Charts of the Day


Technician’s Corner
  • EURUSD headed to 1-week lows of 1.1269 at mid-morning, and it is now traded higher at 1.1277 area. Trade this week has been centered on the 1.1300 mark, and further consolidation is expected ahead of next week’s FOMC policy announcement. There is not much of a chance for a rate move next week, but the FOMC is expected to make an important change in its statement, removing the word “patient” and likely replacing it with language similar to Powell’s comment from June 4 where he said the Fed will be “closely monitoring the implications of these developments” on trade and other matters. Until then, EURUSD can be expected to remain between its 50-day moving average at 1.1219, and its 200-day moving average at 1.1363.
  • USDJPY has been rangebound,topping at 108.53 before later ebbing back to 108.23 lows. Treasury yields however, continue under pressure following benign CPI on Wednesday, and soft import prices early on Thursday, putting some pressure on the Dollar. As a result, USDJPY has been nearly static. Further consolidation is expected into next Week’s Fed policy announcement.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 17th June 2019.




A policy-packed week, with monetary policy meetings in the world’s major economies (Fed, BoJ, BoE), and the potential for guidance regarding future interest rate actions, albeit cuts in the prevailing rates are expected. In the UK, the voting race begins for the next Prime Minister. On the data front, focus turns on inflation and Retail sales.
Monday – 17 June 2019

  • Inflation Report Hearings (GBP, GMT N/A) – The BoE Governor and several MPC members testify on inflation and the economic outlook before the Parliament Treasury Committee.
Tuesday – 18 June 2019

  • RBA Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30) – The RBA Minutes are expected to shed some light regarding an eventual rate hike (RBA is cautiously optimistic on growth and inflation).
  • Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Prices are expected to fall in May to just 0.3%m/m from 0.7%, whilst the overall inflation is expected to stand unchanged at 1.2%y/y.
  • ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for June is expected to rise slightly at -0.5 compared to -2.1 last month, however the negative reading means pessimists once again outnumber optimists and that escalation in US-Sino trade relations affects the outlook.
Wednesday – 19 June 2019
  • Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Prices are expected to move up in May, with overall inflation to increase at 2.2% y/y, compared to 2.1% y/y last month.
  • Consumer Price Index and Core (CAD, GMT 12:30) – May CPI is expected to run at a 2.0% y/y pace, matching the 2.0% clip in April and coming in just ahead of the 1.9% clip in March. Hence, the focus is on the “core” CPI figures.
  • Event of the week – Interest rate Decision and Conference (USD, GMT 18:00) –Fed easing expectations have plateaued (Fed funds futures now fully discounting a 25 bp rate cut by the July FOMC). Although, there is not much of a chance for a rate move next week, but the FOMC is anticipated to make an important change in its statement, removing the word “patient” and likely replacing it with language similar to Powell’s comment from June 4 where he said the Fed will be “closely monitoring the implications of these developments” on trade and other matters.
  • Gross Domestic Product (NZD, GMT 22:45) – The Q1 GDP is expected to grow at 0.7% compared to 0.6% last quarter, while the annualised rate should fall to 1.8% from 2.3%.
Thursday – 20 June 2019
  • Interest Rate Decision (JPY, GMT 02:00) –The BoJ should maintain its current extraordinary level of stimulus as they wait and see how global growth progresses this year. Hence policy is expected steady once again. Among the core central banks, the BoJ is firmly poised to be “low for longest”.
  • Interest rate Decision and Conference (GBP, GMT 11:00) – BoE should remain on hold now until the Brexit D-day, while the Brexit process has essentially been frozen in motion as the Conservatives go about the business of selecting a new party leader/prime minister. If the transition runs smoothly we could see another 25 bp hike quickly thereafter. The consensus forecasts suggest no change in the policy rate in this meeting and an unchanged 9-0 MPC voting.
Friday – 21 June 2019
  • Markit Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30) – The Preliminary Manufacturing PMIs in Germany and Eurozone are expected to increase in June, to 44.5 and 48.1 respectively.
  • Retail Sales and Core (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canadian sales are expected to slip 1% in April, with a 0.9% gain excluding autos, following a 1.1% figure for the March headline and a 1.7% increase ex-autos.
  • Markit Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – The Preliminary Manufacturing and Services PMIs are expected to increase in June, to 52.5 and 53.2 respectively...

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 19th June 2019.




