As mentioned last week the US markets have moved back up to retest their March 1st all-time highs and they have done this on fewer and fewer stocks. This last week shows what can happen when these fewer and fewer stocks break traction, the market can lose control.
No surprises from the French election as Macron wins by a very large margin just like what the polls were showing just before the election. Don’t think that it will be all sunshine and rainbows for Macron moving forward for himself or for France. This is where the hard work begins as there are still deep issues France and the rest of Europe need to deal with that will just not go away.
Just how much more does the CAC 40, which is the French stock market, along with the other European stock markets have in them if Macron wins? Will it be the typical buy the rumour and sell the fact, effect taking place?
We are back to the crossroads once more with the Aussie and US markets, as we are within Cooee of retesting the all-time highs in the US and the highest top in the Aussie market since the end of the 2007-2009 Bear market. Do we break on through to the other side?
All eyes will be on France this weekend as they go to the polls. Their system is a little different to our own. If there is no clear cut winner when they vote on Sunday then there will be a round two of voting in two weeks’ time between the top 2 candidates. The winner of this will become France’s new leader. Why is this of any concern to us or the markets you may be wondering?
We are 6 weeks on from the all-time highs made on the 1st of March for the US markets and have been working lower ever since. We are seeing a rotation for the moment from the US into other markets. More report on this using stock charts technical analysis.
Tuesday 21st March 2017 turned out to be an important date for the US markets as they suffered their largest one day fall in over half a year. This coincided with the Equinox which was mentioned last week “The markets can change trend around this time”.
The FED raised interest rates 0.25% as expected and the US markets moved up on the back of this.
Well, it is a surprise as the US markets didn’t make new all-time highs over the last week. In fact they suffered their longest and largest move down since early November.
