Market Update ‚Äď May 3.


eu_update_1200x628-e1567669197104-696x339.png Trading Leveraged Products is risky
Market News Today¬†‚ÄstA month-end bid, and rotation out of equities has supported!

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

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

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

Untitled-1024x693.png

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

Market update ‚Äď Shares edging higher.


GLOBAL-ECONOMY-696x387.png
Market News Today¬†‚Äď Treasuries kicked off May with modest gains, correcting from the losses to end April. Caution ruled as Covid problems remain worries, especially with the spike in India. Wall Street was led by the¬†USA30‚Äės 0.7% rally, with the¬†USA500¬†up 0.27%, though the¬†USA100¬†slipped -0.48% lower, as tech stocks were under pressure. Comments from Fed Chair¬†Powell¬†suggesting that the economic recovery remains patchy¬†helped to boost Treasuries yesterday,¬†but bonds traded mixed overnight. Australia markets outperformed, but yields have come back from lows after the¬†RBA¬†left policy settings unchanged for now but upgraded its economic outlook.¬†GER30¬†and¬†UK100¬†futures meanwhile are down -0.1% and up 0.3% respectively, the latter in catch up mode as UK markets return from the extended bank holiday weekend. Trading conditions remained quiet, with China and Japan still on holiday.

In FX markets, the US Dollar strengthened across the board and USDJPY lifted to 109.33. Both EUR and GBP dropped against a largely stronger USD and also speculations on BoE. Analysts reckon the bank might announce a slowdown in its bond buying programme as vaccinations have bolstered Britain’s economy. Ethereum is at 160% above the 200-day MA, breaking 3,500. USOIL[/B] meanwhile spiked to3,500.USOIL[/B]meanwhilespikedto64.35 per barrel, as more US states eased lockdowns and the European Union sought to attract travellers. The weaker-than-expected US data stoked concerns over recovery and limited losses for the safe-haven metal. Gold is down at $1,785, after hitting its highest since Feb. 25 at 1797.

Today¬†‚Äď Data releases in Europe today focus on the final UK manufacturing PMI for April as well as consumer credit growth ahead of the BoE announcement on Thursday.

Untitled-3.png

Biggest (FX) Mover @ 07:30 GMT ‚Äď USDRUB turned 0.44% lower, breaking the 20-period SMA. The MAs aligned lower while RSI is at 43 and pointing lower and MACD is below signal line, suggesting decreasing positive bias. ATR (H1) at 0.24544 & ATR (D) at 0.90351.

Market News Today¬†‚ÄstUSD continues its May recovery¬†(USDIndex holds over 91.00), Equities closed lower (Nasdaq shed 1.88%).

The Fed‚Äôs¬†Kaplan¬†and Allianz‚Äôs¬†Al El-Erian¬†also talk up ‚Äúnon-transitory‚ÄĚ nature of the inflation threat.¬†Yields¬†cooled on USD advance, fell to 1.55% before moving 1.59%.¬†Overnight¬†Good jobs data from¬†NZD¬†and Housing data from¬†AUD¬†lift the antipodean pair.

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

May 10 ‚Äď GBP skyrockets, USD down, Crypto and Metals in the spotlight.


copper-1-696x364.jpg
Market News Today¬†‚Äď The overall tone in stocks remained positive through the Asian part of the session, after Wall Street shrugged off the disappointment of the US jobs report on Friday and took solace in the fact that the data will back the Fed‚Äôs dovish tone. Many Asian indices moved higher, while bonds struggled.¬†JPN225¬†gained 0.4% today, the ASX more than 1% after strong business confidence data. Hang Seng and CSI 300 underperformed and corrected -0.5% and -0.8% respectively against the background of anti-trust efforts and lingering US-China tensions.¬†GER30¬†and¬†UK100¬†futures are up 0.3% and 0.4% respectively, alongside gains in US futures.

In FX markets, the US Dollar sank to a 2-month low at 90.18. The GBP rallied to a 10-week high after local elections provided a boost to PM Johnson and seemed to fend off demands for another independence referendum in Scotland. Cable is trading at 1.4062 and EURGBP at 08640. EURUSD meanwhile dropped slightly to 1.2150. USDJPY lifted to 108.98 as the Yen weakened across the board. CAD and AUD were supported. USOIL is traded at $65.36 per barrel, after a key US pipeline was forced shut by a cyber attack (Colonial Pipeline). Copper skyrocketed to 4.869.

