Events to Look Out For Next Week 4th November 2019.




The week starts light again, with Eurozone Manufacturing PMI and the new ECB president Lagarde speech on Monday, followed by RBA rate statement and New Zealand’s jobs report on Tuesday. Bank of England dominates the week as the highly uncertain election campaign begun.

Monday – 04 November 2019
  • Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 08:55) – The German October Manufacturing PMI held steady at 41.9, with Germany’s manufacturing sector still firmly in recession. This picture is likely to be seen confirmed in the final readings for October.
Tuesday – 05 November 2019
  • RBA Interest Rate Decision (AUD, GMT 03:30) – The RBA minutes from the September policy meeting, showed that the central bank remains disposed to further easing. However in the October minutes, Governor Lowe suggested that the Bank is not in a hurry to lower rates asap.
  • ISM Non – Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 15:00) – The ISM-NMI index is expected to rise to 54.0 in October from 52.6 in September and a prior 19-month low of 56.1 in March, versus a 13-year high of 60.8 in September of last year.
  • Labour Market Data (NZD, GMT 21:45) – The Final reading for Q3 employment change is expected to show further negative labor reports. the unemployment rate is anticipated at 4.0% from 3.9%, while participation rate is seen rising at 70.9%.
Wednesday – 06 November 2019
  • Retail Sales (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Retail sales moved up 0.3% m/m in August, a partial rebound from the -0.5% m/m decline in the previous month. However, in September the latest slowdown in labour market could keep overall consumption underpinned in the third quarter. The September Retail sales are seen at 0.1% m/m.
Thursday- 07 November 2019
  • Event of the week – BoE Interest Rate Decision and MPC Vote (GBP, GMT 12:00) – The BoE at the last meeting already indicated that even if uncertainty persists it may need to act to prop up the economy and the upcoming November meeting will bring the BoE’s quarterly updates on growth and inflation. It will come amid a still muddy picture on the Brexit front and just ahead of a general election, so central bankers may be weary of being accused of interfering in the political process if they lean too much out of the window on the Brexit front.
Friday – 08 November 2019
  • Labour Market Data (CAD, GMT 13:30) – Total employment grew 53.7k in September after the 81.1k surge in August, leaving two months of robust jobs growth that came in well above expectations. The unemployment rate fell to 5.5% in September from 5.7% in August. For October, the unemployment rate is expected to rise at 5.7% while participation rate should remain unchanged.
  • Michigan Sentiment (USD, GMT 15:00) – The preliminary US consumer sentiment for November is forecast at 94.7, 0.8 points below the final in October.

FX Action | 05th November 2019.




EUR: Limited rally?

Asset:EURUSD 1.1129
Weekly bias: Bearish
Week’s Range: 1.1097 – 1.1200

* A no-deal Brexit avoided theme has given both the Euro and Pound a lift lately, though the possibility for a no-deal further down the track remains on the cards, while the protracted political uncertainty in the UK is having a deleterious economic on both sides of the Channel. The ECB is also taking a dovish tilt with Christine Lagarde having taken up the reins. On the dollar side of the balance, with regard to EURUSD, markets are anticipating US non-manufacturing survey data for October, due later today, to rebound from the 3-year low seen in September. This would follow the strong US October jobs report (despite the General Motors strike) and the backdrop of the Fed’s three precautionary rate cuts.

* EURUSD printed a 6-day low at 1.1112 in what is now the pair’s fourth day trading on a 1.11 handle. The pair has been losing upside momentum after rallying out of sub-1.0900 levels in early October. The Euro has seen signs of weakness against other currencies, although EURJPY has been buoyed by Yen trade yesterday.Against a sputtering Eurozone economy and a dovish ECB, the upside potential of EURUSD should be kept in check. In the long-term pair still classified as being amid a down trend that’s been unfolding since early 2018, from levels around 1.2500. The trend has coincided with the 10-year Bund yield dropping from levels over 0.70% to the prevailing -0.325 % yield (a -0.739% low was seen in early September).



