Federal Reserve economic snapshot of USA economy

Federal Reserve economic snapshot of USA economy

How do these charts work?

Check out these forward data snapshot into the USA economy. This is all provided for by the St Louis Fed from a dataset called FRED. Also, I am able to capture from another source like Quandl. Anyhow, this will break down where the market stands from the consumer, manufacturing point of view. I find this very useful which can help in setting which sectors may get hot in the upcoming markets. It also confirm which way the economy may go as well.

If you like this data, you may be interested in this as I plan to post more of this frequently

 

NEW ranking profile for 315 crypto currency pairs buy signals

NEW ranking profile for 315 crypto currency pairs buy signals

Assumption:  this focuses on buy signals on the long side for now only

I want to know if I am the only one doing this type of ranking system with so let me know by commenting in the Youtube video from below.

This is site shows how bearish the crypto market has become as found at CoinMarketCap.  I have found 4 possible opportunities based on daily timeframe with buy signals. As a result I show with indicator charts to show how these can backup the buy signals.

A few things to note that can impact your entry/buying decision:

  1. Volume is a huge factor but I need to figure out proper thresholds for both daily and hourly timeframes. In order to speed up these reports, I can easily filter out those opportunities based on these thresholds.
  2. We can now factor momentum vs volatility vs valuation and so on based on what the video and spreadsheet data holds
  3. Should I breakout the short and long opportunities which can be properly lined up with the specific harmonic patterns

Once properly implemented, I can determine the correct pairs to buy with proper allocation of capital available for that trading. There are numerous factors to consider but as they say, this data does not lie. There is no more guessing or trading on imitation any more. It all data driven which will eliminate human influence.

 

You will find this sample spreadsheet file but do understand the data is well over a week old so don’t try trading off it. Also, if that was the case as you should never trade off of a crutch like this.

I also plan to apply some machine learning elements to get further data, figure out the weightings based on the indicators, and build an overall report with charts and logic built in.

Equity/bond correlations – past and future

Quantlabs is pleased to be partnering with Savvy Investor, the world’s leading knowledge network for institutional investors. You may wish to consider joining their platform – it’s entirely free.

The most important number you rarely think about

For most of the 21st Century, equity and bond returns have been negatively correlated, allowing multi-asset investors to rely on their complementary behaviour to moderate volatility and drawdown risk. However, history shows that the period from 2000-2017 has been an exception to the rule. For most of the previous 200 years, equities and bonds had a positive correlation – they tended to move in the same direction.

As the direction of monetary policy changes, how will correlations be affected? Below we list some of the best papers, curated by the Savvy Investor research team, which explore stock-bond correlations in more detail:

Balanced portfolios: Safer without bonds? (Hermes IM, Jan 2018)
Investors in balanced portfolios have previously been able to rely on the complementary behaviour of stocks and bonds to moderate volatility and drawdown risk. However, this may be the exception to the rule.

Stock/Bond Correlations: Relationship Troubles (UBS AM, Feb 2018)
UBS’s Investment Insights document considers the correlation between bonds and equities, its drivers and the likelihood that we are entering a new and higher correlation regime between these two core asset classes.

Do bonds diversify equity risk? (Wellington, Feb 2017)
Due to higher correlations of government bonds to equities, the risk mitigating benefit of holding these assets has diminished. Wellington believes investors should consider using alternative strategies for risk diversification.

Stocks/Bonds: The Fire and Ice Debate (Man Group, March 2017)
The last 20 years have seen negative correlations between stock and bond prices. This is against the precedent of history: for the preceding 250 years the correlation was consistently positive. Man Group investigates why this is the case.

A Century of Stock-Bond Correlations (RBA, 2014)
This study by the Reserve Bank of Australia examines stock and bond correlations and their drivers in order to draw conclusions about changes in correlation over time.

