Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD & Yields rallied significantly, and Stocks sank into long Easter weekend.

Date : 18th April 2022.

Market Update – April 18.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD boomed, breaching 100.70, Yields rallied significantly, Stocks sank amid thin trade into holiday-extended weekend. The potential aggressive 50 bp rate hikes from the FOMC in May, and likely June too, kept markets cautious. China’s PBoC announced a 25 bp reduction in the reserve requirement ratio (RRR) for big banks, and 50 bp for smaller banks, on the heels of Wednesday’s call from the State Council for such action. It will take effect on April 25. China’s GDP expanded by 4.8% in Q1. USDJPY had a short lived rally this morning to 126.78, before both Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda and Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki voiced concerns. – “Kuroda made clear on Monday that while a weak yen could impact corporate profits, it was premature to debate any exit from that easy policy.”

* Stocks lower (NASDAQ at 4360.88) Nikkei closed down 1.08% at 26,799.71 on Monday with US, China and Japan the only ones open today.
* USDIndex retests  100.70 highs.
* Equities – USA500 at 4360 lows.
* Oil gapped up to $108.54 over supply concerns again as Libya halted operations at El Feel oilfield due to protests, and US oil drilling, output moving higher with energy prices.
Gold spiked to $1990 – Thin liquidity, firm yields risk aversion?
* Bitcoin sank to 38,444. 
* FX markets – Yen 10% weaker since beginning of March. EURUSD steady below 1.0800 (2-year lows), Cable tumbled at 1.3017, AUDUSD near 1-month low at 0.7350 (breaking 50-day SMA).

Today – Comments from Fed Chair Powell, BOE Bailey and ECB President Lagarde on Thursday will be interesting but we do not expect any new ground to be broken. There is little on this week’s calendar data-wise and today’s slate has just the NAHB housing market index. There is Fedspeak from Bullard.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) XAGUSD (+1.40%) Breached R1 at 25.90. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram moving higher, RSI 58 but flattenning,  H1 ATR 0.1021, Daily ATR 0.556.

Date : 19th April 2022.

Market Update – April 19 – Markets are back.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Markets are back today. European as well as US stock futures are moving higher, after a mixed close across the Asia-Pacific region overnight.  Heightened geopolitical risks weighed on confidence and mainland China bourses failed to get a real boost from the PBoC’s pledge to support the economy.  The Ukraine war and central bank moves will remain in focus, amid further signs of weakening growth and rising inflation in particular in Europe. Hawkish IMF and World Bank meetings are a highlight this week and the World Bank already slashed its growth forecast. RBA:  closer to raising interest rates for the first time in more than a decade due to accelerating inflation.

The World Bank lowered its forecast for 2022 growth. The markets also monitored a Goldman Sachs estimate of a 35% risk for a recession over the next two years.  – 15-month crisis response package of around $170 bln.

* Yields – The 10-year Treasury yield is down -0.6 bp at 2.85%, while the German 10-year has lifted 2.1 bp to 0.86%, after the extended break.
* Stocks waffled between gains and losses through the session, but finally settled slightly lower with losses of -0.1% on the Dow and NASDAQ, and a -0.02% dip in the USA500. Nikkei closed 0.7% higher. China bourses underperformed and the Hang Seng plunged -2.5% after returning from the extended weekend.
* USDIndex remains on bid, at 100.99 highs.
* Oil edged up to $109.81, from an overnight low of $106 amid the continued supply-demand tug of war. Supply was more of a focal point as two Libyan ports were shut amid anti government protests and the National Oil Corporation declared a force majeure on loadings. Currently steady above $107.00.
* Bitcoin spiked to $41,223.
* FX markets – EURUSD choppy around 1.0780, Cable tumbled below 1.3000, AUDUSD +0.3% supported by RBA minutes at 0.7385.

Today – There is little on this week’s calendar data-wise and today’s slate has just the Housing Starts and Building permits from US. There is Fedspeak from Evans and SNB’s Chairman Jordan.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) CADJPY (+1.40%) Breached 102.00. MAs still aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram moving higher, RSI 91 but flattening, H1 ATR 0.197, Daily ATR 0.892.

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

Date : 26th April 2022.

Market Update – April 26 – Fragile Sentiment.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Sentiment stabilised, after a mostly gloomy session for stocks yesterday. Wall Street got a late boost. Across the Asia Pacific region, the ASX underperformed in catch up trade, after returning from yesterday’s holiday, though global growth fears stoked by China’s strict COVID-19 curbs and an expected streak of aggressive Federal Reserve tightening sapped risk appetite. Wall Street surged and closed with gains, as Twitter jumped sharply on news Elon Musk finalized his purchase for some $44 bln. The late pop on Wall Street pulled rates up. Treasury yields are up from early double-digit lows. Switzerland’s trade surplus narrowed to just CHF 1.8 bln in March, from CHF 5.5 bln in February. The UK government reported a GBP13.1 bln deficit in March this year, less than markets had expected, but still the second-highest number for March.

