    "We continue to look for a stronger USD, a view which we have held over the last six months," HSBC analysts say and list their responses to the five main bearish arguments listed below.

    1. *Fed rates are near the peak and are already priced in:* Rates may be moving closer to neutral, but this is not the same as the peak rate. Doubts remain about when and how quickly other central banks will raise rates. Also, the level may matter, not just the rate of change.

    2. *The US economy is set to slow, while Eurozone growth will pick up:* US growth estimates are being revised upwards, while the Eurozone needs growth to recover just to meet existing forecasts. Survey data in Eurozone remains challenging. The market seems to assume a Eurozone recovery but cannot explain the big growth miss so far in 2018.

    3. *Structural forces point to a weaker USD, overwhelming any cyclical support from higher interest rates:* Eurozone has its structural frailties too, as Italy’s tribulations illustrate. Internal Eurozone imbalances are difficult to address. Fiscal issues can open the question of whether the EUR is divisible, while the USD is not.

    4. *Emerging markets FX is structurally sound and cheap, with USD weakness the flipside:* We believe emerging market FX does not offer value and those that are ‘cheap’ reflect their risk profile. Foreigners still own much of the local market, suggesting less scope for a rush back into these currencies. Macro frailties remain.

    5. *The USD has not rallied enough or at all given what should have been supportive developments – this shows it is already expensive*: The USD has continued to rally on a broader basis, even if this is not fully captured by the USD Index (DXY). The USD is not expensive on our metrics, and has room to catch up with these developments, in our view. Reported by 3 hours ago.

    · *USD/JPY is currently trading at 111.81 with a high of 112.24 and a low of 111.62 while the yen has maintained a favouritism following the recent rout in global equities and the mounting tensions over various geopolitical variables which are weighing on investor sentiment. *

    USD/JPY had been consolidating on the 112 handle in tow stages since the 8th October, once above 112.87 and then between 111.87/112.21 that finally gave way to the bearish pressures down to 111.62 at the start of this week. 

    "The market tone remains dominant as market participants consider the balance of risk in the aftermath of last week’s turbulence," analysts at Scotiabank explained. "Domestic risk is limited to the release of trade and CPI data ahead of BoJ Gov. Kuroda’s speech on Friday. Kuroda’s weekend comments underscored the importance of maintaining the yield curve control policy, given that inflation remains well below the Bank’s 2% goal," the analyst added. 

    *Focus on the dollar*

    Meanwhile, there are a number of arguments for a softer dollar from here out and the following are a list of 5 reasons that one might take a bearish view, rebutted by bulls at HSBC:

    · "Bearish USD argument 1 - Fed rates are near the peak and are already priced in. HSBC pushback - Rates may be moving closer to neutral, but this is not the same as the peak rate. Doubts remain about when and how quickly other central banks will raise rates. Also, the level may matter, not just the rate of change.
    · Bearish USD argument 2 - The US economy is set to slow, while Eurozone growth will pick up. HSBC pushback - US growth estimates are being revised upwards, while the Eurozone needs growth to recover just to meet existing forecasts. Survey data in Eurozone remains challenging. The market seems to assume a Eurozone recovery but cannot explain the big growth miss so far in 2018.
    · Bearish USD argument 3 - Structural forces point to a weaker USD, overwhelming any cyclical support from higher interest rates. HSBC pushback - Eurozone has its structural frailties too, as Italy’s tribulations illustrate. Internal Eurozone imbalances are difficult to address. Fiscal issues can open the question of whether the EUR is divisible, while the USD is not.
    · Bearish USD argument 4 – Emerging markets FX is structurally sound and cheap, with USD weakness the flipside. HSBC pushback – We believe emerging market FX does not offer value and those that are ‘cheap’ reflect their risk profile. Foreigners still own much of the local market, suggesting less scope for a rush back into these currencies. Macro frailties remain.
    · Bearish USD argument 5 - The USD has not rallied enough or at all given what should have been supportive developments – this shows it is already expensive. HSBC pushback - The USD has continued to rally on a broader basis, even if this is not fully captured by the USD Index (DXY). The USD is not expensive on our metrics, and has room to catch up with these developments, in our view."

