    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 20th March 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: The global stock market sell off that was led by tech stocks started to ease in Asia, although, Nikkei and Topix still closed with losses of -0.47% and -0.21% respectively and the ASX was down -0.39% at the close. Markets started to pare losses though in the later part of the session and Hang Seng and CSI 300 are up -0.04% and 0.02%. Long yields declined across Asia, but are mostly up from earlier lows and while the 10 year JGB yield is down -0.1 bp at 0.032%, the 10-year Treasury yield is up 0.7 bp at 2.863%. U.s. stock futures are also up from lows and Dow Jones mini and S&P mini are moving higher in tandem with the FTSE 100 future. Risks of growing protectionism and the Fed meeting continue to hang over markets, although it seems after the week session yesterday investors are taking a breather. Oil prices are also higher and the front end Nymex future is trading at USD 62.57 per barrel. Fed and BoE meetings continue to hang over markets, but the calendar is also picking up today, with German ZEW investor confidence and U.K. inflation numbers both able to move markets.

    FX Update: The yen has traded softer so far today. USD-JPY has lifted to a three-session high of 106.86, and EUR-JPY and other yen crosses have similarly lifted. Good yen selling was seen at the Tokyo fix (today is a “gotobi” day, date multiple of 5, which is netted out Japanese importers’ demand for foreign currencies), and the currency subsequently maintained a modest downside ebb. Asian stock markets have been mixed, with Japan’s Nikkei closing 0.6% for the worse, but Chinese indexes and U.S. equity futures managing gains. On the trade war front Chinese premier, Li, pledged that it will lower import tariffs and better protect intellectual property rights, and also noted that the WTO has already ruled against tariffs directed at itself. Japan’s trade minister said that there was a “high possibility” that Japan would be exempted from the U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminium. Bloomberg reported a Japanese MoF official complaining that recent yen movements have been too volatile and trading too strongly. Japanese data today included the March Tankan business survey, which fell 1.0% m/m for large manufacturers while rising 2.0% for services.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * UK CPI – headline CPI expected to ebb to 2.8% y/y from 3.0% , and core CPI to also decline by 0.2 of a percentage point, to 2.5%. A steadying in the pound’s trade-weighted value on the year-on-year comparison should have imparted an abatement in sterling-induced price pressures.

    * German ZEW – is the most forward looking, but also least reliable of Eurozone confidence indicators. And with stock market sentiment remaining shaky amid concerns of a global trade war, a dip to 13.0 from 17.8 is expected.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 21st March 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: Stock markets continued to stabilise during the Asian session. Japan was closed for a holiday, which meant thinner trade, but elsewhere energy related stocks helped markets to recover from the slump in tech stocks that hit global markets at the beginning of the week. Oil prices lifted to a high of USD 63.85 overnight, on news that the OPEC led alliance of oil producers accelerated plans to curb the worldwide supply glut. The ASX closed with a gain of 0.23% and the Hang Seng is up 0.61%, after a positive close on Wall Street, although, U.S. futures are struggling to move higher as the focus shifts to the Fed announcement and markets remain split on whether the Fed will lift its rate hike schedule for this year. The holiday in Japan meant Treasuries were not traded overnight and elsewhere long yields were mixed across Asia, with slightly lower 10-year rates in China and Australia, while New Zealand’s 10-year moved higher.

    FX Update: The dollar majors have plied narrow ranges to far today. EURUSD lifted to the north of 1.2250 after logging a three-week low yesterday at 1.2239, which capped a recent down move driven by a widening in the U.S. Treasury over Bund yield spread. USDJPY has settled to a consolidation with a modest downward drift after a two-day run higher. The pair drifted back under 106.50 after yesterday printing a one-week high at 106.60. Japanese markets were closed today for a public holiday in Japan, exacerbating thin market conditions with many market participants sitting on their hands into the Fed policy announcement and SEP (Summary of Economic Projections) today. Market’s median expectation are forecasting a 25 bp rate hike, to boost the funds band to 1.50% to 1.75%. It is widely expected that the Committee will leave the dot plot medians at 3 hikes this year and next, though policymakers are likely to upgrade their forecasts on growth and lower their view on the unemployment rate. USDCAD dipped to a four-session low of 1.3010 on news of progress on the NAFTA front, with the U.S. dropping its contentious auto-content proposal.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * UK Labour Market Data- Labor data expected to show the unemployment rate remaining unchanged at 4.4%, and with average earnings in the three-months to January to rise by 2.6% y/y

    * Existing Home Sales – expected to rebound 1.9% to a 5.415 mln pace , recovering somewhat from the 3.2% January drop to 5.380 mln and December’s 2.8% decline to 5.560 mln.

