FSTE 100 Plagued by Weak GDP Data, Political Missteps and Rising Yields

The FTSE 100 remains vulnerable to downside risk as traders and investors eye key dates later this month. The Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey confirmed that Friday marks the last day the Bank stands ready to intervene in the bond markets in an attempt to quell reports of the possibility of an extension. As discussed earlier by Nick Cawley in his GBP update, the end to the Bank’s support sets a target for those who wish to test the BoE’s resolve. UK central bankers’ jobs have been made even tougher after August GDP figures revealed a shock decline in growth – something the new Prime Minister is looking to tackle head on.

After calming the longer-dated UK bond markets via direct purchases by the central bank, the 30-year government yield in on course to test the recent high - around 6 basis points away at the time of writing – which may see the Bank step up efforts once more.

    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