FX News Today
  • Expectations that global central banks will add further stimulus to underpin the global economy and fresh hopes that global trade tensions will be resolved through talks after all underpinned stock markets during the Asian session.
  • US President Trump tweeted yesterday that he will meet China’s President Xi Jinping at the G-20 meeting, which helped to lift CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp 1.96% and 1.50% respectively.
  • Bond markets closed below highs yesterday and the gains are likely to erode further today as the focus shifts to the FOMC announcement.
  • GER30 and UK100 futures are slightly in the red with profit taking and renewed caution capping the room for further gains.
  • German PPI data at the start of the session came in lower than anticipated.
  • The WTI future benefited from fresh trade talk hopes and is trading marginally above the USD 54 per barrel mark.
Charts of the Day

Technician’s Corner
  • USDJPY has drifted moderately lower, to levels around 108.26. The dip reflects a pick up in demand for the Yen. Overall, directional impulse has been limited in forex markets with participants hunkered down ahead of the Fed policy announcement later on Wednesday. All eyes will be on the Fed, where there is risk of disappointment given the level of expectation for a strong dovish guidance. USDJPY is presently sitting near the midway of a choppy sideways range that’s been unfolding for nearly 3 weeks now. The range over this time has been 107.81108.80.Support comes in at 108.00-06.
  • USDCAD – The Canadian dollar, buoyed by a 4.5%-plus rally in Oil prices over the last day, has seen some moderate outperformance, which has taken USDCAD to a 3-session low at 1.3365. Underpinning Oil prices (aside from Mideast geopolitics) and equity markets have been hopes for a strongly dovish signal from the Fed today, yesterday’s dovish shift by the ECB chief, and news that President Trump will be meeting with President Xi at the upcoming G20, and that ministerial-level trade negotiations will be recommencing. For the pair, Support holds at 1.3354 and 1.3336, while Resistance is at 1.3390-1.3400.
Main Macro Events Today
  • Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Prices are expected to move up in May, with overall inflation to increase at 2.2% y/y, compared to 2.1% y/y last month.
  • Consumer Price Index and Core (CAD, GMT 12:30) – May CPI is expected to run at a 2.0% y/y pace, matching the 2.0% clip in April and coming in just ahead of the 1.9% clip in March. Hence, the focus is on the “core” CPI figures.
  • Event of the week – Interest rate Decision and Conference (USD, GMT 18:00) –Fed easing expectations have plateaued (Fed funds futures now fully discounting a 25 bp rate cut by the July FOMC). Although, there is not much of a chance for a rate move next week, but the FOMC is anticipated to make an important change in its statement, removing the word “patient” and likely replacing it with language similar to Powell’s comment from June 4 where he said the Fed will be “closely monitoring the implications of these developments” on trade and other matters.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 21st June 2019.




FX News Today
  • Thursday’s rally on Wall Street failed to boost Asian markets, which struggled as the impact of easing hopes following dovish comments from Fed, BoJ and ECB faded and trade angst returned.
  • US-Iran tensions also weighed on sentiment. The New York Times reported that US President Trump had actually approved military strikes after Iran shot down a US military drone, but pulled back from launching the attacks.
  • The Nikkei fell back -0.8%, although the Shanghai Comp still managed a gain of 0.5% amid lingering hopes of progress on US-Sino trade talks ahead of the leaders meeting at the sidelines of the G-20 meeting next week.
  • The USA500 managed a record high yesterday as markets position for rate cuts, but US futures are slightly in the red after a cautious session in Asia and GER30 futures are also down.
Charts of the Day

Technician’s Corner
  • USOIL advanced as much as 6%, up over $3, at June highs of $57.37. The downing of a US drone in the Persian Gulf got the rally rolling, with gains since coming following a Trump tweet, which just said “Iran made a very big mistake!”Following the tweet, prices moved up from near $56.20 to session highs. Immediate Support today hold at $56.00, while on the break of it 55.20 could be retested. On the flipside, Resistance $58.50-59.00 as stated in our post yesterday.
  • Cable has lost upside traction, with the pair having settled 25-35 pips below the highs. The BoE trimmed its Q2 GDP growth estimate to 0.0% q/q from 0.2% while stating that inflation remains well anchored. Cable earlier printed an 8-day high at 1.2727. The Pound has fared less well against the Euro, losing ground today against the common currency. The UK currency has been trading with a 10-15% trade-weighted Brexit discount since the vote to leave the EU in June 2016, and this is not expected to change. Cable has resistance at 1.2730 and Support at 1.2665.
Main Macro Events Today
  • Markit Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30) – The Preliminary Manufacturing PMIs in Germany and Eurozone are expected to increase in June, to 44.5 and 48.1 respectively.
  • Retail Sales and Core (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canadian sales are expected to slip 1% in April, with a 0.9% gain excluding autos, following a 1.1% figure for the March headline and a 1.7% increase ex-autos.
  • Markit Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – The Preliminary Manufacturing and Services PMIs are expected to increase in June, to 52.5 and 53.2 respectively.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 25th June 2019.