    * FOMC Statement and Funds Rate decision – A 25 bp tightening in the funds rate band to 1.50% to 1.75% is as sure a bet as there can be. But there’s considerable uncertainty over the trajectory of rate hikes and whether the FOMC will opt to maintain the outlook for 3 tightenings this year, or revise up to 4.

    * FOMC Press Conference

    * RBNZ Rate Statement – RBNZ expected to hold the policy rate steady at 1.75% and maintain that monetary policy will remain accommodative for a considerable period.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd March 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: The 10-year Bund yield is down -1.5 bp at 0.572% in opening trade, following Treasury yields, which have lost a further -2.2 bp during the Asian session after already dipping in the wake of yesterday’s Fed announcement, with Powell’s lack of urgency on rates helping to counterbalance the steeper rate hike trajectory in the dot plots further out. European stock market futures are heading south, U.S. stock futures are now also in the red, as tariff threats and concern of an escalating trade war hang over markets as central banks advance towards less expansionary policies. The BoE is expected to keep policy settings unchanged today, but the guidance should keep a May rate hike in play. Data releases are expected to be bond friendly, with EMU PMIs and the German Ifo seen correcting further. The ECB’s economic bulletin and Eurozone current account data are also on the agenda.

    FX Update: The dollar has come under pressure since the Fed’s policy announcement, with the central bank having been perceived as sticking to a gradualist approach to tightening following an expected 25 bp hike, even though growth forecasts were upwardly revised and the rate path steepened. The narrow trade-weighted USD index (DXY) extended to a fresh two-week low in pre-European trading in Asia, posting a low of 89.45. EURUSD rallied into eight-day high terrain above 1.2360, and USD-JPY logged a two-week low at 105.58. The Australian dollar’s gains versus its U.S. counterpart were constrained by a miss in Australian jobs data, which showed employment rising by 17.5k, below the median forecast for a 20.0k gain. AUDUSD pulled back under 0.7750 after earlier logging a six-day high at 0.7785.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * Eurozone PMI/Ifo Preview – The March Eurozone manufacturing PMI is seen slipping back to 58.2 from 58.6 and the services reading to 56.0 from 56.2, which should leave the composite at 56.9, down from 57.1 in February, but still pointing to a healthy pace of expansion across both sectors. Similarly, the German Ifo is expected to correct to 114.9 in from 115.4, but taking a longer perspective that would still be a strong number.

    * UK Retail Sales – 0.3% m/m rise is anticipated after the 0.1% m/m growth in the month prior, though there is downside rise given snow-bound weather conditions during the month.

    * BoE – After the excitement of the Fed meeting, the BoE announcement could well prove to be a non-event for markets following the February meeting and quarterly Inflation Report update, with the repo rate widely expected to be left unchanged at 0.50%, and with QE totals also more than likely to remained unaltered. February’s guidance, which has prepped markets for a possible hike in May (market odds having been running at about 80% for a 25 bp hike), is also likely to remain in play.

    * US Jobless Claims – expected to fall 3k to 225k from 226k in the week-ended March 10.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd March 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: Bund futures continue to rally in opening trade, the 10-year yield is down -1.0 bp at 0.515%, amid a wider tumble in global yields as the stock market sell off intensifies. Curves flatten as the long end outperforms and investors see global central banks delaying the withdrawal of stimulus as the escalating trade war is threatening world growth. The EU got a temporary exemption from Trump’s tariffs on steel and aluminium, but Japan didn’t and China quickly retaliated with its own tariff plans for imports from the U.S. Asian stock markets posted 2-4.5% losses, European stock futures are also heading south in opening trade. The local data calendar is pretty empty today, leaving the focus on the EU summit, which was also set to discuss Trump’s tariff plans, but the main focus today is on the expected signing off on a U.K. transition deal and the guidelines for the EU’s negotiating position on a future trade deal with the U.K. Amid the threat of a global trade war, the pressure to at least minimise the disruption to trade across Europe is intensifying.

