Rattle and Hum

Redefining the Borders of 'Lower for Longer'


In the second half of 2017, we expect 10-year Treasury yields to remain in a 2% to 2.5% range, consistent with the eight-year "lower for longer" theme in the bond market.

Broader Growth, Narrower Risks


Global stocks may continue to rise in the second half of the year supported by broad global economic growth and receding political risks.
