Market Update ‚Äď May 9 ‚Äď USD dominance rips through every market on FED.


daily-market-update-696x364.png
Monday Markets Blues

Can the cause sometimes take place after the effect?
 This is what looks to be the case this week. The USD surged to 2001 and has been bought and fixed income sold on ideas that the Fed had taken a hawkish turn, with investors searching for safety. The hikes will be front-loaded with the next 50 bp hikes discounted for the next two meetings (June and July) and a strong leaning for the same in September (~66%). Yields 10-year is up 1.0 bp at 3.14%. Stock markets are broadly lower, with Japanese markets underperforming and the Nikkei down -2.5%. Tighter Covid lockdowns in Beijing and Shanghai raised pressure on its economy, while China reported faster-than-expected growth in exports for April, while imports were flat.

Meanwhile in the market, speculation that President Putin might declare war on Ukraine in order to call up reserves during his speech at ‚ÄúVictory Day‚ÄĚ celebrations could further hurt market sentiment.

The week ahead is important because it may show the first signs that peak inflation is at hand.
 
  • USDIndex¬†above¬†104.10.
  • Equities¬†‚ÄstNikkei¬†down¬†-2.5%.¬†The¬†ASX¬†closed with a loss of¬†-1.2%, the CSI is currently down -1.4%, while Hong Kong was closed today.¬†USA500¬†led the way with a drop of 1.1%, while¬†USA100¬†shed 1.0%.
  • Yields¬†10-year¬†is up 1.0 bp at¬†3.14%,¬†Australia‚Äôs long yield also continued to climb and the German 10-year rate is up 0.4 bp at¬†1.13%¬†this morning.
  • Oil¬†back to¬†109,¬†after EU and G7 mull Russian oil imports while Saudi Arabia cut prices for buyers in Asia as China‚Äôs lockdowns weigh on demand in the region.
  • Gold¬†drifted back to¬†1869¬†as it looks less attractive from the safety of USD, while elevated yields further weighed on prices.
  • Bitcoin¬†hammered! Gapped down to33,228.¬†The start of a sharp technical fall ?
  • FX markets¬†‚ÄstEURUSD¬†is just over the¬†1.05¬†mark, AUD and NZD also struggled against the largely stronger USD.¬†USDJPY¬†climbed above the¬†131¬†mark and¬†Cable¬†is at a near 2-year low at currently¬†1.2259.

Market Update ‚Äď May 24 ‚Äď Bear Market Rally?


daily-market-update-696x364.png
USD slipped again (USDIndex down a whole big number), Stocks rallied as Euro moved higher on rate hike expectations, Asian markets fell (Nikkei -0.97%) after Snap’s profit warning and US Futures are lower. Shanghai & Beijing tightening Covid rules, Biden no change to Taiwan policy, Ukraine is a global issue prodding neutral countries. Zelenskiy says he would meet with Putin to end the war.
 
  • USDIndex¬†down to¬†102.00¬†and 6th down day of last eight.
  • Equities¬†‚ÄstUSA500¬†72 (1.86%) at¬†3973, US500FUTS at¬†3914¬†now.

Overnight ‚ÄstJPY & AUD¬†PMIs miss, NZD¬†retail sales miss¬†and hotter JPY¬†Tokyo CPI¬†all weighed.

Eurozone PMIs disappointed. The German composite PMI unexpectedly improved, but that wasn’t enough to lift the overall Eurozone numbers. The S&P Global Composite PMI dropped to 54.9 from 55.8, with both manufacturing and services readings coming in weaker than anticipated and flagging a renewed deceleration in the pace of expansion. The recovery continues, but at a slower pace and with the balance of risks still tilted to the downside, thanks to the threat of cut off gas deliveries from Russia.

Today ‚ÄstEZ, UK & US Flash PMIs, US ISM Semi-annual Economic Forecast, Speeches from Fed‚Äôs¬†Powell,¬†ECB‚Äôs¬†Lagarde¬†& Villeroy.

Market Update ‚Äď May 31.


daily-market-update-696x364.png
Stock markets traded mixed. Overnight Chinese data showed a slowdown in the pace of contraction in the manufacturing sector. Beijing’s new policy support, which includes cash handouts for hiring graduates and support for internet companies’ offshore listings, supported the sentiment a bit. In the rest of the world though, inflation jitters returned and yields spiked, with Australia’s 10-year up 8.5 bp and the German Bund yield lifting 1.0 bp to 1.06%. US Dollar stabilized as Treasury yields spiked.

