FX News Today
[/color]Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are up 3.8 bp at 3.168%, 10-year JGB yields jumped 1.2 bp to 0.121% as Asian shares rallied on trade hopes. Bloomberg reported that Trump is seeking to reach a trade deal with China at the G20 meeting in Argentina later this month and has asked officials to begin drafting potential terms, with other reports suggesting that intellectual property rights are a key sticking point. Apple warned that sales for the crucial holiday quarter may miss expectations, but this was shrugged off amid hopes of a trade deal, which together with yesterday’s pledge from Chinese officials to support demand saw Topix and Nikkei gaining 1.64% and 2.56% respectively. The Hang Seng outperformed and was up 3.66% as of 6:08 GMT. The CSI also rose 3% and Shanghai and Shenzhen Comp gained 2.20% and 2.86%. US stock futures are also higher and oil prices reached a high of USD 63.95 per barrel, before falling back to now USD 63.81.FX Update: The Dollar and the Yen have traded generally weaker against most other currencies amid a backdrop of strongly-rebounding global stock markets. An ease between the US and China on trade, along with overall decent corporate earnings, mostly firm US data this week, and a plethora of stock-boosting measures by Beijing, have collectively elicited a rebound in stock markets. USDJPY has recouped to the 113.00 area, though Yen crosses have generally rallied by bigger magnitudes. The biggest percentage gainer has been AUDJPY, which has gained over 0.7% in what is now its sixth consecutive up day. EURUSD has rallied a third consecutive up day, posting a 9-day high of 1.1440 so far. The AUDUSD pegged a 5-week high at 0.7250, and USDCAD descended to an 8-day low at 1.3053, despite another sharp leg low in oil prices yesterday, which sent WTI benchmark prices to 7-month lows near $63.00.

[/color]* Euro Manufacturing PMI – Expectations – Eurozone PMI is expected to remain unchanged.* UK Construction PMI – Expectations – The October Construction PMI is expected to slip slightly by 52.00 after the 52.1 expansion seen in September.* Canadian Employment Change and Trade Balance – Expectations – The employment should post a 15.0k gain in October jobs,  following the 63.3k rise in September. The pace of wage growth is expected to slow further. The trade surplus is anticipated to narrow slightly to C$0.4 bln in September from C$0.5 bln in August.* US Non-Farm Payrolls  – Expectations – The October US employment expect to see a 194k headline for the month with a 195k private employment figure and unemployment holding steady at 3.7% for a second month. No disruption is expected from the landfalls of hurricanes Michael and Florence but the timing of these two events means that the impact on October payrolls will likely be offsetting.Always trade with strict risk management.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 10th December 2018.



Main Macro Events This Week


Subpar headline jobs and earnings numbers have not altered expectations for a 25 bp increase in the funds rate band, however, at the upcoming December 18-19 FOMC meeting another tightening is forecast. Also on both the Fed and ECB radar screens are two chronic issues that have plagued Europe and added to market volatility – Brexit and Italy. The UK parliament votes on the May Brexit plan on December 10, while EU leaders hold a summit on December 13-14 and could decide whether to accept any alterations to the already agreed upon deal.


United States: The week ahead in the US will feature data on consumption and inflation, alongside readings on industrial production and business inventories. The economic calendar resumes with an update on JOLTS job openings (Monday), followed by the NFIB Small Business Optimism Index (Tuesday). Headline PPI is expected to be flat in November (Tuesday), and core prices should rise just 0.1%, following respective gains of 0.6% and 0.5% in October. MBA mortgage market data is on hand (Wednesday), along with a likely flat reading for headline CPI in November, after a 0.3% gain in October, while core prices should rise 0.2%, after a similar gain in October. EIA energy inventory data and the Treasury budget are due too (Wednesday). Initial jobless claims are estimated to decline 6k to 225k in the week ended December 8 (Thursday), after falling 4k to 231k in the week of December 1. November retail sales are seen rising just 0.1% (Friday).


Canada: A thin calendar in Canada this week, however, will not provide much in the way of key data. Housing starts (Monday) are expected to edge lower to 200.0k in November from 205.9k in October. Capacity utilization (Wednesday) is expected to rise to 86.0% in Q3 from 85.5% in Q2. The capacity use report is unlikely to make much of a splash given that BoC looks a variety of indicators of capacity use and will evaluate its estimate of the degree of slack in the economy given Statistics Canada’s revision to the GDP trajectory. The new housing price index (Thursday) is seen holding steady, while the Teranet/National Housing Price Index for November is due Wednesday.


Europe: With all eyes on the political stage this week, data releases are likely to take a back seat, even if the calendar includes key leading indicators. The last German ZEW Investor Confidence reading for the year (Tuesday) is expected to come in a little changed at -24.0 indicating that pessimists continue to outnumber optimists, which in the light of the sharp decline in stock markets over the past weeks is hardly a surprise. The preliminary Eurozone Composite Markit PMI is seen rising to 53.0 from 52.7 in the previous month. The German reading (Thursday) to be confirmed at 2.2% y/y. This is in line with ECB’s upper limit for price stability, but with core inflation still considerably lower. Meanwhile Eurozone October industrial production (Wednesday) is seen rising 0.3% m/m after the correction of -0.3% m/m in September. Again, little more than a stabilization, with uncertainty over the outlook weighing on confidence, even if companies continue to hold a large number of unfilled orders and the labour market is looking increasingly tight in key countries such as Germany.


UK: It’s Brexit-time this week. The parliamentary vote on the government’s Brexit deal is Tuesday. As of late last week, it continued to look highly likely that the deal will be voted down, though there is scope for a surprise, should Eurosceptic MPs decide that this is the best they’re going to get. If the deal is rejected, it would immediately create scope for multitude scenarios in the coming weeks depending on how big the defeat is.


Japan: The December MoF business outlook survey (Tuesday) is penciled in at 4.0 from 6.5 previously. October machinery orders (Wednesday) are expected to have rebounded 9.0% m/m from the record 18.3% decline in September. That drop was much worse than expected, even when taking into account the various natural disasters. November PPI (Wednesday) should cool to 2.4% y/y from 2.9% amid the drop in oil prices. The October tertiary index (Wednesday) is forecast rising 0.5% m/m as activity in the service sector improves, following the -1.1% September decline. The December Tankan index (Friday) is estimated dipping to 17 from 19 for large manufacturers, and 20 from 22 for large non-manufacturers as some optimism slides amid ongoing trade and growth worries. October revised industrial production is also due Friday.


China: The November industrial production (Friday) is forecast slowing slightly to 5.8% y/y from 5.9%, while November retail sales (Friday) is penciled in at 8.5% y/y from 8.6%, though risk is to the upside after record “Singles Day” sales.


Australia: The Q3 housing prices index (Tuesday) is seen falling 2.0% (q/q, sa) after the 0.7% contraction in Q2. RBA Head of Domestic Markets Department Kohler speaks at the 31st Australasian Finance and Banking conference in Sydney (Thursday).

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 17th December 2018.






The Economic week ahead


Central bank meetings are the highlight, and include those of FOMC, BoE, BoJ, Bank Indonesia, Bank of Thailand, and Taiwan. Fed Chairman Powell is expected to play Santa Claus by delivering a 25 bp rate hike, wrapped in a dovish spin. Geopolitics remain important risk factors amid signs that tariff worries, Treasury curve inversions, China’s deceleration, Brexit uncertainties, Italy’s budget battles, and French riots are exacerbating a global slowing.


United States: The US calendar is dominated by FOMC meeting (Tuesday,Wednesday). Data is light and won’t factor materially into FOMC’s stance. FOMC is universally expected to deliver a 25 bps rate hike to increase the target band to 2.25% to 2.50%. Along with FOMC, there is also risk of a partial government shutdown at the end of the week. There won’t be any significant or meaningful impact on the economy from a temporary shutdown, but it could add to market nervousness and worries about the effects of reduced stimulus next year.


There are only a few tier one economic numbers this week and none will impact the FOMC decision. November personal income (Friday) is expected to rise 0.3% after a solid 0.5% pace in October. Consumption is expected to rise 0.3%. The December Empire State index (Monday) is expected to dip from 23.3 to 21.0. The Philly Fed index (Thursday) is seen rising to 19.0 in December from 12.9 in November.  Housing data are on tap, and all the November reports face downside risk from adverse weather and the California fires, but upside risk as prior disaster distortions are unwound. November durable goods orders (Friday) should rebound 1.7% in November, after a 4.3% October drop. The third reading on Q3 GDP growth (Friday) is expected unchanged at a 3.5% rate, though slower than Q2’s 4.1% clip.


Canada: It is a busy calendar and features several top-tier reports. Manufacturing shipments (Tuesday) are expected to rise 0.5% in October after the 0.2% gain in September. The CPI (Wednesday) is seen falling 0.4% m/m (nsa) in November after the 0.3% gain in October, as a 10% plunge in gasoline prices pulls the CPI lower relative to October. Retail sales (Friday) are projected to grow 0.5% in October after the 0.2% rise in September. GDP (Friday) is anticipated to rebound 0.1% in October after the 0.1% drop in September. BoC’s winter Business Outlook Survey (Friday) is expected to reveal a still upbeat outlook, although some caution may seep in given the daily swings in sentiment on the global trade outlook.


Europe: This week’s round of data releases should on the whole back the cautious stance of the central bank. The December German Ifo Business Climate (Tuesday) is expected to fall back to 101.7 from 102.0 in November, with the expectations reading in particular under pressure. The manufacturing sector looking shaky again amid fresh challenges for the automobile sector, which continues to struggle with emissions standards and the lingering diesel scandal, which has considerably undermined confidence, especially in Germany, where consumers are facing driving bans without compensation from producers.


Eurozone consumer confidence and German GfK consumer confidence (both Friday), are also likely to show the strain of negative headlines and dissatisfaction with government policies, despite ongoing improvement on labour markets and the forecasts for lower readings. The final reading of Eurozone CPI (Monday) is expected to confirm the core rate at just 1.0% y/y. The headline rate remains much higher at 2.0%, but remains impacted by base effects from energy prices, which are also underpinning very strong rates in German producer prices (Wednesday) and import price (Friday). The busy calendar also includes Eurozone trade and current account data as well as French consumption numbers and the final reading of French Q3 GDP. There also is ECB speak from Hansson (Wednesday).


UK: It’s “crystal clear” — in the words of European Commission President Juncker on Friday — that there won’t be any renegotiation by the EU, other than a clarification of the deal on offer. This suggests that the Withdrawal Agreement from the EU is headed for eventual failure in the UK Parliament. The parliamentary vote will be January; date undecided, but before the legislated deadline of January 21.


