Events to Look Out for This Week.


[IMG]
This will be a week of increased attention to the central banks with ECB and BoC on tap. The markets also remain focused on positive vaccine development and growing hopes for more fiscal stimulus before year end. Nevertheless, for Europe, a deal between the EU and UK is “imminent”, expected before the end of the weekend, according to an EU source cited by Reuters.

Monday – 07 December 2020
 

  • Gross Domestic Product (JPY, GMT 23:50) – Gross Domestic Product should advance in Q3 and reveal headline growth of 21.5% y/y and 5% q/q, with external demand, capital expenditure and private consumption rising.

Tuesday – 08 December 2020
 

  • Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – German December ZEW economic sentiment is seen to have declined at 35 compared to 39 in November.
  • Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Gross Domestic Product is seen stable at 12.6% growth in Q3 after the German Q3 GDP growth, released November 24, which was revised up to 8.5% (q/q, sa) in the final reading, from the 8.2% reported initially. It was an impressive bounce back from Q2’s -9.8% plunge, but the performance was not sufficient to compensate for the contraction that was triggered by lockdowns earlier in the year.

Wednesday – 09 December 2020
 

  • Consumer Price Index (CNY, GMT 01:30) – China’s recovery appears to be broadening, as a key manufacturing sentiment measure improved to its best level in three years during November while a non-manufacturing sentiment measure saw its best reading in eight years during November. CPI is expected to accelerate to a 0.8% y/y pace in November following the 0.5% growth last month.
  • Interest Rate Decision and Statement (CAD, GMT 15:00) – The reports so far are consistent with the ongoing recovery in Canada’s economy since the spring shutdown. Of course, the gain in November employment was the smallest monthly increase since hiring resumed in May, reflecting well anticipated moderation to a more sustainable pace as the reopening pop faded. However, the jobs and trade reports are consistent with no change in the BoC’s 0.25% rate setting expected at next week’s announcement, alongside a reiteration of the pledge to hold rates at 0.25% into 2023.

Thursday – 10 December 2020
 

  • European Council Meeting
  • Interest Rate Decision and Press Conference (EUR, GMT 12:45-13:30) – The European Central Bank (ECB) remains on course to ease policy further in December, with officials highlighting that despite positive vaccine developments, the recovery will need ongoing monetary and in particular fiscal support through 2021. Comments confirm that the ECB remains on course to extend stimulus at the December 10th meeting with asset purchases and longer-term loans the central bank’s main weapons. The ECB is expected to strengthen PEPP, but could also boost regular asset purchase programs and improve TLTROs, although the final package will likely also depend on what happens on the virus front. Even in the best-case scenario, PEPP is still expected to be extended through next year, and Lagarde has made it clear that the ECB is firmly focused on helping governments to extend fiscal support by maintaining favorable financing conditions.
  • Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 0.1% November gain for the CPI headline and a 0.2% core price rise are anticipated, following flat rates for both in October. CPI gasoline prices look poised to fall -0.4% in November, leaving a headwind for the headline. As-expected November figures would result in a 1.1% headline y/y increase, following a 1.2% October rise. Core prices should show a 1.6% y/y rise, as seen in October. With average inflation targeting, the Fed will face no pressure to withdraw accommodation any time soon.

Friday – 11 December 2020
 

  • European Council Meeting – Day 2
  • Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 07:00) – The German HICP inflation for July is anticipated to dip to -0.5% in November.

Technical Analysis on EUR USD or AUD CAD

EUR/USD Pair Seems Above 1.21 Risks Pullback to Hurdle Turned

EUR/USD is trading a sideways way around 1.2110 at press time, having confronted dismissal close to the level 1.2170 in the past three trading days.

Monday's drop confirmed the upturn weakness motioned by the long upper wicks connected to the past two everyday candles and an over 50 or overbought perusing on the 14-day Relative Strength Index.

The MACD histogram, a marker used to distinguish pattern strength and pattern changes, is currently outlining lower highs, additionally an indication of buyers weariness.

The stage looks set for a drop to the previous obstacle turned-backing of the level 1.2011 (September high). A nearby above 1.2178 (Friday's high) is expected to restore the bullish inclination.

AUD/USD Pair Goes To Lower to Indecisive Bounces

AUD/USD has recovered to the level of 0.7427 from the meeting low of 0.7410. The pair, nonetheless, is as yet caught in Monday's trading range of the level 0.7454 to 0.7372.

The Aussie saw two-route business on Monday and finished the day with minimal misfortunes, framing a day by day flame with long wicks and little body. That is an indication of hesitation in the commercial center.

