CPI Focus

“Successful investing is anticipating the anticipations of others.” – John Maynard Keynes
Since we keep on getting questions about the daily webinar sessions and to mix it up a little, today’s note is slightly different. Pretty much all of the latest charts we have posted on the blog or on twitter and discussed in the weekly outlook video are still in play so we are just going to highlight some of the things we are going to be discussing in today’s session:
  • EEM is on the run but USDJPY doesn’t seem to care just yet and we will probably not have a clearer picture unless we see a a break and hold outside of the 114.50/112.00 range. We still believe that we have some unresolved business at the 112.00 pivotal mark.
  • Equities hovering at highs, waiting for CPI numbers as bonds sold off a bit and USD tries to stabilize around the November low. It’s going to be down to the number to see which way we go but we believe there will be a lot of positioning post release, probably more so on a numbers miss. Could be a very interesting opportunity to get in on the next rotations.
  • A lot of wheeling and dealing on GBP pairs but where to get the biggest bang for your buck if you are trying to position for the next leg of the move? We suspect that it’s not on cable.
  • Financials, Retail, Tech… is there a tell on a possible market top out there?
  • What’s the deal with Silver and Gold and what other metals offer a far more interesting and less volatile asymmetric risk/reward profile.
  • What’s going on with the commodity currencies and why is our ranking in terms of interesting trade location > Kiwi, Loonie and Aussie.
Wishing everyone a great day ahead and an every better weekend! TGIF 😉