The calendar this week is busy and includes BoE’s December Monetary Policy Committee meeting (Thursday). However, this should prove to be a non-event for markets as no changes are all but certain. Data releases will be of limited interest given the now intense distraction of Brexit and associated political uncertainty in the UK. Data releases will be highlighted by the November inflation report, where CPI is expected to ebb to 2.3% from 2.4%. November retail ales and the third and final release of Q3 GDP are also due (Thursday and Friday, respectively).


Japan: BoJ announces policy (Wednesday, Thursday) with no changes expected. The November trade report (Wednesday) should see the deficit widen to JPY 700.0 bln from 450.0 bln previously. But there is risk from a weaker oil import bill. The October all-industry index (Thursday) is seen rising 1.5% from the prior 0.9% decline. November overall CPI (Friday) is penciled in sliding to a 0.7% y/y pace, half of the prior 1.4%, and to 0.9% y/y from 1.0% on a core basis.


Australia: The employment report (Thursday) is expected to reveal a 25.0k gain in November jobs after the 32.8k bounce in October. The unemployment rate is seen holding steady at 5.0%. The minutes to RBA’s December meeting are due on Tuesday. RBA held rates steady at 1.50% at the December 4 meeting. There are not any RBA speakers scheduled through year-end.


New Zealand’s calendar has Q3 GDP (Thursday), expected to slow to a 0.5% pace from the 1.0% rate of expansion in Q2 (q/q, sa). The trade deficit (Thursday) is projected to narrow to -NZ$1,000 mln in November from -1,295 mln in October. The next RBNZ meeting is February 13, 2019.

* FOMC Monetary policy and Conference – Expectations – A 25 bp tightening in the Fed funds rate is priced in. What will be key is what’s indicated about the 2019 rate trajectory.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 24th December 2018.






The Economic week ahead


Divergence between the rosier outlook on economic fundamentals of central banks and the darker omens signalled by the tightening up of the financial markets and deterioration in the commodity sector has grown.


Holiday thinned staffing in Europe, Asia and the US in the first half of the week will severely curtail trade, though what this means for volatility is anyone’s guess.


United States: Christmas week will be light on the data front and will include consumer confidence, new home sales and the advance indicator numbers. The Chicago Fed National Activity index (Monday) will be followed by the MBA mortgage market report (Wednesday), along with the Case Shiller home price index and Richmond Fed index. Initial jobless claims (Thursday) are estimated declining 4k to 210k in the week ended December 22, after rising 8k to 214k in the week of December 15. Consumer confidence (Thursday) is expected to slip to 135.0 in December, from 135.7 in November and New home sales (Thursday) should rise 2.9% to 560k in November. EIA energy inventories are also released. Advance indicators for December (Friday) should reveal an improvement in the trade balance for goods. NAR pending home sales (Friday) may rebound to 103.0 in November from 102.1, while Chicago PMI (Friday) is set to sink to 61.0 in December from 66.4.


Canada: For Canada, activity picks up in the first week of 2019, with the December employment report due on January 4. There is nothing from the Bank of Canada until the January 9 policy announcement.


Europe: There aren’t many full trading days left for 2018, with Germany, Switzerland, Scandi and many other European markets closed already on Monday for Christmas Eve and early closures in Paris and London, followed by a nearly full shutdown for Christmas on Tuesday as well as Wednesday. The shortened calendar week focuses on preliminary inflation data out of Germany and Spain on Friday. With import price inflation falling back sharply in November on the back of a sharp deceleration in energy price inflation we see the headline HICP rate for Germany falling back to just 1.9% y/y  from 2.2% y/y in the previous month.


Meanwhile, the ECB’s economic bulletin on Thursday is likely to be a close repeat of Draghi’s introductory statement at the last press conference and still send a cautiously optimistic message on the outlook


UK: London will be open for a half day on Monday before closing through to Thursday for the Christmas and Boxing Day holidays. Sterling markets will be as good as dormant until the new year, when the frustratingly unresolved Brexit solution will be back in sharp focus. The parliamentary vote on the Brexit deal and outline for a future relationship will take place in the week of January 14, before the legislated deadline of January 21.


Japan: Japan is closed Monday for Emperor’s Birthday. The economic calendar kicks off on Tuesday, with November services PMI (Tuesday), which is seen at a 1.2% y/y rate from 1.3%. The remainder of the docket comes on Friday and features December Tokyo CPI, which is expected to slow further to a 0.4% y/y pace, after sliding to 0.8% y/y in November from October’s 1.4% y/y. November unemployment is forecast at a steady 2.4%, with the job offers to seekers ratio unchanged at 1.62.


Australia: The calendar is empty in the final week of 2018, lacking economic releases or RBA speakers. The markets are closed Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday for Christmas. The next RBA meeting is on February 5, where no change to the 1.50% setting for the cash rate, is expected.


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

* Topix and Nikkei closed with gains of 4.89% and 3.88% respectively, following gains of nearly 5% in the US stock markets.


* The stock market bounce, amid thin volumes, was due to US 2018 holiday sales rising by 5.1 percent from a year ago to over $850 billion, the strongest gain in six years.


* The stock market rally did not push through to China, as the Hang Seng lost early gains and is down -0.46% while Shanghai and Shenzhen Comp are down -0.17% and -0.15%. The CSI 300 is hanging on to a slight 0.13% gain.


* DAX and FTSE 100 futures are moving higher, but US futures are in slightly negative territory, indicating that markets remain fragile and oil prices erased some of yesterday’s jump, leaving the front end WTI future at USD 45.98 per barrel.

Date : 7th January 2019.


MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 7th January 2019.






The Economic week ahead


Increased year-end volatility took a breather to kick off the first trading week of 2019. But after a streak of market pessimism with the major indices flirting with bear market losses, it would appear that upside surprise risks have prevailed for now.


This welcome turn of events was anchored by the “remarkably strong” jobs report that contradicted the financial markets’ worst fears about the deterioration of the economy that had virtually priced out further Fed rate hikes and even flagged risk of a rate cut by year end.


United States: US data on inflation and the ISM-NMI will be the focus in the week of January 7. However, due to the government shutdown, several of this week’s other releases may be delayed, including trade, factory orders, wholesale trade, construction spending, new home sales, and the advance indicators.


The Highlight is inflation, as that will be one of the prime movers of Fed policy going forward. Also key will be the ISM-NMI for the most up-to-date reading on the service sector. The NFIB small business optimism index is on tap (Tuesday), along with November JOLTS job openings (Tuesday), as well as consumer credit, seen rising $16 bln in November, compared to $25.4 bln in October. MBA mortgage market data arrives (Wednesday). Initial jobless claims (Thursday) are estimated to rise 5k to 236k in the week ended January 5 (Thursday), after climbing 10k to 231k in the week of December 29. The data are likely to be distorted by the government shutdown, along with the typical difficulty in holiday seasonal adjustments. The Treasury budget (Friday) may post a surplus of $5.0 bln in December, relative to a -$204.9 bln deficit in November.


Meanwhile, the rest of the economic calendar will be subject to the government shutdown. November factory orders (originally set for Monday) should post a 0.2% decline, with a flat reading for inventories. The November trade deficit (originally Tuesday) is expected to narrow to -$51.6 bln from -$55.5 bln. Wholesale inventories (originally Thursday) are seen falling 0.2% in November.


Fedspeak: Fed’s Powell will make another appearance this week before the Economic Club of Washington (Thursday), though there will be no text, only a moderated Q&A, no doubt reiterating the “patience and flexibility” formula that helped propel stocks higher Friday. The week rounds out (Thursday) with Richmond’s Barkin, Chicago’s Evans, St. Louis Fed’s Bullard and VC Clarida. The FOMC minutes (Wednesday) will be of interest, as the Fed hiked rates.


Canada: The BoC’s policy announcement (Wednesday) is the highlight this week. No change to the current 1.75% setting is expected for the policy interest rate amid a slowing economy, moderating inflation pressures and the hefty downside risk posed by weak oil prices to real sector growth.


Economic data has the November trade report (Tuesday) expected to reveal a -C$2.0 bln deficit in November from the -C$1.2 bln shortfall in October. Housing Starts (Wednesday) are seen falling to a 205.0k unit pace in December from 216.0k in November. Building Permit Values (Thursday) are projected to slip 0.5% in November after the 0.2% dip in October. The New Housing Price Index (Thursday) is anticipated to decline 0.1% in November (m/m, sa) after the flat readings in August, September and October. The December Ivey PMI is due Monday.


Europe: The ECB’s account of the last policy meeting (Thursday) is likely to reflect growing unease and there will have been broad support for the decision to phase out net asset purchases. The minutes aside, there is also ECBspeak from Villeroy (Thursday) and Mersch (Friday), who are likely to back the central bank’s official line.


The data calendar is busy and should support expectations for slowing economic momentum as global trade tensions and Brexit risks cloud over the outlook. The German November manufacturing orders (Monday) are seen falling -0.2% m/m, while industrial production (Tuesday) is seen rising a modest 0.3% m/m with a solid stock of orders still underpinning activity for now. Export growth is likely to have eased in November, but lower import prices should have helped to underpin the nominal trade balance which we expect to report a sa surplus of EUR 18.0 bln.


So far the labour market continues to improve as companies have a solid stock of orders to fill and an unchanged November unemployment rate is expected (Wednesday) of 8.1%. Improving labour markets and Black Friday sales, meanwhile are expected to have underpinned German and Eurozone retail sales (both Monday), which are seen up 0.4% m/m and 0.2% m/m respectively.


UK: The UK’s data calendar is relatively quiet, highlighted by November production data and monthly GDP data (Friday). The industrial output should recoup 0.2% m/m after dropping 0.6% m/m in October, while the y/y figure should come in at -0.7%. The BRC retail sales report for December will also be released (Thursday), which should affirm a robust holiday sales tally.


Japan: December Consumer Confidence (Tuesday) is seen dipping further to 42.5 from 42.9. The November Current Account surplus (Friday) should narrow to JPY 700 bln from 1,309 bln. December bank loan figures are also due Friday.


The China inflation data headline may show some further easing due to the drop in oil prices. December CPI (Thursday) is penciled in at a 2.0% y/y pace from 2.2% in November and 2.5% in September and October. December PPI (Thursday) is forecast at a 1.7% y/y rate from 2.7%. December loan growth and new Yuan loans are tentatively due Thursday, with the latter seen up CNY 800.0 bln from the prior CNY 1,250.0 bln increase.


Australia: The trade report (Tuesday) is seen revealing a widening in the surplus to A$2.5 bln in November from A$2.3 bln in October. Building approvals (Wednesday) are expected to fall 2.0% in November after the 1.5% decline in October. Retail sales (Friday) are projected to rise 0.2% in November after the 0.3% gain in October.


