Events to Look Out for This Week.


[IMG]

The growing worries over the spreading coronavirus, the rollback in some reopenings, and possible flattening in growth have set the scene for risk aversion. Adding to the mix is the the increased friction between the US-China. Therefore next week’s inflation and GDP data out of some of the major economies and Fed monetary policy and press conference could be the highlights in the coming week. Another focus is the upcoming Q2 corporate earnings season, which will get into gear next week with “show and tells” from the FANGs and tech sector in general.

Have a look at the most important events of the coming days in our usual weekly publication.

Monday – 27 July 2020
 

  • German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – German IFO business confidence is expected to slip to 85 after the jump seen in June. The current conditions index nudged higher, but less than hoped and the overall improvement is mainly due to a jump in the future expectations reading.
  • Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to rise 14.0% in June with a 55.7% surge in transportation orders, after a 15.7% headline orders rebound in May that included an 82.0% transportation orders surge. Durable shipments should rise 10.5%, and inventories should rise 0.5%.

Tuesday – 28 July 2020
 

  • Consumer confidence (USD, GMT 14:00) – Consumer confidence is expected to bounce to 128.0 in July from 121.5 in June, versus another 16-month low of 121.7 as recently as January and an 18-year high of 137.9 in October. Overall, confidence measures remain historically high.

Wednesday – 29 July 2020
 

  • Consumer Price Index (AUD, GMT 01:30) – Australian Q2 CPI is expected to rise to 0.2% after confirmed at 0.3% q/q for Q1 2020.
  • Interest rate Decision and Conference (USD, GMT 18:00) – The FED is committed to using its full range of tools to support the U.S. economy in this challenging time, thereby promoting its maximum employment and price stability goals. Hence dovish guidance is expected from the Fed at next week’s FOMC, with some speculating that the US central bank is considering yield curve targeting. A Reuters survey highlighted increasing pessimism about the nearer-term US outlook given the extent of localized lockdown measures in response to the spike in coronavirus cases across many southern and western states.

Thursday – 30 July 2020
 

  • Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 06:00) – Q1 2020 GDP was confirmed at -2.2% q/q as investment, consumption plunged. Q2 will look even worse as several economic sectors remain impacted by lockdown and new measures. More importantly, the disruptions of supply chains during the height of lockdowns have led many to re-focus on domestic production and Germany’s export oriented production sector that also relies heavily on real time supply chains, may have to rethink its strategy long term.
  • Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 12:00) – The German HICP inflation is expected to slip back to 0.6% y/y for July after it was revised up to 0.8% y/y in June.
  • Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – Gross Domestic Product is expected to show a contraction rate of -32.0%, with weakness across all the GDP components thanks to mandatory closures between mid-March and early-May. The Q2 hits to the economy were particularly large for net exports, and exports in particular, alongside hefty pull-backs in service consumption.
  • Jobless Claims (USD, GMT 12:30)– US Initial jobless claims rose 109k to 1,416k in the week ended July 18, missing estimates for a 16th straight decline. This uptick follows the -3k slide to 1,307k (was 1,300k) in the July 11 week and the -98k drop to 1,310k over the July 4 week.

Friday – 31 July 2020
 

  • Manufacturing PMI (CNY, GMT 01:00) – Final non- and NBS-Manufacturing PMIs are expected to decline in July, to 51.2 from 54.4 and 48.6 from 50.9 respectively.
  • Retail Sales (EUR, GMT 06:00) – 11% June retail sales gains are expected for Germany, following 13.9% May gains. April revised to -6.5% m/m.
  • Consumer Price Index & Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 09:00) –The Eurozone Inflation was confirmed at 0.3% y/y in the final June reading, in line with the preliminary number and up from 0.1% y/y in the previous month. Core inflation fell back to 0.8% y/y as food price inflation decelerated, although at 3.2% y/y it remains high, largely thanks to the knock on effects of lockdown measures. The preliminary CPI for July is expected to come at 0.4% y/y, with the core inflation at 0.9% y/y. Preliminary Gross Domestic Product is expected to slow further to -4.7% in Q2, after Q1 GDP revised up to -3.6% q/q from -3.8% q/q reported initially.

eBay Earning Preview – Will it Benefit from Social Distancing?

