MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 24th June 2019.




* An important week is coming up as we will have an outcome of the well anticipated Trump-Xi meeting, while finally the 1st and 2nd of July will see OPEC+ members meet in Vienna. In addition, NFPs will be out on Friday and a broad range of PMIs and other early indicators are expected during the week.

Monday – 01 July 2019

* OPEC Meetings – OPEC meetings are usually held in Vienna and are attended by representatives from 15 oil-rich nations.

* Caixin Manufacturing PMI (CNY, GMT 01:45) – The Caixin manufacturing PMI is expected to hold into the neutral zone in June.

* Markit Manufacturing PMI (EUR and GBP, GMT 07:55-08:30) – In June, the German PMI is expected to remain unchanged in the negative region, while UK PMI is seen strengthening at 52.0 from 49.4 last month.

* ISM Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM index is expected to fall to 51.5 in June from 52.1 in May, compared to a 14-year high of 61.4 in August. Overall, we’ve seen a stabilization in sentiment since the late-2018 pullback.

Tuesday – 02 July 2019

* Interest rate Decision and Statement (AUD, GMT 04:30) – Reserve Bank of Australia is expected to cut its cash rate by 25 bp to 1.00%. The CPI y/y rate came in at 1.3% from 1.8%, as the RBA targets underlying CPI at 2%-3%. The RBA stated this month that a rate cut “would be appropriate” should inflation remain weak. Australian OIS pricing is fully discounting a cut in the cash rate. Nevertheless, the Australian economy remains the most exposed developed-nation economy to China.

* United States – Independence Day

* Retail Sales (AUD, GMT 01:30) – Retail Sales are expected to climb to 0.2% for May, after falling to -0.1% last month.

Friday – 05 July 2019

* NFP and Labour Market Data (USD, GMT 12:30) – A 170k June nonfarm payroll rise is projected, following a 75k increase in May. The unemployment rate should remain steady at 3.6% from April, and hours-worked are estimated to rise 0.2%. Average hourly earnings should rise 0.3% m/m, for a y/y gain of 3.2%, above the 3.1% pace of April but below the 3.4% cycle-high pace of February. The payroll gains are seen averaging 169k in 2019, down from a 223k average in 2018.

* Labour Market Data (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The unemployment rate fell to 5.4% in May from 5.7% in April as the participation rate eased to 65.7 from 65.9. Hence, this strong reading is expected to hold for June, while employment change is expected to grow slightly up to 8K from the 27.7K seen in May after the 106.6k surge in April.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 2nd July 2019.




FX News Today

* Australia’s 10-year rate fell -2.7 bp, as the RBA slashed the cash rate by 25 bps to a record low of 1.00%, citing the slowdown in global trade.

* US President Trump may have signalled that talks with China have already restarted, but the US reportedly also expanded a list of European products that may get hit with tariffs, which highlights that the restart of US-Sino trade talks doesn’t mark the end of global trade tensions.

* Stock markets already turned cautious again in Asian trade.

* US futures are marginally higher and the WTI future is trading at $59.13 per barrel.

* European stock futures are moving higher in tandem with US futures after a lacklustre session in Asia.

* Meanwhile weaker than expected German retail sales at the start of the session confirmed that the weakness in the manufacturing sector is spreading to the rest of the economy, which will keep the ECB on course for further easing.

* EU leaders will meet again to resume discussion on the next president of the European Commission and other top posts that will become vacant this year, including the ECB presidency.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* AUDUSD jumped to 0.6985 at the Asia session amid the RBA announcement, after the decline seen yesterday on Dollar strength. The asset manage to held above 20- and 50-day SMA. A trade above 0.7000 which is the midpoint on yesterday’s decline could suggest further upside path for AUDUSD. Support comes at 2-day low, at 0.6955. A shift back to the latter could open the doors towards June’s values.

* EURUSD faded to 7-session lows of 1.1275, down from the 1.1360 highs seen ahead of the NY open. Weaker European PMI data, along with more dovish ECBspeak, saw sentiment toward the Euro soured some. For the USD side of the equation, markets have toned down their Fed rate cut expectations, leaving the odds of a 50 bp cut in July a long shot. As a result, the Dollar has posted gains, helped by the trade truce agreed over the weekend. There are still likely to be further trade fireworks going forward, but as long as the US economy continues to outperform rivals, USD downside should be limited going forward.20-day moving average of 108.08, with Support at the overnight low of 107.55.

Main Macro Events Today

* Construction PMI (GBP, GMT 09:30) –The June construction PMI is seen rebounding to 49.4 after 48.6 in May.

* Manufacturing PMI (CAD, GMT 14:00) – The Markit Manufacturing PMI in the Canada is expected to come out at about 49.0 in June,slightly below the 49.1 in May.

* BoE’s Governor Carney speech (GBP, GMT 14:05)

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 3rd July 2019.




FX News Today

* Stock market sentiment turned cautious again during the Asian session.

* EU leaders formally nominate IMF head Lagarde to head the ECB and replace Mario Draghi. Lagarde, is clearly a much more dovish option in comparison to Weidmann, who has been the leader of the hawks on the council.

* Lagarde’s nomination was enough for investors to price in even more easing and asset purchases, despite the fact that a Bloomberg report suggested that the majority of policy makers are not ready to make a more in July and prefer to wait for the updated forecasts in September. EGB futures have extended gains on the news.

* BoE’s Carney flags downside risks from trade. The BoE head repeated that the central bank sees the need for rate hikes if Brexit is smooth, he added that markets are giving more weight to a no deal scenario and that the BoE will reassess Brexit and trade risks at the August meeting.

* The US’ threat of additional tariffs on European goods highlighted that geopolitical trade tensions are far from over.

* The private China services PMI slowed to a four month low in June, adding to signs that much of the damage has already been done.

* Nikkei and Hang Seng lost -0.72% and -0.26% respectively and the Shanghai Comp is down -0.86%.

* President Trump plans to nominate Christopher Waller and Judy Shelton to the Fed Board of Governors to fill the two vacancies.

* GER30 and UK100 futures are currently posting slight gains, underpinned also by easing hopes, while U.S. futures are in the red, after a largely weaker close in Asia.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* USDJPY has come under some pressure, dropping to 107.52. Modest risk-off conditions have weighed, while the sentiment boost seen after the US/China trade truce appears to have worn off, leaving the reality that it may well be quite some time before agreements are made, and tariffs come off. Until some progress is made, it appears USDJPY upside will be limited.

* XAUUSD rallied to 1437.68 high,, underpinned by easing hopes and by geopolitical trade tensions which clearly are far from over. AMid EU open Gold reversed slightly lower to 1421 area and it is currently consolidating above it. Support holds at 1421, 1413 and 1407.55. Resistance levels come at 1428.55, 1431.80 and 1440.

Main Macro Events Today

* United States – Independence Day – Early close at 13:00 GMT

* Services PMI (GBP, GMT 08:30) –The June Services PMI is seen stable at 51 m/m.

* Trade Balance (USD, GMT 12:30) – It is expected to widen in May to -$54.6 bln (median -$53.5 bln) from -$50.8 bln in April.

* ADP Employment Change (USD, GMT 13:15) – Employment change is seen spiking to 150k in the number of employed people in June, compared to the weak 27k reading seen last month.

* ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM-NMI index is expected to fall to 56.0 in June from 56.9 in May and a 19-month low of 56.1 in March, versus a 13-year high of 60.8 in September.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 4th July 2019.




FX News Today

* 10-year Treasury yields closed at 1.950% and the Dow lifted to record highs ahead of today’s holiday in the US, as investors priced in deep central bank easing.

* In Europe, Bund yields are holding steady around -0.39% in opening trade, and Italian yields in particular continue to slide, as investors buy into hopes that under Lagarde’s helm the ECB will take a more benign view on deficit spending and implement further easing to support struggling economies.

* US President Trump once again accused China and Eurozone of currency manipulation and stock markets turned more cautious during the Asian session amid lingering trade concerns and with trading volumes below average as investors wait for the key US jobs report on Friday.

* European stock futures are slightly higher, while US futures are marginally in the red.

* The WTI future is trading at $56.85 per barrel.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* USDJPY recovered from post-ADP lows of 107.58, bouncing to 107.82 highs, after failing to test the overnight 6-session low of 107.54. Soft Treasury yields (10-year at 1.95%) have limited upside for the pairing, though another Wall Street rally should contain losses. Activity is likely to wind down early today, as many make their way out the door on today’s Independence Day holiday.

* AUDUSD: The Australian Dollar has outperformed for a second day, presently near highs with a 0.6% gain versus the US buck and a 0.8% advance against the pound, which is the weakest of the main currencies on the day so far. AUD-USD posted a 57-day at 0.7047, extending gains seen from yesterday’s at 0.6956, seen in the immediate wake of the RBA’s rate cut. Markets had mostly priced-in the move, with Aussie money markets having factored in 85% odds for it. Given this, along with some cautiously upbeat remarks on the outlook in RBA Governor Lowe’s statement, and the thawing in US-China tensions, the scene was set for a rally in the Australian Dollar. AUDUSD has support at 0.7017-20.

Main Macro Events Today

* United States – Independence Day

* Retail Sales (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Retail Sales are expected to climb to 1.6% for May, after the 1.5% last month.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 5th July 2019.




FX News Today

* Stock markets are little changed and awaiting today’s US jobs report.

* Hopes of further central bank easing have underpinned the latest rally in bonds and helped stock markets to move past lingering trade tensions.

* Today’s NFP report will be watched closely in the light of speculation for a move from the Fed this month. Anything but a much stronger than expected number will likely see markets continue to price in deep easing ahead.

* Topix and Nikkei are up 0.08% and 0.09% respectively, the Hang Seng lifted 0.12% and CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp 0.55% and 0.19%.

* Oil prices meanwhile are trading at $56.65, clearly below recent highs, despite ongoing tensions in the Middle East.

* Italian rates fall further as weaker than expected German manufacturing orders added to hopes for additional easing measures from the ECB.

* German manufacturing orders slumped -2.2 bp in the May reading, bringing the annual rate down to -8.6% y/y. Orders from within the Eurozone have now dropped for the second consecutive month while orders from outside the currency bloc fell back -5.7% m/m, after some strong months.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD edged out a 1.1273, which is just 5 pips from yesterday’s low. Market narratives have been centering on the ECB’s further turn to the dovish side, which has tipped the Bund yield curve into negative right out to the 20-year maturity, while the 10-year yield has forayed below -0.40%, undershooting the deposit rate.

* GBPUSD found a footing after three straight down days, which yesterday culminated in a 15-day low at 1.2557. The pair has since taken root around 1.2575-90. EURGBP similarly came to a directional halt below the six-day high seen yesterday at 0.8990, which is just 2 pips short of the six-month peak that was seen last week.

Main Macro Events Today

* NFP and Labour Market Data (USD, GMT 12:30) – A 170k June nonfarm payroll rise is projected, following a 75k increase in May. The unemployment rate should remain steady at 3.6% from April, and hours worked are estimated to rise 0.2%. Average hourly earnings should rise 0.3% m/m, for a y/y gain of 3.2%, above the 3.1% pace of April but below the 3.4% cycle-high pace of February. The payroll gains are seen averaging 169k in 2019, down from a 223k average in 2018.

