Foot Dragging on Riding Sharing is Anti-Environment, Anti-Consumer


on Tuesday, 05 June 2018 08:06

When it comes to protecting the status quo you have to hand it to the self described progressives in BC.  In their world, big government needs to protect consumers from paying less for transportation while saving them from driving less.

USD strength “Blows Out” Setting Up Dam Breaks


on Monday, 04 June 2018 07:20

Market Psychology had a classic “Risk Off” profile early this week as the “existential crisis” unfolding in Europe rallied the safe havens (USD, Swissy, Yen, Treasuries, German bunds) while the Euro, stocks, commodities and peripheral European bonds were dumped.  As the “existential crisis” diminished later in the week everything (with the exception of crude) reversed.

EUR/USD hit a 10 month low early this week...down~8% from the 3 ½ year highs made in February while EUR/CHF was down >5% in 2 weeks at this week’s lows. Gold hit an 8 month high against the Euro in mid-May.

The USD turned higher with “stealth strength” against 2nd and 3rd tier currencies earlier this year and then in mid-April the “dam broke” against the major currencies as widening US interest rate premiums started to really matter (see my April 21 TD notes.)

I think USD strength “blew out” this week and a correction is likely...but Friday’s very strong US employment report supports my view that the Powell Fed is going to remain committed to tightening monetary policy (raising rates and trimming the balance sheet) and that will support a higher USD into the 2nd half of this year.

Trading response: My accounts have moved from short to neutral Euro and I bought British Pounds this week looking for a bounce.
