Market Update – May 9 – USD dominance rips through every market on FED.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Monday Markets Blues

Can the cause sometimes take place after the effect? This is what looks to be the case this week. The USD surged to 2001 and has been bought and fixed income sold on ideas that the Fed had taken a hawkish turn, with investors searching for safety. The hikes will be front-loaded with the next 50 bp hikes discounted for the next two meetings (June and July) and a strong leaning for the same in September (~66%). Yields 10-year is up 1.0 bp at 3.14%. Stock markets are broadly lower, with Japanese markets underperforming and the Nikkei down -2.5%. Tighter Covid lockdowns in Beijing and Shanghai raised pressure on its economy, while China reported faster-than-expected growth in exports for April, while imports were flat.

Meanwhile in the market, speculation that President Putin might declare war on Ukraine in order to call up reserves during his speech at “Victory Day” celebrations could further hurt market sentiment.

The week ahead is important because it may show the first signs that peak inflation is at hand.

* USDIndex above 104.10.
* Equities – Nikkei down -2.5%. The ASX closed with a loss of -1.2%, the CSI is currently down -1.4%, while Hong Kong was closed today. USA500 led the way with a drop of 1.1%, while USA100 shed 1.0%.
* Yields 10-year is up 1.0 bp at 3.14%, Australia’s long yield also continued to climb and the German 10-year rate is up 0.4 bp at 1.13% this morning.
* Oil back to 109, after EU and G7 mull Russian oil imports while Saudi Arabia cut prices for buyers in Asia as China’s lockdowns weigh on demand in the region.
* Gold drifted back to 1869 as it looks less attractive from the safety of USD, while elevated yields further weighed on prices.
* Bitcoin hammered! Gapped down to33,228. The start of a sharp technical fall ?
* FX markets – EURUSD is just over the 1.05 mark, AUD and NZD also struggled against the largely stronger USD. USDJPY climbed above the 131 mark and Cable is at a near 2-year low at currently 1.2259.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) USOIL (-2.17%) drifted to S1 at 108.15 in the EU open. MAs & Stochastics bearishly crossed, and RSI is at 41 sloping lower. H1 ATR 0.91, Daily ATR 4.43.

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

Market Update – June 8 – Wait & See Mode Ahead of US Inflation.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD moved lower at close but is currently retaking the 102.50 level. Stocks also higher into close (NASDAQ over 1%) on retailers and energy stocks, Yields cooled (10yr below 3%), Oil rallied over 1% to 13-week high on tight supply from private inventories. Yellen persistent high inflation “Unacceptable”. Demand for the safety of Treasuries picked up after the World Bank slashed its global growth forecast by nearly a third to 2.9% for 2022, warning that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has compounded the damage from the COVID-19 pandemic, and many countries now face recession. In Asia, a rally in Chinese tech stocks that followed a batch of game approvals helped to keep stock market sentiment supported overnight, and the Hang Seng has gained nearly 2% so far. The CSI 300 is up 0.4%, while ASX and Nikkei lifted 0.4% and 1.0% respectively.

Overnight – JPY GDP beat (-0.1% vs. -0.3%) & Economic Watchers Sentiment better (54.0 vs 51.9), CHF Unemployment in line (2.2%) but German Industrial Production missed significantly (0.7% vs 1.3%).

* USDIndex dipped to 102.24 after Target Corp warned about excess inventory and said it would cut prices, offering some relief to those who think inflation may be peaking.
* Equities – CSI 300 is up 0.4%, while ASX and Nikkei lifted 0.4% and 1.0% respectively. GER40 and UK100 futures are posting gains of 0.3% and 0.2% respectively.
* Yields 10-year yield below the 3% mark helped extend the drop in yields.
* USOIL spiked to $120.35 – low oil inventories, Goldman Sacks – “we now forecast that Brent prices will need to average $135/bbl in 2H22-1H23 (up $10/bbl vs. prior forecast) for inventories to finally normalize by late 2023, the binding constraint to prices in our view. This represents summer retail prices reaching levels normally associated with $160/bbl crude prices”. The CEO of global commodities trader Trafigura said oil prices could soon hit $150 a barrel and go higher this year, with demand destruction likely by the end of the year.
* Bitcoin down to $30320 area now.
* FX markets – USD is continuing its ascent and USDJPY is above 133.53. EURUSD is slightly below 1.07 and Cable is at 1.2560.

