      Equity futures boosted further from US data.



      The Dollar rose following the better industrial production figures and Retail sales, leaving EURUSD at session lows of 1.1268 from 1.1285, and USDJPY at session highs of 107.51 from 107.45.

      US industrial production rebounded 1.4% in May, shy of expectations, following a downwardly revised -12.5% (was -11.2%) in April, which is a record decline (data go back to 1919. This broke a string of two monthly declines and brought capacity utilization up to 64.8% from 64.0% (was 64.9%); the historic low of 66.7% was set in June 2009. Manufacturing production rose 3.8% versus -15.5% (was -13.7%) thanks to a 120.8% pop in vehicles and parts following a record -76.5% (was -71.7%) April plunge.

      US retail sales bounced 17.7% in May, with sales excluding autos jumping 12.4%, both record increases and nearly double expectations. Those follow declines of -14.7% (was -16.4%) and -15.2% (was -17.2%), respectively. Compared to last year, the contraction rate has slowed to -7.7%, with the ex-auto rate at -8.1%, versus double digit rates rates of declines previously.

      However Equity futures remain in focus as they continue to indicate a sharply higher Wall Street open, while yields, particularly at the long end of the curve are higher. US equity futures are rallying since overnight session, as risk appetite soared amid firming expectations for yet more massive stimulus globally.

      Currently the USA30 is 1.9% higher, the USA500 is up 1.4% and the USA100 has improved 1.3% in pre-market trading. Wall Street rallied into the close yesterday, coming back from sizable losses earlier in the session, following an announcement from the Fed that the bank would begin purchasing individual corporate bonds beginning today. Reports that the US is planning a $1 tln infrastructure program have added to optimism. Meanwhile, the BoJ kept rates steady but extended its lending program, keeping the stimulus taps wide open.

      Finally, prospects for a EU and UK compromise agreement on a future trade relationship are seen as on the rise. While equities are wildly enthusiastic about stimulus, worries continue to fester over a second wave of COVID-19 as governments increasing relax restrictions to reopen economies. However, news of the first life-saving coronavirus drug, reported by the BBC, has added to the equity rally.

      Date : 18th June 2020.

      Central Banks keep markets choppy.



      The SNB held rate settings unchanged at the June policy review, as widely expected. The central bank said in a statement that the “expansionary monetary policy remains necessary to ensure appropriate monetary conditions in Switzerland“. To this extent “and in light of the highly valued Swiss franc it remains willing to intervene more strongly in the foreign exchange market”. Under the SNB Covid-19 refinancing facility (CRF) the bank is also providing the banking system with additional liquidity. Not surprisingly the bank stressed that growth and inflation forecasts come with an unusually high degree of uncertainty at the moment, but under that proviso the bank projects CPI to fall to -0.7% this year and remain negative at -0.2% in 2021 before lifting to 0.2% in 2022. This is based on the assumption that the policy rate remains at -0.75%, which highlights that negative rates are unlikely to disappear any time soon.

      SNB is sticking to aggressive fx intervention as the main tool to fight the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. SNB chief Jordan stressed that the currency is “highly valued” and repeated that the central bank will continue to sell it as needed. The bank now expects a contraction in economic activity of 6% this year, the most severe recession since 1970. Inflation forecasts were also cut but while the central bank maintains a dovish bias and previously said rates can be tweaked further, it is pretty clear that officials are reluctant to go below the current level of -0.75% for the key policy rate. Negative for longer remains the main message.

      Low for Longer is also the message for Norges Bank. Norges Bank left its policy rate unchanged at zero percent. Norway’s central bank said in a statement that “the committee’s current assessment of the outlook and balance of risks suggests that the policy rate will most likely remain at today’s level for some time ahead”. Lower for longer then is the main message as the pandemic leads to a “sharp downturn in the Norwegian economy”. The statement did say that since the May meeting “activity has picked up faster than expected”, “unemployment has fallen more than anticipated and oil prices have risen”, but despite this activity remains “substantially lower than at the start of the year”. There is also still “considerable uncertainty surrounding the path to recovery”. Against that background the bank argues that “low interest rates are contributing to speeding up the return to more normal output and employment levels”. Norges Bank’s latest policy rate forecast “implies a rate at the current level of the next couple of years, followed by a gradual rise as economic conditions normalise”.

