USD spiked (USDIndex 105.10), Stocks plummeted once again (NASDAQ -4.68%, Dow -800pts & S&P close to -151pts). Friday’s hot CPI report; low consumer sentiment; stagflation worries continued; and global uncertainty over how hard the FOMC will have to slam on the brakes to slow demand and bring down inflation.

* Oil & Gold had weaker sessions – USOil struggles to break $122.00 handle, Gold is slumped on the Fed outlook and the strength in the USD, to $1809.
* Bitcoin TANKED to $20,796. – Major cryptocurrency lending company Celsius Network’s freezing of withdrawals delivered the latest jolt to investors in the asset-class.
* FX markets – EURUSD down at 1.0458, USDJPY tested 135 zone, Cable trades up at 1.2200, from 1.2120.

The national CPI rate stood at 7.9% and inflation is at the highest level since 1973, during the first oil price crisis. Chaoyang kicked off a three-day mass testing campaign among its roughly 3.5 million residents.

Today German ZEW, US PPI and ECB’s Schnabel speech.

Market Update – June 15.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD down (USDIndex 104.70), Stocks mixed (NASDAQ +0.18%, Dow -0.5% & S&P -0.38%). A boost to Australia’s minimum wage and RBA pledge to do what is necessary to meet the inflation target fueled the jump in yields. Expectations are now for  50 bp hikes in July as well as September and Australia’s curve shifted more than 20 bp higher today. – Yields extended higher as dip buyers have thrown in the towel for now, leaving sellers in control as the market adjusts to the potential for a very hawkish FOMC. (US 5yr & 7yr rates up to 3.606% and 3.59%, 2yr at 3.43%). US PPI increased 0.8% in May and the core rose 0.5% – bearish for the markets. ECB to hold emergency meeting “to discuss current market conditions”. A Bloomberg source story yesterday suggested that the ECB remains tight lipped on new plan to keep spreads in.

Quote
“Against a backdrop of sky-high inflation, rising rates, and growing recession concerns, the S&P 500 has had its worst start to the year since 1962,” noted analysts at Goldman Sachs.

* USDIndex pulled back to 104.78.
* Yields have extended higher, at the highest rates in well over a decade. The 10-year cheapened over 12 bp to 3.488%, not seen since the spring of 2011.
* Equities – Nikkei and ASX lost a further 0.9% and 1.3% respectively. Hang Seng and CSI 300 are currently up 1.6% and 2.7%.
* Oil drifted to 116.55 before settling at 119.58 – amid FED and reports that US Senate Finance Committee chair Ron Wyden plans to introduce legislation setting a 21% surtax on oil company profits considered excessive.
* Golds near its lowest area in a month, now at $1,820.
* Bitcoin steady above $20K.
* BOJ offers to buy unlimited sum of JGBs with 7 years left until maturity.
* FX markets – EURUSD rebounded to 1.0498 from 1.0396, USDJPY back below 135 zone, Cable settled at 1.2040.

Today The focus will be on the ECB meeting but also on the dot plot and the terminal rate, as well as how Chair Powell assesses the outlooks of inflation, growth, and the labor market.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) USDIndex (-0.35%) down to 50-hour SMA, 104.72. Intraday, MAs aligned lower, MACD histogram neutral, RSI 41 & sloping. H1 ATR at 0.14 & Daily ATR at 0.79.

Market Update – June 16 – Its all about the Banks.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

FOMC hiked rates 75 bps, 10-1 vote; further increases likely appropriate. USD supported (USDIndex 104.80), Stocks higher despite Fed (NASDAQ +2.5%, Dow 1.4% & S&P +2%). Despite the Fed effecting the biggest increase in interest rates in 28 years, bonds and stocks rallied hard, underpinned by the fact Chair Powell said the 75 bps was an unusual move and would not be a common action, noting further hikes would be 50 bps or 75 bps. After hitting multi-month lows earlier this week, most regional currencies firmed on Thursday after US Bond Yields and the USD retreated from multi-year highs a day earlier as investors welcomed the Fed’s decision. It is clear that the Fed’s move will keep stagflation concerns alive. Asian markets traded mixed and US futures have pared earlier gains.

“Against a backdrop of sky-high inflation, rising rates, and growing recession concerns, the S&P 500 has had its worst start to the year since 1962,” noted analysts at Goldman Sachs.

