Good Morning

A very interesting market it has to be said. The lack of action by the BOJ has certainly put the cat amongst the pigeons. It has put into question the effectiveness of QE and whether it is worth continuing. That together with low growth figures in the US Continue Reading →

Good Morning

Well we got big price action but not in the direction that we predicted. Janet was neutral is probably the best analysis, no rate rise soon and the market loved that. The BOJ however was a big surprise. No new action so the JPY soared and all the Continue Reading →

Market moves were as expected yesterday; we ran up and down and ended little changed, Europe a little weaker than the US, but nothing of note really. The dollar bounced back a little and silver was a touch higher.

It is all about today with the FOMC at Continue Reading →

Good Morning

The open yesterday was a little more negative than I anticipated, the DAX fell 150 points or so. The mood has turned on expectation that the FOMC will be hawkish and set a tone where interest rate rises come back to the table. That along with bad earnings Continue Reading →

Good Morning

We have a very big week ahead with the BOJ and the FOMC both meeting this week. The volatility may come on the FX markets rather than the indices as BOJ turn up the QE heat and will the FOMC hint at rate rises? This morning we are Continue Reading →

Good Morning

A very interesting day yesterday, the stock rally stalled when Libya announce the prospect of increased oil production. Oil fell a dollar and the rallied ended. The market went sideways from there and we are at the same levels this morning. I think the stock market is now Continue Reading →

Good day yesterday, a bit quiet in the morning session but we livened up in the afternoon. The markets are really solid when oil is above $40 and yesterday it roared, the DOW and DAX gaining strongly. We open this morning with a bias towards the upside again Continue Reading →

We are a bit lower this morning after a great day yesterday. The markets really took off for most of the session buoyed by the rising oil price. We had some poor data from Housing starts and Goldman Sachs in the afternoon and that put a top on Continue Reading →

Good Morning

From the Monday morning gap discussed yesterday we saw gap closes across almost all major markets. Oil recovered the dip over the weekend with Indices and Currency pairings following suit and beyond. Very sturdy markets here in the short term and should continue through the week ahead.

We have a totally different market this morning based on the oil meeting in Doha. Nobody was expecting anything more than a freeze on production but in the end we got nothing. Iran did not even turn up. This is a blow to the recent oil rally and Continue Reading →

It was consolidation and a slow trading session yesterday. The market has bounced a long way but looks solid up here, especially as the oil price seems to have stabilised above $40. The market is in good mood and overnight Chinese growth data was as expected at 6.7%. Continue Reading →

A very strong day all around on the markets, the indices were in a power rally and the dollar made a comeback. Oil held in above $40 and the markets love these conditions. Low oil, low inflation and all this money printing can lead to short term euphoria. Continue Reading →

A big up day yesterday based on a big jump in oil. Rumours of a Saudi/Russian freeze being used as an excuse but in reality the commodity markets are just jumping on a lower dollar. The target for oil could be as high as $48 in the short Continue Reading →

A bit of volatility yesterday but we more or less stayed inside the ranges. Oil was the big wined with US crude back above $40 this morning. Seen as how there is nothing on the economic calendar again today we can expect a similar trading session to yesterday. Continue Reading →

Friday panned out as expected and markets stayed within the range. We are sliding lower on these indices, we were 10,000 on the DAX not so long ago. What is happening? We are in an extraordinary time of dovish Central bankers and yet they cannot rally the market. Continue Reading →

As oil has settled down so have the markets. Well the indices at least. We are still trying to find the bottom to the dollar especially against the JPY. Oil above $35 is good for markets and we will be stable and calm. Yesterday the markets fell throughout Continue Reading →

Good Morning

Yesterday was dominated by two things. Firstly a bounce in oil was good for stocks and secondly FOMC members including Janet were dovish again which was bad for the dollar. Stocks had a good day but the dollar did not. Indices are range bound for now it seems, Continue Reading →

We had a day yesterday led by oil sentiment. The market pushed lower towards $35 but recovered well in the end and the indices followed. Although we are lower overall, we are well off the lows. The DAX bounce was muted and is really underperforming given the QE, Continue Reading →

We really are in a bit of a tricky market here. The correction and recovery of the first quarter made a lot of sense. Oil dropped below$30 dollar then recovered and basically the market sentiment followed that. Oil in fact recovered to $42 at the height. Now the Continue Reading →

Sorry we are a bit late starting this morning, a few technical issues. First to Friday and the NFP, a good figure in the end and we are back at the top of recent ranges, Dow at 17,800. There are a lot of clouds gathering, oil is down Continue Reading →
