“Fed Watch” is a macro podcast, true to bitcoin’s rebellious nature. Every episode, we query mainstream and Bitcoin narratives by inspecting present occasions in macro from throughout the globe, with an emphasis on central banks and currencies.

On this episode of “Fed Watch,” Christian Keroles and I’m going by a number of charts, utilizing them to springboard into completely different subjects. We cowl the bitcoin chart, the U.S. greenback, the Hong Kong greenback, U.S. Treasury yields and vitality charts like oil, gasoline and pure gasoline.

Bitcoin And Different Currencies

We begin our dialogue with a quite simple chart of the bitcoin value. The indicator on the fitting is volume-by-price, and it reveals the commerce quantity at every value degree. This quantity tends to draw bids and asks like a Schelling level. I count on the value to maneuver up into the low-volume hole within the mid-$20,000s.


Subsequent is the U.S. greenback, and that is the place the “Fed Watch” podcast has been method forward of the curve. We’ve been saying the greenback will strengthen throughout all of 2021, whereas most others in Bitcoin and macro have been screaming a couple of greenback crash.

As you’ll be able to see on the chart, the greenback has damaged its latest parabolic pattern, signaling its rise will seemingly sluggish right into a interval of consolidation.

Beneath is a month-to-month long-term chart of the greenback index (DXY). I’ve added shaded packing containers to point a stair-step upward transfer within the greenback post-International Monetary Disaster (GFC). I count on the greenback to maneuver into the following larger vary over the approaching years.


I included a chart of the Hong Kong greenback (HKD) to show the forex stress in China. As you’ll be able to see, it’s on the prime quality, which means the HKD desires to depreciate towards the greenback, however the Hong Kong Financial Authority is utilizing its U.S. greenback reserves to purchase HKD devices with the intention to preserve the peg.


The final forex chart we now have is the Japanese yen (JPY). It’s presently 6% off its latest low towards the greenback (on this chart, the yen falling is proven because the greenback strengthens).

One fascinating factor I level out on the podcast is that the very high of the chart corresponds to the Japanese elections they only had. These latest elections additionally noticed the very uncommon assassination of Shinzo Abe. That’s two very uncommon occasions across the election: crashing yen and the assassination of a well-liked chief.

The results of the election was that the conservative celebration marginally elevated their variety of seats within the authorities. On the podcast, I speculate concerning the conservative versus globalist perspective of those uncommon occasions surrounding the election.


U.S. Treasury Yields

We shortly check out the 2 charts beneath and have a dialogue about yield curves and what they could possibly be telling us proper now.


Everyone seems to be so enamored by the Federal Reserve, totally believing in its mythological powers. Nonetheless, you’d perceive the macro financial system higher in case you forgot the Fed existed in any respect and easily seemed on the charts to see what they’re attempting to let you know.

Yields and inversions are telling us that the biggest, most subtle market on the earth is more and more and quickly hedging towards a near-term danger. Because the curves strategy zero (see the second chart above) and finally go detrimental, the likelihood of an acute credit score occasion is changing into increasingly more seemingly.

Vitality Charts

A big portion of the rise within the client value index (CPI) is because of vitality costs and provide shocks. On the podcast, we breakdown U.S. oil and gasoline, then European pure gasoline.


The above chart is West Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil. As you’ll be able to see, it’s proper on assist. If it breaks decrease right here, we may see a fall into a lot decrease ranges.

Subsequent, looking at the long run WTI value chart (beneath), you see that the latest spike didn’t match the spike from the GFC. Historic assist sits beneath the present value at round $75-80 per barrel.


U.S. gasoline futures, nonetheless, did attain a brand new excessive this time, when in comparison with the GFC. Regardless of this, it too has pulled again and is threatening to drop decrease.

The ethical of this vitality story within the U.S. is that international demand is shrinking whereas international provide is comparatively steady. Even U.S. manufacturing is steady and rising, regardless of the makes an attempt by the present administration to humble the vitality trade.


The following two charts we coated on the podcast briefly. They’re each European pure gasoline futures; Dutch contracts, to be particular.


I identified through the episode that the July 2023 contract is now above the place the present value was only a couple months in the past. Issues can clearly change earlier than the center of 2023, however what this chart is telling us is that if nothing adjustments quickly, crippling vitality costs will solely proceed for Europe. The ball is within the globalists’ courtroom.

Russian Sanctions Soften

The warmth is being turned up on the globalists sanctioning Europe. Within the podcast, I learn by a latest article from the Monetary Occasions, that goes by how the latest sanctions bundle from July successfully removes lots of the sanctions. As soon as once more, goal actuality wins and the faux actuality bought to us by the globalists is falling aside.

European governments have eased again on efforts to curb commerce in Russian oil, delaying a plan to close Moscow out of the very important Lloyd’s of London maritime insurance coverage market and permitting some worldwide shipments amid fears of rising crude costs and tighter international vitality provides. […]

“Nonetheless, the EU has amended a part of its personal sanctions to allow European firms to cope with some Russian state-owned entities, corresponding to Rosneft, for the aim of transporting oil to nations exterior the bloc.

“European firms will not be blocked from paying the likes of Rosneft, ‘if these transactions are strictly mandatory,’ for the acquisition or transport of crude or petroleum merchandise to 3rd nations, a European Fee spokesperson advised the FT.

“The EU mentioned in a press release that the measures have been taken to ‘keep away from any potential detrimental penalties for meals and vitality safety world wide.’”

Nancy Pelosi’s Taiwan Journey And China’s Bluff

“Fed Watch” is not any fan of the present globalist administration within the U.S., nonetheless, Consultant Pelosi’s journey to Taiwan brings up some essential nuances to the present geopolitical chessboard.

China is the most important beneficiary of globalization as we speak. If you’re on the facet of the folks towards the globalists and statists, you would need to be towards the Chinese language Communist Social gathering (CCP). Additionally, on this particular incident, the U.S. is taking part in the position of the anti-globalist energy as a result of by the world’s present perverse geopolitical incentive construction, backing Taiwan is the populist transfer.

The lasting impact of Pelosi’s journey goes to be the humiliation of the CCP. Earlier than she went, I mentioned on a number of events that the robust rhetoric from China confirmed they have been truly unable to do something about it. The “Artwork of Conflict” says to look sturdy the place you might be weak. So, the CCP ramped up their aggressive rhetoric to look sturdy. The U.S. known as its bluff.

Different ramifications of this transfer embody the bolstering of the U.S.’s biggest ally within the area, Japan, the arch-rival of China.
