“I like putting all my eggs in one basket and then watching the basket very carefully.” – Stanley Druckenmiller

Keep an eye on our Twitter Feed today for an update on some of the Key Charts we have been discussing for a while now.

Eyes on the Russell

“There is no place for arrogance or complacency in racing because you are up there one minute and on your backside the next.” – Tony McCoy

Here are some of the charts we will be discussing and reviewing in today’s webinar. Needless to say, as already discussed, the key one to watch is the Russell. We remain at a key inflection point with a lot of complacency and headline risk.

POST SOTU


“Of course, if a man is both wise and lucky, he will not make the same mistake twice. But he will make any one of the ten thousand brothers and cousins of the original. The Mistake family is so large that there is always one of them around when you want to see what you can do in the fool-play line.” – Jesse Livermore

What we would be keeping an eye on today:
(i) Indices around the pivotal levels: hold below increases chance of correction and offer interesting asymmetric opportunities
(ii) Crude closing below the pivotal 55 mark and holding heavy
(iii) USDJPY still not buying the magic carpet ride ramp in equities and still holding heavy
(iV) commodity currencies still heavy and pointing to more risk off
(V) bonds still holding the underlying bid
> all in all similar, tells across the board.

Chart of the Day

“When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.” – Jacob A. Riis

The aggressive squeeze continues in High Yield and it’s going to be key to see how this resolves for the next structural move across the board. As we have been discussing, our outlook on Junk and the broader markets has not changed in terms of a bigger picture view.
Once again, it’s all about the FED. The turn this has taken is simply > Hawkish FED = Pressure ON / Dovish FED = Pressure OFF. We will discuss this today and how it’s important to both trade the hand we are given but also understand the limitations of this simplistic view and how we think this is likely to resolve. The Quick-Take is: nimble and tactical on intraday opportunities but use the broader action to position swings.

Chart Update

“The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom.” – Osho

Today we will be reviewing 3 key charts we have been focusing on this week:
ES > all about the 2600 mark from a day and week close basis now as we wait for Powell to speak today. Don’t forget the Buyback Blackout Period and q4 Earning…
USDCNH > trade for the move back to the opposite side of the range is done and now it becomes very interesting. Remember that this is going to be key for a lot action across the board.
DXY > Moving along nicely for now. Focus will be on how we trade through Powell and how we settle this week but no change in outlook. Our Euro and Yen swings remain in play.

Wednesday Update

“But the real object of the Game is not the money, it is the playing of the Game itself. For the true players, you could take all the trophies away and substitute plastic beads or whale’s teeth; as long as there is a way to keep score, they will play.” – George Goodman (aka Adam Smith), “The Money Game”