FX News Today
  • Treasury yields extended declines in a quiet and cautious Monday action.
  • The front end and belly of the curve mostly led the way on safe haven flows and as the FOMC’s more dovish than expected twist last Wednesday continued to support.
  • Equities were little changed after a narrow, range bound trade.
  • Tensions with Iran continued to drive cash into the safety of Treasuries, especially after President Trump announced he was placing more sanctions against its supreme leader and other top Iran officials has closed the path to a diplomatic solution (on the Ayatollah Khamenei, personally).
  • US futures are down -0.2-0.5% as traders await Powell’s speech today.
  • TheWTI future saw a high of $57.98 per barrel before pulling back slightly to now $57.45.
  • Wall Street was in a more wait-and-see mode on the geopolitical risks, and as global markets await the U.S.-China trade talks at the G20 later in the week.
Charts of the Day

Technician’s Corner
  • EURUSD printed fresh 3-month highs just over 1.1411, up from 1.1380 lows at the open. The Euro moved to session highs after the weaker Dallas Fed index. The pairing ran into sellers at 1.1400, seeing a pullback to 1.1386 lows. Prospects for a July Fed rate cut continue to weigh on the Dollar, though soft EU data are likely to push the ECB toward further stimulus over the next few months, largely offsetting potential Fed policy easing. The March 20 high of 1.1448 is the next resistance level.
  • Gold has printed five-plus year highs of $1,439.11, up from opening lows of $1,418.17. US/Iran tensions, along with potential for a Fed rate cut in July, and a weaker Dollar have all combined to put a bid under gold prices. The contract can be expected to remain in buy-the-dip mode for the foreseeable future, and continue to benefit from safe-haven flows on any fresh clashes in the Mideast.
Main Macro Events Today
  • NO OPEC Meeting in June –The dates of the separate OPEC ministerial meeting and of OPEC and its allies, known as OPEC+, have been changed to July 1-2, from June 25-26.
  • CB Consumer Confidence (USD, GMT 14:00) – The Consumer Confidence is expected to slip to 133.5 in June from 134.1 in May, versus a 16-month low of 121.7 as recently as January and an 18-year high of 137.9 in October. Overall, confidence measures remain historically high.
  • Fed’s Chair Powell speech (USD, GMT 17:00)

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 26th June 2019.




FX News Today
  • A less than dovish comment from Fed dove Bullard, with the Chairman Powell soothed a bit, and along with the usual trade uncertainty and US-Iran concerns, all combined with softer US data to take Wall Street and Treasury yields lower overnight.
  • Hence in Asia session, the rally on bond markets run out of steam and stocks struggled as optimism on an immediate rate cut from the Fed and a breakthrough in US-Sino trade talk fades.
  • Fed Chair Powell repeated the phrase the Fed is “closely monitoring“. He highlighted downside risks to the economy again, but didn’t go beyond last week’s guidance on rates.
  • Presidents Trump and Xi are likely to meet on Saturday, where they may agree to reopen trade talks.
  • Source stories meanwhile suggest that the US is willing to suspend the next round of China tariffs if trade talks resume, but Trump and Xi Jinping are not expected to agree on a detailed trade deal at the G-20 meeting.
  • Against that background stock markets struggled during the Asian session. Topix and Nikkei corrected -0.71% and -0.70% respectively
  • The RBNZ kept rates at record lows, but said further cuts may be needed.
  • The WTI future is trading at $59.10 per barrel amid US-Iran tensions.
  • German consumer confidence deteriorates. It fell back to 9.8 in the advance July reading. This is the lowest number since April 2017.
Charts of the Day

Technician’s Corner
  • EURCHF has found a footing into 1.10 area after coming under significant pressure last week, in the wake of ECB President Draghi’s eyebrow raising dovish shift, which has been the most notable of a growing chorus of dovish voices on the central bank’s governing council. Assuming the ECB remains on the path of further monetary policy easing ,the EURCHF is expected to retain a declining bias. The SNB’s -0.75% deposit rate and threat of tactical intervention hasn’t been sufficient to arrest recent appreciation of the Franc.
Main Macro Events Today

  • ECB’s Mersch speech (EUR, GMT 08:00)
  • BoE’s Governor Carney speech (GBP, GMT 09:00)
  • Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to be flat in May, after a -2.1% figure in April. Transportation orders should fall -0.5%. Boeing orders fell to just zero from a dismal 4 in April, with the hit from problems with the Boeing 737 Max that prompted buyers to delay new purchase commitments.

