Dovish Draghi Doubles Down - Is policy divergence finally here?
http://www.basementmacro.com/uncategorized/dovish-draghi-do…nce-finally-here/ Draghi doubled down dovishly last week. Key quotes among his presser included: (1) Draghi: "To show that the ECB is going to stay in the markets, to show that it will continue to exert pressure on market prices, though we don't want to ...

Shorting oil to 42
Bullish bets haven't abated over the last two weeks, despite a 6% decline in the front month contract and a new YTD low in oil volatility. Looking to collect some vol carry and continued downside price drift via Sept puts 45 puts. I see room for a decline down to the 76.4 fib retracement at 41.49. Will look to roll ...

Too perfect: stay short $USDJPY to 98.787
Continue staying short $JPYUSD (Yen strength). The 24min chart has a stupidly perfect setup for a strengthening impulse to 98.787 which coincides with: 100% fib retracement, prior low and a bear pennant breakdown.

Crude continues to lack support through $39
With no real support until the 50% fib retracement at 38.76 and consolidation zone support at 37.55, crude looks destined to continue lower. Options markets are pricing August expiry at 36.69 on the downside and crude volatility is breaking out of a quarterly downtrend. Watch price action around psychological ...

Unusual for new $GC_F LODs to form post Euro Close
Fed Funds futures are predicting a 22.5% probability of a June rate hike. That's 4 points higher than pre ISM data. Dollar continues to strengthen. Unusual for Gold to set new LODs after European close. Speaks to degree and breadth of selling. Futures are beginning for a re-test of 1200.

Nice Risk/Reward Long CAD, If Skeptical of Commodity Rally
I'm skeptical of commodities holding up at these levels with renewed dollar strength, especially oil. CAD has strengthened considerably and looks due for a pull back (higher). I'm targeting the 61.8% retracement of the recent rally (lower) at 1.3790 by JUL expiry. Options markets are only pricing in an expected ...

CNY USD Arbitrage highest since Feb 2014
We're seeing an explosion higher in BTC led by Chinese buyers to the tune of 30X BTCCNY:BTCUSD volume with a massive arb spread of $72 (15%), highest since Feb '14. The arb spread blowing out leads me to speculate that fears of the PBOC loosening up their grip on a "managed devaluation" are spreading. Thank ...

Gold technically and fundamentally weak
5/25: Gold's fundamentals and technicals look weak. Fundamentals: Rate rise fears, renewed USD strength, $ES_F strength paints optimistic US econ picture and positioning data is awfully one-sided.

1240-1250 Important Decision Zone for Gold
Gold has finally shown some sustained weakness after markets realized the remarkably, fantastically obvious underpricing of June FFR hike risk - up 30% from 4%,only two days ago! Money Managers have never been longer the yellow metal - on both an absolute and net basis, so there's quite a bit of volume that should ...

I like the asymmetrical risk in shorting spooz here at support around 2033 on down to the next support level at 2013. Keep your eyes open for a possible bounce at 2019. WARNING: Keep your stop VERY tight! We've seen two strong bounces higher off of this support zone at 2033ish.

Was this morning dollar bear capitulation?
NFP came in weak, as expected. On the release, $GC1! spiked, $DX1! dove and $ES1! tanked. Again, all par for expectations. That said, no sooner than 6 minutes after the release, $DX1! was already trading higher than pre-NFP. Could that be a signal of capitulation on the bearish dollar trade? Yes, that's a gutsy ...
