    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 16th February 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: Stock markets mostly moved higher in Asia, after another positive close on Wall Street. China and Hong Kong alongside other markets were closed for Lunar New Year holidays, which muted trading, but the Nikkei gained 1.19%, while the ASX lost early gains and closed with a marginal loss of -0.08%. The yen continued to advance and 10-year JGB’s dipped -0.8 bp to 0.049%, as Kuroda was nominated to lead the BoJ for another five year term. 10-year Treasury yields declined -0.5 to 2.904% and oil prices picked up slightly, with the March Nymex future trading at USD 61.51 per barrel.Kuroda officially nominated for second term as BoJ governor. As widely expected Abe nominated Kuroda to stay another five years and reports that Waseda University professor Wakatabe, along with BoJ Executive Director Amamiya, will take the deputy governor roles were also confirmed. The nominations were sent to the steering committee of parliament’s lower house and will have to be confirmed by both houses of parliament. Wakatabe is known for advocating “bolder monetary easing” and Amamiya has worked closely with Kuroda. The move should ensure another five years of monetary stimulus from the BoJ and is likely to have underpinned the dip in 10-year BoJ yields today.

    FX Update: Another day, another decline in the dollar, which logged a new 38-month low versus the euro, at 1.2554, and a 15-month low against the yen, at 105.54. The USD index (DXY) is down by 0.3%, 88.37, earlier clocking a 37-month low at 88.33. The greenback has also seen fresh lows against most newly developed and developing world currencies. Continued gains in global stock markets have continued to inspire dollar selling, as investors seek out higher yielding opportunities. USDJPY declines came despite the nomination of Kuroda for another term at the helm of the BoJ, along with nominations for the two deputy governor positions of inflationist candidates, Amamiya and Wakatabe.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 19th February 2018.




    Main Macro Events This Week

    Inflation fears have consumed the markets this year, and especially in recent sessions. And price dynamics will remain a major focal point going forward since they are a key to central bank policy decisions, which in turn are crucial factors for the markets. Of course the other necessary input for central bankers, as well as the markets, is growth. And there will be plenty of data on both of those elements from around the globe this week, along with Fedspeak and the minutes from the latest FOMC and ECB policy meetings, to add insight.

    United States:In the U.S., the markets are closed Monday for Presidents’ Day. But when action resumes, it will be all about inflation and what it means to the Fed outlook. Most of this month’s major reports on prices are out of the way, but the Fedspeak calendar is heavy and will provide the markets their first real chance to hear what policymakers have to say on both the inflation and growth fronts. Most crucial, perhaps, will be Fed’s written Monetary Policy Report on Friday ahead of Chairman Powell’s February 28 testimony. Also on tap are the FOMC minutes to the January 30, 31 meeting. As for supply, the Treasury is selling $258 bln combined in bills, coupons, and an FRN. Data is thin with just January existing home sales, the Markit PMIs, and initial jobless claims. The FOMC’s release of the Monetary Policy Report (Friday, 11 ET) could be the most important event of the week. This will be the first major action coming out of the new Powell Fed. Fedspeak since last month’s meeting has shown policymakers believing further tightening will be appropriate. In the January policy statement, the markets zeroed in on the Fed’s inclusion of the word “further,” which Dudley later clarified it was meant to show the Fed had more confidence in the economy. Look for a lot of talk about the economic implications from tax reform, wheree Committee is expected to take a cautiously optimistic view on growth, with some concern that a boost to output could push inflation pressures higher.

    This week’s data highlights include January existing home sales and weekly initial jobless claims. Home sales (Wednesday) are expected to slide 0.9% to a 5.520 mln clip, after December’s 3.6% drop to 5.570 mln. Initial jobless claims (Thursday) for the February 17 week will be scrutinized at it coincides with the BLS survey week. Also on tap this week are January leading indicators (Thursday) and the February Markit PMIs.

    Canada: In Canada, the markets are closed Monday for the Family Day holiday. The data docket provides the final ingredients for the December GDP projection, with wholesale sales (Tuesday) and retail sales (Thursday) due out this week. The CPI (Friday) projected to rebound 0.4% m/m in January after the 0.4% drop in December. The CPI should slow to a 1.5% y/y pace from 1.9% y/y thanks to an easy comparison with an elevated January of 2017, which was when CPI jumped 0.9% m/m and expanded at a 2.1% clip due to sharply higher energy prices. Average weekly earnings (Friday) are seen rising 0.3% m/m in December after the 0.6% bounce in November.

