Market Update – March 23 – “Inflation leads”.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

European bond markets have sold off today following, Bund future is down -15 ticks, US futures are also lower, with yields extending the March spike across the globe. Curves shifted higher pretty much across the board, but with the short end underperforming slightly amid lingering stagflation concerns. UK’s inflation today hit 6.2% y/y (30-year highs) in February. The RPI – still an important measure for wage negotiations – stood at 8.3% y/y in February and coupled with an increasingly tight labour market the risk of second round inflation effects clearly are rising, as is the pressure on the government to do something to ease the jump in the cost of living.

Ukraine developments aside, fiscal responses to the jump in energy prices also are in focus this week, as governments discuss ways to cushion the impact and the UK budget is set to be unveiled today.

Companies are not only facing a sharp rise in energy costs, but also supply chain disruptions as the Ukraine war puts a stop to deliveries of intermediate goods that have disrupted German car production in particular. At the same time, China’s lockdown in the tech-hub of Shenzen threatens to lead to ongoing delays in long awaited deliveries.

* USD is ranging(USDIndex 98.50).
* 10-year Treasury has lifted 1.3 bp to 2.395% overnight.
* Equities – Stock markets remained supported across Asia, and GER40 and UK100 futures are posting gains of 0.8% and 0.7% respectively, with US futures also higher, but underperforming.Wall Street continued to see the glass half full and rallied, led by the USA100 1.95% pop, with the USA500 up 1.13% and the USA30 0.74% higher. Nikkei has rallied another 3%.
* USOil – firm above the $105 per barrel mark and Ukraine developments remain in focus, although stock markets still seem back in demand.
* Gold – remains under pressure at $1919.
* Bitcoin pullback to the $41,700.
* FX markets – EURUSD steady at 1.1020, USDJPY extends to 121.40 and Cable crossed 20-DMA , currently at 1.3260.

Today – Chancellor Sunak will present his spring budget today amid mounting pressure that he ditches the planned rise in national insurance contributions.Looking ahead PMI reports (Thursday) in particular will be in focus in the light of Ukraine tensions and the pick up in energy prices.

Market Update – March 24 – Stocks come back?


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Treasuries recovered yesterday after some hefty losses in recent sessions pushed some rates up to the cheapest levels since May 2019.  Reports of big inflows into Treasuries from quarterly portfolio rebalancing supported the rally, as did a stellar 20-year sale. And buying begot more buying to leave rates measurably lower.

Today there is a somewhat different picture than yesterday, as bonds rallied across the board and stocks traded mixed. Japanese markets corrected some of this week’s stellar gains after the minutes to the latest BoJ meeting showed officials flagging the risk of overshooting inflation. Oil prices are consolidating at high levels, as the Ukraine war drags on. For Europe, Putin’s demand that future gas deliveries should be paid in rubles raised the risk of imminent embargoes, as it may force the west to break its own sanctions. Energy prices will remain high then, putting pressure on governments to ease the burden for consumers and complicating the outlook for central banks. The UK budget was based on a sharply lower growth projection and a markedly higher inflation forecast and more revisions could well be necessary.

* USD up (USDIndex 98.88).
* 10-year Bund future is slightly higher, while the Treasury future is down 8 ticks, and in cash markets the US 10-year rate has lifted 4.7 bps to 2.339%.
* Equities – Tencent Holdings Ltd reported its slowest pace of quarterly growth on record, which kept a lid on the Hang Seng. In the ASX there were gains for miners and others benefiting from stronger commodity prices. DAX and FTSE 100 futures up 0.1% and a 0.5% rise in the NASDAQ is leading US futures higher.
* USOil – consolidated at high levels and USOIL is now at $114.89 after posting a high at 116.62.
* Gold – ranging at $1943.
* Bitcoin up, retesting the $43,500 resistance level again.
* FX markets – EURUSD down to 1.0974, USDJPY extends to 121.73 and Cable steady at yesterday’s low, at 1.3179.

Today – SNB and Norges Bank are set to announce policy today, with the latter seen delivering another rate hike. Data releases include preliminary PMI reports for the Eurozone, UK and US, along with Durable goods.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) USDCHF (+0.32%) Rebounded to 0.9344. Fast MAs aligned higher, RSI at 60 and Stochastic at OB, while MACD remains negative. H1 ATR 0.00088, Daily ATR 0.00658.

