During the recent market outlook about two weeks back, I shared an interesting phenomenon I discovered on my trade plans for Dow Jones and S & P 500. 


Both charts were pointing towards a topping out pattern, reinforcing my conviction that a major market  correction is near the horizon.

Sinopec (0386.HK) set to benefit from rising energy demand.

Crude oil prices reached close to 2014 peaks after the OPEC+ group of producers stuck to its planned output increase rather than pumping even more crude on Tuesday.
Numerous natural events happening across the globe (a freak winter freeze in Texas, lightning strike in Louisiana and hurricanes along the Gulf Coast) have conspired to disrupt production and raise prices of essential chemicals.
Sinopec (0386.HK) being a crude oil and chemical producer is likely to be a beneficiary of rising crude oil and chemical prices.

Stagflation scare is coming, get ready for it!

A stagflation scarce not seen since the 1980s is coming and we need to be prepared .

Financial Times article: “Italy’s poor households feel the pain of surging energy costs”, 27 September 2021)

Bed Bath&Beyond stock (NASDAQ:BBBY) plunged nearly 25% in Thursday’s trading as supply chain issues dented its second-quarter sales and forced the retailer to cut its annual guidance.Prices of raw materials rose, and coupled with higher freight costs, ate into the company’s profits.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi on Thursday (23 September) announced measures worth three billion euros to keep gas and electricity bills down this winter as power prices soar across Europe.

“In the absence of government intervention, in the next quarter the price of electricity could increase by around 40%, and that of gas by 30%,” Draghi said.

We can expect for govt intervention globally to help consumers weather the effect of inflation.

Natural gas prices in America and Germany have now risen by 117% and 355% year to date, while the China thermal coal price is up 78%

A severe drought in Brazil is set to ravage orange juice, sugar and coffee adding to food inflation woes .

The energy crisis has prompted U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson to put the army on standby to ease shortage. China is so worried about the winter that it ordered energy companies to buy up supplies, no matter the cost.

We can also expect the Fed to stick to their lines that inflation is transitory quoting it’s because of the “special circumstances “ that the world is facing and it will blow away soon . Don’t believe it !


While the Fed is “ kicking the can down the road “ and not doing anything to stop inflation , the world is suffering the collateral damage to economic growth, and households’ real incomes, caused by the ambitious energy transition. The global green effort to curb carbon emission is causing a worldwide shortage of energy at a time the world is reopening from Covid pandemic


The energy crisis has prompted U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson to put the army on standby to ease shortage. China is so worried about the winter that it ordered energy companies to buy up supplies, no matter the cost.

The Chinese government measures to reduce energy consumption are having a dampening impact on growth , power shortages in China have already spread to 20 provinces as they race to meet emission targets before the Winter Olympics in February 2022 .

The continuing evidence in both America and Eurozone of labour shortages, when combined with the energy price surge, is making another inflation scare seem ever more inevitable and in irreversible at least until mid 2022. This should reactivated the cyclical trade in terms of a renewed outperformance of value over growth and by logic be negative for high multiple growth stocks particularly the overvalued tech stocks in the US market . Stay away from overvalued tech stocks for now !

I think the world is caught flat footed this time with the green effort backfiring and the Covid pandemic had added to the problem . What an ironies , the world is faced with a shortage of the second most abundant element of supplies and there is no easy way out , we need to be prepared and bite the inflation bullet .
