  • What to make of the return of risk on flow

On Thursday, it got what it was looking for, in the form of a soft run of US economic data, highlighted by a downward revision to the personal consumption component of GDP.

  • Mild profit taking on Dollar longs

    Most of the price action into the North American open is about some position squaring from shorter-term accounts.

  • Stagflation risk ramping up

    US yields continue to drive higher in the face of a Fed monetary policy outlook that continues to press higher for longer, despite escalating growth concerns.

  • Yield differentials continue to lean to US Dollar

    The market is back to worrying about slowing growth in the US, though this hasn’t been enough to inspire much change in overall price action.

  • Takeaways into the end of the week

    As we head into Friday, there are two important takeaways from developments this week. The first is that higher for longer Fed policy is something investors need to consider more seriously. The second is that while the Fed has been talking about a solid economy and higher for longer, we haven’t exactly been getting the […]

  • Monetary policy divergence becoming a bigger deal

    Things kick off into the North American open with the Bank of England holding rates at 5.25% by the slimmest of margins. The Pound has since come under another round of intense pressure, with many market participants caught off guard by the news. Wrap-Up Call

  • Fed refuses to bend to the will of the market

    No surprise to see the market reaction in the aftermath of Wednesday’s Fed decision. We had warned the balance of risk was tilted this way in our special report and indeed this is how things have played out.
