Market Update – November 3 – FED – Slower Hikes but for Longer.

UserPostedImage
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*The FOMC rose rates by the as expected 75bp (4th consecutive hike to 14-year highs) and suggested lower rate hikes – “time to reassess pace of rate hikes is coming” – (50bp into Dec and 25bp into Q123) but perhaps for longer, “very premature to think about pausing.” Also suggesting a higher terminal rate, (5.1%) and then Powell re-iterated that “we have some ways to go until inflation is defeated.” USD and Stocks whipsawed wildly on the two-edged communication. Also this week jobs market remains HOT, JOLTS were better & ADP at 239K was 23% over expectations – so today’s claims and tomorrow’s NFP will be key.
*USDIndex – Dived to 110.25 on initial headline, but trades 1.8% higher now at 112.23. US Stocks rallied and then tanked lower into close (NASDAQ -3.36% underperformed again). 10-yr yields flirted under 4.0% but hold at 4.06%, and the 2-10yr yield curve remains the most inverted (and therefore most recessionary in 22 years). Asian markets weaker and EUR futures flat.
*Overnight – AUD Services PMIs better than expected (49.3) & Chinese Service PMIs worse than expected (48.4) both still in contraction.
*EUR – from a spike to 0.9980 has dropped to 0.9780 now.
*JPY – dipped to 145.80 but now trades at 147.85.
*GBP – Sterling lifted to 1.1560 on the immediate FED announcement before Powell press conference took it to 1.1340 now. Today the Bank of England is expected to follow FED with a 75bp interest rate hike (biggest in 33 years and taking rates in UK to 3%)
*Stocks – Wall Street were lower with big moves for Tech stocks (AMZN -4.83%, GOOG -3.79%) in particular. US500 closed -96.08 (-2.50%) at 3756, FUTS trades at 3762 now.

UserPostedImage

*USOil – rallied from $87.75 lows yesterday up to $90.00, after inventory draw-down of -3.1m vs 0.2m. Prices have now dipped to $89.00.

Markets are pricing in a “lame-duck” President Biden for the final 2-yrs of his administration as Republicans are likely to take control of the House of Representatives, with likely curbs on the debt ceiling, spending cuts and action to support energy companies, as inflation bites into businesses and households.

Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*The USD Index slipped further to test 109.20 yesterday, and trades at 109.60, at today. Stocks moved higher again (DOW +1.00%) and Yields held at recent highs. The Crypto Complex has tanked with BTCUSD down from $20.5k to under $16.8k, lows before recovering, as leading crypto exchange FTX was forced to sell out to rival Binance. Asian shares have slipped too (Nikkei -0.56%, Hang Seng -1.88%). Chinese Inflation was mixed with CPI cooling to 2.5% from 2.4% but PPI -1.3% vs -1.5%.

Mid Term election results are suggesting a win for the Republicans in the House (but not the Red Wave landslide some had predicted) while the Senate remains very close with a key win in Pennsylvania for the Democrats. A gridlocked Washington, even if the Democrats hold-on to control in the Senate, which many assume will be beneficial for stock-markets and see a weaker USD appears to be the most likely outcome.

*EUR – continued to rally yesterday and tested the next resistance at 1.0100, and trades at 1.0060, holding the hugely psychological parity 1.0000 level.
*JPY – dipped again breaching 146.00 to 145.25 lows and trades at 145.85.
*GBP – Sterling dipped to 1.1440, but then rallied to test 1.1600 and holds at 1.1540 now.
*Stocks – Wall Street rallied over 1.75% from open, gave up all their gains and then clawed back 0.5-1.0%. Big movers included COIN -10.78%, LYFT -22.9% and TSLA -2.93% (Musk sold $3.95bn shares). US500 closed +21 (+0.56%) at 3828, FUTS trades at 3827 now.

*BTC – crashed to $16.8k from $20.5k, before recovering to $18.3k now. FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried was forced to sell his exchange to rival Binance as a run on FTT coin, which is FTX’s token and Bankman-Fried’s trading company Alameda Research.

Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*The USD Index closed at 106.389 but had tumbled to a low of 106.28 from an overnight high of 108.44. It’s down from 112.93 on the November 3 FOMC day. Stocks extended gains at the Friday close with another solid session, albeit in choppy action amid worries over the bankruptcy of FTX. Yields – 10-year Treasury yield is up 6.7 bp at 3.88%, EGB yields are correcting from the highs seen on Friday, however the ECB remains on course to tighten rates beyond neutral and start QT next year.
*EUR – above parity at 1.0320.
*JPY – sideways at 139.50.
*GBP – turned below 1.1800.
*Stocks – US100 to a 1.88% surge, while the US500 was up 0.92%. The US30 edged up 0.1%. The components of the US500 were mixed but a 3% pop in energy and a 2.46% jump in consumer discretionary sectors helped overcome losses in health care and utilities. Today, stocks struggled a bit and corrected some of last week’s gains, although China bourses got a boost from official directives aimed at supporting the ailing property sector, which added to the slight easing of virus restrictions that were announced last week. Hang Seng and CSI 300 are currently up 1.8% and 0.2% respectively, after Nikkei and ASX closed with losses of -1.1% and -0.2%, weighed down by financials data. GER40 and UK100 futures are up 0.2% and 0.1%.
*Reuters reported that Chinese regulators have told financial institutions to extend more support to property developers to shore up the struggling real estate sector.
*USOil – at $88.40.
*Gold – had its best week since March, currently holds gains at 1763.
*BTC – slipping into the $16,000 area again.