JPY: Looking northwards despite risk-on mode
Asset: USDJPY 108.80
Weekly bias: Bullish
Week’s Range: 107.76 – 109.27

* The Yen continued on a softening tack into the EUropean session amid a backdrop of continued risk-on positioning in global markets, which have seen sovereign bonds come under pressure and stock markets rally. Maintaining investor spirits were the PBoC cutting its 1-year medium-term lending facility (MLF) rate by 5 bps for the first time since early 2016, and an FT report that the Trump administration was considering removing some tariffs on Chinese goods, which is something that Reuters sources have been saying Beijing has been pushing for.

* USDJPY rose to a 5-day high at 108.88. EURJPY and AUDJPY also made respective 5-day peaks, at 121.12 and 75.18, and other Yen crosses gained. AUDJPY lifted by over 0.5%, drawing back in on the 3-month high seen last week at 75.29. Positive sentiment for USDJPY holds in the medium picture, as the asset holds above 20- and 50-Day SMA, with momentum indicators positively configured. Hence the intraday decline remains a temporary correction on the 3-day rally.



GBP: Struggling to hold above 1.2900
Asset: GBPUSD 1.2904
Weekly bias: Neutral
Week’s Range: 1.2800-1.2980

* A no-deal Brexit avoided theme has given Pound a lift lately, though the possibility for a no-deal further down the track remains on the cards, while the protracted political uncertainty in the UK is having a deleterious economic on both sides of the Channel.

* The Pound stuck at 1.2900 (mid 3-week range) after making up the fourth week out of the last five where a higher high has been set. From month-ago levels, the Pound is the strongest performer out of the main currencies, up 5% against the Dollar and by over 6% versus the Euro, reflecting an unwinding in the pound’s Brexit discount, with a Halloween no-deal Brexit scenario having been avoided.



CAD: Remains heavy
Spot: USDCAD 1.3124
Weekly bias: Bearish
Week’s Range: 1.3075 – 1.3200

* USDCAD has remained heavy, today matching the 6-day low that was seen yesterday at 1.3130, with the Canadian dollar being floated by a backdrop of coursing risk appetite in global markets, similar to the other Dollar bloc currencies, which has offset the jump in US yields following the strong US jobs data on Friday.

* Taking a step back, USDCAD is near to the midpoint of the range that’s been seen over the last 4-plus years.



AUD: Remains on bid
Asset: AUDUSD 0.6917
Weekly bias: Neutral to Bullish
Week’s Range: 0.6770- 0.6945

* AUDJPY is the biggest gainer on the day so far, showing a rise of 0.9% at prevailing levels. The cross has printed a three-week high at 75.40. AUDUSD has concurrently rallied by over 0.6%, coming within of the three-week peak that was seen last week, at 0.6929.

*The Aussie Dollar is also showing outperformance form month-ago levels, with only sterling having been stronger out of the main currencies over this period. The currency has a relatively high beta characteristic, and is widely seen as a liquid currency proxy of China, which accounts for over a third of the total demand for Australian commodity exports, and has therefore acted in a true to form manner amid the recent upward scaling in global stock markets. The main three US indices hit new record peaks yesterday, while Asian and European markets have rallied to fresh major-trend highs today.

USD still in the driving seat 6th November 2019.





USDJPY, H1
The Dollar has been consolidating gains seen yesterday, which had been driven by more strong October data (non-manufacturing ISM, which backed up last week’s surprisingly solid employment report) and hopes a partial trade deal with China will be struck. The risk-on vibe that was coursing through global markets in the wake of last Friday’s US payrolls data has come off the boil, with the valuations of many major equity indices looking rich amid a degree of circumspection creeping in with regard to whether the 13th round of trade talks between the US and China will produce a deal. The key USA500 actually closed in negative territory yesterday although it is currently trading up and testing the daily pivot point at 3078.



Against this backdrop, the narrow trade-weighted USDIndex (DXY) has ebbed back by a fractional 0.1% after rallying by about 1% over the previous two days. EURUSD has settled just above the three-week low seen yesterday at 1.1063. Cable has lodged in the upper 1.2800s after failing to sustain gains above 1.2900. USDJPY is also softer, aided by a degree of Yen outperformance, which has seen EURJPY, AUDJPY and other yen crosses ebb back somewhat. USDJPY fell back below 109.0 after posting a one-week high yesterday at 109.25. The Australian Dollar and other dollar bloc currencies have also traded at softer levels after outperforming in recent sessions.