    FX Update: Japan’s core CPI improved to a 1.0% y/y pace in February from the 0.9% rate of annual increase in January. Total CPI climbed to a 1.5% y/y clip from 1.4% in January. The core rate is the fastest pace since the 2.2% y/y gain in March of 2015, which gave way to -0.5% rates of decline from July to September of 2016. The BoJ’s target is a 2% core rate, so they are now half way there. However, the beating drums of global trade war threaten Japan’s export oriented growth engine, while the appreciating yen is a headwind to exports and inflation. The yen is holding just below 105.00 — it was as high as 114.09 in early November.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * US Durable Goods & New Home Sales – New home sales are estimated increasing 2.9% to 0.620 mln in February, after dropping 7.8% to 0.593 mln. Risk is also to the downside here given weak secondary market measures. Durable goods orders for February are projected bouncing 1.5%, unwinding some of the 3.6% January drop.

    * CAD Retail Sales – January retail sales are seen rebounding 1.0% in January after the 0.8% drop in December. The ex-autos retail sales aggregate is projected to rise 0.8% after a 1.8% plunge.

    * CAD CPI – expected to grow 0.3% m/m in February after the 0.7% jump in January. A 1.8% y/y growth pace is projected for the CPI during February following the 1.7% y/y growth rate in January.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 26th March 2018.




    Main Macro Events This Week

    The pendulum has swung back wickedly to trade politics after President Trump announced tariffs on $50 bln in Chinese tech and telecom imports. In turn, the Chinese retaliated on $3 bln in largely agricultural items, but hinted at more to come, including mulling “all options” when asked about ongoing Treasury purchases. Perhaps once the full scope of our tangled economic relationship is laid bare, both sides will have a greater appreciation for its complexity and benefits, while addressing its evident shortcomings as well. Meanwhile, Trump also grudgingly signed off on a $1.3 tln budget deal, which boosted military spending among other things, but didn’t have everything on his wish list.

    United States: The U.S. economic calendar will connect the dots the week after the Fed lifted theirs, starting with updates (Monday) on the Chicago Fed national activity index for February and the March Dallas Fed index. January Case Shiller home prices may slip (Tuesday) to 204.3 from 204.5, while consumer confidence is expected to hold up near 130.00 in March from 130.8 in February and the Richmond Fed index may sink to 20 in March from 28. MBA mortgage applications are due (Wednesday), followed by the advanced trade in goods deficit, seen narrowing to -$73.6 bln from -$75.3 bln. The third report on Q4 GDP may rise to 2.8% vs 2.5% (Wednesday), along with NAR pending home sales and EIA energy inventories. Initial jobless claims may dip 5k to 224k for the March 24 week (Thursday), with personal income forecast to rise 0.5% in February and spending seen +0.3% core PCE prices may remain at a lowly 1.5% y/y for the fifth consecutive time. Chicago PMI is set to rise to 62.0 in March from 61.9 (Thursday), while final Michigan sentiment may hold at 102.0 in March. U.S. Markets will be closed for Good Friday.

    Canada: The highlight is January GDP (Thursday), expected to rise 0.1% after the 0.1% gain in December. The industrial product price index (Thursday) is projected to rise 0.1% in February (m/m, nsa) after a 0.3% gain in January as the dip in gasoline prices restrains growth in the index. January average weekly earnings (Wednesday) are expected to rise 0.2% (m/m, sa) after the identical 0.2% gain in December. The Bank of Canada has been of the view that some slack remains in the labour market while the economy is operating at full capacity. The CFIB’s Business Barometer survey of small and medium business sentiment for March is due Thursday. There is nothing from the Bank of Canada this week. The next event is the release of the Business Outlook Survey on April 9, followed by the rate announcement and Monetary Policy Report on April 18. Canada’s stocks and bond markets are closed for Good Friday, March 30.

