Central Banks keep markets choppy.



The SNB held rate settings unchanged at the June policy review, as widely expected. The central bank said in a statement that the “expansionary monetary policy remains necessary to ensure appropriate monetary conditions in Switzerland“. To this extent “and in light of the highly valued Swiss franc it remains willing to intervene more strongly in the foreign exchange market”. Under the SNB Covid-19 refinancing facility (CRF) the bank is also providing the banking system with additional liquidity. Not surprisingly the bank stressed that growth and inflation forecasts come with an unusually high degree of uncertainty at the moment, but under that proviso the bank projects CPI to fall to -0.7% this year and remain negative at -0.2% in 2021 before lifting to 0.2% in 2022. This is based on the assumption that the policy rate remains at -0.75%, which highlights that negative rates are unlikely to disappear any time soon.

SNB is sticking to aggressive fx intervention as the main tool to fight the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. SNB chief Jordan stressed that the currency is “highly valued” and repeated that the central bank will continue to sell it as needed. The bank now expects a contraction in economic activity of 6% this year, the most severe recession since 1970. Inflation forecasts were also cut but while the central bank maintains a dovish bias and previously said rates can be tweaked further, it is pretty clear that officials are reluctant to go below the current level of -0.75% for the key policy rate. Negative for longer remains the main message.

Low for Longer is also the message for Norges Bank. Norges Bank left its policy rate unchanged at zero percent. Norway’s central bank said in a statement that “the committee’s current assessment of the outlook and balance of risks suggests that the policy rate will most likely remain at today’s level for some time ahead”. Lower for longer then is the main message as the pandemic leads to a “sharp downturn in the Norwegian economy”. The statement did say that since the May meeting “activity has picked up faster than expected”, “unemployment has fallen more than anticipated and oil prices have risen”, but despite this activity remains “substantially lower than at the start of the year”. There is also still “considerable uncertainty surrounding the path to recovery”. Against that background the bank argues that “low interest rates are contributing to speeding up the return to more normal output and employment levels”. Norges Bank’s latest policy rate forecast “implies a rate at the current level of the next couple of years, followed by a gradual rise as economic conditions normalise”.

Nonetheless, after today’s SNB conference, the bank is clearly trying to prevent a “disproportionately” strong Swiss franc. That said, as the Swiss franc came under strong upward pressure due to search for safe havens and as it still remains highly valued according to SNB, the Swiss franc is expected to face a limited appreciation as SNB maintained that they will keep intervening strongly to limit the appreciation of the Swiss franc – as they have been doing over the past few months already.

As for today the conference looks to be an uneventful event as CHF has kept steady and USDCHF has stalled since the Asia session within the 0.9481-0.9500 area, while EURCHF has been consolidating between 1.0667 – 1.0689 for 6 consecutive hours.

FX Update – June 19 – Mixed Markets.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Narrow ranges have been prevailing among Dollar pairings and cross rates against a backdrop of uncertainty in global markets. Most stock markets have lifted out of lows over the last day, though many indices still remain below highs seen earlier in the week. China’s CSI managed to edge out a three-and-a-half-month high, but Japan’s Nikkei and South Korea’s KOSPI, while posting moderate gains, remained below highs from earlier in the week. S&P 500 futures gained 0.5%, but remained off yesterday’s highs.



In Forex markets, EURUSD has settled to a consolidation of recent losses, holding a narrow range in the lower 1.1200s, above the 16-day low seen yesterday at 1.1185. USDJPY has been plying a narrow range in the upper 106.00s, holding above yesterday’s one-week low at 106.67. Cable, amid its second week of declines, has steadied in the mid 1.2400s, above yesterday’s 18-day low at 1.2401. EURGBP concurrently settled off its three-week high, seen Thursday, at 0.9044. Both AUDUSD and AUDJPY have been posting narrow ranges well within the confines of their respective Thursday highs and lows. The Canadian Dollar posted modest gains, although USDCAD remained within its previous-day range.



USOil prices printed a nine-day peak at $39.69, buoyed by news that the OPEC+ group agreed to meet their supply cut quotas, along with major oil traders saying that demand is recovering, although both these items should already have been largely factored in. USOil has failed to close over $40.00 since the early days of March. Gold continues to hold over the key $1725.00 zone, and test the $1730 area, in early European trades.

European stock markets are modestly higher in early trades too, with the GER30 up 0.5%, the UK100 0.3%. US futures are now posting gains of 0.4-0.6% and the 10-year Treasury yield is up from overnight lows at 0.71% – up 0.5 bp on the day.

Taking a step back, global market sentiment is grappling with glass-half-empty and glass-half-full arguments. There are signs of new waves of coronavirus infections as economies reopen, which has already seen social restrictions being introduced in some places (such as in Beijing and California). Geopolitical issues remain wildcards. President Trump, for instance, said yesterday that the US could complete a “decoupling” from China. On the “half full” side, there is the expectation that the massive stimulus by global central banks is primed to give risk assets a major boost.

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

Events to Look Out for This Week.




Welcome to our weekly agenda, our briefing on all the key financial events globally.Virus jitters will remain a focus along with Beijing and several US states as real data continues to reveal the impact of the pandemic on the economy. Market attention is honed in on any trade escalations but also on next week’s agenda, the high frequency data of the world’s biggest economy remaining a major focal point for markets.


Monday – 22 June 2020

PBoC Interest Rate Decision (CNY, GMT 01:30) – The People’s Bank of China announced a more aggressive monetary stimulus in its first-quarter report. In this meeting they should provide guidances on the next move in Loan Prime Rates.

Tuesday – 23 June 2020

Markit PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30-08:00) – The prel. June composite PMI for Germany is forecasted to register an upwards reading to 34.1 from 32.3, while the Eurozone’s number is expected to decline to 25.0 from 31.9.

Markit PMI (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The May final services PMI was revised up to 29.0 from 27.8 vs 13.4 in April, and final manufacturing PMI revised up to 40.7 from 40.6, vs 32.6 in April.

New Home Sales (USD, GMT 14:00) – A 1.1% May increase is seen for new home sales to a 630k pace, after a slight rise to a 623k rate in April. We saw a 12-year high of 774k as recently as January. The start of mandated closures in mid-March fueled the March-April pull-back for sales, following robust growth for all the housing measures through the winter, though a big Q2 hit is expected on home sales. As the economy reopens, the recovery for new home construction will likely be faster than for the rest of the economy, given solid fundamentals going into the crisis, and even lower mortgage rates.

Wednesday – 24 June 2020

Interest rate Decision and Conference (NZD, GMT 02:00) – RBNZ held rates steady at 1.75% in May, and this is expected to remain the case again in next week’s meeting.

German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – June German IFO business confidence is expected to slow down to 78.3, after it unexpectedly rose to 79.5 in May.

Trade Balance (NZD, GMT 22:45) – The overall trade deficit of New Zealand is currently at -$2.5B.

Thursday – 25 June 2020

ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts (EUR, GMT 11:30) –The ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts, similar to the FOMC minutes, provide information with regards to the policymakers’ rationale behind their decisions.

Jobless Claims (USD, GMT 12:30)– US initial jobless claims fell -58k to 1,508k in the week ended June 13 following the-331k drop to 1,566k (was 1,542k) in the June 6 week. That’s an 11th consecutive weekly decline since the record surge to an all-time high of 6,867k in the March 27 week.

Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to rise 17.0% in May with a 105% surge in transportation orders, after a -17.7% headline orders decrease in April that included a -48.3% transportation orders decline.

US Final Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – No net revision in the -5.0% Q1 GDP growth clip is anticipated. The revised Q1 data will still depict a quarter that was likely posting respectable 2% growth until mid-March, when mandatory shutdowns prompted a dramatic output plunge.

Tokyo CPI (JPY, GMT 23:30) – The country’s main leading indicator of inflation is expected to have declined at -0.2% y/y in June ex Fresh Food.

Friday – 26 June 2020

Personal Spending and Consumption (USD, GMT 12:30) – Personal consumption is expected to decrease by -5.7% in May after a 10.5% increase in April, alongside a 5.2% rebound in consumption that follows a -13.6% decrease in April. April income faced a big boost from the CARES Act that will be partly unwind into May.

Michigan Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – Michigan Index is the main US consumer confidence index and it is expected to remain flat following the lift to 78.9 from 72.3 in May.

Date : 23rd June 2020.

European Market : EURUSD at 1.1300 again.



