Trading Market Commentary August 7, 2017


American Market 

I have a real kick out of seeing the marketplace activity as it approaches a possible longer-term top. At the same time, Bitcoins are performing precisely what I've pointed out while back - hit new record highs of $3,287.50 during the early trading on Monday, there's nevertheless the next matter of a potential stock market frenzy blow-off for the upside.

Given that the earnings season is approaching to its finalization, equity traders and investors continue to confront some questions regarding the market’s overall health. As the DowJones Index continues smacking all-time highs for the record-breaking nine days straight, the much broader indices happen to be infamously lagging the DJ benchmark greatly. That market behavior is far from the ideal action. However, this inherent lack of strength continues to be prolonged for many months, without having to break the rally.

With the Fed's Jackson Hole symposium approaching very soon, this the event in which the former Fed Chief Ben Bernanke introduced QE (Quantitative Easing) for the first time in the history of the markets. Mind you; virtually all eyes are on the “not-too-stellar” American economic results, which in turn resulted in a drawn-out Greenback downfall as of late. 

The key US averages virtually all finished in positive territory, with the DowJones Index edging up 25.61 points (0.1%) to 22,118.42, the S&P500 Index rising 4.08 points (0.2%) to 2,480.91, and the Tech-Heavy NASDAQ Index outperformed its competitors by going up the 32.21 points (0.5%) to 6,383.77. 

European Markets

Eurozone undoubtedly didn't abide by Asia-Pacific region excitement about trading markets with price levels barely staying slightly on the positive side. Once again, it was the German DAX30 that was the maverick at the same time a few other core indices held their heads. The DAX30 closed lower minus 0.35% while the UK's FTSE100, the Spanish IBEX35 and Franch CAC40, all accumulated around 0.2% gain. 

Asia-Pacific Market

Asia-Pacific started out continually with the hype of Fridays surprising excellent employment number. Many considerations had been surrounding the economic sanctions the UN (United Nations) levied on NK (North Korea). However, these have been swiftly ignored as the trading day session wore on. 

The Japan Nikkei225 Index increased 0.5% even while the Yen currency continued to be toying with an 110 handle. One of the better in the region was the Aussie's ASX200 which put on a bit below 1% with increases seen through financials, energies, miners, and autos sector. 

The Shanghai Index and HK's Hang Seng Index likewise added about 0.5% on an excellent wide-ranging overall performance although the volume has been soft. SENSEX Bombay's Stock Exchange Sensitive Index appears to have shed its glamor lately not to mention to give a little more back on Monday closing at minus 0.2%.
