    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 14th June 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: The 10-year Bund yield is down -0.1 bp at 0.477% in opening trade. Bond markets pretty quickly shrugged off the hawkish Fed during the Asian session as the PBOC failed to follow up and as stock markets headed south. The PBOC didn’t follow the Fed and tighten policy as had been speculated, but Trump said he will confront China “very strongly” over trade in coming weeks and a number of key data of of China, including retail sales and industrial output missed estimates, which added to concerns over a softening economy. Bond markets benefited from the sell off in stocks and the fact that the PBOC refrained from tightening and even Treasury yields fell back from earlier highs. 10-year Treasury yields are down -1.8 bp and at 2.948%, below the levels seen ahead of the Fed announcement. 10-year JGBs are down -0.6 bp. German final inflation data held no surprise and was confirmed at 2.2% y/y and the data calendar also has final French inflation readings as well as U.K. retail sales, but the focus is on the ECB, which is finally expected to confirm the end of QE, leaving the focus on the forward guidance.

    FX Update: The dollar has more than given back gains seen in the immediate wake of the Fed’s rate hike and hawkish-tilting guidance. EURUSD recouped back above 1.1800 after dipping to a 1.1725 low, post Fed. The euro has been trading generally firmer over the last day, gaining against the pound, Swiss franc, among other currencies, with market narratives focusing on the successful Italian auction of 30-year bonds yesterday, with the appetite for the long-dated debt seen as a good litmus test of investor sentiment on the new Italian government. Market participants are also anticipating the ECB to announce an end of QE policy today. Elsewhere, USDJPY printed a three-day low of 110.04. The biggest movement out of the main currencies has been AUDJPY and is showing a loss of over 0.5%. The Aussie dollar has been under pressure following a sub-forecast Australian employment report. Ahead today, the ECB is expecting to announce the end of QE, while U.S. President Trump will reportedly decide whether to proceed with tariffs on Chinese goods later on Thursday — and his unabashed form this week suggests he won’t hold back.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * UK Retail Sales – Expectations – to rise 0.5% m/m in May, which would affirm a continued recovery from sharp weather-affected weakness in March, although at a decelerated pace from the 1.6% m/m growth seen in April.

    * SNB press conference

    * ECB Rate Decision and Press Conference – Expectations – Comments from ECB officials suggest that the ECB is finally ready to formally announce the end of net asset purchases. The main question in recent months has been the actual timing of the announcement, not the policy change. So the announcement of a short taper through Q4 would not really come as a surprise, leaving intense focus on the forward guidance. Mr. Draghi expected to initially wrap the announcement in rather dovish language to keep markets from running away with rate hike speculation at a time when geopolitical risks are still hanging over markets.

    * US Retail Sales and Unemployment Claims – Expectations – Retail sales are expected to rise 0.4% in May, following a 0.2% increase in April and a 0.7% gain in March. Initial jobless claims are estimated to be slightly changed at 224k for the week ended June 9.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 15th June 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: 10-year Bund yields are down -0.9 bp at 0.41% in opening trade, as global bond markets remain supported by Draghi’s dovish tone yesterday, which was followed by a BoJ statement that left policy unchanged, but downgraded the inflation assessment. Global stock markets are trading mixed though, as the focus returns to trade risks. And for Europe, the weaker EUR may still add support to equity markets, but given that rate hike expectations had already been pushed out amid weak data releases, market reaction to the ECB’s commitment to keep rates steady through summer 2019 seems somewhat overdone. The European calendar has final inflation readings for the Eurozone as well as trade numbers for April, but after the ECB move yesterday these are unlikely to have much market impact.

    FX Update: The dollar has traded broadly firmer so far today, with the ECB’s dovish-tilting guidance yesterday coupled with the BoJ lowering its prognosis on the inflation outlook (following a widely-anticipated decision to leave monetary policy unchanged) serving to emphasize the Fed’s relatively hawkish stance. EURUSD extended to a fresh 16-day low of 1.1555 in Asia trading. The pair had been trading above 1.1820 ahead of the ECB’s announcement yesterday, and the magnitude of losses are the sharpest over a day since October 26th-27th of last year. USDJPY, meanwhile, lifted to a 24-day high of 110.99. The BoJ’s downgraded CPI forecast underlines the chronic undershooting of the inflation target and points to ongoing ultra-accommodative policy — which includes pegging the 10-year JGB yield at near 0% — for the foreseeable future, certainly through to 2019. The dollar also posted gains against the dollar bloc currencies and sterling, and most other currencies, including emerging and newly-developed world currencies. Market participants will now be bracing for President Trump’s expected escalation of trade tariffs, as he will reportedly be confirming tariffs on China later today.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * Eurozone May HICP – Expectations – inflation is expected to be confirmed at 1.9% y/y with the final release today, up from 1.2% y/y in April. The impact of higher oil prices is partly to blame, as are higher food prices, but in the preliminary number core inflation also lifted. The headline rate is pretty much in line with the ECB’s definition of price stability and there is in fact a slight risk of an upside revision. However, with the ECB meeting out of the way, and Draghi confirming that rates won’t rise before the end of the summer 2019 the numbers are unlikely to have much market impact.

    * Canada manufacturing Sales – Expectations – expected to reveal a 1.0% gain in April after the 1.4% rise in March.

    * US Industrial production & UoM Consumer Sentiment – Expectations – Industrial production may rise 0.2% in May, following strong 0.7% readings in April and March and capacity utilization should edge up to 78.1% from 78.0%. Finally, the Michigan sentiment expected to be improved to 98.5 from 98.0.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 18th June 2018.




