    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 2nd February 2017.






    FX News Today


    European Fixed Income Outlook: Bund yields are climbing higher in opening trade, with the 10-year trading at 0.726%, up 1.1 bp on the day, after the 10-year Treasury yield nearly touched 2.8% yesterday in the wake of the Atlanta Fed’s Q1 GDPNow estimate. The BoJ tried to ease the pressure on bond markets by stepping in with fresh purchase offers, and Treasury yields are also slightly down from the highs seen late yesterday. In Europe meanwhile ECB’s Nowotny added fresh pressure with a renewed call for an end to asset purchases, which he said will also see long yields rising. 2-year Schatz yields are up 0.2 bp at -0.554%, the 5-year is up 0.4 bp at 0.097%, leaving the curve steeper. Peripheral 10-year bonds are underperforming, and DAX and CAC 40 futures are heading south, as long yields rise and the EUR is trading above 1.25 against the dollar. FTSE 100 futures meanwhile pared earlier gains and are moving sideways. U.S. futures are mostly down, after a mixed session in Asia, where the BoJ’s action didn’t prevent a correction in equity markets.


    FX Update: USDJPY and yen crosses continued to gain today, with the Japanese currency underperforming concomitantly with the BoJ ramping up JGB purchases under its yield curve control framework to keep the 10-year yield at 0%. USDJPY clocked a nine-day high of 109.82, and EURJPY stormed to a 30-month high of 137.24. The BoJ bought Y450 bln of 5- to 10-year JGBs today, offering to buy unlimited quantities of 10-year paper. Reuters cited a BoJ official confirming that the actions enable the BOJ to firmly adhere to its current policy, and that it took steps after “large increase” in yields. The “large increase” was apparently the 10-year JGB yield having nudged above 0.1%. Other factors driving the yen lower include the rekindling of the global stock market rally and higher dollar yield advantage in USDJPY, following the Fed’s upgraded growth and inflation forecasts this week. Elsewhere, the euro has been showing moderate outperformance, led by the strong gain in EUR-JPY. EURUSD logged a high at 1.2523 late yesterday, and today found demand on dips under 1.2500. Last week’s 38-month high at 1.2537 is back within spitting distance.


    Main Macro Events Today


    UK Construction PMI – are likely to fell slightly in January, down to 52.00 from 52.2 seen last month.


    U.K. NFP & Unemployment rate – expected to increase by 180K from 148K,while the unemployment rate is expected to hold steady from 4.1% in October.


    US UoM Consumer Sentiment – The final January consumer sentiment report from the University of Michigan likely improved to 95.0 compared to the 94.4 preliminary.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 5th February 2017.






    Main Macro Events This Week


    It was a wild ride last week which ended with a devilish 666 point drop on the Dow and a 6.5 bp surge in the 30-year Treasury bond rate. The bearish tone was not isolated to Wall Street as all almost indexes were down with losses ranging from 1% to nearly 5%. Bond yields were generally higher too, led by the 30-year Treasury’s 15 bp climb to 3.08%. Factors weighing on the markets were worries over central bank tightening, potentially rising inflation, disappointing earnings, technical, and bearish momentum. However, selloffs have been expected given record highs on equities and still low rates on bonds, so it’s no time to panic. Fundamentals remain bullish and the FOMC isn’t going to panic by accelerating its policy path. However, all is not lost. Friday’s 666 point decline pales in comparison to the near 7200 point gain since President Trump’s election. Fundamentals point to strong economic growth this year, with the Atlanta Fed’s GDPNow estimate pointing to a 5.4% rate of growth in Q1.


    United States: Markets are likely to remain shaky as the new week begins with buyers waiting for the dust to settle before stepping back in. Though the “Nunes memo” wasn’t the catalyst for the plunge on Wall Street, it did keep potential dip buyers away. The most important indicator will be the January services ISM (Monday), expected to edge up to 57.0 (median 56.6) from a revised 56.0 in December. The trade deficit (Tuesday) should widen for a fifth straight month, to -$52.7 bln (median -$52.0 bln)from -$50.5 bln. Net exports were a big drag in the recent Q4 GDP report, though which was a function of a large increase in imports, reflective of the strength in consumption. Other releases include December JOLTS (Tuesday), consumer credit (Wednesday), jobless claims (Thursday), and wholesale trade (Friday). earnings season continues with Pharma’s, Disney and BP taking centre stage. Fedspeak continues and new Chair Powell takes the hot seat officially.


