Time to short Guar

We talked about topping Guar Jiseki cycle first on 13 Sep. Now the Jiseki cycles have turned down and Guar is also done with the bounce back. This should be an excellent opportunity to Short Guar.

The latest Alpha Agro carries anticipated and happened cases on Chana, Soybean Oil, Ground Nut and Sugar. The view on Cotton and Palm Oil is topping and negative on the intermediate multi week view. Masoor remains a great bottoming story.

We have carried a special case on Coriander along with a last mile technical case on the commodity.

Enjoy the latest Alpha India Agro special.

Our Jiseki Time cycles are seasonal patterns of strength or weakness in assets. They are derived from percentile rankings of 0 to 100. The higher the percentile more the chance for an asset to weaken and worst the ranking, better the chance for the respective asset to outperform. The current agro complex comparison puts Cotton and Sugar at the top and sesame and wheat at the bottom near 10%. Such low percentile rankings make Sesame and Wheat attractive holds. To latest report carries the Jiseki cycles for the agro assets with targets and projections for wheat, soybeans, coffee, sesame and coriander.

The Dollar Collapse?

Now that EURUSD has broken a primary true trendline and heads to next resistance at 1.5, the dollar collapse is in the news. From a sentiment point of view the fall in dollar is nearly 12 month old and EUR has strengthened 25% against dollar during this period. This is a good time for sentiment to get bearish on dollar. If we go back in Jun 2010, it was EUR collapse that was in the news. And street talk was about EUR Dollar Parity. Sentiment rolls over with time. Now 1.5 is a key resistance for EURUSD and respective levels should also mark a sentiment extreme against Dollar. Above this the EURUSD price structure from Jun 2010 low does not seem to be a five wave trended structure. It looks more like a 3 wave corrective counter trend.

From a cycle point of view the weekly UUP Dollar ETF Jiseki cycles (red, blue, grey) are bottoming and suggesting that Dollar is more likely to bottom against global currencies than otherwise. Whether it take a few weeks or another quarter more is hard to say now. But when the dollar will reverse, the move should be secular and a larger one than what we have seen on 12 month EUR strengthening. Dollar could strengthen for a few years. What it means for European Union and what it means for the world at large, is something sentiment can not understand or visualize now. Sentiment like everything follows time. When the cycle is up, sentiment is up and vice versa. After 1.5 EURUSD we review.

In this latest Alpha Global we have carried Short Commodity ETF DDP daily and weekly Jiseki cycles. On the daily cycles DDP shows signs of bottoming while on an Intermediate time frame the commodity secular trend remains down. This means that even of commodity on an aggregate basis might fall, the larger multi year trend on commodities is still up. Copper, Sugar, Silver, Cotton are the top ranked over a quarter and hence most likely to continue underperformance. While Wind, livestock, Wheat, Cocoa are the worst commodities, which are likely to outperform. US Equity worst rankers (which are best potential holds and outperformers) are EXC, ERS, RTN, WPO. On Forex rankings US Dollar is the worst and Australian Dollar and Swiss Franc are the top rankers suggesting some underperformance on Australian dollar and Swiss Franc. The report also carries an Alpha Global hedge Portfolio.

Performance cycles is a term coined by Orpheus Capitals. This is another name for time triads, time arbitrage, time fractals but expressed in terms of relative performance. It’s a bounded oscillator that moves in a range say from 1 to 30. 1 is top relative performance and 30 is worst performance. The idea is that performance is cyclical. A top performer will underperform in future and vice versa. A top relative performer is also the worst value pick and the top relative underperformer is the best value pick.

Time is a social construct and we see time through the life and nature around us. Understanding time can not only give a unifying theory to research of a few thousand years, but also help us understand the world we live in. Time evolves, oscillates and continues. Time comes before everything, but we don’t see it. We just feel it. We believe what we see and this is why understanding what we don’t see is a challenge. Understanding time could bring more than a conventional thought down, it’s a revolution, which could rock the very foundation of economic thought or the geometric structures Euclid laid down in 300 BC. We are at the start of the journey, but if time is indeed the real mathematics, we could see high accuracy in time forecasts.

Econohistory is the study of performance cycles between assets. Cycles are the generic name for time fractals. Performance cycles can be studied for any time frame, for as small as a tick data to multiyear time frames. This objective approach to performance cyclicality can explain why intermarket analysis is an area of study? Why bonds and commodities tend to be inversely related? What is the connection of Oil with world markets? Why the world watches DOW sometimes and sometimes a 500 point effect on DOW seems to have no impact? Why correlation between assets moves from near perfect at times to weak correlation at other times? Why the same news has different impact on a stock or market? Why equities and bond trend together and why the relationship decouples sometime? When will inflation become deflation, disinflation, stagflation or hyperinflation?