Ethereum¬†extended this month‚Äôs record run, surging more than 5% to an unprecedented $4,148.88. The second-biggest digital token has rallied 41% so far in May. Bitcoin rallied but remains below 60K after Elon Musk called dogecoin a ‚Äúhustle‚ÄĚ during his guest-host spot on the ‚ÄúSaturday Night Live‚ÄĚ comedy sketch TV show.

Treasury supply will be a focal point this week¬†as the¬†126 bln May refunding is on tap, and includes126blnMayrefundingisontap,andincludes58 bln in 3-year notes Tuesday,¬†41 bln in 10-year notes Wednesday, and41blnin10‚ąíyearnotesWednesday,and27 bln in 30-year bonds Thursday. Yields plunged on Friday following the jobs miss, but rebounded into the close as the market looked ahead to the upcoming supply. The wi 3-year traded 2 bps richer at 0.315% late Friday, with the wi 10-year fractionally cheaper at 1.590% and the wi 30-year 3.5 bps cheaper at 2.280%. Rates here would be the richest in two months for the 3- and 30-year maturities, and since March for the 10-year. Many of the auctions this year have shown sputtering demand, leading some to worry that demand for Treasuries is diminishing. This week‚Äôs auctions will be an interesting test, especially given richer rates alongside uncertainties over inflation, and now the job market.

Today¬†‚Äď Virus developments remain encouraging and with central banks still providing support, it seems the recovery remains on track. Today‚Äôs data calendar is pretty quiet, but includes UK house price data.

2021-05-10_09-55-31.jpg

Biggest (FX) Mover @ (07:30 GMT) GBPJPY (+0.92%) rallied from 7-week highs at 153.30 today. Faster MAs remain aligned higher, RSI crossed 70 and still points upwards, MACD histogram & signal line aligned higher extending away from 0 line. Stochs rising to test OB zone. H1 ATR 0.218, Daily ATR 0.990.

Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Market News Today¬†‚ÄstThe stock markets sold off across Asia. Inflation concerns¬†have hit¬†tech stocks¬†in particular, and the rise in¬†commodity prices¬†has seen the 5-year break even inflation rate lifting to the highest level since 2006, according to Bloomberg calculations.¬†China CPI climbed to a 0.9% y/y clip in April, more than double the 0.4% y/y from March. The jump in commodity prices has sparked concern over extended valuations in equities and¬†JPN225¬†corrected -2.4% and -2.1% respectively. The ASX sold off -1.0% and the Hang Seng is currently down -1.8%. Mainland China bourses outperformed despite a¬†higher than expected PPI reading¬†that reflected surging commodity prices worldwide.

While demand for Treasuries will be supported by safe haven flows, Eurozone peripherals, which outperformed yesterday, may well feel the chill this morning. GER30 and UK100 futures are down -1.3% and -1.2% respectively and a 0.7% correction in the tech heavy USA100 is leading US futures lower.

In FX markets, the¬†USDJPY¬†is little changed at 108.95, with the¬†US Dollar¬†and¬†Yen¬†both struggling.¬†Cable¬†stabilised at high levels after yesterday‚Äôs surge ‚Äď currently at 1.4124, as the UK BRC retail sales figures confirmed a surge in demand as the country continues to re-open.¬†EURUSD¬†meanwhile lifted to 1.2143.¬†USOIL¬†eased back to $64.33, as traders keep a wary eye on the impact of the cyber attack that led to pipeline closures.

Today¬†‚Äď Today‚Äôs data calendar has German ZEW investor confidence, which is expected to move higher.

Untitled-5-1024x644.png

Biggest (FX) Mover @ (07:30 GMT) EURCHF (+0.66%) reversed more than 40% of its 3-day decline from 7-week highs at 153.30 today. Faster MAs remain aligned higher, but RSI is close to 50 and MACD histogram & signal line remain well below zero even though they are presenting decreasing negative bias. The intraday positive bias remains limited. H1 ATR 0.0006, Daily ATR 0.0038.