The news flow today caused a brief risk-off burst in Asia-Pacific markets followed by a sharp recovery. In currencies, this transpired as a bout of dollar and yen outperformance alongside a sharp drop in risk-sensitive currencies such as the Australian dollar, followed by a quick reversal. The cause was miscommunication from the White House. Trade adviser to President Trump, Pete Navarro, said during an interview with Fox that the trade deal with China was “over.”

This saw risk assets and currencies tumbling, before Navarro quickly walked-back his remarks with the help of White House Economic adviser Kudlow, who affirmed that the trade deal was very much in place. Trump himself then tweeted: “China Trade Deal is fully intact.“

The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex (DXY) dropped to a 96.65 low on the initial remarks by Navarro, which is the lowest level seen since June 17th, before sprinting to a 97.24 high and subsequently settling near 97.00. EURUSD concurrently dropped by over 30 pips in making a low at 1.1244 before rebounding to levels around 1.1305. The pair earlier printed a six-day high at 1.1305.

Followed by overnight news, European stock markets and Euro remain broadly higher, after the stronger than expected Eurozone and UK PMI readings that help to underpin sentiment further.

Eurozone PMIs stronger than expected in preliminary readings for June. The manufacturing PMI lifted to a four months high of 46.9 from 39.4 in May and the services number jumped to 47.3 from 30.5 in May. That left the composite at a 4-month high of 47.5, up from 31.9 in the previous month. Data still points to overall contraction in the Eurozone economy, but the French readings were already above the 50-point no change mark and the pace of the downturn eased markedly as economies further relaxed restrictions. Markit also reported continued strong improvement in business expectations for the year ahead. Hotels, restaurants, travel and tourism remain impacted but with borders gradually opening there seems at least light at the end of the tunnel, which is helping to boost sentiment even if current conditions remain subdued. Nevertheless, we agree with Markit’s comment that the outlook remains uncertain as the “new normal” will likely continue to impact the services sector in particular and it remains to be seen how many companies can survive the downturn, especially if and when government wage support is scaled back

In other news, SNB’s Zurbruegg stated that FX intervention potentially “unlimited”. Zurbruegg said there are no limits to how far the SNB’s balance sheet could expand. He also suggested that the bank is not concerned about the possibility of being named a currency manipulator by the U.S. saying the central bank is in close contact with the United States to explain Switzerland’s special situation and its highly valued currency. At the same time, Zurbruegg said monetary policy can not cushion the blow of Covid-19 – stressing that “this is where fiscal policy comes in. If fiscal policy no longer able to use its instruments, this will lead to a worse overall economic result”.

European stock markets are selling off.



European stock markets are selling off. The better than expected German Ifo reading failed to lift sentiment and after a mixed close in Asia stock markets are now selling off across Europe, with GER30 and UK100 down -1.8% on the day.

Meanwhile US futures have lost their modest overnight gains and are down -0.4 to -0.7% now with fears of a second wave of virus infections and warnings that the lockdowns will have a longer term impact on activity adding to caution.Markets already struggled during the Asian part of the session and Topix and Nikkei closed with losses of -0.4% and -0.07% respectively. The Hang Seng was -0.50% lower at the close, while CSI 300 and ASX managed gained of 0.4% and 0.2%.

Lets get back to GER30 and UK100 though. The interesting part is that both assets reversed away from the 61.8%-76.4% Fibonacci level set on the June’s downleg. Theoretically, 61.8% is the strongest retracement level, hence that confirms that from the technical side, the asset confirmed that retracement and further decline could find support on lower Fib. levels. However other that the slip away from 61.8% Fib. level, both assets breakout their 20-day SMA, suggesting that if the price action is been sustained by the end of the day below it, then the asset could be seen retesting June 11-15 low territory.

In regards to the EU data now……

German Ifo business confidence jumped to 86.2 in June, from 79.7 in the previous month. The current conditions index nudged higher, but less than hoped and the overall improvement was mainly due to a jump in the future expectations reading, which lifted to 91.4 from 80.4 in may. This is the highest reading since February, although the overall reading still fell back to an average of 80.1 in the second quarter of the year, from 92.6 in the first quarter. The numbers highlight the sharp correction in overall activity that was the result of lockdowns and the diffusion index, which gives the balance of positive and negative answers, still remained firmly in negative territory in June, with pessimists outnumbering optimists across all key sectors. A further indication then that things are improving, but that it will take a long time to overcome the slump. Against that background it remains to be see how many companies will survive and how the labour market will far once official wage support schemes are scaled back.

Another mixed US data set.



USDJPY, H1

Another mixed set of US data today, with the Weekly Claims once again falling but just as importantly missing expectations. Durable Goods were a positive beat but the advance goods trade deficit widened and the final reading of Q1 GDP remained unmoved at -5.0%.

US initial jobless claims fell -60,000 to 1,480,000 in the week ended June 20 following the disappointing small -26,000 drop to 1,540,000 (was 1,508,000) in the June 13 week which also coincided with the BLS survey period. This is a 12th straight decline in claims after the record surge to the all-time high of 6,867,000 in the March 27 week. The 4-week moving average continued to slip and was at 1,620,750 versus 1,781,500 (was 1,773,000). Continuing claims dropped -767,000 to 19,522,000 in the week of June 13 after falling -317,000 to 20,289,000 (was 20,544,000).

US durable goods orders bounced 15.8% in May, a little firmer than expected and the biggest leap since July 2014, following the -18.1% (was -17.7%) plunge in April (the second worst on record) and the -16.7% drop in March. Transportation orders climbed 80.7% after April’s -48.6% (was -47.3%) plunge. Excluding transportation, orders rebounded 4.0% from -8.2% (was -7.7%) previously. Nondefense capital goods orders excluding aircraft climbed 2.3% from -6.5% (was -6.1%). Shipments were up 4.4% in May from -18.6% (was -18.2%). Nondefense capital goods shipments excluding aircraft rose 1.8% from -6.2% (was -5.7%). Inventories edged up 0.1% versus the prior unchanged reading (was 0.2%).

US Q1 GDP was unrevised at -5.0% in the third look at the data, and compares to -4.8% in the Advance number, and 2.1% in Q4 2019. Personal consumption was down -6.8%, as it was in the second report, and was -7.6% in the Advance, and 1.8% in Q4. Fixed investment was revised up to a -1.3% pace from -2.4% in the second look, and was -0.6% in Q4. Government consumption was bumped up to 1.1% from 0.8% previously and 2.5% in Q4. Inventories subtracted -1.56%, revised down from -0.98%, while net exports added 1.3%, also lowered from 1.5% previously. The GDP chain price index posted a 1.4% rate, as it did in the second look, and was 1.3% in Q4. The core rate rose to 1.7% from 1.6% previously and 1.3% in Q4.

Finally, the US advance goods trade deficit widened to -$74.3 bln in May from -$70.7 bln (was -$69.7 bln). Exports fell -5.8% to $90.1 bln after plunging -25.1% to $95.6 bln in April. Imports dropped -1.2% to $164.4 bln following the -13.6% decline to $166.3 bln previously. Wholesale inventories declined -1.2% to $642.2 from $649.9 bln (was $651.5 bln), with retail inventories dropping -6.1% to $604.5 bln from $643.8 bln (was $644.9 bln).



All of this has taken the shine off the USD recovery today – USDJPY slipped from 107.45 back under R1 at 107.20 and EURUSD moved up from S2 sub-1.1200, to 1.1225. However, both remain on trend from key moves which were initiated yesterday.

Date : 29th June 2020.

Events to Look Out for This Week.




An important week is coming up as Brexit trade talks resume next week, with Boris Johnson holding a video link summit with the EU Commission President on Monday. In addition, NFPs will be out on Thursday and a broad range of PMIs and other early indicators are expected during the week.

Monday – 29 June 2020

Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 12:00) – The German HICP inflation is expected to hold at 0.5% y/y for June.

Tuesday – 30 June 2020

Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 06:00) – The GDP is the economy’s most important figure. Q1’s GDP is expected to remain unchanged at -1.6% y/y and -2% q/q. As for the Q2 GDP, a severe contraction is expected after the 20.4% m/m contraction seen in April.

Consumer Price Index and Core (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area flash CPI for June is forecasted to remain steady, at 0.1% y/y.

Gross Domestic Product (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The April GDP is expected to contract at -18.2%. The Q1 GDP revealed a -8.2% pandemic driven drop, marking a hefty pull-back in activity as lockdown measures shuttered much of the economy in the second half of March.