  • Also other bond markets in Asia, which were under pressure as stocks moved higher.
  • Markets are pinning their hopes on Saturday’s meeting between Trump and Xi Jinping at the side-lines of the G-20 meeting with reports that the U. is willing to hold off further tariffs for now helping to bolster confidence.
  • At the same time, President Trump threatened additional China tariffs if there is no agreement.
  • Still, without a firm and formal agreement in place risks of set backs remain high, especially as US.-Iran tensions and in Europe no-deal Brexit scenarios provide a risky backdrop.
  • European stock futures are moving higher in tandem with US futures after broad gains in Asia.
  • WTI crude surged to 4-week highs on API data showing big US inventory drop.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 28th June 2019.




FX News Today
  • Stock markets headed south during the Asian session.
  • Trade headlines continue to drive market sentiment and fresh doubts that there will be a breakthrough on the trade front at the highly anticipated meeting between US President Trump and China’s leader Xi Jinping saw investors heading for cover again.
  • Trump repeated threats of more tariffs and with global equities still more than 5% higher on the month, the risk of disappointment is capping markets for now.
  • If there are at least further negotiations and central banks remain on course to add more stimulus, it should be a constructive start to the second half of the year.
  • Topix and JP225 lost -0.25% and -0.50% respectively so far.
  • US futures are trading narrowly mixed, with American lenders gaining overnight after announcing share buybacks in the wake of annual Fed stress tests.
  • The WTI future is at $59.19 per barrel after seeing a high of $59.54 overnight.
  • In Europe, peripheral markets are outperforming and Eurozone spreads narrowing as a sharp drop in German import price inflation at the start of the session added to pressure on the ECB to implement further easing.
  • Eurozone stock futures are narrowly mixed.
Charts of the Day

Technician’s Corner

  • BTCUSD retreated further overnight, with the contract bottoming at $10,228.24, down from Wednesday highs of $13,821. This sell off has been measured as a 25% plunged. The sell off started on the failure of Coinbase website. Technically, the decline came after the asset reached the 61.8% retracement level from year’s high, while it is currently retesting the 50% Fib. level. Hence as the asset was overbought such a correction is technically acceptable. If the pair manages to sustain a move above the 38.2% Fib level along with a move above the midpoint from this week’s decline (i.e. 12000.00), could spread hopes for another attempt higher again.
  • USDJPY fell briefly under 107.70. Word that China would require preconditions for the talks weighed the pairing down, though moved off its lows as NEC chief Kudlow said there were no pre-conditions to the talks. Wall Street gains limited the pairing’s losses, though soft Treasury yields put a cap on USDJPY. Resistance is now at the 20-day moving average of 108.08, with Support at the overnight low of 107.55.
Main Macro Events Today

  • Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The Q1 GDP could be seen falling to 0.2%q/q from the preliminary reading seen in May at 0.5%q/q. The ONS stats office noted there was a “dramatic fall” in UK car production in April, which was pinned squarely on Brexit uncertainty.
  • Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The preliminary Euro Area CPI for June is anticipated to rise to 1.3% y/y from 1.2%y/y last month. The core inflation is seen at 1.0% y/y from 0.8% y/y.
  • US Personal Spending (USD, GMT 12:30) – A 0.3% gain is seen in personal income in May after a 0.5% increase in April, alongside a 0.3% rise in May consumption.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 2nd July 2019.




FX News Today

* Australia’s 10-year rate fell -2.7 bp, as the RBA slashed the cash rate by 25 bps to a record low of 1.00%, citing the slowdown in global trade.

* US President Trump may have signalled that talks with China have already restarted, but the US reportedly also expanded a list of European products that may get hit with tariffs, which highlights that the restart of US-Sino trade talks doesn’t mark the end of global trade tensions.

* Stock markets already turned cautious again in Asian trade.

* US futures are marginally higher and the WTI future is trading at $59.13 per barrel.

* European stock futures are moving higher in tandem with US futures after a lacklustre session in Asia.

* Meanwhile weaker than expected German retail sales at the start of the session confirmed that the weakness in the manufacturing sector is spreading to the rest of the economy, which will keep the ECB on course for further easing.

* EU leaders will meet again to resume discussion on the next president of the European Commission and other top posts that will become vacant this year, including the ECB presidency.

