    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 18th July 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury and JGB yields moved slightly higher, as is appetite improved and stock markets advanced across Asia with the Fed Chairman Powell injecting fresh life into equity markets with an upbeat assessment of the US economy. Positive leads from the US and a record high in the NASDAQ helped to underpin sentiment in Asia amid mixed earnings reports this week. Topix and Nikkei are up 0.48% and 0.71% respectively. The Hang Seng gained 0.20% so far and the CSI 300 0.59%, while the ASX is up 0.61%. Improved risk appetite saw 10-year Treasury yields rising 0.5 bp to 2.866% and 10-year JGB yields are up 0.7 bp at 0.035%, while yields declined in China, Australia and New Zealand. US stock futures suggest further gains in US markets today. The WTI future is down on the day and trading at USD 67.68 per barrel.

    FX Update: The Dollar has traded firmer for a 2nd day, buoyed by an upbeat prognosis of the US economy and outlook by Fed chair Powell yesterday at his semi-annual testimony before the Senate Banking Committee. EURUSD descended to a 3-day low at 1.1631 while USDJPY ascended above 113.00 for the first time since January. AU-USD printed a 1-week low at 0.7363 and USDCAD a 3-week high at 1.3227. Powell’s remarks seemed to hit a sweet spot, having expressed optimism on the growth outlook while being somewhat circumscribed on inflation, which leaves the Fed on course for another 25 bp hike in September, and another in December, but not to the displeasure of equity investors, who have also been encouraged by positive Q2 corporate earnings announcements, and expectations for more to come. In the UK, the Prime Minister once again survived a key vote on a Brexit-related bill by the skin of her teeth last night (although lost one concerning the regulation of medicines after Brexit). So the PM and her government survives, but Brexit process is looking borderline disorderly.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * UK CPI & Retail Sales – Expectations – June CPI is expected to tick upward, to 2.6% y/y from the unexpected dip in the prior month to 2.4%, which would be consistent with BoE projections made in its May Inflation Report. As for Retail Sales, growth of 0.2% m/m in June is anticipated, down from the strong 1.3% m/m growth that was posted in May.

    * Eurozone CPI – Expectations – Eurozone HICP inflation reached 2.0% y/y with the preliminary release, thus hitting ECB’s upper limit for price stability. However, with French as well as Italian HICP rates revised down by 0.1 percentage points with the final numbers, there is the chance of a downward revision to the final reading. Even with a slight downward revision we don’t expect ECB to be changing its key policy parameters which include the phasing out of net asset purchases by the end of the year.

    * US Building Permits – Expectations – estimated to be falling 2.2% to 1.320 mln in June, following a 5.0% surge to a new cycle-high of 1.350 mln in May.

    * Fed Chair Powell Testimony for a 2nd day

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 19th July 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: Bond as well as stock markets traded mixed during the Asian session. 10-year Treasury yields rose 1.7 bp to 2.886%, after Fed Chairman Powell’s hearing did little to derail rate hike expectations. 10-year JGB yields meanwhile dropped -0.3 bp to 0.031%, as the BoJ cut back its purchases of longer-maturity bonds for the first time since January. Australian 10-year yields surged 3.3 bp as Australia employment surged, thus underpinning expectations for wage growth, inflation and a rate hike further down the line. Stock markets are narrowly mixed, with Topix and Nikkei up 0.03% and down -0.06% respectively. The Hang Seng is down -0.12%, the CSI 300 down -0.09%. The ASX 200 is up 0.36% after the strong employment numbers, but US stock futures are also trading narrowly mixed. Oil prices are marginally higher on the day with the WTI future trading at USD 68.78 per barrel.