      Nonetheless, after today’s SNB conference, the bank is clearly trying to prevent a “disproportionately” strong Swiss franc. That said, as the Swiss franc came under strong upward pressure due to search for safe havens and as it still remains highly valued according to SNB, the Swiss franc is expected to face a limited appreciation as SNB maintained that they will keep intervening strongly to limit the appreciation of the Swiss franc – as they have been doing over the past few months already.

      As for today the conference looks to be an uneventful event as CHF has kept steady and USDCHF has stalled since the Asia session within the 0.9481-0.9500 area, while EURCHF has been consolidating between 1.0667 – 1.0689 for 6 consecutive hours.

      FX Update – June 19 – Mixed Markets.


      Trading Leveraged Products is risky

      Narrow ranges have been prevailing among Dollar pairings and cross rates against a backdrop of uncertainty in global markets. Most stock markets have lifted out of lows over the last day, though many indices still remain below highs seen earlier in the week. China’s CSI managed to edge out a three-and-a-half-month high, but Japan’s Nikkei and South Korea’s KOSPI, while posting moderate gains, remained below highs from earlier in the week. S&P 500 futures gained 0.5%, but remained off yesterday’s highs.



      In Forex markets, EURUSD has settled to a consolidation of recent losses, holding a narrow range in the lower 1.1200s, above the 16-day low seen yesterday at 1.1185. USDJPY has been plying a narrow range in the upper 106.00s, holding above yesterday’s one-week low at 106.67. Cable, amid its second week of declines, has steadied in the mid 1.2400s, above yesterday’s 18-day low at 1.2401. EURGBP concurrently settled off its three-week high, seen Thursday, at 0.9044. Both AUDUSD and AUDJPY have been posting narrow ranges well within the confines of their respective Thursday highs and lows. The Canadian Dollar posted modest gains, although USDCAD remained within its previous-day range.



      USOil prices printed a nine-day peak at $39.69, buoyed by news that the OPEC+ group agreed to meet their supply cut quotas, along with major oil traders saying that demand is recovering, although both these items should already have been largely factored in. USOil has failed to close over $40.00 since the early days of March. Gold continues to hold over the key $1725.00 zone, and test the $1730 area, in early European trades.

      European stock markets are modestly higher in early trades too, with the GER30 up 0.5%, the UK100 0.3%. US futures are now posting gains of 0.4-0.6% and the 10-year Treasury yield is up from overnight lows at 0.71% – up 0.5 bp on the day.

      Taking a step back, global market sentiment is grappling with glass-half-empty and glass-half-full arguments. There are signs of new waves of coronavirus infections as economies reopen, which has already seen social restrictions being introduced in some places (such as in Beijing and California). Geopolitical issues remain wildcards. President Trump, for instance, said yesterday that the US could complete a “decoupling” from China. On the “half full” side, there is the expectation that the massive stimulus by global central banks is primed to give risk assets a major boost.

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

      Events to Look Out for This Week.




      Welcome to our weekly agenda, our briefing on all the key financial events globally.Virus jitters will remain a focus along with Beijing and several US states as real data continues to reveal the impact of the pandemic on the economy. Market attention is honed in on any trade escalations but also on next week’s agenda, the high frequency data of the world’s biggest economy remaining a major focal point for markets.


      Monday – 22 June 2020

      PBoC Interest Rate Decision (CNY, GMT 01:30) – The People’s Bank of China announced a more aggressive monetary stimulus in its first-quarter report. In this meeting they should provide guidances on the next move in Loan Prime Rates.

      Tuesday – 23 June 2020

      Markit PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30-08:00) – The prel. June composite PMI for Germany is forecasted to register an upwards reading to 34.1 from 32.3, while the Eurozone’s number is expected to decline to 25.0 from 31.9.

      Markit PMI (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The May final services PMI was revised up to 29.0 from 27.8 vs 13.4 in April, and final manufacturing PMI revised up to 40.7 from 40.6, vs 32.6 in April.

