FX News Today
  • 10-year Treasury yields are down -0.4 bp at 2.519% and JGB rates up 0.2 bp at -0.052%, as Asian stock markets traded narrowly mixed, with threats of new tariffs on European goods from President Trump adding to the cautious tone in the markets.

FX News Today
  • 10-year Treasury yields are unchanged at 2.497% and JGB yields up 0.6 bp at -0.059%, in catch up trade, after perky US PPI readings put pressure on bonds yesterday, even if they are not expected to alter the Fed’s patient policy setting for now.
  • Chinese bonds continue to underperform amid warnings on the still large number of non-performing loans that could threaten some banks and force the government to step in.

FX News Today
  • The broad rise in Asian long yields holds as local stock markets rallied in catch up trade after a strong close on Wall Street.
  • Trade talk hopes, signs of improving growth and low inflation, coupled with positive earnings reports continued to underpin stock market sentiment. Mnuchin suggested over the weekend that US-Sino talks are nearing the final round and that the final agreement would go “way beyond” previous efforts to open China’s markets to US companies.
  • US futures are narrowly mixed while European stock markets are underpinned.
  • Japanese markets are closing for 10 consecutive days from April 27 to May 6, inclusive.
  • After the strong first quarter earnings report from JPMorgan on Friday the focus is now turning to Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and Bank of America.
  • The front end WTI future is trading at $63.53 per barrel.
  • USD and JPY lower vs most currencies, risk appetite up on strong China import data.
  • GBP steady after EU Brexit extension; risk is it won’t resolve UK political gridlock.

Technician’s Corner

  • EURUSD keeps trading close to 3-week highs of 1.1323. Stochastics, RSI and the MACD show signals of further improvement intraday. Next Resistance point holds at 1.1330.
  • GBPUSD pulled back under 1.3100 after leaving a high at 1.3120. It is supported from the confluence of 200-period EMA and PP level the past 7 consecutive hours, at 1.3084. Next Support is set at 1.3065.
  • USDJPY settled at around PP level at 111.90 . However after Friday’s high the positive sentiment is decreasing with intraday RSI and MACD turning lower as the overall outlook remains positive. The upside Resistance level is set at 112.19, while Support now comes in at 111.68.
Main Macro Events Today
  • FOMC Member Evans Speaks – Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans is due to speak in a television appearance on CNBC’s Squawk Box.
  • BOC Business Outlook Survey – The BoC’s outlook survey is expected to show an economy still moving along at a decent pace, but facing a number of challenges. This is a key report for the upcoming BoC announcement and MPR, as the Bank makes frequent references to the findings of the survey. A survey consistent with modest but still respectable growth, well contained inflation expectations and an unwinding in capacity pressures would line-up with our expectation for no change in rates later this month and through year-end.
  • Empire State index – It is estimated to jump to 9.0 in April from a 2-year low of 3.7 in March.

Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD is still trading below the 1.13 level, retracing nearly 23% of yesterday’s losses. The April low of 1.1184, then the March 7 bottom of 1.1177 will be in the cross hairs in the coming sessions if we face a move below 1.1220.

* GBPUSD has been stable at the upper 1.29 level, still unable to break through 1.30, fluctuating between the 1.3006 and 1.2960, which are Resistance and Support (PP) level respectively. Indicators are giving negative signals.

Main Macro Events Today

Events to Look Out for Next Week.


proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fanalysis.hotforex.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2019%2F02%2Fevents_1200x628-1-696x364.png&hash=177b0a51121c3cca1fdfb61d01f75078


The shortened week starts with just one piece of news on Monday and Tuesday from the US, while Wednesday will be in focus as the UK Parliament returns from its Easter recess. US Durable Goods are out on Thursday along with the BoJ rate decision.

