    Global economy's 'Titanic' problem: HSBC

    The Telegraph
    The global economic recovery is dangerously close to stalling and if China chooses to abandon its crawling dollar peg, it could unleash a further deflationary shock across the economy plunging the world back into crash territory, warns HSBC. With zero interest rates proliferating, the available policy tools to handle the next crunch are dwindling rapidly, akin to the Titanic hoping to navigate perilous seas without the security of lifeboats. If the low-growth malaise continues, there will be no ammunition left for the world's central bankers to effect policy if indeed there is another crash.

    Oil bears miss out as record US refinery demand drives rally

    Bloomberg
    Oil speculators missed out as record demand from US refineries helped trim supplies from their highest level in more than eight decades and drive prices higher. Hedge funds and other money managers reduced their net-long position in West Texas Intermediate crude by 7.1 percent in the seven days ended May 19, the most in two months, US Commodity Futures Trading Commission data show. Short positions anticipating lower prices expanded by 30 percent. Crude snapped a five-day decline the following day after US production fell to a three-month low and inventories slipped to the least since March. Demand from refineries is the strongest for this time of year on record as they prepare for the nation’s peak driving season.

    Is the UK gilt vulnerable?

    Owner / Seven Days Ahead
    United Kingdom
    There are many delicately poised factors at work in the government bond markets and the UK gilt market in particular, and their net effect is far from clear. The least predictable of these, as ever, is the price of oil and the politics of the Middle East. They could yet be the decisive factor once again.
