“When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” – Paulo Coelho
All about the central bank bonanza in terms of even risk today. Heads up for comments out of Sintra and therefore the chart of the day has to be DXY. We already discussed this in detail in our Latest Weekly Outlook.
As far as we are concerned, equities are just buying time. We still maintain that markets are extremely complacent here at highs and that internals are not pointing to healthy action. This does not mean they can’t go higher but it looks like we are slowly setting up for another ugly event (continue to keep an eye on Asia).
Don’t forget that the OPEC circus is still on-going and that the wires will be buzzing with developments out of Vienna…

As always, there is no substitute for real-time/live action; if you are interested in attending a daily morning call into NY with a more detailed live discussion on all the charts and ideas we highlight/review in the outlook video and here on the blog, you should check out our Daily Webinar Group.
Wishing you a great day ahead.

Today we will discuss liquidity, complacency and what this mean for the markets, along with the current broader ranges we are trading in. Once again, the Shanghai Composite is not looking pretty and has now gone full ‘knife through butter’ at that magical 3000 mark.

“Every morning in Africa a gazelle wakes up and knows that it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up and knows that it must run faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are the lion or the gazelle, when the sun comes up, you better start running.” – African Proverb
The main even risk for today and into the weekend remains on Trump and the apparent announcement of $50 billion in tariffs on China. Talk is of immediate retaliation too. If announced post market close, then we could be in for a sporty Sunday open. Don’t forget that we’ll also likely start to get bombarded with headline flow from the Central Bankers Sintra Meetting.
Today we will focus on what yesterday’s DXY move means in terms of the bigger picture: emerging markets, commodities, Asian focus and more…

“Reality is that which when you stop believing in it, it doesn’t go away.” – Philip K. Dick
As we sit through this low liquidity chop waiting for the Central Banks to enlighten us on their next course of action, focus will remain on where we close not on where we trade intra-week. Don’t make it harder than it should be by trying to read too much into the drive-by ramps and dumps.
No change to what we discussed in the latest Weekly Outlook Video. Remember that all-in-all, the ECB has a bigger chance of catching markets off-sides. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the wires for Oil headlines as we head into a key OPEC meeting next week. We’ll be discussing this in more and more detail as we get closer to the date.
We’re not huge fans of single-stock names but one can’t help but wonder if, especially after yesterday’s shenanigans, reality is catching up with Tesla and if we have just seen a significant swing high print.

“Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave when we’re waiting.” – Joyce Meyer
No big change to what we discussed in the latest Weekly Outlook Video. It’s just a waiting game into FOMC / ECB and BOJ. As frustrating as it may be, we just have to be patient and understand that opportunity will likely be staked towards the back end of the week and our focus should be on the where we close the week.
