• Allgemeine Makro-Lage: die Weltwirtschaft läuft «lauwarm» vor sich hin.

Trip Report October Hong Kong

- The leading indicators point to an acceleration of growth in China with container and railway freight volumes picking up
- A global growth surprise could benefit Asian markets as the valuation is considerably lower than in the USA
- A potential trade war between the US and China could however dampen the prospects for 2017
- The frequency and severity of political shocks have risen and there is more to come, especially in Europe with elections in France, the Netherlands, Germany and possibly also Italy
- The view in fixed income is that inflation will remain low forever, yet commodity markets have started to disagree
- The inclusion of China A-Shares to the MSCI could revive the market in 2017 after a disappointing 2016
- The devaluation of the Chinese and other Asian currencies compared to the USD will continue

Fazit: Es bleiben für die Zeit bis zum Jahresende drei negative Schlüsselrisiken mit unterschiedlicher Eintretenswahrscheinlichkeit (in %): a) «Recount-Risk» USA (20%, wenig wahrscheinlich); b) negativer Landslide gegen Renzi (45%) und c) Fortsetzung des Bondcrash (50%) aufgrund Ölpreis/bzw. Inflationserwartungen, welcher Druck auf Aktienmärkte ausüben würde. Da derzeit die positive Signale in der Eurozone wie auch in China überwiegen, würden wir in Schwäche hinein nochmals etwas Eurozonen-Aktien aufbauen. In der Schweiz ist Stockpicking angesagt.

  • Momentum strategies suffered this year due to several trend reversals - mean reversion strategies did relatively well
  • As the second largest economy China’s impact on global macro trends is on the rise and watching China closely may help explaining market dislocations in other parts of the world
  • Money keeps flowing to the US due to negative interest rates in Europe and Japan and terrorism in the Middle East
  • Credit spreads have priced in the wave of defaults seen in the energy sector  and discounted a recessionary environment, yet defaults remain below average outside the energy space
  • US growth could surprise to the upside next year based on stable consumption due to wage growth, more capex after the energy sector bottomed, and policy actions by the new government
