  • While deflation and a strong US Dollar remain longer-term market trends, we continue to believe oil could be near a short term bounce.
  • Yields on the 30-year US Treasury have now broken their 2008 and 2012 lows, as yields in the US continue to converge with those around the globe.
  • US Equities continue to hold support and are finding encouragement from the DAX. This German Index surged 5% last week, and has been a good leading indicator for US markets the past few years. Additionally, we suspect the recent outperformance of small cap stocks over large caps may be coming to an end.
  • The general outlook overseas remains mixed with Russia and Brazil weak, while India and China remain strong.
