Summary:  Doom and Gloom continues to drive


Good Morning

Risk Off continues to dominate markets with yields rising, the USD rising and Equities falling. Asian shares fell to 30 month lows and Europe and the US are under pressure as well. The Japan 225 is now trading at 26070, the US 500 at 3630 , the US Tech 100 at 11180 and the GER 40 is meandering 12000. Key Levels for the Ger 40 ate 11508 and 11323.

The USD Index rose to 115, EURUSD at 0.9555, GBPUSD at 1.0682 and USDJPY 144.70, USDCHF is nearing parity at  0.9950. Gold and Silber are trading lower at 1624 and 18.15.

There are leaks in the gas-pipelines to Europe, and it is suspected that targeted attacks are the cause.

There is little to say except that a combination of rate fears as well as rising rates along worries about the energy crisis in Europe drive fear and it is difficult to foresee the turning point. A good example is the GFK Consumer confidence at -42.5, a new record low, a new Reuters poll shows that analysts are now expecting even higher grates than previously priced in,  45 of 83 economists, predicted the fed funds rate peaking at 4.50%-4.75% or higher in Q1 2023.

A turnaround is only likely to happen when the rate expectation shifts to lower rates again and that seems not to be likely at the moment as most central banks are seen hawkish and are expected to hike in their next meeting – except for Japan, Brazil and Turkey.

Trade safely and consider options for portfolio protection if not already done.
