EURCHF revisited

It’s that time of the year when the strategy teams from the big investment banks put out their forecast and top trades for the year ahead. Forecasting movements for equities, foreign exchange and interest rates is a daunting task in normal times, however, more so then ever in 2019, given the baseline provided by 2018 is, financial markets have experienced their most volatile year since the financial crisis in 2008. The 30% fall in the oil price in recent weeks is just the latest high volatility event of 2018, and the list of potential speed bumps for 2019 remains extensive.

Italian storm clouds return

After enjoying a day of sunshine earlier in the week, storm clouds returned to both the Sydney skyline and global financial markets yesterday. Leading the way lower in the Asian time zone was the Chinese equity markets. The Shanghai Composite, after closing down -2.90%, is now 30% below its 2018 lows and at levels last seen back in 2014. Storm clouds also for U.S. stocks as the S&P500 futures tumbled -1.50% to close at 2775.25 after retesting the 200-day moving average at 2770. As highlighted earlier in the week, noticeably absent from last week’s price action at the lows, is clear signs of seller exhaustion/capitulation as indicated by reversal/loss of momentum candles often sighted at equity market lows. The expectation remains for further weakness in the S&P 500 before the customary end of year rally begins.