Charts of the Day



Technician’s Corner

* AUDUSD jumped to 0.6985 at the Asia session amid the RBA announcement, after the decline seen yesterday on Dollar strength. The asset manage to held above 20- and 50-day SMA. A trade above 0.7000 which is the midpoint on yesterday’s decline could suggest further upside path for AUDUSD. Support comes at 2-day low, at 0.6955. A shift back to the latter could open the doors towards June’s values.

* EURUSD faded to 7-session lows of 1.1275, down from the 1.1360 highs seen ahead of the NY open. Weaker European PMI data, along with more dovish ECBspeak, saw sentiment toward the Euro soured some. For the USD side of the equation, markets have toned down their Fed rate cut expectations, leaving the odds of a 50 bp cut in July a long shot. As a result, the Dollar has posted gains, helped by the trade truce agreed over the weekend. There are still likely to be further trade fireworks going forward, but as long as the US economy continues to outperform rivals, USD downside should be limited going forward.20-day moving average of 108.08, with Support at the overnight low of 107.55.

Main Macro Events Today

* Construction PMI (GBP, GMT 09:30) –The June construction PMI is seen rebounding to 49.4 after 48.6 in May.

* Manufacturing PMI (CAD, GMT 14:00) – The Markit Manufacturing PMI in the Canada is expected to come out at about 49.0 in June,slightly below the 49.1 in May.

* BoE’s Governor Carney speech (GBP, GMT 14:05)

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 3rd July 2019.




FX News Today
  • Stock market sentiment turned cautious again during the Asian session.
  • EU leaders formally nominate IMF head Lagarde to head the ECB and replace Mario Draghi. Lagarde, is clearly a much more dovish option in comparison to Weidmann, who has been the leader of the hawks on the council.
  • Lagarde’s nomination was enough for investors to price in even more easing and asset purchases, despite the fact that a Bloomberg report suggested that the majority of policy makers are not ready to make a more in July and prefer to wait for the updated forecasts in September. EGB futures have extended gains on the news.
  • BoE’s Carney flags downside risks from trade. The BoE head repeated that the central bank sees the need for rate hikes if Brexit is smooth, he added that markets are giving more weight to a no deal scenario and that the BoE will reassess Brexit and trade risks at the August meeting.
  • The US’ threat of additional tariffs on European goods highlighted that geopolitical trade tensions are far from over.
  • The private China services PMI slowed to a four month low in June, adding to signs that much of the damage has already been done.
  • Nikkei and Hang Seng lost -0.72% and -0.26% respectively and the Shanghai Comp is down -0.86%.
  • President Trump plans to nominate Christopher Waller and Judy Shelton to the Fed Board of Governors to fill the two vacancies.
  • GER30 and UK100 futures are currently posting slight gains, underpinned also by easing hopes, while U.S. futures are in the red, after a largely weaker close in Asia.
Charts of the Day

Technician’s Corner
  • USDJPY has come under some pressure, dropping to 107.52. Modest risk-off conditions have weighed, while the sentiment boost seen after the US/China trade truce appears to have worn off, leaving the reality that it may well be quite some time before agreements are made, and tariffs come off. Until some progress is made, it appears USDJPY upside will be limited.
  • XAUUSD rallied to 1437.68 high,, underpinned by easing hopes and by geopolitical trade tensions which clearly are far from over. AMid EU open Gold reversed slightly lower to 1421 area and it is currently consolidating above it. Support holds at 1421, 1413 and 1407.55. Resistance levels come at 1428.55, 1431.80 and 1440.
Main Macro Events Today

  • United States – Independence Day – Early close at 13:00 GMT
  • Services PMI (GBP, GMT 08:30) –The June Services PMI is seen stable at 51 m/m.
  • Trade Balance (USD, GMT 12:30) – It is expected to widen in May to -$54.6 bln (median -$53.5 bln) from -$50.8 bln in April.
  • ADP Employment Change (USD, GMT 13:15) – Employment change is seen spiking to 150k in the number of employed people in June, compared to the weak 27k reading seen last month.
  • ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM-NMI index is expected to fall to 56.0 in June from 56.9 in May and a 19-month low of 56.1 in March, versus a 13-year high of 60.8 in September.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 4th July 2019.




