Market Update – July 11 – Stocks pressured, USD gains.

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

The NFP report was slightly disappointing overall (372k June payroll gain & -74k in downward revisions). USD & Yields spiked, with USDIndex 107.59. Fed funds futures are dropping as the jobs report gives no reason for the FOMC to slow its policy trajectory, keeping a 75 bp hike at the July 26-27 FOMC intact and 50 bp move at the September 20-21 meeting. Stocks remain under pressure. Asian stocks struggled further overnight, with China bourses once again hit by lockdown concerns. Chinese CPI hotter at 2.5% vs 2.1%, but PPI cooler 6.15 vs 6.4%. COT report shows long positions on USD were reduced.

China discovered its first case of a highly transmissible Omicron subvariant in Shanghai and that new cases jumped to 63 in the country’s largest city from 52 a day earlier.

* USDIndex is heading for a new 20 year high – eased a bit at 107.23.
* Yields: The 2-year rate is up over 3.119%, 3-year at 3.165% & 10-year higher at 3.095%.
* Stocks : USA30 was down -0.15%, while the USA500 was off -0.08%. The USA100 rose 0.12%. In Europe, the picture is not much better and GER40 and UK100 futures are down -1.4% and -1.0%. Twitter fell 5% (with more to come) after MUSK withdrew the $44bln offer. The market mood will be tested by earnings from JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley on Thursday, with Citigroup and Wells Fargo the day after.
* Oil prices fell slightly today reversing some gains amid lockdown fear in China, i.e. concerns about tight supply. USOIL at $102.96 – New mass COVID testing in China potentially hitting demand.
* Gold steady for a 3rd day at $1,732-$1,750.
* FX Markets: USDJPY at 137.26 – 24-year high. Japan’s ruling conservative coalition’s strong election showing indicated no change to lose monetary policies.

Today - Fed’s Williams speech.

Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) EURUSD (–0.62%) down to 1.0105. MAs aligning lower, MACD histogram negative & declining, RSI 31, H1 ATR 0.0014, Daily ATR 0.01032.

Market Update – July 12 -USD spiked, Oil fell & Euro closer to parity.

USD spiked, Oil fell and the Euro inched closer to parity. The strong haven bid rise as the prospect of further tightening by central banks, renewed COVID outbreaks in China and Europe’s energy shortages spooked investors. The Fed’s George, the dissenter in favor of a 50 bp June hike, noted concerns over aggressive policy action & the hawk Bullard still favors a 75 bp move. Recession angst again cropped up and hammered equities with weakness in megacap tech knocking the USA100 down -2.26%. USDIndex above 108.00. Wall Street’s losses have deepened. China imposing strict covid restrictions amid a rise in the subvariant BA.5 Omicron. Earnings season starts on Thursday with JPMorgan kicking it off. It could be a tough season for profits given rising costs. Bloomberg cites IBES data from Refinitive showing Q2 y/y earnings growth of 5.7% which would be the slowest since Q4 2020 and down from 6.8% from April 1.

Twitter Inc TWTR.N sent a letter to Elon Musk saying his effort to abandon his $44 billion takeover is “invalid and wrongful” and that Twitter has not breached any of its obligations, according to a regulatory filing.

* USDIndex broken through the 108.00 level, currently at 108.32 – highest since October 2002.
* Yields: 10-year sector was the outperformer yesterday, back below the 3.00% level again to 2.97%.
Stocks: USA100 tumbled -2.26%. The USA500 is off -1.15%, and the USA30 has slid -0.52%.
* USOIL down to $102.00 support.
* Gold steady for a 3rd day at $1,730.
* FX Markets: EURUSD dip to within 4 pips of parity at 1.0004, USDJPY spiked to 137.47. The AUDUSD slumped and was one of the worst performers versus the USD amid growing recession angst that has overshadowed the two consecutive 50 bp hikes from the RBA.
* Today – PepsiCo earnings, German ZEW, & BoE’s Governor Bailey speech

Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) GBPJPY (-0.25%) Fallen from a test of 164.50 on Monday, to 162.40 now, traded below 162.00 on Thursday. MA’s aligned lower, MACD histogram & signal line lower and below 0 Line, RSI 33.00 and falling. H1 ATR 0.287, Daily ATR 1.895.

Market Update – July 14 – Focus on PPI & Earnings.

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

It was all about June CPI and the report did not disappoint. Risk was for a hot report and the Administration warned of rising pressures. The most dramatic movers were the hot CPI report and the BoC’s 100 bp hike. Those opened the door for an outsized Fed move and in turn heightened risk for a recession. A bearish curve inversion play as the data nail the coffin for a 75 bp hike on July 27, with nontrivial risk of more aggressive action, either with a 100 bp increase which the BoC just effected, or with consecutive 75 bp moves in July and September. USD sustained gains, Oil settled at 200 DMA and Stocks traded mixed. Stocks were up 0.6% and 0.4% in Japan and Australia respectively, the latter helped by a record low unemployment report (50-year low) while Chinese imports continue to linger as the country’s Covid policy keeps a lid on activity. The AUD rallied on the numbers, as traders boosted speculations for a 75 bp rate hike from the RBA in August.

