    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 24th October 2017.




    FX News Today

    European Outlook: Asian stock markets moved mostly higher overnight, as Japan’s equities continued to rally following Abe’s election win and on hopes of ongoing monetary stimulus. the CSI 300 and the ASX also shrugged off losses in the U.S. and moved higher, although the Hang Seng is marginally in the red and the ASX up a mere 0.06%. U.S. stock futures are up, FTSE 100 futures in the red and there is some caution settling in ahead of earnings reports, especially after the recent run higher in global markets. In Europe politics remain high on the agenda, as Catalonia’s government ponders the response to Madrid’s plans to take over direct control, while Brexit uncertainty lingers, although on the continent at least have long started to prepare for alternative suppliers and cut back business ties with the U.K.. Today’s calendar has French business confidence, as well as preliminary PMI readings for the Eurozone as well as the ECB’s bank lending survey.

    FX Update: The dollar majors have posted relatively narrow ranges so far today. EUR-USD has settled around 1.1750 after logging a two-week low at 1.1724 late yesterday. Market participant will remain vigilant on developments in Spain, with Catalonian leaders threatening to unleash mass civil disobedience over the independence issue. A plenary meeting on Thursday’s in Catalan’s regional parliament has become a focal point, and there is some speculation that it may be used a cover for a vote on whether to unilaterally declare independence. We expect the euro to be a sell-on-rallies trade in the meantime. Elsewhere, USD-JPY recouped and settled to the mid 113s after logging a low late yesterday at 113.24. The low completed a correction from the three-month high seen yesterday at 114.10, which was seen as markets reacted to the resounding victory of Abe at weekend elections.

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 25th October 2017.




      FX News Today

      European Outlook: Asian stock markets moved cautiously higher, Japan underperform as the Nikkei pulled back from record highs and fluctuated with the Yen. It is currently down -0.43% as the Yen strengthened across the board. The Hang Seng recovered from yesterday’s correction, CSI 300 and ASX 200 are also higher, while U.S. and U.K. stock futures are in the red. Investors are turning cautious again and contemplate the recent run higher in global equities. The DAX managed to close above the 13000 mark again yesterday, but yesterday’s inflation warnings from Markit have increased speculation of a higher ECB taper than currently expected and lifted yields sharply and bond markets are likely to remain defensive ahead of tomorrow’s announcement. The focus today will be on the Ifo reading, which is expected to show broadly stable sentiment. The U.K. released the advance reading for Q3 GDP and we are looking for a steady quarterly growth rate of 0.3% q/q, in line with consensus.

      Australia CPI slowed to a 1.8% y/y growth rate in Q3 from the 1.9% rate of increase in Q2. The slowing undershot expectations for a steady or faster annual growth rate (we projected 1.9%). CPI grew 0.6% in Q3 (q/q, sa) after the 0.2% rise in Q2. The “core” measures also came in on the soft side. The trimmed mean CPI grew 1.8% y/y, matching the 1.8% pace in Q2. The trimmed mean slowed to a 0.4% clip in Q3 (q/q, sa) from 0.5% in Q2. The growth rate for the weighted median CPI was 1.9%, steady compared to the revised 1.9% pace in Q2 (was +1.8%). The weighted median CPI grew 0.3% in Q3 (q/q, sa) after the revised 0.6% pace in Q2 (was 0.5%). Total and “core” CPI measures remain below the RBA’s 2-3% target band, consistent with no change in rates through the first half of next year. CB’s bank lending survey.

        MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 26th October 2017.




        FX News Today

        After both Markit PMIs as well the Ifo reported mounting capacity pressures, there is a good chance that the ECB will cut back asset purchases by more than the EUR 30 bln that Bloomberg consensus suggests. However, while this is likely to see a knee jerk reaction on forex and bond markets, we expect Draghi to package the taper in a dovish statement and forward guidance, in particular leaving the option for another program extension open to dampen the impact and prevent “overreactions” on forex markets. Draghi will also confirm the sequence of exit steps, with rates expected to remain low well past the end of asset purchases, which with a 9 months program extension would push out any rate hike into 2019. And even with EUR 20 bln per months for another 9 months, the ECB will still extend its balance sheet by a further EUR 180 bln, so monetary policy will not only remain expansionary, it will be even more expansionary than now, with Draghi only gently taking the foot off the accelerator. Indeed, the good news this week was that while Bund yields jumped higher Eurozone peripherals actually mostly outperformed. So at least on that front Draghi can be a bit more confident that “less for longer” will not be a cause of a fresh wave of instability.

