USD Down, GBP & Crypto’s Higher, CAD data.

[IMG]

The Dollar underperformed while the Pound outperformed and the Yen, diverging from its usual close correlation with the Dollar, was measuring as the second strongest of the main currencies. Global stock markets have been skittish, with European indices dropping and US equity index futures giving back gains in returning to near net unchanged levels.

[IMG]

Sterling has rallied quite strongly, showing a 1.0%+ gain on the Dollar at prevailing levels, as it rallied to test 1.3100. EURGBP is back under 0.9100 and down over 0.5% and testing 0.9050. The market reacted to remarks from EU trade negotiator, Barnier, that talks with the UK could continue “day and night.” There was also news that US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said that a trade agreement with the UK would come “reasonably soon.” The currency market evidently remains bullish on the EU and UK reaching an agreement, although the game of chicken between the two sides is continuing. Boris Johnson’s position is that the EU must fundamentally change its stance, while France’s European affairs minister Clément Beaune asserted yesterday that there would be “no new approach.” USDJPY tumbled under 105.00 en-route to printing a one-month low at 104.55. EURUSD lifted to a one-month high at 1.1868.

[IMG]

USDCAD posted a new low for a fourth consecutive day in pegging a six-week low at 1.3080 before recouping back above 1.3100 amid a near 2% drop in oil prices. USOil fell from the $41.88 highs seen on Tuesday to a low of $40.86 in London morning trade. The API reported a 600k bbl weekly inventory build after the close yesterday, versus expectations for a 2.0 mln bbl draw, which weighed on prices some. Inventories at the Cushing, OK storage hub were up by 1.2 mln bbls. Concerns over Covid related demand destruction, along with increased crude production from Libya, should keep a cap on prices for now. The EIA weekly inventory report is due at 14:30 GMT.

[IMG]

Canada’s CPI accelerated and retail sales grew, but both measures were on the tame side. CPI rose 0.5% y/y in September after the 0.1% gain in August. But CPI dipped -0.1% on an m/m basis (nsa) after the -0.1% slip in August and flat (0.0%) reading in July. CPI last rose on an m/m basis in June, rising 0.8%. The average of the three core CPI measures was 1.7% y/y, matching the 1.7% average seen in August. The CPI report remains consistent with ample slack in the economy, with a long way to go before activity returns to pre-pandemic levels across all industries. Meanwhile, retail sales rose 0.4% in August (m/m, sa) after a 1.0% gain in July (revised from 0.6%). Statistics Canada’s preliminary estimate is for little change in September retail sales. Sales have returned to more typical growth rates following the initial pop that followed the reopening of the economy — sales surged 21.2% in May after plunging -24.8% in April and falling -10.0% in March. Retail sales jumped 22.5% in June, an all time high growth rate. The ex-autos sales aggregate gained 0.5% in August. Both measures undershot expectations for stronger gains. Tame annual CPI growth along with the deceleration in retail sales is consistent with steady, accommodative policy from the BoC for an extended period.

[IMG]

Elsewhere, BTCUSD moved to 2020 highs after Paypal confirmed it will allow cryptocurrency buying, selling and shopping on its network.¹ The press release stated it “signaled its plans to significantly increase cryptocurrency’s utility by making it available as a funding source for purchases at its 26 million merchants worldwide. The company is introducing the ability to buy, hold and sell select cryptocurrencies, initially featuring Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin, directly within the PayPal digital wallet. The service will be available to PayPal account holders in the U.S. in the coming weeks.”

Volatility and US elections.

[IMG]

US Elections had been and always expected to be an event historically extremely volatile globally. Elections similar to other political or banking sector events are notably treated by market participants with anticipation and speculation. As discussed in our HF Markets Q4 Outlook, markets look to have already pricing in the possibility of Biden’s victory even though they overall maintain an increasing cautious optimism, holding US Dollar basket to 2018 low territory.

Election-year fund flows, 1993-2020
Historically, it has been noticed that during election years, market participants due to the heightened uncertainty, shift their investments into Money market funds instead from the safety of stock and bond funds, AS THEY waiting out. The 2020 is not any different but it’s been a unique one as we have seen an extreme money flow into currency assets in comparison with past election years, due the sluggish US and worldwide economic activity as the Covid-19 crisis resumes, the truce with China again which is under scrutiny, the lockdowns in several areas, the lack of additional fiscal stimulus from central bankers, Brexit frictions and the fear of double dip recession in Europe.

Year-to-date fund flows, through June 30

Source: BlackRock, with data from Morningstar as of June 30, 2020. Money market funds, stock funds and bond funds are represented by their respective US fund categories as defined by Morningstar.
That said, cash balance into money funds spike to $980 in 2020 as of June 30, given the large risk premia. However as soon as uncertainty recedes we might see equity market’s volatility and volume to spike again since they consider to be attractive and more stable assets in period which there are historically low interest rates. If we emphasize on the medium term thought it is expected that if current conditions sustained, market volatility will extend beyond Election days with any potential outcome, i.e. a Biden win and Democrat majority in Congress, a Biden win but split Congress, or a Trump victory with split Congress.

Meanwhile, a very chart from Wells Fargo Investment Institute, shows the USA500 implied Volatility index along with USA500 index performance prior and post the Election Day based on the election since 1988 with 2008 recession year excluded. This chart interestingly suggest that typically the USA500 tends to eased/consolidate a bit a month prior elections despite a extremely high volatility, while USA500 price continue their upwards move after the election day even though volatility declines significantly.

