Commento di Martin Arnold, Director – FX & Macro Strategist per ETF Securities

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 26 gennaio 2017

londraLondra. La Corte Suprema della Gran Bretagna ha confermato la decisione dell’Alta Corte: è necessario il voto del Parlamento per attivare l’Articolo 50 e avviare così il processo di uscita dall’UE.Ci aspettiamo che la sterlina continuerà a essere ben sostenuta nel breve periodo, con l’inizio delle negoziazioni e la presa di coscienza, da parte dagli investitori, delle problematiche sottostanti e della tempistica che il processo di uscita dall’UE richiede.Una “hard Brexit” non è il nostro scenario favorito, ma è probabile che la sterlina si mantenga volatile. Gli investitori avranno comunque numerose opportunità per prendere esposizione sulla valuta, che dovrebbe muoversi in una gamma fra 1.21 e 1.27 contro il dollaro americano.
Riteniamo che la Brexit sia ancora uno scenario probabile, ma potremmo anche aspettarci che la sua attuazione venga rinviata per lasciare il posto, nel frattempo, a un dibattito governativo che faccia chiarezza su tempi e modalità dell’attivazione.
La decisione della Corte Suprema di oggi era largamente attesa, e la sterlina aveva registrato un rimbalzo nei giorni scorsi dai livelli bassi post referendum sull’UE. E’ in ogni caso un altro duro colpo al Primo Ministro, che ha adottato la linea dura nel cercare di attuare ciò che chiama “la volontà del popolo”.La libera circolazione delle persone e i contributi al budget dell’UE sono stati due aspetti determinanti per l’esito del referendum. Sebbene questi rimangano due dei principali obiettivi dei Conservatori, resta da vedere con chi negozierà il governo inglese, considerato che nei prossimi due anni si terranno molte elezioni nel continente. I Socialisti hanno perso la Presidenza del Parlamento Europeo e questo aspetto potrebbe potenzialmente dividere il Parlamento e complicare qualsiasi negoziazione sulla Brexit.

Study clears traders failing to deliver for collapse of Lehman Brothers in financial crash

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 23 aprile 2015

university buffalo managementTraders who ‘failed to deliver’ on stock market trades during the 2007-08 financial crash have been cleared of causing the collapse of major financial firms such as AIG, Lehman Brothers and Bear Stearns, according to a new study.After the crash the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) brought in rules to stop aggressive naked short-selling, which can produce many ‘fails to deliver’ (FTDs), as they were blamed in part for the demise of Lehman Brothers – the fourth largest investment bank in the US. A former Under Secretary of Commerce claimed that naked short selling cost investors $1 billion and drove 1,000 companies into the ground.But research from Vikas Raman, of Warwick Business School, Veljko Fotak, of the University of Buffalo School of Management, and Pradeep Yadav, of the University of Oklahoma, found no evidence that FTDs caused the failure of financial firms and found the spikes in the number of FTDs came after the Lehman Brothers and other firms had announced they were in trouble.FTDs occur when the position on a stock can’t be covered, either the short seller can’t afford the shares or they are not available three days after the sale. Naked short-selling – where the short seller bets that a stock’s price will fall without even borrowing the shares before selling them and then looks to cover their positions immediately after the sale – is seen as the main cause of FTDs.Dr Raman said: “Our research found that the spikes in FTD activity came after news about the firms’ financial problems had been announced.“There was an abnormal amount of FTDs during the crash, which you would expect. When there is negative news traders want to short-sell so there would be an increase in FTDs, but when we analysed the data we found they did not precipitate the announcements of the financial firms being in difficulty and the subsequent falls in stock prices.Also, contrary to what has been suggested in the media and by regulators the study found FTDs do not have a detrimental effect on stock markets. It found no evidence that FTDs caused price distortions. In fact the study showed the ability to fail has a beneficial impact on liquidity and the pricing efficiency of equity markets.For samples of both the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and NASDAQ, increases in FTDs lead to a reduction in pricing errors, intraday volatility, spreads, and order imbalances.The paper, Fails-to-Deliver-Short Selling, and Market Quality, published in the Journal of Financial Economics saw the researchers analyse 1,492 NYSE stocks over a 42-month period from January 2005 to June 2008. For robustness they also looked at 2,381 NASDAQ ordinary common-share issues over the same period.The researchers’ analysis found that large FTD changes are followed by next day improvements in market liquidity and pricing efficiency. According to the research, FTDs affected about 95 per cent of NYSE securities.Significantly, the research found that despite a strong regulatory focus by the SEC on reducing FTDs this did not have the intended effect and had a detrimental effect on liquidity. While the SEC order banning FTDs arising from naked short sales did lead to a drastic reduction in FTDs, it also led to a significant increase in absolute pricing errors, relative bid-ask spreads, and intraday volatility.Dr Raman added: “FTDs are not really any different in terms of impact on the market, than short-sells that eventually get covered, they bring liquidity and price efficiency, FTDs are doing the same thing.“Yet after the crash FTDs were more or less banned in the US. Our study shows that this regulation is not supported by research, instead a mechanism that helped liquidity and price efficiency has been taken out of the market.”Dr Raman added: “The removal of the ability to fail by the SEC and in other European countries since the crash for all public traders is somewhat debatable. They help liquidity and regulators most important role is to focus on how best to maintain liquidity and transparency in the stock borrowing market. Instead of a virtual ban on FTDs regulators could consider progressive fines for any delays in settling a trade.”