    Europe: Europe will start to hunker down going into the long Easter Holiday weekend, but the calendar still holds key data releases. The German HICP (Thursday) firming back to 1.6% y/y from 1.2% y/y, while the French rate (Friday) is seen lifting to 1.5% y/y from 1.3% y/y, the Italian rate (Friday) to 0.8% y/y from 0.5%. This should leave the preliminary March Eurozone rate, due April 4, to come back to around 1.4/1.5%. This is still far below the ECB’s upper limit for price stability of 2%, but officials are more confident now that underlying inflation has turned a corner and is on the way higher.

    This is partly a reflection of increasingly tight labor markets, especially in Germany, where the official jobless number (Thursday) is likely to dip by a further -15K, leaving the jobless rate at a very low 5.4%. German wage growth is indeed picking up, but the doves at the ECB argue that with more people entering the labor market, official figures underestimate the wider level of underemployment. PMIs, ZEW and Ifo surveys all declined in March and the Eurozone ESI economic confidence indicator (Tuesday) is expected to fall back to 113.4 from 114.1, thus backing the ECB’s cautious stance. Still, while there is some disagreement over the degree of slack remaining in the economy, and how urgent is the need to phase out of exceptional measures, it is still pretty clear that the ECB is preparing to end net asset purchases by the end of the year. Officials don’t seem in a hurry though to commit to such a step just yet, however, and if volatility remains high, Draghi could delay a clarification of the future of QE until July, still well ahead of the end of the current QE schedule in September.The data calendar meanwhile also includes Eurozone M3 numbers, German import price inflation and consumer confidence as well as Italian confidence data and industrial orders and finally French consumer spending numbers.

    UK: The calendar brings, in chronologic order, mortgage lending data (Monday), the monthly Nationwide house price indicator and the latest CBI distributive trades survey (both Wednesday), and Gfk consumer confidence, the third and final release of Q4 GDP data, Q4 current account figures, and monthly lending data from the BoE (all on Thursday). From these, the CBI retail survey expected to show a realised sales headline of 7 in March, after 8 in the month prior, the Gfk consumer confidence to remain unchanged a -10 in March, and GDP growth to remain unrealised at 0.4% q/q and 1.4% y/y. In-line outcomes would not likely impact sterling markets much. The markets will be closed Friday through Monday for Easter.

    Japan: In Japan, growth has shown signs of slowing after the better than expected Q4 GDP pace of 1.6%. And the erosion in business sentiment could portend further slippage, especially on regional trade worries as well as the firmer JPY. Additionally, the stronger yen could thwart the BoJ’s reflation attempt. This week’s data will help clarify the outlook. February services PPI (Tuesday) is expected to dip to a 0.6% y/y pace from 0.7%. February retail sales (Thursday) are seen climbing to a 1.0% y/y clip from 0.4% for large retailers, and to 2.0% y/y from 1.5% overall. Tokyo March CPI (Friday) is pencilled in at an unchanged 1.4% y/y overall, and 1.0% y/y from 0.9% on a core basis. February unemployment rate (Friday) is forecast at a steady 2.4%, while the job offers/seekers ratio likely remained steady at 1.59. February preliminary industrial production (Friday) is expected to bounce to a 6.0% y/y rate from -6.6%, though a lot of the swing could be a function of Lunar New Year distortions. February housing starts (Friday) are estimated to have improved to a -6.0% y/y pace after plunging to -13.2% previously (perhaps on poor weather). February construction orders are also due Friday.

    Australia: The data calendar has private sector credit (Thursday), expected to improve to a 5.0% y/y pace in February from 4.9% in January. The usually busy Reserve Bank of Australia has nothing on the docket this week. The next event is the April 3 board meeting, which no change to the current 1.50% rate setting is expected.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 27th March 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: The 10-year Bund yield is up 1.0 bp at 0.528% in early trade, vs a 1.5 bp gain in 10-year JGB yields. Treasury yields are down -0.4 bp, but have also lifted from the lows seen during the Asian session, as stock markets bounced back in Asia. Peripheral bonds are outperforming as risk appetite improves and European stock futures are also rallying. The GER30 future is up more than 1.8% as risk appetite strengthens amid hopes that U.S. posturing on tariffs is primarily a tool to gain trade concessions and won’t trigger and all out trade war. Still, volatility is likely to remain high and sentiment fragile which is underpinning volatility on markets. The data calendar picks up today. Released at the start of the session German import price inflation came in weaker than expected. Spanish HICP numbers will also be watched closely and Eurozone ESI economic sentiment is expected to dip again.