Dollar Dips as Equities escalate.

[IMG]

EURUSD, H1

The Dollar fell back concomitantly with rallying European stock markets and US index futures, which was likely a repositioning dynamic after declining over the last two weeks.

[IMG]

EURUSD rebounded quite strongly, rising back above 1.1850 from a three-day low at 1.1787. Preliminary October PMI data in the services and composite readings out of the Eurozone and UK undershot the median forecast of economists, but didn’t impact the Euro or Sterling. Technically, the H1 chart has moved over the 50-hour moving average (1.1835) to test R1 at 1.1852; above here is Wednesday’s high and R2 at 1.1885. Today’s pivot point is next support at 1.1830, below the 50-hour moving average. The MACD histogram has broken the zero line and the signal is starting to rise, although still south of the zero line, RSI is positive and trades at 64.50, Stochastics are moving into the OB zone.

[IMG]

Cable settled at near net unchanged levels around 1.3090-95 after dropping back from a high at 1.3124. The UK currency remains comfortably up on week-ago and month-ago levels against the Dollar and Euro, and others, with market participants anticipating a limited trade deal between the EU and UK. The two sides are amid intensive face-to-face discussions. The UK and Japan today signed the trade deal that was agreed in principle a month ago.

[IMG]

USDJPY is modestly softer after upside forays over the last day stalled at 104.93-95. At levels around 104.70, the pair remains down by 1% on the high seen on Wednesday. AUDUSD rallied to an eight-day high at 0.7158, floated by higher stock markets in Europe and an above-forecast composite PMI reading out of Australia. Global asset markets are likely to remain skittish, notwithstanding the rally today, with investors pondering the uncertainties presented by the surge in Covid cases in Europe and elsewhere, including now in many US states and in Canada, and which are leading to ever more restrictive countermeasures. The ongoing delay in new US fiscal stimulus and the event risk posed by the upcoming US elections are also in the mix. Regarding the elections, polls point to a Biden presidency, but it is less clear if his Democratic party can take control of the Senate. If not, then Congress will remain split at least until the mid-term elections in two years, which will limit the scope for policy changes and crimp Democrat ambitions for expansive fiscal policy.

US data later is topped by flash PMI data, Manufacturing numbers are expected to show a slight rise to 53.5 from 53.2 last time, whilst the more important and significant Services numbers are expected to increase by a single tick from 54.6 to 54.7. The data is due at 13:45 GMT.

Technical Analysis of EUR/USD

EUR/USD Price Puts the Gains at Level 61.8% Fib Again

The EUR/USD pairs seem on bulls that having a tough time that breaching a key Fibonacci to the hurdle for the fourth straight trading day.

The pair is currently trading at the largely unchanged on the day near at the level 1.1850 that have faced the rejection at the level 1.1859. The level will mark the level 61.8% Fibonacci hurdle this Wednesday.

The Fibonacci retracement level marks at the level of 61.8% to sell-off at the level of 1.2011 to 1.1612. If we have a look at the daily chart of the relative strength index the MACD histogram is biased bullish low at the level 1.1612. The Pair was previously closed at level 1.1859.

Support Level: 1.1831, 1.1829, 1.1825

Resistance Level: 1.1838, 1.1841, 1.1844

USD/CAD Price Shows the Better Bid at the Falling Trendline

The Canadian dollar is losing ground close by the losses in oil and pushing USD/CAD higher.

The currency pair is at present trading close to the level  1.3155, which is the opposite of the trendline associating Sept. 30 and Oct.15 highs. Be that as it may, a move over the askew obstruction line may not be sufficient to tempt more grounded chart driven buying. That is on the grounds that few key opposition levels are lined over the trendline obstacle. 

For example, the 50-day moving normal (MA) is situated at the level 1.3195, and a lower high is seen at 1.3260 (Oct. 15 high). Every day close over the lower high is expected to confirm a bullish inversion. Then again, the Oct.21 low of 1.3081 is the level to beat for the sellers. The Pair was previously closed at level 1.3121.

Support Level: 1.3149,1.3144, 1.3140

Resistance Level: 1.3158,1.3162, 1.3167

Events to Look Out for This Week.


[IMG]

A gigantic week is coming with FAANGs reporting their Q3 earnings, along with the rate decisions and monetary policy statements from three key Central Banks (ECB, BoJ, and BoC) as the second wave of Covid-19 is hitting the world with full force. Across the Atlantic, all eyes will be also on what emerges from the Brexit talks and how markets will reform in the final week prior to the US Elections. Focus will be on inflation data from the biggest economies in the world, including the US, China and Europe.

Monday – 26 October 2020
 

  • German IFO (EUR, GMT 09:00) – German IFO business confidence is expected to slip slightly to 92.9 in October after the jump seen in September to 93.4.
  • New Home Sales (USD, GMT 14:00) – New home sales are seen at -1.1% in September after a drop-back to a 1,000k pace from a 14-year high of 1,011k in August, versus a prior high of 965k in July. With the economy’s reopening, the recovery for new home construction and sales is proving much faster than for the rest of the economy, partly due to solid fundamentals going into the crisis, and even lower mortgage rates now.

Tuesday – 27 October 2020
 

  • ECB Bank Lending Survey (EUR, GMT 09:00)
  • Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to drop -0.7% in September with a 3.0% decline in transportation orders. The durable orders rise ex-transportation is pegged at 0.4%. A defense orders gain is pegged at 4.0%, following a -3.6% August correction. Boeing orders fell back to zero planes in September from 8 in August and zero in July.