Consumer Confidence (USD, GMT 14:00) – Consumer confidence is expected to rise to 89.0 from 86.6 in May and a 6-year low of 86.9 in April. This compares to an 18-year high of 137.9 in October of 2018 and a recession-low of 25.3 in February of 2009. The present situation index is expected to improve to 78.5 from a seven-year low of 71.1 in May. All of the available confidence measures were oscillating near historic highs before being crushed by COVID-19, and even with big drop-backs, it’s remarkable how firm the consumer measures have stayed relative to prior recessions.

Treasury Secretary Mnuchin speech

Feds Chair Powell testimony

Wednesday – 01 July 2020

Canada and Hong-Kong – Holiday Day.

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

Markit Manufacturing PMI and Unemployment data (EUR, GMT 07:55) – In June, the German PMI is expected to once again show weakness in German manufacturing and a lift in the jobless rate at 6.6%, despite the wage subsidies and announced stimulus from the government. These are unlikely to prevent a further rise in official jobless numbers to around the 3 million mark by the end of the year, highlighting the impact of the pandemic on the economy.

ADP Employment Change (USD, GMT 12:15) – Employment change is seen spiking to 3.5 mln in the number of employed people in June, compared to the -2,760k May ADP drop.

ISM Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM index is expected to rise to 49.0 in June from 43.1 in May.

Thursday – 02 July 2020

NFP and Labour Market Data (USD, GMT 12:30) – A 3,000k June nonfarm payroll increase is projected, after a 2,509k rebound in May and a -20,527 April collapse.An assumption has been made for a 600k factory jobs increase in June, after a 225k May rise, with a big lift from a re-opening vehicle sector. The jobless rate should fall to 12.0% from 13.3% in May and a 14.7% peak in April. The continuing claims data have been slow to moderate, but nearly all other measures of activity have risen into June from a trough just after the April BLS survey week. Average hourly earnings are assumed to fall another -1.0% in June with a continued unwind of the April distortion from the concentration of layoffs in low-wage categories. This would translate to a drop in the y/y gain to 5.3% from 6.7%.

Friday – 03 July 2020

United States – Independence Day.

Retail Sales (AUD, GMT 00:30) – Retail Sales are expected to flatten at 16.3% for May.

USDIndex – Is the trend still down?



USDIndex – The Dollar has strengthened after home sales came out better than expected, at 44.3% from the 19.7% predicted and higher than -21.8% seen last month, boosting also stock markets. The US returned to the positive with S&P +1.47%, NASDAQ +1.2% and Dow Jones +2.32%.

It looks like the USDIndex’s resumption attempt in the second half of June was not as effective as expected, with safe haven demand falling after the May lockdown. As a result of the latter, the US Dollar seems to be based on more internal economic factors. Therefore, this week we must pay special attention to US economic data. Today, the Chicago PMI index numbers are due alongside consumer confidence and Fed President Powell’s testimony, and tomorrow the ADP employment numbers and the PMI-ISM index will highlight US economic calendar this week , Tthe non-farm payrolls – which have moved to Thursday because Friday is the National Day and the market is closed.

However, the USDIndex trend still has significant obstacles in the uptrend. A potential bearish flag trend could be spotted which could be the continuation of the downtrend if it is confirmed with a strong pullback. That is still below the 200-EMA and followed by Golden cross (50-EMA and 200-EMA), all of which are in line with momentum indicators such as MACD that are still in the negative.

US Data – ADP, PMIs & Vaccine News.



EURUSD, H1

US ADP reported private payrolls rose 2.369 million in June. Also, May was revised sharply higher, by 5.825 million to a 3.065 million increase (was -2.760 million). April’s -19.409 million was a record plunge. Jobs in the goods production sector increased 457,000, with construction jobs up 394,000. Service sector employment increased 1.912 million, with gains of 961,000 in leisure/hospitality, 283,000 in education/health, and 151,000 in professional/business services. A robust private payrolls. The ADP climb beats the modest improvement in the continuing and initial claims data for the period, but undershoots the bigger sales, sentiment, and output gains in other measures, and is in line with the payroll gain expected for tomorrow’s jobs report. ADP gains were fairly evenly dispersed across increases of 873,000 for large companies, 559,000 for medium companies, and 937,000 for small companies.

US final June Markit manufacturing rose to 49.8 (was 49.6 in the preliminary) from May’s 39.8. It is a fourth month of contraction and was at 50.6 a year ago. But the weakness is abating from the 36.1 record low from April amid re-openings of the economy. The 10-point surge in the index was a record jump, and it is now the highest reading since February. Output climbed to 47.5 from May’s 34.4, with new orders also moving higher.

US equity markets have opened in positive territory, rebounding from early losses on the futures market following reports of positive results on a vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech.

EURUSD pushes towards 1.1250 following a dip to 1.1184 earlier, USDJPY pivots around 107.50, down from Asian session highs at 108.06 and the USA500 trades at 3115 and highs of the day. FOMC Minutes due at 18:00 GMT.

EURUSD – The remainder of the week.



EURUSD, H4 – Even though the weekly framework is still sideways, the overall view of this pair is still considered positive. However, due to the strength of the USD yesterday, the pair pushed back to below 1.3000, after it initially propped up following the European Economic Report yesterday . Overall, the results were lower than expected. German industrial production came out at 7.8% from the forecast of 11%. France had a trade deficit more than expected at -7.1 billion, while Italian retail sales came out better than expected.

Throughout June the pair was in the range of 1.1200-1.1350. In the H4-chart it has been being supported by the 50-period EMA line since yesterday. From last week we began to see higher lows as well as new highs, suggesting that it is likely to see the pair test the same high again at 1.1350. The MACD is still in the positive territory, but if we see the pair breaking through the 50-period-EMA, it could be seen that this pair will come down to test the key support zone at the 200-period EMA , which clashes with the 1.1200 low.

However, in larger time frames like the weekly one, it can be seen that the EURUSD is already trying for the 6th consecutive week to pass the major Resistance level at the 200-week EMA or higher, but it looks to be stuck between the 50-week and the 200-week EMA. Hence any pullback away from the 200-week EMA could see the asset retesting the 50-week EMA line if the 1.1200 fails to provide Support.

The economic calendar this week is quiet. The key data from the EUR side today is the European Commission’s economic growth forecast. On Thursday, there is the European group meeting Including numbers using the US unemployment privileges, and on Friday, US PPI numbers will be announced.

14th consecutive decline in US claims.



EURUSD, H1

After it pared declines as a mostly risk-on session in Asia, led by a continued rally in Chinese stocks, gave way to a less certain session in European markets, Dollar was little changed after the slightly higher than consensus rise in jobless claims. EURUSD turned slightly lower to 1.1335 from 1.1340, while USDJPY was pretty much unchanged, bouncing between 107.17-107.40.

US initial jobless claims dropped -99k to 1,314k in the week ended July 4, close to forecasts. The prior report for June 27 was revised to show a -69k decline to 1,413k (was 1,427k). This is the 14th week of decline from the record 6,867k from March 27. It brings the 4-week moving average to 1,437.25k from 1,500.25k (was 1,503.75k). Continuing claims declined -698k to 18,062k in the week ended June 27 versus 18,760k (was 19,290k) in the June 20 week. And continuing claims are down from a May 9 high of 24,912k. The insured unemployment rate fell to 12.4% from 12.9% (was 13.2%).



Today‘s improvement was encouraging, though claims declines overall continue to fall short of the rebound we’re seeing in nonfarm payrolls, as well as the increases into the summer for most available supply and demand measures for the economy, though with some restraint in gains recently from pull-backs in re-openings.



Treasury yields are inching slightly lower, even as equity futures rally. There was no real impact from the 14th consecutive decline in initial jobless claims. The 10-year yield is 1.8 bps richer at 0.646%, while the 2-year has dipped to 0.157%. Equity futures are now in the green, albeit barely for the USA30, while the USA100 is 0.6% firmer and the USA500 is up 0.2%.

Caution over the coronavirus, with another record increase in US cases, and concerns over the reopening process are dictating a lot of the trade.

Events to Look Out for This Week.




An interesting week is coming up, packed with economic data and political developments, as next week’s EU summit highlights that the EUR 750 bln recovery fund proposed by the European Commission remains controversial in its proposed form, and remains far from certain. Attention will remain on virus reports and on the monetary policy meetings in the world’s major economies (ECB, BoJ and BoC) and their potential for guidance regarding future stimulus actions.

