Ft: Weak (Gilt) Auction Demand Puzzles Market

Recommended Posts

I know theres a Gilt thread but the headline alone is worthy of its own thread.

'The British government bond market is struggling to unravel the mystery of why gilt auctions are skirting close to failure at a time when global demand is at record levels'

I mean, FFS, you more than double national debt, you run 5%+ deficit for almost 10 yers, you stuff Gilts into anything related to finance under the pretense of 'shoring up the balance sheet', your currency looks like like a lead balloon.

And its a puzzle???

gilts are a great bet once the In voters win the referendum gilts will rocket again.

In saying that its good to be hedged, very long dated UK gilts make up 25% of my accessible savings (not including pension).

Quite. What was more surprising is that they didn't opt to leverage the possibility of failed gilt auctions on possibility of Brexit even if it had nothing to do with it.

Shh there's still four months to go,i`m suer it`s in the box of fear though

I think they want to scare popel with a pretend economic disaster.

Drawing attention to the UK debt might create a real one, all wholly created by the UK.

We produce house price bubbles.

Funny, but so true. Investment in UK property either directly or through idiot schemes is probably a fair chunk of UK "exports".