        The euro has been trading buoyantly into the ECB announcement today. EURUSD clocked a one-week high of 1.1837 earlier in the Asian session, and while EURJPY and EURCHF have remained below their respective 22- and 33-month highs of yesterday, they remain underpinned, with both crosses having picked up from shallow dips. EURUSD has akey support/restance level at 1.1830 which represents the 38.2 Fibonacci retrace level from the September 8th high at 1.2092.

          FX News Today

          on the citizenship eligibility of lawmakers. FTSe 100 and U.S. stock futures are higher, but it remains to the seen whether the Eurozone can hold the Dfraghi induced gains from yesterday. And Spanish markets, which outperformed yesterday on reports that Puigdemont may be open to early elections, are likely to retreat again after the Catalan leader backtracked partly and ruled out early elections if Madrid doesn’t stop the process to take over control, thus setting the region on a confrontation course with Madrid, which is expected to get clearance from lawmakers today to directly take over control in the autonomous region. The data calendar is pretty empty today, with only German import prices at the start of the session, as well as French consumer confidence and the ECB’s survey of professional forecasters.

          FX Action: USDJPY logged a fresh three-month high, at 114.26, making this the seventh up day out of the last nine sessions. EURJPY and most other yen crosses have also been underpinned over this period. The resounding mandate Abe won at Japan’s election of October 15 imparted a downward bias on the yen, as the prime minister’s favoured policy set includes a continued commitment to ultra-accommodative monetary policy, contrasting to the tightening path of the Fed and other central banks. USDJPY has support at 113.60, while the July peak at 114.49 provides an initial target. The year’s high, posted back in January, is at 118.61.

            MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 30th October 2017.




            FX News Today

            The U.S. calendar is packed with key events and data, but none more important than President Trump’s announcement of his choice for Fed chair. That will have implications for years to come. An announcement will be forthcoming this week; Powell as chair, and Taylor for vice chair?

            United States: The FOMC meets this week, the Fed is unanimously expected to leave rates unchanged at its meeting Tuesday, Wednesday. Although the back-to-back quarterly growth rates of 3.1% and 3.0% for Q2 and Q3 could argue for a tightening, inflation remains tame, and more importantly, there has been no Fedspeak to suggest a move is imminent. No press conference. September income and consumption (Monday) will help fine tune the quarter’s GDP outlook after the report of a 3.0% growth rate last Friday. October consumer confidence is forecast rising to 121. The Chicago PMI should fall to 62.0 in October after jumping 6.3 points to 65.2 in September. ADP headlines (Wednesday) along with the October ISM manufacturing numbers. We’re projecting a 200k jump in private payroll from the ADP, while the manufacturing index should dip to 58.5. October vehicle sales (Thursday) should are expected to decline amid ongoing hurricane disruptions. September construction spending also is likely to be distorted by the various hurricane effects. Nonfarm payrolls (Friday) are forecast surging 320k -400k in October, as the labor market gets back in gear following the hurricane disruptions that knocked employment down by 33k in September. The unemployment rate should hold at 4.2%. The ISM nonmanufacturing index (Friday) should dip to 58.5 in October (median 58.5), giving back some of the 4.5 point gain to 59.8 in September, which was the highest since August 2005.

            The earnings slate remains very heavy, though not as bad as last week, which was the busiest for the Q3 season

            Canada: August GDP (Tuesday) is expected to rise 0.1% m/m after the flat reading in July. The industrial product price index is seen expanding 0.5% in September after the 0.3% rise in August, as firmer gasoline prices more than offset the drag of a stronger loonie. Employment (Friday) is projected to grow 20.0k in October after the 10.0k gain in September. The unemployment rate is seen at 6.2%, matching September’s rate. Average weekly earnings are expected to expand at a 2.2% y/y pace, matching the growth rate in September. The trade deficit (Friday) is anticipated to narrow to -C$3.0 bln in September from -C$3.4 bln in August. Poloz and Wilkins due to speak Tuesday.

