Market Update – Risk Apettite ahead of a massive week!



China set a modest target for economic growth this year of around 5% on Sunday, and is poised to implement the biggest government shake-up in a decade. Disappointing the markets! USD under pressure. Yields decline and Stocks extend rally today after Friday’s strong close. Stronger than expected data releases have revived tightening speculation and kept a lid on local stocks.

Ratesensitive tech shares outperformed in Japan, just like in the US, after comments from Richardmond Fed President Thomas Barkin that inflation is “likely past peak,” which helped to rein in long-term Treasury yields from multi-month highs. A day earlier, Atlanta Fed chief Raphael Bostic hinted that a peak in rates may come in summer.



  • USD under pressure retested 104.34 low. EUR extends to 1.0640, for a 2nd day in a row. JPY dipped 135.30 but has inclined to 135.70 now. Sterling jumped to 1.2040 but failed to exit February’s range.
  • Stocks – The US markets rallied amid overtightening comments from FED officials. Movers – US500 +0.76% 4054, US100 +0.76% 12341, US30 +0.76% 33408, GER40 up 0.2%, UK100 futures are flat.


  • Commodities – USOil – holds gains above $78.80 from EIA small supply gain seen last week and as markets weigh prospects for China demand after latest economic data. Gold – had its best week since mid-January amid soft USD. Currently at $1858.20.
  • Cryptocurrencies – BTC – tanked on Friday to 21,858 amid Silvergate Failure (Silvergate Halts Crypto Payments After Suffering $1 Billion Loss). Currently recovering above $22k.
Today – Eurozone January retail sales, February S&P Global PMIs for Germany, France and Eurozone, Canadian Ivey PMI and US Factory Orders.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) GBPCHF (-0.49%). Dipped to 1.2128 on EU open. MA’s aligned lower, MACD histogram turn negative & signal line is at 0, RSI 29 & falling, H1 ATR 0.00116, Daily ATR 0.00776.

Market Update – Buoyed investor sentiment ahead of Powell.



USD under pressure, Yields slightly higher buoyed by investor sentiment which also boosted Stocks after they sagged through US session. (Reuters) – China’s exports & imports dropping for January-February pointed to continued weakness in demand for the country’s products & foreign demand, backing government concerns that a global slowdown will be felt at home. RBA raised rates to 3.60% from 3.35% the highest in more than a decade but suggested it might be nearly done tightening as consumer spending was slowing and there was less risk of a wages-driven inflation blow-out. The bid fell out of the markets as trading turned more cautious post weak trade data which weighed on Chinese stocks and ahead of Fed Chair Powell’s Testimony.

  • Futures traders are pricing in a 76% probability the Fed will raise rates by 25 basis points at its March 21 to 22 meeting and a 24% likelihood of a 50 bp increase.
  • USD holds at 10-day low area at 104.12 now. Euro retests 1.07, Sterling jumped to 1.2062 above 20-DMA. Aussie at a more than 2-month low of 0.6690.
  • Stocks – JPN225 +0.25% at 28,309 – US500 at 4058, US100 +1% at 12348, US30 +0.12% 33487.META will cut thousands of jobs as soon as this week in a fresh round of layoffs.


  • Commodities – USOil – jumped to $80.93. China’s crude oil imports fell 1.3% in the first two months of 2023 from a year earlier, data showed on Tuesday, but analysts pointed to accelerating imports in February as a sign that fuel demand was rebounding after Beijing scrapped COVID-19 controls. Gold – slightly higher at $1850.98.
  • Cryptocurrencies – BTC – steady at $22k.
Today – Fed Chair Powell’s Testimony first to the Senate Banking Committee, and then to the House Finance Committee tomorrow. He is expected to reiterate the Fed’s hawkish stance of higher for longer rates.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) GBPAUD (+0.50%). Rallied to 1.7982. MAs aligned higher, MACD histogram & signal line extend higher, RSI 75 & rising, H1 ATR 0.00271, Daily ATR 0.01426.

Market Update – Fed is prepared to “speed up”.