European open: Swiss economy stronger than expected at the start of the year. Official GDP numbers beat expectations and showed a quarterly growth rate of 0.5% q/q up from 0.3% q/q in Q4 last year. Services were still held back at the start of the quarter by virus restrictions, and the impact of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine won’t show in these numbers yet. SNB head Jordan warned that the fallout from the war and sanctions against Russia could mean stagflation risks globally, but still, with these numbers, the SNB’s negative interest rate environment will also be challenged.
  • USDIndex¬†recovered slightly to¬†101.79.
  • Equities¬†‚ÄstNikkei¬†and¬†ASX¬†meanwhile closed with losses of¬†-0.3%¬†and¬†-1.0%¬†respectively as inflation jitters returned and yields spiked.¬†GER40¬†and¬†UK100¬†up¬†0.9%¬†and¬†0.4%.
  • Yields¬†‚Äď US 10-year rate has jumped 9.4 bp to¬†2.83%¬†as markets return from yesterday‚Äôs holiday.
  • Oil ‚Äď USOil¬†spiked to¬†$119.20¬†per barrel as demand expectations pick up and EU leaders agreed a partial ban on Russian oil.
  • Bitcoin¬†extended gains above 20-day SMA for the first time since April 7.
  • FX markets¬†‚ÄstUSDJPY lifted to 127.33, EURUSD down to 1.0734, Cable below the 1.26 mark.
Today ‚ÄstGDP from Switzerland and Canada for Q1, German unemployment, Eurozone HICP. US housing index, Chicago index and Consumer Confidence. The Biden-Powell meeting is also on tap.

Market Update ‚Äď June 01 ‚Äď European stocks advance despite data.


eu_update_pic_nov18-1-696x391.jpg
Wall Street was generally lower, but off its worst levels. Bond and stock bears returned refreshed from the Memorial Day holiday and got right to work, pushing Treasury yields higher and Wall Street lower. Treasuries underperformed globally after comments from Fed Governor Waller on Monday where he supported several more 50 bp rate hikes to curb inflation. Additionally, record high Eurozone inflation and hawkish ECB speak from Villeroy and Visco added to the concerns over central bank tightening. US data were mixed with ongoing record strength in home prices but worsening in consumer sentiment. Today, European stock futures are advancing as Bunds move higher at the open, despite the plunge in German retail sales data at the start of the session, which flagged the impact of rising inflation on consumption trends.

Overnight:¬†President Biden stressed he would not interfere with the Fed‚Äôs independence, in comments after meeting with Chair Powell and Treasury Secretary Yellen. Biden said his plan to address inflation¬†‚Äústarts with a simple proposition, respect the Fed‚Äôs independence.‚ÄĚ He also said Powell has noted he has a ‚Äúlaser focus on addressing inflation.‚ÄĚ So as expected this was largely a photo op for the president as he tried to assure that he and Chair Powell are addressing inflation.
 
  • USDIndex¬†at¬†101.97,¬†after¬†102.17¬†highs. The buck found renewed strength after comments from Fed Governor Waller who said on Monday, he favored several more half point rate hikes until the inflation rate is brought back toward the 2% target.
  • Equities¬†‚Äď The¬†USA30¬†and¬†USA500¬†closed down¬†-0.67%¬†and¬†-0.63%, respectively, while the¬†USA100¬†fell¬†-0.41%.¬†DAX¬†and¬†FTSE¬†100¬†futures are posting gains of¬†0.43%¬†and¬†0.36%.
  • Yields¬†‚Äď 10-year rate spiked 13 bps to a high of¬†2.88%,¬†and the 2-year climbed 10 bps to test¬†2.58%.
  • Oil ‚ÄstUSOil drifted to¬†114.05¬†from¬†120.45.¬†Oil prices rallied on the economic hopes and news the EU would ban some Russian imports, but then collapsed into the close on reports OPEC+ was considering exempting Russia from production quotas, thus opening the door for increased output from the likes of Saudi and UAE.
  • Bitcoin¬†steady at¬†31,550.
  • FX markets¬†‚ÄstUSDJPY¬†spiked to¬†129.35, with¬†EURUSD¬†at¬†1.0716,¬†and¬†GBPUSD¬†has dropped below¬†1.2600, although Sterling is nudging higher against the EUR.
Today ‚ÄstEurozone unemployment rate, ECB Lagarde speech, ISM Manufacturing Index & PMI, BOC Rate Decision and Statement and lots of Fed speeches.

