USDJPY, H1

The better than expected general election result for the PM Abe has helped Japanese stocks to close at record highs. The key Nikkei 225 closed up 1.11% at 21,696, and the futures contract trades comfortably in excess of 21,700. The expectations are for continued stimulation from the BOJ. Conversely the JPY slide on the news with USDJPY gaping and breaking to new highs at 114.10, before filling the gap back to 113.60 to suggest further advance in the coming sessions today. Even the under pressure EURJPY broke over 134.00 before declining under the key 133.80 support. Bond yields also came under pressure following the election result with EGB yields decline, helped by Abe’s victory in Japan, which has underpinned the hopped for longer global central bank stimulus as the ECB prepares to announce its QE extension on Thursday. The 10-year Bund yield is currently down -2.0 bp at 0.43%, as the price rallies to 161.65.

FX News Today

European Outlook: Asian stock markets moved mostly higher overnight, as Japan’s equities continued to rally following Abe’s election win and on hopes of ongoing monetary stimulus. the CSI 300 and the ASX also shrugged off losses in the U.S. and moved higher, although the Hang Seng is marginally in the red and the ASX up a mere 0.06%. U.S. stock futures are up, FTSE 100 futures in the red and there is some caution settling in ahead of earnings reports, especially after the recent run higher in global markets. In Europe politics remain high on the agenda, as Catalonia’s government ponders the response to Madrid’s plans to take over direct control, while Brexit uncertainty lingers, although on the continent at least have long started to prepare for alternative suppliers and cut back business ties with the U.K.. Today’s calendar has French business confidence, as well as preliminary PMI readings for the Eurozone as well as the ECB’s bank lending survey.

FX Update: The dollar majors have posted relatively narrow ranges so far today. EUR-USD has settled around 1.1750 after logging a two-week low at 1.1724 late yesterday. Market participant will remain vigilant on developments in Spain, with Catalonian leaders threatening to unleash mass civil disobedience over the independence issue. A plenary meeting on Thursday’s in Catalan’s regional parliament has become a focal point, and there is some speculation that it may be used a cover for a vote on whether to unilaterally declare independence. We expect the euro to be a sell-on-rallies trade in the meantime. Elsewhere, USD-JPY recouped and settled to the mid 113s after logging a low late yesterday at 113.24. The low completed a correction from the three-month high seen yesterday at 114.10, which was seen as markets reacted to the resounding victory of Abe at weekend elections.

FX News Today

European Outlook: Asian stock markets moved cautiously higher, Japan underperform as the Nikkei pulled back from record highs and fluctuated with the Yen. It is currently down -0.43% as the Yen strengthened across the board. The Hang Seng recovered from yesterday’s correction, CSI 300 and ASX 200 are also higher, while U.S. and U.K. stock futures are in the red. Investors are turning cautious again and contemplate the recent run higher in global equities. The DAX managed to close above the 13000 mark again yesterday, but yesterday’s inflation warnings from Markit have increased speculation of a higher ECB taper than currently expected and lifted yields sharply and bond markets are likely to remain defensive ahead of tomorrow’s announcement. The focus today will be on the Ifo reading, which is expected to show broadly stable sentiment. The U.K. released the advance reading for Q3 GDP and we are looking for a steady quarterly growth rate of 0.3% q/q, in line with consensus.

Australia CPI slowed to a 1.8% y/y growth rate in Q3 from the 1.9% rate of increase in Q2. The slowing undershot expectations for a steady or faster annual growth rate (we projected 1.9%). CPI grew 0.6% in Q3 (q/q, sa) after the 0.2% rise in Q2. The “core” measures also came in on the soft side. The trimmed mean CPI grew 1.8% y/y, matching the 1.8% pace in Q2. The trimmed mean slowed to a 0.4% clip in Q3 (q/q, sa) from 0.5% in Q2. The growth rate for the weighted median CPI was 1.9%, steady compared to the revised 1.9% pace in Q2 (was +1.8%). The weighted median CPI grew 0.3% in Q3 (q/q, sa) after the revised 0.6% pace in Q2 (was 0.5%). Total and “core” CPI measures remain below the RBA’s 2-3% target band, consistent with no change in rates through the first half of next year. CB’s bank lending survey.

