Hang Seng Index - RHO Day High precision within 5 points!

Both the Hang Seng Day High and Day Low predictions on 27 December were spot on! Our RHO day high 25915 was within 5 points from the actual day high of 25920! It went on to correct 469 (1.81%) within the same day. The RHO day low was tested a few more times before it broke down further, validating it as a key level.

518 points from short trades when Dow Jones had its biggest points gain in history!

It was a bullish trading day on 26 Dec after the Christmas Holiday. Dow Jones recorded its biggest points gain in history, with a 1158 points rally at the stroke of midnight. 

However, though it did not hit our predicted day low, our RHO Index Key Levels strategy still managed to yield good returns on the corrections. A short trade at RHO intermediate day high at 12.57am could have yielded 352 points, and a short trade at RHO day high at 1.57am could have yielded 166 points. I am glad that the RHO day high was tested again at 3.27 am before the final 558 points rally. This shows that the RHO predicted levels were indeed significant levels.

Fed Meeting Tonight - Most Watched In Years .... How will it affect the market?

Trump’s Jerome Powell-focused tweets has blasted the Fed for two days running, calling for officials to cease raising interest rates, a level of public pressure no president has put on the Fed in decades.

Federal Reserve began a two-day policy meeting Tuesday, perhaps its most scrutinized session in years. While sentiments on the stock market has been weak, the U.S. jobs market is still strong and the outlook for 2019 is relatively solid, so the case for a hike hasn’t disappeared. 

However, it raises the issue of Federal Reserve policy, which has become more politicised and in this respect, Powell’s comment in a speech at the Economic Club of New York that interest rates remain “just below the broad range of estimates of the level that would be neutral for the economy” has, not surprisingly, been interpreted as dovish by the markets. This is why current market expectations of only two more rate hikes (including December) by the end of 2019. 

Many traders are expecting the Fed to say something dovish tonight that will give the market a “Santa Claus” rally towards the year end. Sifu think this view carry with it much risk, because if Fed signal a pause, it would have been expected, worse still if Powell give in to Donald’s pressure and decide not raise rate tonight , the market will crash for fear that the central bank now see that a recession is plausible.

Thomson Medical - warrants back in-the-money

The price action of Thomson Medical (TM) looks interesting these few days. With the existing TM Warrants expiring in April next year, the price of TM has now returned to $0.09, which is the exercise price of TM warrants.

If the price stays above $0.09-$0.095, there could be an opportunity for shareholders to arbitrage by selling their shares and convert their TM warrants into shares at $0.09 in order to receive the piggy-back warrants, which only expires in 3 years. Exercise price of the piggyback warrants is $0.12.

For the piggyback warrants to be listed, 100 shareholders have to exercise their TM warrants. From TM's point of view, investors exercising the warrants will be an important source of funds for its projects.

Italian Politics Will Shake The Markets

Italy Politics Will Shake The Market

With the focus on Trump’s Trade War  and its  potential fallout in other emerging markets, traders forgot about the Italy and the Eurozone. Yesterday the Italian Government agreed to a 2019 budget deficit target of 2.4% of GDP that could bring it into direct conflict with the European Union. It will now begin its passage through Parliament before being presented to EU by 20 October 2018.

This blog believes that the current Italian government is
likely to trigger a renewed existential crisis in the Eurozone
Compared with other countries in eurozone ,  Italy has recorded almost no growth
since the formation of the euro at the beginning of 1999. Italian real GDP has risen by only an
annualised 0.4% since 1Q99 and is up only an annualised 0.1% in real GDP per capita terms over the
same period.
While pundits are worried about  Trump-triggered trade war, rising interest rates or overvalued
Wall Street FANG stocks Ths blog believes that a systemic event in financial markets is more likely to be
triggered by Italy and the Eurozone . Still, they are all interconnected phenomena since, for example, a renewed focus on the existential risks in the Eurozone is likely to put renewed downward pressure on the
euro which will then lead to strong  US dollar.
This will in turn make it more challenging emerging countries to pay their debts. Similarly, an escalation in trade wars are likely to drive the  US dollar higher.

For now this blog is short on the Euro dollar and the Dax in anticipation of a renewed existent crisis in Eurozone in October

Hang Seng Property Index - The Fundamentals and Technicals are pointing to a Impending Crash !

For the last 30  years , the Hang Seng Property index has experienced 2 Big Crashes in 1997 and 2008.. From my Chart, after nearly 10  years of uptrend since 2009 the index has reached a multi year peak and is about to experience another major crash. This could come in the next 6 months. The Fundamentals for such a crash is also in place with rising interest rates, slowing economy and a depreciating Chinese Yuan . From 2005-2006 period property price correction was triggered by mortgage rate hike, in 2008 it was caused by economic downturn due to the global financial crisis and in 2015-2016 period it was due to Chinese yuan depreciation. All the headwinds are now in playto trigger yet another property crash. This blog is bearish on Country Garden, SHKP and Sino Land.

Its A Matter Of the King Dollar

The US Dollar Index has broken above its key 95 resistance level and would be heading for the next resistance levels 97.7,  99.00 and 1.00. With the dollar strength , the cheap dollar that drives a multi year borrowing binge that fueled heady growth is about to take its toll on Emerging Countries laden with dollar debts. Turkey crisis  is the latest example of  a Dollar victim  which expert fear would spread to other emerging markets. Turkey could be a canary in gold mine for the vast amount of cheap dollar loans accumulated worldwide since central bankers started Quantitative Easing in 2009. The Donald Trump led Fiscal easing and Monetary tightening , will continue to power the dollar higher. Trump has been using trade sanction and strong dollar as a part of his bullying tactics to pursue the American agenda. As long as the dollar bull continues, Asia and emerging markets will continue to be weak and the only place to put your money will be the Trump led US stock market.
