Spanish bonds are rising.

Trade War

Yesterday the market fell on concerns about the trade war after Trump imposed tariffs.  This morning the market has completely forgotten about the trade war.  However this concern may arise again.

Gold

Significant selling has come in gold after the jobs report on the prospect of higher interest rates.  Higher interest rates are bad for gold.

Nothing has fundamentally changed.  It is just market mechanics at work.

Tariffs

It appears that Trump is set to put tariffs on steel and aluminum coming from the European Union.  If Trump provides further extension, this will be a positive. On the other hand if tariffs go through as scheduled, this will generate negative sentiment in the stock market.

Calm On Relief Rally In Italian Bonds

Yesterday’s plunge in two-year Italian bonds was the culprit in the stock market fall.  This morning a very strong relief rally has occurred in the same bonds calming the markets.

Trump Flip Causes Concerns

Yesterday morning it appeared like Trump was close to striking a deal with China.  Yesterday afternoon, Trump appears to have flipped regarding China. This may be a negotiating tactic.  There is a report that Trump is considering tariffs on Chinese imports again.

PRICES IN ROME CAUSING NEGATIVE SENTIMENT

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

Crisis In Rome

Power struggle in Italy is causing negative sentiment across the globe.  The power struggle is between pro-EU establishment and Eurosceptic populists who were victorious in the March election. Italy is heading toward another election.  The concern is that the election will become an implicit referendum on the euro.

Italian Bond Melt Down

The yield on Italian two-year bond rocketed to over 2.5% after having been below 0.3% recently. This is a huge move.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money

The momo crowd is aggressively selling stocks in the early trade.  The smart money is inactive.

Gold

Gold normally benefits from crisis.  Significant buying was coming into gold earlier today.  However, selling is coming into gold as of this writing because the dollar is strengthening.  Gold is priced in dollars. For this reason as the dollar strengthens, gold weakens.

Oil

Oil is falling on Saudi and Russia talking about easing production cuts.  The Morning Capsule on May 24th stated:

Oil is being aggressively sold on reports that OPEC and Russia are looking at easing production cuts.

The Morning Capsule of May 23rd stated:

Lately oil has been rising.  We have previously shared with you that this was positive for the stock market in the short-term.  Yesterday afternoon a rumor arose that OPEC may increase oil production.  Oil has dipped only slightly on the rumor but it  has caused a bigger sell off in oil stocks and dampened the optimism.

The rumor turned out to be true on Friday May 25th causing the start of a deep selloff in oil.

Earlier this morning, the momo crowd was aggressively selling oil.  As of this writing, the momo crowd has switched and is aggressively buying oil.  The real reason appears to be that oil became very oversold and as it started bouncing off of the low to relieve the oversold condition, the momo crowd switched from selling to buy.

The smart money is inactive.