* Yields closed in the green but well off of double-digit lows early in the day when the market caught a flight to safety bid. The 5-year finished 2 bps lower at 2.845%, with the wi 2-year down 2 bps to 2.650%, and the 10-year off 1.3 bps to 2.806%. Bund yields are backing up and the German 10-year rate has lifted 2.9 bp to 0.86%.
* Stocks –  The USA100 has climbed over 1.29%, while expectations for solid gains from Microsoft on Tuesday added to the rally. The USA30 and USA500 closed with gains of 0.70% and 0.57% as well after trading in the red much of the day as growth concerns weighed heavily, with a steep slide in energy. Nikkei lifted 0.4%.
* USDIndex remains on bid, at 101.85 highs.
* Oil prices dropped by 4% at $95.05 but added 0.89% to $99.42 a barrel currently. Worries over China’s fuel demand were soothed by the central bank’s pledge to support an economy hit by renewed COVID-19 curbs.
* Gold dipped to $1890 more than 2-month support.
* FX markets – USDJPY dropped back to 1.2787, although AUD and NZD and to a lesser extent the CAD outperformed, after being pressured yesterday.  EUR and Sterling remain at low levels against the USD, with Cable at 1.2740 and EURUSD at 1.0710.

Today – This week’s calendar is loaded with key data, events, and earnings that will give hawks and doves plenty of ammunition and keep the markets in flux. Today focus turns to US Durable goods and Consumer Confidence.



Biggest FX Mover @(07:30 GMT) USDZAR (+0.94%) Breached 15.82. MAs still aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram moving higher but very close to neutral zone, RSI 67 and rising, H1 ATR 0.05376, Daily ATR 0.2097.

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

Date : 27th April 2022.

Market Update – April 27 – Aggressive central bank moves hanging over markets.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Concern over aggressive tightening moves has resurfaced and Australia’s 10-year yield declined, as the short end of the curve was pressured by a jump in headline inflation which lifted to 5.1% y/y in Q1 – the highest level since the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax in the early 2000s. Stocks not surprisingly struggled, although mainland China bourses finally bounced back. Gold was back in demand temporarily and Oil prices backed up, with USOIL at $102.46 now. The Yen sold off, while the USDIndex is moving further above the 102 level. Russia halts gas supplies to Poland and Bulgaria.

* The 10-year Treasury yield is up 4.4 bp, with the curve flattening as the short end underperformed.
* Stocks – Nikkei and ASX meanwhile corrected -1.2% and -0.8% respectively with tech stocks under pressure after the weaker close on Wall Street yesterday. USA100 cratered -3.95%. The USA500 dropped -2.81% and the USA30 sunk -2.38%. GER40 and UK100 are slightly higher at the moment, but underperforming versus US futures.
* Earnings have been mixed but the advent of the key reports ahead left a very cautious environment. While a lot of reports have been better than expected, Q2 outlooks have been cut while guidance has been uncertain. Alphabet was down about 3%, GE disappointed and was the poster child for the headwinds, revealing supply chains problems, rising costs, and shortages of materials and labour.
* USDIndex remains on bid, at 102.52 highs.
* Oil spiked to 102.96, as Russia, which has been demanding payments for its gas in roubles as sanctions over its invasion of Ukraine bite, said it will halt supplies to Poland and Bulgaria from Wednesday.
* Gold back below $1900.
* FX markets – USDJPY over the 128 mark again, EURUSD extends to 1.0615, GBPUSD steady to the downside at 1.2558, USDCAD to 1.2828 highs.

Today – ECB’s President Lagarde speech, BoC’s Rogers speech, BoC’s Governor Macklem speech.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) AUDJPY (+1.29%) Breached 92. MAs flattened, MACD signal line & histogram moving higher close to neutral zone, RSI at 45, all signalling a pullback. H1 ATR 0.305, Daily ATR 1.195.

Date : 28th April 2022.

Market Update – April 28 – USD Dominates with FX Markets in Focus.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USDJPY rockets higher with 130.00 in the cross-hairs as BOJ leaves main policy steady, to hold 10yr JGB ceiling at 0.25%, while JPY was clobbered across the board again. AUDJPY back to 92.00, GBPJPY 162.00, EURJPY 136.40. The markets continued to mull the implications of the stand off between the EU and Russia over payment modalities for Russian gas deliveries.

