Summary:  Risk On Seems the Play


Good Morning, 

Risk continues to soar, US Indexes could rise again with the Dow up 0.3%, the S&P 500 +0.4% and the Nasdaq 0.7%. The S&P breaches the 200 Day Moving average, a bullish signal. All three were up for the week with the Nasdaq up almost 5%. The GER40 has entrenched itself above 15k to trade at 15120. Tesla fell on reported high discounts of up to 20%.

US 10 Year rates are at 3.5% and the yield curve remains inverted with the 2 Year at 4.22.

The USD Index is trading around 102, EURUSD 1.0840, GBPUSD 1.2235 and EURCHF is holding above parity as well as the 200 Day moving average, it is trading at 1,0035 The Japanese yen gained by over 3% against the USD last week, moving from highs of 132.87 to lows of 127.46 on Friday and 128. 09 now,  It will remain in focus this week as well as BOJ meets for the first time this year and speculation about a further policy tweak is rife, according to our Asian team.

Gold and Silver could both gain on Friday and are at 1915 and 24.35, Oil is meandering the 80.

The overall sentiment seems to be that everybody seems to be expecting a recession that has not yet arrived, and traders celebrate the rate cuts that have not yet materialized – a rather curious setup that is difficult to trade. While markets remain nervous, the  risk on trend seems to be firming - keep your risk under control though. 

This wee we are expecting some earnings and economic data of medium importance, the World Economic Forum in Davos is back after Covid and comments from the participants may move the markets. Among participants are business leaders, Central Bank Heads and politicians from all over the world along with various celebrities.  The topic this year is  “Cooperation in a Fragmented World’
