Market Update – January 13 – CPI as advertised, USD sank!


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

The December CPI report came in as advertised, indeed even better than expected for the headline. Treasuries saw strong gains, while there were more moderate gains on Wall Street. Overall inflation continues to come down & Fed Harker & Bullard comments boosted expectations the FOMC will further downshift rate hikes with a 25 bp increase seen in February. Yields dropped measurably. Futures markets have priced in 25 bp and several rate cuts this year.

*The USDIndex slumped to 101.79 yesterday. Today eased at 102.00.
*EUR – held above 1.0800.
*JPY – rallies to 7-month high as JGB yields also remain on bid on the anticipation of a potential policy shift. Nikkei down by 1.3%. USDJPY down by 2.7% last night.
*Reuters: A newspaper report flagging the possibility of more flexibility has redoubled bets on a coming shift out of ultra-easy policy that seeks to pin yields near zero.
*GBP – settled at 1.2200. UK GDP rose 0.1% in November. Figures showed that in the three months to the end of November, the economy shrank by 0.3%. If two consecutive quarters of contraction are confirmed then that could count as a recession.



*Stocks – Wall Street rallied too, with the US30 and US100 up 0.64%, and the US500 0.34% firmer. Strength in energy supported.
*USOil – held above $78.
*Gold – retests $1900.
*BTC surged 5% to break above $19,000.

Today – University of Michigan sentiment. Earnings: Bank of America, Citigroup, JPMorgan, Wells Fargo, BlackRock and Delta Air Lines.



Biggest FX Mover@ (07:30 GMT) NZDJPY (-0.93%). Plummets to 81.95, from 84.36 high yesterday. Fast MAs aligned lower & RSI at 17, MACD histogram & signal lines extended lower. H1 ATR 0.203, Daily ATR 1.157.

Market Update – January 12 – Inflation Day.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Stock market sentiment remains supported ahead of the US inflation report, with markets starting to look past the current wave of tightening moves and buying into hopes that final rates will be reached sooner rather than later this year. Yields have come down and stocks are benefiting. Australia and New Zealand bonds bounced today with yields stabilizing after being pushed up by stronger than expected local inflation data yesterday.

*The USDIndex is tumbling, between 102.60-103.20 for a 3rd consecutive day.
*EUR – rallied to 7-month low to 1.0777.
*JPY – got a boost today on speculation about a BOJ stimulus tweak heading into next week’s policy meeting. Currently traded at 131.80  amid wider strength in the Yen.
*GBP – reversed from 1.2170.
*Stocks – US indices are up since yesterday amid bets that a mitigation in the pace of US consumer price gains will allow the Federal Reserve to dial back the pace of its rate hikes. The US100 spiked to 11489, breaking  50 DMA, US30 to 34134 and US500 to 3994. GER40 and UK100 futures are posting gains of 0.2% and 0.3% respectively.




*USOil – it’s been a rollercoaster for oil, having climbed over $77 on optimism on China’s reopening. It then fell to below $76 on the huge build in inventories,  but then managed to extend gains above $78. That is the third large weekly increase on record (dating back to 1982), and a big miss from analyst expectations for a small decline.
*Gold – steady below $1885.

Today – US Inflation release.



Biggest FX Mover@ (07:30 GMT) ETHUSD (+4.62%). Spiked to 1417.35, breaking W-pattern neckline at 1353. Fast MAs & RSI flattened but MACD histogram & signal lines remain positive. H1 ATR 13.75, Daily ATR 37.86.

Market Update – January 11 – Dollar stands still ahead of Thursday’s CPI.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Treasuries were more unidirectional while Yields have crept higher led by the long end. The curve has bear steepened to -65.6 bps from -68 bps Monday and -74 bps before Friday’s data. Wall Street was very choppy, trading either side of unchanged, after a positive opening. Chair Powell did not comment on policy matters in his Riksbank remarks. But Governor Bowman echoed hawkish comments from others of late. Gains had been shed as the market is pushed and pulled by crosscurrents of Fed policy dynamics, recession uncertainties, and upcoming earnings reports. Stock markets moved higher in Japan and Australia, the latter helped by stronger than expected retail sales numbers, which helped to balance the uptick in inflation that sparked fresh rate hike bets.





