Europe’s geographical proximity to Ukraine and reliance on Russian oil and gas has left European markets more vulnerable to the fallout from the Ukraine war with DAX and FTSE 100 futures down -0.4%. Developments in Ukraine will continue to overshadow the markets going forward.

Market Update – March 3 – War stokes stagflation fears.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Stock markets mostly moved higher across Asia, but GER30 and UK100 futures are down -0.14% and US futures narrowly mixed, with the USA100 underperforming, against the background of the Ukraine war. Yields jumped higher yesterday and Bund futures are little changed this morning, as are Treasury futures, while in cash markets the US 10-year rate has corrected somewhat. Aluminium hits record top; Oil, wheat at multi-year highs on supply woes.  Longer-term Black Sea supply curbs lift wheat to 14-year high – Brent hit $118/barrel & Gold hit $1950/ounce. Russia is a top supplier in oil, gas, metals and grain, and Russia and Ukraine also account  for 19% of corn exports and 80% of exports of sunflower oil, which competes with soybean oil and palm oil.

Reuters: The United States is preparing a sanctions package targeting more Russian oligarchs as well as their companies and assets, as Washington steps up pressure on Russian President Vladimir Putin.

New talks between Ukraine and Russia are reportedly slated for today. US “hugely important” delivery of Stinger missiles to Ukraine hailed “game-changer” – Fake News? Political propaganda? Who knows.

Overnight – Powell signalled a less aggressive pace of interest rate hikes than investors had feared. BoE’s Cunliffe and Tenreyro suggested that the war in Ukraine will change the outlook” – suggested the bank remains on course to deliver further rate hikes. The banks could remain on course to remove stimulus, but will move cautiously and maintain the flexibility to step in again if necessary. BoE’s Tenreyro says Ukraine war leaves “upside surprise” on inflation, but also delivered a trade shock. China Services PMIs down; Japan consumer confidence down. ADP data showed a stronger than expected 475k jump in private payrolls in February and a hefty upward revision in January to 509k from -301k.

* USD – USDIndex at 97.50
* US Yields 10-yr lower now, was over 13 bps higher testing 1.87%.
* Equities – Nikkei lifted 0.7%, USA500 jumped 1.86% – Energy was the best performing subsector on Nikkei (+3.2%), financials jumped 3.17%.
* USOil – Rallied to $112.00; Brent hit $118/barrel.
* Gold – steady as risk appetite improved, trades at $1926; Copper at 4.76 ; Palladium at 2,721.
* FX markets – EURUSD at 21-month low at 1.1055, USDJPY up at 115.72 and Cable down to 1.3390 now from 1.3416. USDCAD breaks  below 200-Day SMA (Bank of Canada raised rates 0.25%).  AUDUSD breaches and breaks 200-week SMA at 0.7320.

Today – Today’s data releases will continue to take a backseat , but include final services PMIs for the Eurozone and the UK. The account of the ECB’s last policy meeting is also due, but the highlights will be in the US session with Jobless claims, ISM Services, Markit PMI, Fed Chair Powell testimony  and BoC Macklem speech.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) UKOIL (+4.83%) Spiked to 119.78. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram extend higher, RSI 70 & rising with all suggesting further steam to the upside. H1 ATR 1.79, Daily ATR 5.07.

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

Market Update – March 4 – Markets slump after nuclear power station strike.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Risk Off mood swirled as Europe’s largest nuclear power complex was targeted in Russian/Ukrainian fighting, 5 of the 6 reactors have been safely shutdown. Safe havens from USD to US Treasuries continue to rally and Oil & GOLD markets hold their gains, lifting commodity currencies. Asian stock markets crashed (Nikkei -2.5%) EUR is testing 24-month lows. US markets closed lower on mixed US data (PMI’s disappointed but Initial Claims were better than expected), despite some big gains from retailers. Fed Chair Powell was a tad more Hawkish in his second day of testimony. US sanctioned more Russian oligarchs. Ukraine and Russia reached an understanding on a joint provision of humanitarian corridors for evacuating civilians.