* Labour Market Data (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The unemployment rate fell to 5.4% in May from 5.7% in April as the participation rate eased to 65.7 from 65.9. Hence, this strong reading is expected to hold for June, while employment change is expected to grow slightly up to 8K from the 27.7K seen in May after the 106.6k surge in April.

* Ivey PMI (CAD, GMT 14:00) – A survey of purchasing managers, the Index provides an overview of the state of business conditions in the country.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 9th July 2019.




FX News Today

* Stock markets remain cautious ahead of Powell’s testimony, after jobs data reduced hopes of big rate cuts from the Fed.

* Tech stocks were hit by a slump in Apple Inc. after a broker downgrade.

* Topix and Nikkei pared early gains in the course of the session and are currently down -0.22% and up 0.06% respectively.

* Central bank expectations remain a major force for stock market moves, amid lingering geopolitical trade tensions, which are far from over despite the restart of US-Sino talks.

* European futures as well as US futures are down -0.3-0.4% with the Nasdaq underperforming.

* In Europe, BTPs are currently outperforming, but Greek bonds, which rallied yesterday on the election result, are paring some of the gains.

* Released overnight, UK BRC retail sales came in weaker than expected and fell back -1.6% m/m in the same store measure. Still to come are Italian retail sales numbers and an I/L auction in Germany.

* Oil prices meanwhile continue to hold in the USD 57-58 range, with the WTI future currently trading at USD 57.50.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* GBPUSD retests again the 6-month low into EU open, at 1.2483. EURGBP remained buoyant, but markets still lacked the muster for a test of the recent six-month high at 0.8992. A 0.3% m/m contraction in the Halifax measure of UK house prices (released Friday) was the latest in a series of data disappointments out of the UK. As for Brexit, the news flow has remains quiet in terms of substantive developments. That will change as soon as the new prime minister, most likely no-deal-Brexit-if-necessary Boris Johnson, takes up the reigns (which will be later in the month). Cable has resistance at 1.2510-20. Next Support at 1.2420.

* Silver: Despite the decline seen the last 2 days, Silver manage to be held above the 20- and 50-week SMA, sustaining more than 50% of the gains seen in June. Breaching the uptrend Support at 14.90 and also the small bounce up to 15.10 suggest that the corrective pressure is growing again. The RSI is sloping to the upside again but still remains below 50 in the daily chart, while MACD remains within the positive area following a bear cross last week. The key level at $15.10 is now a Resistance whilst traction below the $14.90 would open $14.60 as the next Support. A break above Resistance couls retest the $15.25-$15.35 area.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 10th July 2019.




FX News Today

* Markets take a defensive stance ahead of Powell’s testimony to Congress and the release of the minutes from the last Fed meeting.

* Speaking overnight Atlanta Fed President Bostic said the central bank is debating the risks and benefits of letting the economy run a “little hotter” and while most are still expecting a 25 bp “insurance cut” this month, there are fears that Powell may close the door to rate cut hopes.

* GER30 and UK100 futures are narrowly mixed and US futures slightly in the red, after a mixed session in Asia overnight.

* KOSPI and KOSDAQ recovered as Japan and South Korea said they are planning talks on the trade tensions. Japan’s new export restrictions on materials vital to South Korea’s tech industry, and hopes of thawing relations helped KOSDAQ to gain 1.6%, elsewhere moves were pretty muted.

* Eurozone peripheral markets are outperforming, but yields are also up across Italy, Spain and Portugal.

* Trade risks, US-Iran tensions and in Europe the risk of a no-deal Brexit scenario keep markets looking to central banks for support.

* The WTI future meanwhile surged to $58.76 per barrel, after US data showed another drop in stock piles, which dampened concerns about oversupply.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* EURGBP has forayed above 0.9000 for the first time since early January while Cable has descended into 27-month low territory. EURGBP has now made this the 8th week out of the last nine where a new higher high has been set. The Pound has been trading with a 10-15% trade-weighted Brexit discount since the vote to leave the EU in June 2016.

* USDJPY was stopped in its tracks at 6-week highs of 108.96, the level coinciding with the 50-day Moving Average. Profit taking ensued, which took the pairing to 108.76 lows in early NY and Asia session. In addition to the noted technical resistance, Japanese exporter offers are reportedly parked from the 109.00 level, which should help cap gains going forward.

Main Macro Events Today

* Gross Domestic Product, Manufacturing & Industrial Production (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The GDP is the economy’s most important figure. May’s GDP is expected to be lower at -0.7% m/m following the -0.4% reading from last month. Meanwhile, Industrial and Manufacturing Production will be out as well. These two indices are expected to have increased, with industrial output providing an upwards contribution of 1.5% m/m in February, while manufacturing is projected to have risen to 2.3% from its -3.9% last month.

* Event of the week – Interest rate Decision and Conference (CAD, GMT 14:00) –Last time, Bank of Canada held the policy rate setting steady at 1.75%, matching widespread expectations, while the statement was largely optimistic in terms of the growth outlook. The expectations remain for no change of the policy outlook from the BoC through year-end, with the next move expected to be a modest rate hike in late 2020.

* FOMC Meeting Minutes (USD, GMT 18:00) -The FOMC Minutes report provides the FOMC Members’ opinions regarding the US economic outlook and any views regarding future rate hikes. In the last FOMC statement, on June 19, FOMC left rates unchanged but the statement, which removed the word “patient”, along with the inflation outlook, the dot-plot, and Bullard’s dissent in favor of easing, made for a dovish stance.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 11th July 2019.




FX News Today

* FOMC minutes of the June meeting were a little anti-climactic following Fed Chair Powell’s testimony. However, there were “many” indications that an easier policy stance was the more desired outcome.

* 10-year Treasury yields dropped -2.3 bp to 2.039% overnight, and reopened soft, stopped at 2.064% tailing out from 2.057%.

* The WTI future is trading at $60.57 per barrel, amid reports that Iranian boats attempted to “impede” the passage of a British tanker.showed another drop in stock piles, which dampened concerns about oversupply.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* FX Update: The USD posted fresh lows during the pre-Europe session in Asia as markets continued to readjust Fed easing expectations in the wake of Chairman Powell’s testimony yesterday, which was consistent with a 25 bp rate cut at the end of this month with an addendum stipulating that the Fed has the tools needed and could use them “aggressively” if necessary. The narrow trade-weighted USD index (DXY) has declined by about 0.6% over the last day, earlier printing a six-day low at 96.90, while EURUSD rose to a six-day high at 1.1280 and USDJPY posted a six-day low at 107.86. The US currency saw a similar magnitude of decline against other currencies. In the mix has been an unexpected upward revision to June German HICP, to 1.5% y/y from 1.3% y/y, while news that Iran tried to intercept a British tanker in the Strait of Hormuz (London claiming that its navel ship HMS Montrose saw off three Iranian vessels with “verbal warnings”) saw front-month WTI crude prices spike above $60.0, the first time above this level since late May.

Main Macro Events Today

* Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The German HICP inflation is expected to hold at 1.3% y/y for June.

* Consumer Price Index and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – May’s CPI has been estimated at a -0.1% drop for headline PPI in June, and a 0.2% rise in the core index. As expected readings would result in a y/y gain of 1.4% for headline PPI, slowing from a 1.8% pace in May, and a 2.1% y/y rise for the core, versus 2.3% in May.

* Fed Chair Powell Testimony 2nd day (USD, GMT 14:00)

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 15th June 2019.




* Trade warring and slowing global growth have set the scene for a possible earnings recession, which could catalyze a risk-off phase in global markets. Therefore next week’s inflation data out of some of the major economies, Australia’s employment report and China’s 2Q19 GDP report 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 banking sector.

Monday – 15 July 2019

* China Gross Domestic Product (CNY, GMT 02:00)- Chinese GDP is projected to see additional moderation to a 6.2% y/y pace in Q2, from the 6.4% y/y growth rate in Q1. The economy has grown at a 6.2% pace so far in 2019, while it was at a 6.6% pace for all of 2018, leaving the slowest growth rate since the 3.9% clip in 1990. It grew 6.8% in 2017.

* Consumer Price Index (NZD, GMT 22:45) – New Zealand inflation is expected to rise by 1.7% y/y in Q2, edging higher than the 1.5% observed in Q1.

Tuesday – 16 July 2019

* Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30) – The RBA has already cut rates to record lows and comments from the central bank governor yesterday didn’t sound as though the bank was readying further easing at the moment. Minutes are expected to shed further light regarding future easing stance.

* Average Earnings (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Average Earnings excluding bonus for May expected to slightly increase at 3.2% from 3.1% last month.

* ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for July is expected to be released at -19.0 compared to -21.1 last month.

* Retail Sales and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – 0.2% June retail sales gains are expected for both with and without autos, following 0.5% May gains for both measures. Unit vehicle sales ticked down to a 17.3 mln pace in June from an upwardly-revised 17.4 mln clip in May, and gasoline prices should provide a drag on retail activity given an estimated -3.5% figure for the CPI for gasoline. Real consumer spending is expected to grow at a 3.9% rate in Q2, following the 0.9% Q1 clip.

Wednesday – 17 July 2019

* Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – May CPI came in on the nose at 2.0% y/y, ebbing from 2.1% y/y in April and marking a return to the upper bound of the BoE’s target. Next week’s reading for June is expected to remain unchanged. The same stands for core CPI.

* Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI for June is expected to hold steady at 0.3% m/m, with the headline inflation at 1.2% y/y unchanged from the previous month. Still, as the weakness in manufacturing is now starting to reach the labour market, this means the prospect that underlying inflation pressures will build up soon look slim. This will keep the ECB on course for additional easing measures, unless there are major breakthroughs on the US-Sino trade and the Brexit front.

* Consumer Price Index and Core (CAD, GMT 12:30) – CPI is expected to decline at a 2.1% y/y pace in June.

* Housing Data (USD, GMT 12:30) – Housing starts should slow to a 1.260 mln pace in June, after a dip to 1.269 mln in May. Permits are expected to improve to 1.300 mln in June, after rising to 1.299 mln in May. Overall, we see a stronger trajectory for starts with a positive but slower pace for permits, as starts play catch-up with the higher permits trajectory.

Thursday – 18 July 2019

* Employment Data (AUD, GMT 00:30) – Australian labour market data is expected to deteriorate, as the employment is anticipated at 10K from 42.3K in May.

Friday – 19 July 2019

* Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – The main US consumer confidence index is expected to ease to 93.0 in March, compared to 93.8 in February.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 16th July 2019.




FX News Today

* Treasury yields steadied during the Asian session, with bonds erasing overnight gains and the 10-year yield now up 0.3 bp at 2.092%. JGB yields also backed up from lows and are down -0.1 bp at -0.129%, after returning from holiday, while yields declined in Australia and New Zealand after the minutes of the last RBA meeting showed the bank remains ready to adjust policy if needed.

* Stock markets meanwhile struggled in very light volumes as markets hold back ahead of key US data and earnings reports this week.

