FEAR NOT Brave Investors

Jackson Hole Cowboys

 Strange times But remember The Joker once served as the Iranian ambassador for the United Nations.

Jackson Hole, US Politics, Stimulus

The Week That Was:


  • A big week for the S&P 500 finally recovering its losses from the pandemic selloff and setting new all-time highs as beneficiaries of the Fed’s easy policies and low interest rates. Apple became the world’s first $2 trillion public company and Tesla went over $2000.
  • Gold futures settled $0.50 lower to $1,947/oz, hampered slightly by continued gains in the dollar. The U.S. Dollar Index holds gains of about 0.6% to 93.34..
  • We are seeing more of the bull mania after the Dow ended the second quarter with a 17.8% gain, the biggest quarterly rally since the first quarter of 1987, when it ripped up 21.6%. The S&P 500 had its biggest one-quarter surge since the fourth quarter of 1998, soaring nearly 20%. The Nasdaq Composite jumped 30.6% for the quarter, its best quarterly performance since 1999.
  • Stock valuations, as measured by forward price-to-earnings ratios are near their highest level since the 2000 dot-com boom.


  • The US deals with a number of pharmaceutical giants have topped roughly $10.79 billion as part of Operation Warp Speed, a program led by several departments within the federal government to accelerate the development, manufacturing, and distribution of vaccines and treatments to fight the coronavirus.
  • The operation aims to provide at least 300 million doses of a coronavirus vaccine by January 2021. The companies are Moderna Johnson & Johnson Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline Pfizer and BioNTech Novavax and AstraZeneca
  • Hopes and fears of reopening can outweigh mixed earnings results. No surprise after increased testing, weeks of protesting, people in large airconditioning indoors we have record daily U.S. cases. The U.S. reported 1000 deaths 4 days in a row with coronavirus cases,
  • There does appear to a concerted effort to put the blame on an economy reopening and miraclously the mass ongoing priotests have nothing to do with that. Take that for what it is worth. There is little mention of the younger age group in the new cases and much lower mortality rate. Fear is the feature. Use commonsense in your own protection, spreading and decision making.


  • Geopolitical tensions with China and India are on the rise as China increases military hardware near the border. 
  • China ordered the U.S. to close its consulate in Chengdu in response to the U.S. ordering China to close its consulate in Houston
  • China tightened its grip on Hong kong and threats with Taiwan continued.
  • Russia  is showing the affects of low energy prices, filtering into the socio economic dynamic
  • Brexit and the EU is bubbling along.
  • The US captured 4 Iranian oil tankers trafficking crude to Venezuela.

US Politics

  • Politics is expected to become a bigger focus in the markets, as the Republican convention gets underway Monday after this past week’s Democratic convention.
  • Democrats and Republicans have been far apart in terms of the contents of the package. Key is the $600 supplemental weekly aid for the unemployed that expired on July 31, and Republicans want to cut it to $200 a week while Democrats want to keep current levels.
  • The two parties are also still far apart on the size of the package, after initially starting out with Democrats at $3 trillion and Republicans with $1 trillion. US
  • President Trump signed an exective order to boost benefits by $300/week if individual states pay an extra $100/week.Additinally there was an order to defer payroll taxes The move also diminishes the urgency to make a deal.Talks for another Covid-19 relief package stalled on Friday..
  • New round of polls suggest Democrats are well ahead of  Trump in the November Preseidential election. Trump’s polling deficit is larger than any incumbent since George H.W. Bush in 1992.
  • Biden has said he would seek to raise the U.S. corporate tax rate from 21% to 28%, which could potentially eat into profits and weigh on stock prices

Economic highlights

  • Existing Home Sales for July, which soared 24.7% m/m to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.86 million  That is the largest monthly increase on record, eclipsing the prior record seen in June. Total sales in July were up 8.7% from a year ago.

