Weekly Macro Themes - 4 March 2022
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 Growth Scare: We review our leading indicators and consider the balance of risks to the outlook given some of the recent new information that has come to light.
2. Stocks vs Bonds: (following on from that) a review and reiteration of our call on stocks vs bonds based on a full review for US + global (technicals, macro, sentiment/positioning, value).
3. Defensive Assets: Finally, we spend some time looking for places to hide if the seemingly multiple downside risks materialize, weighing strengths/weaknesses of 4 options.
