Chris Weston quotes

Mar 06 2017 - Travel ban

In an overnight trading session really devoid of any major market moving news … there has been some focus on Trump's second attempt at pushing through the controversial travel ban.feedback

Mar 02 2017

It promises to be an interesting open for the various equity markets.feedback

Feb 15 2017

What's most important here is that the market is just so comfortable with a somewhat hawkish Fed and we can even go as far as saying hawkish commentary is now being taken as an equity positive.feedback

Feb 14 2017 - Federal Reserve

Fundamentally, the U.S. banks are simply being used as a vehicle to express reflation and 'Trumponomics'. Although last night really belonged to Janet Yellen whose prepared comments that waiting too long to tighten would be 'unwise' and a further review its policy stance will take place at its upcoming meetings.feedback

Feb 13 2017

The focus remains on U.S. equity markets, with the S&P 500 grinding higher yet again amid solid gains in financials, tech and industrial names.feedback

Feb 09 2017

We face a nice pop in Asian equities on open thanks largely to Mr. Trump. The market loves the idea of tax reform. It has corporate tax cuts in its sights and if Trump can push that along with a more simplified personal tax regime the U.S. and global equities will find buyers.feedback

Jan 30 2017

We didn't expect to see the market down 1 percent. This suggests that the markets are starting to get a little bit more nervous about Trump's protectionist policies and their potential impact on global trade; not to mention the controversy around the policies and the fact the world seems to be uniting in some sort of condemnation.feedback

Jan 29 2017

Whether the markets start to price in a stronger Trump risk premium is yet to be seen, but the S&P 500 rallying 1 percent last week in the face of various protectionist measures suggest this premium is not yet in the market.feedback

Jan 26 2017 - Japan

The market likes what they have heard from Trump and his administration… where the rhetoric and actions highlighted a sheer urgency, purpose and drive to push the US economy forward and this has traders putting risk back on the table.feedback

Jan 24 2017

The story in Australia is clearly around the moves in commodities and the materials sector.feedback

Jan 04 2017

The Fed, like everyone else in the market, have full focus on the execution of Trump's fiscal program and see upside risks to their forecasts if it comes off. That is a sizeable 'if' because ... much needs to go right.feedback

Dec 12 2016

The key will then be whether they increase their 2017 and more likely 2018 GDP forecasts from 2% respectively.feedback

Dec 12 2016 - OPEC

Traders want to be hedged against this situation, so people are buying financials globally. Everyone wants to benefit from a reflation trade, and financials are generally your natural hedge against that.feedback

Dec 09 2016

We've had a strong run this week. We're up about 2 percent and are headed towards 5,600, the top end of this year's trading range. However, we're missing a bit of a catalyst today.feedback

Dec 06 2016

You've got great yield in the banks, you've got very stable earnings. We still have very low volatitity in financial stocks, which is great for income trade.feedback

Nov 30 2016

The Q3 Australian business investment plans are expected to fall 3 percent and this could have implications for next week's Q3 GDP print, but one should also look out for the fourth estimate of business investment plans for 2016/17.feedback

Nov 27 2016

We have a number of really bullish set-ups in global indices at present, obviously, we've seen this front and center in all four main US indices, the Nikkei 225 and also the Chinese CSI 300, which is near the year's highs. However, we can now add the ASX 200, which, after pushing through 5,500 is eyeing the year's highs of 5,611 itself.feedback

Nov 24 2016

If you want to hedge or profit from a 'make America normal again' trade the best way is through the Japanese equity market, and specifically the banks.feedback

Nov 23 2016

This market looks like it wants to go up to 5500....I think being long and staying long seems to be the trend for now.feedback

Nov 23 2016

If the Fed were to assess financial conditions in the wake of a potential rate hike they would be wholly enthused.feedback

Nov 22 2016

U.S. equity and many other developed markets are going higher, at least in the short-term.feedback

Nov 07 2016

In terms of event risk, I suspect today's NAB business confidence print will do little to alter market sentiment [and the] same could be said for China's October trade data.feedback

Nov 04 2016

We are not quite at the point where we need to think about canned food and underground wood bunkers, but we are being schooled in understanding the dynamics politics plays on financial markets. Despite all the thoughts about central bank policy changes, improving inflation trends and ever-changing economics, politics dominates markets above all else.feedback

Nov 02 2016

People are looking to mitigate the risks around their portfolios as the clarity of the investment landscape is deteriorating as Donald Trump picks up (vote) share.feedback

Oct 30 2016

The market gave us a reasonable idea about how it plans to react to a Trump victory, with politics dominating Friday's U.S. trading session. The interesting dynamic here is that despite a strong headline U.S. Q3 GDP report of 2.9 percent, the interest rate market couldn't really care less and the increased chance of Trump in the White House has actually seen the chance of a December rate hike fall to 70 percent.feedback

Oct 26 2016

Apple's numbers after-market look quite uninspiring and we are seeing shares down 2.5 percent in after-hours trade.feedback

Oct 21 2016

The US dollar strength is the big story for me overnight, predominantly driven by Euro weakness more than anything else.feedback

