After yesterday's London session dive the Dow has regained Tuesday's levels with the Nikkei not far behind so looking for similar progression in the Dax and FTSE in this morning's session.

The Dax and FTSE failed to keep step with the Dow yesterday and remain near the lows of their recent ranges while the Dow looks to break out of the top on it's own, the lack of EU and UK follow on is presumably the result of the Turkey situation and the large exposure of Euro banks. With the Dow being a leading index and that link temporarily broken the short term direction for the Dax and FTSE is not clear.

Trump in the news again and the markets wobble. The Dax , Dow and FTSE appear to have put in a short term base and look to be testing the highs following Nikkei but they are very nervous. 

The Euro open is suggesting a retest of the lows but will wait for the London open for confirmation as to direction.

Dow, Dax and FTSE remain stuck in this tight range of the last 4 or 5 days waiting for something to break it, China trade news presumably.

Dow makes the big break and looks now to be eyeing up the January high which is over 600 points away so likely be some bumps on the way. Dax will have the same problem reaching for 12887.

Tomorrow is month end and end of the holiday season, as things pick up will the early signs point to a break up and out of the weekly chart in the previous post, or head back down?

On the daily chart Dow and Dax have stalled the last few days. FTSE testing recent support and the Nikkei not will to go higher alone.

Dax stuck in it's recent range with the Euro open 1 hour bar suggesting a retest of 12497 initially.

The 4 hour charts show all 4 indices trying to pick themselves up off support and the biggest risk (China- US trade war) subdued for the temporarily (Trump doesn't start tweeting til about 1pm UK time). So in the morning session will be looking for Dax continuation towards 12577 though being a Friday and month end and with a lot of uncertainty about it may well get a bit dull.

So that call went wrong very quickly. Dax immediately dropped to challenge and break support on the London open and is now in the middle of a congestion zone the bottom of which is around 12290. Not dull at all but not clear what it's going to do from here.

I got stopped out yesterday at the SP500 after going long, I re-entered now.

Given the political news oriented around the tariffs, and the positive sentiment on a Canadian deal and solid fundamentals in the U.S. I only trade long, and enter long positions when the VIX shoots higher.

DAX and the E.U. is a different beast when it comes to GDP growth versus the U.S. with core inflation at 1%.

Increasing chatter on twitter that a US deal with Canada looks increasingly likely by today's deadline.

The 8am London open yesterday saw the Dax run straight down nearly 250 points before staging a pullback. The 7am European open today Dax is testing yesterday's low - 12161, below that is the weekly chart support level at 12110 (red).

The other three are also looking for support with the FTSE trying to hang on to 7436 but a test of 7417 looks likely.

Interesting split as the Dax and FTSE break below their weekly support levels while Dow and Nikkei remain in touch with their highs. Early price action this morning suggests the Dax wants to go lower, the desync between the US and Euro/UK indices is a bit disconcerting. As mentioned in the APAC brief there is no scramble to safe havens in the US as yet so it's wait and see. NFP tomorrow may rearrange things.

Dow continues in it's bull flag while the others are still looking for support. A look at the monthly charts shows a different perspective where the Dow is within striking distance of the highs while Dax, FTSE and Nikkei regroup.

The recent disconnect between the US and other DM continues while EM continue their slide. If this is all down to trade wars it's seems clear who must be winning but that's not the whole story. A while back in another thread I relayed a report I had read about the improved repatriations of US company profits back into the US thanks to Trump's cutting of corporation tax. I'd seen a report that the figure had risen from $38 Bln previous to nearer $380 Bln for 2017. But a few days ago I read a Bloomberg news report that repatriations were $380 Bln (up from $50 Bln average over last 5 years)   for Q1 of 2018.

Admittedly I may have misread along the way but whatever, there is a lot of money coming out of other markets back into the US economy.

 So looking at the weekly charts again, from a technical stand point. Dow is looking to test the highs 26166 and 26703.

Dax looks to test the low of 11690, FTSE the low of 7094, Nikkei the low of 21834 and 21451.

Interesting pin bar double bounce off recent support for both Dax and FTSE daily candles while Dow also tested support before heading back up.

Super Thursday tomorrow with EU and BoE rate decisions and mon policy statements.

FTSE and GBPUSD will continue to be at risk from Brexit statements and increasing Tory rebellion against May's leadership.

Mostly doji candles for yesterday, Nikkei shifts higher, Dax and FTSE rest on support while Dow presses resistance. Super Thursday, no change in rates expected. BoE vote count and Mon Pol statement at 12:00 and Draghi presser at 1:30.

    • I want to believe that, even if we had viruses for many years and we lived with them like nothing happened, this one is killing more people than it should. At least is what reports are saying. That is why countries are forcing lock-downs. Think about that a lock-down is going to extend the furlough policies all over the world again. I don't think a government want to pay that money out to citizens if they don't have to, and companies are going to have to close business for good if we have a second lock-down everywhere. I agree with the statement that we had many corona-viruses before i.e. common flu, but why now governments are taking these draconian measures to force people into a quarantine? If we had the same dangerous viruses always around why are they now locking people at their homes. Did they not care about people before? I think the virus is way more deadly than they tell us and that is why people are not really that scared of it. If we had all the information that is available to professionals we would be really scared and people would lock themselves without waiting any government to tell them. My wife is Chinese and I get their news first hand. They are not reporting what is really happening since the very beginning and it is really hard to trust the Chinese government  on anything related to this virus. They still have the problem there, they keep locking entire cities down for short periods the minute they see anything. It is not reported here in the news but every week they lock people down at their homes.  This virus is really nasty and if locking people down is going to stop it, let's do it. 
    • I agree with 99% of this - the current strain is virtually exact to a strain found in 2012 by a group of Chinese scientists, then when 6 of them died from exposure the virus was sealed and sent to Wuhan I challenged David Icke  to prove the excess deaths were'nt excess deaths, from the info I looked into I'm satisfied the virus is genuine and I'm probably one of the worlds biggest sceptics  From a lock down point of view I'd of thought the perfect place to test out compliance of mass herds would be the USA - hasn't happened strongly enough for me to be concerned but it shown those that could create such circumstances how compliment most people are.  
    • Corona virus has been with us since forever we just never mass tested before. There are no extra deaths this year than any other and it's the same unfortunate types who die of corona virus every year (over 80's with pre-existing conditions 90% of cases). Corona virus is always circulating in the population most people being completely unaware and asymptomatic, herd immunity is built and the virus mutates or dies out. Tests just show you have been exposed to the virus at some stage which could have been months ago and you were most likely asymptomatic. Vaccines don't work for corona virus because they mutate very quickly which is why there is no vaccine for the common cold (a corona virus). And why flu shots don't work very often because they are based on the previous years dominant strain not the current year's (the mass manufacturing would be too late). Covid 19 has already been mutating and the last studies I saw several weeks ago confirmed that as usual a particularly nasty strain becomes less deadly with each new mutation. Another 30,000 people will die next year from respiratory infections as it's the 5 year rolling average (covid 19 or not), weather it'll be covid 19 next year or another strain no one knows but they will keep the covid ball rolling anyway. So all in all it looks like lockdown til the end of time.