    FX Update: The yen posted fresh lows today, losing ground for a second straight day amid a backdrop of reviving risk appetite and associated gains in global stock markets. USDJPY clocked a three-session high of 105.75 in Tokyo, about a 35 pip gain on the New York closing levels, putting in some further distance from the 16-month low seen on Friday at 104.64. EURJPY and other yen crosses have seen a similar price action. There was no data or other news of market-moving note today. A belief in market narratives that Trump’s protectionism push will be more bluff than buster, with initial grandiose threats giving way to watering down, exemptions and negotiation, have been underpinning stock markets this week, and seeing the yen’s safe haven premium unwind. Elsewhere, the dollar has largely consolidated near lows posted yesterday against the euro and many other currencies. EURUSD has been settled near 1.2450 after yesterday seeing a six-week high at 1.2461. Cable has seen a similar action. AUDUSD and NZDUSD managed fresh highs before backing off. USDCAD edged out a two-session low at 1.2828.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * Eurozone ESI – is expected to fall back to 113.4 from 114.1, thus backing the ECB’s cautious stance on the phasing out of QE. Bundesbank President Weidmann may be pushing for a firm commitment to the end of net asset purchases, but Draghi and Praet seem less in a hurry and with markets still jittery officials could well wait until July before clarifying the future of QE beyond September.

    * CB Consumer Confidence – is expected to hold up near 130.40 in March from 130.8 in February.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 28th March 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: German 10-year yields are down in opening trade, in tandem with global trends, as long bonds are underpinned by a fresh bout of risk aversion and a sell off in stocks. Fresh selling of tech stocks sparked a sharp decline on Wall Street yesterday, that was followed by a broad correction in Asia and European stock futures are heading south in tandem with U.S. futures. The GER30 future lost more than -0.9% in opening trade. The 10-year Bund yield has dipped back below the 0.5% mark, the 10-year Treasury yield consolidated below 2.8% during the Asian session after declining sharply during U.S. hours, the 10-year JGB yield is down -0.1 bp at 0.027%. Month and quarter end cash flows, redemptions and sizeable index extensions in Europe will continue to underpin peripherals in particular and could help to keep Eurozone spreads narrow despite the flare up in risk aversion. Meanwhile German GfK consumer confidence unexpectedly improved. Still to come, the U.K. has the CBI distributive trade survey as well as BoE Agent reports of business conditions and Italian orders and sales numbers for the industrial sector.

    FX Update: USDJPY and yen crosses have settled lower versus yesterday’s highs, with the Japanese currency finding renewed safe haven demand as Wall Street, specifically the tech-sector, led a fresh global stock market wobble. News that the Trump trade team may be planning to use emergency laws via CFIUS to clamp down on China investment into the U.S. also set a negative tone. Investors will remain focused on developments in the tech sector and on Trump’s protectionist policies, which in turn will have a bearing on the yen. The visit to Beijing by North Korea’s Kim has been greeted as a positive in terms of further allaying geopolitical tensions on the Korean peninsular, though evidently hasn’t been sufficient tonic to quell the risk-off vibe in markets. BoJ’s Kuroda repeated, for the umpteenth time, that the central bank will persist with “powerful” monetary stimulus, while Japanese PM Abe said that a delay in the planned sales tax hike would be considered in the scenario of a financial shock. The Nikkei 225 equity index finished 2% for the worse. USDJPY, which has been trending lower since early January, and technically remains in this downtrend, has resistance at 105.94-95.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 29th March 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: the 10-year Bund yield is up 0.8 bp at 0.505% in early trade, amid an overall mixed picture on global bond markets. Peripherals are slightly outperforming in Europe, the 10-year JGB yield is up 0.3 bp at 0.026%, but down from earlier highs, the 10-year Treasury yield is up from lows and unchanged at 2.78%. European stock futures struggled initially, but are now broadly higher, after a mixed session in Asia. Traders remain cautious after the sell off in tech stocks and amid the surge in risk appetite, but with the long Easter holiday weekend looming things may quieten down somewhat. This is also the last trading day for Bunds this month and this quarter and after sizeable index extensions in EGBs may have underpinned peripheral bonds in particular, the effect is likely to wane now, although upcoming redemption should keep the ECB in the market. Released overnight U.K. GfK consumer confidence surprised on the upside, while house price data disappointed. The calendar still has key German inflation data as well as German labour market numbers. U.K. lending data and the third reading of U.K. Q4 GDP.

