Chinese Economy Slows

The Chinese economy is slowing but less than expected.  October exports fell 0.9% vs. consensus of a fall of 3.9%.  Imports fell 6.4% vs. consensus of a fall of 8.9%.

Opposition To Tariff Rollbacks

There are reports of fierce internal opposition in the White House against tariff rollbacks.  The Chinese appear to be insisting that tariff rollbacks are a precondition to phase one deal.  Only Trump knows what he is going to decide.  There can be significant implications for the markets if Trump decides to take a hard line on tariffs.  The consensus on Wall Street is that Trump wants a deal and tariffs will be rolled back.

INFLATION PROPAGANDA MAY HAVE TO CHANGE, BETTER DATA FROM EUROPE, POSITIVE SEASONALITY

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Inflation Propaganda May Have To Change

Q3 Labor Costs – Prelim came at 3.6% vs. 2.1% consensus.  This data indicates that there is risk of inflation. Right now the propaganda from the government and economists is that there is no inflation and that is why the Fed can lower interest rates.

Better Data From Europe

IHS Mrkit final eurozone composite Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) rose to 50.6 vs. consensus of 50.2.  This is a leading indicator.  Our system focuses on leading indicators.  A number above 50 indicates growth and a number below 50 indicates contraction.

In our analysis, this data is encouraging but Europe is not yet out of the woods.

Positive Seasonality

Historically the period between now and the end of January is positive for the stock market.  However some years, like last year, are exceptions.  Last year the market fell about 20% at the end the year.  This year conditions are different.  As we have written before, the big difference is that last year the Fed was tightening, but this year the Fed is easing.

The momo crowd is buying gold in the early trade.  Smart money is inactive.

For longer term, please see gold and silver ratings.

Oil

API data shows crude build of 4.26M barrels vs. consensus of 1.5M barrels build.  This data is bearish.  However the momo crowd is oblivious and continues to buy oil on the positive momentum from China trade optimism.

Smart money is lightly selling into the strength.

EIA data will be released at 10:30 am ET and may move the market.

For longer term, please see oil ratings.