      New Home Sales (USD, GMT 14:00) – A 1.1% May increase is seen for new home sales to a 630k pace, after a slight rise to a 623k rate in April. We saw a 12-year high of 774k as recently as January. The start of mandated closures in mid-March fueled the March-April pull-back for sales, following robust growth for all the housing measures through the winter, though a big Q2 hit is expected on home sales. As the economy reopens, the recovery for new home construction will likely be faster than for the rest of the economy, given solid fundamentals going into the crisis, and even lower mortgage rates.

      Wednesday – 24 June 2020

      Interest rate Decision and Conference (NZD, GMT 02:00) – RBNZ held rates steady at 1.75% in May, and this is expected to remain the case again in next week’s meeting.

      German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – June German IFO business confidence is expected to slow down to 78.3, after it unexpectedly rose to 79.5 in May.

      Trade Balance (NZD, GMT 22:45) – The overall trade deficit of New Zealand is currently at -$2.5B.

      Thursday – 25 June 2020

      ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts (EUR, GMT 11:30) –The ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts, similar to the FOMC minutes, provide information with regards to the policymakers’ rationale behind their decisions.

      Jobless Claims (USD, GMT 12:30)– US initial jobless claims fell -58k to 1,508k in the week ended June 13 following the-331k drop to 1,566k (was 1,542k) in the June 6 week. That’s an 11th consecutive weekly decline since the record surge to an all-time high of 6,867k in the March 27 week.

      Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to rise 17.0% in May with a 105% surge in transportation orders, after a -17.7% headline orders decrease in April that included a -48.3% transportation orders decline.

      US Final Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – No net revision in the -5.0% Q1 GDP growth clip is anticipated. The revised Q1 data will still depict a quarter that was likely posting respectable 2% growth until mid-March, when mandatory shutdowns prompted a dramatic output plunge.

      Tokyo CPI (JPY, GMT 23:30) – The country’s main leading indicator of inflation is expected to have declined at -0.2% y/y in June ex Fresh Food.

      Friday – 26 June 2020

      Personal Spending and Consumption (USD, GMT 12:30) – Personal consumption is expected to decrease by -5.7% in May after a 10.5% increase in April, alongside a 5.2% rebound in consumption that follows a -13.6% decrease in April. April income faced a big boost from the CARES Act that will be partly unwind into May.

      Michigan Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – Michigan Index is the main US consumer confidence index and it is expected to remain flat following the lift to 78.9 from 72.3 in May.

      Date : 23rd June 2020.

      European Market : EURUSD at 1.1300 again.



      The news flow today caused a brief risk-off burst in Asia-Pacific markets followed by a sharp recovery. In currencies, this transpired as a bout of dollar and yen outperformance alongside a sharp drop in risk-sensitive currencies such as the Australian dollar, followed by a quick reversal. The cause was miscommunication from the White House. Trade adviser to President Trump, Pete Navarro, said during an interview with Fox that the trade deal with China was “over.”

      This saw risk assets and currencies tumbling, before Navarro quickly walked-back his remarks with the help of White House Economic adviser Kudlow, who affirmed that the trade deal was very much in place. Trump himself then tweeted: “China Trade Deal is fully intact.“

      The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex (DXY) dropped to a 96.65 low on the initial remarks by Navarro, which is the lowest level seen since June 17th, before sprinting to a 97.24 high and subsequently settling near 97.00. EURUSD concurrently dropped by over 30 pips in making a low at 1.1244 before rebounding to levels around 1.1305. The pair earlier printed a six-day high at 1.1305.

      Followed by overnight news, European stock markets and Euro remain broadly higher, after the stronger than expected Eurozone and UK PMI readings that help to underpin sentiment further.