            Europe: German HICP (Monday) is seen steady at 1.8%, French inflation reading (Tuesday) likely to nudge higher to 1.2%. The overall Eurozone HICP (Tuesday) should be unchanged at 1.5%. Eurozone manufacturing PMI (Thursday) expected to be confirmed at 58.6. Advanced readings for French GDP and overall Eurozone Q3 GDP (both Tuesday) to show quarterly growth rates that are in line with the first quarter at 0.5% and 0.6% respectively. Spanish GDP meanwhile is expected to nudge lower slightly to 0.8%. The recovery clearly has reached the job market and PMIs also suggest ongoing job creation as companies struggle to fill still strong orders growth and expand production. The German labour market is already very tight and jobless numbers (Monday) are in our view likely to pick up slightly after a stronger than expected dip in September. Still, even the expected pick up of 4K, would leave the October jobless rate at a very low 5.6%. For the Eurozone unemployment rate (Tuesday) we are looking for a decline to 9.0% from 9.1%

            UK: UK data reports over the last week have mostly disappointed. The calendar is highlighted by the BoE’s November Monetary Policy Committee (announcing Thursday), which will be accompanied by the publication of its quarterly Inflation Report. Following the BoE’s guidance, markets are fully expecting the central bank to make its first hike of the repo rate in 10 years, taking it to 0.50% from 0.35%.We expect the BoE to package the tightening in dovish guidance. Data releases this week include September data from the BoE on lending (Monday), which we expect to show mortgage approvals come in near unchanged at 66.0k, October Gfk consumer confidence (Tuesday), which we forecast dipping to -10 from -9 in the month prior, and the October PMI surveys. We expect the manufacturing PMI (Wednesday) to come in at 55.9 which would be the same reading as in September. We anticipate the servicers PMI (Friday) in at 53.3 after 53.6 in the month previous.

            China: CFLP October manufacturing PMI (Tuesday) is forecast sliding to 52.0 from 52.4. The Caixin/Markit PMI (Wednesday) likely eased to 50.5 from 51.0.

            Japan: The BoJ headlines and on Tuesday, no policy changes are expected. The Bank will likely recommit to ultra-accommodative policy settings. As for data, September retail sales (Monday) are expected to dip to a 0.5%. September unemployment (Tuesday) is seen unchanged at 2.7%, with the job offers/seekers ratio likely to tick up to 1.53. PCE (due Tuesday), should show consumption at a 0.5% y/y pace from 0.6%. September industrial production (Tuesday) is penciled in at -2.0% y/y, tumbling from August’s 2.0%. September housing starts (Tuesday) are expected to contract further to a -3.0% y/y rate from -2.0% previously, while construction orders are also slated (Tuesday). Also on the slate are October manufacturing PMI (Wednesday) and October consumer confidence (Thursday), expected at 43.5 from 43.9. Japan is closed Friday for Culture Day.

            Australia: CPI (Wednesday) is the focus this week, with a 0.9% gain expected in Q3 after the tame 0.2% rise in Q2. The trade price report (Thursday) is expected to reveal a 1.0% drop in Q3 import prices after the 0.1% dip in Q2. Export prices are seen falling 3.0% in Q3 following the 5.7% pull-back in Q2. The Q3 PPI is due Friday. Reserve Bank of Australia Deputy Governor Debelle speaks (Thursday) on “Uncertainty.”

              MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 6th November 2017.




              FX News Today

              The President Trump is off to Asia, the earnings season is winding down and the data calendar is thinning. There are several central bank meetings in Asia, however, but they should maintain the status quo. The U.S. economic calendar is a fairly lean one this week should largely be overshadowed by the October payrolls report the week prior, even as U.S. data continues to hit escape velocity after the early dampening impact of the fall hurricanes and even the Napa firestorms.

              United States: The week starts slowly with the release of JOLTS job openings (Tuesday), followed by the MBA mortgage applications and EIA energy inventory reports (Wednesday). Initial jobless claims are forecast to rebound 6k to 235k for the November 11 week (Thursday), while wholesale sales are forecast to rise 1.0% in September vs 1.7% and inventories are expected to increase 0.3% vs 0.8%. The week rounds out with updates on preliminary Michigan sentiment (Friday) seen rising to a median 100.7 in November from 100.7. Fedspeak will be highlighted by a Chair Yellen acceptance speech at the Paul H. Douglas Award for Ethics in Government (Tuesday) from 15 ET, though one would imagine that there will be little of policy substance here as she begins the transition to Chair-nominee Powell.

