    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 26th June 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: Treasury yields moved back up from lows, 10-year JGBs are also slightly higher as the stock sell off started to fade during the Asian session. 10-year Treasury yields are now up 0.5 bp on the day at 2.886% and 10-year JGB yields are up 0.7 bp at 0.026%. The escalating round of trade and investment restrictions continue to hang over markets, but at least for now investors seem to be taking a breather. Japanese stock markets reversed early losses as gains in banks offset declines in technology and telecoms. Topix and Nikkei are up 0.25% and 0.12% respectively. The Hang Seng gained 0.21% and while the CSI 300 is still down -0.57%, the Shenzen Comp is up 0.66%. US stock futures are also moving higher after sharp losses on Wall Street yesterday. Oil prices are up and the WTI is trading at USD 68.30 per barrel.

    FX Update: The main currencies are showing little net change ahead of the London interbank open. EURUSD edged a fresh 12-day high, at 1.1721, before ebbing back to near net unchanged levels nearer 1.1700. USDJPY has become directionally stuck near 109.50, above the 2-week low that was pegged yesterday at 109.37. The yen’s safe-haven bid of yesterday ran out of puff, while BoJ board member Sakurai said, also yesterday, (from Rome) that it remained “essential” for the central bank to conduct monetary policy “under the current framework for the time being.” By “current framework” he meant a short-time interest rate target of -0.1% and pegging of the 10-year JGB yield at near 0% (the curve control policy), alongside its QQE program. The stock market sell-off has abated in Asia. Japan’s Nikkei 225 managed to close with a fractional 0.2% gain, while S&P 500 futures are showing modest gains. President Trump’s trade advisor Navarro said that the Trump administration just wants “free, fair, and reciprocal trade…the mission here is to defend our technology and IP.”

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 27th June 2018.




      FX News Today

      Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields lost earlier gains and are unchanged at 2.877%, 10-year JGB yields are up 0.3 bp at 0.027%, while yields elsewhere mostly declined as stocks struggled for direction with trade concerns continuing to hang over markets. Japanese indexes moved up from lows and are at -0.21% and -0.07% respectively. The Hang Seng meanwhile is down -0.73% and the CSI 300 down -1.59% as the Yuan continued to weaken offshore amid fears that China’s liquidity squeeze will lead to corporate bond defaults in 2H, and the drive for deleveraging is limiting lending and pushing up borrowing costs. Energy companies were supported by an ongoing rise in oil prices. The front-end USOil future rose to a high of USD 70.98, and is currently at USD 70.71 per barrel, amid reports the US is pushing allies to halt imports of Iranian crude. US stock futures are also down.

      FX Update: USDJPY has traded moderately lower, back under 110.00, after posting a three-session peak at 110.22. The pair was lifted by post-Tokyo fix demand, rising to 110.20, before selling overwhelmed and turned the Dollar lower. The Yen is also firmer against other currencies as stock markets ebb back again after yesterday’s reprieve. AUDJPY, a cross with relatively high beta characteristics that has been sensitive to the deepening trade spat, is down over 0.3%, earlier printing an eight-day low at 80.81. As for USDJPY, the pair is about at the halfway mark of the broadly sideways range that’s been seen over the last six weeks. USDJPY has Resistance at 110.20-22, levels which encompass recent daily highs. The net directionless path is illustrated by the flat profiles of both the 20- and 50-day moving averages, which are presently sandwiching prevailing levels, being respectively situated at 110.05 and 109.65. Fundamentally the picture would be a bullish one (divergent Fed versus BoJ policy paths) were it not for the safe-haven premium being installed in the Japanese currency amid the backdrop of rising trade protectionism.

        FX News Today

        European Fixed Income Outlook: Asian stock markets traded mixed in Asia and trade jitters continue to weigh on sentiment after White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said the decision to use less harsh measures on Chinese investment than feared did not represent a softer tone in the lingering trade tensions. Topix and Nikkei are mixed at -0.20% and +0.05% respectively. The Hang Seng is up 0.37% and the CSI 300 down -0.02%. US Stock Futures are moving higher, after a negative close on Wednesday and 10-year Treasury yields are up 1.1 bp at 2.836%, while 10-year JGB yields are up 0.1 bp at 0.024%. Emerging market currencies remained under pressure and oil prices are down on the day, but still trading above USD 72 per barrel.