.Monday – 13 July 2020

BoE’s Governor Bailey speech (USD, GMT 15:30) – In June’s meeting, the BoE voted unanimously to keep rates unchanged, but a 8-1 majority opted for an extension of the asset purchase target by GBP 100 bln to now GBP 745 bln. The overall tone of the assessment seemed less gloomy than the sharp contraction in monthly GDP had suggested. This speech could clear the view of further stimulus and the reports that the BoE has been talking with commercial banks to prepare them for the possibility of negative interest rates.

Tuesday – 14 July 2020

Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The German HICP inflation for June is anticipated to decline at 0.5% y/y from 0.8% y/y.

Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 06:00) – GDP is the economy’s most important figure. April’s GDP was contracted to -20.4% m/m.

ECB Bank Lending Survey (EUR, GMT 08:00) – The bank lending survey (BLS) for the euro area was launched in 2003. Its main objective is to enhance the Eurosystem’s knowledge of financing conditions in the euro area.

Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – German July ZEW economic sentiment is expected to have declined at 60.0 compared to 63.4 in June.

Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – The headline CPI for June is expected with a 0.1% core price rate, following May declines of -0.1% for both. The headline will be boosted by an estimated 13% June pop for CPI gasoline prices. As-expected June figures would result in a headline y/y increase of 0.6%, up from 0.1% in May. Core prices should sit a 1.0% y/y rise, below the 1.2% y/y pace last month.

SNB’s Chairman Jordan speech (CHF, GMT 13:30)

Wednesday – 15 July 2020

BoJ Interest Rate Decision and Conference (JPY, GMT 03:00- 06:00) – Shadowed by Covid-19, the BoJ has less room for monetary policy manoeuvre, with Japan not depending on foreign investment inflows to sustain financing and with Japanese investors apt during times of risk aversion in global markets to repatriate capital from the sale of foreign assets, and/or put on currency hedges on foreign assets.

Consumer Price Index and Retail Sales (GBP, GMT 06:00) – Prices are expected to have eased in June, with overall inflation expected to stand unchanged at 0.5% y/y, and core at 1.3% from 1.2% y/y last month. UK retail sales expected to grow slightly to 0.1% in June.

BoC Interest Rate Decision and Conference (CAD, GMT 14:00- 15:00) – Bank of Canada expected to maintain the 0.25% rate setting. However, since in the latest announcement the Bank maintained its commitment to continue large-scale asset purchases until the economic recovery is well underway, this is expected to be seen again this time.

Thursday – 16 July 2020

Employment Data (AUD, GMT 01:30) – Both the unemployment rate and the employment change are expected to have grown in June.

Gross Domestic Product (CNY, GMT 02:00) – GDP is the economy’s most important figure. Q2’s GDP is expected to be dropped to -9.9% q/q contraction from -9.8%q/q.
Average Earnings (GBP, GMT 06:00) – Average Earnings excluding bonus are expected to have grown by 1.4% in May. The ILO unemployment rate is expected to have risen at 4.7% from 3.9%.

ECB Interest Rate Decision and Press Conference (EUR, GMT 11:45 & 12:30) – So far the ECB seems to have been united behind the goal to provide financial market stability through the crisis as lockdowns not just across Europe plunged economies into deep recessions.
However, hectic diplomacy ahead of EU summit highlights that the EUR 750 bln recovery fund proposed by the European Commission remains controversial in its proposed form, and remains far from certain. At the same time, there is a new rifts emerging at the ECB – not just over the need to use the full PEPP envelope, but also over the future of the inflation target. Virus headlines have distracted from the fact that the ECB is currently in the process of conducting a thorough review of its overall strategy and that also involved the definition of price stability, which currently still is set as “below but close to 2%”. In the current situation that would mean the central bank would leave expansionary policy measures in place longer than necessary to bring inflation back to the 2% target.

Retail Sales (USD, GMT 12:30) – June increases are expected at 6.0% for headline retail sales and 6.7% for the ex-auto figure, following May increases of 17.7% for the headline and 12.4% ex-autos.

Friday – 17 July 2020

EU Leaders Special Summit.

Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The final Euro Area CPI for June is anticipated to slow down to 0.1% y/y from 0.3%y/y last month. The core inflation is seen at 0.9% y/y from 0.8% y/y.

Sterling in the Cross-hairs today.



GBPUSD, H1

UK data today has continued the pressure on Sterling, with the UK economy rebounding less than expected in May. Overall GDP lifted 1.8% m/m, compared to Bloomberg consensus of 5.5% m/m. With economic activity still falling -20.3% m/m in April, the modest uptick over the month still saw the annual rate falling back to -19.1%, from -10.8% y/y in the previous month. Industrial production actually lifted 6.0% m/m and construction output rebounded 8.2% m/m, but rebounds fell short of expectations and this also holds for the index of services, which lifted a mere 0.9% m/m, after still falling -18.9% m/m in April. Services are still down nearly 19% on last year’s levels, construction output is nearly 40% below the levels in May last year and overall industrial production 20%. Virus restrictions came later and subsequently were also lifted later in the UK compared to most other European countries, and forward looking confidence data are signalling that at least the construction sector is back in expansion territory. Still, the numbers highlight downside risks, especially as there is also not much progress in trade talks with the EU, leaving the risk that the transition period will end without a new deal in place.



The Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) also issued their latest updates today and it makes sorry reading for the UK economy, with expectations of record peacetime levels of public debt and the largest decline in UK GDP in 300 years.



Cable carved out a six-day low at 1.2537, which has been partly a product of sterling underperformance following a much weaker than expected UK May GDP figure, and followed through to test 1.2505 following the OBR report. EURGBP concurrently lifted to a seven-day peak at 0.9069, and GBPJPY traded into six-day low terrain at 134.17.

FX Update – July 15 – A Softer USD persists.



EURUSD, H1

The Dollar has remained on a softening track against most other currencies, while the Euro has remained broadly underpinned amid expectations for EU leaders to green-light the proposed EUR 750 bln recovery fund this week. The Pound managed to rebound after underperforming over the prior two days. Risk appetite has been buoyant, with European and Asia stock markets rallying and US equity index futures gaining, underpinned by news that US biotech company Moderna’s candidate vaccine for the SARS Cov-2 coronavirus was shown in an early-stage trial to be safe while successfully provoking immune responses in all 45 of the volunteers. News from Oxford, UK¹, too, that more progress is being made on the vaccine front also helped lift sentiment and equity markets.

The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex carved out a fresh one-month low at 95.80, drawing in on the four-and-a-half-month low seen in June at 95.72. EURUSD rallied to its highest level since early March at 1.1445. Cable rallied to a two-day high at 1.2626, extending a strong rebound from Tuesday’s eight-day low at 1.2479. The rise in Cable wasn’t just a softer dollar story, as the Pound concurrently rebounded against the Euro, driving EURGBP to a 0.9051 low, extending a correction from yesterday’s two-week high at 0.9115. GBPJPY also lifted to a two-day high. USDJPY drifted under 107.00, expecting a moderate correction from yesterday’s one-week high at 107.44. The risk-sensitive AUDJPY cross printed a five-week high at 75.29. AUDUSD similarly reached a five-week peak, at 0.7020. The BoJ left policy unchanged, as had been widely anticipated. Governor Kuroda maintained dovish guidance, noting that there remain various tools that could be utilized for further easing.

Ahead of the BOC later, USDCAD has ebbed to a two-day low at 1.3560, weighed down by a combination of the broader US dollar softness and a broadly firmer Canadian currency, which has been concomitant with a bout of risk-on positioning in global markets. Front-month USOil futures have rotated higher following a phase of sub-$40 pricing, printing a six-day high at $40.93, which has been supportive of oil-correlating currencies, including the Canadian Dollar. Gold continues to wind higher, trading to a four-day high at $1815 earlier, before cooling to $1805 currently.

EUR & ECB Preview.



Economic activity has rebounded on both sides of the channel as lockdowns were lifted, but the impressive rebound in confidence data in recent months has proven to be too optimistic on the speed of the recovery with real sector data for May actually looking weaker than hoped. That ties in with the moderation in market confidence, which was also reflected in German ZEW investor confidence, which pulled back from June highs in today’s July numbers. Central bankers meanwhile acknowledge that the second quarter may not have been as bad as initially feared and have essentially switched to a wait and see stance, after putting substantial crisis measures in place.