New Zealand: The next RBNZ meeting is February 13, 2019, in which no change to the current 1.75% setting for the OCR anticipated.

* FOMC  – Expectations – The FOMC statement will be released at 19:00 GMT. That will be followed by Chairman Powell’s press conference, which will now be a regular affair at each meeting, although forecasts will continue to be published quarterly. No one expects any action on rates tomorrow (including IOER).  We expect the statement to include the new watchword “patient,” along with “flexible,” with the latter perhaps a nod to the balance sheet, and stress on data dependency.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 15th February 2019.






FX News Today


* USD under pressure from that weak data yesterday, as US retail sales mix has revived concerns about the global growth outlook and without tangible results, markets seem unwilling to invest any more in trade talk hopes.


* Euro slipped under 1.1300 (1.285), as Germany’s flirt with recession has also shifted the focus to flagging growth in Europe, which has its own trade dispute with the US.


* GBP pressured from another lost Brexit vote for the Government, moving under 1.2800.


* Overnight Chinese CPI and PPI both missed expectations and Japanese Industrial Production remained woeful. Gains in AUD (under 0.7100) and NZD (0.6825) were reduced.


* Stock markets closed narrowly mixed on Wall Street with the USA100 managing a slight gain, while USA30 and USA500 were pressured by disappointing Retail Sales.


* In Asia most markets headed south, with Chinese indices underperforming. CSI and Shanghai Comp had rallied in recent sessions on hopes that another round of punitive tariffs could be avoided and that Trump would push out the March 1 deadline to give talks more time to progress, but the blue chip CSI 300 lost 1.58% today and the Shanghai Comp lost 1.13%, while the tech hub of Shenzen outperformed slightly, but also declined by 0.27%. The JPY dropped to 110.28 while Topix and Nikkei closed with losses of 0.79% and 1.13% respectively and the Hang Seng declined by 1.86%.

We did get a glimpse from Chairman Powell’s press conference, where he noted tighter financial conditions, along with tame inflation. And he said the onus is on price pressures to force a rate move.


* Australian labour data – The unemployment rate is seen holding steady at 5.0%.

Date : 21st March 2019.


MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 21st March 2019.






FX News Today


* The EU summit starts today and while Brexit is not the only topic on the agenda, it will likely dominate discussions, after PM May yesterday officially asked for an extension until June 30 and ruled out that she as Prime Minister would ask for a long extension.


* EU council president Tusk in his official response made it clear that a short extension will only be possible if the Withdrawal Agreement has been backed by MPs in London.


* Tusk did not rule out a long extension but as May has made it clear that she as PM won’t ask for one, that is currently not on the table.


* After an interesting meeting yesterday, the Fed was even more dovish than expected, suggesting that no rate hikes would take place in 2019, although leaving the window open for some hikes in 2020.


* Overall, the Fed commented that a patient, semi-neutral approach was the best at this point, after the cooling in growth and inflation. Justification was sought in slower growth, static payrolls, weaker household spending and a decline in overall inflation.


* In addition, the Fed also confirmed plans to taper in May, and then end in September, the balance sheet runoff.


* Trump, following the Fed, tweeted that tariffs on Chinese goods could be in place for a “substantial period”. Equities dropped, after increasing as a result of the Fed dovishness.


* Dow closed down 0.55% and under its 20 SMA. Asian shares are less impacted, but Japan is closed today.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* EURUSD pushed higher than the 1.14 level on the Fed dovishness, with expected Resistance at 1.1433, and then at 1.15. Indicators are supportive of a consolidation/downtrend mode this morning.


* GBPUSD is slightly regaining its losses, still moving around the 1.32 area, on a sideways channel, still below end-February highs. MACD and Stochastics can perhaps be interpreted as sending positive signals.


* USDJPY dropped heavily on the Fed announcement, crossing the 110.72 Support and its 200HMA. The next Support level is at 110.34, even though the MACD and Stochastics do not appear to agree with the downwards trend.


* XAUUSD gained significantly and is trading at $1319, while some downwards momentum continues to exist according to the indicators. The Fed decision did have a strong effect, as suggested yesterday, and the question is whether Gold can now break through the $1321 Resistance level, or will retrace to the $1313 Support.


Main Macro Events Today


* European Council Meeting (EUR, GBP, Full Day) – One of the most important European Council Meetings for the year, given that Theresa May will likely aim to provide justification for a Brexit delay.


* Employment Data (AUD, GMT 00:30) – While the Unemployment Rate is expected to have remained at 5% in February, employment change is expected to have eased, increasing by 15K compared to 39K last month.


* SNB Interest Rate Decision (CHF, GMT 08:30) – The SNB is not expected to surprise markets as the Swiss rate is forecast to remain at -0.75%.


* Retail Sales ex Fuel (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK Retail Sales are expected to have eased, growing by 0.2% on a m/m basis, compared to 1.2% in January.


* BoE Interest Rate Decision (GBP, GMT 12:00) – Shadowed by the ongoing political developments in Brexit, the BoE is not expected to proceed with any interest rate actions.


* CPI inflation (JPY, GMT 23:30) – National Core CPI for Japan is expected to have declined to 0.3% m/m in February, compared to 0.4% in January.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 2nd April 2019.






FX News Today


* Wall Street was higher overnight, followed by the better than expected US manufacturing ISM and construction spending reports (they offset disappointing retail sales).


* JGB yields still moved higher, in tandem with most Asian stock markets, but the buoyant mood in equities that dominated yesterday’s session turned a bit more muted, as the focus turned from revived hopes on a US-Sino trade deal and a recovery in the manufacturing sector to Brexit risks.


* RBA left monetary policy on hold amid increased downside risks, but seems to be awaiting the fiscal injection that is expected to be unveiled today.


* UK Parliament rejected all options on Brexit compromise, customs union close miss.


* GBP was under pressure due to revived concerns of a no-deal scenario.


* WTI crude rallied 2% to a fresh 5-mth high near $61.82, on supply side tightness.


* USDJPY lifted to 11-day highs amid risk-on; EURUSD hit 3-week low near 1.12.

Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* GBPUSD is under pressure once again, trading southwards below its Pivot for the 10th consecutive hourly session. A breach and break of S1 at 1.3025 could suggest the retest of 26-day Support at 1.2970.


* USDJPY printed an 11-day high at 111.45, as the safe haven premium of the Japanese currency unwinds. USDJPY has support at 111.20.

Overall outlook remains negative due to the descending triangle formation and the decreasing momentum indicators in the daily chart.


* BTCUSD – biggest mover – Spiked to 5013 from 4216. However, intraday the asset looks overbought, with RSI at 81, and a doji closing the past hour.


Main Macro Events Today


* UK Markit Construction PMI (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The Construction PMI is expected to improve to a 50.0 reading after dropping sharply in February to 49.5, which was the lowest reading since July 2016 (the month after the vote to leave the EU).

* Stock markets traded mixed, again with China underperforming, as markets await key trade numbers. Topix and Nikkei are down -0.10% and up 0.67% respectively.

* The Hang Seng lost -0.27% so far and CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp are down -0.49% and -0.26% respectively.

* Reports of impending cost cuts at Australia’s largest bank meanwhile helped the ASX to close with a gain of 0.76%.

* US futures are posting slight gains ahead of key earnings reports from JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo. The front end WTI future is trading at USD 63.83 per barrel.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD keeps trading above the 1.1276 level in the last few hours, after trading below that point through the night. A strong Resistance point remains at 1.13. Stochastics and the MACD show signals of a downwards move.

* GBPUSD keeps trading around the 1.30 mark, crossing its 20HMA early today, but with indicators showing mixed signals.

* USDJPY continues to increase and broke through the 111.68 level, and coming near the 111.80 Resistance. Stochastics and the MACD show an easing of the upwards movement.

* XAUUSD had a bad day yesterday, breaking through four Support levels and ending below 1294. Since then, it has been registering a slow upwards trend, something more evident in the Stochastics than the MACD indicator.

Main Macro Events Today

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 15th April 2019.




FX News Today

* The broad rise in Asian long yields holds as local stock markets rallied in catch up trade after a strong close on Wall Street.

* Trade talk hopes, signs of improving growth and low inflation, coupled with positive earnings reports continued to underpin stock market sentiment. Mnuchin suggested over the weekend that US-Sino talks are nearing the final round and that the final agreement would go “way beyond” previous efforts to open China’s markets to US companies.

* US futures are narrowly mixed while European stock markets are underpinned.

* Japanese markets are closing for 10 consecutive days from April 27 to May 6, inclusive.

* After the strong first quarter earnings report from JPMorgan on Friday the focus is now turning to Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and Bank of America.

* The front end WTI future is trading at $63.53 per barrel.

* USD and JPY lower vs most currencies, risk appetite up on strong China import data.

* GBP steady after EU Brexit extension; risk is it won’t resolve UK political gridlock.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD keeps trading close to 3-week highs of 1.1323. Stochastics, RSI and the MACD show signals of further improvement intraday. Next Resistance point holds at 1.1330.

* GBPUSD pulled back under 1.3100 after leaving a high at 1.3120. It is supported from the confluence of 200-period EMA and PP level the past 7 consecutive hours, at 1.3084. Next Support is set at 1.3065.

* USDJPY settled at around PP level at 111.90 . However after Friday’s high the positive sentiment is decreasing with intraday RSI and MACD turning lower as the overall outlook remains positive. The upside Resistance level is set at 112.19, while Support now comes in at 111.68.

Main Macro Events Today

* FOMC Member Evans Speaks – Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans is due to speak in a television appearance on CNBC’s Squawk Box.

* BOC Business Outlook Survey – The BoC’s outlook survey is expected to show an economy still moving along at a decent pace, but facing a number of challenges. This is a key report for the upcoming BoC announcement and MPR, as the Bank makes frequent references to the findings of the survey. A survey consistent with modest but still respectable growth, well contained inflation expectations and an unwinding in capacity pressures would line-up with our expectation for no change in rates later this month and through year-end.

* Empire State index – It is estimated to jump to 9.0 in April from a 2-year low of 3.7 in March.

Date : 22nd April 2019.


Events to Look Out for Next Week.






The shortened week starts with just one piece of news on Monday and Tuesday from the US, while Wednesday will be in focus as the UK Parliament returns from its Easter recess. US Durable Goods are out on Thursday along with the BoJ rate decision.


Wednesday – 24 April 2019


* CPI (AUD, GMT 01:30) – Australia’s inflation rate for Q1 is expected to have declined slightly to 1.7% y/y compared to 1.8% y/y in the final quarter of 2018.


* IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – Business climate in the largest EU country is expected to have grown marginally to 99.9 compared to 99.6 last month.