* USDIndex held above 104.40.
* Yields 10-year Treasury yield climbed 1.5 bp to 3.3% while Australia’s bonds also moved up.
* Equities – GER40 and UK100 futures are mixed with the UK100 down -0.2% ahead of the BoE decision, the GER40 up 0.3%.
* Oil settled to 115.76 after a steep drop, supported by tight oil supply (100k b/d highest since April 2020) and peak summer consumption, after the Fed sparked fears of slower economic growth and less fuel demand.
* Golds at $1830 – safe-haven demand & inflationary hedge buying VS a higher interest rate.
* Bitcoin down to $20,157.
* FX markets – EURUSD at 1.0409, USDJPY back above 134, Cable down at 1.2100 ahead of BoE.

BoE Preview: The BoE is still set to deliver another 25 bps rate hike this week, but stagflation risks are looking nowhere as serious as in the UK That should prevent the central bank from joining the “50 bp club” of central banks, but for now is unlikely to stop the BoE from sticking to the tightening path. The statement may sound somewhat more cautious now. Even the BoE’s own scenario suggests a technical recession next year and the latest batch of forecasts from the OECD and others highlight that the economy is under-performing, with the fallout from Brexit, the sanctions against Russia, and political turmoil all weighing on the growth outlook. PM Johnson managed to survive a confidence vote last week, but many feel that his days are numbered. Even within his own party the threat to unilaterally step back from the Northern Ireland protocol is not very popular and rather than uniting the nation behind Brexit, the government is facing an increasingly fragmented union. Nevertheless, with inflation running far above target, the BoE has little choice but to lift rates further for now, especially as house price inflation is also still running at double digits, and wage growth is picking up in tight markets.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) GBPUSD (-0.84%) down to 1.20 area again. Intraday, MAs bearishly crossed, MACD histogram declines but holds above 0, RSI 40 & sloping. H1 ATR at 0.00377 & Daily ATR at 0.01434.

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

Market Update – June 17 – Deeply underwater.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD drifted (USDIndex 103.15) thanks to the hawkish SNB and BoE, and the potential for a shift from the BoJ. However, the BoJ eventually left policy on hold & maintained its ultra-low rate settings today, despite looking increasingly like the odd one out. Yen sinks. Stocks were crushed, hit by the surge in yields (NASDAQ -4.4%, Dow -2.4% & S&P -3.25%). Weakness in tech also weighed on USA100. VIX rose to an intraday high of 34.43, but dipped to 33.44 late in the day, versus Wednesday’s 29.62.  Treasuries are rallying and yields are now richer (2-year declined to 3.10%, 10-year at 3.25%. They were as high as 3.39% and 3.49% on the day). European leaders back Ukraine’s bid to apply for EU membership.

*US mortgage rate surged 55 bps to 5.78%, the biggest weekly jump since 1987.
*US housing starts plunged -14.4% to 1.549 mln in May, permits fell to 1.695 mln.
*US Philly Fed index dropped to -3.3 in June, 6-month outlook fell to -6.8.
*US initial jobless claims slid -3k to 229k in June 11 week.

* USDIndex rebounded to 104.25 from 103.15.
* Yields 10-year climbed 5.5 bp to 3.25%.
* Equities – Nikkei and ASX lost -1.8% today. Elon Musk hints at layoffs in first meeting with Twitter employees.
* Oil settled at 117.50 – Oil set for weekly loss as traders weigh monetary tightening, although persisting supply tightness and new sanctions on Iran limited the downside.
* Gold retested $1856, currently lower at $1845. Platinum and palladium also set for weekly drops.
* Bitcoin steadily lower at $20k area.
Interest rate differentials between Japan and the US will continue to widen, which will keep pressure on the Yen, which at the start of the week was at the lowest level since 1998.
* FX markets – EURUSD at 1.0505, USDJPY back above 134.67, Cable at 1.2257 from 1.2405 highs.

Today: BoE Pill & Tenreyro speeches, EU HICP & Fed Chair Powell speech.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) CHFJPY (+1.54%) breaks 2013 peak. Intraday, MAs aligned higher, MACD lines extending northwards, RSI 76 & rising. ATR(H1) 0.0524 & ATR(D) at 1.506.

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.

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


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.



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.


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.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) CHFJPY (+0.56%) breached 141.66. MAs aligned higher, MACD histogram & signal line extend further northwards, RSI above 70 but falling. H1 ATR 0.212, Daily ATR 1.404.

German PPI inflation eased slightly.

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.