With that in mind the ECB is widely expected to keep policy settings unchanged at today’s meeting. Lagarde’s recent comments suggest that data releases have come in slightly better than officials had feared and the central bank seems ready to move out of crisis mode and into a wait and see stance. That doesn’t mean the ECB won’t keep the option of additional easing measures open, but for now officials should be able to afford to take a step back and monitor the impact of crisis measures already implemented.

Wait and see then is likely to be the main message at today’s council meeting, although Lagarde will, however, stress again the need for fiscal stimulus to support monetary policy and step up the pressure on politicians to come to an agreement on the proposed EUR 750 bln pandemic recovery fund, that will be discussed at the EU leaders summit later in the week. Central bankers have long stressed the need to complement monetary policies with appropriate fiscal policies and on the whole central bankers also seem to welcome the proposal for a jointly funded mechanism and a focus on grants rather than loans.

The debate will take place within the context of the EU’s next multiannual budget framework, and won’t be easy, as countries disagree on whether to focus on grants or loans and whether jointly backed market funding is the right way forward.

Markets have the fund pretty much priced in and the risk is of course that the reality of EU politics once again falls short of what investors are looking for.

DAX – GER30

Meanwhile European stock markets are broadly lower with peripheral markets outperforming slightly going into the ECB meeting. General risk appetite has waned again amid concerns about the global outlook and rising tensions between the US and China. The GER30 is currently down -0.8%, and the UK100 down -0.9%, while IBEX and MIB are posting losses of -0.1%. US futures are also heading south following on from a broad move lower across Asian markets.

GER30, despite the short term decline, sustains 4-month highs, close to the 13,000 area. The index filled May’s and June’s gap, while it has been trading well above Ichimoku cloud since May, suggesting an overall positive bias. All daily exponential moving averages (20, 50 and 200) are aligned northwards. Momentum indicators are gradually moving more positive as the market has pulled higher this week. RSI is above 60 and confirming higher lows since early June, inline with the uptrend in the price action along with strong positive configuration on Stochastics, despite the flattening of MACD lines that suggest consolidation. The bulls could be looking to use any near term weakness as an entry point. Hence Support could be seen at 12,500 (20-DMA and 76.4% Fib. level since January 2020).

It is interesting to see though that despite the positive technical background it struggles to break the 13,000 Resistance area.



EURO

The EUR fell back against a generally stronger US Dollar, with EURUSD trading slightly above S1 at 1.1384. Risk appetite waned again, amid concern about the world recovery, and US-China tensions and with the security breach at Twitter Inc not helping. Eurozone markets which traded unevenly yesterday are likely to remain cautious going into the ECB announcement today.

EUR intraday remains under pressure with fast MAs aligned lower and lower Bollinger bands extending southwards. Next immediate support could be found at 1.1350, and 1.1330 (200-EMA in 1-hour chart). Volumes meanwhile declining suggesting that the bullish momentum seen since 10 of June is threatened.

FX Update – July 17 – Preparing for the Weekend.



USDCAD, H1

Currencies have hunkered down in narrow ranges, with the Dollar and Yen consolidating after rising against most other units yesterday. Global stock markets are lacking direction, too. The persisting pandemic remains a concern for investors, even though the lack of fresh cases in many reopened countries now looks like nothing more than a bad respiratory illness season. Offsetting pandemic concerns are expectations for the US and other countries to extend “first wave” fiscal support packages before they expire, while EU leaders will meet later today to move the proposed EUR 750 bln recovery fund toward fruition.

Among currencies, EURUSD settled just above the three-day low that was seen yesterday at 1.1370. USDJPY plied a sub-20 pip range in the lower 107.00s, and EURJPY and other yen crosses were similarly directionally challenged. AUDUSD held in a narrow range above yesterday’s three-day low at 0.6963. AUDJPY did likewise. USDCAD edged out a two-day high at 1.3589, extending a rebound from Thursday’s eight-day low at 1.3500. Front-month USOil prices remained in a narrow-range consolidation below the three-week high seen earlier in the week at $41.26. Highlights on the calendar today include eurozone June inflation and US consumer confidence data, neither of which are likely to impact markets much. Market participants will also be watching the White House for a decision on whether President Trump will follow through on his threat to ban Chinese Communist Party members from travelling to the US.

Events to Look Out for This Week.




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

Monday – 20 July 2020

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

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

Tuesday – 21 July 2020

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

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

Wednesday – 22 July 2020

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

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

Thursday – 23 July 2020

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

Friday – 24 July 2020

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

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

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

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

EU leaders reach a deal – EUR mixed.



USDCAD, H1

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

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

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

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



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

FX Update – July 22 – Dollar & Yen Down.



AUDUSD, H1

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

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

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

FX Update – July 23 – USD Trends Lower.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

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



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



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

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

FX Update – July 24 – USD remains heavy.



USDJPY, H1

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



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



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

Events to Look Out for This Week.




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

Monday – 27 July 2020

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

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

Tuesday – 28 July 2020

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

Wednesday – 29 July 2020

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

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

Thursday – 30 July 2020

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

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

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

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

Friday – 31 July 2020

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

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

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

eBay Earning Preview – Will it Benefit from Social Distancing?



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

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

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

Technical Analysis

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

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

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

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



USDJPY, H1

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



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



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

US GDP & Claims data.



[bEURUSD, H1[/b]

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

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

Sterling Storms On.



GBPUSD, H1

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



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

FX Update – August 6 – USD to new lows.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

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

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

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

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

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



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

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

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

Events to Look Out for This Week.




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

Monday – 10 August 2020

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

Tuesday – 11 August 2020

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

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

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

Wednesday – 12 August 2020

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

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

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

Thursday – 13 August 2020

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

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

Friday – 14 August 2020

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

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

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

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

FX Update – August 13 – Weaker Dollar & Stronger Sterling.



The Dollar is down for a second day, with the narrow trade-weighted USDIndex printing a six-day low at 93.08 to nearly fully unwind the gains seen in the wake of last Friday’s US July jobs report, when we printed an eight-day high at 93.87.

Some market narratives have been attributing the Dollar’s ebb as being a return of the currency’s inverse correlation with stock market direction, along with the perception that the Fed has strategically dropped its concern about inflation risk, which has driven real US yields into negative territory. These factors appear to be outweighing the improvement in the US economy and downward trend in new coronavirus cases. As for Washington’s tensions with Beijing, this hasn’t been much of a concern for Wall Street, with most onlookers anticipating this weekend’s meetings to review progress on the Phase 1 trade deal will go well, even though China has been lagging behind in its purchases of US farm and energy goods.

Among the main Dollar pairings, EURUSD climbed to a six-day high at 1.1838, putting the 27-month high seen last Thursday at 1.1917 back in the scopes. USDJPY extended a moderate correction from yesterday’s three-week high at 107.03, posting a low at 106.57. The Yen was more mixed against other currencies, with EURJPY remaining buoyant, just off the 16-month high that was pegged yesterday at 126.23, while AUDJPY traded softer after the cross peaked at a three-week high yesterday. The Nikkei 225 hit a six-month high, which followed a strong close on Wall Street yesterday, with the S&P 500 finishing just a whisker below a record closing peak. European stocks have opened lower with GER30 holding over 13,000 at 13,025 and the UK100 trades down around 6,200. AUDUSD edged out a two-day peak at 0.7188. Australian July employment data showed a forecast-smashing 114,700 rise in the headline, while the June figure was revised higher, though lockdowns across the country are now blighting the immediate outlook. USDCAD settled just above Wednesday’s six-month low at 1.3227.



Sterling is trading mixed, edging out a two-day high at 1.3092 against the Dollar, while also gaining on the Yen and Aussie Dollar, but holding steady-to-softer versus the Euro and some other currencies. Yesterday’s preliminary UK Q2 GDP data showed a gargantuan 20.4% q/q contraction to confirm the technical definition of recession following Q1’s 2.2% shrink. The data wasn’t a surprise given the lockdown that was in place to varying degrees throughout the quarter. June GDP rose by 8.7% m/m, however, with June production data showing a robust rebound and beating expectations in the main headline readings, while high frequency data and a myriad of anecdotal evidence point to a strong rebound in the current quarter. The government’s furlough scheme has greatly limited the impact on the employment market. We have been talking down the Pound, to a degree, having seen limited scope for the currency to sustain its recent patch of outperformance. The BoE last week delivered a warily-upbeat outlook, though with localized lockdowns and most media doing their utmost to maintain maximum fear of a second wave of coronavirus infections, we take a circumspect view of the outlook over the coming months, anticipating a plateauing in economic rebound momentum. Manchester, Preston, Bradford and Aberdeen are back in lockdown and there is a number of new travel restrictions with other countries. The furlough scheme will end in late October, which is likely to trigger a wave of job losses, particularly in the airline, retail and hospitality sectors.

