    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 30th May 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: Treasury yields moved up from yesterday’s lows and the 10-year is at 2.804%, up 2.3 bp on the day, but still firmly below 3% as confidence in the Fed rate path evaporates amid widening market turmoil. Yields in Asia remained under pressure as risk aversion dominated and 10-year JGB yields are down -0.5 bp at 0.016% while the sell off in stocks continued. The Nikkei is down -1.54%, Hang Seng and CSI 300 lost -1.63% and -1.29% respectively after the U.S. closed with broad losses.Spanish yields meanwhile are still jumping higher and gained 10.6 bp so far, suggesting special factors rather than a wider stabilisation of sentiment is at play in the case of Italy. The situation looks similar at the short end, where the Italian 2-year yield is down -47.3 bp. Italy’s political turmoil and renewed concern about trade tensions between China and the U.S. continued to weigh on sentiment and a stronger yen added to pressure on Japanese markets. U.S. futures are also heading south and the correction in stocks doesn’t seem to have run its course yet. The calendar still has the Swiss KOF, French consumer spending and Q1 GDP, German jobless numbers, ESI economic confidence data and most importantly preliminary German HICP inflation, with the latter expected to pick up to 1.8% y/y.

    German retail sales jump 2.3% m/m in April. A much stronger rebound from the dip in March than anticipated. With March numbers revised up to -0.4% m/m from -0.6% m/m, the annual rate still fell back to 1.2% from 1.7% y/y in the previous month, although the timings of Easter are likely to still distort the annual comparison. The numbers are volatile and often subject to heavy revisions, but the rebound over the month is still a positive sign after a raft of disappointing data that cast a shadow over the German growth outlook.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 31st May 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are down -0.5 bp at 2.850%, while yields rose across Asia as stock markets rallied. 10-year GDP yields are up 0.5 bp at 0.028%, Australia and China underperformed. Like European and U.S. stocks yesterday, equity markets across Asia recovered from the bout of heightened risk aversion as Eurozone breakup risks were being priced out again. China’s official manufacturing PMI unexpectedly improved which saw CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp outperforming with gains of 1.81% and 1.55% respectively. Topix and Nikkei are up 0.56% and 0.81% and the Hang Seng gained 0.91%. There is still plenty of risk with Sino-American trade relations in focus and U.S. tariff exemptions set to run out tomorrow and the Italian crisis is also far from over. So volatility is likely to remain high over the summer, complicating the tasks for global central banks that were heading for more policy normalisation.

    FX Action: USDJPY has settled in the mid 108.0s after failing to sustain gains above 109.0 yesterday. Yen crosses are also lower, reflecting a generally firmer yen, albeit moderately so. This is turn reflects a more circumscribed view markets are taking of the situation in Italy, which has returned a bid to the Japanese currency. The Washington Post has also reported, citing three unnamed sources, that President Trump will later today announce tariffs on steel and aluminium on imports from Canada, Mexico and the EU. The month’s end has reportedly generated some demand for the Japanese currency, too. In data, Japan’s April industrial production disappointed at 0.3% m/m growth. The median forecast had been for 1.4% m/m growth, though the data hasn’t had a bearing on forex markets.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 1st June 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: 10-year Bund yields are up 4.5 bp at 0.378% in opening trade, 2-year yields gained 3.6 bp and are at -0.643%. The rise in rates at the long end mirrors moves in Treasury and JGB yields, which lifted, the latter after the BoJ cut purchases of some debt at its regular operations. Peripherals are outperforming and the Italian 10-year is down -10.1 bp at 2.644%, after a last minute agreement with President Mattarella cleared the way for a populist coalition government, with Giuseppe Conte set to be sworn in today. Spain’s Rajoy meanwhile seems on the way out with the Socialists preparing to take control after reportedly gaining sufficient votes to win a vote of no confidence against Rajoy today. Stock futures are moving higher in Europe and the U.S. on the day Trump’s long announced tariffs finally come into effect. The EU’s countermeasures will start with the May 18 list of duties in U.S. goods ranging from Whiskey to Jeans, hardly the top of EU imports from the U.S. and there is lingering hope that despite the harsh tones from all sides, the high stakes will bring them back to the negotiating table. Data releases today focus on manufacturing PMI readings for the Eurozone, the U.K. and Switzerland.