    Australia employment surged 50.9k in June, well in excess of expectations following the 13.4k rise in May (was +12.0k). The details were upbeat, as full time employment rose 41.2k after a 19.9k drop (was -20.6k). Part time jobs grew 9.7k after a 33.4k gain (was +32.6k). The unemployment rate was 5.4% in June, matching May. The participation rate rose to 65.7% from 65.5%, restraining the unemployment rate. This report is strong, but it is not likely to persuade RBA to raise rates anytime soon given still non-threatening underlying inflation growth and concerns about downside risk to China’s outlook. Moreover, the July meeting minutes saw the Bank observing that there is likely ongoing excess capacity in the labour market. AUDUSD jumped to 0.7435 on the surprisingly strong job gain, from about 0.7400, before slipping slightly to 0.7425.

    * UK Retail Sales – Expectations – growth of 0.3% m/m in June is anticipated, down from the strong 1.3% m/m growth that was posted in May.

    * US Philly Fed Manufacturing Index – Expectations – Expected to rise to 21.0 in July, after falling to a 19-month low of 19.9 in June.

    * US Jobless Claims – Expectations – estimated to be rising to 220K, following the 214K last week.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 20th July 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: The September 10-year Bund future opened at 163.16, up from 163.08 at yesterday’s close. The 10-year cash yield is down -0.1 bp at 0.326% in early trade, versus a 1.1 bp gain in US Treasury yields. Asian Stock and Bond markets traded mixed after China devalued the yuan, which saw Chinese 10-year yields jumping 5.6 bp, and Chinese stocks rallying, while Topix and Nikkei are still slightly down on the day. European Stock Futures meanwhile are heading south, with trade jitters continuing to weigh. Released at the start of the session German PPI inflation accelerated to 3.0% y/y as expected and largely thanks to base effects from higher energy prices. The data calendar still has Eurozone current account data as well as UK Public Finance numbers.

    The PBoC devalued the Yuan by the most for a single day since June 2016, with USDCNY’s reference rate set at 6.7671, up from yesterday’s 6.7066 and the highest in a year. The offshore Yuan fell over 0.5% to a 6.8358 low versus the Dollar, a level not seen since late July last year, before recouping to 6.8212 amid reports of major state banks buying the Yuan in what most market participants and onlookers take as Beijing-directed intervention to prevent a rapid tumble in the currency. The weaker setting of the reference rate comes hot on the heels of President Trump’s latest venting about China’s currency valuation, deepening concerns about the evolving Sino-US trade war.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * UK Public Sector Net Borrowing – Expectations – is expected at 3.6B from 3.4B last month.

    * Canadian CPI – Expectations – The CPI is expected to slip 0.1% in June (m/m, nsa) after the surprisingly slim 0.1% gain in May, as falling gasoline prices impact in June. The annual growth rate is seen at 2.2% (y/y, nsa), matching the 2.2% y/y clip in May. The three core CPI measures are expected to maintain 1.9% annual rate of expansion in June.

    * Canadian Core Retail Sales – Expectations – Retail sales are seen snapping back 1.0% in May after the 1.2% loss in April that was blamed on poor weather during the month (ice storm!). The ex-autos sales aggregate is seen rising 0.5% after an 0.1% dip.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd July 2018.




    Main Macro Events This Week

    Markets have had plenty to chew on over the past week or so and President Trump has been right at the sharp end of the action as his whirlwind tour took him through Brussels, London and finally Helsinki. In the process, he left friend and foe alike on notice over perceived inequities on military spending, trade alliances and post-cold war standing. The themes weren’t new, but the force and timing of the mixed political messages caused alarm overseas. A plethora of corporate earnings will dominate in the week ahead, along with any volatility arising from the ratcheting up of trade rhetoric.

    United States: The economic data calendar in the week of July 23 will be dominated by Q2 GDP growth, though we will have to wait until Friday for the release. A robust 4.1% pace is expected, with positive contributions from consumer spending, net exports and inventories. Also on tap will be existing home sales, which are estimated to rise, and new home sales, which are projected to fall, partially reversing a June surge. Durable orders should rebound from weakness in the prior two months while the advance trade numbers should reveal a deterioration. Finally, the final July reading of the Michigan Sentiment should be little-changed from a lower but still-strong early-July reading.

