    Market Update – May 5 – Yellen finesses comments.


    Market News TodayUSD continues its May recovery (USDIndex holds over 91.00), Equities closed lower (Nasdaq shed 1.88%). Mrs. Yellen spooked the market and then toned down her interest rate rise/inflation comments. The Fed’s Kaplan and Allianz’s Al El-Erian also talk up “non-transitory” nature of the inflation threat. Yields cooled on USD advance, fell to 1.55% before moving 1.59%. Overnight Good jobs data from NZD and Housing data from AUD lift the antipodean pair. Japan, China and South Korea still closed.

    EUR – down to test 1.2000 zone, JPY holds over 109.00 at 109.40, Cable rotates around 1.3900. AUD has support at 0.7700 and CAD still rotates through 1.2300

    USOIL
    at 38-day high peaked at $66.00, Gold – $1776 following a volatile session (highs $1798, lows $1770) Commodities remain robust. BTC back to test $55,000(PP).

    European Open – The rout in tech stocks that hit markets yesterday has eased somewhat and US futures are moving higher – DAX and FTSE 100 futures are also sought. Comments from US Treasury Secretary Yellen yesterday reminded markets that with economies strengthening as fiscal stimulus picks up it is not a question of if, but when central banks will take the foot off the accelerator. Official rates may remain low for a while to come, but when asset purchases are reigned in, the long end will suffer. Stocks meanwhile may continue to see rotations out of companies that benefited from stay home orders to cyclicals. With the DAX closing below the 15000 mark yesterday there is room to the downside.

    Today – Eurozone & US services & composite PMIs, ISM services PMI, ADP Employment, Oil Inventories, Fed’s Evans, Rosengren, Mester, ECB’s Lane, Earnings from GM, Barrick Gold, Maersk, Deutsche Post, Uber, PayPal & Hilton Hotels.

    Biggest (FX) Mover @ (07:30 GMT) NZDJPY (-0.27%) rallied from 6-day low yesterday (77.70) over 78.00. Today, PP at 78.07 and R1 at 78.50. Faster MAs remain aligned higher, RSI 53 & neutral, MACD histogram over 0 line & signal line aligned higher but under 0 line. Stochs cooling to neutral. H1 ATR 0.1065, Daily ATR 0.6200.

    Market Update – May 3.


    Market News TodayA month-end bid, and rotation out of equities has supported!

    Covid continues to wreak havoc in parts of Asia, and will keep investors nervous again this week, as India deals with a firestorm of new cases (the highest daily cases anywhere in the world) and rising deaths. Additionally, parts of Japan remain under a state of emergency with restrictions in areas including Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto. Japan will be on Golden Week holidays Monday through Wednesday, and there are no top-tier data releases for the remainder of the week. China’s April trade report is due at the end of the week. The quiet session in Asia impacted trading in Europe today, with the UK still on an extended weekend break. GER30 futures are fractionally higher at the moment, and US futures are outperforming, although the tech heavy USA100 future is struggling amid lingering concern over China’s anti-trust crackdown, that also saw the Hang Seng selling off again. Inflation developments and lingering tapering fears will also be on markets’ minds as the BoE meeting comes into view. Elsewhere, CPI data from around the globe, along with the usual mix of growth, trade, retail sales and US NFP. For central banks, the RBA, BoJ and BoE meet, though no changes are expected. German retail sales jumped 7.7% m/m in March.

    In FX markets, the Yen and US Dollar retreated and USDJPY lifted to 109.62, while the USDIndex jumped to 91.40. The US Dollar strengthened as risk trades slipped further. USOIL meanwhile dropped back to $62.90 per barrel. Ethereum has hit a fresh record high, following news of a potential digital bond sale on the ethereum blockchain.

    Today – The calendar today includes the final readings for Eurozone April manufacturing PMIs, the US ISM Manufacturing PMI and Fed Chairman Powell’s speech. Earnings season continues with reports from Estee Lauder, Enterprise Products, Alexion Pharmaceuticals, WEC Energy, Williams Companies, ON Semi, SolarEdge, Loews Corp., Diamondback Energy, Chegg, and Apollo Global Management. The Treasury will outline its Q2 and Q3 borrowing projections.


