The beautiful magnolia trees are blossoming, and we all know what that means. Bluer skies over London, happy dogs in the parks, and speculation picking up on whether we'll see a repeat of the "sell in May" strategy. Last week ended with a thud after a much weaker-than-expected U.S. April jobs report.
As soon as Friday's figures were out, attention turned to whether the U.S. Federal Reserve still could be on course to hike rates in June -- and the impact this would have on the world economy as funds flood back to the better returns of the U.S.
One man who thinks we're missing the point on the Fed's emerging market impact is David Hauner, Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa (EEMEA) Cross Asset Strategist from Bank of America Merrill Lynch. He says the recent risk-off scenarios raise his conviction of a correction in May. I questioned David on this.