    Fedspeak: In theory, Fedspeak will go into hibernation ahead of the next Fed meeting set for July 31 – August 1, which is expected to result in a pause. Of course, more Trump frontal attacks on the Fed will heighten market interest in what should be an uneventful policy meeting, though the Committee itself will be unaffected. St. Louis Fed’s Bullard said last week in post-speech comments Fed will continue to take the best actions to achieve its dual mandate.

    Canada: The May Wholesale report (Monday) is expected to reveal a 0.7% gain in shipment values after the 0.1% increase in April. An as-expected result would be supportive of the projection for a 0.3% gain in May GDP (m/m, sa) following the 0.1% rise in April. Moreover, a firm May result would put Q2 GDP on track for a 2.8% gain (q/q, saar) that would match BoC’s estimate for the separate quarterly real GDP measure. Average weekly earnings for May (Thursday) are projected to gain 0.1% (m/m, sa) after the 0.3% drop in April. There is nothing scheduled from BoC this week, or until the September 5 announcement.

    Europe: The spotlight also will be on Draghi this week, although no major changes are expected to the ECB’s central message from June. Net Asset Purchases remain on course to be phased out by the end of the year, but Draghi may be under pressure to clarify the commitment to keep rates steady “through the summer” of 2019. The question is whether that excludes a move at the September 2019 meeting, as one ECB member seemed to imply, prompting a number of “source stories” suggesting that not everyone at the council would be happy to wait too long for the first move. Indeed, with the deposit rate still firmly in negative territory and underlying inflation on the way higher, the central bank may have to hike rates earlier than some expect, even if uncertainty about the global trade and growth outlook mean ECB is right to keep its options open.

    Data releases include the first reading of Q2 GDP from a major Eurozone country as well as first confidence data for the third quarter in the form of preliminary July PMI readings and July German Ifo confidence numbers. Growth indicators for the second quarter initially looked very shaky, but on the whole we still expect a rebound in quarterly growth and to see an acceleration in French Q2 GDP growth to 0.4% q/q from 0.2% q/q in Q2.

    UK: The focus will remain on Brexit negotiations, which haven’t exactly been going swimmingly. Last week, Prime Minister May’s fragile government only just managed to push through several bills on modifications to the newly-formed Brexit policy document, which will form the basis for negotiating with the EU. The European Commission stated last week that “everyone must now step up plans for all scenarios” ahead of March 29 next year, especially in the event of a no-deal exit. The Pound is trading about 13-14% lower in trade-weighted terms since the vote to leave the EU back in June 2016, much of which represents the Brexit discount that market participants are demanding. This discount is expected to persist.

    The calendar this week is relatively quiet, with the only highlights being provided by the July releases of the CBI industrial trends and distributive sales surveys (due Tuesday and Thursday, respectively). The Total Orders headline of the industrial trends survey expected to dip to a reading of 8, down from 13 in the previous month, and the realized sales headline of the retail survey to fall to a reading of 16 after 32 in the month prior. The CBI surveys don’t tend to cast much impact in markets due both the amount and breadth of participants, and the relatively small survey period.

    Japan: The calendar is quiet until Thursday, when June services PPI is due. The prices are expected to slow to a 0.1% y/y pace versus the prior 1.0% increase. July Tokyo CPI (Friday) is seen at an unchanged 0.6% y/y overall, and a steady 0.7% y/y clip on a core basis.

    Australia: The CPI (Wednesday) is expected to grow 0.5% in Q2 (q/q, sa) after the 0.4% rise in Q1. The Trade Price report (Thursday) is seen showing a 1.0% rise in Q2 import prices (q/q, sa) after the 2.1% bounce in Q1. A 2.0% drop in Q2 exports prices is projected after the 4.9% gain in Q1. The Q2 PPI is scheduled for release on Friday. The RBA is uncharacteristically silent until the August 7 meeting, where no change to the current 1.50% setting for the cash rate is expected.

