    Oil: Stuck around $40 with nowhere to go


    [​IMG]





    Later today, OPEC+ is set for a meeting to evaluate the state of the global market. And the outlook isn’t particularly inspiring for Oil bulls.

    Since bouncing out from under the $20/bbl in April, Brent Oil’s recovery has plateaued, even as it keeps its head above the psychologically-important $40/bbl line. Still, the MACD clearly points to waning momentum, with Oil prices having stuck to a sideways range since September. The FXTM Trader's Sentiments also appears rather evenly split, with 52 percent net long on this asset.

    [​IMG]



    Likewise, Crude oil prices are seeing similar fortunes, drifting sideways, even as it consolidates around its 50-day simple moving average. Although the International Energy Agency estimates that the demand for oil worldwide has been restored to 94 percent of pre-pandemic levels, markets are clearly not convinced.

    [​IMG]

    Recall back in April, OPEC and its allies had agreed to aggressively lower their collective output in order to rebalance global markets. From the 9.7 million barrels per day (bpd) that were removed starting May, those production cuts were set to be eased by about 3.9 million bpd at the start of 2021, which is in just 74 days. Their initial hopes that global demand would’ve recovered sufficiently by now to warrant restoring more Oil supply into the world has clearly been decimated by the pandemic’s refusal to go quietly into the night.

    As the OPEC+ Joint Ministerial Monitoring Committee meet on Monday, the alliance will be under pressure to delay their supply ramp-up, given how the global economy is still faltering in its post-pandemic recovery. The total number of Covid-19 cases is nearing the 40 million mark, and major Western economies are still, till this day, battling the coronavirus’s spread within their own borders. While eschewing the nationwide lockdowns that were commonplace during the first half of the year, more targeted restrictions still impede economic activity. With schools shut, work-from-home orders in place, and little allowance for social activities, such measures erode the world’s demand for Oil. Such persistent demand-side concerns ensure that the upside for Oil prices remain capped for the time being.

    At least China is a bright spark in the global economy. The world’s second largest economy grew by 4.9 percent in Q3, while its industrial production and retail sales for September exceeded market expectations. During its Golden Week holidays earlier this month, that were about 425 million trips made across China within a four-day period. However, more major economies need to follow China’s lead and keep the coronavirus in check, before Oil prices can see a sustainable lift.

    Although no decision is expected out of OPEC+ until December 1, the signs are already there that this alliance of major Oil producers may have to keep their output levels suppressed for longer if they are to retain hope that prices can climb higher from current levels. Until there is a vaccine that can help speed up the global economic recovery, perhaps Oil bulls would be content sitting off to the sidelines in the interim.

    New record high for FXTM Social Media Index


    [​IMG]



    Amid the ongoing US election uncertainty, investors stuck to a tried-and-tested play during this pandemic era. With neither Joe Biden nor President Donald Trump having yet attained the 270 electorate votes needed to claim an outright win, market participants flocked to US tech counters once more.


    [​IMG]

    This market action helped propel the FXTM Social Media Index to a new record high, after posting a 6.3 percent gain on Wednesday. That bested the Nasdaq 100’s 4.4 percent advance and the S&P 500’s 2.2 percent climb for the day. The FXTM Social Media Index’s record-setting performance was enabled by the stellar gains in its constituents:

    And with Nasdaq futures edging into the green at the time of writing, that could translate into further gains for the FXTM Social Media index on Thursday as well.

    Big Tech rejoices at divided US government

    Investors continue to be gripped by the latest developments surrounding the US presidential elections, with former vice-president Joe Biden appearing closest to snatching victory. Having just won Michigan and Wisconsin, he is now estimated to be just six electoral votes short of the winning 270.

    Yet, as noted within hours after the polls closed, the expected “blue wave” had evaporated. This sets up a challenging path for any new policies to be pushed through the chambers of the US government. A Biden administration, if he does indeed clinch victory, would be met with stiff opposition from a Republican-controlled Senate. In such a scenario, the heightened regulatory pressures that Democrats wish to impose on Big Tech (including Google, Facebook, Twitter) would first have to overcome stern opposition from across the political divide. As investors did the math as to who will occupy Capitol Hill over the coming years, tech stocks were able to punch higher at the thought that further scrutiny by lawmakers may be blunted by a divided US government.