Main Macro Events Today

UK Q3 GDP – Expectations – 0.3% QoQ and 1.4% YoY

US Durable Goods – Expectations – CORE 0.5% and Headline 1.0%

Bank of Canada – Interest Rate Decision, Statement and Press Conference – Expectations – No change to rates but Hawkish outlook

FX News Today

After both Markit PMIs as well the Ifo reported mounting capacity pressures, there is a good chance that the ECB will cut back asset purchases by more than the EUR 30 bln that Bloomberg consensus suggests. However, while this is likely to see a knee jerk reaction on forex and bond markets, we expect Draghi to package the taper in a dovish statement and forward guidance, in particular leaving the option for another program extension open to dampen the impact and prevent “overreactions” on forex markets. Draghi will also confirm the sequence of exit steps, with rates expected to remain low well past the end of asset purchases, which with a 9 months program extension would push out any rate hike into 2019. And even with EUR 20 bln per months for another 9 months, the ECB will still extend its balance sheet by a further EUR 180 bln, so monetary policy will not only remain expansionary, it will be even more expansionary than now, with Draghi only gently taking the foot off the accelerator. Indeed, the good news this week was that while Bund yields jumped higher Eurozone peripherals actually mostly outperformed. So at least on that front Draghi can be a bit more confident that “less for longer” will not be a cause of a fresh wave of instability.

The euro has been trading buoyantly into the ECB announcement today. EURUSD clocked a one-week high of 1.1837 earlier in the Asian session, and while EURJPY and EURCHF have remained below their respective 22- and 33-month highs of yesterday, they remain underpinned, with both crosses having picked up from shallow dips. EURUSD has akey support/restance level at 1.1830 which represents the 38.2 Fibonacci retrace level from the September 8th high at 1.2092.

on the citizenship eligibility of lawmakers. FTSe 100 and U.S. stock futures are higher, but it remains to the seen whether the Eurozone can hold the Dfraghi induced gains from yesterday. And Spanish markets, which outperformed yesterday on reports that Puigdemont may be open to early elections, are likely to retreat again after the Catalan leader backtracked partly and ruled out early elections if Madrid doesn’t stop the process to take over control, thus setting the region on a confrontation course with Madrid, which is expected to get clearance from lawmakers today to directly take over control in the autonomous region. The data calendar is pretty empty today, with only German import prices at the start of the session, as well as French consumer confidence and the ECB’s survey of professional forecasters.

FX Action: USDJPY logged a fresh three-month high, at 114.26, making this the seventh up day out of the last nine sessions. EURJPY and most other yen crosses have also been underpinned over this period. The resounding mandate Abe won at Japan’s election of October 15 imparted a downward bias on the yen, as the prime minister’s favoured policy set includes a continued commitment to ultra-accommodative monetary policy, contrasting to the tightening path of the Fed and other central banks. USDJPY has support at 113.60, while the July peak at 114.49 provides an initial target. The year’s high, posted back in January, is at 118.61.

FX News Today

The U.S. calendar is packed with key events and data, but none more important than President Trump’s announcement of his choice for Fed chair. That will have implications for years to come. An announcement will be forthcoming this week; Powell as chair, and Taylor for vice chair?

United States: The FOMC meets this week, the Fed is unanimously expected to leave rates unchanged at its meeting Tuesday, Wednesday. Although the back-to-back quarterly growth rates of 3.1% and 3.0% for Q2 and Q3 could argue for a tightening, inflation remains tame, and more importantly, there has been no Fedspeak to suggest a move is imminent. No press conference. September income and consumption (Monday) will help fine tune the quarter’s GDP outlook after the report of a 3.0% growth rate last Friday. October consumer confidence is forecast rising to 121. The Chicago PMI should fall to 62.0 in October after jumping 6.3 points to 65.2 in September. ADP headlines (Wednesday) along with the October ISM manufacturing numbers. We’re projecting a 200k jump in private payroll from the ADP, while the manufacturing index should dip to 58.5. October vehicle sales (Thursday) should are expected to decline amid ongoing hurricane disruptions. September construction spending also is likely to be distorted by the various hurricane effects. Nonfarm payrolls (Friday) are forecast surging 320k -400k in October, as the labor market gets back in gear following the hurricane disruptions that knocked employment down by 33k in September. The unemployment rate should hold at 4.2%. The ISM nonmanufacturing index (Friday) should dip to 58.5 in October (median 58.5), giving back some of the 4.5 point gain to 59.8 in September, which was the highest since August 2005.