The quick predisposition will stay unbiased as long as the pair is exchanging between Monday's high and low. A break above 0.7454 (Monday's high) would suggest bullish continuation and uncover the mental obstacle of 0.75. On the other hand, a move underneath Monday's low of the level 0.7372 would confirm a momentary bearish inversion and open the entryways for a remarkable pullback.

FX Update – December 10 – Sterling in the cross-hairs

[IMG]

GBPUSD & GBPAUD, H1
Sterling is under pressure after three hours of “lively and interesting” talks between UK PM Johnson and the European Commission President von der Leyen and their chief negotiators last night failed to find a way round “significant obstacles.” Talks will continue, and a new deadline has been set for Sunday, with the leaders promising that a “firm decision” will be made then, though UK foreign secretary Raab said that talks could still be extended. Either Johnson will have to decide whether the disruption of a no-deal is worth the risk, and/or von der Leyen will have to persuade EU leaders to budge during the group leaders’ summit today and tomorrow. The BBC’s Europe editor Katya Alder reported that EU diplomats are ready to go the extra mile, but contrary to the UK government view, the EU thinks the ultimate decision for deal or no deal lies primarily with the UK.

[IMG]

Our hunch is that a deal will still be reached, though Johnson will need some concessions from the EU as he will have to sell any deal to the influential faction of Brexit ideologues in his party. Sunday is the first anniversary of his 80-seat General Election win. The EU’s demands on fishing access to UK waters and governance, and in particular retaliatory measures if the UK diverged from EU rules, are on terms that Johnson singled out yesterday, just ahead of his trip to Brussels, that “no prime minister could accept.” He has some wiggle room, as he could argue that leaving the EU in some alignment of its rules is the pragmatic option in the Covid era, and that the UK could diverge from EU rules over time. A no-deal scenario would not come without potentially significant political risks to Johnson, and would see Scotland’s SNP step up demands for an independence referendum. The European Commission said it will publish “very narrow” no-deal contingency plans to maintain aviation and functioning borders.

[IMG]

The Pound has dropped over 0.5% against the Dollar in falling to the lower 1.3300s, and has seen a similar magnitude of decline against the Euro and other currencies. The USDIndex edged out a three-day high at 91.09, aided by the pound’s weakness, while EURUSD has lifted moderately after posting an eight-day low at 1.2059 yesterday. Elsewhere, the Australian Dollar has remained perky, posting a new three-month high against the Yen, and nearing the 29-month high seen against the US Dollar yesterday. Unsurprisingly GBPAUD is the biggest mover so far today (-1.30%). The pair rejected 1.8050 & closed under 1.8000 yesterday. The sell-off continued today from open, and has breached 1.7900 and trades below S3 to test 1.770. The fast EMAs aligned and are trending lower, RSI 29 and approaching OB, MACD histogram & signal line aligned lower, broke 0-line yesterday morning, Stochs OB from earlier. H1 ATR 0.0035, Daily ATR 0.0152.

FX Update – December 11 – USD & GBP Remain Heavy

[IMG]

EURUSD, H1

The Dollar softened against most currencies, with most stock markets and oil prices rising in Asia, although overall risk appetite in global markets is relatively more subdued compared to recent times. As the European session got under way some demand for the USD has been evident. The GER30 has tanked over 1% in European trading as a no-trade deal Brexit, potentially looms. Base metal prices are below trend highs, and US equity index futures are also flat or modestly lower. The risk of a no-deal outcome between the EU and UK in the Brexit endgame has risen, while in the US Democrat House Speaker Pelosi said that wrangling over a fiscal aid package could drag on through Christmas, just as Covid-19 containing measures are becoming more restrictive and extensive across the country. Add in the usual year-end wind down, along with depleted levels of cash on hand at global investors, and the scene looks set for a consolidation in global asset markets, if not a correction.

