Shifting tides - market liquidity and market-making in fixed income instruments
Ingo Fender and
BIS Quarterly Review, 2015
Drawing from a recent report by the Committee on the Global Financial System, we identify signs of increased fragility and divergence of liquidity conditions across different fixed income markets. Market-making is concentrating in the most liquid securities and deteriorating in the less liquid ones. The shift reflects cyclical (eg changes in risk appetite) as well as structural (eg tighter risk management or regulation) forces affecting both the supply of and demand for market-making services. Although it is difficult to definitively assess the market implications, we outline several possible initiatives that could help buttress market liquidity.