      Eurozone PMIs stronger than expected in preliminary readings for June. The manufacturing PMI lifted to a four months high of 46.9 from 39.4 in May and the services number jumped to 47.3 from 30.5 in May. That left the composite at a 4-month high of 47.5, up from 31.9 in the previous month. Data still points to overall contraction in the Eurozone economy, but the French readings were already above the 50-point no change mark and the pace of the downturn eased markedly as economies further relaxed restrictions. Markit also reported continued strong improvement in business expectations for the year ahead. Hotels, restaurants, travel and tourism remain impacted but with borders gradually opening there seems at least light at the end of the tunnel, which is helping to boost sentiment even if current conditions remain subdued. Nevertheless, we agree with Markit’s comment that the outlook remains uncertain as the “new normal” will likely continue to impact the services sector in particular and it remains to be seen how many companies can survive the downturn, especially if and when government wage support is scaled back

      In other news, SNB’s Zurbruegg stated that FX intervention potentially “unlimited”. Zurbruegg said there are no limits to how far the SNB’s balance sheet could expand. He also suggested that the bank is not concerned about the possibility of being named a currency manipulator by the U.S. saying the central bank is in close contact with the United States to explain Switzerland’s special situation and its highly valued currency. At the same time, Zurbruegg said monetary policy can not cushion the blow of Covid-19 – stressing that “this is where fiscal policy comes in. If fiscal policy no longer able to use its instruments, this will lead to a worse overall economic result”.

      Date : 24th June 2020.

      European stock markets are selling off.



      European stock markets are selling off. The better than expected German Ifo reading failed to lift sentiment and after a mixed close in Asia stock markets are now selling off across Europe, with GER30 and UK100 down -1.8% on the day.

      Meanwhile US futures have lost their modest overnight gains and are down -0.4 to -0.7% now with fears of a second wave of virus infections and warnings that the lockdowns will have a longer term impact on activity adding to caution.Markets already struggled during the Asian part of the session and Topix and Nikkei closed with losses of -0.4% and -0.07% respectively. The Hang Seng was -0.50% lower at the close, while CSI 300 and ASX managed gained of 0.4% and 0.2%.

      Lets get back to GER30 and UK100 though. The interesting part is that both assets reversed away from the 61.8%-76.4% Fibonacci level set on the June’s downleg. Theoretically, 61.8% is the strongest retracement level, hence that confirms that from the technical side, the asset confirmed that retracement and further decline could find support on lower Fib. levels. However other that the slip away from 61.8% Fib. level, both assets breakout their 20-day SMA, suggesting that if the price action is been sustained by the end of the day below it, then the asset could be seen retesting June 11-15 low territory.

      In regards to the EU data now……

      German Ifo business confidence jumped to 86.2 in June, from 79.7 in the previous month. The current conditions index nudged higher, but less than hoped and the overall improvement was mainly due to a jump in the future expectations reading, which lifted to 91.4 from 80.4 in may. This is the highest reading since February, although the overall reading still fell back to an average of 80.1 in the second quarter of the year, from 92.6 in the first quarter. The numbers highlight the sharp correction in overall activity that was the result of lockdowns and the diffusion index, which gives the balance of positive and negative answers, still remained firmly in negative territory in June, with pessimists outnumbering optimists across all key sectors. A further indication then that things are improving, but that it will take a long time to overcome the slump. Against that background it remains to be see how many companies will survive and how the labour market will far once official wage support schemes are scaled back.

      Another mixed set of US data today, with the Weekly Claims once again falling but just as importantly missing expectations. Durable Goods were a positive beat but the advance goods trade deficit widened and the final reading of Q1 GDP remained unmoved at -5.0%.

      US initial jobless claims fell -60,000 to 1,480,000 in the week ended June 20 following the disappointing small -26,000 drop to 1,540,000 (was 1,508,000) in the June 13 week which also coincided with the BLS survey period. This is a 12th straight decline in claims after the record surge to the all-time high of 6,867,000 in the March 27 week. The 4-week moving average continued to slip and was at 1,620,750 versus 1,781,500 (was 1,773,000). Continuing claims dropped -767,000 to 19,522,000 in the week of June 13 after falling -317,000 to 20,289,000 (was 20,544,000).