[IMG]

Among currencies, the USDIndex fell to a four-day low at 90.62, swinging the 32-month low that was seen a week ago at 90.48 back into scope, before a tick higher 90.80. EURUSD concurrently lifted to a four-day high, at 1.2163 and then declined to 1.2130. The pair’s 32-month low, seen last Friday, is at 1.2178. USDJPY fell back to levels around 104.00, correcting after yesterday posting a nine-day high at 104.59. AUDUSD posted a fresh 30-month high at 0.7571, and AUDJPY scaled to a new 20-month high. NZDUSD saw a 30-month peak, too over 0.7100. USDCAD remained heavy, but remained above the 32-month low seen yesterday at 1.2704. As for the Pound, the currency has been holding up well so far, but looks vulnerable. UK PM Johnson said that “in all candour that the treaty is not there yet,” while stating that he is willing to return to Brussels, or visit Berlin and/or Paris, to get a deal over the line. The leaders have set a deadline of Sunday, though discussions could extend through next week if a deal has been agreed by the end of the weekend. Markets still expect a deal, but acknowledge the risk for a no-deal. Bookmakers Willian Hill are currently given odds with an implied probability of 61.9% for a no-deal outcome, with a 45.5% chance given for a deal being struck, which is down from the 62% that was given ahead of Johnson’s meeting with EU’s von der Leyen on Wednesday. We would anticipate a sharp decline in the Pound in the event of a no-deal scenario.

USD/CAD Pair Teases to Bear Below at the level By 100 HM

For a situation where the USD/CAD traders keep the reins past-1.2700, the mid-2018 lows close to the level by 1.2630 will be at the center of attention.

In the interim, 100-HMA and highs set apart since last Monday, separately close to the level by 1.2785 and 1.2835, can monitor the pair's momentary potential gain.

In the event that all the USD/CAD buyers return after 1.2835, the 1.2900 limit and the month to month top close to the level  1.3010 will be on their radars.

[IMG]

Governor Lowe said in his statement that the RBA doesn’t expect to lift the cash rate for at least three years. There was no dissention from the official line and little new is likely from the minutes.

FX Update – December 15 – Rangebound for now.

[IMG]

GBPUSD, H1

Narrow ranges have been prevailing among the main Dollar pairings and associated cross rates. This has been seen against a backdrop of sputtering global stock markets. Data showing Chinese industrial production rising 7.0% y/y in November, a 20-month high, along with a rise in retail sales, didn’t have much impact. Commodities have also been lacking direction after recent gains.

[IMG]

The surge in new positive test results for Covid in northern hemisphere countries, ranging from Japan and South Korea, to Europe and the US and Canada, along with more restrictive measures (tighter measures are due to be implemented in London from tomorrow, for instance), is being cited in market narratives as driving the risk-cautious sentiment in markets. While the bigger-picture outlook remains bullish, the view across the valley is being fogged out by the seasonality driven rise in coronavirus cases. The usual year-end wind down in investor commitment is also afoot. The roll-out of Covid vaccination programs in the months ahead won’t be sufficient to make much impact over the upcoming winter months.

[IMG]

The Brexit endgame, meanwhile, remains in focus, though the negotiation teams are being tight lipped and it is difficult to be sure exactly what the state of play is. The Pound has steadied after rallying yesterday. We do know that both sides have offered concessions, and have entered a post-brinkmanship, pragmatic phase, focused on a ‘managed divergence’ solution. The best market guess is that an agreement will be announced by the end of the week, however a no-deal outcome can’t be ruled out and remains a real possibility.

On Friday I wrote that “UK data flow recently has been remarkably resilient in the face of the pandemic and the ongoing Brexit uncertainty. Today data is expected to show unemployment stable at 4.8%, claims increasing significantly to 50,000 and earnings slipping to under 1.0%.” The results earlier were much darker than expected, as official unemployment ticked higher to 4.9% but this hides the significant number of people (3.7 million) who remain furloughed. The claims did indeed increase, and significantly more than the 50,000 that were expected, coming in at 64,300. Although Earnings did beat expectations at 2.7%, due to one off bonus payments, the outlook remains subdued due to the new lockdown tier 3 regimes, set to cover an additional 10.8 million people, 61% of England’s population – or 34 million people – under the toughest restrictions from Wednesday.

FX Update – December 16 – Perky PMIs & a weaker USD.

[IMG]

EURUSD, H1

Eurozone & UK Dec. PMIs were generally stronger than expected, with the exception of UK Services. EU Services sentiment in particular rebounded, even in Germany, which is going into a stricter form of lockdown today, which will see shops closing. The Eurozone Services PMI still suggests contraction at 47.3, but that is a marked improvement compared to the reading of 41.7 in November. Manufacturing sentiment rose to 56.6 from 55.3, which left the composite at a 2-month high of 49.8, which effectively suggests stagnation rather than contraction. Markit commented that due to the improvement in December, the fourth quarter downturn is looking less steep than initially feared. Still, as Markit also highlighted – while the prospect of vaccinations is underpinning future expectations, in the near term the environment remains challenging for many consumer-facing companies.

