A bit of calm in the markets this week but watch the USD and upcoming earnings season for new opportunities
Peter Hanks joins me to discuss the US equity markets, rising USD back over 10 on the USD index, and the oil market continued weakness.
The US markets have been relatively quiet this week compared to the prior weeks. However watching some specific sectors like the currency markets are showing that fear remains and when it comes to a crashing oil market we re not out of the woods. Finally we will have earnings season kicking off in under 2 weeks. This will an earnings seasons for the record book – not in a good way.
After extreme levels in volatility and central bank policies are we finally seeing some calm enter the markets?
Peter Hanks, Analyst at DailyFX kicks off today by looking at the US markets and some related factors that are showing fear has dissipated to a small degree.
14 central banks have cut rates and the major central banks are aggressively buying assets which is helping but even the news of California going into lock down is not forcing a sell in US stocks. Maybe the worst is behind us – Maybe not though…
A Comprehensive Market Wrap – US Markets, the VIX, Gold, and Bonds
Chris Temple wraps up today for us with his thoughts on the big moves in US stocks, gold, bonds, and the VIX. One aspect of today to note is the fact that selling or buying did not pick up during the day. Most markets that we watch started the day either way up or way down and stayed in a relatively tight range throughout the day.
As Chris notes throughout the interview let’s see what the headlines bring for the rest of the week.
Hour 1 – A Focus on US Market Health, New Fed Nominees, and Base Metal Investments
Segment 1 – Jesse Felder kicks off the show by sharing why his main focus is the US markets and volatility. He weighs sentiment, fundamentals, and technical factors in this segment.
Segment 2 – Chris Temple joins me for a look at the two Federal Reserve nominees Christopher Waller and Judy Shelton. There are some interesting comments about the type of policy the Fed could shift towards.
Segment 3 – Dave Erfle and I shift focus to the resource sector. We discuss where Dave sees value in metals stocks as the gold stocks continue to lag.
Segment 4 – Adventus Mining has been quietly de-risking an interesting base metals asset in Ecuador. With a busy 2020 ahead, including a large exploration drill program, Christian Kargl-Simard President and CEO of Adventus shares all the details you need to know for this year.
The bullishness continues for US markets, but is it justified?
There’s no denying that the US markets have been on quite the run to close out 2019. Whether we attribute it tot he Fed injecting capital into the repo market or some better trade comments a lot of money that was on the sidelines is now in the equity markets.
Chris Temple joins me for a discussion focused on the overall health of the markets while also touching on volatility as the VIX is below 12 today. As much as the markets should have a very natural pullback optimism can carry these things way further than expected.
History shows volatility will be picking up this month
Peter Hanks, Daily FX Analyst joins me to share some recent research he has done on the VIX and general volatility for the month of December. We have been talking a lot about the speculator short position in the VIX but this month could force them to unwind these positions if history is any indication.
