The Good Morning Report

The latest market news, commentary and strategy by Adrian Rowney 

5 Things that Grabbed my Attention

1. Yesterday morning, $Aussie dollar GOLD prices hit a FRESH ALL TIME HIGH of $2935...It's now pulled back a bit to $2883.

2. ECB raised rates by 0.5% as the Swiss National Bank gave Credit Suisse a $54bn line of credit....European markets rallied overnight - I wouldn't get too excited; the financial system remains super dicey.

3. Inflation in Argentina just hit 103%....Brutal.

4. Latitude Financial (LFS) shares are in a trading halt as they have been hacked....Very happy that we have no exposure; MAINTAIN AVOID ON FINANCIALS

5. Aussie economy is proving very resilient as 64K people found a job in Feb. The unemployment rate fell to 3.5%....RBA likely forced to raise rates again next month. SQUEEZIE SQUEEZIE.

ASX Market Update

ASX 200 down 103 points to 6965

As widely expected, our market copped another touch up due to the debacle over at Credit Suisse (CS). I was surprised we didn't rally, as during the session we did learn the Swiss National Bank was coming to the rescue by providing CS a line of credit of $54bn to ensure it has sufficient liquidity.

It's now likely that WESTERN governments are going to backstop every banking deposit - therefore your money in the bank will be safe throughout this crisis.... but....the big question is: what will happen to the purchasing power of your money as central banks get forced to ramp up money printing to bail out the financial system??...We could end up with SUPER INFLATION which would devastate savings...Stay tuned, you don't want to miss one of my morning reports as the action heats up!!

Random Observation

GOLD has a 5000 year history as a store of wealth, yet bugger all advisors recommend their clients invest.....I think it is all by design; advisors who are GOLD/ SILVER bugs get ridiculed by their peers, because being bullish on PRECIOUS METALS is declaring your lack of trust for the financial system. Plus banks/brokers don't like customers with core holdings in METALS because they are more likely to sit and not turn over their accounts.

The Day Ahead

  • Our SPI is up 14 points
  • Bitcoin up 2.8% to $25,002

Movements affecting our resource stocks today (USD)

  • BHP in the US down 1%
  • Gold down 0.32% to $1925
  • Paper Silver down 0.33% to $21.81 (Incredible the banks are keeping a lid on it, demand is spiking!! Clock is ticking on the naked shorts.)
  • Platinum up 1% to $981
  • Copper up 0.78% to $3.87
  • Brent Crude up 1.2% to $74.58
  • Iron ore down 2.6% to $128.48

Asian Market Update

Japan down 0.8%, Hong Kong off by 1.78% and China fell 1.12%

Xi Man continues to SELL US government bonds....What's he doing with the moula??? He is buying GOLD!!

A historic transition is taking place...

Pay attention to this kind of stuff; back to 2009 - China was just a $5 Trillion economy!!

Global Market Update

US Market

DOW up 371 points to 32,246

US stocks rallied as the major banks agreed to deposit a whopping $30bn into First Republic Bank (FRB)....The big banks have been inundated with cash as Americans rip out their money from smaller banks...I see the move as just plugging one hole in a very leaky ship.

The beaten up FRB only rallied 9% on the news.

European Markets

Germans up 1.57%, Brits added 0.89% and Frenchies put on 2%

European stocks rallied as the Swiss National Bank effectively bailed out Credit Suisse (CS) with a $54bn line of credit. CS shares rallied 19% and is now trading like a specky crypto rather than a 166 year old bank!

Tracy & Adrian's knowledge/experience with financial markets, greater global & domestic political/economic impacts & individual companies/stocks is not just unique & refreshing, but also gives great peace of mind. Having a team this capable taking care of your hard earned to help avoid knowable negative impacts, and/or take advantage of opportunities well ahead of time is like nothing I've experienced before. Could not recommend highly enough. Subscribe to Adrian's newsletter too if you want a no B.S. commentary that is unlike the sanitised drivel coming from mainstream financial reporting.

A huge thanks To Tracy And Adrian from Super Equity for sharing their knowledge on the recent Introduction To The Stock market Course I attended. The course was fabulous and gave a great insight on how the world operates from Share Markets, to Economic Cycles, World Currencies and great tips on how to look for opportunities on how and where to invest based on local news and world events along with overseas markets and indicators. Also thanks again Adrian for the Silver coin for 1st prize as part of the demo share market game we played over the duration of the course. Would thoroughly recommend the Stock Market course as well Tracy and Adrian's knowledge on our own investments. Cheers Charlie

Receiving the daily morning reports has been helpful to understand and learn the market. We have always highly recommended and will not hesitate to recommend Tracy and team for any and all financial guidance. Thank you Tracy and look forward to your continual support.

Tracy has been an amazing teacher. I have gone from having no idea about what my super was doing and feeling really overwhelmed by the thought of all that it involved, to now being in control and understanding. Through super equity's I have a transparent, easy to understand managed fund. Tracy has even put me into contact with advisors specialised in life insurance and income protection. I cannot thank Tracy enough for empowering me and helping me organise all my affairs. If you need someone patient an knowledgeable to organise your super and investment portfolio, Tracy is the best!!

The service and support received from Super Equity has reached and surpassed all our expectations. Having previous experience with stock brokering firms over an 11 year period has highlighted to me how superior the service and support received from Tracy Askew at Super Equity is. For myself and for my clients. Tracy's in depth fundamental and technical knowledge in all areas of the market reduces many hours of my time in the research needed to be successful and profitable for myself and my clients.
