Mark Yusko

When the spread is narrow it has paid to overweight towards bonds and underweight stocks. The current spread is the narrowest since 2000 & 2007. Is history a good guide here? Or has the Fed goofed this spread idea up for good?

World Has Changed, Investment Model Must Change

The structural backdrop for a Global Tactical Allocation Strategy

  • Developed economy governments are insolvent
  • The process of deleveraging and global rebalancing is underway
  • Outsized dislocations from “non-economic” policy actions
  • The loss of central bank independence with likely unintended consequences
  • Ongoing battle between deflation and reflationary forces
  • Shorter and more volatile economy cycles that are globally synchronized
  • Drop of confidence in policymakers, institutions and the “system” at large
  • Increased risk of geopolitical tensions and social conflict
  • Market prices only reflect fair value by accident and in passing