* The front on a gradual ban of Russian oil imports has hardened, as Russia upped the ante, but while the EU urged a united front on Russian demands for ruble payments, the European Commission last week seemed open to companies finding ways to tally Moscow’s demands with the EU’s sanctions against Putin and that is what many companies are doing now. In the end it seems unlikely that gas supplies to the EU will stop immediately, although governments will work even harder to become independent of Russian deliveries as soon as possible.
* The 10-year Treasury yield is down –1.1 bp to 2.82%, while JGBs were supported after the BOJ.
* Stocks – ASX lifted 1.2%, and the Hang Seng 0.5%, but the CSI 300 is currently down -0.4%, with Covid developments still in focus. US futures are also higher, with a 1.3% rise in the USA100 leading the way.
* Earnings – Strong earnings from Microsoft and Visa. Facebook owner Meta beat Wall Street forecasts and said it had eked out user growth, sending its shares up almost 20% after hours.

Date : 29th April 2022.

Market Update – April 29.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Risk appetite surged as optimism over earnings more than overshadowed concerns over the 8% pop in the y/y GDP price gauge and the -1.4% print on Q1 GDP. The contraction in growth was seen as a one-off, however, due to trade disruptions limiting supply alongside a surge in demand following the pandemic, with inventory drawdowns contributing negatively too. Stock markets remained supported overnight, with hopes of support measures in China helping to underpin sentiment, after China vowed to underpin the health of so-called platform firms.  Meanwhile, the pick-up in core PCE inflation to a 5.2% y/y pace from 5.0% y/y was also seen on the light side and hence supported notions that prices may be topping out.

European Fixed Income Outlook: Bund yields are down -2.5 bp at 0.87% in early trade, with Eurozone bonds paring some of yesterday’s losses and yields coming down as the unexpected stagnation in French GDP at the start of the year highlighted that there are still reasons for the ECB to remain cautious even as inflation is going through the roof. German import price inflation jumped to 31.2% y/y in March, from 26.3% y/y in the previous month.

* Yields are coming down from yesterday’s highs. The 2-year yield rose over 5 bps to test 2.68% and the 10-year challenged 2.90% before drifting back to 2.63% and 2.85%, respectively.
* Stocks – GER40 and UK100 futures are up around 1.0%, USA100 soared 3.06% on the day, with the USA500 2.47% higher, while the USA30 climbed 1.85%, but all off of late peaks.  Japan is closed for a holiday, the ASX up 1.1% at the close.
* Earnings – Meta shares surge after Facebook ekes out user growth; Qualcomm rises after it forecasts upbeat revenue; Apple Inc, the world’s most valuable company, and e-commerce giant Amazon.com Inc rallied more than 4% ahead of their quarterly reports later in the day.
* USDIndex lost some of its recent gains, currently at 103.15.
* Oil at $106.42. Oil prices meanwhile moved higher as overall confidence improved and fears over China’s Covid measures eased somewhat.
* Gold back above $1900.
* FX markets – EUR and Sterling also found some buyers, but while EURUSD and Cable are up from yesterday’s lows, they are still looking pretty weak at currently 1.0548 and 1.2530 respectively.  USDJPY still held above the 130.

Today – German and Eurozone GDP are still to come and Eurozone inflation data are also due, while in the US session eyes are on PCE and Canadian GDP. Exxon and Chevron earnings on tap.



Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) XAGEUR (+1.27%) breached 22.20. MAs pointing higher, MACD signal line & histogram turned positive, RSI at 62, all signalling further boost in the near term. H1 ATR 0.077, Daily ATR 0.509.

Date : 2nd May 2022.

Market Update – May 2 – USD hold gains, China data dives, Stocks tank.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

USD continues to hold onto recent gains, Stocks crashed (NASDAQ -4.17% Friday to close a miserable April and register its biggest daily loss since September and a weekly loss of -3.9%), Asian markets weaker (many closed due to Eid holidays) and European FUTS down over 1.5%. (UK closed today). Yields jumped higher and VIX soared over 7% to 31.30. Oil & Gold both rallied and then gave up all their gains. Weekend data – Chinese Manu & Services PMI’s (47.4 vs 49.5 & 41.9 vs. 48.4) the worst in 2 yrs as lockdowns grip the economy. Berkshire Hathaway invested over $51bn in Q1 inc. Chevron (over $21bn), Occidental ($10bn), HP ($4.2bn) &  Alleghany ($11.6bn). US House speaker, Pelosi visited Ukraine promising support ‘until fight is done’.