* On trade talks US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin said he and Trade-Representative Lighthizer may travel to Beijing if talks by phone this week are productive.

* The WTI future is trading below $60 per barrel and U.S. futures are posting marginal gains.

* In Europe, the GER30 future is currently slightly higher as are US futures, which UK100 futures are in the red, amid ongoing Brexit jitters as Boris Johnson, poised to succeed as PM next week, puts no-deal options firmly back on the table.

* Last week’s round of Brexit negotiators was reportedly one of the most difficult encounters of the last 3 years.

* Meanwhile JP Morgan, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and Taiwan Semiconductor are among the companies reporting results this weeks.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD has been held between its 20-day Moving Average of 1.1295 and its 50-day Moving Average at 1.1242 since Friday. A 25 basis point Fed rate cut at the end of the month has been priced into EURUSD, and focus now may shift to the ECB, where further stimulus could be in the cards at its next meeting on July 25, keeping EURUSD capped for the time being.

* USDJPY broke earlier today its 20-day Moving Average at 107.95, after printing 8-session high from 107.80 during the overnight Asian session. The mixed risk backdrop has limited the pairing’s gains since last week, as Wall Street trades on either side of flat, and Treasury yields remain pressured. The July 5 low of 107.76 remains a floor for the asset, while next Resistance stands at 108.20 and 108.50

Main Macro Events Today

* Average Earnings (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Average Earnings excluding bonus for May expected to slightly increase at 3.2% from 3.1% last month.

* ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for July is expected to be released at -19.0 compared to -21.1 last month.

* Retail Sales and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – 0.2% June retail sales gains are expected for both with and without autos, following 0.5% May gains for both measures. Unit vehicle sales ticked down to a 17.3 mln pace in June from an upwardly-revised 17.4 mln clip in May, and gasoline prices should provide a drag on retail activity given an estimated -3.5% figure for the CPI for gasoline.

FX News Today

* Stronger than expected US retail sales data put some pressure on bond markets.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 18th July 2019.




FX News Today

* Bonds were supported by ongoing trade concerns, with the tensions between Japan and South Korea add to the lingering concerns about US-Sino relations.

* A WSJ report suggesting that trade negotiations between the US and China are at a “standstill.” This was followed by fresh evidence of the impact that trade tensions have been having, with Japanese trade data revealing a worse-than-expected 6.7% y/y contraction in exports, which have shrank for seven straight months now.

* South Korea’s central bank unexpectedly cut interest rates and said it has room to act again.

* The Fed’s Beige Book still said economic activity “continued to expand at a modest pace”, but globally central banks are clearly preparing for a marked slowdown as trade tensions bite.

* Concerns about a weak earnings season are putting pressure on stock markets.

* The USA100 futures dipped -0.6% so far after Netflix Inc posted a surprise loss of US customers.

* The GER30 future is underperforming as well amid a broad based decline in European and US stock futures after a weak session in Asia overnight.

* The WTI future meanwhile is trading at $56.70 per barrel.

* Fears of a no deal Brexit scenario also continue to cloud over the outlook but while the ECB is expected to at least introduce an official easing bias next week, before cutting rates in September.

* ECB’s Villeroy highlighted this morning that central banks can’t perform miracles and need help from politicians and fiscal policies.

* EURUSD recovered slightly from 7-session lows of 1.1200, peaking at 1.1243. Brexit concerns have weighed on economic activity on the continent as well as the UK, and could limit Euro gains going forward. Risk for the EUR comes from the ECB as well, with a shift to an explicit easing bias expected by many at next week’s meeting, or at subsequent meetings. EURUSD support comes at 1.1218-1.1229, with Resistance at the 61.8% Fib. level from 2-week peak, at 1.1250-1.1252.

Main Macro Events Today

* Retail Sales (USD, GMT 08:30) – A -0.3%m/m contraction is expected for June retail sales, following 0.5% May loss. In the y/y comparison, sales are anticipated at 2.6% from 2.3%.

* Initial jobless claims (USD, GMT 12:30) – The initial jobless claims for the week of July 13 are estimated to fall to 204k, after falling to 209k in the week of July 6. Claims should average 215k in July, down from 222k in June and a 217k in May.

* Philly Fed Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Empire State index is estimated to rebound to 6.0 in July from -8.6 in June, which marked a 33-month low for the series. The producer sentiment readings all moderated through the turn of the year from elevated levels in response to global growth concerns, falling petroleum prices, fears about the ongoing trade war, and the partial government shutdown.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd June 2019.




* No deal Brexit risks will continue to unsettle markets next week as the two candidates hardened their rhetoric in end stages of the party elections. The ECB however will stand out as the event of the week,with Brexit uncertainty an important part of the overall outlook. Have a look at the most important events of the coming days in our usual weekly publication.

Tuesday – 23 July 2019

* The announcement of the next Prime Minister of the UK – Event of the week – Original Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson remains the front runner in the race and is widely expected to be confirmed as the new Prime Minister next Tuesday.

* Housing Data (USD, GMT 14:00) – A steady rate is anticipated for existing home sales in June at the firm 5.340 mln pace seen in May. The median sales price is estimated to ease to $275,000, for a y/y gain of 0.4%, down from 4.8% in May. In Q1, we saw an average sales pace of 5.207 mln. In Q2, a better 5.297 mln pace is expected.

Wednesday – 24 July 2019

* Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30) – Preliminary Composite PMIs for Eurozone and Germany are expected to fall in July, to 51.8 and 52.5 respectively, while the Manufacturing PMIs are forecasted at 48.0 and 45.4 respectively.

* Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing and Services PMIs are expected to decline in July, to 50.4 from 50.6 and 51.0 from 51.5 respectively.

Thursday – 25 July 2019

* German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – German IFO business confidence is expected to slip to 96.7, after it held steady the past 2 months around the 97 barrier.

* Event of the week – Interest rate Decision and Conference (EUR, GMT 11:45) –The ECB is meeting on July 25, – shortly after the confirmation of the new PM in London and ahead of the Fed, which is widely expected to cut rates again at the end of the month. On balance, markets see more merit in keeping official rates unchanged next week, while moving to an official easing bias and promising that rates will be at “current or lower” levels well into next year.

* ECB Monetary Policy Statement (EUR, GMT 12:30) -The July meeting will clearly be a “live” one with doves and hawks battling it out over when to deliver the now widely expected easing measures. It is expected that the majority will see more merit in keeping policy settings unchanged, but change the guidance to introduce a clear easing bias.

* Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to rise 1.0% in June, after a -1.3% figure in May. Transportation orders should rise 2.7%. Boeing orders rose to only 9 from just zero in May, with weakness due to the hit from problems with the Boeing 737 Max that prompted buyers to delay new purchase commitments. Vehicle assemblies should ease to 11.1 mln from an 11.3 mln pace in May. Durable shipments are expected to rise 0.5%, and inventories should rise 0.6%. The I/S ratio is expected to hold steady at 1.67 since April.

Friday – 26 July 2019

* Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – Gross Domestic Product is expected to grow 1.8% in Q2, with a sturdy 2.4% growth rate for final sales thanks to solid growth rates of 3.9% for personal consumption and 4.3% for government purchases, alongside a big $27 bln unwind of the Q1 inventory pop.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd July 2019.




FX News Today

* Global stock markets have been buoyant.

* Treasuries held modest gains to start the week, unwinding Friday’s selloff on the NY Fed’s walk back, albeit in a low volume trade.

* Japanese bourses outperformed in thin trade, while markets in Hong Kong and mainland China struggled to make headway and China’s new Star market of tech companies fell back after the rally on the first day of trading yesterday.

* Stock futures in the US and Europe are moving higher, led by a 0.6% rise in the GER30 future as markets hopes for at least a dovish signal from the ECB on Thursday, with some lingering hope that the central bank will already move this week.

* A meeting between tech executives and White House officials yesterday sparked hopes of progress on Huawei, which would help to clear hurdles for fresh face to face trade talks between China and the US.

* RBNZ has reportedly been taking a fresh look into unconventional measures and hopes of easing from not just the Fed, but also the ECB helped to underpin sentiment as did an announcement from US President Trump of a bipartisan deal to suspend the borrowing limit and boost government spending levels for two years.

* Oil prices remain underpinned by ongoing tensions in the Middle East, leaving the WTI future trading at USD 56.31 per barrel.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD – It descended to a 1-month low at 1.1189, driven by bearish bias for a third consecutive day. Recent tops have been limited to the 1.1280 region, and ahead of the ECB meeting on Thursday, the pairing remains in sell-the-rally mode. The Bank is expected to shift to an explicit easing bias this week, with a rate cut likely coming at the September meeting. While a Fed rate cut of 25 basis points is expected at the end of July, it has been priced into the Dollar for now. Further dovish noises from the ECB should see the Euro give way on Thursday, with the first major downside target at the June low, of 1.1159.

* NZDUSD – The biggest mover out of the main pairings has been NZDUSD, which fell over 0.3% in hitting a six-day low at 0.6729. This came with the RBNZ reportedly taking a fresh look into unconventional monetary policy stimulus measures. Next Support holds at 200-day SMA at 0.6718, while Resistance is set at Wednesday’s high, at 0.6745.

Main Macro Events Today

* The announcement of the next Prime Minister of the UK – Event of the week – Original Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson remains the front runner in the race and is widely expected to be confirmed as the new Prime Minister today.

* Housing Data (USD, GMT 14:00) – A steady rate is anticipated for existing home sales in June at the firm 5.340 mln pace seen in May. The median sales price is estimated to ease to $275,000, for a y/y gain of 0.4%, down from 4.8% in May. In Q1, we saw an average sales pace of 5.207 mln. In Q2, a better 5.297 mln pace is expected.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 24th July 2019.




FX News Today

* In Europe, Core EGB yields declined in the PM session with Gilts outperforming Bunds after the crowning of Boris Johnson as the new leader of the UK Conservative Party.

* Johnson is now set to be confirmed as Prime Minister tomorrow and investors are raising their no-deal Brexit bets, which is also fuelling easing expectations.

* A weaker than expected UK CBI industrial confidence survey as well as dovish leaning comments from BoE’s Saunders underpinned the rebound in Gilts and saw the UK 10-year rate falling back -1.6 bp to 0.688%.

* The ECB’s latest credit conditions survey also played into the hands of the doves at the council as it showed that credit conditions tightened in the second quarter.

* Stock markets meanwhile rallied on the combination of positive earnings reports and hopes of further central bank support.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* USDJPY recovered to 1-week highs of 108.28 overnight, gaining ground from Asian lows of 107.83 but it gave back some gains today by turning back to low 108 area into London open. Overall, risk-on conditions have supported, with USDJPY advances coming on the back of rallying equities. Last week’s 108.37 is a key next resistance level, and above there, market participants could turn their attention to the 50-day MA, which currently sits at 108.50. On the flipside, on the break of 20-day MA at 108.07, next Support comes at 107.79 (June 15 low).

