ECB interest rate decision leaves investors in uncharted territory

first_imgInvestors have expressed concerns over today’s rate cuts by the European Central Bank (ECB) and lamented the lack of progress on an asset purchase programme.Today, Mario Draghi, president of the ECB, took the bold move of introducing negative deposit rates, now at -0.1%, as the ECB looks to charge European banks for leaving capital in its reserves.The central bank’s move seeks to deter the parking of capital, and for banks in the euro-zone to provide more finance to consumers and business, to spur on economic growth and stave off deflation. The move was coupled with a 10 basis point reduction in the refinancing rate, leaving it a record low of 0.15%. However, investors and economists have warned that the ECB’s move is public acknowledgement of a fear of deflation in the euro-zone, with work now underway for an asset purchase programme.Quantitative easing (QE), an asset purchase programme in the UK and US, resulted in central banks purchasing large segments of government debt to boost liquidity in the market and increase inflation.However, such a programme in the UK artificially boosted the value of Gilt assets, while pushing down the yield of notes, affecting pension scheme valuations.Dawn Kendall, senior strategist at Investec Wealth and Investment, said: “The ECB has signalled a series of measures to combat [deflation] that have been widely predicted. In short, planning work is underway to commence QE.”Neil Williams, chief economist at Hermes Fund Managers, was less positive, saying the move was too little, too late.He said the negative deposit rate would be a red herring given the low demand for credit within the euro-zone and pressure on banking balance sheets, with further rates cuts required.“The ECB’s ‘ground work’ on private asset purchases may help but are not the bazooka of unlimited sovereign QE it could have fired today,” he said.“Draghi’s hesitancy to use all his bullets reflects how empty his policy tool box is.”However, the bank did announce further measures including boosting liquidity in the euro-zone.Such measures reduced the value in the euro, which have recently affected exporters and euro-zone equity performance.Andrew Mulliner, portfolio manager at Henderson Global Investors, said: “Whether the measures taken today have the desired effect will take some time for investors and the ECB to divine.“The impact on credit creation and inflation will only likely be boosted in the medium term, although the ECB has sent a clear message to investors, and the market reaction suggests investors are listening.”last_img read more

UW faces Huskies for 2nd straight time in NCAAs

first_imgThis Saturday morning is sure to serve up some excitement as the University of Wisconsin men’s tennis team heads to Los Angeles after receiving an at-large bid for the NCAA Division I Men’s Championships.Finishing the season 17-9 (9-3 Big Ten), the No. 33 Badgers fell to Illinois in the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament, leaving them with an uncertain future. However, Wisconsin’s impressive undefeated home record proved to be enough, as the team received its second NCAA Championship berth in two years.The Badgers first-round matchup should prove to be an interesting one, as they are pitted against the second-seeded Washington Huskies. Merely one spot above the Badgers, the No. 32 Huskies will be searching for revenge as last season they were defeated by Wisconsin in a 4-3 nail-biter in the NCAA Tournament.The Badgers will look to improve on last year’s display, as they fell short in the second round, getting swept by Notre Dame.“It’s going to be a dogfight either way,” senior Jeremy Sonkin said. “It’s the first round of the NCAA’s; nobody wants to go out. We just have to come out well-conditioned, well-prepared, and both mentally and physically fit.”This week in practice for UW has consisted of mostly outdoor tennis, something they typically don’t do.“We’re just concentrating on hitting a lot of balls and getting a good rhythm,” Sonkin said. “We haven’t really been playing too much outdoor tennis, so that’s what we’re trying to get a feel for. It’s going to be different conditions in California, so we’re just trying to get ready 100 percent.”To head coach Greg Van Emburgh, getting in a rhythm is imperative this week as the Badgers’ first-round matchup is sure to be a grueling one.“It’s going to be a really difficult match for us,” Van Emburgh said. “They are extremely well-coached. Those guys are going to be ready to play, so I think it’s going to be really important for us to — when that first ball is hit — be ready to have a battle right from the beginning.”Four is the magic number in this one, as the first team to four victories wins.“It’s going to take all the guys stepping up — at all the positions — and it’s going to take a team effort,” Van Emburgh said. “Last year we beat them 4-3, and it came down to Moritz Baumann’s match for the match. They’re a really strong team and they’re going to be looking for a little bit of revenge from last year. We’re going to need to be ready to go from the start.”If the Badgers come up on top, they will be facing the winner of Eastern Washington and host-school and overall No. 3 seed UCLA. “[UCLA is] probably one of three of the top teams in the country,” Van Emburgh said. “We won’t look past Washington and, if we do get through, we’ll go out playing loose and excited to face UCLA at their home court.”Though the Badgers may have been victorious against the Huskies in the past, they won’t be able to overlook them this time as they take the NCAA Championship one match at a time.last_img read more

