MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 9th October 2019.

FX News Today

* European Outlook: Stock market sentiment remains very cautious with Brexit risks and signs of fresh US-Sino tensions ahead of this week’s trade talks weighing on confidence.

* Talks between the UK and the EU on trade are expected to officially break down this week, with “leaked” memos out of Westminster putting the blame firmly in the EU’s court and threatening those EU countries that support another delay of the Brexit date. UK PM Johnson is due to meet Irish Pm Varadkar later.

* Overnight – US-China relations stressed further as new visa restrictions by the US were introduced. Trade talks on going and high level contact still scheduled Thursday & Friday.
Equities markets fell 1.5% in the US and Nikkei has closed down 0.6%.

* USD keeps the bid due to safe haven status, even after a Dovish Powell hints at rate cut (s) and starting to repurchase assets again.

* EURUSD pulled back to 1.0945 lows into the London close, after failing to decisively take out the key 1.1000 level over the past four sessions. US based accounts were sellers from near the open, stepping in over 1.0990. Safe-haven flows into Dollars and Treasuries were noted. Last Thursday’s 1.0940 low is the near term downside target, followed by Wednesday’s 1.0904 bottom. Trades on London open at 1.0960 pivot point.

* Cable Cable was crushed to one-month low of 1.2195 in N.Y. morning trade, down from London highs over 1.2300. The BBC cited a UK government source saying that Germany’s Merkel conveyed to PM Johnson that a deal based on his government’s proposals was “overwhelmingly unlikely.”. The development makes it a near certainty that Johnson won’t have a deal by the October-19 deadline set out in the newly created parliamentary bill that would require the prime minister to ask the EU for an extension in Brexit to January 31.

Main Macro Events Today

* JOLTS Job Openings (USD, GMT 14:00) – JOLTS define Job Openings as all positions that have not be filled on the last business day of the month. July’s JOLTS job openings came out at 7.217M.

* FOMC Minutes (USD, GMT 18:00) – The FOMC Minutes report provides the FOMC Members’ opinions regarding the US economic outlook and any views regarding future rate hikes. FOMC trimmed rates 25 bps, as expected, but with 3 dissents. In the last FOMC statement, on July 31 decision showed mixed views, two dissents for steady policy, two participants who wanted 50 bps in cuts and several wanted steady stance.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 10th October 2019.


Image

FX News Today

* US yields corrected slightly from yesterday’s highs. Asian bond markets remained under pressure, while stock markets traded mixed with conflicting trade headlines making for a jumpy session.

* Bloomberg reported that the US is weighing to agree to a previously hammered out currency pact as a team of Chinese negotiators, including Vice Premier Liu He arrived in Washington.

* There were also reports in the US that the Trump administration will grant licences that would allow US firms to sell no sensitive supplies to Huawei.

* US stock futures are in red, with the headlines accompanying the trade talks, likely to keep markets volatile and jittery.

* GER30 and UK100 futures are slightly higher, though, with Brexit developments in focus as UK PM Johnson is travelling to Ireland in search for a breakthrough on the Irish border conundrum.

* German trade surplus declined as exports dropped -1.8% m/m in August.

* ECB’s Rehn plays down divisions at ECB, banks on Lagarde to heal the rift. The Governing Council member said the FT story that said Draghi ignored advice from his own officials to push through the restart of asset purchases was “greatly exaggerated”, adding that Lagarde’s team-building ability should help to bridge the splits at the council.

* The WTI future fell back to $52.54 per barrel.

Charts of the Day

Image

Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD rally above 1.099 in the European open. The 1.1000 level remains key for EURUSD, with Wednesday marking the fifth consecutive session that EURUSD has tried and failed to break through the level. A decisive close above this level could strengthen the positive bias for EUR.

* USDJPY was a bit stronger through the Asia session, rallying to 107.76 highs, and remaining above the 107.40 since then. Better risk taking levels brought buyers in, as hopes for progress on the US/China trade war got a lift into Thursday’s high-level meetings in Washington. China said that it was open to a partial trade agreement. Given the history of the talks however, a smooth outcome is anything but guaranteed, and Yen bears will have to remain on their toes.

* USDCAD headed to 1.3310 down from Asian highs of 1.3344. The modest sell-off came as oil prices rallied on news there may be some progress on the US-China trade front. The 200-day moving average at 1.3288 remains a good support level, with the pairing holding above the level for nearly a week now. Further oil price gains could see a break though, with the next downside target being the 1.3260-70 region.