* Event of the week – BoC Interest Rate Decision (CAD, GMT 14:00) – At the BoC meeting, consensus expectations are that there should be no interest rate change. A sharper and more broadly based slowdown in the domestic economy, alongside a slowing in the global economy that has been more pronounced and widespread than anticipated saw the Bank state “the outlook continues to warrant a policy interest rate that is below its neutral range.”


Thursday – 25 April 2019


* Event of the week – Interest Rate Decision (JPY, GMT 02:00) – Among the core central banks, BoJ is firmly poised to be “low for longest”. Hence, once again BoJ is expected to keep the interest rate as it is, given that it appears to have finally had an impact on the Japanese economy.


Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – March durable goods orders are expected to rise 0.2%, following a 1.6% February decline. Shipments expected to fall 1.5% in March, after a 0.2% reading in February.


* Tokyo CPI and Production Data (JPY, GMT 23:30) – The country’s main leading indicator of inflation is expected to have remained at 1.1% y/y in April. Industrial Production is expected to have improved, growing by 0.6% m/m in March, compared to -1.1% m/m in February, while Retail Sales are expected to have increased by 1.2% y/y, compared to 0.6% in March.


Friday – 26 April 2019


* US Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – The economy’s most important figure, Q1 GDP is expected to rise 2.6%, following a 2.2% pace in Q4 and 3.4% growth in Q3.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 24th April 2019.






FX News Today


* Australia’s bond as well as stock markets rallied after inflation came in lower than anticipated at 0.0% q/q, down from 0.5% in the previous period and versus median expectations of 0.1%.


* Markets are convinced that the inflation miss will make a rate cut all but inevitable and 10-year yields plunged 10.5 bp, while the ASX jumped as much as 1.1% to a more than 11 year high, after already outperforming yesterday.


* Elsewhere in Asia markets were under pressure, however, despite the strong close on Wall Street, where sentiment was boosted by upbeat earnings reports.


* The USA500 and USA100 closed at record highs Tuesday


* Twitter stock surged more than 15% on earnings beat, while the Coca-Cola share price is up 2% as Q1 earnings revenue was $8.02 billion, topping projections of $7.88 billion. The concerns that China may slow the pace of policy easing and stimulus measures continue to weigh on sentiment.


* WTI oil softer today after surge to 6-mth high at $66.60 yesterday.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* USOIL softer at 66.00 hurdle after topping at a new nearly six-month high of $66.60. Overall,  outlook holds to the upside as the asset is sloping within an uptrend, with small corrections to the downside.


* USDJPY has continued to oscillate in a narrow range in the 111.75-112.00 area.  The focus this week will be on fresh signs that corroborate the return-to-growth picture in major global economies. A continuation of this theme would be supportive of currencies that performer with higher beta characteristics, such as the Dollar bloc units, while currencies of the low-yielding safe haven type, such as the Yen, would be apt to underperform. USDJPY has Support at 111.54-111.60, levels which encompass the prevailing position of the 200-day moving average.


* AUDUSD dove to 0.7026, just a breath above 3-year Support. It was driven by Aussie-specific losses following sub forecast CPI data out of Australia, which catalysed calls for the RBA to cut interest rates at its next policy review in May. A break of 0.7000 could open the way towards a December slip.


Main Macro Events Today


* IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – Business climate in the largest EU country is expected to have grown marginally to 99.9 compared to 99.6 last month.


* Event of the week – BoC Interest Rate Decision (CAD, GMT 14:00) – At the BoC meeting, consensus expectations are that there should be no interest rate change. A sharper and more broadly based slowdown in the domestic economy, alongside a slowing in the global economy that has been more pronounced and widespread than anticipated saw the Bank state “the outlook continues to warrant a policy interest rate that is below its neutral range.”

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 25th April 2019.






FX News Today


* The BoJ left rates unchanged, but clarified its forward guidance, saying it will keep rates very low at least through spring of next year.


* Also, they will expand the eligible collateral and also consider the introduction of an Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) lending facility, that would allow to temporarily lend ETFs that the Bank holds to market participants.


* Japanese stock markets outperformed going into the announcement, but mainland China indices were under pressure.


* Stock futures are moving higher in Europe and the US. The weaker than expected Ifo reading yesterday and a negative GDP print from South Korea overnight added to concerns about the outlook for world growth, which means rates will stay low for longer.


* The Swedish Riksbank is widely expected to keep monetary policy on hold today.


* The front end WTI future is trading at USD 65.91 per barrel.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* USDCHF is consolidating since last night within 1.01970-1.02190 range. However, the pair still holds above 1.0200, suggesting the continuation of the uptrend, as the pair remains well above the medium term Support at 1.0123 level (6 month Resistance converted to Support). Intraday, however, and as momentum indicators have been flattened, consolidation mode could possibly hold within the day. A cross below 1.0200 could retest yesterday’s lows.


* AUDUSD within the strong 3-year Support, 0.7000-0.7020. It could react as a retracement level for the asset. However, the 3 black crows in the daily chart suggest that negative bias is increasing for AUDUSD.


Main Macro Events Today


* Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – March durable goods orders are expected to rise 0.2%, following a 1.6% February decline. Shipments are expected to fall 1.5% in March, after a 0.2% reading in February.


* NZ Trade Balance (NZD, GMT 22:45) – The trade report is expected to show an improvement in the surplus to NZ$300 mln in March from NZ$12 mln in February.


* Tokyo CPI and Production Data (JPY, GMT 23:30) – The country’s main leading indicator of inflation is expected to have remained at 1.1% y/y in April. Industrial Production is expected to have improved, growing by 0.6% m/m in March, compared to -1.1% m/m in February, while Retail Sales are expected to have increased by 1.2% y/y, compared to 0.6% in March.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 26th April 2019.






FX News Today


* Asian stock markets drifted mostly lower as Japan heads for a long holiday week, and with earnings reports and data releases weighing in sentiment.


* Japan production unexpectedly contracted, which after the correction in South Korea GDP yesterday, added to signs of weakness in the region and also highlighted the contrasting strength of the US economy, after robust durable goods orders yesterday.


* President Xi Jinping said China won’t engage in currency depreciation that harms other nations.


* YEN: has been underpinned by safe haven demand amid growth concerns in Asia and European and flagging stock markets.


* The WTI future is trading slightly under USD 65 per barrel.


* Earnings reports and US GDP numbers will provide the main focus for markets today, with the local calendar holding only the UK CBI industrial trends survey.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* USDJPY fell to 2-week lows of 111.38 before rebounding again between the Pivot Point of the day and the 20-day SMa, at 111.60-111.75 area. The pairing fell from the 2019 highs seen into the Wednesday close, and ahead of what was expected to be and was, a dovish BoJ announcement. USDJPY has tried, and failed to hold the 112 mark for several weeks now, and may be entering a phase of shaking out some long positions, before being able to make fresh gains. Overall, risk sentiment will be a determining factor going forward, though with the BoJ on hold, and a chance for further easing ahead, USDJPY can be expected to eventually head higher.


* EURUSD bounced from its trend low of 1.1118 seen after the early round of US data, peaking at 1.1154. The USD generally turned lower through the morning session, appearing to be driven by a round of position squaring following earlier 2-year DXY highs. The Euro is expected to remain in sell-the-rally mode based on the fundamentals. The ECB economic bulletin signaled risks remain to the downside, underscoring the Bank will be “low for longer”. The next downside level remains at the 1.1100 level.


Main Macro Events Today


* US Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – The economy’s most important figure, Q1 GDP, is expected to rise 2.6%, following a 2.2% pace in Q4 and 3.4% growth in Q3.

Date : 29th April 2019.


MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 29th April 2019.






* We have a huge week ahead for markets, with two central banks policy meetings being in the spotlight, the BoE and the FOMC. Data-wise, we have some of the heaviest data, with Eurozone’s inflation numbers and GDP for the 1st Quarter of 2019, while the US Jobs report on Friday stands out as the event of the coming week.


Monday – 29 April 2019


* Personal Consumption Expenditures (USD, GMT 12:30) – A low reading of the Fed’s preferred inflation measure is expected to be negative for the USD. PCE inflation is expected to stand at 0.2% reading for February with a 0.1% increase for the core, which matches the headline February CPI and core figures. The March reading is expected at 0.4% PCE chain price and a 0.1% in the core index, which also matches the March CPI reading.


Tuesday – 30 April 2019


* Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Euro Area Preliminary GDP for the 1st Quarter is expected to have increased by 0.3% q/q, compared to 0.2% in the previous quarter, while it should remain flat at 1.1% y/y.


* Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 12:00) – The German HICP inflation was confirmed at 1.4% y/y in March. In April however, it is expected to rise to 1.6% y/y.


* Gross Domestic Product (CAD, GMT 12:30) – February GDP is expected to slow to 0.1%, compared to 0.3% last month, perhaps paving the way for an extended pause in rate hikes from the BoC lasting through mid-year.


* CB Consumer Confidence Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – The Conference Board Index is expected to have declined from 126.0 in April to 124.1 in March.


* Employment data (NZD, GMT 22:45) – Employment expected to keep growing in Q1, with  the employment change rising to 0.3%q/q from 0.1%q/q.


Wednesday – 01 May 2019


* ADP Employment Change (USD, GMT 12:15) – The April ADP Employment report should reveal a 175k gain for the month, after a 129k March gain.


* ISM Manufacturing PMI  (USD, GMT 14:00) – The Manufacturing PMI is expected to edge up to 55.0 in April from 55.3 in March.


* Interest rate Decision and Conference (USD, GMT 18:00) – The FOMC is expected to leave the funds rates steady and to continue tapering the balance sheet runoff and will taper it in May, and end it in September. However, the US economy is expected to continue strengthen, something that will eventually call for another rate hike later in the year.


Thursday – 02 May 2019


* Interest rate Decision and Conference (GBP, GMT 11:00) – BoE should remain on hold now until the Brexit D-day. If the transition runs smoothly we might see another 25 bp hike in May 2019. The BoE has cautioned that the outlook will “depend significantly on the nature of EU withdrawal,” and noted that “uncertainty has intensified.” Thus, consensus forecasts suggest no change in the policy rate in this meeting and an unchanged 9-0 MPC voting.


Friday – 03 May 2019


* Building Approvals (AUD, GMT 01:30) – The Australian housing sector has been facing issues in the past months, with building approvals surprisingly jump in February at fastest rate in over 5 years, at 19.1% . Consensus forecasts for March however suggest that a comeback could have occurred and hence, Building Approvals are expected to fall at 1.0%


* Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) –The Euro Area CPI is expected to come out at 1.6% y/y, above March’s outcome.


* NFP and Labour Market Data (USD, GMT 12:30)– April nonfarm payrolls are expected to have stood by 190k, with a 180k private payroll gain. Hourly earnings are expected to rise 0.3% for a y/y gain of 3.3%, up from 3.2% in March.