FX News Today
  • 10-year Treasury yields closed at 1.950% and the Dow lifted to record highs ahead of today’s holiday in the US, as investors priced in deep central bank easing.
  • In Europe, Bund yields are holding steady around -0.39% in opening trade, and Italian yields in particular continue to slide, as investors buy into hopes that under Lagarde’s helm the ECB will take a more benign view on deficit spending and implement further easing to support struggling economies.
  • US President Trump once again accused China and Eurozone of currency manipulation and stock markets turned more cautious during the Asian session amid lingering trade concerns and with trading volumes below average as investors wait for the key US jobs report on Friday.
  • European stock futures are slightly higher, while US futures are marginally in the red.
  • The WTI future is trading at $56.85 per barrel.
Charts of the Day

Technician’s Corner
  • USDJPY recovered from post-ADP lows of 107.58, bouncing to 107.82 highs, after failing to test the overnight 6-session low of 107.54. Soft Treasury yields (10-year at 1.95%) have limited upside for the pairing, though another Wall Street rally should contain losses. Activity is likely to wind down early today, as many make their way out the door on today’s Independence Day holiday.
  • AUDUSD: The Australian Dollar has outperformed for a second day, presently near highs with a 0.6% gain versus the US buck and a 0.8% advance against the pound, which is the weakest of the main currencies on the day so far. AUD-USD posted a 57-day at 0.7047, extending gains seen from yesterday’s at 0.6956, seen in the immediate wake of the RBA’s rate cut. Markets had mostly priced-in the move, with Aussie money markets having factored in 85% odds for it. Given this, along with some cautiously upbeat remarks on the outlook in RBA Governor Lowe’s statement, and the thawing in US-China tensions, the scene was set for a rally in the Australian Dollar. AUDUSD has support at 0.7017-20.
Main Macro Events Today

  • United States – Independence Day
  • Retail Sales (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Retail Sales are expected to climb to 1.6% for May, after the 1.5% last month.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 9th July 2019.




  • Stock markets remain cautious ahead of Powell’s testimony, after jobs data reduced hopes of big rate cuts from the Fed.
  • Tech stocks were hit by a slump in Apple Inc. after a broker downgrade.
  • Topix and Nikkei pared early gains in the course of the session and are currently down -0.22% and up 0.06% respectively.
  • Central bank expectations remain a major force for stock market moves, amid lingering geopolitical trade tensions, which are far from over despite the restart of US-Sino talks.
  • European futures as well as US futures are down -0.3-0.4% with the Nasdaq underperforming.
  • In Europe, BTPs are currently outperforming, but Greek bonds, which rallied yesterday on the election result, are paring some of the gains.
  • Released overnight, UK BRC retail sales came in weaker than expected and fell back -1.6% m/m in the same store measure. Still to come are Italian retail sales numbers and an I/L auction in Germany.
  • Oil prices meanwhile continue to hold in the USD 57-58 range, with the WTI future currently trading at USD 57.50.
Charts of the Day


Technician’s Corner
  • GBPUSD retests again the 6-month low into EU open, at 1.2483. EURGBP remained buoyant, but markets still lacked the muster for a test of the recent six-month high at 0.8992. A 0.3% m/m contraction in the Halifax measure of UK house prices (released Friday) was the latest in a series of data disappointments out of the UK. As for Brexit, the news flow has remains quiet in terms of substantive developments. That will change as soon as the new prime minister, most likely no-deal-Brexit-if-necessary Boris Johnson, takes up the reigns (which will be later in the month). Cable has resistance at 1.2510-20. Next Support at 1.2420.
  • Silver: Despite the decline seen the last 2 days, Silver manage to be held above the 20- and 50-week SMA, sustaining more than 50% of the gains seen in June. Breaching the uptrend Support at 14.90 and also the small bounce up to 15.10 suggest that the corrective pressure is growing again. The RSI is sloping to the upside again but still remains below 50 in the daily chart, while MACD remains within the positive area following a bear cross last week. The key level at $15.10 is now a Resistance whilst traction below the $14.90 would open $14.60 as the next Support. A break above Resistance couls retest the $15.25-$15.35 area.
Main Macro Events Today

  • Fed Chair Powell Speech on Boston (USD, GMT 12:45)

  • The S&P 500 briefly topped the 3000 mark for the first time, but the index didn’t manage to hold these levels as stocks generally came off highs.

Charts of the Day

Technician’s Corner
  • FX Update: The USD posted fresh lows during the pre-Europe session in Asia as markets continued to readjust Fed easing expectations in the wake of Chairman Powell’s testimony yesterday, which was consistent with a 25 bp rate cut at the end of this month with an addendum stipulating that the Fed has the tools needed and could use them “aggressively” if necessary. The narrow trade-weighted USD index (DXY) has declined by about 0.6% over the last day, earlier printing a six-day low at 96.90, while EURUSD rose to a six-day high at 1.1280 and USDJPY posted a six-day low at 107.86. The US currency saw a similar magnitude of decline against other currencies. In the mix has been an unexpected upward revision to June German HICP, to 1.5% y/y from 1.3% y/y, while news that Iran tried to intercept a British tanker in the Strait of Hormuz (London claiming that its navel ship HMS Montrose saw off three Iranian vessels with “verbal warnings”) saw front-month WTI crude prices spike above $60.0, the first time above this level since late May.
Main Macro Events Today

  • Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The German HICP inflation is expected to hold at 1.3% y/y for June.
  • Consumer Price Index and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – May’s CPI has been estimated at a -0.1% drop for headline PPI in June, and a 0.2% rise in the core index.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 15th June 2019.