    At the same time, tech megacaps are set to enjoy pandemic-related tailwinds for a while more. With the US registering 100,000 cases in a single day, physical economic activities are not expected to be restored to pre-pandemic levels anytime soon, which should ensure heightened reliance on tech.

    Standby by tumultuous Thursday?

    Still, we must stop ourselves from getting carried away; the 2020 US presidential elections has not yet reached a conclusive end. Should President Trump’s legal onslaught gain traction and manage to put any state’s electoral votes into doubt, having already launched lawsuits in three different states, that may still spark a bout of risk aversion and prompt global equities to unwind some of the gains in the week so far.

    Beyond the US elections, the Federal Reserve is due to make a policy decision later today, although the FOMC is expected to leave its policy settings unchanged. The weekly US jobless claims is expected to show stubbornly elevated levels of over 700,000 Americans claiming unemployment benefits for the week.

    Still, barring any shocks out of the Fed or the US economic data releases, the latest developments pertaining to the presidential race are expected to hold court over global market sentiment as investors keenly await the declaration of the official winner.

    Technical outlook: Gold tumbles to 4-month low


    [​IMG]



    After being trapped within a wide range for many weeks, Gold has finally broken below the stubborn $1850 support level.

    [​IMG]

    The primary culprits behind Gold’s sharp decline revolved around the better-than-expected U.S business activity data and rising optimism over the progress in a Covid-19 vaccine. Appetite towards the safe-haven asset took another hit amid the triggering of a formal transition process to President-elect Joe Biden. With Biden set to nominate former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen to become the next Treasury secretary, this may boost the prospects for further fiscal and monetary stimulus given her reputation as a dove. Such a move has been welcomed by investors, with the risk-on sentiment further pressuring Gold which has weakened over 2% since the start of the week.

    Now that Gold bears have awoken from hibernation and broken below the $1850 support level, the path of least resistance for the precious metal points south. Given how the MACD trades to the downside and the death cross technical formation – (where the 50-day simple moving average crosses below the 100-day simple moving average) is in play, bears are currently in the driving seat. Sustained weakness below the $1850 support may open the doors towards $1815 level and the psychological $1800 level above the 200-day simple moving average.

    [​IMG]

    Zooming out to the weekly timeframe, a solid close below the $1850 could signal the start of a bearish trend. Prices are already trading below the 20 SMA while the MACD is displaying early signs of crossing to the downside. Should bears keep prices below $1850 this week, previous support could transform into a dynamic resistance that encourages a decline towards $1800 and $1760.

    [​IMG]

    For those who are focusing on the shorter timeframes, there are some interesting developments on the hourly charts. An intraday rebound towards the $1840 level could be on the cards. Should this level prove to be reliable resistance, prices may decline back towards the $1820 level. If the risk-on mood further dampens appetite for the safe-haven asset, prices may break below $1820 with the psychological $1800 a key point of interest.

    [​IMG]

    Back to the fundamentals…

    While the positive vaccine news is set to impact Gold in the near term, the medium to longer term outlook may be influenced by lower interest rates and possible rise in inflation. Given how the Federal Reserve is expected to leave interest rates unchanged until at least 2023, the central bank could expand its QE program to support the US economy. Such may weaken the Dollar – essentially providing support to Gold.

    Risk-On Train Gathers Momentum


    [​IMG]




    Risk-on remains the name of the game as investors across the globe soak up all the good news!

    A raft of positive vaccine developments, better-than-expected U.S economic data and much-needed clarity on the formal transition of leadership to president-elect Joe Biden have elevated investor sentiment. The current mood across markets is so positive that global equities are on course for their best month on record with the Dow Jones Industrial Average breaking through 30,000 for the first time.

    It did not end here. The S&P 500 recorded a record close, rising 1.6% to 3,635.41 while the Nasdaq Composite added 1.3% to finish its trading day at 12,036.79. Stocks in Asia jumped on Wednesday amid the risk-on mood and this infectious optimism may support European markets later in the morning.

    [​IMG]

    With global equities bulls dominating the scene and all the encouraging news stimulating appetite for riskier assets, what could possibly go wrong as 2020 slowly comes to end? Well…surging coronavirus cases across Europe and the United States remain key themes that continue to strain risk sentiment. In the United States, Democrats and Republicans have been at a stalemate for months over a new stimulus package - this could rollover into 2021. While markets may push higher in the short term, the medium to longer-term outlook remains clouded by COVID-19 & U.S. stimulus stalemate.

