30/12/19 Wolf Richter: I, Who Vowed to Never-Ever Short Stocks Again, Just Shorted the Entire Market


Recommended Posts

Personally I believe much of that money currently locked up in inflated asset and stock prices should be crystallized (realized) in real economy expenditure, thus closing the income inequality gap to some extent and rebuilding America's infrastructure, providing affordable housing for all etc.  The fact that the rich have all this money and don't spend it is the real reason why inflation and growth are so low.

Sorry not January 2019, but March 2019.

It's amazing how often the Boeing share price would jump on 'reports' on the 747 Max coming back into service within a few months.  You'd have to have gone short early and held on ('sell and hold') to really benefit.

I do hope he lets us know how he gets on. 

Novice compared to yourself but,huge loss of investors in oil  and OPEC meeting aprox 14 Feb with a view to cutting production and the China virus hitting global economy plus the period of around two weeks before symptoms and it really only got declared  properley on 31 dec ,it seems reasonable to me that there will be atleast a doubling of cases  in the coming weeks and combining the slowdown and the timing of talks the price v other events such as sars beleive oil will drop to $40 before anything gets better and possibly lower.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • 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.
