Market survives “Risk Event Storm”

Market survives “Risk Event Storm”
Last week was a busy week with the market sailing through a gauntlet of central bank meetings, escalating trade tensions and a historic meeting between the US and North Korea.

Surprisingly the JSE held up relatively well buoyed by a weaker Rand. We've also seen volatility (measured by the VIX) drop back towards 12, a level that signals the market might not be pricing in the risk of a “Trump Trade Tantrum” as China retaliates with tariffs.

Fitch left SA's credit rating at Junk status citing “low trend growth, sizeable government debt and contingent liabilities and the highest inequality in the world, which raises policy risks”.

The latest iteration of the Mining Charter is an improvement from 2017's in a number of ways but notably, the once empowered always empowered clause. This is positive as it means most mining houses will have 5 years to “top-up” to 30%.

Thursday is futures close-out and the direction will be dominated by options traders hedging their positions. There are more Puts than Calls and that will likely see them buying the market if offshore markets bounce from here.

The week ahead:
  • Local Economic News: CPI (20-06), Current Account Balance (21/06)
  • Results Due: TSX (20/06); RACP (21/06); NPN (22/06)

One to Buy
Buy the ALSI 40 Future at 50,250 into Closeout

As mentioned above, the market’s direction will be dominated by Options traders hedging into closeout. We also have Napser’s results due tomorrow and Tencent at a critical support level.
If Napsers and Tencent have a bounce tomorrow, we’re more likely to trade up towards the recent high above 52,500 into the futures closeout than back towards the channel low below 49,000.
Keep an eye on the Top40 Future and if it retreats to 50,250, look to enter around this level. For a move to 52,250. Let the future expire in the auction. Maintain a stop loss at 49500.

I‘ve been waiting four years to share this with you...
If you bet on the soccer, you’ll have heard of these two.
One is a record-breaking goal scorer, and the other the most expensive player in soccer.
To the average punter, these two favourites don’t exactly scream ‘profit machines.’
But here’s the thing...
There’s a small group of unconventional punters out there who are very, VERY excited about them...
Because they’re using a specially designed ‘betting code’.
This code is so powerful; it could see average South African punters land as much as 93% profit by the end of the soccer tournament.