* USD (USDIndex 98.02). Cooled from 98.08 (May 2020 high) earlier as nuclear power plant fire is contained. Rallied through 97.00 most of yesterday. 97.75 next resistance. 
* US Yields 10-yr up to 1.844  on close – off 6 ticks lower to 1.785% now.
* Equities – USA500 -23pts (-0.53%) 4363.   US500 FUTS down at  4341 now. 
* USOil – Rallied to $112.56, yesterday, $106.10 now. 
* Gold – Rallied to $1950 earlier, $1936 now.     
* Bitcoin under 42K levels to trade at $43,300.
* FX markets – EURUSD back under 1.1010, USDJPY holds 115.40 and Cable down to  1.3320 now.   

European Open – The March 10-year Bund future is up 50 ticks at 169.71, U.S. futures are also higher across the board, as investors head for safety once again. The Russian attack clearly has rattled nerves and left investors seeking safety in bonds and the Greenback. DAX and FTSE 100 futures meanwhile are down -1.97% and -1.10% respectively. Developments in Ukraine may even overshadow todays’ US payroll report.

Today – EZ Retail Sales & Construction PMI, US Labour Market Report.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) EURAUD (-0.72%) Collapse from 1.6200 in mid February continues down to 1.4975 now. MAs  aligned lower, MACD signal line & histogram below  0 line, RSI 14 OS but still falling, OB zone, H1 ATR 0.0020, Daily ATR 0.0100.

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

Market Update – March 8 – Commodities Parabolic Rally Continues.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Instability from the war and uncertainties over global impacts made pricing extremely difficult, especially considering the extent of the moves over the last couple of weeks.

Markets are positioning for a series of rate hikes to deal with the spike in commodity prices, while in the Eurozone there is lingering speculation that the war in Ukraine and stagflation risks will prevent the ECB from a commitment to a phasing out of net asset purchases. Bonds as well as stock markets remained under pressure, as the Ukraine war is fuelling stagflation fears. The June 10-year Bund future is up 6 ticks, outperforming versus Treasury futures, which are firmly in the red once again, while the US cash rate has lifted 1.0 bp to 1.78%. The JPN225 is down -1.7%, with hefty losses of -3.62% on the USA100, -2.95% on the USA500, and -2.37% on the USA30. Oil is still trading at $120.00 after the wider jump to $126.30 – commodity prices will not just push up cost of living expenses but also weigh on production in sectors reliant on ready and cheap energy supplies.

* USD (USDIndex 99.31). Steady at 6-year highs.
* US Yields 10-yr up 1.2 bp at 1.785% – The JGB rate is up 1.0 bp at 0.150%.
* Equities – USA500 FUTS down at 4168 now. 
* USOil – Rallied to $126.30 yesterday, $119.70 now. – The prospect of a ban on oil imports from Russia triggered investor fears over inflation and slowing economic growth.
* Gold – Rallied to $2020 earlier, $2018.30 now.
* Bitcoin trades at $38,350.
* Nickel at new record highs – more than doubled today to cross the $100,000-a-tonne level for the first time ever, as tension in eastern Europe showed no signs of cooling and growing sanctions against Russia fuelled fears of a disruption in supply. – Russia supplies the world with about 10% of its nickel needs, mainly for use in stainless steel and electric vehicle batteries.
* Palladium surged to a new peak too. Wheat has paced the rise in key commodities since the invasion, having soared 52%. It surged 5.4% to a new high of $13.63 a bushel but finished down -7% at $12.02.
* FX markets – EURUSD at 22-month low at 1.0847, USDJPY holds 115.50 and Cable down to 1.3080 now.

Overnight – Japan reported its biggest current account deficit since 2014 in January. President Joe Biden’s administration is willing to move ahead with a US ban on Russian oil imports even if European allies do not, Reuters reported on Monday, citing people familiar with the matter. Crude has already hit 14-year highs and Russia warned that prices could surge to $300 a barrel and it might close the main gas pipeline to Germany if the West halts oil imports over the invasion of Ukraine. Germany has rejected plans to ban energy imports. The biggest buyer of Russian crude oil is accelerating plans to expand its use of alternative energy sources but cannot halt imports of Russian energy overnight, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Monday.

