I use a leverage ranging from 10-1 to 100-1. Leverage is important, but not as important as the portion of your account that is used for open positions.

Speaking of surprises:

Beware of March NFPs. They have the worst record than any other month.

The table in the Premium section shows the consistency of misses (actual figure below consensus forecasts) in March NFPs over the last three years. In fact, NFP figures for the month of March have come in below forecasts in 7 out of the last 8 March reports with an average miss of -59k.

Genesis,

As far academic books:
"Animal Spirits" by Shiller.
"Depression Economics" by krugman.
“The Only Game In Town: Central Banks, Instability and Avoiding the Next Collapse” by El Erian


nextSignals,

Not sure how long the safehaven to USD will last if a new crisis prompts the Fed into easing. Remember: unlike in 2007-08 when the tightening was led by the Europeans and EMs, the Fed at the time was in neutral mode. Today it's the opposite: Fed is in tightening move (if you can call it that) & rest is in easing.

This is a poll about what will the Fed LIKELY do and NOT what it should do in December.

I continue to expect the Fed will stay on hold next month, despite mounting probabilities of a hike, courtesy of the Oct jobs and services ISM. An earnings and manufacturing recession will prove punishing in the event of a rate hike. The Dec outcome will partly depend on the Dec 2nd ECB decision and Dec 3rd US jobs report. EM tensions may have eased since September but the deflationary pressures have already reached the shores of the US and those gains in hourly earnings will prove unsustainable (as they’re already proving to be in the UK). US labour markets have definitely tightened, but inflation remains at 1.3% according to the Fed’s policy gauge of core PCE price index (not 1.6%, 1.5% or 1.9% as it’s widely and erroneously stated).

won’t even mention further declines in CAPEX, gains in high yields and % of US firms downgraded by credit rating agencies.

I could go on, but regular readers of our IMTs have already got the picture.