BoE seen on hold – Not interfering with politics 7th November 2019.




The BoE’s Monetary Policy Committee announces the outcome of this week’s meeting today. The strong consensus is for no change, which would leave the repo rate at 0.75% and QE totals unchanged, though there is a chance that we’ll see dovish dissent amid the ranks of the nine-member committee, with members Saunders and Vlieghe having recently voiced concern about the damage that Brexit uncertainty is doing.

Most members look be preferring to remain on hold into the December general election. Both of the principal parties in the UK, the Conservatives and Labour, are pledging fiscal spending if they are elected, which won’t have gone unnoticed at the MPC.

The BoE will also release its quarterly Inflation Report, which isn’t expected to show much change to existing projections, although it is clear that the prolonged uncertainty is increasingly damaging the outlook and has already led to a sharp decline in investment. London markets are pricing in about 45% odds for a 25 bps rate cut by next May, and an 85% chance for such a move by the end of 2020.

Meanwhile….UK’s December Election on December 12!

The divided parliament finally threw in the towel and the UK is now heading for a general election on December 12 to try and break the deadlock on the Brexit front. It is a risky move for Johnson, who so far has been rejecting the advances of the Brexit party, which is campaigning for a no-deal scenario and if Johnson continues to hold out there is the risk that not just the anti-Brexit, but also the pro-Brexit vote will be split.

That means another split parliament cannot be ruled out and if the Brexit party were to gain a sizeable number of seats it would increase the pressure on Johnson to go ahead with a no-deal scenario.

In any case, Johnson has pledged to stick to the current time table for the transition period, which will give him just a year to get a trade deal with the EU wrapped up. Even if Johnson’s ambitions on that front are not as high as May’s this seems an impossibly short time to get a meaningful arrangement wrapped up. In any case, Johnson’s deal looks set to involve nothing like the “friction less” trade that U.K. manufacturers will be looking for and border checks will likely still disrupt supply chains across Europe.

And GBP Waiting for Brexit resolution

From month-ago levels, the Pound is the strongest performer out of the main currencies, up 5% against the Dollar and by over 6% versus the Euro. The gains reflect an unwinding in the Pound’s Brexit discount, with a Halloween no-deal Brexit scenario having been avoided.

The broad trade-weighted measure of the Pound is expected to retain at about a 8-9% discount relative to levels prevailing ahead of the July 2015 Brexit vote, which has been pared back from lows of 15%-plus. As the UK now finds itself with Brexit delayed for a second time and once again in a quagmire of political uncertainty, no significant unwinding is anticipating for Sterling’s Brexit discount as all options remain open with regard to how Brexit is resolved — ranging from no deal to Brexit cancelled, depending on the results of the December-12 general election and any referendum after the election.

FX Action | 08th November 2019.




EUR: Retests 50-day SMA

Asset:EURUSD 1.1048
Daily bias: Ranging intraday sentiment
Week’s Range: 1.1026 – 1.1058

* EURUSD has been playing a narrow range near 1.1050, above the 23-month low seen yesterday at 1.1036. The pair is showing a net loss of just over 1% from week-ago levels, coming after the surprisingly strong US jobs report of last Friday, and followed-up this week by decent non-manufacturing ISM and initial jobless claims data.A sputtering Eurozone economy has been put into relatively sharp contrast by data showing the U.S. economy to be in finer fettle than many were fearing, while the CME’s FedWatch Tool is showing market pricing to have factored in decreasing probability for a rate cut at the December FOMC, with only 5% down from 22% last week (before the October payrolls release).

* Overall, EURUSD holds in a bearish outlook. EURUSD has been amid a bear trend that’s been unfolding since early 2018, from levels around 1.2500 and it is just abreath away from breaking the 50-day SMA. A close today below the latter could seen the retest of 1.1000 and 1.0970 levels.