    *USD/JPY levels*

    · Support levels: 111.50 111.20 110.85
    · Resistance levels: 111.90 112.25 112.60

    "Technically, the pair is firmly bearish," *Valeria Bednarik*, Chief Analysts at FXStreet explained. "USD/JPY is accelerating its decline below the 100 and 200 SMA, as technical indicators head south within negative territory, the Momentum after failing to surpass its mid-line and the RSI nearing oversold readings. The 100 DMA stands a few pips below the daily low, around 111.50, providing a strong dynamic support that once broken, should lead to a steeper decline during the upcoming sessions."

    Wuzhen Theatre Festival to Unveil New Experiences in Performance Art at Outdoor Carnival WUZHEN, China, Oct. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The sixth Wuzhen Theatre Festival, scheduled to be held from October 18 - 28, 2018, will feature, in addition to its roster of specially-invited plays performed by masters in the world of theater and opera, an Outdoor Carnival that will play host to over 100 troupes and acts who will stage more than 1,800 performances in Wuzhen's Xizha District throughout the 11-day event.Rikaze Tibetan Drama Troupe putting on a performance

    The Art Birds Union from France, a group comprised of over 100 independent troupes and artists from the four corners of the globe, has been staging performances at various festivals worldwide. They have been the undisputed stars at the Outdoor Carnival during past Wuzhen Theatre Festivals, their performances watched and admired by many of the town's visitors and residents. This year, they will put on 103 captivating shows by eight performance teams: the Théâtre du Tumulte, the Recycle Band and the Théâtre de Chaillot from France, the Teatro di Incontro from Italy, Unintentional Theatre from Canada, Men in Back from Germany, the Suitcase Theatre from Switzerland and China's own Wulong Drama Troupe. The performances will include a giant inflatable puppet parade, live music, grand stilts tours, acrobatic feats, comedy skits and puppet dance performances, demonstrating the charm of the world-class street art to festival-goers.

    This year's event adds many new acts and performance forms which have not been seen at past festivals, such as VS Carnival, a collection of vaudeville skits performed by the Taiwan Clown Mime Group, the experimental drama New Zhangsan Borrows Boots performed by the Seven Plays Theatre Company, live sand painting performance Prequels of Journey to the West performed by Sanji Sand Art, and Kill Array, integrating various elements including the spirit of a samurai warrior and the concept of a two-dimensional world against a backdrop of rock music performed by the Japan Broken Sky Route Band.

    In addition to a wide range of carnival acts, this year's Wuzhen Theatre Festival will also include shows featuring many forms of Chinese performance art. The Rikaze Tibetan Drama Troupe, which made its debut at last year's festival, will take center stage with its unique performance style that embodies local customs in Tibet. The audience will also be treated to a performance of Sichuan Opera by the Yibin City Youth Sichuan Opera Ensemble from Sichuan province, as well as an opera performed by Qimen Mulian, a troupe from Anhui province, and santiao xiangsheng, a traditional Chinese comedic art performed by the local Wuqing Drama Club from Tongxiang City. The festival will also feature a Wannan Shadow Play which is a form of theater with shadow puppets that originated in Anhui province, as well as a musical interlude led by the morin khuur, or horsehead fiddle, a stringed musical instrument handed down through the generations by members of the Mongol Nationality, one of China's ethnic groups. There will also be a performance of Jiangxi Opera, among the staging of other theatrical genres recognized as an integral part of China's intangible cultural heritage.

