The Week Ahead in the Global Financial Markets

The Trading Room

From the desk of Joe Rios

What are the markets trying to tell us? Are you listening?

I have been noticing unusual and divergent correlations among the key benchmarks including the stock, bond and currency markets. Rotation flows have been odd and contradictory, reflecting a lack of conviction among market participants. During Risk-Off environments  bonds usually rise (interest rate yields fall) due to expectations of falling growth rate. Conversely during Risk-On stock markets rise in foreseeing higher future growth and higher corporate earnings. However, we’ve been seeing interest rate yields fall as the stock markets around the world hold near multi year highs. Which market is right? I believe ultimately, this recent tug-of-war will cease, but when will the rope snap? The currency market did react, first by what appeared to be short covering in the US Dollar but by the end of the week, prices stalled and consolidated.  In the week ahead I will look to the currency market for cues to which side of the rope may gain control thus creating volatility and trading opportunities. I will also pay close attention to upcoming economic data releases including FOMC meeting minutes, recent data has been mixed, with slow growth from China, Japan, Europe and the US while some commodities have risen.
