A View from the Bridge - July 2016

Data output for July was never going to be anything but dramatic after the Brexit result but it wasn't the UK grabbing the headlines. US seasonally and inflation adjusted annual GDP growth of just 1.2% in Q2 was the weakest pace in any expansion period since 1949! This was at odds with some of the more positive news as consumer spending remains strong, home sales have hit a post-recession high and 287 thousand new jobs were added but reduced business investment, large reductions in inventories and declining Government spending have clearly knocked economic output. The likelihood of a September rate hike has reduced to 12% and US long term rates have hit the lowest in their 227 year history.

A View from the Bridge - Jan 2018

Global growth enters 2018 on a strong footing with confidence surveys at multi-year highs in many regions and inflation expectations still tame but without fears of deflation hindering investment decisions. Strong growth in Q1 should underpin the late 2017 surge in equity and credit valuations, but the outlook for H2 2018 could prove more challenging for asset markets if some of these positive forces plateau or go into reverse.
