It is a brutal backdrop in markets with shares down 5 weeks together with practically 20% drop within the Nasdaq.
But whenever you take a look at a chart like this, it seems to be prefer it might get a lot worse.
USD/CAD has been consolidating within the 1.23-1.29 vary since August however could also be breaking out to the upside right now. It might want to shut above 1.30 to verify it however the measured goal can be round 1.36.
That is a quantity I talked with BNNBloomberg about two weeks in the past.
As I mentioned in that video, the main focus in markets has moved to progress. Inflation and price differentials have been the commerce earlier than however now progress worries are dominating. Day-after-day that China stays in lockdown provides to produce chain dangers as nicely.
I am beginning to consider the subsequent commerce after this one as nicely.
The issue for this decade for commodities is the dearth of funding in provide. If we have now a progress scare and a rout in markets, the much-needed selections on new tasks can be deferred for an additional 12 months. That can exacerbate provide shortages down the road.
Ultimately China will reopen and finally Fed charges will prime out. When that occurs, there aren’t going to be sufficient uncooked supplies to go round. Finally that may profit issues like oil and copper together with the resource-heavy Canadian economic system.
The query now’s time that commerce. I do not see any rush.
