Date : 1st April 2023.

Events to Look Out For Next Week.

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

It’s a holiday shortened week ahead as most markets will be closed on Friday for the Easter holidays, however Inflation and Banks remain the focal point. The advent of a new month and new quarter could further improve risk appetite despite some ongoing jitters in regional banks, still tight jobless claims, and hawkish central bankers. Next week’s heavy dose of global data releases includes the RBA and RBNZ rate decision and the employment data from Canada, while US NFP is in the spotlight.

Monday – 03 April 2023

*Consumer Price Index and Core (CHF, GMT 06:30) – Swiss inflation for March is expected to ease at 0.4% from 1.9% previously.
*ISM Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM index is expected to slip to 47.5 in March, after a rise to 47.7 from a 3-year low of 47.4 in January.

Tuesday – 04 April 2023

*OPEC-JMMC meeting attended by representatives from the 13 OPEC members and 11 other oil-rich nations.
*Rate Statement & Interest Rate Decision (AUD, GMT 04:30) – The RBA is considering a pause on rate rises, according to the minutes to the March 7 meeting. They flagged that the board will consider keeping the cash rate on hold at 3.6% in April, if the economy shows signs of softening. “Members agreed to consider the case for a pause at the following meeting recognising that pausing would allow additional time to reassess the outlook for the economy”. “At what point it will be appropriate to pause will be determined by the data and the board’s assessment of the outlook”.

Wednesday – 05 April 2023

*Rate Statement & Interest Rate Decision (NZD, GMT 02:00) – As the high inflation continues the RBNZ is expected to continue hiking, with markets pricing in a nearly 100% chance of a 25 bps rate hike to 5%. New Zealand’s economy is expected to have shrunk 0.3% in Q1 following a 0.6% growth last quarter, indicating a mild recession.
*ADP Non-Farm Employment Change (USD, GMT 12:15) – ADP is expected to climb to 200K in March after the 242K seen in February.
*ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI should ease to 54.8 from 55.1, versus a 3-year low of 49.2 in December. We’re seeing a 16-month producer sentiment pull-back from robust peaks in November of 2021, with many of the various component categories now in contraction territory. Producers are facing big headwinds from elevated interest rates, recession fears, and now a banking crisis, but have benefited from the need to rebuild inventories following a prolonged period of supply chain disruptions.

Thursday – 06 April 2023

*Labour Market Data (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada’s employment change is anticipated to contract by -4.2k in March from 21.8K growth last month. Unemployment and participation rate are seen unchanged.

Friday – 07 April 2023

*Good Friday – The stock and bond markets will both be closed.
*Event of the Week – Non-Farm Payrolls (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 220K March nonfarm payroll increase is anticipated, after gains of 311k in February. A continued tight path for claims in March implies some upside payroll risk. The jobless rate should hold steady at 3.6% from February, up from the 54-year low of 3.4% (3.43%) in January. Hours-worked are assumed to rise 0.2% after a -0.1% February drop, while the workweek holds steady at 34.5. Average hourly earnings are assumed to rise 0.3% after a 0.2% gain in January, while the y/y wage gain should fall to 4.3% from 4.6%. In the last expansion, we saw a 3.5% peak for y/y wage gains in both February and July of 2019, before the pandemic-boost to an 8.0% peak in April of 2020. The ensuing strength in wage gains has allowed continued robust y/y increases, though the return of low-paid workers to the workforce is likely restraining wage increases.

Market Update – April 4 – RBA watered down its tightening bias!

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD drifted, returning end of quarter gains on more signs of slowing in manufacturing activity, which had boosted Treasuries yields but after the data reversed the selloff. Implied Fed funds futures dipping too as the market reduced slightly the risk for a May rate hike. US Stock markets closed higher except US100. European futures are slightly higher. Oil held gains above $80 led by OPEC+ and Saudi’s pledge of its own of 500k reduction (“Saudi First”), which was the main driver across assets.

Overnight: RBA – held rates unchanged VS expectations – The bank has not ruled out a resumption of rate rises in the future. Fed’s Bullard (nonvoter) expects funds rate over 5% to achieve inflation target. ECB hawk Holzmann suggested that another 50 bp hike in May is not out of the question.

*FX – USDIndex sagged to a low of 101.98 on the growth outlook and less hawkish Fed view, but the index finished the day at 102.03. EUR lifted to 1.0916. JPY underperformed as traders weighed in the impact of higher oil prices on Japan’s manufacturing sector. Currently back up to 132.80 amid wider weakness in the Yen. Sterling boosted to 1.2400, amid USD weakness and as UK March manufacturing PMI revised down.

Image
Image

*Stocks – The US30 rallied 0.98%, led by the jump in energy. The US500 was 0.37% in the green, while the US100 slipped -0.27%. Nikkei and ASX managing slight gains, but China bourses trading narrowly mixed. The Hang Seng underperformed after the US100 closed in the red, with the tech sector not benefiting hugely from the more cautious tone of central banks.
*Commodities – USOil – Saudi’s pledge of its own of 500k reduction was the main driver across assets. USOIL ended with a 6.28% pop to $80.42, up over $80 for the first time since March 6 (just before SVB went under), and the contract is up 10% since last Wednesday.
*Gold – at 5-day support, $1976.
*Cryptocurrencies – BTC holds $27.4k.

Today - European PPI, Canadian Building permits, US Jolts and Factory Orders.

Image

Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) USDRUB (+5.02%). Rallied to 78.50 this morning. MAs aligned higher, MACD histogram & signal line positive & rising but RSI flat and Stochastic posted a bearish cross. H1 ATR 0.4139, Daily ATR 0.9496.