USD rallied to 105.85 during Powell’s hawkish speech and holds above 105.57 since then. Yields rose and stock markets remain under pressure. The Nikkei was a notable exception overnight, with a 0.5% gain. Curves are inverting further in Germany and the US as concern that overly aggressive central bank action will hurt the recovery returns. The curve inverted to -104 bps, the most since 1981, from -93 bps.

A more hawkish than expected stance from Fed Chair Powell saw Treasury yields spike and Wall Street sink, while the dollar firmed. Although Powell did not really say anything new as he reiterated the “higher for longer” policy mantra, he did open the door for a return to a more aggressive 50 bp rate hike and the markets jumped through it. BlackRock sees ‘reasonable chance’ of Fed raising rates to 6%.

  • USD at 105.66 now. Euro drifted to 1.0544, Sterling broke 4-month support to 1.1861, below 20-WMA. Yen spiked to 137.54 on US Dollar strength.
  • Stocks – US500 tumbled 1.53% to close under the 4000 mark. The US100 slid -1.25%. The US30 dropped -1.72% with losses accelerating after the break below 33,000.


  • Commodities – USOil – massive sell off from $80.95 to $77.13 on fears that more aggressive US interest rate hikes would hit demand. API shows US crude stocks fall helped oil to find a floor, while USD rise keeps lid on oil. Gold – 1-week low (-1.9%) at 1814.22.
  • Cryptocurrencies – BTC – at $21936.
Today – Fed Chair Powell’s Testimony to the House Finance Committee. US ADP, & BoC rate decision.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) XAUUSD (-1.9%). Plummeted to 1809. MAs flattened, MACD histogram & signal line remain well below 0, RSI 30 & flat, H1 ATR 2.32, Daily ATR 18.25.

Market Update – Futures illiquid & sensitive to news!

banking-696x364.png


Another Bank failed over the weekend! Along with SVB, the Fed also closed Signature Bank. The Fed announced a new funding facility on Sunday, the Bank Term Funding Program (BTFP), to stave off a possible fire sale and subsequent liquidity crisis and a run on banks when the markets reopened today following the failure of the two banks.

US equity futures rose and the USD declined so far in today’s trading after regulators weighed in to shore up the banking system and said depositors of collapsed tech sector lender Silicon Valley Bank would be fully repaid.





The Fed also announced the Discount Window is open and will apply the same margins as the new BTFP facility. Fed, FDIC, and Treasury officials also said customers of SVB will have access to all their funds, even those in excess of the $250k FDIC limit, on Monday. These quick actions significantly reduce systemic risks across the financial system and should significantly calm fears. Also First Republic Gets Additional Funding From Fed, (JPMorgan).

Overnight:


  • USDIndex drifted to 103.43 low as rate outlook now is very uncertain. Could the Fed protect small US banks & hold back on raising rates at the next meeting?
  • Goldman Sachs economists said late Sunday they no longer expected the Fed to increase rates on March 22, its next meeting.
  • VIX climbed to 27.05 before retracing to 22.37.
  • Euro (+0.84%) jumped to 1.0733, Sterling up at 1.2113 retesting 50-DMA. Yen declines with USDJPY to 134.50 from 133.50. USDCAD down to 1.3320 from 1.3860 high.
  • The yield on the 10-year US Treasury rose to 3.704%, while the yield on the 2-year note fell 0.15% to 4.435 per cent. Yields move inversely to price.
  • Stocks – US100 up by +1.65%, US500 +1.53%, US30 dropped +1.09%.
  • USOil – up to $77.18, rising 0.65%.
  • Gold – rebounds to $1875 on a flight to safety .
  • Cryptocurrencies – BTC – up by 9.1% rallied to $22.5K! (key neckline). Cryptocurrency prices rallied after US regulators said depositors of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank, a major bank for crypto companies, would get their money back.
    • Ether also climbed 9% to $1,611.


Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) BTCUSD (+9.1%). Spiked to 22566. Next Resistance at 23000-23090.

Market Update – Markets brace ahead of Inflation!