Wednesday – 24 April 2019
  • CPI (AUD, GMT 01:30) – Australia’s inflation rate for Q1 is expected to have declined slightly to 1.7% y/y compared to 1.8% y/y in the final quarter of 2018.
  • IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – Business climate in the largest EU country is expected to have grown marginally to 99.9 compared to 99.6 last month.
  • Event of the week – BoC Interest Rate Decision (CAD, GMT 14:00) – At the BoC meeting, consensus expectations are that there should be no interest rate change. A sharper and more broadly based slowdown in the domestic economy, alongside a slowing in the global economy that has been more pronounced and widespread than anticipated saw the Bank state “the outlook continues to warrant a policy interest rate that is below its neutral range.”
Thursday – 25 April 2019
  • Event of the week – Interest Rate Decision (JPY, GMT 02:00) – Among the core central banks, BoJ is firmly poised to be “low for longest”. Hence, once again BoJ is expected to keep the interest rate as it is, given that it appears to have finally had an impact on the Japanese economy.
  • Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – March durable goods orders are expected to rise 0.2%, following a 1.6% February decline. Shipments expected to fall 1.5% in March, after a 0.2% reading in February.
  • Tokyo CPI and Production Data (JPY, GMT 23:30) – The country’s main leading indicator of inflation is expected to have remained at 1.1% y/y in April. Industrial Production is expected to have improved, growing by 0.6% m/m in March, compared to -1.1% m/m in February, while Retail Sales are expected to have increased by 1.2% y/y, compared to 0.6% in March.
Friday – 26 April 2019
  • US Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – The economy’s most important figure, Q1 GDP is expected to rise 2.6%, following a 2.2% pace in Q4 and 3.4% growth in Q3.

  • Reluctance to push stock valuations out further kept bond markets underpinned during the Asian session.
  • Chinese bond and stock markets continued to struggle, on the decreased expectations of future Chinese monetary stimulus since the weekend.

Technician’s Corner
  • EURUSD crossed below 20-day MA today, with the asset moving bearishly since Asia open. The underpinning of Euro could continue as the spread between the 10-year US and Germa government bond yields rising.
  • USDJPY has been stuck inside of 111.50 and 112.20 for more than a week now, struggling over the 112.00 level reportedly due to ongoing Japanese exporter backed selling, while finding support from what have mostly been risk-on conditions of late. Further USDJPY gains this week ahead of the BoJ meeting.
  • AUDUSD is in a 5-day decline. It crossed earlier into the lower Bollinger Bands area, indicating the increase of negative bias. Next Support levels at: 0.7107 and 0.7097.
Main Macro Events Today
  • New Home Sales –March new home sales are also expected to fall 7.0% to a 620k rate, following a 4.9% increase to 667k in February.

FX News Today
  • Australia’s bond as well as stock markets rallied after inflation came in lowerthan anticipated at 0.0% q/q, down from 0.5% in the previous period and versus median expectations of 0.1%.
  • Markets are convinced that the inflation miss will make a rate cut all but inevitable and 10-year yields plunged 10.5 bp, while the ASX jumped as much as 1.1% to a more than 11 year high, after already outperforming yesterday.
  • Elsewhere in Asia markets were under pressure, however, despite the strong close on Wall Street, where sentiment was boosted by upbeat earnings reports.
  • The USA500 and USA100 closed at record highs Tuesday
  • Twitter stock surged more than 15% on earnings beat, while the Coca-Cola share price is up 2% as Q1 earnings revenue was $8.02 billion, topping projections of $7.88 billion. The concerns that China may slow the pace of policy easing and stimulus measures continue to weigh on sentiment.
  • WTI oil softer today after surge to 6-mth high at $66.60 yesterday.
Charts of the Day

Technician’s Corner
  • USOIL softer at 66.00 hurdle after topping at a new nearly six-month high of $66.60. Overall, outlook holds to the upside as the asset is sloping within an uptrend, with small corrections to the downside.
  • USDJPY has continued to oscillate in a narrow range in the 111.75-112.00 area. The focus this week will be on fresh signs that corroborate the return-to-growth picture in major global economies. A continuation of this theme would be supportive of currencies that performer with higher beta characteristics, such as the Dollar bloc units, while currencies of the low-yielding safe haven type, such as the Yen, would be apt to underperform. USDJPY has Support at 111.54-111.60, levels which encompass the prevailing position of the 200-day moving average.
  • AUDUSD dove to 0.7026, just a breath above 3-year Support. It was driven by Aussie-specific losses following sub forecast CPI data out of Australia, which catalysed calls for the RBA to cut interest rates at its next policy review in May. A break of 0.7000 could open the way towards a December slip.
Main Macro Events Today
  • IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – Business climate in the largest EU country is expected to have grown marginally to 99.9 compared to 99.6 last month.
  • Event of the week – BoC Interest Rate Decision (CAD, GMT 14:00) – At the BoC meeting, consensus expectations are that there should be no interest rate change.

