Fund Managers' Current Asset Allocation - January

baml cashSummary: Global equities are nearly 25% higher than in February 2016. A tailwind for this rally has been the bearish positioning of investors, with fund managers persistently shunning equities in exchange for holding cash.

That's no longer the case.  Fund managers became bullish again in December, and remain so now. Optimism towards the economy has surged to a 2-year high. Cash remains in favor (a positive) but global equity allocations are now back above neutral for the first time in a year. Another push higher and excessive bullish sentiment will become a headwind. The main exception to this is emerging markets, which are now out of favor and a contrarian long.

Findings in the bond market are of greatest interest. Fund managers' allocations to global bonds are now at prior capitulation lows. Moreover, inflation and growth expectations have jumped to the highest level since early 2011, after which US 10-year yields fell in half over the next several months.

The dollar is now considered the most overvalued in the past 10 years. Under similar conditions, the dollar has fallen in value in the month(s) ahead.

Major Markets at Turning Points

Posted by Gary Christenson - The Deviant Investor

Bonds have risen in a 35 year bull market. That bull market looks tired and probably peaked in July of 2016.

The U.S. Dollar Index recently hit 14 year highs. Has the dollar finally peaked? Has it turned downward since January 3, 2017?

Stocks have been rising since the 2009 crash lows. Rounded to the nearest point, the Dow hit 20,000. Was that enough to make a final top before a major turn downward?

Gold made an important low over a year ago but we continually hear chatter about gold falling below $1,000, perhaps to $700 or even $350. I believe it has turned upward and the chatter will dissipate.

Let’s speculate about turning points in these important markets.

T-Bonds:

The global bond market is perhaps $100 trillion. Derivatives tied to interest rates are perhaps another $500 trillion. Yes, these are big numbers and interest rates affect practically everything – student loan debt, consumer spending, sovereign nation borrowing, housing sales, mortgage rates, credit card rates, bank profitability, availability of credit and more.

The global bond market is the largest financial bubble in history. A crash would be important …