    Enough of the fundamentals, it's time for some technicals and potential trading setups.

    Dollar Index wobbles above 92.00.

    The title says it all. There is no love for the Dollar thanks to the improving market mood. A solid daily close below 92.00 could open the doors towards 90.

    [​IMG]

    EURUSD presses against 1.1900

    The EURUSD is trading marginally below the 1.1900 resistance level. A solid breakout above this point may spark a move towards the 1.2000 support level.

    [​IMG]

    GBPUSD firmly bullish above 1.3300

    Pound bulls remain in control above the 1.3300 support level. A solid breakout above 1.3400 could open the doors towards 1.3482.

    [​IMG]

    Gold crashes into $1800 support

    After many weeks of trading within a wide range, Gold has broken below the $1850 support level. Prices are heavily bearish with all eyes on the psychological $1800 level. A solid breakdown below this point could trigger a selloff towards $1760. If $1800 proves to be reliable support, prices are likely to rebound towards $1815 and $1850.

    [​IMG]

    S&P 500 bulls in the driving seat

    The S&P 500 has scope to push higher if the 3550 higher low proves to be a reliable support level. Prices are trading above the 20 SMA while the MACD trades to the upside. It will be interesting to see whether the Index will hit a fresh all-time high.

    [​IMG]

    Bitcoin tops $19,000

    Who let the Bitcoin bulls out? The cryptocurrency has risen above $19,000 for the first time in nearly three years! This is less than $1000 away from its all-time high. Given how prices were trading below $5,000 as recently as March, bulls deserve a pat on the back. A solid weekly close above $19,000 could open the doors back to all-time highs.

    Vaccine rally cools as markets look to economic data


    [​IMG]




    Global equity markets have had a remarkable rally in November with three promising coronavirus vaccines due to see the light. US equities reached new highs on Tuesday with the Dow Jones Industrial Average breaching 30,000 for the first time, having added 12.7% month-to-date. The UK’s FTSE 100 performed even better with gains of 14.6% as many of its components benefit from a global recovery. Meanwhile, in Japan the Nikkei index hit a fresh 29-year high.

    The global rally seems to have paused for now, following a modest decline of 173 points in the Dow Jones Industrial Average and 0.16% retreat in the S&P 500. The fall was driven by the sectors which have benefited the most from the vaccine news, such as Energy, Basic Materials, Industrials and Financials. However, the Nasdaq Composite ended Wednesday up 0.47% as investors flocked back to the big Tech names.

    Markets seem to be repeating the cycle of the past two weeks. Vaccine news gets released on a Monday and pushes cyclical stocks sharply higher, while growth stocks get dumped. We then see a reversal in positioning in the latter part of the week. While the release of vaccine results is promising, we do not know yet when this pandemic will be completely over and that is what investors will continue to struggle with. Wednesday’s economic data showed that US jobless claims increased for a second consecutive week suggesting more pain ahead as business restrictions and partial lockdowns continue to hurt employment. Consumer spending remains a bright spot having increased 0.5% in October, but given the 0.7% decline in personal income, there is a high chance that these numbers soften in the final two months of the year.

    Minutes from the FOMC’s most recent meeting earlier this month indicated that monetary policy is likely to remain accommodative and officials will provide further guidance on bond buying. The central bank is not expected to take any steps to upset the market, and it’s evident that we’ll continue to live with a low rate environment for a couple of years. However, the economy is now in need of a fiscal boost and not a monetary one. The faster the US government acts, the more jobs it will preserve and the faster activity can return to pre-Covid era levels. Time seems to be running short to pass a bill before year-end, but that is increasingly necessary in order to prevent further shocks to the economy and hence markets.

    Risk sentiment on thinning ice


    [​IMG] \





    Asian stocks are mixed while US and European equity futures are slightly lower, as risk appetite attempts to overcome concerns over the efficacy of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine. Investor confidence had been shaken after learning about the manufacturing error in the drugmaker’s vaccine trials, prompting Thursday declines in European equities, Oil prices, and even Bitcoin.

