Weekly Market Wrap: Fully Loaded on Short Positions!

Join our Telegram channel (9000+ subscribers) for daily market analysis & trading tips: t.me/synapsetrading

Last week, as the market continued to edge higher on weakness, we started initiating large short positions on stocks, crypto and REITs.

This was due to many bearish overbought technical indicators, as well as bearish price patterns like bear flags or head and shoulders patterns.

Markets were mostly flat the whole week until Friday, when stocks plummeted after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said in his Jackson Hole speech the central bank won’t back off in its fight against rapid inflation.

Now our shorts are greatly in the money, and we will monitor our positions to see if the decline continues next week.

This could potentially be the biggest trade of the year, if markets continue to fall.

Portfolio Highlights

Trading Signal Portfolio 230822

Portfolio updates:

Mainly riding the bearish momentum now, and seeing if it leads to a resumption of the bear trend.

 

Forex & Commodities Market Highlights

Trading Signals Strength 220822

With most risk assets heading down again, USD has risen to the top as a safe haven.

 

Trading Signals EURUSD 230822

Looking at the weekly chart of the EURUSD, you can see that we started calling for shorts since 1.14, and now prices have declined more than 12%.

EURUSD has now broken the crucial 1.000 price level again, and is likely to continue heading downwards.

We can look for more pullback opportunities to short.

 

Trading Signals GBPCHF 240822

GBPCHF is bearish on the daily chart, but having bullish momentum on the H1 (hourly) chart.

Watch and see if there is any price rejection at the resistance zone here to initiate a short trade.

 

Trading Signals GBPCHF 2 240822

Following up on the H1 chart of GBPCHF, the trade has triggered and is starting to head down.

 

Trading Signals NZDCHF 220822 1

Another way to trade the CHF strength would be to short the NZDCHF using a tight SL.

The NZDCHF has broken below resistance, and formed a bear flag.

 

Trading Signals CHFJPY 230822 1

Besides all the USD trading positions we have been posting the past few weeks, you can also consider looking at the CHF.

The CHFJPY is breaking out of a small rectangle pullback, and we can enter early using a tight SL.

 

Trading Signal WTIUSD 240822

Previously, I thought the breaking of support would be bearish for Crude Oil (WTIUSD), but after seeing the tweezer bottom candles and the bullish pin bar, I think it is more likely that was a false breakout and prices will now head higher.

This is why I closed all my short positions on commodities yesterday.

Also, looking at the daily news on water/energy shortage and rising food prices, I think it would be better to be neutral or long on commodity prices.

 

Trading Signals Germany 230822

Power prices in Germany surging

 

Stock & Bond Market Highlights

Trading Signals China Collapse 200822

 

Trading Signal US100 240822

Following up on the NASDAQ 100 (US100), I have been accumulating shorts, and prices have indeed fallen, giving me some decent profits.

Now prices have fallen to another critical point, and the breakout on either side will determine the trend for the next few months.

So to be safe, I will be taking some profits, to stay nimble in case I need to switch to long instead.

 

Trading Signals US500 190822

We have hit the top of the trendline for S&P 500 (US500), and the RSI oscillator is showing an overbought signal.

There might be some correction soon.

Bitcoin (BTCUSD) looks like it might finally have broken out of the bear flag pattern, have added more short positions to this.