      US durable goods orders bounced 15.8% in May, a little firmer than expected and the biggest leap since July 2014, following the -18.1% (was -17.7%) plunge in April (the second worst on record) and the -16.7% drop in March. Transportation orders climbed 80.7% after April’s -48.6% (was -47.3%) plunge. Excluding transportation, orders rebounded 4.0% from -8.2% (was -7.7%) previously. Nondefense capital goods orders excluding aircraft climbed 2.3% from -6.5% (was -6.1%). Shipments were up 4.4% in May from -18.6% (was -18.2%). Nondefense capital goods shipments excluding aircraft rose 1.8% from -6.2% (was -5.7%). Inventories edged up 0.1% versus the prior unchanged reading (was 0.2%).

      US Q1 GDP was unrevised at -5.0% in the third look at the data, and compares to -4.8% in the Advance number, and 2.1% in Q4 2019. Personal consumption was down -6.8%, as it was in the second report, and was -7.6% in the Advance, and 1.8% in Q4. Fixed investment was revised up to a -1.3% pace from -2.4% in the second look, and was -0.6% in Q4. Government consumption was bumped up to 1.1% from 0.8% previously and 2.5% in Q4. Inventories subtracted -1.56%, revised down from -0.98%, while net exports added 1.3%, also lowered from 1.5% previously. The GDP chain price index posted a 1.4% rate, as it did in the second look, and was 1.3% in Q4. The core rate rose to 1.7% from 1.6% previously and 1.3% in Q4.

      Finally, the US advance goods trade deficit widened to -$74.3 bln in May from -$70.7 bln (was -$69.7 bln). Exports fell -5.8% to $90.1 bln after plunging -25.1% to $95.6 bln in April. Imports dropped -1.2% to $164.4 bln following the -13.6% decline to $166.3 bln previously. Wholesale inventories declined -1.2% to $642.2 from $649.9 bln (was $651.5 bln), with retail inventories dropping -6.1% to $604.5 bln from $643.8 bln (was $644.9 bln).



      All of this has taken the shine off the USD recovery today – USDJPY slipped from 107.45 back under R1 at 107.20 and EURUSD moved up from S2 sub-1.1200, to 1.1225. However, both remain on trend from key moves which were initiated yesterday.

      Date : 29th June 2020.

      Events to Look Out for This Week.




      An important week is coming up as Brexit trade talks resume next week, with Boris Johnson holding a video link summit with the EU Commission President on Monday. In addition, NFPs will be out on Thursday and a broad range of PMIs and other early indicators are expected during the week.

      Monday – 29 June 2020

      Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 12:00) – The German HICP inflation is expected to hold at 0.5% y/y for June.

      Tuesday – 30 June 2020

      Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 06:00) – The GDP is the economy’s most important figure. Q1’s GDP is expected to remain unchanged at -1.6% y/y and -2% q/q. As for the Q2 GDP, a severe contraction is expected after the 20.4% m/m contraction seen in April.

      Consumer Price Index and Core (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area flash CPI for June is forecasted to remain steady, at 0.1% y/y.

      Gross Domestic Product (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The April GDP is expected to contract at -18.2%. The Q1 GDP revealed a -8.2% pandemic driven drop, marking a hefty pull-back in activity as lockdown measures shuttered much of the economy in the second half of March.

      Consumer Confidence (USD, GMT 14:00) – Consumer confidence is expected to rise to 89.0 from 86.6 in May and a 6-year low of 86.9 in April. This compares to an 18-year high of 137.9 in October of 2018 and a recession-low of 25.3 in February of 2009. The present situation index is expected to improve to 78.5 from a seven-year low of 71.1 in May. All of the available confidence measures were oscillating near historic highs before being crushed by COVID-19, and even with big drop-backs, it’s remarkable how firm the consumer measures have stayed relative to prior recessions.

      Treasury Secretary Mnuchin speech

      Feds Chair Powell testimony

      Wednesday – 01 July 2020

      Canada and Hong-Kong – Holiday Day.

      Caixin Manufacturing PMI (CNY, GMT 01:45) – The Caixin manufacturing PMI is expected to hold into the neutral zone in June.

      Markit Manufacturing PMI and Unemployment data (EUR, GMT 07:55) – In June, the German PMI is expected to once again show weakness in German manufacturing and a lift in the jobless rate at 6.6%, despite the wage subsidies and announced stimulus from the government. These are unlikely to prevent a further rise in official jobless numbers to around the 3 million mark by the end of the year, highlighting the impact of the pandemic on the economy.