        Reserve Bank of New Zealand held rates at 1.75%, matching widespread expectations for no change. The bank said the cash rate will remain at 1.75% “for now.” But they “are well positioned to manage change in either direction — up or down — as necessary.” Recall that in May, Governor Orr said the rate would remain at its current setting “for some time to come.” The Bank remains on hold, with recent soft data delaying the start of rate hikes further into next year.

          MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 02nd July 2018.




          THE ECONOMIC WEEK AHEAD

          Trade and tariffs remained in the headlines through Q2 and along with political jitters, caused global consternation. And with the US’s July 6 deadline for collection of additional duties on Chinese products, tariffs will remain the center of attention. Behind the scenes however, US growth has picked up steam as the stimulative effects from deregulation, tax reform and fiscal measures start to take hold and overshadow the noise. While it looks as though Q3 will start off on the same footing as Q2, the big questions for the markets will be whether the trade skirmishes escalate, and whether US momentum can support growth over the rest of the world.

          United States: It’s an important week in the US. Along with the July 4 Independence Day holiday, there are the month’s key releases. Additionally, July 6 is the deadline for tariffs on 818 lines of about $34 bln of Chinese goods. The data slate is headlined by the June jobs report, as well as manufacturing and services PMIs, vehicle sales, and trade. The FOMC minutes of the June 12, 13 meeting will provide extra insight on the shift to a more hawkish stance.

          The June nonfarm payroll report (Friday) is expected to show a solid 200k increase in jobs after the 223k gain in May, while the jobless rate should hold steady at a low 3.8%. There’s ongoing controversy over the degree of slack in the system. On Monday, the ISM should slip to 58.0 in June, from May’s 58.7. Despite the expected decline, the index remains solid and not too far off from the 14-year high of 60.8 in February. The light vehicle sales (Tuesday) expected to rise to a 17.0 mln rate in June from 16.8 mln in May, with autos at 5.3 mln and trucks at 9.0 mln, versus respective rates of 5.2 and 8.9 mln in May. The May supply – disruption for truck assemblies from a fire at a parts supplier may disrupt truck sales in June and July, though more generally truck sales continue to drive vehicle sales. The May Trade Deficit (Friday) should narrow to -$43.5 bln, from -$46.2 bln in April and a cycle high -$55.5 bln in February, given the Advance Goods Trade Balance narrowing to -$68.2 bln.

          Canada: Canada’s data docket contains two key reports that will inform the outlook for the Bank of Canada announcement next week. Employment (Friday) is seen rising 25.0k in June after the 7.5k drop in May and 1.1k dip in April. The unemployment rate is expected to hold at a 40-year low 5.8%. The trade deficit is expected to widen to -C$2.2 bln in May from -C$1.9 bln in April. The June Ivey PMI (Friday) is anticipated to slide to a still expansionary 61.0 from 62.5 in May. Employment and trade in line with estimates would support the expectation that the Bank of Canada will lift rates 25 basis points to 1.50% in the July 11 announcement. Markit Canada manufacturing PMI for June is due on Tuesday. The markets are closed Monday in observation of the Canada Day holiday.

          Europe: With the ECB having effectively clarified the policy path well into the second half of next year, and the important June summit out of the way without the new Italian government blowing up the party, the markets should be settling into a slower summer mood in a week that includes largely secondary data releases. So for now, market volatility is likely to continue adding to pressures on the ECB to revamp the rules on re-investment as it prepares to phase out net asset purchases by the end of the year.

          Data releases are unlikely to change the overall picture significantly. The final readings on June PMIs are expected to confirm preliminary readings of 55.0 for both the Manufacturing (Monday) as well as the Services reading (Wednesday), which should leave the composite on course to be confirmed at 54.8. Readings still point to ongoing robust growth across both sectors and Markit reported with the preliminary numbers that part of the recent slowdown was indeed due to capacity constraints with delivery times lengthening. Meanwhile, German manufacturing orders (Thursday) are expected to rebound 1.0% m/m from the 2.5% m/m decline in April and industrial production is seen to pick up 0.2% m/m, after -1.0% m/m.

          Events include ECBspeak from Weidmann (Thursday) as well as Nouy (Friday) and bond auctions in Spain and France on Thursday.

