Market Update – October 18 – Stocks Rally; Pound Climbs; Truss Sorry.


eu_update_pic_nov18-1-696x391.jpg

  • USDIndex gets softer, breaking 112.00 floor and currently at 111.70. Treasuries gained ground though pared the rally into the close, richened though underperformed Gilts and European bonds. Much of the impetus again came from across the Pond after new UK Chancellor Hunt confirmed a complete U-turn on the government’s fiscal plan. The bull steepener saw the curve at -44 bps from -48 bps Friday.
  • A weaker than expected Empire State index has added to beliefs the FOMC’s tightening is cutting into growth and will ultimately lower inflation, hence slowing rate hikes down the road.
  • EUR – crossed 20-DMA and currently at 0.9850.
  • JPY – at 149.10 for the first time since August 1990.
  • 2022-10-18_08-17-16.jpg Stocks – US100 paced the surge, jumping 3.43%, while the US500 climbed 2.66%, back above Support level at 3700 (20-DMA), with the US30 up 1.86%. The UK100 was up as much as 1.47% before gains were trimmed to 0.90%. Bank of America’s Q3 earnings beat expectations, attributed to “resilient” US consumers (share price +6%). JPMorgan Chase reported smaller than expected drop in profits.
  • USOil – holds support at $85 amid softer USD and as Russia cuts supplies to Europe. – A weaker USD makes oil cheaper for non-US buyers.
  • Gold – $1660.
  • BTC – extends some gains from yesterday to $19534.
  • UK Chancellor Hunt announced overnight the scrapping of plans to cut income tax indefinitely & the plan to reduce the entry level tax will be shelved. Cuts to dividend tax rates and tourist VAT will be reversed as well. At the same time, the UK will shorten universal energy support to April 2023 and instead the government will look into more targeted support measures. Hunt warned that more difficult decisions are coming on spending in order to get finances under control and restore market trust in the UK economy. So far it has worked as the Gilt yield plunged 35 bps to 2.83%, the FTSE climbed to 6920, and Cable tested 1.1439 before dipping back to 1.1327 at the close.
  • The BOE is likely to delay the sale of 838 billions pounds of government bonds to encourage greater stability in gilt markets following Britain’s failed “mini” budget, the Financial Times reported on Tuesday.

Today – US Monthly Budget and EU ZEW. Earnings: J&J, Lockheed Martin, Netflix, etc.

Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) NZDUSD (+1.27%) topped to 0.5700 after hotter-than-expected CPI data. MAs aligned higher, MACD histogram & signal line extend northwards, RSI 71 but flattened. H1 ATR 0.00155, Daily ATR 0.0136.

Market Update – October 19 – Inflation hasn’t disappeared.


daily-market-update-696x364.png
  • USDIndex steady below 20-DMA at 112.20. Yields are rising and the rally in stocks is petering out, although ASX and Nikkei still managed to post modest gains and futures are up across Europe and the US. The 10-year Treasury rate has lifted 4.4 bp to 4.05% though and the Bund yield is up 1.1 bp at 2.3%.
  • EUR – holds Tuesday’s gains at 0.9830.
  • JPY – at 149.42 and eyeing the psychologically important 1.50 mark.
  • GBP – slightly below 1.1300 again. UK inflation higher than expected at 10.1% in September, versus 9.9% in August and compared to consensus expectations for a 10.1% y/y reading. RPI, still an important indicator for wage negotiations, lifted to 12.6% from 12.3%. Numbers will add to the arguments in favor of at least a 75 bp hike from the BoE in November.
  • 2022-10-19_10-28-38.jpg
  • Stocks – Stocks surged at the open, rising over 2%, but closed with gains of 1.13% on the US30, 1.16% on the US500 (back over 3700), and 0.90% on the US100. Some decent earnings news and hopes for more of the same (Netflix beat in after-hours release) helped underpin.
  • Netflix shares ticked up to the highest at $248.98 following results that beat consensus estimates: EPS: $3.10; Rev: $7.93B; Global Subscribers: +2.41 mil. The management ‘very optimistic’ regarding its new ad-supported plan. But later closed the day lower at $240.74.
  • USOil – dropped -2.67% to $83.18 after the White House confirmed additional supply of 10 to 15 mln barrels will be released from the SPR and natgas tumbled -4.77% to $5.71, the lowest close since July 7.
  • Gold – dropped to $1642.
Today – EU HICP, BoC Inflation and US Housing Starts & Building permits

