Market Update – August 12.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USDIndex lifted to 105 after dropping to a low of 104.50 after the early data, but is still heading for a weekly loss amid trimmed back expectations for the Fed’s tightening path. US Yields down, but the curve inverted further as the short end underperformed, Yields in Australia and to a lesser extent New Zealand backed up today. US Stocks closed mixed, while in Asia, Stocks in Japan rallied in catch up trade on their return from yesterday’s holiday, but elsewhere the picture looked patchy overnight. The ASX lost -0.5% and Hang Seng and CSI 300 are up 0.37% and down -0.06% respectively, after a narrowly mixed close on Wall Street. European and US futures are posting modest gains though. Oil pushed up to the $94 handle after the IEA upgraded its demand outlook yesterday, Gold sank to $1790 and BTC steady.

Fed’s Daly told Bloomberg yesterday that there is an improvement in inflation numbers, but repeated that its too early to declare victory over inflation, repeating that her base case is for a half-percentage point hike at the next meeting.

UK GDP contracted -0.1% q/q in the second quarter of the year, in line with our forecast and a tad less bleak than Bloomberg consensus, which predicted a contraction of -0.2% q/q. The -0.6% m/m decline in the monthly GDP number for June was sobering though and backed the BoE’s bleak outlook for the economy, which seems to be heading for a recession amid the cost of living crisis, the fallout from Brexit and political turmoil in Westminster.

* USDIndex dropped to a low of 104.50 after the early data, but bounced to 105.18 by the close 4%.
* Equities – USA100 off -0.58%, additionally hurt by the run up in rates. The USA500 was -0.07% lower, and the USA30 was 0.08% firmer.
* Yields 10-year rate closed 12 bps higher at 2.89%. The 30-year cheapened 14 bps to 3.165%. The 2-year was up 2 bps to 3.235%. The curve was less inverted at -35 bps versus -44 bps Wednesday.
* Oil – $93.90, Brent at $99.22 per barrel, after the IEA upgraded its demand outlook yesterday.
* Gold –has been capped and it saw a low of $1783.67, before backing up to now $1790.87, as Treasury yields nudged lower.
Bitcoin struggling to break 25K resistance.
* FX Markets – EURUSD down to 1.0300, USDJPY steady at 133.35 and Cable holds at 1.2170 floor.

Today – US Michigan Index.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) NZDJPY (+0.70%) back to July’s highs at 86.00. MAs aligning higher, MACD lines extending higher, RSI 72.80 & rising, H1 ATR 0.167, Daily ATR 0.976. Key Resistance at 86.56.

Daily Market update: 29 August 2022.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Dollar on the front foot on the back of hawkish Jackson Hole comments by FED chair Powell.

Dollar Index

The dollar index ended Friday’s trading session with some exuberance, closing at the 108.73 level following a sustained hawkish tone from FED chair Powell at the Jackson Hole Symposium. His message was consistent with the narrative that the FED isn’t quite done yet fighting off inflation and a possible recession. Which essentially means Americans are going to have to brace for more interest rate hikes and consequently slower growth in the economy and a weaker job market.



Technical Analysis:

In terms of market structure, last week saw the completion of the larger bullish continuation pattern (falling wedge) that found support from the 104.00 level and produced an impulsive wave that went on to revisit the 109.00 area last week. Considering current price action and how it is approaching the 20-year highs in the form of a smaller bullish continuation pattern (descending channel), it’s an increasing probability that price could continue beyond the 109.00 key level henceforth.

Stocks

On the back of the dollar strength, there was a selloff in US Stocks, with a 3% decline on the prospect of the FED remaining firm on a sustained period of further rate hikes.

*Dow: Reacted to the statements by plunging 3% (just over 1000 points) on the day.
*S&P 500: Reacted to the statements and fell by 3.4%.
*Nasdaq: Being heavily linked to the technology sector, the Nasdaq is particularly more sensitive to interest rate hikes and reacted by falling 3.9%.

Currencies

*Euro: EURUSD slipped back to below parity levels, closing the day at 0.99654.
*Pound: GBPUSD closed the day retesting the weekly low at 1.17391 after hitting a session high at 1.1900.

