Central banks: a new way to create market support‪?‬ IG Trading the Markets

    • Investing

With the Federal Reserve now targeting the corporate bond market, investors and traders seem to be rejoicing with a new wave of buying. Is this the next big thing in terms of market support? The longest bull market run in stock market history was, seemingly, generated by central banks buying government bonds, as well as cutting rates, but as yet the corporate bond market has been, mostly, untouched.
IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor is joined by Chris Beauchamp, IG’s chief market analyst to look at the new strategy being pursued by the US authorities and discuss whether this is the next new big thing which will underpin the markets in the face of a possible second wave of Covid-19?
