Week In Review – July 27


  • U.S. 10-year yield wider on the week and pushed toward 3 percent. GDP data good but below whispers
  • Turkey 10-year rates out 72 bps as concerns over lack of liquidity, indie monetary policy, and Trump threats
  • Some decent tightening in U.S. corporate credit spreads
  • Italy sovereign spread out 12 bps
  • Japan 10-year JGB yield doubles on spec BoJ policy in for some changes
  • China RMB 2 percent weaker
  • EM currencies continue July bounce
  • Decent week for global stocks, led by Argentina’ continued recovery
  • Nasdaq hammered on Facebook swan dive and FANG sell-off
  • Russell down 2 percent on the week
  • Lumber continues in a bear market
  • Saudi and Qatar only country ETFs with double-digit returns

Commentary:   None.  Prepare for dog days of August,  no liquidity, and typically an ugly month for equity returns.