Main Macro Events Today

* Gross Domestic Product and Manufacturing Production (GBP, GMT 08:30) – GDP is the economy’s most important figure. August’s GDP is expected to lower to 0% following the 0.3% reading from last month. Meanwhile, Industrial and Manufacturing Production will be out as well. These two indices are expected to have fallen, with both providing a downwards contribution of 0.1% m/m in August.

* ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts (EUR, GMT 11:30) – Event of the Week –The ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts, similar to the FOMC minutes, provide information with regards to the policymakers’ rationale behind their decisions. In the last ECB meeting, ECB not only cut the deposit rate but also announced a new open-ended asset purchase program, worth EUR 20 bln a month, while removing the time frame in the rate guidance.

* Consumer Price Index ex Energy and Food (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Consumer Price Index is suggestive of how the economy is performing, with expectations standing flat for the September headline release. A 0.2% core price increase is expected, following respective August readings of 0.1% and 0.3%.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 14th October 2019.


Image

* No-deal Brexit risks are looking more real than ever, with reports suggesting that talks will officially break down this week ahead of the upcoming EU summit on 17 and 18 October. Elsewhere, further US data and Fedspeak could provide more clues about the possibility of a Fed rate cut.

Tuesday – 15 October 2019

* Consumer Price Index (CNY, GMT 01:30) – September’s Chinese CPI is seen unchanged at 0.7% while the PPI figure is expected to decline further to -1.2%. The overall reading for CPI is estimated to post a gain up to 2.9% y/y.

* ILO & Average Earnings Index 3m/y (GBP, GMT 08:30) – UK Earnings with the bonus-excluded figure are expected to slip to 3.7% y/y in the three months to August, down from 3.8%y/y. UK ILO unemployment is expected steady at 3.8%, which was the lowest rate seen since December 1974.

* ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for October is projected at -27 from the -22.5 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though expected to declne further to -33.0 slightly from -22.4. A lower than expected outcome, ties in with the stagnation in market sentiment at the start of the month.

* Consumer Price Index (NZD, GMT 21:45) – One of the most important figures for FX markets, the y/y CPI for Q3 is expected to come out at 1.4%, compared to 1.7% in the previous quarter.

Wednesday – 16 October 2019

* Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The UK CPI is expected to rebound to a 1.8% y/y rate in September after dipping to 1.7% in August from 2.1% in July. Weakness in sterling from year-go levels should impact some offset to disinflationary forces.

* Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI is expected to be confirmed at just 0.9% y/y in the final release for September, although the deceleration in the headline rate over the month was largely due to base effects from energy prices, with core inflation actually moving up to 1.0% y/y from 0.9% y/y in August.

* Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The Canadian CPI index is expected to have increased to 2%y/y compared to 1.9%y/y in August. The core CPI measures remained near 2.0%.

* Retail Sales (USD, GMT 12:30) – Retail Sales are an important determinant of consumer spending thus making it a leading indicator for overall economic growth. Consensus expectations suggest that we should have increased by 0.2% in September, for both the retail sales headline and the ex-auto figure, following a 0.4% August headline rise with a flat ex-auto figure.

* Fedspeak: Fed Brainard (USD, GMT 19:00)

Thursday – 17 October 2019

* European Council Summit on Brexit

* Employment Data (AUD, GMT 01:30) – While the Unemployment Rate is projected to have flipped at 5.3% in September, Employment change is expected to have eased, increasing by 10K compared to 34.7K last month.

* Retail Sales ex Fuel (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Retail Sales in the UK are anticipated to increase in September, reaching 3.0% on a y/y basis, and 0.5% on a m/m basis, from the 2.7% and -0.2% respectively

* Housing Data and Building Permits (USD, GMT 12:30) – Housing starts should drop back to a 1.282 mln pace in September, after a sharp rise to a 1.364 mln clip in August with the help of lower mortgage rates. Permits similarly are expected to slow to 1.370 mln in September, after popping to 1.425 mln in September. Permits have shown a solid growth path into Q3 despite a July starts set-back.

* Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Survey (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Philly Fed index is seen falling to 7.0 from 12.0 in September, versus a 1-year high of 21.8 in July and a 33-month low of -4.1 in February. The late-September producer sentiment surveys deteriorated significantly after firmness in the early-September reports, and the early-October data will be closely scrutinized to see if this pull-back continued. The “soft data” surveys are at risk of a possible impact from the UAW-GM strike, alongside the ongoing headwind from troubles abroad.

