Date : 20th July 2020.

Events to Look Out for This Week.




The week ahead will be a quiet one due to the limited economic releases, with the most telling data the preliminary estimates of July manufacturing PMIs from across the globe.

Monday – 20 July 2020

PBoC Interest Rate Decision (CNY, GMT 01:30) – The People’s Bank of China announced heavy government and PBoC stimulus measures in the 1st half of the year. However, China’s central bank isn’t planning much more stimulus for the country as its economy looks to be recovering.

National CPI Index (JPY, GMT 23:30) – The Japanese price index should have zeroed on a y/y basis, compared to 0.1% in May.

Tuesday –  21 July 2020

RBA Minutes (AUD, GMT 00:30) – The RBA minutes will provide more insight on the views the Australian Central Bank has about the economy.

Retail Sales (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Core Canadian sales ex Autos are anticipated to have dropped by -13.5% m/m in May, but higher than April’s drift at -22% m/m.

Wednesday – 22 July 2020

BoJ Consumer Price Index and Core (CAD, GMT 12:30) – June BoC CPI is expected higher at 0.9% y/y from 0.7% y/y and at 0.2% m/m from 0.3% m/m in May.

Existing Home Sales (USD, GMT 13:00-14:00) – A 22.8% rebound is anticipated in existing home sales in June to a 4.800 mln pace, after a drop to 3.910 mln in May. The MBA purchase index surged by 40% in May and 17% in June, before a 3% rise thus far in July, after falling -21.8% in April. Existing home sales are tracked at closings, so sales by this measure remained weak into May even though the sector was bouncing. The median sales price is expected to rise to $285,000 in June to leave a y/y decrease of -0.1%, down from a 2.3% y/y rise in May, with potential downward pressure from a skewing of sales toward lower-cost areas. In Q1, we saw an average sales pace of an elevated 5.483 mln, and we expect a lower 4.347 mln pace in Q2.

Thursday – 23 July 2020

Jobless Claims (USD, GMT 12:30)–  US initial jobless claims declined -10k to 1,300k in the week ended July 11 following the -98k drop in the July 4 week to 1,310k (was 1,314k). It’s a 15th straight weekly decline since the record surge to a historic peak of 6,867k in late March.

Friday – 24 July 2020

Retail Sales (GBP, GMT 06:00) – Following the -9.8% m/m contraction in UK retail sales ex fuel in May, they are expected to decline further by -14.4% in June.

Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 08:00) – June PMIs marked contraction in manufacturing activity and a sharp slowdown in services sector growth. This picture is likely to be seen again in the preliminary readings for July, as German Manufacturing PMI has been forecast at 41.5 and composite at 44.2, which it is still below neutral. Meanwhile, Services PMI is expected to fall to 42.0. The Manufacturing and Services PMI for Eurozone is seen at 44.5 and 41 respectively.

UK Service PMI (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The preliminary services PMI for July are seen to remain in contraction levels at 47.0.

Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing are expected to slip in July, to 48 from 49.8.

EU leaders reach a deal – EUR mixed.



USDCAD, H1

EU leaders reach agreement on recovery fund, 7-year budget. After the second longest summit on record EU leaders managed to find a complex compromise on the EUR 750 bln pandemic recovery fund and the next seven year budget, which together amount to an unprecedented EUR 1.82 trillion. That these discussions would not be easy was clear from the outset, and after marathon talks the compromise is a complex system that aims to accommodate all sides.

The portion of grants in the pandemic recovery fund was scaled back to EUR 390 bln from EUR 500 bln in the original proposal. There is also a new system that allows states to stop handouts by qualified majority over rule-of law violations, a move that finally appeased Dutch Premier Rutte, who had voiced concern over some legislation in Poland and Hungary. The Netherlands and Austria were also among the countries securing larger budget rebates in exchange for agreeing to cash handouts, rather than conditional loans that require budget oversights in the recovery fund. The European Commission will also be tasked with coming up with proposals on protecting the EU budget and recovering spending more effectively.

All in all a complex deal – typical for the EU – and while a deal is on the table, the EUR is heading south in what looks like a “buy the rumour sell the fact move” that likely also reflects some disappointment over the lower portion of grants in the recovery fund. EURUSD is currently trading at 1.1447 (above PP), while the Pound is little changed from yesterday against the Dollar and higher against the EUR.

