Equities to remain under pressure
Investors should exercise caution with equities, but also be aware of the potential for a bear market rally as in early Q3.
Highly selective in fixed income
Caution is warranted for high-yield bonds and other areas of corporate credit, while securitized sectors offer more attractive opportunities.
Commodities could benefit from energy rally
In energy markets, inventory levels of distillates remain tight and production may be constrained in the near term.
