Financial market developments

Quarterly Bulletin 1995 Q3
Published on 01 September 1995
  • Confidence among investors and issuers appeared to recover quickly in the second quarter after the turbulent conditions earlier in the year, and risk premia fell on a range of higher-risk assets. Nevertheless, trading and issuing activity remained muted compared with early 1994.

  • Activity in derivatives markets was subdued, in part reflecting the more stable conditions in underlying cash markets and in part end-users’ continuing reaction to a number of highly visible losses in derivatives markets in recent quarters.

  • Issue levels in both bond and equity markets remained low compared with early 1994; but early indications suggest that volumes have been rising—and maturities lengthening—since the start of the year.
