  • This week's ECB meeting minutes should be interesting to watch especially in light of the US-China #tradewar. Stay tuned for more in-depth analysis.
  • You also have to take into account the demographic factor whereby the wide-spread graying of Europe (and soon the US) will further sap inflationary pressure. As people age, they spend less of their income because unlike their younger years, they aren't trying to accumulate stuff.
  • Europeans are going to have to find a way to reconcile that because cutting rates deeper into negative territory I don't think is going to give the same stimulative effect as when rates were higher. Plus they've already got QE going on indefinitely.
  • "Policymakers therefore have to find a way to reconcile maintaining the institutional integrity of the growth and stability pact – in order to prevent states from flirting with sovereign debt crises and wrecking the Eurozone – and letting members exercise greater fiscal autonomy"

Student's Question:Does this look like a valid interpretation of the RSI? Thanks.Instructor's Response:Yes it does...good work.When the RSI attains a certain level, 74 in the case of this chart, and then makes a bullish move again but is not able to take out the previous level, only attaining 72.5 in the second attempt, this is referred to as "Failure Swing" by Welles Wilder, the inventor of the RSI. He states that this is a very bearish signal provided by the RSI.

Conversely, a bullish Failure Swing would be the opposite of what was described above. The RSI would fall below 30 for example, then rally up, then fall back toward 30 and then break above the previous high.Wilder indicated that these Failure Swings above 70 and below 30 on the RSI are strong indications of market reversals.