              Canada: The docket of economic data is housing-heavy this week. October housing starts (Wednesday) are expected to slip to 215.0k from 217.3k in September. Building permits (Wednesday) are seen falling 1.0% m/m in September after the 5.5% drop in August. The new housing price index (Thursday) is projected to gain 0.1% m/m in September, matching the 0.1% rise in August. Meanwhile, Bank of Canada Governor Poloz speaks (Tuesday) to the CFA Montreal and Montreal Council on Foreign Relations. His speech is titled “Central banks’ ability to understand inflation.” The Governor will also hold a press conference following the speech. The Bank of Canada’s “cautious” approach prevailed from the announcement-MPR-press-conference in October through testimony to Parliament last week from Poloz and Wilkins.

              Europe: With central bank decisions out of the way, the focus returns to Brexit talks. The December summit is approaching fast and so far there is no sign that there has been any progress on the key issues EU leaders want to have clarified before they agree to start trade talks. The data calendar is slowing down, but on the whole should confirm that the Eurozone recovery remains on track. German orders and production data may be expected to correct in September from the strong August numbers, but annual rates remain high and survey data suggests overall growth remained broadly steady at 0.6% q/q in Q3. The manufacturing orders expected (Monday) down -1.4% m/m and industrial production (Tuesday), down -1.2% m/m. The final reading for the Eurozone services PMI is likely to confirm that growth in the sector slowed down somewhat in October. September producer price inflation for the Eurozone (Monday), is expected to show an acceleration in the headline rate to 2.8% y/y from 2.5% y/y, as companies start to pass on cost pressures. Still, as the ECB already clarified its policy path until the end of September next year, the data don’t change the immediate outlook. Supply comes from Germany, which issues index linked bonds Tuesday and 5-year Bonds Wednesday.

              UK: Both Gilt yields and sterling tumbled last week, with both adjusting to a lower trading range following the BoE’s guidance at its November MPC meeting last week. The calendar this week starts with the BRC retail sales report for October (Monday), which will be of interest following the much weaker than expected CBI distributive sales survey, which, although not normally taken too seriously (as it covers only a two week period with relative few survey respondents), fanned concerns about the health of the consumer sector in the face of eroding spend power, with inflating having been outstripping pay awards for most of the year. Other data of note include September production and trade figures (both due Friday), where a 0.3% m/m rise and a 1.9% y/y gain, expected.

              China’s calendar has October trade (Wednesday), anticipated to widen to a $37.0 bln surplus from $28.6 bln in September. The CPI (Thursday) is projected at 1.8% y/y in October from 1.6% in September. The PPI (Thursday) is expected to slide to 6.5% y/y in October from 6.9% y/y in September. New Yuan loans (Friday) are seen falling to $900.0 bln in October from $1270.0 bln in September. Broadly, growth in China’s economy appears to be moderating.

              Japan: Japan’s docket is sparse this week. Core machinery orders (Thursday) are expected to pull-back 3.0% m/m in September after the 3.4% bounce in August. The tertiary industry index (Friday) is projected to fall 0.2% m/m in September after the 0.2% decline in August.

              Australia: The Reserve Bank of Australia’s meeting is the highlight. The Bank (Tuesday) is expected to hold the setting for the cash rate steady at 1.50%. The accompanying statement should be consistent with steady rates well into next year. The Bank releases an updated set of projections in Friday’s Statement on Monetary Policy. The economic data docket is empty of top tier releases this week. Housing investment (Thursday) is seen expanding 3.0% m/m in September after the 1.0% rise in August.

                FX News Today

                European Outlook: Asian stock markets rallied, with the Nikkei closing up 1.7%, ASX and Hang Seng also surged more than 1%. The Nikkei 225 closed at the highest level since 1992, underpinned by corporate earnings and the yen’s weakness against the dollar, while the turmoil in Saudi Arabia sent energy prices surging higher. U.K. and U.S. stock futures are also up as the front end WTI future climbed above USD 57 per barrel. The local calendar today has U.K. house price numbers, Eurozone retail PMIs and Eurozone retail sales. Earlier German production data released, which corrected -1.6% m/m in September, more than anticipated. After the strong 2.6% m/m rise in the previous month, this was only a partial correction that still left the annual rate at a healthy 3.6% y/y and with orders continuing to surge ahead, production seems to have taken a breather at the end of the third quarter.

