Tactical positioning for August 2015 based on TAARSS
This month in global equity markets prefer Intl DM, and the US, while staying away from EM. Region wise prefer Europe and North America equities, while staying away from Latin America and Asia Pacific. In US equities we prefer large caps and small caps over mid caps. Sector wise we see support in Consumer Staples and Healthcare. In Intl DM countries prefer Japan and stay away from Canada. Within EM countries, we see weakness across the board especially in China and South East Asian countries such as Indonesia and Thailand. In Fixed Income trends suggest rates over credit; while within Commodities we see general weakness. See Figure 13 and Figure 14 for full allocation details for the month of August and Q3.
