1. Global and US Market Outlook for Nov-Dec


TTN November-December 2017 Outlook: The Art of the Deal

For the next couple of months the macro news cycle will be focused on the progress of a number of significant political and economic deals that have been under intense negotiation. From to the tax reform bill in Washington, to the oil producers’ production accord, to the Brexit talks in Europe, key deals with global implications will see major developments in the weeks ahead. Central banks are also in the process of completing their bargain with the markets: having spared the world from a depression by implementing extreme accommodation, some monetary policy authorities have begun withdrawing stimulus now that the danger has passed.

Developments on all of these fronts will play a strong part in market movements as 2017 comes to a close. Interest rates will be gradually rising as central banks wean the markets off accommodation, while the steady rise in stocks could see a correction if the bond yield curve doesn’t steepen or if some political deals and promised fiscal measures hit roadblocks.

bond futures; What a symmetrical chart! I think we can all appreciate markets that provide a logical, rational appearance even though markets do tend to irrationality. This market has absorbed key Macroeconomic information most notably the appointment of a successor to Janet Yellen, Jerome “Jay” Powell. As such, the dovish tone of that selection, rather than the potential appointment of Taylor (perceived to be more of a Hawk) has lifted prices to the higher end of the range in the 154.00 area, I would look for this market to “prepare for the next fed rate decision in December and work toward the lower end of the range toward the 150.00 area. As once again, the reality of rate increases will be the dominant factor affecting prices in the near term. Have a great weekend everybody and even a better trading week ahead.