Market Update – March 28 – Yen, Oil & Stocks Dive as BOJ Remains “Ultra Loose”.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

BOJ announced unlimited bond buying policy, but yields still rose and YEN crashed, pulling down Asian stock & Oil markets, also hit by a strict 11-day lockdown in Shanghai (27 mill.). The US Treasury 5-to-30-yr yield curve has inverted for the first time since 2006, history suggests slowdown & possible recession. US 10-yr back over 2.5%. USD bid. APPLE talks of long-term subscription model moving away from selling products, as it reduces supply of iPhone SE & AirPods.

Biden & Blinkin “clarify” – “Putin cannot remain in power” comments, Zelensky talks of neutrality but insists on geographic integrity, walking back earlier comments. Russian & Ukrainian negotiators to meet in Istanbul later. Israel hosts 4-Arab states & Blinkin, NK tests more ICBM’s. Japan tightens FX laws and Crypto loopholes to sanction Russia.

Week Ahead   – US NFP (380k), US, UK and Canada GDP and many central bankers’ speeches.

* USD (USDIndex 99.14). closed Friday 98.85. Friday’s US data weak (Pending Home Sales at 2-yr low &  Consumer Sentiment at 11-yr low)   
* US Yields 10-yr up to 2.53% currently & new 3-yr highs, from Friday’s close 2.492%
Equities – USA500 +22.90 (+0.51%) 4543. US500 FUTS now at 4519 now. (Closed up +1.8% last week – Nasdaq best performer last week +2.0%.
* USOil – Fell to start the new week to $108.94 now – from Friday’s close at $112.50   
* Gold – slipped to $1935 now,  from Fridays close at $1955.     
* Bitcoin breaks up 4.4% from the 42k-45K range to $46,800  now.
* FX markets – EURUSD back to test 1.0950, unable to hold breach of 1.1000, USDJPY over 123.00 & new 7-year highs and Cable back to 1.3130 now, from over 1.3200 on Friday.

European Open-The June 10-year Bund future is down -78 ticks at 157.87, underperforming versus Treasuries.  A lockdown in Shanghai weighed on the CSI overnight and left oil prices lower, while the Ukraine war’s drag on Europe’s energy costs is set to remain extremely high, with the resulting spike in the cost of living hitting consumers and consumption trends in many countries. In the UK that has already become apparent and last week’s budget offered not enough relief to soothe concerns. DAX and FTSE 100 are up 0.056% and 0.054% respectively at the moment.  A cautious start for stocks then into a data heavy week that brings the final round of Eurozone confidence numbers for March and preliminary inflation reports that are likely to look ugly.

Today – ASEAN summit, US 2yr and 5yr supply, Trade Goods Balance & US Inventories. Speech from BoE Governor Bailey.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) AUDJPY (-0.98%) Big move against JPY today, continues trend of weaker YEN. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram strong but cooling, RSI 71, OB but rising, H1 ATR 0.281, Daily ATR 1.120.

European Open – The German 10-year rate is up 3.2 bp at 0.575%, alongside a 4.1 bp rise in the U.S. Treasury yield. However, while U.S. Treasury futures are moving higher, led by a 0.5% rise in the NASDAQ, DAX and FTSE 100 futures are down -0.1% and -0.05% respectively.

The uncertainty over what will happen to Russian gas exports to Europe is hanging over markets, amid fears that shortages will force producers to halt or throttle production. Germany’s Scholz tried to calm nerves over Putin’s announcement that payments will have to be made in Rubles, although whether Moscow’s proposal that payments in EUR will have to be paid into Gazprombank and then transferred into Rubles is a way forward remains to be seen. The war meanwhile drags on and while another round of video-talks between Ukraine and Russia are reportedly scheduled for today there is no sign of a breakthrough just yet. EZ inflation is going through the roof and today’s preliminary Eurozone HICP report is likely to look very ugly. ECB chief economist Lane has already laid the ground for an overshoot though, by turning dovish again and saying that the ECB must be ready to move in either direction in this situation.

Today – EZ, UK & US Final Manufacturing PMIs, US Labour Market Report, ISM Manufacturing PMI, China-EU Summit, Ukraine-Russia negotiators to meet again, Speech from Fed’s Evans.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) USDJPY (+0.57%) Continues to rally off 121.30 lows this week. Next resistance 123.00. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram higher & over 0 line, RSI 61 & rising, H1 ATR 0.211, Daily ATR 1.310.