    Canada: January employment (Friday), expected to show a 20.0k gain after the 78.6k surge in December and 79.5k rise in November. The unemployment rate is projected to hold steady at 5.7%, which is the lowest for the current series that goes back to 1976. Wages will again be in the spotlight, with the average hourly wage projected to 3.0% y/y from 2.7% y/y in December. The trade balance (Tuesday) is expected to narrow to -C$2.1 bln in December from -C$2.5 bln in November. Export values are seen growing 2.0% m/m after the 3.7% surge in November. Housing starts (Thursday) are anticipated to slow further to a 210.0k unit pace in January from 217.0k in December. Building permits (Wednesday) are projected to expand 2.0% in December after the 7.7% tumble in November. The December new home price index (Thursday) is expected to rise 0.1% m/m after the 0.1% gain in November. The January Ivey PMI is due (Tuesday).


    Europe: The calendar quiets after last week’s flurry of releases, giving traders a lot of time to assess the volatile market conditions. And the few reports on tap won’t change the overall outlook for the economy, or the ECB. Growth surprised on the upside in 2017 and while confidence data remains robust, we expect a slowdown in momentum this year with political risks, including Italian elections and Brexit talks, looming on the horizon. The European calendar has German manufacturing orders (Tuesday), seen rebounding in December and rising 0.4% m/m (median 0.7%) after correcting -0.4% m/m in November. German industrial production for December (Wednesday), meanwhile, is seen falling -0.8 m/m (median -0.6%) after much stronger than expected growth of 3.4% m/m in November. Finally, Germany has December trade (Wednesday) and overall data are expected to confirm a slight deceleration in the quarterly GDP growth rate in Q4. For the Eurozone as a whole, the final readings of services and composite PMIs are expected to confirm preliminary readings of 57.6 and 58.6, respectively, signaling a robust pace of expansion at the start of 2018. The calendar also has Eurozone December retail sales, French and Italy production numbers, French trade and Italian inflation.


    UK: The pound closed out January with just over a net 5.0% gain against the dollar, the biggest monthly advance Her Majesty’s currency has seen since July 2010. The outperformance was driven by expectations for the BoE to make a hawkish shift in policy guidance at its MPC meeting this week. the February meeting of the BoE’s Monetary Policy Meeting (announcing Thursday), which will be accompanied by the release of the central bank’s quarterly inflation report. While the BoE is widely expected to leave the repo rate at 0.5% and QE totals unchanged, the meeting is likely to mark a sea change in approach after BoE Governor Carney last week forewarned that the central bank is beginning to turn its focus to a more conventional stance of limiting inflation. The inflation report is likely see the BoE upgrade its growth assessment, particularly the scope for self-sustaining private sector growth while highlighting a tightening labour market and rising wages. As for inflation, the marked ascent in the pound will likely see the BoE downgrade nearer-term CPI projections, but at the same time note increasing risk for second round inflationary pressures as labour markets tighten and spare capacity shrinks. The BoE will also likely point to factory selling prices having hit their highest rate of gain since 1984.Data this week includes the release of the January services PMI (Monday), which will follow sub-forecast construction and manufacturing PMI surveys for the same month. We expect the headline services PMI to dip slightly, to 54.0 (median same) from 54.2 in December. Production data for December is also up this week (Friday), where we anticipate a 0.9% m/m decline


    Japan: The December current account surplus (Thursday) is expected to narrow to JPY 1,000 bln from 1,347 bln. January bank loan figures are also due Thursday. The December tertiary industry index (Friday) should rise 0.5% m/m from the prior 1.1% rise.


    China: The January trade report (Thursday) should reveal a narrowed $53.0 bln surplus, from $54.7 in December. January CPI (Friday) is penciled in at up 1.6% y/y from 1.8%, while January PPI (Friday) should ease to 4.3% y/y from 4.9%. Services PMI was up significantly earlier at 54.7.


    Australia: The Reserve Bank of Australia meeting (Tuesday) is the focus. We expect no change to the current 1.50% rate setting. The Bank’s quarterly statement on monetary policy will be released (Friday), which will detail the current growth and inflation projections. Governor Lowe speaks (Thursday) at the A50 Australian Economic Forum dinner in Sydney. The trade deficit (Tuesday) is expected to improve to -A$100 mln in December from -A$628 mln in November. Retail sales (Tuesday) are seen falling 0.5% (m/m, sa) in December after the 1.2% bounce in November. Housing investment (Friday) is projected to drop 2.0% (m/m, sa) in December after the 2.1% jump in November.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 6th February 2017.