Today EU GDP and Employment change, US Wholesale Inventories and EIA Crude Oil Stocks change.

Market Update – June 9 – European Futures Down Ahead of ECB.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USDIndex steady at 102.50 but overall USD on bid. Stocks traded mostly lower, with China bourses hit by news suggesting that virus restrictions in part of Shanghai are already being tightened again amid a rise in case numbers, shortly after Covid lockdowns were lifted. Shanghai will lock down the Minhang district on Saturday morning for mass COVID-19 testing, according to Bloomberg. Hang Seng -0.9%, US stocks closed down over 1% (INTEL -5.28%), Yields back up (10-yr over 3% again), JPY pressured, Brent & WTI rose over 2.5% on tight supply and China opening up. Yellen says some China tariffs still warranted. Bonds are under pressure, with a 6 bp jump in Australia leading the way overnight.

Overnight – China trade surplus widened as exports rebound.

* USDIndex dipped to 102.24.
* Equities – Hang Seng and CSI300 are currently down -0.9% and -0.8% respectively. JPN225 moved sideways, but the ASX lost 1.5%. GER40 and UK100 are both down -0.6% and US futures are also in the red. USA500 finished off -1.08%, while the USA30 was off -0.81% and the USA100 was -0.73% lower.
* Intel rethinks near-term spending plans amid economic uncertainty – freezes some hiring.
* Yields 10-year rose over 6 bps to test 3.045%. The 2-year was 4 bps higher at 2.77%. The 10-year Bund yield is up 0.4 bp at 1.35%.
* USOIL up to $123.13 after stronger-than-expected Chinese exports in May, but found a ceiling amid new Shanghai lockdown restrictions. Gold weaker again below 1850.
* NATGAS futures jump 25% this morning on US LNG outage.
* FX markets – Yen found some support in the near term. USDJPY is above 133.90. EURUSD found some buyers ahead of the ECB meeting, leaving EURUSD at 1.0712, while Cable dropped to 1.2516 and Sterling also declined against the EUR. Turkish lira slid to beyond 17.2.

Today ECB Rate Decision and Statement and US jobless claims.

ECB Preview: Markets are eagerly awaiting today’s press conference. Rate settings are expected to be held steady for now, and while there are some members who see the urgency to act sooner rather than later as inflation goes through the roof, the ECB’s timetable for the phasing out of stimulus effectively excludes a move on rates this week. Net asset purchases need to end first and Lagarde is expected to confirm that this will happen early in July, which would pave the way for a rate hike in July. Lagarde has already mapped out two moves in July and September and the basic scenario is for “gradual” 25 bp steps, although the discussion on a bolder kick off with a 50 bp boost in July has already started. We suspect that Lagarde will stick with a focus on “gradualism” for now. But she will not rule out a 50 bp step as the need to maintain credibility and assert the Bank’s commitment to price stability and the 2% inflation target seem increasingly urgent.



Biggest Mover @ (06:30 GMT) Platinum (-1.92%). Next key support at 970.00. H1 MAs aligning lower, MACD histogram sharply down, RSI 28, OS & declining, H1 ATR 3.91, Daily ATR 24.51.

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

Market Update – June 15.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD down (USDIndex 104.70), Stocks mixed (NASDAQ +0.18%, Dow -0.5% & S&P -0.38%). A boost to Australia’s minimum wage and RBA pledge to do what is necessary to meet the inflation target fueled the jump in yields. Expectations are now for 50 bp hikes in July as well as September and Australia’s curve shifted more than 20 bp higher today. – Yields extended higher as dip buyers have thrown in the towel for now, leaving sellers in control as the market adjusts to the potential for a very hawkish FOMC. (US 5yr & 7yr rates up to 3.606% and 3.59%, 2yr at 3.43%). US PPI increased 0.8% in May and the core rose 0.5% – bearish for the markets. ECB to hold emergency meeting “to discuss current market conditions”. A Bloomberg source story yesterday suggested that the ECB remains tight lipped on new plan to keep spreads in.