Wednesday – 28 October 2020
 

  • Consumer Price Index (AUD, GMT 00:30) – Australian inflation data in Q2 was moderate but in line with projections and remained within the average rate of increase between 2% and 3% that the RBA targets over the medium term. The RBA trimmed mean CPI for Q3 is seen at 0.1% q/q.
  • Interest Rate Decision and Conference (CAD, GMT 14:00) – In September, the Bank of Canada maintained an aggressive stimulus posture, reiterating forward guidance and the continuation of its QE program until “the recovery is well underway.” However, the BoC removed its promise to “provide further monetary stimulus as needed,” keeping its commitment to hold rates at current levels and maintain the asset purchase program at the current pace. The policy rate was held steady at 0.25%, and it is expected to be maintained in this meeting as well.

Thursday – 29 October 2020
 

  • Interest Rate Decision and Conference (JPY, GMT 03:00) – The Bank of Japan remains pledged to do whatever it takes to support the recovery. The BoJ minutes last time highlighted that some council members are becoming concerned that virus developments will negatively impact the recovery. On the political front, PM Suga is expected to maintain policy continuity.
  • Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – Gross Domestic Product should advance in Q3 and reveal headline growth of 33.5%, with a reversal in the inventory trajectory from a record-liquidation rate of -$287 bln in Q2 to a $12 bln accumulation rate in Q3, as the inventory figures begin a long rebuild into early-2021.
  • Interest Rate Decision and Conference (EUR, GMT 12:45 & 13:30) – More than data releases, it is developments on the virus front that will have strengthened the dovish camp at the ECB. The number of new infections, but also hospital admissions and deaths, continues to rise across Europe, with Ireland just announcing a full lockdown until early December. Developments are adding to pressure on the central bank to act sooner rather than later, and the debate at next week’s ECB meeting will likely be lively, although on balance Lagarde is expected to hold fire for now and focus on a dovish presser that will lay the ground for a PEPP extension in early December.

Friday – 30 October 2020
 

  • Retail Sales and GDP (EUR, GMT 07:00) – The German Retail sales are seen at 4.2% y/y in September from 3.7% y/y last month. The final Gross Domestic Product in Germany for Q3 is seen at -8.9% q/q from 9.7%.
  • Gross Domestic Product and Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Fears of a double dip recession are on the rise, with preliminary Q3 GDP s.a. numbers likely to show the index down to 16.9% y/y from -14.7%. The Euro Area preliminary CPI is anticipated at -0.4% y/y in October with core reading at 0.5% y/y from 0.2% y/y last month.
  • Personal Income/Consumption (USD, GMT 12:30) – A 0.3% increase in personal income in September is anticipated after a -2.7% decrease in August, alongside a 1.1% climb in consumption after a 1.0% bounce in August.

USD improves, GBP Mixed, CB decisions & TRY.

[IMG]

The Dollar firmed up into the London open and beyond, paring declines seen earlier in pre-Europe trading in Asia. The move drove gold and oil prices lower, too, indicating there has been some depth in dollar buying, although the magnitude of movement hasn’t been great.

[IMG]

US equity index futures have managed modest gains after the S&P 500 closed with a 1.9% loss yesterday, though investor sentiment in global markets remains decidedly restive. Most Asian stock markets declined, and Australia’s ASX 200 equity index closed with a 1.7% loss in its worst single day performance in a month. Soaring positive Covid tests and the associated trend toward increasingly restrictive countermeasures, along with the risk of next week’s US election results being contested, and the delay in US stimulus relief, are keeping markets on edge. Overall strong Q3 economic data are being overlooked as markets look to what is appearing to be a grim winter ahead in the northern hemisphere, with risks of a double dip recession being factored in, especially in Europe. Amid this, the Dollar has been holding up, despite a narrowing in nominal US yields relative to peers in recent days, including Bunds and JGBs, revealing that the US currency is functioning as a safe haven currency again.

[IMG]

The USDIndex index lifted back above 93.00, though remains down on yesterday’s and Friday’s highs at 93.11-13. EURUSD tipped back to levels around 1.1800 after posting a high at 1.1836. USDJPY remained settled in the upper 104.00s in what could be termed a consolidation of the steep decline seen last Wednesday but has tested below S1 below to 104.60. The pair remains about 0.7% down from week-ago levels. Sterling continued to trade without direction, overall, holding over 1.3000 around 1.3020. EU and UK trade talks continue in London through to tomorrow before relocating to Brussels. They are reportedly working to a mid-November deadline.

[IMG]

Taking a step back, the currencies that are showing the biggest gains on the year-to-date are the ones that most would expect to have risen against the backdrop of the global pandemic crisis, being currencies of current account surplus economies, specifically ones that don’t have a high commodity export component. Thereby the Euro, Swiss Franc and Yen are the biggest gainers, while the dollar bloc and the likes of the South African Rand and Russian Ruble, among others, are showing the biggest year-to-date declines, save the politically savaged Turkish Lira. Turkey seems to be in dispute with all its neighbours and some further afield. The Central Bank holding rates last week has not helped its predicament – USDTRY printed a new all time high earlier at 8.1580.

