French bonds are also under pressure: they have risen in five years by 16 points. Above all, the markets are concerned about doubts about the actions of the European Central Bank, which are being worked on to solve many problems, including the strength of the new anti-proliferation shield and the potential conditions for the recipient countries. “They have a plan to develop a plan, but the market wants more detail,” says Willem Sels of Hsbc. “It’s good that the ECB has reacted, but nothing new,” adds Hadege Dufosse of Candriam.

Adding to the doubts about Eurotower are the concerns of the Fed, which is considered too aggressive. The historical interest rate hike of 0.75% to fight accelerating inflation is fueling fear of recession, which is now almost taken for granted in the US where opportunities are now given at 72%. The Bank of England is also adopting a “hawk” strategy, which has increased the cost of funds by a quarter point, warning that rates could flare above 11% by the end of the year. The cost of living is also driving the SNB to take action, surprisingly raising interest rates for the first time in 15 years, and adjusting the cost of money by 0.50%. Markets are inevitably watching this new pressure from central banks anxiously, fearing its effects on the economy. Indeed, the rallies threaten to stifle the recovery by pushing the global economy into recession without any certainty, other than public statements, that the battle against inflation can be won.
