We think the peak in Treasury yields is still to come

We doubt that the 10-year Treasury yield has peaked in this cycle. Admittedly, it has fallen back markedly on net over the past couple of weeks; having briefly climbed above 3.20% earlier this month, it is now at around ~2.85%. But, it has risen ~5bp so far today and we suspect that it will climb a lot more over the next 12 months or so.

CEE currencies face external and domestic headwinds

We think that currencies in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) will depreciate further against the euro over the rest of this year. Within the region, we anticipate that the koruna will continue to outperform and the forint will remain a regional laggard – we forecast it to fall by another ~4.5%, to 400/€, by end-2022.

We doubt the drop in Gilt yields and sterling will persist

We doubt that the recent fall in the yield of 10-year Gilts will continue. Indeed, we expect it to rebound to a significantly  higher level than its recent peak over the next year or so. We also think that the pound will fare relatively well against the US dollar over this period, even if comes under further pressure in the near term.