          UK: The calendar brings the June Markit PMI surveys, with the manufacturing PMI (Monday) anticipated at 54.0, down from 54.4 in May. Evidence suggests that the slowing in economic growth across the channel have been crimping export performance in the manufacturing sector. The construction PMI (Tuesday) is expected to arrive with an unchanged 52.5 headline reading, and anticipate the services PMI (Wednesday) to also hold unchanged, at 54.0. In-line data should keep the BoE on its gradualist tightening course, with markets looking for a 25 bp hike in the repo rate at the August MPC meeting.

          Japan: The May personal income and PCE (Friday) should show spending contracting further to a -1.7% y/y clip, from the prior -1.3% outcome, another worrying sign from the region.

          China: The June Caixin/Markit manufacturing PMI should slip slightly to 51.0 from 51.1. The June services PMI (Wednesday) is penciled in at 52.5 from 52.9. Again such results would add to worries over a slowdown and fears that tariff threats are weighing on sentiment.

          Australia: The RBA’s meeting (Tuesday) casts a long shadow over a busy calendar. No change is expected to the current 1.50% setting for the cash rate target as inflation remains low. The rate has been unchanged since the 25 bp cut in August 2016. The economic data docket is full this week. Building permits (Tuesday) are projected to bounce 2.0% in May (m/m, sa) after the 5.0% drop in April. May retail shipment values (Wednesday) are expected to rise 0.2% (m/m, sa) following the 0.4% gain in April. The trade surplus (Wednesday) is seen at A$1.3 bln in May from A$1.0 bln in April.

            MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 3rd July 2018.




            FX News Today

            European Fixed Income Outlook: A mixed picture on bond markets, while US stock futures recovered earlier losses and are moving higher, in tandem with UK100 futures after markets continued to struggle with trade angst during the Asian session. Germany’s Merkel managed to find a last minute compromise with Interior Minister Seehofer that will prevent a break up of the union parties – at least for now. The controversy over immigration meanwhile is likely to continue not just in Germany, but across Europe. Today’s calendar has Eurozone Retail Sales and PPI as well as the UK Construction PMI.

            FX Update: The Dollar majors have remained in narrow ranges, overall, though there has still been some movement of note. USDJPY posted a fresh 6-week high of 111.13 before settling lower. Other Yen crosses also saw similar price action with the backdrop of steadying global stock markets seeing the Yen come under some pressure. China’s PBoC once again allowed the Yuan to weaken, with the USDCNY rate this time rising to an 11-month high above 6.6700. China’s central bank is responding to both the impact of US tariffs and broader weakness in emerging market currencies. The Australian Dollar rallied moderately, partly amid the rebound in stock markets and partly on RBA’s policy statement, which, while remaining distinctly neutral overall, was perhaps a little more sanguine than some market participants had expected regarding the risks stemming from a slower, tariff-afflicted Chinese economy. RBA left the cash rate at 1.50%, as had been widely anticipated. AUDUSD posted a high of 0.7365, a gain of over 30 pips from Monday’s closing levels. EURUSD has lifted back to the 1.1650 area, extending the rebound from yesterday’s 1.1591 low but so far remaining below yesterday’s high.

              Asian Market Wrap: Treasury futures declined in thin volumes, while cash markets are shut for a US holiday. Japan’s 30 year yield dropped below 0.7% as Asian market remained shaky, with Chinese Indices continuing to underperform despite the commitment to a stronger Yuan, as the start of the first round of US tariffs on Friday weighs on sentiment.

Stock markets in Asia mostly declined, following a tech-led drop on Wall Street yesterday.

AUDUSD posted a 7-session high at 0.7424. A record high reading in the Australian June Services PMI, which jumped 4 points to 63.0, gave the Aussie a bid, along with the firming in the Yuan. EURUSD meanwhile, clawed out a 2-session high of 1.1678. Conditions will be thin and direction commitment limited today with US Markets closed for the 4th of July holiday.

                FX News Today

                Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Bund yields are up 1.3 bp at 1.315% in opening trade, the 2-year is up 2.1 bp at -0.652%. 10-year Treasury yields are up 1.6 bp after returning from holiday and strong German manufacturing orders as well as Bloomberg source stories suggesting at least some ECB officials see a rate hike in September/October next year, i.e. earlier than current market pricing, will be adding to pressure especially at the short end this morning. Peripherals are outperforming slightly and GER30 and UK100 futures are higher in line with US futures in opening trade. After the release of German orders at the start of the session, the calendar still has Swiss CPI, BoE’s Carney, as well as ECB’s Weidmann and supply from Spain and France.

