Opportunities We See

  • US economic recovery beginning to gain traction, while monetary policy still at extreme levels of easing
  • Moderate output growth, coupled with no wage growth & low inflation, leaving policy makers and market uncertain of next steps
  • ECB, the most recent central bank to begin easing, has illustrated its desire for higher inflation, which will impact the euro directly
  • Rising stock prices, nascent economic recovery & current account surplus defying euro skeptics so far
  • Bank of Japan Governor Kuroda believes in export-led growth and will do all it takes to weaken the Yen, continuing quantitative easing
  • Market trading more with news about additional stimulus than with fundamentals
