  5. Today’s stock and macro update: China data and market unclear but may still prevent Fed rate hike Nick Batsford, CEO of Tip TV, opened the Tip TV Finance Show alongside Richard Hunter, Head of Equities at Hargreaves Lansdown, to discuss the impending potential Fed rate hike and FOMC meeting this Thursday, China’s clouded economic data, as well as brief outlooks on the FTSE 100, NASDAQ, Merlin, Kingfisher and more. Entirely 50/50 on Fed decision this Thursday Hunter outlined that the verdict of Thursday’s FOMC meeting is split down the middle and a rate hike could be on the cards. He noted that any hike will be a 25 basis point interest rate rise. However, Hunter also highlighted that China has given the Federal Reserve a significant excuse to prevent the Fed hike, even though US data has been improving recently. China clouded economic data remains Hunter briefly outlined China, commenting that its stock market is still in trouble following the drastic fall and the government artificially holding up prices, and that in terms of its economic data we are unsure of its accuracy. October tumble in the markets possible Hunter moved onto the markets, and commented on the decline until December as many begin positioning their portfolios for 2016. Historically October has been the month for a crash, however, he noted that you can’t categorise months, sometimes it will and sometimes it won’t, and he urges to look to the longer term and ride out the volatility. Oversupply to cause $20 oil Batsford highlighted the call by Goldman Sachs who have predicted oil down to $20 a barrel. In response, Hunter noted that he is not sure on oil, and that there must be some other factors in play other than oversupply for Goldman Sachs to be calling oil down to $20. He added oil experts believe we are in a range now, and that $20 is a long way off at the moment. Stock and Index updates Batsford outlined the NASDAQ as being the strongest index on Thursday and is currently leading the market. He also added that this should continue over the next week. In terms of IAG, Hunter commented that it is a well-regarded stock and the market consensus is coming in at a strong buy. Hunter continued onto KGF, and believed that they are trying to get synergies within the business. According to Hunter, exposure to France had been holding back and the Jury remains out at the moment. When concerning MERL, Hunter noted that is will be interesting to see what financial impact Merlin is likely to take from the Alton Towers incident. But it maintains a buy due to its great diversification of parks and rides and its presence in the USA as well.

  8. EMini Crude Oil Trading Plan

    Brent crude oil experiences worst quarter since 2010 Guarav Sharma – Oil analyst at Sharecast – joins Tip TV CEO, Nick Batsford, to talk about how Chinese sentiment has weighed on the oil market, and whether it’s likely to bounce back from this. Obsessions with China need to be tempered The nosedive in oil price that we’ve witnessed over the last month is largely attributed to concerns surrounding China, but Guarav Sharma believes that this sentiment is misplaced. China are still importing 7million barrels daily, and remain net exporters of refined petroleum through the region. $60 per barrel by Christmas? Current prices for Brent are holding just below the $50 level. Sharma believes these could see a $60 high before the new year, but are still prone to volatility driven by fundamentals. He also believes prices could claw their way back to $75 per barrel much sooner than we expect. See more at: Brent crude oil experiences worst quarter since 2010 | TipTV.co.uk
  9. Silver, Good Buy?

    Precious metals: Gold for the price of Silver Charlie Gibson – Head of mining at Edison Research – joins Zak Mir at Tip TV to talk about what’s been happening with Gold and other precious metals prices during the recent stock market upheaval. Good value for mining stocks Gibson believes that metal prices are in a place where they are unlikely to fall any further, but could potentially rise through the roof. Zak Mir remains a bit more cautious however, suggesting that Gold and Silver could still have further to fall. See more at: Precious metals: Gold for the price of Silver | TipTV.co.uk
  10. Daily Analysis

    Fed rates: 2015 still a reasonable call; Markets calling for further Yuan devaluation? With the Chinese officials resorting to selling Treasury bonds in a bid to continue supporting their crumbling market, Marcus Ashworth believes this is taking a toll on their currency. Remaining pegged to the dollar is proving to be costly, so cutting rates and devaluing the Yuan is almost certainly the right move for China to make, but it may also be that the market has already accounted for a future move. September unlikely, but 2015 still a reasonable call in interest rates Moving away from the overuse of emerging monetary policies of recent years, the Federal Reserve are set on raising the US interest rate in the near future. Speculation still persists as, even though a September hike was the original call, it’s seemingly becoming less and less likely. Zak Mir believes that the Fed should make their move and get it over and done with, but Ashworth feels that the concern over the markets (particularly emerging economies) should not be a factor in the Fed’s decision.