      ADP Employment Change (USD, GMT 12:15) – Employment change is seen spiking to 3.5 mln in the number of employed people in June, compared to the -2,760k May ADP drop.

      ISM Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM index is expected to rise to 49.0 in June from 43.1 in May.

      Thursday – 02 July 2020

      NFP and Labour Market Data (USD, GMT 12:30) – A 3,000k June nonfarm payroll increase is projected, after a 2,509k rebound in May and a -20,527 April collapse.An assumption has been made for a 600k factory jobs increase in June, after a 225k May rise, with a big lift from a re-opening vehicle sector. The jobless rate should fall to 12.0% from 13.3% in May and a 14.7% peak in April. The continuing claims data have been slow to moderate, but nearly all other measures of activity have risen into June from a trough just after the April BLS survey week. Average hourly earnings are assumed to fall another -1.0% in June with a continued unwind of the April distortion from the concentration of layoffs in low-wage categories. This would translate to a drop in the y/y gain to 5.3% from 6.7%.

      Friday – 03 July 2020

      United States – Independence Day.

      Retail Sales (AUD, GMT 00:30) – Retail Sales are expected to flatten at 16.3% for May.

      Date : 30th June 2020.

      USDIndex – Is the trend still down?



      USDIndex – The Dollar has strengthened after home sales came out better than expected, at 44.3% from the 19.7% predicted and higher than -21.8% seen last month, boosting also stock markets. The US returned to the positive with S&P +1.47%, NASDAQ +1.2% and Dow Jones +2.32%.

      It looks like the USDIndex’s resumption attempt in the second half of June was not as effective as expected, with safe haven demand falling after the May lockdown. As a result of the latter, the US Dollar seems to be based on more internal economic factors. Therefore, this week we must pay special attention to US economic data. Today, the Chicago PMI index numbers are due alongside consumer confidence and Fed President Powell’s testimony, and tomorrow the ADP employment numbers and the PMI-ISM index will highlight US economic calendar this week , Tthe non-farm payrolls – which have moved to Thursday because Friday is the National Day and the market is closed.

      However, the USDIndex trend still has significant obstacles in the uptrend. A potential bearish flag trend could be spotted which could be the continuation of the downtrend if it is confirmed with a strong pullback. That is still below the 200-EMA and followed by Golden cross (50-EMA and 200-EMA), all of which are in line with momentum indicators such as MACD that are still in the negative.

      US Data – ADP, PMIs & Vaccine News.



      EURUSD, H1

      US ADP reported private payrolls rose 2.369 million in June. Also, May was revised sharply higher, by 5.825 million to a 3.065 million increase (was -2.760 million). April’s -19.409 million was a record plunge. Jobs in the goods production sector increased 457,000, with construction jobs up 394,000. Service sector employment increased 1.912 million, with gains of 961,000 in leisure/hospitality, 283,000 in education/health, and 151,000 in professional/business services. A robust private payrolls. The ADP climb beats the modest improvement in the continuing and initial claims data for the period, but undershoots the bigger sales, sentiment, and output gains in other measures, and is in line with the payroll gain expected for tomorrow’s jobs report. ADP gains were fairly evenly dispersed across increases of 873,000 for large companies, 559,000 for medium companies, and 937,000 for small companies.

      US final June Markit manufacturing rose to 49.8 (was 49.6 in the preliminary) from May’s 39.8. It is a fourth month of contraction and was at 50.6 a year ago. But the weakness is abating from the 36.1 record low from April amid re-openings of the economy. The 10-point surge in the index was a record jump, and it is now the highest reading since February. Output climbed to 47.5 from May’s 34.4, with new orders also moving higher.

      US equity markets have opened in positive territory, rebounding from early losses on the futures market following reports of positive results on a vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech.

      EURUSD pushes towards 1.1250 following a dip to 1.1184 earlier, USDJPY pivots around 107.50, down from Asian session highs at 108.06 and the USA500 trades at 3115 and highs of the day. FOMC Minutes due at 18:00 GMT.
