AVM's Global Macro CIO Ashvin Murthy on reflation, positive real rates, US dominance, Fed & no YCC

Kay Van-Petersen
Global Macro Strategist

Summary:  Our fourth Dragon Interview takes us back to checking in with AVM's Global Macro CIO Ashvin Murthy - Ash walks us through his latest top of mind thoughts, including positioning in the shifting market regime, inflation, real yields, no YCC, the Fed & the potential US dominance theme - which judging by where the DXY & gold closed on Fri Mar 26, at 92.766 & 1732.52 is still largely mispriced by the market.

A US dominance theme should see much strong US Dollar (DXY easily back above 94 to 96 lvls), gold getting hosed potentially back to $1580/$1530 lvls -9% to -12%, as well as US equities outperforming Emerging Markets & Euro-Zone equities, plus higher US bond yields & overall higher real rates. In addition to US economic data, the Fed meetings of Apr 28 & especially Jun 16 are going to be pivotal..

Republished for the Weekend-Warriors - we check in with AVM's Global Macro CIO, Ashvin Murthy from our Dragon Interviews series

Post our foundation piece with Global Macro Hedge Fund AVM's Ashvin Murthy in Oct of 2020, we catch up with Ash to get his latest thoughts as we head into a likely series of very key Fed meetings in regards to them being neutral, vs potentially hiking, vs the YCC route.

We touch on a number of things, including:

  • Bond yields & real interest rate levels - including context from previous ranges

  • Inflation & deflationary forces

  • Powell doing a great job at the Fed, letting the market doing the heavy lifting

  • Biden administration & the corp. taxes on the way, as a function of funding infra.

  • Red hot US economy, all pre the full opening of the country & still with a cold 1Q21 winter, plus with latest +$1.9 trn bill

  • Yield curve control (YCC) likely in the pit-stop for a while

  • US exceptionalism & the risks to emerging markets, especially the fragile five 

  • The broader global macro regime that we find ourselves in
