Equity markets have remained buoyant in recent weeks: the S&P 500 is trending towards an all-time high, the European equity market (STOXX 600) is close to last year’s peak and the performances of emerging markets have also been very strong. Renewed hopes of a trade deal between China and the US drove the last leg of the upside, following the previous boost from the recent central banks’ dovish turns. Credit markets have also been significant beneficiaries of the positive sentiment, with spreads tightening massively in Europe and stable at tight levels in the US in recent weeks.
