Goldilocks’ Comments and Global Economic News Tuesday Evening  5-28-24

Good Evening ,

“Wall Street Moves to Fastest Settlement of Trades in a Century”

Today, Wall Street moves to T+1 settlement times. This will minimize risks taken in the market when it comes to ensuring enough money secured on both sides of a trade.

I am aware that many people are calling for a crash in the market this week, but it probably will have more to do with moving from T+2 settlements to T+1 settlements this week.

Some of the trades from Friday will get caught in T+2 settlements until all trades are cleared this week.

Also, BuyBacks are coming back into play. This has not been done since the early 2000s. Look for many companies and the Governments to buyback some of their bonds.

Buying back bonds at a discounted price will support the market and give companies the opportunity to buyback some of their own shares.

A buyback in bonds will increase liquidity allowing a company to own more of their shares at a discounted price during volatile moments. It increases the company’s ownership of the shares they repurchase bringing in more profits to the company.

This creates a higher share price on the markets allowing more dividend opportunities for those who own the shares and profits for the company.

Going to a T+1 settlement process will give companies the opportunity to execute new plans for their company with this new money that will be coming in for their use.  Finance Yahoo   Bloomberg

Don’t look for this T+1 settlement to last very long. Many countries have already gone to T+0 settlements.

Those with instant settlement payment systems will have an advantage until everyone catches up.

This is all part of the process in moving to the QFS. The QFS is an electronic system that will allow instant payments to take place. This is the goal.

Why?

The only way to do that is through a digital process moving away from wire payment processing services (ACH) for good.

Financial Services Providers Highlight Opportunities in Cloud-Native Banking | Pymnts

The modernization of back-end systems represents an ongoing challenge for banks, especially as they seek to introduce new digital-first services.

The options used to be stark: Rip and replace, or get the most mileage of the legacy systems already in place.

In recent years we’ve seen the continued emergence of cloud-core banking systems used in the service of conducting daily banking activities, while future-proofing financial institutions for the changes to come — through API connectivity — particularly in instant payments.

Private and public cloud setups (not hosted on the premise of the companies themselves) connect financial services companies with providers and applications that handle everything from payments processing to reporting to compliance. Tied to all those functions are cloud ledgers, which record the transactions themselves automatically.

The shift to the cloud is especially timely, given the rise of embedded payments and embedded lending. Those two trends, along with virtual card issuance, can create new revenue streams for digitally minded enterprises.