    Biggest (FX) Mover @ 07:30 GMT (+0.37%) – NZDJPY reversed Friday’s losses and extended to 78.65. The overall outlook remains positive, while in the 1-hour chart, momentum is rising higher with fast MAs aligned higher, while RSI is breaking above 50 with MACD extending northwards but remains below 0. ATR (H1) at 0.1104 & ATR (D) at 0.6449.

Mainland China bourses were under pressure and the CSI 300 has lost -0.47% so far. Shanghai and Shenzen Comp are also down -0.185 and -0.26% respectively. The Hang Seng is up 0.49% though and Topix and Nikkei gained 0.24% and 0.10% as tech stocks stabilized after a three day rout.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 09th October 2018.




    FX News Today

    FX Action:USDJPY has settled around 113.00, above the eight-session low printed yesterday at 112.82. Ranges have been narrow in currency markets, despite risk appetite remaining firmly on the negative side of the dial. The MSCI Asia-Pacific (ex Japan) Index hit a 17-month low. The IMF cut its growth forecasts for both this year and next, including downgrades of the outlooks for the US, Europe and China. PBoC set the USD-CNY reference rate at 6.9019. Often times, such a backdrop would see the Yen appreciate, though the rise in US over Japan yield differential appears to be providing offsetting support for USDJPY. The 10-year US Treasury yield has today lifted to a fresh 7-year highs above 3.25%.

    Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are up 0.5 bp at 3.239%, Treasury yields climbed 0.1 bp to 0.146%, while stocks traded mixed during the Asian session. Chinese and Hong Kong markets stabilized after yesterday’s sharp correction in Chinese stocks that were partly driven by catch up trades. A stronger Yen meanwhile weighed on Japanese equities. IMF warnings on the global growth outlook meanwhile lifted pressure on bonds, although the IMF referred mainly to growth outside the US and tax cut fuelled expansion in the US will continue to keep the Fed on a tightening path. Still, some are expecting BoJ to act more aggressively to curb the uptick in long yields. Topix and Nikkei are currently down -1.84% and -1.30% respectively. The ASX fell -0.97% though, and U.S. stock futures are also down while oil prices climbed higher and the front end Nymex future is trading at USD 74.67 per barrel.

    Charts of the Day

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 27th September 2018.




    FX News Today

    FX Action: Both the Dollar and the Yen have risen against most other currencies, with the Japanese currency outperforming its North American counterpart. This comes amid a risk-off backdrop, with Asian stock markets having come under pressure following a firm start. Japan’s Nikkei 225 declined 1% at its close, while the Shanghai Composite reversed out of an AM-session gain, and is presently at its lows and showing a 0.6% loss in the second hour of the PM session. EURUSD and EURJPY have ebbed to respective one-week lows of 1.1691 and 131.67. USDJPY edged out a three-day low at 112.60, while EURJPY posted a one-week low at 131.77. AUDJPY, which has been the biggest mover out of the main Dollar pairings and associated cross rates, also traded at one-week lows with a loss of 0.5%. Focus will now fall on Italy. There have been reports that a Cabinet meeting is scheduled today to finalize the Economic and Financial Document after being postponed “due to new complications” as the coalition government struggles to find common ground over the budget. This issue, if unresolved, has the potential to send the Euro sharply lower.

    Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields lost earlier gains and are down 0.9 bp at 3.039%, 10-year JGB yields declined -0.3 bp to 0.110% and bonds were generally sought as stock markets declined. Wall Street turned negative late in the session following the FOMC meeting, which hiked rates as expected and removed the “accommodative” language. At the same time the “neutral” rate was lifted and Fed continues to pencil in another move this year, and three more for 2019, with Powell saying that Fed could raise rates past the neutral level. Topix and Nikkei are down -0.81% and -0.54% respectively, Hang Seng and CSI 300 declined -0.27% and -0.32% and the ASX lost -0.19% so far. US stock futures are trying to move higher though, indicating that investors will quickly recover from the Fed statement that is, in some ways, ambiguous for the markets. Oil prices are higher and the front end Nymex future is trading at USD 72.34 per barrel.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * US Jobless Claims – Expectations – Jobless claims are expected to increase, with consensus forecasts putting the number of new claimants at 210,000 compared to 201,000 last month.

