This week has seen an across the board ‘risk on’ rally as equity markets globally have risen, although there has been some softening in the UK and European markets this morning following the horrific events in Nice last night. The increased level of volatility that has followed the UK’s Brexit vote translated into large price movements in a number of assets classes, with many being the largest movements for many months or even years.

The impact of Brexit continues to dominate markets this week, with prices recalibrating as the impact on the global economy is reassessed. For the moment, markets are inclined to believe that the Brexit vote will impact the UK predominantly, with some negative consequences for Europe. The further you are away from the epicentre, the less the impact is perceived to be, with global growth now expected to be only mildly impacted

All eyes have been focused on the aftermath of the UK’s Brexit vote this week as investors have scrambled to try and understand the potential implications for the global economy. We commented in last week’s note how the week had been broken into 2 parts: the 4 days running up to the referendum and the 1 day after it. Somewhat surprisingly given the result, this week has proven to be the mirror opposite.

They say a week is a long time in politics, over the past seven days an hour has felt like a week and some days have seen more activity than an entire political term. So now the dust has settled after last week’s Brexit result and the markets are starting to show signs of recovery, we thought it was worthwhile recapping how the outcome has affected the political landscape in the UK and beyond.

It has been a busy week for markets and, whilst the issues driving them are the same ones that we have noted in recent weeks, some market movements have been sizeable. However, the shocking and tragic events in Birstall yesterday have put everything into stark perspective and are a reminder that there are more important issues in life than asset prices and currency movements.

With less than one month to go and both sides ramping up their campaigns, there are valid (and tenuous) arguments being put forward by both camps in preparation for what could be the biggest shakeup of UK and EU politics, in decades.

Performance across equity markets was mixed as investors repriced the potential for a June/July US interest rate hike following the release of the April US Federal Reserve minutes. The minutes suggested that a rate hike is still very much a possibility should employment and inflation data continue to strengthen. Futures markets repriced the probability of such a move from 4% at the beginning of the week to a 30% chance by the end, and a 51% chance of a move by the July meeting, post the UK’s EU referendum.
