Not a lot has changed as we move into the new week of trade. The key themes remain:
– Have equities bottomed and has the year-end rally started or are we in the early stages of a more pronounced bear market?
– Have we seen enough pain in the Oil market and is the unwind over?
– Is King Dollar back and is the strong dollar going to ‘break the world’?
We’ve tackled all these topics and more in the recent Outlook Video and will continue to focus on them this week in the charts we post here on the blog.
Don’t forget to continue to keep and eye on action in USDCNH, the EURUSD affair with the 1.13 mark and GOLD around the 1200.

As we move into November, these are some of the points we will be focusing on in today’s webinar and video update:
1. How is FB going to settle today post earnings.
2. Are month-end flows going to come out swinging to defend the marks.
3. Can the month-end USD bid continue into November or is it just settling up swing opportunities.
4. How will AAPL trade post earnings, can it really stall the overall selling pressure or will it trigger an even larger correction.
5. Continue to keep an eye on intraday action in USDCNH for clues and tactical opportunities.

Some Key Charts

“Soros is the best loss taker I’ve ever seen. He doesn’t care whether he wins or loses on a trade. If a trade doesn’t work, he’s confident enough about his ability to win on other trades. There are a lot of shoes on the shelf; wear only the ones that fit. If you’re extremely confident, taking a loss doesn’t bother you.” – Stanley Druckenmiller

Chart of the Day

“Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe.” – Voltaire
As discussed, it’s hard to understand why anyone would want to be aggressively long risk in this kind of environment. Escalating trade tensions, event risk in the Middle East, difficult situation with Russia, more turmoil from Washington, weaker back-end September seasonals, buyback blackout period… just to name a few things. Markets remain extremely complacent.
