I wish things moved a lot faster at times too, as that I wouldn’t continue to sound like a broken record here….but it is what it is.
You may find yourself watching the daily levels on a given stock market index as means to gauge how things are going, or perhaps you watch bonds. Unfortunately for me, the U.S dollar with its predominant role as the world’s reserve currency is something I need to remain focused on. It does get a little boring at times – no question about that BUT! If you’ve tuned in over recent months – the accuracy of trade entries and market timing has been strong enough to keep in beers and tacos through some pretty rough patches.
Here we sit.
As suggested yesterday my eyes are keenly focused on USD, and in turn every other asset class as these days “even more than ever” – a lot hinges on where we see the dollar going. In fact – EVERYTHING hinges on it these days.
Hopefully I can find more interesting things to talk about in coming days, as USD looks to be doing exactly what I expected it to do here at these levels. USD is reversing and if today’s action is any indication – of the correlations / options I laid out yesterday – Stocks look set to reverse along with it.
I’ve held a number of short USD trades for several days now as my “round 1” entries where at least a couple of days early. I’ve traded very small and have every intention of just letting this run it’s course – and adding to existing positions as my direction confirms.
You are going to see some very, very , very strange moves in Forex markets here on this turn as a number of “cross currents” come into play – that will challenge any measure of logic. Imagine USD heading lower as well stocks in what would appear to be a risk off move…coupled with AUD and NZD moving higher? That is nuts.
