    China’s Retail Sales Growth Impact & Forecast

    The Chinese economy is going through a difficult time due to the spread of the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19). Meanwhile, China faces serious challenges from soaring energy prices. Coal and natural gas prices have soared over the past few months. As a result, the government has demanded that the private sector be restricted from working during peak hours.

    However, according to data released by the National Bureau of Statistics, the country’s economy is in relatively good shape. Since October, retail sales in China have increased by 4.9%. This is higher than the average of 3.5%. It was also relatively worse than the previous 4.4%. Meanwhile, according to data, industrial production increased by 3.5% in October. This is better than the average of 3.0% and the previous 3.1%. Sentiment in the Chinese real estate market is being shaken by a deepening debt crisis as real estate giants China Evergrande and Kaisa Group face default. “We expect policymakers to take more easing measures to prevent growth from falling too much,” said Oxford’s Kuijs, adding that weaker demand is driving the broader industry slowdown rather than just supply constraints. Weakening demand is causing not only supply constraints, but also a broader industry slowdown, he added.

    Policy sources and analysts told Reuters that China’s central bank will be cautious about easing monetary policy to stimulate the economy as slowing economic growth and rising factory inflation fuel fears of stagflation. NBS spokeswoman Fu Linghui said at a briefing in Beijing on Monday that signs of stagflation are caused by short-term factors such as high global commodity prices. Capital investment continued to slow, according to 4,444 NBS data, up 6.1% in the first 10 months compared to the same period a year ago, up from a 6.2% increase in Reuters and a 7.3% increase in January-September.

    EUR/JPY broke its eighth straight day of decline and is hovering around the 130.00 level

    The pair has been under pressure from an upward US dollar backed by inflation data. In addition, the adjusted decline in US Treasury yields also contributed to the negative trend. The US dollar will strengthen on Tuesday as it continues to hold its 16-month high near 95.40. Meanwhile, US Treasury yields were moderated by mixed market sentiment ahead of the release of US retail sales data this afternoon.

    In addition to data on US retail sales, market sentiment will also be influenced by future data on the gross domestic product (GDP) in the euro area and a speech by European Central Bank (ECB) President Christine Lagarde. According to previous data, industrial production in the Euro zone fell 0.2% m/m in September and 5.2% in the last 12 months. Japan reported weak third-quarter GDP data and Bank of Japan (BOJ) Governor Kuroda hinted that the COVID-19 financing program could be phased out.

    Meanwhile, the dollar continued to strengthen. The reason could be a hint that the Fed will cut rates at the November 23rd FOMC meeting. This has weakened the yen’s attractiveness as a safe haven. The pair’s price movement could be a tailwind due to US President Joe Biden’s $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill.

    RBNZ Survey – Inflation is expected to rise & to be around 3%

    Aggressive polls at the Reserve Bank showed a very sharp rise in expectations for future inflation. The results of the RBNZ’s latest quarterly forecast survey could fuel speculation that the RBNZ could raise its official cash rate by up to 50 basis points in a November 24 interest rate review. Click here for details of the survey results. The RBNZ has been tracking this survey very closely and in some cases was very strongly influenced by the results of interest rate decisions. At least for the latest results, next week’s OCR should increase by 25 basis points to 0.75%. Satish Ranchhod, a senior economist at Westpac, said the latest poll, along with other recent data, “shows increased inflationary pressures in the medium term.” Most notable in the survey is two-year inflation expectations.

    In general, these numbers do not fluctuate much between surveys. However, in the latest survey, inflation expectations rose from 2.27% three months ago to 2.96% in two years. This is a huge step according to the criteria of this study.

    The 2.96% value is the highest since the 3.00% value in the same survey in June 2011. Prior to June 2011, the same survey had to go back to the early 1990s to find higher numbers. Short-term inflation expectations for one year have risen from 3.02% three months ago to 3.7% in the latest survey.

    Spotlight on Retail Sales of Pound and Canadian Dollar

    GBP/CAD is still moving lower and is trading moderately near 1.6990 early on Friday. The cross hit a one-month high the day before retreating from the 50-day EMA. At the same time, a bearish top candle can be observed during the daily timeframe, indicating further weakness in the asking price.

    Key points:


    • GBP/CAD continues to retreat from the 50-day EMA to the previous resistance level. The bullish MACD signal is testing further bearishness, with the 200-day EMA and end-September levels challenging for buyers.
    • UK retail sales are likely to reverse the month-on-month decline, raising concerns for the Bank of England over rate hikes.


    Day Ahead

    EUR: There is a relatively calm day ahead in the economic calendar. The focus is data on wholesale inflation in Germany for October. A new surge will test transition theory while ECB Governor Lagarde seeks to bring the status quo to the market. On monetary policy, ECB President Lagarde will also speak later in the afternoon. As of this writing, the euro is up 0.01% to $1.1372.

