FX News Today

Asian Market Wrap: Treasury and JGB yields are little changed at 2.86% and 0.10% respectively, as stocks drifted during the Asian session after yesterday’s holiday in the US. Trade concerns and emerging market jitters remain in focus, with the difficult Canada and US talks, and Trump’s latest round of China tariffs high on the agenda. The latter could be announced as early as Thursday. Argentina and Turkey meanwhile are still struggling to regain investor confidence. Turkey’s central bank yesterday vowed to take action, as inflation hit 18%, sparking hopes that the long awaited rate hike will finally come. Argentina, meanwhile, launched fresh measures to stem the crisis. RBA left rates unchanged as expected, but estimated that the economy grew above trend in the first six months of the year and suggested inflation will pick up from 2019.

FX Update: The Dollar has traded generally firmer. EURUSD has dipped back under 1.1600, while the Cable has fallen to a one-week low of 1.2843, extending the Pound-driven losses of yesterday after the EU’s Brexit negotiator Barnier all-but rejected the British government’s proposed plan for a new trading deal. The Sterling has also posted fresh lows against the Euro and other currencies. USDJPY has lifted to a three-session high of 111.37, flipping back above the midway mark of the recent range, while AUDJPY, which was a big loser yesterday, has bounced back amid a 1%-plus rally in Chinese equity markets. The Australian Dollar, which has been correlating strongly with Chinese stocks, outperformed the US Dollar, posting a two-session high at 0.7235. Overall, market conditions have been calm today, though there a feeling that a storm is bearing down. Concerns remain about vulnerable foreign-currency indebted emerging market countries, while President Trump looks set to make a big ratchet up in the Sino-US trade war with the imposition of tariff hikes on a further $200 bln of Chinese imports, which, unless he has a sudden change of heart, could happen as soon as Thursday. Canada-US talks on trade will resume tomorrow.

FX News Today

Asian Market Wrap: Stock markets remained under pressure during the Asian session, with trade woes and as the EM crisis saw market pressure shifting from currencies to stocks. IMF reported progress in talks with Argentina but contagion fears continue to weigh on sentiment also in developed markets. Treasury yields still backed up from overnight lows and are up 0.3 bp on the day at 2.909%, while 10-year JGB yields fell back -0.5 bp to 0.104%. Australia’s 10-year yields jumped more than 4 bp after higher than expected GDP numbers. US stock futures are moving down Oil prices are also slightly lower and the WTI future is trading at USD 69.38 per barrel.

FX Update: The Dollar majors are near net unchanged on the day so far, into the arrival of the London interbank market, while emerging market currencies have enjoyed some reprieve. EURUSD has been holding near to 1.1600 after recouping from the 2-week low that was seen yesterday at 1.1530, with reports of good selling interest above 1.1600 helping cap the pairing. The Yen underwent a bout of weakness before firming back. USDJPY lifted to a 111.71 high earlier in Tokyo, before ebbing back under 111.50. In news out of Japan today, BoJ is reportedly happy with its recent tweaks to its yield curve control policy, which allows for greater flexibility, according to sources cited by Bloomberg. AUDJPY, a cross which came under heavy pressure last week, correlating with Chinese stock markets, lifted to a three-session high today, aided by strong Q2 GDP data out of Australia (which showed the best annual growth rate, at 3.4% y/y, since Q3 2012). The cross, like USDJPY, has fallen back from the highs as the Yen picked up some support amid a backdrop of fragile stock market sentiment in Asia and globally. The threat of a marked escalation in the Sino-US trade war continues to hang over markets, while most expect more unravelling in the nascent emerging market currency crisis.

FX News Today

Asian Market Wrap: Treasury yields are little changed at 2.902%, JGB yields are down -0.4 bp at 0.100%. BoJ boosted buying five 10-year bonds in a bid to offset a cut in frequency of operations this month, which ties in with the bank’s intention not to make major changes after the last policy tweak and dampen speculation that it wants to taper at a faster pace. BoJ Board member Kataoka criticized the forward guidance and suggested the bank should have specified inflation rates, the output gap or inflation expectations. At the same time, he took fault with the added flexibility on the 10-year yield as it made the zero percent target unclear. Stock markets meanwhile remained under pressure amid ongoing emerging market concerns. A stronger Yen and a powerful earthquake added pressure on Japanese markets, as did a tumble in US tech stocks. Some markets, including Indonesia and Malaysia, managed modest gains, but most markets are firmly in negative territory. US Futures are also down, as are oil prices, with the WTI future trading at USD 68.59 per barrel.

FX Action:USDJPY and especially Yen crosses are softer, amid a risk-off themed session in pre-Europe trading in Asia and concerns about emerging market fragility and the next round of US tariffs on Chinese imports. Tech sector underperformance and reports of a powerful earthquake in Japan have also been in the mix. USDJPY dipped to a low of 111.17, down from a peak at 111.75, and subsequently settling above 111.30. The biggest mover, once again, has been the AUDJPY cross, which lost nearly 0.5% in making a 79.81 low and returning focus on the 22-month low that was seen on Monday at 79.52. BoJ ultra-dove Kataoka criticized the recent policy tweak by the central bank, to allow greater flexibility in its yield curve control, arguing that it made the zero percent target unclear while calling for additional monetary stimulus. His remarks had little impact on the Yen.

