Nikkei: stock market volatility here to stay next week

Updated -  Aug 28, 2015 7:40:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

The Japanese stock markets closed up another 3% on Friday as its impressive kick-back rally in the second half of the week continued unabated. Sentiment has been boosted in part by the surprisingly strong upward revision in US GDP, a solid finish on Wall Street and after the release of mostly better-than-expected domestic data. Retail sales increased 1.6% year-over-year in July, the unemployment rate fell to 3.3% from 3.4% and the national core CPI measure [...] Continue Reading


What’s next for bruised buck bulls?

Updated -  Aug 27, 2015 3:30:00 PM By Matt Weller, CMT

The white-knuckle roller coaster ride that is this week’s markets continues today. Equities rallied across the board, with European indices rising 3+% and US bourses tracking about 1% higher as of writing. Yields in the US, UK, Germany, and Japan are all ticking higher today, showing modest selling of safe-haven bonds across the globe (this same sentiment is reflected in gold’s lackluster trade today). Meanwhile, oil prices have exploded higher today, with the benchmark WTI [...] Continue Reading


Stocks surge… but are we climbing a wall of worry?

Updated -  Aug 27, 2015 1:00:00 PM By Fawad Razaqzada

The stock market volatility has been a dominant theme this week. After that vicious sell-off on Monday, the markets have bounced back strongly thanks in part to the PBOC’s decision to further loosen monetary policy. Concerns over the health of the US economy have also eased somewhat following the release of mostly better than expected data this week. The latest readings on consumer confidence, durable goods orders and now GDP have all topped expectations. But [...] Continue Reading

Nothing else compares to this high-horsepower shot into the sky. From a standing start you’re launched forward, then straight up, then straight down and back to the finish line.

Crude: short squeeze rally or bear trend resumption?

Updated -  Aug 27, 2015 7:00:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

The price of oil has risen for the third consecutive day. Since hitting a low of $42.20 on Monday, Brent has risen by $2.80 to a high so for of $45.00. In percentage terms, it has gained a good 6.5%. WTI has slightly underperformed in nominal terms as it has ‘only’ gained $2.60 from its low on Monday but because it has risen from a lower base, it has outperformed on a percentage basis – [...] Continue Reading


Australia’s mixed CAPEX data and the risk proxy, AUDJPY

Updated -  Aug 26, 2015 11:45:06 PM By Chris Tedder

The mining sector in Australia is weighing heavily on overall capital expenditure and investment. Australian private capital expenditure fell a seasonally adjusted 4.0% in Q2, missing an expected 2.5% q/q fall. Buildings and structures fell 5.6% and equipment, plant and machinery dropped 1.2% last quarter. Since the same period last year total new CAPEX has fallen a disheartening 10.5%, led by a 16.7% decline in building and structure spending over the same period. The [...] Continue Reading


Why “we’re all USD/JPY traders now”

Updated -  Aug 26, 2015 2:15:00 PM By Matt Weller, CMT

“We’re all Keynseians now” – Milton Friedman The above quote is often misattributed to US President Richard Nixon, when he closed the gold convertibility window. Regardless, the phrase “We are all _____ now” has since become part of the lexicon for anyone trying to make a broad generalization about the current zeitgeist. Amidst the recent global market turmoil, I’d like to postulate that “We are all USD/JPY traders now.” That’s because USD/JPY has become [...] Continue Reading


Gold: is the selling overdone?

Updated -  Aug 26, 2015 1:00:00 PM By Fawad Razaqzada

From its opening price of about $1145 today, gold has dropped almost $30 to a low so far of $1117. It has therefore shed its entire gains made since the beginning of the US stock market meltdown on Wednesday of last week. On the one hand, gold’s counter-intuitive price action this week strongly suggests that the metal is heading to significantly lower levels. After all, the 1000 point drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average [...] Continue Reading


GBP/USD: Bears’ turn for a day in the sun

Updated -  Aug 26, 2015 8:50:00 AM By Matt Weller, CMT

Amidst the rollercoaster ride that unexpected seized most global markets over the last few days, trade in GBP/USD has remained relatively sanguine. Cable rallied “just” 80 pips on Monday, while the dollar lost far more value against the euro and yen, before reversing that move on Tuesday to trade back at the 1.5700 level. As of writing, it looks like GBP/USD is finally ready for its day in the sun, and so far, the sun [...] Continue Reading


Has USD/JPY formed a major top?

Updated -  Aug 26, 2015 6:50:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

The USD/JPY’s strong correlation with the equity markets, if sustained, point to significantly lower levels for the major indices, especially the Nikkei. That’s because the USD/JPY’s monthly chart (in figure 1) suggests a major top may have been formed around the 124/26 area. Although the markets may swing wildly going forward, it will essentially be in a downward trending environment – at least judging by the behaviour of the USD/JPY currency pair and until proven [...] Continue Reading