                FX Update: The Euro is opening Europe firmly, with EURUSD testing the week’s highs at 1.1690-91, EURJPY posting two-day highs above 129.35 and EURCHF ascending into 3-week high territory. The Dollar, outside the case against the Euro, has been trading neutrally, including against most emerging world currencies. The PBoC continued to rein in the yuan, with the offshore USDCNY rate of 6.6478-80 holding below Tuesday’s 11-month low seen at 6.7344. USDJPY continued to orbit the 110.50 level. The stability in currencies belies a heightened state of concern about trade protectionism, with the US on Friday set to implement tariffs on $34 bln of Chinese imports, although equity market weakness, especially in China-focused issues, have taken a whack today.

                  MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 9th July 2018.




                  Main Macro Events This Week

                  The US June jobs report was another “Goldilocks” set of numbers for the markets, drawing back in workers from the ranks of the long-term unemployed. Broadbased strength in employment not only helped Wall Street rally but the surge in the labor force and tame wage gain allowed Treasury yields to drift lower, since the report offered no incentive for the FOMC to deviate from its “gradual pace” of normalization. Looking forward, inflation data will dominate in the week ahead, with the Fed comfortably close to its 2% target now. The Fed will also release its Monetary Policy Report on Friday with Chairman Powell’s key follow-up semi-annual testimony on July 17.

                  United States: The US Economic calendar will zero in on inflation statistics for the week of July 9. Modest gains in the CPI and PPI are expected, with the y/y readings remaining above the Fed’s 2% target given hard comparisons. The Import Price Index may reveal weakness related to declining oil prices in the month, but export prices should post a modest gain. Consumer Credit (Monday) is projected to rise $12.0 bln in May, following a $9.3 bln gain in April. JOLTS job openings are due (Tuesday). Headline CPI (Wednesday) is expected to rise 0.2% in June, following a similar gain in May, while core prices are estimated to rise 0.2% as well, the same as in May. Wholesale inventories are expected to rise 0.5% in May (Wednesday), as revealed in the advance report, following a 0.1% gain in the prior month, and sales are estimated to rise 0.5% as well, after a 0.8% gain in April. CPI is forecast to rise 0.2% in June (Thursday), following a similar gain in May. Core prices are estimated to rise 0.2% as well, the same as in May. Initial jobless claims are estimated to fall 18k to 213k in the week ended July 7 (Thursday), reflecting an expected early-July drop related to auto retooling, and the Treasury budget gap may hit to -$133 bln in June. A 0.2% decline is expected in the Import Price Index in June (Friday), due to crude oil weakness, following a 0.6% gain in May, while export prices are expected to continue to move up 0.1%.

                  Fedspeak kicks back into gear with just a week to go before Chairman Powell’s semi-annual testimony, which will be preceded by the Monetary Policy Report (MPR) on Friday, July 13 at 11:00 ET.

                  Canada: Canada is focused squarely on the BoC meeting (Wednesday), which it is expected to result in a 25 basis point boost to a 1.50% rate setting. The accompanying monetary policy report should be consistent with additional rate increases, but at a gradual pace. The focus will be on Bank’s view on the ongoing trade/tariff issues, labor market slack and the inflation outlook. A housing-heavy data docket will be an afterthought this week. Housing starts (Tuesday) are expected to moderate to a 190.0k pace in June from 195.6k in May. Building permit values are seen dropping 2.0% in May after the 4.6% contraction in April. The New Home Price Index (Thursday) is projected to reveal a 0.1% dip (m/m, sa) in May after the flat reading in April. Existing home sales for June are expected on Friday. The Teranet/National Bank Housing Price Index for June is also scheduled for Thursday.

                  Europe: ECB tried to inject calm and prevent rate hike expectations from running ahead when it pledged to keep key rates steady through the summer of next year. But with growth indicators confirming that the recovery is not dead yet and inflation jumping higher, officials are now trying to regain control especially over the short end. ECB speakers will be important in this context. President Draghi will testify to the European Parliament in Brussels (Monday). It will be interesting to see whether he backs recent “source” stories suggesting ECB is eyeing the first rate hike in September/October next year, which would also be the last meetings for Draghi as President.