FX News Today

Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are up 0.2 bp at 2.875%, slightly down from overnight heights, 10-year JGB yields are down -0.2 bp at 0.098%. Asian stocks headed further south on route for the worst week since March. Tech stock earnings, trade jitters and emerging market risks remain in focus and continue to weigh on confidence although at least emerging market stocks seemed somewhat steadier albeit in a bearish market. Topix and Nikkei dropped -0.59% and -0.93% respectively, the Hang Seng lost -0.78% and the CSI 300 is down -0.105, after shedding early gains. US futures are heading south and oil prices are little changed with the front end Nymex future trading at USD 67.83 per barrel.

FX Action: USDJPY and AUDJPY have dropped further today, the former clipping a 16-day low at 110.38 and the latter falling by over 0.5% on route to posting fresh 22-month lows. The story remains the same, with the Yen being underpinned by safe haven demand and the Aussie Dollar underperforming due to Australia’s exposure to China, which looks set to find the US hiking tariff rates on another $200 bln worth of its exports. There are also reports that Trump is thinking of opening up a new front in his trade war with Japan. The general view seems to be that the US will proceed with ratcheting-up the trade war, with the Trump administration firmly in the belief that it is winning. Emerging market stress and tech sector weakness are also in the mix, while today’s US jobs report, on a brighter note, is expected to be strong.

Main Macro Events This Week

Tariff concerns continued to rattle equity markets, especially after President Trump surprised with an announcement he was readying an additional $267 bln in levies on Chinese goods. Many key stock indexes had their worst week in months and are likely to remain unsettled. Stocks and bonds around the world will remain sensitive to trade tensions, along with ongoing Brexit uncertainties. Also, economic data will be closely monitored for signs of growth and price impacts. Central bank meetings include the ECB, BoE, and Turkey. No surprises are expected from ECB and BoE. There will be a lot of interest in Turkey’s decision and whether it will hike rates.

United States: US markets posted some hefty losses last week. As for this week’s data, CPI and retail sales are the highlight. The stronger than expected 0.4% increase in average hourly earnings in the August jobs report, and the concomitant acceleration in the pace of growth to 2.9% y/y, a new cycle high and the fastest since May 2009, will put the focus on August CPI. Looking ahead, y/y gains are expected in headline inflation moderating and stabilising at lower levels over coming months while gains in core prices should remain around 2.4% over the remainder of the year. That should keep the Fed on a gradual trajectory. August retail sales are forecast rising 0.4%, with a 0.6% gain in ex-auto sales. Other data this week includes the preliminary September Michigan sentiment reading, which should move up to 97.0, from a 7-month low of 96.2 in August. The August drop reflected a decline in the current conditions index and the expectations component, and in September both components are likely to get improved. In spite of the August drop, the measure continues to oscillate just below the 14-year high of 101.4 in March. August trade prices will be of interest. Tariffs will likely depress trade prices going forward despite upward domestic price pressure, as producers absorb some of the tax impact. Meanwhile, headline and core PPI measures are seen rising 0.2%.

Fedspeak will be of interest. Several voting Committee members will take to the podium. And while all will support the likelihood for a tightening later this month, their outlooks on the economy down the road will be scrutinized.

Canada: The ongoing NAFTA talks this week, will be in focus. Stronger than expected reports could add to some angst over BoC, after Senior Deputy Governor Wilkins said in her economic update last Thursday that the Governing Council discussed whether the “gradual approach” remains appropriate. As for the data, August housing starts (Tuesday) are expected to improve to 220.0k from 206.3k in July. Capacity utilization (Wednesday) is seen climbing to 87.0% in Q2 from 86.1% in Q1, as real GDP surged 2.9% in Q2 (q/q, saar) after running at a tame 1.4% in Q1. The national balance sheet and financial flow accounts report for Q2 (Friday) will provide the Q2 household debt ratio. The July new home price index (Thursday) is seen rising 0.1% (m/m, sa) after the 0.1% rise in June, joining other evidence that Canada’s housing market has stabilized after contracting early this year. The Teranet HPI for August is due Wednesday.

Europe: The main focus this week is Thursday’s ECB meeting. Official rates are likely to be left untouched and Draghi is expected to confirm the guidance on rates, which foresees no change through the summer of next year. That leaves the focus on QE and the future of net asset purchases. The data calendar is highlighted by German ZEW investor confidence (Tuesday), were a slight improvement to -12.5 is expected with the September number, versus -13.7 in August. This would still mean that pessimists continue to outnumber optimists, and confirm the prevailing view that downside risks are becoming more visible even if current growth trends remain robust. The rest of the week’s calendar features mainly final readings for August inflation numbers, which are not expected to bring major surprises. The Spanish HICP (Wednesday) should be confirmed at 2.2% y/y, German and French readings (Thursday) at 2.0% and 2.6% respectively and the Italian number (Friday) at 1.7% y/y. The Italian number is still held back by positive base effects from changes to education charges last year, but these will fall out of the equation soon.

