This series of charts will look at the American, European and Japanese banks and this time it is REALLY different. Not in a good way. As you can see, banks are testing long-term post GFC support levels. The key difference is, the last few times the banks tested support, the stocks were oversold. This time, as you can see, banks are overbought on a weekly basis testing long-term trend support.
Whether this is bank-specific or a prelude to the wider trend, the jury is still out. This much I will say, the Americans do not know what they do not know in relation to the Covid-19 situation in the US. For an economy which strength has been measured largely by increases in temporary employment, this is an interesting situation to be in.