The fallout from the failure of SVB and Signature Bank has been far and wide, rattling global markets. Much of the focus now is on upcoming central bank actions and whether policymakers will be hesitant to add to market volatility with additional rate hikes.

Wall Street was all over the board and finished mixed. Equities opened on the backfoot after steep declines overnight and amid losses of -2% in European bourses. Stocks slumped in Asia. Major US regional bank stocks suffered their largest decline in three years, FRC -61.83%, Credit Suisse fell by 15% (withdrew $120 billion in the three months to Dec. 31).

With the creation of the new “BTFP” to backstop the financial system, Treasuries garnered a very strong flight to safety bid, and especially at the front end of the curve. The markets also repriced Fed rate hike expectations, taking out the prospects for further aggressive action, and pricing in rate cuts later in the year. US Dollar was generally weaker through the session.

Investors bet against the 2-year Treasury en masse, expecting its yield to continue climbing. That was the worst three-day rout since the days after Black Monday in 1987 eventhough it was not maintained.

  • USDIndex fell to 103.48 with losses against its G10 peers. Today slightly higher.
  • Yields – The 2-year had its biggest slide since 2008, to a low of 3.935%. It closed at 3.984%, the lowest since mid-September and is 113 bps richer just from Wednesday’s 5.07% peak, which was the highest since 2007. The 10-year closed at 3.568%.
  • VIX climbed to 28.35 before retracing to 24.47.
  • Euro settled slightly below 1.07, Sterling held gains at 1.2160 (no impact from tight labor data). Yen picked up a strong haven bid to 133.00.
  • Stocks – US100 posted a +0.45% gain, US500 -0.15% lower, US30 closed in red -0.28%.
  • USOil – held losses ahead of key inflation data as the biggest US bank collapse since 2008 continued to ripple through financial markets. It is at $74 rising 0.65%.
  • Gold – surges lower after 5% rally to $1914. Currently at $1909.
  • Cryptocurrencies – BTC surges by 12% spiking to $24,815.
    • Ether also climbed 6% to $1,693.
Today: US CPI report could give the FOMC the chance to remain sidelined, or at least decide on a 25 bp hike versus the 50 bps that was firmly priced in last Wednesday.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) VIX (+6.94%). Spiked to 28.55 before settling below PP at 24.47.

Market Update – March 17 – Another day another bank bailout.




A private ($30 bln) “rescue” of First Republic Bank by a consortium of 11 big banks helped ease concerns over a full blown financial crisis. Their efforts were rewarded yesterday, as risk appetite improved and investors returned to Wall Street, lifting the major indexes sharply. USA100 jump 2.48% and is up 7.95% from Monday’s nadir, the US500 advance 1.76%, and the USA30 was 1.17% firmer. A risk off mood that raced around the world this week has cooled. Asian markets are firmer too (Hang Seng leads at +1.44%) and European FUTS are also in positive territory.

USD & Treasuries have cooled as yields recover. The 2-year jumped 27 bp to 4.155% and the 10-year was up 12 bp to 3.569%, back over the 4.00% and 3.5% levels, respectively. The curve bear flattened to -59 bp from -44 bp on Wednesday and versus -108 bp a week ago.

ECB delivered a 50 bp rate hike, and stuck to its guns, despite the turmoil in financial markets this week. The guidance on future moves was not surprisingly dropped though and the ECB stressed that future decisions will be data dependent. Ms. Lagarde’s Press Conference emphasised the data dependency approach.

US Data & Overnight: US Weekly Claims fell again (192k vs. 212k) and the Housing Data was also better than expected. Japanese Tertiary Industrial Activity rose significantly too (0.95 vs -0.4% last month).

  • FXUSDIndex has dipped to test 103.50 today from 104.70 highs on Wednesday. EUR tanked to 1.0550 lows as the ECB announcement was digested, before rallying to 1.0660 now. The 1.0600-1.0700 range remains key. JPY spiked below 132.00, rallied to 133.75 and is back to 133.00 now. Sterling rallied over 1.2100 yesterday and trades at 1.2160 now.
  • Stocks – The US markets rallied (+1.17% to +2.48%) Movers: SCHW -2.80%, FRC rallied +10% (but lost –17% after hours). Tech giants gained over 4% MSFT, AMZN & GOOG . US500 +1.67% (+68) to 3960, US500 FUTS higher too 4000 now.



