    * Released overnight, a -17.3% decline in Singapore non-oil exports highlighted the damaging impact of global trade tensions.

    * WTI crude dives near 3%, after Pompeo indicated that Iran is willing to negotiate on missiles. Oil prices are now trading at USD 57.69 per barrel, on yesterday’s indications that US-Iran tensions could be easing.

    Charts of the Day



    Technician’s Corner

    * USOIL: WTI crude has fallen 3% on the session following comments from US Secretary of State Pompeo in a cabinet meeting, who said for the first time, Iran is prepared to negotiate on its missile program. This news may signal a shift of policy in Iran, perhaps set to lower geopolitical tensions in the Mideast. The WTI contract has fallen from earlier highs just over $60.00 to $57.06 lows. Support now holds at $57.30 and $56.30. Resistance is set at $58.07 and $58.75.

    Main Macro Events Today

    * Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – May CPI came in on the nose at 2.0% y/y, ebbing from 2.1% y/y in April and marking a return to the upper bound of the BoE’s target. Next week’s reading for June is expected to remain unchanged. The same stands for core CPI.

    * Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI for June is expected to hold steady at 0.3% m/m, with the headline inflation at 1.2% y/y unchanged from the previous month. Still, as the weakness in manufacturing is now starting to reach the labour market, this means the prospect that underlying inflation pressures will build up soon look slim. This will keep the ECB on course for additional easing measures, unless there are major breakthroughs on the US-Sino trade and the Brexit front.

    * Consumer Price Index and Core (CAD, GMT 12:30) – CPI is expected to decline at a 2.1% y/y pace in June.

    * Housing Data (USD, GMT 12:30) – Housing starts should slow to a 1.260 mln pace in June, after a dip to 1.269 mln in May. Permits are expected to improve to 1.300 mln in June, after rising to 1.299 mln in May. Overall, we see a stronger trajectory for starts with a positive but slower pace for permits, as starts play catch-up with the higher permits trajectory.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 18th July 2019.




    FX News Today

    * Bonds were supported by ongoing trade concerns, with the tensions between Japan and South Korea add to the lingering concerns about US-Sino relations.

    * A WSJ report suggesting that trade negotiations between the US and China are at a “standstill.” This was followed by fresh evidence of the impact that trade tensions have been having, with Japanese trade data revealing a worse-than-expected 6.7% y/y contraction in exports, which have shrank for seven straight months now.

    * South Korea’s central bank unexpectedly cut interest rates and said it has room to act again.

    * The Fed’s Beige Book still said economic activity “continued to expand at a modest pace”, but globally central banks are clearly preparing for a marked slowdown as trade tensions bite.

    * Concerns about a weak earnings season are putting pressure on stock markets.

    * The USA100 futures dipped -0.6% so far after Netflix Inc posted a surprise loss of US customers.

    * The GER30 future is underperforming as well amid a broad based decline in European and US stock futures after a weak session in Asia overnight.

    * The WTI future meanwhile is trading at $56.70 per barrel.

    * Fears of a no deal Brexit scenario also continue to cloud over the outlook but while the ECB is expected to at least introduce an official easing bias next week, before cutting rates in September.

    * ECB’s Villeroy highlighted this morning that central banks can’t perform miracles and need help from politicians and fiscal policies.

    Charts of the Day



    Technician’s Corner

    * EURUSD recovered slightly from 7-session lows of 1.1200, peaking at 1.1243. Brexit concerns have weighed on economic activity on the continent as well as the UK, and could limit Euro gains going forward. Risk for the EUR comes from the ECB as well, with a shift to an explicit easing bias expected by many at next week’s meeting, or at subsequent meetings. EURUSD support comes at 1.1218-1.1229, with Resistance at the 61.8% Fib. level from 2-week peak, at 1.1250-1.1252.

    Main Macro Events Today

    * Retail Sales (USD, GMT 08:30) – A -0.3%m/m contraction is expected for June retail sales, following 0.5% May loss. In the y/y comparison, sales are anticipated at 2.6% from 2.3%.

    * Initial jobless claims (USD, GMT 12:30) – The initial jobless claims for the week of July 13 are estimated to fall to 204k, after falling to 209k in the week of July 6. Claims should average 215k in July, down from 222k in June and a 217k in May.