Trade warring and slowing global growth have set the scene for a possible earnings recession, which could catalyze a risk-off phase in global markets. Therefore next week’s inflation data out of some of the major economies, Australia’s employment report and China’s 2Q19 GDP report could be the highlights in the coming week. Another focus is the upcoming Q2 corporate earnings season, which will get into gear next week with “show and tells” from the banking sector.
Monday – 15 July 2019


  • China Gross Domestic Product (CNY, GMT 02:00)- Chinese GDP is projected to see additional moderation to a 6.2% y/y pace in Q2, from the 6.4% y/y growth rate in Q1. The economy has grown at a 6.2% pace so far in 2019, while it was at a 6.6% pace for all of 2018, leaving the slowest growth rate since the 3.9% clip in 1990. It grew 6.8% in 2017.
  • Consumer Price Index (NZD, GMT 22:45) – New Zealand inflation is expected to rise by 1.7% y/y in Q2, edging higher than the 1.5% observed in Q1.
Tuesday – 16 July 2019

  • Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30) – The RBA has already cut rates to record lows and comments from the central bank governor yesterday didn’t sound as though the bank was readying further easing at the moment. Minutes are expected to shed further light regarding future easing stance.
  • Average Earnings (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Average Earnings excluding bonus for May expected to slightly increase at 3.2% from 3.1% last month.
  • ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for July is expected to be released at -19.0 compared to -21.1 last month.
  • Retail Sales and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – 0.2% June retail sales gains are expected for both with and without autos, following 0.5% May gains for both measures. Unit vehicle sales ticked down to a 17.3 mln pace in June from an upwardly-revised 17.4 mln clip in May, and gasoline prices should provide a drag on retail activity given an estimated -3.5% figure for the CPI for gasoline. Real consumer spending is expected to grow at a 3.9% rate in Q2, following the 0.9% Q1 clip.
Wednesday – 17 July 2019

  • Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – May CPI came in on the nose at 2.0% y/y, ebbing from 2.1% y/y in April and marking a return to the upper bound of the BoE’s target. Next week’s reading for June is expected to remain unchanged. The same stands for core CPI.
  • Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI for June is expected to hold steady at 0.3% m/m, with the headline inflation at 1.2% y/y unchanged from the previous month. Still, as the weakness in manufacturing is now starting to reach the labour market, this means the prospect that underlying inflation pressures will build up soon look slim. This will keep the ECB on course for additional easing measures, unless there are major breakthroughs on the US-Sino trade and the Brexit front.
  • Consumer Price Index and Core (CAD, GMT 12:30) – CPI is expected to decline at a 2.1% y/y pace in June.
  • Housing Data (USD, GMT 12:30) – Housing starts should slow to a 1.260 mln pace in June, after a dip to 1.269 mln in May. Permits are expected to improve to 1.300 mln in June, after rising to 1.299 mln in May. Overall, we see a stronger trajectory for starts with a positive but slower pace for permits, as starts play catch-up with the higher permits trajectory.
Thursday – 18 July 2019

  • Employment Data (AUD, GMT 00:30) – Australian labour market data is expected to deteriorate, as the employment is anticipated at 10K from 42.3K in May.
Friday – 19 July 2019

  • Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – The main US consumer confidence index is expected to ease to 93.0 in March, compared to 93.8 in February.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 16th July 2019.




FX News Today
  • Treasury yields steadied during the Asian session, with bonds erasing overnight gains and the 10-year yield now up 0.3 bp at 2.092%. JGB yields also backed up from lows and are down -0.1 bp at -0.129%, after returning from holiday, while yields declined in Australia and New Zealand after the minutes of the last RBA meeting showed the bank remains ready to adjust policy if needed.
  • Stock markets meanwhile struggled in very light volumes as markets hold back ahead of key US data and earnings reports this week.
  • On trade talks US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin said he and Trade-Representative Lighthizer may travel to Beijing if talks by phone this week are productive.
  • The WTI future is trading below $60 per barrel and U.S. futures are posting marginal gains.
  • In Europe, the GER30 future is currently slightly higher as are US futures, which UK100 futures are in the red, amid ongoing Brexit jitters as Boris Johnson, poised to succeed as PM next week, puts no-deal options firmly back on the table.
  • Last week’s round of Brexit negotiators was reportedly one of the most difficult encounters of the last 3 years.
  • Meanwhile JP Morgan, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and Taiwan Semiconductor are among the companies reporting results this weeks.
Charts of the Day