  • Commodities – USOil – Futures tested the 15-mth low at $65.70 again yesterday before recovering to $69.00. Gold – holds the key psychological $1900 level, at $1930 down from yesterday’s 6-week $1935 high.
  • Cryptocurrencies BTC has again rallied over $25K & $26k to $26.5k now.
Today – EZ HICP (Final), US Industrial Production, Leading Index Change, Univ. of Michigan (Prelim.) and Quad Witching.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) NZDUSD (+0.95%). Continued the rally today from yesterday’s low under 0.6150 back to test 0.6250 now. MA’s aligned higher, MACD histogram & signal line positive & rising, RSI 71.00, OB & rising, H1 ATR 0.00128, Daily ATR 0.00766.

Market Update – March 20 – CS sends shockwaves through the market!



UBS to buy Credit Suisse in a more than $3 bln share deal, pushed into the biggest banking deal in years! The Swiss government will provide more than $9 billion to backstop some losses that UBS may incur by taking over Credit Suisse, while $17.3 billion of the so-called additional tier 1 bonds will be completely written down. Last Thursday, CS also took a $54 billion lifeline from the Swiss National Bank.

Credit Suisse’s takeover by UBS marks the end of the bank’s 167 years as an independent institution.

Global central banks announce enhanced USD liquidity arrangement. The Fed, the Bank of Canada, the ECB, the BoE, the Bank of Japan and the SNB on Sunday announced, “coordinated action to enhance the provision of liquidity, via the standing US dollar liquidity swap line arrangements”. The frequency of the 7-day maturity operations will be enhanced from weekly to daily as of March 20 until at least through the end of April “to support smooth functioning of US dollar funding-markets”.

  • Insignificant Exposure in China: The Swiss bank’s Hong Kong branch has assets equivalent to around $12.7 billion, less than 0.5% of the overall banking system.
  • Bancorp’s Flagstar Bank will take on nearly all of Signature Bridge Bank’s deposits.
  • In 2019, the Fed issued a warning to SVB over its risk-management systems.
  • Stocks – Stock markets are selling off! USA100 down to 12580, the US500 dipped to 3912, and the USA30 at 31,760. Nikkei and ASX closed with losses of -1.4%, the Hang Seng is down -3.1% and European and US futures are also sharply lower.


  • FXUSDIndex is at 103.40 today. EUR slightly down to 1.0636, but holds the upchannel since last Wednesday! JPY spiked below 131.00, retested S1 at 130.70. Sterling steady around 1.2190.
  • Commodities – USOil – dragged down with stocks, at $64.70 low.
  • Gold – up 2% today, breaching 3 year high territory at $2009 level.
  • Cryptocurrencies BTC in a rally to $28,262 since Asia open, up more than 3%.
Today – ECB Lagarde speech, Import & Exports from New Zealand.

Events to Look Out For Next Week.



It’s a holiday shortened week ahead as most markets will be closed on Friday for the Easter holidays, however Inflation and Banks remain the focal point. The advent of a new month and new quarter could further improve risk appetite despite some ongoing jitters in regional banks, still tight jobless claims, and hawkish central bankers. Next week’s heavy dose of global data releases includes the RBA and RBNZ rate decision and the employment data from Canada, while US NFP is in the spotlight.​

Monday – 03 April 2023


  • Consumer Price Index and Core (CHF, GMT 06:30) – Swiss inflation for March is expected to ease at 0.4% from 1.9% previously.
  • ISM Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM index is expected to slip to 47.5 in March, after a rise to 47.7 from a 3-year low of 47.4 in January.

