ECB President Lagarde has been speaking a lot recently, though it is not certain that these interventions have improved investor understanding about policy.

India's actual death toll from Covid could range between 1.3 million and a staggering 5 million, research models and local authority data suggest. More variants are coming but the U.S. isn't ready to track them.

The key stuff that matters…The longer term outlook for stocks remains rosy according to JPM - "Fed being active for at least another 9 month (=FED balance-sheet hitting new highs again/still..), strong corporate balance sheets, increasing buybacks, potential for M&A/Private Equity buyouts, and the healthiest consumer financial profile in our lifetimes should continue to support a move higher in Equities". GS raises EV sales forecasts for the next 20 years by around 20%, now having EV penetration to 56% in 2040. Highlighting Tesla, BYD, VW, and Toyota "as companies we expect to capitalize on this electrification mega trend". Also introducing a hyper adoption scenario (chart 2).

GS: "We acknowledge that oil prices may continue to gyrate (wildly) in the coming weeks given the uncertainties of the Delta variant and the slow velocity of supply developments relative to the recent demand gains visible in daily high frequency data. Nonetheless, we believe that the oil market repricing to a higher equilibrium is not over, driven by (1) poor accumulated producer returns of the past 5 years, (2) the inflationary impact of internalizing carbon emissions and (3) the rising uncertainty and pessimism on long-term oil demand" Autos has been hude driver of the U.S inflation overshoot, but cooling demand suggest it will soon become a drag !

But there was a notable lack of similar energy in some other markets, as the Japanese equity market closed far off its highs despite a USDJPY rebound, and the particularly in FX, where the USD has remained strong more broadly and the AUD, for example, punched to new lows for the cycle versus the greenback.

US NAHB Housing Market Index Jul: 80 (est 82; prev 81), Fed's Neel Kashkari says many US sectors struggling to adjust to reopening The epidemic curve is literally in the hands of the (UK) public, in terms of behaviors, Jonathan Van-Tam said as he urged people to be gradual and cautious in the reopening, China’s cyberspace authority has drafted new rules requiring its approval of technology firms before allowing international initial public offerings.

USD remains firm to slightly firmer, CROSSJPY’s remains soft in ‘sell rally mode’ Having been light on risk lately, we should find some good opportunities over next few weeks, as markets hesitate on actual economic recovery, struggle to actually re-open or lack of (more like new lockdowns in few places) etc.. and inflationary impacts due to supply chain issues RBA Minutes said “conditions for an increase in the cash rate would not be met until 2024”; “economic outcomes had been materially better than earlier expected…in light of these improvements…members decided to adjust weekly purchases from $5 billion to $4 billion”.

In the US, the market found support at rather pivotal levels, with the burning tactical question from here whether the market can pull itself together and keep this sell-off in the "consolidation" category or whether we are suffered for a more significant deleveraging move, or "correction". Also on today's pod, our strategist in Australia, Eleanor Creagh, takes us through the RBA's latest thinking, the outlook down under for the economy, corporate earnings and more.

U.S. government tells individuals to avoid travel to the UK as Covid cases rise Whole travelling sector, airlines further hit yesterday.. Morgan Stanley strategists’ mid-cycle transition narrative has been playing out nicely since mid-March, with small caps and lower-quality stocks underperforming consistently. Quality can mean a lot of things and for many it simply means large cap growth win. While many of these stocks fit the high-quality bill, they think the quality rotation will now begin to favor more defensive properties like earnings stability rather than growth. In this week’s missive, Mike Wilson downgrades Materials (while upgrading Staples). Materials are highly levered to the early cycle part of the recovery and inflection higher in commodity prices, which now look vulnerable to a correction as we get a payback on demand from last year's over consumption. A word on Breadth: Market breadth has been deteriorating for months and is just another confirmation of the mid-cycle transition, in their view. It usually ends with a material (10-20%) index level correction.