    Trump administration’s announcement that it was proceeding with slapping tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from Canada. The U.S. also hit Mexico and the EU with the same tariff (even though Mexico is a net buyer of U.S. steel and aluminium), and all three rapidly responded with announcements of counter tariffs. This weighed on global stock markets and underpinned safe havens, including the yen. In the mix were a bag of perky U.S. data releases, including weekly initial claims, personal income and the latest Chicago PMI survey, a spike in Eurozone HICP to 1.9% y/y in the preliminary May estimate from 1.2% y/y in April, above-forecast China manufacturing PMI and a miss in Japanese production data for April.

    Canada announced plans to challenge the U.S. tariffs via both NAFTA and the WTO, while Macron of France declared them “a mistake and illegal.” Macron said the decision on the metals tariffs “closes the door on other talks,” though he plans to speak with Trump later tonight. The German economic minister said that the tariffs decision was damaging both for Europe and the U.S., but the transatlantic relationship remains extremely important for Germany.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * EU Final Manufacturing PMI – Expectations – expected to confirm preliminary numbers, leaving the Eurozone reading at a still robust 55.5.

    * UK Manufacturing PMI – Expectations –anticipate to dip to 53.5 in the headline reading from the 53.9 reading of April.

    * US NFP – Expectations – expected to rise 188,000 in May, following a weaker-than-expected April gain of 164,000.

    * US ISM Manufacturing PMI – Expectations – estimated to tick up to 58.1 from 57.3 in April.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 4th June 2018.




    Main Macro Events This Week

    The strength in the U.S. jobs report helped unwind a lot of the recent angst over trade tensions and geopolitical uncertainties that many investors feared were jeopardizing the global upswing in growth. The acceleration in the U.S. should override tariff worries, and the momentum should help offset the slowing out of Europe, especially as the uncertainties over the political situations in Italy and Spain have been resolved for now. The markets are likely to be consolidative this week as a number of factors impact.

    United States: This week’s calendar is light with few top tier reports, limited Treasury supply, and no Fedspeak given the blackout period ahead of the June 12, 13 FOMC meeting. Earnings have also slowed to a crawl. As for data, the May ISM non-manufacturing numbers (Tuesday) will be of most interest given the timeliness of the release. An increase by 0.7 point to 57.5 is expected, after falling 2.0 points to 56.8 in April, after hitting a 12-year high of 59.9 in January. The April JOLTS data (Tuesday) will add some details to the outlook but will be anticlimactic following the employment report. And while it continues to corroborate the strength in the labor market, it also suggests the market may not be as tight as perceived. The April trade report (Wednesday) will be tracked given the tariff uncertainties, and it will also help fine tune the improved Q2 GDP outlook.

    Canada: Canadian employment tops a busy week of economic data. The employment report (Friday) is expected to reveal a 20.0k bounce in jobs during May after the 1.1k dip in April, while the unemployment rate holds at a 40-year low 5.8%. The trade report (Wednesday) takes second place in the rankings of most-important-release-this-week, with the deficit expected to narrow to -C$2.8 bln in April from a -C$4.1 bln shortfall in March. Q1 productivity (Tuesday) is projected to slip 0.1% (q/q, sa) following the 0.2% gain in Q4. Building permits (Wednesday) are expected to fall 2.0% (m/m, sa) in April after the 3.1% rise in March values. The May Ivey PMI (Wednesday) is anticipated to slip to a still firm 70.0 in May from the seasonally adjusted 71.5 in April that was the firmest reading since the 73.2 seen in March of 2011. May housing starts (Friday) are expected to expand at a 215.0k unit pace, little changed from the 214.4k growth rate in April. Q1 capacity utilization (Friday) is seen rising to 86.1% from the 86.0% in Q4 that was strongest since Q2 of 2007’s matching 86.0%.

    The Bank of Canada publishes the twice annual Financial Stability Review (Thursday, 10:30 ET) with a press conference to follow at 11:15 ET. In the November Review, the Bank said the high level of household indebtedness and housing market vulnerabilities were the most important vulnerabilities.