[IMG]

USDCAD lifted out of a correction low at 1.3169, with oil prices, although up yesterday’s lows, coming under moderate pressure during the early London session. WTI benchmark crude prices are down 6.5% from week-ago levels, and prospects for a sustained rebound look to be limited given the supply glut and weakening demand as Covid-containing measures intensify across Europe and some parts of North America. This backdrop should keep USDCAD underpinned. The pair has been trending lower since March, though we have been noting trend derailing risks. A run to levels around 1.3500 and above seems possible, as the BOC decision tomorrow and the US Election next week remain the key immediate fundamentals .

Alphabet Q3 earnings: Focus on advertising revenue.

[IMG]

Once again the FAANGs excluding Netflix plan to report their earnings the same day within 30 minutes of each other. FAANGs illustrate 20% of the S&P500’s total value. Even though most of them face increasing antitrust scrutiny, all posted an impressive rally this year as their shares have surged and sustained close to record highs as the pandemic reckoned with online services such as shopping, streaming, clouds.

Hence in addition to our earnings articles, today we will focus also on Alphabet’s third quarter earnings for 2020 which will be reported along with the rest of the giants. Just a quick reminder, Alphabet Inc. is a holding company and Google’s parent company. The company’s businesses include Google Inc. (which is the largest one) and its Internet products, such as Access, Calico, CapitalG, GV, Nest, Verily, Waymo and X. The company’s segments include Google and Other Bets.

Alphabet’s report will be key after its first year-over-year revenue decline in company history in Q2 as a result of the lack of advertisement demand from the majority of businesses amid the economic slowdown globally. However the forecasts for Q3 have the company well positioned with the consensus recommendation “strong buy”, corresponding to the majority of the consensus recommendation from Reuters Eikon, as 30 out of 36 analyst firms recommend “buy” and “strong buy”, while only 6 recommend ‘hold’. Hence, no analyst firm is making a “sell” or “underperform” recommendation for the company.

GROWTH FOR ALPHABET INC

According to Zacks Investment Research and Reuters Refinitiv, the information service is expected to have $11.33 in earnings per share during the third quarter of 2020, which represents a yearly rise of 12% since the reported EPS for the fiscal quarter ending September 2019. Focus should also turn onto the revenues number which is projected to hit a 6% yoy spike, to around $42.8 billion, from the $40.49 billion reported last year. Net sales meanwhile are seen at $35.26 billion.

Revenue by business segment:
 

  • Google Search & Other (ad revenue, dominated by Google Search) – consensus of $24.96 billion*
  • YouTube ads – consensus of $4.38 billion*
  • Google Network (ad sales on third-party websites/apps) – consensus of $5.07 billion (down 4%)
  • Google Cloud – consensus of $3.32 billion*
  • Google Other (Play Store, hardware, YouTube subscriptions) – consensus of $5.11 billion*
  • Other Bets (Google Fiber, Verily, Waymo, etc.) – consensus of $153 million (down 1%)

Despite the huge diversification of its portfolio, Alphabet Inc earns nearly 71% of its revenue from advertising. Hence even though, the travel sector is still weak the majority of the analysts remain bullish on the advertisement services of Alphabet into Q3 given the slightly ‘temporary as it seems’ recovery that we have seen as the pandemic eased over the summer and business began reopening. Morgan Stanley stated also that they came into earnings season positive about the online ad market recovery but grew more optimistic following Snap’s blowout ad revenue beat and better-than-expected ad results from Verizon subsidiary AOL, Sirius-owned Pandora, and Interpublic Group.

The positive consensus for Q3 could also be driven by the shift of Alphabet to Google Play and YouTube to help its partners support their businesses. The majority of the analysts believe that we could see strength in YouTube ad pricing and the return of brand spending in its channel checks.

Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai however highlighted in his latest statements GOOGL’s focus on non-advertising segments. Like tech giant and its cloudspace rival Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT), GOOGL has the capacity and resources to strategically pivot, from a large “legacy” company to an aggressive emergent; in this case, from search to various ‘other segments’ offering potential growth.

Meanwhile, the risks that Alphabet faces ahead of the report is the solid competition from Amazon in advertising business and cloud services but also the cold headwinds on the earnings front in addition to emerging regulatory challenges. Coming off a not-so-stellar Q1 reporting season, GOOGL fell short in Q2, reporting its first ever year-over-year quarterly decline.

Earlier this week, the Justice Department, along with 11 Republican state attorneys general, filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google, alleging an unlawful monopoly on search services and advertising. US Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen called GOOGL, “the gateway to the internet” and said the company “has maintained its monopoly power through exclusionary practices that are harmful to competition.”

At this stage, we have to point out that a consensus recommendation, similarly to economic data forecasts, has a significant effect on the near-term stock price, as it represents a company’s wealth picture. Hence on every earning report, stock price is highly influenced by the comparison between the outcome and the expectations. The market tends to react positively if the outcome comes in better or at least in line with the forecast, while the price moves lower if the reported earnings miss expectations.

Technically, the current Google price action has posted a sharp rally since the March panic with the stock rebounding from the $1,000 area to record highs at $1,732.41. Currently the asset is traded at the $1,524 area which is just a 23.6% loss from all-years highs. The overall bias remains strongly positive even though medium term momentum indicators signal a potential pullback lower.

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

Impact of US Presidential Election on US Economy or Financial Markets

As we all know that the there are only a few days left for the US Presidential Election and the traders all around the world are not excited to win the race of the incumbent President Donald triumph of the Former Vice President Joe Biden.