Today – Xi & Biden in Bali for G20 meeting. SNB Chairman Jordan Speaks & FOMC Member Brainard Speaks.

Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*The USDIndex extended declines today below 106.00. Treasury yields closed higher but off their early peaks. Positioning is playing an important part after huge post-CPI rallies. Hawkish comments from the Fed’s Waller have pressured yields sharply higher as a lot of last week’s rally is unwound (remember Treasuries were closed Friday). And the lack of a more dovish lean from Fed VC Brainard sustained the erosion.
*Stocks are managing gains, as markets are also buying into hopes of easing tensions between Beijing and Washington, amid a face-to-face meeting between Biden and Xi Jinping, with speculation that improved co-operation will limit the risk that Chinese companies will be de-listed in the US. Confidence in the Chinese economy is returning after officials moved to ease some virus restrictions and offered more support for the beleaguered property sector, despite retail sales contracting in October.
*EUR – extends to 1.040 amid risk on.
*JPY – holds below 140.00. Japan GDP unexpectedly contracted in the third quarter.
*GBP – steady at 1.1800. UK wages rise at quickest pace in a year as hiring advances. But unemployment rises at 3.6% from 3.5% (3m/y). Sterling strengthens ahead of the full fiscal plan that is due this week.
*Stocks – Nikkei and ASX closed narrowly mixed, after a lower close on Wall Street yesterday, but US futures are also managing gains, and the GER40 is up 0.4%. The UK100 is essentially treading water though. Amazon down by 2.3% as it is preparing layoffs that could total about 10,000 workers as the company continues a broad cost-cutting review led by Chief Executive Andy Jassy. (Reuters)
*USOil – at $84.90
*Gold – jumps to 1783.60, 3rd day above 200-day SMA.

Today – German ZEW and European prelim. Q3 GDP.

Market Update – November 16 – Risk aversion picked up.

Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*The USDIndex’s safe-haven gains fizzled and held at the low 106.00 area. Yields had plunged on the PPI data, but 5-year closed at 3.890%, the 2-year at 4.326%, and the 10-year at 3.772%, respectively. Stocks supported by cooler PPI but pressured afterwards as news of a Russian-made missile strike in Poland sparked fears of heightened geopolitical tensions. US President Biden who said the missile was unlikely to have been fired by Russia helped to calm nerves.
*EUR – retests once again the 1.040.
*JPY – holds at 139.50, while Risk-sensitive Antipodeans, AUDUSD is up at 0.6782, and NZDUSD at 0.6175. Australian wages boasted the largest rise in a decade last quarter as a super-tight labour market finally made itself felt, raising the risk of further rate hikes.
*GBP – steady at 1.1860 – UK CPI jumped to 11.1% y/y in October from 10.1% y/y in the previous month. Core inflation failed to decelerate as anticipated and held steady at 6.5% y/y.

UserPostedImage

*Stocks – closed in the green with gains of 1.45% on the US100, 0.87% on the US500, and 0.17% on the US30. But they are well off of early highs where the future showed the US100 knee-jerking nearly 3% on the data, while the US500 was up 1.9%, with the US30 up over 1.1%. Better than expected earnings/guidance from Walmart and hopes for a bounce in Chinese growth supported too.
*USOil – at $85.95
*Gold – jumps to 1787, but steady so far today.

Today – US Retail Sales and Canadian Inflation along.

Market Update – November 18 – Tough talks to rescue Dollar?

UserPostedImage
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*USDIndex peaked to 107.20 but it lost altitude into the close, now at 106.40. The hawkish outlook from the Fed’s Bullard weighed on bonds and stocks, though the markets managed to pare losses late in the day. Bullard stressed that the funds rate needs to go higher and into restrictive territory and suggested a worst case scenario of 7%. Yields – 10-year climbed to 3.80% before dipping to 3.767%.
*Stocks –choppier but was generally underwater due to the Fed outlook, recession fears, and ongoing geopolitical risks. But losses were trimmed, leaving the US100 down -0.35%, the US500 off -0.31%, and the US30 fractionally lower.

UserPostedImage

*EUR – choppy at 1.038, struggling to break 200-day SMA.
*JPY – holding below 140.
*GBP – holds above 1.1900, as UK retail sales rebounded in October. However, Sales are down more than 6% on the year on both measures and the data are a flagging the impact inflation and the erosion of real disposable income are having on overall activity. GDP already contracted in the third quarter of the year and the fourth quarter is likely to be worse. Chancellor Hunt did his best to sell his budget as measured and appropriate, but the prospect of a rising tax burden just as mortgage costs are on a steep incline will hit consumption and overall growth further.
*USOil – down -5% to $81.20, impacted by the stronger dollar earlier, as well as on fears a recession will crimp demand along with signs that supply chains are easing.
*Gold – down to $1760 on very hawkish Bullard.

