Market Outlook

U.S. Economy & Long Term Interest Rate Outlook

  • Economic Cycle Research Institute has the best record of predicting recessions through their Weekly Leading Indicators (WLI).
  • Current WLI reading has been deteriorating since peak in February but not in recession territory (last 2 weeks have seen a reversal to the upside). Note: nine out of last ten bear markets coincident with a U.S. recession.
  • Softer U.S. GDP growth in the next couple of quarters likely means a bond market rally in the ensuing months, which will be good for the interest sensitive equity sector.
  • Real M1 numbers, however, for G-7 and E-7 nations suggests firm global GDP recovery through first half of 2018, which is good for a trading nation like Canada.