GER30 and UK100 futures are up 0.5% and 0.4% respectively and US futures are also making headway, with the USA100 outperforming again.



BTPs already rallied yesterday, there may be some consolidation today, especially as the final portion of grants was lower than in the original proposal at EUR 390 bln out of a EUR 750 bln total.

FX Update – July 22 – Dollar & Yen Down.



AUDUSD, H1

The Euro, along with the Aussie and Kiwi Dollars, posted fresh highs against the Dollar and Yen, despite a backdrop of flagging stock markets. EURUSD reached its highest level since January 2019, at 1.1547, the culmination of what has now been a five-week rally. EURJPY pegged a fresh six-week high at 123.34. Most other Euro crosses are also firmer, though remain below recent highs. Cable has moved below 1.2700, to 1.2660, below Tuesday’s six-week peak at 1.2768. USDJPY plied a narrow range just above the one-week low seen yesterday at 106.68, while EURJPY and the risk-sensitive AUDJPY scaled to respective six-week highs. GBPJPY and CADJPY, in contrast, remained below their respective six-week highs, which had been printed yesterday. AUDUSD reached a new 15-month peak at 0.7165, while NZDUSD ascended further into 18-month high territory. USDCAD settled around the 1.3450 mark, above the six-week low seen yesterday at 1.3422, concomitant with front-month USOil futures at $41.50, below the three-and-a-half month peak that was left at $42.40 yesterday.

Gold and silver prices have continued to surge, reflecting investors’ expectation for global monetary stimulus taps to remain open and the Dollar to remain weak. The gains in the non-yielding assets also reflect concerns that inflation might spike as a consequence of the stimulus. XAUUSD rallied to $1865 earlier before cooling to the $1850 zone, whilst XAGUSD ran to $22.80 (October 2013 highs) before trimming gains to R1 at $21.70.

In other news, the UK’s Telegraph newspaper reported that the UK government is pessimistic about reaching a trade deal with the EU, just days before Prime Minister Johnston’s end-of-July deadline for reaching a deal in principle. The FT also reported, citing unnamed senior government officials, that the UK government has abandoned hopes for reaching a trade deal with the US before the presidential election in November, which means that there will be zero hope for a deal by the time Britain leaves the EU’s single market at the end of the year. The pandemic gets the blame for the slow progress.

FX Update – July 23 – USD Trends Lower.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

The Dollar has continued to track lower, despite a backdrop of flagging stock markets in Asia, although US equities closed with moderate gains yesterday and S&P 500 futures are showing a modest rise in overnight trading. The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex (DXY) printed a fresh four-and-a-half-month low at 94.82, drawing in on the early March low at 94.66, which was the lowest level seen since August 2018.



EURUSD has been buoyant, though has remained below the 21-month high that was printed yesterday at 1.1601. The pair is amid its fifth week of an accelerating rally phase, underpinned both by broader dollar weakness (amid shifting risk premia in global markets) and broader euro outperformance (on the back of the EU recovery fund, seen as reducing Eurozone breakup risk while creating a new liquid AAA fund that will attract foreign investment). The common currency has been gaining against most other currencies recently, outside the case against the outperforming commodity currencies. The research team at Goldman Sachs is anticipating a further 10% gain in the Euro. EURJPY has seen a similar price action to EURUSD today, in holding off yesterday’s seven-week peak. Other euro crosses have also been steady.



Elsewhere, USDJPY has continued to ply a narrow range near the 107.00 level. Cable remained buoyant, settling in the lower 1.2700s, below Tuesday’s six-week high at 1.2768. The Pound has been trading more mixed against other currencies. AUDUSD has settled near 0.7150, so far holding below the 15-month high seen yesterday at 0.7183. A sharp drop in Australia’s Q2 business confidence survey had been widely anticipated, as was a downbeat economic update of the Federal government. USDCAD posted a fresh six-week low at 1.3378, with the Canadian Dollar firming concomitantly with oil prices. Front-month USOil lifted back above $42.00, drawing back in on Tuesday’s four-and-a-half-month high at $42.40.

Geopolitics remain a concern, as China blacked out English premier league games on Chinese television, and closed the US consulate in Chengdu in retaliation for the White House closing the Chinese consulate in Houston. President TRUMP said Chinese consulates in other US cities could come under investigation.

