This spring has not proven to be as hard on banking as many predicted after last fall and winter’s non-stop problems, however, there are still plenty of reasons to worry, according to an article recently published in The Economist. One of the largest problems is the health of the world economy. China’s economy is still drastically slowing with leaders in that country having to announce that some positive figures they announced earlier with erroneous. The retributions of China’s diminished imports and lower demand for commodities have been felt globally. Additionally, the cost continues to mount for refugees fleeing Iraq and Syria. World governments and companies continue to struggle to limit CO2 emissions. Oil countries could not come to an agreement in Doha, Qatar.
The good news is that currency depreciation has continued to act as a shock absorber helping to economic shocks. How long this remains the current situation has led to much debate with the fear being that may reveal balance sheet vulnerabilities or spark inflation. This is likely to be the case if oil prices do not recover very soon. If the prices remain low, then investors will continue to be jittery. Corporate and sovereign dislocations may increase the nervousness of investors even more.
