Dow Jones, S&P 500 Wary of Quadruple Witching Volatility - US Market Open

Dow Jones, S&P 500 Wary of Quadruple Witching

While equity markets appear to have stabilised with US equity futures looking to make back to back gains for the first time this month. We are cognizant of the fact that today is quadruple witching, therefore market participants will be bracing themselves for perhaps another frenzied session, given that today’s event comes after the fastest drop into bear market territory in history and record stretch of +/- 4% trading sessions in US equities. Keep in mind, that with open interest in US equities hovering at multi-year highs an unwind (or rolling off) leveraged positions can make for a volatile session, particularly to the upside.

CAD: Equity markets have stabilised this morning, while the US Dollar has seen a modest pullback. However, we see this as a temporary pause in the dollar strength as opposed to a significant reversal. Volatility remains elevated and as long as this is the case, particularly in a recessionary environment then there will be fundamental demand for dollars. That said, the Canadian Dollar has also benefitted from a lift in oil prices after reports that Texas (Largest oil producing state in the US) could curtail oil production for the first time in decades. Although, with the spread of the coronavirus showing little signs of easing up, more and more countries will continue to go on lockdown, thus reduce demand for oil, as such, risks remain tilted to the downside for oil.Levels to Watch
