A combination of our 'Investment Clock' moving further into 'Overheat' and positive price momentum mean that we have added to commodities at the margin, funded out of bonds. Nevertheless, we remain cautious on commodities as the Chinese economy is likely to slow, and recent US dollar weakness could reverse, in line with interest rate differentials.
We slightly increased the position in high yield bonds. We will look to maintain our overweight position in stocks; with investor sentiment so positive, we do not rule out a short-term set-back and we would use such an opportunity to increase our equity allocation.