*The USDIndex bounced to 103.35 from a low of 103.03, adding to some of the volatility in stocks.
*EUR – ranging between 1.0700 – 1.0760.
*JPY – neutral, hovering around 132.30
*GBP – holds Friday’s gains. Range at 1.2110 – 1.2210.
*Stocks – The US100, US30 and US500 are fractionally higher with +1.01%, +0.56% and +0.7% respectively. US100 remains stuck in the 10800-11400 range. Note the fact we are getting tighter and tighter inside the triangle like formation. The 100-day SMA and the negative trend line are the big resistance levels to watch, while 10800 is the “must hold” level.



*USOil – fell by -0.48% to $74.66 per barrel and down from the $80.26 to end 2022.
*Gold – up at $1884.60.

Today – Crude Oil Inventories & New Zealand Building Permits.

Market Update – January 10 – Wall Street in a dangerous game ahead of Powell, CPI, earnings.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Treasuries remained firm, yields finished off of their lows. Wall Street turned mixed in the afternoon after the US30 and US500 shed their advances. Hawkish Fedspeak from Bostic and Daly generated some cold feet and subsequent profit taking ahead of Fed Chair Powell’s comments later. The advent of $90 bln in coupon supply also weighed a bit.

The FOMC minutes warned that an “unwarranted easing in financial conditions” would complicate the Fed’s efforts to bring down inflation, and the big rally in bonds and stocks in recent sessions is not what the FOMC wants to see. Already there has been some push back from Daly and Bostic regarding boosting rates over 5%. Will Powell feel compelled to oppose market rallies?

*The USDIndex remained weak on the softer outlook on the FOMC, falling to a low of 102.94, though it closed at 103.19.
*EUR – steady above 1.0700.
*JPY – hovering around 132.10.
*GBP – closed above 20-day SMA, retesting 1.2200.
*Stocks – The US100 was up 0.63% at the close as tech found support from China’s reopening plays. The US30 dropped -0.34% and the US500 was off -0.08%. Wall Street is in the green with gains of about 1.5% to 2.4% for the year-to-date. The US500 is over 9.4% above its October low.





*USOil – 2.8% higher at $75.85 per barrel and Brent up 2.4% at $80.46. Optimism over China’s economic re-opening has been supportive, boosting demand expectations. China announced more financial support to households and governments in a bid to revive the economy.
*Gold – slightly lower at $1871 from $1881.

Today – Speeches: BoJ’s Kuroda, ECB’s Schnabel, BoC Governor Macklem and Fed’s Chair Powell.



Biggest FX Mover@ (07:30 GMT) EURAUD (+0.24%). Spiked by 41 pips at the EU open. MAs slightly higher, MACD histogram & signal line remain positive and rising. RSI 68 but flattened, H1 ATR 0.0028, Daily ATR 0.01406.

Market Update – January 9 – USD Index falls 9% from peaks.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Treasury and Wall Street soared on the heels of the NFP data where the net effect is a tempering in Fed rate hike expectations. The markets are cheering the cooling in wage growth and a softer but still resilient labor market. The erosion in the service sector is a bit ominous but adds to the belief that the FOMC will soften its stance with a 25-50 bp hike on February 1 following the 50 bp tightening in December.

The jump in the workforce and easing wage growth & further signs of an economy slowing down with services contracting for the first time in more than 2-1/2 years in December = US economy recession, & Fed on its hiking path but no need to do too much!