Today – EU Q4 GDP, US Trade, Wholesale Trade, and the NFIB Small Business Optimism Index and Japanese Q4 GDP.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) Palladium (+7.52%) Spiked to 3200 again recovering from 2810 lows last night. Currently MAs flattened, MACD signal line & histogram steady at 0 line, RSI 57 but pointing lower, all implying a short term potential correction lower. H1 ATR 56.87, Daily ATR 215.19.

Market Update – March 10 – Stocks & EUR Bounce, Oil sinks, Gold & USD slip.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Risk On re-emerged yesterday as stocks rallied (NASDAQ +3.59%, Nikkei +3.8%) as Russia-Ukraine Fin. Mins. meet in Turkey, OIL dived (-12% at one point) as UAE said it would increase output, but not break with OPEC. GOLD fell $85 & JPY & CHF dipped as safe haven assets fell (USDJPY over 116), USD slipped too, EUR had its best day in months (EURGBP back to 0.8400) ahead of ECB later. AUD & NZD hold their bid too. Yields fell and BTC stalled at key $42k level and lost over $2k. Overnight JPY PPI leapt to 9.3% due to significant imports.

* USD (USDIndex 98.04). Cooled from over 99.06 yesterday to 97.80 before recovering 98.00. 
* US Yields 10-yr up to 1.948% on close – lower to 1.934% now. Yesterday’s 10-yr auction was filled at 1.92.
* Equities – USA500 +107 (+2.57%) 4277. US500 FUTS down at 4270 now.  Tech rallied over +5% (Google, MSFT, NFLX & TWTR). XOM lost -5.6% as oil prices collapsed. Amazon +2.4% announced 20-for-1 stock split.
* USOil – Tanked from $124.90 highs on Tuesday to $99.70 yesterday. $107.50 now. 
* Gold – Down from Tuesday high at $2070 to under $1975 now.     
* Bitcoin tested the key $42K level yesterday, only to reverse under $40k & trades at $39,300 now.
* FX markets – EURUSD back over 1.1050, USDJPY holds over 116.00 and Cable up to 1.3190 now

European Open – The June 10-year Bund future is up 15 ticks at 163.75, outperforming versus Treasury futures. Yields moved higher across Asia, but the broad reversal of safe haven flows that dominated yesterday’s session has already started to run out of steam, as doubts over hopes that Ukraine and Russia will come to an agreement at the scheduled meeting of foreign ministers in Turkey today have crept in. US futures are broadly lower, even if DAX and FTSE 100 futures are adding to yesterday’s gains. The correction in oil prices eases some of the recent pressure and for the Eurozone at least, while support also comes from hope that EU heads of state will agree to joint debt issuance to finance energy and defence policies in light of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the escalating tensions between the West and Russia.

ECB Preview – The ECB meets today and another joint debt package would increase the central bank’s room to extend net asset purchases, which most now expect the central bank to keep open ended at today’s meeting as warnings of stagflation fears dominate the headlines. Still, the ECB can’t afford to do nothing and may find a way to change strategy and open the way to hike rates, while still buying bonds.

Today – US CPI, ECB Policy Announcement & Press Conference (Lagarde), Weekly Claims, Russia-Ukraine Foreign Ministers in Turkey & EU Leaders Summit, RBA’s Lowe.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) AUDCHF (+0.40%) Rallied from 0.6735 lows yesterday to over 0.68.00 now. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram hold over 0 line, RSI 62 & rising, Stochs in OB zone. H1 ATR 0.0011, Daily ATR 0.0070.

Market Update – March 11.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

US CPI is at a fresh 40-year peak, and there was a hawkish slant from the ECB for which the markets were not fully prepared. Risk off prevails with Asian stocks mostly sold off, after a largely weaker close on Wall Street. Japanese indexes underperformed and the Nikkei lost -2.1%, while the ASX was down -0.9% at the close. The Hang Seng corrected -1.6%, weighed down by tech stocks after the US flagged five Chinese firms that could be delisted. Oil dived to 101.25 amid escalating bans on Russian oil. President Biden will call for an end to normal trade relations with Russia. US & G7 allies to move today to strip Russia of ‘most favored nation’ status.

