The World Is Awash With Debt. The Bond Market Has Ballooned Up To $100 Trillion In Size. And Most Nations Are Struggling To Service Their Debt Loads Even With Rates At Historic Lows.

The Fed continues to dangle hints of a “rate hike” in front of investors… but the reality is that as far as any significant raise in rates, its hands are tied.

True, the Fed may raise rates from 0.25% to 0.3% or possible even 0.5% sometime in the next 24 months… but these moves will be largely symbolic.

There are three reasons for this:

1) There are over $555 trillion in interest-rate based derivatives trades sitting on the big banks balance sheets globally.

2) The US Dollar carry trade is over $9 trillion in size.

3) Many Western welfare states would go bankrupt if rates normalized.

Regarding #1… the Fed cannot risk a significant rise in rates, as doing so would potentially burst the bond bubble. Bonds have been in a bull market for over 30 years now. Today, globally the bond market is over $100 trillion in size. And there are over $555 trillion in derivatives that trade based on these bonds.
