Asian Stocks Down, as New Coronavirus Strain Makes a “Scary Headline”


Recommended Posts

Markets often do this type of tactic. Some big sellers take advantage and sell big.

Late, hours to days, the market heads back up.

This has been the usual thing..... until ..... the merry go round stops. Then the market will crash.

Question is how far a drop now and far far back up, in time rof Santa's rally?

Hi @skyreach


Chris Harvey’s reign as the year’s biggest bull won’t extend into next year.

The Wells Fargo Securities head of equity strategy, whose 2021 S&P 500 target is 4,825, predicts Wall Street will stage a vibrant year-end rally and then see a losing 2022.

Change of volume and momentum moves on the monthly to daily prices give a general indication of  likely longer term future.

Some think most markets have peaked viewing the existing total amount of borrowed money for investing because they think it is a no brainer and prudent rules go out of the window. The professionals have borrowed levels is at highest ever. This has been the precursor to bear markets.

When it starts, who can say? Anyone knows?

Also new public and other investors go into the market in its last stages. That is when some big professionals start to sell off, hence the big volatility moves in the markets. Some plausible public event / political event or an immediate negative drama unfolds is used to justify in the media why the sell off. The pattern is the same  every time.

Volatility increases , down huge amount, then up again, as the market makers have an agreed average sell price for their big clients. You cannot sell a huge quantity without the rest of the market sitting still, they sell into it too. So the price will go back up and more sell offs at the higher levels.  What happens after that depends on the general market's mood.

Lot of people, in the frenzy, think "the markets will ALWAYS GO UP AFTER A FALL / CORRECTION. But there comes a point it will  not. Still the players HOPE that it will go back up. Always investors usually experience sometime in their trading life.

    • Early Morning Call: Shell warns on earnings as refining margins drop The oil price is up after OPEC+ delivered a 2-million barrel per day cut, while Shell warns on earnings as it sees a drop in refining margins.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Thursday 06 October 2022  Macro overview US equity markets consolidated yesterday after two days of strong gains. The Dow Jones fell by 0.14%, and the Nasdaq ended the session 0.25% lower. Overnight the session was mixed in the APAC region. In Australia, trade surplus narrowed to a six-month low - A$8.32 billion - in August, below market forecasts of a A$10.1 billion surplus. Exports grew by 3%, while imports increased 4% compared to last month. For San Francisco Fed President Mary Daly, the path has been very clear: "we are going to raise the rate until we get into restrictive territory, and then we are going to hold it there" until inflation comes down closer to 2%. In an Interview with Bloomberg yesterday Daly reiterated the Fed's commitment to restore price stability, and it particularly waiting for two important sets of data. She hopes tomorrow’s non-farm payrolls (NFP) will confirm the start of a hiring slowdown. Earlier this week, JOLTs openings fell to their lowest level since June 2021. Current expectations for non-farm payrolls are 250,000 job creations in September. If actual figures were to match that forecast, it should be the lowest number of job creations since December 2020. The San Francisco Fed president would also like to see next week's CPI showing underlying price pressures either stabilising or falling. She could be disappointed there. If the headline figure is expected to fall to 8.1%, economists see core CPI rise accelerating to 6.5%. The Fed is expected to deliver a fourth straight 75-basis-point rate hike when it meets early next month. Equity overview Elsewhere on the equity market, Shell warns this morning that its third quarter (Q3) profits will be weakened by a sharp drop in refining margins and expects "significantly" weaker earnings from natural gas trading. N Brown posted an 82.4% drop in adjusted profit before tax and revised its profit guidance down. Imperial Brands announced £1 billion share buyback programme, and says that total capital returns in full-year 23 (FY23), including ordinary dividends and share buybacks, are expected to exceed £2bn. Levi Strauss & Company is set to post its third quarter earnings after market close tonight. Analysts anticipate earnings of 37 cents per share, gathering pace after the 29 cents reported three months ago, but some 23% lower than the same quarter a year ago. Revenue is forecast to increase by 6.7% to $1.6bn. Levi Strauss can count on the strength of its brand, but like many other retailers, it has to face supply chain issues, in an adverse economic environment. Investors will be particularly attentive to the group guidance, which at the moment stands at $1.50-$1.56 for the full year. Constellation Brands Inc is poised to release its second quarter (Q2) earnings before the US opening bell. The maker of Corona beer is expected to report an 18% increase in earnings per share to $2.78. Revenue should reach $2.50bn. Commodities Oil prices are holding at the new three-week high set yesterday. OPEC+ agreed on a two million barrels per day (bpd) cut yesterday, saying it was an adequate response in a context of rising interest rates and weakening global economy. US president Joe Biden called the decision "short-sighted" and said he would continue to assess whether to release further strategic oil stocks to lower prices. The next OPEC+ meeting will take place on 4 December. OPEC+ will move to meet every six months instead of monthly meetings. The EIA confirmed the decline across the board announced by the API on Tuesday. Crude inventories fell by 1.4 million barrels last week. U.S. gasoline stocks shrank by 4.7mn barrels, and distillate stockpiles fell by 3.4Mln barrels has context menu     This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • Stock markets remain in a more bullish pattern after the losses of recent weeks, and Asian indices made some more progress, albeit in a more tentative fashion. Oil prices remain on an upward path following OPEC's move to cut output by two million barrels per day, pushing prices to their highest level since mid-September. Stronger data in the form of the ADP report and the ISM non-manufacturing PMI caused a wobble in stocks, which have rallied on fresh hopes that the Fed will pivot away from its hawkish policy in the near future. Today is a quieter day, with just the UK construction PMI and weekly jobless claims, and the focus is now shifting to tomorrow's non-farm payroll report.   
    • Scallops Chart Pattern are J-shaped, inverted J-shaped, or mirror J-shaped continuation patterns that appear often during trending markets. This pattern has a steep momentum and a rounded bottom or top. The structure is pretty smooth at first, then the market begins to rush up with significant momentum, or vice versa.
