    A toppy time for tech... and for Trump?

    From the Floor: Trump turmoil tempered — #SaxoStrats

    An absence of further incriminating evidence against US President Donald Trump yesterday saw a rebound in government bonds as well as a slight recovery in equities, albeit primarily driven by biotech. Meanwhile south of the equator, the Brazilian Real ended Thursday down 9% following news that the country's president may have paid bribes.

    Following yesterdays article;
    I thought we should look at SP500 and Nasdaq(QQQ) and compare equally for relative strength weakness etc.
    Note the chart showing which market is leading the other. Ignore the usdcad redline for the moment.
    Also when looking for disparity in indices I have highlighted (grey arrow) a divergence which is as all option traders know max duress. When IV/IVR become stretched there are always opportunities to buy one and sell the other. In this case NASDAQ was inverse to sp500 so long the former and sell the latter. Even as a spot market trade on a 1:1 price structure (expensive) you would have gained approx +60 net from the NAS ! Or if you wanted to trade directionally with higher risk but less cost LONG NAS for the same result.