FX Update – July 24 – USD remains heavy.



USDJPY, H1

The Yen has outperformed today as risk aversion took a firm grip on global markets. The Dollar has so far failed to pick up safe haven demand, and has remained on a softening path. The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex carved out a fresh 22-month low at 94.49. The Dollar has lost appeal partly on the advent of the EU’s recovery fund, seen as a milestone by many analysts that has served to tip the balance out of the dollar’s favour, and partly amid expectations for dovish guidance from the Fed at next week’s FOMC, with some speculating that the US central bank is considering yield curve targeting. A Reuters survey highlighted increasing pessimism about the nearer-term US outlook given the extent of localized lockdown measures in response to the spike in coronavirus cases across many southern and western states. Intel also underwhelmed markets in its guidance for Q3 earnings.



Against this backdrop, EURUSD remained firm, although off from the 21-month peak that was seen yesterday at 1.1628. USDJPY dropped by 0.5% to a one-month low at 106.17. Yen crosses were concurrently weak, driven by safe haven demand for the Yen. EURJPY fell to a two-day low at 123.36, extending a correction from Wednesday’s seven-week peak at 124.30. AUDJPY has been the biggest mover of the day so far, dropping 0.6% to a three-day low at 75.32. AUDUSD fell by a lesser magnitude, but still managed to peg a three-day low, at 0.7074. USDCAD lifted to within a pip of its peak from yesterday, at 1.3428. Oil prices have remained heavy after yesterday sinking to three-day lows. Cable edged out a fresh six-week high at 1.2773. The pair has been trending higher for about three weeks, though recent daily price action has been jagged and upside momentum has been waning, with the Pound having been weakening against other currencies on signs, and confirmation at a press conference yesterday, that the UK and EU remain deadlocked on key issues in trade talks.



The first reading of July PMIs from the Eurozone and the UK both beat expectations earlier. The Markit Composite EZ number came in at 54.8, significantly above expectations of 51.1 and back in expansion territory over 50.0. The preliminary UK July PMI surveys smashed expectations, with the composite headline surging to a five-year high of 57.1, up from 47.7 in the final reading for June and well up on the median forecast for a 50.8 reading. This extends the strong rebound for a third consecutive month from April’s series-record low at 13.8. The services PMI rose to 56.6 from 47.1 and the manufacturing PMI lifted to 53.6 from 50.1. However, a note of caution accompanied the data, with Markit noting – “July’s PMI represents a step in the right direction, but there is a mountain still to climb before a sustainable recovery is in sight.”

Events to Look Out for This Week.




The growing worries over the spreading coronavirus, the rollback in some reopenings, and possible flattening in growth have set the scene for risk aversion. Adding to the mix is the the increased friction between the US-China. Therefore next week’s inflation and GDP data out of some of the major economies and Fed  monetary policy and press conference could be the highlights in the coming week. Another focus is the upcoming Q2 corporate earnings season, which will get into gear next week with “show and tells” from the FANGs and tech sector in general.
Have a look at the most important events of the coming days in our usual weekly publication.

Monday – 27 July 2020

German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – German IFO business confidence is expected to slip to 85 after the jump seen in June. The current conditions index nudged higher, but less than hoped and the overall improvement is mainly due to a jump in the future expectations reading.

Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to rise 14.0% in June with a 55.7% surge in transportation orders, after a 15.7% headline orders rebound in May that included an 82.0% transportation orders surge. Durable shipments should rise 10.5%, and inventories should rise 0.5%.

Tuesday –  28 July 2020

Consumer confidence (USD, GMT 14:00) – Consumer confidence is expected to bounce to 128.0 in July from 121.5 in June, versus another 16-month low of 121.7 as recently as January and an 18-year high of 137.9 in October. Overall, confidence measures remain historically high.

Wednesday – 29 July 2020

Consumer Price Index (AUD, GMT 01:30) – Australian Q2 CPI is expected to rise to 0.2% after confirmed at 0.3% q/q for Q1 2020.

Interest rate Decision and Conference (USD, GMT 18:00) – The FED is committed to using its full range of tools to support the U.S. economy in this challenging time, thereby promoting its maximum employment and price stability goals. Hence dovish guidance is expected from the Fed at next week’s FOMC, with some speculating that the US central bank is considering yield curve targeting. A Reuters survey highlighted increasing pessimism about the nearer-term US outlook given the extent of localized lockdown measures in response to the spike in coronavirus cases across many southern and western states.