[IMG]

In the UK Markit noted that “The UK economy returned to growth in December after the lockdown-driven downturn seen in November, adding to signs that the hit to the economy from the second wave of virus infections has so far been far less harsh than the first wave in the spring.” The recovery lacked vigour, however, as the service sector remained under particular strain, contracting marginally again as ongoing social distancing measures due to tiered lockdowns continued to hit many parts of the economy. Manufacturing numbers were 57.3 vs 55.9 with last month’s number being increased to 55.6, while the more important Services slipped below the key 50.0 level to 49.9 and missed expectations of 50.5, with last month’s data also being upgraded to 47.6, but remaining historically very low.

[IMG]

The USDIndex has remained heavy, testing a new 32-month low at 90.05. EURUSD has concurrently been holding firm, breaching its 32-month highs at 1.2178, to push to 1.2210. USDJPY, now amid its fourth down day out of the last five, has ebbed to a five-week low at 103.25. As we have noted before, real interest rate differentials are imparting a bias for the Yen to gain on the Dollar, albeit modestly. The nine-month lows, seen last month at 103.17-19, are back in scope. There looks to have been a degree of position trimming in CADJPY, which has been a popular long lately, being a strong correlate of the reflation theme in global markets. The cross is showing a decline of nearly 0.5% on the day so far. USDCAD, meanwhile, has lifted back above 1.2700 to 1.2745 after yesterday printing a 32-month low at 1.2686. While oil prices have been remaining perky, with Brent benchmark prices sustaining gains above $50, upside momentum has been abating. OPEC supply is set to increase, in addition to recovering supply out of Libya, while Norwegian and US supply are also increasing. There are also expectations for Iran to strike a deal on its nuclear program with the Biden administration, which could lower sanctions that have been stifling oil exports out of the country. These supply fundamentals, along with the demand-sapping virus containing measures in many of the major northern hemisphere economies, look to be setting up oil prices for a year-end correction after six consecutive up weeks. Elsewhere, the Pound has remained buoyant, with markets factoring in prospects for the EU and UK to reach a future relationship deal as soon as this week. There hasn’t been much news from the negotiating teams, though this in itself is being taken as a sure sign that progress is being made after the EU’s von der Leyen said that a “narrow” path to agreement has come into view. Cable has printed a 12-day high at 1.3519.

Technical Analysis on EUR USD or GBP USD

EUR/USD Pair Stuck on familiar Range to US Stimulus Eurozone PMIs

The EUR/USD pair gained some of the positive traction that exit to the trading range of 1.2059 to 1.2178. The pair is currently traded at the higher level 1.2162 that traded near the 32 month goes against the majors.  

The US Congress pioneers' guaranteed to break the long-standing stalemate on the Covid help bundle during the Asian exchanging hours, welcoming selling pressure for the place of refuge US dollar. Up until this point, be that as it may, the policymakers have stayed quiet on how conversations are advancing.

More delicate than-anticipated PMIs could have a heading on EUR/USD, all the more in this way, as its specialized outlines are giving indications of bull weariness around the level 1.2170. The US Retail Sales information and the Federal Reserve rate choice could likewise impact the pair.

GBP/USD Pair Goes to Uptrend bulls at the level by 1.3400

GBP/USD pairs decline to the intraday low of 1.3436 down at 0.08% during this early Wednesday. Moreover, the traders stay remain positive to the currency at the downside to the two-day runup.

While bearish MACD and disappointments to cross the December 09 high of 1.3478 shows the additional disadvantage of the statement, a joint of 10-day SMA and a falling pattern line from December 04, around at the level 1.3375, will confine any further shortcoming.

In the event that at all the 1.3375 help union neglects to stop GBP/USD dealers, an upward slanting pattern line from September 25, at 1.3157 now, will be in core interest.

Then again, potential gain freedom of the one-week high close to 1.3480 will assault the month to month top encompassing 1.3540.

During the GBP/USD ascend past-1.3540, the 1.3600 and highs set apart during May of 2018, around 1.3615, will be the way to follow.

Sterling & the BoE Preview.

[IMG]

GBPUSD, Weekly

The BoE’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) convened for its two-day December policy meeting yesterday, with the announcement out today (12:00 GMT). No changes to policy settings is the universal expectation, which would leave the repo rate at 0.10% and the QE total unchanged at GBP 875 bln. The central bank is clearly keeping a close eye on Brexit talks, and with a deal looking much more likely than at the same time last week, the central bank is likely to hold its horses, especially as vaccinations offer a bright spot for next year. Things can still go wrong though and the BoE will want to keep its options open for now. A no-deal situation would put the BoE into crisis-response mode, and would increase the chance of the central bank implementing a negative interest rate policy. Still, the BoE’s Financial Policy Committee (FPC) affirmed on Friday that UK banks are able to withstand the shock of no-deal on top of the impact of the Covid pandemic. For many a negative interest rate policy in the UK is not the antidote and should be kept firmly in the toolbox, however, as with the protracted Brexit Withdrawal agreement and the down-to-the-wire trade deal (or no-deal), anything is possible and never rule anything out.

