Ed Wicks, global head of trading at Legal & General Investment Management, discusses how his trading desk will be preparing for the week ahead amid the expected heavy Gilt supply (UK government bonds) and the upcoming MSCI index rebalancing.

Wicks looks at how markets have had to adjust their outlooks on the global rate cycle and when we can expect central banks, such as the Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, and the Bank of England, to begin cutting interest rates this year.

In this episode, the global head of trading also unpacks why and how he’s monitoring money market flows; how he’s preparing for major upcoming liquidity events in May, and tells us why trading desks should be paying close attention to activity in mergers and acquisitions.