Thursday – 30 July 2020

Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 06:00) – Q1 2020 GDP was confirmed at -2.2% q/q as investment, consumption plunged. Q2 will look even worse as several economic sectors remain impacted by lockdown and new measures. More importantly, the disruptions of supply chains during the height of lockdowns have led many to re-focus on domestic production and Germany’s export oriented production sector that also relies heavily on real time supply chains, may have to rethink its strategy long term.

Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 12:00) – The German HICP inflation is expected to slip back to 0.6% y/y for July after it was  revised up to 0.8% y/y in June.

Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – Gross Domestic Product is expected to show a contraction rate of -32.0%, with weakness across all the GDP components thanks to mandatory closures between mid-March and early-May. The Q2 hits to the economy were particularly large for net exports, and exports in particular, alongside hefty pull-backs in service consumption.

Jobless Claims (USD, GMT 12:30)– US Initial jobless claims rose 109k to 1,416k in the week ended July 18, missing estimates for a 16th straight decline. This uptick follows the -3k slide to 1,307k (was 1,300k) in the July 11 week and the -98k drop to 1,310k over the July 4 week.

Friday – 31 July 2020

Manufacturing PMI (CNY, GMT 01:00) – Final non- and NBS-Manufacturing PMIs are expected to decline in July, to 51.2 from 54.4 and 48.6 from 50.9 respectively.

Retail Sales (EUR, GMT 06:00) – 11% June retail sales gains are expected for Germany, following 13.9% May gains. April revised to -6.5% m/m.

Consumer Price Index & Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 09:00) –The Eurozone Inflation was confirmed at 0.3% y/y in the final June reading, in line with the preliminary number and up from 0.1% y/y in the previous month. Core inflation fell back to 0.8% y/y as food price inflation decelerated, although at 3.2% y/y it remains high, largely thanks to the knock on effects of lockdown measures. The preliminary CPI for July is expected to come at 0.4% y/y, with the core inflation at 0.9% y/y. Preliminary Gross Domestic Product is expected to slow further to -4.7% in Q2, after Q1 GDP revised up to -3.6% q/q from -3.8% q/q reported initially.

eBay Earning Preview – Will it Benefit from Social Distancing?



eBay (MT4 Symbol: EBAY) is set to report its second quarter 2020 earnings after the market closes on 28th July 2020 (Tuesday). It is attracting significant interest from investors as they will get an early look at the performance of the e-commerce company during the global lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic. eBay will be the first among the major US e-commerce companies to report its earnings as Shopify will report its earnings on 29th July followed by Amazon on 30th July.

This week’s announcement also will be eBay’s first quarterly report under new CEO Jamie Iannone, who joined the company at the end of April. This quarterly report will be expected to leave a good impression as in early June, eBay raised its 2nd quarter (Q2) outlook as the company results exceeded expectations during Covid-19. They expect the Q2 revenue to increase in the range of $2.75 billion to $2.8 billion (April guidance: 2.38 billion – $2.48 billion) and adjusted earning per share in the range of $1.02-$1.06.

eBay will report its second quarter earnings on after US trading day closes later today (July 28). The e-commerce giant is expected to report earnings per share of $1.06, up from $0.68 in the prior year quarter. Revenue is projected at $2.80 billion with the growth estimate for the current quarter at 4.10%. Most analysts expect that eBay’s upcoming earnings report will beat the forecast.

Technical Analysis

eBay’s share price has been on fire in 2020. eBay stock currently trades at $57, after climbing ~57% in 2020. BMO Capital lifted the target price of eBay stock to $59, while Wedbush and Keybanc hiked eBay’s target price to $65.

From the technical perspective, the trend is currently bullish. The price is positioned higher than both the 50 Day Moving Average and the 200 Day Moving Average. The share currently trades at $57.21, slightly lower than the 2020 high of $61.13 which also act as a strong resistance. The subsequent resistance is at $66.71 (2015 high). The immediate support for the share is at $54.03 and followed by support at the 50 Daily MA ($50.61).

The share price is on course for its best performing year. The 14-day RSI indicator has retraced from overbought region and currently shows momentum to the upside.

