Weekly Market Wrap: Slowing Growth & Earnings in the US?

New: Join our 2.5 hours live workshop with Spencer to learn the basics of trading and make your first live trade!

US nominal growth is experiencing a significant deceleration, as evidenced by declining services PMI and lower momentum of Non-Farm Payrolls, with a negative rate of change for real growth and moderating wage growth indicating negative inflationary pressures.

Inflation in the US is currently affecting services the most, which is where nearly two-thirds of consumer spending goes.

Services include housing, insurance, healthcare, education, travel and hotel bookings, subscriptions, streaming, telecommunication, haircuts and more.

Inflation in the Eurozone is increasing due to excessive printing of real-economy money and a relatively inelastic basket of goods and services.

European core inflation may lag US core inflation by 6 months but it is expected to continue to increase over the next 3-6 months, which will force the ECB to be hawkish.

The Chinese economy is experiencing a significant reopening, which is expected to boost growth and force Emerging Markets fund managers to reallocate to China and other countries.

This push from the Chinese reopening is offset by the pull of a deteriorating global growth and inflation picture.

In light of these mixed news, has the stock market bottomed, or was the recent rally a bull trap?

USDSGD – As predicted, prices have fallen to the major support level. Congrats!

Since prices are quite oversold and the support is strong, this will be a good level to have a price rebound.

USDSGD is near the 5 year low, and is at the bottom of a wide trading range. Weekly RSI is in the oversold region.

Good chance of a rebound from these levels, which means if you are looking to buy US dollars, now is a good time to get it cheaper.