Tuesday – 04 April 2023


  • OPEC-JMMC meeting attended by representatives from the 13 OPEC members and 11 other oil-rich nations.
  • Rate Statement & Interest Rate Decision (AUD, GMT 04:30) – The RBA is considering a pause on rate rises, according to the minutes to the March 7 meeting. They flagged that the board will consider keeping the cash rate on hold at 3.6% in April, if the economy shows signs of softening. “Members agreed to consider the case for a pause at the following meeting recognising that pausing would allow additional time to reassess the outlook for the economy”. “At what point it will be appropriate to pause will be determined by the data and the board’s assessment of the outlook”.
Wednesday – 05 April 2023

  • Rate Statement & Interest Rate Decision (NZD, GMT 02:00) – As the high inflation continues the RBNZ is expected to continue hiking, with markets pricing in a nearly 100% chance of a 25 bps rate hike to 5%. New Zealand’s economy is expected to have shrunk 0.3% in Q1 following a 0.6% growth last quarter, indicating a mild recession.
  • ADP Non-Farm Employment Change (USD, GMT 12:15) – ADP is expected to climb to 200K in March after the 242K seen in February.
  • ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI should ease to 54.8 from 55.1, versus a 3-year low of 49.2 in December. We’re seeing a 16-month producer sentiment pull-back from robust peaks in November of 2021, with many of the various component categories now in contraction territory. Producers are facing big headwinds from elevated interest rates, recession fears, and now a banking crisis, but have benefited from the need to rebuild inventories following a prolonged period of supply chain disruptions.
Thursday – 06 April 2023

  • Labour Market Data (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada’s employment change is anticipated to contract by -4.2k in March from 21.8K growth last month. Unemployment and participation rate are seen unchanged.
Friday – 07 April 2023

  • Good Friday – The stock and bond markets will both be closed.
  • Event of the Week – Non-Farm Payrolls (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 220K March nonfarm payroll increase is anticipated, after gains of 311k in February. A continued tight path for claims in March implies some upside payroll risk. The jobless rate should hold steady at 3.6% from February, up from the 54-year low of 3.4% (3.43%) in January. Hours-worked are assumed to rise 0.2% after a -0.1% February drop, while the workweek holds steady at 34.5. Average hourly earnings are assumed to rise 0.3% after a 0.2% gain in January, while the y/y wage gain should fall to 4.3% from 4.6%. In the last expansion, we saw a 3.5% peak for y/y wage gains in both February and July of 2019, before the pandemic-boost to an 8.0% peak in April of 2020. The ensuing strength in wage gains has allowed continued robust y/y increases, though the return of low-paid workers to the workforce is likely restraining wage increases.

Market Update – April 4 – RBA watered down its tightening bias!




Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD drifted, returning end of quarter gains on more signs of slowing in manufacturing activity, which had boosted Treasuries yields but after the data reversed the selloff. Implied Fed funds futures dipping too as the market reduced slightly the risk for a May rate hike. US Stock markets closed higher except US100. European futures are slightly higher. Oil held gains above $80 led by OPEC+ and Saudi’s pledge of its own of 500k reduction (“Saudi First”), which was the main driver across assets.

Overnight: RBA – held rates unchanged VS expectations – The bank has not ruled out a resumption of rate rises in the future. Fed’s Bullard (nonvoter) expects funds rate over 5% to achieve inflation target. ECB hawk Holzmann suggested that another 50 bp hike in May is not out of the question.

  • FXUSDIndex sagged to a low of 101.98 on the growth outlook and less hawkish Fed view, but the index finished the day at 102.03. EUR lifted to 1.0916. JPY underperformed as traders weighed in the impact of higher oil prices on Japan’s manufacturing sector. Currently back up to 132.80 amid wider weakness in the Yen. Sterling boosted to 1.2400, amid USD weakness and as UK March manufacturing PMI revised down.
  • Stocks – The US30 rallied 0.98%, led by the jump in energy. The US500 was 0.37% in the green, while the US100 slipped -0.27%. Nikkei and ASX managing slight gains, but China bourses trading narrowly mixed. The Hang Seng underperformed after the US100 closed in the red, with the tech sector not benefiting hugely from the more cautious tone of central banks.
  • Commodities – USOil – Saudi’s pledge of its own of 500k reduction was the main driver across assets. USOIL ended with a 6.28% pop to $80.42, up over $80 for the first time since March 6 (just before SVB went under), and the contract is up 10% since last Wednesday.
  • Gold – at 5-day support, $1976.
  • Cryptocurrencies BTC holds $27.4k.
Today – European PPI, Canadian Building permits, US Jolts and Factory Orders.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) USDRUB (+5.02%). Rallied to 78.50 this morning. MAs aligned higher, MACD histogram & signal line positive & rising but RSI flat and Stochastic posted a bearish cross. H1 ATR 0.4139, Daily ATR 0.9496.