Commodities

*Gold: Remained pressured by Powell’s comments despite a momentary bounce earlier in the week, ending Friday’s session at the $1 738 mark.

*Oil: The black gold remained resilient last week, closing the week buoyed by verbal intervention from the Saudis concerning the possibility of cutting oil production. This potentially lends credence to the idea that the Saudis are unable to tolerate a price below $90 a barrel at the present moment.

Bitcoin

The leading cryptocurrency broke through the psychological $20 000 mark as bears largely drove the market last week, seeing a 20% decline in a week from a high of $25 211.

An interesting sidenote going into September is that Bitcoin has produced a bearish market environment in price for each of the past four months in the year. It’ll be interesting to see how it performs going into the new month and the last part of the year.

Today – Speeches from ECB’s Lane, Fed Vice Chair Brainard.

Economic Calendar



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) NASDAQ (-3.9%). Dropped to 12387$ from 13206$.

Daily Market update: 30 August 2022.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Dollar pulls back off fresh 20-year highs as market prices in a more hawkish ECB.

Dollar Index

Monday’s London session proved to be a battleground won by the Dollar as it added to Friday’s gains, hitting levels last traded in September 2002. A Key driver in this exuberance is the ever-increasing probability of a 75-basis point rate hike as opposed to a 50-basis point rate hike at the next FED meeting in September. This in turn has caused yields to rise, with the 2-year yield hitting fresh 5-year highs near 3.5% and ultimately gave the dollar its appeal to continue its upward trajectory.



Technical Analysis: H4

In terms of market structure, last week saw the completion of the larger bullish continuation pattern in the form of the falling wedge type structure that found support from the 104.00 level and produced an impulsive wave that went on to revisit the 109.00 area last week Friday before setting a new high just under 109.50.

Intra-day Overview: Current price action in Monday’s trading session broke through the previous high and created fresh 20-year highs before retreating into the range finding support within the 108.00 range. Henceforth buyers could push the index to continue its bull run, or on the flipside, sellers could be well positioned at the fresh 20-year highs set in Monday morning’s London session and could challenge buy pressure.

Stocks
At the time of writing, US Stocks have continued to sell off since Friday’s hawkish comments signalled a longer period of sustained higher interest rates.

*Dow Jones: Reacted by adding to the losses from last week by 0.07%.
*S&P 500: Pressure continued and added to losses from last week by 0.11%.
*Nasdaq: Was down on Monday by 0.49%.

Currencies

*Euro: Intraday overview: Price was buoyed by a pullback in the Dollar on Monday morning, which gave the Euro some impetus to claw back some of the losses made on Friday, retesting the upper end of the range at the 1.00291 area in the current bearish continuation structure.
*Pound: Intraday overview: The 1.16481 area was the floor that supported a pullback on Monday morning, as the Pound clawed back some of the losses from Friday. The Intraday high was set around the 1.17432 area.

Commodities

*Gold: Intraday overview: The $1 720 area was the floor that supported a pullback on Monday morning, helping Gold claw back some of the losses seen on Friday. The intraday high was set around $1 745.

*Oil: On the back of the Saudis’ comments around their inclination towards slowing down production, the price of Brent hit $100 and shows the possibility of geopolitical factors supporting the bullish momentum for now, while the current economic outlook, and central banks’ monetary policies, are supporting a bearish sentiment.

Bitcoin

In the wake of Bitcoin falling below the psychological $20 000 level, there could be more support around the corner as crypto adoption seems to be getting “a shot in the arm” with the Monetary Authority of Singapore considering implementing certain regulations around leverage when it comes to cryptocurrencies. This initiative is aimed to protect inexperienced consumers as opposed to banning the crypto market altogether.

Today - Attention will be on the BOC’s rate decision and BOE Monetary Policy Report Hearings along with BOE Governor Bailey testimony. Of importance will be remarks from VC Brainard, Michael Barr who will discuss financial systems.

*EUR – Trades at 0.9980 now from a test of 0.9950 yesterday, 1.0000 resistance.

