Hi everyone,

Just when we thought the worst is over from a world health perspective it now seems that cases of monkeypox have been recorded in the US, England, Italy, Sweden, Australia and Canada – signaling a potential global outbreak. Although not usually that serious (it of course can be), monkeypox is a viral infection which is usually mild and from which most people recover in a few weeks. The virus also doesn’t spread easily between people -I believe the fear stems from people around the world’s immune systems still being compromised. Let’s hope that the world is more prepared now for this type of event. It’s early days, but expect market turmoil if this gets out of hand. You need to Navigate the macro for some big setups.

With the world wide battle against inflation still raging, we might now see the focus turn to the Euro zone. This week European central bank president, Christine Lagarde said the first increase in interest rates in more than a decade may come in July. With inflation almost four times the 2% target and the US Federal Reserve already delivering a bigger than expected hike in April, critics have accused the ECB of moving too slowly.

Euro Inflation

Down 20% from its latest peak in January, the S&P 500 is still putting pressure on risk assets everywhere. This week Walmart and Target (the USA’s biggest retailers) also sent warning signs during earnings reports, about the state of the economy. Put very simply, if people need to spend more for the essentials they have less disposable income to spend on other, non-essential goods.

Australians also go to the polls today (21 May) and as ever a result not favoured by the financial markets could see some volatility this week for the AUD.

MAJORS

EUR/USD: Only looking for shorts. 1.12000 is the area I’m looking at. On the 4H you could look at 1.07400

USD/CHF: I’m still looking to long from the 0.94500 area.

GBP/USD: Looking at the weekly chart, I like the 1.3200 area for a short.

AUD/USD: Only looking to short at the moment. On the weekly, I’m looking at the 0.72800 area.

NZD/USD: Again on the weekly. Looking at 0.68200 for a short.

USD/JPY: Nowhere near anything at the moment. I’d start looking to long at 118.000

USD/CAD: I still like the look of this setup from where it currently is (to long) If you want to play it a little safer, wait for a daily candle close above the 200 ema.