* Fedspeak: Fed Bowman and Fed Williams (USD, GMT 18:00 and 20:20)

Friday – 18 October 2019

* European Council Summit on Brexit

* China Gross Domestic Product (CNY, GMT 02:00)- Chinese GDP is projected to see additional moderation to a 6.1% y/y pace in Q3, from 6.2% in Q2.

* Industrial Production and Retail Sales (CNY, GMT 02:00) – The September industrial production is forecast at 4.5% y/y from 4.4% previously, while September retail sales likely improved to 7.7% y/y from 7.5%.

* Fedspeak: Fed Kaplan and Fed Clarida (USD, GMT 15:00 and 15:30)

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 21st October 2019.


Image

* The week ahead will definitely not be a quite one, with high anxiety on Brexit, the last ECB policy meeting before Mario draghi hand over the ECB presidency to Christine Lagarde and few significant US data prior FED on October 30.

Monday – 21 October 2019

* Producer Price Index (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The German PPI is expected to drop to -0.2% for September. As expected readings would result in a y/y loss of 0.3% for headline PPI, versus a 0.3% pace for August.

Tuesday – 22 October 2019

* Retail Sales (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canadian sales are expected to have increased by 0.6% m/m in August compared to 0.4% m/m in July, with the ex-autos component down -0.3%.

* Existing Home Sales (USD, GMT 14:00) – Home sales have regained their status as an important indicator after the financial crisis and can have a strong effect on the markets. The release is expected to record a slight -0.2% pull-back in September to a 5.480 mln pace, after a bounce to 5.490 mln in August. In Q2, we saw an average sales pace of 5.287 mln, and we expect a better 5.463 mln pace in Q3.

Thursday – 24 October 2019

* Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 08:30-09:00) – September PMIs showed a marked contraction in manufacturing activity and a sharp slowdown in services sector growth. This picture is likely to be seen again in the preliminary readings for October, as German Manufacturing PMI has been forecast at 40 and composite at 49.2, which it is still below neutral. Meanwhile, Services PMI is expected to fall to 51.2. The overall Markit for Eurozone is seen at 49.4, signalling stagnation and highlighting the risk that the weakness in manufacturing sectors is spreading.

* Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference (EUR, GMT 11:45 & 12:30) – The ECB is widely expected to keep policy settings on hold after Draghi’s parting shot at the last meeting. The outgoing president pushed through another deposit rate cut and an open ended asset purchase program against the opposition of some of the more senior national central bank heads and incoming president Lagarde will face the task of uniting the board and dealing with growing demands for a comprehensive revision of the ECB’s policy setting framework and in particular the inflation target. Draghi’s last press conference meanwhile will likely focus heavily on calls for fiscal measures to boost the economy in a challenging international environment.

* Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to fall -1.8% in September, after gains of 0.2% in August, thanks to an expected transportation orders drop. Boeing orders rose to a still-lean 25 from 18 in August.

* Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing are expected to slip in October, to 50.1 from 51.1, while Services PMIs are likely to rise to 51.3 from 50.9, indicating a slowdown in the sector that has been hit by global trade tensions.

Friday – 25 October 2019

* German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – In September, the German IFO business confidence came in slightly higher than expected at 94.6. In October, however, the overall business climate reading is seen slightly lower at 94.4. The more forward looking expectations reading is anticipated at 91.8 from 90.8.

FX Action | 22nd October 2019.


Image

Commodity currencies posted fresh highs while the Yen retained a softening bias amid a backdrop of rising global equity markets following upbeat rhetoric from both the US and Chinese officials.

Q3 corporate earnings have so far been positive, albeit with expectations having been guided lower in the run in to the show-and-tell season.

AUDUSD posted a two-month high at 0.6682,AUDJPY a 12-week high, while NZDUSD ascended into one-month high territory. NZDUSD continues to support an overall bullish outlook after the formation of inverse head and shoulders pattern. It is currently retests 8-week Resistance which is close to 38.2% Fib. level since July’s peak. A move above the latter could strengthen the outlook, with next level to be watched at 50% Fib. , at 0.6500. Support is seta t 0.6350-0.6350.

Image

USDCAD,meanwhile, has printed a 3-month low at 1.3071. The pair is down by about 1% form week-ago levels, and is showing just over a 4% decline on the year-to-date. This follows what is now a three consecutive weeks of underperformance. A recovery in global risk appetite (much reduced no-deal Brexit risk, cancellation of planned U.S. December tariff hikes on Chinese goods) has helped underpin the Canadian Dollar, and other commodity-correlating currencies.

