Pretty much in-line with the standard view on Wall Street these days – buys stocks, sell bonds, buy commodities, etc. (via JPM):

  • Economics

Our Japan growth forecast is raised, but the UK is cut. Our global growth forecast for 2011 is unchanged at 3.5%.

  • Asset allocation

Our top performers for 2011 should be equities and high-yield. But do include commodities on tight supplies and their good diversification value against certain inflation and political risks.

  • Fixed Income

We go short duration in Treasuries, with yields near the bottom of their recent range.

  • Equities

Rising geopolitical and inflation risks favours an OW in Commodity sectors and an UW in EM equities.

  • Credit

Overweight high quality CMBS as property prices recover and vacancy rates decline

  • FX

Be long EUR/USD, and short GBP versus EUR, SEK and CAD.

  • Commodities

OPEC likely to increase production gradually from here, but we still expect Brent to break well over $100 this year.