The Eurozone also has July trade (Friday) and production (Wednesday) data, and after the mixed German and French numbers, we are looking for a small change of 0.1% m/m in industrial production and a narrowing in the trade surplus. The latter remains very high compared to periods ahead of the financial crisis, and leaves the EU and Germany, in particular, vulnerable to charges of imbalances and an undue focus on exports.

UK: Attention will remain on Brexit negotiations, along with the September BoE MPC meeting (to be announced Thursday) and a slew of data releases that are highlighted by the second estimate Q2 GDP, July production and trade figures (all due Monday), and the latest labor market report covering July and August (Tuesday). The BoE’s policy meeting should prove to be a non-event for markets with no changes expected to settings or guidance at this juncture. The “Old Lady” should reaffirm its commitment to a gradual tightening course, attaching the usual caveats about the risks stemming from enduring Brexit uncertainty and escalating global trade protectionism.

As for the data, Q2 GDP is expected to come in unrevised at 0.3% q/q and 1.3% y/y, and both July industrial and manufacturing production to expand by 0.4% m/m, which would match the respective growth rates of the month prior. The labor report is anticipated to show a slight tick higher in the unemployment rate, to 4.1% from the multi-decade low rate of 4.0%, with average earnings unchanged at 2.4% y/y and 2.7% y/y in the respective with-bonus and ex-bonus figures in the three months to July.

Japan: The July tertiary industry index (Tuesday) is seen posting a 0.2% rebound after falling 0.5% in June. The Q3 BSI large all industry index (Wednesday) is predicted rising 1.0 after tumbling 5.3 points to -2.0 in Q2. July machine orders (Thursday) are forecast to rise 5.0% m/m versus the prior 8.8% decline. August PPI (Thursday) likely edged up to a 3.2% y/y pace from 3.1%. Revised July industrial production is due Friday.

China:The August trade report was released Saturday and showed a new record surplus of $31.1 bln with the US as exports slowed to a 9.8% y/y clip from 12.2%, and imports slipping to 20.0% from 27.3%. That might not sit well with President Trump and could be the catalyst for the $267 bln in increased levies he’s debating. This week, August industrial production (Friday) should remain steady at a 6.0% y/y clip, while August fixed investment (Friday) is penciled in at an unchanged 5.5% y/y pace. August retail sales (Friday) are estimated at an 8.7% y/y rate from 8.8%.

Australia: A thin docket is highlighted by August employment (Thursday) which is expected to rise 10.0k after the 3.9k decline in July. The unemployment rate is projected to hold steady at 5.3% in August.

FX News Today

Asian Market Wrap: Treasury yields have corrected some of yesterday’s gains that saw the 2-year hitting a decade high with investors increasingly pricing in 2 more rate hikes by year end. A fresh bout of risk aversion amid escalating trade tensions added support to core bond markets and 10-year Treasury yields are down -0.7 bp at 2.968%, while 10-year JGB yields declined -1.0 bp to 0.095%. Stocks meanwhile are heading for their 10th day of losses in Asia, as China told WTO that it wants to impose USD 7 bln a year in sanctions on the US in retaliation for the US non-compliance with a ruling on US dumping duties. Trump, on the other end, stressed again that the US will be taking a tough stance on China. The MSCIs index of emerging market shares meanwhile has fallen to the lowest levels since May 2017, indicating that EM risks also continue to linger, with tomorrow’s central bank decision in Turkey in view. Across Asia, stocks are mostly lower, with Topix and Nikkei losing -0.55% and -0.39%, Hang Seng and CSI 300 down -0.45% and -0.62% respectively. The ASX lost -0.12% and US Futures are also lower, after a positive close on Wall Street yesterday, as Apple led technology stocks and a surge in Oil prices underpinned energy producers. Oil prices are slightly below overnight highs over USD 70 per barrel, as hurricane Florence threatened east coast gasoline markets and in the midst of sanctions on Iranian oil exports.

FX Update: Both the Dollar and the Yen have firmed up against most other currencies amid a backdrop of risk aversion in Asia, with the Japanese currency marginally outperforming the US currency, seeing USDJPY nudge lower, after initially posting a 1-week high in early Asia Pacific dealings at 111.65, with the pair then ebbing to the 111.45-50 area. The price was matched by EURJPY, AUDJPY and most other Yen crosses, reflecting a modest pick-up in safe demand for the Japanese currency. Moreover, stock markets in Asia headed south amid ratcheting verbal threats between the US and China on trade and sanctions (US threatening sanctions over treatment of Uighur people, Beijing threatening sanctions on US over trade dumping duties). This situation has offset a signal from Canada that it is ready to make concessions to the US that may lead to a breakthrough in the NAFTA renegotiation (which helped lift the USA500 to a closing gain of 0.4% yesterday on Wall Street).

