Title slide: Central bank blitz fuels growth risk A flurry of central bank moves revealed many are ignoring the crushing effects that sharply higher rates could have on economies. Closing frame: Learn more: www. Share Facebook Twitter Linkedin. Market commentary Asset class views. Investment themes. Fed projections Fed funds and GDP growth projections by meeting.
A policy trade-off In fact, the Fed is facing an acute trade-off: either slam down activity or live with persistent inflation while production capacity recovers. What this all means for investments We already reduced portfolio risk twice this year on growing concerns over the effect of the energy crunch on growth and central banks overtightening. Week ahead. Directional views Strategic long-term and tactical month views on broad asset classes, June Asset Strategic view Tactical view Commentary Equities We are overweight equities in our strategic views, yet trimmed our overall tilt as the relative appeal versus bonds diminished.
Incorporating climate change in our expected returns brightens the appeal of developed market equities given the large weights of sectors such as tech and healthcare in benchmark indices. Tactically, we are neutral DM equities due to a higher risk of central banks overtightening policy and a deteriorating growth backdrop in China and Europe. Credit We are underweight credit on a strategic basis against a backdrop of rising interest rates.
We prefer to take risk in equities instead. Tactically, we had upgraded credit to neutral as the dramatic selloff this year restored value in areas such as investment grade. We overweight local-currency EM debt on attractive valuations and potential income. A large risk premium compensates investors for inflation risk, in our view. Government bonds We are strategically underweight nominal government bonds, with a preference for shorter-dated maturities over long-dated bonds.
We see yields broadly climbing higher. We stay firmly underweight the long-end as we see investors demanding higher compensation for holding government bonds amid rising inflation and debt levels. We prefer inflation-linked bonds instead. Tactically, we also underweight government bonds as we see the direction of travel for long-term yields as higher — even as yields have surged in We prefer inflation-linked bonds as portfolio diversifiers in the higher inflation regime.
Private markets - We believe non-traditional return streams, including private credit, have the potential to add value and diversification. Our neutral view is based on a starting allocation that is much larger than what most qualified investors hold. Many institutional investors remain underinvested in private markets as they overestimate liquidity risks, in our view.
Private markets are a complex asset class and not suitable for all investors. Tactical granular views Six to month tactical views on selected assets vs. Asset Tactical view Commentary Equities Developed markets We are neutral DM stocks due to uncertainty over policy amid a worsening macro picture.
Their appeal relative to bonds has also diminished. The risk has risen that central banks slam the policy brakes as they focus solely on inflation without fully acknowledging the high costs to growth and jobs. United States We are neutral U. The year-to-date selloff partly reflects this, yet we see no clear catalyst for a rebound. Europe We are neutral European equities as the fresh energy price shock in the aftermath of the tragic war in Ukraine puts the region at risk of stagflation.
We are neutral UK equities. We see the market as fairly valued, and we are not looking to chase the rally in the energy sector as transition to net zero unfolds. Japan We are neutral Japan stocks as part of a broader push to take more caution across DM equities. China We are neutral Chinese equities on a worsening macro outlook. Emerging markets We are neutral EM equities given challenged restart dynamics, high inflation pressures and tight policies.
Asia ex-Japan We are neutral Asia ex-Japan equities. Fixed income U. Treasuries We underweight U. Treasuries even with the yield surge. We see long-term yields moving up further as investors demand a greater term premium. We prefer short-maturity bonds instead and expect a steepening of the yield curve. TIPS as we see inflation as persistent and settling above pre-Covid levels. We prefer TIPS as diversifiers in the inflationary backdrop.
European government bonds We are neutral European government bonds. Despite the recent dip in cryptocurrencies, ether rose nearly 1, percent over the last 12 months compared to the percent increase for Bitcoin. Where a bitcoin is purely a token of value — a currency backed by the perceived value of those who hold it — Ethereum and the ETH blockchain fuel one another. Recent upgrades to the Ethereum network are helping it to scale much faster and reduce the cost of transactions on the network, further pushing the price of the tokens up.
