Summer Stimulus on Standbye

Summer Stimulus on Standbye Chart
1 hour ago: 

If you didn't know it is summer, NASDAQ is up 0.2% on the week--the smallest +(-) weekly change of the year. S&P500 posts its smaller weekly change in over 3 1/2 months. Something will have to change to get US stimulus discussions moving and that might be a shudder in financial markets. USD is on the backfoot but metals remain weak. Watch the latest Virus developments below. US retail sales beat expectations in July but at a slower pace than June, while GBP is the strongest perfomer of the day, while silver is the biggest loser, highlighting once again that inverse GBP/XAG relation between the two that Ashraf has often tweeted about. Below is the chart of mainly consistent upside econ surprises, while oil remains hesistant in the short-term, but could be set for a break-out in autumn. Ashraf returns from holiday next week and he will update subscribers on last week's XAU-XAG call, days prior to their sharp pullback.

Precious Metals Mangled Aug 12, 2020 13:40: 

As Ashraf predicted last week in terms of price and time, precious metals took a sharp fall that turned into one of the largest declines in years. Euro and franc are the top performers against USD and Kiwi and JPY are lagging as indices attempt to retrace late Tuesday's losses. US July CPI came in as expected. Ashraf is on holiday til the rest of the week, but he pointed out a few voice notes and trade ideas to the WhatsApp Broadcast Group. أشرف العايدي سيكون في إجازة خلال الاسبوع الحالي


Executive Uncertainty Aug 10, 2020 10:28: 

A series of executive orders from Trump on Saturday shifted the balance of power in stimulus negotiations and added legal uncertainty. Friday's non-farm payrolls report beat expectations. CFTC positioning data showed euro net longs at a record. Ashraf will be going away on holiday this week, so his updates/tweets and messages to the WhatsApp Broadcast Group wil be a minimum. أشرف العايدي سيكون في إجازة خلال الاسبوع الحالي
