"The sell-off in US Treasury bonds in 2013 had global repercussions, impacting broad ranges of asset classes in both advanced and emerging market economies. The sell-off in 1994 is distinguished from 2003 and 2013 episodes in that, in 1994, not only did long-term rates surge, short-term rates also picked up significantly. By contrast, in both 2003 and 2013, bond market stress was confined mostly to longer maturities, although drivers of the 2003 event were different from those in 2013." As well as analyzing and investigating recent developments in vulnerabilities and volatility on the New York Stock Exchange, this chapter investigates the topic of the value relevance of accounting information in global capital markets as a means of contributing to the topic of value relevance - and particularly highlighting the impact of monetary policies and growth rates of certain economies at a global level. It also highlights why fundamentals presently underlying present stock market volatilities differ from those of previous crises.