    * Philly Fed Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Empire State index is estimated to rebound to 6.0 in July from -8.6 in June, which marked a 33-month low for the series. The producer sentiment readings all moderated through the turn of the year from elevated levels in response to global growth concerns, falling petroleum prices, fears about the ongoing trade war, and the partial government shutdown.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd June 2019.




    * No deal Brexit risks will continue to unsettle markets next week as the two candidates hardened their rhetoric in end stages of the party elections. The ECB however will stand out as the event of the week,with Brexit uncertainty an important part of the overall outlook. Have a look at the most important events of the coming days in our usual weekly publication.

    Tuesday – 23 July 2019

    * The announcement of the next Prime Minister of the UK – Event of the week – Original Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson remains the front runner in the race and is widely expected to be confirmed as the new Prime Minister next Tuesday.

    * Housing Data (USD, GMT 14:00) – A steady rate is anticipated for existing home sales in June at the firm 5.340 mln pace seen in May. The median sales price is estimated to ease to $275,000, for a y/y gain of 0.4%, down from 4.8% in May. In Q1, we saw an average sales pace of 5.207 mln. In Q2, a better 5.297 mln pace is expected.

    Wednesday – 24 July 2019

    * Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30) – Preliminary Composite PMIs for Eurozone and Germany are expected to fall in July, to 51.8 and 52.5 respectively, while the Manufacturing PMIs are forecasted at 48.0 and 45.4 respectively.

    * Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing and Services PMIs are expected to decline in July, to 50.4 from 50.6 and 51.0 from 51.5 respectively.

    Thursday – 25 July 2019

    * German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – German IFO business confidence is expected to slip to 96.7, after it held steady the past 2 months around the 97 barrier.

    * Event of the week – Interest rate Decision and Conference (EUR, GMT 11:45) –The ECB is meeting on July 25, – shortly after the confirmation of the new PM in London and ahead of the Fed, which is widely expected to cut rates again at the end of the month. On balance, markets see more merit in keeping official rates unchanged next week, while moving to an official easing bias and promising that rates will be at “current or lower” levels well into next year.

    * ECB Monetary Policy Statement (EUR, GMT 12:30) -The July meeting will clearly be a “live” one with doves and hawks battling it out over when to deliver the now widely expected easing measures. It is expected that the majority will see more merit in keeping policy settings unchanged, but change the guidance to introduce a clear easing bias.

    * Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to rise 1.0% in June, after a -1.3% figure in May. Transportation orders should rise 2.7%. Boeing orders rose to only 9 from just zero in May, with weakness due to the hit from problems with the Boeing 737 Max that prompted buyers to delay new purchase commitments. Vehicle assemblies should ease to 11.1 mln from an 11.3 mln pace in May. Durable shipments are expected to rise 0.5%, and inventories should rise 0.6%. The I/S ratio is expected to hold steady at 1.67 since April.

    Friday – 26 July 2019

    * Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – Gross Domestic Product is expected to grow 1.8% in Q2, with a sturdy 2.4% growth rate for final sales thanks to solid growth rates of 3.9% for personal consumption and 4.3% for government purchases, alongside a big $27 bln unwind of the Q1 inventory pop.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd July 2019.




    FX News Today

    * Global stock markets have been buoyant.

    * Treasuries held modest gains to start the week, unwinding Friday’s selloff on the NY Fed’s walk back, albeit in a low volume trade.

    * Japanese bourses outperformed in thin trade, while markets in Hong Kong and mainland China struggled to make headway and China’s new Star market of tech companies fell back after the rally on the first day of trading yesterday.

    * Stock futures in the US and Europe are moving higher, led by a 0.6% rise in the GER30 future as markets hopes for at least a dovish signal from the ECB on Thursday, with some lingering hope that the central bank will already move this week.

    * A meeting between tech executives and White House officials yesterday sparked hopes of progress on Huawei, which would help to clear hurdles for fresh face to face trade talks between China and the US.

    * RBNZ has reportedly been taking a fresh look into unconventional measures and hopes of easing from not just the Fed, but also the ECB helped to underpin sentiment as did an announcement from US President Trump of a bipartisan deal to suspend the borrowing limit and boost government spending levels for two years.

    * Oil prices remain underpinned by ongoing tensions in the Middle East, leaving the WTI future trading at USD 56.31 per barrel.

