May Global Macro Monthly - The limitation of vaccinations

  • 21 Mayo 2021 (7 min de lectura)

Key points

  • Economies continue to be governed by the virus. The US grew in the first quarter after a swift easing in restrictions, China slowed and Europe and Japan both saw contractions.
  • Inflation has picked up in many areas, reflecting base effects, commodity prices and bottlenecks. The pick-up should prove temporary. We expect inflation to return below target in most developed economies. US inflation is likely more persistent. Some emerging markets may also see pressure.
  • Developed market central banks will look through the temporary inflation spike but will monitor inflation expectation developments closely.
  • Despite widespread expectations for an inflation easing, against potent fiscal and monetary stimulus, bonds are susceptible to a sudden adjustment in Fed expectations.
  • Rising real rates should also support USD vs low-yielder crosses.