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

FX News Today

The official reading fell back to just 50.1 from 50.4.

* USOil remains under $63.50 and weighed by Fridays fall, GOLD pivots around $1280 but is capped at 1285


* Earnings reports from Alphabet disappointed. Overnight, US markets closed up but Futures are down again this morning.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* USDJPY fell again to test 111.50 and the S1 daily support at 111.48. USDJPY has tried, and failed to hold the 112 mark for several weeks now, and may be entering a phase of shaking out some long positions, before being able to make fresh gains. Overall, risk sentiment will be a determining factor going forward, though with the BoJ on hold, and a chance for further easing ahead, USDJPY can be expected to eventually head higher. 112.00 remains key resistance with the 200-day sma at 111.15.


* EURUSD made its way to four-session highs of 1.1184 after the London close, up from early lows of 1.1146. The core PCE price data released earlier was cooler than expected, which helped the Euro post modest gains. While the pairing is well up on Friday’s trend low, further gains will likely be tentative into Today’s preliminary CPI figures from the major EU countries and trades at 111.80, currently. Given ongoing softness in EU data, and an ECB likely to be lower for longer, EURUSD remains pressured. The next downside level remains at the 1.1100 zone.


Main Macro Events Today


* CAD Gross Domestic Product  (CAD – 12:30) – The economy’s most important figure, m/m GDP, is expected to rise 0.3%

* Consumer Board Consumer Confidence (USD-15:00) – Expectations are for a bounce to 126.2 in April from 124.1 in March.

Date : 3rd May 2019.


MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 3rd May 2019.






FX News Today


* Stock markets mostly managed slight gains in quiet trade across Asia as Japan and mainland China remained closed for holidays and with investors positioning for the US jobs report.


* BoE yesterday warned that in the central scenario of a smooth Brexit transition rates will have to go up more and faster than markets currently expect.


* Overnight big drop in Australian Building approvals as the market corrected from a big rise in February.


* Earnings also remained in focus with better than expected profits reported by HSBC helping to underpin shares in Hong Kong while a profit warning from Macquarie weighed on the ASX.


* US stock futures are also moving higher after closing broadly lower on Thursday, following alongside Treasury yields as the market further digested yesterday’s signal from the Fed that a rate cut is not on the menu this year.


* US-Sino trade talks also remain in focus and will add to volatility until a deal is finally on the table.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* EURUSD touched a low of 1.1165 into the London open. The pair dropped nearly 100 points from the highs, while the close yesterday under the 1.1200 mark suggests an increasing bearish bias for the Euro. Resistance now sits at 1.1200, or further up to 1.1220 (20 DMA), with Support at 1.1145, the April 29 low.


* USOIL failed to recover yesterday. It remains down nearly 4%, bottoming so far at $61.03. Price weakness has come following the EIA reporting US inventories at near 2-year highs on Wednesday. Supplies are expected to increase further in the next month, as refinery maintenance curbs crude demand. Hence, the $60.50 level is now a key Support, representing both the 50- and 200-day MAs.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 8th May 2019.






FX News Today


* The RBNZ became the first central bank in the developed world to begin loosening policy this cycle. NZDUSD drifted to 6-month low at 0.6525.


* German industrial production unexpectedly rose 0.5% m/m in March.


* Given the correction in orders in Q1 and manufacturing PMI readings that show the manufacturing sector in recession, not just in Germany, the better than expected German production number for March doesn’t change the overall picture of weakness in a sector that clearly is pressured by the combination of geopolitical trade tensions and Brexit jitters, with no sign of improvement, despite today’s upside surprise in the headline reading.


* The weaker than expected trade data out of China showed exports contracting and the trade surplus falling sharply added to ongoing concerns about developments in world trad.


* Brexit fatigue has driven the pound lower vs most other currencies today


* The front end WTI future is trading at USD 61.78 per barrel.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* EURUSD dropped to lows under 1.1170 after opening near 1.1200. The downward move came partly on safe-haven flows into the Dollar. Resistance comes at 1.1222, the 20-day MA, with support seen at 1.1135, Friday’s low.


* USDJPY has fallen to 110.16 lows, just below Monday’s 1-month base of 110.29. The pairing has been weighed down by another risk-off session, related to the escalating US/China trade war. Wall Street is sharply lower, while Treasury yields are down again today as well. Further equity losses will likely see the Dollar head below yesterday’s low, which them brings the March 25 bottom of 109.70 into focus.


Main Macro Events Today


* Canadian Housing Starts – April housing starts are expected to improve to 195.0k from 192.5k in March.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 9th May 2019.






FX News Today


* US President Trump confirmed that tariffs on a large chunk of China imports will rise to 25% on Friday from currently 10%, saying that China “broke the deal” and would pay.


* Fears that the hard line stance on China will also put the spotlight on imports from other countries put pressure on automakers in Japan and will also keep European stock markets in suspense.


* European stock futures are heading south in tandem with US futures, after a broad sell off in Asia.


* Ongoing Brexit jitters are adding to the risk-off backdrop in Europe, with no breakthrough in cross-party talks on a Brexit deal in sight and RICS house price data overnight showing that the housing market remains pressured.


* The WTI future is trading at USD 61.67 per barrel.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* EURUSD is moving higher into the EU session. It is currently retesting the 1.1200 area. The Euro was supported by stronger German industrial production released overnight, though the Dollar has since perked up slightly on safe-haven flows, as the US and China continue to play chicken with trade negotiations. EUR-USD resistance comes at 1.1217, which represents the 20-day moving average, with support at Tuesday’s 1.1167 low.


* EURCHF has settled into a choppy consolidation centred on 1.1400 after a 4-week rally, bellow the 6-month peak at 1.1476 in late April. The pronounced Swiss Franc underperformance that was seen during most of April was accompanied by narratives talking about the market being in the process of giving up on the Franc’s role as a safe haven currency, which has been afflicted by the SNB’s -0.75% deposit rate, and which finally seemed to have elicited down-weighting of Franc by reserve and portfolio overlay managers. On the year-to-date, the Swissie remains down by over 3.5% against the Dollar and by nearly 1.5% versus the Euro. Overall, Swiss policymakers’ efforts to both weaken the Franc and dethrone the currency from its safe-haven status look to be working.


Main Macro Events Today


* Trade Balance (USD, GMT 12:30) – Although less important than in other economies, the US trade balance still provides a useful overview of the overall economy and the Dollar supply in the world, especially as reducing it has been one of Trump’s main targets. Still, consensus forecasts suggest that the shortfall should widen slightly to -$49.9 bln from -$49.4 bln in February. A 0.7% rise for exports to $211.2 bln is expected and a 0.8% increase for imports to $261.1 bln.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 10th May 2019.






FX News Today


* Trading remained nervous ahead of the Friday deadline on tariff hikes.


* While comments from US President Trump that an agreement is still possible initially saw stock markets rallying in Asia, caution has since made a comeback as investors react to headlines.


* Japanese markets erased earlier gains and fell back into negative territory before stabilizing, and Topix and Nikkei are down -0.18% and 0.47% respectively as of 05:39GMT.


* The front end WTI future meanwhile is trading at USD 61.92 per barrel.


* German exports rebound in March – German trade data at the start of the session is showing another solid surplus in March and Q1, amid lingering fears that the focus of the US administration will once again turn to stagnant US-EU trade talks.


* European stock futures are moving higher, while US futures recovered most of their overnight losses and are little changed on the day, as it seems markets are set to buy into hopes that a deal will be reached eventually.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* USDJPY has been pushed down to 109.51. Another severe session of risk-off has weighed, with both Wall Street and Treasury yields getting hammered, keeping the pressure on the pairing. The pair managed to find some ground ahead of the EU session, and hence it is currently moving above PP level. However, as the overall outlook remains bearish, the February 4 low of 109.43 remains the next downside Support level, with a break there set to test the 109.00 level.


* USDCAD rallied to 2-week highs of 1.3505, finding support from modest Oil price losses, and a generally firmer USD. Light buy-stops were noted on the break of 1.3500, though follow through was limited. USDCAD is rangebound between 1.3505 and 1.3430.  April highs of 1.3516-1.3521 will need to be eclipsed to shift sentiment to a more bullish stance, otherwise overall consolidation holds.


* USOIL has remained rangebound, sticking inside of Monday’s trading band, between $60.00 and $62.92. Concerns over the US/China trade war have kept a lid on prices this week, due to the prospects for demand destruction. On the supply side, Libya exports (near 1.0 mln bpd) are at risk due to civil war in the country threatening further supply disruption on top of the shutdown in production from Iran and Venezuela due to sanctions, and the ongoing OPEC+ production cuts. As a result, risk would appear to be to the upside for oil prices in the coming sessions, regardless of trade worries.


Main Macro Events Today


* Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The economy’s most important figure, preliminary Q1 GDP is expected to be unchanged at 0.2% q/q.


* Consumer Price Index and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – The headline CPI is estimated to rise 0.4% in April, after a similar reading in March. The overall CPI is expected to be up 2.1% y/y, from 1.9% in March. US Core CPI is estimated to rise 0.2% in April, following a 0.1% increase in March.


* Labour Market Data (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The unemployment rate is expected to hold at 5.8% in April, however the employment change is forecast to increase to 1K, after the 7.2k loss in March.

Date : 13th May 2019.


Events to Look Out for Next Week.






Markets could keep being restive as the trade war escalates, with concerns rising regarding a response from China. Meanwhile, the main focus should turn to the US as the week ahead includes a heavy slate of economic reports that will include important updates on consumption, inventories, factory output, sentiment, and the housing sector.


* Tuesday – 14 May 2019


* Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The preliminary German HICP inflation for April was higher than initially expected, at 2.1% y/y. However the final reading is expected to fall back to 1.7% y/y.


* Average Earnings (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Average Earnings excluding bonus for March is expected to hold at 3.4%. The ILO unemployment rate (3-month) is expected to have remained at 3.9%.


* ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for May is expected to decline to 1.0 compared to 4.5 last month.


* Wednesday – 15 May 2019


* Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 06:00) – German Preliminary Q1 results are expected to come in stronger than expected at 0.3%, after confirmed at 0.0% q/q for Q4 2018. Eurozone prelim. Q1 GDP growth expected to be confirmed at 0.4% q/q.


* Retail Sales and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – We expect readings of 0.2% for April retail sales and 0.7% for ex-auto sales, following a 1.6% increase for the March headline and a 1.2% increase ex-autos. Unit vehicle sales slowed in April, and gasoline prices should continue to boost retail activity given an estimated 5.5% increase in the CPI for gasoline.


* Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The Canadian CPI is expected to slip to 0.3% from the 0.7% reading the past 2 months.


