The Dawn Patrol – 05.07.12 – On the ECB and China Loan to Deposit Ratio. The LCM RCUBE Monthly report is out!!!!!! Edouard Carmignac letter to M. Hollande.


Markets to open flat today, as Asian markets were quite weak and most expect the ECB to announce a 25bp cut to 0.75% and the BOE to remain at 0.50%. Macro eyes will monitor German factory orders, Jobless claims and the ISM non manufacturing. Also there are some European bond auctions today: Spain at 10:30, France at 11:00 and Ireland at 11:30.

On the ECB
Bets are open on the size of the cut. Barclays, Jefferies, Nomura and SocGen are all on a 50bp cut, all the others expect 25bp. On the deposit rates the dispersion is a bit wider. As this is widely expected, it shouldn’t be the surprise factor, but waht will be is any announcement on further liquidity related announcement such as an LTRO. Also the Q&A with Mr Draghi may bring hints of further moves and on the role of the ECB in terms of the banking union.

On China
The Chinese government is studying the removal of the 75% loan-deposit ratio, an operational mandate that analysts widely believe acts as a constraint on the ability of banks to lend, official sources have told MNI. Two sources within the banking regulator and central bank confirmed that government departments are looking at completely removing the requirement, rather than relaxing the ceiling, as had been expected.


HSBC survey shows 40% of Fund Managers bullish on stocks for 3Q – 70% of surveyed prefer N.American stocks; no respondents bearish towards Asia Pacific equities; 50% bullish on Greater China – More fund managers are cautious on bonds as they view some bonds as overvalued; most continue to prefer high-yield bonds


The LCM RCUBE monthly report for July is out. It’s of course a must read.
You’ll find that we were right in terms of market movement, but a bit early. Since the more bulish call, Earnings Revisions Ratios haved rolled over and the picture on that front less attractive…
