Waiting for Trump

“It’s not because things are difficult that we dare not venture. It’s because we dare not venture that they are difficult.”
– Seneca
As we have already discussed, short-term, it’s all about this address to the joint session of Congress. Focus will be of positioning and squaring into and post the session taking place during the o/n session. Could be sporty to say the least…
On the currency side, apart from the the general DXY dynamics, we remain focused on GBP and BREXIT implications.

The market will have to start to rethink the relentlessness of this rally as Conway and Mnuchin deliver more realistic commentary on the pace of reforms. As we have been discussing into 2017, bonds and gold were our preferred play to focus on this inevitable development. Nothing has to happen but we remain focused on  the Russell and on the NASDAQ for signs of the first cracks.

All eyes will be on the FOMC meeting minutes. We keep on being reminded that markets can remain irrational longer than one can remain solvent but that’s doesn’t mean irrational forever. Market forces will do what they have to do but don’t be surprised when the change of pace will come. Remember that it’s not a question of ‘if’ but simply a question of ‘when’.
