Vermilion Int'l Compass: Global Equity Strategy

Stay Defensive With Technology, Health Care, Staples Upside momentum continues to wane for global equities, a trend we mentioned in last week's Int'l Compass. In that report we highlighted early signs of lower highs forming in the major global indexes. Price action this week has indeed confirmed lower highs for now in the MSCI ACWI, ACWI ex-US, EAFE, and EM indexes. These lower highs increase the probability for breakdowns and a deeper pullback, but we do not want to get ahead of ourselves. Until we see breakdowns we still view global equities as being in a period of consolidation. · ...

Vermilion Int'l Compass: Global Equity Strategy

Global Rally Losing Upside Momentum The global rally appears to be losing steam as the bearish rising wedge patterns we highlighted last week in the MSCI ACWI, ACWI ex-US, EM, and EAFE indexes ended up breaking down. Additionally, the aforementioned indexes and major indexes in Europe, Japan, and Hong Kong have been unable to break above longer-term resistance. While we believe global equities remain vulnerable to a pullback, some near-term consolidation is another possibility. For now we believe some consolidation makes sense as we remain in a sort of wait-and-see period as it relates to wha...