                  Final Eurozone June inflation data is expected to confirm the German HICP rate (Thursday) at 2.1% y/y. The French reading (Tuesday) also is at a 2.1% y/y rate which should leave the overall Eurozone number (due July 18) on course to be confirmed at 2.0% y/y. German data in particular bounced back strongly with May production and orders figures. Yet, while ongoing political uncertainty and risks of an escalating trade war have weighed on some confidence measures, there is some room for an upside surprise in German ZEW confidence (Tuesday). Still, this is investor confidence data which is more impacted by uncertainties and concerns about political events and at least the latest real sector numbers out of Germany have been very encouraging. Indeed, after German production growth was reported at 2.6% m/m in May, rebounds are expected in French (Tuesday), Italian (Tuesday) and Eurozone Production figures (Thursday). The calendar also has trade data for Germany.

                  UK: The calendar is fairly quiet in terms of economic releases, highlighted by the June BRC Retail Sales survey (Tuesday), and May Industrial Production and Trade data (also Tuesday).

                  The government has — after more than two years from vote-to-leave the EU — finally worked out what it wants from a post-Brexit deal with the EU. This was hammered out in a climactic Cabinet meeting on Friday, which saw the hard Brexiteers give up ground to reach a compromise. The government will seek a “EU-UK free trade area which establishes a common rule book for industrial goods and agricultural products,” which essentially means a single market for goods, along with a “facilitated customs arrangement” to address the need for a frictionless border in Ireland. It remains doubtful that the EU will agree to the free market for goods part, however, having maintained that the UK will not be able to cherry pick which parts of the single market to take part in. It also remains uncertain how effective the proposed frictionless customs arrangement will be. There are now only 5 negotiating weeks left until October, when both the EU and UK are looking to have an agreement in place.

                  Japan: The May Machine Orders (Wednesday) are seen contracting 5.0% m/m, essentially halving the April 10.1% climb. The May Tertiary Industry Index (Wednesday) is pencilled in slipping 0.1% after rising 1.0% in April. June PPI (Wednesday) should warm up to 2.9% y/y from 2.7%. Also slated is the final May reading on Industrial Production (Friday). It declined 0.2% in the preliminary report, after gains of 0.5% in April, 1.4% in March, and 2.0% in February.

                  China: It’s the June Trade Report (Friday) that will be the focal point. Inflation reports are also due with June CPI and PPI (Tuesday). CPI is expected to accelerate a bit to a 2.0% y/y pace versus 1.8% y/y previously, with PPI rising to 4.5% y/y from 4.1%. June loan growth and new Yuan loans are tentatively due Tuesday as well.

                  Australia: In Australia, Housing Investment (Wednesday) features on a thin data docket. A 3.0% drop is expected in May after the 1.4% gain in April. RBA Assistant Governor (Financial System) Bullock speaks at the 5th Bund Summit on Fintech from Shanghai, China (Sunday). The RBA held rates steady last week and maintained expectations for no change for an extended period.

                  New Zealand: Retail Card Spending (Tuesday) is the only release of note and it is expected at a 0.7% gain (m/m) in June after the 0.4% rise in May. At the June meeting, the RBNZ held rates at 1.75% and opened the door to a rate cut if necessary. The next move is expected to be a rate increase. The next meeting is on August 9.

                      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 10th July 2018.




                      FX News Today

                      Asian Market Wrap: Long yields continue to climb and 10-year Treasury yields are up 0.7 bp at 2.864%, 10-year JGBs up 0.6 bp at 0.032% as Stock Markets remained in risk on mode during the Asian session. Nikkei gained 1.09% after a strong close on Wall Street and with the earnings season starting to overshadow lingering trade jitters – at least for now. A weaker Yen added Support. The Hang Seng is up 0.36%, but CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp are down -0.20% and -0.11% respectively after their biggest rally in more than 2 years and as Inflation numbers came in higher than anticipated, but also reflecting lingering trade war concerns ahead of the next round of US tariffs due to be confirmed on July 20. Many expect markets to remain volatile ahead of July 20 – the date for the next set of US levies on Chinese imports. US stock futures are higher, however, and oil prices are up and the WTI future is trading at USD 74.29 per barrel.

