Phillip Singapore Monthly – August 2018: Global growth has peaked

Analyst: Paul Chew

– Macro data point to a peak in global growth rates. Almost all PMIs worldwide
are decelerating.

– The big macro event has been the spiralling mess in Turkey.

– In summary, the three large macro trends are a strengthening US$, sliding
commodity prices and rising interest rates. All negative for emerging markets.

– The recent bullish break above the immediate downtrend line with oversold
RSI on 21/08/18 suggests a reversal higher next.

– Expect price to rebound higher next to test the 10.02 resistance area followed
by 10.27.