Long zinc, short coffee delivers 9% (7 days)

Despite starting counterparty odds, long zinc -  short coffee was up 9% and long AIGI (industrial metals) - short gold was up 14%. This week we are doing another pair rollover. We are closing the short heating oil leg and plugging the long AIGE (Energy Index) leg with Natural Gas. The Natgas Rieki is turning against dollar and also against Brent and AIGE. Our global asset rankings are benchmarked to dollar, so as natural gas moves up to top three, we don’t want to hold it as a naked asset anymore.

Alpha Pair Tracker


The other running pairs like short carbon emissions ETF and Crude, Short Carbon Emission and AIGI (industrial metals) delivered 1.6% and 8% since 15 July respectively. Long Euro – Short dollar is up 16% and still running. GBP USD and JPY gave first signals of exhaustion against dollar.

During an internal brainstorming session, the question which emerged was “Why should be just look at extreme divergence to short the best and long the worst?” and “Why can’t we say keeps the low divergence pair running, say between wheat and grains (No. 4 and 10)?”

The whole idea of playing extreme divergence is about accepting that one can try understanding that assets have diverged more than normal and the path of least resistance is to low or neutral divergence when for example coffee and zinc reduce the gap from worst and best to somewhere mid way. Working with low divergence pairs or non extreme pairs is like guessing how a backwardation will resolve, very tough.

On a final note, our top ranking coffee was number 2 this week. Sugar assumed the top ranking spot. What a better time to talk about sugar but now. Sugar was in the news and the majority is made to believe that there is no asset better than sugar today. For us at Orpheus, Sugar should not only underperform dollar, but also more than a few global assets over the next few weeks. The latest Alpha carries the pair tracker with updated signals and global asset rankings.

The Hunt brothers – II

The historical case of silver Thursday suggests cornering of assets is a cyclical event with probable consequences.

Cornering markets may have come off age, but even today traders dare to take large bets. How safe is it? What do historical cases suggest? Are there any signatures linked with such trades? What does numeric ranking of global portfolio suggest? Time does not differentiate between assets. If coffee is the best in a quarter compared to 54 global assets and Zinc is the worst, it’s easy to make a cross asset case, where we go long Zinc and short Coffee. We initiate the pair today.

Long Agricultural Index!

The DJ-UBSCI Agricultural Index traded as an ETF (AIGA.L) at London Stock Exchange not only provides risk diversification in the coming inflationary times, but is also an integral part of Alpha Agro pairs. AIGA is the benchmark index for the agro asset coverage. This week we have a few running pairs long AIGA and short Hogs, Grains and Wheat. All of wheat, Grains and Hogs should underperform. This underperformance comes after a previous grains outperformance against AIGA from 8 April to 4 May. Grains complex outperformed AIGA marginally by 5%.  The polarity has reversed now, as outperformance turns into underperformance.

And all our readers who are still wondering what happened to Sugar, we have illustrated the Numeric Rankings for Agro assets.  On 24 March Sugar was at the bottom of rankings and now the asset has moved to the top slot delivering 10% against AIGA from 3 Jun. Sugar also delivered against Corn as the pair moved up 16% in 25 days. But despite all the sugar positivity, there are Softs like Coffee that are low in Numeric Ranking should outperform Sugar. The Numeric ranking clearly illustrates shifting performance as top rankers fall and worst rankers deliver.

Grains get ready to outperform

Did you know that grains have been underperforming agricultural index since 19 Dec 2008. Long AIGA (Agricultural Index) - Short Grains delivered 60% (45% annualized). Grains have reached performance cycle lows and suggest a reversal in polarity. After underperforming 67% since 5 Feb against AIGA, sugar is still bottoming on the performance cycle. We don’t have a reversal signal yet on the SOFT. We continue to look at a reversal on COTTON, CATL and AIGL (livestock Index) against AIGA.

What is the connection of Oil with world markets? Why the world watches DOW sometimes and sometimes a 500 point effect on DOW seems to have no impact? Why correlation between assets moves from near perfect at times to weak correlation at other times? Why the same news has different impact on a stock or market? Why equities and bond trend together and why the relationship decouples sometime? When will inflation become deflation, disinflation, stagflation or hyperinflation? When and why does gold outperform and underperform silver? Econohistory can objectively answer these questions, using performance cycles, time fractals and past data. Economic history is mathematical.
