We expect the S&P 500 to make only small gains

While we have raised our end-22 and end-23 forecasts for the S&P 500, we still expect gains in the index to be smaller over the next two years than they have been in 2021 and on average over the past decade.

Markets are creaking but not (yet) breaking

So far, the sell-off across bond and equity markets this year has not triggered major signs of systemic risk. If that were to change, central banks would probably have to step in to prevent a destabilising cycle of panic selling and money market distress from taking hold, even if such as step would to some extent clash with their plans to tighten monetary policy further. This publication takes stock of the various signs of stress across the global financial system. We intend to update the analysis periodically while the current market turmoil continues. In view of the wider interest, we are making this Stress Monitor available to clients of our Global Markets, FX Markets, and Asset Allocation Services.

We think 10-year US inflation compensation will rise again

Even though headline US CPI inflation may now have peaked, we still think long-term inflation compensation could rise a little over the next couple of years.

New German government may affect BTPs more than Bunds

We think the new German Government will not have a significant impact on the outlook for German Bunds. But at the margin, the uncertainty surrounding its stance in the upcoming negotiations on reforms to the EU stability and growth pact adds to the reasons to expect the spreads of euro-zone “peripheral” government bonds over German Bunds to widen somewhat over the next year.
