Market Update – September 30 – Quarter End.

UserPostedImage
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*USDIndex – has dropped back to 112.00, as bonds and stocks remained very jittery into quarter end, month end and week end. The US Q2 chain price indexes accelerated to 9.0% for the headline, and 4.7% for the core. Credibility issues are keeping also buyers sidelined as the central banks are seen having waited too long to address rising price pressures, with worries now that they are overdoing rate hikes and will push the world into recession.
*Yields: The German 10-year rate is down -3.2 bp in early trade, the US rate -4.1 bp.
*UK PM Liz Truss will stick to her plan to reignite economic growth, breaking her silence after nearly a week of financial market chaos.
*German Chancellor Olaf Scholz – set out $196 billion “defensive shield”, including a gas price brake and a cut in sales tax for the fuel, to protect companies and households from the impact of soaring energy prices. That came after the 10.9% German Inflation figure for September.

*Stocks were headed for their worst month! Nikkei still closed with a loss of -1.8%, the ASX was down -1.2% by end of trade while CSI 300 and Hang Seng are down -0.3% and up 0.1% respectively. However, markets seem to be finding a footing and European and US futures are mostly managing slight gains.
*Japan’s factories ramped up output in August and China’s factory activity returned to growth this month, data showed.
*GBP – has lifted above 1.10
*EUR – is at 0.98.
*JPY – traded at 144.57.
*USOil – steady at $81.
*Gold – rebounded to $1670.
*BTC – steady at 19410
*VIX index has been on the rise and hit 33.46 earlier, just shy of the 34.75 May high, though has yet to really test the 40 area last seen in late 2020.

Market Update – October 14 – Wild, Wild Swings following US CPI, Risks in London Rise.

UserPostedImage
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*USDIndex – Spiked to 113.80 following hot reading for CORE CPI and then reversed sharply into 112.20 as Stocks staged a record reversal (from -3% to +over 2%) on short covering, technical floors being tested and ? perhaps assumptions that the top is finally in for inflation (Headline fell for 3rd consecutive month). Yields also whipsawed, with at one point, all major maturities above 4%. (US 10yr closed 3.902% & the 2/10 year rate inversion {a sign of recession} sits at 51bp). 75 bp fro Nov 2 fully priced in, and a 71% chance of a further 75bp in December. (This will take hikes since March to 450 bp).
*The UK’s new fiscal policy remains squarely under threat as Chancellor Kwarteng returns from the IMF meetings a day early (last person to do that was the Greek Fin. Min. in 2011 and many are predicting a similar outcome both politically and economically). The BOE’s Bond-Buying programme ends today, uncertainty swirls as tax U-turns become priced in. Sterling rallied and then rallied again, but Gilts remain fragile. Asian markets follow Wall Street higher (Nikkei +3.25% Hang Seng +2.64%) & European FUTS also higher.
*EUR – rotated through 0.9700, down to 0.9632 before rallying to 0.9800.
*JPY – rallied to new 32-year (1990) highs at 147.67 and with no signs of BOJ action! Suzuki and Kishida remain committed to accommodative policy. Trades at 147.35 now.
*GBP – Sterling rallied from .1.1075 to over 1.1300 to 1.1375. Immense pressure on PM Truss & Chancellor Kwarteng to reverse tax cuts as successors are rumoured and the Tories are 30% behind in opinion polls.
*Stocks – Wall Street dove on the data given the jump in rates and as the market priced in greater risk for a hard landing. The NASDAQ plunged over -3.0%, with the S&P500 over -2.25% lower, and the Dow down almost -1.90% before turning around to end with solid gains. The Dow rallied to close with a 2.83% gain, a 1400 point round-trip, while the S&P 500 was up over 3% before ending with a 2.60% gain. US500 3577. BLK (assets tumbled but earnings beat)+6.58%, BAC +6.13%, NFLX +5.27%, APPL +3.36%. US500 FUTS trades at 3706 now.