Market Update – October 20 – 35th Anniversary Not Too Traumatic.


yield_1200x628-696x364.png

  • USDIndex rallies to 113 but currently steady. Yields jump near the highs of the session, and indeed multi-year peaks, with some impetus from higher than expected inflation out of the UK and Canada. Ongoing hawkish Fedspeak kept bond bears in control too. The break of 4.10% on the 10-year added to the selloff, as did a disappointing 20-year auction and a hefty corporate calendar.
  • Supply is pressuring the stock market with a corporate issuance and a 20-year auction hitting today. Lockheed Martin has a 5-tranche sale slated, including 3-, 5-, 10-, 32-, and 41-year maturities. Diageo Capital has a 3-, 5-, and 10-year offering on the calendar. Procter & Gamble and Nestlé reported lower sales volumes.
  • Stocks – Stocks closed in red as the US100, the tech heavy index, finished with a -0.85% loss, and the US500 was off -0.67%, with the US30 down -0.33%.
  • 2022-10-20_09-34-35.jpg
  • EUR – turns down to 20-DMA & below 0.9800.
  • JPY – held below 150 as BOJ announces unscheduled bond buying as key yield broke ceiling ($667 million in government debt).
  • GBP – under pressure at 1.1856. Britain’s interior minister Suella Braverman resigned criticising Liz Truss. This reflects the continued erosion of the PM’s authority after just weeks in the job. 1922 Committee meets today!
  • USOil – climbed 3.55% to $85.76, ignoring the White House’s announcement of an additional 15 mln barrels of oil to be released from the SPR. Nat gas slumped another -5.24% to $5.44.
  • Gold – extends lower! Currently at $1629 area.

Today – EU Aug. current account, US Oct. Philly Fed index & Sep. existing homes. Earnings: Ericsson, ABB, Akzo Nobel, Nordea, Volvo, Danaher, Philip Morris, AT&T, Barclays etc.

2022-10-20_09-39-45.jpg

Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) EURCHF spiked to 0.9840. MAs aligned higher, MACD histogram & signal bullishly crossed, RSI 69 & rising. H1 ATR 0.00087, Daily ATR 0.00641.

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

Market Update – November 3 – FED – Slower Hikes but for Longer.


daily-market-update-696x364.png
  • The FOMC rose rates by the as expected 75bp (4th consecutive hike to 14-year highs) and suggested lower rate hikes – “time to reassess pace of rate hikes is coming” – (50bp into Dec and 25bp into Q123) but perhaps for longer, “very premature to think about pausing.” Also suggesting a higher terminal rate, (5.1%) and then Powell re-iterated that “we have some ways to go until inflation is defeated.” USD and Stocks whipsawed wildly on the two-edged communication. Also this week jobs market remains HOT, JOLTS were better & ADP at 239K was 23% over expectations – so today’s claims and tomorrow’s NFP will be key.
  • USDIndex – Dived to 110.25 on initial headline, but trades 1.8% higher now at 112.23. US Stocks rallied and then tanked lower into close (NASDAQ -3.36% underperformed again). 10-yr yields flirted under 4.0% but hold at 4.06%, and the 2-10yr yield curve remains the most inverted (and therefore most recessionary in 22 years). Asian markets weaker and EUR futures flat.
  • Overnight – AUD Services PMIs better than expected (49.3) & Chinese Service PMIs worse than expected (48.4) both still in contraction.
  • EUR – from a spike to 0.9980 has dropped to 0.9780 now.
  • JPY – dipped to 145.80 but now trades at 147.85.
  • GBP – Sterling lifted to 1.1560 on the immediate FED announcement before Powell press conference took it to 1.1340 now. Today the Bank of England is expected to follow FED with a 75bp interest rate hike (biggest in 33 years and taking rates in UK to 3%)
  • Stocks – Wall Street were lower with big moves for Tech stocks (AMZN -4.83%, GOOG -3.79%) in particular. US500 closed -96.08 (-2.50%) at 3756, FUTS trades at 3762 now.
2022-11-03_08-41-55.jpg
 