                Reserve Bank of Australia held the cash rate at 1.50%, matching widespread expectations. Governor Lowe said the low level of interest rates is supporting the economy. The Board judged that holding rates steady would be “consistent with sustainable growth in the economy and achieving the inflation target over time.” The AUD appreciation since mid year is “expected to contribute to continued subdued price pressures in the economy.” The Bank’s forecast remains “for inflation to pick-up gradually as the economy strengthens.” Finally, the Bank’s growth forecasts are largely unchanged, with growth expected to pick-up and average around 3% over the next few years. AUDUSD bumped higher to 0.7965 from 0.7680 on the as-expected result, but has quickly returned to 0.7680.

                  FX News Today

                  European Outlook: Asian stock markets were narrowly mixed. The Tokyo Stock Price Index closed at the highest level since 1991, while other indices hovered slightly below recent highs. The Dollar slipped on tax news, and oil prices fell back and UK100 and U.S. stock futures are in the red, while oil prices fell back below USD 56 per barrel. Time for stock taking it seems and yesterday’s late sell off on European bourses, which saw bond yields coming down sharply, it may be time for consolidation. There is not much else on the European calendar and French trade numbers are unlikely to attract too much attention.

                  Fed & BoC: Yesterday, Fed Chair Yellen stuck to the script on ethics in government and didn’t stray into policy or the economy when she accepted her shared Douglas award with former Fed Chief Bernanke from the University of Illinois. Therefore she did not attract much attention by the market. BoC’s Poloz also delivered a speech yesterday, in which he downplayed the recent “perk-up” in wages, saying last week’s job report was “an encouraging set of numbers.” However, the “trend-line for wages has been quite low” and it perked up in the last data point but we “need more data points to be assured of that.” On oil, he cautioned that the supply curve for oil is more elastic than in the past (quick supply response). In response to a question on NAFTA, he repeated his often aired view last month that the main impact on their thinking focuses on business investment, and the extent to which already raised expectations would be higher if not for the uncertainty surrounding the negotiations. On inflation, he said the “shortfall from target has been pretty modest. It is still within the bank’s target band. People still think 2% is the right number.

                    FX News Today

                    European Outlook: Asian stock markets mostly moved higher. Japan under-performed and markets retreated in the afternoon from 25 year highs. A stronger Yen technically driven trading knocked indices and the Nikkei closed down -0.20%. News that the U.S. three-carrier strike group was conducting exercises off the Korean peninsular seemed to rattle some nerves in markets, prompting buying of the safe haven Japanese currency while pushing stocks — particularly markets in Japan and South Korea — off highs. Elsewhere markets closed higher. U.S. and UK100 futures are down, GER30 futures are pretty steady as markets await a number of key earnings reports, including Siemens and Deutsche Post, which could lift the GER30 to new record highs. Released overnight. Released overnight, the U.K. RICS house price balance came in weaker than expected. Still to come the ECB publishes its latest economic bulletin and the European Commission its updated set of forecasts.

                    Last night, RBNZ held rates steady at 1.75%, matching widespread expectations for no change to the Official Cash Rate. Governor Spencer said policy will remain accommodative for a considerable period. Hence no change is anticipated for an extended period, with the next move a rate increase late in 2018. Today, German trade surplus widened in Q3. Germany posted a sa trade surplus of EUR 21.8 bln in September, slightly higher than the EUR 21.3 bln in August. This is nominal data, which is impacted by currency and oil price fluctuations, but the numbers point to a positive contribution from next exports to overall trade.

                      European Outlook: China outperformed and stocks head for the best week in three months, after an announcement that limits on foreign ownership of Chinese banks and asset managers will be removed. and while Chinese investors also propped up Hong Kong markets, elsewhere in Asia equities mostly declined, with Japan leading the way, following on from declines on Wall Street in Europe yesterday. U.S. tax concerns have spooked markets and the GER30 closed with a loss of -1.49% on Thursday, amid disappointing earnings reports, a stronger EUR and concerns about the prospects for U.S. tax reforms and while the index still remains at high level of over 13000 some are speculating on a broader correction from record levels. UK100 futures as well as DJ mini futures are posting marginal gains, but the UK100 already outperformed yesterday amid a weaker pound. Today’s calendar focuses on production data out of the U.K., France and Italy and the U.K. also has trade data for September and the NIESR GDP estimate in the afternoon.