Market Update – April 6 – Treasury yields soared & FOMC Minutes ahead.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

* USD & Treasury yields have been rising. Stock markets have been under pressure, hit by the surge in yields with the tech-heavy index (USA100) plunging -2.26% as selling picked up into the close.
* The market has priced in a lot of bearish elements, yields shot higher again on hawkish comments from Fed, RBA. Disappointing China PMI reports weighed on both bond and stock market sentiment.
* USOil up to $102.48 as West mulls further sanctions against Russia. – Saudi boosted prices by over by $2 per barrel in late March.
* US coal prices climbed over $100 a ton today for the first time in 13 years after the EU said it is mulling restricting coal imports from Russia.
* US Rates on the 5-, 7-, and 10-year maturities were up almost 17 bps to 2.7108%, 2.678%, and 2.565%, respectively. The bond was 13.5 bps higher at 2.596%, while the 2-year rose over 10 bps to 2.526%. The bear curve steepened to 4.8 bps, after having been inverted for the prior three sessions at -3 bps Monday and -8 bps Friday.
* USD (USDIndex 99.72) rallied from 98.80 yesterday.
* Equities – USA500 -72.15 (1.57%) at 4530. US500 FUTS 4547. Banks & Technology stocks led the broadbased month end decline.
* Gold – steady at $1920 low after 1947 high yesterday.
* Bitcoin closing the gap at 45370?
* FX markets – EURUSD dipped to 1.0883, USDJPY continued to struggle at 124.04, Cable back to 1.3120 now. AUD and NZD also remained supported as yields moved higher.   

European Open – The German manufacturing orders came in much weaker than expected, with orders falling -2.2% m/m in February.  The actual slump was a surprise that will add to concerns that the German manufacturing sector could be heading for recession as the spike in energy prices and supply chain disruptions hit Germany’s industrial core. Exports orders dropped -3.3% in February.

FOMC preview – The minutes should prove very interesting to the markets as they should provide details on the balance sheet run off. We’ll also read the various comments about the abrupt, hawkish pivot from the FOMC, although we already know that the threat of surging inflation and the likelihood that it would not prove as “transitory” as expected, along with the robust recovery and strength in the labor market, were the major factors that finally forced the Fed to shift into high gear by accelerating the pace of trimming accommodation and then eye aggressive rate hikes. The dot plot reflected the pivot, and Fedspeak since then has affirmed it. Governor Brainard’s comments Tuesday, in fact, indicated the Fed would announce the start of balance sheet reduction as soon as May. She also supported her colleagues’ views on the need for a larger and speedier pace of balance sheet runoff. We will look for details on that in the minutes. We suspect at a minimum the Fed will double the pace of that from the last cycle with $60 bln in Treasuries and $30 bln in MBS, although the still hot housing market could see a higher cap on MBS.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) USDCHF (+0.37%) At 6-day highs and close to R2 at 0.9331. Next resistance 0.9376. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram higher & over 0 line, RSI 77 & rising, H1 ATR 0.00087, Daily ATR 0.00617.

Zelenskiy says tens of thousands have died in Mariupol.

Overnight – JPY PPI inflation beats  – 9.5% vs. 9.2%  & 9.7% previously. In line UK Wages & Unemployment with Claims lower.  AUD big boost for Business Confidence (16 vs 13) and German HICP at 7.6%, levels last seen in the early 1980s.

Eurozone spreads, which narrowed yesterday, are mostly wider this morning, especially at the short end, and the US curve has flattened slightly, as the short end underperforms ahead of key US inflation data. Markets are nervous that a higher than expected figure could prompt the Fed to head for an even more aggressive tightening cycle than currently expected and in Europe, the high German inflation reading is putting pressure on the ECB ahead of Thursday’s meeting.

Today – US CPI, (1.2% m/m 8.4% y/y) – but watch the CORE figures for any sign of actual weakness. Speeches from Fed’s Barkin & Brainard.

Market Update – April 13 – Inflation & Earnings come into focus.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Yields lost their bid, USD held onto gains, Stocks were lifted by the hot US CPI  headline data, (new 40-yr high at 8.5%) only to close the day in the red as the CORE figure missed and suggested the top for inflation may be coming sooner than expected. JPY (weak data) & EUR (Putin saying talks at “dead-end”). NZD jumped as RBNZ raised rates by 50bp (largest in 22-yrs). Oil recovered $100, Gold moved higher again.