* The trend has coincided with the 10-year T-note versus 10-year Bund yield differential having narrowed from 278 bps to the current 216 bps.




JPY: AUDJPY reverses gains
Asset: USDJPY 75.36
Daily bias: Bearish
Week’s Range: 74.73-75.80

* Narrow ranges have been seen so far today among the main currencies, which comes with a degree of uncertainty creeping back in with regard to the prospects of a “phase 1” trade deal being reached between the US and China. There are reports of fierce internal opposition among members of the Trump administration, while there is conjecture that President Trump will be emboldened by recent relatively strong U.S. data releases and the record highs on Wall Street and will be apt to take a tough stance against Beijing. This has seen Asian stock markets turn softer.

* USDJPY, after scaling to a 5-month high at 109.48, has settled around 109.20-30, while has currently return northwards again. AUDJPY, which has been an outperformer amid the recent risk-on phase (showing a 7.4% gain at prevailing levels from late-August lows), has also settled lower after printing a 3-month peak yesterday. It is currently retest the midpoint of yesterday’s rally. A confirm move below the latter at the top of the ahour, along with the RSI below 50 suggest the increase of negative bias and therefore a possible retest of 74.90-74.98 ( 61.8% Fib and 200-period SMA) or even lower at the S1 of the day, i.e. 74.73. The strengthening of negative bias is also presented by the lower Bollinger bands which are extending southwards.



CAD: Remains buoyant
Spot: USDCAD 1.3171
Weekly bias: Bearish
Week’s Range: 1.3118 – 1.3230

USDCAD has remained buoyant after posting a 9-day high yesterday at 1.3197. The high has come with the US 10-year over Canadian 10-year yield spread having been trending wider, overall, over the last three weeks, rising from about 19 bp to 29 bp, which has offset a moderate rise in oil prices over this period (oil prices have been trending sideways, within about a $13 range, over the last five months).

USDCAD USDCAD earlier in the week printed a 1-week low at 1.3015 before rebounding. Taking a couple of steps back, USDCAD is near to the midpoint of the range that’s been seen over the last 4-plus years, and there presently doesn’t look to be much potential for this pattern to break. The focus today falls on Canada’s October employment report. From the technical perspective, the asset has broke a significant Resistance level at 1.3195, which represents the 50-day EMA and the 6 day’s high. This along with the positive configuration of RSI suggest that we could seen further upside for the day. ENxt Resistance levels are at 1.3213 and 1.3230 (200-day EMA). Support is at the PP and the low of the day , i.e 1.3170-1.3176.

Events to Look Out For Next Week 11th November 2019.




Important events are coming up this week, with UK, China and US inflation and GDP releases.

