Into ECB

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” – Calvin Coolidge

 At this stage, we just have to be patient and get through the last ECB and FOMC meetings of the year.
Nothing much has change in terms of our bigger picture view. We still feel that markets are being extremely complacent and that we are currently in a distributive phase of the cycle. Naturally this does not mean that we could not move back higher but our belief is that the risk/reward is still on the ‘sell into strength camp’ both from a tactical and cyclical perspective. 
Following on from our bigger picture Pivotal weaker DXY theme, here are 3 key charts that we will be discussing and reviewing:

Yesterday’s range is  equities is going to be key. It’s going to be important for the bulls to get above it and hold the break into the end of the week to keep the positive momo. On the other hand, the bears need to get below and hold below. It may seem trivial but these levels are pivotal for a number of reasons. We will discuss more in today’s session.
As we have been highlighting, remember to keep an eye on USDCNH. It’s the key piece of the puzzle in order to understand current action in the metals and DXY.

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” – Steve Jobs
As we have been discussing since the previous video and as highlighted once again in our latest outlook, our focus will remain on the DXY as we head into the end of the month and the Labor Day long weekend.
Remember that positioning is very one-sided on a lot of the pairs and you really want to be cautious about not getting caught fighting flows in a waive of covering. If interested, we posted the GOLD, NZDUSD and USDCHF charts on our twitter feed yesterday.
With respect to equities, there is very little to comment on > it’s a grind/squeeze higher until it isn’t… focus is all on follow-through and if markets can attract new buyers at highs. As always with these kind of moves, the key is riding the move but understanding that sooner or later there will be an exhaustion of buyers and you do not want to end up being the last bagholder.

– Gautama Buddha
Not much has changed as we wait for BOE today and NFP / ISM tomorrow. We have attached to two main charts we would be keeping an eye on to get a feel is the ramp attempts in equities have any legs. We’ll stick with our base-case scenario that equities are still in a complex topping process and that we have already seen the highs in quite a few of the charts. Again, don’t forget to keep and eye on bonds!
