Your Daily Financial Market Briefing - Giving You An Investing Edge Before Each Trading Day Begins

The Daily Briefing For September 18th As Investors React To Tariff News & 10 Year Yield Rises


Could the chart of the largest Chinese ETF FXI be telling us something about the state of the trade deal?

One of my favorite formations being that I am from Wisconsin is the "W" formation. This can also be known as a double bottom. Currently, FXI is making a double bottom.

We like double bottoms because if it does not take then there is an easy exit.


If the yield on the long end can begin to move beyond 3.11% to say 3.25%, then expect the financials to finally get going. XLF year to date is up a paltry 0.79% compared to the S&P 500 return of 8.05%.

There are a ton of company analyst meetings as well as conference now that earnings season is over until mid October. As such, pay attention to how stocks react to either their analyst meeting or a sector does following a conference.

As an example, Borg Warner (BWA) holds their analyst meeting today and we will track its return for one day,  one week, two weeks and one month. If higher, then investors are buying the story and if lower, then they are not. We will look at how the stock fared again on Thursday morning and then follow it out 1 week, 2 weeks and 


Elon Musk and his company Space X are going to tour the moon. They have their first customer Japanese billionaire and online fashion tycoon Yusaku Maezawa who simply stated, "I choose to go to the Moon."

This is all that is good about the human race. Focus on this story and you will see all that is good rather than back and forth out of Washington D.C. that is all that is bad about the human race.