    Europe: Political uncertainty in Italy and Spain may be resolved for now. But while the markets celebrated the new governments in Spain and Italy on Friday, the changes could spell trouble for the ECB and the stability of the Eurozone down the line if they bring uncontrolled deficit spending. With that in mind, and spreads having come in again, the chances that the ECB will commit to an end date for QE at the June 14 meeting are rising, especially after the jump in May HICP inflation. German orders data this week will be watched carefully, but even if data disappoints, it would further highlight that the central bank’s window of opportunity for the next step toward policy normalization is closing. Wrapping the end of QE in dovish guidance may be the best way to deal with the current uncertainty.

    This week’s round of data includes key German reports, including the April manufacturing orders (Thursday) which are expected to show a 0.7% m/m rebound. German industrial production for April (Friday) and the trade balance (Friday). Final Eurozone Q1 GDP is widely expected to be confirmed at 0.4% q/q, but comes with a slight downward bias, after the revision to the final French reading. The earlier timing of Easter and adverse weather conditions left their mark on growth in the first quarter and the data are too backward looking to really change the outlook.The calendar also has final Eurozone May services PMI, Eurozone retail sales and PPI inflation, and a German I/L bond auction Thursday, followed by a 5-year Bobl auction Wednesday. France sells bonds Thursday.

    UK: Brexit negotiations will continue this week while the data schedule is fairly quiet, highlighted by the release of the construction and services PMI surveys for May (due Monday and Tuesday, respectively). The construction PMI expected to come in with a headline reading of 52.0, down from 52.5 in April, which would indicate a modest slowing in the pace of expansion. Market participants will be keeping a watch out on the evolving Brexit negotiation, which is in a crucial phase and which remains fluid.

    Japan: In Japan, April personal income and PCE (Tuesday) should show consumption rising to a 1.0% y/y pace from the previous -0.7%. The second look at Q1 GDP (Friday) is penciled in at -0.4% q/q, modestly improving from the preliminary -0.6% pace. The April current account surplus (Friday) is set to narrow to JPY 2,000.0 bln from 3,122.3 bln.

    China’s trade balance (Friday) will get a lot of attention given the trade tensions with the U.S., though we shouldn’t be able to discern any impacts. The balance was at a $28.8 bln surplus in April with gains of 12.7% y/y for exports and 21.5% y/y for imports.

    Australia: The RBA’s policy meeting (Tuesday) is expected to result in no change to the current 1.50% rate setting. In the April meeting, Governor Lowe repeated that the low level of interest rates is supporting the economy. Something similar is expected in the June statement, consistent with a low for long outlook for policy. The data slate is highlighted by Q1 GDP (Wednesday), expected to accelerate to a 0.7% growth rate (q/q, sa) from the 0.4% pace in Q1. Retail sales (Monday) are projected to expand 0.4% (m/m, sa) in April after the flat reading in March. The current account (Tuesday) is projected to narrow to a -A$9.0 bln deficit in Q1 from -A$14.0 bln in Q4. The trade balance (Thursday) is seen narrowing to a A$1.1 bln surplus in April from A$1.5 bln in March.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 5th June 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are down -0.5 bp at 2.937%, 10-year JGBs unchanged at 0.040%. After putting trade concerns aside and focusing on U.S. growth during the Monday session, stock markets struggled in Asia. The RBA left rates on hold as expected and maintained cautious optimism on the global and local growth outlook while suggesting that wage growth may have bottomed out, which saw the ASX underperforming and down -0.35%. Nikkei and Topix are up 0.20% and down -0.05% respectively, the Hang Seng gained 0.22% and the CSI outperformed with a 0.81% gain. A mixed picture, with markets appearing to take a wait and see stance. U.S. stock futures are slightly in the red, oil prices are slightly higher and the front end Nymex future is trading at USD 65.02 per barrel.

