Bank of America: Time to Hold More Cash & Gold
Image

Within a note sent this morning, Bank of America Merrill Lynch has a warning for investors:

“Investors remain trapped in “The Twilight Zone”, the transition period between the end of QE and the first rate hike by the Fed, the start of policy normalization…until (a) the US economy is unambiguously robust enough to allow the Fed to hike and (b) the Fed’s exit from zero rates is seen not to cause either a market or macro shock (as it infamously did in 1936-7), the investment backdrop will likely continue to be cursed by mediocre returns, volatile trading rotation, correlation breakdowns and flash crashes. For this reason we continue to advocate higher than normal levels of cash, adding gold and owning volatility in mid 2015. Given extremities of liquidity, profits, technological disruption, regulation, income inequality…potential for a cleansing drop in asset prices cannot be dismissed. Most likely catalysts: Consumer, Rates, A-shares, Speculation, High Yield.”

The note also highlights two interesting disconnects in the markets:

1.  Investors say they are optimistic, but there is a high level of cash on the sidelines
2. U.S. stock prices are at record highs, but equity funds are seeing outflows