* USDCAD rallied to July highs, topping at 1.3162 in early North American trade, and up from post-Monday close lows of 1.3111. General USD strength, coming as the market scales back its Fed easing expectations, has provided support to the pair. In addition, a lack of upside in WTI crude, despite geopolitical concerns, largely with Iran, has weighed on the CAD as well. The June 26 high of 1.3196 is the next resistance level if the asset moves above 1.3160, though buy-stops are expected over the 1.3200 level. On the flipside Support is set at 1.3120-1.3125 area. A move below the latter could open the doors below 1.3100 area.

Main Macro Events Today

* Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30) – Preliminary Composite PMIs for Eurozone and Germany are expected to fall in July, to 51.8 and 52.5 respectively, while the Manufacturing PMIs are forecasted at 48.0 and 45.4 respectively.

* Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing and Services PMIs are expected to decline in July, to 50.4 from 50.6 and 51.0 from 51.5 respectively.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 25th July 2019.




FX News Today

* Treasury yields came down from overnight highs and fell back to 2.04%, unchanged from yesterday’s close.

* Aussie and Australia’s benchmark bond yields hit record lows after RBA Governor Lowe signalled that he is prepared to cut rates again if needed and Asian stock markets moved cautiously higher.

* Earnings reports and expectations for further central bank support have helped to underpin equity markets this week, but while markets are looking for a clear easing signal if not a cut from the ECB today, Asian equity markets moved only cautiously higher.

* Worse than expected losses from Tesla and reports that North Korea resumed missile launches highlighted not only that geopolitical risks remain high, but also that overall valuations are already lofty.

* US futures are mixed, with NASDAQ futures underperforming and down -0.2%.

* USOIL spiked to $57.60 on another 10 million barrel draw-down but sank to $56 on weak global economic outlook on the back of the manufacturing PMI data.

* Euro touched its lowest since May 31 following the weak Eurozone PMIs during the London morning session, printing 1.1127.

* Gold continues to track sideways with Support at 1,420 and Resistance at 1427.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD touched its lowest since May 31, following the weak Eurozone PMIs during the London morning session. Euro weakness has been a feature this week, in anticipation of ECB meeting, where a shift to an easing bias is universally anticipated. Given the weak PMIs, there is a chance the Bank may even cut rates modestly, which would likely weigh further on EURUSD. Next support comes at the June low, of 1.1159 and the 2019 low of 1.1107 seen on May 23.

Main Macro Events Today

* German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – German IFO business confidence is expected to slip to 96.7, after it held steady the past 2 months around the 97 barrier.

* Event of the week – Interest rate Decision and Conference (EUR, GMT 11:45) –The ECB is meeting on July 25, – shortly after the confirmation of the new PM in London and ahead of the Fed, which is widely expected to cut rates again at the end of the month.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 30th July 2019.




FX News Today

* Treasury yields slip along with core EGBs after BoJ and looking to 25 bp Fed cut and dovish stance.

* BoJ kept policy on hold but promised to act aggressively with additional easing measures if its policy goals are threatened.

* European stock futures are marginally higher, alongside gains in US futures after a largely positive session for stocks in Asia.

* US-Sino trade talks resume today.

* In Europe, a no-deal Brexit scenario is looking increasingly certain as the new PM in London steps up the hostile rhetoric and focuses on selling no-deal at home, while showing no interest in re-opening the lines of communication with Brussels.

* GBP losses accelerated on no-deal Brexit risk; hit major trend lows vs USD and others.

* The WTI future lifted to USD 57.20 per barrel.

* German GfK consumer confidence fell back to 9.7 in the advance August reading. With no improvement in manufacturing the improvements on the German labour market are running out of steam and ultimately that will also impact consumption going down the line.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* USDJPY: The Yen has firmed moderately in the wake of the BoJ policy announcement. Market narratives have mostly taken the view that the central bank was a little less dovish than expected, especially with both the Fed and ECB heading to rate cuts. USDJPY drifted to near 108.50 from a 3-week high that was seen ahead of the data, following disappointing industrial production figures out of Japan, at 108.94. EURJPY and other Yen crosses saw a similar fall-from-highs price action. The BoJ kept its short-term interest rate target at -0.1% and its pledge to guide 10-year JGB yields around 0% while maintaining its asset buying programme. The central bank signalled its commitment to keep interest rates at current levels “for an extended period of time, at least through around spring 2020,” commenting that “the momentum for achieving 2% inflation is sustained, but lacks strength.” The forward guidance was pretty much unchanged from existing guidance, which seemed to cause a modicum of disappointment in forex markets, though JGB yields still dipped while the JPN225 closed with a 0.4% gain on the day. Overall, the balance of risks for USDJPY and EURJPY seem to the downside, with both the Fed and ECB having much more room to add monetary stimulus than in the case of the BoJ.

Main Macro Events Today

* Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 12:00) – The German HICP inflation is expected to slip back to 1.3% y/y for July after it was revised up to 1.5% y/y in June.

* 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.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 5th August 2019.




* Following the FOMC meeting last week, two interest rate decisions (RBA and RBNZ) are scheduled next week. An on-hold stance is expected from RBA and more easing by RBNZ. From an economic perspective, GDP releases are the highlights, while with the focus on geopolitical trade tensions, data releases are likely to be overlooked.

Monday – 05 August 2019

* Services PMI (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The UK Services PMI is expected to stay unchanged at 50.2, a three-month low and drop from May’s 51.0 reading.The indicator effectively signals stagnation, with the sector only expanding fractionally, and at risk of tipping into recession; a consequence of both Brexit-related uncertainty and geopolitical trade tensions.

* Non-Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The US Non-Manufacturing PMI is expected to rise to 55.5 in July from 55.1 in June and a 19-month low of 56.1 in March, versus a 13-year high of 60.8 in September. The available July sentiment surveys have partly reversed the June downdraft in sentiment, though we’ve seen divergent swings for some measures.

Tuesday – 06 August 2019

* Interest Rate Decision and Statement (AUD, GMT 04:30) – Reserve Bank of Australia is expected to keep rates unchanged at 1.00% (June and July saw the first back-to-back rate trimming since 2012). The latest data has strengthened the view that the RBA, after implementing back-to-back rate cuts, will be on hold for the foreseeable, albeit retaining a dovish policy stance.

* JOLTS Job Openings (USD, GMT 14:00) – JOLTS define Job Openings as all positions that have not been filled on the last business day of the month. June’s JOLTS job openings is expected to fall slightly at 7.268M, following the 7.32M in May.

Wednesday – 07 August 2019

* Interest Rate Decision and Press Conference (NZD, GMT 02:00-03:00) – The Reserve Bank of New Zealand is expected to proceed with a second rate cut this year. The consensus presents a 25bp rate cut.

* Ivey PMI (CAD, GMT 14:00) – A survey of purchasing managers, the Index provides an overview of the state of business conditions in the country. Canada’s July Ivey PMI is expected to improve 2.6 points to 55.00 after the decline seen in June. The data is supportive of the steady policy story, as the economy returns to potential growth contrasts with an outlook “clouded by persistent trade tensions.”

Thursday – 08 August 2019

* Gross Domestic Product (JPY, GMT 23:50) – Growth in Japan is expected to have decreased by 0.5% in the second quarter from the 0.6% in the first quarter, reflecting weaker exports due to cooling global demand and trade tensions.

Friday – 09 August 2019

* Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The GDP for the second quarter could be seen declining due to the renewed rise in no-deal Brexit risks which negatively impacted data releases, and the slump in the June manufacturing PMI which highlights the extent of the deterioration in sentiment. The preliminary release of UK Q2 GDP growth is expected at the 1.4% y/y figure from the 1.8%seen in the last quarter.

* Employment Change (CAD , GMT 12:30) – Employment change is seen spiking to 10.0k in the number of employed people in July, compared to the decline 2.2k in June. The unemployment rate is expected to remain at 5.5%. A possible lack in total jobs during July is unlikely to challenge the BoC’s steady-as-it-goes policy position.

* EURUSD printed 2-week highs of 1.1249, up from lows of 1.1170 yesterday. The latest trade was escalations between the US and China, have ramped up Fed easing speculation, with a September 25 bp rate cut fully priced into the market. This has given the Dollar a hard time of late, resulting in the DXY dropping from over 2-year highs last week, to 2-week lows on Monday. The Euro is currently over its 20-day moving average at 1.1185 for the first time in nearly a month, and now has sights set on the 50-day MA at 1.1235 and 200-day MA at 1.1295.

* USOIL is down near 6% versus last week’s peak.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 7th August 2019.




FX News Today

* RBNZ surprises markets with hefty 50 bps cut; official rate now at 1.00%.

* India’s RBI cut rates by 35 bps – more than expected; repo rate at 5.4%.

* Decisive action from central banks in New Zealand and India also fueled fresh speculation of deep cuts from the likes of Fed and ECB.

* New Zealand’s 10-year rate led a broad slide in yields across Asia.
The RBNZ surprised markets with a hefty 50 bp cut that left the official cash rate at a record low of 1.00% and will spark fresh speculation of deep cuts world-wide.

* The NZD dropped sharply as a result and AUD was also dragged lower as the 10-year rate dropped -8.3 bp, with traders expecting the RBA to follow.

* Still, pressure eased somewhat in stock markets, after China took steps to steady the Yuan yesterday.

* JPN225 is down -0.27%.

* US futures are in the red after a positive close on Wall Street yesterday and the WTI future is trading at just USD 53.66 per barrel.

* In Europe, German production numbers at the start of the session underpinned easing hopes.

* German industrial production slumped -1.5% m/m in June, with the May reading revised down to just 0.1% m/m.

* The German curve has already settled below zero and pressure on Draghi to not just cut rates but restart asset purchases is mounting.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* NZDUSD: The New Zealand Dollar over 2% in hitting its lowest level against the US Dollar since January 2016, at 0.6377, and trading at near seven-year lows in the case against the Yen. This followed a more aggressive than expected 50 bp rate cut by the RBNZ to an all-time low 1.00%, which was pinned on flagging growth conditions as a consequence of simmering trade tensions and a global economic slowdown.

* AUDUSD fell in sympathy, with the RBA, after cutting rates in June and July, having signalled yesterday that more rate cuts could be in the pipeline. The pair smashed through the early January flash-crash low on route to printing a 10-year nadir at 0.6677. AUDJPY also dove into 10-year low territory.

* USDJPY: The Yen lifted against the Dollar and Euro, though remained below highs seen earlier in the week. USDJPY posted a low at 105.93, extending the retreat from yesterday’s 107.09 high.

* EURUSD continued to orbit the 1.1200 level. Sterling came back under pressure after a positional-driven rally earlier in the week. Cable nudged back under 1.2150 after failing to sustain gains above 1.2200, while EURGBP lifted back above 0.9200, drawing back in on the 24-month high at 0.9249.

Main Macro Events Today

* Ivey PMI (CAD, GMT 14:00) – A survey of purchasing managers, the Index provides an overview of the state of business conditions in the country. Canada’s July Ivey PMI is expected to improve 2.6 points to 55.00 after the decline seen in June. The data is supportive of the steady policy story, as the economy returns to potential growth contrasts with an outlook “clouded by persistent trade tensions.”

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 8th August 2019.




FX News Today

* Markets remained choppy Wednesday amid heightened fears over the bearish signals from the drop in rates.

