We expect H1 2019 to be broadly tough going, due to base effects and volatile weather conditions.

The trade truce is a powerful (albeit transitory) positive event for the markets. If we assume that the risk premium retraces an estimated 50% of its increase since the beginning of May, then the indices should record an increase of around 3%. But watch out, gravity will regain its natural ascendency. Overall growth continues to slow and so does EPS growth. Issues relating to the cycle will resurface and, paradoxically, the appeasing of trade tensions could remove from the Fed an argu...

La trêve décidée est un évènement positif puissant mais transitoire pour les marchés. Si l’on estime que la prime de risque retrace 50% de son augmentation depuis début mai, les indices devraient enregistrer une hausse de l’ordre de 3%. Mais attention, la gravité va reprendre ses droits. La croissance globale poursuit son ralentissement et celle des BPA aussi. Les questions relatives au cycle vont refaire surface et paradoxalement l’apaisement commercial pourrait ôter à la FED un argu...