Quote:
“Against a backdrop of sky-high inflation, rising rates, and growing recession concerns, the S&P 500 has had its worst start to the year since 1962,” noted analysts at Goldman Sachs.
* USDIndex pulled back to 104.78.
* Υields have extended higher, at the highest rates in well over a decade. The 10-year cheapened over 12 bp to 3.488%, not seen since the spring of 2011.
* Equities – Nikkei and ASX lost a further 0.9% and 1.3% respectively. Hang Seng and CSI 300 are currently up 1.6% and 2.7%.
* Oil drifted to 116.55 before settling at 119.58 – amid FED and reports that US Senate Finance Committee chair Ron Wyden plans to introduce legislation setting a 21% surtax on oil company profits considered excessive.
* Golds near its lowest area in a month, now at $1,820.
* Bitcoin steady above $20K.
* BOJ offers to buy unlimited sum of JGBs with 7 years left until maturity.
* FX markets – EURUSD rebounded to 1.0498 from 1.0396, USDJPY back below 135 zone, Cable settled at 1.2040.

Today The focus will be on the ECB meeting but also on the dot plot and the terminal rate, as well as how Chair Powell assesses the outlooks of inflation, growth, and the labor market.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) USDIndex (-0.35%) down to 50-hour SMA, 104.72. Intraday, MAs aligned lower, MACD histogram neutral, RSI 41 & sloping. H1 ATR at 0.14 & Daily ATR at 0.79.

Market Update – June 16 – Its all about the Banks.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

FOMC hiked rates 75 bps, 10-1 vote; further increases likely appropriate. USD supported (USDIndex 104.80), Stocks higher despite Fed (NASDAQ +2.5%, Dow 1.4% & S&P +2%). Despite the Fed effecting the biggest increase in interest rates in 28 years, bonds and stocks rallied hard, underpinned by the fact Chair Powell said the 75 bps was an unusual move and would not be a common action, noting further hikes would be 50 bps or 75 bps. After hitting multi-month lows earlier this week, most regional currencies firmed on Thursday after US Bond Yields and the USD retreated from multi-year highs a day earlier as investors welcomed the Fed’s decision. It is clear that the Fed’s move will keep stagflation concerns alive. Asian markets traded mixed and US futures have pared earlier gains.

“Against a backdrop of sky-high inflation, rising rates, and growing recession concerns, the S&P 500 has had its worst start to the year since 1962,” noted analysts at Goldman Sachs.

* USDIndex held above 104.40.
* Υields 10-year Treasury yield climbed 1.5 bp to 3.3% while Australia’s bonds also moved up.
* Equities – GER40 and UK100 futures are mixed with the UK100 down -0.2% ahead of the BoE decision, the GER40 up 0.3%.
* Oil settled to 115.76 after a steep drop, supported by tight oil supply (100k b/d highest since April 2020) and peak summer consumption, after the Fed sparked fears of slower economic growth and less fuel demand.
* Golds at $1830 – safe-haven demand & inflationary hedge buying VS a higher interest rate.
* Bitcoin down to $20,157.
* FX markets – EURUSD at 1.0409, USDJPY back above 134, Cable down at 1.2100 ahead of BoE.

BoE Preview: The BoE is still set to deliver another 25 bps rate hike this week, but stagflation risks are looking nowhere as serious as in the UK That should prevent the central bank from joining the “50 bp club” of central banks, but for now is unlikely to stop the BoE from sticking to the tightening path. The statement may sound somewhat more cautious now. Even the BoE’s own scenario suggests a technical recession next year and the latest batch of forecasts from the OECD and others highlight that the economy is under-performing, with the fallout from Brexit, the sanctions against Russia, and political turmoil all weighing on the growth outlook. PM Johnson managed to survive a confidence vote last week, but many feel that his days are numbered. Even within his own party the threat to unilaterally step back from the Northern Ireland protocol is not very popular and rather than uniting the nation behind Brexit, the government is facing an increasingly fragmented union. Nevertheless, with inflation running far above target, the BoE has little choice but to lift rates further for now, especially as house price inflation is also still running at double digits, and wage growth is picking up in tight markets.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) GBPUSD (-0.84%) down to 1.20 area again. Intraday, MAs bearishly crossed, MACD histogram declines but holds above 0, RSI 40 & sloping. H1 ATR at 0.00377 & Daily ATR at 0.01434.