Sterling has the bid currently and expectations are that something will be agreed and the final “fishing” issue can be put to bed. Last week, EU sources talked of a deal by December 18 (tomorrow), which still provides enough time for draft legislation to be approved by year end. Then earlier this week stories started to circulate of “partial” ratification. The fudge continues.

Sterling remains bid versus the weaker USD and JPY, on the back foot versus the Antipodeans, moving higher versus the CAD & CHF and back to test 90.00 versus the Euro. The new 2020 high for Cable and the break and breach of 1.3500 could see an extension to initial 1.3680 and 1.4000 in the weeks ahead, should the Greenback continue to unwind. Key support is the 20-week moving average at 1.3100 and the 200-week moving average at the key psychological 1.3000.

Technical Analysis on EUR USD or GBP USD

EUR/USD Pair Prints Higher to Close Since from April 2018

The EUR/USD is closed this Wednesday seems at the level of 1.2196. It goes to the daily highest close to the 32 months that fall near at the level by 1.2170 to the long upper wicks that attached to the daily candles that created the opened doors to the continuation rally to the level by 1.16.

A bull banner breakout on the 4-hour outline shows the easiest course of action to the higher side. Up until this point, a persuading break above 1.22 has stayed slippery. The cash pair is as of now exchanging close to 1.2194, having dismissed at the level by 1.2113 during the overnight trade.

Obstruction is seen at 1.2414 (April 2018 high), trailed by 1.2558 (February 2018 high). The backing is situated at 1.2125 (Wednesday's low), under which, the center would move to 1.2011 (Sept. 1 high).

GBP/USD Price Goes Bulls to Three-Month On Rising Channel

GBP/USD buyers assault an intraday high at the level by 1.3512, up 0.18% on a day, during Thursday's Asian meeting. The link rose to the new multi-month high the earlier day while remaining inside a climbing pattern channel development sets up since mid-September.

However, a rising pattern line connecting highs set apart from September 01, at 1.3546 now, challenges the pair's further potential gain.

Subsequently, the GBP/USD costs may observe a pullback except if effectively crossing the prompt opposition line and the upper line of the expressed channel, separately around 1.3545 and 1.3555.

For a situation where the bulls figure out how to cross the 1.3555 blemish on a day by day shutting, an upward slanting pattern line from March 2020, close to 1.3660, will be at the center of attention.

On the other side, 1.3515 and December 11 top close to 1.3325 can offer prompt backings during GBP/USD pullback.

It should, in any case, be noticed that the bears are more averse to quit fooling around except if seeing a disadvantage break of channel uphold, at 1.3158 at this point.

FX Update – December 18 – USD stops falling, Brexit flounders on fish?

[IMG]

EURUSD, H1

The Dollar has finally found its feet, concomitantly with global equity markets coming off the boil. Some market narratives have pinned this on news that Pfizer will under-deliver vaccine doses to the US next week, though the Moderna vaccine will reportedly win FDA approval today/Saturday. News that the US is blacklisting more Chinese companies has been in the mix, too. The wind down into the Christmas and new year holiday period may be a further factor, which can inspire investors to put on hedges, if not trim positions.

[IMG]

The USDIndex has lifted back towards 90.0, which follows a four consecutive days run lower that culminated yesterday with a 32-month low at 89.62. EURUSD has ebbed, although only modestly, to the the mid 1.2250s. The commodity-correlating dollar bloc currencies have softened, while USDJPY has lifted back to the mid 103.00s after posting a nine-month low yesterday at 102.88. The BoJ extended its Covid measures, including increased asset purchases and a corporate lending facility, out to next September from March, while leaving the major monetary policy settings unchanged. This met market expectations, while Governor Kuroda reaffirmed the central bank’s pledge to ease monetary policy further if necessary.