Date : 5th April 2023.

Market Update – April 5 – Stock markets struggle.

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD remains under pressure, post the weaker than expected JOLTS and factory orders reports which set the stage for another strong rally in Treasuries as they heightened beliefs the FOMC is nearing the end of its tightening cycle. Yields plunged on the data headlines. RBNZ surprised, raised to 5.25% from 4.75% – the country’s economy is headed for recession, defined as two consecutive quarters of negative growth. US Stock markets sold off slightly into the afternoon with declines of about -0.5% as the weaker data dominated. BoE’s Hunt hinted for a rate rise in May. Pound at its highest level in 10 months, with slightly stronger than expected economic growth and an uptick in inflation in February raising the chances of higher interest rates. German manufacturing orders much stronger than expected.

*FX – USDIndex ranging 101.11-101.29. EUR steady above 1.0950. JPY lifted extending 3-day gains, currently at 131.50 from 133.75 high against USD. Sterling boosted to 1.2522 reaching June 2022 highs.

Image

*Stocks – Asian stock markets struggled, and European stock futures are also mostly in the red, after another disappointing data round in the US undermined confidence in the recovery and left Wall Street with another loss. Japanese markets underperformed and the Nikkei lost -1.7%. Walmart shares -1% afterhours as it sticks with cautious sales outlook for first quarter. Ford’s quarterly sales jump 10% as supply improves.
*Commodities – USOil is sideways between $80- $82 as concerns of further tightening support oil prices for now.
*Gold – rallied to $2026.
*Cryptocurrencies – BTC extending above $28.5k.

Today - Service PMI’s from EZ, UK & US ISM Services & Trade Balance and ADP Private Payrolls.

Image

Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) NZDUSD (+0.52%). Spiked to 0.6378. MAs flattened, MACD line below histogram, RSI turn below 80 and Stochastic at 55 indicating the end of the rally.

Market Update – April 6 – Eyes on Jobs.

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD wobbled initially and stumbled to 101.4 on the data, but recovered to close at 101.75. Another data miss, a further drop in bonds. Treasuries rallied further after weaker ISM services and ADP numbers added to expectations for a slowing economy that will keep the FOMC hawks grounded, if not in May, then in June. The combination of risk aversion, reduced expectations for Fed tightening, short covering, and technicals all helped propel the move. Wall Street was mixed all session & Asian equities declined following the US lower as investors switched their focus to the prospect of a recession. German industrial production surged 2.0% m/m in February, adding to signs that activity has strengthened, and that Germany will escape a technical recession! UK house prices rose unexpectedly in March.

Overnight – China & HK reopened but the regions stocks also remained heavy ahead of Easter Weekend. – Chinese Services PMI grew strongly, the AUD trade balance was better than expected but weighed on AUD & NZD.

*FX – USDIndex ranging 101.11-101.29. EUR and GBP are weaker but steady above 1.0900 and 1.2450 respectively. JPY also lost some ground against USD rebounding to 131.50.

Image

*Stocks – US100 dropped -1.07%, while the US500 fell -0.25%, with the US30 rising 0.24%. Western Alliance Bancorp shares have fallen further today, dropping some -17% following an update on its Q1 financials yesterday on a lack of details. Losses are being pared slightly after just releasing further information on its deposits, noting total deposits declined to $47.6 bln in Q1 from $53.6 bln to end Q4. It is slated to announce its earnings on April 18 after the close.
*Commodities – USOil is sideways between $79-$80.
*Gold – prices have slipped to $2012 from $2032, but the contract is holding above $2000 after breaking that barrier yesterday (closing basis) for the first time since March 2022.
*Cryptocurrencies – BTC flat at $28k.

Image

Today - US Jobless Claims, Canadian Employment data & Speech from the Fed’s key Hawk – Bullard.

US Payrolls on Friday were a near bullseye, with a 236k rise in March after -17k in revisions, though there was a skewing of weakness toward the goods sector. We saw the expected 0.3% hourly earnings rise that left a 4.2% y/y gain. The jobless rate fell to 3.50% from 3.57%, leaving the rate still above the 54-year low of 3.43% in January, with hefty gains of 577k for civilian employment and 480k for the labour force, while the labour force participation rate rose to a new a 3-year high of 62.6% from a prior high of 62.5%. However, there was a further drop in the workweek to 34.4 in March that fueled a -0.1% drop in the hours-worked index after small downward revisions. Overall, it raises expectations of a 25 bp hike from the Fed on May 3rd.

Overnight: Japan – March consumer confidence index 33.9 vs 31.1 prior.

*FX – USDIndex slipped under 101.50 on Friday and remains below 102.00 today at 101.85. EUR remains at 1.0900 today, having spiked down to 1.0875 on the NFP data. JPY breached 132.00 on Friday and holds 132.60 ahead of Gov. Ueda. Sterling’s decline from the key 1.2500 tests 1.2400 today.
*Stocks – US markets, closed mixed led by tech stocks on Thursday (+0.76% to -0.03%) #US500 closed at 4105 – US500 FUTS touched 4145 on Friday but are lower today at 4127. Q1 Earnings Season kicks off with the big Wall Street Banks this week.

*Commodities – USOil – Futures hold the key $80.00 and even breached $81.00 briefly earlier following the OPEC production cut last weekend. Gold – broke below the vital $2000, testing into support at $1987, before recovering to $1995.
*Cryptocurrencies – BTC slipped to $27.7k, recovered the key $28k and tests $28.4k today.