* Better than expected China trade numbers, which showed a rebound in exports helped to underpin sentiment after a slightly higher than anticipated Yuan fixing.

* Fears about the impact of the escalating trade conflict eased somewhat, also helped by news that Japan will allow some exports of semiconductor manufacturing material to South Korea, which suggests easing tensions between the two countries.

* Wall Street losses were pared and the NASDAQ recovered into the green. US futures are up 0.4-0.7%.

* Investors remain jumpy and markets volatile, however, while the inversion of the yield curve looks worrying and highlights the rise in recession fears.

* Oil remains sharply weaker on growth fears and widening supply-demand dynamics. It is currently trading at $52.70.

* The official fixing of the onshore Yuan today was at a new 10-year plus low against the Dollar.

* RBNZ Governor Orr also repeated that negative rates are a possibility, which comes a day after the central bank caught widespread attention by implementing its first 50 bp easing since the immediate aftermath of 9/11.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* YEN: The Yen has traded softer, concurrently with a tentative rebound in stock markets, which was seen on Wall Street into the close yesterday, and followed up with gains across Asia-Pacific bourses. USDJPY settled in the lower 106.00s, above the 7-month low seen yesterday at 105.49. AUDJPY, EURJPY and other Yen crosses also posted moderate gains as the Japanese currency saw some of its safe haven premium unwind. Better than expected China trade numbers and Japan and South Korea’s news helped buoy investor spirits, and while the official fixing of the onshore Yuan today was at a new 10-year plus low against the Dollar of 7.0039 (up from 6.9996 yesterday), a little firmer than markets had been anticipating.

Main Macro Events Today

* Jobless Claims (USD, GMT 12:20) – Initial jobless claims for the week of August 3 are estimated to fall to 214k, after rising to 215k in the week of July 27. Claims should average a cycle-low 212k in July, as seen last September, versus 222k in June and 217k in May. Claims drifted higher into June from tight levels through May, with a spike higher with the advent of the auto retooling season, but with an ensuing drop into mid-July with seasonal factor payback.

* Gross Domestic Product (JPY, GMT 23:50) – Growth in Japan is expected to have decreased by 0.5% in the second quarter from the 0.6% in the first quarter, reflecting weaker exports due to cooling global demand and trade tensions.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 12th August 2019.




* Following a week of aggressive global central bank easing, with the escalation of the US-China trade war that is looking to have turned into a currency war, markets might take a small breath in the week ahead. However, the markets expected to remain volatile as the week is packed of economic data releases.

Tuesday – 13 August 2019

* Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The final German HICP inflation for July expected to remain at 1.1% y/y after falling from 1.3% y/y in July’s preliminary release.

* Average Earnings & ILO Unemployment Rate (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The ILO unemployment rate (3-month) is expected to have remained at 3.8%, with average income falling 3.5% y/y in the three months to June in the ex-bonus figure, and to 3.1% in the in-bonus figure from 3.4% y/y in July.

* ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for August is projected at -22.3 from the -24.5 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though expected to improved slightly at -3.1 from -20.3.

* Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – US CPI is expected to rise a 0.2% headline in July with a 0.2% increase in core prices, following respective June readings of 0.1% and 0.3%. As-expected gains would result in a headline y/y gain of 1.6%, steady from 1.6% in June, while core prices should rise 2.1%, a steady pace from June. Overall, the inflation outlook remains benign, though with an updraft into the end of Q1 and early-Q2 from a petroleum price rebound that reversed course temporarily in May.

Wednesday – 14 August 2019

* Industrial Production and Retail Sales (CNY, GMT 02:00) – The Chinese Industrial Production growth is expected to have decreased at 5.8% y/y in July from 6.3% y/y last month. A weak reading is also expected in Retail Sales figure at 8.6% from 9.8%.

* Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 06:00-09:00) – German Preliminary Q2 results are expected to have stood at 0.4% q/q. Eurozone prelim. Q2 GDP growth expected to be confirmed at 0.2% q/q and 1.1% y/y.

* Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The UK July CPI expected to meet once again the expectations at 2.0% y/y, which was unchanged from the May rate. Core inflation should remain to 1.8% y/y. The data fits BoE projections, and shows that perky wage inflation hasn’t translated into higher headline rates yet.

Thursday – 15 August 2019

* Employment Data (AUD, GMT 01:30) – While the Unemployment Rate is expected to have remained at 5.2% in July, employment change is expected to have increased to 26.8K from 0.5K last month.

* Retail Sales (GBP, GMT 08:30) – UK Retail Sales are expected to have declined to -1.4%m/m in July following a 1.0% m/m contraction in June. In the y/y comparison, sales should rise 4.0% while the ex-fuel is projected at 2.7% y/y from 3.6% y/y.

* Retail Sales and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – A 0.3% July retail sales headline is anticipated with a 0.5% increase for the ex-autos figure, following 0.4% June gains for both measures. Gasoline prices should provide a boost to retail activity given an estimated 1.7% gain for the CPI gasoline figure, though unit vehicle sales fell to a 16.8 mln pace in July from a 17.1 mln clip in June. Real consumer spending is expected to grow at a 2.9% rate in Q3, following the 4.3% Q2 clip.

* Philadelphia Fed Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Philly Fed index is seen falling to 9.0 from a 1-year high of 21.8 in July, versus a 33-month low of -4.1 in February. The producer sentiment readings all moderated through the turn of the year from elevated levels in response to global growth concerns, falling petroleum prices, fears about the ongoing trade war, and the partial government shutdown.

Friday – 16 August 2019

* Housing Data and Building Permits (USD, GMT 12:30) – Housing starts should rise to a 1.260 mln pace in July, after a dip to 1.253 mln in July. Permits are expected to improve to 1.270 mln in July, after falling to 1.232 mln in June. Overall, starts and permits should show a firm path into Q3, and the Q3 averages are expected of 1.263 mln for starts and 1.295 mln for permits.

* Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – The preliminary August Michigan sentiment reading is forecast at 97.5, up from the final July sentiment at 98.4.

FX News Today

* RISK OFF

* 10-year Treasury yields are down -0.8 bp at 1.637%, JGB yields fell back -1.4 bp to -0.341% after falling to the lowest level since 2016 during the course of the session.

* Risk Aversion continued to dominate during the Asian session and stock markets headed south after the S&P fell more than 1.5% on Monday.

* Bond markets remained supported as investors continue to bet on further central bank action with trade concerns, Brexit risks and political unrest in Hong Kong adding to the risk off backdrop. U.S. 30-year rates are nearing all time lows with Argentina default risks only boosting the flight to quality that is seeing a marked flattening of the curve.

* In Asia escalating political protests in Hong Kong remain in focus and Australia’s 10-year bond yield opened at a fresh all time low. China’s 10-year rate meanwhile fell below 3% for the first time since 2016 before steadying slightly above the 3% mark.

* GOLD breaches $1520.00 (highest since April 2103) and USOil meanwhile is trading at USD 54.81 per barrel.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* USD: The The dollar has traded moderately firmer against most of the other main currencies outside the case against the Australian dollar, which has modestly outperformed so far today. The yen softened, correcting some of the recent safe-haven driven gains, despite a tumble on Wall Street yesterday and across Asian equity bourses today, though the Japanese currency has lifted out of its lows into the London interbank open. There is plenty on the worry list, including disruptive pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong and a crash in Argentina’s peso following a poor performance of market-friendly Argentine President Macri in presidential primaries. Singapore also made a substantial cut to its GDP forecast for 2019 (to between 0% and 1%, down from 1.5%-2.5%), citing the deteriorating global conditions, with the Hong Kong situation, along with the U.S.-China and South Korea-Japan trade wars, and Brexit, all getting a mention. The U.S. yield curve is now at its lowest level since 2007, which is seen by many as portending recession, or at least a significant risk of recession. GS analysts also said that the U.S.-China trade war will have a bigger detrimental impact on the U.S. economy than it previously thought. A Reuters poll, meanwhile, found a new high in the probability being ascribed by analysts for there being a no-deal Brexit, which is now pegged at 35%, up from 30% in the previous survey. Amid all this, the PBoC set the yuan at a new near 11-year low against the dollar at the day’s midpoint fixing, at 7.0326, versus 7.0211 yesterday. Given the risk-on vibe, the yen looks likely to find fresh demand in London, with shorts of AUD-JPY and GBP-JPY likely

Main Macro Events Today

* Average Earnings & ILO Unemployment Rate (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The ILO unemployment rate (3-month) is expected to have remained at 3.8%, with average income falling 3.5% y/y in the three months to June in the ex-bonus figure, and to 3.1% in the in-bonus figure from 3.4% y/y in July.

* ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for August is projected at -22.3 from the -24.5 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though expected to improved slightly at -3.1 from -20.3.

* Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – US CPI is expected to rise a 0.2% headline in July with a 0.2% increase in core prices, following respective June readings of 0.1% and 0.3%. As-expected gains would result in a headline y/y gain of 1.6%, steady from 1.6% in June, while core prices should rise 2.1%, a steady pace from June. Overall, the inflation outlook remains benign, though with an updraft into the end of Q1 and early-Q2 from a petroleum price rebound that reversed course temporarily in May.

Events to Look Out for This Week.




Trade worries remain and are expected to keep flip-flopping between risk-off and risk-back-on sentiment. Hopes for more central bank stimulus vies with fears that a number of major economies are simultaneously heading for recession, with a number of developing-world economies with high Dollar debt levels particularly exposed to the shifting financial cycle. Given these fears, further conciliatory remarks are likely from both China and the US with regard to their trade spat. Nevertheless, next week the economic calendar also focuses on the PMI releases globally.

Monday – 19 August 2019

* Consumer Price Index and Core (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI for July is expected to hold at 1.1%y/y in the final July reading from 1.3%y/y in June. Energy price inflation was clearly largely to blame and the core rate fell back to just 0.9%y/y from 1.1%y/y in the previous month. The core is anticipated to remain unchanged as well. With growth slowing down and the improvement on the labour market starting to fizzle out, chances are that inflation will continue to undershoot the ECB’s target range, thus adding to arguments for a comprehensive easing package in September.


Tuesday – 20 August 2019

* Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30)– The RBA left rates on hold in its last meeting, after back-to-back rate cuts in June and July, which put the cash rate at a record low of 1.00%, while Governor Lowe said that more easing measures could be needed. Minutes are expected to shed further light regarding future easing stance.

* Manufacturing Sales (CAD, GMT 12:30)[/B]– Manufacturing sales are anticipated to grow 2.0% in June after a 1.6% rebound in shipment values was revealed during May and following a 0.4% decline in April. The surge in transport equipment sales is consistent with the improving economy and as such fits with the BoC’s overall view that the economy is improving after temporary weakness in Q4/Q1.


Wednesday – 21 August 2019

* Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada’s CPI did not challenge the outlook for steady BoC policy this year. CPI slowed to a 2.0% y/y pace in June from the lofty 2.4% y/y clip in May. Inflation remains around the 2 percent target, with some recent upward pressure from higher food and automobile prices. Core measures of inflation are also close to 2 percent. Even though CPI inflation will likely dip this year because of the dynamics of gasoline prices and some other temporary factors, the annual and monthly numbers for July are expected to remain steady. As slack in the economy is absorbed and these temporary effects wane, inflation is expected to return sustainably to 2 percent by mid-2020.

