  • Commodities/natural resources run the show, up 6.1% amid a global oil and gas price boom, OPEC cuts and the Russo-Ukrainian war
  • Latin America rides high on energy and commodities prices, after languishing for a decade
  • Europe bounces as markets hope there’s an end in sight for Fed rate rises around the corner
  • European and American small caps also bounce on prospective slows in Fed hikes

What’s Not

  • China has crumbled off the back of the CCP’s unwavering zero Covid policy, trade tensions and negative rhetoric around Chinese business
  • Broader Asian indices and emerging markets have been unsurprisingly dragged down by China
  • US Treasury bonds also continue to struggle, after the Fed announced its fourth consecutive 0.75% hike on interest rates earlier this week
