Institutional Perspective


Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs: Global oil demand hit a record in July and is expected to shift the global oil market from surplus to deficit on the back of OPEC + production cuts and record oil consumption.



SOCIETE GENERALE: The ECB is expected to raise interest rates by 25 basis points, and while it may be too early to provide firm guidance for a further hike in September, the ECB is expected to raise rates one last time in September as upside risks to inflation remain.



【MUFG:BOJ takes stealth action and waits to see what happens】

July 28 - By raising the ceiling for its fixed-rate operations to 1%, the BOJ effectively widened the target range for the 10-year government bond yield, making it easier for the central bank to steer the yield target flexibly, said MUFG senior market economist Naomi Muguruma. In this sense, the central bank acted stealthily. The BOJ will likely wait to see how these measures prove effective for the time being. The BOJ will not determine the strength of wage growth and price trends until at least next spring's labor offensive gives clues on wages.