*FOMC Minutes (USD, GMT 18:00) – The FOMC minutes, similar to the ECB Reports, provide an assessment as regards the views of the Fed’s policymakers about the interest-setter’s future stance and are usually a cause for FX turbulence.

Thursday – 22 August 2019

* Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 1

*Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30-08:00) – July PMI readings highlighted manufacturing weakness. This picture is likely to be seen again in the preliminary readings for August, as Manufacturing PMI has been forecast at 46.3 from 46.5 last month, still down from 47.6 in June, and indicates a deepening recession in a sector that has been hit very hard by global trade tensions and no-deal Brexit risks. Meanwhile Services PMI is expected to fall to 52.7 from 53.2.

*Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing are expected to grow in August, to 51.0 from 50.4, as Services PMIs are likely to fall to 51.7 from 53.

*New Zealand Retail Sales (NZD, GMT 22:45) – Usually considered an index of consumer confidence and overall consumption in the economy, higher retail sales point to higher consumption and hence higher economic growth which is good for the currency.

Friday- 23 August 2019

* Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 2

*Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales are expected to have decreased in Canada, with consensus forecasts suggesting a -0.5% m/m decline should be registered in June and an unchanged ex-autos component at 0.3%. In May, Retail sales were disappointing, falling 0.1% for total sales and declining 0.3% for the ex-autos component. The decline in sales was driven by a 2.0% tumble in food and beverage stores. The report casts some doubt on the resiliency of the consumer sector to the ongoing parade of worrisome geopolitical and trade developments.

* The US administration denied plans to cut payroll taxes to support growth and Germany’s reported contingency plan for a fiscal package in case of a deep recession, are clearly not the central scenario for now.

* The 10-year rate is down 1.5 bp at 1.591%, JGB yields dipped -0.1 bp to -0.241%.

* US President Trump called on the Fed to cut rates by “at least 100 basis points“. Fed’s Rosengren meanwhile pushed back against further rate cuts, saying that he is not convinced that slowing trade and global growth will significantly dent the economy.

* Comments from US Commerce Secretary Ross that the US will delay restrictions imposed on some of Huawei’s business operations helped to underpin sentiment, although.

* RBA Minutes: The minutes to the early-August RBA policy meeting were released without surprises, affirming its wait-and-see-easing-bias stance while repeating its view that the weaker currency will help exports and tourism.

* Italian BTPs are underperforming this morning, ahead of PM Conte’s showdown in the Senate, although it seems Salvini’s attempt at a power grab may be backfiring as his coalition partner is trying to form an alliance with opposition parties.

* Topix and Nikkei are currently up 0.7% and 0.5% respectively. The Hang Seng is up 0.09% but the Shanghai Comp down 0.01%.

* European stock futures are slightly higher, as are US futures after a largely positive session in Asia.

* The WTI future is trading at USD 56.30 per barrel.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* The Australian dollar has traded firmer and, to a lesser extent, the New Zealand buck. AUDUSD printed a 5-day high, at 0.6795, as did AUDJPY, at 72.36. Among the other main currencies, there has remained a lack of directional impulse. EURUSD has remained settled in the upper 1.1000s, holding below 1.1100, and USDJPY has become anchored around 106.50. The Dollar hasn’t been much affected by US President Trump’s call for the Fed to cut rates by “at least 100 basis points”. Overall investor sentiment is much less frayed that it was last week, with expectations for stimulus in major economies, along with Trump’s partial climbdown in his trade war with China, assuaging recession fears.

Main Macro Events Today

* Manufacturing Sales (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Manufacturing sales are anticipated to grow 2.0% in June after a 1.6% rebound in shipment values was revealed during May and following a 0.4% decline in April. The surge in transport equipment sales is consistent with the improving economy and as such fits with the BoC’s overall view that the economy is improving after temporary weakness in Q4/Q1.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 21st August 2019.




FX News Today

* Wall Street suffered another bout of weakness inspired by declines in Treasury yields.

* The USA500 lost near 0.8% after a late selloff, with the USA30 off 0.66%, ending the recent run of gains.

* Stocks traded mixed in Asia, while European as well as US futures are posting slight gains ahead of today’s Fed minutes and Powell’s speech at the Jackson Hole symposium later in the week.

* A drop in European rates spilled over to Treasuries, with the long end outperforming. That compressed the yield curve again, one of the main factors behind last Wednesday’s plunge on Wall Street.

* The markets will remain focused on the Fed today with the release of the minutes from July 30, 31 FOMC with hopes for dovish signals. Nearly 70 bps in easing is expected over the rest of the year.

* Top negotiators from Japan and the US will meet this week to try and narrow the gaps in ongoing trade talks, but hopes that there will be substantial progress on the key issues agriculture and automobiles seem to be fading.

* Italian BTPs outperformed yesterday on hopes that new elections can be avoided and that an alternative coalition government can be found to bring at least the 2020 budget underway helped to underpin Italian assets on Tuesday and at least so far there is no sign of contagion risks.

* Germany meanwhile will sell its first 30-year Bund with a zero coupon, and yields in today’s auction could turn negative for the first time.

* The AUD remained underpinned by upbeat comments from the RBA on the growth outlook in yesterday’s minutes.

* The WTI future is trading at USD 56.36 per barrel.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD bounced to 1.1100 highs on a short covering move, after failing to make any downside progress under Friday’s over 2-week low of 1.1066, along with another Treasury yield lurch lower. The pairing looks to be consolidating losses seen over the past week or so, and with sell-stops now said to be building around the 1.1050 level, a downside break is looking more likely. Not as dovish as expected FOMC minutes on Wednesday could save Euro bulls for now, though with the ECB primed to ease further, Germany poised for fiscal stimulus, the unknown impact of Brexit, and the political crisis in Italy, EURUSD looks set to test the 27-month low of 1.1027 seen on August 1.

* USDCAD rallied yesterday at 1.3344 a 2-month high, as WTI crude fell $1/bbl to $55.20, and as Canada manufacturing data came in on the soft side. USDCAD later pulled back toward 1.3310 as oil recovered some lost ground. The 200-day MA at 1.3305 becomes support now, after closing above the level on Monday. Resistance is the June 19 top of 1.3383.

Main Macro Events Today

* Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada’s CPI did not challenge the outlook for steady BoC policy this year. CPI slowed to a 2.0% y/y pace in June from the lofty 2.4% y/y clip in May. Inflation remains around the 2 percent target, with some recent upward pressure from higher food and automobile prices. Core measures of inflation are also close to 2 percent. Even though CPI inflation will likely dip this year because of the dynamics of gasoline prices and some other temporary factors, the annual and monthly numbers for July are expected to remain steady. As slack in the economy is absorbed and these temporary effects wane, inflation is expected to return sustainably to 2 percent by mid-2020.

* FOMC Minutes (USD, GMT 18:00) – The FOMC minutes, similar to the ECB Reports, provide an assessment as regards the views of the Fed’s policymakers about the interest-setter’s future stance and are usually a cause for FX turbulence.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd August 2019.




FX News Today

* FOMC minutes did not provide strong clues on the direction of rates.

* However, the lack of a signal that the Fed’s July rate cut was the start of an easing cycle was enough to eventually weigh on Treasuries.

* Asian stock markets struggled as investors continued to digest the implications of yesterday’s Fed minutes and trading conditions remained quieter than usual ahead of Powell’s speech at Jackson Hole tomorrow.

* Yields closed at their highs of the session after holding cheap levels all session. The curve narrowed below 1 bp as the short end underperformed.

* US President Trump continued to criticize the Fed Chairman, while suggesting the US may strike a deal on trade, but that didn’t prevent US futures from heading south overnight.

* Topix and Nikkei are currently down -0.13% and -0.09% respectively, despite improvements in PMI readings that were counterbalanced by an as expected decline in the All Industry Index.

* The WTI future meanwhile fell back to $55.45 per barrel.

* Brexit: Merkel gives Johnson 30 days to solve Backstop conundrum.

* Johnson is today expected in Paris, where the tone is likely to be harsher than in Berlin, although both Merkel and Macron have stressed that they are ready for a no-deal Brexit if there is no agreement.

* The UK curve remains inverted out to the 10-year area.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

*USDJPY printed a two-day low, at 106.28.The biggest mover, not surprisingly, has been AUDJPY, a forex market barometer of shifting risk-appetite patterns in global markets. The cross was showing a 0.5% loss heading into the London interbank open, and was testing one-week lows at 71.90. Next Support stands at 71.76 and 71.60. Resistance is at the pivot 72.20 level.

Main Macro Events Today

* Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 1

* Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30-08:00) – July PMI readings highlighted manufacturing weakness. This picture is likely to be seen again in the preliminary readings for August, as Manufacturing PMI has been forecast at 46.3 from 46.5 last month, still down from 47.6 in June, and indicates a deepening recession in a sector that has been hit very hard by global trade tensions and no-deal Brexit risks. Meanwhile, Services PMI is expected to fall to 52.7 from 53.2.

* Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing is expected to grow in August, to 51.0 from 50.4, as Services PMI is likely to fall to 51.7 from 53.

* New Zealand Retail Sales (NZD, GMT 22:45) – Usually considered an index of consumer confidence and overall consumption in the economy, higher retail sales point to higher consumption and hence higher economic growth which is good for the currency.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd August 2019.




FX News Today

* A confluence of factors whipped the markets around Thursday heading into the Jackson Hole Symposium and Chair Powell’s comments Friday at 10 ET.

* Hawkish remarks from George (she dissented against the July easing) and Harker (who votes in 2020) weighed on Treasuries and erased early gains from Wall Street.

* Minutes from both Fed and ECB meetings were not quite the all out dovish signal that some had been hoping for and comments from Fed members yesterday also showed a degree of caution with regard to further easing measures.

* The curve in the US steepened again after inverting briefly overnight, the curve flattened and inverted further in Japan.

* Stock markets across Asia moved mostly higher although gains remained contained by caution.

* New Zealand’s central bank governor said he could afford to wait before declining on additional easing measures.

* Onshore Yuan set at its weakest for 11 years.

* Japanese core consumer inflation at a 2-year low in July.

* Meanwhile lingering geopolitical trade tensions and political jitters in Hong Kong, Italy and the UK add to an uncertain backdrop. US futures are also cautiously moving higher.

* The WTI future is trading at USD 55.37 per barrel.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

*EURUSD returned to 3-week lows of 1.1064 today, after rallying to session highs of 1.1099 following the sub-50 US manufacturing PMI. Negative European yields appear to be taking their toll on the currency, keeping the Dollar in demand in place for relatively high yielding US Treasuries. This has likely been a major factor keeping EURUSD under pressure, especially ahead of likely ECB easing in September, and perceptions that the Fed will not be as aggressive in easing as previously thought. Key EURUSD level is the 27-month low of 1.1027 seen on August 1.

*USDJPY rallied to 106.64 highs. The risk-sensitive pairing can be expected to consolidate into today’s much anticipated speech from Fed chair Powell, from Jackson Hole.

