Review – H1 2021

Economies have reopened after lengthy lock downs last year. Starting with an initial growth rebounding by double-digits as pent-up demand flows through order books in manufacturing and more recently, the services industry. This year’s numbers have been accompanied by surging inflationary pressures which reached peaks last March (2021). Although at the time, financial markets were positioning for continued price rises, interest rate rises and a weakening US$ dollar. However, the reality was quite the opposite.

In this year’s annual report, we commented – ‘…we know that such statistics can be misleading when it comes to timing imbalances that eventually lead to directional change, but sentiment data like this can be used in conjunction with Elliott Wave analysis which we can confirm shows that dollar oversold condition is about to change with significant corrective rallies already underway. The US$ dollar index is forecast up to 95.85+/- over the next 5-6 months, maybe even higher’.

US$ Dollar Index Performance

The US$ Dollar Index has certainly put in a base-line low last January at 89.21 and it’s been engaged in a counter-trend rally since, trading so far to 93.43. This rally is far from over, where upside targets of 95.85+/- are little changed, currently at 96.15+/-.

Interest Rates Performance

And for Interest Rates, a pause in those inflationary pressures was forecast basis analysis in the US10yr treasury yield and the Inflation TIPS, commenting – ‘…Whilst the long-term trends show a new 30+ year uptrend cycle for global interest rates, including treasury yields began from before last year’s COVID-19 pandemic lows, it is due to take a breather over the next 5-6 months…It’s necessary for a counter-trend 2nd wave downswing to now unfold. This suggests a temporary unwinding of the ‘Reflation-Trade’.

Exactly right! – the US10yr yield hit a peak last March at 1.774% per cent and has since traded down to .131%. So what can we expect next?

EW-Forecasts H2 2021

A lot of the normal correlations between the different asset classes have broken down this year. At the time of major turning points last year, in March’s ’20 pandemic highs/lows, the US$ Dollar hit a peak at 102.99 whilst stock markets like the benchmark S&P 500 traded to a low of 2191.86. The US$ dollar then declined into a five wave impulse pattern, ending last January ’21 at 89.21 and since trading higher into a correction. Yet, U.S. stock indices have yet to complete their corresponding advances although they’re expected at the end of August. But that means the normal correlation between these two asset classes have diverged for almost 8 months – see Fig #1.

Interest Rates

Interest rates bottomed into the March ’20 pandemic lows too with the US10yr yield hitting historical lows of 0.378% whilst the S&P 500 hit lows at 2191.86. But again, this relationship began to break down last March when the US10yr yield ended a its uptrend at 1.774 then declined earlier this month to 1.131 even though the S&P 500 has kept trending higher.

There’s also been a disruption in the way rising inflationary pressures have unfolded this year, in 2021. Investors surveyed last April by Bank of America showed 93% per cent were expecting the continuation of inflationary pressures – since then, rising food and agriculture prices (see PART II Commodities Report here) have exacerbated inflationary perceptions with lagging gains but with treasury yields declining over the past four months. However, that sentiment figure has now dropped to only 22% per cent.

The real difficulty in price forecasting is this divergence in ‘normal’ correlations. When they break down, it’s sometimes tricky to know how deep corrections can unfold if comparisons are removed from the equation – see Fig #1 – #2. This means that Elliott Wave patterns must be relied upon even if it sometimes doesn’t make sense.

What would happen next if interest rates bottom now completing those corrections?

Is that bullish or bearish for stock markets? And the next direction for stock markets remains critical in forecasting the US$ dollar’s next moves. Hypothetically, should stock markets correct by -30% per cent, as we see a heightened risk, that certainly translates into a higher US$ dollar but what about interest rates? Do they attract safe-haven buying, consistent with historical precedent? Or do interest rates surge higher because of another round of rising inflationary pressures, sending stock markets lower. You see the point – the recent breakdown in correlations makes it difficult to be sure.

Of all the movements in stock markets, commodities, currencies and interest rates, we can say with confidence that the US$ dollar is rated as the highest outcome basis the current Elliott Wave analysis depicting January’s correction continuing higher until October/November.

We’re updating some amazing Elliott Wave forecasts for Currencies and U.S. interest rates, US30yr, US10yr, US05yr and even US02yr together with a schematic look at several spread relationships with European rates not forgetting upside targets for the US10yr Inflation Tips and our attempt to solve this financial riddle – it’s a must-see!
