    PMI disappoints
    On Wednesday, the flash estimate of the manufacturing purchasing managers index (PMI) for the eurozone was released. While the reading of 55.5 points missed consensus expectations (56.1), which had called for stabilization after the steady decline from the historical peak reported at the end of 2017 (60.6), it remains at a stron

    Here’s why the world’s two biggest economies want to avoid an allout trade war.
    After having their nerves tested in recent weeks, investors are hopeful the US and China can avert a full-scale trade war. So are we. The rhetoric emanating from Washington and Beijing is, we believe, simply the initial phase of a negotiation that will result in a new trade agreeme

    I will be working in Asia for most of the coming two weeks, and I am very much looking forward to it. What a great time to dig more deeply into events on the Korean peninsula, and to get a Chinese angle on trade negotiations with the United States. I am also looking forward to bulgogi, xiaolongbao, nasi lemak and other regional delicacies

    UBS House view
    Former CIA Director and commander of US forces in Afghanistan, David Petraeus, recently spoke with some of our clients about the strategic importance of “getting the big things right.” He made a powerful point. But while nobody would disagree with his idea, implementing it is far from straightforward. First, you have to know what the big things

    T. Rowe Price - Finding “Unloved” Value In Emerging Markets

    The rally in emerging market (EM) equities over the past two years has been largely concentrated in a select group of new economy1 stocks, mainly within the technology/internet and healthcare areas, as well as China Ashare companies. Old economy stocks2 , however, have lagged the rally in emerging markets over the past two years. Today we believe that there is real opportunity to be found in lo

    This paper assesses the relative importance of perceived obstacles to hiring workers on a permanent basis faced by EU firms and studies how they depend on firm’s characteristics. Findings suggest that the main obstacles to hiring in Europe are high uncertainty, shortage of skilled labour, high payroll taxes, high wages and the risks associated w

    ECB - Sticky expectations and consumption dynamics

    Working Paper Series
    Macroeconomic models often invoke consumption habits to explain the substantial persistence of macroeconomic consumption growth. But a large literature has found no evidence of habits in the microeconomic datasets that measure the behavior of individual households. We show that the apparent conict can be explained by a model in which consumers have ac

    One of the most conspicuous developments of the past few weeks is that the US 10-year Treasury yield has risen above the 3% mark for the first time since the middle of 2011. In this respect it is interesting to note that yields below 3% were hardly ever seen between the late 18th century and the early 1930s and when this happened it was only for a brief period o

    Fixed Income Perspectives 
    The return of volatility has been the dominant headline since the beginning of the year. Fast forward to May as investors watched the ten-year yield break through 3% and reach seven-year highs. The shape of the yield curve has come into focus, and the market is beginning to question if we have moved close to the edge of an abyss. Not quite

    A tug of war between downward and upward forces is preventing clear directional trends in the markets: equities are moving in a broad trading range, below year-to-date highs, and, in general, we have entered into a regime of diminished returns. Sensitivity to news flow is, and will continue to be, very high, as markets try to adjust to new financia

    Cycle perspective. The ongoing expansionary phase of profit cycle likely to last in 2018-19 in US and Europe while in Japan seems more mature with some signal of “fatigue” for 2019.

    Wereldwijd liepen de kapitaalmarktrentes op. In de Verenigde Staten stegen de renteniveaus door de combinatie van oplopende reële rentes en hogere inflatiedruk. De Amerikaanse 10-jaarsrente steeg naar het hoogste niveau sinds 2011. In andere landen stegen de rentes vooral vanwege politieke redenen. De Italiaanse 10-jaarsrente liep op to

    Following strong and revised US retail data last week, the US 10-year Treasury yield broke the key resistance level of 3.03%, which was set in 2013. The yield then continued to rise, closing the week at 3.06% — having touched its highest level since 2011.1 Central banks appear set on a path of gradual rate normalisation and they expect to meet thei

    Regional View
    The recent, likely temporary loss of investor appetite for emerging market assets, which we reiterate is due more due to external factors than structural weakness, has nevertheless exposed some of the more vulnerable countries. In addition to Argentina, which I've discussed here, Turkey has suffered from investor angst. For a country beset with geopoliti

    The Weekly Brief
    Over the recent weeks, the return of risk appetite has been partly fueled by wage growth and inflation data releases in the U.S., which came out below market expectations. Meanwhile, the sharp rise in oil prices has lifted energy stocks which along with the recovery in IT stocks have been key contributors to the rebound in risk assets in May, both in Euro

    • The political situation in Italy is still uncertain, with some indication, but no formal appointment of the Prime Minister. We may witness a somewhat unusual state of affairs over the next few days, a sort of “technical government” of no parliamentary extraction, subject to a political contract. This could prove challenging in the medium-
