As was going to be in the APAC report the markets are reluctant to move too much immediately before the FOMC rate decision and report tomorrow, Dow content to mosey on up to the fence and just peek over to the other side as is Dax and Nikkei. Ftse has made a break for it and will be interesting to see if it can make that stick today.

Interesting day yesterday with an unexpected shoot for the top and fall back. Getting in on a high immediately before FOMC would have been ambitious and the market seems to have thought better of it.

FOMC at the changed time of 6:00 pm today with the presser at 6:30.

Something seems to be stirring in Downing street, May wanted an extension to June 30th,

EU says May's letter arrives too late and rumoured to demand extension must be to Dec,

May calls a cabinet meeting today which lasts just minutes before they are all back out on the street with long faces (according to Guy Lambert BBC).

Rumours that May will make a statement at some time soon today.

Good read in the APAC brief on the double edged sword of the FOMC meet yesterday causing an initial jump higher in indices on reduced expectation of rate rises then reflection and price recall with future growth not so certain and a reduction in general risk appetite. Gold took off and hasn't looked back. Same for USD except in the opposite direction.

Dow is currently looking to retest support at 25658 and same for Dax which is heading down towards 11569.

Ftse with it's Brexit concerns coiling down mid range and Nikkei heading to close around support at 21422.

Weekly charts and an interesting Friday. Red weekly bars all round, it was all going good til Friday though Dax started heading down on Thursday with very poor PMIs, Then on Friday US PMIs were down on expectations though still in positive territory, then mid-day the treasury yield curve inversion breaking news and the selling continued as longs built up over the week were exited before the weekend. Ftse gave up all Mon-Thurs gains plus some as did the others. More interesting news that came out after the US close was that there would be no further indictments from the Mueller inquiry which is finally wrapping up, so no chance of a Trump impeachment on that score. That may make an impression when markets open and provide a boost, but if the fall continues the level to keep an eye on is the Dow support at 25214.

Included is the S&P daily, worth keeping an eye on this as well to see if it can turn the 2812.85 resistance level recently broken into support.

In the post above I wrote how the news of the inverted yield curve broke mid day Friday and may have contributed to the continuation down for the indices Friday afternoon, but before you all pile in short Monday morning there are a few important points to consider.

While it's true that the inverted yield curve (10y/1y) often precedes a recession, in the last recession of 2007 it preceded it by nearly a full 2 years. As an indicator that might be stretching it a bit. In fact the average lead time of the 9 recessions since the 1950's is 14 months, so you might want to take your finger off the sell button just for the moment.

Pic 2 is also interesting and shows a following recession is not a dead cert and also that currently the inversion has only just touched into negative territory. And in pic 3 we see that the more widely used 10y/2y has not inverted at all (yet?). 

Like all indicators it's indicating possibilities, something to be aware of, until there's price action confirmation I would keep the finger off the trigger.

Weekend Dow gets an early boost from the just released official summary of the Mueller report (also mentioned in the Sat morning post above). Trump (and all connected to him) no evidence of any Russian collusion or obstruction of justice.

A small gap up on the Dow but quickly cancelled by an Asia inspired continuation down. Dow resting on 25373 with the above mentioned important weekly support level not far below at 25214 while there is prior support turned possible resistance above at 25503. 

Dax in a similar position resting on 11284 but below that is a long drop down to the weekly support at 10861, above is prior support turned possible resistance at 11404.

Ftse has dropped down into clear space with support at 7080 and resistance above at 7262.

Yes @Kodiak, the first head and shoulders can be said to have played out though not quite making the full measured move while the inverse H&S broke the neckline last week but got stomped on by the bad Ger manu PMI on Thursday. Nothing much news wise except maybe brexit or US GDP data this Thursday to give it a push either way at the mo.

Dow, Dax and Ftse have halted the climb back up to make a base camp, Dow stalling around 25600 on it's climb up after Friday's fall, Dax tagged the 11404 mentioned in yesterday mornings post. Fste stopped at 7207. The London open should show direction from here.

Nikkei was doing well until an hour ago when it suffered a large gap down seemingly on the CPI data release dropping to 0.4% from 0.5%.

    • yes, 'it's slowing it down' as I said, but it will still come and with it will come business reopening and a return to normality.
    • @HPbrand, The long term value of Bitcoin is what ever the world deems necessary. What this is I do not know. In terms of chances that Bitcoin goes to zero or pushed to zero is low in my personal view. If it was going to have failed and crashed then it would have done so after the parabolic and insane $20k price spike. I am not saying it cannot go to zero if something better comes along but until that happens I do not see Bitcoin going to 0 anytime soon.  I find that the more you read on Crypto and learn about it, understand it better the less you will become sceptical about it. I could argue that I am sceptical of something which is inside of Government control. Are the politicians in power any more wiser or intelligent than other people in society? I find the brightest minds do not work for Government. They want to be paid handsomely and therefore you will find the most intellectual beings working for the private sector or for themselves (self employed).  If you are trading based on price action then you need to remove your personal emotions about Crypto and your personal views about it and just trade based on price action and use the same signals / indicators you would for any other asset such as Commodities, Indices, etc.  Some of the books which I read which really changed my thinking on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain were: Digital Gold (The Untold Story of Bitcoin) by Nathaniel Popper Blockchain (Blueprint for a New Economy) by Melanie Swan The Business Blockchain by William Mougayar Blockchain Revolution by Don Tapscott and Alex Tapscott The Book of Satoshi (The Collected Writings of Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto) by Phil Champagne Cryptoassets (The Innovative Investors Guide to Bitcoin and Beyond) by Chris Burniske and Jack Tatar If you get a chance then read some of these books if not all. This will increase your knowledge of the area rather than relying on media garbage that gets spurned out by journalists who know very little about the subject area. These books really opened up my mind and gave me information that helped me to understand Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain better.  Now acquiring knowledge and trading Cryptocurrencies are two different things. This is where a lot of people are letting their personal opinions, emotions and views get in the way of their trading decisions. If at any given time Cryptos are the 'Strongest Trending Assets' either on the 'long' side of 'short' side then surely the better traders who want to maximise their profits and achieve the greatest performance possible would seriously consider trading that asset. In my view they would do so using the same trading plan, trading strategy and trading system they use for any other asset. This is where a lot of people let their personal views cloud their trading judgement.