Trade Wars

  • Trade talks between U.S. and China are still expected to recommit to deal. China has increased purchases of U.S. oil ahead of their trade deal review, according to Reuters.
  • US/Sino trade has the wobbles after China ordered the U.S. to close its consulate in Chengdu in response to the U.S. ordering China to close its consulate in Houston
  • Trump did say Phase 2 will be difficult and he sees the visrus more important then trade with China..
  • In addition to rising tensions with China, the United States Trade Representative said last month said that the USTR is considering a new round of tariffs on $3.1 billion in European exports from France, Germany, Spain and the U.K..


Oil and Gas

  • Crude oil continued to grind through a narrowing range. Monitor resistance for a breakout over $43 or a breakdown below its uptrend for a drop back below $35 towards its rising 50-day moving average.
  • Natural gas futures continued to rally on hot weather, near record long spec positions and on two tropical storms that are heading into the Gulf of Mexico that could make landfall early Wednesday.
  • One storm, Laura is tracking close to Florida, and a second storm named Marco looks to be heading across the Yucatan Peninsula before entering the Gulf. It would be unprecedented in the era of satellites and modern hurricane tracking technology for two storms to arrive within 24 hours. The Weather Channel reports there was such an occurrence in September, 1933.
  • Oil also got support from Baker Hughes reported U.S. oil and natural gas rigs operating fell back to an all-time low for eighteen consecutive weeks..

Expect the Fed Stability Report warning on what happens if the pandemic worsens to be the go tto by Fed speakers (We are all watching to see if I spike aftet the Floyd protests and riots with no social distancing).

The backdrop is the Covid-19 crisis. Despite that the stockmarket is up over 40% from lows and stubborn bears and bulls alike are frustrated based on cognitive biases.

We continually focus on overcoming our biases and as the accompanying chart highlights stocks and the economy are NOT the same thing despite what we are told by our influencers and biased or selective recalls.


On the Risk Radar

Fed Warnings on Possible Medium To Long Term Risks

Fed Financial Stability Report Risks May 2020

In todays sound bite, partisan world achieving full self-awareness has many roadblocks. Constantly we are faced by new biases from everything from the economy, geopolitics and the pandemic. We are trading in a fluid, constantly evolving world. Understand and admit you have biases is step one, with that be aware of mental obstacles that can be triggered. Remember we can’t fix what we don’t know. We aren’t all doctors when it comes to cures, sources and pandemics for one. We know we are living in a brutally divided political world and the upcoming presidential election will trigger biases. For your investing (and mental health) maintaining an open mindset, diversify your influener and media sources so you can not get caught with bias inertia or blindness.

Job Losses

The reality is we are experiencing unprecedented levels of unemployment claims. We continue to add over 1.2 million new jobless claims each week after the US Labor Department reported the jobless claims of over 47 million in just eleven weeks as the Coronavirus hits the economy. This sends the unemployment rate soaring to near 15%.

Yield Curve

The Fed QE infinity programme is a yield curve control policy with long government bond yields coming down. Bond supply and continued central bank resistance to more negative policy rates limits the move. Central banks have been cutting rates and adding liquidity to avoid systematic failure. Where to from here? 

November US Election

The upcoming presidential election is another risk with RealClearPolitics having President Donald Trump trailing former Vice President Joseph Biden by 8.1 points in the latest average of polls. A potential for a resurgence in Covid cases will see Trump not benefiting from an economic recovery, and as a result, that gives Biden a better chance of being elected. Biden is representative of uncertainty. Trump is likely to be pushed by Powell for more stimulus and Trump is likely to move on this with the threat of more economic damage.


Geopolitically the US-Sino rhetoric is heating up and spilling over into Hong Kong and beyond. We expect continued volatility with the engulfing uncertainty of the Coronavirus and in commodity markets, particularly in oil and other commodities, not to mention unrest in Iran, Libya and Iraq. 