Now all the traders now wondering what is the impact the US election might have on the US economy and the financial markets to trade in various Trading Products in the general.

Election Seems More Positive For Equities

If we looking back to the US President that will see the strong hand for the economy that is currently not the case for post-Corona Lockdown.

Look at the S&P 500 that will see on the positive at the higher leverage 9.6% compared to the 4.8% within the new president office. In case if we ignoring the aspect the strong economy is also driving the US equities at a higher level. What is unquestionably intriguing here is that a re-appointment of the US president brought about a positive value execution throughout the following year in over 70% of the cases (5 out of 7). The negative exhibitions under Eisenhower (- 14.3%/1956/1957) and Nixon (- 17.4%/1972/1973) were the main two events that were trailed by two downturns and were presumably foreseen in US values.

Reactions of Markets In US Presidential Election

Stocks

Markets ignore uncertainty, and truly the observation has been that another president may bring arrangements that could be unsafe for stocks. This occurred in 2016 when traders were sure that a Trump administration would start a market breakdown.

However, we are presently observing that equivalent dread drag in as individuals think about a Biden administration and the potential uncertainty it could cause. Biden is transparently more left-inclining, and his arrangements are required to be outfitted towards human needs as opposed to those of speculators and traders.

This supposition isn't helped by recommendations that Biden would invert Trump's tax reductions, and almost certainly, markets will ascend close by the possibly expanded possibility of a Trump triumph as we approach the political race.

USD

The estimation of a currency should mirror the soundness of an economy and its future possibilities. Many are anticipating that Biden should be less centered around the business sectors than his Republican adversary, so the dollar could debilitate in case of a Biden triumph.

Notwithstanding, this impact could be counterbalanced if Biden can improve relations between the US and China following quite a while of market tension. In this situation, it would be the Chinese yuan which may profit the most, with the exchange war having started enormous potential gain for USD/CNH.

Remember that if the more extensive business sectors fall on a Biden triumph including US stocks and files the dollar would probably prepare in the present moment to mirror a danger of the move as traders go to USD.

Gold

The possibility of a more broad financial strategy under Biden, and from an administration which is glad to leave on significant spending programs, could give a lift to valuable metals.

There's advice here as well, on the grounds that in the past valuable metals have additionally followed similar examples as the forex markets during seasons of emergency. Thus, any breakdown in value showcases that may originate from a change at the White House could drag gold lower in the quick time frame.

Furthermore, while Trump has, at last, observed the sort of improvement he would have sought after, a Biden win could bring about a more considerable upgrade bundle if the Democrats increase traction in Congress.

What do the Traders expect to See During the US Election?

All US markets will in general experience expanded unpredictability in the approach to an official political race, including USD forex sets, files, and items. That is on the grounds that numerous investments will try to secure situations before the outcome is reported using surveys to measure public conclusion. The point is to exploit the value moves that happen when the nation's political heading is confirmed.

It's likewise essential to recollect that the Covid pandemic is probably going to make critical unpredictability over the political decision time frame. A spike in cases could see US records and the dollar fall in esteem, as speculators move to cost in a decrease in shopper spending and financial yield. Then again, a decrease in the number of cases could see both files and the dollar ascend in esteem. Whichever way advertises move, you can be prepared to exploit a Best Forex Brokers Trading account.

Apple – Earnings Tonight.

[IMG]

APPLE, Daily
The world’s largest company, APPLE (APPL), report their 4th quarter earnings ending September 30th after the close of the New York stock market later today The consensus among analysts is for revenues of $64 billion versus $64 billion in Q4 2019 and earnings per share (EPS) of $0.69 (with estimates ranging from 0.54 to 0.8) versus $0.76 in the same quarter last year.

Apple hardware has been clearly hit from the disruption in the supply chains, starting with factories and shops in China and rippling out across the wider distribution and production facilities in Asia, Europe and then North and Latin America. iPhone sales are likely to miss estimates, but likely to be compensated for by increases in services and possibly other hardware.

Style, design and being the best premium product has always been at the core of what Apple does and the big move in recent years has been away from this dominance of hardware (even though the iPhone still accounts for over 60% of revenues) to invest significantly in services. The initial move was a partnership in 2015 with IBM and Cisco to try to break into the corporate market; this has been followed by Apple Pay and more recently the long awaited upgrade for Apple TV.

Apple TV+ was launched in November 2019. Initially it was only to be in the USA but it was then made available to 100 countries at an extremely competitive $4.99 per month. Apple has entered a very crowded video-streaming marketplace, which remains dominated by Netflix, but includes Amazon and Disney. Apple Services is a growing revenue stream within the technology giant and TV+ marks its latest attempt to diversify its dependence from the ubiquitous iPhone. The aggressive pricing structuring, undercutting its competitors, is a break from traditional Apple pricing models. However, the poor reviews and weak content in the first few months of launch have been disappointing. Disney+ with a huge back-catalogue and equally as aggressive pricing has been the new winner in the streaming wars. Netflix missed expectations last week, but as subscriber numbers continue to grow, what will we see for AppleTV+?

However, this quarter saw the delayed launch of the much heralded iPhone 12 with (finally) 5G capabilities. The buzz word from Apple is the dawn of a new “super cycle” of upgrades, as many in the companies home country of the USA have delayed upgrading awaiting the 5G model. However, 5G coverage in the US is patchy and sporadic and with a highly diffused network of poor signal areas. A lot could depend on the iPhone 12, is the pent-up demand there to be taken advantage of ? Early market gossip and market news suggest their is indeed that demand.

