This week we covered the following topics/ideas:
1. 2019 vs 2018 – Initial Reflections: As we near the end of 2019 defensive assets look expensive, various measures of sentiment and confidence have reset, and monetary policy is back into stimulus mode.
2. US Dollar: With yield support rolling over, valuation slightly expensive, positioning stretched to the long side, the USD outlook remains bearish with a couple of possible catalysts in play.
3. Gold: Though some of the indicators for gold have reset slightly from the strong bearish signals back in September, I retain a bearish bias until a more meaningful reset takes place.
4. Oil & Energy Stocks: The risk outlook for crude oil is shifting to the upside, and this could be just what the deep value energy and MLP sectors need to wake them out of their slumber.
5. EM Sovereign Bonds: While credit risk pricing is already quite tight and the duration outlook is not good, the FX outlook provides some consolation for local currency EM sovereign bonds.
