This week and volatility and abrupt rollercoaster rides await market participants. All triggered by uncertainties from the ongoing trade tiffs and concerned markets on dwindling global growth with geopolitics as its catalyst. The daily tweaks to the status quo drives divided traders to the supply or demand side as elaborated in part in Friday’s post

Volatility is by no means a foul word, so long as one remains above the wave as in surfing. Get caught in the middle and it’s a whirlwind which becomes challenging to break loose from.

The reason why the safe-haven assets like Gold, JPY & CHF continue to gain attention is simply. Traders find their equilibrium by anchoring to them should in case the riskier assets go “berserk’ on them.

Global Stocks:

Global stocks, although some corrected upwards, there is a general falling today the sentimental market initial associated their fears to the ongoing Sino-Hong Kong uprising.  Let’s not forget the “purple elephant” in the room the US Trade Tiffs with China, EU, and possibly others.