    *About the Outdoor Carnival*

    The Wuzhen Theatre Festival's Outdoor Carnival, which takes place in Wuzhen Xizha Scenic Spot, consists of a series of artistic performances in public spaces rather than inside traditional theaters. The Outdoor Carnival differentiates itself from the familiar theater experience by transforming the entire venue into a stage that provides artists with a free performance space encompassing some of Wuzhen's traditional wooden houses, stone bridges, streets and even one of the sculling boats. The theatrical events are performed in an environment that combines local nature and culture. The Outdoor Carnival brings multiple performance art forms together at the venue, including street theater from around the world, contemporary performance art, joint musical performances as well as Chinese folk art and acrobatics, with the aim of providing those who love theater with a more immersive experience.Les ours géants en liberté (Giant Bears on the Loose) performed by the Théâtre du Tumulte from France

    Dublin, Oct. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Hospital Beds Market By Product (Beds, Accessories), Area Of Use (Critical, Bariatric, Med Surg, Pediatric, Maternal), Technology (Powered, Manual), Type Of Care (Curative, Long Term), End User (Hospital, Homecare, Elderly) - Global Forecast To 2023" report has been added to *'s* offering.

    Hospital/Medical Beds Market Worth 3.14 Billion USD By 2023Factors such as an increasing elderly population coupled with growing prevalence of chronic diseases, a growing number of hospitals, and the launch of technologically advanced beds - are driving the growth of the global medical/hospital beds market. Moreover, the emergence of smart beds and robotic beds, increasing demand for beds for long-care, and growing medical tourism further supports the growth of this market. However, a rising preference for minimally invasive surgeries (eliminating the necessity of longer hospital stays) and a decreasing number of beds in public hospitals hinders the growth of this market.

    The medical beds market for hospitals (end user segment) commanded the largest share of the global market in 2017. This is mainly attributed to growing healthcare expenditure across the globe, and the increasing prevalence of various acute and chronic diseases resulting in greater admission rate in hospitals.

    An in-depth analysis of the geographical scenario of the industry provides detailed qualitative and quantitative insights about the five major geographies (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa) along with the coverage of major countries in each region. Europe commanded the largest share of the global medical/hospital beds market in 2017, followed by North America, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. The large share of this region is mainly attributed to the factors such as the presence of a large number of hospitals, growing ageing population, and relatively greater access to healthcare.*Key Topics Covered:**1.

    Continued renewable energy investments underline Walmart’s efforts to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.

    BENTONVILLE, Arkansas, HOUSTON, Texas, Oct. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Walmart and EDP Renewables (EDPR) announce three power purchase agreements (PPA) that will enable the construction of three new utility-scale wind farms – developed, owned, and operated by EDPR – in the states of Illinois and Indiana.  Walmart’s cumulative 233 megawatt (MW) investment includes the following:

    · 123 MW from the Bright Stalk Wind Farm (a 205 MW project in McLean County, Illinois, with start of operations expected in 2019; this PPA is a part of the announcement EDPR issued on July 3, 2018)
    · 60 MW from the Headwaters II Wind Farm (a 200 MW project in Randolph County, Indiana, with start of operations expected in 2020; this PPA is a part of the announcement EDPR issued on July 3, 2018)
    · 50 MW from the Harvest Ridge Wind Farm, formerly Broadlands Wind Farm (a 200 MW project in Douglas County, Illinois, with start of operations expected in 2019; this PPA is a part of the announcement EDPR issued on May 10, 2018)

    Walmart’s purchase through these agreements will produce enough electricity to power more than 60,000 average homes in Illinois and 15,000 average homes in Indiana with renewable energy each year.  Additionally, these wind farms will bring economic benefits to their respective regions and states in the form of jobs, landowner and tax payments, and money spent in local communities.

    “Walmart has a goal to be supplied by 100 percent renewable energy and sourcing energy from wind farms developed by partners like EDP Renewables is a core component in the mix,” said Mark Vanderhelm, vice president of energy for Walmart.  “Wind energy is an important part of our energy portfolio, and Walmart plans to continue our efforts to pursue renewable energy projects that are right for our customers, our business, and the environment.”      

    “The declining cost of renewable power has led to an increase in clean energy procurement from companies like Walmart in recent years.  The continued commitment from corporate entities in procuring renewable energy speaks volumes about the importance and value of securing fixed, competitive pricing over the long-term,” said Miguel Prado, EDP Renewables North America CEO.  “EDP Renewables appreciates its partnership with Walmart and commends the company in its efforts to source all of its energy from renewable sources.”