* USD (USDIndex 98.63) steady below 99.40 highs.
* US Yields 10-yr cheapened 6 bps to the 2.00% area. The 2-year rate was at 1.715%. The wi 30-year tested 2.40% prior to the sale but closed around 2.38%. 
* Equities – USA100 closed with a -0.95% decline, while the USA500 and Dow were down -0.43% and -0.34%, respectively.
* USOil – dipped to $101.25 but up to $105.09 now. Set for its biggest weekly drop since November.
* Gold – lower as US Treasury yields gained overnight on red-hot inflation data. Currently at $1990.
* FX markets – EURUSD back below 1.1000, USDJPY at 5-year tops at 116.79 and Cable languishes at 1.3093 near a 16-month low.

European Open – Eurozone bond yields spiked and spreads widened in the wake of the ECB announcement yesterday, which confirmed the ECB’s path to policy normalisation. Net asset purchases are set to be scaled back through the second quarter and likely to end in Q3, and while that paves the way for rate hikes in Q4, the ECB made it clear that rate moves will depend on geopolitical developments. The Ukraine war has left the growth outlook with clear risks to the downside and the inflation outlook with considerable upside risks, which complicates the matter, but it is clear that for now the ECB remains determined to phase out stimulus as inflation is unlikely to undershoot the target in the medium term.

Overnight – Japanese real spending dropped -1.2% in January, following the 0.2% bounce in December. German February HICP inflation was confirmed at 5.5% y/y, rising from 5.1% y/y in the previous month. UK monthly GDP was stronger than anticipated. The economy expanded 0.8% m/m in January.

Today – With the focus firmly on the Ukraine war, data releases continue to take a back seat, but for what it is worth, today brings Canadian Labor data.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) USDJPY (+0.51%) Rallied to January 2017 highs at 116.79. MAs pointing right, MACD signal line & histogram hold well above 0 line, RSI 76 & flat, all implying near term consolidation but overall strong positive bias.

Market Update – March 14.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

The Ukraine war remains in focus, but the FOMC announcement and the BoE decision are also coming into view. Russia’s attack on Ukraine seemed to intensify over the weekend, with bombs falling near the Polish border. US reports that Russia has asked China for military assistance also flagged the risk of a further escalation of the war, but at the same time there were some hopes of diplomatic progress ahead of fresh talks.

* USD (USDIndex 99.05) strong, helped by speculation that the spike in commodity prices will push the FOMC into an aggressive tightening cycle.
* US Yields 10-yr jumped 4.6 bp to 2.037%, amid speculation that the spike in commodity prices will push the Fed into an aggressive rate hike cycle. The June 10-year Bund future is slightly lower, but outperforming versus US futures, which have sold off.
* Equities – GER30 and UK100 are up 1.1% and 0.6% respectively, with US futures also higher. USA100 closed with a -0.95% decline, while the USA500 and Dow were down -0.43% and -0.34%, respectively. Nike and Apple weighed on the blue chips, while all 11 S&P sectors were in the red. Communications services and technology lagged, both down 1.8%, while utilities outperformed, about 0.4% lower.
* Reuters: China, the world’s largest crude oil importer and second largest consumer after the United States, is seeing a surge in COVID-19 cases, as the highly transmissible Omicron variant spreads to more cities, triggering outbreaks from Shanghai to Shenzhen.
* USOil – shed to $103.50 and consolidating as diplomatic efforts to end the war in Ukraine geared up and markets braced for higher US interest rates.
* Gold – lower at $1971 ahead of FED.
* FX markets – EURUSD is consolidating above the 1.09 mark amid lingering hopes that diplomatic efforts can prevent a further escalation of the war in Ukraine, USDJPY rising to levels last seen in 2017, with the pair currently trading at 117.83 and Cable languishes at 1.3018. The Yen struggled, and even more so AUD overnight.

Fed policy outlook: the FOMC meets (Tuesday, Wednesday) and this will be an important meeting, even though it will be overshadowed by the Ukraine war and the extreme volatile and uncertainties in the markets. What the latter have done, however, is temper any potential aggressive action from the Fed and other central banks as policymakers look to address decades high, if not record inflation, while not driving growth into the ground. Along with the universally expected 25 bp hike, versus the 50 bps or even 75 bp a few weeks ago, new quarterly projections will also be released. These forecasts will be subject to tremendous uncertainty, but we see big downward revisions to 2022 GDP growth and huge upside boosts to PCE chain prices estimates.