    Charts of the Day



    Technician’s Corner

    * EURUSD – It descended to a 1-month low at 1.1189, driven by bearish bias for a third consecutive day. Recent tops have been limited to the 1.1280 region, and ahead of the ECB meeting on Thursday, the pairing remains in sell-the-rally mode. The Bank is expected to shift to an explicit easing bias this week, with a rate cut likely coming at the September meeting. While a Fed rate cut of 25 basis points is expected at the end of July, it has been priced into the Dollar for now. Further dovish noises from the ECB should see the Euro give way on Thursday, with the first major downside target at the June low, of 1.1159.

    * NZDUSD – The biggest mover out of the main pairings has been NZDUSD, which fell over 0.3% in hitting a six-day low at 0.6729. This came with the RBNZ reportedly taking a fresh look into unconventional monetary policy stimulus measures. Next Support holds at 200-day SMA at 0.6718, while Resistance is set at Wednesday’s high, at 0.6745.

    Main Macro Events Today

    * The announcement of the next Prime Minister of the UK – Event of the week – Original Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson remains the front runner in the race and is widely expected to be confirmed as the new Prime Minister today.

    * Housing Data (USD, GMT 14:00) – A steady rate is anticipated for existing home sales in June at the firm 5.340 mln pace seen in May.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 24th July 2019.




    FX News Today

    * In Europe, Core EGB yields declined in the PM session with Gilts outperforming Bunds after the crowning of Boris Johnson as the new leader of the UK Conservative Party.

    * Johnson is now set to be confirmed as Prime Minister tomorrow and investors are raising their no-deal Brexit bets, which is also fuelling easing expectations.

    * A weaker than expected UK CBI industrial confidence survey as well as dovish leaning comments from BoE’s Saunders underpinned the rebound in Gilts and saw the UK 10-year rate falling back -1.6 bp to 0.688%.

    * The ECB’s latest credit conditions survey also played into the hands of the doves at the council as it showed that credit conditions tightened in the second quarter.

    * Stock markets meanwhile rallied on the combination of positive earnings reports and hopes of further central bank support.

    Charts of the Day



    Technician’s Corner

    * USDJPY recovered to 1-week highs of 108.28 overnight, gaining ground from Asian lows of 107.83 but it gave back some gains today by turning back to low 108 area into London open. Overall, risk-on conditions have supported, with USDJPY advances coming on the back of rallying equities. Last week’s 108.37 is a key next resistance level, and above there, market participants could turn their attention to the 50-day MA, which currently sits at 108.50. On the flipside, on the break of 20-day MA at 108.07, next Support comes at 107.79 (June 15 low).

    * USDCAD rallied to July highs, topping at 1.3162 in early North American trade, and up from post-Monday close lows of 1.3111. General USD strength, coming as the market scales back its Fed easing expectations, has provided support to the pair. In addition, a lack of upside in WTI crude, despite geopolitical concerns, largely with Iran, has weighed on the CAD as well. The June 26 high of 1.3196 is the next resistance level if the asset moves above 1.3160, though buy-stops are expected over the 1.3200 level. On the flipside Support is set at 1.3120-1.3125 area. A move below the latter could open the doors below 1.3100 area.

    Main Macro Events Today

    * Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30) – Preliminary Composite PMIs for Eurozone and Germany are expected to fall in July, to 51.8 and 52.5 respectively, while the Manufacturing PMIs are forecasted at 48.0 and 45.4 respectively.

    * Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing and Services PMIs are expected to decline in July, to 50.4 from 50.6 and 51.0 from 51.5 respectively.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 25th July 2019.




    FX News Today

    * Treasury yields came down from overnight highs and fell back to 2.04%, unchanged from yesterday’s close.

    * Aussie and Australia’s benchmark bond yields hit record lows after RBA Governor Lowe signalled that he is prepared to cut rates again if needed and Asian stock markets moved cautiously higher.

    * Earnings reports and expectations for further central bank support have helped to underpin equity markets this week, but while markets are looking for a clear easing signal if not a cut from the ECB today, Asian equity markets moved only cautiously higher.

    * Worse than expected losses from Tesla and reports that North Korea resumed missile launches highlighted not only that geopolitical risks remain high, but also that overall valuations are already lofty.

    * US futures are mixed, with NASDAQ futures underperforming and down -0.2%.

