Client Talking Points

Japan

Post the friendly Abe visit to the USA and a #StrongDollar ramp vs. the Yen, the Nikkei’s +3% pop in the last 2 trading days registers an immediate-term TRADE overbought signal inasmuch as Yen (vs. USD) signals oversold – we still like Japanese stocks, but we'd book some gains here.

Copper

Youge +5.8% week-over-week move in an important proxy for our #InflationAccelerating call here in Q117 seeing follow through to $2.78/lb this morning but that signals immediate-term TRADE overbought within its bullish TREND too – you should continue to see y/y inflation ramps in the US CPI and PPI reports this week.

VIX

US Equities at the highs and Volatility has crashed (-27.5% since the election) despite consensus concerns about Trump – but that’s yesterday’s news; this morning we're registering my first higher-low (within my immediate-term range) for front-month VIX at 10.36; book gains in US equity beta is the call on that.
