Market Update – Risk Apettite ahead of a massive week!

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

China set a modest target for economic growth this year of around 5% on Sunday, and is poised to implement the biggest government shake-up in a decade. Disappointing the markets! USD under pressure. Yields decline and Stocks extend rally today after Friday’s strong close. Stronger than expected data releases have revived tightening speculation and kept a lid on local stocks.

Rate–sensitive tech shares outperformed in Japan, just like in the US, after comments from Richardmond Fed President Thomas Barkin that inflation is “likely past peak,” which helped to rein in long-term Treasury yields from multi-month highs. A day earlier, Atlanta Fed chief Raphael Bostic hinted that a peak in rates may come in summer.

*USDUSD under pressure retested 104.34 low. EUR extends to 1.0640, for a 2nd day in a row. JPY dipped 135.30 but has inclined to 135.70 now. Sterling jumped to 1.2040 but failed to exit February’s range.
*USDStocks – The US markets rallied amid overtightening comments from FED officials. Movers – US500 +0.76% 4054, US100 +0.76% 12341, US30 +0.76% 33408, GER40 up 0.2%, UK100 futures are flat.

Image

*USDCommodities – USOil – holds gains above $78.80 from EIA small supply gain seen last week and as markets weigh prospects for China demand after latest economic data. Gold – had its best week since mid-January amid soft USD. Currently at $1858.20.
*USDCryptocurrencies – BTC – tanked on Friday to 21,858 amid Silvergate Failure (Silvergate Halts Crypto Payments After Suffering $1 Billion Loss). Currently recovering above $22k.

Today - Eurozone January retail sales, February S&P Global PMIs for Germany, France and Eurozone, Canadian Ivey PMI and US Factory Orders.

Image

Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) GBPCHF (-0.49%). Dipped to 1.2128 on EU open. MA’s aligned lower, MACD histogram turn negative & signal line is at 0, RSI 29 & falling, H1 ATR 0.00116, Daily ATR 0.00776.

Market Update – Buoyed investor sentiment ahead of Powell.

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD under pressure, Yields slightly higher buoyed by investor sentiment which also boosted Stocks after they sagged through US session. (Reuters) – China’s exports & imports dropping for January-February pointed to continued weakness in demand for the country’s products & foreign demand, backing government concerns that a global slowdown will be felt at home. RBA raised rates to 3.60% from 3.35% the highest in more than a decade but suggested it might be nearly done tightening as consumer spending was slowing and there was less risk of a wages-driven inflation blow-out. The bid fell out of the markets as trading turned more cautious post weak trade data which weighed on Chinese stocks and ahead of Fed Chair Powell’s Testimony.

*USDFutures traders are pricing in a 76% probability the Fed will raise rates by 25 basis points at its March 21 to 22 meeting and a 24% likelihood of a 50 bp increase.
*USDUSD holds at 10-day low area at 104.12 now. Euro retests 1.07, Sterling jumped to 1.2062 above 20-DMA. Aussie at a more than 2-month low of 0.6690.
*USDStocks – JPN225 +0.25% at 28,309 – US500 at 4058, US100 +1% at 12348, US30 +0.12% 33487.META will cut thousands of jobs as soon as this week in a fresh round of layoffs.

Image

*USDCommodities – USOil – jumped to $80.93. China’s crude oil imports fell 1.3% in the first two months of 2023 from a year earlier, data showed on Tuesday, but analysts pointed to accelerating imports in February as a sign that fuel demand was rebounding after Beijing scrapped COVID-19 controls. Gold – slightly higher at $1850.98.
*USDCryptocurrencies – BTC – steady at $22k.

Today - Fed Chair Powell’s Testimony first to the Senate Banking Committee, and then to the House Finance Committee tomorrow. He is expected to reiterate the Fed’s hawkish stance of higher for longer rates.

Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) GBPAUD (+0.50%). Rallied to 1.7982. MAs aligned higher, MACD histogram & signal line extend higher, RSI 75 & rising, H1 ATR 0.00271, Daily ATR 0.01426.

Market Update – Fed is prepared to “speed up”.

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD rallied to 105.85 during Powell’s hawkish speech and holds above 105.57 since then. Yields rose and stock markets remain under pressure. The Nikkei was a notable exception overnight, with a 0.5% gain. Curves are inverting further in Germany and the US as concern that overly aggressive central bank action will hurt the recovery returns. The curve inverted to -104 bps, the most since 1981, from -93 bps.

