NEGOTIATING TACTIC OR A WAR OF ATTRITION, CONCERN ABOUT OPEC MEETING

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

Negotiating Tactic Or A War Of Attrition

The stock market had mostly dismissed concerns arising out of the U. S. and China putting tariffs on goods as a negotiating tactic.

This morning, the stock market is beginning to weigh the possibility that instead of a simple negotiating tactic, this is a real Trump policy.  If it turns out to be real policy, then the most likely outcome is a trade war of attrition with China.  The U. S. is likely to win but there may be some pain in the stock market before the win.  Any dip in the stock market on these concerns may turn out to be a buying opportunity based on other economic data at this time.  Of course, nothing is fixed in the stock market and economic data. For this reason it is important to keep a close eye on the new economic data until the trade issues are resolved.

Momo Crowd And The Smart Money In The Stock Market

The momo crowd is aggressively selling stocks in early trade.  The smart money is mostly inactive but lightly selling popular high beta technology stocks and stocks directly impacted by a trade war with China.

Gold

The momo crowd is buying gold this morning as some money flows out of stocks into gold.  The smart money is inactive.

OPEC Meeting Concerns

Previously oil was under pressure on Russia apparently advocating as much as 1.6 million barrel production increase.  There is a relief rally on speculation that a production increase of only 200K to 300K barrels is in the cards. The OPEC meeting will end on Saturday.  Until that time, expect oil to move mostly based on rumors.

Any large move in oil may impact the stock market. 

Technical Patterns

Oil is tracing  a Flag. This is bearish. ETF of interest is USO. Before acting please see the subsection on OPEC above.

This is powerful information and many investors use this to enter trades in addition to our official signals.  Here are the three most common uses: 1) Short-term trades in ETFs  2) Decisions to trim or add to long-term positions, and 3) New option trades. These should be used judiciously only in conjunction with macro, fundamental and quantitative indicators.  To learn more please click here.
