“ECB Tells Banks to Prepare for a Major Crisis” Editorial by Charles Sannett

My love is boundless, my love is boundless,

This is a dispatch from the Reuters company that goes again to the most recent assertion by the president of the European Banking Authority, Andrea Enrrea. Nothing much less.

If it’s said in a supply as official as approved.

His foremost speech at a convention held in Brussels on Monday is offered right here.

“The eurozone banking sector is powerful however, as a recession, the European Central Bank (ECB) is eager for credit score establishments to take a look at their capital forecasts forward of a probably harsh winter”..

You will discover the method utilized and the determine of speech imposed however which has completely no curiosity “banking sector is tight”… after all. As lengthy as every thing is inside customary guidelines and averages, every thing is strong. Our techniques solely deal with cash with comparatively small customary deviations. Any excessive occasion is clearly out of the common and subsequently out of scope and probably creates main issues.

“We encourage banks to deal with specializing in sectors which might be notably power dependent and susceptible to power shocks.”.

And sure… and there are various sectors susceptible to power shocks. A bundle of firms which might be prone to chapter as a result of European governments don’t shield firms with tariff shields. All industries, all companies that devour a lot of power to produce merchandise with low added worth will go bankrupt and stop to perform. This is already the case with the most important European producer of bathroom paper in Germany which has filed for chapter And sure, bathroom paper does not promote very costly however requires a lot of power, as does the complete glass business, from glass bottles for wine or orange juice to yogurt jars. This will pressure them to file for chapter in 2023.

“So we’re asking the banks to revise their capital forecasts within the bleak, hostile state of affairs and we are going to begin a dialogue with them. »

The dialogue right here would come with making banks cross stress exams, however growing their provisions for “value of danger” akin to banks’ default charges.

But it doesn’t finish right here.

Andrea Enria additionally spoke and mentioned the businesses current “Commercial or residential actual property financing akin to client credit score was notably uncovered to credit score value will increase, which warrants particular consideration in its view.”.

And there, in case you’ve adopted me thus far, you may higher perceive why the Banque de France will not increase greater than what the calculation method for put on charges supplies. The Banque de France is aware of that a main actual property disaster is imminent. He is aware of this as a result of it’s the ECB that can willingly provoke him. So banks have to be compelled to drastically scale back the quantity of loans given to them to keep away from extra losses.

This was the primary time Banque de France acted on this approach. I believe the approaching actual property disaster might probably be a actual crash. But we are going to discuss it.

Finally, Enria mentions the issue of derivatives. “And then there’s additionally the difficulty of publicity to power by-product netting, which we lately recognized.”.

I do not suppose these issues are massive, as a result of the European stage ought to determine to droop these merchandise to keep away from the explosion of the monetary system.

Remember that central banks at all times create crises by elevating rates of interest considerably. When this price improve is mixed with a rise in power costs, the recession that hits the financial system is at all times very robust, even multiples.

A recession just isn’t the top of the world. Far from it. It is a blessed time to purchase even low cost property and earn a lot of cash. And with each disaster, it is at all times the identical, massive banks, massive funds revenue from it You too ought to see this time of disaster and recession as a possibility to acquire wealth. That’s why the very best funding right now is to keep in money and wait for a sale. Be affected person. This will likely be one of many foremost themes of the technique paper for the subsequent few months!

It’s already too late, however all just isn’t misplaced.

Prepare yourselves!