FX News Today
  • The BoJ left rates unchanged, but clarified its forward guidance, saying it will keep rates very low at least through spring of next year.
  • Also, they will expand the eligible collateral and also consider the introduction of an Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) lending facility, that would allow to temporarily lend ETFs that the Bank holds to market participants.
  • Japanese stock markets outperformed going into the announcement, but mainland China indices were under pressure.
  • Stock futures are moving higher in Europe and the US. The weaker than expected Ifo reading yesterday and a negative GDP print from South Korea overnight added to concerns about the outlook for world growth, which means rates will stay low for longer.
  • The Swedish Riksbank is widely expected to keep monetary policy on hold today.
  • The front end WTI future is trading at USD 65.91 per barrel.

Technician’s Corner
  • USDCHF is consolidating since last night within 1.01970-1.02190 range. However, the pair still holds above 1.0200, suggesting the continuation of the uptrend, as the pair remains well above the medium term Support at 1.0123 level (6 month Resistance converted to Support). Intraday, however, and as momentum indicators have been flattened, consolidation mode could possibly hold within the day. A cross below 1.0200 could retest yesterday’s lows.
  • AUDUSD within the strong 3-year Support, 0.7000-0.7020. It could react as a retracement level for the asset. However, the 3 black crows in the daily chart suggest that negative bias is increasing for AUDUSD.
Main Macro Events Today
  • Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – March durable goods orders are expected to rise 0.2%, following a 1.6% February decline. Shipments are expected to fall 1.5% in March, after a 0.2% reading in February.
  • NZ Trade Balance (NZD, GMT 22:45) – The trade report is expected to show an improvement in the surplus to NZ$300 mln in March from NZ$12 mln in February.
  • Tokyo CPI and Production Data (JPY, GMT 23:30) – The country’s main leading indicator of inflation is expected to have remained at 1.1% y/y in April. Industrial Production is expected to have improved, growing by 0.6% m/m in March, compared to -1.1% m/m in February, while Retail Sales are expected to have increased by 1.2% y/y, compared to 0.6% in March.

FX News Today
  • Asian stock markets drifted mostly lower as Japan heads for a long holiday week, and with earnings reports and data releases weighing in sentiment.
  • Japan production unexpectedly contracted, which after the correction in South Korea GDP yesterday, added to signs of weakness in the region and also highlighted the contrasting strength of the US economy, after robust durable goods orders yesterday.
  • President Xi Jinping said China won’t engage in currency depreciation that harms other nations.
  • YEN: has been underpinned by safe haven demand amid growth concerns in Asia and European and flagging stock markets.
  • The WTI future is trading slightly under USD 65 per barrel.
  • Earnings reports and US GDP numbers will provide the main focus for markets today, with the local calendar holding only the UK CBI industrial trends survey.

Technician’s Corner
  • USDJPY fell to 2-week lows of 111.38 before rebounding again between the Pivot Point of the day and the 20-day SMa, at 111.60-111.75 area. The pairing fell from the 2019 highs seen into the Wednesday close, and ahead of what was expected to be and was, a dovish BoJ announcement. USDJPY has tried, and failed to hold the 112 mark for several weeks now, and may be entering a phase of shaking out some long positions, before being able to make fresh gains. Overall, risk sentiment will be a determining factor going forward, though with the BoJ on hold, and a chance for further easing ahead, USDJPY can be expected to eventually head higher.
  • EURUSD bounced from its trend low of 1.1118 seen after the early round of US data, peaking at 1.1154. The USD generally turned lower through the morning session, appearing to be driven by a round of position squaring following earlier 2-year DXY highs. The Euro is expected to remain in sell-the-rally mode based on the fundamentals. The ECB economic bulletin signaled risks remain to the downside, underscoring the Bank will be “low for longer”. The next downside level remains at the 1.1100 level.
Main Macro Events Today
  • US Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – The economy’s most important figure, Q1 GDP, is expected to rise 2.6%, following a 2.2% pace in Q4 and 3.4% growth in Q3.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 29th April 2019.


proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fanalysis.hotforex.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2019%2F02%2Fevents_1200x628-1-1068x559.png&hash=84daad20c49b6783c88ea40e0adef049


We have a huge week ahead for markets, with two central banks policy meetings being in the spotlight, the BoE and the FOMC. Data-wise, we have some of the heaviest data, with Eurozone’s inflation numbers and GDP for the 1st Quarter of 2019, while the US Jobs report on Friday stands out as the event of the coming week.

