Market Update – August 4 – BOE Day!

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USDIndex firmed to 106.82 on Fed outlook and solid data before sliding to 106.38 at the close. Yields spiked on top of the heavy losses Tuesday (10yr 2.51%), then slipped again on strong factory orders data, with an eye on Friday’s NFP which will partly determine the magnitude of Fed tightening (10yr 2.7191%). US Stocks supported by good earnings news, and gains accelerated after solid data, shrugging off the jump in bond yields as the Fed funds futures market repriced for a 50-50 potential for a 75 bp September rate hike. European FUTS also higher. Oil dipped to $90.35 after OPEC+ disappointed and agreed to a “very small increase” in September output of 100k barrels per day – the smallest output increase in its history. Gold holds at $1770. Today – BOE expected to hike by 50 bp but stresses data dependency of further tightening moves.

Overnight: US ISM-NMI services index rise to 56.7 from a 2-year low, US factory orders beat estimates climbed 2.0%. The rise joins big declines for the ISM, Chicago PMI, Dallas Fed and Philly Fed, but gains for the Richmond Fed and Empire State, to leave an 8-month producer sentiment pull-back from robust November peaks. Surging interest rates and a flattening in real household spending as prices rise are aggravating the downtrend, though sentiment also faces support as businesses continue to restock.

* USDIndex is holding above 106 at currently 106.30.
* Equities – USA30 rose 1.29% (32.74K), USA500 rallied to 1.59% (4.15K) and USA100 surged 2.59%.
* Yields 10-year lifted 2.5 bp to 2.73% and rates are also higher in Japan and Australia. The 10-year Bund yield is down -0.5 bp at 0.863% though after another contraction in German manufacturing orders flagged recession risks for the region.
* Oil – dips to at $90.35. OPEC+ dissapointed and agreed to a “very small increase” in September output of 100k barrels per day – the smallest ouput increase in its history.
* Gold – supprted by pullback in yields at $1770.
* FX Markets – EURUSD dip to looks weak at 1.0163 and Cable is at 1.2147. USDJPY has lifted to 134.20 as recent haven flows into the yen recede. AUD and NZD regained some ground as global risk sentiment improved a little and a record Australian trade surplus underlined the natural inflows supporting the currency.

Today – The BoE expected to hike by 50 bp but with a stress on the data dependency of further tightening moves. Front loading the tightening cycle also may also make sense in light of the leadership contest, with Liz Truss, the favorite to succeed Johnson mulling a shake up of the BoE. Investors are also waiting for details on the BoE’s plans for gilt sales. Governor Bailey previously indicated that the balance sheet will shrink at a pace of GBP 50-100 bln in the first year – including redemptions.

Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) NZDJPY (+0.99%) reverted week’s losses and currently at 84.47. MAs aligned higher, MACD lines rising, RSI 76. H1 ATR 0.202, Daily ATR 0.993.

Market Update – August 12.

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USDIndex lifted to 105 after dropping to a low of 104.50 after the early data, but is still heading for a weekly loss amid trimmed back expectations for the Fed’s tightening path. US Yields down, but the curve inverted further as the short end underperformed, Yields in Australia and to a lesser extent New Zealand backed up today. US Stocks closed mixed, while in Asia, Stocks in Japan rallied in catch up trade on their return from yesterday’s holiday, but elsewhere the picture looked patchy overnight. The ASX lost -0.5% and Hang Seng and CSI 300 are up 0.37% and down -0.06% respectively, after a narrowly mixed close on Wall Street. European and US futures are posting modest gains though. Oil pushed up to the $94 handle after the IEA upgraded its demand outlook yesterday, Gold sank to $1790 and BTC steady.

Fed’s Daly told Bloomberg yesterday that there is an improvement in inflation numbers, but repeated that its too early to declare victory over inflation, repeating that her base case is for a half-percentage point hike at the next meeting.