    * GDP Price Index – Expectations – The GDP Price Index is a broader index than the CPI, with different weights, and also provides a different view of price developments in the economy. Consensus Forecasts suggest that prices will have increased by 3.0% in Q2, compared to 3.2% in Q1.

    * Personal Consumption Expenditures – Expectations – The Fed’s favourite inflation index is expected to increase by 1.9% in Q2, same as last quarter, with the core index expected to increase by 2%.

    * Durable Goods Orders ex Transportation – Expectations – Durable Goods orders are expected to have increased by 0.5% in August, compared to 0.2% in July.

    * ECB Draghi Speech – The ECB President is due to deliver opening remarks at the European Systemic Risk Board annual conference in Frankfurt.

    FX News Today

    FX Action: USDJPY traded above 113.00 for the first time since mid July, posting a high at 113.02, before settling to a narrow range just under the figure. AUDJPY concurrently posted a three-session high and while EURJPY also lifted, the cross remained just off recent five-month highs. Buoyant stock markets have kept the Yen on a softening path. China equities recorded gains, with the Shanghai Composite showing a 1.3% gain in the first hour of trading in the PM session, posting an eight-week high earlier on the day. The MSCI Asia-Pacific (ex Japan) index is showing a 0.4% advance, although also off its highs. Chinese equities were lifted by news that MSCI is considering quadrupling the weighting of Chinese big-caps in its global benchmarks.

    Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are down -0.4 bp at 3.093%, 10-year JGB yields pulled back -0.6 bp to 0.117%. Yields remain at high level ahead of the Fed decision today and as global central banks continue to reign in stimulus. Asian stock markets meanwhile moved mostly higher, although Japanese indices traded mixed with the Topix retreating from its highest level in almost eight months. Hong Kong returned from holiday and rallied in catch up trade, while Chinese markets got a boost from reports that MSCI is considering to lift the weight of shares in its global indexes. US President Trump told the UN that the trade deficit with China “is just not acceptable”. Meanwhile the Asian Development Bank warned that the US-China trade war is dimming Asia’s growth outlook for next year. The Topix is down -0.26%, against a 0.30% gain in the Nikkei. Hang Seng and CSI 300 rallied 1.83% and 1.84% respectively, the ASX is little changed at +0.02%. U.S. futures are also broadly higher.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 25th September 2018.




    FX News Today

    FX Action: USDJPY posted a two-month high of 112.98 during the Tokyo morning session, which was the product of a bout of general Yen selling capped out in the face of Japanese exporter offers. The release of the minutes of the recent BoJ meeting had little impact, nor did a speech by BoJ Governor Kuroda, who said it will take longer than expected to bring inflation to the central bank’s 2% target. China said talks with the US cannot take place under threats and pressure, while the US approved of a $330 mln arms sale to Taiwan, which is sure to ruffle feathers in Beijing.

    Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields climbed 0.8 bp to 2.096%, and JGB yields picked up 0.4 bp to 0.123%, after returning from holiday. There were no real surprises in the BoJ minutes from the July meeting and the JGB curve continues to steepen. Australia’s 10-year bond jumped 5.1 bp amid stop selling after the 10-year future broke contract lows and following a pick up in Treasury yields yesterday. Chinese 10-year rates meanwhile declined. Stock markets also traded mixed, as Japan and China returned from holiday. Trade concerns remained high on the agenda as China warned that it won’t agree to trade talks unless the US stops threatening additional tariffs. US political developments also clouded over confidence. Topix and Nikkei are up 0.56% and 0.15% respectively and CSI lost -1.08%, while US futures are marginally lower. Oil prices rose further above the USD 72 per barrel mark.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * US Conference Board Consumer Confidence – Expectations – The level of consumer confidence is usually a leading indicator of consumer spending. Expectations are that the Confidence Index will be less than last month’s but will remain high nonetheless.

