Greg Peel is scheduled to return after Australia Day.
SPI futures this morning are indicating a weaker end to a rather wishy-washy weekly performance that saw technology and high PE stocks in particular feeling the brunt of money outflows.
While everybody's focus remains on bond markets and central bank commentary, our five cents worth is that investors are being taught a harsh lesson about (over)crowded positions.
When everybody leans the same way and then reverses course, the boat will look like it is sinking to the one side, albeit only for the time being. Of course, as no-one knows how much money is still looking to shift, it is equally impossible at this stage to accurately predict how long this process still has to run.
But it will end. When the Fat Lady stops singing, presumably (and those with cash at hand will jump on the freshly-minted opportunities).
Commodities, gold and silver included, had a down-day generally, with oil and iron ore chipping in too, which likely explains the rather subdued looking indication by the SPI futures this morning.
After today follows the weekend, which in the current context means shares won't continue falling for at least 48 hours. Enjoy.
