International outlook

From time to time we will be sharing some of the ideas that our strategists generate in the global market arena. These views and ideas will likely not come every week, although as and when they do, we will share selected ideas here so that you can stay on top what our team is looking out for.

What are NFTs and why do they matter?

Non-fungible tokens or NFTs are taking the world by storm and you should probably start paying attention. It is the newest craze in crypto, which can be confusing to wrap your head around, but it could possibly hold the most utility in this landscape so far.

NFTs are essentially unique tokens that prove individuality. Unlike with cryptocurrency where one Bitcoin holds the same value as another Bitcoin, NFTs are something completely on their own. They are stored digitally on the blockchain and promote the culture of uniqueness.

Four US trades for the week

When it comes to speculative trading, we like to ensure that we clear our minds of bias as often as we can and allow the charts to dictate our trades. This week we have four US trades that we think have good risk-reward setups.

Long and strong

It’s almost time again for the U.S. markets to open for the week. As usual, we have some offshore trade ideas to help you prepare for the week ahead. Mostly, our ideas this week are bullish, as the U.S. market is staying long and strong. Just remember, as always, that stop losses save lives. So make sure you manage your risk before anything else.

Wall Street bets

Perhaps not as exciting or even nearly as recklessly speculative as the trades that come from the now notorious Wall Street bets subreddit, but still some trade ideas on U.S. listed equities. Unlike the Wall Street bets subreddit, we want to remind and encourage you to make use of very strict risk management. Always use a stop loss and always ensure that you are not taking more exposure that what you can reasonably afford. That said, here are some of our offshore trade ideas for this week.

Brrrrrr! Christmas is coming!

2020 was wild. In fact, it was a good lesson in accepting the true unpredictability of not only markets, but the world itself. It also further cemented one cardinal truth… you can’t fight the Fed. Especially when good ol Jerome has a Santa hat on and is shouting “Brrrrrr! Christmas is coming!”.

It’s been a while since we’ve put out some US trade ideas. Don’t chase them and make sure you stick to the stop losses.

Avoiding the US election

The election is just one week away and we recommend staying light into the election and making decisions post-election results, even if we have to pay up a bit in case of good news, or just stay on the sides in the case of bad news. There is no edge in trying to figure out an election result for a trader.

International outlook 14 September 2020

Markets are feeling a little fragile at the moment, thus we’ve not produced many offshore trade ideas over the last few weeks. We do at least have one offshore short-term trade idea today that we think is worth looking at.

Trade ideas: Gold and silver

Gold and silver have been the talk of the town amongst most professional investors in recent months. With the Fed printing the dollar into oblivion, gold caught a decent bid and became massively overbought, along with its cheaper brother silver. Gold and silver sentiment became extreme and as you know, when the hysteria hits the market, it’s normally the end of the bull run. We have now had a decent retracement and believe that we can start looking at gold shares again for a bounce.

U.S. commentary

So, in the depths of the COVID gloom there was talk of a depression and stocks dropping another 50% from the lows. There was absolute conviction that you should not be buying. Now, after one of the most insane V-shaped recoveries we have ever seen, most analysts tell you to buy Apple, Tesla and anything tech-related as we have entered a new type of world. And yes, a V-shaped recovery… as most analysts say it isn’t happening, but it’s a clear V – as you see in the chart of the Nasdaq. Anyway, the consensus has swung from “don’t buy” when it was low to “buy everything” here and now? We disagree. We think it’s time to go risk-off.

Update on the Nasdaq

The Index holding the largest amount of fast money shows that we are still above the famous 20 day moving average. It has now been tested numerous times, as well as, the upward sloping trendline that mirrors the 20 day.

Nasdaq update

We update our comments on the Nasdaq from earlier this week. We note that there are a few trends that look in danger of being broken.

Tracking the Nasdaq

Markets remain in a tricky situation. The strongest market currently, the Nasdaq, is the one that we are watching. If the QQQ ETF breaks $250, it’s our triple kill zone.

Market sentiment 29 June 2020

Another quick look at current market sentiment. We notice that the bulls are getting very excited about precious metals (both the Silver and Gold). At present, that is the only extreme we see out there.

Trade ideas: AAPL, MMM, BRK/B

The market is starting to feel a little better. It is still to be seen if it has bottomed or not and in truth there is no way of telling right now. Nonetheless, there are some interesting trading opportunities out there. Below we look at three of them.

Trade ideas: MA and OXY

Panic reigns supreme… but there are opportunities for the brave. We have two trade ideas that are not for the faint hearted. Note though that the strictest risk management is needed and stop losses are vital.

Be greedy when others are fearful

Let’s get to the point: what’s happening is totally unprecedented… the market has gone up or down more than 4% for 7 consecutive days. That’s a new record. The previous record was 1929. There are a whole number of stats like this that are unprecedented. Below are stats of this week… craziest moves we’ve ever seen.

Trade idea: SPY

We know that it is a difficult time to buy stocks bearish news and frankly, chaos reigning in markets. However, the market is showing signs of heavy capitulation. We won’t go into all the stats that are showing signs of extremes, but there might be an against the trend trade opportunity here with a high risk:reward profile.

Trade idea: TLT

TLT is a defensive ETF as it effectively captures the far end of the Treasury curve in a liquid, exchange traded package. Exclusively holding bonds with 20+ years to maturity, TLT is – by design – very sensitive to long-term interest-rate movements. It seems to us that TLT has gone into what we describe as a parabolic blow off top. The most obvious reason for this would be because TLT, as a bond ETF, is viewed as a safe haven asset in times of uncertainty. Corona-times are pretty uncertain times we would say. Hence the run to safety.
