The views of market participants

Hideyuki Ishiguro Senior Strategist at Nomura Asset Management

  • Judging by the movement of risk assets, the US economy will slow further, and weaker demand will lead to a slower pace of US interest rate hikes. Domestic and foreign stock markets will confirm once economic indicators and corporate earnings have been confirmed
  • In the United States, stock prices have fallen due to increases in interest rates, which have had a negative impact on wealth on household budgets.
  • Corporate earnings in the US are likely to exceed levels already revised down by analysts, and Japanese earnings are expected to be firm, supported by the weaker yen. Stock prices are Japan and the United States are in a low price range, so there is a possibility of a reassessment and purchase from a performance perspective.
