Daily Trading Ranges

20 Proprietary Risk Ranges

Daily Trading Ranges is designed to help you understand where you’re buying and selling within the risk range and help you make better sales at the top end of the range and purchases at the low end.

USD, Reflation and Gold

Client Talking Points


USD on the lows here with EUR/USD signaling immediate-term overbought (as are most of the reflation trades) at $1.13; like the June drop in USD, this one is ripping one heck of a reflation trade to lower-highs with the big move behind us now.


For the MONTH to-date, Energy stocks (XLE) which remain in long-term TAIL risk crash mode are +13.4% and Basic Materials (XLB) are +10.7% (vs. Healthcare +2.9%). Since most of the big $$ couldn’t have been positioned to miss the #Deflation and capture all the #Reflation, this makes this trade as emotional as they get – it has nothing to do with demand.


Fortuitously, we expressed our bearish Employment cycle view in long Commodities/Gold terms (we didn’t have it in us to signal buy on Energy stocks) but now that trade is signaling immediate-term TRADE overbought inasmuch as the stocks keying off them are. We’d book some Gold gains and short Oil here on USD oversold.

Asset Allocation


Top Long Ideas

Company Ticker Sector Duration

Our Consumer Staples team remains positive on General Mills coming out of the 2Q15 earnings call. We have been LONG GIS for the last six months and continue to have a favorable view of the company due to the following reasons:

  • Sequential improvement in cereal
  • Growth in Natural & Organic categories
  • Snacking
  • Cost cutting initiatives
  • M&A activity

Many of the regional gaming states will release September revenues next week and as we’ve written about, they should look a lot better than August. Overall same store revenue declined 5% in August (we had predicted –2%) but most of the decline was due to the calendar and a difficult comparison. For September we are projecting an increase of 2% YoY


Our Missouri tracker is forecasting September gaming revenues to be up 3.6% YoY. This is a 6% sequential improvement from August's YoY change of -2.5%. Meanwhile, Pennsylvania slot revenues were up 4% in September. Our thesis for a sequential rebound in September remains intact. We like PENN on the long side from these levels.


It was an important couple of weeks for those who were still wrestling with our lower-for-longer views. The brevity of the macro moves post-report Friday proves just how non-consensus that call remains in a year where the S&P 500 is down -8%. The scary thing with regard to Janet’s credibility is that bad news is now being priced in as bad news. Moreover, we believe this late-cycle weakness is likely to remain ongoing. 

Three for the Road


The @hedgeye global GDP growth estimate is half of consensus.  Yes, friends, winter is coming.



I never decide whether it's time to retire during training camp.

The National Retail Federation forecasts Holiday Sales to increase 3.7%, vs. +4.1% last year.

Yesterday the Hedgeye Macro Team, led by CEO Keith McCullough, hosted its quarterly Macro Themes conference call in which it detailed the THREE MOST IMPORTANT MACRO TRENDS it has identified for 4Q15 and the associated investment implications.

  • #SuperLateCycle (USA): Slowing growth typifies the twilight of an economic expansion and negative 2nd derivative trends are creeping in across much of the domestic fundamental data. From labor and manufacturing markets to consumer and business confidence, leading indicators are beginning to roll as the late-cycle moves past peak. We'll detail why Slower-And-Lower-For-Longer remains the call. 
  • #GlobalSlowing: With the Street, IMF, World Bank and OECD all still forecasting global growth of around 3% for 2015, we find it appropriate to reiterate our call for global growth to come in at or below half that rate. Moreover, while China's August CNY devaluation effectively made our #EmergingOutflows theme a consensus bearish cog in the global economic outlook, we do not think investors are appropriately positioned for a likely trend of negative revisions to the respective growth outlooks in the U.S., Eurozone and Japan throughout the balance of the year.
  • #Crashing: Definitive crashes have occurred across many global macro markets in recent months. Those market participants on the wrong side of growth slowing and deflation are feeling the most pain. Crashing inflation expectations are perpetuating the pain across all asset classes and sectors levered to unrealistic growth expectations (energy, industrials, materials), as well as across the high-yield bond market, commodity markets, commodity currencies. Is the U.S. equity market next in line?
