‘Margin of safety’; accumulate towards a $9 cost basis

Marathon Oil Corp. $11.31 July 13th 2017 Energy has underperformed the S&P 500 by -21% year-to-date. Marathon is down -35% and trades at a 22% discount to tangible book value, despite being relatively well positioned to withstand lower crude oil prices (figure 1). At 6.2x EV/EBITA (9.0x sector average), there are signs that patient investors will be rewarded ...

Time to cover GBP shorts for long pivot: target 1.3640

Long GBPUSD targeting 1.3640 Having remained short GBPUSD since the brexit vote June 24th (see linked), now could be the time to close shorts and consider a long position in the pound. Speculative positioning is extremely bearish and has increased to record highs in recent weeks With sterling effectively pricing recession, rate cuts having already taken ...

Negative divergence warning to longs in overcrowded Silver trade

Long Russell 1000 Value / Short Russell 1000 Growth In a market with declining corporate profits and a stagnant real disposable incomes, growth is scarce.

The Yen is set to strengthen to 95 per dollar on a break below 100 USDJPY failed to find buyers around 103 Closed below the 102.85 (62%) retracement level on Friday on heavy selling (large macro fund driven) A test of 99.98 now looks likely and momentum favours a break to the downside If this level holds then a 'right shoulder' could form around 102.50 - ...

Credit Agricole: Time to buy European banks?

Related to the reflation theme described in my view "Crude Oil: The Most Important Chart in the World". European banks trade at a 60% discount to the market (only seen during crises of 2008 and 2012) and represent a 'value' play amidst the prospect of higher rates resulting from the reflation theme. European stocks also trade at 'crisis lows' versus their ...

Silver breakout: The reflation trade of 2016 continues

Related to the reflation theme described in my view "Crude Oil: The Most Important Chart in the World". Silver is has been consolidating whilst showing relative strength versus gold. Having broken above a downward sloping trendline from the $21.11 high set 4th July, speculators appear to be positioning for further dovishness from the Fed later today. Assuming a ...

Related to the reflation theme described in my view "Crude Oil: The Most Important Chart in the World".

Crude Oil: The Most Important Chart in the World

Crude oil is the only chart that matters again. Momentum is currently to the downside, below the 200d moving average having sold off from $50 in early June The first key support level is near at 41.88 (38.2% retracement of the Feb '16 - June '16 rally) Should this fail, the next major support level is 35.84 (61.8% retracement of the Feb '16 - June '16 ...

Updated levels USDJPY

The Yen has strengthened overnight to 104.12, exceeding my initial downside target of 104.63 following the rise above 107.20 last week (107.49 intraday high) With the Fed and BoJ conducting their policy meetings Wednesday and Friday of this week respectively, technical levels are likely to be honoured in the meantime. USDJPY currently trades at the 38.2% ...

USDJPY: Potential retracement to 104.50 if it stalls near 107.20

Despite broad dollar buying, the Yen looks unlikely to see much further upside above 107.20 this week. With this said, keep an eye on a close either side of 106.65 which provides a longer term bias (2011-2016 32% retracement level). Two consecutive daily closes, or one weekly close above this level would indicate the start of a sustained uptrend in USDJPY. Look ...

Long the US dollar over a minimum 9-12 month horizon/b] Support around 92. Breaking out on the daily chart, however as it is towards the upper end of the channel it may be advisable to enter with a half size and add on the first pullback. Bond are grossly mispriced as central bank buying has prevented the market from signalling the inflation risk to yields. ...

Sell GBPUSD 1.3100 targeting new lows below 1.28

Sterling remains weak and has just broken the neckline of a bearish head & shoulders formation on the 4 hour chart. Caution is advised (see my linked post) with regards to the risk of a short squeeze perpetuated by UK labour and retail sales data this week. It would be prudent to operate a stop on-close rather than at-level given the likely volatility around ...

UK Property REITS are on the move - targeting 62% retracement

UK Property REITS including Derwent (DLN) have today closed above their 38% retracement levels following brexit. Having been long DLN from 2400 on 7th July, this provides a bullish signal indicating that resistance has been successfully broken (following a week's worth of testing) and that price should rally towards 3019 in the next few weeks. Should we see a ...

USDJPY testing major resistance at 106.65 after holding 100.71

USDJPY has completed an initial move from the 50% retracement level of the 2011 - 2015 rally and now faces resistance at 106.65 (38%) Whilst momentum oscillators were previously oversold on both weekly and daily intervals, and are far from overbought in terms of the RSI, one might expect sellers to return around this level. A sustained break above 106.65 ...

A Fund Manager Survey today showed that investors are net underweight European equities for the first time since pretty much the European debt crisis of 2012. With positioning at 3 year bearish extremes and cash positions the highest since November 2001, fear of a new European crisis and a post-brexit fallout appear to be heavily discounted in the price of ...
