EBÈNE, MAURITIUS--(Marketwire - Nov. 28, 2012) - In his Market Brief of The Week for 26 November, leading global foreign exchange trader, educator and author Mario Sant Singh, focuses on looming U.S. fiscal cliff concerns, and the continuing Greek Bailout.
While risk appetite improved last week on Chinese economic data strengthening further, with optimism on a final compromise on the fiscal cliff in the coming weeks or months, worries still prevail in the fragile, broad environment.
According to Mario Sant Singh - whose views are widely sought after in the Forex industry, "Most investors are unwilling to increase their long 'risk," and one near term focus addresses the Bush U.S. tax cuts: taking it as a foregone conclusion that the payroll tax cut will be eliminated to the sharp detriment of Q1 disposable income, lowering spending cap limits established in last year's Budget Control Act and changing cost-of-living calculations in social security benefits. U.S. retail sales were negatively affected last month, and it is still unclear whether it was due to Hurricane Sandy or fiscal cliff," he added.
The HSBC Flash Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) continues supporting a "positive momentum" view on China, with a surge to 50.4, proving firm bottom signs and possible sustainable growth. Last week, "China related assets" such as HSCEI and the Aussie firmed their uptrend - with the Aussie holding strong fundamentals with firmer Chinese economic outlook and improving global sentiment. While the effect could be limited and stay in a short run, it offers some long Aussie opportunity at a lower price.