    FX Action: EURUSD has steadied above the N.Y. low of 1.1677, though continues to find sellers ahead of the 1.1700 mark. The pairing has steadied well above last week’s 11-month low of 1.1508, largely as the worst of the European political meltdown appears to be behind us for now. This said, there may still be some political fissures yet to bubble up, so EURUSD is expected to remain in sell-the-rally mode.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * EU Markit Services PMI – Expectations – expected to be confirmed at 53.9, leaving the composite at 54.1, down from the previous month, but still pointing to a solid pace of expansion and at least for the manufacturing sector market reported ongoing job creation amid capacity constraints and an overall optimistic view on the outlook over the next 12 months.

    * UK Services PMI- Expectations – a dip is anticipated to 53.0 in the headline reading after 52.8 in April.

    * US May ISM non-manufacturing PMI – Expectations – will be of most interest given the timeliness of the release. A 0.7 point increase has been forecasted to 57.5, after falling 2.0 points to 56.8 in April, after hitting a 12-year high of 59.9 in January. The slight improvement will leave the service sector tracking the expected performance for the May factory surveys which are showing improvement. These readings remain robust, supported by fiscal stimulus as well as stronger global growth.

    * Canadian Q1 productivity – Expectations – projected to slip 0.1% (q/q, sa) following the 0.2% gain in Q4.

    * Speeches: UK MPC Member Cunliffe, German Buba President Weidmann, RBA Assist Gov Bullock

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 6th June 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: Risk appetite is back and stocks in Asia moved mostly higher in tandem with U.S. futures. Treasury yields picked up and the 10-year yield is at 2.939%, up 1.1 bp. 10-year JGB yields climbed 0.3 bp to 0.043%. Concerns about rising protectionism seem on hold for now, and Nikkei and Topix are up 0.39% and 0.12% respectively, the Hang Seng gained 0.52%. The CSI 300 meanwhile is down -0.20%, in tandem with Shanghai and Shenzen Comps amid lingering concerns about Sino-American relations. U.S. stock futures meanwhile are broadly higher and oil prices are set for a second day of gains and currently trading at USD 65.89 per barrel.

    FX Update: Both the dollar and yen have traded softer against most other currencies. EURUSD has edged out a two-week high at 1.1734. EURJPY also posted a two-week peak, though the euro has traded more mixed (i.e. net neutral) versus other currencies, with euro crosses having flattened out for the most part out after rallying over the last week on the shifting Italian political situation. Concerns remain about how viable a government Italy’s unusual Five Star and League populist parties will make; about whether their anti-establishment, Eurosceptic colours will start to show through in policy. USDJPY has remained buoyant, near yesterday’s two-week high at 110.00, aided by AUDJPY strength following forecast-beating GDP data out of Australia, along with a backdrop of mostly higher stock markets in Asia. Strength in tech stocks helped lift stock markets, while Beijing said today that it would buy $70 worth of U.S. goods if the Trump administration lifts steel and aluminium tariffs. Cable built on gains seen yesterday, lifting into two-week high territory above 1.3400. AUDUSD, buoyed by solid Australian growth data, rallied over 0.5% in making a six-week high at 0.7672.

    * Canadian Trade Balance & Building Permits – Expectations – the deficit expected to narrow to -C$2.8 bln in April from a -C$4.1 bln shortfall in March. Building permits are expected to fall 2.0% (m/m, sa) in April after the 3.1% rise in March values.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 7th June 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: Stock markets continued to move higher during the Asian session on improving confidence in the world economy and despite the prospect of tensions at the G7 meeting over the future of trade relationships and U.S. sanctions. The fact that central banks remain on course to reduce stimulus seems to be seen as a sign that the recovery remains intact rather than a threat to equities, at least for now. 10-year Treasury yields are little changed at 2.968%, down -0.4 bp, 10-year JGBs gained 0.4 bp and are at 0.043% amid a broad move higher in yields across Asia. Nikkei and Topix gained 0.93% and 0.66% respectively. The Hang Seng is up 0.48%, the ASX 0.55%. Mainland China bourses meanwhile erased early gains and are in the red. with concerns about Sino-American trade relations continuing to weigh. U.S. futures are higher though – confirming that the overall mood in equity markets is improving. Oil prices have moved up from lows below USD 65 per barrel and are trading at USD 65.10.

