Weekly Market Review 27/08-02/08/2013

This past week has been positive, especially for Nikkei 225, which is the winner of the week with gains of 2.7%.

Nikkei is on a gaining edge and is boosted by the weaker Japanese yen . On Friday, the Nikkei Stock Average JP:NIK +3.29%  climbed 3.3% to 14,466.16 after the U.S. dollar surged against the yen overnight. The greenback is expected to trade even higher in the event of a strong U.S. jobs report. In addition, monetary easing is a big factor in this index increases. The dollar USDJPY -0.5926% was recently at ¥99.66, compared with ¥99.56 late Thursday in New York.

Also, among the winners of the week is Nasdaq 100, with a weekly gain of 2.1%. Partly, the advances of NASDAQ-100 were slightly flattened out on Friday and weakened after the release of weaker-than-expected U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls data. The price action suggests investor uncertainty which tends to lead to weaker prices because investors lack the conviction to drive the market higher. Still however, these developments weren’t enough outgain the winning trend of Nasdaq 100.

On the upside, Washington reported that the economy gained 162,000. Additionally, the unemployment rate dropped more than expected to 7.4% versus the preliminary guess of 7.5%.

The USD was one of the currencies that finished the week with a gain. The USD’s weekly advances counted for 0.3%. It looks like it is found into a head and shoulder bottom.

The left shoulder is formed at the end of an extensive move during which the volume is noticeably high. Such an indication takes time to develop, very likely a couple of months. Most binary traders understand that usually after the peak of the left shoulder is formed, there is a subsequent reaction and prices slide down, which generally take place in times of low volume. The prices advance to form the head with normal or heavy volume and subsequent reaction downward is accompanied with limited volume.

On the other hand, the biggest Forex loser of the week has been soybeans with a massive lost of 10.2%.

The result is that the binary soybean market first sawed higher and then plunging  on Friday’s close to finish at contract lows on heavy volume. This implies that the market is acting very heavy currently.

Additionally, another major development is the temperatures, which are still cool in the Chicago land area with 80 degrees ahead for the next 5 days. This is very likely to be beneficial for the crop as the summer comes to an end with harvest starting in 6-8 weeks in the Mid-West while harvest has begun in some parts of the Southern United States.

Moreover, multiple binary analysts believe that year will generate in record crops across the board. Therefore, it might be wise for binary investors to make mainly short position on the

entire grain complex while another record crop down in Brazil this winter could send stock piles to their largest levels in years.

Furthermore, binary specialists should consider the fact that the U.S dollar is near 3 year highs. Some US farmers are in realty expecting to get 200 bushels per acre which is well above the

USDA estimate of around 160 bushels an acre.

Last year, around this time the thermometers were hitting 100 degrees with night time temperatures in the high 80s to low 90s, which over the course of time stunts crops. However, if binary traders closely look at the 10 day forecast it looks as if this year’s weather will continue to remain excellent.

Last week’s winner, binary gold lost ground heavily. Gold marked loses of 0.7%. However, binary traders should reamin careful because the gold market should remain supported with the elevated unemployment. For instance, Asia demand has been supportive of the physical gold as about 1,000 metric tons have been exported to Asia in the last couple of months by the US.   The ETF outflows in July were about 52 metric tons.

This period we witness a solid week for sugar futures, which added 1.6%. Sugar futures are trading above their 20 but below their 100 day moving average settling last week at 16.47, while today are at 16.88 right at a 4 week high.

The range of change of the other traded instruments is between + 2.7% to – 10.2%, as follows:

