The Slow Slide In Global Bond Yields & What It Means

Takeaway: Global bond yields hit new lows this morning nailing our #GrowthSlowing call.

The Slow Slide In Global Bond Yields & What It Means - bond yields

Get that Global Growth is Slowing?

 

Global bond yields do. Here's analysis via Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough in a note sent to subscribers earlier this morning:

 

"Around the world (Swiss 10yr yield hitting new lows this am at -0.40%), long-term yields have had #TheCycle right from a GDP #GrowthSlowing perspective – question now is, with the Fed “probably” raising rates in June/July, what do we do with our league leading positions in Long-Term Bonds, Munis, Utes, etc? I say it’s time to book some gains and enjoy the summer – we can always buy them back."

 

Below is a chart of the direction of global bond yields (indexed to 100) and what they've done in the past year:

An Update On Global Growth Slowing & Wall Street's False Narratives

Takeaway: Recently reported PMIs and revisions to the OECD's growth outlook spell out what we've long know here at Hedgeye. Global growth is slowing.

An Update On Global Growth Slowing & Wall Street's False Narratives - wall st

 

Wall Street storytelling about the stock market is at an all-time high. And one of those tall tales completely unravelled this week, Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough writes in a note sent to subscribers this morning: 

 

"One narrative (for almost a year now) has been that “PMIs have bottomed” – and, clearly, post yesterday’s Chicago PMI of 49.3, last night’s China PMI of 50.2, and this morning’s 3 month low Eurozone PMI of 51.5, they have not – neither has copper and/or 'Chinese demand.'"

 

 

MORE EVIDENCE OF GLOBAL #GROWTHSLOWING THIS MORNING

 

The OECD announced it is lowering its global growth forecasts yet again, while our Macro team has been steadfastly predicting global #GrowthSlowing for well over a year now.

 

 

Here's the breakdown of the OECD's revisions:

 

  • Forecast for combined economy of 34 OECD countries is 1.8% this year and 2.1% in 2017 versus 2.2% and 2.3% respectively in November;
  • Similarly, the U.S. economy is expected to grow 1.8% this year and 2.2% in 2017, versus 2.5% and 2.4% in November;
  • The Eurozone economy is forecast to grow 1.6% this year from 1.3% in February. For 2017, the eurozone forecast was held flat at 1.7%;
  • Japanese growth is expected to be 0.7% this year and 0.4% in 2017 versus the 0.8% and 0.6% predictions in February;
