Good Morning All,

Well we finally got that break in the lull with our first real spark of ‘news’. A Global Risk tone seeped into the markets from early on in the Trading session with news that Chinese Officials were said to see US Treasuries as less attractive and were recommending Continue Reading →

Good Morning All,

It has been a very slow start to the year for many Traders with very little going on so far in the markets to confirm a strong bias to trade off of. There is very little happening in the news and not much to watch out for Continue Reading →

Good Morning All,

Yesterday we saw a continuation of bullish Indices with new highs in the S&P. Dow Jones traded a bit more side ways and the Dax failed to continue higher towards it’s all time high level of Nov 2017. So we should be noting the slow down in the rally Continue Reading →

Good Morning All,

Some of you might only be returning back to the markets after the Christmas so we’ll try to sum up the last week of Trading in a couple of lines; there was very little in terms of big news events which allowed Indices to continue their stretch Continue Reading →

Good Morning All,

In the markets yesterday we experienced much of the same as we did on Wednesday. Indices continue to break higher in the US and Asia with European markets tagging along with some new daily highs to be happy with. FX markets are relatively range bound and should Continue Reading →

Good Morning All,

Yesterday we had a relatively subdued day across most markets. No major shocks and no major moves which is not a bad thing. The main focus of interest is keeping with US and Asian Indices and how they are continuing to make new highs as the slightly Continue Reading →

Good Morning All

Today we are still just easing our way back into the New Year. You should not be charging in and spending all your bullets until you get a good feel for the lie of the land.

So far we can see that not much has changed and Continue Reading →

Santa rally to continue for a while

Good Morning

As expected a good strong up day all round for the indices, nothing else moving in reality. This morning and this afternoon it is likely that trend will continue, so buy on dips is the correct strategy. I would not be a seller in this market at any Continue Reading →

Good Morning

The start of the Christmas week and it seems the US stock rally has not finished yet. That is the driver of the markets and the euphoria around Trump’s tax plans. We have even driven the DAX higher at last.

Other markets are completely flat and only trades Continue Reading →

Good Morning

That is it in regards major announcements for the year. The Central bankers are on holidays and the market will adopt that tone soon also.

We had a bit of a pull-back yesterday as the Tax cuts ran into some difficulty. I expect that story to run and Continue Reading →

A IIFT 2

Good Morning

The rate rise came and that is Janet Yellen’s last act as Fed chairman. The forward guidance was as expected and dovish to be honest. That meant the dollar fell in the end and the stock market reached another all-time high.

No rest today as we have the Continue Reading →

A IIFT 2

Good Morning

Today is the last big news day of the year. Janet Yellen has a last chance to raise rates by a further .25% this evening. There is a 90% chance she will do that, so the only surprise is no change. We can straddle that using only Continue Reading →

Good Morning

The market was as expected yesterday, a quiet start but an upward bias. Today we start to get into the data releases. Especially those linked to inflation and interest rates. There is a straddle first thing in the UK.

Bias is still to the upside although more so Continue Reading →

Good Morning

A bit late this morning due to the weather, so a quick one.

The NFP on Friday kept the rally intact and the market bias is up this morning also. A bit of confusion over the Brexit deal has GBP on the back foot. FX is really steady, Continue Reading →

Deal in Europe should add to the positive sentiment.

Good Morning

There is a lot going on. Firstly the Index markets have their mojo back and with that, the dollar is rising. We have the NFP today and a decision on rates next week. The NFP is not as important as in the past; inflation and growth are more Continue Reading →

Good Morning

Yesterday we saw a bit of a recovery on the index markets. Foreign exchange was pretty flat but gold and silver fell hard. Maybe it is the money going into Bitcoin and leaving gold that is causing such a sustained sell-off. The safe-haven status of gold has not Continue Reading →

Very volatile conditions, direction lost.

Good Morning

We are experiencing really volatile moves across all index markets. FX and commodities are stable but the indices are untradeable. There is a great lesson here for everybody and that is; we like the calm and choppy markets, this stuff is no good for retail traders.

Can we Continue Reading →