Hemingway, Alexander carry SU over weekend

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 16, 2010 at 12:00 pm After Monday night’s thrashing of overmatched Cornell, Quentin Hillsman stepped to the podium for his press conference and went through the positives he took out of the big win. There was the improvement from SU’s first game, a 72-69 win over Northeastern. The execution down the stretch. Good transition offense and fewer mistakes, among other things. But after that list, the first names Hillsman said were two starting members of the Orange frontcourt: Kayla Alexander and Iasia Hemingway. They were the first two Hillsman complimented after the victory over the Big Red, and they have been the driving forces behind SU’s first two wins this year. Alexander, a sophomore center, and Hemingway, a junior transfer from Georgia Tech, have keyed the Orange (2-0) to massive rebounding and free-throw shooting advantages through two games. Their styles of play are different, but both of them give Syracuse the ability to score in the paint. ‘Coach always tells us to play at the rim,’ Hemingway said. ‘We do what we have to do. When he says play at the rim, we do it. We attack the rim, we get to the free-throw line.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Through the first two games, Alexander has led the team with 15.5 points per game while Hemingway is second with 13.5. Neither has taken a 3-point shot, as both players thrive underneath the basket. Alexander’s 6-foot-4 frame creates mismatches for opposing defenses. Against Cornell, she lived in the paint, awaiting dump-down feeds from her guards on the perimeter. From there, she has the ability to score in a variety of ways: draining a soft hook or easy layup, drawing a foul and getting to the line or collecting her own miss for an easy putback. Fellow sophomore Carmen Tyson-Thomas said Alexander’s presence in the middle makes it a necessity for SU to get the ball to her on the blocks. ‘That is always our game plan,’ she said, ‘to give the ball inside low because Kayla always has mismatches. Kayla’s always there. She’s hitting the glass more this year so she happens to be there. And if she’s in position like she’s supposed to, we’re going to get her the ball.’ But Hemingway hasn’t scored her points by setting up down low. She has been crashing the boards after Orange shots to snag the offensive rebound. And much of the time, when she pulls in the loose ball, she either puts it back or gets to the free-throw line. Against Cornell, it seemed that whenever the junior pulled in a rebound, someone always managed to end up on the Carrier Dome floor, whether it was a Big Red player or Hemingway herself. Alexander said she enjoys having the Georgia Tech transfer at her side. ‘I love playing with Iasia,’ the sophomore said. ‘She is a beast on the court. Pretty much when she’s in there, just let her get the rebound or else you’re going to get an elbow or something.’ Behind the performance of the frontcourt duo, the Orange has some sizeable edges in two key parts of the game. It has outrebounded Northeastern and Cornell by a combined 117 to 57 and gotten to the free-throw line 41 more times than its opponents. Alexander and Hemingway have 23 free-throw shots between themselves, equaling the combined total for the team’s two opponents. The talent — or lack thereof — of Syracuse’s two opponents has helped Hemingway and Alexander’s success. Northeastern was picked to finish last in the Colonial Athletic Association, and Cornell was ranked second to last in the Ivy League’s preseason rankings. Hemingway has not flashed the ability to create scoring opportunities for herself, and Alexander thrived last year in SU’s nonconference schedule before her play significantly dropped off in Big East play. But in Hillsman’s mind, inside scoring is a major part of the Orange’s offense. And two games into Syracuse’s season, Alexander and Hemingway have been the biggest providers of those points in the paint. ‘We want to score at the basket,’ Hillsman said. ‘And it’s so huge to really throw the ball to the high post and go high-low, get the ball to the rim. Obviously, when you can get high percentage shots like that, we’re going to be successful. That’s a very big part of our offense.’ zjbrown@syr.educenter_img Commentslast_img read more

7-assist outing earns Stephen Rehfuss ACC offensive player of the week

first_imgStephen Rehfuss caught a pass in his customary spot on the right wing just below the goal line. Using Jamie Trimboli as a screen, he cradled the ball up past the goal line and toward the middle of the restraining box with his head up the whole way during Syracuse’s game against Johns Hopkins last Saturday. Rehfuss’ looping pass found Chase Scanlan on the opposite wing, and Scanlan took a few steps toward the center of the offensive zone before leaning into his defender and shooting sidearm. The ball nestling into the nylon behind the Blue Jays’ goalie resulted in a familiar line on the stat sheet for No. 1 Syracuse (5-0): Scanlan, assisted by Rehfuss for the ninth time this season. It was also Rehfuss’ seventh assist of the day, which has earned him Atlantic Coast Conference offensive player of the week honors. Only three times has that assist milestone been reached by a Syracuse player since 2000 — Rehfuss holds two of those marks in the last five weeks.Rehfuss became the third Syracuse player to win an ACC weekly honor after Scanlan won it on Feb. 11 for his seven goals on debut against Colgate and Drake Porter was recognized on Feb. 25 for a career-high 18 saves against Army. The redshirt senior attack is on pace to shatter his career-high points record for a season (48) in 2018. His 18 assists this year leads the team with no other player having more than five. He also has 20 points, which is tied for second on the team with Trimboli and trailing only Scanlan’s 23 points. Army held SU’s attack to zero points two weeks ago, and against Hobart, the Orange relied on 17 combined points from the first midfield line. But against Johns Hopkins this past Saturday, Syracuse’s attack again shone. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textScanlan and Rehfuss combined for 13 points with Griffin Cook also adding an assist. Rehfuss also picked up four assists in the opening frame to help the Orange open up a 7-2 lead. The Blue Jays chose to put their short-stick midfielder on Rehfuss, and the attack punished that decision.
