Q2 2018 Market Outlook. So far, three of the four main themes for 2018 that we shared in January’s report – more aggressive Fed rate hikes, mean reversion of low vol, and geopolitical risks from Trump’s foreign and trade policy – appear on track and our Q1 positioning was accretive. On our fourth theme, U.S. dollar strengthening, we remain confident, although it did not materialize during Q1. This quarter’s report contains our current country and sector positions in detail, as well as a special section on FM, “Frontier Outlook & Index Updates“
