    I suggest waiting until the Singapore "triumphant success" is read by intelligent humans and the unravelling that the "discovery", that nothing was decided, starts to sink in.

    The algos don't do fake news.

    An interesting Chart. Three attempts thus far to break through the ceiling of about 26,500.





    -----------------------------------------------------------------


    Dow Jones jumps 353 points on hopes of de-escalating US-China trade tensions


    Donald Trump will have an "extended meeting" with Xi Jinping at next week's G20 summit in Japan.


    Tweet ...

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

    Had a very good telephone conversation with President Xi of China. We will be having an extended meeting next week at the G-20 in Japan. Our respective teams will begin talks prior to our meeting.



    On Wall Street, the Dow Jones index surged 353 points (or 1.4 per cent) to 26,466.

    This was after US President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday (local time) that he "had a very good telephone conversation with President Xi [Jinping] of China".

    "We will be having an extended meeting next week at the G20 in Japan. Our respective teams will begin talks prior to our meeting."

    The broader S&P 500 added 1 per cent, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq advanced 1.4 per cent.

    US markets were also spurred by growing investor confidence that the Federal Reserve would cut interest rates in the coming months.


    The Fed is widely expected to leave interest rates unchanged at its two-day policy meeting that ends on Wednesday (local time), while laying the foundation for a cut later this year.


    The US central bank is scheduled to release its statement at 4:00am (AEST) on Thursday.




    -----------------------------------------------------------------



    U.S. President Donald Trump is warning of a catastrophic stock market crash, but only if he isn't re-elected in next year's presidential race.

    This week, key central banks around the world will meet to discuss which way interest rates should move, and all eyes are on the U.S. economy - with the expectation of a market tantrum if interest rates are not cut.

    Hence the opening chart, if there is no cut, or talk of an imminent cut and the DOW at it's apparent ceiling are we in for another decent pull-back?

    ME? I'm staying fully invested for the moment. If the Fed cuts or strongly hints it will cut, the DOW might take off and I want to stay on the dance floor for that song.

    ^ One of this is my current signature

    ---

    US rate cut ahead

    The Fed held borrowing costs steady, as expected, but its statement hinted at a future rate cut — as it dropped its previous references to being "patient" about adjusting rates.
    "The [Federal Open Market] Committee continues to view sustained expansion of economic activity, strong labour market conditions, and inflation near the committee's symmetric 2 per cent objective as the most likely outcomes," it said.


    However, it added that "uncertainties about this outlook have increased" — which was seen as a reference to the unresolved US-China trade war.
    By saying it "will act as appropriate to sustain" economic expansion, the Fed signalled rate cuts of as much as 0.5 percentage points by the end of this year.
    Nearly half its policymakers now show a willingness to lower borrowing costs over the next six months.


    Even policymakers who did not write down a forecast for a rate cut this year believe "that the case for somewhat more accommodative policy has strengthened", Fed chairman Jerome Powell said in a news conference following the meeting.


    The Fed had to tread a fine line at this week's two-day policy meeting.
    "At the end of the day what they [the Fed] want to do is give a nod to the market," said Kristina Hooper, chief global market strategist at Invesco.

    "Expectations had gotten so dovish that they need to give a nod to that, but at the same time not make any commitment and be forced to cut rates later on if conditions perhaps changed."

    Many analysts believe the US central bank will cut interest rates as early as July to prop up the economy.

    Following on from ... http://teakdoor.com/the-teakdoor-lou...ml#post3961237 (Dow Jones plunges 1,068 points, Wall Street bloodbath intensifies)

    The DJIA was up 244 points, close to 1% last night and has pushed through that important ceiling.
    Assuming the Fed cuts rates in the next month or two and retains a dovish tone in it's outlook statements, the DJIA should power on for some more months yet ... maybe even till Christmas.



    I'm still staying fully invested for the moment.

    The DJIA is of less interest to me than the $ to baht exchange rate. Hoping the Fed rate cut and China's economic decline will strengthen the greenback a bit.

    Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing? Or is it the 20 years to build a reputation and 5 to ruin it line.

    Just kidding. And hey no guts no glory. As for myself I went on the defensive as I hit 21.5% ytd last month and am more than happy with that. Sure If I had stayed the course I'd be up three Lao houses since then but I'm going with the when people are greedy be fearful rule.

    My heavy pic was/is way above the line into overbought territory and when it does, and it will, make a correction I'll jump back in.

    That's how I play......

    the fish.

    Just watched documentary about ENRON, they were master's of following trend of Dow Jones, big constant pay outs to various supporting analyst helped them gain their position and huge credit line with top banks, interesting docu...

    I'm up just over 60% ytd. At the start of the year I had a margin loan LVR of 36%.
    Since, then I've been selling into strengths and reduced LVR down to 14% and intend to reduce it further.
    Will probably go to 0% within the next 2 months

    I hear ya Norton. While I am enjoying my AMZN stock run p and my IRA growth I am more interested in the exchange rate. 32+ is a good number. We built our house when it was 35 /36.

    One things that a pain in the ass is my salary is paid here in Thai Baht but wired from US so if its lower then agreed upon exchange rate in my offer, I have to expense the difference to recover it which is OK but they deposit that to my US acct not here.