    EDP Renewables is a wind industry leader in the states of Illinois and Indiana.  To date, EDPR operates 797 MW of wind energy projects in Illinois and with the addition of the Bright Stalk Wind Farm and the Harvest Ridge Wind Farm, EDPR will further increase its footprint in Illinois, surpassing 1,200 MW, or 1.2 gigawatt (GW), of operational capacity by the end of next year. 

    EDPR also operates 801 MW of wind energy projects in Indiana.  With the completion of the construction of the 200 MW Meadow Lake VI Wind Farm, EDPR will exceed 1,000 MW, or 1 GW of operational capacity by the end of 2018. The company will continue to add to its renewable energy portfolio in the state in the coming years with the addition of the Headwaters II Wind Farm and the 200 MW Riverstart Solar Park that are expected to be operational in 2020 and 2022 respectively.

    · *The pair recorded multi-day peaks beyond the 1.1600 handle.*
    · *A bout of selling pressure dragged DXY to as low as the 94.80 region.*
    · *US Industrial Production expanded 0.3% MoM in September.*

    *EUR/USD* managed to advance and clinch fresh multi-day tops beyond 1.1600 the figure on Tuesday, although it has quickly faded the move afterwards.

    *EUR/USD up move halted near 1.1620*

    A sudden bout of selling pressure around the greenback forced the US Dollar Index to break below recent lows and therefore lifted the pair to fresh 2-week tops in the 1.1620/25 band, coincident with the 21-day SMA.

    In the meantime, there are no fresh headlines around Italy and the EU’s response after the country submitted the 2019 draft budget earlier today.

    Events-wise, the single currency managed to leave behind earlier poor results from the German/EMU ZEW survey, as investors continue to look for Italian politics/Brexit for direction.

    Across the pond, US Industrial Production expanded more than expected 0.3% MoM in September and Manufacturing Production rose 0.2% inter-month. Still in the US docket, JOLTs Job Openings surpassed estimates rising by 7.136M during August and the NAHB index ticked higher to 68 this month.

    *EUR/USD levels to watch*

    At the moment, the pair is up 0.10% at 1.1592 facing the next barrier at 1.1621 (high Oct.12) seconded by 1.1629 (100-day SMA) and then 1.1735 (high Aug.28). On the flip side, a break below 1.1535 (10-day SMA) would aim for 1.1432 (low Oct.9) and finally 1.1323 (200-week SMA). Reported by 5 hours ago.

