Sharp selloffs on European Open.




Wall Street losses persisted through the Friday session, with the major indices all ending lower. Stocks got a brief boost from the stronger US retail sales data, though the dive in consumer sentiment, including upped inflation concerns, took the wind out of the rally’s sails.

Today, in the Asia session and on European open:

  • The 10-year Treasury yield was down and bonds were also supported, with Australia’s 10-year down -4.4 bp at 1.233%, as stocks were hit by growth concerns.
  • The September 10-year Bund future is up 42 ticks at 175.29, outperforming versus Treasury futures. GER30 and FTSE 100 futures are down -0.6% and -0.8% respectively.
  • Reuters – Japan kept the overall assessment of its economy unchanged for a second straight month in July, retaining the view that conditions remain severe due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Tech stocks struggled. – China’s crackdown on Tech giants , , and
  • Reports of issues with Japan’s supply chain have been noted, with suppliers in countries such as Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam falling behind on production due to Covid shutdowns.
  • Zoom Video Communications Inc ZM.O, the videoconferencing service that became a household name globally during the pandemic, plans to parlay some of the resulting rise in its share price into a $14.7 billion acquisition to secure growth.
  • Oil prices declined on oversupply worries – OPEC and its allies agreed to ease output restrictions and supply cuts, including Russia which agreed new production allocations and a gradual phasing out of supply cuts, that will increase supply by around 400K barrels.
  • Focus will remain on the Covid spread around the region with the Delta variant continuing to cause worries.

FX markets: In FX markets the Yen was supported by safe haven demand, and USDJPY dropped back to 109.84, although the Dollar climbed against most other currencies. EURUSD is little changed at 1.1803, while Cable dropped to 1.3746. AUD hit its lowest level in 2021, at 0.7372. USOIL stayed at the $70.60-$71.60 barrier. Gold edged higher, lifted by a retreat in US Treasury yields and concerns that a surge in coronavirus cases could dampen global economic recovery, though an uptick in the Dollar limited the safe-haven metal’s appeal.



Today – The calendar is pretty empty to start the week, hence growth concerns are dominating and developments will add to expectations that the ECB will strengthen the dovish tone of the forward guidance at Thursday’s council meeting.

Biggest mover @ (8:30 GMT) CADJPY (-0.66%). The Yen was supported by safe haven demand, while CAD dips on USOIL weakness. An aggressive selloff of CADJPY broke all Support levels for the day with next Support at 86 and 200-day SMA at 85.78.

Risk sensitive assets plummet on recovery fears!




Risk off trades continued to dominate the Asian part of the session, but there are signs of stabilisation.

Stocks declined as fears that the rapid spread of the Delta variant will delay re-openings and force extended lockdowns in countries with lower vaccination rates continue to fuel risk aversion. Investors will be keeping a very close eye on virus developments, but speculation that market developments will delay central bank tapering plans should put a floor under markets that have corrected from very high levels.

Today, in the Asia session and on European open:

  • Bond markets continued to play catch up with the sharp rally in Treasuries yesterday. Australia’s 10-year rate is down -6.2 bp , New Zealand’s has corrected -7.8 bp and China’s 10-year bond is -1.5 bp richer.
  • Japan’s CPI rate nudged higher in June, with core lifting to 0.2%. Data are not expected to change the course of the BoJ.
  • Developer slumped after local authorities halted some of its sales.
  • US futures are down and in cash markets the 10-year Treasury rate has lifted 1.1 bp to 1.200%. – Currently the USA100 has rebounded with 0.4% gains.
  • September 10-year Bund future is little changed. – GER30 and UK100 futures are up 0.3% and 0.2% respectively.
  • German PPI inflation lifted to 8.5% y/y in June – remains mainly driven by developments in commodity prices.
  • RBA minutes: Strengthen rather than taper QE as stock markets continue to sell off.
  • In Australia, nearly half the country’s 25 million people are living under lockdowns to quell an outbreak of the Delta variant.
  • US yield curve continues to steepen. JPMorgan’s HuiP: “reflects reduced inflation expectations if reopening is delayed and potential downside risk to the economy, but that value and cyclical sectors should continue to outperform over the next 6-12 months given the ongoing recovery globally.”
Today’s data calendar in Europe and the US remains pretty quiet, with US housing starts, while neither German PPI nor Eurozone current account numbers are likely to change the outlook much.


FX markets: In FX markets the USD remained supported by safe haven bids and EURUSD dipped to 1.1773, while GBPUSD is at 1.3647 crossing the 200-day SMA. Safe-harbour currencies like the JPY and USD traded near multi-month highs against the riskier AUD, NZD and GBP. USDJPY is little changed at 109.35-109.60. USOIL prices stabilised at 66.50.



Key mover: USOIL – Oil prices stabilised on Tuesday after slumping around 7%. The aggressive selloff of USOIL was fueled by worries about future demand and after an OPEC+ agreement to increase supply. The contract for August, which expires later on today, was up 15% at $66.57 a barrel.

Market Update – July 23 – USD & Equities move higher.




Market News Today – USD dipped following ECB & weak US data but has recovered as USDIndex eyes 93.00 again & a “Golden Cross”. EUR 1.1770, JPY 110.30, Cable 1.3750. Equities struggled but ended up, USA500 (+0.20%), Strong Earnings #TWTR. Yields held gains 1.265%. Virus concerns continue to weigh, US Republicans now encouraging vaccinations. USOil breached & broke $70.00, Gold back over $1800. Overnight – JPY closed until Monday, shares in Asia struggled to follow US higher, AUD PMI data at 14-mth lows (50% of popn. in lockdown) & UK Retail Sales data beat as restrictions continue to ease and football was supposed to come Home.

ECB – Negative Rates Are Here to Stay – ECB tweaked its rate guidance yesterday which resulted in an even stronger signal that the bank expects this year’s inflation overshoot to be temporary. The marginally higher inflation target & refined hurdles for rate hikes have pushed an exit from negative rates even further into the future, but doesn’t necessarily clarify the outlook on asset purchases & PEPP. The focus on the forward guidance may actually signal a shift back from asset purchase targets to rates as the main signal for the ECB’s policy stance.

European Open – The September 10-year Bund future is down -3 ticks, Treasury futures are slightly underperforming. DAX and FTSE 100 futures meanwhile are up 0.3% and US futures are posting similar gains. The ECB’s affirmation of its ultra-accommodative policy stance and the strengthening of the guidance on rates should continue to keep sentiment underpinned. ECB’s Villeroy also stressed this morning that it was perfectly justified to stick with accommodative settings for now, but also indicated that the central bank will look at asset purchases again in September. For now though virus developments and the rapid spread of the Delta variant is likely to keep a lid on growth optimism.

Today – Flash Eurozone, UK & US PMIs, CBR Rate Decision, Canadian Retail Sales. Earnings from Danske Bank, American Express and Honeywell.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) NZDCHF (+0.21%) 4th day of big move from lows of 0.6330 on Tuesday, to test 20-Day MA (0.6417) today. Breached 21EMA yesterday, faster MAs aligned higher, RSI 59 and rising, MACD signal line & histogram rising & significantly above 0 line. H1 ATR 0.0008, Daily ATR 0.0064.

Always trade with strict risk management. Your capital is the single most important aspect of your trading business.
