FRM early view summary July 2015

Investors faced a dilemma this summer as markets balanced to the upside but the risks were weighted to the downside; developed markets were stagnant caused by a lack of strong price momentum or volumes – given global liquidity FRM believed there were unlikely to be sufficient catalysts for a downturn until autumn. Market concerns about Greece and China reached a peak and then calmed leaving behind a sense of anticipation for July.

FRM has two chief concerns: the first is the Fed rate hike as well as the next interest rate cycle, and the second is events in China. It may be that economic conditions in the US are softer than the Fed would like before tightening the cycle, however, backing off could send signals that would not help market confidence. Alternatively, FRM believes that it may be worse to tighten in July, which would have squeezed commodity-producing countries and pushed the USD higher.
