Profiting From Multiple Time Frame Sector Analysis

"As October draws to a close, there is continued debate as to what sectors offer the best potential for the rest of the year and for 2014. It is important to look at each of the sectors from a monthly, weekly, and daily perspective in order to get a clear outlook whether you are a trader or investor. The monthly charts, as I have discussed in a previous Trading Lesson, can be very helpful in determining the major trends. They are also very useful in identifying key levels of support as breakouts of the monthly ranges are often quite significant. So which sector looks best now?"

WTI Crude Falls below $95 as U.S. Stockpiles Increase

For the first time since June this year, WTI (West Texas Intermediate) crude fell below $95 a barrel sending alarm to oil companies. This is happening amidst the news that U.S. stockpiles have increased to a great extent. On the other hand the dollar has gained versus the euro as the latter has fallen remarkably.

Earlier, a recent report by the U.S. Energy Information Administration showed that monthly average prices for crude oil continued to increase in August where the average domestic crude oil first purchase price rose $1.52 (1.5 percent), to $103.13 per barrel. Similarly, there was an increase in the average free-on-board cost of imported crude oil as it got a growth of $1.04 which is 1.0 percent increase.

Thus, it reached $102.50 per barrel. There was also an increase in the average landed cost of foreign crude oil which it increased to $1.83 i.e. 1.8 percent and reached $102.86 per barrel.

RBA Keeps Cash Rate Unchanged At 2.5%

The Reserve Bank of Australia on Tuesday decided to keep its benchmark cash rate unchanged at a record low of 2.5 percent, in line with economists' forecast.

The central bank said that the Australian dollar is still "uncomfortably high", and a lower level of the exchange rate is needed to achieve balanced growth in the economy.

The Reserve Bank Board, at the same time, judged that the current setting of the monetary policy remained "appropriate".

Kuroda: BoJ monetary stimulus having positive effect on economy

During a meeting with credit cooperative officials on Friday, Bank of Japan head Haruhiko Kuroda assured that the central bank's injections of monetary stimulus had been having favorable effects on the Japanese economy. He projected further gradual recovery and quicker annual Core CPI growth.

"The BOJ will continue with quantitative and qualitative easing, aiming to achieve the price stability target of 2 percent, as long as it is necessary for maintaining this in a stable manner," Kuroda said.

At its last meeting the BoJ decided to keep the monetary expansion at an annual rate of JPY 60-70B, while upgrading its view on capital expenditure.
