    FXStreet (Guatemala) - Analysts at TD Securities explained that this is starting to feel familiar. It’s only January, and already a significant downturn in oil and diffuse EM risks are weighing on 2016 forecasts—particularly inflation. "But this year, it won’t be central banks to the rescue. At best, we get a gradual tilt toward easing after the Fed for the first time hiked into a global slowdown."

    Key Quotes:

    "G10 rates

    Short front end Treasuries and long US 10yr TIPS BEs. For EZ expect ERZ6/ERZ7 spread to tighten as the mkt adjust to the ‘lower for longer’ theme, neutral long end.

    G10 FX

    USD moderately firm but outright bullish JPY. Idiosyncrasies leave commodity currencies vulnerable. GBP pressures to remain, two-way risk for EUR.

    EMFX & Rates

    Focus on China, with CNY depreciation towards free float supporting vol until Q2/Q3, when EM assets may start decoupling from the trend.

    What Has Changed

    S&P downgrade of Poland from A-(positive) to BBB+(negative). Fitch and Moodys may follow on back of bank tax and forced FX mortgage conversions.BCB did not hike at Jan meeting.

    What We’ve Changed
