Two macro charts

If you’re only watching market prices (and drama) you’re missing key points beneath the surface I have not posted yet this week due to being preoccupied elsewhere, due to having done a lot of work lately getting in tune with what’s going on across the markets, due to being bored with the idea of being the guy telling gold bugs don’t buy gold because of … Continue reading Two macro charts

Turns Out SPX Equal Weight vs. Headline Knew the Correction Was Coming

Well, it turns out that NFTRH was timely in resurrecting this indicator to highlight the divergence in equal weight SPX to headline SPX back on February 9th in NFTRH 589. Here’s a screenshot of how this indicator was reintroduced for subscribers’ review (with the understanding that no single indicator is the secret sauce in and of itself, I make the distinction that the indicator knew … Continue reading Turns Out SPX Equal Weight vs. Headline Knew the Correction Was Coming

NFTRH; A Few Macro Indicators to be Very Aware of Right Now

The recent journey has been out of a jittery summer filled with trade war anxiety, into a rally and breakout in the S&P 500 and a Q4 bounce in the global macro inflation/reflation trade that, if it remained a bounce only, could last into Q1. Well folks, here we are well into January and some indicators are on the verge of turning negative. If they … Continue reading NFTRH; A Few Macro Indicators to be Very Aware of Right Now

Mid-Week Market Internals

Random internal views for a Wednesday morning. Putting pictures to what is normally a color coded written NFTRH segment in order to save space within reports that are routinely over 60 pages. Here was the view as of last weekend. Moving on to today, the 2yr yield has stabilized and the 10-2yr curve is still steepening on the short-term. The reflation trade lives, if lamely. … Continue reading Mid-Week Market Internals

The 2 Horsemen

Global central banks have been pumping the liquidity spigots 24/7 and the US Fed is starting to go that way as well. This during a time of supposed economic splendor and fruitfulness (it is these contradictions that are the windows into a ginned up, leveraged economy dependent on monetary policy) while the S&P 500 breaks through the bull turnstile to blue sky. A real economy … Continue reading The 2 Horsemen

Updating the 3 Metallic Amigos and the Macro Message

This morning in pre-market the Amigos’ futures charts update the macro story… …which goes something like this… Copper, the cyclical Amigo (weekly chart) has furthered the intermediate trend line break we noted on October 25th. This is in line with the rally in US and global stock markets and even more so, the global macro reflation theme. It does not look so impressive yet on … Continue reading Updating the 3 Metallic Amigos and the Macro Message

vs. Gold

No matter whether or not gold resumes its correction, as these ratios trend down the proper macro backdrop is in place for a bullish view on the counter-cyclical gold stock sector. Some cyclical asset markets (and a couple yields) vs. gold… SPX/Gold DJW/Gold CRB/Gold Copper/Gold Crude Oil/Gold 10yr Yield/Gold 2yr Yield/Gold And finally, the one that could lead the whole mess to a new cycle … Continue reading vs. Gold

Silver/Gold Ratio Gets on its Horse

As if its ears were burning when I mentioned it in the previous post, the Silver/Gold ratio hopped on and is starting to ride this morning. Now, the questions are… Will this moving average breakout stick this time? Will Copper and other inflation beneficiaries make final washouts first? In the markets, things don’t tend to happen on large scales in real time to our analysis. … Continue reading Silver/Gold Ratio Gets on its Horse

Who’s Leading You Astray?

From NFTRH 537’s Market Internals segment… “Who’s leading you astray, nominal Junk or its hidden bearish indicators?” Junk has since made a new high. Whee, party on Garth! Junk/Investment Grade is not buying it, however. Nor is Junk/LT Treasury. Notice how Junk bonds vs. higher quality bonds were in line with nominal Junk at the September highs. Now? Not so much. Garth is advised to … Continue reading Who’s Leading You Astray?

The ‘Man in the Middle’ Loses Blue Sky

I am on record as leaning toward a seasonal rally (with the FOMC wild card stuck right in the middle of the deck), but it has been elusive as we enter the heart of Santa season. Meanwhile, NFTRH tracks key market and economic internals each week and color codes them Bullish | Neutral | Bearish. It’s probably no surprise that more and more have been … Continue reading The ‘Man in the Middle’ Loses Blue Sky
