    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 8th August 2019.




    FX News Today

    * Markets remained choppy Wednesday amid heightened fears over the bearish signals from the drop in rates.

    * Better than expected China trade numbers, which showed a rebound in exports helped to underpin sentiment after a slightly higher than anticipated Yuan fixing.

    * Fears about the impact of the escalating trade conflict eased somewhat, also helped by news that Japan will allow some exports of semiconductor manufacturing material to South Korea, which suggests easing tensions between the two countries.

    * Wall Street losses were pared and the NASDAQ recovered into the green. US futures are up 0.4-0.7%.

    * Investors remain jumpy and markets volatile, however, while the inversion of the yield curve looks worrying and highlights the rise in recession fears.

    * Oil remains sharply weaker on growth fears and widening supply-demand dynamics. It is currently trading at $52.70.

    * The official fixing of the onshore Yuan today was at a new 10-year plus low against the Dollar.

    * RBNZ Governor Orr also repeated that negative rates are a possibility, which comes a day after the central bank caught widespread attention by implementing its first 50 bp easing since the immediate aftermath of 9/11.

    Technician’s Corner

    * YEN: The Yen has traded softer, concurrently with a tentative rebound in stock markets, which was seen on Wall Street into the close yesterday, and followed up with gains across Asia-Pacific bourses. USDJPY settled in the lower 106.00s, above the 7-month low seen yesterday at 105.49. AUDJPY, EURJPY and other Yen crosses also posted moderate gains as the Japanese currency saw some of its safe haven premium unwind. Better than expected China trade numbers and Japan and South Korea’s news helped buoy investor spirits, and while the official fixing of the onshore Yuan today was at a new 10-year plus low against the Dollar of 7.0039 (up from 6.9996 yesterday), a little firmer than markets had been anticipating.

    Main Macro Events Today

    * Jobless Claims (USD, GMT 12:20) – Initial jobless claims for the week of August 3 are estimated to fall to 214k, after rising to 215k in the week of July 27. Claims should average a cycle-low 212k in July, as seen last September, versus 222k in June and 217k in May. Claims drifted higher into June from tight levels through May, with a spike higher with the advent of the auto retooling season, but with an ensuing drop into mid-July with seasonal factor payback.

    * 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.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 12th August 2019.




    * Following a week of aggressive global central bank easing, with the escalation of the US-China trade war that is looking to have turned into a currency war, markets might take a small breath in the week ahead. However, the markets expected to remain volatile as the week is packed of economic data releases.

    Tuesday – 13 August 2019

    * Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The final German HICP inflation for July expected to remain at 1.1% y/y after falling from 1.3% y/y in July’s preliminary release.

    * Average Earnings & ILO Unemployment Rate (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The ILO unemployment rate (3-month) is expected to have remained at 3.8%, with average income falling 3.5% y/y in the three months to June in the ex-bonus figure, and to 3.1% in the in-bonus figure from 3.4% y/y in July.

    * ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for August is projected at -22.3 from the -24.5 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though expected to improved slightly at -3.1 from -20.3.

    * Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – US CPI is expected to rise a 0.2% headline in July with a 0.2% increase in core prices, following respective June readings of 0.1% and 0.3%. As-expected gains would result in a headline y/y gain of 1.6%, steady from 1.6% in June, while core prices should rise 2.1%, a steady pace from June. Overall, the inflation outlook remains benign, though with an updraft into the end of Q1 and early-Q2 from a petroleum price rebound that reversed course temporarily in May.

    Wednesday – 14 August 2019

    * Industrial Production and Retail Sales (CNY, GMT 02:00) – The Chinese Industrial Production growth is expected to have decreased at 5.8% y/y in July from 6.3% y/y last month. A weak reading is also expected in Retail Sales figure at 8.6% from 9.8%.

    * Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 06:00-09:00) – German Preliminary Q2 results are expected to have stood at 0.4% q/q. Eurozone prelim. Q2 GDP growth expected to be confirmed at 0.2% q/q and 1.1% y/y.

    * Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The UK July CPI expected to meet once again the expectations at 2.0% y/y, which was unchanged from the May rate. Core inflation should remain to 1.8% y/y. The data fits BoE projections, and shows that perky wage inflation hasn’t translated into higher headline rates yet.

    Thursday – 15 August 2019

    * Employment Data (AUD, GMT 01:30) – While the Unemployment Rate is expected to have remained at 5.2% in July, employment change is expected to have increased to 26.8K from 0.5K last month.

    * Retail Sales (GBP, GMT 08:30) – UK Retail Sales are expected to have declined to -1.4%m/m in July following a 1.0% m/m contraction in June. In the y/y comparison, sales should rise 4.0% while the ex-fuel is projected at 2.7% y/y from 3.6% y/y.

    * Retail Sales and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – A 0.3% July retail sales headline is anticipated with a 0.5% increase for the ex-autos figure, following 0.4% June gains for both measures. Gasoline prices should provide a boost to retail activity given an estimated 1.7% gain for the CPI gasoline figure, though unit vehicle sales fell to a 16.8 mln pace in July from a 17.1 mln clip in June. Real consumer spending is expected to grow at a 2.9% rate in Q3, following the 4.3% Q2 clip.

    * Philadelphia Fed Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Philly Fed index is seen falling to 9.0 from a 1-year high of 21.8 in July, versus a 33-month low of -4.1 in February. 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.

    Friday – 16 August 2019

    * Housing Data and Building Permits (USD, GMT 12:30) – Housing starts should rise to a 1.260 mln pace in July, after a dip to 1.253 mln in July. Permits are expected to improve to 1.270 mln in July, after falling to 1.232 mln in June. Overall, starts and permits should show a firm path into Q3, and the Q3 averages are expected of 1.263 mln for starts and 1.295 mln for permits.

    * Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – The preliminary August Michigan sentiment reading is forecast at 97.5, up from the final July sentiment at 98.4.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 13th August 2019.




    FX News Today

    * RISK OFF

    * 10-year Treasury yields are down -0.8 bp at 1.637%, JGB yields fell back -1.4 bp to -0.341% after falling to the lowest level since 2016 during the course of the session.

    * Risk Aversion continued to dominate during the Asian session and stock markets headed south after the S&P fell more than 1.5% on Monday.

    * Bond markets remained supported as investors continue to bet on further central bank action with trade concerns, Brexit risks and political unrest in Hong Kong adding to the risk off backdrop. U.S. 30-year rates are nearing all time lows with Argentina default risks only boosting the flight to quality that is seeing a marked flattening of the curve.

    * In Asia escalating political protests in Hong Kong remain in focus and Australia’s 10-year bond yield opened at a fresh all time low. China’s 10-year rate meanwhile fell below 3% for the first time since 2016 before steadying slightly above the 3% mark.

    * GOLD breaches $1520.00 (highest since April 2103) and USOil meanwhile is trading at USD 54.81 per barrel.

    Charts of the Day



    Technician’s Corner

    * USD: The The dollar has traded moderately firmer against most of the other main currencies outside the case against the Australian dollar, which has modestly outperformed so far today. The yen softened, correcting some of the recent safe-haven driven gains, despite a tumble on Wall Street yesterday and across Asian equity bourses today, though the Japanese currency has lifted out of its lows into the London interbank open. There is plenty on the worry list, including disruptive pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong and a crash in Argentina’s peso following a poor performance of market-friendly Argentine President Macri in presidential primaries. Singapore also made a substantial cut to its GDP forecast for 2019 (to between 0% and 1%, down from 1.5%-2.5%), citing the deteriorating global conditions, with the Hong Kong situation, along with the U.S.-China and South Korea-Japan trade wars, and Brexit, all getting a mention. The U.S. yield curve is now at its lowest level since 2007, which is seen by many as portending recession, or at least a significant risk of recession. GS analysts also said that the U.S.-China trade war will have a bigger detrimental impact on the U.S. economy than it previously thought. A Reuters poll, meanwhile, found a new high in the probability being ascribed by analysts for there being a no-deal Brexit, which is now pegged at 35%, up from 30% in the previous survey. Amid all this, the PBoC set the yuan at a new near 11-year low against the dollar at the day’s midpoint fixing, at 7.0326, versus 7.0211 yesterday. Given the risk-on vibe, the yen looks likely to find fresh demand in London, with shorts of AUD-JPY and GBP-JPY likely

    Events to Look Out for This Week.




