Election fun

Recommended Posts

Only 10 weeks to go and it's election time in the good ol' US of A.....This exciting time has certainly excited the markets with another bull run into sky blue beyond. Which naturally pleases the Donut. What with Covid now invisible and a distancing memory and the economy simply booming we can all sleep easy knowing what a good job has been done by the powers that be and there is absolutely nothing to be concerned about regarding investments and the economy. Phew! 

What about unemployment? I hear the cynics ask. Hmmm. Has Covid really gone away? Is there really a working cure? Since the president's office has taken over managing the Covid numbers, it's obvious the immediate effect was to drive the virus away. Surely drive the numbers down? There goes the cynic again....Naturally, hospitality has resumed its optimal level, as has retail. Plus, we are all flying and cruising again, not to mention watching live sport at venues and meeting face to face at the office... Really? Will someone attend to the cynic, he is seriously affecting my narrative. Naturally, there is no social unrest either as the current incumbents are so unbiased and fair-minded as to be near saint like and worthy of cult status. So it's all alright then? 100%. 

The markets never lie do they? Fair representation of the economic reality we all see on the ground. So what if they are pricing that beaten up old Citroen as a new Bentley, one day it will be a classic and surely be worth every penny. Old style measurements are so passe, who needs P/E anymore? No, blue sky thinking is required. Out of the box , blue sky thinking. Out of your box, surely? Will someone please silence the cynical voice of reason, this is not the time of reason. 

Dow back to pre covid levels, Nasdaq and S&P broken new records. Markets must be right. Everything is the same as it was before this mini crisis. Look at the numbers. They never lie. (Unlike the Donut). Enough of that Mr Cynic, you are such a Cassandra.....

They can even go higher, afterall value is limitless,isn't it? The fed is promising indefinite ultra loose monetary policy, so why not? Out cynic that, Mr Cynic!

Bye bye dollar then.

    • AUD/USD appears vulnerable as the US dollar remains strong; the move lower arrives just before a crucial RBA meeting that could add volatility and if bearish momentum continues to unfold, how low will AUD/USD go? Source: Bloomberg   Forex Shares AUD/USD Market sentiment Price Investment   The Australian dollar made a two-year low to end last week as bearish momentum appeared to pick up steam. A bearish triple moving average (TMA) formation requires the price to be below the short term simple moving average (SMA), the latter to be below the medium term SMA and the medium term SMA to be below the long term SMA. All SMAs also need to have a negative gradient. Looking at the 10-, 21-, 55-, 100- and 200-day SMAs, AUD/USD met the criteria for a bearish TMA in the middle of June. It may signal that bearish momentum could continue to evolve. If the price moves back above the 10-day SMA, the TMA will no longer be valid. Support may lie at Friday’s low of 0.6764. The previous lows 0.6829 and 0.6850 might offer break point resistance. The RBA monetary policy committee meeting on Tuesday might provide event risk volatility opportunities. The market is anticipating a 50 basis points (bps) hike and anything other than that could see a significant move. If they hike by less than 50 bps it could see the support levels tested and a break below them might see a continued run lower. Conversely, a hike by more than 50 bps might see resistance levels challenged and if they are overcome, we may have seen the low for the medium-term last week. AUD/USD daily chart Source: TradingView AUD/USD weekly chart Last week’s push lower stopped just above the 50% Fibonacci Retracement level at 0.6758 to make a low of 0.6764. This Fibonacci level may continue to provide support. The bigger picture highlights that since the February 2021 peak of 0.8007, the price has made lower highs and lower lows, revealing descending trend lines above and below the price. The lower trend line that currently dissects the price at 0.6748 is under threat and a break there could indicate further bearishness is unfolding.

    • Golden Finance reports that BTC is approaching a "very favorable risk-reward price area" according to crypto analyst Rekt Capital on social media, who believes "BTC will be different in this cycle as its price has recently been hovering below its 200-week moving average (MA), a bottoming indicator that could face sell-side exhaustion. BTC is reaching historically oversold levels, and this extreme oversoldness will coincide with investment opportunities."