Image

A more hawkish than expected stance from Fed Chair Powell saw Treasury yields spike and Wall Street sink, while the dollar firmed. Although Powell did not really say anything new as he reiterated the “higher for longer” policy mantra, he did open the door for a return to a more aggressive 50 bp rate hike and the markets jumped through it. BlackRock sees ‘reasonable chance’ of Fed raising rates to 6%.

*USDUSD at 105.66 now. Euro drifted to 1.0544, Sterling broke 4-month support to 1.1861, below 20-WMA. Yen spiked to 137.54 on US Dollar strength.
*USDStocks – US500 tumbled 1.53% to close under the 4000 mark. The US100 slid -1.25%. The US30 dropped -1.72% with losses accelerating after the break below 33,000.

Image

*USDCommodities – USOil – massive sell off from $80.95 to $77.13 on fears that more aggressive US interest rate hikes would hit demand. API shows US crude stocks fall helped oil to find a floor, while USD rise keeps lid on oil. Gold – 1-week low (-1.9%) at 1814.22.
*USDCryptocurrencies – BTC – at $21936.

Today - Fed Chair Powell’s Testimony to the House Finance Committee. US ADP, & BoC rate decision.

Image

Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) XAUUSD (-1.9%). Plummeted to 1809. MAs flattened, MACD histogram & signal line remain well below 0, RSI 30 & flat, H1 ATR 2.32, Daily ATR 18.25.

Market Update – The DAMAGE has been done!

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

The damage from the Fed has been done and fears of an upshift to a faster pace of rate hikes this month, along with an even higher terminal rate and for a longer period of time, saw yields cheapen further. ADP and JOLTS showed a still hot labor market. USD steady at 105.60, Treasury yields nudged higher overnight, as did JGB rates ahead of the current BoJ meeting.The curve inverted further to -108 bps from -104.8 bps Tuesday, the most inverted since 1981. BOC left the policy rate unchanged at 4.50%, a tie for the highest rate since 2007 and indicated it would continue its quantitative tightening strategy.

Overnight: China’s Feb consumer inflation slowed (1.0% from 2.1%), Producer deflation deepened. In Japan Kazuo Ueda nomination as the next central bank governor was approved, signing off on a new leadership that will be tasked with steering a smooth exit from ultra-loose monetary policy.

*USD hovers near 3-month high at 105.66 now. Euro held 1.0520 floor, Sterling at 1.1850. Yen gained some ground against USD, pullback to 136.60. The Loonie lost some ground, but is recovering with USDCAD at 1.3820 (4-month high)
*Stocks – US100 rose by 0.40% to close to 12,252. The US500 +0.14%. The US30 dropped -0.18, slid to 32,740 today.

Image

*Commodities – USOil – extended losses to $76.19.

Market Update – Futures illiquid & sensitive to news!

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Another Bank failed over the weekend! Along with SVB, the Fed also closed Signature Bank. The Fed announced a new funding facility on Sunday, the Bank Term Funding Program (BTFP), to stave off a possible fire sale and subsequent liquidity crisis and a run on banks when the markets reopened today following the failure of the two banks.

US equity futures rose and the USD declined so far in today’s trading after regulators weighed in to shore up the banking system and said depositors of collapsed tech sector lender Silicon Valley Bank would be fully repaid.

The Fed also announced the Discount Window is open and will apply the same margins as the new BTFP facility. Fed, FDIC, and Treasury officials also said customers of SVB will have access to all their funds, even those in excess of the $250k FDIC limit, on Monday. These quick actions significantly reduce systemic risks across the financial system and should significantly calm fears. Also First Republic Gets Additional Funding From Fed, (JPMorgan).

*USDIndex drifted to 103.43 low as rate outlook now is very uncertain. Could the Fed protect small US banks & hold back on raising rates at the next meeting?
*Goldman Sachs economists said late Sunday they no longer expected the Fed to increase rates on March 22, its next meeting.
*VIX climbed to 27.05 before retracing to 22.37.
*Euro (+0.84%) jumped to 1.0733, Sterling up at 1.2113 retesting 50-DMA. Yen declines with USDJPY to 134.50 from 133.50. USDCAD down to 1.3320 from 1.3860 high.
*The yield on the 10-year US Treasury rose to 3.704%, while the yield on the 2-year note fell 0.15% to 4.435 per cent. Yields move inversely to price.
*Stocks – US100 up by +1.65%, US500 +1.53%, US30 dropped +1.09%.

*USOil – up to $77.18, rising 0.65%.
*Gold – rebounds to $1875 on a flight to safety.
*Cryptocurrencies – BTC – up by 9.1% rallied to $22.5K! (key neckline). Cryptocurrency prices rallied after US regulators said depositors of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank, a major bank for crypto companies, would get their money back.
