Rotation, not risk-off

In response to client questions, we update some indicators we discussed back in January to address the debate about whether recent market action is indicative of a defensive shift (potential equity market top) or a rotation within equities that maintains a “risk-on” environment. Our current view, as it was in January, is that risk appetite remains broadly intact and the weight of the evidence suggests that we are seeing a rotation, not a “risk-off” environment.