2022-06-01_10-02-45.jpg

Biggest FX Mover @ (08:00 GMT) XAUUSD (-0.70%) broke the 20- and 200-day SMA. Intraday MAs flattened, MACD histogram & signal line well below 0, RSI 34 but flattening, H1 ATR 3.16, Daily ATR 21.92.

Market Update ‚Äď June 3 ‚Äď Wild Swings Continued.


daily-market-update-696x364.png

Trading is rather directionless this morning in the lead up to the jobs data. USD moved lower (USDIndex 101.70). Stocks extended gains overnight (NASDAQ +2.69%) and Treasuries bounced from red to green and back again. Asian markets managed pretty broad gains, with tech stocks still outperforming after they led yesterday’s rally on Wall Street (Nikkei +1.2%, ASX +0.9%) with China & HK closed today. European FUTS are lower (Italy, Spain & France closed & UK closed until Monday). Treasury announced a $96 bln package of coupon auctions for next week. Yesterday’s data showed strength in jobless claims and weakness in ADP private payrolls and factory orders.
 
  • USDIndex¬†pulled back to¬†101.70, reverting all the gains from Wednesday.
  • Equities¬†‚ÄstUSA500¬†(+1.84%) at¬†4189, while the¬†USA30¬†was¬†1.33%¬†firmer. The¬†GER40¬†future is up¬†0.8%¬†while US futures are looking more cautious as key US payroll numbers come into view.
  • Yields¬†10-year rate was up 0.5 bps to¬†2.91%,¬†with the 2-year 0.2 bps lower at¬†2.64%.
  • Oil¬†‚ÄstUSOil¬†spiked to¬†$116.27¬†before correcting to¬†$114.60¬†now, following the bullish EIA inventory report that overshadowed the boost in production announced by OPEC+ in July and August, only to tumble on reports OPEC+ was considering excluding Russia from production quotas which suggested increased output from Saudi and the UAE to make up for the loss.
  • Gold¬†rallied to¬†$1874.
  • Bitcoin back¬†above¬†$30k.
  • FX markets¬†‚Äď USDIndex is slightly lower,¬†EURUSD¬†managed to move up to¬†1.0755,¬†USDJPY¬†is still holding close to¬†130.00, Cable¬†is at¬†1.2574.
NOTE:¬†NFP¬†is unlikely to make any difference in terms of the Fed ‚Äď but the labor¬†market into Q3 will be an important determinant for the FOMC.¬†Meanwhile, the markets continue to¬†vacillate on risk-on, risk-off flows, and waver on inflation/growth¬†uncertainties, as well as the outlook for the responses from key central banks, while volatility in energy and the ongoing distortions from supply chains also continue to impact.

Today ‚ÄstEU Retail Sales,¬†US NFP, ISM Services PMI and Speech from Biden.

Market Update ‚Äď June 8 ‚Äď Wait & See Mode Ahead of US Inflation.


daily-market-update-696x364.png

USD¬†moved lower at close but is currently retaking the¬†102.50¬†level.¬†Stocks¬†also higher into close (NASDAQ¬†over 1%) on retailers and energy stocks,¬†Yields¬†cooled (10yr below 3%),¬†Oil¬†rallied over 1% to 13-week high on tight supply from private inventories. Yellen persistent high inflation ‚ÄúUnacceptable‚ÄĚ.¬†Demand for the safety of Treasuries¬†picked up after the World Bank slashed its global growth forecast by nearly a third to 2.9% for 2022, warning that Russia‚Äôs invasion of Ukraine has compounded the damage from the COVID-19 pandemic, and many countries now face recession. In Asia, a rally in¬†Chinese tech stocks that followed a batch of game approvals helped¬†to keep stock market sentiment supported overnight, and the¬†Hang¬†Seng¬†has gained nearly 2% so far. The CSI 300 is up 0.4%, while ASX and Nikkei lifted 0.4% and 1.0% respectively.

Overnight¬†‚Äď JPY GDP beat (-0.1% vs. -0.3%) & Economic Watchers Sentiment better (54.0 vs 51.9), CHF Unemployment in line (2.2%) but German Industrial Production missed significantly (0.7% vs 1.3%).
 