    FX News Today


    Asian Wrap : The sell off in stock markets deepened in Asia overnight, with Nikkei, Topix and Hang Seng loosing more than 4%, the ASX 200 more than 3%, the CSI nearly 3%. With this level of correction bond markets benefited from a flight to safety and yields declined markedly, after yesterday’s fresh move higher. With the global equity rout deepening, the question is will central bankers take note and with the change at the top of the Fed speculation that the sell off will halt the rise in rates is mounting. In Japan Kuroda told parliament that it would be inappropriate to raise the yield target even by a small margin. Meanwhile focus has shifted to plunge in a popular exchange traded fund, that was designed to bet against volatility and tanked in after hour trade.


    FX Update: The dollar has held firm, and the yen firmer amid a persisting global risk aversion theme. Japan’s Nikkei closed with a 4.8% loss, and was showing intraday losses of over 6% at the lows, while the Shanghai Composite and Australia’s ASX 200 racked up losses of over 3%. The narrow trade-weighted USD index (DXY) logged a two-week high at 89.72 before settling around the 89.50 mark, which is still just over 1% from the low seen last Friday. USDJPY clocked an eight-day low at 108.50 as Asia as the yen continued to find safe haven bids as global stock markets continued to head south. Driving risk aversion is spiking sovereign yields and the concomitant rise inflation expectations and prospects for the Fed to lead key central banks to take away monetary policy stimulus. Expectations are for USDJPY to grind lower over the coming days and weeks, though see risk of there being greater magnitude of declines in AUDJPY, which tends to correlate strongly with global stock market direction. Today’s strongest currency is the NZD ahead of tomorrows rate decision.


    German Factory Orders: German manufacturing orders jumped 3.8% m/m in December, much more than anticipated and with November revised up to -0.1% m/m from -0.4% m/m reported initially. An exceptionally strong number that points to ongoing strong growth in manufacturing. The statistical office reported that the main impulses came from export orders and here mainly orders from other Eurozone countries, which jumped sharply higher at the end of the year.


    Main Macro Events Today


    US Trade Balance – a further fall to $-52.0 bln from $-50.5bln for the December number


    CAD Ivey PMI – Expected to rise from 60.4 to 61.0


    NZD Jobs Data – Q4 Employment Change (No Change expected -0.2%) , Unemployment (No Change expected 4.6%) and Participation Rate (a fall to 70.8% from 71.1%)

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 7th February 2017.






    FX News Today


    European Fixed Income Outlook: Bund yields are higher in early trade, with the 10-year up 1.4 bp at 0.7% as of 7:28GMT, the 2-year up 0.4 bp at -0.576%, leaving the curve steeper once again as European stock futures move higher, with the DAX future leading the way and up 0.86% after a late rally on Wall Street yesterday. Asian markets also tried to recovered, but the rally started to fizzle out later in the session as rate hike concerns resurfaced and while the Nikkei managed a small gain of 0.16%, the CSI 300 closed with a loss of -2.37%. The relationship between bond and stock markets remains ambiguous but for now improving risk appetite is underpinning stocks and the outperformance of Eurozone peripheral bond markets, versus Bunds. Released at the start of the session, German industrial production corrected -0.6% m/m in December, broadly in line with expectations after a 3.1% m/m rise in November.. Still to come are U.K. house price numbers and a German 10-year auction.


    FX Update: The dollar traded mixed versus its major peers and developing world currencies, losing ground to the yen, euro, and sterling, among others, while gaining versus the Australian dollar and some other currencies, including the New Zealand dollar after a short-lived rally the antipodean currency in the wake of an above-forecast Q4 employment report. Wall Street staged a solid rebound yesterday, and Eurostoxx futures are pointing to a positive open on European bourses, though S&P futures have shed 0.8% in overnight trade and Asian markets turned lower, giving back intraday gains and turning negative in some cases. Japan’s Nikke 225 closed with a fractional 0.2% gain, while the Shanghai Composite is showing a loss of 1.8%, and South Korea’s KOSPI a 2.3% loss. This backdrop saw USDJPY and yen crosses grind lower, giving back some of the rebound gains seen yesterday during Wall Street’s rebound. Volatility is likely to remain high in the coming sessions, and we expect to see further dollar and yen outperformance relative to most other currencies.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 8th February 2018.