* USDIndex held above 108.00 level, but failed to break 3-day resistance.
* Yields: the 10-year ended over 7 bps lower at 2.89%, reflecting credibility in the FOMC’s policy stance. Fed funds futures priced in a 54% chance for a 100 bp rate hike on July 27 with rising odds for 170 bps in hikes from here.
* Stocks: USA100 tumbled -0.15%. The USA500 is off -0.45%, and the USA30 has slid -0.67%.
* USOIL traded at $95 holding above 200-day SMA.
* Gold found a bid but gains were trimmed. Currently down to $1,706.
FX Markets: EURUSD holds fractionally above parity at 1.0002, USDJPY skyrocketed to 139.28, Cable fell to * 1.1856. AUD and to a lesser extent the NZD gained.
* Today – US calendar has jobless claims and PPI, but the earning releases are in the spotlight with JPMorgan Chase & Co., Morgan Stanley, First Republic Bank, Cintas etc.

Image

Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) NZDJPY (+1.62%) breached 85.20. MAs aligned higher, MACD histogram & signal line extend further northwards, RSI above 701 but falling. H1 ATR 0.193, Daily ATR 0.975.

Market Update – July 15.

Image
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD steady at 108.50, Oil holds above 200 DMA, Stocks and bonds weaker on poor earnings news and bearish spillover from Europe on recession fears and political turmoil, and dove on the initial PPI print which kept the door open for a hefty 100 bp rate hike from the FOMC at the upcoming July 26-27 meeting. China bourses were under pressure after weaker than expected data that included a 0.4% y/y rise in GDP, which clearly missed expectations for a 1.0% y/y rise.

Equity Market: JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley missed earning forecasts. Net income at both lenders fell nearly 30% in the second quarter as work on IPOs and SPACs dried up. It was the first earnings miss from either JPMorgan — the largest US lender by assets and an industry bellwether — or Morgan Stanley since the start of 2020. Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. dragged Chinese tech shares lower as concerns about a crackdown on the sector resurfaced after company executives were reported to be facing an inquiry linked to the theft of a vast police database.

* USDIndex garnered strong early support and rose to 29on diverging central bank stances and political uncertainties before drifting to 108.55.
* Yields: the 10-year was 2.8 bps higher at 2.961%, versus a 3.02% intraday peak.
* Stocks: In China, fresh worries of regulatory pressure are adding to a decline in tech stocks. The ASX also struggled and corrected -0.7%, but the Nikkei found a footing and lifted 0.5%, with the GER40 gaining nearly 1%, the UK1004%, and a 0.2% rise in the USA100.
* USOIL traded at $95.50 holding above 200-day SMA.
* Gold near 5th consecutive weekly loss. Currently down to $1,704.73.
* FX Markets: EURUSD slumped below parity to 9952before it bounced to 1.0023, USDJPY is still at a very high level at 138.70, Cable at 1.1820.
* Today –US Retail Sales. Earnings: UnitedHealth Group, Wells Fargo, BlackRock, Citigroup etc.

Date : 20th July 2022.

Market Update – July 20 – Stocks rallied; USD down.

Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USDIndex down to 106.52. US Stocks continued to rally overnight, after European and US markets posted broad gains yesterday (NASDAQ +3.11%) amid strong earnings and the expected resumption of Russian gas supply to Europe helping lift risk-on sentiment and ease fears of a recession. UK CPI inflation lifted to 9.4% y/y in June from 9.1% y/y in the previous month. Core inflation eased slightly, but at 5.8% y/y still remains far, far above target. German PPI inflation eased slightly.

Earnings: Netflix shares jumped after earnings beat; it lost fewer subscribers than expected and says cheaper ad tier is coming in early 2023. Boeing rose on deal to sell jets to 777 Partners, Johnson & Johnson and IBM fell on dollar impact warning, Halliburton, Hasbro & Truist rose after profit beat. Johnson & Johnson beat analysts’ estimates on strength in its pharmaceuticals unit, even as the company cut its full-year adjusted profit forecast due to a stronger Dollar. Twitter Inc. and Elon Musk will go to trial in October over whether the billionaire must complete his $44 billion acquisition of the social media company, a Delaware judge ruled on Tuesday. Amazon.com filed a lawsuit against the leaders of more than 10,000 Facebook groups it accused of publishing fake reviews on the e-commerce site, the company announced on Tuesday.

* USDIndex is mired at two-week lows to 106.52. It has fallen 2 handles in two days from a 20+ year high of 108.54 last Thursday.
* Equities – USA500 climbed 2.76%, USA100 surged 3.11% followed by a 2.43% jump in the USA30. JPN225 gained 2.7%, the ASX 1.7% and Hang Seng and CSI lifted 1.6% and 0.2% respectively.
* Yields 10-year Treasury yield is up 0.2 bp at 3.02%.

* FX Markets – EURUSD has climbed to 1.0233 ahead of Thursday’s ECB meeting. USDJPY has corrected to 137.52. Cable at 1.2008.

Today – Canadian CPI. Earnings – Tesla, ASML Holding, Abbott Laboratories etc. For Europe the day of reckoning will come tomorrow when the ECB meeting coincides with the day the Nordstream 1 pipeline is supposed to re-open after scheduled maintenance work. If Russia doesn’t re-open and the ECB announcement disappoints Eurozone stocks and the EUR are likely to sell off in tandem with Eurozone peripherals.
