DELAYED RECAP monthly MT GLOBAL M.PMI surveys Apr2019 thread 1/n (probably 30) (as of May2nd)

• Global Biz confidence remained at 2.5Y lows
• DM notch higher
• EM barely > 50
• F5 6M low

= global slowdown continues
= global centralbanks dovish

2/n Global M.PMI heatmap

• Canada joined <50 club, 38M low
• Germany still 44+
• Austria joined <50 club, 4Y low
• Switzerland joined <50 club, 4Y low
• Czech 76M low
• Sweden 32M low
• Singapore 29M low
• China hovers at 50

3/n Global M.PMI in relevance to GDP distribution

• I'd be more stock bullish if those "bubbles" shift to the right quads
• turning into left quads is actually bond bullish
4/n Global M.PMI ranked DM vs EM

• a) GDP contribution relevance
• b) PCTL/YoY/last

• Greece at 11.5Y HIGH is nice, but not <that> relevant...
5/n Global M.PMI "breadth"

• number of countries rebounding, first sign of improving, but really, the GDP weighted indices keep making new lows.
6/n Global M.PMI "big 4 regions"

• US stable
• China 50.2
• Europe 47.9 remains in dire
• Japan rebound to 50.2

still, thats not global growth

17/n US Rates snapshot

• Bonds rallied across the board
18/n US impl FF cuts vs Copper/Gold

• implied inflation and diverging ratios, great stuff
19/n US market SPX vs some RiskOnOFF ratios


momentum was fading...
20/n US market SPX vs VIX

• is this a Deja-vu ?? lol

• rising wedge
• RSI divergence
• VIX in complacency

• this plus the recent M.PMI divergence, a correction was on the cards (let alone the elevated annualised YTD performance)

• Correction or Roll-over to be seen
21/n that's all folks ;-)

sorry for delay, but as always, big picture view is a process and forms the bias, technicals for timing.

And before some guys attack me: there is no one only way set up. There are plenty. Some smart, some complex, some easier. No holy grail.
