  • 10 year US rates :¬† This is the conundrum :¬† IF the bulls are right and stocks have further to go up then bonds are a total sell.¬† ¬†But as bonds fall and yields rise that will put pressure on stocks to go down unless earnings can rise in line with the rising bond yield.¬†¬†
  • If the goldy¬†locks economy of low rates and low growth is right and rates have further to fall, then US stocks are over priced.....Because expectations are built in for endless rises in stock earnings....The US economy is at full employment...with ultra low rates......
  • .So what happens when ....employment starts to rise.....dropping rates...has nt worked so far to re-inflate the economy..Fiscal measures....The US gov deficit is at full stretch.....They have nt fixed the roof while the sun shone have they ????¬† I think the US and Fed has painted itself into a corner which they ca nt get out of.....Remember Goldy locks , has 3 bears !!¬†¬†10-year-treasury-bond-rate-yield-chart-2020-01-20-macrotrends.thumb.png.33dff1bd3589338f9e686db13e1cd98c.png

Just remember that US index futures will close early, 18:00 GMT. The will reopen at 23:00 GMT. 

Cash indices will be priced but they will have out of our hours spread. 

This is due to the US federal holiday marking the birthday of Dr Martin Luther King Jr.

This will make you laugh; 

[SAN DIEGO (Reuters)¬†‚Äď The Federal Reserve could find itself fighting too-low inflation for years to come, San Francisco Federal Reserve President Mary Daly said on Friday, and may need a new policy framework to lift inflation back up to the Fed‚Äôs 2% goal.

‚ÄúWe don‚Äôt have a really good understanding of why it‚Äôs been so difficult to get inflation back up,‚ÄĚ Daly said at the annual American Economics Association meeting in San Diego.]

 

Turns out the top economists in the country don't understand how modern economics work, but never mind Modern Monetary Theory is coming.

Ronald Reagan said back in the 80's that the national debt was big enough to take care of itself¬†and guess what, he was right.¬†ūüė≥

Slow day today ūüėĎ

it was slow especially the afternoon with no US session but the market held up well enough and still looks in reasonable shape to test recent highs on the proper week start up tomorrow.

They all followed Dow when it dropped on the 1am hourly bar, the only thing I can find that it's attributed to is news SARs type virus outbreak in China has reportedly spread to other countries.

The problem with a health issues like a SARS outbreak is that it is un-quantifiable...and the markets have been priced for perfection and as we all know perfection does nt happen..

I've still not got involved here. the move to catch was overnight, now on the dax price is mulling around S2 and the weekly chart resistance level (red) so recently broken and the next direction is not clear. need to see a break in either direction.

Agreed.  Doesn't look like there's a good chance to trade yet, in either direction :(

    • I call it a wash and rinse - it happens often at swing lows and swing highs, as they are the obvious place for stops to be placed at, the "science" of the markets means that these places are often hit because of what the market HAS to do to move. ¬† ¬†

    • Hello, my 2 pence worth, On markets like the FTSE it would be good to have an option to switch off the simulated candles, I.e¬†only between 0800 and 1630¬†being displayed. ¬†The trading out of hours is not for me and I find it quite tiresome having to trawl through the charts of simulated candles. Second pence worth, When IG tv launches it brings up a box over the deal ticket and has on numerous occasions caused me to miss the moment to place trade, Same when a trade is closed due to hitting limits or stop losses. I either have to manually¬† click on the X to close before I place a trade. Really really¬†frustrating. Apart from this I am happy with IG and the service I have received to date.¬†I am not on IG's¬†payroll lol