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

Market Update – June 17 – Deeply underwater.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD drifted (USDIndex 103.15) thanks to the hawkish SNB and BoE, and the potential for a shift from the BoJ. However, the BoJ eventually left policy on hold & maintained its ultra-low rate settings today, despite looking increasingly like the odd one out. Yen sinks. Stocks were crushed, hit by the surge in yields (NASDAQ -4.4%, Dow -2.4% & S&P -3.25%). Weakness in tech also weighed on USA100. VIX rose to an intraday high of 34.43, but dipped to 33.44 late in the day, versus Wednesday’s 29.62. Treasuries are rallying and yields are now richer (2-year declined to 3.10%, 10-year at 3.25%. They were as high as 3.39% and 3.49% on the day). European leaders back Ukraine’s bid to apply for EU membership.

*US mortgage rate surged 55 bps to 5.78%, the biggest weekly jump since 1987.
*US housing starts plunged -14.4% to 1.549 mln in May, permits fell to 1.695 mln.
*US Philly Fed index dropped to -3.3 in June, 6-month outlook fell to -6.8.
*US initial jobless claims slid -3k to 229k in June 11 week.

* USDIndex rebounded to 104.25 from 103.15.
* Υields 10-year climbed 5.5 bp to 3.25%.
* Equities – Nikkei and ASX lost -1.8% today. Elon Musk hints at layoffs in first meeting with Twitter employees.
* Oil settled at 117.50 – Oil set for weekly loss as traders weigh monetary tightening, although persisting supply tightness and new sanctions on Iran limited the downside.
* Gold retested $1856, currently lower at $1845. Platinum and palladium also set for weekly drops.
* Bitcoin steadily lower at $20k area.
Interest rate differentials between Japan and the US will continue to widen, which will keep pressure on the Yen, which at the start of the week was at the lowest level since 1998.
* FX markets – EURUSD at 1.0505, USDJPY back above 134.67, Cable at 1.2257 from 1.2405 highs.

Today: BoE Pill & Tenreyro speeches, EU HICP & Fed Chair Powell speech.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) CHFJPY (+1.54%) breaks 2013 peak. Intraday, MAs aligned higher, MACD lines extending northwards, RSI 76 & rising. ATR(H1) 0.0524 & ATR(D) at 1.506.

Market Update – July 11 – Stocks pressured, USD gains.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

The NFP report was slightly disappointing overall (372k June payroll gain & -74k in downward revisions). USD & Yields spiked, with USDIndex 107.59. Fed funds futures are dropping as the jobs report gives no reason for the FOMC to slow its policy trajectory, keeping a 75 bp hike at the July 26-27 FOMC intact and 50 bp move at the September 20-21 meeting. Stocks remain under pressure. Asian stocks struggled further overnight, with China bourses once again hit by lockdown concerns. Chinese CPI hotter at 2.5% vs 2.1%, but PPI cooler 6.15 vs 6.4%. COT report shows long positions on USD were reduced.

China discovered its first case of a highly transmissible Omicron subvariant in Shanghai and that new cases jumped to 63 in the country’s largest city from 52 a day earlier.

* USDIndex is heading for a new 20 year high – eased a bit at 107.23.
* Yields: The 2-year rate is up over 3.119%, 3-year at 3.165% & 10-year higher at 3.095%.
* Stocks : USA30 was down -0.15%, while the USA500 was off -0.08%. The USA100 rose 0.12%. In Europe, the picture is not much better and GER40 and UK100 futures are down -1.4% and -1.0%. Twitter fell 5% (with more to come) after MUSK withdrew the $44bln offer. The market mood will be tested by earnings from JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley on Thursday, with Citigroup and Wells Fargo the day after.
* Oil prices fell slightly today reversing some gains amid lockdown fear in China, i.e. concerns about tight supply. USOIL at $102.96 – New mass COVID testing in China potentially hitting demand.
* Gold steady for a 3rd day at $1,732-$1,750.
* FX Markets: USDJPY at 137.26 – 24-year high. Japan’s ruling conservative coalition’s strong election showing indicated no change to lose monetary policies.