Today – The FOMC announcement on Wednesday is already casting its shadow. The BoE is due Thursday and also expected to hike rates again, after the better-than-expected GDP report from last week and with officials noting upside surprises in wage growth. Official UK labour market data is due tomorrow, but for today, the European calendar is relatively quiet.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) Palladium (-6.33%) Dipped to 2578. MAs pointing down, MACD signal line & histogram hold well above 0 line, RSI 23 & falling, all implying negative bias.

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

Market Update – March 15.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Markets are pricing in aggressive Fed moves and while the Treasury rate managed to correct slightly from yesterday’s highs, rates across Asia moved higher, with Japan’s up 1.6 bp and China’s 3.9 bp, while Australia’s was up 6.5 bp.. Stock markets meanwhile were mostly lower after a largely weaker close on Wall Street. Bond markets were under pressure across the Asia Pacific region with inflation risks and the Fed outlook in focus. China’s PBOC failed to cut the MLF interest rate as many had expected and the RBA minutes also flagged heightened uncertainty on the inflation outlook, even as the bank vowed to remain patient on rates for now. Growth data out of China may have been stronger than anticipated, but the country’s Covid policy, which has now shut down the important tech hub of Shenzhen, has investors spooked.

* USD (USDIndex under the 99 mark).
* US Yields US 10-year rate has corrected -1.2 bp to 2.12%.
* Equities – Hang Seng and CSI 300 lost a further -5.7% and -4.2% respectively. The ASX was down -0.7% at the close. The USA100 slumped -2.04%, with the USA500 falling -0.74%, and the USA30 unchanged.
* USOil – shed to $95.13 as ceasefire talks between Russia and Ukraine eased fears of further supply disruptions and surging COVID-19 cases in China fuelled concerns about slower demand.
* Gold – lower at $1929 on higher yields ahead of Fed meeting.
* FX markets – USDJPY continues to rise and is now at 118.35. AUD and NZD underperformed. EURUSD retests 1.1020, GBPUSD holds below 1.3050.

European Open: The June 10-year Bund future is up 11 ticks, Treasury futures are also finding buyers. Some consolidation then after the sharp sell off in EGBs yesterday, with safe haven flows picking up again, and GER30 and FTSE 100 futures posting losses of -0.8% and -0.94% respectively. Concern that overly aggressive central bank moves could stifle growth has picked up again and hopes of a quick breakthrough in Ukraine-Russian peace talks were also disappointed yesterday. There was some positive noise on talks between the US and China, but at the same time there are some suggestions China is indeed mulling economic and military assistance to Russia.

Today – For data German ZEW and US February PPI are due.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) USOIL (-5.82%) Dipped to 95.13. MAs pointing down, MACD signal line & histogram extend below 0, RSI 30 & falling, all implying negative bias.

Market Update – March 16 – FOMC Rate Hike Day.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

There was a bounce in US Equities following a collapse in the Oil price to under $100 as Zelenskiy suggests Ukraine will not seek NATO membership & talks with Russia are more “realistic”. Putin’s shelling and grind forward continues. US warns-off any sanction busting Chinese move, more sanctions from the West on Russian property, goods and people, Russia sanctions Biden & Clinton as it prepares for a massive default. Big rally in China shares following Covid infection spike collapse on Monday and a return of risk appetite.

European Open: The June 10-year Bund future is down 82 ticks, underperforming versus US futures. Yields corrected yesterday amid a sharp correction in oil prices and as demand concerns tempered supply disruptions. With the FOMC announcement coming into view, bonds are under pressure again, while DAX and FTSE 100 futures are up 2% and 1.3% respectively. China vowed to support markets and the economy, which helped to revive risk appetite. Dollar and Yen retreated as safe-haven demand faded and oil prices stabilized after dropping sharply in recent sessions.

Today – US Retail Sales, Export/Import Prices & Canadian CPI, FOMC Policy Announcement & Powell Press Conference. Also Weekly Oil Inventories & ECB’s Elderson & Panetta.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) AUDJPY (+0.43%) Rallied from 84.60 lows yesterday to over 85.50 now. Friday’s high was 85.88. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram hold over 0 line, RSI 66 & rising, H1 ATR 0.1300, Daily ATR 0.9300.

Date : 17th March 2022.

