Topic of the week: Commodities and megatrends
- The rebound in commodities since the Covid crisis is partly cyclical, but there are also a number of “megatrends” that have changed the game.
- Green energy, China’s place, US energy independence, investments in renewable energy, changes in eating habits are all factors.
- While all of these commodities appear to have reacted identically since March 2020, the underlying fundamental trends are very different.
Market review: Biden : A Reagan moment for Biden?
- Fed: monetary status quo
- Biden presents the American Families Plan worth $1.8T
- Yields up, credit spreads broadly stable
- Upbeat quarterly earnings season
USA : Personal income
quarterly % change
The increase in personal income in the United States is impressive, 21.1% over the first quarter compared to the previous one.
This figure is of course linked to the Biden recovery plan and shows that the American recovery effort is very important. Private consumption growth over the first quarter was 10.7% on an annualized quarterly basis. The increase in income suggests even stronger consumption figures for the second quarter.
