Weekly Macro Themes - 20 November 2020

Here's a brief overview of the topics and charts covered in the latest edition of the Weekly Macro Themes report (the flagship report of our institutional research service). I put this report out weekly late Friday NZ time and aim to cover a good mix of macro/ideas/risk management topics, across a global macro/multi-asset universe.

This week I covered the following topics/ideas:

1. US Dollar: Maintain bearish view given downturn in medium-longer term indicators, weak technicals.


2. Commodities: Reiterate medium-term bullish commodities view given cheap valuations, weak capex, macro tailwinds, and bullish technicals.


3. Industrial Metals: Industrial metals are gaining a second wind; and economic recovery along with covid disruption and EM monetary easing look set to push them toward a key long-term resistance level.


4. Crude Oil: Cautiously optimistic crude short-term, but need to see a breakout. More constructive medium-term, particularly on a relative basis vs gold.


5. Agri Commodities: Remain bullish given pandemic disruptions, record low capex indicators, potential weather volatility, and bullish technicals.
