Are pre election jitters returning?


Recommended Posts

In a previous post I outlined a route map down to a wave 4 turning point back up on the S&P, which called of a wave 3-4 retrace to a recent Triangle line breakout down.  The market has just done that off the back of the FBI news on Sunday night together with a significant price gap.  My view is that the price gap is likely to be closed and if it is then the turn could happen around currently levels at the Triangle retest.  If we then see a lower low the Fib 50% support zone is the next most likely turning point (one assumes only if Clinton wins tomorrow).  FWIW the Triangle line also coincides with a Fib 38% of the wave down top (at the wave 2 turn) and NMD on the hourly chart.

Always the danger, that if we get a Hillary Clinton victory this market rallies far to fast, which can happen even with W5's. However we have so far encountered a strong decending resistance line at present. Therefore i could not say if we have truly ended, but in the case of a Clinton Victory you would expect  high probability of a rally.

I think you can be almost certain that the algos will go nuts with a rally on a Clinton victory, just look at what we saw on Sunday night with the FBI thing, if that isn't a harbinger I don't know what is.  It looks like I drew my Triangle line in the wrong place and now the S&P is finding resistance at my revised line and Fib 50%.  I see something similar on the FTSE, probably we will see a small rally this morning followed by some fall back as initial Trump momentum news comes in early but this is academic for me as I am not trading this until the election call is made.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