As ever, guidance and outlook will be key with some analysts expecting a hit on revenues because of the iPhone 12 delay and figures could be as low as $60.00 billion. (JP Morgan).

[IMG]

Overall the services and wearables business, including sales of AirPods and Apple Watch consumables is expected to show a hefty 17-24% growth year on year.

In the midst of the Pandemic, Apple announced the launch of the iPhone SE retailing at $399.00, the issue of the cut price iPhone proved a significant success and offered simple churn of existing sales rather than any enhancement of new replacement units. can signs of the upgrade cycle be announced tonight ?

[IMG]

The major Wall Street banks have price targets for the stock ranging from $150 down to $49. The consensus among 41 analyst is a target price of $122 with 23 of the 41 recommending a Buy or Strong Buy rating and none of the 41 with a Sell rating. The stock currently trades at $114.00.

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

FX Update – Election Uncertainty = Risk Off.

[IMG]
If there is one thing markets (all markets) hate, it’s uncertainty, and that’s what we have at the moment in both the Presidential and Senate races. As things stand at 08:30 GMT the morning after the USA Election 2020, there are 87 Electoral votes still available. Trump, with 213, needs 57, and Biden, on 238, needs 32, to reach the key 270 votes required to become President of the USA. States yet to declare results are:-
 

  • Pennsylvania 20
  • Michigan 16
  • Georgia 16
  • North Carolina 15
  • Wisconsin 10
  • Nevada 6
  • Alaska 3
  • Maine 1

The Senate (with 100 votes) stands at 47 each for the Republicans and Democrats with 6 decisions awaited.

So it’s very much risk aversion on a closer than expected US election, and Trump agitating the process with claims that his rivals are attempting to manipulate the results has driven the dollar higher on a safe haven bid, while US Treasuries have surged, driving the 10-year T-note yield down by 12 bp. The DXY dollar index rose by over 0.7% in making a high at 94.30. The S&P 500 E-mini has also racked up a 1% decline, reversing over half of the gain that the cash version of the index saw on Wall Street yesterday.

[IMG]

There is potential for the US to be in limbo for days as the closeness of the race means a drawn-out process of vote counting. Political pundits warned ahead of the election that if Biden won a close contest, the risk of Trump formally contesting the outcome would rise. This backdrop should keep the risk-off positioning theme in play, unless there is any clear-cut outcome. The Democrats are looking set to retain their dominance in the House, though it’s looking less certain that they will flip the Senate.

[IMG]
Elsewhere among currencies, EURUSD has seen volatile price action, dropping sharply from levels in the mid 1.1700s to a 1.1602 low before recouping to the mid 1.1600s. The pair still remains down by around 0.5% on the day. The biggest currency losers include the Australian Dollar, which is down by over 1%, and the likes of Mexican Peso, which is showing a 3% loss, and the South African Rand, which is nearly 2% lower versus the US Dollar. The Yen has been mixed, losing ground to the Dollar while holding steady versus the Euro and gaining on the more risk-sensitive, higher beta currencies. Amid all this, the Pound has been underperforming peer currencies, that is the Euro, Dollar, Yen, and others. Cable dropped over 1% to a 1.2915 low while EURGBP rallied out of two-month lows and back above the 0.9000 level. We have been earmarking Sterling as being a currency at particular risk given the upcoming drop in the UK’s terms of trade when the country exits the single market and customs union, the impact of which will be compounded by Covid lockdowns in the UK and across Europe.

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

NOW WHAT?

[IMG]

Global stock markets are rallying and sovereign bond yields, led by US Treasury yields, are tumbling as investors warm to the idea of a split government that could finally bring additional stimulus, but keep overall spending and debt under control and thus support a low yield environment for longer. Markets are discounting a Biden presidency and a split Congress.

HotForex · US Elections – NOW WHAT?

Although Democrats still have a narrow path to taking control of the Senate (there is a 48 versus 48 deadlock currently, with four seats left to be decided), most political pundits think it unlikely. At the same time Biden is the favourite to win the presidency, although there is still some way to go before vote counting will be complete, while Trump is mounting legal challenges. The general view is that Biden will reach the 270 winning electoral college vote threshold (he’s currently at 264 to Trump’s 214), as well as that Trump’s litigation efforts will come to naught.

Without the Senate, the Democrats big fiscal stimulus plans will be kept in check. This means both a reduced prospect for bond issuance and a reduced prospect for inflation, which is why Treasuries have been rallying strongly. The yield on the 10-year T-note has plunged by nearly 17 bp from the high seen just ahead of Tuesday’s election. The combo of lower yields, loose labour market conditions, the prospect of less competition for resources from the government, excitement about tech and the growing fad for WFH (work from home) stocks, and prospects for a Covid vaccine are among the factors underpinning Wall Street.

Biden vs Trump: US presidential election 2020 results

Hence since so far no one can celebrate a victory, you should focus on markets and how the scenario with US President Biden with a Republican Senate and a Democrat House might affect them in the near and long term future.

In the above scenario, there is firstly the concern whether US President Trump may chase some policies prior to Biden’s establishment in the White house. For example trade policy falls under the President in power, in contrast with fiscal policy and regulatory policy which fall under the US Senate in the face of a divided Congress. Another concern in a divided Government, in the long term, is the strive to achieve a sustainable fiscal position, as so far due to Covid-19 this has not been possible to accomplish. Meanwhile even without a final election outcome so far, questions have been raised in regards to prejudice, which would be corrosive to US competitiveness according to UBS.