    * USOIL spiked to $57.60 on another 10 million barrel draw-down but sank to $56 on weak global economic outlook on the back of the manufacturing PMI data.

    * Euro touched its lowest since May 31 following the weak Eurozone PMIs during the London morning session, printing 1.1127.

    * Gold continues to track sideways with Support at 1,420 and Resistance at 1427.

    Charts of the Day



    Technician’s Corner

    * EURUSD touched its lowest since May 31, following the weak Eurozone PMIs during the London morning session. Euro weakness has been a feature this week, in anticipation of ECB meeting, where a shift to an easing bias is universally anticipated. Given the weak PMIs, there is a chance the Bank may even cut rates modestly, which would likely weigh further on EURUSD. Next support comes at the June low, of 1.1159 and the 2019 low of 1.1107 seen on May 23.

    Main Macro Events Today

    * German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – German IFO business confidence is expected to slip to 96.7, after it held steady the past 2 months around the 97 barrier.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 30th July 2019.




    FX News Today

    * Treasury yields slip along with core EGBs after BoJ and looking to 25 bp Fed cut and dovish stance.

    * BoJ kept policy on hold but promised to act aggressively with additional easing measures if its policy goals are threatened.

    * European stock futures are marginally higher, alongside gains in US futures after a largely positive session for stocks in Asia.

    * US-Sino trade talks resume today.

    * In Europe, a no-deal Brexit scenario is looking increasingly certain as the new PM in London steps up the hostile rhetoric and focuses on selling no-deal at home, while showing no interest in re-opening the lines of communication with Brussels.

    * GBP losses accelerated on no-deal Brexit risk; hit major trend lows vs USD and others.

    * The WTI future lifted to USD 57.20 per barrel.

    * German GfK consumer confidence fell back to 9.7 in the advance August reading. With no improvement in manufacturing the improvements on the German labour market are running out of steam and ultimately that will also impact consumption going down the line.

    Charts of the Day



    Technician’s Corner

    * USDJPY: The Yen has firmed moderately in the wake of the BoJ policy announcement. Market narratives have mostly taken the view that the central bank was a little less dovish than expected, especially with both the Fed and ECB heading to rate cuts. USDJPY drifted to near 108.50 from a 3-week high that was seen ahead of the data, following disappointing industrial production figures out of Japan, at 108.94. EURJPY and other Yen crosses saw a similar fall-from-highs price action. The BoJ kept its short-term interest rate target at -0.1% and its pledge to guide 10-year JGB yields around 0% while maintaining its asset buying programme. The central bank signalled its commitment to keep interest rates at current levels “for an extended period of time, at least through around spring 2020,” commenting that “the momentum for achieving 2% inflation is sustained, but lacks strength.” The forward guidance was pretty much unchanged from existing guidance, which seemed to cause a modicum of disappointment in forex markets, though JGB yields still dipped while the JPN225 closed with a 0.4% gain on the day. Overall, the balance of risks for USDJPY and EURJPY seem to the downside, with both the Fed and ECB having much more room to add monetary stimulus than in the case of the BoJ.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 5th August 2019.




    * Following the FOMC meeting last week, two interest rate decisions (RBA and RBNZ) are scheduled next week. An on-hold stance is expected from RBA and more easing by RBNZ. From an economic perspective, GDP releases are the highlights, while with the focus on geopolitical trade tensions, data releases are likely to be overlooked.

    Monday – 05 August 2019

    * Services PMI (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The UK Services PMI is expected to stay unchanged at 50.2, a three-month low and drop from May’s 51.0 reading.The indicator effectively signals stagnation, with the sector only expanding fractionally, and at risk of tipping into recession; a consequence of both Brexit-related uncertainty and geopolitical trade tensions.

    * Non-Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The US Non-Manufacturing PMI is expected to rise to 55.5 in July from 55.1 in June and a 19-month low of 56.1 in March, versus a 13-year high of 60.8 in September. The available July sentiment surveys have partly reversed the June downdraft in sentiment, though we’ve seen divergent swings for some measures.

    Tuesday – 06 August 2019

    * Interest Rate Decision and Statement (AUD, GMT 04:30) – Reserve Bank of Australia is expected to keep rates unchanged at 1.00% (June and July saw the first back-to-back rate trimming since 2012). The latest data has strengthened the view that the RBA, after implementing back-to-back rate cuts, will be on hold for the foreseeable, albeit retaining a dovish policy stance.