FX News Today

European Fixed Income Outlook: 10-year Bund future opened at 159.71, versus a close of 159.63 on Wednesday. The 10-year cash yield is down -0.5 bp at 0.402%, while Treasury and JGB yields are still up 0.2 bp, but down from earlier highs. A rebound in Asian stock markets, on hopes of fresh US-Sino trade talks, put pressure on core bonds, but the Chinese markets quickly erased much of their early gains, and in Europe fresh Italy jitters, amid reports that Finance Minister Tria threatens to resign over budget talks, are adding support to Bunds in opening trade. US futures are heading south after a closing narrowly mixed on Wednesday. There is some speculation that Trump may be changing gears with increased efforts behind the scenes to reach deals in orders to win support, but investors remain cautious. EM markets also remain in focus, as Turkey’s central bank meets, amid ongoing political pressure not to hike rates too much, if not at all. Oil prices pulled back from highs over USD 70 per barrel and are trading at USD 69.86. Released at the start of the session, German HICP inflation was confirmed at 1.9% y/y as expected, but the focus is on ECB and BOE meetings today. Both are expected to keep rates unchanged, but Draghi is also likely to confirm the planned phasing out of QE, while downward revisions to growth projections and unchanged cautious guidance on rates will offer an opportunity to wrap the changes in a dovish leaning presser.

FX Update: Yen weakness has been the dominant theme, albeit moderate, during the pre-London open session in Asia, while the Dollar has consolidated losses seen yesterday. USDJPY lifted, as the Japanese currency saw some more of its safe haven premium unwind, following yesterday’s news of the US invitation to senior Chinese officials to restart trade talks. This comes, in true Trumpian fashion, with the US having loaded the gun with tariff hikes on a further $200 bln worth of Chinese imports and threatening to hike tariffs on the remaining $267 bln of imports. USDJPY has lifted back to the mid-111.0s, while EURJPY, AUDJPY and other Yen crosses have concurrently firmed up. Most stock markets in Asia have rallied. EURUSD, after printing a one-week high yesterday at 1.1650 (following news of the US invitation), has drifted to around the 1.1620 mark. The biggest mover out of the main Dollar pairings and associated cross rates has been AUDJPY and CHFJPY, with both showing 0.3% gains.

Main Macro Events Today

* BOE Monetary Policy & Bank Rate – Expectations – BoE’s September policy meeting should prove to be a non-event for markets with no changes expected to settings or guidance at this juncture. The “Old Lady” should reaffirm its commitment to a gradual tightening course, attaching the usual caveats about the risks stemming from enduring Brexit uncertainty and escalating global trade protectionism.

* ECB Press Conference & Rate Decision – Expectations – ECB is widely expected to leave the guidance on rates untouched and confirm the phasing out of net asset purchases by the end of the year. Back in June, Draghi said that ECB anticipates to cut back net asset purchases to EUR 15 bln from October and phase out purchases in December. Focus will also be on the details on planned tweaks to the re-investment strategy, which will likely bring more flexibility for ECB as redemptions start to become more important.

* US CPI and Core – Expectations – CPI is forecast rising to 0.2% m/m for both overall and core prices.

FX News Today

FX Update: The Dollar has been holding mostly narrow ranges against most other currencies, though USDJPY showed a fresh six-week high at 112.07 during early the Tokyo session before settling around the 111.80 mark. Other Yen crosses also registered new highs, before settling, with the Japanese currency following its usual inverse correlative pattern with global stock market direction. The USD index (DXY) has remained broadly unchanged on the day, at 94.50, consolidating yesterday’s losses after the US CPI release. EURUSD is also near net unchanged heading into the London interbank open, at 1.1695, holding just below yesterday’s two-week peak of 1.1701. Cable has similarly held steady near yesterday’s highs. US data releases are up today, including retail sales and industrial production, with risks to the upside.

Asian Market Wrap: 20-year Treasury yields are down -0.2 bp at 2.968%, the 10-year JGB yield is up 0.2 bp at 0.103%, while stock markets moved broadly higher during the Asian session, after a technology-led rise in US markets yesterday. Cautious central banks in Europe, hopes of fresh US-Sino trade talks and a larger-than-expected rate hike in Turkey all make for a positive backdrop to sentiment as the week draws to a close. Topix and Nikkei are up 0.91% and -0.97% respectively. The Hang Seng gained 0.87% and the CSI 300 is up 0.15%, Shanghai and Shenzen Comp are down -0.04% and -0.41% though after Trump cast some doubts over reports of a new round of talks with China and the investment slowdown worsened according to latest data, indicating that policies intended to boost investment growth have not made and impact yet. U.S. futures are moving higher in tandem with FTSE 100 futures and oil prices are slightly higher with the front end Nymex future trading at USD 68.83 per barrel.

Main Macro Events This Week

The trade war appears to be ratcheting up once again amid contradictory signals from the Trump administration. Last week a WSJ story suggested that the Chinese had been invited back to the negotiating table by a trade team headed by the more moderate Mnuchin, though Trump later tweeted that there wasn’t any pressure to make a deal with China. Wall Street responded bullishly to the apparent olive branch and shrugged off the tweet on balance, even after Trump indicated his advisors would be instructed to proceed with the $200 bln in tariffs. This has “increased tail risk” according to JP Morgan analysis in terms of the range of possible outcomes, which will dictate just how much growth may slow, if implemented, and inflation may increase – from nominal changes to significant swings. Fed policy is seen remaining on track in the meantime, as the two effects tend to cancel each other out and US employment and inflation mandates continue to punch in roughly on target.

United States: The US economy remains firm hurtling toward the end of Q3 after a strong 4.2% GDP growth pace in Q2. All survey participants are forecasting another quarter-point tightening in December, too, and most recent Fedspeak has been comfortable with quarterly hikes heading into 2019 as well.

