Weekly Macro Themes - 15 Dec 2017

Here's a brief preview of the topics and charts covered in the latest edition of the Weekly Macro Themes report.

1. A Wobbling Cycle:  The December global PMI and consumer sentiment numbers look solid, yet there are some concerning signals emerging in the copper price and global equity breadth. 

2. Fed Up Markets:  The Fed funds rate impacts risk assets when it rises too far, too fast, or too high relative to key macro variables, and for now none of these boxes are ticked.  See what charts we're watching and the signals to watch out for. 

3. US Dollar:  The US dollar could have a big year in 2018 and we think it is going to be one of the key things to get right or wrong. Get a copy of the report to see the scenario and supporting charts.

4. EM Equities in Review:  EM equities see significant optimism, complacent risk pricing, and potential headwinds in 2018, yet while absolute value has diminished relative value remains compelling.

5. Exploring value in the Eurozone:  Looking at valuations and expected returns across countries in the Eurozone, there are notable standouts and clear scope for differentiation of exposure across countries.