[IMG]

eBay (MT4 Symbol: EBAY) is set to report its second quarter 2020 earnings after the market closes on 28th July 2020 (Tuesday). It is attracting significant interest from investors as they will get an early look at the performance of the e-commerce company during the global lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic. eBay will be the first among the major US e-commerce companies to report its earnings as Shopify will report its earnings on 29th July followed by Amazon on 30th July.

This week’s announcement also will be eBay’s first quarterly report under new CEO Jamie Iannone, who joined the company at the end of April. This quarterly report will be expected to leave a good impression as in early June, eBay raised its 2nd quarter (Q2) outlook as the company results exceeded expectations during Covid-19. They expect the Q2 revenue to increase in the range of $2.75 billion to $2.8 billion (April guidance: 2.38 billion – $2.48 billion) and adjusted earning per share in the range of $1.02-$1.06.

eBay will report its second quarter earnings on after US trading day closes later today (July 28). The e-commerce giant is expected to report earnings per share of $1.06, up from $0.68 in the prior year quarter. Revenue is projected at $2.80 billion with the growth estimate for the current quarter at 4.10%. Most analysts expect that eBay’s upcoming earnings report will beat the forecast.

Technical Analysis
eBay’s share price has been on fire in 2020. eBay stock currently trades at $57, after climbing ~57% in 2020. BMO Capital lifted the target price of eBay stock to $59, while Wedbush and Keybanc hiked eBay’s target price to $65.

From the technical perspective, the trend is currently bullish. The price is positioned higher than both the 50 Day Moving Average and the 200 Day Moving Average. The share currently trades at $57.21, slightly lower than the 2020 high of $61.13 which also act as a strong resistance. The subsequent resistance is at $66.71 (2015 high). The immediate support for the share is at $54.03 and followed by support at the 50 Daily MA ($50.61).

The share price is on course for its best performing year. The 14-day RSI indicator has retraced from overbought region and currently shows momentum to the upside.

FX Update – July 29 – USD got a break but not for long.

[IMG]

USDJPY, H1

The Dollar relief rally yesterday and dip today is consolidating the sharp declines seen over the prior 10 days. The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex has posted new 25-month lows at 93.31 today, breaking below Monday’s 93.40 low. EURUSD is showing gains too, though below the 22-month high seen on Monday at 1.1780. Cable has moved higher to test R1 at 1.2975, and above the five-month high seen Tuesday at 1.2951. AUDUSD whittled out a fresh 15-month peak at 0.7192, 8 pips shy of the key 0.7200 which was last seen on April 14. USDCAD trades at the 1.3360 mark, above Tuesday’s seven-week low at 1.3329. USDJPY remains heavy, and broke below yesterday’s near five-month low at 104.93, to register a new low at 104.80 before finding support. The Japanese currency is registering as the biggest gainer on the week so far, gaining most against the US Dollar and New Zealand Dollar, with just over a 2% advance versus both underperformers. The sputtering price action in global equity markets has driven safe haven demand into the Yen, with the Dollar evidently perceived to be no longer providing protection.

[IMG]

Profit taking and position trimming has been a theme across markets over the last day into the Fed’s policy announcement and the final week of political wrangling over the next US fiscal package (there is a degree of uncertainty about the outcomes of both, or at least in terms of signalling with regard to the Fed). Corporate earnings and concerns about the impact of new localized lockdown measures due to spikes in coronavirus infections have also been in the mix.

[IMG]

Regarding the Fed, no policy changes are expected and a dovish stance is expected, though Forex markets will be laser focused on whether there is a signal that it will tolerate higher inflation, as this could weigh on real yields, and thereby the Dollar, further. Additional comments surrounding the purchase of longer-dated debt and the sticky and tricky issue of yield caps will be in the spotlight. The statement is due at 18:00 GMT with Chair Powell’s Press Conference 30 minutes later.

Always trade with strict risk management. Your capital is the single most important aspect of your trading business.

US GDP & Claims data.

