Management report - 4th Quarter 2018

US Treasuries posted positive performance in the fourth quarter of 2018. The JPMorgan index for this market was up +2.41%. The US 10-year yield ended the quarter at 2.68%, 37 basis points lower than at the end of the previous quarter. Falling oil prices and the drop in inflation drove bond yields down. At 30 November, the consumer price index was only up by 2.2% compared to 2.5% the previous month. The price per barrel of Brent crude was down 35% over the quarter, closing at 53.8 dollars. The ISM Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index also posted a significant decline over the period, from 59.8 to 54.1. Nevertheless, on 19 December, the Federal Reserve raised its headline interest rate for the fourth time in the year to 2.5%. In view of the loss of acceleration in the US economy, the main question is whether US interest rates will continue to rise. According to the Federal Reserve, interest rates will continue to be gradually increased. However, the number of potential rises remains uncertain given the markets' recent correction. Another concern is that uncertainty over the trade negotiations will also have an impact on the health of the US economy in the coming months.