    FX News Today


    European Fixed Income Outlook: Asian stock markets moved mostly higher, with the CSI 300 underperforming once again and heading south, while the Nikkei closed with a gain of 1.13%, the ASX 200 moved up a further 0.24% and the Hang Seng 0.58% as of 6:35GMT. The yuan dropped after trade figures missed estimates and amid speculation that policy makers will move to rein in gains. Overnight, RBNZ held steady at 1.75%, matching widespread expectations. Governor Spencer remained dovish, saying “Monetary policy will remain accommodative for a considerable period. Numerous uncertainties remain and policy may need to adjust accordingly. NZDUSD has fallen to 0.7209 from 0.7258 ahead of the Bank’s announcement. Meanwhile today,German trade surplus narrowed as export growth slowed. Germany posted a sa trade surplus of EUR 21.5 bln in December, down from EUR 22.3 bln in the previous month. Exports rose just 0.3% m/m, after jumping 4.1% m/m in December, while import growth slowed to 1.4% m/m from 2.2% m/m. The December number left the total for Q4 at EUR 63.7 bln, up from EUR 62.4 bln in the third quarter of the year, which points to a positive contribution from net exports to overall growth in the last quarter, even if this is nominal data, impacted by exchange rate developments.


    FX Update: The dollar has traded mixed today, gaining moderately versus the euro, sterling, Australian dollar, among other currencies, but holding steady versus the Canadian dollar while gaining for a third straight day versus the yen. The Japanese currency has been coming under pressure as market participants trim safe haven trades as global markets find a toehold, albeit a fragile looking one. USDJPY logged a peak at 109.78, extending the rebound from Monday’s low at 108.45. EURJPY and other yen crosses have been seeing a similar price action, including AUDJPY. Japanese data showed the current account data for December at a surplus of Y797.2 bln, down from Y1,347.3 bln in the month prior. BoJ Suzuki said that there is no need for further monetary easing, contrasting in tone to Governor Kuroda, who earlier in the week said that there is no need to think about taking monetary stimulus away with inflation remaining below 1% and well off the BoJ’s 2% target. China January trade data came in much stronger than expected, though a near 40% export survey drove a sharp narrowing in the surplus, prompting the PBoC to guid the CNY lower today after the currency hit a two-year high yesterday. EURUSD lifted back toward 1.2300, reversing some of the losses seen yesterday after ECB’s Nowotny accused the U.S. Treasury of talking the dollar down.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 9th February 2018.






    FX News Today


    European Fixed Income Outlook: 10-year Bund yields are oscillating around the 0.76% mark in opening trade, little changed from yesterday, the 2-year Schatz yield is steady at -0.56%, and while at the short end peripherals are outperforming, at the long end spreads are little changed. With the stock correction ongoing there remains hope that it will prompt a rethink at central banks, although the BoE’s hawkish statement yesterday highlighted that this may not be the case and officials elsewhere have so far also remained pretty calm. UK100 and CAC 40 futures are in the red after a negative session in Asia, where the Nikkei closed down more than 2%, but GER30 futures are moving higher in tandem with U.S. futures. Stocks continued to sell off in Asia, after Wall Street plunged. China’s push for deleveraging and broader concerns about rising interest rates has seen markets correcting more than 10% so far with no real sign of intervention from authorities.


    FX Update: The dollar has been trading mixed, losing ground to the euro, sterling, among other currencies, while gaining on the yen and Australian dollar . USDJPY clocked a four-day low of 108.49 in the early Tokyo session before rebounding above 109.0, dropping amid a phase of yen buying after the Dow clocked a 4%-plus closing loss on Wall Street, before rebounding. The marked widening in the U.S. 10-year Treasury over JGB yield spread this week has gotten mention in market narratives as being behind the rebound in USDJPY, although the pair remains nearly 1% down on the week. The U.S. Senate passed the budget and stopgap funding bill, although too late to prevent a government shutdown, which, assuming the House follows suits and passes the bill before midday, will make the shutdown a very short-lived affair. The episode didn’t appear to have had much bearing on the dollar. Sterling, which corrected sharply following its post-BoE gains of yesterday, rallied after remarks by MPC member Broadbent in a BBC radio interview earlier, where he said that a couple of 25 bp rate hikes this year wouldn’t be a great shock to the economy. Cable hit an intraday high of 1.3978, but has remained well off the post-BoE peak at 1.4067. AUDUSD hit a six-week low at 0.7759 following the release of the RBA’s latest SOMP, which took aim at the Australian dollar while trimming employment forecasts.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 12th February 2018.






