Global Reflation Trade May Surprise Many Traders
Many traders fail to consider the amount of stimulus, policy spending, and the reflation capability of a global market that is emerging from COVID constrictions.

What is important to understand about this reflation trade is that global markets have already priced in forward expectations for most of 2021. As long as earnings continue to support forward guidance and continued reflation of the global economy, the stronger will attract foreign investment into the US stock market – much like what we’ve seen over the past 3 to 4+ years. Weaker foreign currencies and weaker foreign markets pull capital into the US market as a means to negate currency pressures and to create profits.
This shift in how capital is deployed may prompt a continued price rally in the US stock market for many more weeks or months. It all depends on how Q1:2021 earnings fair and how the US Dollar continues to trend. This suggests traders should be prepared for another round of strong trending if our research is correct.
