CFD Indices 4 March 2019

Market News

  • Trump on Friday, delayed tariffs as talks between US and China are progressing well. Trump called on China to immediately remove tariffs on US agricultural products.
  • WSJ and Bloomberg have reported that US and China are close to striking a trade deal after a year-long tariffs skirmish. WSJ further reported that around Mar 27, during a summit between Trump and Xi, a trade deal would be signed.
  • US equity market closed on a high note with gains in all 3 major indices. Japan’s Nikkei 225 rose to a fresh 3-month high on Monday morning. Hang Seng index was higher on the back of a strong China equity market showing.

Market Views

  • After a yearlong tariffs skirmish, with a trade deal likely on the horizon, the year-long decline in the global equity markets could be about to be reversed. Dec 2018 was low for many major equity markets and could be the start of a long multi-year rally in the making.
  • The rally that started in Dec 2018, in the short run may need a correction and consolidation. We view dips as buying opportunities for the longer term.
