FEAR NOT Brave Investors :

OPEC, Trade Wars, Inflation, and Wages

The mid terms have come and gone, the Democrats won the house, the Republicans got more control of the senate, rhetoric and partisanship went up a notch, so much for the wish of rationality!  Oil continued it's dump, now down over $17 or 20% in just 5 weeks since the Iran conflagulation with COT showing longs are at their lowest since Jan 2016. The S&P 500 index rallied after the mid terms but Italy’s debt and Brexit continued to throw currency markets. Iran, OPEC’s No. 3 producer got hit by U.S. sanctions on Sunday Nov. 4 but most of their clients got waivers for 6 months, hence oil's fall after the POTUS tough talk on Iran turned out not to be the case for now, watch this space with OPEC not happy with WTI down under $60 and Brent under $70,.  Those emerging markets continue to overhang, particularly the Fragile 5 and Argentina. 

Despite the correction, politics and volatility rationality was not a feature of the week with valuations still in the stratosphere and no fear of risk. Real earnings are actually negative year on year with the stock market at lofty levels and the Fed raising rates. I repeat, if you wanted to play in the big room at Vegas, you are living it.  Understand risk and the madness of crowds for your own sanity and wealth.

The week ahead will focus on Italy, who has until November 13 to resubmit its tax and spending proposals to Brussels who warned Rome that it will breach the EU’s 3 per cent deficit limit in 2020 and come close to doing so next year. After a higher than expected PPI in both Germany and the U.S., inflation and wage growth figures take centre stage with CPI reports. Following last week's FOMC US Federal Reserve chair Jay Powell and Dallas Fed president Robert Kaplan will discuss national and global economic issues in Texas on Wednesday. 

We will get updates on the health of the US consumer with retail sales due. Over in China we have Alibaba's Singles Day shopping event on Sunday.  Last year $BABA sold  $25.4 billion in the single-day event last year with over 777 million parcels shipped.

Earnings wise we have been seeing the affect of Tariffs and the Chinese slowdown impact on demand and increasing costs. Higher raw materials costs, wages and interest rates are hanging over margin and earnings forecasts. Earnings season is winding down with just 13 companies on the S&P 500 expected to report results. Walmart is due to report, further giving us a guage on American consumers. Other earnings to watch include Applied Materials, Autohome, Canada Goose, Cisco Systems, Home Depot, Macy's, Nordstrom, Nvidia, Tilray, and Viacom.

Earnings last week saw a mixed bag with modest surprises but some big price falls among  Activision BlizzardDropboxSquare, Take-Two Interactive, The Trade Desk. Energy earnings included Devon Energy; Diamond Offshore Drilling; Diamondback Energy; Golar LNG; PDC Energy, Laredo Petroleum, Marathon Oil; and Sempra