Monday – 29 April 2019
  • Personal Consumption Expenditures (USD, GMT 12:30) – A low reading of the Fed’s preferred inflation measure is expected to be negative for the USD. PCE inflation is expected to stand at 0.2% reading for February with a 0.1% increase for the core, which matches the headline February CPI and core figures. The March reading is expected at 0.4% PCE chain price and a 0.1% in the core index, which also matches the March CPI reading.
Tuesday – 30 April 2019
  • Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Euro Area Preliminary GDP for the 1st Quarter is expected to have increased by 0.3% q/q, compared to 0.2% in the previous quarter, while it should remain flat at 1.1% y/y.
  • Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 12:00) – The German HICP inflation was confirmed at 1.4% y/y in March. In April however, it is expected to rise to 1.6% y/y.
  • Gross Domestic Product (CAD, GMT 12:30) – February GDP is expected to slow to 0.1%, compared to 0.3% last month, perhaps paving the way for an extended pause in rate hikes from the BoC lasting through mid-year.
  • CB Consumer Confidence Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – The Conference Board Index is expected to have declined from 126.0 in April to 124.1 in March.
  • Employment data (NZD, GMT 22:45) – Employment expected to keep growing in Q1, with the employment change rising to 0.3%q/q from 0.1%q/q.
Wednesday – 01 May 2019
  • ADP Employment Change (USD, GMT 12:15) – The April ADP Employment report should reveal a 175k gain for the month, after a 129k March gain.
  • ISM Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The Manufacturing PMI is expected to edge up to 55.0 in April from 55.3 in March.
  • Interest rate Decision and Conference (USD, GMT 18:00) – The FOMC is expected to leave the funds rates steady and to continue tapering the balance sheet runoff and will taper it in May, and end it in September. However, the US economy is expected to continue strengthen, something that will eventually call for another rate hike later in the year.
Thursday – 02 May 2019
  • Interest rate Decision and Conference (GBP, GMT 11:00) – BoE should remain on hold now until the Brexit D-day. If the transition runs smoothly we might see another 25 bp hike in May 2019.

Technician’s Corner
  • USDJPY fell again to test 111.50 and the S1 daily support at 111.48. USDJPY has tried, and failed to hold the 112 mark for several weeks now, and may be entering a phase of shaking out some long positions, before being able to make fresh gains. Overall, risk sentiment will be a determining factor going forward, though with the BoJ on hold, and a chance for further easing ahead, USDJPY can be expected to eventually head higher. 112.00 remains key resistance with the 200-day sma at 111.15.
  • EURUSD made its way to four-session highs of 1.1184 after the London close, up from early lows of 1.1146. The core PCE price data released earlier was cooler than expected, which helped the Euro post modest gains. While the pairing is well up on Friday’s trend low, further gains will likely be tentative into Today’s preliminary CPI figures from the major EU countries and trades at 111.80, currently. Given ongoing softness in EU data, and an ECB likely to be lower for longer, EURUSD remains pressured. The next downside level remains at the 1.1100 zone.
Main Macro Events Today
  • CAD Gross Domestic Product (CAD – 12:30) – The economy’s most important figure, m/m GDP, is expected to rise 0.3%
  • German CPI & EUR Flash GDP (EUR – 10:00) – German regional Inflation and Eurozone GDP are both expected to creep up a tick to 0.5% and 0.3% from 0.4% and 0.2% respectively, nothing in the numbers is expected to alert the ECB’s position on a sluggish EZ area.
  • Consumer Board Consumer Confidence (USD-15:00) – Expectations are for a bounce to 126.2 in April from 124.1 in March.

  • The Fed held rates steady, as expected but it dealt a blow to hopes of an “insurance” rate cut, while stressing patience and data dependence for the policy outlook.
  • Fed chair Powell indicated that low inflation might be transitory, and that global growth concerns had eased.
  • The USA30 was down -0.61% at the end, the USA500 lost -0.75%.
  • The ASX also dipped -0.74% after the nation’s biggest lender cut its dividend, but benchmarks in South Korea and Hong Kong ticked higher after reports from CNBC saying the US and China could announce a trade deal as soon as next Friday.
  • Oil prices fell to USD 63.39 overnight with US stockpiles weighing.
  • Gold futures rallied slightly after the FOMC announcement, as the USD fell, and yields headed lower, topping at $1,289.05 from $1,285.00. The contract later fell under $1,275.00, a one-week low.

