Green Shoots for Europe & Asia

Featuring Greg Weldon

Greg Weldon takes our audience on a macro tour through the recent economic bouts in Europe as rate-differentials with the US provide the Euro a leeway to rally, China having rebounded from it’s economic slowdown; creating momentum for the Shanghai stock market and Asian markets benefiting from the pick-up in growth.

    Great stuff really like Greg's product, his run-through of the various markets and his trading ideas.

    However, with regard to the USD, I'm a bit wary at this point staying long Euro or the other currencies vis-a-vis the USD and am somewhat puzzled re the interest rate discussion/Fed dot plot etc. While I agree with everything he's said re the Fed and their rate hikes and don't think they will be doing too many more (1 currently priced in, and we all know we can't trust the Fed to stay true to their dot plot graph given how far off they are at this point), I think that it's not all about rates re the dollar and as we all know Greenspan raised US rates for years all the way up to over 6% I think and the USD dropped the whole time. So the basic correlation hasn't always worked so not sure how a lot of this stuff isn't priced in already.

    Also the EU isn't as strong as everyone is saying and they have had their 'run' while the US has more potential upside if Trump can get some sort of tax reform done in the 3rd and 4th quarter. Moreover, Germany is loathe for the Euro to appreciate too much more given it's impact on exports, and we're already seeing auto sales slow down bigtime which has to worry them re the Euro getting too much stronger.

    Furthermore, the technicals I'm seeing look like an inflection point pointing to a rebound (Demark and fibonacci) or at least we're getting close. And any slowdown in global markets whether it's the US or China will create USD strength, not weakness.

    Greg: I was long Europe and Euro but recently lighted up because: 1)If Car sales tank as other RV folks suggested, Germany will be hit hard. 2) $ may have bottomed at least short term. So, Europe may be hitting at least a near term high. Am still a bit long European Financials as interest rates may continue to rise for a while, but out of Germany, Spain and Portugal. What should I look for to reload? Thanks, brilliant work, if your a single man shop, over the top good...

    Greg is a stud. It's great to see his process. Sure, it's a "commercial", but those who are serious about learning how to think, instead of just getting a hot tip, appreciate these sorts of "commercials".