  • USDIndex¬†dipped to¬†102.24¬†after Target Corp warned about excess inventory and said it would cut prices, offering some relief to those who think inflation may be peaking.
  • Equities¬†‚ÄstCSI¬†300¬†is up 0.4%, while¬†ASX¬†and¬†Nikkei¬†lifted 0.4% and 1.0% respectively.¬†GER40¬†and¬†UK100¬†futures are posting gains of 0.3% and 0.2% respectively.

This represents summer retail prices reaching levels normally associated with¬†$160/bbl¬†crude prices‚ÄĚ. The¬†CEO of global commodities trader Trafigura¬†said oil prices could soon hit¬†$150¬†a barrel and go higher this year, with demand destruction likely by the end of the year.

Market Update ‚Äď June 9 ‚Äď European Futures Down Ahead of ECB.


eu_update_pic_nov18-1-696x391.jpg

USDIndex steady at 102.50 but overall USD on bid. Stocks traded mostly lower, with China bourses hit by news suggesting that virus restrictions in part of Shanghai are already being tightened again amid a rise in case numbers, shortly after Covid lockdowns were lifted. Shanghai will lock down the Minhang district on Saturday morning for mass COVID-19 testing, according to Bloomberg. Hang Seng -0.9%, US stocks closed down over 1% (INTEL -5.28%), Yields back up (10-yr over 3% again), JPY pressured, Brent & WTI rose over 2.5% on tight supply and China opening up. Yellen says some China tariffs still warranted. Bonds are under pressure, with a 6 bp jump in Australia leading the way overnight.

Overnight¬†‚ÄstChina trade surplus widened as exports rebound.
 

  • USDIndex¬†dipped to¬†102.24.
  • Equities¬†‚ÄstHang Seng¬†and¬†CSI300¬†are currently down -0.9% and -0.8% respectively.¬†JPN225¬†moved sideways, but the¬†ASX¬†lost 1.5%.¬†GER40¬†and¬†UK100¬†are both down -0.6% and US futures are also in the red.¬†USA500¬†finished off -1.08%, while the¬†USA30¬†was off -0.81% and the¬†USA100¬†was -0.73% lower.
  • Intel¬†rethinks near-term spending plans amid economic uncertainty ‚Äď freezes some hiring.
  • Yields¬†10-year rose over 6 bps to test 3.045%. The 2-year was 4 bps higher at 2.77%. The 10-year Bund yield is up 0.4 bp at 1.35%.
  • USOIL up to¬†$123.13¬†after stronger-than-expected Chinese exports in May, but found a ceiling amid new Shanghai lockdown restrictions.¬†Gold¬†weaker again below¬†1850.
  • NATGAS¬†futures jump¬†25%¬†this morning on US LNG outage.
  • FX markets¬†‚ÄstYen¬†found some support in the near term.¬†USDJPY¬†is above¬†133.90.¬†EURUSD¬†found some buyers ahead of the ECB meeting, leaving¬†EURUSD¬†at¬†1.0712, while¬†Cable¬†dropped to¬†1.2516¬†and Sterling also declined against the EUR.¬†Turkish¬†lira¬†slid to beyond¬†17.2.

Today ‚ÄstECB Rate Decision and Statement and US jobless claims.

ECB Preview:¬†Markets are eagerly awaiting today‚Äôs press conference. Rate settings are expected to be held steady for now, and while there are some members who see the urgency to act sooner rather than later as inflation goes through the roof, the ECB‚Äôs timetable for the phasing out of stimulus effectively excludes a move on rates this week. Net asset purchases need to end first and Lagarde is expected to confirm that this will happen early in July, which would pave the way for a rate hike in July. Lagarde has already mapped out two moves in July and September and the basic scenario is for ‚Äúgradual‚ÄĚ 25 bp steps, although the discussion on a bolder kick off with a 50 bp boost in July has already started. We suspect that Lagarde will stick with a focus on ‚Äúgradualism‚ÄĚ for now. But she will not rule out a 50 bp step as the need to maintain credibility and assert the Bank‚Äôs commitment to price stability and the 2% inflation target seem increasingly urgent.

2022-06-09_10-02-32.jpg

Biggest Mover @ (06:30 GMT) Platinum (-1.92%). Next key support at 970.00. H1 MAs aligning lower, MACD histogram sharply down, RSI 28, OS & declining, H1 ATR 3.91, Daily ATR 24.51.