  11. Market Update by ForexBrokerInc

    Market visibility clouded by China and the Fed Market visibility clouded by China and the Fed Zak Mir, technical analyst for ShareProphets.com, opened the Tip TV Finance show today alongside Mike Ingram, strategist at BGC Partners, to discuss the ongoing situations concerning the Fed rate hike and the China meltdown. Transparency required in the global market Ingram began by noting the rounding up of journalists in China, and he added the fog surrounding China must clear in order for the world to understand the problems facing it and to react accordingly. In terms of the Fed, Ingram commented that the time of the rate hike remains in the balance, despite it being said over the weekend that the Fed will look through China to raise rates, as we await the non-farm payroll numbers on Friday. Full house buy alert for stocks Ingram questioned their decision as he believes it isn’t as easy to call the bottom, and that we are not going to see any resolution to the current crash. He outlined how Morgan Stanley were overweight on European equities like everyone else, and went on to highlight that Europe is improving economically - but sustainability is the key. Whilst discussing recovery, Ingram noted that the US has experienced one of the worst recoveries in history, only growing at rates of less than 3%.

    Sentiment shows 61% bullish on the FTSE 100, more at S&P 500 sees further downside, Fed hike likely this year, China rate cut undermines the currency further | TipTV.co.uk
  13. First Black Monday, now Woeful Wednesday? Neil Mackinnon – Chief macro strategist at VTB Capital – joined Mike Ingram and Zak Mir in the Tip TV studio to discuss what powers the major central banks have to turn the markets around again. Uncertainty over possible second down leg The warning signs have been evident for a while, says Mackinnon, as ongoing market pressure in China, speculation over a Fed rate hike, and oil prices looking for a bottom have culminated in Monday’s flash crash. However the overall bearish outlook for the markets still persists, and with major banks having exhausted almost all monetary options, there is little that can be done to break this cycle.

  14. EMini Crude Oil Trading Plan

    Oil Outlook: Brent $40 floor, $35 written all over WTI Crude Chris ‘oil’ Williams, City Investor and City Financial Writer, joined Zak Mir and Mike Ingram, to discuss his views on the current oil market and his future predictions. The supply side: Saudi Arabia trying to blow everyone out the water Williams noted the situation surrounding Saudi Arabia, with the conclusion that its economy can’t maintain this looking forward, and that with it facing a budget deficit of 20% of its GDP, it cannot continue on the course of lower prices for much longer. In contrast, he added how OPEC countries are decreasing their production as a result of maintenance or political issues, with Venezuela facing the second type of problem. When concerning Iran, it will be opening up at the end of the year, but Williams believes that the market has already priced this in. US shale forecast shows a reduction from 9.6 to 9 million barrels a day, with the majority of shale being hedged about $70-80 a barrel. However, he also commented that with hedges coming off in September-October time, production will have to stop or be significantly reduced. Brent breaks $45 level, WTI to $35, and BP offering 7.2% yields Williams began by outlining the situation with Brent Crude, with his opinion judging this down to $40, which was a 2009 low, after breaking the $45 level. In terms of WTI Crude, he highlighted how the $35 level is written all over it. Watch the video for the technical outlook of oil stocks.

  15. Zak Mir and Bill Hubard, were joined by Ben Gutteridge, Head of Fund Research at Brewin Dolphin, to discuss the outlook for the current global economy. People looking for higher quality growth stocks Gutteridge noted that there is a volume issue over the summer, but people aren’t in a value mind-set, the majority still want to attach themselves to higher quality growth stocks. Mir added that mid-cap stocks doing well such as Dominos or Just Eat. Emerging markets causing global problems Gutteridge outlined there is a need for caution within the UK economy which is heavily exposed to emerging economies, despite the UK doing well data wise. In terms of the equity market, he outlined that emerging markets and the commodity downward wave mean equities remain exposed, but not all fundamentals are negative. Gutteridge continued onto the US, where he believes the Fed will still move this year for a rate hike despite the situation in emerging markets, supported by the FOMC minutes. He added that when interest rates do go up, the first few hikes won’t see a change in bank accounts, just loan interest. ECB receive first payment from Greece, whilst EUR/USD not aiding exports in Europe Gutteridge highlighted the Greek situation, where the ECB have received the first payment today, and now he believes he can focus on other European fundamentals. However, he recognised that Greece isn’t on a path of debt sustainability. He moved on to the EURUSD, which at its current levels isn’t aiding exports, and despite being good for Germany, Gutteridge noted the lower level of competitiveness for peripheral European nations, with also the possibility of the Euro going lower. ECB monetary policy not getting tighter any time soon Gutteridge commented that it will not get tighter quickly, but we are seeing signs of improvement, such as Spain’s retail sales increasing and higher employment across the whole of Europe. Mir questioned this, who expects the ECB to come up with QE mark 2. To finish, he outlined that banks will have to move away from moderate lending to a more aggressive stance. - See more at: Monetary policy not tightening in the near future, QE mark 2 in Europe possible? | TipTV.co.uk
