    The Importance Of What Didn’t Occur

    Amid all the turmoil of the last week or so, the most significant market move may be one that didn’t happen. When news of omicron hit the wires markets saw sharp moves. Usually in times of uncertainty, the US dollar rises on a safe-haven bid. Last Friday that didn’t happen; the US dollar fell against most major currencies.

    Trading Omicron

    Fear is stalking markets on concerns that the global economy could be hit by an Omicron Covid outbreak and the world’s central bank will not ride to the rescue. Comments by Jay Powell yesterday on a faster-than-planned taper to the Federal Reserve’s asset purchases added to the bad brew for risk assets. This sell-off reminds that despite recent calm conditions, highly-valued US equities are prone to sudden volatility. There are reasons to think...

    The Phantom Menace

    Prices are rising around the world, but how do we know that all orders are real? If firms have responded to global supply congestion and long delivery times by ordering more than they need to meet demand, it is likely that some will end up not taking delivery of what is apparently due them.

    The New, Yet Forgotten, Inflation Force

    The global economy and global energy markets were transformed by China’s dramatic expansion of the last 20 years. Most of that growth was fueled by coal, which now finds itself in policymakers’ crosshairs—even in China. Louis assesses the world’s energy mix and asks what the macroeconomic implications will be of a pronounced move away from the dirty fuel.

    The Economics Of Covid Divergence

    Even before omicron showed up, European governments had reacted to high Covid case loads with demand-sapping limits on travel and social activity. In the US, by contrast, most Covid restrictions continue to be focused on what can be generalized as the economy’s supply side. The betting must be that this divergence of approaches remains—and is even reinforced by omicron.

    Teaching An Old Dog New Tricks

    The US dollar has long been a poor reserve of value. For decades, German bunds did the job. But negative yields mean they no longer fit the bill. That leaves the US equity market as the world’s chosen reserve of value—with far-reaching implications that Charles explores in this landmark paper.

    When Risk Appetite Returns

    Whenever a currency crisis engulfs an emerging economy, investors nervously look around for the next shoe to drop. After the meltdown this week in the Turkish lira—down -20% in November; -40% year-to-date—precedents from the Asian crisis of 1997-98 to the 2013 taper tantrum suggest contagion might be about to spread to infect the rest of the emerging currency complex. However, despite the broad strength of the US dollar and steep falls in a...

    Houston, We Have A Problem

    Charles looks at global bond and equity markets, concluding that the combined effect of central bank policies and private sector indexation is creating a massive corner in the US dollar and US equities.The last time something similar happened was in late 1989, when Japanese equities made up more than half of MSCI World.

    India’s Economy Retreats With Modi

    Last week saw India's prime minister Narendra Modi stun political friend and foe alike with a decision to repeal the laws that underpinned his flagship reform of India’s sclerotic agricultural sector. Udith argues that the likely losers from Modi’s U-turn will be the poor, as India’s structural growth prospects have just taken a big knock.

    Video: Russia And The European Energy Equation

    The sharp rise this year in European energy prices has been widely attributed to Russia, which has declined to increase near-term supplies of natural gas to Europe in line with the region’s demand growth. Nick examines the incentives guiding Moscow’s decisions and explores the potential impact of Russia’s choices on Western Europe’s inflation and growth outlook.

    Biden’s Impotent Signaling

    Media pundits were quick to dismiss Joe Biden’s release of oil from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve as a failure Tuesday, on the grounds that the price of crude oil promptly rose by 4%. They were harsh. Despite Tuesday’s rise, the price of WTI has actually fallen by around -7% over the last four weeks as the market priced in the prospect of an SPR draw.

    Biden's Fed Picks

    President Joe Biden took the path of least resistance in nominating Jay Powell to serve a second term as Federal Reserve chair. It reinforces my view that macro policy will be driven more by changes in the economic data than changes in Fed leadership. At the sectoral level, these appointments should be positive for US bank stocks.

    Tantrum, What Tantrum?

    As the Federal Reserve dials back its quantitative easing program, emerging market assets have come under selling pressure, much as they did in 2013. Yet, it would be wrong to see this as a “taper tantrum”. What cannot be disputed is that global bond markets have, in recent months, thrown a strop.

    Webinar: Contrarian Takes On Two Emerging Markets

    The consensus view seems to be that Brazil is too risky and South Korea is the big money-maker among emerging markets. Not quite so, say Udith and Vincent. In this webinar, Udith outlines why it may be worth it for investors to take on some risk in Brazil and Vincent argues that South Korea’s star may be fading as the export outlook weakens and inflation rises.

    An Italian Renaissance?

    Visiting Gavekal clients in Italy this week for the first time in 18 months, I have been struck by the mood of sunny optimism that pervades the country’s financial community. Arriving there myself with a relatively upbeat view on Italy’s economic prospects, I was expecting at least a partial reality check from clients. But pushbacks were rare and half-hearted. Instead, stories of thriving new start-ups and returning Italian expatriates abounded...

    The Real Yield Mystery

    One of Will’s key calls for 2021 was that real yields on US treasuries would rebound from their deeply negative levels. But despite the news of Fed tapering, real yields have remained stubbornly low. Here, Will examines a number of factors that may be offsetting the expected effect of tapering and concludes investors should be wary a rise in real yields on treasuries.