Image

On the domestic scene, Canadian PM Trudeau’s Liberals are set to form a minority government after a tight election yesterday, though they will have to rely on the left-leaning NDP party to govern, which wants to raise corporate income tax rates and implement a wealth tax, and opposes the Trans Mountain oil pipeline project, which is seen as negatives from the perspective of financial markets.

Elsewhere, EURUSD, after coming under pressure yesterday in the wake of printing a 2-month high at 1.1179, settled in the mid 1.1100s. The Euro is showing net gains of around 1% against both the Dollar and Yen from week-ago levels, with markets having pretty much unwound the perceived risk for there being a no-deal Brexit scenario on October 31. Currently it reversed lower at 1.1144, while it remains choppy so far, bouncing between 1.1133-1.1160 area.

GBPUSD has settled in the mid 1.2900s after yesterday posting a 5-month high at 1.3012. The pair is up by nearly 9% from the major-trend lows seen in early September. Regarding Brexit, the UK’s Parliament will today start voting on the legislation for PM Johnson’s divorce deal. This needs to pass at the first go if Brexit is going to happen on October 31. Once the deal has been fully ratified it would still remain subject to the “meaningful vote.”

The opposition are scheming to either amend the deal so that there is an all-UK customs arrangement, which is unlikely to have sufficient support, and to made the Brexit deal subject to a “confirmatory” referendum, which looks unlikely to pass, though not an impossibility.

Date : 24th October 2019.

Sterling, Extension and Election Polls 24th October 2019.


Image

* Everyone concerned is presently waiting on the EU to grant the UK an extension in the Brexit deadline from October 31. The Irish PM along with some EU heavy weights have made public their backing for an extension, out to January 31, though this will have to be agreed by all of the EU27 member states.

* The widespread expectation is that they will, which is why Sterling is not crashing presently, as a refusal would risk a no-deal Brexit scenario at month end. UK PM Johnson met with opposition leader Corbyn earlier to discuss a timetable for ratifying the Brexit deal, with Parliament having voted to reject the government’s program bill to fast-track the legislative process. They failed to reach an agreement.

* Johnson has stated that the government can’t go on and that he will call for a general election in the event EU permits a 3-month extension. He needs 2/3 of MPs to support this, being an out-of-cycle election.

* As for Labour, some political pundits are surprised that the party isn’t pushing for a second referendum on EU membership rather than a general election given its poor standing in polling.

Overall, the most likely scenario from here is that the EU formally permits an extension and a UK general election is staged by early December.

* In the currency market, Cable has recouped above 1.2900 level since New York session yesterday. According to ING, bulls could hope that Cable is going to make a massive rally through to 1.40.

* “We see a Cable move to 1.40 being too much of a stretch this year – and if it were to happen it would probably involve us and the market massively under-estimating the size of the squeeze in short UK positions – those positions including equities, where fund managers have been underweight UK equities since 2014.”

Image

UK polling ahead of likely general election.

*Politico’s poll of polls shows PM Johnson’s Conservative Party to be out in front with 35% support.

*The Brexit Party, which favours nothing but a “clean” — aka “no deal” (given the Northern Ireland border problem) — Brexit, are running with 11% support. Should the two form a coalition, their combined support is 46%.The Labour Party has 25% support.

*The Liberal Democrats are in third spot with 18% support — a combined support with Labour, of 43% in a hypothetical coalition, less than the Tory-Brexit total.

As for other parties, the Green Party has 5% and Scotland’s SNP has 3%. It should be stressed that the Conservatives have been ruling out forming an alliance or coalition with the Brexit Party, fearing it would cost the votes of the not-so-hardline Brexit supporters, while the Liberal Democrats have also been saying that they couldn’t contemplate a coalition with Labour while Jeremy Corbyn is their leader, who is unpopular and widely blamed for the historical low-polling that his party has been seeing, and who would put off politically homeless pro-EU Tory voters from shifting their way.

With the election likely to boil down to a shootout between pro-Brexit and pro-EU sides, what the Tory and Brexit parties will be fearing most are voting pacts between Labour, Liberal Democrats, Greens, Plaid Cymru (of Wales) and the SNP, whereby they would tactically withdraw candidates from contesting seats on a seat-by-seat basis in a way that would prevent splitting the anti-Tory Party/anti-Brexit Party vote.

The Q3 Earnings Season – APPLE 30th October 2019.


