Weekly Market Wrap: Has Inflation Peaked? Is the Stock Market Now Bullish?

The latest CPI data showed that inflation was almost flat for the month of July, which suggested the possibility that inflation had peaked, and might be turning down soon. But is this scenario likely?

Since there are so many factors that affect inflation, it is really impossible to tell at this point, so a simple way is to wait for the next 2-3 months and see if the CPI continues to make new lows, or proceeds to make new highs.

Because long-term trends like these take months or years to play out, so trying to predict the trend using 1 month of data is not very useful.

If we look at risk assets like stocks and crypto, they have all rallied a lot since the lows, so I’m not sure how much more they can go from these levels even if the Fed decides to keep the current interest rate levels at status quo.

This is because the impact of increased interest rates are still gradually taking effect throughout the economy, and might lead to further bearish impact. And the Fed is also unlikely to start cutting rates so soon either.

At this point I am more inclined to look for potential shorting opportunities in the stock market, but I will not pull the trigger until the trade signals are given.

Stay tuned!

Crypto Market Highlights

Trading Signals ETHUSD 110822

Looking at Ethereum (ETHUSD), the short and medium term trend is actually pretty bullish, with prices above the 20 and 50 EMA.

We can also see where the 20 and 50 EMA crossed over in the red circle.

As long as the momentum is bullish, I would avoid going short, and either stay out, or take small swing trades (buying on pullbacks and selling after small moves).

Do note that prices are still below the 200-EMA, hence long term trend is still bearish, and I have not switched into aggressive accumulation mode.