    Trade worries remain and are expected to keep flip-flopping between risk-off and risk-back-on sentiment. Hopes for more central bank stimulus vies with fears that a number of major economies are simultaneously heading for recession, with a number of developing-world economies with high Dollar debt levels particularly exposed to the shifting financial cycle. Given these fears, further conciliatory remarks are likely from both China and the US with regard to their trade spat. Nevertheless, next week the economic calendar also focuses on the PMI releases globally.

    Monday – 19 August 2019

    * Consumer Price Index and Core (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI for July is expected to hold at 1.1%y/y in the final July reading from 1.3%y/y in June. Energy price inflation was clearly largely to blame and the core rate fell back to just 0.9%y/y from 1.1%y/y in the previous month. The core is anticipated to remain unchanged as well. With growth slowing down and the improvement on the labour market starting to fizzle out, chances are that inflation will continue to undershoot the ECB’s target range, thus adding to arguments for a comprehensive easing package in September.


    Tuesday – 20 August 2019

    * Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30)– The RBA left rates on hold in its last meeting, after back-to-back rate cuts in June and July, which put the cash rate at a record low of 1.00%, while Governor Lowe said that more easing measures could be needed. Minutes are expected to shed further light regarding future easing stance.

    * Manufacturing Sales (CAD, GMT 12:30)[/B]– Manufacturing sales are anticipated to grow 2.0% in June after a 1.6% rebound in shipment values was revealed during May and following a 0.4% decline in April. The surge in transport equipment sales is consistent with the improving economy and as such fits with the BoC’s overall view that the economy is improving after temporary weakness in Q4/Q1.


    Wednesday – 21 August 2019

    * Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada’s CPI did not challenge the outlook for steady BoC policy this year. CPI slowed to a 2.0% y/y pace in June from the lofty 2.4% y/y clip in May. Inflation remains around the 2 percent target, with some recent upward pressure from higher food and automobile prices. Core measures of inflation are also close to 2 percent. Even though CPI inflation will likely dip this year because of the dynamics of gasoline prices and some other temporary factors, the annual and monthly numbers for July are expected to remain steady. As slack in the economy is absorbed and these temporary effects wane, inflation is expected to return sustainably to 2 percent by mid-2020.

    *FOMC Minutes (USD, GMT 18:00) – The FOMC minutes, similar to the ECB Reports, provide an assessment as regards the views of the Fed’s policymakers about the interest-setter’s future stance and are usually a cause for FX turbulence.

    Thursday – 22 August 2019

    * Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 1

    *Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30-08:00) – July PMI readings highlighted manufacturing weakness. This picture is likely to be seen again in the preliminary readings for August, as Manufacturing PMI has been forecast at 46.3 from 46.5 last month, still down from 47.6 in June, and indicates a deepening recession in a sector that has been hit very hard by global trade tensions and no-deal Brexit risks. Meanwhile Services PMI is expected to fall to 52.7 from 53.2.

    *Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing are expected to grow in August, to 51.0 from 50.4, as Services PMIs are likely to fall to 51.7 from 53.

    *New Zealand Retail Sales (NZD, GMT 22:45) – Usually considered an index of consumer confidence and overall consumption in the economy, higher retail sales point to higher consumption and hence higher economic growth which is good for the currency.

    Friday- 23 August 2019

    * Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 2

    *Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales are expected to have decreased in Canada, with consensus forecasts suggesting a -0.5% m/m decline should be registered in June and an unchanged ex-autos component at 0.3%. In May, Retail sales were disappointing, falling 0.1% for total sales and declining 0.3% for the ex-autos component. The decline in sales was driven by a 2.0% tumble in food and beverage stores. The report casts some doubt on the resiliency of the consumer sector to the ongoing parade of worrisome geopolitical and trade developments.