Market Update ‚Äď May 12 ‚Äď Inflation day.

 
inflation_1200x628_2-696x364.png

Market News Today¬†‚Äď Fears over rising inflation weighed on both stocks and bonds, with equities bearing the brunt of the pressure. The broader indexes were the underperformers with the¬†USA30¬†dropping -1.9% and the¬†USA100¬†was down sharply too, off nearly -2%. Today,¬†GER30¬†and¬†UK100¬†futures are down -0.3% and -0.2% respectively. The rout in tech stocks in particular continued to see¬†wider markets selling off overnight,¬†and European bourses are likely to continue to struggle ahead of key US inflation data later today.¬†Treasuries were heavy too,¬†led by the long end amid the inflation threat. Yields have spiked in¬†Australia¬†and¬†New Zealand,¬†after some warnings that Australia could lose its¬†AAA rating.

Inflation fears have made a comeback although the sell off in equities seems to be abating somewhat, likely also thanks to ongoing verbal support from central banks, which continue to see the current spike in inflation as transitory. There was a plethora of Fedspeak and all concurred it was not the time to discuss tapering, while suggesting the disappointing jobs report was likely due to other issues aside from unemployment benefits.

In FX markets, the USD strengthened and USDJPY lifted to 108.89. AUD and NZD are broadly lower. Cable eased at high levels currently at 1.4130, EURUSD sustains support at 1.2115 for a 3rd day. USOIL stabilised at the $65 area.

Today¬†‚Äď Today‚Äôs US inflation reading aside, the local calendar confirmed German HICP inflation at 2.1% largely thanks to base effects from energy prices. UK GDP for Q1 came in a tad better than feared, with the quarterly rate showing a contraction of -1.5% q/q, largely due to lockdown measures.

Biggest (FX) Mover @ (07:30 GMT) EURAUD (+0.37%) broke 20- and 50-day SMA, spiking to 1.5562 high so far. Faster MAs stabilised and are flattened currently, as RSI after the 70 high is pulling back despite the bullish bias in the MACD histogram. Hence the intraday indicators suggest the end of the rally for the time being. H1 ATR 0.00185, Daily ATR 0.00911.

Market Update ‚Äď May 13 ‚Äď Inflation jump keeps trading nervous.


arrows2_1200x628.png-696x364.jpg
Market News Today¬†‚ÄďDespite warnings from policymakers, the jump in prices will keep trading nervous. Central bank officials remain adamant that the inflation overshoot that will likely be mirrored in the UK and if not the Eurozone then Germany, is mainly due to base effects and should be transitory, but stocks at least are not so convinced.¬†The surge in April CPI weighed heavily on Treasuries and the jump in yields knocked Wall Street sharply lower.¬†The spike in CPI stole the show this week, though the Fed and indeed global monetary authorities have warned about rising inflationary pressures, the 0.8% jump in the headline and 0.9% surge in the core elicited heavy selling.

Wall Street is on its heels with the USA100 falling -2.67% and the USA500 and USA30 tumbling -2.14% and -1.99%, respectively. The Treasury’s 10-year auction was very well bid, though at the highest yield in over a year. Bond markets across Asia sold off in catch up trade.

BoJ’s Kuroda joined the chorus of central bank officials playing down the spike in inflation as mainly due to base effects, but that didn’t prevent a further sell off in Asian stock markets. Asian equity markets remained under pressure after the sell off on Wall Street yesterday and European stock futures are also lower, with GER30 and UK100 down -0.6% and -0.8% respectively in catch up trade, after still closing higher on Wednesday.

In FX markets, the USDJPY is little changed at 109.68. AUD and NZD underperformed. EURUSD and Cable are little changed at currently 1.2074 and 1.4055 respectively. USOIL is at the $65.37 area. Bitcoin slumped and then recovered somewhat, after Elon Musk tweeted that Tesla Inc has suspended vehicle purchases using the digital currency due to environmental concerns.

Today¬†‚Äď Scandi and Swiss markets are closed and many countries are either celebrating Ascension Day or end end of Ramadan, which will likely make for quiet trading conditions. On tap we have US Jobless Claims and speeches from BoC Macklem and BoE Bailey.

2021-05-13_10-54-53-1024x841.jpg

Biggest (FX) Mover @ (07:30 GMT) EURAUD (+0.29%) spiked higher above R1 breaking the upper BB line and retesting the nearly 3-months Resistance, at 1.5700. Intraday the MAs aligned higher while RSI is at 71 but flattened and MACD is also positively configured suggesting a positive to neutral outlook. ATR (H1) at 0.00231 & ATR (D) at 0.00993.

