Bond mar­ket crash is not the top­most con­cern of global in­vestors. Ac­cord­ing to a survey by London-based in­vest­ment bank Natixis, the on­go­ing trade war has re­placed geopo­lit­i­cal risk as the big­gest con­cern for global fi­nan­cial mar­ket in­vestors

■ Among other con­cerns, China’s risk per­cep­tion de­creased and Ital­ian risk gained mo­men­tum. Un­cer­tainty over oil re­mains sub­dued, while US re­ces­sion and ECB ta­per­ing fall out­side global in­vestors’ radar. Natixis said an es­ca­la­tion of the trade con­flict to a trade war could re­sult in a global slow­down

■ Nigam Arora of Arora Re­port said in the last 64 years, the US has seen 9 re­ces­sions and each time US in­ter­est rates were ei­ther the high­est or ris­ing fast. The sce­nario now is no dif­fer­ent, with the US rais­ing rates and pro­ject­ing a sharper rise ahead CLSA Greed & Fear’s con­tra view: Re­vived hopes of Goldilocks
