    Goldilocks And The 10 Bears Of 2021

    In recent years Anatole has written a series of articles describing 10 key risks for investors. He readily accepts that this year’s exercise was rendered redundant by the emergence of Covid-19 in January. Next year, however, he believes that a greater range of factors could weigh on markets and in this piece assesses them one by one.

    What Will Stop The Dollar’s Decline?

    On Thursday night the US dollar index broke below the 90 level and so put an exclamation mark on two months of weakness. This sell-off means that the DXY now trades on a 14-day RSI of 22.8. The dollar is thus about as “oversold” as it has been in recent years. And up until 2020, buying the US currency at “oversold” levels was a winning strategy, if only because it was in a structural bull market. However, in the past year, buying the dips (...

    A Looming Correction For Iron Ore

    Iron ore prices hit an eight year high in early December in response to a tight steel market. Rosealea writes that this uptick in steel demand, likely due to China’s strong steel-intensive export figures, is unsustainable and should subside in the new year—resulting in a correction for iron ore prices in the coming months.

    The Boom Of 2021

    As he gazes into next year, Charles has reviewed some of his most trusted indicators and found that the US is moving towards an inflationary boom that should mean stronger growth, rising inflation and higher bond yields. If the Federal Reserve acts to crimp this adjustment in the price of money, he warns that the US dollar could tank.

    The Return Of European Inflation

    After averaging 1.2% YoY in 2019, the eurozone’s “harmonized” inflation rate went negative and settled at an abysmal -0.3% YoY in the last three months. Other price indicators have underwhelmed, as shown by the eurozone’s Citigroup inflation surprise index wallowing below -20%. In the US, by contrast, the same measure jumped back into positive territory after August. So what gives?

    The Road To Policy Normalization

    China’s economy is almost back to normal after Covid-19, and that means economic policy will also normalize: the question is not whether, but how. In this piece, Wei argues that the most likely policy settings for 2021 will be somewhat tighter fiscal policy and a deceleration in total credit growth, but no increase in policy interest rates.

    The Lure Of Korea In A Rotation

    Hopes for a return to normality as Covid vaccines get rolled out have helped fuel a global rotation from growth to value equities, and from previous “Covid winners” to “Covid losers”. Due to its better pandemic management, clear policy headroom and exposure to the electronics sector, Asia has generally been a Covid winner. Hence, Udith Sikand and myself have argued that beaten-up non-Asian markets are the way to play this rotation (see Asia’s...

    A Reluctant Executioner

    MSCI announced on Tuesday the removal of 10 Chinese securities from its indexes in response to a US executive order. In this Quick Take, Thomas explains why MSCI’s narrow interpretation of the order leads to risk of more Chinese securities being added to the list, and how the decision adds to existing headwinds for Chinese equities.

    Deal Or No Deal: Should We Really Care?

    As the fifth season of the Brexit soap opera lumbers towards a predictably messy climax, the prospect of a sixth season will probably be enough to discourage international investors from considering British assets and sterling for another year or more. And rightly so. British assets should continue to be avoided because sterling at its present level represents a case of “heads I lose, tails I don’t win”.

    The 10 Important Changes Of The Past Year

    Two years ago, 10-year treasury yields were falling (and trading below their 200-day moving average), oil prices were falling (and also below trend) and the US dollar was rising (and trading above its trend level). Today, the situation has reversed for all of these anchor prices in the global system. This profound change can be explained with reference to 10 tectonic shifts in the global economy.

    An Unfavorable Risk-Reward Bet

    Today sees the US vaccination program initiated, and investors are enthused that some kind of return to normal life is finally becoming visible. Nowhere has this “glass half full” view been stronger than in the US corporate credit market, as yield spreads for both investment-grade and high-yield bonds have broken new lows. These moves have occurred despite treasury yields creeping higher, and are starting to look overcooked.

    The Real Bubble

    The older I get, the more I am convinced that the economy is nothing but energy transformed. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, the story of the economy has been one of constant movement from not very efficient sources of energy, such as wood and then coal, to more “dense” and efficient sources, such as oil and nuclear fission, with the aim having been to arrive eventually at nuclear fusion.

    Social Credit And Digital Governance

    China’s social credit system is widely misunderstood as a totalitarian tool. The reality is that it is a relatively low-tech part of a sophisticated Communist Party strategy to use digital means to deliver both better governance and social control. In this 22-page DeepChina report, Rogier Creemers explains the truth behind the social credit myths.

    What Price Now The Big Tech Model?

    On Wednesday the US Federal Trade Commission launched its antitrust suit against Facebook, alleging illegal anticompetitive acquisitions. The action came as no surprise. It has long been anticipated, and follows the suit against Google for anticompetitive practices filed by the Department of Justice in October. Nevertheless, in calling for the breakup of Facebook, with the forcible divestment of Instagram and WhatsApp, the FTC’s suit represents...

    India Macro Update: Long Road To Recovery

    India’s economy is starting to recover through a process that will be slow, painful and uneven. Growth may resume this quarter, but the economy is still on course to shrink by around -10% in the current fiscal year. The Covid-19 situation has stabilized and vaccines should soon be rolled out, yet local restrictions may feature right through next year. The government may finally ramp up fiscal spending, which should aid near-term growth prospects...

    Asia’s Fully-Priced Winners

    In the league table of Covid winners and losers, emerging Asia’s equity markets rank among the winners. The perception among international investors is that East Asian societies handled the outbreak better than Europe and the US, and better than non-Asian emerging economies. On top of that, Asian governments rolled out unconventional monetary and fiscal support relatively early, and regional exporters have benefited from solid external demand...