  • USOil – rallied from $87.75 lows yesterday up to $90.00, after inventory draw-down of -3.1m vs 0.2m. Prices have now dipped to $89.00.
  • Gold – from a spike to $1670 yesterday, trades at week lows at $1630 today.
  • BTC – slipped from $20.5k, pivot back to test 20k earlier back to 20.2k now.
Today – Swiss CPI, EZ Unemployment, US Weekly Claims, Services PMI, Factory Orders & ISM Services, Norges Bank & BoE Policy Announcements, Speeches from BoE’s Bailey & Mann, ECB’s Lagarde, de Cos, Panetta & Elderson. Earnings – Rolls-Royce, Sainsbury’s, ING, BNP, Stellantis, Euronext, ConocoPhillips, Starbucks, PayPal & Moderna.

Market Update – November 8 – US Midterms Election Day.


eu_update_pic_nov18-1-696x391.jpg
  • The USD Index slipped further to test 110.00 yesterday, a -2.65% decline from Thursday’s high at 113.00, trades at 110.25 today. Stocks rallied another +1.00%, Yields moved higher again (10-yr 4.163%) and the Commodity Complex cooled from Fridays rally as Beijing reaffirmed its strict pandemic rules. Overnight the Crypto Complex has tanked with BTCUSD down from $21k to under $19.5k.
Markets are pricing in a “lame-duck” President Biden for the final 2-yrs of his administration as Republicans are likely to take control of the House of Representatives, with likely curbs on the debt ceiling, spending cuts and action to support energy companies, as inflation bites into businesses and households. A loss of the Senate too for President Biden would completely restrict any political actions regarding immigration, additional support for Ukraine and environmental policies. TRUMP “Big announcement” November 15.
 
  • EUR – continued to rally yesterday and breached the hugely psychological parity 1.0000 level.
  • JPY – dipped to 146.10 lows from 147.50 and remains capped by 147.00 today.
  • GBP – Sterling rallied over 200 pips again yesterday from 1.1300 to over 1.1540, but has since sunk below 1.1500.
  • Stocks – Wall Street closed higher, tech led again META +6.53%, (job cuts) GOOG & MFST over +2.2% and TSLA –5.01%. US500 closed +36.25 (+0.96%) at 3806, FUTS trades at 3808 now.
2022-11-08_08-38-37.jpg

  • Gold – once again tested Friday’s close at $1680 before drifting to $1675 into close and $1670 now.
  • BTC – drifted from $21.2k, top Monday to $20.5k at close, before tankingto $19.3k lows today as FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried and Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao trade allegations. It traces back to FTT coin, which is FTX’s token and a report from CoinDesk that says Bankman-Fried’s trading company Alameda Research has about $6 billion of its $14.6 billion assets in the coin, which his other company created.¹
Today – EZ Retail Sales, US Midterms, Speeches from BoE’s Pill (x2), Fed’s Williams, ECB’s Nagel & SNB’s Jordan.

daily-market-update-696x364.png
  • The USD Index slipped further to test 109.20 yesterday, and trades at 109.60, at today. Stocks moved higher again (DOW +1.00%) and Yields held at recent highs. The Crypto Complex has tanked with BTCUSD down from $20.5k to under $16.8k, lows before recovering, as leading crypto exchange FTX was forced to sell out to rival Binance. Asian shares have slipped too (Nikkei -0.56%, Hang Seng -1.88%). Chinese Inflation was mixed with CPI cooling to 2.5% from 2.4% but PPI -1.3% vs -1.5%.
Mid Term election results are suggesting a win for the Republicans in the House (but not the Red Wave landslide some had predicted) while the Senate remains very close with a key win in Pennsylvania for the Democrats. A gridlocked Washington, even if the Democrats hold-on to control in the Senate, which many assume will be beneficial for stock-markets and see a weaker USD appears to be the most likely outcome.

