Just to recap, on the first market high in Jan  2018 Trump started the trade war causing the first slide down, the market worked it's way back up and at the top in Sept 2018 Trump turned the screws again sending the market back down. And now he has done the same again, how far will it fall. There is likely to be a delay in any major movement as the Chinese delegation, which includes China's vice president, arrives in Washington to continue talks (the 11th round) Thursday and Friday.

Dow back down testing support this morning and looking to bounce. Expecting a day driven by trade talk headlines again with price ranging between the current S1 and R1. Dax is holding up a little better buoyed by better than expected Ger indy prod data. Nikkei is being hit the hardest due to it's closeness to China while Ftse has problems of it's own with Brexit uncertainty.

So initially will be looking to see if Dow will break down through support or start a leg back up to the top of the range and would expect the others to follow.

US indices climbing back up towards the open price after another day of mixed signals but the real talking (US/China) starts after US market close, might be worth keeping an eye on the futures market for a clue as to London open prices tomorrow.

Doesn't seem as any progress has been made, the Chinese undoubtedly confused as all other US presidents have  just capitulated at the first sign of trouble. Dow checking the downside, Dax retested yesterday's low, both now rebounding. The last news was of just an hour ago and not much expected now til Trump starts tweeting about 1pm bst.

The trade talks are done and not even the pretense of making any headway, Trump happily tweeting that companies should make goods in the US and avoid Tariffs!

Interestingly the markets seem to have given up caring with price now back to start the day levels or higher.

End of week S&P and an interesting touch point on yesterday's daily candle (see chart below).

There were reports going round yesterday concerning the trade talks that there was not actually any meeting as such. The US chief negotiator Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin simply told Vice Premier Liu that they had just 4 weeks before the US imposed 25% tariffs on near everything else imported from China, some $325 Bln worth of goods.

Looks like that 'China has got 4 weeks' from the post above might be right, this vid retweeted by Trump a few hours ago.

Looking at the weekly charts and the past 3 weeks have been red for Dow and Ftse and this may continue as the bones of the trade war are laid bare and not likely to be resolved any time soon. Trump looks determined to hold China to account for gross intellectual property theft, product copying and selling on the international free market.

There was only a small gap down after the weekend and the collapse of trade talks with no scheduled follow up and it will be interesting to see how the week unfolds.

Dow is trying to get a bounce off key support at 25214 which is a weekly chart level support in this last hour of the US session.

Below is a short vid of a twitter thread on how Trump has played the trade game so far.

Dow daily and a good bounce up off 25214 support from early March.

I suspect there will be a slow recovery over the next couple of weeks but I've a feeling Trump will need to, and will, play the big hand and go all in 25% tariff on everything and that will likely come as a big shock to the markets. Until then will be looking for higher.

Daily chart with weekly pivots.

A look at the S&P, a second daily bull candle after Trump's clearing the battle field in order to concentrate on China. He is delaying any tariffs on EU vehicles imported into the US for 6 months, gave a big boost to the indices especially Dax.

Dow and Dax reset to the new daily pivot overnight and could break either up out of the 10 day channel or down to confirm it. Ftse overshot to the down side and Nikkei looks balanced.

Ok got ya, the gap has to fill. So are you bullish in mind of the upper gap or bearish in mind of the lower gap? Personally I think to far to fast, but I follow inter day trends so I bend with the trend Day to Day.

The indices are look to reset to the daily pivot support to try to launch another bounce up. Nothing much on the calendar today but may see end of week flows out of longs later in the day.

Everything gone a bit quiet, China's PBOC statement about the Yuan this morning (see 'something interesting' thread) has caused uncertainty.

End of week and worth pulling back to see where we are and all the indices are on an up leg having retested key support on Monday in what is basically a period of consolidation awaiting a breakout. 

Given that the Dow entered consolidation from below the normal expectancy would be a break to the upside but given that the upside is all time highs means that normalcy doesn't apply. The market is waiting for new news to give direction.

25956 is the test for Dow today if it can keep this upward momentum since 13th May going.

Ftse is looking to breakout above 7360 with tested support below at 7306. Dax looking to test the recent high at 12317.

    • Read an interesting article on Yahoo finance which showed the majority of gains in the Nasdaq is down to the big 6 tech firms and without them there would have been no gain in the Nasdaq since 2016 and the majority of movement is down to the price of 6 companies. It would appear, in the search for dividend and profit everyone has opted to buy Amazon, Facebook, Apple, Alphabet, Microsoft and Netflix, as a herd reaction. No one has stopped to question whether they are over-bought at all, or if they may have questioned that premise, the thought would have been quickly cast asunder in the wake of evidence to the contrary (prices of the big 6 only bulldozing up). This may have lead to a false narrative, where we may consider everything is rosy in the garden of equities and everything  will all be alright soon, as long as the big 6 keep on growing, even if much other evidence suggests the contrary. Which it is. From employment to housing arrears, from relationships with allies and perceived foes to actual communal transmission of Covid 19. From stratospheric  Fed and govt debt to trade imbalance, from irrational exuberance to actually facing reality now. Instead of relentless optimism, relentless realism.  It would appear we are in for another week of exuberance. The sun is shining, people are out enjoying themselves and one could be forgiven for thinking the crisis is over and we can all go back to doing exactly what we were doing before this inconvenience struck. Reassessment can be inconvenient too. No one likes to be wrong, (though we often are). Least of all the Potus, who's principle motivation may not be the well being and good health of his people, more the well being of the economy, more specifically the price of equity. He encourages more exuberance even when evidence may suggest otherwise.  It is earnings season for equities, the reports, many of  which would make grim reading in more sober times, will be ignored for even the merest hint that the future will be brighter or it wont get any worse, from a reaction to Remdesivir (which appears to improve more than it harms, improves 9 harms 3...a litigation lawyers dream) to any glimmer of positive data.  Then one looks at the price of Tesla and realise the equity markets really have gone potty. Look at Tesla's numbers and its price makes no sense at all. Herd irrational exuberance in a nutshell. VW and Toyota p/e  far less than 10, now look at Tesla and you know its share price is on steroids and anything else the doctor will prescribe.  I recently drove to the New Forest to visit a good friend. It is normally a patience sapping experience, but left on Friday 7 pm and arrived at 9;10 pm in record breaking totally unbelievable 2 hours 10 minutes. In July. Normally, it takes at least 3 hours. Roads are still quiet. Which leads me to question again the premise of a "V" shaped recovery  and consider whether those that suggested a "V" shaped recovery actually have very poor hand writing and their version of a V more closely resembles a flattish tick or even a very sloppy W. I digress, the point being there has to come a time when the US has to take off its rose tinted glasses and see the reality of Now for what it is, rather than wishing it all away for a brighter tomorrow. Might not happen this week as equities push higher but you can't escape it forever. Can you?