    Europe: The ECB is still pumping cash into the economy and likely to do so until the end of the year. And, rate hikes are unlikely to be on the agenda until Q2 next year at the earliest. So, the markets still have a long time to adjust to the changing environment. Nevertheless, with ECB’s net asset purchases likely coming to an end this year, Eurozone peripheral bond markets, along with stocks, are likely to remain twitchy as long yields slowly but steadily trend higher. Eurogroup and Ecofin meetings (Monday) aside, the week also bring the release of the minutes to the January council meeting (Thursday), which will be scrutinized for indications of how far the ECB’s discussions about the expected change in guidance have progressed. A growing number of council members expected to argue for a change in language as the ECB heads toward the March meeting, which will also include updated staff projections.

    Data releases focus on confidence readings for February. The German ZEW Investor Sentiment (Tuesday) expected to dip to 19.0 from 20.4 in January. The February Eurozone manufacturing PMI (Wednesday), meanwhile, is seen falling to 59.4 from 59.6, while the services reading slips to 57.8 from 58.0. Those should leave the composite at 58.5, down from January’s 58.8. Finally the February German Ifo Business Climate (Thursday) is expected to correct to 117.4 from 117.6 in January. Though all are seen posting slight declines, the indices will nevertheless remain at very high levels.The second reading of German Q4 GDP (Friday) is expected to confirm the preliminary growth rate of 0.6% q/q. And with confidence indicators remaining at high levels, the picture is still one of ongoing robust growth going forward. Final Eurozone HICP inflation (Friday), meanwhile should be confirmed at just 1.3 % y/y, with core inflation at just 1.0% y/y, far below the ECB’s 2% target. So, the data will provide something for both the hawks and the doves to argue over.

    UK: The data calendar is relatively busy this week, highlighted by the February CBI surveys on industrial trends and the retail sales (Tuesday and Thursday, respectively), labor data coving December and January (Wednesday), and the second estimate of Q4 GDP (Thursday). Brexit negotiations, now very much at the sharp end, will continue this week. The EU’s chief negotiator Barnier on Friday clarified that the UK’s red lines meant that a Swiss or Norway type model would be out of the question, affirming, once again, that the British government’s have-cake-eat-it approach (maintaining access to the single market without observing the EU’s four freedom of movement pillars for goods, services, capital and people) is simply out of touch with reality.

    Japan: In Japan, the December all-industry index (Wednesday) should rise 1.4% m/m versus the 1.0% November increase. January CPI (Friday) is seen accelerating to 1.4% y/y from 1.0% overall, and up 0.9% y/y on a core basis, unchanged from December’s clip. January services PPI (Friday) is penciled in at an unchanged 0.8% y/y.

    Australia: the wage price index (Wednesday) is expected to rise 0.5% in Q4 (q/q, sa) after the identical 0.5% gain in Q3. Wage growth is projected at 2.0% y/y in Q4 after the 2.0% pace in Q3. Construction work done (Wednesday) is anticipated to pull-back 12.0% after the 15.7% bounce in Q3 (q/q, sa). Reserve Bank of Australia Assistant Governor (Financial System) Bullock appears at the Responsible Lending and Borrowing Summit, Sydney (Tuesday). The minutes to the RBA’s February meeting will be released Tuesday.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 21st February 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: 10-year Bund yields are down -1.1 bp at 0.717%, following on from broad corrections in Asian long yields overnight, while the 10-year Treasury yield is up 0.2 bp at 2.891%. The 2-year Schatz yield is down -0.6 bp at -0.522%, leaving the curve flatter from the long end, but amid the temporary set backs, the longer uptrend in long yields continues. European stock futures meanwhile are heading south, while U.S. futures are moving higher, after a largely positive session in Asia overnight, where the Hang Seng outperformed.Japanese equity markets fluctuated between gains and losses after Wall Street closed in the red and the Topix closed with a loss of -0.05%, while the Nikkei managed a gain of 0.21% as a weaker yen bolstered exporters. European data releases today include Eurozone preliminary PMI readings for February as well as U.K. labour market data and public finance numbers.

    FX Update: The dollar has remained buoyant, led by gains in USDJPY, which lifted for a fourth straight session in logging a four-session high of 107.90, extending the rebound from the 15-month low seen last Thursday at 105.54.

    Eurozone February’s PMIs – The February Eurozone manufacturing PMI, is seen falling to 59.3 from 59.6, while the services reading slips to 57.6 from 58.0. Those should leave the composite at 58.5, down from January’s 58.8.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd February 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: Long yields moved higher across Asia, after yesterday’s correction, thus putting fresh pressure on stock markets. The 10-year JGB yield is up 0.1 bp at 0.046%, other markets under-performed, but the 10-year Treasury yield is down -1.1 bp at 2.939%. Investors fretted over the Fed’s upbeat assessment of the economy as the FOMC minutes saw risks roughly balanced, but mentioned increased upside risks to the near term. U.S. futures are heading south, after a mixed session in Asia. Mainland China bourses rallied in catch up trade and the CSI 300 is up 1.99%, while Nikkei and Hang Seng corrected markedly and the ASX closed with a modest gain of 0.12%. The Topix meanwhile lost -0.88%, the Nikkei -1.07% and the Hang Seng also nearly 1%. The yen strengthened against the dollar and oil prices slipped back with the front end WTI future trading at USD 61.07 per barrel.

