UST sell-off misaligned with fundamentals

More healthy US economic data expected: The US will release its advance estimate of Q3 GDP growth today. We now expect a stronger reading of 3.0% q/q saar, from our previous 2.5% estimate. The main difference is that we now see a stronger contribution from net trade, while we still expect consumption to rise firmly by 2.5%. The ECI measure is likely to show decent quarterly wage increases (0.6% q/q; 2.3% y/y). Nevertheless, we think current yield levels in the US are not consistent with the underlying data trend.

In the UK we expect the BoE to cut in February. We now expect 2% growth in 2016 and 0.5% in 2017. Even though the economy slowed in Q3 compared with the pre-Brexit period, growth nonetheless surprised to the upside, posting +0.5% q/q, well ahead of our and market expectations. We maintain our long held view that the economy will stall during the course of next year.
