Global Macro Overview
Last week was very quiet within G10 markets after the unexpected volatility experienced over the first week of 2020, driven by the uncertainty in the Middle East. The S&P 500 finished the week at new highs, rates and currencies were mostly range-bound, as a result volatility continued to slide lower. US and China signed the Phase 1 deal, without any surprises. Data continued to point at stabilisation and recovery in Asia-Pacific economies, which should be beneficial for the countries whose economies are reliant on trade (Europe and Japan).

Equity markets ended the year in a jubilant mood as the US and China agreed phase one of a trade deal, signalling the first de-escalation of a trade war that started almost two years ago.