* Thursday – 16 May 2019


* Employment Data (AUD, GMT 01:30) – Australian labour market data is expected to deteriorate, as the unemployment rate expected to increase to 5.1% in April from 5.0% last month, while employment is anticipated at 14K from 25.7K in March.


* Housing Data (USD, GMT 12:30) – Both Building Permits and Housing Starts should jump in April, to a 1.215 mln pace and to 1.298 mln respectively, after a 0.3% and 0.2% decline seen in March. Overall, a stronger trajectory is expected for starts with a positive but slower pace for permits.


* Friday – 17 May 2019


* Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI for April is expected to slow down slightly, at 0.7% from 1% last month. However, the overall picture remains largely unchanged, with headline inflation remaining modest, but underlying inflation starting to firm. No reason then for the ECB to add additional stimulus measures to an already very accommodative policy stance, and “low for longer” remains the message not just from the ECB.


* Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – The preliminary May Michigan sentiment reading is forecast at 97.7, up from the final April sentiment at 97.2.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 15th May 2019.






FX News Today


* Stock markets continued to recover during the Asian session, after a positive close on Wall Street Tuesday. Topix and Nikkei gained 0.41% and 0.45% respectively.


* Volumes were thin indicating that there is not much conviction in the recovery as investors evaluate trade developments.


* Chinese data releases from Industrial output to Retail Sales data and investment all slowed last month and together with the fallout from tariff hikes that saw markets buying into hopes of further stimulus measures in China.


* President Trump overnight called on the Fed to “match” what he said China would do to offset the economic impact of the US tariffs


* US stock futures are also moving higher.


* The AUD was pressured by the weak China data.


* The USOIL struggled with source stories saying the API will report a 8.63 million Dollar increase in US stockpiles and is trading at USD 61.38 per barrel.


* German GDP growth expanded 0.4% q/q in Q1, in line with expectations and coming back from stagnation in the last quarter of 2018. The construction and machinery investment as well as private consumption were the main drivers of growth.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* EURUSD found Support into the 1.1200 level. The pair has mostly been stuck between its 20-day moving average at 1.1200 and its 50-day moving average at 1.1245 since the start of the week. A close above or below these levels may help determine direction for the remainder of the week.


* USDJPY has recovered slightly from earlier lows of 109.45, making its way to 109.67 highs so far. The rally on Wall Street, which has so far wiped out about a third of Monday’s sharp losses has provided some Support, as have steadier Treasury yields which were hammered lower yesterday as well. The uncertainty of the outcome of the US-China trade war however, will likely keep USDJPY upside limited for now.


* GBPUSD is back on a weakening path. A generally firmer dollar has seen Cable lead the way in the latest phase, with the pair printing fresh 2-week lows under 1.2910. This extends the quite-steep decline from the early May peak at 1.3176, which is the loftiest point reached over the last six weeks. As the risk of a disorderly no-deal Brexit remains a possibility, if not a probability and as the pair is a sharp decline for 8th day is a row, bearish outlook looks to hold strongly. Intraday, Cable has Resistance at 1.2928-1.1235 and Support at 1.2860 on the break of 1.2900 level.


Main Macro Events Today


* Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 06:00) – Eurozone prelim. Q1 GDP growth expected to be confirmed at 0.4% q/q.


* Retail Sales and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – We expect readings of 0.2% for April retail sales and 0.7% for ex-auto sales, following a 1.6% increase for the March headline and a 1.2% increase ex-autos. Unit vehicle sales slowed in April, and gasoline prices should continue to boost retail activity given an estimated 5.5% increase in the CPI for gasoline.




* Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The Canadian CPI is expected to slip to 0.3% from the 0.7% reading the past 2 months.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 17th May 2019.






FX News Today


* Treasuries sold off as risk appetite soured. Wall Street posted broadbased and solid intraday gains of over 1% Thursday.


* There was good news on the data front, as well as stellar earnings news from Walmart to add to the bullish tone in equities.


* Bank of Japan governor Kuroda said the ultra-low rates may be maintained for a further period of well over a year. However, Kuroda warned against the idea of propping up the economy through unlimited money printing saying that “when a central bank monetises debt unlimitedly, it will most certainly trigger hyper-inflation and cause huge demand to the economy”.


* There were comments in China state media saying China may have no interest in continuing trade talks with the US for now.


* The Yuan fell past the psychologically important 6.9 per dollar level, something that previously had been speculated to eventually lead to the selling of Chinese Treasury holdings to prop up the currency.


* The WTI future is trading at $62.98 per barrel. Geopolitical tensions in the Mideast continue to provide support, with the latest rally coming as Saudi Arabia blamed Iran and its proxies for attacks on Saudi oil infrastructure this week.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* EURUSD fell to 8-session lows of 1.1172 at mid-morning, slipping from opening highs near 1.1210. The early round of Dollar friendly US data saw the pairing start its decent, with selling pick up some pace on the break under the 20-day MA of 1.1197. The May 7 low of 1.1167 Support was reached , however the asset manage to hold above it so far today. A break there could open the door for a test of the May 3 low of 1.1135.




* GBPUSD’s low is 1.2787 in what is now the 5th consecutive daily decline and the eighth down day out of the last nine trading days. Resistance comes in at 1.2875-78. Next Support holds at 1.2700.


Main Macro Events Today


* Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI for April is expected to slow down slightly, at 0.7% from 1% last month. However, the overall picture remains largely unchanged, with headline inflation remaining modest, but underlying inflation starting to firm. No reason then for the ECB to add additional stimulus measures to an already very accommodative policy stance, and “low for longer” remains the message not just from the ECB.


* Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – The preliminary May Michigan sentiment reading is forecast at 97.7, up from the final April sentiment at 97.2.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd May 2019.

* The GER30 futures are heading south in tandem with US futures after a mixed session in Asia, where mainland China bourses underperformed.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 24th May 2019.






FX News Today


* Stock market sentiment stabilised during the Asian session and bargain


hunting helped at least Chinese markets to recover slightly.


* Australian Dollar continuing to outperform as markets position for a


rate cut from the RBA.


* US President Trump seemed to keep hopes of a trade deal alive, but it is


pretty clear that any agreement is still a way off and that will likely keep


market volatile for now.


* In Europe investors will be bracing for more political turmoil in the


U.K., which also raises the threat of a no-deal Brexit scenario once again, and


the fallout from the ongoing European Parliament elections.


* The marked widening of spreads clearly has attracted the attention of


ECB officials, which are one again eagerly campaigning for more risk sharing,


Eurobonds and a eurozone wide deposit insurance.


* The Oil prices have come slightly back from lows, although at currently


$58.65 per barrel, the front end WTI future is heading for a sizeable weekly


loss.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* EURUSD spiked up from 2-year lows of 1.1200 into European open. The


Euro’s new trend low, along with data misses prompted a quick and sharp short


covering driven rally yesterday, which has since seen EURUSD touch highs of


1.1187. With a good number of shorts squeezed out of the market, the pair could


enter a consolidative phase into the weekend.


* XAUUSD traded to 1-week highs over $1,287 yesterday, while today despite


the small selling pressure it manage to hold above the $1,282 area. Safe-haven


buying remains the mover, as global equities remained awash in a sea of red,


largely driven by escalating trade war fears. From there, a sharp reversal lower


for the Dollar added support to Gold prices. Solid resistance comes at the


psychological $1,300 level.


Main Macro Events Today


* Retail Sales and Core (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Following a correction in


March, Retail Sales are expected to slip this month by -0.4% m/m from 1.1% m/m.


* Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are pegged at -


1.8% in April, after a 2.7% figure in March. Transportation orders should be -


7.2%. Boeing orders should fall to the lean 28 area from an already-low 44 in


March, with a likely hit via problems with the Boeing 737 Max that may have


prompted buyers to delay new purchase commitments, while vehicle assemblies are


seen steady from a 10.8 mln pace in March.


Support and Resistance levels

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 31st May 2019.






FX News Today


* Risk aversion eventually won the day on Thursday, as stocks gave back modest early gains and yields drifted lower from opening highs.


* Bonds rallied as stocks were pressured by President Trump’s announcement that Mexico will be hit by 5% tariffs that will gradually rise to 25% in a bid to curb immigration.


* The latest escalation in the global trade war, coming after China’s manufacturing PMI fell more than expected and is now in contraction territory, added to fears that the world economy is heading for recession and sparked a new rally on global bond markets that left the 10-year Treasury rate down -4.5 bp at 2.168%.


* The WTI future fell back to $55.97 per barrel following the EIA inventory data which showed a 300k bbl fall in crude stocks. The Street had been expecting a 1.0 mln bbl decrease, though the API reported a 5.3 mln bbl draw after the close on Wednesday.


* European stock futures are selling off in tandem with US futures after a largely weaker session in Asia overnight.


* Today’s data calendar will likely underpin the rally in bond markets, with preliminary German and Italian inflation data set to confirm that Eurozone HICP fell back sharply in May, thus adding to the arguments of the doves at the ECB ahead of next week’s council meeting.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* USDCAD – H1 – found support under 1.3490 early in the session, later bouncing to 1.3547 highs (Wednesday’s post-BoC high) as Oil prices fell to fresh 2-plus month lows. WTI crude bottomed at $56.78, down from opening highs near $59.20. Year’s high at 1.3660-1.3664 is now the next Resistance level, with Support now at 1.3481, which was yesterday’s low.


* USDJPY – H1 – ran out of steam over 109.90. The pairing has since fallen back under 109.00, taking its cue from Wall Street, which has about squandered all of its earlier gains. The usual talk of Japan exporter offers from the 110.00 mark has been heard, which could have prompted some position squaring ahead of the level. In the bigger picture, trade wars and general risk-off conditions will likely limit further gains going forward. Next Support area between 108.00-108.50.


Main Macro Events Today


* Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 12:00) – The preliminary German HICP inflation for April jumped to 2.1% y/y from 1.4% y/y. However the reading for May is expected to fall back to 1.5% y/y.


* Personal Consumption Expenditures (USD, GMT 12:30) – The April income/consumption report is expected at 0.3% in income. It is also projected to show a 0.3% increase in the PCE chain price index versus a prior 0.2% gain, as well as a 0.2% rise in the core versus unchanged previously. Such gains won’t cause a ripple at the Fed as annual rates remain well below the Fed’s 2% target.


* Gross Domestic Product (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The Q1 GDP is expected to increase to 1.2%, after it  slowed to a 0.4% growth rate in Q4 from 2.0% in Q3 (q/q, saar).

Date : 3rd June 2019.


MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 3rd June 2019.






* Trade and geopolitics will continue to dominate the headlines into June along with PM May’s official resignation on Friday. Top of the agenda next week will be the RBA and ECB policy meetings, but a lot of attention will also be on the contemporaneous data on the May US Jobs report, the global PMI outcomes and the European Q1 GDP.