    New Zealand: The trade report (Wednesday) is expected to show a narrowing in the surplus to NZ$200 mln in June from NZ$294 mln in May. There is nothing from the RBNZ this week. To review the June meeting, the RBNZ held rates at 1.75% and opened the door to a rate cut if necessary. The next move is anticipated to be a rate increase — but the expectation is for steady policy well into next year. The next meeting is on August 9.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 24th July 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: Yields continued to move higher during the Asian session, confirming that reports of policy tweaks at the BoJ have reminded traders that major central banks remain on course to take out more stimulus. 10-year JGBs yields initially corrected some of yesterday’s gains but recovered losses during the later part of the session, and yields mostly moved higher elsewhere in Asia as stock markets rallied. 10-year Treasury yields by contrast fell back from earlier highs and are down -0.6 bp at 2.949%. The 10-year JGB yield is now up 0.3 bp at 0.077%. 10-year yields rose 3.3 bp in China as the Yuan fell sharply amid signs that China is shifting towards monetary expansion, as the government presented measures designed to boost domestic demand. Still, while this may be a reaction to signs that the trade war will worsen the economic slowdown, the slip in the Yuan also adds to risks that the trade war will turn into a currency war. For now, though it has put a fire under Chinese equities in particular while rising yields aided financial companies. The CSI is up 1.55%, the Hang Seng gained 1.42%, and Topix and Nikkei are up 0.48% and 0.52% respectively. The ASX is also up 0.58%. US Stock futures are equally moving higher.

    FX Update: The Dollar is showing modest gains versus most currencies heading into the London interbank open, underpinned by the further rise in US 10-year T-note yield yesterday, which lifted to 5-week highs, pushing towards the 3.0% level again amid market speculation that Friday’s advance US Q2 GDP report will top the median forecast for 4.1% y/y growth. The USD index (DXY) lifted to two-session highs, while EURUSD printed a two-session low of 1.1666. USDJPY, in contrast, has traded with little direction in the lower 111.0s after yesterday printing a 3-day low at 110.75. Japanese exporters were reported buying Yen during the early part of the Tokyo session today, which contributed to driving USDJPY to an intraday low of 111.06. The pair subsequently lifted back some amid a backdrop of rallying stock markets in Asia, led by Chinese bourses on reports that Beijing will adopt a more “vigorous” fiscal policy, including corporate tax cuts.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 25th July 2018.




    FX News Today

    Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are down -1.3 bp at 2.936%, 10-year JGB yields are down -1.0 bp at 0.063% and long term yields are also down in Australia and New Zealand. BoJ didn’t scale back its bond purchases at today’s regular operation thus helping to ease concerns of policy tweaks. Hopes of stimulus measures in China continue to battle with trade jitters ahead of Trump’s meeting with European commission President Juncker and Asian markets are mixed, with Chinese underperforming and correcting some of the recent gains. Nikkei is up by 0.41%. US stock futures are heading south, Oil prices are higher and the September future is trading at USD 68.79 on a stock pile decrease.

    FX Update: The Aussie took a dip on Australian CPI data, which came in at 0.4% q/q in Q2, below the median forecast for 0.5%. AUDUSD fell nearly 0.5%, making an intraday low of 0.7392. Elsewhere, the Dollar majors have shown little net change. Commitment in markets has been limited, with strong corporate earnings and China’s course for fiscal stimulus offset by concerns about long-term trade protectionism. The Yuan logged fresh lows after PBoC set the USDCNY reference rate above 6.8. The focus today will fall on the meeting between President Trump and European Commission President Juncker, where few are holding out for any breakthrough on their differences on trade. USDJPY has remained settled in the lower 111.0s, above the 2-week low that was printed on Monday at 110.75, and EURUSD has held in a narrow range in the upper 1.1600s.

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * German IFO – Expectations – The latest German orders data showed a stronger than expected recovery – this is expected to help stabilize the Ifo reading, although after the revamp on the index to include the services sector, manufacturing doesn’t have quite the dominant role it used to have in the key German business confidence readings. Indeed PMI readings today showed services confidence falling against a pick up in manufacturing confidence. Against that background, the July Ifo is expected to be steady at 101.8.

    * US New Home Sales – Expectations – expected to fall 3.0% in June to 668k, following a 6.7% surge to 689k in May that reflected firm sales in the South.

