Notable Observations and Trends:
- Unfortunately not much has changed this week. Many of the themes I identified last week appear to be ongoing.
- Defensive positioning is still prevalent as Precious Metals Miners and Precious Metals have continued to outperform.
- The relative strength of the Emerging/Frontier and Consumer Discretionary composites over the last 21 and 10 days respectively is somewhat interesting. This gives the appearance of "Risk-On" but the other evidence implies investors should tread carefully.
- My current working theory is that T-Bonds provide a safe yield for global investors given the increasing popularity of NIRP. The corollary to that thesis is that the Precious Metals complex acts like a put on runaway Central Bank policy. It is likely that Precious Metals will continue to show relative strength until NIRP is removed from the Federal Reserve's policy discussion.