FX Update – August 14 – USD Consolidates at lows.



EURUSD, H4

The main currencies have settled in narrow ranges, with the Dollar consolidating above yesterday’s lows after a two-day decline. The USDIndex (DXY) has steadied in the lower 93.0s, above yesterday’s one-week low at 92.93. EURUSD has concurrently reached a stasis in the lower 1.1800s, below Thursday’s one-week peak at 1.1865. The pair has been in a strong uptrend since early May, producing last week’s 27-month high at 1.1917, though upside momentum has flagged over the last two weeks. The advent of the 750 bln Euro recovery fund and the fact that Europe has come through the pandemic ahead of the US have been underpinning EURUSD, along with the perception that the Fed is strategically being less attentive to inflation risks, which pushed real Treasury yields deep into negative territory. This dynamic looks to be shifting in certain aspects, which may curtail EURUSD’s uptrend. New coronavirus cases are dropping in sun states as community immunity builds up, having already done so in other parts of the US, while high frequency data and the July employment report are evidencing rebounding economic activity.



Elsewhere today, USDJPY has been plying a narrow range below yesterday’s three-week high at 107.06. Cable has settled near 1.3050, holding well within the broadly sideways range that’s been seen over the last week. Ditto for AUD-USD, which has been making time near the 0.7150 mark.

Events to Look Out for This Week.




As the month of August moves into week 3, uncertainties both fresh and familiar keep challenging the markets, driving volatility in the bond market as rates bounce off record lows and stock markets consolidate. The cooling worries over the second wave of the viral pandemic, and continuing US-China frictions, even as talks are due to resume and the impasse over a new US stimulus bill all expected to hold in the week ahead.
Have a look at the most important events of the coming days in our usual weekly publication.

Tuesday – 18 August 2020

RBA Meeting Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30) – No surprises from the RBA in their last meeting are expected, the cautious “do all we can” prose is likely to continue. Lowe talked of interest rate hikes not being on the cards for at least 3 years this week.

Building Permits & Housing Starts (USD, GMT 12:30) – Permits are expected to show a rise to 1.30 million form 1.258 million last month whilst Starts are expected to decline from 1.186 million to 1.70 million, overall this would still show a resilient US housing market.

Wednesday – 19 August 2020

FOMC Minutes (USD, GMT 18:00) – The Federal Open Market Committee minutes ability to shock have lost the power they once had, however, they remain the key documented account of the discussions that take place (on-line) between the decision makers of the FED. Watch for the tone of the talk of recovery, any reference to negative interest rates (even a reference would be something), the spectre of inflation and the on-going issues with the yield curve.

Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 06:00) – The headline CPI for July is expected at a 0.6% July (y/y) and with a 1.4% core price rate, following June figures of 0.6% for the headline and 1.1% for the core.

OPEC – JMMC Meeting (All Day)

Thursday – 20 August 2020

US Weekly Claims (USD, GMT 12:30) – Following last week’s final breach of 1.0 million this week claims data will be eagerly watched to see if the decline continues.

German Consumer Confidence & PPI Data (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The German PPI & Consumer confidence will provide another key indicator to the recovery in German sentiment and prices. Last week the COVID cases showed a worryingly geographically widespread spike.

Friday – 21 August 2020

Markit PMI Composite (EUR, GMT 07:30) – expected to show a decline to 50.3 from 54.9 last time.

UK Markit Services PMI (GBP GMT 08:30) – expected to show a decline from last month’s 56.5 to 55.9.

FX Update – August 18 – Dollar in the Doldrums.



USDIndex, H4 & Monthly



The Dollar has continued to weaken, which pushed the USDIndex (DXY) to a new 27-month low at 92.30. EURUSD correspondingly rose to a 12-day peak at 1.1943, and another 27-month peak. Cable rallied by 0.5% in making a 5-month high at 1.3198, while EURGBP reversed most of the gains it saw yesterday in making a 0.9035 low. AUDUSD pegged an 6-month high at 0.7252, and USDCAD descended to a 7-month low at 1.3155. Aside from the generally softer US Dollar, the Canadian currency has been buoyed by continued perkiness in oil prices. Yesterday the OPEC+ group said there was near full compliance on supply quotas amount members, lifting front-month WTI crude futures to a $42.99 peak, which is just over 50 cents shy of the five-month peak that was clocked in early August. In the mix has been a measure of Yen outperformance, with USDJPY ebbing to a 12-day low at 105.41 while EURJPY and AUDJPY drifted to respective six- and four-day lows, although both recouped losses during the London AM session.



In stock markets, yesterday’s tech-led rally on Wall Street inspired the MSCI Asia-Pacific index to rally to near to its pre-pandemic January high, while Europe’s STOXX 600 was showing a moderately 0.3% gain in early PM trading. The White House announced yesterday further restrictions on China’s Huawei, which are aimed at limiting the company’s access to commercially available chips and which has the potential to disrupt global supply chains. President Trump, meanwhile, stated that China is meeting its obligations under the Phase 1 trade deal, although a review of the deal has been delayed. Beijing announced that it will be making an anti-dumping inquiry on Australian wine imports. In focus is tomorrow’s publication of the minutes from the recent FOMC meeting, which comes amid market speculation that the Fed may adopt an average inflation target, specifically with the aim of pushing inflation above the 2% target. This has been a Dollar negative, as it has driven real Treasury yields deep into negative terrain.

US Equity markets have opened in positive tones on the back of strong quarterly earnings from key retailers Walmart and Home Depot, USA30 trades at today’s pivot point at 27,855, USA100 sits at 11,338 and the USA500 tests intra-day all-time highs at R1 level at 3391.

EURUSD holds 1.1900 gains.



EURUSD, H4

Eurozone HICP inflation was confirmed at 0.4% y/y, in line with the preliminary release. The uptick in the headline rate came despite the dampening impact of Germany’s temporary cut to the VAT rate. Energy prices also remain much lower than a year ago and core inflation lifted to 1.2% y/y in June from 0.8% y/y in the previous month.

Mixed signals then for the ECB, and while there may be nothing in the data to suggest a serious risk of deflation, the low headline rate will add to the arguments of those at the council who are pushing for a more symmetric inflation target that would require the ECB to let inflation run above target for a while following a period of below-target headline rates. In the current situation that would push the first rate hike even further into the future. A similar debate seems to be happening at the FOMC, which is currently also conducting a framework review.

EURUSD has settled off yesterday’s 27-month peak at 1.1965, concurrently with the USDIndex (DXY) consolidating recent losses above Tuesday’s 17-month low at 92.15. The softer dollar hypothesis, which has been dominant in markets for several months, is currently being challenged. Most incoming US data are showing a strong rebound in economic activity, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq equity indices have scaled to record highs. News that House Speaker Pelosi said that the Democrats are willing to trim their proposals has been taken as a positive, as it increases the odds that the Republicans and Democrats will break their stalemate and reach a deal on the next pandemic fiscal rescue package. July data showed an acceleration in homebuilding in the US to the most in almost four years. Coronavirus infections are now dropping sharply in the recently afflicted sun states, such as Arizona, Texas and Florida, indicating the downward phase of a classic Gompertz curve progression of respiratory illness as community immunity builds up.

In focus is today’s publication of the minutes from the recent FOMC meeting, which comes amid market speculation that the Fed may adopt an average inflation target, specifically with the aim of pushing inflation above the 2% target. This has been a dollar negative, as it has driven real Treasury yields deep into negative terrain. Any confirmation of this would bolster the softer dollar hypothesis, and likely push EURUSD above 1.2000, while any lack of reference to this issue would have an inverse effect. The advent of the 750 bln Euro recovery fund, which has reduced perceived EU break-up risks, and the fact that Europe has come through the pandemic ahead of the US (having been impacted earlier), have also been underpinning factors of EURUSD.

Events to Look Out for This Week.




Moving into a new week, the focus is now squarely on 2 days Jackson Hole Symposium. Uncertainty over the virus and recovery front, on the EU-UK trade negotiation front and center US-China tensions remain the major drivers of the market.
Have a look at the most important events of the coming days in our usual weekly publication.