  • JPY – dipped again breaching 146.00 to 145.25 lows and trades at 145.85.

  • Stocks – Wall Street rallied over 1.75% from open, gave up all their gains and then clawed back 0.5-1.0%. Big movers included COIN -10.78%, LYFT -22.9% and TSLA -2.93% (Musk sold $3.95bn shares). US500 closed +21 (+0.56%) at 3828, FUTS trades at 3827 now.
2022-11-09_08-39-11.jpg

  • Gold – spiked from $1665 lows, over $1680 and $1700 resistance to trade at $1710.
  • BTC – crashed to $16.8k from $20.5k, before recovering to $18.3k now. FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried was forced to sell his exchange to rival Binance as a run on FTT coin, which is FTX’s token and Bankman-Fried’s trading company Alameda Research. The company was valued at $32b at the beginning of 2022.

Market Update – November 14.


daily-market-update-696x364.png
  • The USD Index closed at 106.389 but had tumbled to a low of 106.28 from an overnight high of 108.44. It’s down from 112.93 on the November 3 FOMC day. Stocks extended gains at the Friday close with another solid session, albeit in choppy action amid worries over the bankruptcy of FTX. Yields – 10-year Treasury yield is up 6.7 bp at 3.88%, EGB yields are correcting from the highs seen on Friday, however the ECB remains on course to tighten rates beyond neutral and start QT next year.
  • EUR – above parity at 1.0320.
  • JPY – sideways at 139.50.
  • GBP – turned below 1.1800.
  • Stocks  US100 to a 1.88% surge, while the US500 was up 0.92%. The US30 edged up 0.1%. The components of the US500 were mixed but a 3% pop in energy and a 2.46% jump in consumer discretionary sectors helped overcome losses in health care and utilities. Today, stocks struggled a bit and corrected some of last week’s gains, although China bourses got a boost from official directives aimed at supporting the ailing property sector, which added to the slight easing of virus restrictions that were announced last week. Hang Seng and CSI 300 are currently up 1.8% and 0.2% respectively, after Nikkei and ASX closed with losses of -1.1% and -0.2%, weighed down by financials data. GER40 and UK100 futures are up 0.2% and 0.1%.
  • Reuters reported that Chinese regulators have told financial institutions to extend more support to property developers to shore up the struggling real estate sector.
  • USOil – at $88.40.
  • Gold – had its best week since March, currently holds gains at 1763.
  • BTC – slipping into the $16,000 area again.

Market Update – November 16 – Risk aversion picked up.


eu_update_pic_nov18-1-696x391.jpg
  • The USDIndex’s safe-haven gains fizzled and held at the low 106.00 area. Yields had plunged on the PPI data, but 5-year closed at 3.890%, the 2-year at 4.326%, and the 10-year at 3.772%, respectively. Stocks supported by cooler PPI but pressured afterwards as news of a Russian-made missile strike in Poland sparked fears of heightened geopolitical tensions. US President Biden who said the missile was unlikely to have been fired by Russia helped to calm nerves.
  • EUR – retests once again the 1.040.
  • JPY – holds at 139.50, while Risk-sensitive Antipodeans, AUDUSD is up at 0.6782, and NZDUSD at 0.6175. Australian wages boasted the largest rise in a decade last quarter as a super-tight labour market finally made itself felt, raising the risk of further rate hikes.
  • GBP – steady at 1.1860 – UK CPI jumped to 11.1% y/y in October from 10.1% y/y in the previous month. Core inflation failed to decelerate as anticipated and held steady at 6.5% y/y.
2022-11-16_10-40-52.jpg
 
  • Stocks – closed in the green with gains of 1.45% on the US100, 0.87% on the US500, and 0.17% on the US30. But they are well off of early highs where the future showed the US100 knee-jerking nearly 3% on the data, while the US500 was up 1.9%, with the US30 up over 1.1%. Better than expected earnings/guidance from Walmart and hopes for a bounce in Chinese growth supported too.
  • USOil – at $85.95
  • Gold – jumps to 1787, but steady so far today.
Today: US Retail Sales and Canadian Inflation along.