FX Update – July 29 – USD got a break but not for long.



USDJPY, H1

The Dollar relief rally yesterday and dip today is consolidating the sharp declines seen over the prior 10 days. The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex has posted new 25-month lows at 93.31 today, breaking below Monday’s 93.40 low. EURUSD is showing gains too, though below the 22-month high seen on Monday at 1.1780. Cable has moved higher to test R1 at 1.2975, and above the five-month high seen Tuesday at 1.2951. AUDUSD whittled out a fresh 15-month peak at 0.7192, 8 pips shy of the key 0.7200 which was last seen on April 14. USDCAD trades at the 1.3360 mark, above Tuesday’s seven-week low at 1.3329. USDJPY remains heavy, and broke below yesterday’s near five-month low at 104.93, to register a new low at 104.80 before finding support. The Japanese currency is registering as the biggest gainer on the week so far, gaining most against the US Dollar and New Zealand Dollar, with just over a 2% advance versus both underperformers. The sputtering price action in global equity markets has driven safe haven demand into the Yen, with the Dollar evidently perceived to be no longer providing protection.



Profit taking and position trimming has been a theme across markets over the last day into the Fed’s policy announcement and the final week of political wrangling over the next US fiscal package (there is a degree of uncertainty about the outcomes of both, or at least in terms of signalling with regard to the Fed). Corporate earnings and concerns about the impact of new localized lockdown measures due to spikes in coronavirus infections have also been in the mix.



Regarding the Fed, no policy changes are expected and a dovish stance is expected, though Forex markets will be laser focused on whether there is a signal that it will tolerate higher inflation, as this could weigh on real yields, and thereby the Dollar, further. Additional comments surrounding the purchase of longer-dated debt and the sticky and tricky issue of yield caps will be in the spotlight. The statement is due at 18:00 GMT with Chair Powell’s Press Conference 30 minutes later.

US GDP & Claims data.



[bEURUSD, H1[/b]

The US advance GDP report beat estimates with a -32.9% Q2 contraction rate that was a modestly smaller drop than feared, though it still constituted a record drop, following annual revisions that raised the real and nominal GDP levels as of Q1, but left the chain price index the same. For revisions, the -5.0% Q1 real GDP figure was left unrevised, though the prior two quarterly gains were raised to 2.4% (was 2.1%) in Q4 and 2.6% (was 2.1%) in Q3, hence leaving a stronger trajectory into Q2. There were plenty of Q2 component surprises, with the big upside surprise coming from a much weaker than assumed real import figure, where we saw a -53.4% decline (import drops add to GDP), alongside an expected -64.1% export drop. We also saw a surprising 2.7% rise for real government purchases, instead of the widely assumed drop. The Q2 inventory figures posted the expected huge liquidation, with a -$234.6 bln inventory subtraction that left a record-large liquidation rate of -$315.5 bln. We saw more modest downside Q2 surprises for the investment figures, with a -27.0% contraction rate for business fixed investment and a -38.7% for residential investment. Consumption fell -34.6% in Q2, which was a tad weaker than we assumed but was in line with market estimates. Today’s GDP and claims data prompted tentative bumps to GDP forecasts to 28.0% (was 31%) in Q3 and 9.0% (was 7.5%) in Q4, and a trimming of the July non-farm payroll estimate to 2.6 million from 3.3 million.

The Dollar was unchanged following the data, where Q2 GDP fell a historic 32.9% and jobless claims rose another 1.434 mln versus the 1.422 previously. EURUSD sits near 1.1790, having spiked over 1.1800, and the USDJPY is steady at 105.15.

Sterling Storms On.



GBPUSD, H1

Cable has pinned a new five-month peak at 1.3145. The pair is now firmly back in pre-lockdown territory. The UK currency still registers as the weakest of the main currencies on the year-to-date, and by some distance in trade-weighted terms, while recent dollar underperformance has been somewhat flattering the Pound. Nevertheless, there are some convincing bullish arguments in market narratives. One is the pick-up in the pace of economic recovery in the UK, as evidenced by the much stronger than forecast preliminary July PMI data and improvement in the CBI’s July distributive sales report, which flagged a near full recovery in the retail sector, with sales in upcoming months seen at near seasonal norms. There have also been signs that have led markets to factor in improved odds for an EU-UK trade deal, with a number of sourced press reports suggesting that discussions are going better than the official line suggests. However, the Government’s handling of the pandemic has been coming under daily scrutiny and last night’s sudden announcement of restrictions and lock-downs in parts of northern England only added to the uncertainty.