                      FX Action: USDJPY has recovered poise in Asia after tumbling yesterday on news that the implementation of the Senate plan to cut corporate tax in the U.S. will be delayed by two years and the extent of some other taxes will be trimmed. The news sparked a steep sell-off in U.S. and global equity markets, driving demand for the yen, among other perceived safe haven currencies and assets. A subsequent report that Republican Senator Cornyn is looking to avoid a one-year delay seemed to throw markets a lift line. USDJPY pair has recouped to around 113.40 after clocking a low at 113.09, which is the lowest level seen since October 31.

                      • Date : 13th November 2017.

                        THE ECONOMIC WEEK AHEAD.




                        Main Macro Events This Week

                        Global bonds and stocks generally declined last week, in large part on political and fiscal worries. Equities slid in the U.S. and Europe, with Wall Street posting its first losing week since September. Despite improved global growth, wrangling in Washington and anxiety over the Trump agenda, especially with the duelling tax plans, concerns over a potential ballooning U.S. deficit, along with Brexit-related angst, not to mention the political intrigue in Saudi Arabia, and rising oil prices, all saw investors fleeing key asset markets. These factors will keep trading choppy and cautious.

                        United States: Politics and the debate on tax reform will remain front and centre this week, although there are several important data releases, as well as Fedspeak, and earnings announcements that will vie for attention. All eyes will be on Washington as the Republican controlled House and Senate try to reconcile their respective tax plans in time for a vote this year. There are several key economic releases this week that will help fine tune the outlook heading into year-end, with some of the disaster effects washing out. October CPI and retail sales (Wednesday) headline the calendar. Production and manufacturing data will also be of interest. Industrial production (Thursday) is expected to climb 0.7% in October, bouncing on disaster rebuilding, following the 0.3% September gain, with capacity utilization rising to 76.4% from 76.0%. The November Empire State manufacturing index (Wednesday) is seen falling to 24.0 after the 5.8 point jump to 30.2 previously. The November Philly Fed index (Thursday) should fall 3.9 points to 24.0 after rising 4.1 points to 27.9 in October. Also important this week will be housing starts for October, expected to increase to a 1.160 mln rate from 1.127 mln.

                        Canada: Canada’s bond markets are closed Monday for Remembrance Day. Stocks markets are open. The calendar features September manufacturing (Thursday) and October CPI (Friday). The Teranet/National Home Price Index for October and the October existing home sales report are both due on Wednesday. ADP debuts its Canada National Employment report on Thursday. ADP’s U.S. report is a market mover, and the Canada edition is sure to generate considerable interest given the lack of direct inputs available for the Statistic Canada’s monthly jobs report. Bank of Canada Senior Deputy Governor Wilkins speaks on Wednesday to the Money Marketeers of New York in New York, NY. Her speech is titled “Monetary Policy Under Uncertainty.” The Bank publishes the biannual Bank of Canada Review on Thursday.

                        Europe: Geopolitical risks weighed on markets last week and huge swings in peripheral long yields highlight that the ECB’s ongoing presence on secondary markets is leaving its mark and in times of weak supply is also likely to add to volatility. Rate hikes are not on the horizon until 2019, but the large number of ECB officials on the speaking circuit this week is likely to once again show that a growing divergence between the hawks and the doves at the ECB with the number of those urging a commitment to an exit to QE on the rise. Data releases include final inflation data for October, which are unlikely to hold major surprises. German HICP (Tuesday) expected to be confirmed at 1.5% y/y and the overall Eurozone HICP (Thursday) at just 1.4% y/y. Those will support arguments for the doves at the ECB. Still, growth indicators are robust and the first reading of German GDP growth for Q3 (Tuesday) is seen at 0.5% q/q, slightly slower than the 0.6% clip Q2. Also on the calendar are country GDP readings, including Italy and Portugal, among others, as well as Eurozone trade, BoP and production data.The most important indicator for the markets and the overall growth outlook will be the German ZEW readings for November (Tuesday). A slightly weaker than expected numbers would still suggest the German economy, in particular, is on course to steam ahead with above potential growth rates this year and next, making the ECB’s monetary policy position looking too expansionary for the Eurozone’s largest economy. These factors aren’t likely to impress the doves, however, who remain focused on still sluggish growth in Italy in particular.