 
 
[IMG]


EURUSD, H1

The US advance GDP report beat estimates with a -32.9% Q2 contraction rate that was a modestly smaller drop than feared, though it still constituted a record drop, following annual revisions that raised the real and nominal GDP levels as of Q1, but left the chain price index the same. For revisions, the -5.0% Q1 real GDP figure was left unrevised, though the prior two quarterly gains were raised to 2.4% (was 2.1%) in Q4 and 2.6% (was 2.1%) in Q3, hence leaving a stronger trajectory into Q2. There were plenty of Q2 component surprises, with the big upside surprise coming from a much weaker than assumed real import figure, where we saw a -53.4% decline (import drops add to GDP), alongside an expected -64.1% export drop. We also saw a surprising 2.7% rise for real government purchases, instead of the widely assumed drop. The Q2 inventory figures posted the expected huge liquidation, with a -$234.6 bln inventory subtraction that left a record-large liquidation rate of -$315.5 bln. We saw more modest downside Q2 surprises for the investment figures, with a -27.0% contraction rate for business fixed investment and a -38.7% for residential investment. Consumption fell -34.6% in Q2, which was a tad weaker than we assumed but was in line with market estimates. Today’s GDP and claims data prompted tentative bumps to GDP forecasts to 28.0% (was 31%) in Q3 and 9.0% (was 7.5%) in Q4, and a trimming of the July non-farm payroll estimate to 2.6 million from 3.3 million.

The Dollar was unchanged following the data, where Q2 GDP fell a historic 32.9% and jobless claims rose another 1.434 mln versus the 1.422 previously. EURUSD sits near 1.1790, having spiked over 1.1800, and the USDJPY is steady at 105.15.

Sterling Storms On.

[IMG]


GBPUSD, H1


Cable has pinned a new five-month peak at 1.3145. The pair is now firmly back in pre-lockdown territory. The UK currency still registers as the weakest of the main currencies on the year-to-date, and by some distance in trade-weighted terms, while recent dollar underperformance has been somewhat flattering the Pound. Nevertheless, there are some convincing bullish arguments in market narratives. One is the pick-up in the pace of economic recovery in the UK, as evidenced by the much stronger than forecast preliminary July PMI data and improvement in the CBI’s July distributive sales report, which flagged a near full recovery in the retail sector, with sales in upcoming months seen at near seasonal norms. There have also been signs that have led markets to factor in improved odds for an EU-UK trade deal, with a number of sourced press reports suggesting that discussions are going better than the official line suggests. However, the Government’s handling of the pandemic has been coming under daily scrutiny and last night’s sudden announcement of restrictions and lock-downs in parts of northern England only added to the uncertainty.

[IMG]

Technically, Cable breached the key 20-day simple moving average on July 7 and has rallied significantly over the last 11 trading days, posting consecutive gains each day. The next Donchian Channel top is 1.3200 and then 1.3500. The 200-day moving average sits way below at 1.2688 and the RSI has breached into the 80s this week into overbought territory.

FX Update – August 6 – USD to new lows.

[IMG]
Trading Leveraged Products is risky
The USDIndex edged out a fresh 27-month low at 92.50, continuing what is a fourth consecutive week of decline and a fourth straight month of decline, dropping by just over 10% from the early March peak. The loss of confidence in the US currency has partly been reflected in the ongoing rally in gold, which has remained buoyant after posting a fresh record nominal high at $2,055.00 yesterday.

A deal on the US fiscal package remains elusive, though President Trump’s threat to take executive action to cut payroll taxes managed to keep investor spirits up, along with the above-forecast services ISM out of the US, and more positive news from the candidate vaccine front for the SARS Cov-2 coronavirus. The good vibe across equity markets flagged somewhat as the Asia session wore on, however. The MSCI Asia-Pacific equity index printed a six-and-a-half-month-high during early trading before turning lower to near net unchanged levels. S&P 500 futures, while off highs, still show moderate gains, while the European markets have opened lower to start the day.

AUDUSD saw a downward flurry after the Australian government lifted its unemployment forecast while forecasting growth would be trimmed by 2.5 percentage points as a consequence of its own lockdown measures (having chosen the sledgehammer approach, similar to many other nations, despite the standout success of the much less costly Swedish approach, which has refrained from lockdown and masks and has performed near the same as most other European countries during the pandemic, with its ICU and mortality numbers having now dropped to near nothing). AUDUSD dipped to a 0.7184 low, which is nearly 60 pips below yesterday’s peak.

