Key quotes

“Extraordinary levels of liquidity are the proximate driver, and conceptually, there are arguably as many reasons to be bullish (we’ve beaten COVID-19, commodity prices are holding up, risk appetite has rebounded quickly) as there are to be bearish (tourism was a big piece of the economy and it’s now gone, our yields are lower than the US and Australia’s, negative rates may be coming, risk sentiment could sour at any time).”