Technician’s Corner
  • GBPUSD has Support at 1.3010, and Resistance at 1.3103, the latter levels encompassing the current situation of the 50-day moving average.
  • XAUUSD is trading below 1,272.00. after Fed chair Powell indicated that low inflation might be transitory, and that global growth concerns had eased. This saw the USD and Treasury yields head higher, both weighing on gold prices. Given the strong ADP number, the USD expected to remain underpinned into tomorrow’s release of the April US payrolls report.
  • EURUSD fell from a high of 1.1264 to a post-Powell low of 1.1187 before settling to a narrow range around 1.1200. Support holds at 1.1160-1.1185 and REsistastance is set at 1.1210-1.1215.
Main Macro Events Today
  • Interest rate Decision and Conference (GBP, GMT 11:00) – BoE should remain on hold now until the Brexit D-day. If the transition runs smoothly we might see another 25 bp hike in May 2019. The BoE has cautioned that the outlook will “depend significantly on the nature of EU withdrawal,” and noted that “uncertainty has intensified.” Thus, consensus forecasts suggest no change in the policy rate in this meeting and an unchanged 9-0 MPC voting.
  • US Q1 Nonfarm Productivity (USD, GMT 12:30) – Q1 productivity should post a 1.2% rate of growth, down from 1.9%, with unit labor costs rising 2.3% from 2.0%.

FX News Today
  • Stock markets mostly managed slight gains in quiet trade across Asia as Japan and mainland China remained closed for holidays and with investors positioning for the US jobs report.
  • BoE yesterday warned that in the central scenario of a smooth Brexit transition rates will have to go up more and faster than markets currently expect.
  • Overnight big drop in Australian Building approvals as the market corrected from a big rise in February.
  • Earnings also remained in focus with better than expected profits reported by HSBC helping to underpin shares in Hong Kong while a profit warning from Macquarie weighed on the ASX.
  • US stock futures are also moving higher after closing broadly lower on Thursday, following alongside Treasury yields as the market further digested yesterday’s signal from the Fed that a rate cut is not on the menu this year.
  • US-Sino trade talks also remain in focus and will add to volatility until a deal is finally on the table.

Technician’s Corner
  • EURUSD touched a low of 1.1165 into the London open. The pair dropped nearly 100 points from the highs, while the close yesterday under the 1.1200 mark suggests an increasing bearish bias for the Euro. Resistance now sits at 1.1200, or further up to 1.1220 (20 DMA), with Support at 1.1145, the April 29 low.
  • USOIL failed to recover yesterday. It remains down nearly 4%, bottoming so far at $61.03. Price weakness has come following the EIA reporting US inventories at near 2-year highs on Wednesday. Supplies are expected to increase further in the next month, as refinery maintenance curbs crude demand. Hence, the $60.50 level is now a key Support, representing both the 50- and 200-day MAs.
Main Macro Events Today
  • Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) –The Euro Area CPI is expected to come out at 1.6% y/y, above March’s outcome.

FX News Today
  • The RBNZ became the first central bank in the developed world to begin loosening policy this cycle. NZDUSD drifted to 6-month low at 0.6525.
  • German industrial production unexpectedly rose 0.5% m/m in March.
  • Given the correction in orders in Q1 and manufacturing PMI readings that show the manufacturing sector in recession, not just in Germany, the better than expected German production number for March doesn’t change the overall picture of weakness in a sector that clearly is pressured by the combination of geopolitical trade tensions and Brexit jitters, with no sign of improvement, despite today’s upside surprise in the headline reading.
  • The weaker than expected trade data out of China showed exports contracting and the trade surplus falling sharply added to ongoing concerns about developments in world trad.
  • Brexit fatigue has driven the pound lower vs most other currencies today
  • The front end WTI future is trading at USD 61.78 per barrel.

