Risk Mood Steadies

Markets are doing the same today it seems with US stocks opening mixed and European stocks edging lower for a second straight day. Although there is increasing noise about the bubble mania of some equity markets, we know that further fiscal stimulus in the US is coming and offers key support for stocks. This should encourage further sector rotation out of growth to value stocks, such as energy and financials.

January is always an interesting month for stock market statistics, being the first of the year and the tone it can set for the year as a whole. The direction of this month has predicted the performance of the rest of the year some 75% of the time, be it gains or losses for the month. Of course, we await the inauguration of a new US President in eight days and the first year of the new incumbent of the Oval Office statistically has the lowest average return rate. And twelve of the last sixteen presidential election years followed the direction in January. Perhaps the critical point is that January tends to be one of the best return months of the year.

While the Dollar is also taking a breather from its counter-trend exertions over the last few trading sessions, bond yields are still on a tear, moving higher for six straight days and hitting post-Covid highs once more. The rise in real yields is really taking a hold on markets and is a potential big driver for the Fed and its policy direction. Markets have pushed the first rate hike forward and with Fed speakers recently talking more positively about the economy, this could be a headwind for risk assets in 2021 and support for King Dollar – which is very much against current consensus!

Sterling today’s clear winner

Governor Bailey has been on the wires today scotching talk of negative interest rates as he believes ‘there are still lots of issues’ with cutting rates below zero, one of them being that it crimps lending. In turn money markets have pushed back bets for a 10bp rate cut to 0% by the Bank of England to December from August. UK hospitals remain at breaking point but there are signs that infections are stabilising.

Once again, the bullish channel from the September 2020 lows in Cable continues to do its job after prices dipped yesterday. The 20-day Moving Average is supporting the bulls with 1.35 and 1.3450 offering support below.

ActivTrades Offers Commission-Free Equities Trading

The brokerage will not charge transaction fees on all the European, UK and US stocks it offers for non-leveraged retail investors nor will there be any swap rate charges for maintaining positions overnight. This provides an excellent opportunity for clients to diversify their portfolios without incurring costs.

Traders will also benefit from so-called fractional trading, where you can buy a fraction of a certain share. This will allow smaller players to gain exposure to the world’s largest companies without having to overcommit their available capital. For example, an individual can buy 1/100th of an Amazon share, costing around $30 rather than a full share that would cost more than $3,000 currently.
“We’re constantly working to offer our customers the best service and make trading as easy and as cost-effective as possible,’’ said Alex Pusco, CEO of ActivTrades. Zero commission on equities is the cherry on the cake with our platform offering a large majority of listed assets, including more than a thousand CFDs, tradable at the best price execution. With the volatility of last year showing no sign of slowing in 2021, these removal of fees makes it the ideal time for new investors to enter the markets.”

ActivTrades, which will this year celebrate its 20th birthday since launching in 2001, enjoyed a record year in 2020 with the surge in volatility on markets as well as the success of its ActivTrader platform

Sharply increasing revenue. The brokerage, which is headquartered in London, recently opened an office in Luxembourg that will be its European hub following the UK’s exit from the European Union. The addition complements ActivTrades’ office in Nassau, Bahamas to serve clients across the world.

Spreadex Reduces Minimum Stake Requirements on 100s of Markets

The move has been made to help offer better value trading opportunities to investors during the current turbulent climate, meaning cheaper access for those who want to open positions on the global markets.

For example, the minimum stake to trade Wall Street – i.e. the Dow Jones – has fallen from £1.00 to just 10p, meaning you can hold a position with a deposit of less than £150. Elsewhere the minimum stake to trade the UK 100 has dropped from £1 to 50p, with both the Germany 30 and GBP/USD down from £1 to 20p.

Spreadex spokesperson Connor Campbell said: “2020 has posed some unique challenges for investors, with market sentiment often turning on a dime. That’s why we at Spreadex wanted to allow traders greater fluidity when managing their portfolios and positions, by reducing the cost at the point of entry.

“It goes back to Spreadex’s ethos of allowing investors to trade what they want, how they want and when they want. It is now easier than ever to get involved with financial spread betting at Spreadex, and these reduced minimum stakes present investors with the ability to be more nimble and fleet-footed when it comes to market volatility.

“With a powerful and fully-customisable trading platform, unparalleled customer service and thousands of markets on offer, Spreadex has once again strengthened its hand as being among the best spread betting brokers in the world.”

Established in 1999, Spreadex is regulated by the FCA. Offering spread bets, CFDs, forex, Options, ETFs and more, Spreadex has recorded profits every year since 2008.