*USOil – declined again on the CPI data & global recession worries into $85.51, before reversing sharply to $89.50 as USD weakened and risk aversion dipped.
*Gold – plunged to $1642 before recovering to trade at $1668 now but remains pressured.
*BTC – plummeted to $17.9K yesterday, trades at $19.8k now.

Market Update – October 17 – Tug-of-war!

UserPostedImage
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*USDIndex – steady at 112.90 following US inflation which reinforced bets of a 90.9% chance of a 75 basis point rate hike, and a 9.1% chance of a 100 bp increase in the Fed’s next meeting. Yields down, 10-year Treasury rate is down -4.1 bp at 3.977% and the German Bund future has corrected -6.3 bp, after the JGB rate corrected -0.3 bp to 0.24%.
GBP – Sterling rallied to 1.1300 on calls for PM Truss to resign and ahead of UK Chancellor announcement for tax and spending measures, 2 weeks earlier than scheduled, as he tries to stem a loss of confidence in the government’s fiscal plans. Truss said on Friday that corporation tax will rise to 25% from April 2023 instead of remaining it at 19% as part of her government’s initial “mini-budget”. Medium-term fiscal plan remains as scheduled on Oct. 31.
Daily Mail reported that: “British lawmakers will try to oust Truss this week despite Downing Street’s warning that it could trigger a general election.”
EUR – slightly up to 0.9735.
JPY – pinned to 32-year (1990) highs at 148.79 as markets await signs of intervention from Japanese authorities.
Stocks – Stock markets have remained under pressure overnight, after a weak close on Wall Street Friday, after inflation concerns were rekindled by a US survey showing the first rise in inflation expectations in a while. Still, US futures are higher and with a nearly 1% rise in the NASDAQ leading the way.
China and Hong Kong stocks fell after Chinese President Xi talked up national security, while dashing hopes of any changes in growth-hitting zero-COVID policies and property sector curbs. Xi called for accelerating the building of a world-class military, while touting the fight against COVID-19 as he kicked off the Communist Party Congress on Sunday by focusing on security and reiterating policy priorities. Greater emphasis on national security comes amid heightened geopolitical tensions. The biggest applause came when Xi restated opposition to Taiwan independence.

Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*USDIndex gets softer, breaking 112.00 floor and currently at 111.70. Treasuries gained ground though pared the rally into the close, richened though underperformed Gilts and European bonds. Much of the impetus again came from across the Pond after new UK Chancellor Hunt confirmed a complete U-turn on the government’s fiscal plan. The bull steepener saw the curve at -44 bps from -48 bps Friday.
A weaker than expected Empire State index has added to beliefs the FOMC’s tightening is cutting into growth and will ultimately lower inflation, hence slowing rate hikes down the road.
*EUR – crossed 20-DMA and currently at 0.9850.
*JPY – at 149.10 for the first time since August 1990.

UserPostedImage

*Stocks – US100 paced the surge, jumping 3.43%, while the US500 climbed 2.66%, back above Support level at 3700 (20-DMA), with the US30 up 1.86%. The UK100 was up as much as 1.47% before gains were trimmed to 0.90%. Bank of America’s Q3 earnings beat expectations, attributed to “resilient” US consumers (share price +6%). JPMorgan Chase reported smaller than expected drop in profits.

*USOil – holds support at $85 amid softer USD and as Russia cuts supplies to Europe. – A weaker USD makes oil cheaper for non-US buyers.
*Gold – $1660.
*BTC – extends some gains from yesterday to $19534.
*UK Chancellor Hunt announced overnight the scrapping of plans to cut income tax indefinitely & the plan to reduce the entry level tax will be shelved. Cuts to dividend tax rates and tourist VAT will be reversed as well. At the same time, the UK will shorten universal energy support to April 2023 and instead the government will look into more targeted support measures. Hunt warned that more difficult decisions are coming on spending in order to get finances under control and restore market trust in the UK economy. So far it has worked as the Gilt yield plunged 35 bps to 2.83%, the FTSE climbed to 6920, and Cable tested 1.1439 before dipping back to 1.1327 at the close.
*The BOE is likely to delay the sale of 838 billions pounds of government bonds to encourage greater stability in gilt markets following Britain’s failed “mini” budget, the Financial Times reported on Tuesday.

Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*USDIndex steady below 20-DMA at 112.20. Yields are rising and the rally in stocks is petering out, although ASX and Nikkei still managed to post modest gains and futures are up across Europe and the US. The 10-year Treasury rate has lifted 4.4 bp to 4.05% though and the Bund yield is up 1.1 bp at 2.3%.
*EUR – holds Tuesday’s gains at 0.9830.
*JPY – at 149.42 and eyeing the psychologically important 1.50 mark.
*GBP – slightly below 1.1300 again. UK inflation higher than expected at 10.1% in September, versus 9.9% in August and compared to consensus expectations for a 10.1% y/y reading. RPI, still an important indicator for wage negotiations, lifted to 12.6% from 12.3%. Numbers will add to the arguments in favor of at least a 75 bp hike from the BoE in November.

*Stocks – Stocks surged at the open, rising over 2%, but closed with gains of 1.13% on the US30, 1.16% on the US500 (back over 3700), and 0.90% on the US100. Some decent earnings news and hopes for more of the same (Netflix beat in after-hours release) helped underpin.
*Netflix shares ticked up to the highest at $248.98 following results that beat consensus estimates: EPS: $3.10; Rev: $7.93B; Global Subscribers: +2.41 mil. The management ‘very optimistic’ regarding its new ad-supported plan. But later closed the day lower at $240.74.
*USOil – dropped -2.67% to $83.18 after the White House confirmed additional supply of 10 to 15 mln barrels will be released from the SPR and natgas tumbled -4.77% to $5.71, the lowest close since July 7.

*USDIndex rallies to 113 but currently steady. Yields jump near the highs of the session, and indeed multi-year peaks, with some impetus from higher than expected inflation out of the UK and Canada. Ongoing hawkish Fedspeak kept bond bears in control too. The break of 4.10% on the 10-year added to the selloff, as did a disappointing 20-year auction and a hefty corporate calendar.
*Supply is pressuring the stock market with a corporate issuance and a 20-year auction hitting today. Lockheed Martin has a 5-tranche sale slated, including 3-, 5-, 10-, 32-, and 41-year maturities. Diageo Capital has a 3-, 5-, and 10-year offering on the calendar. Procter & Gamble and Nestlé reported lower sales volumes.

*USOil – climbed 3.55% to $85.76, ignoring the White House’s announcement of an additional 15 mln barrels of oil to be released from the SPR. Nat gas slumped another -5.24% to $5.44.

Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*USDIndex – Spiked down to 111.30 following more BOJ intervention as the JPY whipsawed and GBP rallied following the news that Boris Johnson will not run for PM again. USDIndex is now back to 112.00. Xi Jinping cemented power for a third 5-year term, Chinese data very mixed, GDP & Ind Production & Trade balance all big beats but Unemployment rises and Retail sales misses significantly. AUD & JPY Manu. PMI’s both missed. More Fedspeak over weekend shows signs that some may be looking to slow down rate hikes, possibly as early as the December meeting. Has cycle-high “Peak Dollar” been realised? Asian markets also very mixed following Chinese data, despite strong Wall Street close (Nikkei +0.51% Hang Seng -5.54%), European FUTS higher.
*EUR – rotated from 0.9700, lows on Friday to 0.9900 today as USD demand swung wildly.
*JPY – FT reported that BOJ bought $30 bln Yen on Friday as the pair hit 152.00, spiked to down to 146.00, before rallying to 149.50 again today and then further signs of BOJ action took the pair to 145.70 before once again recovering to 149.00 now.

German retail sales rose 0.9% m/m in September.
*EUR – hovering around parity 1.0000.

Better revenue and profit news from Apple (up 7.6% Friday, its biggest daily jump since July 2020) helped boost investor sentiment today, while hopes the FOMC will back off aggressive rate hikes after the well expected 75 bps on Wednesday supported too.
*US30 had its 4th consecutive week higher and all markets closed +2.5% (its best month since 1976). 263 companies of S&P500 have reported, 73% have beat expectations. Today though US futures are in red.