Market Update May 24 ‚Äď Fear dominates.


bitcoin_1200x628_2-696x364.png
Market News Today¬†‚Äď Consolidation generally ruled the day in bonds and stocks after some big swings in recent sessions. The focus remains on the robust recovery, the rise in inflation, virus spikes and widening distribution of vaccines, and the varying dimensions of all left the markets in limbo.

Traders kept a close eye on volatile cryptocurrencies as China reiterated its commitment to curb mining and trading. Bitcoin was savaged and is currently at $36.5k, after it was hurt in part by China’s crackdown on mining and trading of the largest cryptocurrency as part of ongoing efforts to prevent speculative and financial risks. China’s intensifying efforts to cool raw material prices were also in the mix, as were ongoing inflation concerns, which in turn fuelled lingering taper talk.
 
SHANGHAI, May 24 (Reuters) ‚Äď Cryptocurrency miners, including HashCow and BTC.TOP, have halted their China operations after Beijing intensified a crackdown on bitcoin mining and trading, hammering digital currencies amid heightened global regulatory scrutiny of them. A State Council committee led by Vice Premier Liu He announced the crackdown late on Friday as part of efforts to fend off financial risks. It was the first time the council has targeted virtual currency mining, a big business in China that accounts for as much as 70% of the world‚Äôs crypto supply.

Treasuries traded narrowly around unchanged levels with the 10-year yield either side of 1.625%. Wall Street continued to meander in back-and-forth action as investors mulled growth versus value positions. GER30 and UK100 futures are up 0.2% and 0.3% respectively, and US futures are also fractionally higher, after a pretty steady session in Asia.

In FX markets the Yen strengthened and USDJPY dropped back to 108.70, while the Dollar was pretty steady against most other currencies. The EUR and GBP both steadied at 1.2190 and 1.4150. The AUD traded near the lower end of its 5-week range as the country’s central bank is seen lagging global peers in tightening monetary policy despite a strong economic recovery. It is currently at 0.7735. USOIL meanwhile is trading at USD 64.05 per barrel.

Today¬†‚Äď Whit Monday/Pentecost holidays in parts of the continent will likely weigh on activity.¬†The only key events of the day are Gov. Kuroda and Gov. Bailey speeches.

Untitled-6.png

Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) USDJPY (-0.51%) declined from 109.00 to 108.70. Faster MAs remain aligned lower, RSI 38 pointing lower, MACD histogram turned negative but signal line holds positive, suggesting that there is still some negative bias in the near term. H1 ATR 0.0665, Daily ATR 0.5566.

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

Market Update ‚Äď May 25 ‚Äď Greenback drifts, Commodities Jump.


fear_1200x628-696x364.png
Market News Today¬†‚Äď Wall Street was higher overnight as diminished worries over¬†inflation¬†and¬†declining Treasury¬†yields¬†offered support. Big tech took the lead, boosting the¬†USA100¬†over 1.5% higher, with the¬†USA500¬†up over 1% and the¬†USA30¬†0.7% firmer.

While it may be early to pull down the inflation red flags, the 10-year breakeven fell the most last week since September, indicating less concern over prices. Investors will look toward Friday’s release of the PCE deflator, the Fed’s favourite indicator.

Asian bond markets still benefited from soothing words on inflation from the Fed yesterday and yields dropped in Australia and New Zealand, while stock markets mostly moved higher, despite a mixed news flow that included further reports that Japan will extend the state of emergency on Covid developments and new local restrictions in Australia. The US State Department warning not to travel to Japan due to Covid may have some bearish repercussions on the markets in early trading. FTSE Russell will add China’s Xiaomi Corp to its global indexes next month.

European News¬†‚Äď In Europe,¬†Germany¬†had the second look at Q1 GDP, presenting that the Covid-19 hit on the German economy was bigger than expected in the first quarter.¬†German Q1 GDP was revised slightly lower¬†‚Äď to show contractions of -1.8% q/q, and -3.1% y/y (wda), versus -1.7% and -3.0% reported with the first release. Lockdown measures were the main reason for the sharp decline in activity, with restrictions severer than in France, Italy or Spain, at least initially.

