“You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes a day, unless you are too busy. Then you should sit for an hour.” – Zen Proverb

As we wait for more clarity from KSA following the weekend attack and we head into a very busy CB week; it’s time to focus on our bigger picture outlook and strategic seasonal plays from here into year end.
Our Key Chart for the week and one of the main things we will be discussing in the Video Updates and the Webinars is this SPX chart overlayed with Powell FOMC Press conferences and Quarterly Expiration Cycles. We can’t stress how important this is…
Key Topics for us this week will be: (i) the situation in KSA (ii) Trump and the Mini-Deal (iii) RTY vs. FANG (iv) Bond seasonals (v)Powell and a Hawkish Cut (vi) Brexit developments and last but not least (vii) Draghi and a possible regime shift in Europe.
We are at Key Inflection points pretty much across the board and as expected, this September 12th to 20th time window isn’t disappointing us. So far, we are in-line with what we were expecting and all the previously mentioned topics offer extremely interesting opportunities.

As we have been reviewing and discussing for some time now, no change in our bigger picture outlook as we head into ECB. we would continue to keep a very close eye on action in RTY and FANG as these are key reference charts for our longer terms plays.
This week we will continue to focus on the current context along with the risk of ECB and FOMC under delivering on the lofty expectations the markets have placed on them. For reference, see recent action on AUD and CAD following recent RBA and BOC meetings. A lot of opportunity from here, through FOMC and into OpEx…
For some context, hereafter are the latest updated figures for the BTOP50 Index as well as some of the CTA and Hedge Fund Indices:

Chart of the Week

“I’m not hunting a jaguar that’s sitting in the tree because there are not a lot of easy ways to rustle it out of the tree. A lot of bad things can happen: The jaguar can attack me and I can fall down and get hurt. But if someone shoots the Jaguar out of the tree and the thing hits the ground and is injured I will go after it.” – Marc Cohodes

Key week for the EURO as we wait to see if the market is pricing unrealistic expectations. Remember to look back at recent action in AUD and CAD following the RBA and BOC where the market was getting a bit carried away looking for surprise cuts… once again, all about the Central Banks as we also wait for BOJ/SNB/BOE/FOMC next week too. We should have plenty of opportunity as we trading in OPEX.
