Despite an opening in negative territory this morning in Europe, I think the technical rebound is likely to continue today. I have a target at 5400 for the cac and 26500 for the Dow Jones before a probable trend reversal. If the Cac 40 goes back to 5400, maybe you can try to buy the short tracker BX4. And if you are a really aggressive trader (you want to bet on the fall of the S&P 500 and a rise in the $/€ pair, you can try the DSP5 (you have to include the currency risk in your strategy).
Note that I sold Eramet above 41€. In the current context, I will only come back if there is another decline in the stock price. As for Socgen, I'm reducing the position at 23€.
Note that I'm staying bullish on gold.

Visibly, there is no "technical rebound", I was wrong.


The cac 40 is sinking.

This morning I'm going to give you a quick insight into the financial markets.

The cac 40 was up 1% a hour ago, it's now red. The markets are very nervous. In the current context, I think the markets are bearish. Let's stay bullish on gold...

The Dow Jones is currently dropping 470 points. The next session will be interesting for the Asian and European markets.

They already closed in negative territory and the futures are indicating further losses for tomorrow.
Gold is up 1.04% at 1513$. In this context we stay bullish on gold stocks too.

This morning, I'm going to give you a brief overview of the stock markets.


U.S. stocks fell Monday after escalating protests in Hong Kong weighed on already-dampened investor sentiment.
Losses accelerated into the final hour of trading as U.S. Treasury yields tumbled. Monday marked the ninth consecutive trading session of an at least 1% intraday move in the S&P 500.


This morning, the futures are still ugly, as the picture shows. In this context, gold is up 1.23% at 1523$.
And yet, I recommend the stock Societe generale at 21.8€ with a target at 23.5€. With a PE of 6, it's one of the cheapest bank stock in the European markets.

The stock markets are crumbling.
-0.62% for the cac40 right now.
Practically everything is red in the estx 50.

In the meantime, gold and silver are going up.



Well, some of us are on vacation, and maybe it's high time we drank a little Pastis-tomato.

Those who bought some Societe generale at 21.8€ this morning got a good deal. It's actually at 22.38€. I sold a few minutes ago at 22.49€ the stocks I bought yesterday. The stock hit 21.43€ this morning, this is a 5% rebound !
There is currently a technical rebound on the European markets. But for me the trend is still bearish. There is a correction on gold stocks. It might be a good opportunity to buy some Agnico Eagles mines or Newmont Goldcorp stocks.

As intended, the stock markets are still in a bearish trend...

Well, the investors of the forum like shadow.97, humbert and usmangujjar must be thinking I was right to warn them this morning. The cac 40 is literally collapsing, dropping 100 points. The cac 40 is currently falling nearly 2%.


There are signs of a looming recession, as Germany's economy shrank during the April-to-June period of this year.
A decline in exports dampened growth, according to official data, which comes amid concerns of a global slowdown.
Early signs for the third quarter "look ominous", said Andrew Kenningham, chief Europe economist at Capital Economics. "Manufacturing business surveys for July were all gloomy.
"And while the services sector should continue to hold up better, there are some signs that the slump is spreading to the labour market."

In this context, I'm still bearish on the markets and particularly on car stocks like Renault and Bmw, even if there is now a long lasting correction in this sector.
We'll stay bullish on gold. Currently gold is up 0.89% at 1515$ per once.

Maybe a target at 5150 for the cac 40, 25000 for the Dow Jones, and 1580$ for gold.