UK GDP contracted -0.1% q/q in the second quarter of the year, in line with our forecast and a tad less bleak than Bloomberg consensus, which predicted a contraction of -0.2% q/q. The -0.6% m/m decline in the monthly GDP number for June was sobering though and backed the BoE’s bleak outlook for the economy, which seems to be heading for a recession amid the cost of living crisis, the fallout from Brexit and political turmoil in Westminster.

* USDIndex dropped to a low of 104.50 after the early data, but bounced to 105.18 by the close 4%.
* Equities – USA100 off -0.58%, additionally hurt by the run up in rates. The USA500 was -0.07% lower, and the USA30 was 0.08% firmer.
* Yields 10-year rate closed 12 bps higher at 2.89%. The 30-year cheapened 14 bps to 3.165%. The 2-year was up 2 bps to 3.235%. The curve was less inverted at -35 bps versus -44 bps Wednesday.
* Oil – $93.90, Brent at $99.22 per barrel, after the IEA upgraded its demand outlook yesterday.
* Gold –has been capped and it saw a low of $1783.67, before backing up to now $1790.87, as Treasury yields nudged lower.
Bitcoin struggling to break 25K resistance.
* FX Markets – EURUSD down to 1.0300, USDJPY steady at 133.35 and Cable holds at 1.2170 floor.

Today – US Michigan Index.

Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) NZDJPY (+0.70%) back to July’s highs at 86.00. MAs aligning higher, MACD lines extending higher, RSI 72.80 & rising, H1 ATR 0.167, Daily ATR 0.976. Key Resistance at 86.56.

Date : 29th August 2022.

Daily Market update: 29 August 2022.

Dollar on the front foot on the back of hawkish Jackson Hole comments by FED chair Powell.

Dollar Index

The dollar index ended Friday’s trading session with some exuberance, closing at the 108.73 level following a sustained hawkish tone from FED chair Powell at the Jackson Hole Symposium. His message was consistent with the narrative that the FED isn’t quite done yet fighting off inflation and a possible recession. Which essentially means Americans are going to have to brace for more interest rate hikes and consequently slower growth in the economy and a weaker job market.

Image

Technical Analysis:

In terms of market structure, last week saw the completion of the larger bullish continuation pattern (falling wedge) that found support from the 104.00 level and produced an impulsive wave that went on to revisit the 109.00 area last week. Considering current price action and how it is approaching the 20-year highs in the form of a smaller bullish continuation pattern (descending channel), it’s an increasing probability that price could continue beyond the 109.00 key level henceforth.

Stocks

On the back of the dollar strength, there was a selloff in US Stocks, with a 3% decline on the prospect of the FED remaining firm on a sustained period of further rate hikes.

*Dow: Reacted to the statements by plunging 3% (just over 1000 points) on the day.
*S&P 500: Reacted to the statements and fell by 3.4%.
*Nasdaq: Being heavily linked to the technology sector, the Nasdaq is particularly more sensitive to interest rate hikes and reacted by falling 3.9%.

Currencies

*Euro: EURUSD slipped back to below parity levels, closing the day at 0.99654.
*Pound: GBPUSD closed the day retesting the weekly low at 1.17391 after hitting a session high at 1.1900.

Commodities

*Gold: Remained pressured by Powell’s comments despite a momentary bounce earlier in the week, ending Friday’s session at the $1 738 mark.

*Oil: The black gold remained resilient last week, closing the week buoyed by verbal intervention from the Saudis concerning the possibility of cutting oil production. This potentially lends credence to the idea that the Saudis are unable to tolerate a price below $90 a barrel at the present moment.

Bitcoin

The leading cryptocurrency broke through the psychological $20 000 mark as bears largely drove the market last week, seeing a 20% decline in a week from a high of $25 211.

An interesting sidenote going into September is that Bitcoin has produced a bearish market environment in price for each of the past four months in the year. It’ll be interesting to see how it performs going into the new month and the last part of the year.

Today – Speeches from ECB’s Lane, Fed Vice Chair Brainard.
