decisions failed to dent investor confidence. The three central bank meetings solidified the divergent monetary policy narrative as the Fed remained hawkish. The European and Japanese central banks are likely to continue with the accommodative policy for the time being. The announcement of tariffs on Chinese imports reignited investor worries, but the impact was minimal.

    The ECB, not the Fed, is the match that will spark bond market volatility: analyst

    Rising real interest rates haven’t yet made for a sustained pickup in Treasury volatility, leaving some investors to ask what it would take to spark some turbulence. Danielle DiMartino Booth of Quill Intelligence said the European Central Bank, and not the Federal Reserve, holds the key as it looks to set a timetable for winding down its ultra-accommodative policies. With the Federal Reserve’s shrinking balance sheet unable to offset easy global financial conditions on its own, investors should closely watch the ECB at Thursday’s meeting where the central bank is expected to discuss the end of quantitative easing, though the actual wind-down almost certainly remains several months away at the earliest.

The trigger was a return of implied volatility, as the CBOE Volatility Index (^VIX) briefly surged to 37 in February after averaging 11 in the previous 12 months. While the S&P 500 (^GSPC) rose or fell by more than 1 percentage point only eight times in 2017, already this year it has swung by that magnitude on 35 days.

    Speculators are once again betting the stock market’s return to low volatility will persist despite the array of uncertainties it faces.

David Rosenberg, Gluskin Sheff’s lynx-eyed chief economist and strategist, points out speculative shorts in the VIX nearly doubled last week, to 44,380 futures and options contracts, from 25,556 the previous week, according to the most recent data from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

    Wall Street’s ‘fear index’ falls to more than 4-month low as tech stocks romp

    One of Wall Street’s most popular indicators of market fear tumbled to its lowest level since late January as the Nasdaq Composite Index recorded a second record close in as many sessions, suggesting that the appetite for risk, perhaps alongside investor complacency, is re-emerging in the stock market. The Cboe Volatility Index VIX(^VIX), which measures expectations for volatility in the S&P 500 (^GSPC) over the coming 30 days, fell 2.7% to 12.40 on Tuesday, marking its lowest finish since it hit 11.08 on Jan. 26, contributing to the so-called fear gauge’s nearly 20% retreat thus far in June, according to FactSet data. The VIX has shed 8% in the first full week of the early month and has given up 34% over the past three months, though it is still up 12.3% year to date.
