Fasten your seatbelts. Buy the rumor, sell the fact? Or just Scalp! Be ready for capricious movements.

President Trump arrives in Tokyo for the G-20 summit. And in the meantime market observers and participants are cooking and preparing conflicting narratives either to dispel the other or support their own view. It could be plausible to adopt a scalping strategy if and when day trading.

Global Stocks: Have been trading at their elastic limits. Taking no prisoners and sparing no one. Obviously, investors are agitated attempting to understand the end game, which is currently being driving by several factors. Most notably the G-20 summit, Brexit, Oil, and the Trade Negotiations.

  • UK100: Was seen up trending in the early hours of the EU open. Up 0.13% at 7,359.8 in a range between 7,328.7 -7,377.5 with market participants trying to weigh the mood for the G-20 we could expert wild swings up and down. The technical analysis reveals two possible resistance levels as follows: 1St Resistance Levels at 7.410.00 2nd Resistance Levels at 7.378.00 and Support Levels at 7.318.00
  • Germany 30: Was also observed extending gains by 10:00 GMT the time of print, up 0.44% at 12,285.0. Trading, between 12,214.8-12,318.8 further upside seems limited to days’ resistance levels. Although the technical analysis provides a wider range between 12.343.50 -12.192.60 for hedging considerations.

Due to the unsettling macroeconomics, the technical analysis of the day provided a wider range to compensate for any unforeseen reaction. Suggesting the resistance levels at 21.400.00 pretty high.1st support levels at 21.030.00 and the 2ndsupport levels at 20.700.00 in case things turn for the worst.
  • USA30: Observed trading at 26,613.5 up 0.24 & trading between 26,507.5 -26,665.0 If earlier news of a possible tentative trade truce between the US and China does not materialize it is likely going to pull the Dow down.

It looks messy. But the fundamentals to rule or weigh on investor sentiments.

  • Oil: Oil traders experienced prices spike bolstered by US crude oil inventory and stockpile drops. However, upside above the $60 bbl. has been met with challenges as OPEC prepares to meet its Joint Ministers on July 1st. growing concerns of heated interaction between the US and China could derail hopes.
