Welcome To Q2; Still Bullish. BUT China is a problem


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon people!

The first trading week of q2 is upon us, March surveys very strong again, multiple countries with a new 12M high reading, 84% breadth reading, MT Global score 56.2%, US 59.1%, Euro area 62.5%, UK 58.9% Outlier is indeed China at 50.6% and 11M low reading. Should China keep deteriorating the AUD will continue to be weak. Check out monthly Production Managers Index below.

Hopefully, the Chinese kick things back up and the global economy can start humming again. Over in Europe, ( *Face palm*) European politicians can’t stop digging no matter how deep they are in the hole. Everyone should know by now about the probability of infection and who are mostly in real danger. Overall survival rate is 99.85%. Yet, some regions cases rise again and they immediately lockdown again. National lockdown in France. Again. 

This causes or will cause disruption, but the last reading of IFO, INSEE, NBB, ESI and so forth was very strong. Germany, France, Italy, Spain – the “big4” – galloping higher in confidence. and so is the inflation outlook.

With a higher inflation outlook plus robust consumer confidence readings, I maintain and reiterate my bullish out look. Currently seeking to add more exposure to energy, financials and consumer discretionary stocks.

    • Hi   I had 2 long positions that were opened. I did not put any order to close them ie I was just leaving them opened without stop loss any the profit target . But suddenly they were closed this morning? Why?
    • Yes - there was a consolidation action of 1 for 1500 of these securities : https://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/news/market/LSE20210504170819_3963598/GraniteShares-3STS-Reverse-split-Consolidation I've been on chat and on the phone to IG - they've done the consolidation, but still not updated the correct prices, which should of course also rise by ~1,500 on a ceteris paribus basis (all things the same). At the time of writing this, TSLA has dropped a further 2.4% today, so these securities ought to have risen ~ 7.2% (3x short TSLA) on the day.  The IG person I spoke with this evening promised me he would check with the relevant team and revert. My call was very late in the day (after 6pm) so I trust that they will have this resolved in the morning. If not, I do suggest calling again. 
    • Hey all,  Unlike some other brokers IG do not trade against clients and don't benefit when our clients lose. We hedge the same way as the majority of our clients (so if 60% were long and 40% were short we would hedge those 20% long that aren't covered).  We have no benefit when traders lose. We make money from spread and commission so if anything we want out traders to win so they will continue trading with us.  Unfortunately I can't be account specific and if you believe something is wrong on your account please reach out to us as I can't assist with this.  If you have any questions on this please let me know by quoting my response.  All the best,  Charlotte
