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. Global Policy Pulse: Checking in on the state of global monetary policy, key charts to watch and implications for the growth/market outlook.
2. CNY, Asian FX, EMFX: A look at policy divergence, rates outlook, risk indicators for USDCNY and implications for wider EMFX strategy.
3. EM Bonds: Reiterating our previous call on EM sovereign bonds, with a focus on technicals, sentiment, valuations, and the macro drivers.
4. Defensive Value: Given promising technicals and a still sound core thesis, stay the course on this unique defensive asset (especially given growth/market headwinds).
5. Seasonality: This time of the year (Sep-Oct) has historically seen defensive assets outperforming risk assets, with September typically being the worst month for equities.
