We think that China’s equities will continue to struggle

Even though we doubt that China’s equities will fare anywhere near as badly over the next couple of years as they did in 2021, we do not expect them to make strong gains from here either.

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.

Earnings may be the next headwind for the S&P 500

Despite its struggles yesterday, we think the S&P 500 may have some way further to fall as the economy slows and more companies struggle to meet optimistic earnings expectations. Note: We’ll be discussing the markets outlook in light of Wednesday’s sell-off in a 20-minute online briefing on 19th May at 10:30 ET/ 15:30 BST. Register now.

We think the post-payrolls sell-off in Treasuries will continue

Even though investors appear to have raised their expectations for Fed rate hikes following the latest US employment report, we think they may still be underestimating how far the federal funds rate will rise in the next few years. This is one reason why we think that long-term Treasury yields will rise further still.

Taking stock of a dismal year for EM equities

Even if virus concerns abate, we doubt that 2022 will see a spectacular turnaround for emerging market equities.

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.
