Market Update – May 2 -RBA down! FED & ECB to go!

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

May kicked off with another bank failure, the fourth in two months, as First Republic Bank (FRC) was seized by the FDIC, after which the assets were purchased by JPMorgan Chase. FRC became the second largest bank in US history to go under, ignominiously taking over that mantle from SVB. Morgan Stanley plans to cut 3,000 jobs due to a dealmaking slowdown by the end of June. RBA hiked its cash rate by 25 bps to 3.850%, surprising many forecasters expecting a third straight pause.
Treasury yields closed sharply higher on inflation data and a pick up in Fed fears, a hefty corporate calendar, and upward revisions to Q2 borrowing estimates. US manufacturing sector enters longest contractionary streak since 2009. Stock markets remain choppy in search of direction.

*FX – USDIndex kicked 102.03 in the morning but currently turned lower. USDJPY keep extending gains for the 4th day to 137.70, amid market uncertainty.
*Stocks – The US30 lost -0.14%, while the US500 and US100 were -0.04% and -0.11% lower, respectively. The Nikkei and Hang Seng managed slight gains. #Amazon -3.22%, #Tesla -1.35%, #JPM +2.14%, #Meta +1.19%.

Image

*Commodities – USOil fell to $74.35 as weak economic data from China and expectations of a US interest rate increase weigh on the market.
*Gold – at $1983 after tumbling to $1979 from $2007 yesterday.
*Cryptocurrencies – BTC down to $2774.

Today - EU HICP and US Factory orders.

Image

Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) AUDUSD (+1.09%) spiked by more than 85 pips the past 2 hours. MAs keep rising, MACD histogram & signal line rising, Stochastics at 95 and points higher, all indicating further nearterm positive bias.

Market Update – May 3 – Eyes on Fed.

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Japan and China bourses were closed for holidays and elsewhere markets were still rattled by the drop in Wall Street and fresh jitters at US regional banks. Asian stocks declined while US futures steadied on Wednesday as markets wait for the Fed announcement. Lingering concern over the health of the financial system should add to the arguments of the cautious camps at central banks, but policy sensitive short term bonds are underperforming this morning. Treasuries are holding a strong haven bid on worries over the regional banking sector. The sentiment is mixed by recent data suggesting an economic slowdown, including the lowest number of job openings in almost two years.

FOMC Preview: FOMC began its 2-day meeting and will announce its policy decision Wednesday at 18:00 GMT. A 25 bp increase is well anticipated. With no new SEP forecasts to guide the outlook, the focus will be on the policy statement and Chair Powell’s press conference. We do not expect any explicit forward guidance as the Fed will want to maintain optionality and leave all doors open. However, we do look for him to continue to push back against rate cut expectations. Implied Fed funds futures have slid lower, along with the drop in Treasury yields, amid heightened concerns over regional banks, and after weaker than expected data.

*FX – USDIndex has corrected to 101.30 while the Yen is picking up haven bids. The EURUSD is also back above the 1.103 mark ahead of the Fed announcement today and the ECB meeting tomorrow.
*Stocks – Hang Seng and ASX lost -1.7% and -0.96% respectively, although European and US Futures are higher. The US500 lost -1.16% while the US30 and US100 declined –1.08%. Jitters increased even after JPMorgan’s purchase of beleaguered First Republic Bank provided some stability Monday. But that did not hold as PacWest and Western Alliance were in the spotlight, dropping -42% and -27%, respectively, on investor angst. That saw the KBW bank index drop -4.4%. Nearly every sector in S&P was in the red.

Image

*Commodities – USOil plunged by -5% to $71.50 as markets priced in expectations for interest rate hikes in the US and Europe and waited for clarity on future policy path.
*Gold – Spiked to $2018.

Today - US ADP, ISM Services and Fed announcement.

Image

Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) USOIL (-5%) drifted to 71.29 from 76 area. MAs flattened but MACD histogram & signal line are way below 0, Stochastics is slipping. ATR(H1) at 0.20 & ATR(D) at 2.26.

Events to Look Out for Next Week.

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Welcome to our weekly agenda, our briefing of all the key financial events globally. Even if some of the Central Banks chaos are out of the way for now, jitters over regional banks continued to spread with PacWest, First Horizon, hit hard Western Alliance. Inflation concerns and central bankers speeches are expected to dominate next week. Focal points will be the BOE rate decision and US Inflation.


Monday – 08 May 2023
BOJ Minutes (USD, GMT 23:50)[b] – The BOJ minutes should provide guidance on the pace for further accomodative policy.

[b]Tuesday – 09 May 2023

Trade Balance (CNY, GMT 03:00) – Chinese Trade Balance for April is expected to grow by 74.30 bln from 88.19 bln.

Wednesday – 10 May 2023

Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – The US inflation figures are forecasted to grow by 0.4% for the headline and 0.3% for the core in April, after respective March gains of 0.1% and 0.4%. CPI gasoline prices look poised to climb 2% in April. We expect dissipating upward pressure on core prices through 2023 as disruptions from global supply chain bottlenecks and the war in Ukraine subside. As-expected March CPI figures would result in a steady y/y headline rise from 5.0%in March, versus a 40-year high of 9.1% in June. We expect the core y/y gain to slow to 5.4% from 5.6% in March, versus a 40-year high of 6.6% in September.

Thursday – 11 May 2023

Consumer Price Inflation (CNY, GMT 01:30) Chinese inflation as measured by CPI is expected to rise y/y from 0.7% to 1.0%. Producer Price Index y/y is likely to decrease to -2.5%.
Event of the Week – Interest Rate Decision & Statement & Press Conference (GBP, GMT 11:00) – Markets speculate that the BoE will be forced to continue hiking rates for longer than ECB and Fed. Markets are speculating that the Fed may be forced to start to cut rates in the second half of the year, while the ECB is expected to deliver two more rate hikes, which means peak rates are coming into sight. The BoE is also set to hike again next week and given that inflation remains in double digits, it will likely keep the door open to additional tightening steps, with markets seeing further hikes down the line.
Producer Price Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – The April PPI could gain of 0.3% for the headline and 0.2% for the core, after respective figures of -0.5% and -0.1% in March. As expected readings would result in the y/y headline PPI metric easing to 2.5% from 3.2%, versus an all-time high of 11.7% in March of 2022. We expect the y/y core measure to fall to 3.2% from 3.4%, versus an all-time high 9.7% in March of 2022. The y/y calculation should fall sharply through mid-2023 as comparisons become much easier.

Friday – 12 May 2023

Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 06:00) – GDP for Q1 is expected at -0.% y/y and headline at 0.5% q/q.

Always trade with strict risk management. Your capital is the single most important aspect of your trading business.