The US economic calendar kicks off with an update on the Empire State index, seen declining to 22.0 in September (Monday), from a 10-month high of 25.6 in August. The NAHB housing market index is forecast (Tuesday) to rise to 68 in September from 67 in August. MBA mortgage market applications are due (Wednesday), and along with housing starts are expected to rise 4.5% in August, to a 1.220 mln rate, after a 0.9% gain to 1.168 mln in July. August building permits are estimated to rise 0.9% to 1.315 mln, following a similar gain in July. The current account balance is forecast to narrow to -$103.3 bln in Q2 (Wednesday), from -$124.1 bln in Q1 reflecting strength in exports but a flat import figure. The Philly Fed index should rise to 19.0 in September (Thursday), from a 2-year low of 11.9 and initial jobless claims are estimated to rise 8k to 212k in the week ended September 15, following a 204k reading in the week of September 8-lowest since December 1969. Existing home sales are anticipated to rebound 1.1% in August to a 5.40 mln pace (Thursday), after declines in the prior four months. Sales declined 6.6% in Q2, after a 6.1% drop in Q1, amid lopsided hurricane rebuilding comparisons the year prior. And the leading economic index is expected to rise 0.5% in August, after a 0.6% gain in July and a 0.5% increase in June.

Canada: Manufacturing shipments (Tuesday) are expected to expand 1.0% in July after the 1.1% gain in June. CPI (Friday) is projected to be flat (0.0%) in August (m/m, nsa) after the 0.5% surge in July, slowing the annual growth rate to 2.9% in August from 3.0% y/y in July. The three core measures are expected to remain near a 2.0% annual growth pace in August. Retail sales (Friday) are seen rising 0.5% in July after the 0.2% decline in June. Retail sales excluding autos are projected to expand 0.6% in July following the 0.1% dip in June. Existing homes sales for August are expected on Monday. The ADP employment survey is due Thursday. Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister Freeland is expected to return to Washington to resume high level NAFTA talks, which could reach a provisional framework.

Europe: Last week, ECB confirmed the tapering of net asset purchases to EUR 15 bln from October and still intends to phase out QE by year end, but with ECB maintaining its stock for now and redemptions becoming more important, comments from ECB President Draghi on Wednesday are likely to stress again that the central bank is still maintaining a still very expansionary policy. Meanwhile, the data calendar focuses on preliminary PMI numbers for September (Friday). The German ZEW came in a tad higher than expected, but German orders numbers were pretty dismal and the geopolitical risk backdrop has not improved significantly. Against that background Eurozone readings are expected to slightly change from the August round with growth and job creation ongoing but slowing down as respondents increasingly note the uncertainties surrounding the longer term outlook. The Eurozone manufacturing PMI is expected at 54.5, down from 54.6 in the previous month, and the services reading is expected to improve slightly to 54.5, which should leave the composite unchanged from August at 54.5. This still suggests ongoing expansion, but would also confirm the decelerating trend. Final August Eurozone HICP (Monday) inflation meanwhile is expected to confirm the preliminary reading of 2.0% y/y, but comes with a slight bias to the downside, after some downward revisions to national data.

UK: Brexit negotiations, now very much at the sharp end, will continue, and will also no doubt continue to be a source of turbulence for sterling markets. Talks will continue this week. The EU’s 28 leaders are due to discuss Brexit at a summit in Salzburg this Thursday, where they are expected to agree to hold an extraordinary meeting in November to sign off on a deal on future relations. Another key event to watch will be the Conservative Party conference, which will take place from September 20 to October 3. The data calendar will be highlighted by August inflation data (Wednesday) and August retail sales numbers (Thursday). The headline CPI is anticipated to ebb back to 2.4% y/y from 2.5% y/y in the month prior, with core prices seen similarly nudging lower, to 1.8% y/y from 1.9% y/y. As for retail sales, a 0.2% m/m contraction in August should be reported, correcting after rising 0.7% m/m in the month prior.

Japan: BoJ announces policy on Wednesday after its two-day meeting. The Bank will likely leave its short-term interest rate target at -0.1% and leave YCC (yield curve control), which guides the 10-year JGB around 0%, in place. The data calendar doesn’t kick off until Wednesday, when the August trade report is due. August national CPI (Friday) is seen at 1.0% y/y from 0.9% overall, and at 0.9% y/y from 0.8% on a core basis. The July all-industry index is also due Friday.

China:The August trade report was released Saturday and showed a new record surplus of $31.1 bln with the US as exports slowed to a 9.8% y/y clip from 12.2%, and imports slipping to 20.0% from 27.3%. That might not sit well with President Trump and could be the catalyst for the $267 bln in increased levies he’s debating. This week, August industrial production (Friday) should remain steady at a 6.0% y/y clip, while August fixed investment (Friday) is penciled in at an unchanged 5.5% y/y pace. August retail sales (Friday) are estimated at an 8.7% y/y rate from 8.8%.

Australia: Another sparse docket is highlighted by the minutes of Reserve Bank of Australia’s September meeting (Tuesday). RBA Assistant Governor (Financial Markets) Kent discusses “Money Creation” at the Reserve Bank’s Topical Talk Event for Educators. The Q2 housing price index (Tuesday) is expected to decline 0.6% (q/q, sa) after the 0.7% drop in Q1.