Fat Tail Virus Risk

Historically bear market rallies are fast and furious, and we are at the beginning of an economic recession (depression). In 2008 we had a 20% and 25% bounce in the S&P 500 during the total 57% top to bottom price fall. For the virus we have the great unknown with medical expertise not at a consensus how the virus destruction and recovery will play out.

Will virus cases level off in late spring and vanish so things can get back to some sort of normality by late summer? Or will there be a second wave of cases during the autumn/winter, forcing new lockdowns or leading to fear and voluntary social distancing (a W-recession scenario). For how long are you immune after having had the virus, a long time or a couple of months? Will there be a vaccine and when?

Our best advice is stay rational and be prepared for many alternatives, either way. With crisis comes opportunity. From a market point of view this is not unprecedented, many other bubbles have popped with similar results. What is unprecedented is the pandemic, the mass media and social media fear mongering, the massive QE and printing and the strange era of entitlement and no responsibilty fed down from politicians to the youth of today for electoral purproses. Put all that together and we see the result.  Again this isn’t unprecendented just a different catalyst and fuel. Stay tuned. take a breath and think clearly. Oh and now we have the riots to throw on the kindling ….


Remember, nothing is as it seems.

Stay alert to the political and geopolitical shifts with the world in flux. Government policies related to the environment, trade and tech sit high on the watch list.  Political and economic agendas that Influence policy-making is top of the list. For the US it is not just external threats, including increased political tensions between countries but also internal threats highlighted by the partisan impeachment devide. 

Politics influence all, directly or indirectly.  The virus and psychological affect on domestic and trade relationships have the potential to impact growth strategies with unexpected consequences with this markets are also vulnerable.  In a  fully fledged stock mania, nothing matters until it does. That is the feral nature of greed. Was Coronavirus that dreaded black swan?

Behind it all is world wide low interest rates and QE pump priming by the world’s major central banks,  the Federal Reserve, Swiss National Bank and ECB all preached more of the same. This has just been ramped up a notch.

Meanwhile tje Fed is committed to about 50 Billion a day in repo, funds  into the system to maintain liquidity, in its not QE4 repo program.The consumer had been keeping the economy robust. How will they act to alleviate the panic of the market drop, this is essential given the security of the repos they have out.

“Negative yields on long-dated government securities are more reflective of distorted market conditions than of stronger sovereign credit profiles, Fitch Ratings says. Lower interest service costs support sovereign creditworthiness, but this must be weighed against the impact of the economic conditions leading to lower yields and historically high government debt levels in a number of countries.- Fitch”

The Week Ahead – Have a Trading Plan

In the new week we get to see the Fed’s annual Jackson Hole symposium ( virtual this year). Look for insight into what the central bank could do to help the economy. The keys may be in the Fed’s use of guidance and inflation targeting as a way to assure markets it will remain committed to easy policy until the economy can stand on its own. Federal Reserve kept rates unchanged at their July meeting, kept QE infinity open with TALF for open-ended Treasuries, MBS and corporate bonds in amounts needed. Fed will continue to buy paper at current pace of $120B/month of Treasuries and MBS combined. Compare that to $40B/month in QE3.

Politics will become a bigger focus in the markets as the Republican convention gets underway Monday after this past week’s Democratic convention.

There is some key data in the week ahead that should show how manufacturing and the consumer are faring. Durable good is reported Wednesday, while personal income and spending data is reported Friday. Consumer confidence is Tuesday and consumer sentiment is released Friday.

The jobs data is pertinent with the number of people filing for unemployment benefits edging higher, instead of falling back. Weekly jobless claims will be important Thursday to see if there’s a drop in continuing clams, after June’s employment report 

The latest Covid worries worry any rebound in the U.S. economy.  Improvements in some economic indicators, such as home sales, manufacturing activity and another larger than expected bounce in employment data last month, have bolstered investor confidence and helped extend the rally in stocks. Support in markets comes from the Fed’s balance sheet which has ballooned to $7.2 trillion, and last Wednesday the central bank committed to monthly purchases of $80 billion in Treasury securities and $40 billion in mortgage securities.