    Since the US elections, traders had been pricing in a picture-perfect post-vaccine world. The positive developments surrounding the three leading vaccine candidates formed a metaphorical three-legged stool, on which risk appetite rested upon. Now that one of those legs is showing signs of coming loose, given the unsettling AstraZeneca revelations, that has triggered a wobble in risk assets.

    The market reaction of late underscores how sensitive investors sentiment is to developments surrounding the Covid-19 vaccine. Positive developments this month have translated into eye-popping gains in beaten-down sectors such as energy, financials, and even mall-based retailers, while the Dow Jones index posted a new record high. From such giddy heights, any dent to that rosey post-pandemic outlook has the potential to trigger risk-aversion, as was clearly the case in the latter part of the week.

    Still, investors are hoping that the promise of a Covid-19 vaccine will come good, with the US Food and Drug Administration set to convene on December 10th to discuss the emergency use application for Pfizer and BioNTech’s vaccine. As long as those approvals happen without a hitch, that should ensure a supportive environment for risk assets to climb higher going into 2021, with the global rollout of the vaccine set to bring the world closer to pre-pandemic life.

    Gold bulls waiting to catch a break

    In the meantime, Gold prices have continued to struggled under the weight of the risk-on sentiment evident for much of November, with the top Bullion ETF set to record its highest monthly outflow since 2017. The climb in US Treasury yields since August, coupled with the Dollar index’s refusal to capitulate below the 92 psychological level, have also contributed to the 12 percent decline from Gold’s record high.

    Traders will be closely monitoring how reliably spot Gold’s 200-day simple moving average can perform its role as a crucial support level. It remains to be seen whether Gold bulls can gather enough mass to keep prices supported, as they continue pinning their hopes on an overshoot in US inflationary pressures, aided by fresh rounds of fiscal and monetary stimulus. The relenting of such expectations en masse could then translate into a sustained presence below $1800, as investors rotate out of the precious metal into other asset classes that are currently in vogue, such as equities.

    Oil awaits crucial OPEC+ supply decision

    Oil prices are paring Thursday’s losses, as investors hold on to expectations that next week’s OPEC+ meeting will result in pushing back plans to ease their supply cuts by three months, despite signs of tensions within the group of major Oil producers. Both Brent and WTI futures are still on course for a fourth consecutive weekly gain, ahead of the crucial OPEC+ decision due next week.

    Should OPEC+ press ahead with bringing 1.9 million barrels a day back into global markets in January as intended, that would deal a nasty shock to Brent Oil and bring the benchmark back down closer to the $40/bbl mark. A shorter delay of less than three months could also prompt Oil to unwind some of its November gains. Still, Oil prices should enjoy enough support from the optimism surrounding the Covid-19 vaccine, provided that too isn’t derailed.

    U.K. approves Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine


    [​IMG]



    The United Kingdom has become the first country in the world to approve the Pfizer/BioNtech Covid-19 vaccine!

    This emergency authorization marks a historic moment and clears the way for the deployment of a vaccine that is expected to play a critical role in halting the coronavirus outbreak. Given how the vaccine will be available in Britain from next week, this opens the way for mass immunisation and raises the prospects of the European Union and the United States making a similar move.

    Such encouraging news is poised to elevate global risk sentiment as investors become increasingly optimistic over the vaccine speeding up the pace of economic recovery. Equity bulls may be injected with a renewed sense of confidence amid the good news while safe-havens like the Dollar, Japanese Yen and Gold are positioned to weaken.

    Battered Dollar gets no love

    The Dollar descended deeper into the abyss on Tuesday evening as cautious optimism that the United States will revive stimulus talks fuelled risk appetite. News that the United Kingdom has approved Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine weakened the currency further.

    Over the past few weeks, there was no love for the Dollar thanks to positive vaccine news, mixed economic data and surging coronavirus cases in the United States. The latest developments regarding U.S Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi holding fresh stimulus talks have offered some light at the end of the long tunnel. However, markets remain skeptical whether these talks will open the doors to more stimulus, since investors were already left empty handed before the presidential election. Nevertheless, the idea of the United States unleashing further stimulus in 2021 to support the economy has dragged the Dollar Index (DXY) to levels not seen since late April 2018.

