Key macro themes
The U.S. Federal Reserve, European Central Bank, and Bank of Japan continue to play an outsize
role in global markets, with much of the world still looking to aggressively stimulate growth
through monetary policy.
After nearly doubling off their February lows, oil prices may be finding an equilibrium point near $50 a barrel—a level that reduces downside market risk but continues to weigh on profits. An OPEC production agreement would further solidify oil’s new base.
The U.S. dollar remains elevated in the context of aggressive monetary policy overseas and the Fed’s desire to normalize policy here at home. Geopolitical risks offer potential for further strengthening in the months ahead.