Performance Etf Securities

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 24 ottobre 2010

Nel mese di settembre, gli investitori hanno continuato a costruire posizioni long sul gas naturale, accrescendo l’asset under management (AUM) degli ETC sui combustibili fossili che ha battuto il nuovo record di 2,5 miliardi di dollari. I flussi del comparto energia sono stati dominati dagli afflussi nel gas naturale che hanno registrato ingenti investimenti durante il mese, equamente distribuiti tra  ETFS Natural Gas (NGAS) ed ETFS Leveraged natural Gas (LNGA). Sembra che gli investitori stiano anticipando i danni che il ciclone tropicale potrebbe arrecare alle attrezzature per la trivellazione del gas nel Golfo del Messico causando, quindi, l’aumento dei prezzi.  In una sola settimana del mese di settembre, gli ETC agricoli hanno visto 31 milioni di dollari di deflussi, dato che gli investitori hanno esercitato il take profit. I problemi legati alle scorte continuano a sostenere i prezzi e gli investitori hanno tratto beneficio dalla situazione per ridurre le posizioni. I deflussi hanno colpito particolarmente ETFS Corn (CORN) (- 13 milioni di dollari –  i deflussi più ingenti degli ultimi due anni), ETFS Sugar (SUGA) (- 6 milioni di dollari) ed ETFS Agriculture (AIGA) (- 9 milioni di dollari). Nonostante i deflussi, il totale dei titoli degli ETC agricoli è di 1,7 miliardi di dollari, in crescita di quasi 365 milioni di dollari rispetto allo stesso periodo dell’anno scorso.
Gli ETC fisici sull’oro hanno avuto influssi netti durante sei delle ultime sette settimane, per un totale di $511 milioni, dopo che l’oro ha raggiunto prezzi record di $1280 per oncia. Anche gli  ETC fisici sull’argento hanno raggiunto livelli record per un totale di 40,6 milioni di once. Gli investitori si sono dimostrati particolarmente sensibili ad un ulteriore evento espansivo della Federal Reserve e dalla crescita del deficit Irlandese.
Nel mese di settembre, gli ETC sui metalli industriali hanno registrato afflussi ingenti ma gli investitori dimostrano di essere divisi sulla posizione da prendere. Alcuni investitori hanno puntato sugli ETC long del comparto metalli industriali che in una sola settimana ha registrato afflussi netti negli pari a 10 milioni di dollari, divisi tra ETFS Copper (COPA) con 6,7milioni di dollari ed ETFS Aluminium (ALUM). Altri, più preoccupati sulla possibilità di una ripresa sostenibile hanno diretto le loro attenzioni su ETFS Short Copper (SCOP) che ha visto afflussi netti di 8,5 milioni di dollari.
Nel mese di settembre, ETFX DAXglobal Gold Mining Fund (AUCO) ha registrato la performance più ingente dall’inizio dell’anno. AUCO è il solo ETF della piattaforma ETFx di ETF Securities che ha avuto rendimenti a doppia cifra su uno, sei e 12 mesi con utili del 30% rispetto all’anno precedente. Nel mese di settembre, gli ETF su acciaio, petrolio e risorse di base continuano a dare profitti.
ETFX S-net ITG Global Agri Business Fund (AGRI) ha registrato forti rendimenti grazie all’aumento dei prezzi dell’agricoltura.
ETFX DAXglobal Shipping Fund (SSHIP) si conferma tra i top performer di quest’anno, superando le oscillazioni del sentiment di mercato con una crescita del 6% da inizio anno.