Today – ECB’s President Lagarde, German Buba President Nagel & BoE’s Haskel speeches.

Market Update – November 24 – FOMC Mins. & Data conspire to sink USD.

UserPostedImage
Trading Leveraged Products is risky

The USD Index has collapsed from over 107.80 on Monday to 105.50 today.
FOMC Mins. – Confirmed that a “substantial majority” believed slowing in the pace of increases would likely soon be appropriate. That largely confirms what has been priced in, with a 50 bp increase fully priced in for December and “significant uncertainty” about the ultimate level of the funds rate. “Various participants” (Bullard , Mester, etc no doubt) noted that with few signs of inflation abating and demand and supply still out of balance, they suspected the ultimate level of the funds rate would have to be “somewhat higher” than previously seen. Powell seemed to confirm this at the press conference.

Earlier Weekly Claims jumped to a 240k and the Continuing Claims hit a high not seen since March. Whilst Durable Goods were stronger than expected, PMI data missed. The mixed news gave a lift to stocks, weighed on the Dollar and saw yields drop too. US10-yr closed at 3.69%, with the 2/10 yr inversion at -79 bps.

*EUR – rallied to over 1.0400 an 8-day high at 1.0448 earlier.
*JPY – eased all the way down to 138.50 zone from over 141.60 yesterday. JPY PMI missed and moved back into contraction at 49.4 from 50.7.
*GBP – Sterling rallied on the weaker USD breaking & breaching the key 1.2000 slevel and testing 1.2080.
*Stocks – Wall Street closed in the green (NASDAQ +0.99%) TSLA +7.82% (upgrade from CITI to Neutral from Sell). In the UK Manchester United shares rallied +26.8% on news the Glazier family could be willing to sell some or all of their holdings). US500 +23.68 (+0.59%) 4027, FUTS trades at 4042 now.

*BTC – Sentiment woes continue, but holds $16.6k today capped at $16.8k.

Trading Leveraged Products is risky

*The USDIndex rallied to 106.70 in the previous session but formed a correction in Asia session to 106.00 ahead of a COVID-19 press briefing in China that is spurring hopes of a potential easing in the country’s strict pandemic restrictions.
*Fed Officials Signal Higher rates: Hawkish reminders from key Fed officials Williams, Bullard, and Brainard that rates will have to go higher helped weigh on the markets in Monday action. Wall Street was weaker overnight on the back of Williams’s and Bullard’s comments, and slipped further as Brainard tripled down on the rate outlook.
*US houses prices fall like in 2008.
*Stocks – Global stocks rise after yesterday’s dip. US100 and US500 dropped -1.58% and 1.54%, respectively, with the US30 off -1.45% amid broadbased weakness.

Hang Seng and CSI 300 bounced 4% and 3% respectively. ASX and Nikkei closed narrowly mixed. GER40 and UK100 futures are up 0.5% and 0.4% respectively.
*EUR – reversed from 5-month peak. Currently at 1.0360. ECB’s Lagarde said overnight that inflation had not peaked and it risks turning out even higher than currently expected, hinting at a series of interest rate hikes ahead.
*JPY along with Yuan, Aussie and Kiwi on bid.
*GBP – turns again below 1.20 at 1.1987.
*USOil – jumps to 80.00 as China refines its approach for dealing with protest and Covid control. All eyes are on weekend OPEC+ meeting. EU fails to agree on Russian oil price cap once again.

*USDIndex slightly below 1-week amid reports of a softer stance on Covid emerging in China’s official rhetoric, which is keeping hopes alive that there won’t be a move back to tighter restrictions. All eyes are on an expected hawkish stance from Chair Powell’s speech today.
*Stocks – The Nikkei closed with a -0.2% loss, the ASX managed a 0.4% gain and Hang Seng and CSI300 are currently up 1.1% and 0.1% respectively. GER40 and UK100 futures are up 0.6% and 0.4% respectively. US futures are underperforming, but also managing slight gains. Wall Street closed mixed with the NASDAQ dropping -0.59% on weakness in tech and the rise in yields.
*Japan’s factory output fell for a 2nd consecutive month in October, and China’s factory activity contracted at a faster pace in November, weighed down by softening global demand.
*JPY – is holding in the 138-139 range.
*USOil – supported ahead of the OPEC+ meeting on December 4. Energy was lifted by easing in China jitters.
*AUD & NZD downward pressure from worse than expected Chinese manufacturing surveys.
*Gold – extends gain to $1757.

Today – Attention is on Powell’s speech later today, who is likely to reinforce yesterday’s hawkish Fedspeak from Williams, Bullard, and Mester who all stressed rates are headed higher still and could remain so for some time. Elsewhere is EU HICP, US ADP and Q3 GDP.