    [​IMG]

    The outlook for the Dollar Index remains bearish as the fundamentals and technical align. After experiencing its worst month in November since July, the Dollar has entered December under intense pressure. Looking at the technical picture, prices have tumbled roughly 0.7% since the start of December and almost 3% this quarter. The DXY is trading around 91.19 as of writing with bears eyeing the 91.00 support level. A solid breakdown below this point could open a path towards 90.00. Alternatively, prices may experience a technical bounce back towards the 92.00 resistance before bears jump back into the game. This bearish setup becomes invalidated once a weekly close above 92.00 is achieved.

    [​IMG]

    EURUSD blasts above 1.2000

    In our FX Week Ahead report on Monday, we discussed the possibility of the EURUSD breaking above the 1.2000 psychological resistance level.

    The solid breakout and daily close above this key resistance are likely to signal a move towards levels not seen since April 2018 above 1.2150. Should Dollar weakness remain a key theme in December, this may inject Euro bulls with enough inspiration to challenge prices beyond 1.2150. Although the outlook points north, a move back below 1.2000 could signal a decline back towards 1.1900.

    [​IMG]

    GBPUSD secures daily close above 1.3400

    It’s not only the Euro that has welcomed a weaker Dollar. The GBPUSD jumped over 100 pips on Tuesday to close above 1.3400. While prices could push higher in the near term, the medium to longer term outlook remains heavily influenced by Brexit. As the clock ticks closer to the official Brexit transition deadline on the 31st of December, the GBPUSD is likely to turn volatile and sensitive. Focusing on the near-term outlook, the upside momentum may drive prices towards 1.3520

    [​IMG]

    AUDUSD find support above 0.7340

    Expect the AUDUSD to push higher if the Dollar continues to weaken. Such a development could open the doors towards 0.7413.

    Should 0.7340 prove to be unreliable support, the AUDUSD may decline back towards 0.7250.

    OPEC+ to re-attempt breaking deadlock today



    [​IMG]




    Oil prices are keeping the faith that OPEC+ will come good on staving its supplies from global markets, even as the alliance tries to keep it together amid an internal squabble.

    A confluence of factors between the anticipation for an OPEC+ delay to its supply restoration plans and optimism over the global economic recovery, are stacked against the lingering dampeners of the pandemic, keeping Oil prices hovering around their highest levels since April, despite the recent dip.

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Recall that OPEC+ was slated for a meeting earlier this week to decide on the timing of its next output hike. That meeting failed to produce any conclusive outcome, and talks are set to resume later today.

    Here’s a quick recap on the key phases of the OPEC+ supply response to the global pandemic so far:

    • May: OPEC+ reduced output by 9.7 million barrels per day (bpd), as the pandemic wrought havoc on global demand.
    • August: The output cuts were scaled back to 7.7 million bpd, amid signs that the worst of the pandemic was over.
    As things stand, OPEC+ is slated to ease up on its production cuts by another 1.9 million barrels per day, starting January.

    Brittle recovery fuels OPEC+ conundrum


    There are concerns that Oil prices can’t be sustained at current levels without OPEC+ holding back on its existing plans to restore more supplies next month. This is due to the notion that the overall health of global demand is still too fragile going into 2021.

    Consider the figures out of the air travel industry.

    Airlines in the US have slashed their January schedules by a daily average of nearly 4,000 flights, while Europe is expected to see a 50-60 percent drop in flights over the first two months of 2021. Such forecasts show that demand will need more time to recover, even as the US has just witnessed its deadliest day ever from Covid-19, while Germany and Italy have either extended or tightened their respective lockdowns. These major economies likely have to battle the effects of the coronavirus for some time more, even with a vaccine.

    In contrast, China, the world’s largest oil importer, remains a bright spark! 11,700 domestic flights took place in China on 1 December alone, while inner city traffic is also close to pre-pandemic levels. Keep in mind that most of OPEC's Oil goes to Asia.

    Such uneven figures are giving some OPEC+ members pause about restoring too much supply too soon. Other members are raring to pump out more so as to generate income for their fiscal coffers.

    Oil-related stocks also hanging on to OPEC+ decision

    The uncertainty isn’t just seizing up benchmark Oil prices, but also keeping the stocks of Oil companies in limbo. Consider BP’s stunning 26.36 percent gain in November, as the company’s stock rose in tandem with the 24.69 percent climb in Brent futures last month.