* USDIndex cooled to under 103.00 on Friday, closed at 103.18, and is back to 103.45, now. April opened at 98.29, a near 5% gain.
* Equities – USA500 -155.57 (-3.63%) at 4131. – US500FUTS at 4145 now. AMZN   -14.05%, INTEL -6.94% MSFT & NFLX -4%, APPL -3.66%.  Nasdaq lost -13% in April (worst since 2008 Fin. Crisis) S&P500 has lost -13% in 2022 (the worst Jan-April since 1939). 50% of S&P500 companies have reported this Earnings season and 81% have exceeded expectations (average 66%). But outlooks (partic. from AZMN & APPL) have weighed. Volatility is back too, Jan-April there were 33 days with +/- 2% daily moves, in all of 2021 there were just 24.   
* Yields moved significantly higher 10-yr closed at 2.887%. Up 1.96% today, at 2.942
* Oil  & Gold both had a volatile session moved higher and then reversed to trade lower today. USOil tested to $108.00 on Friday but trades at $103.85 now. Gold tested $1920 zone Friday and trades at $1885 now, below key $1900 handle.

* FX markets – EURUSD down to 1.0525, USDJPY up from 129.40 to 133.30 now and Cable recovered to 1.2550 now from 1.2410 lows on Friday.

Overnight –  JPY – Consumer Confidence missed 33 vs 34.9 and Final Manu PMI in line at 53.5.

Week Ahead – The focus remains on inflation and the much anticipated response from the FOMC, RBA and BOE this week, while the markets price in action from the ECB down the road. The advent of month-end, a holiday in Japan on Friday, and the UK shut today accelerated some profit taking on Wall Street after the early rally. It looks as though many are sidelined into the weekend and ahead of the FOMC where there is a lot of uncertainty over the aggressiveness of the Fed’s normalization path, and the BOE’s ambiguity. Hiking rates too much too quickly would only increase the risk of a stagflation scenario and the BOE’s current policy is already much closer to neutral than the ECB’s. The week also sees NFP, and employment data from Canada, Europe and New Zealand.

Today –  German Retail Sales, US ISM Manufacturing, EU Energy Ministers meeting, (Hungary would veto sanctions on Russian energy) Earnings from Italgas, Holidays in UK, China and many Asian countries.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) USDJPY (+0.49%) Rallied from lows under 1129.40 Friday to 130.45 highs today. Next resistance 130.50 MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram moving higher, RSI 54 & rising, H1 ATR 0.263, Daily ATR 1.38.

Date : 6th May 2022.

Market Update – May 6 – Massive U-turn ahead of NFP.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

The markets did a big U-turn after Wednesday’s post-FOMC rally, and the pop in rates hammered Wall Street. Along with positioning, the recent massive swings in the markets and mostly bearish tones have been fostered by escalating fears over inflation, an overly aggressive tightening path from the Fed, and increasing angst over slowing growth, in other words, “stagflation.” That potential was imbedded in the Q1 productivity report that revealed near record contraction in productivity as well as unit labour costs, leaving a hollow ring to Chair Powell’s beliefs that the Fed can tame inflation and that the economy can achieve a “softish” landing with a “significant chance” of avoiding a “significant slowdown, or a big jump in unemployment.”

RBA flags further tightening ahead. The RBA said in its quarterly monetary policy report that it will need to raise interest rates further, against the background of tightening labour markets that risk triggering a wage price spiral.

* USDIndex at a 5th winning week – breached 103.95. Currently at 103.84 ahead of US jobs report that is likely to back the case for aggressive monetary policy tightening.
* Equities – was crushed by the revived hawkish outlook and the pop in yields. The USA100 dove over -5% but finished with a -4.99% decline. The USA500 tumbled -3.56%, with the USA30 -3.12% lower.
* Yields 10-year up 17 bps to 3.105%, with the 2-year up 10 bps to 2.738%.
* Oil climbed to 111.36 high, after the Biden administration outlined a plan to refill oil reserves (SPR). But it has dropped right back down to 109.34. Reportedly, the Department of Energy will put out a tender for 60 mln barrels in the fall, according to an unnamed source. But the purchases will be at some time in the future, which saw the price fall back. Having the government an assured buyer should provide some support. Meanwhile, the looming EU ban on Russian oil imports and the less hawkish than feared FOMC result have helped calm fears. There were no surprises from OPEC which stuck to its plan for a modest hike in output.
* Gold drifted back to 1866 as the USD and Treasury yields rallied.
* Bitcoin tumbled 8% overnight, hitting at 35,278.
* FX markets – EURUSD at 1.0508, USDJPY holds above the 130.50, Cable down to  1.2333. AUD turns below 0.7100.



Biggest FX Mover @ (06:30 GMT) GBPCHF (-0.73%) declined in the EU open at 1.2157, with next support to 1.2114.  MAs & Stochastics bearishly crossed, and RSI is at 36 sloping lower. H1 ATR 0.00169, Daily ATR 0.01081.
