The Week Ahead in the Global Financial Markets

The Trading Room

Rios on the markets…

How long will the markets be on hold? The financial markets traded choppy all week with the Stock, Bond and Currency markets stuck in a tight trading range, making it challenging to find opportunities for momentum and trend trading styles. The relative performance numbers for the week confirms it clearly with the S&P 500 -0.1%, US Ten Year Notes 0.0% and the US Dollar 0.1%. Could this be the calm before the storm in the global financial markets?

Recent economic data have been disappointing including the Empire State Mfg Index dropping from 12.5 to 4.5 in one month and the Housing Market Index plunging to its lowest level in 9 months. Bad news on a backdrop of several Wall Street firms slashing their economic growth forecasts. (More on this during this week’s IQ Room training sessions.)

Is bad news good news? Is the market expecting the Fed to rescue risk assets? Or is the stock market betting it will all be resolved with better weather? If so, what can we expect from last week’s best performer? Natural Gas continued to be the king of volatility gaining 19.8% (not a misprint, that was last week’s performance).

In the week ahead I will continue to focus on the correlations involving the market’s key benchmarks as my leading indicator to help me distinguish between opportunistic and threatening trading environments. After all, this approach with the RQ DMS (dynamic market sentiment indicator) proved prudent this past week. Coincidently, I wrote about this in our blog thetradingroom.com a year ago February 27, 2013 titled Market Metrics – Correlations Analysis and Asset Class Relationships, to read more about it click here.