Technician’s Corner
  • EURUSD dropped to lows under 1.1170 after opening near 1.1200. The downward move came partly on safe-haven flows into the Dollar. Resistance comes at 1.1222, the 20-day MA, with support seen at 1.1135, Friday’s low.
  • USDJPY has fallen to 110.16 lows, just below Monday’s 1-month base of 110.29. The pairing has been weighed down by another risk-off session, related to the escalating US/China trade war. Wall Street is sharply lower, while Treasury yields are down again today as well. Further equity losses will likely see the Dollar head below yesterday’s low, which them brings the March 25 bottom of 109.70 into focus

  • While comments from US President Trump that an agreement is still possible initially saw stock markets rallying in Asia, caution has since made a comeback as investors react to headlines.
  • Japanese markets erased earlier gains and fell back into negative territory before stabilizing, and Topix and Nikkei are down -0.18% and 0.47% respectively as of 05:39GMT.
  • The front end WTI future meanwhile is trading at USD 61.92 per barrel.
  • German exports rebound in March – German trade data at the start of the session is showing another solid surplus in March and Q1, amid lingering fears that the focus of the US administration will once again turn to stagnant US-EU trade talks.

Technician’s Corner
  • USDJPY has been pushed down to 109.51. Another severe session of risk-off has weighed, with both Wall Street and Treasury yields getting hammered, keeping the pressure on the pairing. The pair managed to find some ground ahead of the EU session, and hence it is currently moving above PP level. However, as the overall outlook remains bearish, the February 4 low of 109.43 remains the next downside Support level, with a break there set to test the 109.00 level.
  • USDCAD rallied to 2-week highs of 1.3505, finding support from modest Oil price losses, and a generally firmer USD. Light buy-stops were noted on the break of 1.3500, though follow through was limited. USDCAD is rangebound between 1.3505 and 1.3430. April highs of 1.3516-1.3521 will need to be eclipsed to shift sentiment to a more bullish stance, otherwise overall consolidation holds.
  • USOIL has remained rangebound, sticking inside of Monday’s trading band, between $60.00 and $62.92. Concerns over the US/China trade war have kept a lid on prices this week, due to the prospects for demand destruction. On the supply side, Libya exports (near 1.0 mln bpd) are at risk due to civil war in the country threatening further supply disruption on top of the shutdown in production from Iran and Venezuela due to sanctions, and the ongoing OPEC+ production cuts. As a result, risk would appear to be to the upside for oil prices in the coming sessions, regardless of trade worries.
Main Macro Events Today
  • Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The economy’s most important figure, preliminary Q1 GDP is expected to be unchanged at 0.2% q/q.
  • Consumer Price Index and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – The headline CPI is estimated to rise 0.4% in April, after a similar reading in March. The overall CPI is expected to be up 2.1% y/y, from 1.9% in March. US Core CPI is estimated to rise 0.2% in April, following a 0.1% increase in March.

Markets could keep being restive as the trade war escalates, with concerns rising regarding a response from China. Meanwhile, the main focus should turn to the US as the week ahead includes a heavy slate of economic reports that will include important updates on consumption, inventories, factory output, sentiment, and the housing sector.

  • Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The preliminary German HICP inflation for April was higher than initially expected, at 2.1% y/y. However the final reading is expected to fall back to 1.7% y/y.

  • Retail Sales and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – We expect readings of 0.2% for April retail sales and 0.7% for ex-auto sales, following a 1.6% increase for the March headline and a 1.2% increase ex-autos. Unit vehicle sales slowed in April, and gasoline prices should continue to boost retail activity given an estimated 5.5% increase in the CPI for gasoline.

  • Employment Data (AUD, GMT 01:30) – Australian labour market data is expected to deteriorate, as the unemployment rate expected to increase to 5.1% in April from 5.0% last month, while employment is anticipated at 14K from 25.7K in March.
  • Housing Data (USD, GMT 12:30) – Both Building Permits and Housing Starts should jump in April, to a 1.215 mln pace and to 1.298 mln respectively, after a 0.3% and 0.2% decline seen in March. Overall, a stronger trajectory is expected for starts with a positive but slower pace for permits.
Friday – 17 May 2019
  • Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI for April is expected to slow down slightly, at 0.7% from 1% last month. However, the overall picture remains largely unchanged, with headline inflation remaining modest, but underlying inflation starting to firm. No reason then for the ECB to add additional stimulus measures to an already very accommodative policy stance, and “low for longer” remains the message not just from the ECB.
  • Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – The preliminary May Michigan sentiment reading is forecast at 97.7, up from the final April sentiment at 97.2.