Market Update – November 17 – “Recession is a threat”.


daily-market-update-696x364.png
Recession is a threat, as suggested by the inverted yield curve, and some recent earnings reports, including Target today, reflect the various headwinds hitting the economy. Geopolitical risks from Ukraine are lingering too.
 
  • The USDIndex’s steady 106.25 after ranging from 105.34 to 107.10. (heavy data calendar saw stronger than expected retail sales, weaker than forecast industrial production, with a further big drop in the NAHB) Yields close lower with, 10-year yield down 13 bps at 3.669%, after a high of 3.84%. The 30-year was 12.5 bps lower at 3.837%. The curve inversion deepened further to -68 bps, not seen since early 1981. Stocks
  • Fed’s Waller: “more comfortable considering stepping down to a 50 bp hike“. But he added he will not be making that decision until he sees more data. Waller has been one of the most hawkish on the FOMC so these remarks are significant. VS Fed Daly repeated a pause in hikes is off the table for now and reiterated Chair Powell’s comment that it is not even a point of discussion currently, in a CNBC interview.
  • EUR – choppy at 20-day SMA. Bloomberg source story effectively confirmed that the ECB will slow its tightening cycle and deliver a 50 bp move in December.
  • JPY – holding below 140, but there is speculation that the correction in the dollar is running out of steam
  • AUDUSD holds gains above 0.6700 – Australia’s unemployment rate unexpectedly declined to 3.4%, employment lifted to a record high and part time employment declined. More signs of a tight labour market that will add to inflation concerns, especially after higher than expected data on wage growth yesterday.
2022-11-17_09-31-10.jpg
 
  • Stocks –Wall Street ended in the red with weakness concentrated in the US100 and the US500 following a very poor earnings report from Target. Nikkei and ASX closed narrowly mixed. PBOC warned that inflation may go higher as demand pickes up, with Hong Kong tech stocks most hit, by comments that dented hopes of further sizeable support from the central bank and Beijing officials for the economy. GER40 and UK100 are up 0.4% and 0.1% respectively.
  • USOil – Energy weighed on the USOIL prices fell -1.88% to $85.29.
  • Gold – drifted to $1760 on USD strength and pick up of Treasury yields.
Today: UK Autumn Statement, US Housing Stats & Building Permits.

Market Update – November 18 – Tough talks to rescue Dollar?


eu_update_1200x628-e1567669197104-696x339.png
 
  • USDIndex peaked to 107.20 but it lost altitude into the close, now at 106.40. The hawkish outlook from the Fed’s Bullard weighed on bonds and stocks, though the markets managed to pare losses late in the day. Bullard stressed that the funds rate needs to go higher and into restrictive territory and suggested a worst case scenario of 7%. Yields – 10-year climbed to 3.80% before dipping to 3.767%.
  • Stocks –choppier but was generally underwater due to the Fed outlook, recession fears, and ongoing geopolitical risks. But losses were trimmed, leaving the US100 down -0.35%, the US500 off -0.31%, and the US30 fractionally lower.
2022-11-18_09-34-15.jpg
 
  • EUR – choppy at 1.038, struggling to break 200-day SMA.
  • JPY – holding below 140.
  • GBP – holds above 1.1900, as UK retail sales rebounded in October. However, Sales are down more than 6% on the year on both measures and the data are a flagging the impact inflation and the erosion of real disposable income are having on overall activity. GDP already contracted in the third quarter of the year and the fourth quarter is likely to be worse. Chancellor Hunt did his best to sell his budget as measured and appropriate, but the prospect of a rising tax burden just as mortgage costs are on a steep incline will hit consumption and overall growth further.
  • USOil – down -5% to $81.20, impacted by the stronger dollar earlier, as well as on fears a recession will crimp demand along with signs that supply chains are easing.
  • Gold – down to $1760 on very hawkish Bullard.
Today: ECB’s President Lagarde, German Buba President Nagel & BoE’s Haskel speeches
