Liquidity improvements shaping risk apatite - Westpac

FXStreet (Guatemala) - Richard Franulovich, analyst at Westpac explained that liquidity back into the market should help improve risk apatite conditions for a period of time at least.

Key Quotes:

“The BoJ's expansion of their QQE program and the ECB's plans to steer their balance sheet back toward its March 2012 dimensions - if they are to be believed, by +1EURtrn to EUR3trn - will do much to offset the less supportive impact on "global liquidity conditions" stemming from the Fed's tapering of asset purchases and the contraction in EM FX reserves”.

“However, longer term trends in risk appetite will be shaped by more than just liquidity conditions”.

“As it happens some useful long term leading indicators warn that we may be at the multi-year low point for volatility with 2015 and beyond likely to be a much more rockier environment”.