  • 10/16/18--08:39: Lots of problems abound.....
  • The market feels as knackered as a pret baguette.Last week was just awful. Lots of problems abound. Headlines tell us various reasons for a bad week: Italy, political problems, higher bond yields, fall in oil prices. The temperature is higher than it should be in October! Take your pick! Looking further into the future it isn't so much Brexit to worry about, there will probably be some fudge. It's Corbyn. We are screwed if he gets in. The young have no idea what they will be voting in. The upside for me is I can just get out of the markets and go and do other things. Indeed, hey, maybe I ought to vote for him! Vote Jez. Sell, everything, go short, enjoy the profits. A bit selfish, I suppose, given the country will be screwed. October generally isn't a great month either, if there are falls it is often at this point. Anyhow what a weird week last week was! Summary for me was the main Isa lost £75k on paper just like that (literally just on market maker markdowns). It has recovered last couple of days. But .. some substantial ftse shorts brought in about more than that into the spreadbetting accounts as those of you who came to the seminars could see for yourselves. So how did this crazy few days all work out for me? On the previous Friday at the follow up seminar everything had seemed normalish.. though shares didn't seem that happy and were heading down a bit. So we discussed shorting quite a lot. Rather handily as it proved. Indeed a couple of FTSE shorts we made on the day ended up £5,000 in profit by a week later. In fact one just put on for £1 ended up £400 higher! I did emphasise in a falling market forget stop losses and concentrate on getting out if you bought something but then the market continues to fall. So I bought one or two things but early on Monday it was obvious to get out quick and they got booted for small losses (around £150 ish). An example was a share at 460 - looked like very goodsupport there so bought a small starter pos. But, get out quick was set at 455. On Monday it was hit and I was out. Just as well. Three days later it was 410. If I'd stayed in now I would be down more than 10pc - instead I could soon just buy back a lot lower. Tuesday I top sliced, sold a lot of things and pushed up the cash pile and added to shorts. Cashed in on some bigger longer-term ones. Wed and Thu I added more shorts, but began to look at potential bargains too. Fri I cashed in some of the giant profits building in shorts and began looking at buying. However some big shorts remain. Right now in the mood to take advantage of some markdowns. My cash pile has gone up to over the £500,000 mark now. That money will sit there and be used if there is a real smashdown. Gives me firepower to buy shares at distressed prices at some point. But I did sit there on Tuesday as I sold stuff off. And I thought. How about just selling everything and taking a year out? After all, I've made a ton. I don't need more money. And I have three writing projects that I am really enjoying working on but would love to do full time for a while. I figured I could get out of everything in a day, easy. How would I feel about it? Maybe good? Maybe weird? Maybe sell most of everything? How much life do I have left and how much more do I want to give watching numbers going up and down? But then I think. Yes, I still enjoy it, love the detective work, that is a pleasure. At the moment I think there must be a half way house and that is to reduce heavily, buy less and work on the other projects more. I think I am just about there in the half way house department with the big cash pile. The shorts take a little looking after though. I am going to be very careful about what I buy new and get out if it goes wrong. Even if you find something good that doesn't mean it won't go down in a panicky general sell off. In fact nearly every chart we looked at yesterday had a down tail spike at the end. The question is, are these down spikes real or not? Will they all resume where they were? Or is there more downside to come? I really wish I knew for sure, that would help! But. During the sell off last week I resolutely held on to a number of shares that had declared ahead of statements or otherwise nothing much had changed. These were shares where I was already up a lot, say more than 70pc. A sell off is a good time to go through a portfolio and have a clean out of anything where there are question marks, it is too highly rated or you are simply worried. What was very interesting about the fall in small caps were the devious market makers marking down shares by 10pc before the market even opened! In effect, a false fall. Then take the panicked sellers. Drop a bit more and then start to shift the price up. They are clever.    A lot of great ideas came up at the follow up seminar  thanks to some amazing attendees I hardly bother to look for new ones for ages afterwards! And also yesterday. Of course it doesn't mean right now is the time to buy, better to have a list of decent ones and wait for the right time. So thanks to some amazing contributions I have a brilliant shortlist of shares I am looking to buy when the right time comes. Stockopedia as ever is SO useful.  