    * JOLTS Job Openings (USD, GMT 14:00) – JOLTS define Job Openings as all positions that have not been filled on the last business day of the month. June’s JOLTS job openings is expected to fall slightly at 7.268M, following the 7.32M in May.

    Wednesday – 07 August 2019

    * Interest Rate Decision and Press Conference (NZD, GMT 02:00-03:00) – The Reserve Bank of New Zealand is expected to proceed with a second rate cut this year. The consensus presents a 25bp rate cut.

    * Ivey PMI (CAD, GMT 14:00) – A survey of purchasing managers, the Index provides an overview of the state of business conditions in the country. Canada’s July Ivey PMI is expected to improve 2.6 points to 55.00 after the decline seen in June. The data is supportive of the steady policy story, as the economy returns to potential growth contrasts with an outlook “clouded by persistent trade tensions.”

    Thursday – 08 August 2019

    * Gross Domestic Product (JPY, GMT 23:50) – Growth in Japan is expected to have decreased by 0.5% in the second quarter from the 0.6% in the first quarter, reflecting weaker exports due to cooling global demand and trade tensions.

    Friday – 09 August 2019

    * Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The GDP for the second quarter could be seen declining due to the renewed rise in no-deal Brexit risks which negatively impacted data releases, and the slump in the June manufacturing PMI which highlights the extent of the deterioration in sentiment. The preliminary release of UK Q2 GDP growth is expected at the 1.4% y/y figure from the 1.8%seen in the last quarter.

    * Employment Change (CAD , GMT 12:30) – Employment change is seen spiking to 10.0k in the number of employed people in July, compared to the decline 2.2k in June. The unemployment rate is expected to remain at 5.5%. A possible lack in total jobs during July is unlikely to challenge the BoC’s steady-as-it-goes policy position.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 6th August 2019.




    FX News Today

    * RBNZ surprises markets with hefty 50 bps cut; official rate now at 1.00%.

    * India’s RBI cut rates by 35 bps – more than expected; repo rate at 5.4%.

    * Decisive action from central banks in New Zealand and India also fueled fresh speculation of deep cuts from the likes of Fed and ECB.

    * New Zealand’s 10-year rate led a broad slide in yields across Asia.
    The RBNZ surprised markets with a hefty 50 bp cut that left the official cash rate at a record low of 1.00% and will spark fresh speculation of deep cuts world-wide.

    * The NZD dropped sharply as a result and AUD was also dragged lower as the 10-year rate dropped -8.3 bp, with traders expecting the RBA to follow.

    * Still, pressure eased somewhat in stock markets, after China took steps to steady the Yuan yesterday.

    * JPN225 is down -0.27%.

    * US futures are in the red after a positive close on Wall Street yesterday and the WTI future is trading at just USD 53.66 per barrel.

    * In Europe, German production numbers at the start of the session underpinned easing hopes.

    * German industrial production slumped -1.5% m/m in June, with the May reading revised down to just 0.1% m/m.

    * The German curve has already settled below zero and pressure on Draghi to not just cut rates but restart asset purchases is mounting.

    Charts of the Day



    Technician’s Corner

    * NZDUSD: The New Zealand Dollar over 2% in hitting its lowest level against the US Dollar since January 2016, at 0.6377, and trading at near seven-year lows in the case against the Yen. This followed a more aggressive than expected 50 bp rate cut by the RBNZ to an all-time low 1.00%, which was pinned on flagging growth conditions as a consequence of simmering trade tensions and a global economic slowdown.

    * AUDUSD fell in sympathy, with the RBA, after cutting rates in June and July, having signalled yesterday that more rate cuts could be in the pipeline. The pair smashed through the early January flash-crash low on route to printing a 10-year nadir at 0.6677. AUDJPY also dove into 10-year low territory.

    * USDJPY: The Yen lifted against the Dollar and Euro, though remained below highs seen earlier in the week. USDJPY posted a low at 105.93, extending the retreat from yesterday’s 107.09 high.

    * EURUSD continued to orbit the 1.1200 level. Sterling came back under pressure after a positional-driven rally earlier in the week. Cable nudged back under 1.2150 after failing to sustain gains above 1.2200, while EURGBP lifted back above 0.9200, drawing back in on the 24-month high at 0.9249.
