Charts of the Day

“Do not permit the events of your daily life to bind you, but never withdraw yourself from them.” – Zen Proverb
Markets remain in grind higher mode as we wait for the last trading session of the week. There is very little edge in trying to fade these steady grinds, especially into quadruple witching.
Remember that today usually results in one of the most active trading days of the year. Furthermore, we will also see S&P and MSCI proceed to the re-classification/re-categorization of information technology and communications sectors and don’t forget that we usually to see tape bombs hit the wires in the latter part of these Friday sessions.
Could end up being a fairly sporty day…

Chart of the Day

“You have to take risks. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen.” – Paulo Coelho
More of the same as wait for Mr. Market to sustain a serious move in either direction.
Interesting to note in the o/n session; China comments on them having no interest in currency manipulation and that this would actually be counterproductive. Keep an eye on USDCNH as this has  been a key driver of recent moves, not only in the FX complex but also in the metals. If we continue to see an unwind, especially sub 6.70s, then we could really see GOLD and Commodity currencies get some upside traction.

Apart from the open in tech and the recent shenanigans in USDCNH, don’t forget to keep an eye on the bonds as we move into the busy part of the week in terms of the economic calendar.
As we have been discussing, it will be every interesting to see how we trade into the end of the month with the likely tug-of-war between earnings ramps and upcoming QT, basically the reduction in the Federal Reserve System Open Market Account (SOMA).
Sorry but unfortunately, still no way of posting a weekly outlook video due to the fact that I am still struggling with my voice. Fingers crossed for next week at the very latest.

All about the Fed

Waiting for the Fed

No change from our discussion on equities in the latest Weekly Outlook Video. We are happy to focus on the 50/100/200DMAs on ES and YM, letting them guide us as we wait for the next sustained move.
We continue to believe that Amazon, Netflix, etc… are an accident waiting to happen and that once single name ramps end, everyone is going to be looking back an scratching their heads finally realizing what an extraordinary and unsustainable phenomenon this has been.
Today we wanted to offer up some food for thought with a bigger picture monthly view of this incredibly important cyclical inflection point we are at going into FOMC:

Super Thursday

We are looking forwards to more action into the end of the week. If you are an active 50Scouts member: keep an eye on your inbox for a free pass to Friday’s daily webinar session (make sure to check your spam folder too), we’ll have plenty to discuss and review. 😉
As much as things have stabilized in the US, foreign markets are still struggling. We recently reviewed DAX and FTSE in detail but take a look at some of these other charts…
Make sure you keep on watching the bonds. As we have been warning repeatedly, still no sustained bounce in sight and all the other asset classes will be forced to pay attention and adjust…
In terms of equities, it’s all about recent lows vs the highs we made yesterday. If those highs give, then we would expect another push back towards all time highs (as discussed in our recent morning call). Don’t forget to watch intraday action on Boeing and Amazon for clues. Here is the NQ chart to give you an idea of the dynamics (ES and YM are very similar and we’ll be redrawing and discussing those live today). If you had to focus on one, ES is clearly the most technical and purest for now…
