14 October 2019

With the Pacific G10 Macro Rates Team

G10 Macro Rates Monthly View
With Shayne Dunlap, Co-Portfolio Manager

Charge of the Heavy Brigade, the Central Bank's are coming (again!)
After the August market flush, September started with a reversal in the direction of yields, and profit taking prior to the mid-month Federal Reserve meeting. A weaker jobs number in the non-farm payroll (NFP) report was offset by the strong wage growth, personal spending and robust housing starts.