Monday – 11 November 2019
  • Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK growth has “slowed materially” this year due to Brexit uncertainty and global trade wars. September forecasts see GDP growth steady, while the preliminary outcome for Q3 is anticipated to slow down.
Tuesday – 12 November 2019
  • ILO & Average Earnings Index 3m/y (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK Earnings with the bonus-excluded figure are seen unchanged at 3.8% y/y in the three months to September. UK ILO unemployment is expected steady at 3.9%.
  • ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Economic Sentiment for November is projected at -22.7 from the -22.8 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though is expected to decline slightly further to -32.5 from -23.5. A lower than expected outcome ties in with the stagnation in market sentiment.
Wednesday – 13 November 2019
  • Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference (NZD, GMT 01:00) – The RBNZ is widely expected to proceed with a 25 bp cut to 0.75% as it continues to ease policy amid the slowing in growth. However, it will be interesting to see whether RBNZ will signal further easing in contrast with the latest encouraging economic data.
  • Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 09:30) – The UK CPI is expected to rebound to a 1.8% y/y rate in October after dipping to 1.7% in September and August from 2.1% in July.
  • Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 0.3% October headline CPI rise is anticipated with a 0.2% core price increase, following respective September readings of flat and 0.1%. As-expected gains would result in a headline y/y increase of 1.7% for a third consecutive month, just as core prices rise 2.4% y/y for a third consecutive month. An up-tilt in y/y gains into Q1 of 2020 is expected due to harder comparisons and some lift from tariff increases that should leave gains in the 2.4% area, which may help ease concerns about persistent inflation undershoots of the Fed’s 2% objective.
  • Powell’s 2-day Testimony (USD, GMT 16:00) – Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell testifies before Congress, providing a broad overview of the economy and monetary policy.
Thursday – 14 November 2019
  • Employment Data (AUD, GMT 00:30) – While the unemployment rate is expected to have increase at 5.3% in October, employment change is expected to have stabilized, at 15K compared to 14.7K last month.
  • Retail Sales ex Fuel (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK Retail Sales are expected to have dipped with a -0.9% ex-auto figure on a m/m basis.
  • Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 13:30) – Eurozone Q3 GDP growth held steady at 0.2% q/q – a better than expected report that highlighted once again that it is a mistake to reduce the Eurozone economy to the German manufacturing sector alone. The same outcome is expected on Thursday as well, at 0.2% q/q for Eurozone preliminary reading.
Friday – 15 November 2019
  • Retail Sales (USD, GMT 14:30) – A 0.4% October gains for both the retail sales headline and the ex-auto figures have been estimated, following a -0.3% September headline dip with a -0.1% ex-auto figure. Gasoline prices should give a boost to retail activity given an estimated 4% increase for the CPI gasoline index. Unit vehicle sales should ease in October with a dip to an estimated 17.0 mln pace from 17.2 mln in September.

USD holds firm; JPY up; AUD & CAD down 14th November 2019.




Both the Dollar and Yen have continued to hold firm against most other currencies amid a backdrop of sputtering global stock markets.

AUD: The Australian Dollar dove following the release of Australia’s October employment report, which showed the unemployment rate ticking higher, to 5.3% from 5.2%. China’s industrial production growth also slowed sharply in October, to 4.7% y/y verses the median forecast for 5.4% growth, with investment growth falling to a record low. Chinese sales also underwhelmed, while preliminary Japanese Q3 GDP disappointed with growth of just 0.1% q/q, with a 0.7% q/q drop in exports shining a light on the impact of trade protectionism.

The Australian dollar dove by over 0.5%, driving AUDUSD to a one-month low at 0.6795, and the AUDNZD cross to a 10-week low, at 1.0625, which coincides with the 20-week SMA. The cross has declined by nearly 2% since the RBNZ unexpectedly refrained from cutting interest rates yesterday. A cross today below the 1.0625 could suggest further fall for the medium term, with next Support at the confluence of 50% Fib. and the 200-day SMA, at 1.0560.



EUR: On a brighter note, German Q3 GDP came in at 0.1% versus the 0.0% median forecast, though Q2 growth was revised lower. The data still helped the Euro lift moderately. EURUSD climbed back above 1.1000 after earlier carving out a fresh one-month low at 1.0994.



YEN: The Yen remained underpinned by safe-haven positioning, albeit moderate. USDJPY printed a nine-day low at 108.62, while both EURJPY and AUDJPY hit new 1-month lows, with both now amid a fifth consecutive day of decline.

CAD: USDCAD is amid a third consecutive week of ascent, and has remained buoyant after printing a 5-month peak at 1.3268 yesterday. The high extended the pronounced gains the pairing has seen since the release of Canada’s October employment report last Friday, which disappointed and caused a reappraisal in BoC monetary policy expectations. At the same time, USOIL prices have turned flat-to-softer following a 1-month up phase, removing what had been a supportive rug from under the Canadian Dollar’s feet. For now, USDCAD looks likely to remain upwardly biased, with the next Resistance at September’s peak, 1.3310, and at October’s 2 consecutive fractals at 1.3345. Support levels are set at 200-day SMA and 50-day SMA.



EURCAD: The EURCAD on the other hand, presents a continues slip pf Euro against Loonie. Intraday, the asset forms a triangle since October 25. The support around 1.4554 and 1.4520 is a key gauge that if gives way would open the lows around 1.4420-1.4450. The RSI moving around 50 and MACD lines at neutral suggesting consolidation in the short term. In the medium term meanwhile, the overall outlook remains neutral to positive, while if market holds above 1.4570-1.4580, it would be a confirmation that positive bias is strengthening, with the next daily Resistance area, 1.4670-1.4700.