    FX Update: The dollar has traded softer in relatively quiet trade into what will be long holiday weekend for many major centres. EURUSD has settled in the lower 1.23s after tipping to a low of 1.2399 late yesterday. USDJPY ebbed back to the mid 106.0s from the upper 106.00s, partly on the softer dollar and partly on yen gains. A mixed session across Asian stock markets spoke of a continued vexed sentiment, with FAANG stocks on Wall Street a prevailing source of bearishness. Japan’s finance minister, Aso, attempted to walk the yen lower by arguing that yield differentials warrant higher levels in USDJPY.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * German Unemployment – the official jobless number is likely to dip by a further -15K (, leaving the jobless rate at a very low 5.4%. German wage growth is indeed picking up, but the doves at the ECB argue that with more people entering the labor market, official figures underestimate the wider level of underemployment.

    * German March HICP – German HICP expected to firm back to 1.6% y/y from 1.2% y/y in the previous month, which is in line with consensus and partly based on the assumption that the earlier timing of Easter this year lifted holiday related prices in March rather than April, and thus added positive base effects.

    * Canada GDP – GDP expected to expand 0.1% in January (m/m, sa) after the 0.1% rise in December. The risk is to the downside in January, as manufacturing shipments contracted and home sales tumbled. The 1.1% tumble in manufacturing shipment volumes during January is a heavy weight on the January GDP outlook.

    * US data – Initial jobless claims may dip 5k to 224k for the March 24 week, with personal income forecast to rise 0.4% in February and spending seen +0.3% (median 0.2%); core PCE prices may remain at a lowly 1.5% y/y for the fifth consecutive time. Chicago PMI is set to rise to 62.0 in March from 61.9 , while final Michigan sentiment may hold at 102.0 in March.

    Date : 2nd April 2018.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 2nd April 2018.




    Main Macro Events This Week

    It was a rough and tumble Q1 for stock and bond bulls as global asset markets suffered losses of varying degrees. The Dow and S&P declined in the January to March period for the first time since Q2 2015. The pain was exacerbated given the stellar Q4 results. The three-month MSCI All Country Index was off as well. While there were various explanations for the declines in asset values, less accommodative monetary policy, geopolitical risks, and signs of slowing economic momentum certainly featured. This week should be a consolidative one ahead of key data and events, and the advent of the Q1 earnings season in one-week time. We believe still-solid fundamentals, including tight labor markets and strong confidence measures point to a rebound in equities and a bounce in bond yields.

    United States: The U.S. markets managed to rebound on Thursday, the last day of Q1, supported by month- and quarter-end flows. There was also some easing in trade tensions, a better than expected Q4 GDP result, and signs of health consumer and business confidence. Fed fears have receded too since Chairman Powell’s Monetary Policy Report, and as inflation pressures have ebbed too. Cautious trading should characterize this week as the markets assess recent actions, while looking ahead to the jobs report (Friday). Fed Chairman Powell’s comments (Friday) on the economic outlook will be eagerly awaited too. March nonfarm payrolls (Friday) will be the usual highlight. The manufacturing and services ISMs will also be key for the economic outlook heading into Q2. The manufacturing index for March (Monday) is seen slipping to 60.0 after the unexpected jump to 60.8 in February, a 13-year high. The March services index (Wednesday) should drop to 59.0 from February’s 59.5 and the 12-year high of 59.9 from January. Other confidence measures for March have shrugged off the turmoil thanks to buoyant optimism regarding future growth. March auto sales (Tuesday) will contribute importantly to the spending outlook as well. Also on tap this week are February construction spending (Monday), the ADP survey of private payrolls (Wednesday), February factory orders (Wednesday), and February trade (Thursday).

    Fedspeak will be a focal point as the markets again look to debate the rate trajectory with fundamentals coming back into view — will the Fed hike the three times projected by the dots, or will they go only one more time, or three more times this year. All eyes will be on Chairman Powell who speaks on the economic outlook (Friday at 13:30 ET). His comments and the morning’s jobs report, will help give the markets big directional guideposts. His pragmatic outlook from his Monetary Policy Report, along with some easing in inflation numbers, helped soothe market fears of a more hawkish FOMC.

