Dollar, oil and Treasury yields
Our models suggest that the near-term outlook for crude oil and 10-year Treasury yields is higher, while the trade weighted dollar is lower. This is not the consensus view. More importantly, we think that the medium-term risk-case for Treasury yields and the US dollar is much worse than the consensus is prepared to consider. It is hard to imagine a world of high and rising yields, if you have spent your career in an era of falling yields. The same is true of the dollar but in reverse. Investors ought to make the effort to do so, lest they are unpleasantly surprised.
