    The S&P 500 ended the week on key support levels (see chart below) having failed to rally after the positive jobs report. However, USD traders were more impressed, pushing it higher. Money markets slightly increased the chance of rate hikes this year. We now await an update on China’s FX reserves position on Sunday and FOMC Chair Yellen’s view on the situation before the US Congress on Wednesday.

    Gold continues to rally nicely and is closely tracking my Bullish Analysis and Forecast (refer Daily and Weekly charts below)

    Short term

    UPDATE: FB iron condor moving profitable at expiry

    Denmark
    For the trade initiated on January 27, an earnings play on FB, after surging to a high of $117.59 profit taking has clearly taken over and shares are now reversing back into our condor's short vertical call spread (wing). At the time of writing FB is trading at $106.28 and below breakeven point of $107.60 and the condor could be bought back for $0.30 against the $0.60 received at initiation.

    Friday charts: JPY, European financials, sentiment, US yield curve
    European financial stocks have underperformed the rest of the market during the beginning of 2016. The divergence is large enough to suggest a reasonable market neutral spread-trading opportunity. Elsewhere, despite the Bank of Japan's negativity surprise, the JPY seems intent on not going anywhere - tread carefully! Meanwhile, the US yield curve has flattened, and the 10y-2y spread is lower than at any point since 2008.
