  • Embrace the contradictions of QE and sell all the good stuff (Financial Times) Do you think Swiss interest rates will be higher in five years? How about German rates? Right now the rates are negative. A problem for investors shorting any security with a coupon or dividend is the shorter must pay those amounts as they come due. Well, in the case of the 5-year notes mentioned anyone short will receive the negative coupon from the seller. So you collect "dividends" while short - a once in a lifetime (many lifetimes?) opportunity. See next article for what people are buying in Europe (and what you could be buying with your with the shorting proceeds).
  • Investors pile into eurozone shares (Financial Times) Since 01 December 2014 the euro has declined nearly 16%. Over the same time period the dollar value of assets in the FTSE Eurofirst 300 ETF has risen more than 8% during a time period when European stocks are nearly flat in dollar terms. That is because new money has been pouring in. For all European equity funds the inflow has been $35.6 billion in 2015.