Monday – 03 June 2019


* Caixin Manufacturing PMI (CNY, GMT 01:45) – The Caixin manufacturing PMI is expected to slip into  the neutral zone in May, after the weak Manufacturing PMI signalled contraction yesterday.


* ISM Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM index is expected to rise to 53.5 in May from 52.8 in April, compared to a 14-year high of 61.4 in August. Overall, we’ve seen a stabilization in sentiment since the late-2018 pullback.


Tuesday – 04 June 2019


* Retail Sales (AUD, GMT 01:30) – Retail sales are expected to come out lower, standing at 0.2% m/m in April, after drifting to 0.3% increase in March from the 0.9% high in February.


* Interest Rate Decision (AUD, GMT 04:30) –A 25 bp reduction to 1.25% is anticipated from the current 1.50% rate setting as the RBA adds accommodation amid a slowing economy and low inflation. The minutes from the early May policy review were dovish-leaning, adding to the expectation that rates will be reduced in June.


* Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The preliminary Euro Area CPI for May is expected to drop back to 1.4% y/y from 1.7%y/y last month. The core inflation is seen at 1.0% y/y from 1.3% y/y.


* Fed’s Chair Powell speech (USD, GMT N/A)


Wednesday – 05 June 2019


* Gross Domestic Product (AUD, GMT 01:30) –  The Gross Domestic Product figure is probably the most important economic data announcement for a country, closely followed by the unemployment rate. The final Q1 Australian GDP is expected to grow to 0.3% from 0.2%.


* ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM-NMI index is expected to edge up to 55.7 in April from a 19-month low of 56.1 in March, versus a 13-year high of 60.8 in September.


Thursday – 06 June 2019


* Event of the week – ECB Interest Rate Decision (EUR, GMT 11:45) – The ECB is widely expected to keep policy rates on hold at the June council meeting, but the presser is likely to be very dovish, with the guidance on rates likely to be pushed well into 2020. The details on the new TLTRO programme are also due to be released and are likely to be generous, but rate tiering doesn’t seem to be on the agenda for now, as the assessment of the possible side effects on negative interest rates continues.


Friday – 07 June 2019


* Event of the Week – Non-Farm Payrolls (USD, GMT 12:30)  – Along with Thursday’s employment data, payrolls are important in gauging how many people are employed in non-agricultural businesses. Jobs are expected to have increased in May, at 190k following a 263k increase in April. The unemployment rate should remain steady at 3.6% from April, while average hourly earnings should rise 0.3% m/m, for a y/y gain of 3.2%.


* Employment and Unemployment (CAD, GMT 12:30) – After the 106.5k surge in April employment, which notched a new all-time record 1-month gain, the Canadian unemployment rate is expected to have increased further in May.

* German orders data better than expected, with manufacturing orders rising 0.3% m/m in April, while March data was revised up to 0.8% m/m from the 0.6% m/m reported initially.

* NZDUSD & NZDJPY – were the biggest movers and shakers yesterday in the forex markets, with the pairing and cross showing respective 0.6% and 0.7% gains at prevailing levels, with both modestly off highs. The outperformance of the Kiwi dollar, with buying having been catalyzed by RBNZ assistant governor, Hawkesby, vaulted the pair to a 4-week high at 0.7007. Overnight the pair turned lower to 0.6610, However however this could be a correction of the overbought asset. The overall outlook remains bullish as the asset extends Bollingers to the upside.




* USDJPY – H1 –  fell to 108.04 overnight, while the pair has since rebounded to 108.15 ahead of then London open. Given the slide in Treasury yields however, further upside for the pairing is likely to be limited. The next support level comes at the January 10 low of 107.77.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 7th June 2019.






FX News Today

* CSI and Shanghai Comp still lost -0.9% and -1.2% respectively and the tech heavy Shenzen Comp fell back more than 2% as Facebook announced that it will no longer preinstall its app on Huawei phones, spelling more trouble for the beleaguered tech company.

Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* EURUSD – has been consolidating in a narrow range in the mid 1.1200s, consolidating the steep losses from 1.1306 that were seen during the London PM/NY morning session yesterday. It is expected that the Dollar would likely hold up better than the Euro in the scenario that further sustained bouts of risk aversion is seen in global markets in the months ahead, with US Treasuries offering the highest risk-free return around, regardless of prevailing market discounting of Fed rate cuts. The pair remains in a bear trend which has been evolving since early 2018. This was reaffirmed by the new two-year low that was printed last month at 1.1107. Resistance comes in at 1.1300-06 and 1.1323-25.


Main Macro Events Today


* Event of the Week – Non-Farm Payrolls (USD, GMT 12:30)  – Along with Thursday’s employment data, payrolls are important in gauging how many people are employed in non-agricultural businesses. Jobs are expected to have increased in May, at 190k following a 263k increase in April. The unemployment rate should remain steady at 3.6% from April, while average hourly earnings should rise 0.3% m/m, for a y/y gain of 3.2%.


* Employment and Unemployment (CAD, GMT 12:30) – After the 106.5k surge in April employment, which notched a new all-time record 1-month gain, the Canadian unemployment rate is expected to have increased further in May.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 10th June 2019.




* Moving into a new week, the focus is now squarely on the UK mess  and the Conservative Party’s leadership contest. Market attention is also honed in on the G20 meeting but also on the US economic data which will be scrutinized for any sign that trade uncertainties are impacting amid a slowing in economic growth.

Monday – 10 June 2019

* Gross Domestic Product (JPY, Sunday GMT 23:50) – Growth in Japan is expected to have increased by 0.4% in the first quarter, slightly lower than last time, reflecting weaker than expected household spending. The annualised outcome is seen at 1.8% after the stronger than expected 2.1% growth.

* Trade Balance (CNY, GMT 02:00) – May’s exports are anticipated to contract to 3.8% y/y, from the 2.7% y/y. The trade balance should grow to $20.5bln in May from $13.83B in March. This report will be consistent with ongoing slowing in China’s domestic economy (falling imports) and the impact of the trade war with the US (drop in exports).

* Industrial and Manufacturing Production (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The two indices are expected to have fallen back to 0.1% m/m and 0.2% m/m in April, confirming that the sector is back in contraction.

Tuesday – 11 June 2019

* Average Earnings Index 3m/y (GBP, GMT 08:30) – UK Earnings with the bonus-included figure are expected to rise to 3.4% y/y in the three months to April, up from 3.2%y/y in March.

* ILO Unemployment Rate(GBP, GMT 08:30) – UK unemployment is expected slightly higher at 3.9%, after it unexpectedly fell to 3.8% in March, which was the lowest rate seen since December 1974.

Wednesday – 12 June 2019

* Consumer Price Index (CNY, GMT 01:30) – May’s Chinese CPI is expected to grow to 2.7% y/y following the rise of 2.5% y/y in April.

* Consumer Price Index and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – May’s CPI has been estimated at a 0.1% gain in headline CPI with a 0.2% increase in core prices, following respective April readings of 0.3% and 0.1%. As-expected gains would result in a headline y/y gain of 1.9%, down from 2.0% in April, while core prices should rise 2.1%, a steady pace from April. Overall, the inflation outlook remains benign, though with an updraft into the end of Q1 and early Q2 from a petroleum price rebound that lost steam into May.

Thursday – 13 June 2019

* Employment Data (AUD, GMT 01:30) – While the Unemployment Rate is projected to have flipped at 5.1% in May, Employment change is expected to have eased, increasing by 14K compared to 28.4K last month.

* Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The German HICP inflation fell back in April to 1.3% y/y from 2.1% y/y. In May however, it is expected to rise to 2.1% y/y again.

* SNB Interest Rate Decision and Press Conference (CHF, GMT 07:30) – The SNB is not expected to surprise markets as the Swiss rate is forecast to remain at -0.75%. However, the recent strengthening of the Swiss franc will have rekindled SNB concerns of its disinflationary impact.

Friday – 14 June 2019

* Retail Sales and Industrial Production (USD, GMT 12:30) – Retail Sales are expected to have grown by 0.6% for May and 0.3% for ex-auto sales, following a -0.2% figure for the April headline and a 0.1% increase in ex-autos. Industrial production is projected at 0.6% in May, after a -0.5% reading in April.

* Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – The preliminary result of the Sentiment Index is expected to show a return to April’s number below 100, and more specifically to 98.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 11th June 2019.






FX News Today


* Stock markets continued to move higher during the Asian session, once again led by China after the US-Mexico deal also revived hopes of a US-Sino deal, despite Trump’s comments.


* President Trump: China deal is going to work out; but no deal means more tariffs.He said that he is ready to impose another round of tariffs on Chinese imports if there is no progress in talks with China’s President at the June 28-29 G20 summit.


* The expectations that China will ramp up stimulus programs to boost the flagging economy were boosted by news that China will allow local government to use proceeds from special bonds as capital for major investment projects.


* European stock futures are also moving higher as are US futures.


* US futures are up 0.3-0.4% and the WTI future is trading at $53.74 per barrel.


* The yen crosses lifted higher as the Japanese currency lost ground as the relief rally on easing trade tensions in equity markets continued.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* USDJPY lifted by over 30 pips in the hours after the Tokyo fixing today. USDJPY printed an intraday high at 108.64, but has so far remained shy of yesterday’s 11-day peak at 108.71. This week it has breached above its prior-week peak for only the second time out of the last 7 weeks. The pair could continue to hold a better footing for now, especially with the planned meeting between top-level US and Chinese officials at the upcoming G20 serving to arrest what had started seem an irrevocable downward spiral in relations between Washington and Beijing. It has support 108.32-35, and resistance at 108.91-94.


* EURUSD moved back above the 1.1300 mark, though well under Friday’s near 3-month high of 1.1347. The pricing in of US rate cuts will limit EURUSD’s downside potential going forward, though the ECB’s dovish policy stance will limit the Euro’s advances. As a result, range trade mentality may be in the cards for the time being. Support comes at Friday’s 1.1252 bottom, with resistance at Friday’s high, then the 200-day moving average at 1.1367.


* Gold Futures retreated from Friday’s near 4-month high of $1,347.70, falling to $1,325. The moderate sell-off was driven by the return of risk-on conditions. The news that the US would not impose tariffs on Mexican goods helped the Dollar recover and saw yields and equity markets move higher, all gold-negatives.


Main Macro Events Today


* Average Earnings Index 3m/y (GBP, GMT 08:30) – UK Earnings with the bonus-included figure are expected to rise to 3.4% y/y in the three months to April, up from 3.2%y/y in March.


* ILO Unemployment Rate(GBP, GMT 08:30) – UK unemployment is expected slightly higher at 3.9%, after it unexpectedly fell to 3.8% in March, which was the lowest rate seen since December 1974.