Today - Fed’s Williams speech.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) EURUSD (–0.62%) down to 1.0105. MAs aligning lower, MACD histogram negative & declining, RSI 31, H1 ATR 0.0014, Daily ATR 0.01032.

Market Update – July 12 -USD spiked, Oil fell & Euro closer to parity.

USD spiked, Oil fell and the Euro inched closer to parity. The strong haven bid rise as the prospect of further tightening by central banks, renewed COVID outbreaks in China and Europe’s energy shortages spooked investors. The Fed’s George, the dissenter in favor of a 50 bp June hike, noted concerns over aggressive policy action & the hawk Bullard still favors a 75 bp move. Recession angst again cropped up and hammered equities with weakness in megacap tech knocking the USA100 down -2.26%. USDIndex above 108.00. Wall Street’s losses have deepened. China imposing strict covid restrictions amid a rise in the subvariant BA.5 Omicron. Earnings season starts on Thursday with JPMorgan kicking it off. It could be a tough season for profits given rising costs. Bloomberg cites IBES data from Refinitive showing Q2 y/y earnings growth of 5.7% which would be the slowest since Q4 2020 and down from 6.8% from April 1.

Twitter Inc TWTR.N sent a letter to Elon Musk saying his effort to abandon his $44 billion takeover is “invalid and wrongful” and that Twitter has not breached any of its obligations, according to a regulatory filing.

* USDIndex broken through the 108.00 level, currently at 108.32 – highest since October 2002.
* Yields: 10-year sector was the outperformer yesterday, back below the 3.00% level again to 2.97%.
Stocks: USA100 tumbled -2.26%. The USA500 is off -1.15%, and the USA30 has slid -0.52%.
* USOIL down to $102.00 support.
* Gold steady for a 3rd day at $1,730.
* FX Markets: EURUSD dip to within 4 pips of parity at 1.0004, USDJPY spiked to 137.47. The AUDUSD slumped and was one of the worst performers versus the USD amid growing recession angst that has overshadowed the two consecutive 50 bp hikes from the RBA.
* Today – PepsiCo earnings, German ZEW, & BoE’s Governor Bailey speech



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) GBPJPY (-0.25%) Fallen from a test of 164.50 on Monday, to 162.40 now, traded below 162.00 on Thursday. MA’s aligned lower, MACD histogram & signal line lower and below 0 Line, RSI 33.00 and falling. H1 ATR 0.287, Daily ATR 1.895.

Market Update – July 14 – Focus on PPI & Earnings.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

It was all about June CPI and the report did not disappoint. Risk was for a hot report and the Administration warned of rising pressures. The most dramatic movers were the hot CPI report and the BoC’s 100 bp hike. Those opened the door for an outsized Fed move and in turn heightened risk for a recession. A bearish curve inversion play as the data nail the coffin for a 75 bp hike on July 27, with nontrivial risk of more aggressive action, either with a 100 bp increase which the BoC just effected, or with consecutive 75 bp moves in July and September. USD sustained gains, Oil settled at 200 DMA and Stocks traded mixed. Stocks were up 0.6% and 0.4% in Japan and Australia respectively, the latter helped by a record low unemployment report (50-year low) while Chinese imports continue to linger as the country’s Covid policy keeps a lid on activity. The AUD rallied on the numbers, as traders boosted speculations for a 75 bp rate hike from the RBA in August.

* USDIndex held above 108.00 level, but failed to break 3-day resistance.
* Yields: the 10-year ended over 7 bps lower at 2.89%, reflecting credibility in the FOMC’s policy stance. Fed funds futures priced in a 54% chance for a 100 bp rate hike on July 27 with rising odds for 170 bps in hikes from here.
* Stocks: USA100 tumbled -0.15%. The USA500 is off -0.45%, and the USA30 has slid -0.67%.
* USOIL traded at $95 holding above 200-day SMA.
* Gold found a bid but gains were trimmed. Currently down to $1,706.
FX Markets: EURUSD holds fractionally above parity at 1.0002, USDJPY skyrocketed to 139.28, Cable fell to * 1.1856. AUD and to a lesser extent the NZD gained.
* Today – US calendar has jobless claims and PPI, but the earning releases are in the spotlight with JPMorgan Chase & Co., Morgan Stanley, First Republic Bank, Cintas etc.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) NZDJPY (+1.62%) breached 85.20. MAs aligned higher, MACD histogram & signal line extend further northwards, RSI above 701 but falling. H1 ATR 0.193, Daily ATR 0.975.