    Pound: The economic calendar is having a busy day. This morning’s focus is the October retail sales of units. The pound is expected to have a strong impact following Wednesday’s inflation data. As of this writing, the pound is up 0.04% to reach $1.3499. The future of economic power is a quiet day. Economic data is limited to housing data and has little impact on the dollar. However, it is expected that the chatter of the FOMC members will also have an effect. FOMC members Waller and Clarida will perform today. The US Dollar Spot Index closed down 0.30% on Thursday at 95.544.

    Gold price outlook: XAU/USD Bulls bullish amid weak US dollar in Asia

    Asia’s gold is rallying as the US dollar offset some of its overnight gains as the US dollar breaks new cyclical highs following the re-election of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. According to ANZ Bank analysts, the market immediately began pricing in relation to a gradual reduction in asset purchases and interest rate hikes through June. “This caused gold to plummet after 10-year Treasury yields raised more than 8 basis points.”

    Meanwhile, yellow metals were supported by rising idle winds. “This ultimately catalyzed the company to break out of a months-long decline from historical highs, driven by a significant wave of CTA short coverage and growing Chinese demand for gold, explained analysts at TD Securities. “But we do note that the battle between high inflation and market prices caused by central bank inflation is not over.”

    Going forward, the Fed minutes will be events for the dollar and yellow metal. Markets will be looking for new clues as to when to raise interest rates on how quickly the Fed can shrink. “The protocol will undoubtedly reflect a variety of risk perspectives, but most officials don’t think they will be in a hurry to raise rates given the massive net job loss and expected slowing inflation, said analysts at TD Securities.

    USD/JPY rise above 115.00 when bullish track hits 44-month high

    The USD/JPY bull is breathing around 115.10 after a spike that broke a multi-month high earlier on Wednesday. At the same time, the yen is struggling to extend its two-day rally amid falling US Treasury yields. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield fell 0.8 basis points (bps) from its highest level since October 22, or about 1.65% at the latest, amid a lack of significant data/events. Yields jumped to a one-month high before mixed US data stopped bonds rising. Geopolitical concerns and recent COVID-19 concerns appear to be playing a challenging role for USD/JPY buyers in recent times.

    Japan’s geopolitical tensions with China are escalating over issues related to Vietnam. The defense ministers of Japan and Vietnam reached an agreement on the 10th that “they are opposed to secretly mentioning the sea in response to a unilateral attempt to change the status quo in the region said Kyodo News.” The Netherlands is experiencing a COVID-19 crisis and has recently announced regional closures, but the situation has not improved, driving demand for the Japanese yen, especially amid falling yields.

    “The Netherlands started transporting COVID-19 patients across the border to Germany on Tuesday to ease pressure on Dutch hospitals, which are scaling back regular care to deal with a surge in COVID-19 cases,” said Reuters. Also positive for the JPY could be the improvement in COVID-19 conditions at home and the government’s readiness to help the nation overcome the pandemic led economic hardships. Recently, Nikkei reported that Japan will allocate about 600 billion yen ($5.2 billion) from its fiscal 2021 supplementary budget to support advanced semiconductor manufacturers including the world’s No. 1 contract chipmaker, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC), per Reuters. Against this backdrop, US equity futures are struggling to maintain their rebound from their two-week lows, while Asia Pacific stocks are trading alongside the Japanese Nikkei 225, down 0.80% at press time.

    USD/JPY could see further declines when considering the consolidation of returns along with a cautious outlook ahead of major US data/events.

    EUR/GBP hovers around 0.8400, ECB’s Lagarde and BOE’s Bailey keep an eye on

    EUR/GBP remained bearish in the early hours of Thursday morning in Europe. Cross-currency pairs are approaching their annual lows recorded on Monday as fears over coronavirus in the eurozone are resurfaced. Record high cases in Germany, followed by Austria and the Netherlands, have resulted in multiple warnings reminiscent of the blockade in the region. Coronavirus infections broke records in parts of Europe on Wednesday as Europe became the epicenter of the epidemic that caused new travel restrictions. It is worth noting that the resurgence of the virus eases pressure on the European Central Bank (ECB) to follow the Western banks and thus puts further downward pressure on EUR/GBP.

    In a recent commentary, Boštjan Vasle, a member of the Governors’ Council and Governor of the Central Bank of Slovenia, along with politicians Fabio Panetta and Robert Holzmann, ignored the rate hike negotiations. In contrast, European Central Bank governor and Bundesbank president Jens Weidmann said on Wednesday that inflation risks dominate in Germany and the rest of the eurozone. With block wrestling with covid, the UK is not far behind as daily infections exceed 43,000 and virus deaths drop to 149. However, Sky News cites UK health experts to point out the risk of a surge in COVID-19 cases in the new year.

    Coronavirus pessimism and consequently increased pressure on the European Central Bank (ECB) to expand monetary easing, and in contrast to optimistic UK fundamentals, recent headlines on Brexit suggest the resilience of the pound I support it. Downing Street spokesperson #10 said there were significant differences between the UK and EU views on Northern Ireland, but British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s willingness to work hard to address the issue is encouraging in the market. . But British politicians also agreed with Irish Prime Minister Michael Martin that Article 16 would not come into force until negotiations broke down.