Technician’s Corner
  • EURUSD has been held between its 20-day Moving Average of 1.1295 and its 50-day Moving Average at 1.1242 since Friday. A 25 basis point Fed rate cut at the end of the month has been priced into EURUSD, and focus now may shift to the ECB, where further stimulus could be in the cards at its next meeting on July 25, keeping EURUSD capped for the time being.
  • USDJPY broke earlier today its 20-day Moving Average at 107.95, after printing 8-session high from 107.80 during the overnight Asian session. The mixed risk backdrop has limited the pairing’s gains since last week, as Wall Street trades on either side of flat, and Treasury yields remain pressured. The July 5 low of 107.76 remains a floor for the asset, while next Resistance stands at 108.20 and 108.50
Main Macro Events Today
  • Average Earnings (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Average Earnings excluding bonus for May expected to slightly increase at 3.2% from 3.1% last month.
  • ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for July is expected to be released at -19.0 compared to -21.1 last month.
  • Retail Sales and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – 0.2% June retail sales gains are expected for both with and without autos, following 0.5% May gains for both measures. Unit vehicle sales ticked down to a 17.3 mln pace in June from an upwardly-revised 17.4 mln clip in May, and gasoline prices should provide a drag on retail activity given an estimated -3.5% figure for the CPI for gasoline. Real consumer spending is expected to grow at a 3.9% rate in Q2, following the 0.9% Q1 clip.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd June 2019.




No deal Brexit risks will continue to unsettle markets next week as the two candidates hardened their rhetoric in end stages of the party elections. The ECB however will stand out as the event of the week,with Brexit uncertainty an important part of the overall outlook. Have a look at the most important events of the coming days in our usual weekly publication.
Tuesday – 23 July 2019


  • The announcement of the next Prime Minister of the UK – Event of the week – Original Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson remains the front runner in the race and is widely expected to be confirmed as the new Prime Minister next Tuesday.
  • Housing Data (USD, GMT 14:00) – A steady rate is anticipated for existing home sales in June at the firm 5.340 mln pace seen in May. The median sales price is estimated to ease to $275,000, for a y/y gain of 0.4%, down from 4.8% in May. In Q1, we saw an average sales pace of 5.207 mln. In Q2, a better 5.297 mln pace is expected.
Wednesday – 24 July 2019

  • Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30) – Preliminary Composite PMIs for Eurozone and Germany are expected to fall in July, to 51.8 and 52.5 respectively, while the Manufacturing PMIs are forecasted at 48.0 and 45.4 respectively.
  • Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing and Services PMIs are expected to decline in July, to 50.4 from 50.6 and 51.0 from 51.5 respectively.
Thursday – 25 July 2019

  • German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – German IFO business confidence is expected to slip to 96.7, after it held steady the past 2 months around the 97 barrier.
  • Event of the week – Interest rate Decision and Conference (EUR, GMT 11:45) –The ECB is meeting on July 25, – shortly after the confirmation of the new PM in London and ahead of the Fed, which is widely expected to cut rates again at the end of the month. On balance, markets see more merit in keeping official rates unchanged next week, while moving to an official easing bias and promising that rates will be at “current or lower” levels well into next year.
  • ECB Monetary Policy Statement (EUR, GMT 12:30) -The July meeting will clearly be a “live” one with doves and hawks battling it out over when to deliver the now widely expected easing measures. It is expected that the majority will see more merit in keeping policy settings unchanged, but change the guidance to introduce a clear easing bias.
  • Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to rise 1.0% in June, after a -1.3% figure in May. Transportation orders should rise 2.7%. Boeing orders rose to only 9 from just zero in May, with weakness due to the hit from problems with the Boeing 737 Max that prompted buyers to delay new purchase commitments. Vehicle assemblies should ease to 11.1 mln from an 11.3 mln pace in May. Durable shipments are expected to rise 0.5%, and inventories should rise 0.6%. The I/S ratio is expected to hold steady at 1.67 since April.
Friday – 26 July 2019

  • Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – Gross Domestic Product is expected to grow 1.8% in Q2, with a sturdy 2.4% growth rate for final sales thanks to solid growth rates of 3.9% for personal consumption and 4.3% for government purchases, alongside a big $27 bln unwind of the Q1 inventory pop.
