And Finally... This will be brief, it being a public holiday here in Australia (happy birthday Liz!) – and on the subject of the aforementioned Queen Elizabeth II, my congratulations to former RBC and State Street FX stalwart as well as former ACI president Marshall Bailey for his OBE (to financial services and charity). That’s as nice as it gets today, because I need to talk about that most polemic of men, the US president and his irresponsible, but not out of character, leaking of the employment data.
In the FICC of It There’s something for everyone in this week’s In the FICC of It podcast as Colin Lambert and Galen Stops traverse the US legal system, trading, crypto and China. Listen in as Lambert explains why he is mystified at the prosecution’s flip-flop in the Mark Johnson case and angry at the FX industry’s previous lack of effort to explain how markets work to the US legal authorities; and Stops takes a look at a new report n his favourite industry – CTAs. Having had the data explained to him, Lambert also thinks he knows why some CTA sectors are doing well and some aren’t, so that’s another of his “theories” then… Our podcasters then move onto debate whether crypto markets will evolve to an OTC model and whether this would be a good thing for attracting institutional money to what is still a relatively nascent market. Stops closes out by reporting from an analysts’ briefing this week that highlighted a change in approach on the part of China to its programme of liberalisation of the yuan.