Market Update – September 16 – Dollar & Yields firmer, Stocks Gold & Oil weaker.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*USDIndex – Remains bid and back to test 109.60. Data released yesterday was mixed (positive Retail Sales and Claims, mixed Trade data and Manufacturing from Empire State & Philly Fed) but solid enough not to dissuade the Fed. A 75 bp boost is a done deal on Wednesday, with the risk for a 100 bp hike now 24%. And the Fed is likely to increase rates over the rest of the year to hit a 4.04% upper band in December and peak at 4.4% early 2023. In January the 10-yr yield was 1.77%, closed yesterday at 3.459%, just shy of June’s 3.47% high.
*EUR – Trades at 0.9978 now and remains capped by Parity 1.0000 resistance.
*JPY – More intervention chatter, Suzuki: concerned about one-sided yen weakening. USDJPY back to 143.60, 145.00 remains vital resistance.
*GBP broke below key 1.1500 support zone, 1.1420 now, as Retail Sales disappoint adding to the cost of living crisis.
*Stocks US stocks moved lower and remain pressured after Tuesdays bloodbath.(S&P500 -1.13% -44.66pts 3901) FUTS trade below key 3900 at 3892. Adobe -17%, MFST -2.70%, NFLX +5.02%. NASDAQ worst performer (-1.43%). Asian stock markets also sank (Nikkei -1.11% & Shanghai Comp. -1.97%) – Chinese property sector remains weak but strong Retails Sales and key August indicators were better-than-expected. European FUTS lower, FTSE100 FUTS – a tad higher on weaker sterling.



*USOil plunged over 4% to $84.35 lows, from a test of $90.00 on Wednesday. Trades at $85.40 now.
*Gold – also plunged below key support areas at $1688 and $1680, to $1658 (April 2020 lows) now.
*BTC – slumped to $19.4k and trades at $19.7k now. Ethereum PARIS Merge successful yesterday but he coin lost -5% and trades at $1468 today.

Overnight & Today – EU Final CPI, UoM Consumer Sentiment & Inflation Expectations, Quadruple Witching, Speeches from ECB’s Lagarde & Villeroy.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) GBPUSD (-0.46%) Weak UK Retail Sales adds to Sterling’s woes. Sank under vital 1.1500 yesterday to 1.1418 now. MAs aligning lower, MACD histogram & signal line negative & falling, RSI 27.50 & OS, H1 ATR 0.00158, Daily ATR 0.01188.

Market Update – September 19 – Big central bank week; Risk of a super-sized hikes!


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*USDIndex – Remains bid, holding above 109. The surprisingly hot August CPI report generated a sea-change in policy outlook, while housing starts and existing home sales will be tracked. The housing sector has been a major casualty of the FOMC’s tightening policies. Starts are seen rebounding slightly to a 1.450 mln clip after tumbling -9.6% to 1.446 mln in July. Existing home sales are projected dropping to a 4.685 mln rate following July’s decline to 4.810 mln. A 75 bp boost is a done deal on Wednesday.
*EUR – Trades at 0.9976. Recession risks are increasingly palpable in Europe.
*JPY – down 0.2% at 143.21 – verbal interventions effect in the yen has faded this week.Strong resistance at 145. Japan is on holiday today & Friday. BoJ is expected to maintain the accommodative stance & stick with massive stimulus .
*GBP just under the 1.14 mark. Markets are split on whether the BOE will raise rates by 50 or 75 bps on Thursday and to the government’s fiscal plans as Chancellor Kwarteng is set to unveil a “mini-budget” on September 23. The energy package aside, Kwarteng is expected to unveil cuts to National Insurance payments and the reversal of plans to increase corporation tax from 19% to 25%in April. PM Truss is also preparing a post-Brexit deregulation push and hopes that her measures will boost growth sufficiently to allow the financing of measures in the medium term.
*Stocks in red with ASX and Nikkei lost -0.3% and -1.1% respectively, while Hang Seng and CSI 300 are down -1.3% and -0.5% at the moment. Reports that the Chinese city of Chengdu reopened after lifting a two-week lockdown and a liquidity injection from the PBOC may have helped to put a floor under mainland China bourses at least. The GER40 future is fractionally lower, US futures underperforming, led by a –0.8% correction in the USA100. UK markets will remain closed today for the late Queen’s funeral.
*USOil – at $83.83 next support at $80.
*Gold – slipped on Monday, at $1661 pressured by a strong USD.
*BTC – retests 3-month low at mid $18500 area.