    FX News Today


    Volatility had mostly expired under the boot of the Federal Reserve QE policy stance and that of its central banking brethren. But as central bankers have begun to take their foot pedal by undertaking quantitative tapering and tightening, vol has proven that it’s “not dead yet,” but merely dormant until the appropriate moment.Looking ahead, input from around the globe should be mixed this week, with stock markets overseas taking their cue from a suddenly reflexive Wall Street.


    United States: U.S. economic calendar starts out at a snail’s pace, with the Treasury budget (Monday) forecast to post a $51 bln surplus (median $47 bln) for January vs -$23.2 bln. The NFIB small business optimism index (Tuesday) will provide the main entertainment. MBA mortgage market indices (Wednesday) are due, along with a potentially key update on January CPI, and January retail sales. The calendar really loads up (Thursday) with PPI, Philly Fed, Empire, claims, production, NAHB housing market index, and TIC data. The week will round out (Friday) with an update on January housing starts, which are expected to rise 0.6% to a 1.20 mln unit pace. Fedspeak will be unusually limited this week, with just Cleveland Fed hawk Mester on tap (Tuesday) to discuss the economic outlook and monetary policy before the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce from 8 ET.


    Canada: In Canada, the data and events docket is sparse. The December manufacturing report (Friday) is expected to reveal a 0.5% gain in shipment values after the 3.4% surge in November. The Teranet/National HPI for January is due Wednesday, while January existing home sales (Thursday) are on tap. ADP publishes its payrolls report for January (Thursday). BoC Deputy Governor Schembri (Thursday) speaks to the Manitoba Association for Business Economics in Winnipeg. His remarks will be available on the BoC’s website at 13:30 ET.


    Europe: Market volatility seems to be here to stay as investors adjust to the prospect of higher yields and less central bank support, and so far at least officials seem to be viewing developments with calm. Bundesbank President Weidmann played down both the strength of the EUR as well as the sell-off in stocks. Meanwhile data releases this week including Q4 GDP numbers and some final January inflation numbers, though they are unlikely to challenge the ECB’s baseline assumption of robust economic expansion amid a sanguine inflation environment that only gradually starts to move toward the ECB’s target. Eurozone GDP growth (Wednesday) is expected to be confirmed at 0.6% q/q , in line with the preliminary number. The German Q4 GDP (Wednesday) is expected at 0.7%, down from 0.8% in the previous quarter and Italy GDP growth at 0.6% q/q (median 0.5%). German HICP inflation (Wednesday) meanwhile is expected to be confirmed at just -0.7% y/y and the Spanish headline reading also at just 0.7% y/y, both far below the ECB’s upper limit for price stability. However, recent German wage deals suggest a gradual build in domestic price pressures going ahead as the labor market continues to tighten. The data calendar also has Eurozone production (Wednesday), and trade numbers (Thursday), as well as ECB speakers including Weidmann and Mersch. Supply comes from Spain and France on Thursday, while Germany auctions 30 year Bunds on Wednesday.


    UK: The BoE last week upgraded its assessment for economic growth while at the same time acknowledging that productivity has been lackluster, the sum of which led to an unexpected ratchet in hawkish guidance, leading to a possible rate hike from November to May. However, Brexit-related concerns — an area of emphasized contingency for the BoE — were soon to resurface. Brexit negotiations have entered a crucial phase, with both the EU and UK seeking to make a tentative accord on both a post-Brexit transition period and the form of a post-Brexit trading relationship, all in time for the EU leaders’ summit in late March. The data calendar this week is highlighted by the release of January inflation data (Tuesday), along with retail sales figures for the same month (Friday). The headline CPI expected to dip to 2.9% y/y after 3.0% in December, which would continue a modest climb down from the 3.1% cycle peak that was seen in November. An as-expected outcome would comfortably fit BoE projections, with the central bank forecasting CPI to have retreated to 2.2% at the two-year forecasting horizon in Q1 2020.


    Japan: Japan will be closed Monday from National Foundation Day. The markets will reopen Tuesday to he January PPI report, for which a 2.8% y/y reading is expected, slowing from the 3.1% pace previously. Preliminary Q4 GDP (Tuesday) is seen rising 1.1%, versus the previous 2.5% clip. December machinery orders (Thursday) are pencilled in posting a 2.0% m/m decline after climbing 5.7% in November. Revised December industrial production is also on deck Thursday.


