This week we covered the following topics/ideas:
1. OECD Leading Indicators: A new wave of easing by EM central banks should reinforce the nascent recovery in EM leading indicators, meanwhile DM leading indicators continue to worsen.
2. US Treasuries: US 10-year treasuries are overbought and overvalued.
3. Japan Equities: Japanese equities are trading on attractive valuations, and sentiment is clearly bearish (good for contrarians), yet the strengthening Yen is a complicating factor.
4. Crude Oil (+NatGas): Short-term the odds of a bounce in oil prices look decent, but further out supply growth, softer demand growth, and 2-way geopolitical risk add uncertainty.
5. NZ Equities: Lower yields have pushed NZ equities to extreme expensive absolute valuations.
