Summary:

The Global Markets Research team breaks down the underlying factors of the Japanese equity rally and flash crash. While they believe the speculative phase of the equity rally has ended, they argue that the next leg of the rally will require domestic investors to reallocate cash.
In the second piece, the research team discusses the outcome of the recent ECB meeting. The team believes that the main take-away from the meeting is that bold action on ABS or any other “bold tools” such as a cut in the deposit rate are no longer an option.