[IMG]

Elsewhere, the Pound has been in correction mode after a four-day ascent. Cable has tumbled back toward 1.3500 after peaking at a 31-month high yesterday at 1.3622, though continues to show a net gain of well over 2% from week-ago levels. UK PM Johnson spoke with the EU’s von der Leyen late yesterday, and reportedly warned that negotiations would collapse unless the EU moves “substantially.” Fishing rights remain a sticking point, while the state aid issue has also resurfaced as a difficulty, though it’s difficult to know exactly where negotiations are, and it might be that the UK government is tactically maintaining the maximum threat to leave without a deal, sensing that Brussels is genuinely worried about what an untethered UK might do. Reuters cited EU sources, meanwhile, saying that a deal is possible in the coming days, though difficult, while Ireland’s deputy PM Varadkar said both sides were edging towards a deal, and EU chief negotiator Barnier said that a deal by as soon as today is “difficult but possible.” The European Parliament yesterday demanded that a text of an EU-UK agreement must be made available by this Sunday for there to be sufficient time for them to scrutinize it before a ratification vote ahead the December-31 deadline.

[IMG]

Later there is Canadian Retail sales and the US current account and leading index indicator ahead of the December Quadruple witching where stock index futures, stock index options, stock options, and single stock futures all expire simultaneously. The last big trading day for many.

Events to Look Out for This Week.


[IMG]

Holiday-thinned staffing in Europe, Asia and the US in the end of the week ahead will severely curtail trade, though what this means for volatility is anyone’s guess. The most of the central banks maintained their accommodative policy settings so far. However the near term outlook still remains challenging but the prospect of vaccination programs in Europe, UK and US and for the UK the chances of a Brexit deal mean there are both upside and downside risks for next year, with the outlook unusually uncertain. News that the US is blacklisting more Chinese companies remains in the mix as well.

Monday – 21 December 2020
 

  • PBoC Interest Rate Decision (CNY, GMT 01:30) – The People’s Bank of China in this meeting should provide guidances on the next move in Loan Prime Rates. It is expected to continue to maintain flexibility in the exchange rate, stabilize market expectations, and keep the yuan basically stable at reasonable and balanced levels.

Tuesday – 22 December 2020
 

  • Retail Sales (AUD, GMT 00:30) – The preliminary Retail sales are seen diving at -0.6% m/m in November from 1.4% last month.
  • Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 07:00) – Gross Domestic Product is seen stable at 15.5% q/q growth in Q3 and -9.6% y/y. Like in the Eurozone, production numbers expected to remain pretty good, even though the rebound started to slow down due to the November lockdowns.
  • Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 13:30) – A slight boost is seen in Q3 GDP growth to 33.2% from 33.1%. The revised Q3 GDP figures should still show a quarter with dramatic rebounds for residential investment and equipment spending to notably robust levels, and out-sized Q2-Q3 gyration in both exports and imports that left big Q3 gains, and hefty recoveries in consumer spending. Government spending received an initial lift in Q2 from spending with the CARES Act, though most of this spending was transfer payments that don’t enter government purchases, and we saw a Q3 pull-back in government spending that should extend through Q4 and into 2021.

Wednesday – 23 December 2020
 

  • Trade Balance (AUD, GMT 00:30) – The preliminary trade deficit of Australia is currently at $7,456M.
  • Personal Spending and Consumption (USD, GMT 13:30) – Personal consumption is expected to show a -0.2% headline decline in November after a -0.7% drop in October. The projected November income decline reflects a 0.6% rise in compensation, but an ongoing unwind of jobless benefits and weakness in rental and proprietor’s income, as the April income boost from the CARES Act continues to unwind.
  • Michigan Index (USD, GMT 15:00) – US consumer sentiment climbed 4.5 points to 81.4 in the preliminary December reading. That’s much better than expected but the move back up to the 89.1 level from March has been restrained by various headwinds, with the spike in the virus and renewed lockdowns the current difficulty.

Thursday – 24 December 2020
 

  • Christmas Eve – Early close for Major Markets
  • Durable Goods and Defence orders (USD, GMT 13:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to rise 1.4% in November with a 2.9% climb in transportation orders, after a 1.4% headline orders rise in October that included a 1.4% transportation orders gain. The durable orders rise ex-transportation is pegged at 0.7%, after a 1.3% September rise. A defense orders gain is pegged at 4.2%, following a 24.0% October bounce. Boeing orders rose to 27 planes in November after two months at zero. The vehicle assembly rate is seen ticking up to 10.7 mln in November from 10.6 mln in October, versus a 0.1 mln trough in April. Durable shipments should be flat, and inventories should be 0.3%.
  • Tokyo CPI and unemployment rate (JPY, GMT 23:50) – The country’s main leading indicator of inflation is expected stable presenting a decline at -0.7% y/y in December ex Fresh Food. The unemployment rate is also stable at 3.1% for November.

