  1. Equity and Commodity market outlook Dec 29 - 2014

    Talking points

    • GER30 and US30 are lower this morning, hinting about a bearish week for Stock Markets
    • Greece's Samaras loses Presidential vote
    • USOIL may prove to be very interesting if we get a breakout as the US markets open today

    Stock markets are slightly weaker today with the US30 and GER30 being lower on profit taking but also on Greece's Samaras losing the Presidential vote. Out of the US30, GER30 and UK100, it’s only the UK100 that is holding up. Given that US30 and GER30 are both lower, this strengthens the case that the first few days of this week will be bearish.

    After 2 to 3 days correction I suspect that traders will opt for long positions on a dip, primarily via the US30.

  2. FX London session outlook EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY, AUDUSD - Dec 23

    by , 12-23-2014 at 08:22 AM
    The US Dollar keeps on gaining and our bullish US Dollar views since Friday last week have so far worked out great. Today we are very near the yearly low of the GBPUSD and if US Data prints better than expected we may create a new yearly low. IF data is worse off than expected we may get a short covering rally. This means that short term traders are probably booking gains on GBPUSD short term positions and only longer term traders are keeping their positions.

    AUDUSD created a new yearly low overnight but has since bounced. We can see on the chart that price is reluctantly trading lower but as long as the trend is bearish so will I be bearish.

    The overall trend is bearish and a breakout below 1.2222 should

    The DAX30 traded higher in yesterday's session but did not manage to firmly take out 9920 which was Friday's high. This leaves us trapped between 9827 and 9930. Traders that are waiting to trade will probably opt for a breakout above 9930, which should trigger a rally to 10 000. While traders that are already long have probably left their stops just below 9827 which is yesterdays swing low.

    Gold managed to take out the 1185 low and traded as low as 1171, I was anticipating a decline to 1166. Today we are correcting some of yesterday's losses, but as long as we trade below 1206 I expect that traders will short again and eventually drive ...

    As we are nearing the end of 2014, liquidity is much lower than usual but Stock markets tend to rally during this period of the year hence there is no strong reason to rule out further Stock Market rallies. My reasons for being bullish are the same like last week i.e. decent world GDP growth, low inflation environment, expected GDP boost by lower Oil prices and more monetary easing by the ECB in 2015.

    Gold has turned flat and may very well remain flat for some time as the FOMC meeting was not hawkish enough to kick start a strong US Dollar trend.

    USOil has been trending strongly and generated a good amount of opportunities last week, the overall range is however turning a bit narrow and we might need some consolidation
