9 Grey Swans for 2019

Special Macro Topics

Black swan events are ones that are out of the realms of possibilities at least as envisaged by market participants. For 2018, perhaps the only black swan event was the US-North Korean peace summit in June. As far as I could tell – no one was remotely thinking that was possible at the end of 2017. As for the other outsized moves of 2017, such as the EM FX sell-offs, VIX spike and equity sell-offs, these were grey swans – they were risks that many had highlighted, but turned out to materialise in a much more extreme fashion than expected.
