Equity and commodity prices may go their own ways

We think equity and commodity prices will generally head in opposite directions over this year and next.

Our view

We expect further rises in global government bond yields and renewed falls in equity prices over the coming year. Government bond yields have typically peaked only shortly before the ends of central bank tightening cycles and we expect most major central banks to raise rates significantly over the remainder of this year. We think the increase in government bond yields, as well as a slowdown in global economic growth, will keep risky assets, such as equities and corporate bonds, under pressure. We also expect the worsening risk environment as well as aggressive tightening by the Fed to result in further US dollar appreciation.