*The USD Index falls 9% from peaks. It drifted to 103.23 from 105.40 on Friday after the NFP. Fed funds futures are suggesting a 4.958% terminal rate in June.
*China’s re-opening of its borders – could add further pressure on USD.
*EUR – spiked to nearly 1.0700.
*JPY – slightly higher today at 132.16 from 131.20 bottom.
*GBP – gaining 0.42% to 1.2166, after spiking 1.5% on Friday.
*Stocks – The US markets surged. US500 +2.28% and USA100 +2.56%. APPL +3.68%, AMZN +3.56%, MSFT +1.18%. 
*Treasury yields dove, led by the short end as the market priced out the more hawkish Fed bets. The 2-year rate plunged 20 bps to a low of 4.243%.



*USOil – rose after Chinese announcement. Today trades at $75.30.
*Gold – reversed 60% from 2022 downleg. Breached $1880.
*BTC – rise to 17166.23.


Today – Fed’s Bostic and BOE’s Pill speak, Japan’s PM Kishida meets with France’s President Macron, Eurozone unemployment. Earnings season kicks off this week with the major US banks.



Biggest FX Mover@ (07:30 GMT) AUDUSD (+0.78%). Trade-and-China sensitive AUD up to 0.6945 today.  MAs flattened but MACD histogram & signal line remain positive and rising. RSI 67 but turns slightly lower, H1 ATR 0.00166, Daily ATR 0.0096.

Market Update – January 6.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

It was another “good news is bad news” trade with better-than-expected labor market reports boosting fears over a higher for longer stance from the FOMC. Hawkish Fedspeak added to the selloffs in stocks and bonds but supported the Dollar. Wall Street closed over -1.0% in the red and just off the day’s lows. Treasury yields spiked, led by the front end as the curve inverted further to -74.2 bps versus -67.2 bps Wednesday and the most since December 15. Tweaks in Fed policy outlooks remain a major driver for the markets, as heading into the key nonfarm payroll report today.

*The USD Index jumped above 105.00 and holds.
*EUR – back to 1.0500 bottom. German manufacturing orders plunged -5.3% m/m in November. German retail sales rose 1.1% m/m in November, less than hoped in light of the Black Friday sales, which are a relatively new phenomenon in Germany.
*JPY – has lifted to 134.20.
*GBP – under pressure to 1.1890.
*Stocks – The US100 dropped by -1.42%, with the US500 -1.16% and the US30 off -1.02%. Nearly all the S&P 500 sectors were in the red with the exception of energy. AAPL -1.06%, MSFT -2.96% & AMZN -2.37%.



*USOil – stuck at $73.80. Virus developments remained in focus and there is still speculation that China will add further support measures as the economy tries to cope with the impact of rising Covid-19 case numbers.
*Gold – extended lower at $1832, after Putin ordered a holiday ceasefire in Ukraine from January 6-7. Bullion has fallen from an overnight peak of $1859.04.



Today – Markets are now waiting for US payroll numbers and Eurozone inflation data, which are hoped to give further indications on the monetary policy path on both sides of the Atlantic.

Trading Leveraged Products is risky

The FOMC minutes continued to show inflation was the overriding concern. Participants generally noted that upside risks to the inflation outlook “remained a key factor” for policy. It was repeated that a restrictive stance would have to be maintained for a sustained period until inflation was “clearly” on a path toward 2%. US Data yesterday showed ISM Manufacturing PMI’s missing at 48.4, but Jobs Openings remaining very strong beating expectations at 10.46m. Kashkari called for 5.4% terminal rate.

Market Update – January 2 – Markets drift on weak Chinese data & IMF Outlook.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

With markets in Europe and North America closed today and only a few Asian markets open  there was little direction on very limited volume. Weak PMI and Housing data from China on Saturday and a poor global outlook from the IMF yesterday start the New Year in the same down-beat way 2022 concluded. The Yen is the biggest gainer today.