                      FX Update: USDJPY has broken above recent range highs and printed a 7-week high at 111.14. EURJPY and other Yen crosses are also up, with EURJPY trading in 7-week high terrain and AUDJPY making 1-month highs. The driver of the yen’s underperformance is the continued rebound in global Stock Markets, although Chinese shares continue to underperform. The solid US jobs report last Friday and expectations for a strong corporate earnings season have been buoying equities, and while the shift toward trade protectionism remains at the top of the worry list of investors, the level of implemented tariffs so far is small in the scheme of things. BoJ Governor Kuroda yesterday repeated that the central bank will remain committed to ultra-accommodative monetary policy, including yield-curve control, until inflation hits the 2% target. USDJPY has Support at 110.88-90 while the May-21 high at 111.39, which is the highest level seen since mid January, provides an upside waypoint.

                      * UK Production Data – Expectations – Industrial production expected to rebound by 0.5% m/m after contracting by 0.8% m/m in the month prior, while we see the narrower manufacturing output figure rising 0.8% m/m after declining by 1.4% m/m in April.
                      * UK Trade Balance – Expectations – expected to fall to 11.9B from 14.0B last month.

                      * German ZEW – Expectations – July investor sentiment reading anticipated at -18.0 down from -16.1 in June, confirming that pessimists still outnumber optimists.

                        MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 11th July 2018.




                        FX News Today

                        European Fixed Income Outlook: The 10-year Bund yield is trading at 0.3598% as of 06:12 GMT, down from a close of 0.3672% on Tuesday. Safe haven flows are once again underpinning core Bond Markets and 10-year Treasury yields are down 1.5 bp at 2.834%, after a Trump announced a fresh round of tariffs on Chinese imports and reloaded the trade war threat. Stock markets sold off across Asia and European Futures are also heading south in tandem with US Futures. With little on the European data calendar, trade jitters are likely to remain the main focus in markets, although many expect investors to quickly start to focus on the earnings season again after the initial sharp reaction. Germany and Italy are set to sell Bonds today and there are a number of ECB speakers including president Draghi.

                        FX Update: The Dollar majors have traded in narrow ranges so far today amid a tone of heightened caution as stock markets take a fresh tumble, led by Chinese bourses, due to another ratchet in trade warning tensions between the US and China. US Index Futures have also seen hefty declines. USDJPY has settled lower, near the 111.0 mark, after printing a 7-week high at 111.35 yesterday, while AUDJPY, a relatively high beta cross, is down quite sharply, by over 0.6%. AUDUSD is down by a similar magnitude. Most emerging market currencies have also come under pressure against the Dollar, giving back some of their rebound gains seen in recent sessions. EURUSD has lifted back above 1.1700, rebounding from yesterday’s three-session low at 1.1690. The pair has been trading in a broadly sideways, at times choppy, range for over a month now, and more of the same is anticipated.

                          MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 12th July 2018.




                          FX News Today

                          Asian Market Wrap: Long yields moved higher as risk appetite improved. The 10-year Treasury yield is up 0.9 bp at 2.858% and the 10-year JGB yield is up 0.3 bp at 0.032%. Asian stock markets meanwhile recovered from yesterday’s slump, with Chinese markets outperforming as trade jitters abated somewhat as Chinese and U.S. officials reportedly flagged the prospect of returning to talks, with China’s Vice Minister of Commerce calling for bilateral negotiations to resolve the conflict. BoK’s decision to leave the 7-day repo rate unchanged at 1.50%, as expected had little impact. Nikkei and Topix are up 0.54% and 1.23% respectively, with a weaker Yen underpinning gains. The Hang Seng gained 1.00% and the CSI 300 is up 2.57%. US Futures are moving higher and the WTI Future is up from a low of EUR 70.60, but at USD 70.80 still considerably below recent levels.

                          German June HICP confirmed at 2.1% y/y, as expected. There were no real surprises in the data, which confirmed that higher energy prices are a key reason for the overshoot in the headline rate above ECB’s target. Heating oil prices rose 30.3% y/y, after 24.3% y/y in the previous month and petrol price inflation accelerated to 11.3% y/y from 8.2% y/y. Still, with the labour market looking tight and companies facing capacity constraints the room for a second round of effects to emerge is clearly larger than it was a year ago, which may explain why some at the ECB are nervous about markets pushing out rate hike expectations too far back.
