2Q 2019 Outlook & Review

2Q 2019 Outlook & Review
QMA   PDF Opens in a new window

After ending 2018 with weaker momentum, QMA believes the global economy may slow further in early 2019, given lingering trade uncertainty, a continued slowdown in China, and the lagged impact of tighter financial conditions in late 2018. However, financial conditions turned sharply from headwind to tailwind in the first quarter. Developed market central banks turned dovish in Q1, China continued to provide stimulus, and trade tensions eased — as President Trump delayed planned increases in tariffs and telegraphed his desire for a deal that could remove tariffs that have been recently implemented.