    * Crude Oil Inventories

    * President Trump and European Commission President Juncker Meeting

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 26th July 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Fixed Income Outlook: 10-year Bund yields jumped higher in opening trade, in catching up with the jump in 10-year Treasury yields late Wednesday following Trump’s agreement with Juncker on trade talks that seemed to suspend the threat of auto-tariffs for now and sparked hopes that a trade war can be avoided. As of 06:22 AM GMT the 10-year Bund yield is up 2.2 bp at 0.414%, and while Treasury yields have pulled back from yesterday’s highs and are down -1.1 bp on the day, 10-year JGB yields are up 1.5 bp at 0.079%. Peripheral bonds are outperforming and European stock futures are rallying, led by a nearly 1.3% rise in GER30 futures. In theory a de-escalation of trade tensions would add to the arguments of the hawks at the ECB council meeting, which adds to pressure on Bunds, but China’s example has shown that the apparent truce may not last long and Draghi is likely to remain cautious.

    FX Update: The Yen has been trading firmer while the Dollar has been steady against most currencies. EURUSD edged out a fresh 4-day high of 1.1743 earlier in Asia, marginally extending the gain seen after the unexpectedly cordial meeting between President Trump and the EU’s Junker. USDJPY has remained heavy as the 10-year JGB yield lifted to a 1-year high of 0.89% amid prevailing speculation that BoJ could scale back its stimulus program, despite concurrent expectations for the central bank to trim inflation forecasts at its policy meeting next week. USDJPY printed a 17-day low of 110.66 late yesterday and has since ebbed back towards 110.70 after a brief rebound stalled near 111.00. The mood in equity markets has turned more negative after Wall Street was boosted in the late session yesterday as the US agreed to hold off on car tariffs. Some corporate earnings and/or circumspect corporate guidance, including from Facebook, General Motors, Ford and Fiat Chrysler, have soured sentiment somewhat, along with what some are calling “Trump fatigue.”

    Charts of the Day



    Main Macro Events Today

    * ECB Refinancing Rate – Expectations – No major changes are expected to ECB’s central message from June at today’s policy meeting. Net asset purchases remain on course to be phased out by the end of the year, but Draghi may be under pressure to clarify the commitment to keep rates steady “through the summer” of 2019. The question is whether that excludes a move at the September 2019 meeting, as one ECB member seemed to imply.

    * ECB Press Conference

    * US Durable Goods and Jobless Claims – Expectations – The Durable Goods orders are estimated rising 1.2% in June, after a 0.4% decline in May, and shipments should increase 1.5% with inventories up 0.3%. Initial Jobless claims are estimated to rebound 10k to 217k in the week ended July 21, following a 207k reading in the week of July 14 — a new 48-year low.

    * Tokyo Core CPI – Expectations – July Tokyo CPI is seen at an unchanged 0.6% y/y overall, and a steady 0.7% y/y clip on a core basis.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 27th July 2018.




    FX News Today

    European Market Outlook: German 10-year Bund yields are holding above the 0.4% mark in early trade, despite the weaker than expected French GDP number ahead of the open, but underpinned by a sharp acceleration in German import price inflation to 4.8% y/y. Peripherals are slightly outperforming this morning after Draghi’s dovish leaning take on rates, which counterbalance rising confidence at the central bank that underlying inflation will gradually move towards targets. European Stock futures are mostly higher, in tandem with US futures amid hopes of strong US growth and an easing of trade tensions. Chinese bonds outperformed as local Stock Indices headed south and amid signs that the People Bank of China is endorsing policies to underpin growth as China readies for a protracted trade conflict with the US. Hopes for stronger US growth and a NAFTA deal underpinned sentiment and helped markets to move past yesterday’s tech sell off in the US and Dow Jones (USA30), USA500 and NASDAQ futures are all moving higher. Oil prices are little changed on the day and trading at USD 69.61 per barrel. The calendar still has French consumer confidence numbers but markets will focus on US GDP numbers in the PM session.

