May review: stuck

May was not a great month for financial markets, although better than April. Unfortunately, we don’t foresee much relief coming from either inflation or economic growth. Inflation in the eurozone is increasing and becoming more broad based, while it remains high in the US. Central banks are coming under increased pressure to raise rates, which increases recession risks.
