A resolutely bullish scenario for GLOBAL EQUITIES with very few SELL or HOLD signals. The global equity rally is fueled by the massive liquidity created by negative real interest rates and by a resumption of growth in China.

However, we may be reaching an inflection point in the US. Watch a challenging of the highs.

.

The US DOLLAR is about to break to the upside in a big way particularly against the CHF, the Japanese Yen and the EUR.

.

In COMMODITIES , Oil is making new highs, Platinum has started its secular rally, Palladium is a short and soft commodities are favored.

.

The strong revival of CRYPTOCURRENCIES : is it for real or is it a dead cat bounce ?

The Chart of the Week

US Investment Grade Corporate Bonds have risen 6.8 % since the beginning of the year.
They are not yet a screaming SELL, but investors should be watching them carefully for any signal to bail out.

EQUITIES

Most equity markets are delivering strong BUY signals after the pause of the end of March. 

Only US and Canadian Equities are closing in on their previous resistances and deserve to be reduced. Europe, China and most of Asia are starting a new up leg, supported by strong liquidity and better than expected Chinese economic numbers.

Emerging markets and Asia Pacific are clearly positive.