Oct 19 2016 - Goldman Sachs

U.S. markets have provided Asia with a healthy platform from which to progress. We've also seen a slew of earnings reports (including Goldman Sachs) and once again whether one is looking at the underlying earnings or the sales lines, companies are beating the analysts' estimates.feedback

Sep 28 2016

No one really expected to hear a categorical statement that we are going to see the Saudis curbing oil production.feedback

Sep 23 2016

If you are an international fund manager, you can look much more positively at the Australian market because the income that you are buying is actually appreciating in Australian dollar terms. So we got that kind of perfect storm in the Australian market to outperform.feedback

Sep 22 2016

Initial USD weakness was met with some better buying as the session grew and this seems to have taken some of the heat out of further risk sentiment.feedback

Sep 19 2016

As one can imagine, no one is prepared to take on too much risk.feedback

Sep 19 2016 - Wall Street

One suspects that there will be an air of relief and many will be pleased that the technical glitch happened on a day where corporate news flow was limited and the leads from Wall Street were as flat as you will ever see.feedback

Sep 16 2016

The bulls have wrestled some sort of control back in U.S. equity indices, but ... there is still a good amount of technical work to be done for the bulls to fully be in control.feedback

Sep 16 2016 - Federal Reserve

Anyone still left calling for a September hike next week from the Federal Reserve must be feeling a bit hot under the collar after further signs of economic vulnerabilities. It's no surprise to see reasonable buying in the short- to medium-duration U.S. Treasuries, while the longer end of the curve hardly moved.feedback

Sep 11 2016

The VIX (U.S. volatility index) had the biggest move since the U.K. referendum, gaining 39.9 percent.feedback

Aug 11 2016

Oil has been at the heart of the move, helping high yield credit spreads to narrow relative to U.S. treasuries and put real backbone behind the feel good factor.feedback

Aug 11 2016

Financials are driving the losses today. The Australian economy is slowing and there are concerns about the future of Australia's financials.feedback

Aug 10 2016 - Commonwealth

The composition of the result was a little bit disappointing.feedback

Aug 07 2016

Hotter than forecast average workweek hours, hourly earnings and participation rate suggests this report was of genuinely quality.feedback

Aug 07 2016 - Federal Reserve

All-in-all, it should be a quieter week for event risk with the markets having had time to digest central bank initiatives and commentary from the Bank of England, Reserve Bank of Australia, Bank of Japan and Federal Reserve.feedback

Aug 03 2016

Of course, if the crunch came and they needed power quickly we would respond.feedback

Jul 22 2016 - Uber

The fact we've only seen a modest recovery in the [currency] pair suggests trader see very little appetite for this uber-unconventional policy change and we should see the Nikkei open on the back foot today.feedback

Jul 06 2016 - Federal Reserve

If we went off this report alone, then the Federal Reserve would be putting rates up today, but that is clearly not the case with the May trade balance and dovish (yet largely redundant) set of FOMC minutes keeping the growth bulls in check.feedback

Jul 06 2016

Calmer heads seem to have prevailed in the U.S. and we are once again seeing a situation where the U.S. economy is seemingly looking OK, while the U.K. and Europe are showing increasing signs of fragility.feedback

Jun 20 2016

The polls were not supposed to influence as much as they have. Overnight, we have seen a rampant position adjustment and an unwind of 'Brexit' hedges.feedback

Apr 14 2016 - RMB

It just doesn't feel right, but I was always taught that an asset at all-time highs, or even 52-week highs, is outright bullish and should be traded as such - but no one believes we are here. many in the market are clinging to the first-quarter macro concerns (China yuan devaluation, low oil, low growth/recession, negative interest rate policy concerns and deflation fears) that they have missed the move higher.feedback

Mar 14 2016

The feeling on the floors is that the move higher in risk assets still has legs, but there is a healthy degree of skepticism and there are a number of longs waiting to reverse to short or increase cash allocations should prices show even the slightest hint of rolling over.feedback

Mar 04 2016

We have not yet reached the point where the market internals are highly suggestive of contrarian short positions. But the market is in need of some injection of new news to provide an injection of inspiration and cause a new leg higher. It seems unlikely this inspiration comes from today's U.S. payrolls.feedback

Feb 18 2016

Asian stocks have flown out of the gate and there almost feels like we could be seeing the start of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) trading. To many, losing money is only moderately worse than missing an opportunity and the flows today have been reminiscent of this phenomenon.feedback

Feb 16 2016

The noise around potential production cuts is hugely elevated; if we don't see a cohesive response in a month or so, the speculators will no doubt start to ramp up short positions again.feedback

Feb 09 2016

These markets need a strong shake up and sharp downside move, followed by a wave of buying to settle things down. But until that comes there will be no clarity, absolutely no confidence and a bucket load of concern. There's concern the volatility will feed through into real economics and central banks will be pretty much powerless to stop it.feedback

Feb 09 2016

For those who have traded the overnight move, it almost feels like something big is brewing, similar to 24 August and the quasi-flash crash capitulation move we saw.feedback

Jan 06 2016

Despite talk last year that the so-called National Team were not going to directly intervene in stocks, this idea seems to have reversed.feedback