* Stocks closed marginally lower after strong start. Asia markets stronger (Nikkei +1.68%) & UK & European FUTS marginally higher
* Yields rally cooled, 10-yr from top at 2.836% to close at 2.727% & now at 2.738%.
* EUR fell again after Putin comments.
* USD holds bid, NZD broke 0.6900 briefly as RBNZ said they were not changing their outlook, but just bringing forward rate hike cycle.
* Oil  continued to recover and holds over $100 – Shanghai lockdowns ease further but record levels of new COVID infections nationwide.

Biden said Russia has committed Genocide, (additional $750m military aid to Ukraine to  come) Putin said Russia will achieve its aims in Ukraine and that talks “have again returned to a dead-end situation for us”. Johnson & Sunak refuse to resign after being fined by the London Met. Police for breaking lockdown rules. More fines to come potentially.  Brainard, (Fed Vice Chair), Birkin & Bullard all agreed that aggressive rate hikes were required but disagree what happens afterwards. Brainard sees weaker inflation and a return to pre-pandemic conditions, Birkin & Bullard see inflation, particularly wage inflation, being “sticky” for much longer.

Overnight – JPY Machine Orders & Money Supply  miss significantly  (-9.8% vs.-1.5%). China  Trade Balance (surplus) more than doubles, Exports beat, Imports surprisingly fall. UK Inflation at 30-yr high CPI, (7.0%) CORE (5.7%) RPI (9.0%) & PPI 19.2% – all stronger than expected.

* USDIndex rallied to test new high 100.42 , trades at 100.34 now.
* US Yields 10-yr closed lower at 2.727%, up again now to 2.824%.
* Equities – USA500 -15.08 (-0.34%) at 4397. (A breach of 4400)  –  US500 FUTS 4418. TWTR (-5.38%) – Earnings Season kicks off today.
* USOil – Trades at $100.30 following a rally to $102.00, Shanghai eases some lockdowns.
* Gold – held $1950 yesterday and tested next resistance at $1975, back to $1970 now.   
* Bitcoin continued to decline from key 45k to test 39k zone, recovered to 40k now.
* FX markets – EURUSD back to test 1.0810 earlier, (5-wk lows) now 1.0830. USDJPY breaks 126.00 to trade at 126.15 and Cable sinks back to test 1.2985 as USD bid continues and very hot inflation data weighs.

European Open – Asian stock markets mostly managed gains as markets digested US inflation data that weren’t quite as bad as feared, especially in the core reading.  Mainland China bourses struggled though, as hope of easing virus restrictions faded and after trade data showed unexpected weakness in imports, which left the trade surplus higher than anticipated, but added to concern that the domestic economy is struggling with the official “No-Covid” policy. The CSI 300 is currently down -0.3%, the Hang Seng up 0.6%, however, with tech stocks recovering.

Today – US PPI, New Zealand Manufacturing PMI, BoC Policy Announcement, IEA OMR, Earnings from BlackRock, Delta Air Lines, JPMorgan.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) EURNZD (+0.77%) Dipped to 1.5700 on RBNZ announcement, reversed quickly to test 1.5935 now. Next resistance 1.5970 & 1.6000. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram moving higher & over 0, RSI 68 & rising, H1 ATR 0.00357, Daily ATR 0.01640.

Market Update – April 14 – “Peak Inflation?” & Ms. Lagarde.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Yields stabilized lower, USD cooled significantly and Stocks bounced back. BOC added 50 bp to their base rate and warned of more to come. USDCAD sank from 1.2675 down to sub 1.2500. USDJPY hit a 20-year high over 126.00. US PPI lifted to all-time highs (11.2%) following 40-yr highs for CPI (8.5%) on Tuesday. All 13 measures of UK Inflation were higher than expected with CPI at 30-yr highs (7.0%) and a strong CORE (ex. Fuel & Food) at 5.7%, RPI 9.0% (important for wage settlements) and PPI 19.2%.

* Stocks higher (NASDAQ +2.0%)  Asia markets stronger too (Nikkei +1.18%) & UK & European FUTS also higher
* Yields rally cooled further, 10-yr closed at 2.69% & now at 2.712%.
* USDIndex cooled from 100.50 highs & trades 99.60 now.
* Equities – USA500 +49 (+1.12%) at 4446. –  US500 FUTS 4452. Delta Airlines (+6.21%), AAL (+10.62%). JPM (-3.22%) a miss for Trading volumes. Big Tech bounced (AMZN +3.15%)
* Oil  & Gold continued to recover and hold over $103 & $1975 respectively.
* Bitcoin recovered from 39k zone on Tuesday to 41k now.
* FX markets – EURUSD recovered from 1.0808 lows (5-wk+ lows) to now 1.0915. USDJPY cooled from 126.30 20-yr high to trade at 125.40 and Cable recovered from 1.2972  lows to 1.3140 now.