Friday – 25 December 2020
 

  • Christmas Day – Nearly all major Markets closed

Technical Analysis on XAU USD

XAU/USD Pair Seems on the Road Recovery at Battle 50 HMA

The XAU/USD is witnessed in a good way to seems in the business on this Monday. The traders danced to the optimism of the agreement of the US stimulus deal on the first half of the day.

Then, in the last piece of the day, gold drooped almost $50 from week by week highest points of $1907 to $1855 levels on the account of another Coronavirus strain found in the UK, which fuelled hefty hazard avoidance no matter how you look at it and siphoned the greenback against its significant adversaries.

The prompt help is seen at the 21-HMA, presently at $1880, beneath which the upward-slanting 100-HMA at the level by $1876 could be tried. Further south, the basic 200-HMA at $1856 will be a difficult one to figure out for the bears.

On the other side, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) still holds over the midline, saving the inclination for a bounce-back flawless.

Acknowledgment over the 50-HMA obstruction could uncover the $1900 level. The following opposition anticipates at Monday's high of $1907.

EU vaccinations & Brexit talks.

[IMG]

Τhe Dollar has traded moderately firmer, and the Pound has drifted lower, though the US currency has remained comfortably above its Monday highs while the UK currency has remained well off the lows it saw yesterday.

News that the EU has rejected the UK’s latest offer on fishing (which was a 35% reduction in the EU’s fishing quota from UK waters following a five-year transition period) weighed on the Pound. Brussels is reportedly demanding only a 25% quota reduction. Politico-Europe reported that UK PM Johnson and EU Commission President von der Leyen had a phone conversation yesterday to discuss a compromise on fish, and while the UK’s latest offer appears to have been rejected by the EU, it is positive that both sides are still talking. At the same time France and the UK are negotiating a way out of the current border disruption, with truckers to be tested at the borders. There doesn’t seem to be an agreement on the details – i.e. who pays where for what – but again, there are at least discussions on how to move forward, which helped sentiment to stabilise somewhat.

It is still expected that a deal will materialise before the looming year-end deadline, given the win-win versus lose-lose stakes, and given that intense discussions are continuing, along with reports from sources close to the negotiating teams that a landing zone for an accord is visible. Another consideration that has come to light is that EU law does not stipulate that ratification by Parliament is imperative and that an agreed deal could be applied provisionally (as highlighted by the BBC’s Katya Alder). This is important to know after the European Parliament’s deadline for the text of deal to be presented by Sunday just gone was missed. As for ratification in UK parliament, members are on standby to be recalled from their Christmas recess, and a deal could be ratified in just a single day given the government’s strong majority.

[IMG]

European stock markets rebounded after a mostly negative session in Asia. US equity index futures recouped earlier declines, and were near net unchanged as of the early London afternoon. News that the US Congress has passed the $900 bln Covid-19 relief package boosted sentiment, along with news that the EU will commence its Covid-19 vaccination program just after Christmas.

EU vaccinations to start after Christmas. Regulators cleared the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine yesterday and the EU has already pre-ordered EUR 200 bln of the vaccine earlier in the year and this month also acted on the option to purchase additional EUR 100 bln that was part of the original deal. Not all of these doses are immediately available as production is slower than demand. The 300 million also won’t be sufficient for the 450 million EU inhabitants and officials will regret that the EU didn’t act on the offer in July to pre-order 500 million. Still, at that point it was not clear that Pfizer would win the race and as pre-orders were a large incentive to speed up developments, the EU decided on a wider spread, with provisional orders for more than 2 bln doses of candidate vaccines from a range of companies. Next in line is Moderna, with the European Medicines Agency set to meet on January 6 to discuss the vaccine, for which the EU has placed orders for 160 million. Still, it will take a while until vaccinations are rolled out properly – not just in the EU and if the virus mutates and becomes more infectious that also means a higher uptake is necessary to reach herd immunity.

In currency market, GBPUSD stabilised after rolling the roller coaster on Monday. Although GBPUSD managed to rise again to near 1.3500 overnight, the rise is seen to be quite limited for now. Cable found support the past few hours above 1.3400 after it tested daily pivot at 1.3390. The 50-period SMA and 200-period SMA clashed at 1.3400. If daily pivot is rejected then S1 1.3266 will be a key support. Monday’s highest price of 1.3498 remains a significant resistance followed by a pivot of R1 at 1.3577. The Bulls need strong momentum above 1.3500 to maintain their dominance.