Market Update – March 17 – Hawkish & Faster Moving FED.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

The FOMC raised rates as expected by 25bps AND also announced a further six hikes in 2022 and four in 2023 (which was not necessarily expected). Chair Powell’s press conference soothed the initial hawkish reaction. US stocks leapt higher (NASDAQ +3.77%) USD cooled and Yields moved up. Canada Inflation was hotter than expected, US Retail Sales softer and NZD GDP missed significantly. Overnight AUD Jobs & CHF trade balance both beat significantly.  Asian stocks rallied (Nikkei +3%)  led by China’s continued bounce back. Biden called Putin a “war criminal”, Russia & Ukraine still talking, China & Israel tout mediator credentials.

BoE Preview: Recent comments suggest that the central bank remains on course to lift the Bank Rate by another 25 bp to 0.75%. The latest BoE survey flagged upside surprises on wage growth and with energy bills going through the roof second round effects from the inflation overshoot are already materialising. Against that background, this is unlikely to be the latest rate hike – at least in the central scenario. Like the ECB, the BoE will have to keep some degree of flexibility on policy options as stagflation risks are mounting, but with the Fed flagging a series of rate hikes this year, and even the ECB on course to normalise policy, the BoE has more cover to continue to tighten policy.

* USD (USDIndex 98.28). Tested 99.00 briefly on FED down after Powell.   
* US Yields 10-yr up to 2.188% on close – down to 2.15% now.
* Equities – USA500 +95.41 (+2.24%) 4357. US500 FUTS flat at 4347 now.  Tech rallied FB +6%, NFLX & TSLA +4.78%, Starbucks + 5.16%.
* USOil – Found support at $93.00 yesterday. $96.40 now. 
* Gold – Down to test $1900 yesterday,  trades at $1934 now.     
* Bitcoin tested over $41,000 yesterday, trades at $40,600 now.
* FX markets – EURUSD back to 1.1035, USDJPY holds over 118.00 & 5-year highs at 118.75 and Cable tested to the key 1.3000 yesterday, back to 1.3050 now.1

European Open: The June 10-year Bund future is up 26 ticks, U.S. futures are also backing up from yesterday’s lows.  Yields have started to move up from overnight lows, but for now it seems bonds are set for a positive start, despite the Fed decision yesterday. Still, markets were pretty much prepared and took solace in the Fed’s apparent confidence that the economy can withstand the withdrawal of support. Coupled with China’s promise to support markets and the economy that is bolstering stock markets confidence, with DAX and FTSE 100 futures up 0.4% and 0.2% at the moment.  There doesn’t seem to be  progress in Russia-Ukraine talks though, which will likely keep a lid on indexes, that already jumped higher yesterday. Investors may also be cautious ahead of today’s BoE announcement.

Today – EZ CPI, US Weekly Claims, Ind. Prod., Japanese CPI, BoE & CBRT Policy Announcements, Speeches from ECB’s Lagarde, Lane & Schnabel.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) AUDCHF (+0.43%) Rally continues big move yesterday to from .0.6730 lows Tuesday to over 0.6885 now. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram hold over 0 line, RSI 69 & rising, H1 ATR 0.00162, Daily ATR 0.0071.

Trading Leveraged Products is risky

The BOE raised rates as expected by 25 bps to 0.75% but were less clear about next steps, strong US data (Claims, Housing & Phily Fed Index) helped US stocks (+1.25) to close higher (best 3-day gain since 2020) again as the USD cooled and Yields & Oil rallied (no immediate breakthrough in ceasefire talks).  Overnight  No change from BOJ  but JPY Inflation finally perking up. Asian stocks positive (Nikkei +0.65%). Japan & Australia added sanctions, Biden to call Xi, Putin talked to Erdogan, Blinkin said “war crimes have been committed in Ukraine”.

European Open: The June 10-year Bund future is down -5 ticks, while US futures are posting slight gains.  Gilts benefited yesterday from the BOE’s “dovish-hike”, but after the initial move lower in yields, we could see some consolidation today. The FTSE 100 futures is posting modest gains, after local markets got a boost from a drop in Sterling yesterday. The DAX is fractionally lower this morning as stagflation concerns make a come back.