Image

Apple Inc. (APPLE), wherein iPhone has been its flagship product for more than 10 years, is scheduled to report its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 after the US market closes on Wednesday, October 30, 2019. Apple is currently the world’s largest company with a market capital value $ 1.126 trillion. Apple is among the so-called FAANG stocks. FAANG is a group of internet and tech stocks: Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, and Google.

Fundamental

The company recently released its latest line of iconic iPhone11 (September) as well as MacBook products last July. The investors’ expectation is low for the quarter given the fall of the iPhone sales. The investors are interested to see the impact of the iPhone 11 sales to the quarter, even though it only counted 10 days before end of quarter (Iphone11 only hit the shelves only on September 20).

Majority of analyst forecast a flat revenue at ~$62 billion which is similar to $62.9 billion posted a year ago. The earning per share is expected at $2.84, down from $2.91 last year. The gross margin is expected at the range between 37.5% and 38.5% (similar to last year). AAPL’s overall fiscal 2019 revenue is projected to dip 2.7% to $258.43 billion, after FY18’s sales surged 16%, with FY17 up 6.3%.

Technical

Apple’s stock has been on the bull run, reaching new all-time record high closing prices $248.66 (28th October close). Apple stock has risen by 70% in 2019. Currently, the momentum is still on the upside as risk-on sentiment surges on the back of positive news of President Trump expecting to sign trade deal with China.

Currently, APPLE share is trading at $248.66. From a technical standpoint, the bull candlestick is dominant with no presence of bearish possibility, it currently trades at top channel of Bollinger band. The immediate support is at 20 1H MA (also a mid-Bollinger band) at $245.50, followed by resistance that became support area at $244. 50 1H MA is at $244 as the following support. The 2018 highest price is at $233.20.

Date : 4th November 2019.

Events to Look Out For Next Week 4th November 2019.


Image

* The week starts light again, with Eurozone Manufacturing PMI and the new ECB president Lagarde speech on Monday, followed by RBA rate statement and New Zealand’s jobs report on Tuesday. Bank of England dominates the week as the highly uncertain election campaign begun.

Monday – 04 November 2019

* Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 08:55) – The German October Manufacturing PMI held steady at 41.9, with Germany’s manufacturing sector still firmly in recession. This picture is likely to be seen confirmed in the final readings for October.

Tuesday – 05 November 2019

* RBA Interest Rate Decision (AUD, GMT 03:30) – The RBA minutes from the September policy meeting, showed that the central bank remains disposed to further easing. However in the October minutes, Governor Lowe suggested that the Bank is not in a hurry to lower rates asap.

* ISM Non – Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 15:00) – The ISM-NMI index is expected to rise to 54.0 in October from 52.6 in September and a prior 19-month low of 56.1 in March, versus a 13-year high of 60.8 in September of last year.

* Labour Market Data (NZD, GMT 21:45) – The Final reading for Q3 employment change is expected to show further negative labor reports. the unemployment rate is anticipated at 4.0% from 3.9%, while participation rate is seen rising at 70.9%.

Wednesday – 06 November 2019

* Retail Sales (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Retail sales moved up 0.3% m/m in August, a partial rebound from the -0.5% m/m decline in the previous month. However, in September the latest slowdown in labour market could keep overall consumption underpinned in the third quarter. The September Retail sales are seen at 0.1% m/m.

Thursday- 07 November 2019

* Event of the week – BoE Interest Rate Decision and MPC Vote (GBP, GMT 12:00) – The BoE at the last meeting already indicated that even if uncertainty persists it may need to act to prop up the economy and the upcoming November meeting will bring the BoE’s quarterly updates on growth and inflation. It will come amid a still muddy picture on the Brexit front and just ahead of a general election, so central bankers may be weary of being accused of interfering in the political process if they lean too much out of the window on the Brexit front.

Friday – 08 November 2019

* Labour Market Data (CAD, GMT 13:30) – Total employment grew 53.7k in September after the 81.1k surge in August, leaving two months of robust jobs growth that came in well above expectations. The unemployment rate fell to 5.5% in September from 5.7% in August. For October, the unemployment rate is expected to rise at 5.7% while participation rate should remain unchanged.

* Michigan Sentiment (USD, GMT 15:00) – The preliminary US consumer sentiment for November is forecast at 94.7, 0.8 points below the final in October.

FX Action | 05th November 2019.


Image

EUR: Limited rally?