    * S&P Case-Shiller House Price Index – Expectations – Housing prices are an important indicator given that rising house prices attract investors and spur industry activity. Expectations are that the Index will grow by 6.2% y/y compared to 6.3% last month.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 21st September 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: Stock markets continued to rally during the Asian session after a record close on Wall Street yesterday. Risk appetite is back after robust US data yesterday added to hopes that the fallout from the latest round of US-China tariffs can be contained and that there will eventually be deals on trade and Brexit, despite little progress at the informal EU summit yesterday. Improvements in emerging market assets have also helped to underpin confidence with investors buying back into the rout. 10-year Treasury yields moved up 1.3 bp to 3.076%, 10 year JGB yields jumped 1.6 bp to 0.125% and 30-year yields rose 4.4 bp as BoJ cut bond purchases. Topix and Nikkei are up 1.01% and 1.06% respectively underpinned by a weaker Yen, the Hang Seng has gained 1.13% so far and the CSI 300 is up 1.80%. US stock futures are equally broadly higher, Oil prices are slightly lower and the November WTI future is trading at USD 70.25 per barrel. Today’s calendar includes Eurozone PMI readings as well as public finance data for the UK.

    FX Action: USDJPY has lifted to a fresh two-month high at 112.80 amid a backdrop of a coursing risk-on theme in global markets. The USA30 and USA500 hit record highs yesterday, and Asian stocks have rallied robustly across the board. JP225 hit a 4-month high, and the Shanghai Composite a two-week high, with both showing gains of 1% or more. Expectations for China to turn the fiscal stimulus tap, among other measures, have been helping underpin sentiment in Asia, while the unexpectedly low starting tariff rate of 10% in Trump’s latest move on Chinese imports this week, along with tech sector exemptions, have helped buoy sentiment Global fundamentals are otherwise solid, despite the threat from the trade war escalation (with Beijing not expected to negotiate until after the mid-term elections in the US).

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * Eurozone Sep. PMI – Expectations – The Eurozone manufacturing PMI is expected at 54.5, down from 54.6 in the previous month, and expect the services reading to improve slightly to 54.5, which should leave the composite unchanged from August at 54.5. This still suggests ongoing expansion, but would also confirm the decelerating trend.

    * Canada CPI & Retail Sales – Expectations – CPI is expected to hold steady in August after the 0.5% surge in July. The CPI is projected to grow at a 2.9% y/y pace in August, easing slightly from the 3.0% pace in July that was the top of BoC’s 1-3% target range.  Canada retail sales values are expected to rise 0.5% in July after the 0.2% drop in June.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 20th September 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are down -0.2 bp at 3.061% and 10-year JGB yields are up 0.1 bp at 0.110%. Yields have come quite a way over the past week and Treasury yields are still holding above the 3% mark, but the stock market rally started to stutter during the Asian session with indices turning mixed. The Dow Jones still managed a solid gain yesterday, but the NASDAQ closed slightly lower and in Asia stocks drifted. Japanese indices traded near three-month highs, but at these levels it seems investors are getting cautious as trade concerns continue to cloud over the outlook. Nikkei and Topix are down -0.045 and -0.12% respectively. It would not be the first time that Chinese indices rebound late in session, but it seems for now markets are consolidating and waiting for further news. US futures are also narrowly mixed, oil prices are higher and the WTI future is trading at USD 71.63 per barrel.

    FX Action: USDJPY has drifted lower, posting a two-day low at 112.07 in a moderate move driven by a softer Dollar. Risk appetite has continued to hold up with Asian stock markets gaining, albeit modestly,  for the most part, and the main Chinese indexes lifting out of negative territory in the first hour of trading after the lunch break. Japanese PM Abe won a leadership challenge by a landslide, as expected, which puts him on track to becoming Japan’s longest serving prime minister. In the bigger view, USDJPY is currently trading in the upper reaches of a broadly sideways range that’s been unfolding for some 10 weeks now. Great odds have been placed for a sustained move downward rather than a sustained move upward as China looks to be digging for trade war escalation (at least until after the midterm elections in the US), which could lead to an increased safe haven premium being put on the Yen. USDJPY has resistance at 112.44-45, and support at 111.77-80.
