Manufacturing PMI’s speak a clear language for the developed economies as they point towards a significant slowdown in the manufacturing sector.

The interesting point is that both equity markets and even more surprisingly bond markets appear to ignore this. If the PMI’s are right, long term bond yields will have to come down from current levels. We position our client portfolios accordingly.
