Key Quotes

“”The world GDP growth forecast is down to 3.1% for 2015 the lowest since 2009, when output was flat. The 1997-2006 pre-GFC average was 4%. But, it's in the IMF's DNA to look for things to improve and while the downward revisions and warnings of trouble will make headlines, if world growth picks up from 3.1% this year to 3.6% in 2016, while EM growth picks up from, 4% to 4.5%, forward-looking markets (especially FX) should focus on the direction of travel rather than the speed of growth.”

“And the logic in the short-term, may just be that even if 2016 is disappointing, the conditions for a Q4 rally in EM, and in risk assets overall, are in place.”