    German orders slumped -2.5% m/m in April, with the March reading revised down to -1.1% from -0.9%. The second months of contraction left the annual rate at -0.1%, down from 2.9% y/y in March and the first negative reading since July 2016. Expectations had been for a rebound from the dip in the previous month and while there may be some special factors still at play related to holiday’s and bridging days, the numbers are a worry and will add to concerns that the German recovery is slowing down much faster than feared. The breakdown showed domestic orders in particular weighing down the index, with a drop of -4.8% m/m. Again this may be due to special factors, but the fact that export orders rose for a second months and that Eurozone orders slumped -9.9% m/m, after already falling -2.9% m/m in March cast a shadow over the outlook. This won’t prevent the ECB from phasing out QE by the end of the month, but it highlights that the window of opportunity for the change in direction at the ECB is closing faster than previously thought.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 8th June 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: Risk aversion is back and Asian stock markets headed south. After a sell off in the tech-heavy Nasdaq Thursday, technology stocks were also under pressure during the Asian session. Treasury yields meanwhile recovered some of the losses seen in the wake of the weakness in U.S. stocks yesterday, but after reaching a high of 2.479% have started to fall back to now 2.928%, still up 0.7 bp on the day. Asian yields are broadly lower, with 10-year JGBs down -0.2 bp at 0.037%. Stock indices meanwhile are a sea of red, with the Nikkei down -0.35%, the Hang Seng and CSI 300 down -1.35% and -1.37% after narrower than expected trade surplus out of China. China added to the risk off environment and the focus turns to the G7 meeting, which is likely to bring clashes over sanctions and trade. U.S. futures are down and the WTI crude oil is trading at USD 65.75 per barrel.

    German trade surplus narrows as exports decline. Germany reported a sa trade surplus of EUR 18.4 bln for April, down from EUR 21.6 bln in the previous month. Meanwhile, German industrial production contracted -1.0% m/m. Expectations had been for a slight rise over the month, but after the unexpected slump in orders yesterday, the weak production number is not a total surprise. At the same time, March data were revised up to 1.7% m/m from 1.0% m/m reported initially, so the trajectory is not as weak as the headline suggests. Annual growth slowed to a still healthy 2.0%, but nevertheless the weakness in orders and surveys showing a markedly less optimistic view on the outlook confirm that the German cycle has peaked and that growth is slowing down. Capacity constraints are partly to blame, but worries about the export outlook amid an increasingly hostile trade environment are clearly also having an impact.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * G7 Meeting

    * Canadian Housing Starts – Expectations – to hold nearly steady at a 215.0k pace in May from 214.4k in April. Starts have been resilient, holding in a 215k to 230k range since December while existing home sales and prices tumbled beginning in January as new regulations took effect. The resilience in starts growth is consistent with firm underlying momentum in Canada’s housing market.

    * Canadian Employment Data – Expectations – to rise 20.0k in May after the 1.1k dip in April. A gain in May would resume the gains seen in February (+15.4k) and Mach (+32.3k) that followed the 88.0k tumble in January.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 11th June 2018.




    Main Macro Events This Week

    The G-6 (+1) held testy meetings on trade in La Malbaie, Quebec, over the weekend in an “extraordinary” session on trade amid attempts to accelerate negotiations on NAFTA and embark on a new dialogue between the U.S. and EU, after Trump leveled a pointed critique of the present “unfair” trading system. The potentially ill-fated “communique” spoke to deep divisions, though Trump was fairly upbeat on shared G-7 “values and beliefs” in his early exit speech, while sticking to his guns on trade reciprocity. Once past the dysfunctional G-7 family reunion in Canada, attention will now quickly revert to a weighty week in terms of geopolitics and monetary policy. Thus, the markets will have to face a lot of major uncertainties with respect to the outcomes of the Trump-Kim Summit on Tuesday, and the FOMC, ECB, and BoJ results on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, respectively.

    United States: The U.S. economic calendar for the week of June 11 will be a busy one, with the FOMC meeting on tap and readings on inflation and consumption on the calendar. Economic data will include CPI and PPI, and both are estimated to firm further above the Fed’s 2% target. Retail sales are expected to post a solid gain. Import prices should rise mostly owing to gains in oil prices. The Empire State index may moderate to a still-strong June reading, while industrial production should post a modest May gain, held back by manufacturing. June Michigan sentiment is projected to edge up from the May reading, and business inventories should rise in April.