Market Update – July 15.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD steady at 108.50, Oil holds above 200 DMA, Stocks and bonds weaker on poor earnings news and bearish spillover from Europe on recession fears and political turmoil, and dove on the initial PPI print which kept the door open for a hefty 100 bp rate hike from the FOMC at the upcoming July 26-27 meeting. China bourses were under pressure after weaker than expected data that included a 0.4% y/y rise in GDP, which clearly missed expectations for a 1.0% y/y rise.

Equity Market: JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley missed earning forecasts. Net income at both lenders fell nearly 30% in the second quarter as work on IPOs and SPACs dried up. It was the first earnings miss from either JPMorgan — the largest US lender by assets and an industry bellwether — or Morgan Stanley since the start of 2020. Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. dragged Chinese tech shares lower as concerns about a crackdown on the sector resurfaced after company executives were reported to be facing an inquiry linked to the theft of a vast police database.

* USDIndex garnered strong early support and rose to 29on diverging central bank stances and political uncertainties before drifting to 108.55.
* Yields: the 10-year was 2.8 bps higher at 2.961%, versus a 3.02% intraday peak.
* Stocks: In China, fresh worries of regulatory pressure are adding to a decline in tech stocks. The ASX also struggled and corrected -0.7%, but the Nikkei found a footing and lifted 0.5%, with the GER40 gaining nearly 1%, the UK1004%, and a 0.2% rise in the USA100.
* USOIL traded at $95.50 holding above 200-day SMA.
* Gold near 5th consecutive weekly loss. Currently down to $1,704.73.
* FX Markets: EURUSD slumped below parity to 9952before it bounced to 1.0023, USDJPY is still at a very high level at 138.70, Cable at 1.1820.
* Today –US Retail Sales. Earnings: UnitedHealth Group, Wells Fargo, BlackRock, Citigroup etc.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) CHFJPY (+0.56%) breached 141.66. MAs aligned higher, MACD histogram & signal line extend further northwards, RSI above 70 but falling. H1 ATR 0.212, Daily ATR 1.404.

Market Update – July 28 – Stocks & Treasuries rally, USD dives post FOMC.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USDIndex tanked over a whole big number to 106.00, from 107.25 as the FED raised interest rates 75bp (its 4th rise in 2022). Ongoing rises will be “appropriate” and “highly attentive” to inflation. However, Powell gave no notice as to whether 50bp or 75bp in September was appropriate*. US Stocks rallied hard** (NASDAQ +4.06%), betting on 50bp. NVDA+7.60%, AMZN+5.37%, TSLA+6.17%. However, after hours Meta +6.55% posted a 1% DECLINE in Revenue (the first in its history), shares dropped -4.65%. Asian markets mixed (1 million in Wuhan in lockdown again) (Hang Seng -0.35%, Nikkei +0.23%). European FUTS higher. Yields up again +1.78%, Oil rallied to $98, Gold higher at $1740 and BTC moved up to $23k.

Biden & Xi due to speak today, Manchin (Dem. Senator holding up Biden’s climate Bill) backs down. PBOC to pump $148bn to stabilize real estate sector.




* USDIndex weakens further to 105.92 now. YEN outperforms in Asian session.
* Equities – USA500 closed higher +102.56 pts (+2.62%) (4023), US500FUTS at 34019 now. 4th 8%+ rally of the year, previous 3 have resulted in lower lows..is the bottom in or is it a dead cat bounce?
* Yields 10-year yield dived into close to 2.734%, recovered to 2.78% now.
* Oil – in–focus again as inventories had a 4.5m drawdown vs 1.5m, rallied to $98.90.
* Gold – weaker USD helped lift the precious metal to $1740 highs currently from $1711 lows yesterday.
* Bitcoin also rallied to trade at $23.1K now.
* FX Markets – EURUSD rallied from within 7 pips of 1.0100 yesterday to trade at 1.0227, USDJPY dived under 135.30 now, from 137.50 yesterday. Cable broke resistance at 1.2080 to trade to 1.2180 now.

