Santa Rally – End of Year ‘Window Dressing’ or more..?

by on
Many bullish trending charts broke in the run up to xmas. But we have not experienced any dramatic falls that price watchers may have expected. Seasonals have done their magic trick of supporting prices and stabalized things. Of course central bankers and some slightly better economic data from the US has assisted. The DOW cash...

Portfolio Allocations & Markets.. The Multi Asset BEAR is Very Close Now..

by on
Ok, so where are we? In my opinion, the old trader’s line of ‘buy the rumour sell the news’ has been spot on. Seasonals have a part but they don’t drive the market. We are, therefore, in the process of the entire ‘risk on’ trend breaking. As a general technical and fundamental comment, rather than...

Euro – FX (Inc news update – ECB Cuts Bank Reserve Ratios to 1% But Reminds The Beaurocrats that ‘debt monetization impossible’)

Markets have risen nicely to resistances and tomorrow the euro meetings start. The good news is...

From 2010 he has pegged his country’s currency to the dollar. He is interpretting recent events re the continued printing of money and debt monetizations...

Weekly Technical Update.. (Inc Janjuah Interview)

by on
Short term at over bought levels (and price resistances). UBS expects another few percentage points on the basis of the xmas rally before the cyclical bear resumes. In spite of the mildly bullish call UBS declares selling into strength the better move at this point – which, in my opinion, is the correct move due...

“Buy The Rumour Sell the News”

by on
Following the central bank’s actions last Tuesday its been right to wait and see how prices of the different asset classes have reacted to the intervensions before commenting and taking too many actions. On the news last week, it was correct to add risk via reducing the hedging shorts and adding a few euros. The...
