Volatility To Return?

  • After a period of unusual calm, markets are getting a little more volatile. We think such volatility was always going to come, given the long period of unusual stability.
  • This is informed by vertigo after strong gains, retreating central banks, tax cuts going nowhere and the prospect of trade troubles.
  • And while we’re alarmed about the trade thinking that informs part of the US administration and do not relish a trade war, we don’t think the latter is a given.
