The European Central Bank left it’s benchmark rate unchanged this morning and committed to keep it there for an extended period of time.  Meanwhile on our own soil, traders of stocks and bonds have priced in a 0.25% increase to our own central bank’s benchmark rate next week.  Stocks indices are just off their all-time highs achieved earlier this month, while bonds too are selling off.  Markets are for sure pricing in declining returns in the future.