Overnight – NZD Business Confidence improves (-56.7 vs -62.6) AUD Import Prices slip and Retail Sales miss significantly (0.2% vs 0.9%).

Today: German CPIs, US Q2 GDP (Advance), Q2 PCE. Earnings from Barclays, Anglo American, Nestle, EDF, L’Oréal, Amazon, Apple, Intel, and many more.

Market Update – August 1.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

1st day of the month – Fears over slowing growth and expectations for moderation in Fed rate hikes overshadowed still hot inflation prints.

USDIndex sinks again to 105.50, while against the Yen it extended to 6-week lows, i.e. 131.96. US data out Friday showed stubbornly high inflation and wages growth. Corporate earnings have mostly beaten lowered forecasts. The China PMI reports missed miserably and flagged risks to the overall outlook as the country’s zero-Covid policy continues to bite. Hong Kong’s benchmark underperformed and lost -0.2%. US Stocks are steady. Nikkei and ASX gained 0.6% and 0.7%, GER40 and UK100 futures are narrowly mixed in opening trade.

Overnight: China’s property developers in focus and Alibaba still weighed down after the US included the company in the delisting watchlist. Evergrande failed to deliver a restructuring plan; Alibaba added to SEC List of Chinese Firms Facing Delisting, along with another 200 companies. German Retail Sales plunged -1.6% m/m in June – flags ongoing cost pressures that coupled with the threat of energy rationing means recession risks are palpable now. HSBC posted a higher profitability target and bullish dividends outlook.

* USDIndex weakens & YEN outperforms.
* Equities – USA500 closed higher +48.8 pts (+1.21%) (4072), US500FUTS at 4105 now. Fed’s Kashkari affirmed the bank’s commitment to bring inflation down, which acted as a reminder that the Fed will continue to hike rates, even if the path of the tightening cycle may not be quite as aggressive as markets had feared at one point.
* Yields 10-year Treasury rate lifted 1.6 bp to 2.665 (after sliding to the lowest since early April at 2.618% at the end of last week).
* Oil – drifted back to 97.60, as OPEC+ meeting on Thursday and is expected to produce an increase in supply, even if only minor.
* Gold – steady at 2-week highs at $1764.
* Bitcoin at 23,170.
* FX Markets – Yen remains the main beneficiary of the correction in haven flows into the USD and USDJPY slipped to 131.96. The USDCHF also caught a bid, i.e. 0.9500 and Sterling rose against both USD and EUR – with GBPUSD now at 1.2196, while EURUSD is lingering at 1.0240.

Today – UK, Australian central banks expected to hike this week, while it is NFP week as well.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) USDJPY (-0.79%). Broke 132.00 low. 1Hour-MAs flattened, but MACD histogram negative & falling, RSI sideways 34.50. H1 ATR 0.305, Daily ATR 1.354.

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

Market Update – August 3 – Market “Pushed and Pulled”.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

The market was pushed and pulled by geopolitical risks and uncertainties, earnings ups and downs, Fed tightening angst and recession risks.

USDIndex bounced to 106.38 currently steady at 106, Yields spiked sharply higher with selling persisting into the close (10yr 2.746% having challenged 2.51% overnight) dragged by hawkish Fedspeak and the safe arrival of Pelosi. The safe-haven Yen continued its slide. US Stocks ended in the red. Asian markets mixed as China has its warheads trained on Taiwan but on the flipside markets are trying to weigh growth risks and the Fed outlook (Hang Seng & Nikkei 0.5%, CSI 300 -0.2%). European FUTS also lower (-0.6%). Oil at $94, Gold holds over $1750 and BTC down under $23k.

Fed’s Mester said below trend growth is not a bad outcome, and it is necessary to get inflation under control. Fed President Daly said the FOMC is likely to raise rates and keep them high for a while, in her comments in a LinkedIn interview – ‘Nowhere Near’ Finished With Inflation Fight.

Data: A surprisingly strong bounce in German exports left the German trade balance with a solid surplus. China Services PMI readings also looked pretty strong – acceleration in activity. Swiss CPI inflation held steady at 3.4% y/y.

