The 4th of July: busiest day of the year

Thursday, July 03, 2008

Markets may be slow or closed tomorrow for the 4th of July, but a guy like Macro Man always manages to occupy himself. Heck, tomorrow's "holiday market" promises to be the busiest day of the year for him. Consider his timeline:

6 am: Get in car, drive for two hours completely around London and then north for a good bit longer

8 am: Eat breakfast

9.15 am: Drive like a madman for three hours in cars like the one to the left, among others

12:30: Lunch

13:30: Drive like a madman for another three hours

16:30: Finish driving like a madman

16:40 Drive back south, then completely around London for another 2- 2.5 hours

19:00 Arrive at a hotel

19:15 Brush teeth, shower, change into black tie

20:00 Sit down to dinner at a charity ball

20:05 Over/under for when Macro Man falls asleep at the table

Have a good one MM ...

You have earned it I think ... nice to see that you have your mojo back as per reference to today's smart call of the EUR/USD action.

Oh, the JPY still has me wondering. I am not sure whether to expect risk correlations to re-emerge or fundamentals (i.e. outflows and decline in home bias) to take over.

Anyway, we can discuss that come Monday and beyond.

Pedal to the Metal.

A school, or a track day?

very nice call on the EUR yesterday. The resulting Key Day Reversal / Bearish Engulfing Candle against the 1.5850 range highs (and similar but reverse formation in USD/CHF) suggests that we could see a bit of a $ rally in the week ahead for a move back to the 1.5285/1.5305 area range lows.