The equity-bond correlation – the most important number you rarely think about (AON Hewitt, 2014)
The stock-bond correlation is a vital assumption. AON Hewitt models correlations in this paper dynamically, in order to capture the range of outcomes they can take and their variation over time.

Trends in Stock-Bond Correlations (RIETI, 2015)
This paper discusses long-run trends in comovements in stock and bond market returns, examining the impact of stock market volatility, interest rates, yield spreads, VIX and flight to quality behaviours upon equity/bond correlations.

Treasuries for the Long Run (Callan, Jan 2018)
With many asset owners considering an allocation to long-term Treasuries, this paper by Callan reviews historical data and concludes that long-term Treasuries have a mixed record of offsetting equity risk.

Science and Art: A Framework to Unlock Multi-Asset Opportunities (AB, 2017)
For regulatory reasons, this paper is available only in the USA
Unconstrained, dynamic, integrated multi-asset solutions must be developed to address unwanted risk/return exposures and other asset allocation issues that arise from simple off-the-shelf portfolio combinations.

Two-Dimensional Risk Models Create Full Picture (William Blair blog, Feb 2018)
William blair uses two proprietary, forward-looking risk models to guide portfolio construction. This article explains how they quantify the present day unusual risk environment.

Inflation and the Stock Market: Understanding the ‘Fed Model’ (Bekaert and Engstrom, 2008)
In the US, high expected inflation has coincided with higher equity yields. This study shows that countries with a high incidence of stagflation should have relatively high correlations between bond yields and equity yields.

TONIGHT: Daily Analysis for April 9 ONLINE Meetup event

 

This is a reminder about the webinar event tonight. I will be showcasing all the latest tools I have been developing for market analysis with Dukascopy JForex. It seems everything is complete pretty well with the exception of flags, pennants, and wedges. I will even showcase my latest patterns which work extremely well for timing purposes and filtering out fake noise You can see a variety of videos at the bottom of this email to see them from last weeks data. Yes, this does also include popular Bitcoin opportunities as well. I am also going through ANOTHER analysis of the US Fed for forward looking econometric opportunities as well as market sector analysis in all major European Union member countries. This is pretty solid stuff indeed if you ask me.

NOTE: This will be the last time I will be talking about the above topic outside of my paying members.

Also, next week I will be diving deeper into how these how these patterns work on April 16. Do not expect this even to be recorded because of the ‘sensitivity’ of this topic. The fewer people that know about it, the better. I hope you understand that

Deep dive market analysis for Apr 5 with Bitcoin

Here is another market analysis using the patterns. I am using these to filter on a first pass to remove all false positive noisy data. This appears to work when you combine with the other usual indicators. This is a 1 hours video for you to go through. This will be same idea I have for my LIVE webinar on Monday night at 7 PM EDT that we talk about this info. See below for the details after this video
This does includes the new patterns to filter out the many false positive signals
 

 

I must say this is a typical analytical process I intend to go through. After the scripts run against Dukascopy Jforex data, it seems the most logical place to ‘invest/trade’ is the German market index like DAX. With the US markets coming off, it seems that USA 30 is still a top pick but the charts clearly show downward momentum. Also, it seems forex is still flat while Bitcoin is somewhat risky. I really need to get these patterns implemented as soon possible to properly assess the bottoming process of risky decisions for market entry potential.

The Purpose of this Analysis

The purpose is pretty simple. As I have just introduced the latest course on ‘Python 3 for Infrastructure Algo Trading Components’, there is no reason why should not be learning this to control your ultimate destiny.

Interested in this course still? Here is the direct purchase link:

The idea of this analysis is no different when I did a much longer process a few weeks ago. Here is that at this link:

http://quantlabs.net/blog/

A newer video has been uploaded with yesterday’s analysis which is just over an hour. It does NOT go as deep as I did on March 15. This most recent video will definitely show the shortest drill down to high potential market analysis. Always remember the asset classes have been divided up into commodity (with Bitcoin), forex, and stock indices/ETFs. I have made many past videos on this.
