|January 07, 2004 -- Financial Market Update: |
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]