                        UK: The calendar this week is highlighted by the release of October inflation data (Tuesday). The BoE is anticipating CPI to decline to 2.4% in 2018 after 3.0% this year, and to ebb further to 2.2% y/y in 2019. The central bank is expected to hike the repo rate two more times over this period, though latest BoE agents report highlighted that wage demands are picking up — a backdrop that, should it sustain, could potentially see policymakers turn more hawkish. Labour market data is also up this week (Wednesday), where the unemployment rate anticipated unchanged at the cycle low of 4.3% in September. Attention will be on average household income figures given the BoE’s agents report shining of light on a possible sea change in the bargaining position of workers amid a tightening labour market. October retail sales data will round out the UK’s agenda this week (Thursday).

                        China: In China, October industrial output (Tuesday) is seen at 6.0% y/y from 6.7% previously, while October retail sales are anticipated at a 10.4% y/y rate from 10.3%. October loan growth and new yuan loan data (tentatively Wednesday) should show the former at a 13.0% y/y clip from 13.1%, with the latter at CNY 900.0 bln from 1,270.0 bln.

                        Japan: In Japan, the preliminary look at Q3 GDP (Wednesday) is penciled in at 1.5% q/q from 2.5% in Q2. Revised September industrial production is also due (Wednesday). It fell 1.1% in the preliminary print, versus a 2.0% August gain.

                        Australia: The October employment report (Thursday) is expected to show a 20.0k increase employment after the 19.8k gain in September. The unemployment rate is seen at 5.5% in October, identical to the rate in September. The wage price index (Wednesday) is projected to expand at a 0.6% pace in Q3 (q/q, sa) after the 0.5% rise in Q2. The wage price index is seen growing at a 2.1% y/y pace in Q3 from the 1.9% y/y pace seen each quarter from Q3 of 2016 to Q2 of 2017. The 1.9% y/y growth pace is the slowest pace on record going back to the late 1990’s. Assistant Governor (Economic) Ellis speaks Wednesday.

                          European Outlook: Asian stock markets trended lower in sluggish trading, U.S. tax reform developments remain in focus and disappointing manufacturing data out of China did little to boost sentiment. The Nikkei closed little changed, after swinging between gains and losses, the Hang Seng also moved sideways, while CSI 300 and ASX slipped, the latter despite solid business confidence data, which boosted the Aussie dollar and lifted bond yields. After a quiet start to the week, the calendar is heating up today, with German Q3 GDP data and final October inflation numbers at the start of the session, followed by U.K. inflation data, Eurozone production and Q3 GDP. Central bankers are meeting in Frankfurt Fed’s Yellen, ECB’s Draghi, BoE’s Carney, BoJ’s Kuroda are all scheduled to speak this morning.

                          German HICP inflation was confirmed at 1.5% y/y, as expected, while German Q3 GDP much higher than expected at 0.8% q/q, up from 0.6% q/q and versus a median forecast of 0.6% q/q. A slight slowdown was expected in the quarterly growth rate as production dynamics seemed to have slowed down temporarily, but while there is no official breakdown, the statistics office reported that net exports were a major contributor to growth in the third quarter of the year, so external demand will have compensated for the somewhat more muted performance elsewhere over the summer. The annual rate jumped to 2.8% y/y. That the German economy continues to race ahead is evident in most data and orders suggest a renewed uptick in manufacturing in the last quarter of the year with growth rates exceeding potential going ahead.

                            FX News Today

                            European Outlook: The sell off in global stock markets continued in Asia overnight, With Japan underperforming and the Nikkei closing with a loss of -1.57% as a stronger Yen added to pressure from profit taking as the year end comes into view. Concern over the rout in China’s bond market and the sell off in global commodities underpinned the decline. Oil prices continued to slide overnight, with the front end WTI future currently just barely above the USD 55.0 per barrel level. China’s 10-year yields breached 4% for the first time in more than three years yesterday, and while they are back below the key level amid a wider decline in Asian yields, there are fears more is to come. Yields in the U.S. and Europe also declined yesterday and with stock futures heading south bonds are likely to remain sought. The calendar today has the final reading for French Nov HICP and Eurozone trade data, but the focus will be on U.K. labour market and wage date, with BoE’s Cunliffe stressing late yesterday that the central bank needs clear pay growth evidence before hiking again. There is supply from Germany, which auctions 10-year Bunds after already selling 2-year Schatz notes yesterday and ECB speakers are also on the schedule.

