Global political weather is such that financial markets will not sleep during Christmas and New Year weeks. Do not sleep in the next three weeks on your short term investment. Still anything can happen. If you are on a vacation or plan to go on a vacation for the next three weeks, then close very short term open positions in any future and options and ETF. If you are holding physical gold, any physical metal or deliverable stocks, then hold onto the same. Vacations are for relaxing and not for looking at own investments.
The politics behind trade deal: “Eik teer se doo nishane” This is a hindi proverb which means that with one arrow of a trade deal with China, Trump has achieved two political goals. How? (1) Trade deal will result in China buying massive amounts of US farm produce. China will also prevent copying of products of American technology companies. Farmers are Trump’s biggest supporters. (2) Crude oil prices will not fall or continue to rise till the next US elections. Firm crude oil prices will support US Shale oil producing companies. American energy companies are the biggest political donors of Trump’s Republican Party. Higher crude oil prices will also support Saudi Arabia’s Aramco which can result in greater support for American interest in the Middle East and North Africa region. So the trade deal is a win-win for Trump and not for China.
I am not sure whether global economy is ready for rising energy prices next year. Economic fundamentals are still bearish for most Asian nations. There is just hope that the worst will be behind in 2019 for global economy. We need to remember that there is difference between hope and actuals. The pace of rise of crude oil will be the key to global economy in 2020.
Trump and his impeachment related news will be the key. Remain on the sidelines till tomorrow.