Tuesday – 25 August 2020

German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – German IFO business confidence is expected to improve to 91.7 following the stronger than expected July reading, when the headline climbed to 90.5 from 86.3.

Consumer Confidence (USD, GMT 14:00) – Consumer confidence is expected to rise to 94.0 from 92.6 in July, versus a 6-year low of 85.7 in April. This compares to an 18-year high of 137.9 in October of 2018 and a recession-low of 25.3 in February of 2009. The expectations index should rise to 93.6 in August from 91.5. All of the available confidence measures were oscillating near historic highs before being crushed by COVID-19, and even with recent drop-backs, it’s remarkable how firm the consumer measures have stayed relative to prior recessions.

Wednesday – 26 August 2020

Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to rise 4.0% in July with a 12% bounce in transportation orders, after a 7.6% headline orders climb in June that included a 20.2% transportation orders surge. The durable good orders rise ex-transportation is pegged at 1.1%. Defense orders should bounce by 19%, following a -16.8% June drop. Boeing orders fell to zero planes from 1 in June. The vehicle assembly rate rose to 11.9 mln from 8.4 mln units in June, versus a 3.7 mln trough from the last recession in January of 2009. Durable good shipments should rise 6.0%, and inventories should fall -0.3%.

Thursday – 27 August 2020

Jackson Hole Symposium – DAY 1.

Gross Domestic Product (CHF, GMT 05:45) – In Switzerland GDP is expected to sink further to -8.0% q/q, after the 2.6% contraction seen in the first quarter.

Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) –We expect a boost in the -32.9% Q2 GDP figure to -32.4%, with hikes for consumption, wholesale inventories, imports, exports, nonresidential construction and residential construction and retail inventories, but trimmings for both equipment spending and factory inventories. The Q2 GDP data capture the powerful impact of mandatory closures, which left Q2 contraction rates of 20%-40% for most measures of demand, and larger 50%-65% declines for foreign trade.

Fed Chair Powell’s speech.

Friday – 28 August 2020

Jackson Hole Symposium – DAY 2.

Gross Domestic Product (CAD, GMT 12:30) – In Q1 Canada revealed a -8.2% pandemic driven drop after the revised 0.6% gain in Q4, with Q1 coming in a bit better than expected but still marking a hefty pull-back in activity as lockdown measures shuttered much of the economy in the second half of March. Indeed, March GDP plunged -7.2% (m/m, sa) after the 0.1% gain in February (was flat). Expectation is for a -40% plunge in Q2 as the economy is devastated by the lockdowns, even as the easing of those measures so far in May suggests that the economy bottomed out in April. A 25% bounce in GDP is penciled in for Q3.

Michigan Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – The Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index is expected to remain unchanged.

The Europe Brief.



The round of August confidence data has so far been mixed, as the services sector registers the fallout from lockdowns and the resurgence of new Covid-19 infections. Travel restrictions and new social distancing measures hit the services sector and consumer confidence especially in countries relying on tourism. Downside risks to the outlook continue to linger then, even as positive headlines on vaccines and treatment are offering a way out.

German Q2 GDPwas revised slightly higher with today’s release – to a still firmly negative -9.7% q/q, from -10.1% q/q reported initially. The breakdown not surprisingly showed a pretty broad based contraction, with only government consumption helping to dampen the blow. Private consumption meanwhile contracted -10.9% q/q and exports slumped -20.3%, versus a -16.0% q/q decline in imports as borders were closed and supply chains disrupted.

Beyond the temporary impact of lockdowns, the most worrying part of the report is the -19.6% q/q dip in equipment investment, which followed a -7.3% q/q decline in the previous quarter and could suggest that companies are not expecting a quick rebound.



The manufacturing sector at least continues to rebound and after a rise in Germany’s preliminary composite PMI German Ifo business confidence today that jumped to 92.6 in August, from 90.5 in July. A better than expected number, that registered a broad based improvement, especially in the current conditions indicator. The breakdown for the diffusion index, which gives the balance of positive and negative answers, showed services sentiment lifting to 7.8 from 2.1, while manufacturing improved to a still negative -5.4, from -12.1 in the previous month. All in all a broad based improvement that should go some way to restore confidence in the recovery especially against the background of positive headlines on Covid-19 vaccines and treatment.



The Eurozone August PMI (August 21) revealed a more mixed picture, however, in the preliminary release. Developments were uneven across countries with France more hit than Germany, although final readings will likely show that Spain and Italy suffered even more from the renewed restrictions for the services sector.

With inflation still at very low levels, central bankers have enough room to manoeuvre. Eurozone HICP inflation may have lifted slightly in July, although with the headline confirmed at 0.4% y/y in the final reading, it remains far below the ECB’s definition of price stability. Part of this is of course due to special factors, with energy prices still far below the levels seen last year and July readings also impacted by the dampening impact of Germany’s temporary cut to the VAT rate. Indeed, core inflation lifted to 1.2% y/y in July from 0.8% y/y in June, although even that is lower than the ECB would like to see.

ECB still debating inflation target

While there may be nothing in the inflation data to suggest a serious risk of deflation, the low headline rate will add to the arguments of those at the council who are pushing for a more symmetric inflation target that would require the ECB to let inflation run above target for a while following a period of below target headline rates. In the current situation that would push the first rate hike even further into the future. A similar debate seems to be happening at the FOMC, which – like the ECB – is also conducting a framework review. There is some speculation that Fed-chairman Powell will give some hint on average inflation targeting at the Jackson Hole conference, which in the past has been the stage for coordinated signals from central banks.

EUR continues to benefit from stimulus agreement

EURUSD has lifted to the mid 1.1800s today, posting an intraday peak at 1.1843, which is 60 pips up on Monday’s New York closing level. The Euro has also rallied against the Yen, which is the day’s biggest loser, and most other currencies. While a bout of general dollar selling has helped to lift EURUSD, there have concurrently been a couple of cues to buy euros, including the better than expected Ifo reading and optimistic comments from German finance minister Scholz.



Still the pair’s 5-month rally out of sub-1.0650 levels of mid March has been losing momentum in recent weeks, even it still produced new 27-month highs. Last week was the first down week the pair has seen out of the last nine weeks. A sustained correction is increasingly likely. The US is clearly through the worst of the pandemic, the economy is rebounding, Wall Street is on an record-breaking winning streak, and Treasury yields have perked up in recent sessions despite an expected dovish lean from Fed Chair Powell at his keynote address this Thursday.

The 11.2% July durable goods orders surge sharply exceeded estimates, following gains of 7.7% (was 7.6%) in June and 15.1% in May, led by increases of 35.6% for transportation after a 19.7% (was 20.0%) June rise, and a 30.0% rise for defense after a -16.7% (was -16.8%) June decline. Excluding transportation, orders rose 2.4% in July, following a 4.0% (was 3.3%) June gain.

The huge July orders gain marks a third straight monthly pop after two big pandemic drops in March and April.
For the equipment sector specifics, nondefense capital goods orders excluding aircraft were up 1.9%, following June’s 4.3% (was 3.3%) increase. Nondefense capital goods shipments ex-aircraft increased 2.4%, following the 3.8% (was 3.3%) gain in June. Inventories declined -0.5% following a -0.1% (was unchanged) June dip. The inventory-shipment ratio fell to 1.73 from 1.87.

Today‘s data may require an upward revision in our 30.5% Q3 GDP estimate. The June equipment data were revised upward while the June inventory data were revised modestly lower, leaving what appears to be net upward risk for our assumed upward Q2 GDP revision to -32.2% from -32.9%.

Today‘s report largely assures that we’ll see a GDP surge in Q3 that reverses most of the GDP decline reported in Q2.

Yields cheapened a bit on the durable goods beat, with a bear steepener still the play ahead of Fed Chair Powell’s Jackson Hole speech tomorrow. Concurrently, Equity futures are gyrating in a narrow range around unchanged levels. The 30-year bond was up 4 bps to 1.435%, but has notched back to 1.423%. The 10-year also was also about 3 bps cheaper at 0.719%. The just auctioned 2-year note is up 1 bp to 0.154%.

The US Dollar headed higher after the surge in durable orders, taking EURUSD to four-session lows of 1.1772 from near 1.1790 and USDJPY to 106.42 from 106.30.