Events to Look Out For Next Week 18th November 2019.




Welcome to our weekly agenda, our briefing on all the key financial events globally. The week ahead is expected to reveal a healthy housing sector in the US, while Canadian data could clear the way for BoC. Eurozone’s PMI are also on tab.

Monday – 18 November 2019
  • ECB Financial Stability Review (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Financial Stability Review provides an overview of potential risks to financial stability in the Euro Area.
Tuesday – 19 November 2019
  • Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (AUD, GMT 00:30) – The RBA minutes, similar to the ECB Reports, provide a detailed assessment of the bank’s most recent policy-setting meeting, containing in-depth insights into the economic conditions that influenced the rate decision. They are usually a cause for FX turbulence.
  • Housing starts and Building Permits (USD, GMT 13:30) – The September decline in starts reflected weakness in multi-family components, mainly led in the Northeast and Midwest, alongside small declines in the south and west. Permits have shown a solid growth path through Q3 alongside strength in starts, suggesting a likely solid path for both measures through Q4. Housing starts should rebound to a 1.285 mln pace in October, after the dip in September. Permits similarly are expected to rebound to 1.370 mln in October.
Wednesday – 20 November 2019
  • Interest Rate Decision (CNY, GMT 01:30) – The PBoC is not expected to change its interest rates, at 4.2%.
  • Inflation Report Hearings (GBP, GMT N/A) –The BOE Governor and several MPC members testify on inflation and the economic outlook before the Parliament’s Treasury Committee.
  • Consumer Price Index and Core (CAD, GMT 13:30) – The Canadian CPI for October is expected to have come out higher than last month, at 2.1% from 1.9% in September, after the 0.1% dip in August, as declines in gasoline prices and tuition costs weighed. The CPI added to the backing for no change in rates from the BoC in October.
  • Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (USD, GMT 19:00) – The FOMC Minutes report provides the FOMC Members’ opinions regarding the US economic outlook and any views regarding future rate changes.
Thursday – 21 November 2019
  • ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts (EUR, GMT 1:30) –The ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts, similar to the FOMC minutes, provide information with regards to the policymakers’ rationale behind their decisions. In the last ECB meeting, ECB kept policy settings on hold at Draghi’s last meeting, as widely expected after the comprehensive easing package announced in September.
  • Philly Fed Index (USD, GMT 13:30) – The Philly Fed index is seen rising to 7.0 from 5.6 in October, versus a 1-year high of 21.8 in July and a 33-month low of -4.1 in February. The “soft data” measures have largely stabilized since June around moderate levels, though with a headline from the UAW-GM strike in recent months that seemed to have impacted some surveys but not others. The trade war headwind may subside somewhat in November, though the markets still face a wide array of troubles abroad.
Friday – 22 November 2019
  • Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 07:00) – German Q3 GDP expanded 0.1% q/q – boosted by consumption. Germany not just missed a technical recession, the economy actually expanded slightly in the third quarter, as Q2 was revised down. However, we expect no turnaround yet for the final Q3 GDP, despite the higher headline rate, as the balance of risks remains tilted to the downside.
  • Markit Services and Composite PMIs (EUR, GMT 08:30-09:00) – The prelim. EU Markit PMI Indices are expected to continue above 50, but slightly decline to 51.9 and 50.3 respectively, according to consensus expectations. As for Manufacturing PMI, in November a slight improvement is expected at 46.0, even though the headline rate remains in contraction territory.
  • Retail Sales (CAD, GMT 13:30) – Retail Sales are forecasted to have registered a flat outcome in Canada, after mild declines of 0.1% in August.

From a data perspective, it will definitely be an eventful week with Wednesday and Thursday being the most data-heavy days with US GDP and Durable Goods, and Inflation releases from Europe and Tokyo.

