MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 31st October 2018.




FX News Today

Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are up 1.3 bp at 3.136%, the 10-year JGB yield is up 0.5 bp at 0.115%. BoJ left policy unchanged and kept the 10-year bond yield target at about zero as the revised forecasts show inflation below target for years to come. Inflation came in lower than expected in Australia, and China’s manufacturing activity is feeling the strain of the trade war with the US and the manufacturing PMI fell back to just 50.2, effectively signalling stagnation. Despite this Asian stock markets moved mostly higher and are bound to end the month on a more positive note, although this is still to be the worst month for global equities in more than 6 years. China’s overnight Repo rate surged amid official efforts to stem bets against the Yuan. Earnings reports remain in focus ahead of Apple results and Friday’s US jobs reports. Buyers may be attracted by cheaper valuations, but trade concerns continue to cloud over sentiment. Topix and Nikkei are up 2.15% and 2.16% respectively, the Hang Seng gained 0.99% and Shanghai and Shenzhen Comp are up 1.26% and 1.48%. The ASX underperformed, but is also up 0.43%, as are US stock futures.

European Fixed Income Outlook: December 10-year Bund future opened at 160.20, down from a close of 160.44 yesterday. The 10-year cash yield is up 1.1 bp at 0.378% in opening trade, despite weaker than expected German retail sales data at the start of the session. BTPs are coming back from yesterday’s slump and the reversal of safe haven flows are adding to the general trend of rising yields at the long end as stock markets seem intent on ending a disastrous month on a more positive note. Treasury and JGB yields also moved higher, UK stock futures are rising with US futures after a largely positive session in Asia. Today’s calendar still has Eurozone inflation and labour market data as well as ECB speakers and Spanish GDP numbers.

Charts of the Day

* Euro CPI and Core – Expectations – Eurozone HICP seen lifting to 2.2% y/y from 2.1% y/y in September.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 2nd November 2018.




FX News Today

Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are up 3.8 bp at 3.168%, 10-year JGB yields jumped 1.2 bp to 0.121% as Asian shares rallied on trade hopes. Bloomberg reported that Trump is seeking to reach a trade deal with China at the G20 meeting in Argentina later this month and has asked officials to begin drafting potential terms, with other reports suggesting that intellectual property rights are a key sticking point. Apple warned that sales for the crucial holiday quarter may miss expectations, but this was shrugged off amid hopes of a trade deal, which together with yesterday’s pledge from Chinese officials to support demand saw Topix and Nikkei gaining 1.64% and 2.56% respectively. The Hang Seng outperformed and was up 3.66% as of 6:08 GMT. The CSI also rose 3% and Shanghai and Shenzhen Comp gained 2.20% and 2.86%. US stock futures are also higher and oil prices reached a high of USD 63.95 per barrel, before falling back to now USD 63.81.

FX Update: The Dollar and the Yen have traded generally weaker against most other currencies amid a backdrop of strongly-rebounding global stock markets. An ease between the US and China on trade, along with overall decent corporate earnings, mostly firm US data this week, and a plethora of stock-boosting measures by Beijing, have collectively elicited a rebound in stock markets. USDJPY has recouped to the 113.00 area, though Yen crosses have generally rallied by bigger magnitudes. The biggest percentage gainer has been AUDJPY, which has gained over 0.7% in what is now its sixth consecutive up day. EURUSD has rallied a third consecutive up day, posting a 9-day high of 1.1440 so far. The AUDUSD pegged a 5-week high at 0.7250, and USDCAD descended to an 8-day low at 1.3053, despite another sharp leg low in oil prices yesterday, which sent WTI benchmark prices to 7-month lows near $63.00.

Charts of the Day



Main Macro Events Today

* Euro Manufacturing PMI – Expectations – Eurozone PMI is expected to remain unchanged.

* UK Construction PMI – Expectations – The October Construction PMI is expected to slip slightly by 52.00 after the 52.1 expansion seen in September.

* Canadian Employment Change and Trade Balance – Expectations – The employment should post a 15.0k gain in October jobs, following the 63.3k rise in September. The pace of wage growth is expected to slow further. The trade surplus is anticipated to narrow slightly to C$0.4 bln in September from C$0.5 bln in August.

* US Non-Farm Payrolls – Expectations – The October US employment expect to see a 194k headline for the month with a 195k private employment figure and unemployment holding steady at 3.7% for a second month. No disruption is expected from the landfalls of hurricanes Michael and Florence but the timing of these two events means that the impact on October payrolls will likely be offsetting.
