Toby and Maya highlight that how to identify the future political and monetary policy events that will dominate market discussions is critical. It is our job to filter out noise and determine what signposts, events or issues are truly meaningful in terms of their potential impact on markets.

This feels particularly pertinent at present, when the broad global macroeconomic environment can be characterised as ‘Goldilocks like', with decent global growth and only gentle rises in inflation. The global economic setting is not sufficiently hot to warrant aggressive monetary tightening, nor so cold as to create fears of economic recession. It is important to know what might upset this.