However despite all this potential uncertainty and regardless if any of the above become true, the US economy is expected to show growth next year. According to Morgan Stanley,

"In short term, the business cycle dominates the political cycle, especially when we’re so early in a recovery. Secondly, a viable vaccine is now close to being approved. This approval, along with a better understanding of the disease and how to treat it with therapeutics, should allow us to manage a second wave better than the initial outbreak. That means by spring, we should be fully open in the economy, with safe participation by most people. The timing and pace of reopening is perhaps the most important variable and driver of economic activity next year. It’s also what financial markets continue to look forward to and why they’ve traded so well this year."

Not exactly like March, but definitely a sell off has been seen in equity markets due to the election and as the virus and restrictions remain headwinds. Despite the latest swing higher, we could state that so far the pandemic’s second wave might not have been discounted from global markets. Hence since the Election will be soon be out of the way, then if the pandemic is settled within the year Equity markets could be boosted as business will not suffer anymore. As this implies the reopening of economies globally, stocks – not solely technology ones, but all others from the tourism sector, services sector, industrial sector, etc – could finally recover.

Just to highlight however that there is the risk still of a divided Congress with Mr Biden in the House. This would limit his ability to deliver a big fiscal stimulus package as he desires to raise corporate taxes to 28%, after Mr Trump cut the rate from 35% to 21% in 2018. However the drop in taxes increased corporate profits, spurring a jump in stock buybacks that has helped to boost share prices over the past two years. These repurchases increase earnings on a per-share basis, which can boost the stock price.

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

NFP Friday on a US Election week!

 

[IMG]

 

Treasury Action: losses on Treasuries have accelerated even as stocks sag. Some of the action is a function of unwinding of some of this week’s big moves. But there’s some renewed concerns creeping back into the markets as the expectation for a split Congress is coming into doubt as special elections are likely necessary in January.

The US Dollar headed a bit higher after the jobs report, which revealed a higher than consensus NFP print, and saw the unemployment rate fall to 6.9% from 7.9%. USDJPY rallied to 103.48 from 103.35, while EURUSD dipped toward 1.1865 from 1.1880. Equity futures remain in the red, though off earlier lows, while yields ticked slightly higher before pulling back.

Events to Look Out for This Week.


[IMG]

Uncertainty and doubts soared in November as the virus surged, the FED and ECB have been unable to deliver more stimulus yet, and the US election is indicating a Biden presidency and a split Congress, with Republicans likely to retain the Senate and Democrats retaining the House. More volatility looks to be in store for next week as the market monitors economic data and events for signs of faltering growth in the US and Europe into a recession.

Monday – 09 November 2020
 

  • BoE Governor Bailey speech and BoE Haldane (GBP, GMT 10:35 & 14:00) – The BoE in November topped up its asset purchase program by a further GBP 150 bln. That was a pretty clear indication that the BoE is not expecting to go down the negative rate route and that the weapon of choice remains asset purchases, which will help the government to raise the funds necessary to finance the costly labour market support and stimulus program.

Tuesday – 10 November 2020
 

  • Consumer Price Index (CNY, GMT 01:30) – Chinese inflation data in September was lower at 0.2% m/m and 1.7% y/y. October’s reading however is expected to grow to 1.8% y/y as China shows recovery in key sectors.
  • Average Earnings (GBP, GMT 07:00) – Average Earnings excluding bonus are expected to have grown by 1.2% (3Mo/Yr) in September. The ILO unemployment rate is expected to have declined to 4.3% from 4.5% in the three months to September.
  • Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 10:00) – German ZEW economic sentiment for September is expected to have spiked to 67.7 in November. The Eurozone presents a picture of a split economy in general with manufacturing holding up and services struggling, and that effect will also widen the gap between Eurozone economies, as countries relying more on services and tourism will struggle much more than Germany.

Wednesday – 11 November 2020
 

  • Interest Rate Decision and Conference (NZD, GMT 14:00) – In September, at the last meeting, the RBNZ left its official cash rate and QE program unchanged, as had been widely anticipated, but stressed a willingness to take further stimulus measures if necessary while noting persisting downside risks to the economy, adding that currency strength remains a negative for NZ exporters. The RBNZ indicated it is actively working on a negative rate stance and the expansion of QE.

Thursday – 12 November 2020
 

  • Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 07:00) – The November BoE report took into account the resurgence of Covid-19 case numbers and the resulting restrictions in the UK and elsewhere and hence the GDP is expected to contract again in the last quarter of the year, largely due to “lower consumer spending on social activity, which was assumed to be partially offset by higher spending on other goods and services”. However as per the preliminary report, GDP for Q3 is seen to deteriorate further and present a still dismal -20.5% q/q contraction, and -22.4% y/y from -21.5%.
  • Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 07:00) –The final German HICP inflation for October is seen at -0.4% y/y from -0.5%.
  • Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 13:30) – The CPI headline and core are both expected to show with 0.2% October gains, following 0.2% gains for both in September as well. CPI gasoline prices look poised to be flat in October so they’ll have no impact on the headline. As-expected October figures would result in a headline y/y increase of 1.3%, steady from September.

