The report discusses the current state of the US equities market, highlighting the short-term backdrop and the reasons to remain long. It also covers the recent job numbers, inflation data, a potential long USD play, and a nuclear stock that seems to have bottomed out.

Key Takeaways

US Equities Market Outlook

  • Strong Trend in US Equities: Despite the market trading near all-time highs, many traders are attempting to short the move. The report suggests it’s better to stay long until the trend changes, given the high Trend Fragility readings and recent shift in rate cut expectations.
  • Market Internals Divergence: There’s a growing divergence from market internals, which is typically seen before short-to-intermediate term tops. However, these divergences can persist for weeks before a trend ends.

Job Numbers and Inflation Data

  • Positive Job Numbers: The report indicates that the recent hot jobs data, showing a change in the six most cyclical sectors, is not indicative of an imminent recession.
  • Inflation Trends: The report doesn’t have a strong view on the short-term path of inflation but notes that the trends in annualized core CPI are turning up again.

USD and GBPUSD Outlook

  • Potential USD Pop: The DXY has the most bearish speculative positioning out of all the major pairs currently. With shifting expectations around US rates, a USD pop could be on the horizon.
  • GBPUSD Breakdown: The GBPUSD could trigger a short on a breakdown from its recent sideways rectangle pattern.

Investment Ideas

  • Bullish on Mexico: The report is bullish on Mexico over the next 3-5 years and highlights Consorcio Ara, a company that makes affordable housing in Mexico, as a potential investment idea.
  • NuScale Power Corp: The report mentions NuScale Power Corp, a maker of small modular nuclear reactors, as a potential investment idea. The stock has found a firm floor around the $2.75 level after trading as much as -88% off its post-SPAC listing.