    A couple other Fed events are sprinkled in the calendar this week as well, though completely overshadowed by the FOMC meeting and surrounding blackout period. The Senate Banking Committee will vote (Tuesday) on the nominations of Richard Clarida for vice chairman and Michelle Bowman for Fed governor. The Fed board will also hold an open meeting (Thursday) on the final rule to establish single-counterparty credit limits for large financial firms. And Dallas Fed hawk Kaplan addresses business leaders (Friday) in Fort Worth, Texas.

    FOMC: is one among several key events ahead that could rattle the markets, alongside ongoing trade uncertainties. With a 25 bp tightening by the FOMC a near Fait accompli, attention will be on the SEP and forward guidance, including the dots, as well as any tweaks to the IOER. The Fed is expected to maintain the median dot projection of three rate hikes this year, though there’s speculation of a bump up to four. The 2019 outlook expected to be left unchanged at three tightenings as well, underscoring the “gradualist” mantra. The FOMC may increase the IOER by 20 bps (versus 25 bps), as postulated in the FOMC minutes. As such, the dots and the smaller IOER move could be taken slightly dovishly by the bond market that is positioned for a more hawkish stance here, and from the ECB, which could shroud its QE moves in dovish language. Note, there is also a Powell press conference, but no major new insights to be forthcoming are expected. Out of the three central bank meetings next week, the BoJ’s could be the most uneventful.

    Canada: May existing home sales (expected Friday) and the April manufacturing survey (Friday) are the lone highlights. Housing price reports at mid-week also feature. Manufacturing shipment values are expected to climb 1.0% in April after the 1.4% gain in March. Existing home sales are seen up 1.0% (m/m, sa) after the 2.9% decline in April. The new housing price index (Thursday) is projected to fall 0.1% in April (m/m, sa) after the flat reading in March. The Teranet/National housing price index for May is due on Wednesday. There is nothing scheduled from the Bank of Canada this week, but there is scope from comments from policy makers on the sidelines of the G-7.

    Europe: The ECB meeting on Thursday will be squarely in focus this week after officials indicated that this will be a “live” meeting and pretty much confirmed that the central bank is finally ready to commit to an end date for QE. Rather than delaying the announcement of the widely expected “phasing out” of the remaining EUR 30 bln of net asset purchases, recent market jitters and data misses seem to have sparked a sense of urgency at the ECB. A possible confirmation of the sequencing of rate moves and exit steps aside, Draghi expected to remain non-committal on rates, however, and wrap the announcement on the end of QE in dovish language to maintain balance and prevent the EUR from running away higher with rate expectations.

    The ECB meeting will overshadow the data calendar, which will focus on final inflation readings for May and the June ZEW investor confidence reading out of Germany. Inflation numbers are unlikely to hold any surprises. May numbers confirmed that special factors contributed to be weaker than anticipated readings over the previous month and with improvements on labor markets adding to gradually rising wages, inflation is clearly on the way higher. At the same time growth indicators have been weaker than expected. Confidence data in particular remains impacted by recent market volatility and concerns about the outlook for world trade and Eurozone growth amid wider Geo-political tensions and growing EMU-fatigue at home. Against that background, the German ZEW Economic Sentiment (Tuesday) is seen falling back to -11.0 from -8.2, with the number of those pessimistic about the outlook rising steadily. Real economic data also continues to disappoint and after weak national Eurozone production (Wednesday) and trade numbers (Friday) are unlikely to show anything but ongoing weakness at the start of the second quarter.

    UK: Incoming data and BoE-speak have kept alive prospects for a 25 bp hike in the repo rate as soon as the August MPC meeting, when the central bank next publishes its quarterly Inflation Report. May PMI surveys showed headline strength, and while key components, such as new business, pointed to an abatement in activity, with Brexit-related uncertainty getting a specific mention from respondents. Wages have been rising in the context of a tight labour market as well — something that won’t have gone unnoticed by the BoE — which has signalled that diminishing slack in the economy and low productivity growth have generated a need for gradual tightening.