Elsewhere, EURUSD edged out a new 27-month high at 1.1917, and Cable a five-month peak at 1.3182. USDJPY idled in the mid 105.00s, above yesterday’s six-day low at 105.32. USDCAD settled above the six-month low seen yesterday at 1.3231. Front-month USOIL crude futures settled in the lower $42.00s, below Wednesday’s five-month peak at $43.52.

Technical Overview of AUD/USD

AUD/USD

The AUD/USD pair will be traded at the level 0.7215 and go down from China released July month trade data at the Early Friday.

The Aussie pair has as of late been beaten somewhere in the range of 0.7210 and 0.7220 after its U-turn an 18-month top in the midst of the underlying Asian meeting.

China's July month Trade Balance crossed conjecture and earlier while blazing 442.23 B figures on a Chinese Yuan basis. Subtleties recommend that the Exports flood from 2.3% expected and 4.3% past directions to 10.4% yet Imports switched - 0.7% market understanding with 1.6% figures. 

Except if breaking a rising pattern line from May 22, combined with 21-day EMA, close to 0.7110-0.7100, the bears are less inclined to take controls. Therefore, bulls focusing on the year 2019 top close to 0.7300 should stay confident. 

The AUD/USD was previously close at the level of 0.7233. The Support and Resistance level of the pair will be 0.7184 and 0.7213.   

EUR/USD

The EUR/USD pair has attacked multiple times over the most recent five days to close above at the level 1.19.

On Thursday, the currency pair timed a high of 1.1916 yet located at 1.1876. Comparable value activity was seen on Wednesday and last Friday.

The repeated removal above 1.19 approves the overbought on the 14-day relative quality record and recommends the ebbing of bullish energy. A comparative message is being resounded by Thursday's turning top flame the one with long wicks and a little body.

The pair will be situated at 1.1696 (Aug. 3 low), which whenever understood, would doubt a higher lows arrangement on the day by day outline and yield a decrease to 1.1422 (June 10 high).

The EUR/USD was previously close at the level of 1.1875. The Support and Resistance level of the pair will be 1.1804 and 1.1843.

FX Update – Ahead of NFP, USD finds a bid.

[IMG]

The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex (DXY) posted a two-day high at 93.16, extending the rebound from the 27-month low seen yesterday at 92.53. EURUSD concurrently retreated to a 1.1819 low, which is a pip shy of yesterday’s low and 2 pips shy of making it a big figure correction from yesterday’s 27-month peak. Cable posted a two-day low at 1.3098, drawing back from the 1.3187 five-month peak seen Thursday following the warily upbeat BoE outlook. USDJPY continued to ply a narrow range (less than 15 pips) around the 105.50 mark. Both the Aussie and Kiwi Dollars corrected moderately as the US currency firmed. AUDUSD, after first edging out a high at 0.7243, which matches Wednesday’s 18-month peak, ebbed to a low at 0.7196. USDCAD lifted to a three-day high at 1.3372.

Front-month USOil futures were soft for a second day, maintaining sub-$42.00 levels after posting a five-month high earlier in the week at $42.52. Gold prices corrected below $2,050.00 after printing a fresh nominal record high at $2,077.85. The ascent of gold has been a reflection of investor concerns over the risk of there being an eventual pop in inflation as a consequence of massive global fiscal stimulus efforts and massive global monetary uber-accommodation, although there has been scant sign of this happening thus far, with disinflation remaining in force and with much of the US yield curve and other sovereign benchmark yields either at or near record lows. In the mix is speculation that the Fed, and possibly other major central banks, may be amid a strategic shift to allow higher inflation.

The US Department of Labor’s weekly initial jobless claims will be THE key data release from the US later today, while labor market reports from Canada and the United States will be closely watched by market participants. The median forecast of economists polled by Reuters is for the Non-Farm Payroll to rise by 1,600,000, following the big miss in ADP number of 167,000 on Wednesday and the better than expected Weekly Claims yesterday of 1,186,000 compared to expectations of 1,400,000. The range in the Reuters poll estimates varies from -280,000 to 3,500,000. On the other hand, Canada is expected to add 400,000 jobs with the Unemployment Rate slumping lower to 11% from 12.3%.
