Highlights:

  • Risk assets have performed well so far but a sustained rally requires an improvement in the macro outlook.
  • The risk of a trade war remains a major risk, but we expect the US to moderate the tone ahead of next year’s election.
  • Inflation weakness makes central banks more likely to deliver dovish surprises.
  • We keep a pro-risk bias: a small overweight in equity, a bigger one in credit and an underweight in core government bonds.
