Straws in the Wind
A time for observation not forecasts
Forecasting with precision all the components of a bear market is very difficult. Observing the increasing number of signals which point in that direction is much easier. These range from US high yield to Eurozone government bonds and US and European equity strategy. It’s not all bad news. There are some positives, such as the potential for a surprise in UK Equities, and a message to buy duration in US Treasuries. However, the overall message from these straws in the wind is very powerful.
