“But markets remain nonplussed, except in a few corners of US fixed income and FX”.

“This complacency is no different than the historical norm given near-universal faith that compromise must emerge because the alternative would be so much worse”.

“We highlight a few facts and some tentative lessons learned around these increasingly frequent and contentious US fiscal debates”.

“None of the conclusions change the baseline view or trades: EUR/USD has been over-shooting; carry should only be earned in only a few corners; USD is worth owning on a few crosses (GBP) on expectation of resolution”.