Friday – 13 November 2020
 

  • Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 10:00) – The release of preliminary Q3 GDP numbers for the Eurozone two weeks ago confirmed that economic activity rebounded as lockdowns were lifted with most countries’ data actually coming in stronger than initially anticipated. Hence unchanged number are anticipated for this week’s reading as the activity levels remain far below those seen a year ago, while at the same time there is the resurgence in virus cases and renewed lockdowns across most major Eurozone countries.
  • Producer Price Index (USD, GMT 13:30) – As with PPI, a flat October headline gain is forecasted with 0.2% for the core, following 0.4% gains for both in September. The y/y core reading is assumed to rise to the 1.5% area into the turn of the year, with a downward hit from reduced aggregate demand but a boost for prices from supply disruptions. Supply constraints for some sectors will prove increasingly important in Q4.

USA100 holds under extensive pressure

[IMG]

Global stock markets are mostly higher, resuming yesterday’s stellar day on Wall Street as the indexes raced sharply higher on surprisingly positive vaccine news from Pfizer and BioNTech. News from Pfizer that its COVID vaccine is very effective prompted risk-on conditions globally, lifting stocks, yields and crude oil prices.

In the Asian market equities petered out amid the realisation that there are still considerable challenges ahead in the fight against Covid-19, however there is at least a light at the end of the tunnel now that will also reduce the pressure on central banks to add ever more stimulus. Currently however equities other than the European ones have settled in a comparatively narrow range.

The GER30 is up, after correcting some of yesterday’s sharp gains, but is holding above early lows. Other European indices are higher, with the UK100 gaining a further 0.8%, the CAC 40 up 0.5% and the Spanish IBEX 1.8%. The wider Euro Stoxx 600 has risen 7% over the past 5 days, but is still down 6% over the year, highlighting that there is still room for further improvement if and when it is confirmed that the virus situation is under control and Europe doesn’t face a further cycle of lockdowns and restrictions.

On the US side however the USA100 holds in the red after it closed yesterday -1.5% lower. The hopes for a more normal life saw investors pile into travel and leisure sectors, and flee the stay home sectors. Hence, the USA100’s gains lagged through for a second consecutive day and the index fell into negative territory. The USA100 was hit by the rotation out of defensive technology stocks into shares that will benefit most from an end to lockdowns.

The asset is in a dramatic shift this week towards negative sentiment. Selling pressure has ramped up and there has been a significant breakdown on the 20-day SMA and a reversal of more than 50% of last week’s gains. The latest higher high at 12,422 has been rejected suggesting that the 3-month descending triangle is still in place and consolidation is underway. Momentum indicators are now flat to negative in the daily chart, while intraday they are decisively negative, with 4-hour RSI consistently failing under 40 and MACD readying to turn negative. This suggests an outlook of selling into near term strength.

[IMG]

Hence now the November higher low and 100FE at 10,929 and 11,155 are the areas to be seen of overhead supply and a near term sell-zone for any bounces this week. Breaking down below the 10,929 and more precisely 10,700 (September low & 3-month support) could confirm a medium term bearish outlook with immediate support levels on the March-September upleg. There is initial resistance at 12,000 – 12,422 .

FX Update – November 11 – USD lifts, JPY drops, & GBP mixed

[IMG]

The Dollar has firmed against the Euro and other European currencies outside the case versus the Pound, with the UK currency posting two-month highs against both the Dollar and Yen, while holding steady-to-lower against the dollar bloc before rotating lower as the news broke that the mid-Nov trade deal deadline looks to be extended from November 15 into next week.

[IMG]

The risk-on mood has continued. Europe’s Stoxx 600 equity index rallied to its best levels in eight months, and S&P 500 E-mini futures were showing a gain of nearly 0.8% as of the early afternoon in London. The 10-year US T-note yield rose 1.5 bp to a new eight-month high at 0.979%. Commodities were mixed, however, though oil prices gained more than 3%.

[IMG]

In forex markets, Yen weakness and outperformance in commodity currencies and those of export oriented economies have been prevailing. USDJPY lifted back above 105.50, though remained shy of the highs seen on Monday, while AUDJPY and NZDJPY posted new two- and 10-month highs, respectively.

A pricing out of negative interest rate expectations in New Zealand following the RBNZ policy review today, which saw policymakers signal that the need for more monetary stimulus has reduced, boosted the Kiwi Dollar, which gained about 1% on the US Dollar and by more against the Yen. But biggest mover today, so far is EURNZD down some 1.5% from early day trades at 1.7350 to 1.7090 lows now.

The Japanese currency’s pronounced underperformance on Monday and continued softness marks a return to form with an inverse correlation of risk appetite in global markets. The success of Pfizer’s candidate vaccine for Covid in trials has been greeted as a game changer by investors. Bank shares, which hit record valuation lows this year, and so-called social-close stocks along with energy shares have rallied strongly, revealing that investors are looking across the valley of the prevailing predicament of Covid-related restrictions and economic weakness, and beyond to a return to normality in 2021. There is naturally some caution (known unknowns include long-term vaccine efficacy and population-wide safety), which has seen asset price gains lose momentum, though the massive fiscal and monetary stimulus that is in the works across the world, and the lower-for-longer monetary policy rubric at the Fed and other central banks (which enhances the value of corporate earnings), is a powerful tonic for higher valuations in cyclical assets. There are also a multitude of other credible Covid-19 vaccine candidates, aside from Pfizer’s, many of which have been reporting encouraging signs in advanced-stage testing.

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