Technically, Cable breached the key 20-day simple moving average on July 7 and has rallied significantly over the last 11 trading days, posting consecutive gains each day. The next Donchian Channel top is 1.3200 and then 1.3500. The 200-day moving average sits way below at 1.2688 and the RSI has breached into the 80s this week into overbought territory.

FX Update – August 6 – USD to new lows.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

The USDIndex edged out a fresh 27-month low at 92.50, continuing what is a fourth consecutive week of decline and a fourth straight month of decline, dropping by just over 10% from the early March peak. The loss of confidence in the US currency has partly been reflected in the ongoing rally in gold, which has remained buoyant after posting a fresh record nominal high at $2,055.00 yesterday.

A deal on the US fiscal package remains elusive, though President Trump’s threat to take executive action to cut payroll taxes managed to keep investor spirits up, along with the above-forecast services ISM out of the US, and more positive news from the candidate vaccine front for the SARS Cov-2 coronavirus. The good vibe across equity markets flagged somewhat as the Asia session wore on, however. The MSCI Asia-Pacific equity index printed a six-and-a-half-month-high during early trading before turning lower to near net unchanged levels. S&P 500 futures, while off highs, still show moderate gains, while the European markets have opened lower to start the day.

AUDUSD saw a downward flurry after the Australian government lifted its unemployment forecast while forecasting growth would be trimmed by 2.5 percentage points as a consequence of its own lockdown measures (having chosen the sledgehammer approach, similar to many other nations, despite the standout success of the much less costly Swedish approach, which has refrained from lockdown and masks and has performed near the same as most other European countries during the pandemic, with its ICU and mortality numbers having now dropped to near nothing). AUDUSD dipped to a 0.7184 low, which is nearly 60 pips below yesterday’s peak.

Elsewhere, EURUSD edged out a new 27-month high at 1.1917, and Cable a five-month peak at 1.3182. USDJPY idled in the mid 105.00s, above yesterday’s six-day low at 105.32. USDCAD settled above the six-month low seen yesterday at 1.3231. Front-month USOIL crude futures settled in the lower $42.00s, below Wednesday’s five-month peak at $43.52.

FX Update – Ahead of NFP, USD finds a bid.



The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex (DXY) posted a two-day high at 93.16, extending the rebound from the 27-month low seen yesterday at 92.53. EURUSD concurrently retreated to a 1.1819 low, which is a pip shy of yesterday’s low and 2 pips shy of making it a big figure correction from yesterday’s 27-month peak. Cable posted a two-day low at 1.3098, drawing back from the 1.3187 five-month peak seen Thursday following the warily upbeat BoE outlook. USDJPY continued to ply a narrow range (less than 15 pips) around the 105.50 mark. Both the Aussie and Kiwi Dollars corrected moderately as the US currency firmed. AUDUSD, after first edging out a high at 0.7243, which matches Wednesday’s 18-month peak, ebbed to a low at 0.7196. USDCAD lifted to a three-day high at 1.3372.

Front-month USOil futures were soft for a second day, maintaining sub-$42.00 levels after posting a five-month high earlier in the week at $42.52. Gold prices corrected below $2,050.00 after printing a fresh nominal record high at $2,077.85. The ascent of gold has been a reflection of investor concerns over the risk of there being an eventual pop in inflation as a consequence of massive global fiscal stimulus efforts and massive global monetary uber-accommodation, although there has been scant sign of this happening thus far, with disinflation remaining in force and with much of the US yield curve and other sovereign benchmark yields either at or near record lows. In the mix is speculation that the Fed, and possibly other major central banks, may be amid a strategic shift to allow higher inflation.

The US Department of Labor’s weekly initial jobless claims will be THE key data release from the US later today, while labor market reports from Canada and the United States will be closely watched by market participants. The median forecast of economists polled by Reuters is for the Non-Farm Payroll to rise by 1,600,000, following the big miss in ADP number of 167,000 on Wednesday and the better than expected Weekly Claims yesterday of 1,186,000 compared to expectations of 1,400,000. The range in the Reuters poll estimates varies from -280,000 to 3,500,000. On the other hand, Canada is expected to add 400,000 jobs with the Unemployment Rate slumping lower to 11% from 12.3%.