    FX Update: FOMC minutes showed a majority saw stronger growth in the economy and agreed a gradual rate hike approach was still appropriate. Indeed, a number of policymakers raised their growth forecasts since the December meeting and saw upside risks to growth. However, officials noted “few signs of a broad-based pickup in wage growth.” And “almost all” do expect inflation to reach to the 2% goal. Several members did caution about financial market imbalances. The report supports expectations for a 25 bp tightening in March, but of course doesn’t settle the issue of 2 or 4 rate hikes this year, which is dependent on the data reflecting the economy and inflation. Fed funds futures are little changed after the FOMC minutes, but are paring small losses earlier, in tandem with the slide in nominal yields. The minutes didn’t really tell us anything new. But the futures were primed for a slightly more hawkish tone.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * German IFO – expected to correct to 117.0 from 117.6 in January, with the risk to the downside after the sharper than expected corrections in PMI readings.

    * UK GDP Data – unrevised GDP data for Q4 last year, anticipated at 0.5% q/q and 1.5% y/y.

    * ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts – will be scrutinised for indications of how far the ECB’s discussions about the expected change in guidance have progressed. It is widely anticipated that a growing number of council members will be arguing for a change in language as the ECB heads toward the March meeting, which will also include updated staff projections.

    * Canadian Retail Sales – Retail sales are expected to dip 0.3% m/m in December on the heels of the tepid 0.2% gain in November.

    * US Unemployment Claims and Oil Inventories – U.S. initial jobless claims are expected to hold at 230k in the BLS survey week, versus the week-ended February 10. Continuing claims are expected to fall 12k to 1,930k

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 27th February 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: Yields dipped in Asia. 10-year rates are down -1.0 bp in South Korea after the central bank left policy on hold. 10-year JGBs are down -0.5 bp at 0.032%, 10-year Treasury yields fell back -0.4 bp to 2.859%, after initially trying to move higher. Eurozone peripheral markets are outperforming and European stock futures are higher, after a mixed session in Asia, where markets in Hong Kong and mainland China sold off, while Topix and Nikkei closed with solid gains. U.S. futures are heading south, however, and the stock rally that was fuelled by hopes that central banks will slow the withdrawal of support, is starting to stutter ahead of Powell’s testimony that is hoped to give a clearer guidance on the outlook. Draghi continued to sit on the fence yesterday and we expect Powell’s comments to be also rather balanced. Today’s local calendar focuses on German inflation numbers and Eurozone ESI economic confidence.

    FX Update: The dollar majors have posted narrow ranges so far today as many market participants sit on their hands into the Congressional testimony of the new Fed chairman, Powell. USDJPY has held a narrow range, logging a high of 107.10 before settling in the upper 106.00s, holding comfortably within yesterday’s range. EURUSD lifted to an intraday peak of 1.2342 before settling around 1.2330, leaving yesterday’s high at 1.2355 unchallenged. Regarding Powell, most Fed watchers, including ourselves, expect he will signal a gradualist approach to tightening, maintaining continuity in approach from his predecessor, Yellen. This expectation was cited in equity market summaries yesterday as justifying the strong close on Wall Street, though U.S. equity index futures have come off the boil in overnight trading, and stocks have been mixed in Asia, where Japan’s Nikkei 225 closed with a 1% gain but Chinese and some other markets have posted losses. The New Zealand dollar came under pressure after NZ trade data showed an unexpected deficit in January of NZ$ 566 mln. NZDUSD logged a two-session low of 0.7273.

    Charts of the Day

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 28th February 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: : Stock markets remained under pressure during the Asian session, as yields moved higher in the wake of Powell’s testimony yesterday and weaker than expected data out of China and Japan added to pressure. The 10-year Treasury yield is down from earlier highs, but remains up 0.7 bp on the day and sightly above the 2.9% mark. 10-year JGB yields are up 0.9 bp at 0.042%. Stock markets meanwhile got stung by the reminder that central banks are still on course to take out stimulus and Powell’s reference to the risk of overheating and the Nikkei closed with a loss of 1.44%, the Topix was down -1.23% at the close. Hang Seng and CSI 300 are down -1.46% and -0.62% respectively, as China’s official manufacturing PMI fell to 50.3 from 51.3 and Japan industrial production dropped -6.6% m/m. U.S. stock futures are also heading south as are UK100 futures and the front end WTI future is down on the day at USD 62.72 per barrel. The very busy data calendar today include German jobless numbers as well as Eurozone inflation numbers, the Swiss KOF and a German 10-year auction.