*GBPUSD: Sterling had its best single day rally since March 13 against the Dollar. Cable’s high was 1.2273, which is the loftiest level seen since late July. The gains were sparked by comments made by German’s Merkel, who indicated that a solution to the Irish border backstop conundrum is doable by the October-31 Brexit deadline. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson followed this up by saying at his joint press conference with France’s Macron that he was encouraged by his talks in Berlin yesterday, and that a deal, he thinks, can be done ahead of October 31. Macron, said, however, that while he has always respected the UK’s decision to leave the EU, the European project has to be protected, to which the Irish backstop remains an important part of ensuring this. Merkel’s remarks were little more than rhetorical platitudes, though enough to trigger a short squeeze in a heavy shorted currency.


Main Macro Events Today

* Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 2

* Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales are expected to have decreased in Canada, with consensus forecasts suggesting a -0.5% m/m decline should be registered in June and an unchanged ex-autos component at 0.3%. In May, Retail sales were disappointing, falling 0.1% for total sales and declining 0.3% for the ex-autos component. The decline in sales was driven by a 2.0% tumble in food and beverage stores. The report casts some doubt on the resiliency of the consumer sector to the ongoing parade of worrisome geopolitical and trade developments.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 26th August 2019.




* As Jackson Hole Symposium winds down, lingering geopolitical trade tensions and political jitters in Hong Kong, Italy and the UK remain on the table to add further to an uncertain backdrop and to weigh on sentiment. From the data perspective, Thursday and Friday are the most data-heavy days with US GDP and Durable Goods, and Inflation releases from Europe and Tokyo.

The Ifo services reading already fell back 10 points this year to 17.7 in July from 27.8 in December last year. Trade and construction sectors are clearly less optimistic than at the end of 2018.

Meanwhile the Q2 release is expected to be released higher at 0.7% q/q from 0.4% gain in Q1 , due to the strong showing from net exports.The monthly trade report revealed a 14.7% gain in export volumes (q/q, saar) following the 4.1% drop reported in the Q1 GDP report.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 27th August 2019.




FX News Today

* It was another 180 for Wall Street as stocks rebounded with broad based gains after Friday’s 2%+ plunge.

* Trade talk continued to dominate the market narrative.

* President Trump turned more positive on the prospect of a trade deal with China and investors in Japan were relieved by comments that the US won’t immediately impose tariffs on car imports from Japan.

* JPN225 gained 1.1% and CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp rose 1.8% and 1.6% amid trade talks hopes and as China’s central bank lowered the Yuan midpoint to a new 11 1/2 year low, but not as low as anticipated.

* The Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam said her government is able to handle ongoing protests without assistance from Chinese forces.

* The WTI future is trading at $53.86 per barrel

* GER30 futures are struggling for direction, US futures are heading south and UK100 futures are also firmly in the red after returning from yesterday’s holiday.

* German Q2 GDP confirmed at -0.1% q/q, as expected, investment fell -0.1%. The main drag, however, not surprisingly came from net exports as exports fell -1.3% q/q.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD fell from overnight highs of 1.1163, with the bulk of losses coming following weaker German Ifo data (weakest since 2012). The pairing opened the NY session near 1.1120, later easing to a 1.1097 base and it is consolidating at that point since then. The poor EU growth outlook, the upcoming Brexit deadline, trade angst, and ECB easing potential should continue to conspire against the Euro going forward. Support is at Friday’s near one-month low of 1.1052, with Resistance near 1.1160.

* USDJPY put in an impressive recovery, topping at 106.40 yesterday. Now the Yen has settled lower at 105.70 level, into the London interbank open, with a 0.4% gain versus the Dollar, and a 0.6% rise against the Australian Dollar, which has been the underperformer of the main currency pack. The flight-to-safety dynamic, while modest, has been concomitant with a dip in USA500 futures, and has come despite firmer stock markets in Asia. At prevailing levels the USDJPY is sitting at about the halfway point of the range that was seen on Friday and yesterday.

Main Macro Events Today

* CB Consumer Confidence (USD, GMT 14:00) – The Consumer confidence is expected to ease to 133.0 in August from an 8-month high of 135.7 in July. We see a 169.2 current conditions reading, versus 170.9 in July. The expectations index should fall to 1008.8 in June from 112.2, versus an 18-year high of 115.1 in October. Overall, confidence measures remain historically high.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 28th August 2019.




FX News Today

* Trade developments remained the centre of attention.

* A Bloomberg report suggested that after a weekend of confusing signals only a few negotiators in Beijing expect that a deal with the US will be possible ahead of the 2020 election in the US election, partly because there are concerns that any deal signed now may eventually be broken by Trump.

* With hopes of a deal dampened again, Asian stocks drifted.

* Concern that the gaze of the US will also focus on imports from Japan and the EU again continue to linger and central banks may not be quite as eager to inject more stimulus as markets are.

* JPN225 managed marginal gains of 0.16%, the Hang Seng rose 0.05%, but CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp lost -0.28% and 0.24% respectively.

* China announced measures to help boost consumption and flagged the possible removal of restrictions on car purchases, but that wasn’t enough to prevent Chinese markets from slipping.

* Norwegian Oil Fund planning to shift up to EUR 100 bln out of European stocks. The influential fund said it wants to reduce the current share of European stocks, which is at around 30%, after being scaled back previously. In the future, the U.S. share, which is already higher, will be stocked up.

* The WTI future is trading at USD 55.54 per barrel.

* German import price inflation fell further into negative territory.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* GBPUSD turned higher, printing near 1-month highs of 1.2310, as markets downplay the potential for a no-deal Brexit. The Brexit battle will commence next Tuesday, when parliament reopens after the summer recess. Given the level of support in parliament for ruling out the no-deal option, including some members from the government’s own Conservative Party, there is a reasonable chance that no-to-no-deal members will succeed. If a no-deal Brexit is legislated off the table, this would increase the odds of there being an extension, which in turn would put Prime Minister Johnson, having promised to deliver Brexit on October 31 in a difficult position.

* USDCAD moved mildly higher even as crude oil prices firmed. Perkier oil prices provided some support to the CAD in London morning trade. USDCAD closed above its 20-day MA, which is seen as a fresh bullish development. The level (1.3266) now becomes Support, with Resistance at 1.3315 and 1.3342, the August peak.

Main Macro Events Today

* German GfK consumer confidence held steady at 9.7% y/y in the advance September reading, unchanged from the previous month. The full breakdown, which is only available until August, also showed an improvement in the willingness to buy, while saving becomes even more unpopular in the light of falling interest rates. So far then consumption seems to be holding up, but with the labour market starting to be affected by the contraction in manufacturing it seems only a matter of time until consumption trends also slow.

* US Calendar is light, and has mortgage and oil inventory data, 2-year and 5-year auctions.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 29th August 2019.




FX News Today

* Bunds cautious after hawkish comments from Nowotny, who said the ECB should be prepared to disappoint markets sometimes.

* BTPs are rallying after confirmation that acting PM Conte will get a second chance, this time backed by a coalition of PD and Five Star Movement.

* Stock markets remained cautious amid the lack of firm news on the US-Sino trade front and waiting to see what impact the latest tariffs will have and what global central banks are doing, with further easing measures expected to be in the pipeline as trade tensions hit the world growth outlook.

* US Secretary Steven Mnuchin said US trade officials expect Chinese negotiators to visit Washington, but would confirm whether a previously planned meeting in September will take place.

* European and US futures are in the red: In Europe Brexit jitters and the increased risk of a no-deal scenario cloud over the outlook after PM Johnson moved to suspend parliament for a large part of the remaining time until the October 31 Brexit date.

* Oil prices slipped on growth worries, despite signs that OPEC supply cuts are curtailing US inventories.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* USDJPY recovered from opening lows of 105.65, managing to rally to 105.95 after Wall Street turned higher. Treasury yields remain lower however, acting to limit the pairings upside potential. Bigger picture, the risk-sensitive USD-JPY may still have room to run lower, as flare ups in the U.S./China trade war are likely to continue. There is little sign of progress, or even talks under way, as additional tariffs on Chinese goods are set to kick in on Sunday. Monday’s 33-month low of 104.45 is the next downside target.

* USOIL rallied to $56.70 from $56.35 following the EIA inventory data which showed a 10.0 mln bbl fall in crude stocks. The street had been expecting a 2.0 mln bbl decrease, though the API reported an 11.1 mln bbl draw after the close on Tuesday. Meanwhile, gasoline supplies, seen down 0.5 mln bbls actually fell 2.1 bbls, while distillate stocks were down 2.1 mln bbls, versus expectations for a 1.5 mln bbl fall.

Main Macro Events Today

* Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 12:00) – The German HICP inflation has jumped to 1.3% y/y for August after it was revised down to 1.1% y/y in July.

* US Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – The preliminary Q2 GDP growth is expected to trim to 1.9% from 2.1%, with a $6 bln hike in consumption that accompanies a $2 bln boost for nonresidential investment. A downward revision is expected of -$5 bln for inventories, -$4 bln for exports, -$3 bln for imports, -$8 bln revision for public construction, -$2 bln residential investment, and -$1 bln for equipment spending.

* Tokyo CPI and Production Data (JPY, GMT 23:30) – The country’s main leading indicator of inflation is expected to have slip at 0.7% y/y core in August, and at 0.8% y/y ex Fresh Food. Industrial Production should post a 0.3% grow m/m in July, compared to -3.3% in June.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 30th August 2019.




FX News Today

* News that the Bank of Japan cut purchases in its regular operations added to pressure on JGBs, but bond markets in general were pressured as risk appetite returned.

* Hopes of US-Sino trade talks continued to underpin risk appetite. Wall Street closed higher yesterday, while optimism continued to underpin markets across Asia, which are set to end a difficult month on a high note.

* President Trump said some trade discussion were taking place with more talks scheduled and China’s commerce ministry signalled it won’t retaliate on new US tariffs for now, adding that a further escalation is not helpful and that it was more important to discuss a cancellation of tariff increases.

* ECB’s Knot meanwhile questioned the necessity for a restart of asset purchases late yesterday, which suggests the risk of disappointment for markets, who have been pricing in a very comprehensive easing package for the September meeting.

* The focus is now turning to important data releases over the weekend, including China’s official manufacturing survey.

* European stock futures are also moving higher, although US futures are struggling to hold earlier gains.

* The WTI future is trading at USD 56.51 per barrel.

* AUD and NZD both saw weaker building approvals data reported, AUD especially at 9.7% drop.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD traded to near one-month lows, bottoming at 1.1042, down from earlier session highs of 1.1092. The pair is now within striking distance of the 27-month low of 1.1027 seen on August 1. General Dollar strength has been a driver through the session, with the positive trade news supporting. In addition, the USD’s yield advantage over largely negative yielding EGBs should continue to weigh on EURUSD going forward. A break through the key 1.1000 psych level will shift overall market sentiment, though there has been some talk of barrier options at the level, which will initially at least, likely be defended.

Main Macro Events Today

* Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area flash CPI for August is expected to rise slightly, at 1.1% y/y from 1.0% y/y last month. Eurozone Unemployment rate is anticipated steady at 7.5%.