    GBP/JPY: Brexit, full-fledged bear dominating below 153.00 on COVID-19 chatter

    GBP/JPY licks the cut at the 152.70 area after hitting a week-long high before hitting a two-week low of 152.47 ahead of the London opening on Friday. The Cross saw a double attack as it served food to bears amid fears of coronavirus and Brexit-related concerns. 4,444 French fishermen prepare to shut down Channel Tunnels and major ports on Friday to celebrate their disappointment over the UK’s fishing license regulations.

    The British government has already urged politicians not to use illegal means, but this is unlikely to stop France’s outrage.
    On the positive side, Maroš Šefchovic’s visit to London, an EU exit officer, is a British diplomat if both parties agree on a border protocol with Northern Ireland (NI), which has recently shown positive progress. It is worth noting that the previous day’s refusal of Bank of England (BOE) Governor Andrew Bailey’s inflation concerns reduces the likelihood of a rate hike and also affect GBP / JPY prices.
    Or, Japan’s recent announcement and Moody’s rating outlook are adding to more robust inflation data to further drive the yen’s appreciation.

    “If a new coronavirus variant is identified, we will revisit border control as needed,” said Hirokazu Matsuno, Chief Cabinet Secretary of Japan, according to Reuters. As for data, Japan’s consumer price index (CPI) rose from 0.1% year-on-year to 0.5% in November, and fresh food CPI fell from 0.4% in market forecasts to 0.3%. 0, 1% faster. In addition, CPI ex Food and Energy were 0.3% of expectations on an annual basis.

    Elsewhere, concerns about the Fed’s rate hikes at the wrong time are squeezing market sentiment and supporting the US dollar’s demand for safe haven. However, the Covid19 issue has spread outside Europe’s first horror zone due to concerns about a variant of the official name B.1.1.529, which is related to South Africa and is unaffected by the vaccine. For this reason, the World Health Organization (WHO) and UKHSA held a special session on Friday.

    Sentiment on 10-year Treasuries yields on US Treasuries fell 8 basis points (bps) to 1.565%, extending Wednesday’s recession from its monthly highs and S & P 500 futures falling 1.0% at the latest.

    GBP/USD remains weak below 1.3350 amid omicron concerns and Brexit concerns

    GBP/USD is trading moderately below 1.3350, consolidating from its 11-month low of 1.3278, with risk sentiment improving slightly. Despite the risk reset, the risk remains downward biased against the majors as they continue to face the latest Omicron covid and ongoing Brexit issues.

    Risk sentiment took a hit in early Asia, and concerns over the latest covid variant shook the market, propelling the overall rebound of the US dollar. South Africa’s recent surge in COVID-19 cases, which appears to have been triggered by a new strain, is urging countries around the world to impose new restrictions. However, Dror Mezorah, head of the coronavirus department at Hadassah University Hospital in Ein Karem, said the clinical status of people infected with Omicron is encouraging.

    Despite risk recovery, sentiment around the pound can remain compromised by ongoing Brexit concerns. Vice-President of the European Commission, Margaritis Schinas, said Britain needed to resolve the post-Brexit immigration issue on Saturday.

    Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron attacked British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in a letter tweeted Friday and accused him of being “not serious.” This is in light of the ongoing tensions surrounding the Franco-British fishery. We will continue to lead the update of Omicron Covid variants and their impact on risk sentiment on Monday’s UK and US economic calendars. Investors are trying to reassess the Bank of England’s (BOE) rate hike expectations in light of recent Covid claims. This could be a further downside to the UK currency.

    Options market USD/CAD turns most bearish in last two weeks & expecting volatility in future

    WTI crude fell to $70.40 in an early two-day rally on Tuesday. While the 2-day symmetrical triangle limits Black Gold’s recent move, adding 50 HMA to the RSI’s decline and the upper barrier is encouraging for sellers. However, a clear downward break of the triangular support level near $69.20 at the time of issue was necessary for oil sellers to regain control.

    After that, a Friday low of $68.30 will attract the market’s attention before lowering the WTI bearish to a September low of around $67 and a July low of around $65. On the other hand, the rise in commodity prices will be a nutritious nut around $72.00 including the triangular resistance and 50 HMA. Even if the price crosses $72, Friday’s high of $74 could provide an additional filter before oil moves up to $77.60. This implies an upside on the 25th of November.

    The options market scenario supports USDCAD sellers ahead of today’s testimony of Canada’s GDP and Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell. The reason for the bearish trend may be related to the cautious optimism of the market on Monday. However, recent doubts about the ability of the vaccine to tame a South African Covid variant known as Omicron support US $ / Canadian dollar buyers. With that in mind, the USD / CAD recorded a 0.30% daytime rise of about 1.2790 at the time of the press.
