Market Roundup - 17th January 2012

It looks as though China may well be THE story for 2012. And not necessarily in a good way.

Inevitably, the Chinese construction and real estate boom may well be over. The knock-on effect will have global implications, for example, a falling demand for iron ore, copper, lumber and manpower. Losses on real estate-related investment will damage consumer confidence and undermine the domestic demand for Western imports.

Market Roundup - 22nd November 2011

October, which is traditionally the most bullish month of the year, especially if we ignore the rather unfortunate statistical aberrations of 1929, 1987 and 2008, has not disappointed those of us who have kept faith in the market recovery. The current consensus amongst Fund Managers is that the market is primed to rally until year-end. So, the worst is over. Or is it?

 

From a technical perspective, all will be revealed very soon. There is a significant triangle formation in progress, the breakout of which will determine the direction of the market until Santa appears in the fireplace.

Market Roundup - September 2011

Kevin Barry of the Traders & Investors Club discusses his market positions for the month ahead as well as presenting our regular summary of the recent global market action. Kevin also reveals his outlook for the FTSE over the next several years. Unfortunately, it is not a pretty picture.

Since last we met, the US Dollar has broken out to the upside of the trading range within which it had been languishing for the past six months. Of course, the Eurozone crisis is positive for the Dollar and Kevin does not discount the possibility that we could see Euro/Dollar parity over the long term.

But surely the Dollar is a basket case? Everybody knows that.