Will the markets remain fixated on the COVID-19 news such as the infections count update, vacinations and the like?

 There is some important data in the week ahead,

  • Monday: Chicago Fed National Activity Index
  • Tuesday: Philadelphia Fed nonmanufacturing S&P/Case-Shiller home prices, FHFA Home prices, New home sales, Consumer confidence, API Oil Inventories
  • Wednesday: US Mortgage Applications, Durable goods, EIA Crude Oil Invemtories
  • Thursday: US Weekly jobless claims, Virtual Fed Kansas City summit begins, Real GDP Q2 second reading, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell on monetary policy framework review – navigating the next decade, Pending home sales, EIA Natural Gas Storage
  • Friday: Virtual Kansas City Fed summit, Advance economic indicators, Consumer sentiment, Baker Hughes Oil Rig Count and CFTC Speculative net positions

For emerging markets the lower US dollar is helping the Fragile 5. Argentina and Turkey are still red letter risks with Covid however. Voters will also be going to the polls in Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand this year.

Over $4 trillion of EM debt matures by the end of 2020, of which around a third is denominated in foreign currency, according to the Institute of International Finance. Nevertheless Banks are telling investors to buy, buy, buy, who is selling you should ask? 

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.

Focus on yourself and what YOU CAN INFLUENCE, set your trading plan and goals in be set for 2019. One suspects it will be a year long Groundhog day for Trump, the GOP and the Democrats. We still have trade wars.

Given that is a known investors (and algos) will focus pn the conference calls and outlooks.  Everyone is expecting the worse. We will see critical updates on production in coronavirus impacted regions and if there is extended halting of operations weighing on multi-nationals.

S&P 500 Index via @KnovaWave

The SPX reacted off +2/8 #MurreyMath Daily after 5 waves & quickly came back to retest it. Double top i.e a competitive C or i ? Again it tested and held Tenkan Friday. Alternatives completed C Wave or a Wave 1. Support is Kijun and cloud and Chikou rebalance. Important to note the high was a retest of the initial breakdown .

The break up was from above the 200dma. The balance from sharp reversal after the initial 3 wave down from the SPX wave 5 extension as Covid19 fed impulse accelerated under the tenkan. From there we had seen the ABC or 1-2-3 spinning around the 61.8% of the move. Support began at the October 2019 lows. A manic wave 5 or 3 of some degree was a resolution for the ages. Note the 100% extension from the emotive element and MM levels when the spit kicks in.

 SPX D 8 21 2020

Weekly #SPX closed at MM +2/8 for 2nd week which is also breakdown retest. Major support is top of channel and Tenkan. Bulls looking for Tenkan to accelerate thru 200wma , bears failure. We look for 3 waves down and MM grid for wave clues. Keep an eye on the putcall ratio with recognition to the sheer size of contracts AND keep in mind the stimulus distortion. The spit per channel fractal and Adams rule launched back over the cloud where we were encased AND we are back testing it. Watch if a spit or clear break support as chickou rebalances

WTI D 8 21 2020

WTI after it’s huge run continues to rebalance chikou indicative of extreme crowd behavior in a series of fractals. We have completed 5 waves as marked, from here we watch 3 develop to confirm.

These are special times, recall “After we regained the pattern 261.8% from the extreme (-$40) move. The climax of the larger acceleration lower after broke the weekly uptrend, a fractal of the sharp and all the way to all time lows to negative pricing we have seen mirror replications.” Support is previous channels, tenkan and Kijun. Above we have 50wma and Murrey Math time and price Above we have 50wma and Murrey Math time and price.

 WTI W 8 21 2020

US Natural Gas (Henry Hub)

US Natural Gas continues to work the lows that were either (5) or (iii) of (5). After a b or ii down we have bounced over tenkan and Kijun into cloud. Key is that 3 wave low. Above top of cloud. So far consistent failed breaks despite the strength of spitting the previous low and -2/8 with an island reversal to test the Kijun and downtrend line but fell back to Tenkan The big question is was that a completed move down there or a 3? Support at cloud.

