Inside knowledge of vaccine or cure for Covid-19?


Recommended Posts

Markets are cruising upwards for no apparent reason, totally ignoring the growing unemployment rates across the world and business failures. Thus, ignoring all fundamentals. Extrapolate out share buybacks and cancellation of dividends and stock markets would be much lower than what it was pre-Covid19 bear market.

I just can't see why the markets are rebounding unless some have inside knowledge of a vaccine or cure in the pipeline in the very near future. Anyone has a rational argument for the rebound in the stock markets?

The markets rebounded simply because there was no new bad news, everything that could be shut down had been shut down, so the market started to look towards the end of the shut down. Soon business will restart and begin hiring again. 

The market is not the economy, it's a front running discount mechanism for the perceived future economy. Currently it's consolidating while waiting for lockdowns to end and will look to rise as death rates reduce bring the end of lockdown closer.

#Austria will be the first European country to start exiting the #coronavirus lockdown already on 14.04, with a plan to fully restart the economy on 01.05., according to @sebastiankurz

There is just one major issue. Countries which have been in lockdown reopening their borders will import cases like what has happened in China, Japan, South Korea and Singapore. Japan is expected to call a National Emergency very soon. So how can the global economy recover quickly as 2nd and 3rd wave spikes will occur. Any chance of travel picking up to anywhere near pre-Wuhan virus pandemic? I certainly can't see that the global economy can recover quickly.

    • I am a beginner, and I must say, there are a lot of rules to the trading game that one must abide by if they want to be successful.   Here, the writer mentions several basic rules for day vs swing trading.  However, I find that often times, the reasoning for these rules is not as  obvious for a beginner as it may be for an expert.   The 'why' factor if I may. For example, why must you have a large capital to trade with as a day trader? Because your positions must be large so that a small change in price will be augmented and turned into a large profit. Also, with such high risk, the margin will be specially high, given the trader is taking up large positions at a time.  Without a large amount of capital, positions may be forced to close due to funds being below margin requirements.  When this happens, you can expect to lose tons of cash, fast.  I learned the hard way. All the best, David Franco      
    • USDJPY has been regaining ground this week, but inflation differentials and a three-month trend signal the potential for another turn lower Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 27 January 2023  USDJPY set for third monthly decline The USDJPY pair has been on the slide since its October high, with the historical 147.63 resistance level ultimately marking the end of the dramatic 21-month rally that saw the pair gain almost 50%. Much of that came through a period that saw US inflation soar as Japanese prices remain subdued. That disparity remains, but the direction of travel has certainly shifted as US CPI declines and Japanese price growth gradually ticks up. The overnight 4.3% figure for Tokyo core CPI represents a four-decade high, with the nationwide figures likely to follow on. The chart below highlights how USDJPY has been heavily correlated with the now tightening gap between US and Japanese inflation. However, it is more evident when shifting that inflation differential forward by seven-months. That close correlation highlights the potential for further downside as long as prices continue to trend in a similar manner. Source: ProRealTime Looking at the daily chart, the recent rebound has taken price up towards the top-end of a descending channel and Fibonacci resistance. This highlights the bearish pattern that has been playing out, with lower highs and lower lows in place in recent months. Unless we see price rise through trendline and 134.77 resistance, another turn lower looks likely for this pair. Source: ProRealTime