    The calendar this week is packed, highlighted by (in chronological order), April industrial production and trade data (Monday), monthly labour data covering the April-May period (Tuesday), May inflation numbers (Wednesday), and May retail sales (Thursday).

    Japan: The June MoF business outlook survey (Tuesday) is seen at 4.0 from 3.3 previously. May PPI (Tuesday) should warm to 2.1% y/y from 2.0%. The April tertiary industry index (Tuesday) is pencilled in at up 0.5% from -0.3% in March. Revised April industrial production is due Thursday. The BoJ’s two day meeting, beginning Thursday, is expected to result in no change to the Bank’s huge stimulus program, as economic data since the meeting in April has been mostly disappointing. A news report circulated last week that the Bank may consider reducing the forecasts for inflation in fiscal 2018 and further out, as slow CPI growth in April was an unexpected development for the BoJ. A lengthening in the time frame needed to reach the BoJ’s target would indeed be a relatively dovish development, moving the time frame for rate hikes even further down the road.

    China: May fixed investment (Thursday) is forecast at up 7.1% y.y from 7.0%. May industrial production is seen slowing to a 6.5% y/y pave from 7.0%, while May retail sales are pencilled in at up 9.5% y/y from 9.4%.

    Australia: The employment report (Thursday) is the focus, with the data calendar otherwise fairly thin. Employment is expected to climb 20.0k in May after the 22.6k gain in April. The unemployment rate is seen holding at 5.6%. Housing finance (Tuesday) is projected to rebound 1.0% in April after the 2.2% drop in March. The Reserve Bank of Australia’s Assistant Governor Ellis delivers a speech (Friday), while Governor Lowe speaks on “Productivity, Wages and Prosperity” (Wednesday). Markets are closed on Monday.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 12th June 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: Core yields moved higher and stock markets were underpinned as Trump tweeted enthusiastically about the summit with North Korea’s leader. The G7 turbulence was quickly shrugged off yesterday as the focus turned to the Trump/Kim meeting, which will be followed by three key central bank meetings this week. 10-year Treasury yields are up 0.6 bp at 2.957%, 10-year JGB yields rose 0.5 bp to 0.042%, Stock markets moved mostly higher across Asia with Topix and Nikkei up 0.40% and 0.44% respectively with a weaker yen adding support. Hang Seng and CSI 300 are up 0.48% and 0.39% so far, the ASX rose 0.15%. with a stronger currency weighing. US futures are also in the green, oil prices are up and the WTI is trading at USD 66.24 per barrel.

    FX Action: The dollar traded moderately firmer heading into the London interbank open, led by a 0.3% gain in USDJPY, which logged a three-week high just shy of 110.50. Yen crosses also firmed up, reflecting broader softness in the yen as safe haven premiums unwound amid a cautious sense of optimism in global markets about the Trump-Kim summit, which has just ended. The summit produced a joint signing of an “important document,” though details about its content have not, so far, been made available. The summit produced images of cordiality and rhetoric (and tweets) of optimism — rhetoric emphasizing historical turning points and of new relationships and prospects for peace etc. Whether Kim actually it turns out that committed to team Trump’s demands for full and verifiable commitment to denuclearization remains to be seen, but, if he didn’t, whatever baby-step towards this grand goal Kim has offered looks to have been satisfactory to Trump. Assuming things remain upbeat, and global stock market direction remains tilted upwards, the yen would likely remain on a softening path, and USDJPY on a firming path. Among other pairings, EURUSD dipped to a two-session low of 1.1742 in the wake of the Tokyo fix before settling around 1.1770. Cable, which took a hit yesterday from big misses in UK production and trade data, posted a one-week low of 1.3341.

    Charts of the Day

    * German ZEW Economic Sentiment – Expectations – falling back to -14.0 from -8.2, with the number of those pessimistic about the outlook rising steadily.

    * US CPI and Core – Expectations – CPI is expected to rise 0.2% for May, following a similar gain in April. Core prices are estimated to rise 0.2% as well after a tepid 0.1% April reading.