Market Update – March 18 – BOE move, BOJ stay put – Stocks, Yields & Oil bounce.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Risk aversion continues to dominate as Russia’s attack intensifies and hopes of resolution through talks fade. Stagflation concerns and the longer term impact on the recovery are keeping a lid on stock markets and complicating the outlook for central banks. The BoE managed to pull off a “dovish rate hike” last week, China’s central bank kept lending rate unchanged in line with expectations, while SNB is expected to keep policy settings on hold this week. At the same time, China’s lockdown in the tech hub of Shenzhen threatens to lead to ongoing delays in long awaited deliveries. German PPI inflation hit 25.9% y/y in February – sharp rise in cost pressures even before the impact of the Ukraine war had really taken hold. Energy price inflation hit 68.0% y/y. No surprise that many at the ECB are getting nervous, especially as the risk of rising wage pressures is mounting.

* USD steady (USDIndex 98.30) 
* Equities – After PBOC, Asian shares were down. ASX was down -0.2% at the close, while Hang Seng and CSI 300 are currently posting losses of -0.9% and -0.2% respectively. US futures are also in the red, after the strongest week since November 2020. GER40 and UK100 futures are down -0.2% and -0.02% respectively.
* USOil – Rallied to $108.80 – attacks by Iran-backed rebels on energy facilities in Saudi Arabia pushed up prices.
* Gold – remains under pressure at $1925.
* Bitcoin holds the break of $40,000 yesterday, trades at $41,055 now.
* FX markets – EURUSD back to 1.1050, unable to hold breach of 1.1100, USDJPY at 119.20 and Cable pullback to 1.3155.

Today – There are a number of ECB and BoE speakers scheduled this week that could attract attention in nervous markets. PMI reports in particular will be in focus in light of Ukraine tensions and the pick up in energy prices.

Market Update – March 22 – Rate-hike bets weigh.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

The surge in Treasury yields was the story of Monday’s trading after Fed Chair Powell underscored the hawkish stance coming out of the FOMC meeting. The reaction in bonds showed a lot of jitters over the outlook and the ability of the Fed to achieve a soft landing. The US curve flattened markedly yesterday as the short end underperformed amid concern the Fed will hike rates aggressively. Stock market sentiment still looked much better across Asia than in Europe and even the US. The US Dollar was sought as oil prices lifted with WTI currently trading at $114.90. Energy prices are on the rise again and central banks are set to rein in stimulus with ECB’s Rehn yesterday confirming that in the central scenario the ECB is eyeing a lift off in rates for Q4 or maybe Q1 next year. Wall Street was depressed in choppy action, correcting from the prior week’s healthy gains as the FOMC looks to rein in demand to help address the inflation pop, which now looks to be longer lasting and more widespread due to the supply shock from the Ukraine war.

* USD up (USDIndex 98.94).
* 10-year Treasury rate is up 4.7 bp, the 2-year 7.0 bp, June 10-year Bund future is down 70 ticks, US futures are down -12 ticks. The JGB rate has lifted 1.1 bp and rates in Australia and New Zealand jumped 14.0 bp and 13.0 bp respectively in catch up trade.
* Equities – Nikkei lifted 1.5%, ASX lifted 0.86%, and the Hang Seng jumped 2.1%, even as US futures declined. Hong Kong was boosted by Alibaba Group Holding Ltd’s $25 bln share buyback program and by contrast, the CSI 300 is currently slightly in the red. The USA30 slid -0.58%, with the USA100 sliding -0.4%, while the USA500 was off -0.04%.
* USOil – renewed rise in oil prices, to $112.22 – currently lower to 108.68.
* Gold – remains under pressure at $1934.
* Bitcoin breaches the $43,400, trades at $42,185 now.
* FX markets – EURUSD dips to 1.0960, USDJPY climbed to 120.48 and Cable rallied to 1.3136.

Today – UK public finance data and even more so the presentation of the budget will be of interest also for markets. The calendar today has Eurozone current account data, which is unlikely to attract too much attention.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) BTCUSD (+2.63%) Rally continues to 43,437, breaking the top of March 18. Fast MAs flattened along with RSI (59) but MACD signal line & histogram remain strong, implying near term pullback. H1 ATR 479.989, Daily ATR 2405.790.