The earnings slate remains very heavy, though not as bad as last week, which was the busiest for the Q3 season

Canada: August GDP (Tuesday) is expected to rise 0.1% m/m after the flat reading in July. The industrial product price index is seen expanding 0.5% in September after the 0.3% rise in August, as firmer gasoline prices more than offset the drag of a stronger loonie. Employment (Friday) is projected to grow 20.0k in October after the 10.0k gain in September. The unemployment rate is seen at 6.2%, matching September’s rate. Average weekly earnings are expected to expand at a 2.2% y/y pace, matching the growth rate in September. The trade deficit (Friday) is anticipated to narrow to -C$3.0 bln in September from -C$3.4 bln in August. Poloz and Wilkins due to speak Tuesday.

Europe: German HICP (Monday) is seen steady at 1.8%, French inflation reading (Tuesday) likely to nudge higher to 1.2%. The overall Eurozone HICP (Tuesday) should be unchanged at 1.5%. Eurozone manufacturing PMI (Thursday) expected to be confirmed at 58.6. Advanced readings for French GDP and overall Eurozone Q3 GDP (both Tuesday) to show quarterly growth rates that are in line with the first quarter at 0.5% and 0.6% respectively. Spanish GDP meanwhile is expected to nudge lower slightly to 0.8%. The recovery clearly has reached the job market and PMIs also suggest ongoing job creation as companies struggle to fill still strong orders growth and expand production. The German labour market is already very tight and jobless numbers (Monday) are in our view likely to pick up slightly after a stronger than expected dip in September. Still, even the expected pick up of 4K, would leave the October jobless rate at a very low 5.6%. For the Eurozone unemployment rate (Tuesday) we are looking for a decline to 9.0% from 9.1%

UK: UK data reports over the last week have mostly disappointed. The calendar is highlighted by the BoE’s November Monetary Policy Committee (announcing Thursday), which will be accompanied by the publication of its quarterly Inflation Report. Following the BoE’s guidance, markets are fully expecting the central bank to make its first hike of the repo rate in 10 years, taking it to 0.50% from 0.35%.We expect the BoE to package the tightening in dovish guidance. Data releases this week include September data from the BoE on lending (Monday), which we expect to show mortgage approvals come in near unchanged at 66.0k, October Gfk consumer confidence (Tuesday), which we forecast dipping to -10 from -9 in the month prior, and the October PMI surveys. We expect the manufacturing PMI (Wednesday) to come in at 55.9 which would be the same reading as in September. We anticipate the servicers PMI (Friday) in at 53.3 after 53.6 in the month previous.

China: CFLP October manufacturing PMI (Tuesday) is forecast sliding to 52.0 from 52.4. The Caixin/Markit PMI (Wednesday) likely eased to 50.5 from 51.0.

Japan: The BoJ headlines and on Tuesday, no policy changes are expected. The Bank will likely recommit to ultra-accommodative policy settings. As for data, September retail sales (Monday) are expected to dip to a 0.5%. September unemployment (Tuesday) is seen unchanged at 2.7%, with the job offers/seekers ratio likely to tick up to 1.53. PCE (due Tuesday), should show consumption at a 0.5% y/y pace from 0.6%. September industrial production (Tuesday) is penciled in at -2.0% y/y, tumbling from August’s 2.0%. September housing starts (Tuesday) are expected to contract further to a -3.0% y/y rate from -2.0% previously, while construction orders are also slated (Tuesday). Also on the slate are October manufacturing PMI (Wednesday) and October consumer confidence (Thursday), expected at 43.5 from 43.9. Japan is closed Friday for Culture Day.