Market Update ‚Äď May 26 ‚Äď Yields fall further in opening trade.


eu_update_1200x628-e1567669197104-696x339.png Trading Leveraged Products is risky
Market News Today¬†‚Äď Bonds were in the spotlight on Tuesday, posting solid gains, while stocks were mixed in a more back-and-forth trade. Dovish comments from central bankers, and especially Fedspeak, which continue to play down inflation, provided support, as did a strong 2-year Treasury auction.¬†Wall Street stumbled¬†from its opening rally and shed its gains after data suggested rising price pressures knocked consumer confidence lower. But ongoing dovish Fedspeak helped offset the selling.

In Europe, GER30 and UK100 futures are currently up 0.4% and 0.04% respectively, with a 0.4% rise in the USA100 leading US futures higher. Strong survey data out of Germany confirmed a broadening and strengthening of the recovery, but in a way that backs the assertion that a temporary mismatch of supply and demand is the main reason for the rise in price pressures. ECB’s Stournaras said he doesn’t see the need for a change to the PEPP program.

The June 10-year Bund future is down -0.6 bp, which suggests bonds will get a bid in early trade, after Fed officials once again moved to calm taper concerns and inflation jitters by re-iterating that the rise in prices will prove temporary.

Any initial demand for bonds may quickly fizzle out, especially after the RBNZ projections reminded markets that the next move at central banks will almost certainly result in tighter policies. RBNZ left policy unchanged, as expected.

In FX markets, the Yen and US Dollar struggled, while the NZD rallied as yields jumped higher. USDJPY is currently little changed at 108.76. Both EUR and GBP moved higher against a largely weaker Dollar, with EURUSD at 1.2259 and Cable at 1.4161. USOIL is trading at USD 66.04 per barrel, as traders weigh expectations of improving demand in the US against the possibility of new supply from Iran. Bitcoin gained 2.39% to 39,314.81 despite China’s northern region of Inner Mongolia escalating a campaign against cryptocurrency mining on Tuesday, days after Beijing vowed to crack down on bitcoin mining and trading. Gold is at 39,314.81despiteChina’snorthernregionofInnerMongoliaescalatingacampaignagainstcryptocurrencyminingonTuesday,daysafterBeijingvowedtocrackdownonbitcoinminingandtrading.Goldisat[B]1907.

Today ‚Äď The calendar is pretty empty today, with only some national business confidence readings out of France, before the Eurozone ESI report tomorrow and FOMC Quarles speaking, and Crude Inventories.

Untitled-12-1024x551.png

Biggest Mover @ (07:30 GMT) NZDJPY (+1.28%) rallied to 79.55 after RBNZ, breaking 79.41 which was the Resistance level maintained since March 2018. In the 1 hour chart, faster MAs remain aligned higher, RSI 82 but still pointing right, MACD histogram & signal line aligned higher while Stochs rising despite reaching OB at 93. The OB condition of both RSI and Stochs could alert the need of consolidation or pullback, but this is not the case so far. H1 ATR 0.1596, Daily ATR 0.6699.

EURUSD: Improving outlook with downside risks.


bullbear_1200x628-696x364.png
Central bankers continue to do their best to keep tapering concerns at bay, but while ECB’s de Cos added to the dovish voices out of the Eurozone this week, Bundesbank President Weidmann and centrist Executive Board member Schnabel are due to speak this afternoon and likely to present a more balanced view. A compromise for the June meeting could be a scaled back monthly purchase target within an unchanged PEPP framework and overall QE target, which would effectively mirror the BoE’s action. Against that background the air for Eurozone bonds as well as stocks may be getting thinner at these levels as markets look to US data releases. GER30 and UK100 are down -0.3% and -0.1% respectively.

2021-05-27_14-04-17-1024x549.jpg

EURUSD has drifted off highs¬†as markets anticipate a batch of US economic data releases today and tomorrow, including key price data. The¬†Euro¬†has lately found an underpinning from the improving outlook in the Eurozone economy, with the recent wave of Covid infections having been quelled and the EU having finally got its act together with its vaccination program. As for the US inflation situation, the prevailing dominant view is that price pressures will abate in Q3, as year-on-year base effects narrow and supply bottlenecks are ironed out, which ‚ÄĒ for now at least ‚ÄĒ¬†is keeping shorter-dated Treasury yields anchored at low levels,¬†with the Fed expected to hold out on ZIRP and QE.