Nikkei 225 + 2.7%

Oats

+ 2.2%
Nasdaq 100 + 2.1%
Natural Gas – 6.2%
SOYBEANS – 10.2%

Weekly Market Overview 25/03/2013 – 29/03/2013

The binary stocks were led lower for this week by another debt crisis in Europe, but the rather small size of Cyprus, which is the economy at the center of this storm, helped limit the damage. The Dow Jones Industrial Average for a moment pierced the all-time high it had established the previous week, and the Standards & Poor’s 500 remained just short of record territory.
Stocks fell sharply to start the week after Cyprus stated that all its banks had shut and that it was considering a plan to tax bank deposits so that it could receive emergency funds from the European Commission, European Central Bank, and IMF. While the difficulties in Cyprus’s banking system were not unfamiliar, investors were discouraged by the unpopular plan to “bail in” bank depositors, which some concerned would incite further capital flight once banks reopened. In any occasion, Cypriot policymakers backed away from the plan in reaction to national protests as well as resentment from Russian depositors, which left European officials scrambling to design another rescue package.
Some of the stocks’ losses were recovered at midweek. Investors appeared to be stimulated by the Federal Reserve’s decision to keep the central bank’s ultra-accommodative monetary stance despite latest gains in the housing and labor markets. Investors were also glad to hear Ben Bernanke state his estimation that recent stock market gains did not display characteristics of a market bubble, underlining that “we don’t see anything that’s out of line with historical patterns.” Some top financial managers believe that equity valuations seem realistic in relation to fixed income and cash alternatives. They also note that remarkably strong corporate balance sheets provide support to stock prices as well.

Weekly Overview 18/03/13 – 22/03/13

The US Binary Market is set for an eventful week with much of the weight centered in the housing sector and the FOMC. We are expecting on Tuesday to see better picture for two key housing sector indicators. Furthermore, housing starts is expected to increase, which would boost the profitability of the binary call options. We are due to see on Thursday the latest existing home sales figure for February. Meanwhile, the quarterly FOMC economic projections release is due for Wednesday, with less surprises expected this time given Bernanke’s continued expression that monetary easing measures are vital. Finally, on Thursday the Philly Fed manufacturing index figure is expected to increase from -12.5 to -3.1.
This week is likely to be dominated by three key German economic releases with the Eurozone wide PMI figures. We are also eager to hear some good news on the Cypriot front given that last week’s discussions are pushed into this week. On Tuesday, the German ZEW economic sentiment release is broadly anticipated to post a reduced, but still positive figure of 47.9 from 48.2 February. Likewise, the German IFO business climate figure is due on Friday. It is also expected to remain in a similar range to last month. Lastly, the monthly PMI figures are due out on Thursday, with the most noticeable of these being the German manufacturing PMI. Particularly, there are 6 releases due, which cover the manufacturing and services sectors of Germany, France and the Eurozone. All of these 6 are predicted to improve, giving a clean sweep for the region.
In Australia, the key event is the release of monetary policy minutes. It will provide an insight into whether they are getting closer to a reduced interest rate in the economy. The rate remained at 3% as of 5 March, yet given the fall in Chinese manufacturing PMI.

New week, starting December 24th, has only 6 major events due to Christmas holidays. Pay attention to the U.S. New Home Sales on Thuesday.

Let’s review the events. All times are GMT.

  1. Japanese CSPI: Published on Monday at 23:50 GMT. The market expects a score of -0.6%. If the outcome is -0.3% or higher, PUT USD/JPY. If the result is -0.8% or lower, CALL option on USD/JPY.
  2. U.S. S&P/CS Composite-20 HPI: Wednesday, 14:00. Exp. 3.9%. 4.1% or higher, CALL USD/GBP. 2.8% or lower, PUT USD/GBP.
  3. U.K. BBA Mortgage Approvals: Thursday, 09:30. Exp. 34.6K. 35.1K or more, CALL GBP/USD. 31.6K or less, PUT GBP/USD.
  4. U.S. Unemployment Claims: Thursday, 13:30. Exp. 365K. 368K or more, PUT USD/JPY. 356K or less, CALL USD/JPY.

  6. U.S. Pending Home Sales: Friday, 15:00. Exp. -0.3%. 5.5% or higher, CALL USD/JPY. -0.5% or lower, PUT USD/JPY.

These expected market reactions and setups are general market commentary. This is by no means any type of investment advice.

Quick explanations:

CALL options – if the price closes at a higher level than the price you purchased at expiry time, you make 75%. If it closes below, you’re left with 10%.
PUT options – if the price closes under the price you purchased at expiry time, you make 75%. If it closes above, you’re left with 10%.

The data for these news events has been analyzed given previous releases and reactions, current market conditions and more. Significant surprises to market consensus, as given by surveys of economists, normally trigger sharp market reactions that proceed for a long period of time. When some events collide with each other, they can offset each other. So, these events aren’t in the list.