New Zealand: GDP (Thursday) is projected to expand at a 0.6% pace in Q2 (q/q, sa) after the 0.5% rise in Q1. The current account (Wednesday) is seen moving to a -NZ$1.0 bln deficit in Q2 from the NZ$0.2 bln surplus in Q1.

FX News Today

FX Update: Forex and stock markets are taking the as-expected news of Trump’s trade war escalation in their stride. The tariffs will start at 10% from next Monday before rising to 25% on January 1. Trump has also threatened to tariff the remaining $267 bln worth of Chinese imports into the US if Beijing retaliates, which looks likely to be the case. USDJPY dipped to a low of 111.66, the lowest level seen since last Thursday, before recouping to the 112.00 level, putting the pair at net firmer levels on the day. Even the AUDJPY cross, which has proven to be sensitive to the worsening Sino-US trade war, rebounded out of a three-session low to net higher levels on the day.

Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are up 0.7 bp at 2.994%, after pulling back from levels above 3% yesterday. 10-year JGB yields are down -0.1 bp at 0.107% after coming back from yesterday’s holiday. Japanese markets rallied in catch up trade and Topix and Nikkei gained 1.90% and 1.63% respectively. The Hang Seng meanwhile is down -0.76%, and while Chinese equities initially seemed to shrug off the confirmation of additional Trump tariffs worth USD 200 bln, they have now pared early gains and are little changed – the Hang Seng up 0.01%, and the Shanghai Comp down -0.04%. PBOC’s alarm bells are clearly ringing louder and the bank has injected 200 bln Yuan with reverse repos today, on top of MLF operations that added 265 bln of new one year loans. Bloomberg highlighted looming challenges in the form of quarter end cash demand, and huge maturities in Q4 for MLF loans and corporate debt. At the same time, some feel that after the sharp correction in Chinese equities and with mid-term elections looming for Trump, a sustained recovery for Chinese stocks may be on the horizon, especially since markets do not appear to have priced in much of a risk-fallout for US equities. US stock futures are heading south today and oil prices are down with the front end Nymex future trading at USD 68.54 per barrel.

FX News Today

European Outlook: Global yields continue to trend higher as stock markets shrug off the latest escalation of the US-Sino trade spat. 10-year Bund yields are up 0.3 bp at 0.480% in early trade, the 2-year is up 0.4 bp at -0.531%. 10-year Treasury yields pulled back from yesterday’s highs, but remains above the 3% mark at 3.0465% and 10-year JGB yields rose 0.5 bp to 0.112% as stock markets continued to rally during the Asian session after a strong close in Asia overnight. FTSE 100 futures are moving higher with US futures ahead of key inflation data for the UK today, which is expected to show the headline rate falling back to 2.4% y/y from 2.5% y/y in the previous month. The data calendar also has Eurozone current account data and a German 10-year Bund auction.

Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are down -0.7 bp, but are still holding above the 3% mark at 3.05%. 10-year JGB yields are up 0.5 bp at 0.112%, despite the BoJ decision that, as expected, left policy unchanged. Yields remain elevated as stock markets extend their rally and investors look past the latest round of the US-Sino trade spat that saw Beijing announcing retaliatory tariffs on USD 60 bln of US goods and Trump threatening duties on virtually all imports. China’s Premier Li Keqiang said he won’t let the currency devalue to stimulate exports. With traders buying into the belief that a negotiated solution will be found eventually, Topix and Nikkei managed gains of 1.53% and 1.33% respectively despite the uptick in yields. The CSI 300 is up 1.54%, after already rising more than 2% yesterday, and the Hang Seng gained 1.25%. US stock futures are narrowly mixed, oil prices are slightly higher and the front end Nymex future is trading just under USD 70 per barrel.

FX News Today

Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are down -0.2 bp at 3.061% and 10-year JGB yields are up 0.1 bp at 0.110%. Yields have come quite a way over the past week and Treasury yields are still holding above the 3% mark, but the stock market rally started to stutter during the Asian session with indices turning mixed. The Dow Jones still managed a solid gain yesterday, but the NASDAQ closed slightly lower and in Asia stocks drifted. Japanese indices traded near three-month highs, but at these levels it seems investors are getting cautious as trade concerns continue to cloud over the outlook. Nikkei and Topix are down -0.045 and -0.12% respectively. It would not be the first time that Chinese indices rebound late in session, but it seems for now markets are consolidating and waiting for further news. US futures are also narrowly mixed, oil prices are higher and the WTI future is trading at USD 71.63 per barrel.

FX Action: USDJPY has drifted lower, posting a two-day low at 112.07 in a moderate move driven by a softer Dollar. Risk appetite has continued to hold up with Asian stock markets gaining, albeit modestly, for the most part, and the main Chinese indexes lifting out of negative territory in the first hour of trading after the lunch break. Japanese PM Abe won a leadership challenge by a landslide, as expected, which puts him on track to becoming Japan’s longest serving prime minister. In the bigger view, USDJPY is currently trading in the upper reaches of a broadly sideways range that’s been unfolding for some 10 weeks now. Great odds have been placed for a sustained move downward rather than a sustained move upward as China looks to be digging for trade war escalation (at least until after the midterm elections in the US), which could lead to an increased safe haven premium being put on the Yen. USDJPY has resistance at 112.44-45, and support at 111.77-80.

