A beacon amidst the gloom on Bunds
T he latest sentix survey indicates that investors’ deeply negative medium-term strategic bias on Eurozone bonds has begun to moderate, set against economic expectations that are seen as a slightly less bearish theme for bonds. This fits with the February sentix economic survey, which revealed deteriorating expectations for the eurozone economy (readings dropped from +20.0 to +14.3). At the same time investors’ strategic bias on equities has become less positive. In a relative context, therefore, investors’ underlying negative medium-term strategic bias on eurozone bonds versus equities has moderated, along with expectations for the EZ economy.
