Credit Bubble Bulletin

Total (non-financial and financial) U.S. 946 billion to see annual development exceeding Q4’s speed of Household borrowings. 61 billion in ’10. 292 billion leaps in (non-mortgage) Consumer Credit. Authorities borrowings slowed through the fourth one-fourth sharply, with massive debt issuance pressed into Q1 ’18. 843 billion. 2018 federal borrowings will be tremendous. From a far more conventional perspective, development in U.S. “money” and Credit don’t appear all that amazing. Yet asset-based lending has gained significant momentum. 625bn), the strongest expansion since 2007. Q4 multifamily mortgage development was the strongest in years. 688 billion. It’s anything but clear why the GSEs should be growing at this time quickly.

2.229 TN, an almost three-year high. 16.431 TN (83% of GDP). 25.288 TN, or 128% of GDP. It’s an astounding amount of so-called “without risk” securities underpinning the entire financial system. Also “staggering” and “underpinning,” global financing pouring into U.S. It’s turn into a primary source of gasoline sustaining the Bubble.

Rest of World (ROW) increased holdings of U.S. 646 billion during Q4. For perspective, this is more than triple the Q4 development of bank loans. 11.456 TN of U.S. 4.699 TN of Foreign Direct Investment. 1.543 TN in ’16. Massive inflows of international finance have been essential to the U.S.

Bubble. Inflating securities and asset prices have inflated perceived household prosperity, a powerful fundamental to the U.S. 7.162 TN during 2017 to an archive 500% of GDP. I define a Bubble as a self-reinforcing but unsustainable inflation undoubtedly. Household Net Worth at 500% of GDP is unsustainable. I believe it is unsustainable because I don’t believe Total Securities at 449% of GDP is lasting. And current securities values are unsustainable because the existing financial structure is not sustainable. Too large a share of the new Credit creation is financing overvalued property (securities and real property, in particular), departing this key way to obtain liquidity susceptible to asset price reversals.

Too much of the new Credit is Treasury and government-related securities that are grossly misplaced in the marketplace. Moreover, tremendous foreign-sourced inflows are experiencing a significant (if unappreciated) impact on industry liquidity. I suspect a significant portion of these inflows are related to global QE and, somewhat less directly, to speculative leveraging (“carry investments,” etc.).

These resources of liquidity are progressively susceptible to central bank, or investment company “normalization,” higher funding costs and increasing global yields. Week to 1 1 Three-month Treasury costs rates finished the.63%. Two-year federal government produces added two up to 2.26% (up 38bps-y-t-d). Greek 10-12 months yields dropped 17 up to 4.16% (up 9bps-y-t-d). Ten-year Portuguese yields fell 12 up to at least one 1.86% (down 8bps). Italian 10-year produces gained four up to 2.01% (unchanged).

Japan’s Nikkei 225 equities index gained 1.4% (down 5.7% y-t-d). 525 million (from Lipper). Freddie Mac 30-year fixed home loan rates gained three up to 4.46%, the high since January 2014 (up 25bps y-o-y). 1.544 TN, or 55%, within the last 279 weeks. 535bn, or 4.0%, over the past year. 15.9bn. Small Time Deposits and Retail Money Funds were little changed.