While there are still widespread expectations that the FOMC will be shifting to an average inflation strategy, some chips are being taken off the table after last week’s rally as the FOMC minutes weren’t clear on the timing of the adoption. And KC Fed’s George said “it’s too soon to try to speculate on what else might be needed other than to say the Fed is going to be very vigilant.”

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

The “big” day.



With all eyes on Powell, FX markets traded within a narrow range overnight. GER30 and UK100 futures meanwhile are both up 0.1%, while US futures are slightly in the red after producing fresh record highs for the USA500 and USA100 yesterday, while most Asia stock markets have beaten a retreat.

The USA100 is holding above the latest near term support at 11,930. The technical picture remains strongly positive for Wall Street in general not only on risk appetite gains but also on tech stocks rally after the reports from Bloomberg that Amazon’s founder and Chief Executive Jeff Bezos has become the first billionaire in modern history to cross the $200 billion mark as the shares of his company rose to a new high. His wealth is now almost double that of the second richest person in the world, Microsoft founder Bill Gates,

Let’s turn back to the USA100 though, in which the “buying the deep” strategy has been seen so far in the near and medium term. Buying into near term weakness remains a viable strategy. Today will be an interesting session as depending upon the perceived level of dovishness of the speech, there could be a sizeable influx of volatility.



Fed Chair Powell’s Jackson Hole speech later today (Thursday) is much anticipated. The markets are looking for more of an update on the FOMC’s Framework Policy Review. The Fed has been discussing a shift in its inflation strategy to targeting an average price target, versus the 2% mark, which would allow an overshoot of price pressures to make up for the underperformance over the last decade. As suggested by the FOMC minutes and by KC’s George earlier today, not everyone on the Committee ascribes to this shift. Obviously there was no decision at the July 28, 29 meeting, though one is expected to be made at the September 15, 16 meeting.

Even though no one really expects the FOMC to even start to think about thinking about raising rates for a couple of years, any indication from Powell that there’s more opposition to a shift, or that an announcement won’t be made next month, won’t sit well with the markets.

Meanwhile, there is a risk markets will be disappointed as he may not yet be in a position to deliver in terms of specifics on inflation targeting changes or other policy rubrics. The FOMC hasn’t completed its framework review, and there are known differences of opinion among Committee members. Any sense of disappointment would likely catalyze a rebound in the USD.

FX Update – August 31 – The USD trend persists.



EURUSD, H1

The Dollar posted fresh trend lows against some currencies before recovering in low volume, (London is closed today) end-of-month re-balancing trades. The framework regime shift at the Fed, announced by Chairman Powell last week, effectively reaffirmed the dollar softening trend, concomitantly with shorter dated inflation-adjusted Treasury yields posting fresh lows. The yields on the 5- and 7-year real constant maturity Treasury notes were indicated on Friday at new seven-year-plus lows, at -1.40% and -1.26% respectively (down by a respective 15 bp and 11 bp from week-before levels). The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex (DXY) logged a new 27-month low at 92.11, and is set to rack August up as a fourth consecutive month of descent and the worst August for five years. EURUSD printed a high at 1.1938, which drew back in on the 27-month high seen a couple of weeks back at 1.1967. This puts the pair on course to make this the thirteenth up week that’s been seen out of the last sixteen weeks. For now, the softer dollar theme looks likely to remain in play. But there are forces that may weaken this trend. One is that incoming US data has been showing ongoing economic recovery in the US. Another is that the ECB is also considering average inflation targeting with the aim of increasing inflation expectations, which would presumably weigh on the Euro. The Eurozone’s economic recovery may also flatten as a consequence of renewed restrictions for hospitality and travel operators. This was the prime cause for preliminary August services PMI surveys missing consensus expectations. Governments in most European countries (Sweden being the main exception) remain somewhat trigger happy in imposing localised restrictions in response to upward flurries in positive coronavirus tests — even though there hasn’t been any significant correspondence of actual public health events (serious illness and associated hospitalisations and deaths). The death rate from all respiratory illnesses outside Covid-19 has been greater than for Covid itself for some time now, and all-cause mortality rates continue to trend below long-term averages.



Elsewhere, Cable posted a fresh eight-month peak at 1.3367 before retreating to 1.3332. AUDUSD lifted to a new trend peak at 0.7382, which is the loftiest level the pair has seen since December 2018. NZDUSD saw an eight-month high at 0.6740. USDCAD sank back below 1.3100 but remains shy of Friday’s seven-month low at 1.3045. Like other oil correlating currencies, the Canadian Dollar lost upside momentum as crude prices pared gains from the highs that were seen mid last week. Hurricane Laura wasn’t as disruptive to Gulf of Mexico crude production as feared. USDJPY is higher on the back of yen underperformance, rising to the lower 105.90’s, retracing some of the declines seen on Friday from levels near 107.00. AUDJPY, meanwhile, has lifted by over 0.7% but has remained short of last week’s 18-month peak. EURJPY, GBPJPY and other yen crosses have also lifted, but have also remained below recent highs.

Risks for UK Economy.



The markets continue to take a sanguine view of the apparently stalled progress in the EU and UK trade talks. All things Brexit continue to go down to the wire, and expectations for any real progress are low until much nearer the deadline, which is widely accepted as being the EU leaders’ summit in October. The consensus view is that a deal will be struck. There are grounds to doubt there can be anything other than a narrow deal, given the intransigence on the EU’s level-playing-field rules and fishing rights.

A bare-bones deal or a no-deal outcome are a risk.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s cabinet is full of Brexit ideologues; of the view that Brexit is an opportunity to craft the UK on the Singaporean model, as an outwardly-oriented, low-tax and pro-trade hub. Signing up to the EU’s level-playing-field rules is not consistent with this view, and there is only so far that the EU is likely to bend. The government, which has over four years on the electoral clock and a large majority in parliament, is in a position to weather the short-term economic damage that leaving the EU’s single market without a comprehensive new trade deal would cause. Note that when UK leaves the single market, it will not just be leaving free trade with the EU but also the 40 free trade deals the EU has across the globe.

Another risk is that the UK government’s pandemic-era furlough scheme will end in late October, which is likely to cause an upward jolt to the unemployment rate, with the aviation, high street retail and hospitality sectors to be hardest hit. The wage support scheme protected about 9.5 mln jobs at the height of the lockdown, though there remains up to 1.5 mln jobs at risk of being chopped in October, unless the government extends its support scheme (as Germany did with its plan last week).

Furthermore, today’s UK economic data releases, showed that employment in the manufacturing sector dropped at one of the steepest rates since the Great Recession 11 years ago.

The final UK August manufacturing PMI was revised a tick lower, to 55.2 in the headline reading versus 55.3 in the preliminary figure. The details showed production in the sector to be rising at its quickest pace since May 2014, while new orders rose by the fastest since November 2017. Export orders rose for the first time in 10 months. However employment was on the downside, while backlogs of work fell at an increased rate, too, which points to space capacity. Business sentiment for the year has ahead remained near the 28-month peak, with hopes being pinned on expectations for a return to economic normalcy.

The risk is that conditions will deteriorate as lockdown-caused work backlogs drop, and when the government wage support program expires in October as stated earlier, which will likely spark job losses (there is a chance that the scheme will be extended).

The final August services PMI survey will be released on Thursday. The government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out” scheme (with the government, courtesy of the bond market and eventually the taxpayer, meeting up to half the bill for consumers at restaurants and pubs from Monday to Wednesday during August) was partly behind the strength in activity in the service sector. The scheme, as of today, has now expired, which will likely lead to a weaker services PMI headline in the September survey. The service sector will be particularly exposed to a cut in the wage support scheme in October, with the aviation, high street retail and hospitality sectors most at risk.

As markets for now are taking a sanguine view of the trade talks and as there is a slight recovery in both the domestic and global economy from the more extreme phase of lockdowns that were seen earlier in the year, the UK currency remains well supported.



GBPUSD has risen above the 1.3470 level for the first time since April 2018. The pair has continued to be floated by broad US Dollar weakness. GBPJPY has also been lifted by Yen weakness, which saw the cross print 7-month highs yesterday. The Pound has fared less well against the Euro and other currencies. Among the mix of forces affecting the Pound is the coronavirus, which has ceased to be a public health event in terms of causing severe illness and associated hospitalizations and deaths. This being the case, regional UK governments remain somewhat trigger happy with regard to implementing localized lockdown measures in response to rises in new cases, and we can assume that this will only get worse going into the winter, the season of contagious respiratory illness.
