Rory Green's Top Market Calls

We said: In April, we forecast economic outperformance of Korea and Taiwan based on; covid containment, electronic component-heavy exports and proximity to China and its recovery. We doubled down on our projections for East Asian economic strength in July. Ahead of the US election, we added a further structural driver to Korean and Taiwanese growth – the tech war – which promises to boost demand for Asian high end electronic components.  (Call was also reiterated in this blog post during Korea’s big second wave outbreak which caused markets to temporarily sell-off, as forecast)
Outcome: We went overweight Korean and Taiwanese equities in May and have been long the KRW in Macro Strategy since June. MSCI TW is the top performing index globally with MSCI KR just behind. As of 26/10/20 Our KRW trade is up 5%.