Overnight & Today - EU Construction Output & Japanese CPI.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) BTCUSD (-4.72%) Sank to 3-month low at 18400 area. MAs aligning lower, MACD histogram & signal line negative & falling, RSI 21, H1 ATR 231.98, Daily ATR 1112.90.

Market Update – September 20.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*USDIndex – steadied at 109 – 109.30, as Treasuries were weaker on the day and closed near their lows as the market awaits an all-but-done 75 bp rate boost. The 2-year US Treasury yield , which is extremely sensitive to policy expectations, rose as high as 3.970% overnight for the first time since November 2007. The 10-year yield reached a high of 3.518%, a level not seen since April 2011.
*EUR – back to parity (1.0030) after it dropped as low as $0.9864 on Sept. 6 for the first time in two decades.
*JPY – at 143.40, in a week following consolidation. The BoJ decides policy on Thursday, and is widely expected to keep its ultra-easy stimulus settings unchanged — including pinning the 10-year yield near zero — to support a fragile economic recovery.
*GBP – at 1.1445, finding some ground after the 37-year low. Consensus expectations predict a 50 bp move from the BoE, although a 75 bp move is likely to be discussed.
*Stocks: A late-day rally left the US100 up 0.76% at 11,535, while the US30 and US500 rose 0.64% and 0.69%, respectively, to 31,019 and 3899. Nikkei was up 0.45% at the close, the ASX managed a 1.29% gain, while CSI and Hang Seng are currently up 0.2% and 1.1% respectively. GER40 and UK100 futures are up 0.3% and 0.6% respectively.
*Apple rallied by 2.51% yesterday. The company announced yesterday that prices of apps and in-app purchases on its App Store will increase in several countries including Japan, Malaysia and all territories that use the euro currency, from next month. Also in a statement to Bloomberg, Apple has acknowledged the iPhone 14 Pro’s camera shaking issue and has revealed that it will release a software update to fix this. This update should be out by next week.
*USOil – at $85 area after dipping to $82. US crude oil stocks are estimated to have risen last week by around 2 million barrels in the week to Sept. 16, a preliminary Reuters poll showed on Monday. European gas prices meanwhile continue to decline with Dutch TTF at EUR 170 per megawatt hour – the lowest since July 25. European governments are intensifying efforts to ease the reliance on Russian imports and there are also efforts underway to reform the energy market as governments move to reduce energy consumption in preparation for the winter. European inventories are almost 86% full, but if Russia doesn’t resume gas deliveries via Nordstream 1 it will still be a struggle to avoid power cuts.

Overnight & Today - US Building Permits & housing Starts, Canadian Inflation and the highlight is the ECB Lagarde speech, BoC Deputy Beaudry speech and RBA Assist Gov Bullock Speech.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) GBPJPY (+0.42%) rallies to 164.35 (200-hour SMA). MAs aligning higher, MACD histogram & signal line turned positive and rising. RSI 69, H1 ATR 0.225, Daily ATR 1.557.