It really is a must have! Brilliant stats on all shares, amazing stock screens and even discussion boards that are actually sensible and not barmy blokes having a go at each other as if they were pissed in a pub. Or weird obsessives. And some fantastic talented writers/commentators too like Paul Scott. gets you a big discount and 14 days free trial. Oh and a reminder it's your last chance to win £200 on he naked trader radio show. Keeping the competition open till Monday! Link is here: Comp winners published here on next update. The craziness of the last few days makes it very difficult to decide what to do, whether experienced or not. You could literally pop out for a cuppa, come back and find your fave share way down for no real reason. With a weak market and wanting to go more heavily into cash I ended up banked some winners and kicked out some losers which as I mentioned earlier pushed my cash balance up to over £500,000. But I also bought one or two on weakness - but only lightly dipping in for the mo. Trifast (LON:TRI) is a decent company that has pulled back away so bought some speculatively yesterday at the seminar. Its slogan is "holding the world together". Indeed, it is what it does. It makes things like the cogs that for example hold your washing machine together! Profits look good and are on the up and it says it is well prepared for whatever Brexit will throw at us. Looks a very well run company, it peaked around 280 so an entry price in the low 200s looks enticing. Even so I won't hang about if the market tanks further. I also had a dip into some Syncona. (LON:SYNC)   Janet came up with this one at the follow up. A share with low debt and good prospects - a healthcare investment co backed by Cancer Researh UK and the Wellcome Trust. 0.3pc of NAV goes to a range of charities which is nice. It has some quality investment with some decent recent returns. It focuses on investing and building global leaders in life sciences. It looks cheapish and could be a nice isa grower. Barclays don't seem to deal in it but other accounts I have do. I also bought some more Strix (Ketl). Unusual for me to buy more of something that has gone down but it looks very good value so will take the chance. Talked about this one in the last update with its new coffee machine collaboration. Looks to have a bright future. Of course if it becomes a falling knife it will be sliced. Big caveat with all buys at the mo, will be out fast if they start to tank in another down dip, as another down dip could get nasty. FFX was sold for a profit of £45  but I bought them back lower as they still look cheap. Some decent shorts were examined at that seminar too and my favourite short had to be Just Eat (LON:JE.) (Shorting means betting on shares to go down for beginners) This one faces a lot of competition in its market and on its own forecasts, the shares trade on a high multiple and now has debt after it bought rival Hungry House. Shares are falling and it seems an interesting short idea for probably the shorter-term. A guaranteed stop loss seems sensible just in case the weak price attracts a bid.     I took a loss of £450 in LON:AMO. The moment you see a warning like that it has to be shoot now, ask questions afterwards. Perhaps one to come back to soon though. LON:NWF has gone for a loss of £57. No actually worries, it just feels like it will never ever move again. Cbox LON:CBOX ended up racing higher and I couldn't resist slicing off the profit which was a very nice profit of £4,912. Then a very nice ahead of statement. I am looking for a decent re-entry point hoping a few profit takers gives me that point! Cerillion LON:CER went for a profit of £1,808 - it has had a very nice run, well over target time to bank.  Scapa LON:SCPA has gone for a profit of £573 Vec went for breakevenish. Just no buyers from 80.  Sold half of Science which is up for sale for a profit of £550. Fcrm LON:FCRM went for a profit of £525. Clarke LON:CTO was axed for a profit of £1,105. I think that's the lot. If I remember any more will add to the list. Great ahead of statements from Ab Dynamics  LON:ABDP and Sopheon LON:SPE. They both went up 10pc, would have been more in an up market. And so far they held onto a good portion of the gains. Shorts in IG LON:IGG and Plus LON:PLUS have really brought in the money with massive profits on each. Profits are really big on Plus and I think it might be sensible to bank some or all of those gains before Oct 23 trading statement. ETO LON:ETO has really bucked the trend and has moved nicely higher. And other decent shares are doing ok. I see shares in Patisserie Valerie have been suspended after possible fraudulent accounting. Lucky I don't own these but it is a warning that anything could happen to any share you hold however diligent you are. AIM shares especially have less regulation and there have been some cases where it appears figures have been made up. It isn't just AIM it has happened in FTSE 100 too a la tesco. The lesson I think is: just be careful about holding a massive amount of any one share in proportion to the pot of money you have available. Especially if it is on the smaller end. You ought not to be in the position where one going under will really affect you financially. But also it is shocking : how can you trust figures from any company if they might be manipulated or wrong? How it it fair that those holding Patisserie shares should take a big hit when they bought the shares under false pretences? Maybe we need new rules so shareholders should be compensated and cash returned to them if there is malpractice. It just doesn't seem right, or fair. If I owned them I would be furious. Looks like the shares will be down 90 pc if they come back on the market. How unfair is that to those who bought in good faith on the figures? Isn't there a case for small shareholders at least to get some compensation? Perhaps Luke Johnson should stick £5m of his massive fortune into a fund to pay out small shareholders. If it was me, I really think I would do something. At the very least, free cake for a year. The problem is with AIM shares is, can you trust the figures you are given? So, tricky October times. I suspect beginners should be wary and perhaps stand aside till things settle down. Why take the risk? It's possible it could remain tricky till December but that would make a year-end rally as decent as it has been the last few years. In the end there is no correct answer, there never is in the stock market. You just have to be sensible if possible. Sentiment is a strange thing. It can reverse just like that - if it does, I shall be buying more. I will just try to slowly follow the numbers. Reported by Proactive Investors 4 hours ago.
