Vermilion Int'l Compass: Global Equity Strategy

Another test of support Heightened trade tensions have caused global equities to move from resistance to support in a matter of days. Additional consolidation - i.e., no breakdowns - on the broad global indexes (MSCI ACWI, ACWI ex-US, EAFE, and EM) remains the most likely scenario. At the same time, new cracks are beginning to show and as a result we believe global equities are vulnerable to a breakdown. • New cracks emerging. Breakdowns in crude oil and new lows for the STOXX 600 Bank supersector are two recent developments which have dampened our overall outlook... see charts below. • Tes...

Vermilion Int'l Compass: Global Equity Strategy

Testing 200-day MA support Generally speaking most major indexes are currently trading at the lower end of their May trading ranges. Barring improving headlines regarding tariffs & trade or comments from the Fed suggesting a potential rate cut on the horizon - both of which would result in a weaker U.S. dollar - we believe global markets are vulnerable to further weakness. With global markets in purgatory, we are watching for support at the all-important 200-day moving averages on the S&P 500, MSCI ACWI, ACWI ex-U.S., and EAFE indexes. Breakdowns below these support levels would be problemati...
