Here's a brief overview of the topics and charts covered in the latest edition of the Weekly Macro Themes report. I send this report out late Friday NZ time and aim to cover a good mix of macro/ideas/risk topics, across a global macro/multi-asset universe.
This week I covered the following topics/ideas:
1. US Credit Spreads: Continuing to monitor risk indicators for credit as valuations reach extreme expensive/complacent; focused on a specific set of macro indicators (which look good at the moment) as a trigger to shift bearish.
2. Gold Price Outlook: Slight change to the view given where technicals, sentiment, positioning, monetary signals and valuations sit.
3. Gold & USD: Conventional wisdom says a stronger dollar would be a headwind to gold, we dig into this conventional wisdom to see if it is actually wise and also review the outlook for the US dollar.
4. Gold Miners: Reviewing the outlook for gold miners given valuations, positioning, market breadth, technicals, and intermarkets.
5. Silver: We also review the suite of indicators for silver and lay out the near term outlook and parameters for the next steps.