Events to Look Out for This Week.




As the month of August began,uncertainties both fresh and familiar keep challenging the markets, driving volatility in the stock market and pushing bond rates to record lows. The worries over the second wave of the viral pandemic, US-China frictions, the government’s inability to pass a new US stimulus bill and the whatever-it-takes policy commitments from the core central banks all expected to hold in the week ahead as well.
Have a look at the most important events of the coming days in our usual weekly publication.

Monday – 10 August 2020

Consumer Price Index (CNY, GMT 01:30) – The July Chinese CPI is expected to have improved on a monthly basis, with higher outcome at 0.2% m/m from -0.1% m/m

Tuesday – 11 August 2020

Average Earnings (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Average Earnings excluding bonus are expected to have grown by 0.4% in June from 0.7%. The ILO unemployment rate is expected to be unchanged at 3.9%.

Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – German August ZEW economic sentiment is seen to have inclined at 62.4 compared to 59.3 in July.

Producer Price Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – The headline CPI for PPI in July is expected with a 0.4% gain with a 0.1% core price increase. As expected readings would result in a rise for the y/y headline PPI metric to -0.7% from -0.8% in June. The y/y core reading is assumed to remain in the 0.2%-0.5% area over the near future, with the downward hit from reduced aggregate demand proving greater than the boost for prices from supply disruptions, though supply constraints for some sectors should prove increasingly important as we pass through Q3.

Wednesday – 12 August 2020

Interest Rate Decision & Policy Report (NZD, GMT 02:00)  – The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) is widely expected to keep the OCR (Official Cash Rate) at the current record low 0.25%. The OCR is the means by which the RBNZ manages a dovish  monetary policy for the New Zealand economy, by lending overnight cash at 25 basis points above the OCR, and receiving deposits and paying interest at 25 basis points below the OCR. The bank expected to expand QE, when the Bank’s bimonthly monetary policy statement and press conference are also scheduled, since last time it stressed a willingness to take further stimulus measures if necessary while noting persisting downside risks to the economy, adding that currency strength remains a negative for NZ exporters.

Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 06:00) – GDP is the economy’s most important figure. The preliminary Q2 GDP is expected to slightly improved at -1.8% q/q however it remains contracted in a quarterly and yearly basis.

Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – The headline CPI for July is expected at a 0.3% July and with a 0.1% core price rate, following June figures of 0.6% for the headline and 0.2% for the core. The headline will be boosted by an estimated 5% July increase for CPI gasoline prices. As-expected July figures would result in a headline y/y increase of 0.7%, up from 0.6% in June.

Thursday – 13 August 2020

Employment Data (AUD, GMT 01:30) – Both the unemployment rate and the employment change are expected to have grown in July, at 7.8% m/m and 394.2K respectively.

Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The German HICP inflation for July is anticipated flat.

Friday – 14 August 2020

Retail Sales (CNY, GMT 02:00) – Following the -1.8% m/m contraction in China retail sales in June, they are expected to rise slightly by 0.3% in July.

Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The preliminary Q2 GDP s.a. is expected to remain contracted at -15.0%y/y and -12.1% q/, with national GDP rates varying pretty much along the lines of virus developments and depending and the extend of lockdown measures.  The key question for the future is  when the initial rebound will be, but if that can be sustained and broadened into a lasting recovery even when governments and ECB start to reign in their very generous support. The agreement on an EU wide stimulus package has helped to bolster confidence in the project, but it remains to be seen whether the package really is sufficient to strengthen long term growth in the Eurozone.

Retail Sales (USD, GMT 12:30) – July increases of 1.0% for headline retail sales is expected and 0.8% for the ex-auto figure, following June increases of 7.5% for the headline and 7.3% ex-autos. We expect a 5% increase for the CPI gasoline index, and rising sales volume as well should allow a 5% service station sales rebound as well.  Real consumer spending is expected to contract at a rate of -33.2% in Q2 before an assumed 33% bounce in Q3.

Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – The August preliminary Michigan sentiment reading is forecast at 79.0, from 72.5 in the final July reading.