Australia: CPI (Wednesday) is the focus this week, with a 0.9% gain expected in Q3 after the tame 0.2% rise in Q2. The trade price report (Thursday) is expected to reveal a 1.0% drop in Q3 import prices after the 0.1% dip in Q2. Export prices are seen falling 3.0% in Q3 following the 5.7% pull-back in Q2. The Q3 PPI is due Friday. Reserve Bank of Australia Deputy Governor Debelle speaks (Thursday) on “Uncertainty.”

FX News Today

European Outlook: Asian stock markets moved sideways overnight. U.K. and U.S. stock futures are little changed. Japanese markets pared losses as investors bought on dips, amid hopes of better earnings. The BoJ left policy on hold and while new board member Kataoka opted for additional easing, against a majority in favour of unchanged policy, the announcement had little impact on markets, with investors remaining hesitant to push indices higher ahead of a 3-day weekend in Japan and U.S. jobs data later in the week. The BoJ keeps the -0.1% rate with target remaining at 2% inflation and the 10-year JGB yield target at around 0%. In Europe most markets closed narrowly mixed on Monday, with only Spain rallying as Catalonia risks are being priced out. Today’s calendar has inflation data from Italy, France and for the Eurozone as a whole as well as GDP numbers from France and the Eurozone, the former was already released and came in at 0.5% q/q, as expected, but after last week’s ECB meeting the data won’t have any impact on the policy outlook.

FX Update: The euro rally of yesterday has run out of puff, with EURUSD settling around 1.1630-40, below the 1.1657 high, while EURJPY has remained heavy, near yesterday’s 131.45 low. The yen, meanwhile, remains underpinned despite dovish guidance from the BoJ. USDJPY logged a 12-day low at 112.95, and AUDJPY has remained near the seven-month lows seen yesterday. The BoJ did the expected, and left policy on hold at its meeting today. New board member Kataoka voted for additional easing, while Governor Kuroda espoused dovish guidance in his press conference, warning that “abnormal” yen appreciation would hurt the economy and accelerate deflation, and that the central bank will continue with “powerful” accommodative monetary policy. In the U.S., political intrigue along with the announcement, promised to be made tomorrow, of the new Fed chair, will remain focal points for markets.

Main Macro Events Today

Eurozone GDP and Core CPI – Expectations – at 0.5% q/q from 0.6% and at 1.2% from 1.3% respectively.

Canadian GDP- Expectations -0.1% increase in August.

BoC – Governor Poloz Speaks before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance, in Ottawa.

FX News Today

European Outlook: Japan led a rally in Asian stocks, with technology shares boosting indices to near all-time highs in brisk trade as the Yen dropped and the manufacturing PMI inched higher. U.S. futures are also climbing higher amid ongoing optimism about tax reforms and U.K. futures are equally underpinned. The CSI 300 is in the red, but all in all an optimistic start to the month, as markets focus on today’s conclusion of its 2-day FOMC meeting with no change expected. The BoE will conclude its meeting tomorrow and markets are expecting a reversal of last year’s “emergency” rate cut following the Brexit vote. Today’s calendar is quiet, with many country’s and regions across Europe celebrating All Saints Day. The U.K. and Switzerland release manufacturing PMIs and the U.K. also has house price data from Nationwide.

FX Update: The dollar has been trading mixed so far today, losing ground to an outperforming pound, holding net steady versus the euro while gaining on the yen. The pound traded firmer for a third consecutive day, logging a near-two-week high versus the dollar, at 1.1.3292 and a one-month high against the euro. Sterling markets are anticipating the BoE to hike the repo rate for the first time in a decade at tomorrow’s conclusion of the Monetary Policy Committee meeting. EURUSD, meanwhile, continued to gravitate around the 1.1630-40 area, and USDJPY logged a three-session high of 113.97 amid a backdrop of rallying stock markets across Asia and globally. EURJPY also hit a three-session peak, and other yen crosses also ground higher. Markets are expecting a tax reform announcement from the Trump administration, which is expected to happen on Thursday (a day later than previously advertised), and which is feeding a risk-on sentiment in markets. We expect the prevailing forex trends to hold good for now.

Main Macro Events Today

UK Manufacturing PMI – Expectations – nearly unchanged at 55.8 from 55.9 on September.

US ADP Non-Farm Employment Change – Expectations – a 200K jump in private payrolls from 135K last month.

