MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 2nd April 2019.

FX News Today

* Wall Street was higher overnight, followed by the better than expected US manufacturing ISM and construction spending reports (they offset disappointing retail sales).

* JGB yields still moved higher, in tandem with most Asian stock markets, but the buoyant mood in equities that dominated yesterday’s session turned a bit more muted, as the focus turned from revived hopes on a US-Sino trade deal and a recovery in the manufacturing sector to Brexit risks.

* RBA left monetary policy on hold amid increased downside risks, but seems to be awaiting the fiscal injection that is expected to be unveiled today.

* UK Parliament rejected all options on Brexit compromise, customs union close miss.

* GBP was under pressure due to revived concerns of a no-deal scenario.

Charts of the Day

Image

Technician’s Corner

* GBPUSD is under pressure once again, trading southwards below its Pivot for the 10th consecutive hourly session. A breach and break of S1 at 1.3025 could suggest the retest of 26-day Support at 1.2970.

Overall outlook remains negative due to the descending triangle formation and the decreasing momentum indicators in the daily chart.

* BTCUSD – biggest mover – Spiked to 5013 from 4216. However, intraday the asset looks overbought, with RSI at 81, and a doji closing the past hour.

Main Macro Events Today

Currently it is retesting the 111.56, which is a breath above the upper BB level and coincides with FE161.80 extension (from March rebound) and the latest up fractal. This could be a retracement level for the asset.

FX News Today

* 10-year Treasury yields are down -1.1 bp at 2.485% and 10-year JGB yields fell back -2.9 bp to -0.069%.

* Stock markets failed to get lasting support from China stimulus hopes and the rebound in US payrolls on Friday. Indices climbed initially after a document published on the central government website yesterday suggested Beijing would step up the policy of targeted cuts to banks’ reserve ratios in a bid to encourage lending to small and medium sized companies.

* However, while the ASX still managed to close 0.54% higher, Chinese bourses erased earlier gains and Hang Seng and Shanghai Comp are down -0.03% and -0.87% respectively, while the CSI 300 blue chip index is down -0.75%. Topix and Nikkei also struggled and lost -0.42% and -0.25%.

* Earnings reports are coming into focus and investors are positioning for lacklustre results.

* US futures are also heading south, which suggests a correction from the six month high seen last week after the employment report. President Trump pressured the Fed to do more to sustain growth, while official comments from both sides suggest progress in trade talks.

* Oil prices are higher and the front end WTI future trading at USD 63.33 per barrel, amid concerns that fighting in Libya could lead to supply outages.

* 10-year Treasury yields are down -0.4 bp at 2.519% and JGB rates up 0.2 bp at -0.052%, as Asian stock markets traded narrowly mixed, with threats of new tariffs on European goods from President Trump adding to the cautious tone in the markets.
