Rattle and Hum

U.S. ECONOMY & STOCK MARKET

Redefining the Borders of 'Lower for Longer'

FIXED INCOME

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 MARKETS & ECONOMY

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