                            Japan’s GDP slowed to a 1.4% growth pace in Q3, nearly as expected following a revised 2.6% gain in Q2 (was +2.5%). Consumption spending fell 0.5% in Q3 (q/q, sa) amid poor weather conditions, after a revised 0.7% gain in Q2 (was +0.8%). Business spending rose 0.2% in Q3 (q/q, sa) after the 0.5% gain in Q2. Net exports added to GDP. This was the seventh consecutive quarter of GDP growth. The deflator grew 0.1% (y/y, sa) in Q3 following the 0.4% drop in Q2 and 0.8% decline in Q1. There was a flat reading (0.0%) in Q4 of 2016 and a 0.1% dip in Q3 of 2016. Hence, this is the first expansion in the deflator since the 0.4% rise in Q2 of 2016. USDJPY has slipped to 113.22 from 113.40 going into the report’s release.

                            US Retail Sales – Expectations – inching up 0.1% in October, with the ex-auto aggregate rising 0.3% following gains of 1.6% and 1.0%, respectively in September, which were also impacted by the hurricanes. Production and manufacturing data will also be of interest.

                              MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 16th November 2017.




                              FX News Today

                              European Outlook: Stock markets bounced back during the Asian session, and the Nikkei gained nearly 1.5% as technology and telecom stocks led the way and a weaker Yen added support. Profit taking seems to have run its course and traders are leaving concerns about the progress of U.S. tax reforms and China’s slowdown and credit burden behind and refocus on positive corporate earnings. U.K. and U.S. futures are also higher, suggesting that global markets are set to recover some of the losses from earlier in the week. Yields still dropped in Asia overnight and Bund futures climbed higher in after hour trade, with Eurozone peripherals in particular likely to benefit from the return in risk appetite. The EUR is down from recent highs, but still hovering around the 1.18 mark against the Dollar. The local calendar has U.K. retail sales data and the final reading of Eurozone HICP inflation for October.

                              FX Action: USDJPY has traded firmer so far today, rising concomitantly with stock markets in Asia. U.S. equity index futures are also up after the USA500 posted its biggest daily loss yesterday in two months. The yen has been correlating inversely with global stock markets this week, as it is apt to do during phases of pronounced swings in investor risk appetite. The weakness in the currency today has in turn injected extra buoyancy into Japanese stock markets, with the Topix index outperforming most of its regional peers with a gain of just over 1%. News that two U.S. senators (Ron Johnson and Susan Collins) have publicly criticised the tax reform bill may limit the rebound potential of stock markets, at least on Wall Street.

                                MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 17th November 2017.




                                FX News Today

                                European Outlook: The recovery on global stock markets continued in Asia overnight, with a round of positive earnings from U.S. companies reports and progress on the U.S. tax reform plan underpinning risk appetite. The Hang Seng outperformed with banks underpinned by optimism over new shareholding rules. Elsewhere gains were more muted however, and the Nikkei closed up 0.20%, while U.K. Stock futures are down, and U.S. futures narrowly mixed. Oil prices are slightly higher on the day and the front end WTI future is trading a USD 55.35 per barrel. A more cautious mood then on stock markets going into the European open and long yields declined in Japan and Australia. Bund futures extended losses in after hour trade yesterday, with Gilt under-performing and with BoE’s Carney repeating late yesterday that there will be more rate hikes, if the economy develops along expected lines, Gilts could well continue to underperform. Today’s data calendar has Eurozone BoE and current account data and Bundesbank President Weidmann is scheduled to speak.

                                U.S. reports: revealed a surprisingly robust round of industrial production figures, with a 0.9% October surge after big upward revisions back through May, alongside a slightly larger than expected November Philly Fed drop to a still-solid 22.7 from 27.9, with a larger ISM-adjusted drop to 56.7 from 59.7. We also saw an unexpected 10k initial claims bounce to 249k in the Veteran’s Day week, though this week kicks-off the period of heightened volatility that extends through the MLK weekend. The October trade price figures proved weaker than expected despite oil import and food export price gains, perhaps partly due to the October bounce in the value of the dollar combined with some unwind of a prior hurricane-boost. The net upside surprise for the day’s reports was reinforced by a 2-point bounce in the NAHB index to 70, and a rise in the weekly Bloomberg consumer comfort index to 52.1 from 51.5.