Market Update – September 21 – Riksbank spooked markets ahead of Fed, BoE, SNB & Norges Bank.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*USDIndex – extended gains to 110.26, stocks and bonds were down while the 10-year yield surged over 10 bps to hit 3.60%, but slid to finish at 3.555%. It is the first close over 3.5% since April 2011. The curve steepened to -39 bps from -45 bp.
*ECB’s Lagarde expects to raise rates further over the “next several meetings,” in her speech on Monetary Policy in the Euro Area. That and the surprisingly bold 100 bp rate boost from Sweden’s Riksbank kicked off a very heavy week of central bank decisions and got trading off on the back foot. The markets are repricing for the possibility other central banks will be in more of a rush to tighten policy.
*Putin declares partial military mobilisation to bolster Ukraine war effort.
*EUR – plummets below 0.9900.
*JPY – topped 144.00, before drifting by 60 pips on the EU open as Yen strengthened. The BoJ left its bond buying schedule unchanged and signalled ongoing focus on trying to cap yields which may have helped to soothen nerves.
*GBP – dipped to 1.1338, at 37-year lows.
*Stocks: US500 and the US30 were down just over -1%, with the US100 off -0.95%. European rates closed up over 10 bps, and bourses dropped over -1%. JPN225 and ASX closed with losses of -1.6% and -1.4% respectively yesterday, and Hang Seng and CSI 300 are currently down -1.2% and -0.3%. US and European equity futures are also in the red.
USOil – ticked up to $85.50.

Overnight – BoJ maintains bond buying program, with the focus on trying to keep a lid on yields, ahead of the policy decision later in the week. The BoJ plans to buy 150 billion yen of debt in the 5-10 year and 100 billion yen of securities with maturities of 10-25 years. That is on top of the offer of unlimited purchases of 10-year bonds at 0.25%. The 10-year rate climbed to the 0.25% upper limit of the BoJ’s tolerated range last week for the first time in three months, as officials tried to talk up the Yen.

Today – The FOMC began its 2-day meeting.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) EURJPY (-0.80%) dipped to 142.00. MAs aligning lower, MACD histogram & signal line turned negative and falling. RSI 69, H1 ATR 0.271, Daily ATR 1.56.

Market Update – September 22.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*USDIndex – extended gains to 111.51, as the FOMC boosted rates by 75 bps, but it was a much more hawkish result than that. The SEP revisions were the focus and they did not disappoint, with the dots coming in much higher than expected, steepening the near-term trajectory and concluding with a higher than previously forecast terminal rate. Chair Powell also stated the policy path the Fed actually takes will be enough to get the job done.
*Yields: 2-year finally climbed through 4% to close at 4.03%, the first time with that handle since October 2007. The 10-year was 5 bps richer at 3.510% after surging to 3.624% just after the Fed’s release.
*EUR – lingering at 0.9820.
*JPY – lifted to 145.44, as Kuroda’s warning on the Yen may help to limit the move higher as it leaves markets speculating about direct intervention in forex markets, although most expect Japan to try and enlist support from the US and shy away from going it alone.
*GBP – dipped to 1.1220.
*Stocks in the red with losses of -1.79% on the US100, and -1.7% on the US30 and US500. GER40 and UK100 futures meanwhile are down -1.6% and -0.8% respectively.
*USOil – at $83.00, as supply concerns are counterbalanced by speculation that aggressive central bank action will hit the recovery.

Overnight – BoJ will continue with the easy policy settings until the 2% inflation goal is met, adding that the bank won’t hesitate to ease policy settings further if needed. FOMC boosted the rate band 75 bps as expected, from 3.0% to 3.50%. This makes a total of 300 bps in rate increases to the highest since 2008. And more hikes are on the way as the policy statement reiterated that the Committee “anticipates that ongoing increases in the target range will be appropriate.” Additionally, the dot plot showed a median funds rate at 4.4% for the end of 2022, or about 125 bps of hikes from here, keeping another 75 bp increase on the table. The median rate is at 4.6% for the end of 2023. The vote was unanimous. This is a hawkish 75 bp hike, and it’s a higher for longer stance through 2023.

Today – The SNB delivers 75 bp hike as expected. Hence focus turns to BOE announcement and US jobless claims.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) CHFJPY (+1.03%) MAs aligning higher, MACD histogram & signal line turned positive and rising. RSI 78, H1 ATR 0.471, Daily ATR 1.599.