The CME’s Fedwatch Tool shows that market positioning is implying a probability for a 25 bp Fed hike by year-end of just 9%, having ebbed back from the 11% odds that were being implied last week.

EURUSD 
futures are implying a first 25 bp hike in 2023, about a year ahead of what the Fed has been signalling. EURUSD is holding higher above the 20-day EMA. However, the market has been trading in a horizontal trajectory the past 8 days within the upper boundary of the 1.2165 Resistance and the lower immediate boundary of the 1.2157 Support. The RSI is sloping sideways above the 50 level, while the stochastic is heading downwards after the negative cross within the %K and %D lines. MACD lines held well above zero, presenting along with RSI an overall bullish outlook but a neutral outlook in the near-term.

However the key Support level for the asset is 1.2135, which is the confluence of the 20-Day SMA and 23.6% Fib. level. If the price breaks this bottom, it could meet the 50-day SMA and the 1.2000-1.2050 area. Bullish movements could open the way for the pair to test the year’s peak and even the multi-year highs at 1.2460-1.2500, if the bulls manage to successfully surpass 1.2250 (FE 61.8%).

In conclusion, EURUSD is neutral in the near term but is looking neutral to bearish in the short-term outlook.

Nevertheless, as stated in our latest post, EURUSD’s prevailing upside bias seems likely to sustain so long as markets continue to buy-in to the Fed’s narrative, but would see downside risk should Fed tapering start to look more inevitable. This would be when the US versus Eurozone growth differential is matched by a Fed versus ECB tightening expectations differential, which would be the circumstance for the directional bias of EURUSD to shift to the downside.

It is notable that the doves on the governing council have lately been quiet about the ascent of the Euro, despite the tightening effect via real interest rates. In fact ECB‚Äôs Panetta said just yesterday that the recent rise in the Euro could, if sustained, ‚Äúweaken inflationary pressures.‚ÄĚ Given the outsized fiscal stimulus and higher growth trajectory in the US, the bigger-picture risk for EURUSD is to the downside.

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

Market Update ‚Äď May 28 ‚Äď US Inflation & Stimulus in focus.

 
2021-05-28_09-52-42-696x456.jpg

LONDON

Market News Today¬†‚Äď Treasuries slumped after news¬†President Biden will offer a $6 tln spending plan on Friday. Gilts¬†led a sell off in EGBs yesterday after hawkish leaning comments from BoE‚Äôs Vlieghe hinted at the possibility of an¬†early rate hike.¬†Wall Street was generally firmer on¬†reflation trades¬†and the¬†stimulus news,¬†though the major indexes also lost altitude into the close as the administration also indicated it wanted to make the capital¬†gains tax increase retroactive to April.¬†As for the data, the mixed numbers didn‚Äôt provided any clear directional clues. The¬†BoJ¬†is reportedly mulling an¬†extension of the pandemic relief program¬†as Japan prepares to extend its state of emergency. Stock markets at least moved broadly¬†higher across the Asia-Pacific region. JPN225 jumped 2.1%, at 29,127.

Today, stock markets are not really spooked and the GER30 and UK100 are up 0.3% and 0.4% respectively, alongside broad gains in US futures. In the meantime, German import prices were released and jumped 10.3% y/y in April, the highest reading since December 2010 and up from 6.9% y/y in the previous month. Base effects from energy prices remain the main driving factor, with oil prices up nearly 200%, prices for mineral oil products nearly 80% and natural gas up nearly 60%.

In FX markets, NZD eased across the board, while USD and Yen were sought. NZDUSD is at 0.7240 (200-period EMA). Both EUR and GBP moved lower against the Dollar, with EURUSD at 1.2175 and Cable at 1.4105. USOIL rallied to $67.16. Gold is at $1889.30 ahead of today’s data.

Today
: Local data releases today are likely to support the recovery story, with Eurozone ESI economic confidence, and key US data in the PM session, i.e. PCE, Michigan Index and Good Trade Balance. The G7 meeting of Finance Ministers and central bankers may also attract some attention.
 
2021-05-28_09-38-32.jpg

Biggest Mover @ (07:30 GMT ‚Äď NZDUSD -0.65%) NZDUSD¬†dipped to 0.7240.¬†In the 1 hour chart,¬†faster MAs remain aligned lower, RSI 31 and still sloping, MACD histogram & signal line turned below zero. H1 ATR 0.0010, Daily ATR 0.0069.
