More Relieve And Whipsaw Market Effects.By Kenneth@Xtrade - on June 11, 2019
More relieve and whipsaw market effects.
It is interesting observing the trends as some market participants relieved of a head-on collision between the US and Mexico is averted for now. However, other participants react to the whipsaw effects generated by all the uncertainties arising from the socio-political and economic tug of war for trade “fairness” Naturally, the ‘fairness’ varies depending on which side of the equation you find yourself.
Today there will be a deluge of economic releases the most notable ones will shed more light on the UK, US, Norwegian, etc. economies. It is therefore plausible that the technical and fundamentals may, not always be in agreement. For example, there will be instances in which inverse correlation and correlated assets interact differently to what we are used.
Meanwhile, some Asian or US heavy traders are not so impressed with the pace of the Sino-US trade negotiations, which continues to keep traders looking over their shoulders. China has already blocked access to the internet for some Chinese consumer to the Washington Post, Guardian, Reuters, New York Times and Wall Street Journal ramping up what some see as “censorship” and in retaliation to what others call, “US-led Economic Terrorism” or “Economic Bullying”.
The bottom line is that markets remain volatile with opportunities for both those aiming to buy and those hoping to sell with a dose of adrenaline, set of risks and rewards for the diligent yet prudent traders and investors to consider. Off-course this is no, news but a sound reminder as we wade through strained macro-economics.