* Gross Domestic Product (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada’s economy remained sluggish in Q1, with real GDP rising just 0.4% (q/q, saar) after a 0.3% gain in Q4 (revised from 0.4%). The Q1 growth rate was shy of expectations, but it was far from a shocking result as tepid activity was projected as the economy continued to recover from the oil price shock last year. Meanwhile the Q2 release is expected to be released higher at 0.7% q/q from 0.4% gain in Q1 , due to the strong showing from net exports.The monthly trade report revealed a 14.7% gain in export volumes (q/q, saar) following the 4.1% drop reported in the Q1 GDP report.

Date : 2nd September 2019.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 2nd September 2019.




* The Economic calendar is packed with the usual start-of-the-month releases on trade, manufacturing, and Jobs. Other than the RBA and BoC meetings next week and the trade war development, Brexit drama will remain the hot topic for markets as Parliament suspension generated a veritable political storm given the length and timing of it, as it is the longest in duration since 1945.

Monday – 02 September 2019

* Caixin Manufacturing PMI (CNY, GMT 01:45) – The Caixin manufacturing PMI acts as a leading indicator for the whole Chinese economy. The reading for August is expected to hold below the neutral zone, at 49.8 from 49.9 last month.

* Manufacturing PMI (GBP & EUR, GMT 08:30) – In August, the German and UK PMI are expected to remain unchanged in the negative region, 43.6 and 48.0 respectively.

Tuesday – 03 September 2019

* Retail Sales (AUD, GMT 01:30) –Australian July Retail Sales data are projected to rise by 0.3% m/m from 0.4% m/m in June.

* Interest Rate Decision and Statement (AUD, GMT 04:30) – In July, RBA Governor Lowe’s statement, while justifying the easing in policy, contained some cautiously upbeat observations, noting that “a lift in wages growth” is expected in the private sector, that inflation is anticipated to pick up (the central scenario being for underlying inflation to be around 2% in 2020 and a little higher after that), and that “tentative signs” of stabilization are being seen in Sydney and Melbourne housing markets. After implementing back-to-back rate cuts in June and July, RBA will be on hold for the foreseeable, albeit retaining a dovish policy stance.

* ECB’s Nominated President Lagarde speech (EUR, GMT 07:00)

* ISM Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM index is expected to rise to 51.4 in August from 51.2 in July, compared to a 14-year high of 61.4 in August of last year.

Wednesday – 04 September 2019

* Gross Domestic Product (AUD, GMT 01:30) – Australia’s economic growth is likely to remain soft in Q2 2019, with GDP rising by 0.5% q/q, including consumption growth of 0.4% up from 0.3% in the March quarter.

* Trade Balance (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada could ran to a C$0.3 bln trade deficit in July, from the C$0.1 bln trade surplus in June which contrasted with projections for a return to a mild shortfall.

* Interest Rate Decision and Statement (CAD, GMT 14:00) – Last time, BoC reaffirmed its commitment to steady policy, as an economy returning to potential growth contrasts with an outlook “clouded by persistent trade tensions.”. The expectations remain for no change of the policy outlook from the BoC through year-end, with the next move expected to be a modest rate hike in late 2020.

Thursday – 05 September 2019

* ADP Employment Change (USD, GMT 12:15) – Employment change is seen falling short from July’s outcome (156K) to 140k in the number of employed people in August.

* Non-Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The US Non-Manufacturing PMI is expected to rise to 54.1 in August from 53.7 in July and a 19-month low of 56.1 in March, versus a 13-year high of 60.8 in September. A stabilization in sentiment is seen through the first half of 2019 after a winter drop, and we’ve see a renewed down-tilt into Q3, though most sentiment measures remain in expansion territory, and the early-August sentiment measures were firm..

Friday – 06 September 2019

* UK court hearing on forcing no-deal Brexit

* NFP and Labour Market Data (USD, GMT 12:30) – A 155k August nonfarm payroll rise has been estimated, following a 164k increase in July. The unemployment rate should tick down to 3.6% after an uptick to 3.7% in June that was sustained in July, and hours-worked are estimated to rise 0.3%. Average hourly earnings should rise 0.3% m/m.

* Employment Change (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Employment change is seen spiking to 12.5k in the number of employed people in August, compared to the decline 24.2.2k in July. The unemployment rate is expected to remain at 3.7%.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 3rd Sepember 2019.




FX News Today

* Asian stocks traded mixed in a thin trade.

* The RBA left the cash rate at a record low 1.00%, as anticipated, though the statement pointed to tentative signs of improvement in the Australian economy’s fortunes, which helped spark about a 30 pip rebound in the Aussie.

* A Bloomberg reporter highlighted the difficulties in arranging the talks that are supposed to restart this week after the US rejected Beijing’s request to delay the start of tariffs that came into effect over the weekend.

* Against that background stock markets struggling to make headway JPN225 still managed gains of 0.1% respectively, but the Hang Seng declined -0.24%.

* US futures are equally heading south with the USA100 leading the way.

* Argentina imposed capital controls at the start of the month.

* Brexit: The anti-no-deal opposition are preparing a vote today to take control of the parliamentary timetable, which would pave the way for them to stage a vote the following day, Wednesday, on proposed legislation that would stop a no-deal Brexit. Prime Minister Johnson has made it clear that he will call a general election if such legislation were passed, which, according to reports, would be staged on October 14.

* In Europe, BTPs continue to outperform as political jitters abate with Salvini sidelined for now.

* GER30 futures recovered earlier losses and are posting slight gains, while the UK100 is outperforming, underpinned by a weaker Pound.

* The WTI future is trading at USD 54.85 per barrel.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* JPY: The Yen printed respective 29-month and 10-year lows versus the Euro and Australian Dollar at the open of trading in Asia-Pacific session, then rebounding some before settling. USDJPY is near net unchanged of the day at 106.15 after carving out a two-session low at the open in Asia, at 105.93.

* GBP: Sterling racked up losses of nearly 1% against the Dollar, Euro and Yen, as of levels prevailing at the London fixing. Cable broke the 3-week low and the round 1.2000 area and posted a 1.1992 low, for the first time since January 2017, which, aside from a broadly firmer Dollar, has been a consequence of Pound underperformance.

* EUR: EURUSD concurrently ebbed to a new 28-month low at 1.0930 in what is now the pair’s seventh consecutive day of printing lower lows. The pairing is down by 1.3% from week-ago levels.

* CAD: The USD also managed to touch a two-and-a-half month peak against the Canadian Dollar in a move exaggerated in magnitude by the unusual thinness of the USDCAD market. The pair’s high was printed at 1.3361 yesterday after buy-stop orders were tripped during the London morning session. The pairing subsequently ebbed back to around 1.3330.

Main Macro Events Today

* ECB’s Nominated President Lagarde speech (EUR, GMT 07:00)

* ISM Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM index is expected to rise to 51.4 in August from 51.2 in July, compared to a 14-year high of 61.4 in August of last year.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 6th Sepember 2019.




FX News Today

* Stock markets remained supported during the Asian session after a higher close on Wall Street yesterday.

* The prospect of a new round of trade talks helped to underpin sentiment Thursday and investors are scaling back easing expectations for the upcoming ECB and Fed meetings.

* Markets priced out a lot of their easing expectations for next week’s ECB meeting yesterday, the German production number (German industrial production fell -0.6% m/m in July,) acted as a reminder that the balance of risks still remains tilted to the downside and that also holds for Brexit risks.

* US reports revealed a surprisingly large August ISM-NMI bounce to 56.4 from a 3-year low of 53.7, alongside a similar ISM-adjusted bounce to 56.1 from a 3-year low of 53.0. The employment gauge fell, however, to a 2-year low of 53.1 from 56.2.

* The confidence in progress on the trade front is far from secured yet and while yesterday’s private payroll survey in the US was better than expected, markets are holding back ahead of official US Payroll numbers later today.

* Nikkei (JPN225) rose 0.43%. The Shanghai Comp is up 0.06%.

* European stock futures posted slight losses, while US futures held on to fractional gains.

* The USOIL meanwhile is trading at $56.30 per barrel.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD rallied early in the session topping at 1.1085, right at its 20-day moving average. Gains came on risk-on conditions, along with the market’s apparent scaling back of ECB easing expectations. Later, a stronger ADP jobs report and firmer services ISM reversed the pairing’s course, as the Dollar turned broadly higher on the data. The Euro later eased back toward 1.1035 before steadying. Relative strength of the US economy over Europe should keep EURUSD in sell-the-rally mode going forward.

* USDJPY has rallied sharply, peaking at 107.22 yesterday, levels last seen on August 2, and above its 50-day moving average for the first time since August 1. Prospects for US/China trade talks in October, along with better US data, and the accompanying Wall Street and Treasury yield rallies, have supported the pairing through the morning session. Currently is moving sideways in the upper BB (1-hour chart) and within the 1-month Resistance area at 106.80-107.04. A decisive daily candle above this area could turn the overall outlook.

Main Macro Events Today

* UK court hearing on forcing no-deal Brexit

* Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Eurozone’s economic growth s.a for Q2 2019, is likely to remain confirmed with GDP rising by 0.2% q/q.

* NFP and Labour Market Data (USD, GMT 12:30) – A 155k August nonfarm payroll rise has been estimated, following a 164k increase in July. The unemployment rate should tick down to 3.6% after an uptick to 3.7% in June that was sustained in July, and hours-worked are estimated to rise 0.3%. Average hourly earnings should rise 0.3% m/m.

* Employment Change (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Employment change is seen spiking to 12.5k in the number of employed people in August, compared to the decline 24.2k in July. The unemployment rate is expected to remain at 3.7%.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 11th Sepember 2019.




FX News Today

* Asian bond markets in general under pressure as local investors caught up with developments in the US yesterday.

* Excessive easing hopes continue to be scaled back ahead of the ECB meeting tomorrow and the Fed decision yesterday but with lingering hopes that governments will step up support for the global economy helping to underpin stock markets.

* President Trump has fired National Security Adviser John Bolton.

* The departure of Bolton has lifted hopes that the US will take a softer stance on China and North Korea and it also triggered a sell-off in oil amid hopes that tensions with Iran may ease.

* China will lift limits on foreign investment, which underpinned brokerages.

* News wires are citing a report from China’s South China Morning Post that China will buy more agricultural products from the US, to “sweeten” the trade deal. This should help add to optimism of more progress.

* The WTI futures has recovered some of yesterday’s losses and is trading at $57.86 per barrel, after falling to a low of 57.20 in the wake of the Bolton announcement.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* Oil: WTI crude slid from $58.60 to $57.30 following news that NSA Bolton was fired by Trump. The ouster of the uber-hawk Bolton is equated by the oil market as an easing in potential conflict between the US and Iran. The WTI contract remains up over $1 from Monday’s low and the 200-day SMA.

* USDJPY printed near 6-week highs of 107.84, continuing to be supported by hopes for a solution to the US/China trade dispute. US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin said recently there has been “lots of progress on talks” recently. In addition, a Reuters source report ahead of the US open indicated BoJ policymakers have discussed further easing measures, including cutting rates further into negative territory. This weighed on the Yen as well.

Main Macro Events Today