* USDIndex managed to climb back over 106.000 but it was weaker overnight, holding the 105.000 handle for a third straight day. YEN has given up some of its haven bid & EUR and GBP have also slumped.
* Equities – USA30 tumbled -1.23% (32.4K), USA500 off -0.67% (4.1K) and USA100 -0.16% lower (below 13K).
* Yields 10-year has already corrected -3.5 bp at 2.71% today and the 10-year Bund yield is down -1.8 bp at 0.79%.
* Oil – steady at $94.00 from $96.30 ahead of the OPEC+. It is likely to keep output unchanged in September, or raise it slightly.
* Gold – rose in the morning to $1768 after a sharp decline yesterday.
* Bitcoin directionless, at 22.98K.
* FX Markets – EURUSD dip to 1.0155 zone, USDJPY is at 133.18, as haven flows into the Yen have receded. Cable turns below 1.2200 again.

Today – OPEC+ meeting, EU Retail Sales and US ISM Services. Earnings: CVS Health, Booking Holdings, Moderna, Regeneron etc.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) USDZAR (-0.70%) posted an evening start pattern this morning at 16.70. MAs flattened, MACD lines held negative , RSI 53, OS & falling, H4 ATR 0.12128, Daily ATR 0.26199.

Market Update – August 4 – BOE Day!


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USDIndex firmed to 106.82 on Fed outlook and solid data before sliding to 106.38 at the close. Yields spiked on top of the heavy losses Tuesday (10yr 2.51%), then slipped again on strong factory orders data, with an eye on Friday’s NFP which will partly determine the magnitude of Fed tightening (10yr 2.7191%). US Stocks supported by good earnings news, and gains accelerated after solid data, shrugging off the jump in bond yields as the Fed funds futures market repriced for a 50-50 potential for a 75 bp September rate hike. European FUTS also higher. Oil dipped to $90.35 after OPEC+ disappointed and agreed to a “very small increase” in September output of 100k barrels per day – the smallest output increase in its history. Gold holds at $1770. Today – BOE expected to hike by 50 bp but stresses data dependency of further tightening moves.

Overnight: US ISM-NMI services index rise to 56.7 from a 2-year low, US factory orders beat estimates climbed 2.0%. The rise joins big declines for the ISM, Chicago PMI, Dallas Fed and Philly Fed, but gains for the Richmond Fed and Empire State, to leave an 8-month producer sentiment pull-back from robust November peaks. Surging interest rates and a flattening in real household spending as prices rise are aggravating the downtrend, though sentiment also faces support as businesses continue to restock.

* USDIndex is holding above 106 at currently 106.30.
* Equities – USA30 rose 1.29% (32.74K), USA500 rallied to 1.59% (4.15K) and USA100 surged 2.59%.
* Yields 10-year lifted 2.5 bp to 2.73% and rates are also higher in Japan and Australia. The 10-year Bund yield is down -0.5 bp at 0.863% though after another contraction in German manufacturing orders flagged recession risks for the region.
* Oil – dips to at $90.35. OPEC+ dissapointed and agreed to a “very small increase” in September output of 100k barrels per day – the smallest ouput increase in its history.
* Gold – supprted by pullback in yields at $1770.
* FX Markets – EURUSD dip to looks weak at 1.0163 and Cable is at 1.2147. USDJPY has lifted to 134.20 as recent haven flows into the yen recede. AUD and NZD regained some ground as global risk sentiment improved a little and a record Australian trade surplus underlined the natural inflows supporting the currency.

Today – The BoE expected to hike by 50 bp but with a stress on the data dependency of further tightening moves. Front loading the tightening cycle also may also make sense in light of the leadership contest, with Liz Truss, the favorite to succeed Johnson mulling a shake up of the BoE. Investors are also waiting for details on the BoE’s plans for gilt sales. Governor Bailey previously indicated that the balance sheet will shrink at a pace of GBP 50-100 bln in the first year – including redemptions.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) NZDJPY (+0.99%) reverted week’s losses and currently at 84.47. MAs aligned higher, MACD lines rising, RSI 76. H1 ATR 0.202, Daily ATR 0.993.