 NG D 8 21 2020

Natty continues in large sideways pattern between weekly kijun and tenkan as they suppress. Above Cloud and 50wma. Support is downward channel and previous low. Talking fractals, remember the tenkan/kijun kiss of death brought it down from the $2 range. Much work here churning away.

Gold (AUG) fell 0.11% to settle at $1,801.9 but gained 0.66% for the week kGold exudes strength after it back tested the previous wave 3 after finally cracked the Tenkan after correcting in 3 waves from 1556 to Murrey Math +3/8. In sight of the intraday high of $1765.43 reached on May 18. We have overcome the negative divergence between the weekly chikou, Silver spread and the recent highs. Support Tenkan & Kijun. From there does the 5 play out? Watch Fibs and chikou.
 Gold W 8 21 2020


Silver  did a fractal of the sharp C up to breakdown level above the cloud fed by divergence from gold reverting. no  Silver reverseds with much more violent impulse than gold . Given that we have to repsect this is a iii  but  here is also a chance this is an A

Currency Markets

Australian Dollar – AUDUSD

Aussie dollar continues higher after it competed 5 waves in emotive  fashion. with vigor spitting the 100% panic muster. It has closed over the 50 Wma in 5 waves Resistance cloud is a long way off.  Support Tenkan and Kijun. From here we watch for 2 or X

AUD W 8 21 2020

New Zealand Dollar – NZDUSD

The Kiwi mirrored the AUD and has closed over the panic breakdown (0%) correcting all of the panic muster wave. We are now above the Tenkan, which is pivotal. Resistance 50wma

NZD W 8 21 2020

Canadian Dollar – USDCAD

The Loonie continues to correct in ABC after spitting the 261% Fib & Weekly 8/8 after 5 waves lower. We closed at the old 100% 61.8% confluence. Use Fib s for support and resisitance until Tenkan and Kijun catch up, 

CAD W 8 21 2020

 Euro – EURUSD

The Euro tested and held both the channel and cloud spits after so many false breaks to close at its best level since the BRexit spike. We are still in 3 waves so we need to see development for continuation. Resistance is Fibs as marked.  Watch for impulse off Chikou rebalance and Kijun above. Again governed by EURGBP and Bund volatility. 

EUR W 8 21 2020

 EuroPound – EURGBP

Back testing top of outer band and tenkan of Brexit. Johnson price reaction.after its classic ABC out of failure following the X wave. Tenkan will give us a clue if normalcy is returning to the channel trade.

EURGBP W 8 21 2020

 Japanese Yen – USDJPY

Japanese Yen still stuck in channel trade, a series of failures and sharp bounces after X led 3 wave panic. Any change will come from the weekly Kijun Tenkan kiss. Use your #USDJPY Murrey 6/8 0/8 grid for now. #EURJPY #AUDJPY will determine risk on/off

JPY W 8 21 2020

 Mexican Peso USDMXN

The Peso has been correcting in ABC since it collapsed and spat 261% right back to the 100% Fib  We have seen violent moves with outisde uncertainty from oil and COVID19. Use the Gann octave and the extension fibs to help measure the noise. 

MXN W 8 21 2020

  Turkish Lire USDTRY

USDTRY after completing the large 5 waves corrected back to the channel acceleration point and finished testing Tenkan. Alternative is we are still in Wave 5 and this is another 1- Kijun support well above cloud  Impulse is needed to pull away from here.  Keep an eye on geopolitical risk factors.

 TRY W 8 21 2020


Nothing new for Bitcoin, more of the same as it continues to falter after 61.8% spit. Well under the tenkan and kijun. Needs to test downtrend for higher correction. Use your MM rules as algos control the herd here, support is the cloud – we said be wary of sharp ABC, 1-2 moves.
