Sorry for this week’s late newsletter but it’s cold and flu season here in Montreal and yours truly was bitten by the flu bug which knocked me out of commission for the past few days.

Here is your weekly newsletter — perspectives on trading and financial markets.

Click here for last week’s edition.

 

Get ready to party – 

Just a final reminder that this year’s Montreal Traders Christmas party is just around the corner.  

Come join us on Friday, December 20th at 7PM at Clébard and help us ring in the holidays.

NB:  This year there is $25 fixed dinner menu and a drink ticket included with your price of cover.

RSVP here and if you’re a first time to the Meetup it is free (message me to RSVP).   

Don’t forget there will be over $1,000 worth prizes so don’t miss out.  

Look forward to seeing all of you there!

 

The Most Wonderful Week of the Year –

There will be no Weekly Market Outlook video this week but here’s an interesting factoid from Todd Hanna at Quantifiable Edges to help you prepare for this week’s trading.

With the exception of last December, we are entering the time of year when the market typically has the seasonal winds at its back and this OPEX week in December has a particularly bullish tendency.  

Don’t fight the Santa Clause rally.

Visualizing the major world stock markets – 

And finally with less than 11 trading days left in the trading year and with the decade coming to an end here’s an interesting visualization that nicely sums up the tear that the world’s major stock markets have been on since November 1990.

Surprisingly the US S&P 500 has had the greatest relative returns for the past 30 years up +900%!

Country Benchmark / Current Value (in S&P 500 terms) / Gain since Nov 26, 1990

  • 🇺🇸 United States S&P 500 3,168 +901%
  • 🇭🇰 Hong Kong Hang Seng Comp. 2,926 +824%
  • 🇩🇪 Germany DAX 30 2,913 +820%
  • 🇨🇦 Canada S&P/TSX Comp. 1,717 +444%