Monday – 25 November 2019

*
German IFO Business Climate (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The German business sentiment index released by the CESifo Group is closely watched as an early indicator of current conditions and business expectations in Germany. November numbers are expected to show a decline in business climate.

The present situation index is anticipated to dip to 169.0 from 172.3 in October, versus a 19-year high of 176.0 in August.

Wednesday – 27 November 2019

*
Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 13:30) – The Q3 GDP growth is expected to be boosted to 2.1% from 1.9%. The revised Q3 data will still depict a quarter with a wide gap between solid consumption growth but contracting business fixed investment in the face of trade uncertainty, slowing growth abroad, disruptions from the Boeing 737 MAX grounding, and the UAW-GM strike.

* Personal Consumption Expenditures Prices (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 0.3% gain is seen in personal income in October after a 0.3% increase in September, alongside a 0.4% rise in consumption that follows a 0.2% September gain.

* Durable Goods (USD, GMT 13:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to fall -1.5% in October with a -4.4% drop in transportation orders, after a -1.2% headline orders drop in September, and a 0.2% uptick in August. Boeing orders fell to just 10 planes in October from 25 in September. A continued headwind from problems with the Boeing 737 Max and disruptions from the UAW-GM strike have prompted buyers to delay new orders and vehicle assemblies to fall to an 8-year low pace.


Thursday- 28 November 2019

*
United States – Thanksgiving Day – US closed.

* Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 13:00) – The German HICP inflation could slip to -0.6% m/m for November from 0.1% m/m. The annualized outcome is expected to remain unchanged at 0.9% y/y.

* Tokyo CPI and Production Data (JPY, GMT 23:30) – The country’s main leading indicator of inflation is expected to remain at 0.4% y/y core in November, and to slip at 0.4% y/y ex Fresh Food. Industrial Production should post a 1.9% growth y/y in October, compared to 1.3% last month.

Friday – 29 November 2019

*
United States – Thanksgiving Day – US early closed at 13:00.

* Unemployment Rate (EUR, GMT 08:55) – Unemployment numbers are probably nearly as important as the GDP growth figure. German unemployment rate is expected to remain unchanged in the annual basis however unemployment change for November is expected to decline to 2K from 6K.

* Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 10:00) – The Euro Area flash CPI for November is forecasted to rise slightly, at 0.9% y/y from 0.7% y/y last month while core is seen at 1.2% y/y from 1.1% y/y.

* Gross Domestic Product (CAD, GMT 13:30) – A sharp slowing in Canada’s real GDP growth rate to 1.2% (q/q, saar) is expected in Q3 following the surge in Q2 growth to a 3.7% clip that was driven by temporary factors. This will add to the backing for a near term rate cut for the Bank of Canada.

Events to Look Out For Next Week 2nd December 2019.




Welcome to our weekly agenda, our briefing of all the key financial events globally. Following another cautious week, after trade jitters and the prospect of further protests in Hong Kong weighed on sentiment, two interest rate decisions and NFP data stand out in the announcement schedule next week. The US-China trade tensions, upcoming UK elections and OPEC meeting in Vienna continue to dominate the week.