    Canada: The Canadian calendar this week features March employment (Friday), which is expected to reveal a 25.0k gain in total jobs following the 15.4k gain in February. The unemployment rate is projected to hold at 5.8%, a 40-year low. The trade deficit (Thursday) is expected to widen to -C$2.1 bln in February from -C$1.9 bln in January. The Markit manufacturing PMI is due Monday, while the Ivey PMI is scheduled for a Friday release.

    Europe: It’s another holiday shortened week with most European markets still closed on Monday for the Easter holidays. Traders will welcome the break after a pretty stressful month, and quarter, that saw a surge in volatility, along with a drop in equity prices and an uptick in Gilt and Bund yields. But, the start of the new quarter is a chance for markets to settle down somewhat. Geopolitical risks have eased slightly, there is less concern of an all-out trade war, while in Europe there is more clarity on Brexit. Still, tech giants will remain under a cloud and global central banks remain on course to remove stimulus. The ECB has already started to shift the goal post to rate hike prospects for next year, which pretty much makes the phasing out of net asset purchases this year a done deal. Yet, Draghi may wait until July before finally committing, and by then another short QE program to phase out the current EUR 30 bln may already be enough to keep the markets happy if he delivers it with a dovish guidance on rates. Still, that 2019 will be the year when rates clearly lift off is increasingly certain and volatility may remain high as markets adjust to the new normal.

    This week’s data highlight is the preliminary Eurozone HICP inflation reading for March (Wednesday), where an acceleration is expected in the headline rate to 1.4% y/y from 1.1% y/y in the previous month. The March Eurozone manufacturing PMI (Tuesday) is expected to be confirmed at the 56.6 preliminary report, and is down from the 60.6 December print. The services reading (Thursday) is projected at 55.3, and is off of the 58.0 high from January. These would leave the composite (Thursday) at 55.5, lower than the 57.1 in February, as well as the 58.8 January high. Despite the slippage, the numbers are still pointing to healthy levels of expansion. German manufacturing orders (Thursday) should rebound from the dip in February, while industrial production (Friday) is seen rising 0.1% m/m, after a drop of -0.1% m/m in January. The overall picture is still that of slightly slowing growth momentum as the output gap starts to close, but gradually improving underlying inflation, the combination of which will leave the ECB on course to phase out QE this year.

    UK: London markets will return on Tuesday following the four-day Easter weekend. The calendar is quiet this week, highlighted by the release of the Markit PMI surveys for March on Tuesday, and the construction PMI (Wednesday) to ebb to a 51.0 reading after 51.4 in the month prior. The services PMI (Thursday) expected to slip to 54.0 (from 54.5. As-expected data shouldn’t have much bearing on BoE policy expectations. Sterling markets are factoring about 80% odds for a 25 bp rate hike at the May Monetary Policy Committee meeting, which would coincide with the central bank’s next release of its quarterly inflation report.

    Japan: The March Nikkei/Markit manufacturing PMI (Tuesday) is expected to rise to 54.3 (the March preliminary reading was 53.2) versus the 54.1 final February reading. March auto sales are also due Tuesday. February personal income and PCE (Friday), with the latter forecast slowing to 0.5% y/y, partly due to bad weather, from 2.0% previously.

    China: The March services PMI (Wednesday) is penciled in at 54.9 from 54.7.

    Australia: The Reserve Bank of Australia (Tuesday) is expected to maintain the current 1.50% rate setting, alongside a statement that is consistent with an eventual rate hike. The RBA expected to remain on hold well into this year, as growth and inflation gradually improve. The data calendar has retail sales (Wednesday), seen rising 0.4% in February after the 0.1% gain in January. Building approvals (also Wednesday) are projected to fall 8.0% in February after a 17.1% surge in January. The trade surplus (Thursday) is expected to narrow to A$0.6 bln in February from the A$1.1 bln surplus in January.

    New Zealand: the data and events calendars are blank. The Bank held rates steady at 1.75% in March and maintained that monetary policy will remain accommodative for a considerable period.
