Summary:  Calm except Nvidia and Silver

Good morning,

Except for Silver and Nvidia, markets seem to be almost hibernating. The US500 gained 0.02%,  the NASDAQ100 0.32%, the Dow gave up 0.055%, the GER40 and the Eurostoxx slightly more than 0.5% The NASDAQ Composite Index closed above 17.000 for the first time, while The Vix remains near the lows at app 12. 

Nvidia rose 7% and Apple is worth watching as iPhone sales in China surged 52% in April from a year earlier. Gamestop gained almost 25% yesterday, showing meme stocks are still a thing.

Silver broke the 32 level and seems to be on track to test the 32.50 – the break is needed for the next leg higher BUT the big question is if sentiment or data will support the move. Precious Metals have been very insensitive to the higher for longer narrative and the reaction to the PCE will be very interesting. Silver`s implied volatility is above 30% at 32.50.

Yields traded higher after hawkish comments and a disappointing bond auction yesterday, 10 years rose to 4.55%. EURUSD fell to 1.0845, GBPUSD is trading at 1.2750 and USDJPY 157.10. The Australian inflation came higher and AUDUSD felt o 0.6648. The USD Index rose to 104.68

The IMF changed it`s growth forecast for China to 5% for 2024 from previously 4.6% after the higher-than-expected GDP of 5.3% in Q1.

Redmond Wrote a good analysis of Japanese Equities: Understanding the Surge in the Japanese Equity Market and Corporate Share Buybacks

The market seems too complacent in my view, at one point we should break out of the current ranges and see a spike of volatility. This week would be the perfect timing with the EU and US Inflation data but that of course does not mean it will happen. Trade carefully!
