With investors anticipating a quieter market on Monday without as many players, people might not have been as anxious to buy stocks ahead of the holiday.

    Morgan Stanley Goes Cold on European Stocks

    (Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.After sending European stocks surging to multi-year highs on trade optimism, investors may hit the brakes on the rally, according to Morgan Stanley.Optimism about a U.S.-China trade deal and receding risks of no-deal Brexit have boosted shares in recent weeks, with the Stoxx Europe 600 Index now less than 2% away from a record high reached in 2015.“With European equities now up over 10% from their August lows, there is a case to be made that equity markets may be due a pause,” Morgan Stanley strategist Graham Secker wrote in a note to clients after the close of trading Friday. “We doubt that we are on the cusp of a meaningful rebound in corporate profits either here in Europe or in the U.S.”Technical indicators including relative strength are also “looking elevated,” according to Secker. The Stoxx 600 this week crossed above the overbought threshold, only to fall below it on Friday, signaling stocks may have rallied too much too soon.The RSI’s recent move above 70, along with the VStoxx Index of euro-area swings and the the CBOE Volatility Index dropping below 13, “highlight that the risk-reward profile is no longer as enticing,” Secker said.While valuations don’t look too stretched in Europe compared with global peers, the current extent of equities’ outperformance relative to bund yields has historically been difficult to sustain, according to the strategist.The pan-European Stoxx 600 benchmark closed up 1.5% last week after news that Washington and Beijing had agreed to remove tariffs on goods and services passing between the two countries. There was some confusion on Friday, however, after President Donald Trump told reporters he hadn’t agreed to anything.\--With assistance from Lisa Pham.To contact the reporter on this story: Joe Easton in London at jeaston7@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Beth Mellor at bmellor@bloomberg.net, Namitha Jagadeesh, Marion DakersFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    VIX Is Low, Futures Are High and Macro Risk Sees Opportunity

    (Bloomberg) -- The divergence between short and long-term volatility is creating an opportunity for investors, according to some market participants.The Cboe Volatility Index, or VIX, closed at a three-month low Wednesday, part of a trend of lower price swings across asset classes. It was at 12.41 as of 11:01 a.m. Friday in New York versus its year-to-date average of about 15.9. At the same time, futures on the gauge remain at elevated levels as investors factor in U.S.-China tension, an uncertain economic outlook and a presidential election involving candidates with extremely divergent views.“We see a tactical opportunity in the short-term to capture a further sell-off in VXX,” said Maxwell Grinacoff, strategist at Macro Risk Advisors, in a note Thursday, referring to a short-term volatility-focused exchange-traded note. Similar levels of futures curves in the past have led to VXX declines, and the market can continue to trade range-bound around all-time highs with so little of earnings season left, he wrote.Grinacoff suggests the best way to capture the curve’s “rolldown” -- the move of futures toward the level of the spot price as they get closer to maturity -- is to buy put-option spreads on the VXX, the iPath Series B S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures exchange-traded note, according to the report.Longer-dated volatility pricing has been impacted by concerns about next year’s U.S. presidential election. Predictions of an equity sell-off if a particular candidate is victorious don’t have a good recent track record, but top-tier Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren is prompting particularly dire warnings from the likes of Paul Tudor Jones and Steve Cohen. RBC, on the other hand, says it might not be as bad as all that.Read: Obama Will Kill Stock Market. No, Trump Will. No, Warren Will“Investors want exposure to the broad markets, but still want to reduce risk around potential market uncertainty,” a Cboe spokesperson said via email. “We’ve begun offering October 2020 and November 2020 SPX expirations, based on what we’ve heard from customers about expected volatility around the primary elections next year.”\--With assistance from Rita Nazareth.To contact the reporter on this story: Joanna Ossinger in Singapore at jossinger@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Christopher Anstey at canstey@bloomberg.net, Cormac Mullen, Margo TowieFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Finally, the last bullish stock-market signal falls into place

    This brings the S&P (SPX) chart into a “bullish” status and puts it in line with our other indicators, which have been bullish for some time now. The next support area, however, is at 2950, which is where the very bullish gap exists for SPX (red circle on this chart). Meanwhile, the “modified Bollinger Bands” (mBB) have begun to contract, even while SPX is rising, because volatility is collapsing.

    Get ready for a jolly holiday season, and maybe a stock-market rally, Ned Davis Research says

    Financial markets have been relatively placid over the past few weeks, making it easy to forget last December. Uncertainty surged, stocks tanked, and $134 billion flowed out of U.S. exchange-traded and mutual funds. The chart below shows the spike in the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) often referred to as Wall Street’s “fear index.” It measures expected volatility over the coming 30-day period based on S&P 500 options activity.

    Don’t forget that this has been a very resilient market, but also keep in mind that with payrolls looming tomorrow, the big down-move we’ve had, and more jitters about geopolitics, it could still be a bumpy ride to end the week. The Cboe Volatility Index (VIX) is still above 20 this morning, and 20 is sometimes seen as the level that indicates elevated fear. Today could be a day of stabilization with volume a little light, partly because payrolls is tomorrow.
