This week we covered the following topics/ideas:
1. China Macro: Given existing trends of softer core inflation, a weak hard data pulse, and likely further slowing of property price growth… (+add the virus impacts), expect more monetary easing by the PBOC.
2. Treasuries: Medium-term risk/return outlook for treasuries is skewed to the downside given overbought breadth indicators, flip in sentiment, and stretched valuations.
3. US Dollar: Wary of the bullish run, but given medium-term technicals, positioning, valuation, cycle indicators, continue to retain medium-term bearish bias on the DXY.
4. Gold: With a breakout in gold through 1600 and breakdown in UST real yields through 0% it looks like the path is clear for further upside, even as valuations become further stretched.
5. REITs: Global (and in particular US) REIT valuations have reached extreme levels.
