China central bank denies reports it told banks to deposit dollars (Reuters)

China's central bank has not adopted any measures requiring commercial banks to deposit dollars with it, the People's Bank of China (PBOC) said on Friday.

China Considers Changing Yuan Fixing Formula to Curb Swings (Bloomberg)

China is considering changes to the way it calculates the yuan’s daily reference rate against the dollar, a move that’s likely to reduce exchange-rate volatility while undermining efforts to increase the role of market forces in Asia’s largest economy.

China Exerts More Control Over Its Currency With Tweak to Yuan Fix (The Wall Street Journal)

China’s central bank said it was tweaking the mechanism for setting the yuan’s daily fix to smooth out fluctuations against the dollar, an acknowledgment that the country is hitching the yuan’s value closer to the U.S. currency.

China's reforms not enough to arrest mounting debt: Moody's (Reuters)

China's structural reforms will slow the pace of its debt build-up but will not be enough to arrest it, and another credit rating cut for the country is possible down the road unless it gets its ballooning credit in check, officials at Moody's said.

Wall Street to CEOs: Disrupt Your Industry, or Else (The Wall Street Journal)

Investors and boards long obsessed with quarterly profits are now hunting for leaders to make big, fast bets to fend off upstarts shooting for the moon.

Traders can make a killing chasing the 'smart money' (Business Insider)

To profit from the stock market, be sure to follow the "smart money." Just figure out where hedge funds are investing, and then do the same.

It's a strategy that would have worked this year if executed properly, as the stocks most widely held by hedge funds have outperformed the broader market.

China's teapot refiners set to slow crude imports as tanks overflow (Reuters)

As OPEC extends production cuts in a bid to tighten the oil market, China's independent refiners – awash with crude and facing disappointing local demand – are poised to slow purchases of oil for at least the next two months.

When Something is Obvious

One of the best descriptions of how intelligent investors behave comes from The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, which was written by John Maynard Keynes. In 1936, he said:

“Professional investment may be likened to those newspaper competitions in which the competitors have to pick out the six prettiest faces from a hundred photographs, the prize being awarded to the competitor whose choice most nearly corresponds to the average preferences of the competitors as a whole; so that each competitor has to pick, not those faces which he himself finds prettiest, but those which he thinks likeliest ...

By Investors Unite. Originally published at ValueWalk.

Key senators and the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) want smaller lenders to believe big banks have their back on plans to overhaul of housing finance policy, specifically Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but a panel of smaller players expressed ample skepticism at a Senate Banking Committee hearing on July 20.

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Nears All-Time High on Spike Above Daily Chart Downchannel Resistance

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) crushed shorts yesterday, smashing above the daily chart's downchannel resistance and soaring towards the all-time high around 3000. With yesterday's massive rally, the negative weekly MACD crossover has been proved a false signal.  Odds are quite good that a sustainable longer term BTC/USD bottom was found last week, especially with ETH/USD also strongly rebounding this past week.  Some consolidation can be expected today with daily RSI and Stochastics tiring, although with daily MACD just having positive...

Small Caps Breakout

Courtesy of Declan.

It has taken a few days for Small Caps to make their move but today was the day the Russell 2000 joined other indices in mounting a breakout. It was a clean breakout supported by positive technical strength - putting to bed the June 'bull trap'. Watch for the second round of stop-whips with an intraday move (and recovery) below 1,430.


Other indices added to their breakouts. The S&P gapped and pushed on, backed by higher volume accumulation. Watch for a tag of upper channel resistance.

This would be excellent news for AAPL and GOOG to a lesser extent although not inconsequential:

The App Economy Will Be Worth $6 Trillion in Five Years 

In five years, the app economy will be worth $6.3 trillion, up from $1.3 trillion last year, according to a report released today by app measurement company App Annie. What explains the growth? More people are spending more time and -- crucially -- more money in apps. While on average people aren't downloading many more apps, App Annie expects global app usership to nearly double to 6.3 billion people in the next five years while the time spent in apps will more than double.
