September 18, 2017
Unlike the last few years, this summer was relatively quiet. As markets look ahead to the rest of the year, the key theme will continue to be the major central banks’ tentative progress toward removing monetary accommodation. Investors have so far not priced in this outlook. Since the prospects for growth across all the major countries is better than it has been for some time it remains a puzzle why there hasn't been a greater sell-off in bond markets. [more]

We see upside resulting from capex growth, labour shortages, synchronised recovery  US economy improves from 2.2% to 2.4% growth in 2018 . Volatility in labour market data should not alter Fed’s view of full employment with solid momentum.  Eurozone cyclically strong : Our upgraded forecasts are above consensus at 2.2% in 2017, 2.0% in 2018. Exports & pent-up domestic demand driving growth.  EM: growth rising to 4.7% in 2017, 4.9% in 2018 . China unexpectedly slowed in Aug, but risks balanced in H2  Central banks on exit path :But signaling remains tentative outside the US; tug of war between CB messaging and market pricing is mediated by inflation  Low inflation :US inflation data improved; expect labour market tightness to feed into wages and in turn inflation. USD weakness could be a further boost.  Political risk : Intensification of North Korean crisis since late July but diplomatic resolution remains likely  Regime shift in FX :Rebalancing of investment flows takes over, relative rate expectations lose importance Views on key themes Economic outlookCentral bank watch Key downside risks to our view Notes: H / M / L indicates estimated probability of risk (High, Medium, Low). 4  Sharp rise in rates: taper tantrum-type scenario if inflation rises faster, central banks seen behind curve  China financial instability : property bubble deflates; rising dollar, DM yields put pressure on outflows, RMB  DM growth deceleration: rising policy rates interrupt macro momentum, mild recession  De-globalisation : rise of anti-trade policies exacerbates anaemic global trade and sharply slows growth M L Steady global growth, macro views shift in favor of Europe.

Rather than maintaining a commitment to a JPY amount of QE purchases, the BoJstarted targeting a 10-year yield around zero. The policy has a countercyclical nature: the more inflation normalises and yields rise, the more bonds the BoJwill purchase, thus easing when not needed; the opposite also holds true. Research Deutsche Bank The House View –18 September 2017 thehouseview@list.db.comhttp://houseview.research.db.com 18 As Brexittalks slowly continue, the key question remains what, if any, transition deal is struck to avoid a negative "crash Brexit"  Acknowledgment across the board that a transition period has to be agreed to avoid exit without deal − Time is too tight to have negotiated future relation by Brexitday in Mar-2019  Limited progress to date, solely focused on exit issues (e.g., divorce bill, status of UK / EU citizens, etc.)  Conflicting messages from UK government as to what kind of end-deal is being sought –has to be addressed for transition to be agreed − Smooth transition has to resolve tension between globalist Brexiteersand those that wish to stay closer to the EU single market  Current UK political setup not conducive to the necessary domestic compromises  UK political and / or economic crisis necessary to drive UK into EEA-style + customs transitional agreement  Minority government starves PM May from much needed flexibility to carry out negotiations − Eurosceptic MPs can easily hold government hostage  No signs of cracks on EU-27 front means UK’s negotiating position is weak − If anything, across Europe the EU is more in favour than at time of Brexitvote in Jun-2016 The big picture Key issues Economic argument  Remain as close to single market as possible ‒Goods trade ‒Services trade  Accept EU’s playing rules Brexitrationale  Trade deals with rest of world  Control of immigration  Supremacy of UK law vis-à-vis European Court of Justice vs. Research Deutsche Bank The House View –18 September 2017 thehouseview@list.db.comhttp://houseview.research.db.com 19 The end-September German election is likely to be a non-event for markets, but it will clear the way for EU integration talks -0.2 0.0 0.2 0.4 0.6 0.8 1.0 1.2 1.4 1.6 1996 - 2000 2001 - 2005 2006 - 2010 2011 - 2015 2016 - 2020 2021 - 2025 Total factor productivity Capital services Hours worked Potential growth in % Source: Deutsche Bundesbank, Deutsche Bank Research Declining trend economic growth on lower hours worked % 010203040 CDU/CSU SPD Left AfD FDP Greens Others Source: Wahlrecht.de, Deutsche Bank Research * Average of major surveys (Allensbach, InfratestDimap, Forsa, ForschungsgrupperWahlen, TNS Emnid) Pro-European parties garner greatest support Surveys published end-July 2017, %  Chancellor Merkel widely seen as securing a fourth term against centre-left SPD’s Martin Schulz  Uncertainty remains over what the governing coalition will look like − Several options, given how different parties poll − “Colour” of coalition will drive policy trade-offs  New government to face important domestic issues − Erosion of economic drivers –underlying trend growth expected to weaken over next decade  Multiple issues also on the international front − Migration flows − Brexitand future EU-UK relations − European integration  This last area is key --much has changed in the last year and EU leaders are less reticent about calling for more Europe − Macron election in France, underperformance of euroscepticparties across Europe − With German election behind, it could be the time for moving into more active integration talks Research Deutsche Bank The House View –18 September 2017 thehouseview@list.db.comhttp://houseview.research.db.com 20 Summary of market views Asset classViewRationale Equities  US: constructive  S&P500 long overdue a pullback, but positive economic backdrop should dominate any correction. Maintain 2,600 year-end target  Europe: risk of tactical downside  Easing of macro momentum consistent with a correction to European equities in coming months  European equities are however at bottom of range vs. US Rates  Strategically bearish  Market still pricing low inflation, little further tightening (“Fed is nearly done”)  Latest developments (e.g., US inflation) comfort our bearish positioning FX  Dollar risks are asymmetric  Market refuses to price in any additional rate hikes from the Fed. Asymmetric (downside) risk to the dollar as Fed Funds rate approaches neutral.  Euro upside on investment flows  Relative ECB/Fed monetary policy expectations no longer the prime mover  Euro responding to investment flow imbalances –rebalancing underway of the structural underweight of European assets built post-crisis Credit  Constructive Europe  IG spreads likely to move sideways in the short term, with moderate widening bias through the end of the year. Wehold a bias for European HY credit spreads widening further in the short term, in the face of significant issuance. EM  Staying positive  Strong YTD performance to give way to reduced and more carry-dependent returns in the remainder of the year.EM macro still stronger than DM Com- modities  Oil prices stabilising  Temporary dislocations resultingfrom Hurricane Harvey  Threat of oversupply persists in 2018, requiring OPEC to extend its restraint Research Deutsche Bank The House View –18 September 2017 thehouseview@list.db.comhttp://houseview.research.db.com DB forecasts Source: Deutsche Bank Research 21 ASIA:China, HK, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam DM:Australia, Canada, Denmark , Eurozone, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, US *CPI (%) forecasts are period averages CEEMEA: Czech Rep., Israel, Egypt,Hungary, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Poland, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, UAEand Ukraine LATAM:Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela GDP growth (%)201520162017F2018FCPI inflation, YoY * (%)201520162017F2018F Global3.