FX News Today

Asian Market Wrap: Stock markets continued to rally during the Asian session after a record close on Wall Street yesterday. Risk appetite is back after robust US data yesterday added to hopes that the fallout from the latest round of US-China tariffs can be contained and that there will eventually be deals on trade and Brexit, despite little progress at the informal EU summit yesterday. Improvements in emerging market assets have also helped to underpin confidence with investors buying back into the rout. 10-year Treasury yields moved up 1.3 bp to 3.076%, 10 year JGB yields jumped 1.6 bp to 0.125% and 30-year yields rose 4.4 bp as BoJ cut bond purchases. Topix and Nikkei are up 1.01% and 1.06% respectively underpinned by a weaker Yen, the Hang Seng has gained 1.13% so far and the CSI 300 is up 1.80%. US stock futures are equally broadly higher, Oil prices are slightly lower and the November WTI future is trading at USD 70.25 per barrel. Today’s calendar includes Eurozone PMI readings as well as public finance data for the UK.

FX Action: USDJPY has lifted to a fresh two-month high at 112.80 amid a backdrop of a coursing risk-on theme in global markets. The USA30 and USA500 hit record highs yesterday, and Asian stocks have rallied robustly across the board. JP225 hit a 4-month high, and the Shanghai Composite a two-week high, with both showing gains of 1% or more. Expectations for China to turn the fiscal stimulus tap, among other measures, have been helping underpin sentiment in Asia, while the unexpectedly low starting tariff rate of 10% in Trump’s latest move on Chinese imports this week, along with tech sector exemptions, have helped buoy sentiment Global fundamentals are otherwise solid, despite the threat from the trade war escalation (with Beijing not expected to negotiate until after the mid-term elections in the US).

* Eurozone Sep. PMI – Expectations – The Eurozone manufacturing PMI is expected at 54.5, down from 54.6 in the previous month, and expect the services reading to improve slightly to 54.5, which should leave the composite unchanged from August at 54.5. This still suggests ongoing expansion, but would also confirm the decelerating trend.

* Canada CPI & Retail Sales – Expectations – CPI is expected to hold steady in August after the 0.5% surge in July. The CPI is projected to grow at a 2.9% y/y pace in August, easing slightly from the 3.0% pace in July that was the top of BoC’s 1-3% target range. Canada retail sales values are expected to rise 0.5% in July after the 0.2% drop in June.

FX News Today

FX Action: USDJPY posted a two-month high of 112.98 during the Tokyo morning session, which was the product of a bout of general Yen selling capped out in the face of Japanese exporter offers. The release of the minutes of the recent BoJ meeting had little impact, nor did a speech by BoJ Governor Kuroda, who said it will take longer than expected to bring inflation to the central bank’s 2% target. China said talks with the US cannot take place under threats and pressure, while the US approved of a $330 mln arms sale to Taiwan, which is sure to ruffle feathers in Beijing.

Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields climbed 0.8 bp to 2.096%, and JGB yields picked up 0.4 bp to 0.123%, after returning from holiday. There were no real surprises in the BoJ minutes from the July meeting and the JGB curve continues to steepen. Australia’s 10-year bond jumped 5.1 bp amid stop selling after the 10-year future broke contract lows and following a pick up in Treasury yields yesterday. Chinese 10-year rates meanwhile declined. Stock markets also traded mixed, as Japan and China returned from holiday. Trade concerns remained high on the agenda as China warned that it won’t agree to trade talks unless the US stops threatening additional tariffs. US political developments also clouded over confidence. Topix and Nikkei are up 0.56% and 0.15% respectively and CSI lost -1.08%, while US futures are marginally lower. Oil prices rose further above the USD 72 per barrel mark.

FX Action: USDJPY traded above 113.00 for the first time since mid July, posting a high at 113.02, before settling to a narrow range just under the figure. AUDJPY concurrently posted a three-session high and while EURJPY also lifted, the cross remained just off recent five-month highs. Buoyant stock markets have kept the Yen on a softening path. China equities recorded gains, with the Shanghai Composite showing a 1.3% gain in the first hour of trading in the PM session, posting an eight-week high earlier on the day. The MSCI Asia-Pacific (ex Japan) index is showing a 0.4% advance, although also off its highs. Chinese equities were lifted by news that MSCI is considering quadrupling the weighting of Chinese big-caps in its global benchmarks.

Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are down -0.4 bp at 3.093%, 10-year JGB yields pulled back -0.6 bp to 0.117%. Yields remain at high level ahead of the Fed decision today and as global central banks continue to reign in stimulus. Asian stock markets meanwhile moved mostly higher, although Japanese indices traded mixed with the Topix retreating from its highest level in almost eight months. Hong Kong returned from holiday and rallied in catch up trade, while Chinese markets got a boost from reports that MSCI is considering to lift the weight of shares in its global indexes. US President Trump told the UN that the trade deficit with China “is just not acceptable”. Meanwhile the Asian Development Bank warned that the US-China trade war is dimming Asia’s growth outlook for next year. The Topix is down -0.26%, against a 0.30% gain in the Nikkei. Hang Seng and CSI 300 rallied 1.83% and 1.84% respectively, the ASX is little changed at +0.02%. U.S. futures are also broadly higher. Oil prices are slightly lower, but the front end Nymex future continues to trade above USD 72 per barrel.