US Manufacturing PMI – Expectations -a dip to 59.5

FOMC Statement – FOMC expected to announce no change to the 1.00% to 1.25% policy band today at 18:00 GMT . The policy statement is expected to reiterate the general outlook of moderate growth and subdued inflation, though there could be an upgrade on the economy given the swath of better than expected data, and the report of 3% growth in Q3.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 2nd November 2017.

FX News Today

European Outlook: Asian stock markets ex-Japan are mostly slightly down in the wake of the as-expected Fed announcement yesterday. Japan managed to outperform and the Nikkei is up 0.58%. U.S. and U.K. stock futures are heading south as attention turns to the BoE meeting today, which is expected to bring the first rate hike since 2007. Investors will are also awaiting the decision on the next Fed chair and U.S. job data at the end of the week. Against that data releases are likely to fade into the background. They include the final readings of Eurozone manufacturing PMIs as well as German jobless numbers and the U.K. construction PMI.

FX Update: The dollar has traded softer following reports run by MarketWatch and Bloomberg saying that Fed Governor Powell will be nominated to the Fed Chairmanship position later on today. Powell is seen as one of the more dovish candidates for the top job at the Fed, similar to Yellen. Yesterday’s conclusion of the FOMC, meanwhile, predictably left policy unchanged, and while the Fed upgraded growth projections, core inflation was deemed to be remaining “soft.” The statement was consistent with an already discounted 25bp rate hike in December. This backdrop imparted a modest upside bias on EURUSD, which logged a one-week high at 1.1671 in Asian trade, while USDJPY declined under 114.00, leaving a three-day high at 114.28. The dollar also ebbed versus the Australian and other dollar bloc currencies, and most other units.

Main Macro Events Today

BoE Inflation Report and Monetary Policy – Following the BoE’s guidance, markets are fully expecting the central bank to make its first hike of the repo rate in 10 years, taking it to 0.50% from 0.25%. This would undo the ’emergency’ rate cut of August 2016, which came amid the panicky, although short-lived, period following the vote to leave the EU. Today’s MPC announcement will be accompanied by the publication of its quarterly Inflation Report.

BoE Governor Carney- speaking at 12;30 GMT along with other MPC members, about the Inflation Report, in London.

US Jobless Claims – Expectations – 2K rise from 233K last week at the Alternative Reference Rates Committee Round-table.

Fedspeak – Governor Powell and Fed’s Dudley are due to speak today

FX News Today

European Outlook: Asian stock markets traded mixed, as investors digest U.S. tax cut plans, Powell’s nomination as Fed chair ahead of today’s U.S. jobs report. Japan was closed for a holiday, Hang Seng and ASX moved higher, but the CSI 300 was under pressure and the Shanghai Composite Index is heading for a weekly decline of over 1% led by technology shsares and brokerages following the Communist Party Congress. UK100 futures as well as U.S. futures are moving higher though. U.K. markets remain underpinned by yesterday’s BoE report, which lifted rates, but didn’t put further moves on the agenda. This saw U.K. yields heading south yesterday and the UK100 bagging a 0.90% gain. Today’s local calendar is pretty empty, leaving markets to digest other news and look ahead to U.S. data in the afternoon.

BoE Delivers First Rate Hike in 10 Years: The BoE did the expected and hiked rates by 25 bp to 0.50%, thus effectively reversing the “emergency” post-Brexit vote cut from last year. There were 2 dissenters and after yesterday’s move the central bank no longer warns that markets may be underestimating future rate hikes.

President Trump officially nominated Jerome Powell as Fed chairman, replacing Janet Yellen. Powell is seen as a moderate and he has had experience in the government, the private sector, and at the Fed. He’s unlikely to make any abrupt changes to Yellen’s gradualist normalization path and should be a solid facilitator between the hawks and doves.

Main Macro Events Today

US NFP – Expectations – expected to surge at 312k in October, as the labor market gets back in gear following the hurricane disruptions that knocked employment down by 33k in September.

US Unemployment Rate – Expectations – unchanged at 4.2% for October.

US PMIs – Expectations – The ISM nonmanufacturing indexshould dip to 58.5 in October.
