Visualizing The Real Test For Market Bulls (In 1 Simple Chart)

October 7, 2017 Tyler Durden 0

As StockBoardAsset shows on the 24-year monthly ratio chart below, bulls have pushed the S&P:VIX price into uncharted territory this year.

The REAL test for sustained market euphoria is now occurring, as the ratio probes a two decade ascending diagonal (red) line responsible for past market tops.

After 8-9 years of a central bank induced bull market, and pushing +2803% gains from lows, investors are making the fatal decision to get back in, as the final stages are here explained in the ratio.

 

*  *  *

And for some more color, here are some bonus charts…

On a reward-to-risk basis, investors have not been this ‘offside’ since 1994…

 

And remember VIX speculators have never been more short…

And, uncertainty about VIX (VVIX) has never been higher relative to the uber-complacent level of VIX…

 

And finally, one wonders why, as Small Caps are bid to the moon on the heels of tax-reform-hype, investors are buying protection with both hands and feet

 

 

Is time up?

 

And all this is happening as the one main driver of global financial markets is dropping the most in a year

Which does not bode well for stocks…

But then again, it’s probably different this time.

Marzouki: Tunisia has lost its independence

Former Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki warned against Tunisia shifting from a corrupt tyrannical state to ‘a corrupt democracy’.

Bangladesh’s mega refugee camp plan ‘dangerous’: UN

COX’S BAZAR: A top UN official said Saturday Bangladesh’s plan to build the world’s biggest refugee camp for 800,000-plus Rohingya was dangerous because overcrowding could heighten the risks of deadly diseases spreading quickly.
The arrival of more than half-a-million Rohingya refugees who have fled an army crackdown in Myanmar’s troubled Rakhine state since Aug. 25 has put an immense strain on already packed camps in Bangladesh.
Hard-pressed Bangladesh authorities plan to expand a refugee camp at Kutupalong near the border town of Cox’s Bazar to accommodate all the Rohingya.
But Robert Watkins, the UN resident coordinator in Dhaka, told AFP the country should instead look for new sites to build more camps.
“When you concentrate too many people into a very small area, particularly the people who are very vulnerable to diseases, it is dangerous,” Watkins told AFP.
“There are stronger possibilities, if there are any infectious diseases that spread, that will spread very quickly,” he said, also highlighting fire risks in the camps.
“It is much easier to manage people, manage the health situation and security situation if there are a number of different camps rather than one concentrated camp.”
At the request of the Bangladesh government, the UN’s International Organization for Migration (IOM) has agreed to coordinate the work of aid agencies and help build shelters at the new camp site.
According to the IOM, the proposed camp will be the world’s largest, dwarfing Bidi Bidi in Uganda and Dadaab in Kenya — both housing around 300,000 refugees.
Three thousand acres of land next to the existing Kutupalong camp have been set aside for the new Rohingya arrivals.
“700,000 is a big camp… we and our partners will have our work cut out for us,” Joel Millman, an IOM spokesman, told reporters in Geneva on Friday.
But he added that UN agencies “wouldn’t be undertaking this if we didn’t think it was feasible.”
Bangladeshi officials say the new camp will help them better manage relief operations and ensure the safety of the Rohingya amid fears that dispersed camps could become recruiting grounds for militants.
This week Bangladesh reported 4,000-5,000 Rohingya were crossing the border daily, with 10,000 more waiting at the frontier.
Watkins said the continuing influx represented “a very big challenge” for aid agencies.
“Just when we start to think we are getting on top of the situation, the numbers go up. We are not where we need to be right now,” he said.
“There is still a lot more needed to be done.”

Forex Forecast for EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY and USDCHF for 09 -13 October 2017

October 7, 2017 MQL5: Traders' Blogs 0

First, a review of last week’s forecast:

– Recall that we weren’t able to word a more or less specific forecast for EUR/USD last week, as the opinions of the experts were split exactly in half: 50% of them voted for the growth of the pair and 50% for its fall. The market literally froze in anticipation of Friday’s data on the US labor market; once they were released, however, it reacted to them quite calmly as well. As a result, the pair returned to the August values and completed the week in the zone of the week’s Pivot Point at 1.1733; 

– The forecast for GBP/USD has fully come true. The overwhelming majority of experts, with the support of trend indicators on H4 and graphical analysis on H4 and D1, sided with the bears, expecting the pair to fall to the lower boundary of the medium-term rising channel. The level 1.3040 was named as the target, the pair reached it on Friday, losing about 375 points during the week;
