The Dow Market Movement

Image
  This Week Highlight - The Dow Market Movement Following the sign-into law of the USD1.9 Trillion stimulus by President Biden, we would expect the Dow market to soar gain. Indeed, the market did make fresh new-high but a bit short-live in trend! Suddenly, market traders are worrying of rising Bond yield that will put a lid on equity prices. Last Thursday wee hours in Asia, FED chair Powell reassured of keeping the interest rate near to zero through 2023 and led a jump in Dow again. Just one day before the weekend, policymakers said they have decided to end the capital ratio for the pandemic era in March. In simple words, all banks are to reduce their leverage in holding Treasury Bonds from the current capital reserve ratio. That means banks will be pushed to sell off some Bonds soon! Hence, the selling of Bonds will trigger a rise in yields again. Dow plunged 234 points on Friday at market close. In our economic evaluation, U.S. is caught in a slow pace while inflat

This Week Highlight - The Post Effect on U.S. Stimulus

Image
  The U.S. stimulus worth USD1.9 Trillion has been approved by the House and waiting to be signed into law by President Biden. Target timeline to complete the signatory on the dotted line is today, 14 March 2021. That also means President Biden has to execute his pen power in order to continue the issuance of unemployment benefits to low-income Americans after the expiry date. Last week, Dow Jones market clocked the historical fresh high again on Wednesday when it closed at 32,297 points. The worries on inflation pressure as an eye-washer to long traders have become a bear-trap. Sometime back, we have mentioned in this snippet on the ironical sarcasm of inflation in U.S. economy while so many Americans are cash-strapped due to loss of jobs. Since we are expecting the U.S. stimulus to be rolled out in March, the expanse of this public fund will be able to last for estimate 5-6 months. Practically, we expect the inflation will build up at strongest level sometime in mid-April to end

  On Wednesday 20 January, NETFLIX surged 15% in prices over just one trading session after the company announced 24 percent increment in revenue in 2020 and added 37 million paid subscribers. Last week was the departure of Trump and the inauguration of Biden. The Dow Jones market climbed in celebration. But if you think we are going to talk about this topic and getting tired of it, then you have guessed correctly! We are not interested to cover this topic as readers are getting worn out of hearing the name of Trump again and what he has done to the world! Let's talk about something about that can put real monies into your pocket this week. After NETFLIX shot up more than USD50 range following the financial results, we have discovered the Nasdaq Composite Index has crossed above 13,200 level and settled near at 13,457 at the end of Wednesday session. It seems like 14,000 benchmark is a sure thing before mid-February! Over the coming week to early February, we shall be expecti

This Week Highlight - The Post-BREXIT Deal

Image
  Just before Christmas, U.K. announced the good news of reaching a deal with the EU officials. This deal is unexpected and comes as a surprise gift to many traders who have been waiting to punt the Pound. The deal is agreed between the U.K. and the EU officials for a potential "zero tariff - zero quota" policy to be further ratified after the year-end. At least, the agreement in principle has been fixed in place while just waiting for the parliament to draw down the rules in January. IN the past, we have seen the final week of December to be illiquid in market. Even though there is any unexpected fundamental news, the market is still irresponsive until January. Hence, we foresee not much market movement in Pound until the GBP/USD might pierce above 1.3600 in January and hikes for 1.3800 level! Ironically, the coronavirus crisis has damaged and also helped the U.K. in getting the post-BREXIT deal. Currently, the covid-19 has mutated and resurged into a new second wave i

Will The SPY ETF Reach $500 By 2022?

  Every week, Benzinga conducts a sentiment survey to find out what traders are most excited about, interested in or thinking about as they manage and build their personal   portfolios . We surveyed a group of over 500 investors on whether the  SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust  (NASDAQ: SPY ) will reach $500 by 2022. What Are ETFs? ETF stands for exchange-traded funds. An ETF is an investment fund that trades on a stock exchange along with stocks for individual companies.  ETFs track a sector, represent a commodity (like  gold , oil or wheat) or sample a basket of stocks or bonds that meet a given criteria. The SPY ETF tracks the S&P 500. Exchange-traded funds are popular with investors given they can help mitigate risk in your portfolio. Tesla S&P Inclusion If you’re concerned the inclusion of  Tesla Inc  (NASDAQ: TSLA ) into the S&P 500 could  destabilize  the SPY ETF as a whole, consider the EV company represents only 1.6% overall weighting for the index fund.

  MW UPDATE: 'Holy smokes, I'm a $TSLA-naire!' Here's how quickly Tesla has turned modest investments into seven-figure windfalls   Shawn Langlois  A decade later and a $5,800 flyer in an upstart electric-car company would have turned a savvy or lucky investor into a millionaire. Or, in Brandon Smith's case, an initial investment of $10,000 in 2017 along with some small additional purchases along the way did the trick.  Earlier this month, Smith celebrated his "TSLA-naire" status in a tweet:  Smith, who doesn't even own a Tesla (TSLA) vehicle, is one of countless fans who have pledge their undying devotion to Elon Musk and, to this point, have been rewarded handsomely for sticking to their plans.  "I don't make six figures, and I don't know anything about puts and options," Smith told Bloomberg News in a recent interview (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-12-18/tesla-s-tsla-stock-price-an-army-of-millionaire-retail-traders-

  MW Russell 2000 marks 13th record of 2020 but Dow, S&P 500 log modest gains in penultimate session before Christmas   Most U.S. stock benchmarks finished modestly higher Wednesday, losing some momentum in the final hour of trade, as investors shook off economic reports that painted a mixed, and unsteady picture of the economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, ahead of the Christmas holiday. The small-capitalization Russell 2000 index outstripped its larger-cap brethren, finishing at a record, up more than 1%, and marking its 13th of 2020. Meanwhile, the larger-cap S&P 500 index ended up less than 0.1% at around 3,690, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.4% to about 30,129, while the Nasdaq Composite Index closed 0.3% at 12,271. U.S. economic data out Wednesday was mixed. There were 803,000 applications for jobless benefits in the most recent week, a decline of 89,000 from the prior week though the labor market overall remains weak. Personal incomes slid 1.1% in Nove