    Australia: the employment report (Thursday) is the focus. The total employment is expected at 20.0k gain during January after the 34.7k gain in December. The unemployment rate is seen holding steady at 5.5%. The Reserve Bank of Australia’s Assistant Governor (Economic) Ellis speaks from Sydney (Tuesday). Governor Lowe appears before the House of Representatives’ Standing Committee on Economics (Friday).

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 13th February 2018.






    FX News Today


    European Fixed Income Outlook: Asian stock markets mostly moved higher. Japanese markets returned from yesterday’s holiday’s in a good mood, but pared gains as the yen strengthened and Nikkei closed with a loss of -0.65%, the Topix was down -0.88%. In Europe, 10-year Bund yields are down -0.7 bp at 0.744% in opening trade, the 2-year is up 0.3 bp at -0.591%, leaving the curve flatter. 10-year Treasury yields are down -1.1 bp at 2.848% while JGBs underperformed in Asia and the 10-year nudged slightly higher despite a stronger yen. European stock futures are heading south, in tandem with U.S. futures setting up European equities for a correction from yesterday’s gains. Markets remain nervous as long yields continue to trend higher. The focus in Europe today will be on U.K. inflation data, with CPI expected to fall below 3% for the first time since August.


    FX Update:The dollar traded mostly softer as the global equity rebound extended in Asia after Wall Street yesterday completed its biggest two-day rebound in just over two years. The U.S. currency has been correlating inversely with global stock market direction of late on the causation that risk-on phases have seen investors divest of dollars and dollar assets in favour of higher yielding opportunities, and vice versa. The narrow trade-weighted USD index has declined 0.3% to 89.94, earlier clocking a four-session low at 89.88. Cable and USDCAD have remained within their respective ranges from yesterday, while USDJPY and yen crosses have traded lower in Tokyo, where markets have reopened after a long weekend. Japan’s Nikkei 225 has bucked the global equity rebound, closing with a 0.8% loss, while U.S. equity index futures are also lower. AUDUSD saw a four-day high at 0.7874, aided by data showing Australian January business conditions rising to 19 from 13, with overall confidence lifting to a reading of 12, up from 11. The rand took a hit after the South African Congress ordered President Zuma to resign. News out of Japan today include remarks from Japan Economy Minister Motegi, who argued that Abe’s stance on monetary policy (i.e. ultra dovish) must be maintained. Japan January PPI came in at 0.3% m/m, as expected, after 2.7% y/y in the month prior.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 13th February 2018.






    FX News Today


    European Fixed Income Outlook: Chinese stock markets continued to recover, while Japanese stocks remained under pressure and the ASX 200, also closed in the red today, after gains yesterday. Wall Street managed to close with modest gains yesterday after recovering early losses, but the stronger yen hit Japanese stocks as investors prepare for U.S. CPI, which is judged to be the next directional signal for markets. Long yields declined across the board in Asia, with the 10-year JGB down -0.4 bp, the 10-year Treasury down -1.3 bp. U.S. stock futures and U.K. futures are higher, oil prices little changed at USD 59.17 per barrel.Japanese growth data today disappointed, with Q4 GDP falling to 0.5% q/q growth in they seasonally adjusted annualized figure, off the median forecast of 0.9% growth.


    German GDP growth slowed to 0.6% q/q in Q4, from 0.8% q/q in the third quarter of the year. German Jan HICP inflation was confirmed at 1.4% y/y in line with the preliminary number and versus 1.6% y/y in December. the national CPI rate was confirmed at 1.6% y/y versus 1.7% y/y in December. Energy price inflation continued to decelerate, which contributed to the decline in the headline rate and compensated for higher food prices. Food price inflation has been running at 3% and higher since August last year. Rent prices are also picking up. All in all a lower headline rate than initially expected and an HICP rate that is clearly below the ECB’s target, but with wage growth set to pick up after recent wage agreements and with an ever tighter labour market German inflation is likely to continue to trend higher, despite the set back at the start of the year.

    Main Macro Events Today


    Eurozone Prelim. GDP – the overall growth rate for the Eurozone is expected to be confirmed at 0.6% q/q , in line with the preliminary number. Anything less than major surprises won’t change the overall picture of a growth trajectory that is looking stronger than previously thought with confidence indicators remaining robust leaving the hawks at the ECB increasingly convinced that the Eurozone won’t need further net asset purchases beyond September.


    US Retail Sales – January retail sales forecast to rise 0.2% headline and 0.5% ex-auto.


    US CPI – expected to increase 0.3% headline and just 0.1% core, leaving core y/y at 1.7%, down from 1.8%
