    Why negative interest rates are 'seriously dangerous': strategist

    President Trump’s latest Twitter escapade against the Fed calls for negative interest rates to jump-start the slowing economy. But the prospect of using a monetary tool usually reserved for deeply-troubled economies has many strategists on Wall Street seriously worried. Butcher Joseph Asset Management Chief Investment Strategist Nancy Tengler believes the practice of implementing negative interest rates is “seriously dangerous.” The “$16 trillion in negative yielding debt around the globe - I don't understand how you account for it as an investor,” Tengler said in an interview on Yahoo Finance’s The Final Round.

    This chart explains why the stock market drop in May is not like the drop in December

    There's a key measure of stock market volatility that shows why this month's sell-off has been different than the drop in December. The CBOE Volatility Index, or VIX, is sometimes known as "the fear gauge." The VIX helps measure Wall Street's expectations for large shifts in the stock market in the coming months by looking at prices on S&P 500 options. The VIX is near 18.50 on Friday – close to its 200 day moving average of 16.98.

    Hedge funds bet the sell-off is over: 'Correction has run its course'

    Despite a deterioration in U.S.-China trade relations and a sell-off starting in early May and continuing through Monday, many hedge funds have closed positions betting on a VIX spike. The call-to-put ratio for VIX options — that is, the percentage of people betting on a rise versus a fall in volatility— has since returned to lows not seen for months. "It would appear that the majority of hedge funds do not expect another sharp rise in volatility, and that they have concluded that the correction has run its course," Takada wrote.