* Producer Price Index ex Food & energy (USD, GMT 12:30) – A flat rate is anticipated for headline PPI in May, and a 0.2% rise in the core index.

FX News Today


* Market sentiment turned cautious again ahead of the G-20 summit.


* Bund yields declined from the off, as Treasuries rallied following President Trump’s criticism.

As a result, range trade mentality may be in the cards for the time being. Support comes at Friday’s 1.1252 bottom, with Resistance at Friday’s high of 1.1347, then the 200-day moving average at 1.1367.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 13th June 2019.






FX News Today


* Treasury yields have fallen back -1.2 bp to 2.108%, as weaker than expected CPI numbers out of the U.S. yesterday adding to speculation of rate cuts in the US.


* Fed funds futures price in about 80% chance for rate cut by by end of July.


* Asian bond markets were mostly supported, although JGBs corrected and the 10-year yield moved up 0.5 bp to -0.118% as a stronger Yen curbed investor appetite for Japanese assets.


* Stock markets mostly remained under pressure in Asia, with the Hang Seng declining -0.79% as large political demonstrations continue to unsettle investors.


* In Europe German HICP for May was confirmed at just 1.3% y/y this morning, which together with the decline in market based indicators for inflation expectations will also keep easing speculation alive as stock markets remain weighed down by geopolitical trade jitters.


* Oil prices continued to decline, with trade jitters continuing to weigh on sentiment and the  WTI future is currently trading at USD 51.43 per barrel, up from yesterday’s lows, following the EIA inventory data which showed a 2.2 mln bbl rise in crude stocks.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* WTI crude fell at $50.70 following the EIA inventory data which showed a 2.2 mln bbl rise in crude stocks. The street had been expecting a 0.5 mln bbl decrease, though the API revealed a 4.9 mln bbl build after the close on Tuesday. Overall, a fairly bearish report, which added further pressure on the USOIL downtrend. In the near-term the outlook remains bearish as well, while only a break above 52.80 could suggest a short term reversal to the upside.


Main Macro Events Today


* SNB Interest Rate Decision and Press Conference (CHF, GMT 07:30) – The SNB is not expected to surprise markets as the Swiss rate is forecast to remain at -0.75%. However, the recent strengthening of the Swiss franc will have rekindled SNB concerns of its disinflationary impact.


* Unemployment Claims (USD, GMT 12:30) – Initial jobless claims for the week of June 7 are estimated to fall to 217k, after holding at 218k in the week of June 1.

Trade this week has been centered on the 1.1300 mark, and further consolidation is expected ahead of next week’s FOMC policy announcement. There is not much of a chance for a rate move next week, but the FOMC is expected to make an important change in its statement, removing the word “patient” and likely replacing it with language similar to Powell’s comment from June 4 where he said the Fed will be “closely monitoring the implications of these developments” on trade and other matters. Until then, EURUSD can be expected to remain between its 50-day moving average at 1.1219, and its 200-day moving average at 1.1363.


* USDJPY has been rangebound,topping at 108.53 before later ebbing back to 108.23 lows. Treasury yields however, continue under pressure following benign CPI on Wednesday, and soft import prices early on Thursday, putting some pressure on the Dollar. As a result, USDJPY has been nearly static. Further consolidation is expected into next Week’s Fed policy announcement.


Main Macro Events Today


* Retail Sales and Industrial Production (USD, GMT 12:30) – Retail Sales are expected to have grown by 0.6% for May and 0.3% for ex-auto sales, following a -0.2% figure for the April headline and a 0.1% increase in ex-autos.

* Inflation Report Hearings (GBP, GMT N/A) – The BoE Governor and several MPC members testify on inflation and the economic outlook before the Parliament Treasury Committee.

Tuesday – 18 June 2019

* RBA Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30) – The RBA Minutes are expected to shed some light regarding an eventual rate hike (RBA is cautiously optimistic on growth and inflation).

* Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Prices are expected to fall in May to just 0.3%m/m from 0.7%, whilst the overall inflation is expected to stand unchanged at 1.2%y/y.

* ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for June is expected to rise slightly at -0.5 compared to -2.1 last month, however the negative reading means pessimists once again outnumber optimists and that escalation in US-Sino trade relations affects the outlook.

Wednesday – 19 June 2019

* Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Prices are expected to move up in May, with overall inflation to increase at 2.2% y/y, compared to 2.1% y/y last month.

* Consumer Price Index and Core (CAD, GMT 12:30) – May CPI is expected to run at a 2.0% y/y pace, matching the 2.0% clip in April and coming in just ahead of the 1.9% clip in March. Hence, the focus is on the “core” CPI figures.

* Event of the week – Interest rate Decision and Conference (USD, GMT 18:00) –Fed easing expectations have plateaued (Fed funds futures now fully discounting a 25 bp rate cut by the July FOMC). Although, there is not much of a chance for a rate move next week, but the FOMC is anticipated to make an important change in its statement, removing the word “patient” and likely replacing it with language similar to Powell’s comment from June 4 where he said the Fed will be “closely monitoring the implications of these developments” on trade and other matters.

* Gross Domestic Product (NZD, GMT 22:45) – The Q1 GDP is expected to grow at 0.7% compared to 0.6% last quarter, while the annualised rate should fall to 1.8% from 2.3%.

Thursday – 20 June 2019

* Interest Rate Decision (JPY, GMT 02:00) –The BoJ should maintain its current extraordinary level of stimulus as they wait and see how global growth progresses this year. Hence policy is expected steady once again. Among the core central banks, the BoJ is firmly poised to be “low for longest”.

* Interest rate Decision and Conference (GBP, GMT 11:00) – BoE should remain on hold now until the Brexit D-day, while the Brexit process has essentially been frozen in motion as the Conservatives go about the business of selecting a new party leader/prime minister. If the transition runs smoothly we could see another 25 bp hike quickly thereafter. The consensus forecasts suggest no change in the policy rate in this meeting and an unchanged 9-0 MPC voting.

Friday – 21 June 2019

* Markit Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30) – The Preliminary Manufacturing PMIs in Germany and Eurozone are expected to increase in June, to 44.5 and 48.1 respectively.


* Retail Sales and Core (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canadian sales are expected to slip 1% in April, with a 0.9% gain excluding autos, following a 1.1% figure for the March headline and a 1.7% increase ex-autos.


* Markit Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – The Preliminary Manufacturing and Services PMIs are expected to increase in June, to 52.5 and 53.2 respectively.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 18th June 2019.






FX News Today


* Wall Street was managed modest gains, supported by a better than 1% rise in industrials which offset a drop in materials. The markets generally shrugged off a sharp drop in the Empire State manufacturing index and a weaker than expected NAHB housing market index.


* Asia stock market gains were capped by caution ahead of the Fed meeting.


* Topix and Nikkei lost -0.88% and -0.81% respectively as the Yen strengthened, the Hang Seng continued to recover and moved up 0.70% after being pressured by political protests last week.


* The ASX gained 0.54% after getting cut a boost from RBA meeeting minutes signaling another rate cut could be underway.


* GER30 and UK100 futures are trading narrowly mixed.


* US futures are slightly in the red.


* Speculation that the Fed will signal rate cuts is mounting and in Europe ECB officials seem to be readying further easing measures, while the BoE is widely expected to remain on hold amid ongoing Brexit uncertainty.


Charts of the Day





Technician’s Corner


* AUDUSD also fell to a 5-month low, at 0.6833. The underperformance of the Australian follow was catalyzed by the release of the RBA minutes to the June policy meeting, which saw the central bank cut its cash rate to a record low of 1.25%. The minutes showed that the RBA is of a mind to ease policy again, as soon as July, given prevailing concerns about unemployment and disinflation. AUDJPY pegged below 3-year lows at 74.50, hence next Support is at June 2016 low at 72.40 .


* GBPJPY has hit fresh lows, and the yen has remained bid amid a backdrop of continued sputtering in global stock markets. GBPJPY daily volatility has fallen from 140 pips in February to less than 120 today. Key Support levels for both pairs sit at 133.80 and 132.30 respectively.


Main Macro Events Today

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 19th June 2019.




FX News Today

* Expectations that global central banks will add further stimulus to underpin the global economy and fresh hopes that global trade tensions will be resolved through talks after all underpinned stock markets during the Asian session.

* US President Trump tweeted yesterday that he will meet China’s President Xi Jinping at the G-20 meeting, which helped to lift CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp 1.96% and 1.50% respectively.

* Bond markets closed below highs yesterday and the gains are likely to erode further today as the focus shifts to the FOMC announcement.

* GER30 and UK100 futures are slightly in the red with profit taking and renewed caution capping the room for further gains.

* German PPI data at the start of the session came in lower than anticipated.

* The WTI future benefited from fresh trade talk hopes and is trading marginally above the USD 54 per barrel mark.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* USDJPY has drifted moderately lower, to levels around 108.26. The dip reflects a pick up in demand for the Yen. Overall, directional impulse has been limited in forex markets with participants hunkered down ahead of the Fed policy announcement later on Wednesday. All eyes will be on the Fed, where there is risk of disappointment given the level of expectation for a strong dovish guidance. USDJPY is presently sitting near the midway of a choppy sideways range that’s been unfolding for nearly 3 weeks now. The range over this time has been 107.81 – 108.80. Support comes in at 108.00-06.

* USDCAD – The Canadian dollar, buoyed by a 4.5%-plus rally in Oil prices over the last day, has seen some moderate outperformance, which has taken USDCAD to a 3-session low at 1.3365. Underpinning Oil prices (aside from Mideast geopolitics) and equity markets have been hopes for a strongly dovish signal from the Fed today, yesterday’s dovish shift by the ECB chief, and news that President Trump will be meeting with President Xi at the upcoming G20, and that ministerial-level trade negotiations will be recommencing. For the pair, Support holds at 1.3354 and 1.3336, while Resistance is at 1.3390-1.3400.

Main Macro Events Today

* Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Prices are expected to move up in May, with overall inflation to increase at 2.2% y/y, compared to 2.1% y/y last month.

* Consumer Price Index and Core (CAD, GMT 12:30) – May CPI is expected to run at a 2.0% y/y pace, matching the 2.0% clip in April and coming in just ahead of the 1.9% clip in March. Hence, the focus is on the “core” CPI figures.

* Event of the week – Interest rate Decision and Conference (USD, GMT 18:00) –Fed easing expectations have plateaued (Fed funds futures now fully discounting a 25 bp rate cut by the July FOMC).

* Gross Domestic Product (NZD, GMT 22:45) – The Q1 GDP is expected to grow at 0.7% compared to 0.6% last quarter, while the annualised rate should fall to 1.8% from 2.3%.
