July 16, 2012 -- Financial Market Update:
Risks to financial stability have increased since the April 2012 Global Financial Stability Report (GFSR). Sovereign yields in southern Europe have risen sharply amid further erosion of the investor base. Elevated funding and market pressures pose risks of further cuts in peripheral euro area credit. The measures agreed at the recent European Union (EU) leaders’ summit provide significant steps to address the immediate crisis. Aside from supportive monetary and liquidity policies, the timely implementation of the recently agreed measures, together with further progress on banking and fiscal unions, must be a priority. Uncertainties about the asset quality of banks’ balance sheets must be resolved quickly, with capital injections and restructurings where needed. Growth prospects in other advanced countries and emerging markets have also weakened, leaving them less able to deal with spillovers from the euro area crisis or to address their own home-grown fiscal and financial vulnerabilities. Uncertainties on the fiscal outlook and federal debt ceiling in the United States present a latent risk to financial stability. Text also available in: عربي; 中文; Español; Français; 日本語; Русский.

On March 28, 2008, the Executive Board of the IMF endorsed a major package of reforms that will enhance the institution's governance. Once approved by the Fund's Board of Governors (they are expected to cast their votes by April 28), the agreement will adjust quota shares to better reflect the relative weight of member countries in the world economy, particularly that of dynamic emerging countries. It will also enhance the voice and representation of low-income countries within the IMF.

Multilateral consultations provide a new forum for discussion among members of the international community who share an interest in crucial economic issues. The consultations enable the IMF and its members to agree upon policy actions to address vulnerabilities that affect individual members and the global financial system. They will help policymakers to show that the measures they propose will be matched by measures taken by others, with benefits to all. The first multilateral consultation was launched in 2006 in order to address the issue of global payments imbalances with the IMF being entrusted to facilitate discussion and cooperation among senior policymakers.

December 27, 2006 -- Financial Market Update:
The September 2006 Global Financial Stability Report presented a baseline scenario of solid global growth, contained inflation, and continued financial stability. However, it reported that risks were tilted to the downside. Growth could slow more sharply if the U.S. housing market were to weaken rapidly; inflation could spike, possibly reflecting rising energy prices; and a disorderly unwind of global imbalances remained a threat. Developments since then have been broadly in line with the baseline scenario. Market sentiment has gravitated toward a central scenario for a benign slowdown which keeps inflationary pressures contained. But downside risks remain and there have been changes in underlying financial conditions that warrant continued vigilance. PDF File Size: 465Kb

December 09, 2005 -- Financial Market Update:
Since the release of the September 2005 Global Financial Stability Report, financial conditions in mature and emerging markets have remained favorable, supported by expectations for sustained and broadening global growth, still abundant liquidity, and a continuing investor search for yield. Nevertheless, risks to financial stability remain, especially as interest rate and credit cycles turn and global liquidity is withdrawn. Those emerging markets with structural vulnerabilities could be stressed. In mature markets, markets for leveraged credit instruments could act to amplify reaction to specific credit events, while sub-prime segments of the mortgage markets, particularly in the United States, may be exposed by a fall in housing prices. Global imbalances remain a risk that could lead to disorderly adjustment of financial asset prices even though this remains a low probability event given the robustness of capital flows into the United States.

June 29, 2005 -- Financial Market Update:
Financial markets have produced some unexpected developments so far in 2005. The dollar has appreciated despite a growing U.S. current account deficit, and long-term interest rates have fallen despite increases in short-term policy rates. The decline in long-term yields reflects more moderate expectations for growth and inflation, as well as a shift in long-term investors' preferences towards fixed-income assets. With credit spreads in corporate and emerging debt markets at low levels, the search for yield is increasingly providing incentives for financial market participants to move out the credit spectrum towards riskier assets, and to try to enhance returns through use of complex financial instruments such as credit derivatives.

November 30, 2004 -- Financial Market Update:
Low yields and low volatility have been the hallmarks of major financial markets throughout much of the year. This combination has encouraged investors to take risk, especially in the credit markets, leading to low credit spreads and a very receptive environment for new emerging market bond issuance. However, the combination of low short-term interest rates and low bond market volatility has encouraged leveraged positions in the credit markets, raising the risk that credit spreads have been unduly compressed. Moreover, increased concerns over the heavy reliance of the United States on continued capital inflows to finance its large external current account deficit have resulted in a decline of the dollar.

Changing expectations for the pace and timing of the U.S. tightening cycle have had a profound effect on global investor sentiment, positioning, asset prices, and credit spreads both this year and last. Since early 2004, the prospect of higher short-term interest rates has made investors more cautious and triggered deleveraging across a wide range of markets. This process has been orderly without posing a threat to financial stability or financial intermediaries. PDF File Size: 372Kb

Ample liquidity in main financial centers and improved market confidence spur rally in corporate and emerging market bonds through mid-May. Concerns about U.S. dollar overshooting and uncertain prospects for global growth pose risks. Emerging bond market has benefited from a global quest for yield that has compressed spreads to quite low levels. Primary issuance, however, has lagged earlier years. Rebound in global growth needed to sustain recent improvements in credit quality and financial strength. PDF File Size: 367Kb

December 05, 2003 -- IMF Staff Papers - Volume 50, Number 3, 2003 - The High-Yield Spread as a Predictor of Real Economic Activity: Evidence of a Financial Accelerator for the United States by Ashoka Mody And Mark P. Taylor
Previous studies find that the interest rate term spread predicts real U.S. economic activity. We show that this relationship breaks down for the 1990s and suggest that its earlier success was due to high and volatile inflation. We find, however, that the high-yield spread (HYS) between 'junk bond' and government bond yields predicts real activity during the 1990s--especially high levels of the HYS. We also find that the HYS works through both the demand and the supply side of the economy. We interpret our findings as supportive of a financial accelerator mechanism. [JEL E33, E44]

This paper quantifies the impact of changes in U.S. monetary policy on sovereign bond spreads in emerging market countries. Specifically, the paper explores empirically how country risk, as proxied by sovereign bond spreads, is influenced by U.S. monetary policy, country-specific fundamentals, and conditions in global capital markets. While country-specific fundamentals are important in explaining fluctuations in country risk, the stance and predictability of U.S. monetary policy are also important for stabilizing capital flows and capital market conditions in emerging markets.

We felt the recent situation certainly qualified, and we have written what you have before you.

The only announcement I have to make before taking questions is a somewhat unusual one. After a gap of 16 years, the Fund is about to publish the latest volume of the official history of the Fund. On October 9th it will come out. This is a series started in the 1960s. This latest volume covers the 1980s, and historically, these histories compensated for some of the secrecy in which the Fund often did its business. Now, of course, we're much more open and so, too, is our approach to history.