Monday – 02 December 2019
  • Building Permits (AUD, GMT 00:30) – Building permits are a known leading indicator of the housing and the overall market. Following the moderatıon of decline in dwelling approvals in September for Australia, it will be interesting to observe whether permits will increase or pullback once again. The consensus for October is at -4.0% m/m, compared to the spike at 7.6% last month.
  • Manufacturing PMIs (EUR, GBP, USD, GMT 08:55-14:45) – The UK manufacturing PMI is expected to hold below neutral at 48.1. The Euro Area PMI is expected to remain at the same levels as last month, at 46.6 and German number at 43.8, while the US ISM PMI in November is expected to increase to 50.5 compared to 48.3. The sentiment surveys have been erratic in recent months likely due to competing perspectives on the trade war, troubles abroad, and stock price gyrations.
Tuesday – 03 December 2019
  • Interest Rate Decision (AUD, GMT 03:30) – No surprises are expected even though in the last RBA statement Governor Lowe admitted that there are downside risks and admitted that the bank could ease again if necessary. He also suggested that previous easing steps are already supporting the economy and while the bank is monitoring developments there was nothing to signal immediate moves.
Wednesday – 04 December 2019
  • Gross Domestic Product (AUD, GMT 00:30) – Third quarter GDP for Australia is expected to have settled at 1.4% y/y.
  • Employment Data (USD, GMT 13:15) – US ADP Employment Change is anticipated to grow by 138K in November from 125K last month.
  • ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 15:00) – The ISM-NMI index is expected to rise to 55.0 in November from 54.7 in October. Sentiment has received ongoing support, however, from tight labor markets, high consumer confidence levels, and firm GDP and consumption growth. We should see at least some November updraft following the settlement of the UAW-GM strike.
  • Interest Rate Decision (CAD, GMT 15:00) – In October, the Bank of Canada maintained the 1.75% rate setting, matching widespread expectations. However, the announcement was overall dovish and the Bank seems like it has opened the door wide open to a rate cut if the resilience of the domestic economy shows signs of faltering.
Thursday – 05 December 2019
  • OPEC meeting in Vienna
  • Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Third quarter GDP s.a. for Europe is expected to have settled at 0.2% q/q, unchanged from the second quarter.
  • Trade balance (USD, GMT 13:30) – The trade deficit is expected to widen in October to -$53.5 bln from -$52.5 bln in September. The exports are anticipated to hold steady at $206.0 bln, while imports should rise 0.4% to $259.6 bln. Both exports and imports face headwinds from a decline in vehicle trade with the UAW-GM strike, as well as a drop in petroleum prices following the Saudi drone bombing in September.
Friday – 06 December 2019
  • Event of the Week – Non-Farm Payrolls (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 190k November nonfarm payroll rise has been forecasted, following a 128k increase in October. This reflects a November reversal of the UAW-GM strike impact that left a restrained 128k October rise, with an estimated 40k November bounce in factory jobs after the -36k October drop.
  • Labour Market Data (CAD, GMT 13:30) – October employment revealed a 1.8k drop in jobs, contrary to expectations for a measured gain (median 15k), following the 53.7k jump in September. However, the November reading is anticipated to jump back to 15.9K while the unemployment rate is expected to rise as well at 5.6% m/m from 5.5% last month.

FX Update – December 4 – Risk Off – 4th December 2019.




AUDJPY, H1
The Yen has rallied on a safe-haven bid as global stock markets turn lower after President Trump, nearly two months after announcing the limited “Phase 1” trade deal with China, said that trade negotiations may be postponed until after the 2020 presidential election. This after announcing intentions to tariff steel imports from Brazil and Argentina. Disappointing Q3 GDP out of Australia, a country that is highly exposed to the US-China trade, was also in the mix. Growth came in at 0.4% q/q in the antipodean economy, against a median of 0.5%. USDJPY printed a 13-day low at 108.43, while EURJPY and AUDJPY descended into respective one-week low territory and is the biggest moving pair today, down some -0.6%. The Australian Dollar has been the day’s biggest loser out of the main currencies. AUDUSD more than reversed gains seen yesterday on the less dovish than expected RBA statement, in making a low of 0.6814. The AUDJPY triggered lower yesterday on the Crossing EMA Strategy, H1 at 13:00 GMT (1) move down to T1 (2), retraced to Entry (3) to close T2 flat. It then triggered lower again (4) and moved to T1 (5) and T2 (6) for a net move of 47 pips for both legs lower.



The Dollar, outside the case of USDJPY, has held firm, finding its own safe haven bid. The sharpest in six months drop in the U.S. 10-year T-note yield yesterday was a reflection of this safe haven bid, which is why forex markets haven’t been trading on yield differential dynamics in the latest phase. Both EURUSD and Cable both drifted moderately lower, before a bid on Sterling saw cable breach 1.3000 and trade over 1.3040 and post a new six month high. Elsewhere, EURCHF has dropped for a third consecutive trading day, this time hitting a three-week low at 1.0923. The decline in the cross have correlated with the prevailing risk-off phase that started at Friday’s release of disappointing U.S. manufacturing ISM data.
