While policymakers may eventually relent, we think their willingness to impose further pain on financial markets continues to be underestimated.

Some market implications of the falls in commodity prices

We think EM LC government bond yields will rise further

We expect local-currency government bond yields in most emerging markets (EMs) to rise a bit in 2022, as EM central banks continue to tighten monetary policy and US Treasury yields increase. In China, though, we think that bond yields will decline as the country’s central bank loosens monetary policy. Note: Central Bank Drop-In – The Fed, ECB and BoE are just some of the key central bank decisions expected in this packed week of meetings. Neil Shearing and a special panel of our chief economists will sift through the outcomes on Thursday, 16th December at 11:00 ET/16:00 GMT and discuss the monetary policy outlook for 2022.

We see little upside for developed market corporate bonds

Even if the global economy proves fairly resilient to Omicron, we don’t think that there is much scope for corporate bonds to perform better than government bonds over the coming years.
