Stocks continue the rally

Stocks continue the rally, taking the indexes higher yet again as investors/traders and algos don’t seem to care at all about the coronavirus at all. In fact, what I find very funny this morning is a quote in Wall Street Journal by RBC’s Global Macro Strategist, Peter Schaffrik: “The story in the market is the [...]

Let’s Recap

Let’s recap – just to make sure we are all on the same page: Friday night, US Stocks get slammed, falling more than 600 pts and sending warning signals that the coronavirus was getting worse. All day pundits on TV telling investors/traders to sit back, that this was different this time. It was not like [...]

New political risk – or not?

Chinese stocks, which got slammed on Monday, wiping out nearly $720 billion worth of value, did a complete 180 and rallied as a new day dawned over the region, reacting to the surge in shares out of Europe and the US on Monday. Overnight, investors/traders and algos attempted to make sense of the plunge that [...]

Markets continue to be on a “roller coaster”

Markets continue to be on a “roller coaster” as investors/traders/algos continue to consider all the implications of the coronavirus, BREXIT, GDP, reported at +2.1% beating the estimates of +2%, Oil, macro data, ongoing earnings, falling treasury yields, and the drama of the Trump Impeachment proceedings (this was more entertainment versus market moving reality TV). Recall [...]

Stocks are confused

The coronavirus continues to affect more people. The death toll is now 177 people and the number of infected people now stands at better than 7000! The FED leaves rates unchanged (expected), but warns of a global slowdown due to “the virus.” TSLA kills it, and the junkies can’t get enough, sending the stock up [...]

So stocks did bounce yesterday

So stocks did bounce yesterday, as global investors put any concerns over coronavirus onto the back burner, no longer fearful the way they were on Monday, when stocks got slammed. Suddenly, all of the fears of contagion suddenly disappeared, which goes to show you that so much of the action, both fear and euphoria, is [...]

This is a BIG week for the markets

**See my appearance on CNBC WorldWide Exchange this morning – click here…. In a complete about-face to what the Europeans did on Friday, where all of those markets ended the day higher by 1+% US indexes, got slammed. While they appeared to want to trend higher in the early morning, the tone quickly changed as [...]