Coca-Cola cuts staff.

[IMG]

The decline in sales due to the coronavirus outbreak and the operations that some governments have applied to many local restaurants and entertainment venues that operate at a significantly reduced capacity, have led Coca-Cola to consider the idea of eliminating 2,200 positions of work in all the headquarters that the company has around the world. At the end of last year, there were around 10,400 employees in the United States, of which another 1,200 were cut, representing approximately 12% of the workforce cuts, while in Atlanta where the company is based, 500 jobs will be eliminated. The company had announced this plan during the summer, when it also announced that it would offer acquisitions to 4,000 workers in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.

For the third quarter, the company’s revenues decreased 9% to $ 8.7 billion, while in the session on Tuesday, December 15, Coca-Cola shares rose 1.77% with a value of $54, $22, at the last close the company was $ 57.27 , 20.90% below its 52-week high of $ 60.13. Sales reflected an increase of -4.5%, where the company’s growth estimates for the current quarter and the next are -6.8% and -2%respectively, and the year-on-year growth of quarterly revenues decreased by 9% to 33.47B.

The company could continue to experience consequences in the long term because the coronavirus pandemic may leave some side effects, such as people increasingly turning away from sugary drinks. However, when the pandemic ceases and people can feel freer to leave their homes, the consumption of beverages in restaurants may increase; in any case, Coca-Cola continues to be the leader in the non-alcoholic beverages market, therefore it can be expected that during the next few years its annual growth rate could be 6.8%.

Pending its next earnings report, Coca-Cola is projected to report earnings of $ 0.41 per share, representing a 6.82% year-on-year decrease, which could lead to its consensus estimate calling for quarterly revenue of $ 8.69 billion, less than in the prior year period, while full-year earnings estimates could be $ 1.88 per share, with revenue of approximately $ 33.06 billion.

Currently, the price of Coca-Cola follows an ascending channel although it presents a double top with failure of highs at its level of 54.00 very close to Fibo 78.6% at 54.79, the price could approach the Fibo level 38.2% at 51.80 to break this support, maybe pull back to it and continue to the lower supports in the 80-period SMA that is only slightly above the 61.8% Fibo level at 50.82, coinciding with the bullish guideline of the channel. Breaking these supports would end up closing the gap at the 61.8% Fibo level coinciding with the psychological level at 50.08.

FX News Today | 24 December 2020.

Wall Street rallied overnight, despite some disappointing US data. Stimulus hopes and the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines supported the market. Energy, financials and healthcare sectors outperformed, while tech issues lagged. Core European bourses were higher, with the GER30 up 1.26%, and the UK100 underperforming, adding 0.66%, though held back by a firmer Pound. Treasury yields climbed amid bearish momentum from European bonds. Thinning holiday conditions exacerbated the moves and the break of key levels added to the selloff.

Gilts led a sell off in EGBs amid rumors that the UK and the EU are getting close to a post-Brexit trade deal. With Europe still firmly in the grip of Covid-19, the chance to avoid a disruptive no-deal scenario clearly would be extremely helpful, although even with an agreement no-tariff trade barriers will go up at the start of next year, which will add to an already difficult situation.

UK, EU press conferences likely expected today. The timing on press conferences may slip by a couple of hours.

Market Update – December 29 – The final few days.

[IMG]

EURUSD, H1
US stock futures are in the green with gains of 0.45% to 0.65% after President Trump signed the $2.3 tln spending bill that will fund the government through to September 2021 and which also includes the $900 bln pandemic relief package. Further supporting investor sentiment has been the Brexit deal — while not ideal for either side, it eliminates the hard Brexit result that was most feared. These factors, and the positive developments on vaccines, should smooth out trading over the rest of 2020, though thin holiday trading could make for some choppy price swings. All three major US markets closed at new all-time highs yesterday.

Earlier, the JPY225 closed up an impressive 2.7% and closed over 27,000 for the first time since 1991. End of year portfolio rebalancing, profit taking and accounting all conspire to boost equities in the final trading days of the year. The 161.8 Fibonacci extension of the March sell-off sits at 28,800. The MACD has a rising signal line and histogram, the weekly ATR remains over the 500 point and although the RSI has been technically in the overbought range for over 6 weeks, it is still moving higher and currently trades around 78.00. The JPY225 is one of the best performing assets for 2020 of all the ones we monitor; for more details of what the long term Weekly & Monthly charts might be suggesting for the next few months, join me tomorrow in our “2021 – The Year Ahead in Charts” webinar.
