Spy Vs Govt
16.06.2022
SPY vs. GOVT
Model confidence for SPY vs. GOVT is 65%. The relationship between US equities & bonds is back in a clearly defined macro regime.

On Qi, SPY is 1.9 sigma (7.2%) cheap to GOVT relative to prevailing macro conditions. This is a historically significant level – we have only been in regime & this cheap to model once before going back to 2009.

That Fair Value Gap has arisen because recently equities have significantly underperformed Treasuries, but macro-warranted model value has moved sideways.
Spy Vs Govt
Qi has not been constructive on US equities of late. Stripping things back to basics, macro fair value has been in a clear downtrend throughout 2022.

S&P500 model value bounced yesterday, rising 2.6%. The first meaningful improvement in macro conditions in June.

As per “Zone defence” the biggest reason for that was the ~25bp narrowing in BTP-Bund spreads yesterday. Domestic US equity managers need to keep an eye on the fall-out from ECB policy, not just the Fed.

Given the strong drop in SPX macro model value in recent months, prudence suggests we need to see a material trend reversal higher before trying to call a bottom in this US equity bear market.

That said, as we move towards month & quarter end, traditional market commentary will increasingly focus on quarterly re-balancing flows & the extent to which they’ll be equity supportive.

Early reports suggest the flows could be substantial; Qi suggests that, relative to GOVT, SPY is cheap. Tactical asset allocators take note.
