Seasonality chart of the day

Seasonal influences for the NASDAQ 100 trading in Canadian Dollars are favourable between May 21st and August 31st. Investment choices for Canadian investors using Canadian Dollars are ZQQ.TO and XQQ.TO.


Strength in ZQQ.TO and XQQ.TO relative to the S&P 500 Index have just turned positive at a time when the S&P 500 Index is starting to show early signs of a possible technical bottom. Both units track the NASDAQ 100 Index with a currency hedge relative to the U.S. Dollar.



Watching inflation expectations in the U.S.

Larry Berman on Berman’s Call yesterday mentioned an important chart that is useful for measuring inflation expectations in the U.S. In recent weeks, investors have been anticipating an increase in CPI and PPI and have marked down U.S. equity indices accordingly. A drop in inflation expectations likely will be the trigger for an intermediate term recovery in U.S. equity indices. Larry noted that an ETF is available that measures inflation expectation. Symbol is RINF. The ETF shows that inflation expectations likely peaked early last week. Additional weakness and potentially completion of a double top pattern on a move below $31.83 will add to U.S. equity index strength. Keep this ETF on your radar screen!
