Trading Week Ended October 6, 2017 

Trading equity markets across the world are at or perhaps in the vicinity of all-time highs. The important exception to this rule is Japan, which actually peaked in 1989 at 39,000 level and Eighteen years later is set in at fifty percent of that level.

One of an enormous credit expansion and money printing throughout history accomplished almost nothing for everyday people. However, it undoubtedly has powered equity markets throughout the world. Of the majority of conditions, trading equity markets are dramatically overvalued, regardless of whether many take the Gross Domestic Product, sales or margin debt to price-earnings ratios. Equity markets are currently in bubble zone with very high risk.

But there is, however, an important but! Why? Simply because bubbles get much bigger than we're able ever to envision. The trend has risen, and there's absolutely nothing nowadays showing that this trend is now ending. Generally, as markets peak, there is the full range involvement coming from retail traders and investors. Equities markets shift once most unaware public get sucked in.

However, we're definitely not seeing and hearing regular investors and traders writing about what kind of money they're generating nowadays in technology stocks like they did throughout1998-1999 time frame. The NASDAQ composite has risen five times since 2009 just like it had been in the 1990's. However, the main difference these days smaller sized traders and investors aren't taking part in this frenzy. That could be the reason precisely why this stock market is going a lot higher. Equity markets top through exhaustion, and we're nonetheless not at that phase yet.

Increased interest rates will at first cause traders and investors a lot more bullish with regards to a fortifying economy. So when bond market starts to decline with higher interest rates, traders and investors will transition from bonds to equities. Ultimately, increased interest rates will crush the economy and equity trading markets. However, not yet. Therefore we should see the greater stock market for quite a while and even well into 2018's. Almost certainly, of course, there will be corrections along the way. 

However, there is one important caution. This last cycle of the long bull markets in equities has held up for eight years so far, and on, for the most part, it's very overbought as well as at high risk. Once the stock market changes, we will have the greatest bear market on record. The coming decline will probably be a lot larger than the 1929 - 1932 crash.

US Trading Market

Trading complacency is definitely growing on US stock markets, as the overseas equity rally carries on, with all the key indices trading at or perhaps not far from their all-time high levels. The broad S&P 500 Index is testing $2550 as projected; however, right now the likelihood of a short-term static correction are mounting along with the robustness that many of us observed within the past few weeks could possibly quickly fizzle out. The Chicago Board Options Exchange SPX  Volatility Index (VIX) got in the vicinity of 9 Thursday trading session, and that is just about at record lows as equity bears grew to become extinct.

The primary indices virtually all completed the week in the positive territory with the S&P500 Index, NASDAQ Composite, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), adding 1.2%, 1.5%, and 1.7%, respectively. The financial market sector has added in 10.6% since the time of finishing at a three month low on September 7 of this year and currently trades merely a tick beneath the benchmark index for the current year.

Overseas Markets

The end of a holiday full week for trading markets in Asia region. We will have to hold off until Monday (Oct 9) to check out mainland China, Hong Kong and  South Korea's reaction to the US Non-Farm Payrolls numbers as well as the reaction to the up move of the US Dollar Index (DXY). Elsewhere, stocks in Asia-Pacific region completed out the week in definitive trend, shifting vastly higher on the heels of a continuing record level in the US stock markets, volume stayed at a lighter level than average.

Eurozone bourses traded mixed depending on the particular currency base. Meanwhile, the UK's FTSE100 Index climbed 0.2%, the French CAC40 Index dropped by 0.4%, and the German DAX30 Index fell by 0.1% on the reports of their best increase in German factory orders for August. And nervous before the weekend and also Monday’s entirely possible event in Spain. 

Currency and Commodity Market

Currencies market experienced a quite busy week, and even though Friday’s trading session has been comparatively event less, particularly with regard to a  Friday US Non-Farm Payrolls, the trends from the past couple of trading sessions continue to be dominant. The Bloomberg yellow metal spot price put on a nice gain of $6.86 to close at $1,275.08. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil dropped $1.50 to $49.29 per barrel, and wholesale petro fuel was $0.05 smaller at $1.56 per US gallon. The US Dollar Index (DXY) in a contrast of the US Dollar to 6 key foreign currencies ended up being 0.2% lesser at 93.81.

In the event you do not possess physical silver or gold, acquire some at this point at these kinds of incredibly bargains prices. Stow them safely and securely outside of the banking system. In the event you own adequate physical gold or silver, just enjoy and relax your life, knowing that you're adequately protected towards forthcoming financial crisis.

Short History of US Dollar: The US Dollar has been doing a sturdy downtrend since 1971 at the time President Nixon terminated the gold backing. This has been a catastrophic choice to the world’s financial system as well as the American economy. It has resulted in a complete downfall of the US Dollar and a monetary policy depending primarily only on financial debt. The global economy, along with the US economy, currently resides on a bed of quicksand. The main reason why exactly the US Dollar hasn't evaporated yet is the Petro-dollar scheme.

This had been a brilliant move by Nixon’s and his advisers in 1974 to create an agreement with Saudis to market crude oil in US Dollars and also use the proceeds to make investments in the US treasury bonds as well as in United States economy. Saudis even agreed to buy American weaponry in lieu of US military protection. And this is what has created an enormous need for US Dollars around the world to this day, However; this will soon end as Russia and China are launching a replacement for crude oil trading in US Dollars. This will likely cause the complete collapse of the greenback and even lead to the third world war.

I'd  include two key of points with regards to US Dollar as well as crude oil. Very first, the commercial hedgers currently have gone away from bearish trades versus the US Dollar. Second, in regards to the oil, the commercial hedgers are actively shorting the market coming from a historical perspective. It's going to be interesting to see how a US Dollar, crude oil, equities, as well as the precious metals, trade in for the upcoming weeks and months forward.

Crypto-Segment Market

The trading market week was taken over by a shallow, short-term static correction which fizzled out and about close to the critical support prices in Bitcoin cryptocurrency as well as Ethereum. Bitcoin kept on top of the $4150 level steady, while Ethereum coin systematically tested the $285 price range.

What's Ahead for Next Week

In the upcoming week, the economic calendar will provide an array of data which could drive up volatility, headlined with the Consumer Price Index, Producer Price Index and, the minute's release from the Federal Reserve's September meeting, initial October University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index, as well as the retail sales. For additional numbers next week to look for include data like Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) report and the NFIB Small Business Optimism Index. 

On international front reports which are going to be out next week worthy of a point out include China's Caixin's Purchasing Managers' Services Index, trade balance, and also lending statistics. Australia's consumer confidence. Japan's trade balance as well as core machine orders. India's trade balance, Consumer Price Index, and essential industrial production numbers.

Meanwhile, in Europe release of industrial production number and also investor confidence, UK's industrial and manufacturing production as well as trade balance. Furthermore of importance the Germany's trade balance and Consumer Price Index.