China’s official Services PMI cratered -5.1 points to 41.6 in December after falling -2.0 ticks to 48.7 in November. This is a sixth consecutive monthly decline, a third straight month in contraction, and the lowest level since February 2020. It was at 52.7 a year ago. The December manufacturing index slid -1 point to 47.0 after falling -1.2 points to 48.0 previously. It too is a third month below the 50 expansion-contraction mark, and is the eighth month in 2022 below 50. It is also the weakest since February 2020s 35.7.

2023 is going to be a tough year as the main engines of global growth – the United States, Europe and China – all experience weakening activity. –  IMF “tougher than the year we leave behind…China’s chaotic reopening is proving problematic”.

*The USD Index down at 103.00 levels, but in 2022 the USD was King once again.
*EUR – rotates back to 1.0700 levels today but tested 1.1500 highs and 0.9530 lows in 2022.
*JPY – the strongest today and trades at 131.00 and 10-day lows, 2022 saw a breach of 150.00 form 113.00 lows. 
*GBP – Sterling traded over 1.4200 and under 1.0400 in a volatile (3 x Prime Minister, 5 x Finance Minister) 2022 for the UK. Today Cable holds over the key 1.2000 level at 1.2060.
*Stocks – Wall Street collapsed during 2022 into Bear market territory once more (NASDAQ -33.10%) and the US500 lost over 900 points (-19.44%) its worst year since 2008. The MSCI Global equity index lost 18.7%.



*USOil – Trades over $80.00, to start 2023. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine caused a spike to over $123.00 in February before falling to test $70.00 in December on weak global demand expectations. 
*Gold – Trades at $1830 levels today. Rising Inflation and interest rates in 2022 had a rather muted impact on the precious metal. The war-inspired February spike to $2070 was followed during the rest of the year to October lows under $1620, before recovering $1800 in December.   
*BTC – Sentiment woes continue. The biggest coin trades at $16,700 today after a tumultuous year which saw prices collapse from the $50,000 to the $15,000 level as the FTX saga broke.

Today – No Economic data due.

Biggest FX Mover@ (07:30 GMT) NZDJPY (-0.40%) muted moves in low volume FX markets. Continues to decline from last week’s rejection of 85.00, trades at 82.85 now, resistance at 83.00 and support at 82.50.  MAs aligned lower, MACD histogram & signal line negative and falling. RSI 38.33 & falling, H1 ATR 0.173, Daily ATR 0.935.

Market Update – December 21.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*The USD Index stuck at 103.50 bottom. Stocks pick up overnight, after were pummeled Tuesday by the BoJ’s surprise hawkish tweak in its yield curve control. Yields: JGB 2-year rose above zero for the first time since 2015. 10-year Treasury yield cheapened 11 bps to hit 3.706%. The curve inversion unwound another 10 bps on the day to -57.9 bps and compares to the -84 bps two weeks ago.
*EUR -jumps 20 pips at the EU open higher to 1.0630. German GfK consumer confidence improved to -37.8, a tad better than anticipated. All in all a number that ties in with expectations for a shallow and short lived recession, rather than a protracted slowdown.
*JPY – trimmed -4% to 130.55. – Higher yields at home could make it more attractive for Japanese investors to repatriate some funds.




*Stocks – Nikkei lost a further -0.7% after the BoJ’s curve ball yesterday. The ASX bounced 1.3%, and China bourses are also higher – as are stock futures across Europe and the US. The NASDAQ flat at 33,230, with the S&P 500 at 3,868, & the Dow up by 0.25%. #TSLA collapse continues -8% yesterday.
*USOil – flat at $75, with  Brent trading at $80.01 per barrel.
*Gold – higher held at $1,815.

Today – Canadian Inflation & US Consumer Confidence. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy is expected to travel to Washington to meet President Joe Biden.



Biggest FX Mover@ (07:30 GMT) NZDUSD (-0.67%). Turned below 20-DMA. Intraday MAs flattened, MACD histogram & signal line negative and falling. RSI 40 & rising indicating a possible recovery or steadiness, H1 ATR 0.00151, Daily ATR 0.0084.