    German GfK consumer confidence dipped to 10.8 with March numbers from 11.0 in February. An unexpected correction after the surprisingly strong February numbers. The full details for February, show economic expectations falling back in tandem with income expectations and the willingness to buy, although the willingness to save turned even more negative. Overall readings remains at very high levels, like business confidence surveys, but suggest some levelling off which will back the arguments of the ECB doves for caution with regard to any changes in guidance.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * German Labour Data – Confidence readings may have fallen back more than expected in February, but preliminary PMI reports still suggested that companies remain sufficiently optimistic about the recovery to take on more staff and German jobless numbers expected to dip -15K in February, leaving the jobless rate unchanged at just 5.4%.

    * Eurozone Inflation – The Eurozone HICP for February was expected to show a headline rate of 1.2% y/y, but has a bias to the downside after yesterday’s preliminary readings from Spain and Germany. The former may have come in higher than expected, but the latter fell back more than anticipated. Still, the German numbers also suggested that much of the dip was due to base effects from energy and food prices, so the real focus will be on core inflation, rather than the headline rate and even German numbers suggest that could remain steady.

    * US Prelim GDP – a second release of Q4 GDP likely trimmed to 2.5% from 2.6%.

    European Fixed Income Outlook: :Asian bond yields mostly dropped, with the 10-year JGB down -0.8 bp at 0.035%, after dovish BoJ comments. The 10-year Treasury yield has stabilised, after yesterday’s slide and is trading at 2.86%. The dip in yields yesterday did nothing to boost stock market confidence and Wall Street closed with broad losses. The negative sentiment spilled over into Asian markets and Nikkei and Topix closed with losses of 1.56% and 1.59% respectively, and stocks were also under pressure in Hong Kong and Australia with materials and health care stocks leading the way. Mainland China bourses outperformed after a better than expected Caixin manufacturing PMI and the CSI 300 is up 0.42%. Markets remain nervous ahead of Powell’s hearing, after the Fed Chairman’s comments hit markets earlier in the week. Reports that Trump plans a 25% tariff on steel imports is adding to pressure. U.S. futures are mostly down, while oil prices are marginally higher on the day with the front end WTI future trading at USD 61.70 per barrel. Today’s calendar focuses on manufacturing PMI readings for the Eurozone, the U.K. and Switzerland. the U.K. also has lending data, the Eurozone jobless numbers and there are bond auctions in Spain and France.

    FX Update: The dollar has remained underpinned versus most currencies, bolstering to the USD index (DXY) to a five-week high of 90.74 and pushing EURUSD to a six-week low of 1.2183. AUDUSD has registered the biggest move in trade so far on the calendar day out of the currencies we track, showing a 0.4% decline, with the Australian dollar underperforming amid reports that Trump is set to announce a 25% tariff on U.S. steel imports. Australian is the world’s biggest export of iron ore, which is the base metal of steel. AUDUSD logged a two-month low at 0.7717, and AUDJPY, a cross that many consider is a forex market barometer of global investor risk appetite, has forayed into nine-month low terrain.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 2nd March 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: Long yields are mixed in Asia. 10-year JGBs trailed Treasuries and sold off, with the yield up 0.8 bp at 0.055%, while the 10-year Treasury yields jumped 2 bp to 2.83%. Yields headed south in Australia and New Zealand. The global stock market sell off meanwhile continued in Asia overnight, Nikkei and Topix lost 2.5% and 1.8% respectively, undermined by U.S. President Trump’s announcement of new tariffs in imported steel and aluminium, which together with a stronger yen weighed on exporters. The rise in long yields moved amid a drop in the jobless rate and a rise in Tokyo inflation added to pressure. U.S. futures are starting to stabilise, however, oil prices remain under pressure, with the front end Nymex future trading at USD 60.92 per barrel. In Europe,the 10-year Bund yield is down -2.1 bp at 0.616% as of 7:25GMT, extending opening losses after weaker than expected German retail sales and a dip in import price inflation at the start of the session. European stock futures are deeply in the red, after a sell off in Asia overnight. The local calendar still has the U.K. CIPS construction PMI as well as Eurozone producer price inflation.

    Fed Chairman Powell had been largely bullish, Fed’s Dudley later seemed at ease with 4 hikes and that didn’t help along with the tariff/trade concerns. Powell’s testimony included a lot of discussion was on the labor market, wages, and inflation. He did note at Tuesday’s hearing that there was still some slack in the system, but was the markets instead focused on his comments about keeping a gradual tightening posture in place to prevent the economy from “overheating,” as well as on his optimism on growth following tax legislation. He stressed several times that wage inflation isn’t at a point of acceleration and isn’t expected to push up inflation. He does expect wages and prices to be moving up, but he didn’t suggest inflation is on the brink or a breakout. The PCE deflator data supports that conclusion. It’s still the case the Fed will increase the funds rate another 25 bps at the end of the month.