Instead of having a central authority that oversees how the applications on the Ethereum network run and what transactions are processed, Ethereum-based apps are booming. The most common types of these apps are DeFi. The big question is where ETH will end However, there are some who see it growing even faster and more substantially in that time. These experts cite an array of upgrades being made to the network in that will reduce the currently high cost of transactions and drastically increase utility.
The biggest upgrade being eyed by investors is EIP , which will overhaul the transaction fee system used by Ethereum. Instead of sending fees to miners who complete tasks on the network, users will send the fee to the network itself, which will destroy the fee, reducing overall supply and subsequently increasing the value of the currency.
Ethereum represents a sustainable, function-oriented approach to cryptocurrency that will support the future of DeFi. But many people remain on the sidelines, waiting for government regulations to be implemented. While long-time cryptocurrency investors bemoan the thought of regulation limiting the freedom currently available in the market, big investors and companies see the inevitable implementation of such regulations as a source of stability that could lead to mass adoption. After a chaotic few months, the Biden administration is looking at how to address the markets.
A congressional committee has been launched to review digital currencies, the FDIC has asked banks to provide documentation on how they are using digital assets, and Comptroller of the Currency Michael Hsu is reviewing all current and past guidance related to cryptocurrencies. The chairman of the U. Securities and Exchange Commission has gone as far as to warn bad actors that enforcement and regulation are coming.
As a whole, many see these changes as good. Ahmed Shabana is a venture capitalist, startup adviser, investor and entrepreneur.

If you are trading Forex, you are trading on the foreign exchange. On the foreign exchange, you are trading world currencies against each other. The Forex market is often referred to as the 'FX market'. The Forex market is the most liquid market in the world, with over 6 trillion dollars traded on the market every single day! It's bigger than the stock market!
Forex trading is the buying and selling between a forex 'currency pair' including the major currencies, the minor currency pairs and the exotics currency pairs. There are over currency pairs and the most popular currency is the USD. Minor pairs that do not include the U.
Finally, exotic pairs include currency pairs from countries with a developing market presence, such as Sweden, Norway, or Mexico. The Forex market is an excited and fast-paced market, hence, it appeals to a lot of 'retail traders'. You probably have participated in the Forex market without even realising it.
For example, if you are from the United Kingdom and you plan to go on holiday to the United States, you will of course need dollars USD to spend. You might go online or to a currency counter to purchase USD and you would be doing so at the current exchange rate. Then, when you return home from your holiday, you might have USD left.
You return to the currency counter and ask to change your leftover USD back into GBP, but whilst you have been away, the currency exchange rate has moved, meaning you can get back more GBP than you had originally used to purchase your USD, therefore, you have made a profit from your exchange. The Forex market is unique as there is no central marketplace. This means all transactions are done electronically across networks. Also, unlike other markets, the Forex market can be traded around the clock 24 hours a day, 5 days a week Monday - Friday.

The battle lines are drawn heading into the last full week of June. Rallies should be capped by IF the price is heading lower on this stretch with a close below still needed to mark the resumption of the broader downtrend toward Scott Greer, Mentor.
So, big news for BTC in that last week's forecast and my 7-month forecast for the crypto-currency giant came to an almighty end bottoming out at around the area. Now that we're currently trading sub 20k but still inside the big liquidity pool, I expect several things could take place throughout the week ahead. The first is that the bearish momentum will be strong enough to continue the surge lower.
If BTC provides a full breakout and retest of the 20k liquidity zone, I expect further moves down to 15k and beyond. However, I'm leaning more on the side of correctives taking place this week with a move up and out of the 20k area to potentially retest the previous liquidity supply zone at approximately 28k which would be quite a big week for the crypto-currency giant in its current climate. Don't forget that we're coming to the end of June and there could well be some profit-taking happening which could cause some buy-side opportunity.
During bear markets, it is typical for cryptocurrencies and other assets to see short-lived rallies before prices resume the downtrend. Two options are available from the current level. Be patient and wait for the relevant setups. Max Norbury, Mentor. Welcome back, everyone! The past five days in the markets have been truly epic. To say the least, we are in a historical period for global finance.
