ROHR Price Trend Analysis Seminar: Origination and Expectations (Feb 17, 2021)
In light of many new or fledgling traders, and even some experienced investors, who are not familiar with foundation level trend analysis, we have decided to share parts of our long-established ‘Price Trend Analysis Seminar’. While we already had a very well regarded technical trend training regime for many years, our involvement with London financial services firms into their mid-1980s Big Bang deregulation meant we had to explore the macro/fundamental and technical trend analysis nexus… this is the story of how that came about, and the important initial insights on ‘expectations’ (from 22:00 onward.) Enjoy!!
GameStop and Biden ARP Influence on US Equities (Feb 10, 2021)
We last explored the nature of the long-delayed US government COVID-19 relief bill and some of its weaknesses back in December. Now the markets have a new ‘risk on’ psychology based on the Biden ARP proposal looking very propitious. That is despite the sizable hiccup on the GameStop volatility two weeks ago… and you will hear exactly where that fit in and why it was only a minor irritant.
Relief Rally… Or What? (Dec 22, 2020)
We last explored the true nature of the ‘Santa Claus’ Rally (actually the ‘Santa Portfolio Manager’ Rally) earlier this month. The only problem is the normally bullish Santa has been mugged… more than once. Now it is time to explore the nature of the long-delayed US government COVID-19 relief bill, including some of its less than impressive fine line details which are leaving markets less bullish than some would have hoped.
Santa's Already in Town (Dec 9, 2020)
Last Friday we explored the already aggressive international intermarket ‘risk-on’ psychology being reinforced by the ‘win-win’ nature of the US Employment report. It’s weakness further focused the US Congress on finally coming closer together on possibly passing a COVID-19 economic relief package. Yet there is also another key seasonal factor in the form of ‘Santa’... yet that’s not actually Mr. Claus.
Win-Win US Employment Report (Dec 4, 2020)
Last Wednesday we explored the critical nature of the Biden state election certifications at the ‘nexus’ of politics and pandemic. That restored the more aggressive international intermarket ‘risk-on’ psychology. Even after stalling into early this week, the ‘risk-on’ psychology has been reinforced by the resurrection of the US government COVID-19 relief package talks. That made Friday’s US Employment report a ‘win-win’ event, even if weaker than expected… as it turned out was the case. See the formal release and Reuters article in the Notes.
The Next Outlook (Dec 1, 2020)
Last Wednesday we explored the critical nature of the Biden state election certifications at the ‘nexus’ of politics and pandemic. That restored the more aggressive international intermarket ‘risk-on’ psychology. Even after stalling into early this week, it now seems to be in force again. That is on positive factors in ‘the next outlook’ along with renewed US government relief potential still at the political-pandemic nexus, and global macro expectations we discuss here.