Le tre piattaforme di exchange-traded product

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 21 luglio 2010

ETF Securities ha pubblicato le statistiche relative alla prima metà del 2010, che riguardano le tre piattaforme di exchange-traded product (commodity, valute ed ETF azionari). Ecco di seguito le maggiori evidenze al 30 giugno 2010: ETFS Physical Gold è stato in rialzo del 34% in euro. L’oro è diventato una delle migliori asset class di ETF Securities durante la prima metà del 2010 dato che gli investitori stanno cercando beni rifugio dall’aumento del rischio sovrano e bancario in Europa. Nello stesso periodo, l’indice FTSE ha registrato una flessione del 14% e l’Euro Stoxx 50 una del 20% in dollari statunitensi. L’attivo gestito (AUM) degli ETC di ETF Securities sull’oro fisico ha raccolto 2,6 miliardi di dollari statunitensi, raggiungendo adesso un totale di 11,4 miliardi di dollari statunitensi. Si tratta di una crescita del 30% da fine dicembre ed è l’aumento più grande mai registrato su base semestrale. Gli ETC di ETF Securities sull’oro fisico, che detengono 9,3 milioni di once a fine di giugno 2010, rappresentano un primato a livello europeo e sono secondi a livello mondiale per oro corrispettivo sottostante. Le società attive nell’estrazione aurifera hanno beneficiato della ripresa del prezzo dell’oro con ETFX DAXglobal Gold Mining Fund in crescita del 28% in euro nella prima metà del 2010. Dopo una performance particolarmente forte registrata nel primo trimestre, la debolezza dei mercati azionari mondiali ha eroso alcuni dei profitti realizzati nel secondo trimestre 2010. Gli ETC sulle valute hanno beneficiato dello spostamento dell’avversione al rischio, con ETFS Long JPY Short EUR in crescita del 23% nella prima metà del 2010 dato che gli investitori si sono adoperati per liquidare attività economiche di rischio finanziate in Yen giapponesi. Un altro dei maggiori beneficiari dell’aumento dell’avversione al rischio è stato ETFS Long USD Short EUR in crescita del 17%. Gli investitori infatti hanno chiuso le posizioni in euro posizionandosi sul dollaro statunitense visto che la crisi greca ha alimentato largamente le preoccupazioni del debito statale in Europa.
ETFS Physical Palladium ha registrato nella prima metà del 2010 una crescita del 11% in dollari statunitensi dato la costante e ingente domanda di automobili in Cina, la penuria di scorte e un consensus generale sul fatto che le riserve di platino della Russia potrebbero essere più basse rispetto a quanto precedentemente previsto.  Gli ETC di ETF Securities hanno registrato 361 milioni di afflussi nella prima metà del 2010, guidati dalla forte domanda proveniente dagli Stati Uniti dove ETF Securities ha quotato i primi prodotti su platino e palladio fisico ad inizio gennaio.
ETFS Physical Silver ha registrato un’ottima performance nella prima metà del 2010, con una crescita del 10%. L’ETC sull’argento fisico ha beneficiato del suo status di riserva di valore e bene rifugio simile all’oro. La forte performance di oro, argento e palladio ha fatto in modo che ETFS Physical PM Basket (che include oro, argento, platino e palladio) completasse la performance dei metalli preziosi con un  aumento del 10,4%.
