Poor old Powell, even when he stands stock still he can't get it right.

Ger manu PMI at 8:55 and Eur PMI at 9:00 today. BoE rate decision and mon pol statement at 12:00 and the presser at 12:30.

Dow looks to have strong support immediately under as does Dax but Ftse looks a bit vulnerable, this 7351 is a previous high from March 21st which may serve.

So, after a large drop down yesterday and today for the indices taking price back down to those of 2 weeks ago the S&P has found support at 2900 and has hoisted itself back up above the 2912 key support level with just under an hour to go before the US market close.

H4 chart.

Looking at the daily charts and the correction of the last 2 days doesn't look too dramatic but today should be telling with the NFP data this afternoon.

9:30 GB services PMI,

10:00 Eur CPI and PMI,

1:30 US NFP,  AHE and the Employment Rate.

3:00 US non-manu PMI.

Reminder that the ADP nfp earlier in the week was a massive beat of nearly 100k

The S&P puts in a doji daily bar yesterday supported at the level of consolidation from a week ago. The overarching theme remains bullish for the indices.

Worryingly this is usually about the time Trump chooses to ratchet up the trade war threats though it might be different this time

And there he goes again, Trump's tweets of the last hour sends weekend wall street down. Also along the lines mentioned in the Bannon vid above.

Markets feeling the Trump effect once again (see posts above). Currently looking to secure support, Dow and Ftse seem to have found something but Dax still trying to feel the bottom.

The S&P and a strong bull day and the highs are looking very vulnerable. The big corporate earnings reports are out of the way, good recent GDP and NFP figures, not much on the calendar ahead, so expecting to see a run up this week (Trump tweets notwithstanding).

Another dip down after US market close on basically what was confirmation of Trump's weekend tweets of a tariff increase being imposed on Friday. This is inline with Bannons comments in the interview posted in this thread last week, and is said to be a response to China attempting to renegotiate past agreements. 

Difficult to say which way the markets will break from here but the targets are clear. Nikkei looking the most pessimistic at the moment while Ftse is the least concerned.

Dow looks to have found support at the old weekly chart resistance level (red) while Dax is sitting on it's daily chart support level (orange).

7:00 Ger factory orders. 10:00 EU econ forecasts.

Indices get a big bounce off news that China has not cancelled it's planned US visit for the 11th round of trade talks on May 9 - 10.

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.

Yes but so far it's a fair attempt to lift up off support.

    • Where can I find a list of the US ETFs which are tradable with IG? I can't receive market data for those via the API (same as for stocks), correct?
    • US Dollar - The World's Reserve Currency: The US Dollar as the world's reserve currency is an issue which causes mix reactions and thoughts. When the US Dollar  became the reserve currency there was no Euro or Chinese Renminbi. Since their introduction it has eaten into the US Dollar's world dominance and as a result has led to it declining from the 70%-80% range to the 60% range. If one remembers, the UK Pound Sterling, once was the world's reserve currency but it now only accounts for around 4% at the moment. So things can change and it is not a given that the US Dollar will remain the world's reserve currency forever. It will have to earn that right which it may well do.  The US Dollar’s share of global central bank reserves hit a 5-year low, according to the International Monetary Fund. Now is this the beginning of a significant change here? Is the US, the world superpower it once was? There is no doubt it is the mightiest country in the world at this moment in time in terms of economics but imagine if the US Dollar lost its reserve currency status. This would have a large impact on the economics within the US.  I do not envisage the US losing its status anytime soon but if things continue to get worse and other countries find ways to conduct international transactions / transfers / payments without the need to hold US Dollars, and an alternative arises then who knows. 
    • Going back to my FTSE analysis I see things as follows: 2 scenarios present themselves, other than fresh ATHs that is: 1) the move down to the turn on Thursday was a wave 1 (blue) off a larger scale wave 2 (purple) that should retrace, maybe in a complex fashion with a lot of whip saw price action maybe not, let's see; 2) the recent rally and drop to a new low was a 1-2 (red), which indicates a much stronger leg down is immanent. The #2 scenario would only be valid if price holds below the previous high (circa 7300).  I favour the #1 scenario. There was PMD on the 4H chart at wave 1 (blue), which suggests this is a turning point.  Also the 4H chart shows a 1-5 wave down to the 1 blue, which would be motive and suggests a trend change to the bearish side. There was strong NMD at wave 2 (Purple) which is consistent with a large scale retrace move. Just as with the US large caps, after the stop and turn up there was a sharp retrace drop to the Fib 76/78% zone before the current rally.  As the FTSE was in out of hours at the end of the week this market has not rallied as hard as the US markets.  Also we may yet see fresh ATHs on US large caps while the FTSE100 only puts in a counter trend rally. If we do see fresh ATHs on US large caps and only a retrace on FTSE and probably Dax and Nikkei as well then comparing these markets will be instructive for calling that top on US large caps.  We may, alternatively, see only a retrace on US large caps too if the top of the market in already in. Conclusion: we can anticipate a bullish period on all major indices BUT should guard against a quick reversal on FTSE 100 that would set up scenario #2.  Either way this market looks to have topped out so the coming months though to the Autumn will be critical to deciding things on all indices, and likely quite a few other markets. I am Long the FTSE 100, coincident with my Dow Longs and will swing this up for now but my bearish bias for the long term will keep we watchful for a break down of this rally and I will not be pyramiding this one, far too risky until things are resolved.