Biden announced an additional $800 million in military assistance to Ukraine, (brings total to 2.5bn).  Xi says sticking to tough COVID curbs will bring victory. Markets not convinced. PBOC rate cut imminent? Japan Fin Min. says country has not emerged from deflation, & 76% of Japanese business worried about the weak YEN damaging the economy. Finland & Sweden on brink of NATO membership. Sri Lanka about to default on debt, first of many low income nations?

Overnight – More peak inflation news ?? AUD job growth missed (17.9k vs 30.0k & 77.4k last time)  & Unemployment rose (4.0% vs 3.9% & 3.9%). CHF PPI missed and UK House Inflation also slipped.

ECB Preview – Record high inflation and hawkish comments from some council members have left markets positioned for at least one rate hike from the ECB later in the year. However, with no sign that the war in Ukraine will be over any time soon and the sanctions against Russia already starting to cloud over the growth outlook, we suspect that chief economist Lane will want to keep a lid on tightening expectations today. Lane already warned against an “overreaction” to the surge in inflation and that the initial inflationary pressure from a supply shock “should decline over time”. He also highlighted the “significant risks to growth” from the war in Ukraine and the sanctions against Russia, while saying that “the best way that monetary policy can navigate this uncertainty is to emphasize the principles of optionality, gradualism and flexibility“. Lane is also keeping a close eye on spreads as the end of the PEPP program last month has kept peripheral vulnerable to bouts of risk aversion and even suggested that the PEPP program could be revived if necessary. Judging by ECB data released yesterday, the ECB has already blown much of the monthly APP purchases over the first two weeks of the month, clearly also in an attempt to keep a lid on yields and Lane will likely be arguing against an overly hawkish signal today that would further fuel rate hike speculation. That means the event risk is a more balanced statement than markets currently expect. – Action Economics

Today – US Weekly Claims, Retail Sales, Business Inventories & UoM Sentiment, ECB & CBRT Policy Announcements, ECB’s Lagarde, Fed’s Harker & Mester, Earnings from Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and UnitedHealth.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) NZDUSD (+0.50%) Recovered from 0.6756 lows following RBNZ announcement, to close at 0.6796, testing 0.6830 now. Next resistance 0.6850 & 0.6875. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram moving higher & over 0, RSI 64 & rising, H1 ATR 0.00099, Daily ATR 0.00703.

Market Update – April 15 – Stocks Sink, Yields Rally, EUR & JPY Pressured.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD & Yields rallied significantly, and Stocks sank into long Easter weekend. EURUSD tanked under 1.0800 after ECB confirmed QE is set to end in Q3, but Lagarde was cagey on the actual timing and on the prospect of rate hikes. USDJPY hit a new 20-yr high over 126.50. US Claims missed (185k vs 172K), but remain historically low.  Retail Sales were better (+0.5% headline, +1.1% ex-autos & big net upward revisions). UoM Consumer Sentiment surprised to the upside (65.7 vs 59.1). Trade prices beat – record-high 4.5% for exports & 11-yr high of 2.6% for imports.  All 4-big banks beat earnings expectations but profits fell and shares varied from Citi +1.55% to Wells Fargo -4.51%. Musk moved to buy Twitter, markets not convinced, but he has a “Plan B” if it fails apparently.

* Yields moved significantly higher, 10-yr moved form 2.69% to close at 2.82%

* Oil  & Gold continued to recover and hold over $105 & $1970 respectively.
* Bitcoin sank to 39k zone again from over 41k, trades at 40k now. 
* FX markets – EURUSD has recovered 1.0800 from 1.0757 lows yesterday. USDJPY trades at new 20-yr highs at 125.60 and Cable tumbled a whole big number to 1.3050 from 1.3150 yesterday.

Overnight – Mester (hawk) – Job market is “very tight” & inflation is “very elevated”. Williams (centratist) a 50 bp rate increase is a “very reasonable option,” PBOC did not  cut interest rates as had been broadly expected.

Today –  French CPI in-line  at +1.4% m/m. Empire State Manu. Index.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) USDJPY (+0.65%) Continues to rally posting new 20-yr highs over 126.60. Next resistance 126.75 & 127.00. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram moving higher, RSI 69 & rising, H1 ATR 0.151, Daily ATR 1.71.