Asset:EURUSD 1.1129
Weekly bias: Bearish
Week’s Range: 1.1097 – 1.1200

* A no-deal Brexit avoided theme has given both the Euro and Pound a lift lately, though the possibility for a no-deal further down the track remains on the cards, while the protracted political uncertainty in the UK is having a deleterious economic on both sides of the Channel. The ECB is also taking a dovish tilt with Christine Lagarde having taken up the reins. On the dollar side of the balance, with regard to EURUSD, markets are anticipating US non-manufacturing survey data for October, due later today, to rebound from the 3-year low seen in September. This would follow the strong US October jobs report (despite the General Motors strike) and the backdrop of the Fed’s three precautionary rate cuts.

* EURUSD printed a 6-day low at 1.1112 in what is now the pair’s fourth day trading on a 1.11 handle. The pair has been losing upside momentum after rallying out of sub-1.0900 levels in early October. The Euro has seen signs of weakness against other currencies, although EURJPY has been buoyed by Yen trade yesterday.Against a sputtering Eurozone economy and a dovish ECB, the upside potential of EURUSD should be kept in check. In the long-term pair still classified as being amid a down trend that’s been unfolding since early 2018, from levels around 1.2500. The trend has coincided with the 10-year Bund yield dropping from levels over 0.70% to the prevailing -0.325 % yield (a -0.739% low was seen in early September).

Image

JPY: Looking northwards despite risk-on mode
Asset: USDJPY 108.80
Weekly bias: Bullish
Week’s Range: 107.76 – 109.27

* The Yen continued on a softening tack into the EUropean session amid a backdrop of continued risk-on positioning in global markets, which have seen sovereign bonds come under pressure and stock markets rally. Maintaining investor spirits were the PBoC cutting its 1-year medium-term lending facility (MLF) rate by 5 bps for the first time since early 2016, and an FT report that the Trump administration was considering removing some tariffs on Chinese goods, which is something that Reuters sources have been saying Beijing has been pushing for.

* USDJPY rose to a 5-day high at 108.88. EURJPY and AUDJPY also made respective 5-day peaks, at 121.12 and 75.18, and other Yen crosses gained. AUDJPY lifted by over 0.5%, drawing back in on the 3-month high seen last week at 75.29. Positive sentiment for USDJPY holds in the medium picture, as the asset holds above 20- and 50-Day SMA, with momentum indicators positively configured. Hence the intraday decline remains a temporary correction on the 3-day rally.

Image

GBP: Struggling to hold above 1.2900
Asset: GBPUSD 1.2904
Weekly bias: Neutral
Week’s Range: 1.2800-1.2980

* A no-deal Brexit avoided theme has given Pound a lift lately, though the possibility for a no-deal further down the track remains on the cards, while the protracted political uncertainty in the UK is having a deleterious economic on both sides of the Channel.

* The Pound stuck at 1.2900 (mid 3-week range) after making up the fourth week out of the last five where a higher high has been set. From month-ago levels, the Pound is the strongest performer out of the main currencies, up 5% against the Dollar and by over 6% versus the Euro, reflecting an unwinding in the pound’s Brexit discount, with a Halloween no-deal Brexit scenario having been avoided.

Image

CAD: Remains heavy
Spot: USDCAD 1.3124
Weekly bias: Bearish
Week’s Range: 1.3075 – 1.3200

* USDCAD has remained heavy, today matching the 6-day low that was seen yesterday at 1.3130, with the Canadian dollar being floated by a backdrop of coursing risk appetite in global markets, similar to the other Dollar bloc currencies, which has offset the jump in US yields following the strong US jobs data on Friday.

* Taking a step back, USDCAD is near to the midpoint of the range that’s been seen over the last 4-plus years.

Image

AUD: Remains on bid
Asset: AUDUSD 0.6917
Weekly bias: Neutral to Bullish
Week’s Range: 0.6770- 0.6945

* AUDJPY is the biggest gainer on the day so far, showing a rise of 0.9% at prevailing levels. The cross has printed a three-week high at 75.40. AUDUSD has concurrently rallied by over 0.6%, coming within of the three-week peak that was seen last week, at 0.6929.

*The Aussie Dollar is also showing outperformance form month-ago levels, with only sterling having been stronger out of the main currencies over this period. The currency has a relatively high beta characteristic, and is widely seen as a liquid currency proxy of China, which accounts for over a third of the total demand for Australian commodity exports, and has therefore acted in a true to form manner amid the recent upward scaling in global stock markets. The main three US indices hit new record peaks yesterday, while Asian and European markets have rallied to fresh major-trend highs today.
