The double-dip risk and its market implications

- "Market participants face seriously limited visibility on the pace of near-term growth,
particularly for the advanced economies."
- "However, we do not believe that the global economy is about to fall back into a recession."
- "A double-dip – which is not the central scenario we choose – would most likely drive
rates even lower, but bond price upside is fairly limited, particularly at the front end."
- "In the event that the US did become the first to slide back into recession, the USD would be
hard pushed to find any support, at least initially. As the downturn shifts from local to global, it would become clear that there is nowhere to hide from a double-dip scenario. Against this backdrop, the USD would likely regain its status as a safe-haven play."
