QCAM Insight

The euro remains in check – Euro bulls are cheered by a possible Fed rate cut, but we don’t think that would solve all the euro’s problems. Growing political uncertainties and an intensi­fying conflict with Italy could add to the euro’s troubles. Our observation of the development of euro.

The macro perspective

Strong start to the year may not last – The Swiss economy got off to a strong start this year but we think it’s unlikely to maintain this brisk pace for long. It managed to enjoy solid growth until recently, defying the global downtrend, but the latest sentiment data signals a distinct weakening. Our conclusion of the turnaround.