Market Update – September 23.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*USDIndex – holds above 111.
*Yields: 10-year surged 18 bps to hit 3.71% but finished at 3.69%. 2-year was 9 bps higher at 4.15% before easing off. It was an 11th straight session of losses, the longest on record (data going back to 1976), according to Bloomberg. The 10-year has sagged for 13 consecutive days. The curve inverted to -54 bps early on before rising to -42 bps late in the day.
*EUR – broke below 0.9800.
*JPY – remained supported after officials stepped in and intervened on forex markets yesterday. USDJPY is at 142.20.
*GBP – remains in the doldrums with Cable at 1.1200.
*Stocks were mired in the red, at 2 year lows, with weakness in consumer discretionary and financials. Some bargain hunting lifted the indexes off of their lows and saw the US30 edge fractionally higher temporarily, but dropped at the close to finish down -0.35%. The US100 lost -1.37%, and the US500 was off -0.85%.
*USOil – hovering at 80-82 area.

Overnight – Globally hot inflation rates have resulted in historically tough action from nearly every central bank around the world this week and over the month. Over the past 24 hours there has been a total of 250 bps in rate increases. Many emerging market central banks have been in action too, forced to keep pace with the Fed and to defend their currencies. South Africa lifted rates 75 bps, with Indonesia and the Philippines hiking 50 bps. The BoJ remained the odd man out, though it intervened in the currency market to support JPY. While the FOMC’s 75 bp hike was expected, the upward revisions in the dots to a 4.6% estimate for the terminal rate, and Chair Powell’s hawkish stance, caused much of the repricing in the markets. Additionally, Powell’s warning that there will be further pain in the housing market and that the risks for recession were on the rise exacerbated investor angst. That and the rise in yields knocked mega-tech sharply lower. Nevertheless, many doubt the FOMC will carry through with its projected policy path, while some found buying opportunities amid the downdraft in stocks.

Today – Preliminary PMIs from UK, Germany, EU, and US alongside Canadian Retail Sales and Fed’s Chair Powell.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) GBPUSD (-0.63%) MAs aligning lower, MACD histogram & signal lines extend well below 0, RSI 30.62, H1 ATR 0.00175, Daily ATR 0.01282.

Market Update – September 26 – Sterling Slumps.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*USDIndex – surged to 114.40 before settling at 113.64. 10-year yields jumped 5.5 bp in Australia and are currently 7.6 bp higher in the US. 2-year Treasury yields broke above 4.3% to a new 15-year high.
*EUR – The Eurozone and the wider EU are also facing the challenge of a new right-wing government in Italy, with Draghi’s likely successor not only the first woman, but one with far-right convictions that could bring her in conflict with Brussels and Frankfurt. EURUSD at 0.9635.
*JPY Japan’s Finance Minister threatened further intervention today, but the Yen was again under pressure and fell about 0.6% to the weaker side of 143.86.
*GBP dropped to an all-time low against the USD (at 1.033) as Friday’s mini-budget intensified concern about the fiscal situation. Speculation of an emergency response from the Bank of England, as confidence evaporated in Britain’s plan to borrow its way out of trouble, spooked investors piling into US Dollars. Currently settled at 1.0615.



*Stocks: Eurozone stock futures are selling off in tandem with US futures, while the UK100 future has found a footing as the slump in Sterling lends a helping hand. Across Asia the Nikkei closed -2.6% lower, the ASX declined -1.6% and Hang Seng and CSI 300 have lost -0.02% and -0.52% respectively so far.
*USOil plunged to $77.58 as recession concerns mount. Attention turns to OPEC+, on Oct. 5, after agreement to cut output modestly at their last meeting.
*Gold – drifted to $1636, with next floor at $1560.
*BTC – hovering around 2-month low at $18k area.



Overnight & Today – China steps up fight to support the Yuan. The PBOC announced today that it will impose a 20% risk reserve requirement on banks’ foreign-exchange forward sales to clients. The currency is heading for the lower end of the allowed trading band against the Dollar, despite stronger than expected fixings since August. Officials also reduced the banks’ foreign-currency reserve requirements earlier this month to boost the Yuan, but so far, the measures haven’t really halted the slide in the currency and today’s move is also not expected to do much more than slow the slide.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) EURGBP (+2.19%). Topped at nearly 2-year highs at 0.9250, before correcting back to 0.9045. Intraday MAs aligning lower, MACD histogram & signal line hold positive, RSI declines to 61, H1 ATR 0.0065, Daily ATR 0.0094.
