Analysts at JP Morgan highlight seven key risks, in its latest outlook report, as we head towards the second half of this year.  

7 key risks:

  1. “Trade conflicts become an economically-significant trade war;  
  2. US politics becomes even more complicated (Mueller investigation, mid-term elections);  
  3. US core PCE inflation overshoots 2%, triggering faster Fed tightening;
  4. OPEC-Russia relaxation of oil accord becomes disorderly;  
  5. Italy over eases fiscal policy and courts a funding crisis;  
  6. US’s strike-first-negotiate-later approach to diplomacy brings military entanglement in South China Sea, Korea, Iran or Syria;  
  7. Liquidity risk turns a minor macro event into a major financial one.”