    THE ECONOMIC WEEK AHEAD

    Main Macro Events This Week

    The FOMC tightened policy last week and followed with a more hawkish stance as it suggested two more hikes could be on the way this year. Additionally, the ECB finally announced a phase-out of QE asset purchases. But, a balanced press conference from Fed Chairman Powell and a dovish slant from President Draghi mitigated a bearish response in the markets. But trade tensions resurfaced Friday after President Trump’s announced tariffs on China, which responded in kind. Central banks remain in the spotlight and the BoE headlines, but there are also decisions from Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, and the Philippines, along with the ECB’s Sintra conference. OPEC meets while PMI data will provide timely clues global economies.

    United States: The U.S. data calendar should support the more upbeat message on the economy delivered by the FOMC last week. Housing reports dominate and should show overall improvement. June PMI reports should also reveal still solid readings, even if they moderate slightly. And the leading economic index should rise for an 8th consecutive month. May housing starts (Tuesday) are estimated rising 0.6% to 1.295 mln following a 3.7% plunge in April to 1.287 mln. The June NAHB housing market index (Monday) is expected unchanged at 70. Also on tap is the FHFA home price index (Thursday) which should rise to 263.1 in April from 261.7. The Philly Fed index (Thursday) should fall 9.4 points to a still-strong 25.0 in June, after jumping 11.2 points to a 1-year high to 34.4 in May, with a concomitant slide in the ISM-adjusted Philly Fed to 59.7 from a 45-year high of 62.5 in May. Markit manufacturing and services PMIs are due Friday. The May leading economic index (Thursday) is expected to rise 0.3%, following gains of 0.4% in April and March. This would be an 8th consecutive increase, and the index hasn’t posted a decline since May 2016. The current account deficit (Wednesday) is expected to widen to -$129.0 bln in Q1, from -$128.2 bln in Q4. Initial jobless claims (Thursday) are seen edging up 1k to 219k in the week ended June 16, which coincides with the BLS employment survey week. Claims are oscillating around tight levels at multi-decade lows.

    Canada: The calendar features two top tier data releases and an appearance by a Bank of Canada official. The week beings with Senior Deputy Governor Patterson (Monday), who speaks to the Investment Industry Association of Canada on “Rebooting Reference Rates.” In May, the Bank maintained the 1.25% rate setting and moved closer to hiking rates again, but assured that their approach remains gradual.

    CPI (Friday) is expected to climb 0.4% in May (m/m, nsa) after the 0.3% gain in April, as further gains in gasoline prices boost the CPI. The CPI is projected to expand at a 2.5% y/y pace in May from 2.2% in April. A jump in the annual CPI growth rate should not alter the BoC’s gradualism — in the May announcement they noted that inflation will “likely be a bit higher in the near term than forecast in April” due mostly to gasoline prices.Retail sales (Friday) are anticipated to rise only 0.1% (m/m, sa) in April after the 0.6% gain in March, as a decline in vehicle sales weighs. The ex-autos aggregate is expected to improve 0.5% after the 0.2% drop in March. Wholesale shipment (Thursday) are seen rising 0.5% in April after the 1.1% gain in March, which would provide a welcome contrast to the 1.3% plunge in manufacturing shipment volumes revealed for April.

    Europe: This week’s round of data releases, which include preliminary PMI readings, are unlikely to offer much comfort as we expect a further decline in confidence levels across both manufacturing and services sectors. With markets still adjusting to the latest policy twists, data releases may have limited impact.

    The Eurozone June Manufacturing PMI (Friday) at 55.0, down from 55.5 in the previous month, as trade concerns continue to bite. The services reading is expected to hold up slightly better and fall back to 53.8 from 53.8 in the May. This could leave the overall reading at 53.6, down from 54.1 in the previous month. Again, still a robust number suggesting solid growth, but the ongoing decline in confidence readings in Q2 will likely lead to further downward revisions to growth estimate, as the slowdown in Q1 proved to be not quite as temporary as initially expected. So far labor markets continue to improve and wage growth is picking up, so only a small decline in the Eurozone preliminary consumer confidence number is expected (Thursday) to 0.1 from 0.2, although negative geopolitical headlines could have dented sentiment more than anticipated.

    Other data releases include national French confidence numbers, as well as the final reading of French Q1 GDP, the latter too backward looking to have much impact. German PPI inflation is expected to jump to 2.5% from 2.0% thanks to higher oil prices, but at this juncture that won’t matter much as the ECB already lifted its inflation forecasts.

    UK: The BoE’s MPC gathers for a policy meeting (announcing Thursday), where a no change in the 0.5% repo rate and QE totals are widely anticipated. The focus will fall on the statement and minutes for guidance, which will be of particular interest following a run of overall disappointing data so far available from April and May. Much will also depend on incoming data and how the worsening trade war evolves, in so far as it starts to have a material impact on global economies, thereby, and policymaker decision making. The UK’s data calendar features the June CBI industrial trends survey (Wednesday), which due to the reports limited breadth and short survey period tends to be overlooked by markets, and May government borrowing figures (Thursday).

    Japan: The April all-industry index (Thursday) is estimated rising 0.8% m/m from the prior flat reading. The pace of inflation likely slowed slightly. May national CPI (Friday) should reveal a cooler 0.5% y/y pace overall from the prior 0.6% clip.

    Australia: The minutes to the Reserve Bank of Australia’s May meeting (Tuesday) are the highlight of a thin week.Always trade with strict risk management. Your capital is the single most important aspect of your trading business.
