14 – 18 September 2020 Trading week preparation

Every week I share a bunch of stuff.
– Daily signals for MA Crosses and MA breakouts
– Market Reports
– Consolidated market data and more.

From last week:
Another range-bound week of big ups and downs leading to nowhere.
I have been trading less and less, I don´t feel comfortable at all with this current market conditions. I will share an article from Jesse Felder where he talks particularly about this.

Still long $AG, $LVO.MI and Gold (CFD).
As I shared last week, due to negative correlations with WTI, Tankers were primed for a bump. Caught both $STNG and $TNK, both positions sold on Friday’s close.

My macro opinions for long term:

  1. We are heading lower, much lower on stocks.
    I don´t think the last drop was it, I think we still have one last push before the last dance.
  2. US bond yields are going to zero.
    It´s happening, not much to say
  3. Gold and silver will go a little bit lower before acting as safe heavens.
    It´s holding, very correlated with DXY, watch both.
  4. Commodities will behave like gold, especially grains.
    Grains are having a nice pump on the DXY decline.

Next Week:
I will keep it short, It will be a crazy week. A lot of technical setups for major indexes and commodities may conclude /break this week.
I don´t plan on trading heavy, I will keep my approach of laying back and let the market do Its thing.
Still eying the cannabis industry, check last week´s post.

Also, vacations are coming so It´s time to detach, 100%.

It bumped as planed to ~$40 and kept going down.
I believe It still has plenty on the downside to go, but technically a more significant bounce is due.
It triggered a pivot reversal (purple triangle) and we may see $40 again.
For mind term, I think we will see $25 WTI again.

Another thing to have into consideration, in the last few weeks, inventories have been negative and the price has gone nowhere. Last week, the inventories gained a bit and fueled a sell.

Spreads are also widening.

Technically gold is super bullish, the bull flag pattern even seems to have triggered. This being said, I will watch the DXY before making a move on gold. DXY has been beaten to a pulp and It might come back to life with a revenge thirst.

The spreads on gold futures #1-#12 and #1-#6 are also rising, the spread between #1-#12 is +$200 wide. This is insane and it will close, eventually.

So, the mighty spuz.
This is a bull flag, technically this is super bullish.
I don’t think we are done with more upside and the spuz might retest ~3500 level.
Fundamentals are aligning again with super bearish strength. It´s a no-trade for me due to uncertainty.
A lot of SP500 constituents are red on the bull-bear lines (255 DMA), and the rally is being fueled by tech.
As tech is turning bearish, make your conclusions on how this house of cards will unfold.
