It’s time to take some chips off the table

January 22, 2021

Today's slide deck: https://bit.ly/3sLcQ7Z   - 

Today, we look at whether it is time to take a few chips off the table at minimum on a few signs that the most speculative assets have hit a rough patch, as we question the ability of "story"  and "theme" companies with zero earnings to continue their vertical ascent. Action in the commodities space and positioning there are likewise a headwind for the reflationary narrative at this time. We also take a  look at how to hedge for a possibly correction across markets.. Today's call with Peter Garnry on equities, Ole Hansen on commodities, and John J. Hardy hosting and on FX.

Today, we look at markets rolling over across all asset classes despite Biden's $1.9trn stimulus plan and a dovish Fed chair Powell saying interest rates will not be hiked anytime soon unless something dramatic happens to inflation. Markets are questioning whether large parts of the stimulus plan can get through US Congress and as result equities and yields are lower today. We also discuss the Trump administration's blacklist of Xiaomi and earnings today from major US banks such as JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup. We also discuss fading momentum in commodities and especially in crude oil as the reflation trades are pausing for now. Today on the call are Peter Garnry on equities and Ole Hansen hosting and on commodities.