FX News Today

FX Action: Both the Dollar and the Yen have risen against most other currencies, with the Japanese currency outperforming its North American counterpart. This comes amid a risk-off backdrop, with Asian stock markets having come under pressure following a firm start. Japan’s Nikkei 225 declined 1% at its close, while the Shanghai Composite reversed out of an AM-session gain, and is presently at its lows and showing a 0.6% loss in the second hour of the PM session. EURUSD and EURJPY have ebbed to respective one-week lows of 1.1691 and 131.67. USDJPY edged out a three-day low at 112.60, while EURJPY posted a one-week low at 131.77. AUDJPY, which has been the biggest mover out of the main Dollar pairings and associated cross rates, also traded at one-week lows with a loss of 0.5%. Focus will now fall on Italy. There have been reports that a Cabinet meeting is scheduled today to finalize the Economic and Financial Document after being postponed “due to new complications” as the coalition government struggles to find common ground over the budget. This issue, if unresolved, has the potential to send the Euro sharply lower.

Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields lost earlier gains and are down 0.9 bp at 3.039%, 10-year JGB yields declined -0.3 bp to 0.110% and bonds were generally sought as stock markets declined. Wall Street turned negative late in the session following the FOMC meeting, which hiked rates as expected and removed the “accommodative” language. At the same time the “neutral” rate was lifted and Fed continues to pencil in another move this year, and three more for 2019, with Powell saying that Fed could raise rates past the neutral level. Topix and Nikkei are down -0.81% and -0.54% respectively, Hang Seng and CSI 300 declined -0.27% and -0.32% and the ASX lost -0.19% so far. US stock futures are trying to move higher though, indicating that investors will quickly recover from the Fed statement that is, in some ways, ambiguous for the markets. Oil prices are higher and the front end Nymex future is trading at USD 72.34 per barrel.

FX News Today

FX Action:USDJPY has settled around 113.00, above the eight-session low printed yesterday at 112.82. Ranges have been narrow in currency markets, despite risk appetite remaining firmly on the negative side of the dial. The MSCI Asia-Pacific (ex Japan) Index hit a 17-month low. The IMF cut its growth forecasts for both this year and next, including downgrades of the outlooks for the US, Europe and China. PBoC set the USD-CNY reference rate at 6.9019. Often times, such a backdrop would see the Yen appreciate, though the rise in US over Japan yield differential appears to be providing offsetting support for USDJPY. The 10-year US Treasury yield has today lifted to a fresh 7-year highs above 3.25%.

Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are up 0.5 bp at 3.239%, Treasury yields climbed 0.1 bp to 0.146%, while stocks traded mixed during the Asian session. Chinese and Hong Kong markets stabilized after yesterday’s sharp correction in Chinese stocks that were partly driven by catch up trades. A stronger Yen meanwhile weighed on Japanese equities. IMF warnings on the global growth outlook meanwhile lifted pressure on bonds, although the IMF referred mainly to growth outside the US and tax cut fuelled expansion in the US will continue to keep the Fed on a tightening path. Still, some are expecting BoJ to act more aggressively to curb the uptick in long yields. Topix and Nikkei are currently down -1.84% and -1.30% respectively. The ASX fell -0.97% though, and U.S. stock futures are also down while oil prices climbed higher and the front end Nymex future is trading at USD 74.67 per barrel.

FX News Today

European Fixed Income Outlook: 10-year Bund yields are down -5.5 bp at 0.495% in opening trade, French yields down -4.6 bp and most peripheral yields are also down as the stock market rout deepened during the Asian session. Italian BTPs are once again the exception and the 10-year yield backed up 2.3 bp to 3.523% amid ongoing fiscal concerns. Elsewhere bond markets are being supported though as investors dump equities amid growing concerns about earnings and the global outlook as trade tensions increasingly show up in earnings reports. European stock futures are down 1.4-1.9% in early trade, underperforming versus US futures, which are down 0.7-0.8% at the moment. Italy and Brexit developments will remain in focus today, while the data calendar focuses on inflation data out of France, Spain, Sweden. Released overnight, the UK RICS house price balance fell back to 2% from 1% in the previous month.

FX Action: USDJPY has posted a 3-week low at 111.97, and EURJPY and AUDJPY have both seen 1-month lows. Yen outperformance, although relatively moderate, drove the moves amid a backdrop of plunging stock markets, which has seen the Japanese currency pick up safe haven demand. Wall Street saw its worst day in over eight months yesterday, with the USA500 closing with a 3.3% loss, and USA500 futures have extended lower by a further 1% in overnight trading with Asian markets hit hard. Japan’s Nikkei is down 4.4% heading into the Tokyo close while the Shanghai Composite is off by 4.6% in the first hour of trading after the lunch break. The rise in US and global yields over the last week, which has come amid signs that inflation is making a return, is getting principal blame in market narratives (while Trump blamed the “crazy” Fed), in what seems like a post-financial crises watershed. The consequences of trade protectionism is also in the mix.