Market Update – April 5 – Stock markets struggle.



USD remains under pressure, post the weaker than expected JOLTS and factory orders reports which set the stage for another strong rally in Treasuries as they heightened beliefs the FOMC is nearing the end of its tightening cycle. Yields plunged on the data headlines. RBNZ surprised, raised to 5.25% from 4.75% – the country’s economy is headed for recession, defined as two consecutive quarters of negative growth. US Stock markets sold off slightly into the afternoon with declines of about -0.5% as the weaker data dominated. BoE’s Hunt hinted for a rate rise in May. Pound at its highest level in 10 months, with slightly stronger than expected economic growth and an uptick in inflation in February raising the chances of higher interest rates. German manufacturing orders much stronger than expected.

  • FXUSDIndex ranging 101.11-101.29. EUR steady above 1.0950. JPY lifted extending 3-day gains, currently at 131.50 from 133.75 high against USD. Sterling boosted to 1.2522 reaching June 2022 highs.
  • Stocks – Asian stock markets struggled, and European stock futures are also mostly in the red, after another disappointing data round in the US undermined confidence in the recovery and left Wall Street with another loss. Japanese markets underperformed and the Nikkei lost -1.7%. Walmart shares -1% afterhours as it sticks with cautious sales outlook for first quarter. Ford’s quarterly sales jump 10% as supply improves.
  • Commodities – USOil is sideways between $80- $82 as concerns of further tightening support oil prices for now.
  • Gold – rallied to $2026.
  • Cryptocurrencies BTC extending above $28.5k.
Today – Service PMI’s from EZ, UK & US ISM Services & Trade Balance and ADP Private Payrolls.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) NZDUSD (+0.52%). Spiked to 0.6378. MAs flattened, MACD line below histogram, RSI turn below 80 and Stochastic at 55 indicating the end of the rally.

Market Update – April 6 – Eyes on Jobs.



While Friday’s jobs report is the near term focus, attention is already turning to CPI on April 12.

USD
wobbled initially and stumbled to 101.4 on the data, but recovered to close at 101.75. Another data miss, a further drop in bonds. Treasuries rallied further after weaker ISM services and ADP numbers added to expectations for a slowing economy that will keep the FOMC hawks grounded, if not in May, then in June. The combination of risk aversion, reduced expectations for Fed tightening, short covering, and technicals all helped propel the move. Wall Street was mixed all session & Asian equities declined following the US lower as investors switched their focus to the prospect of a recession. German industrial production surged 2.0% m/m in February, adding to signs that activity has strengthened, and that Germany will escape a technical recession! UK house prices rose unexpectedly in March.

Overnight – China & HK reopened but the regions stocks also remained heavy ahead of Easter Weekend. – Chinese Services PMI grew strongly, the AUD trade balance was better than expected but weighed on AUD & NZD.

  • FXUSDIndex ranging 101.11-101.29. EUR and GBP are weaker but steady above 1.0900 and 1.2450 respectively. JPY also lost some ground against USD rebounding to 131.50.
  • Stocks – US100 dropped -1.07%, while the US500 fell -0.25%, with the US30 rising 0.24%. Western Alliance Bancorp shares have fallen further today, dropping some -17% following an update on its Q1 financials yesterday on a lack of details. Losses are being pared slightly after just releasing further information on its deposits, noting total deposits declined to $47.6 bln in Q1 from $53.6 bln to end Q4. It is slated to announce its earnings on April 18 after the close.
  • Commodities – USOil is sideways between $79-$80.