    [​IMG]

    Such gains would only hold up if OPEC+ can overcome their differences and deliver the outcome that markets are expecting. Otherwise, markets could be in for a nasty shock.

    Can Carnival’s share price cruise to a new 2021 high?


    [​IMG]




    Carnival Corporation is set to unveil its latest quarterly earnings on Wednesday, 7 April.

    The cruise operator’s financial results for the three months ending 28 February are set to bear the deep scars inflicted by the global pandemic. Yet investors have been willing to pay scant attention to such backward-looking figures. Instead, they have been looking forward to the day when Carnival’s cruise ships will set sail once more, filled with holiday goers who are eager (and also hopefully vaccinated) for a break from the lockdowns around the world.

    Such hopes have catapulted the stock higher by almost 260% since 2 April 2020!

    [​IMG]



    Carnival’s stock price still a long way from pre-pandemic levels

    Following an 85% plunge between 17 January until 2 April last year, Carnival’s stock ended up sinking below the $8.00 mark to hit its lowest levels since 1993. Despite the stunning recovery in the 12 months since, the stock currently remains about 45% lower from its pre-pandemic high, when it breached the $50 mark in January 2020.

    From a technical perspective, Carnival’s stock recently enjoyed support at its 50-day simple moving average. And with its MACD momentum poised to break above its signal line, coupled with the fact that its 14-day relative strength index has yet to reach technically overbought levels, the stock appears on the cusp of exploring more of its upside.

    Although there is still a notable distance between its current share price from pre-pandemic levels, such a gap also signals the potential upside for Carnival’s stock, as its business eventually is restored.

    How might Carnival’s share price perform today?

    Market participants are poised to react to any commentary or details today about when more of Carnival’s cruises can resume. Any developments related to advanced bookings and pricing could reveal a lot about the pent-up demand for the company’s products and offerings.

    Markets are pricing in a 5.56% move, either upwards or downwards, when Carnival releases its fiscal Q1 earnings. Note that this stock is now 4% away from this year’s highest closing price, set on 15 March.

    Carnival’s share prices registered gains after 4 out of the past 5 quarterly earnings announcements. Despite some negative surprises in the hard numbers, clearly many investors and traders had little qualms getting on board with this stock, pushing it higher by 32% already so far this year.

    Still, going into the earnings announcement, at least 5% of Carnival’s shares are being shorted.

    What are the market expectations for Carnival’s fiscal Q1 earnings?

    Wall Street predicts that Carnival’s latest quarterly revenue would come in at $66.9 million, and an adjusted loss per share of $1.68 for the period.

    For Carnival’s bottom line, Wall Street is forecasting a net loss of $1.74 billion in this latest financial quarter, which would mark a fifth consecutive fiscal quarter of net losses for the cruise operator. No surprise also that its top line has been wiped out by Covid-19, dwindling to a mere pittance versus the average $5.1 billion in quarterly revenue it used to rake in since December 2018 until the pandemic struck.

    It is also estimated that Carnival had to burn through $600 million per month between December 2020 and February 2021 in trying to keep its business afloat. Carnival’s decision to get rid of 19 ships off its books did help pad up its cash buffers, adding to the billions raised via sales of bonds and common shares.

    Is the tide turning?

    However, Carnival’s fortunes are set to reverse course in the coming months.

    • Mid-summer 2021: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said yesterday that US cruises may recommence in a few months, as Carnival threatened to relocate its ships away from US ports.
    • May 2021: Carnival’s Italian outfit, Costa Cruises, will sail guests to various locations around Italy, Greece, and Croatia, with later visits to France and Spain starting mid-June.
    • July 2021: Carnival’s ultra-luxury cruise line, Seabourn, has been approved by the Government of Greece to relaunch its voyages in the Mediterranean.
    As the Covid-19 vaccine continues making its way throughout the globe, allowing for leisurely travel to resume, that should in turn bolster Carnival’s business and stock prospects.

    The question now is whether this party is just getting started and the stock can climb much higher, or has this ship already sailed?

    Much rests on what Carnival’s management conveys today, and how well they can dispel the lingering uncertainties surrounding its business outlook. Carnival’s commentary today could potentially signal the next wave of either buying or selling of this stock, even as most of its fleet remains docked for now.