    FX Update: The Dollar has been trading with a firming bias as markets anticipate a strong advance US GDP report for Q2, which will be released later today (and which President Trump and members of his administration have been flagging), though trading ranges have remained narrow thus far today. EURUSD edged out a 1-week low of 1.1637, and Cable and AUDUSD respective 3-day lows, of 1.3100 and 0.7372. USDJPY, meanwhile, remained below yesterday’s high at 111.25, though recovered back above 111.0 after a short-lived dip to 110.92. The low in USDJPY was seen as the 10-year JGB yield popped above 0.1% before a special yield-curve control buying operation by BoJ pushed it back below 0.1%. Japanese Tokyo CPI for July rose to 0.9% y/y from 0.6% y/y, above the 0.8% y/y figure expected. The PBoC set the USDCNY reference rate at 6.7942, up from yesterday’s 6.7662 rate.

    Main Macro Events Today

    * US PCE – Expectations – The core y/y PCE core prices expected to stick beyond the Fed’s 2.0% objective for a 3rd month in July, at 2.2%

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 30th July 2018.




    Main Macro Events This Week

    There’s plenty of data this week to provide clues, though tariff and trade uncertainties will continue to muddy the outlooks, especially as they impact growth and inflation dynamics. Meanwhile, central bank policies are in play with FOMC, BoE, and BoJ meetings.

    United States: Traders will be actively monitoring this week’s heavy data slate, including Nonfarm Payrolls, ISM, Vehicle Sales, Trade, the ECI, and Confidence. Additionally, the FOMC meets (Tuesday, Wednesday), but it should be a non-event. There’s also the advent of supply with the August Refunding announcement. The July Employment report (Friday) holds its usual top spot as the indicator of the month. The Unemployment rate is expected to dip back to 3.9%, while earnings should rise 0.3%. Nearly all labor market indicators have boasted of very tight conditions and extreme difficulty in finding qualified workers, which resulted in a huge jump in the labor force in June. The Manufacturing ISM (Wednesday) is projected to fall to 59.0 in July, from June’s 60.2, and down only slightly from the 14-year high of 60.8 from February, and would still reflect a robust rate of expansion. The Non-Manufacturing ISM (Friday) should decline to 58.0 in July, from 59.1 in June, and from the 12-year high of 59.9 in January. July Vehicle Sales (Wednesday) are expected to slow modestly to 17.2 mln from a 17.4 mln June pace.

    The June Trade Deficit (Friday) will get additional scrutiny for indications of trade flows. The deficit is estimated to narrow to an average -$135.7 bln in Q2, down from -$142.3 bln in Q1. Net exports detracted from growth in Q4 and Q1 but there was a strong positive contribution from this component in Q2 GDP. June Personal income and Consumption (Tuesday) should help fine tune Q2 GDP forecasts. The Q2 Employment Cost Index (Tuesday) is estimated rising 0.6%, moderating from a 0.8% gain in Q1. Also, July Consumer Confidence (Tuesday) is expected to rise to 127.0, from a 126.4 level in June. Confidence measures continued to be well-supported by the strength in the economy and the tight labor market.

    Canada: Canada releases its May GDP report (Tuesday) which will be the highlight of the week, though June trade (Friday) will also featuring prominently. The calendar is otherwise rather sparse, with the June industrial product price index (Tuesday) and the July Markit manufacturing PMI (Wednesday) rounding out the docket. GDP is expected to grow 0.2% in May (m/m, sa) after the 0.1% rise in April. Retail sales rebounded in May after a weather driven drop in April, supportive of firm GDP growth. Manufacturing and wholesale shipments also improved. But some operations at some refiners remained shut down for maintenance, which could exert a sizable drag on total GDP growth in May. The trade deficit is seen narrowing to -C$2.3 bln in June from -C$2.8 bln in May. The industrial product price index is seen slipping 0.3% in June (m/m, nsa) after the 1.0% surge in May. The Markit manufacturing PMI for July may show some slippage in activity after climbing 0.9 points to a record high of 57.1 in June, with strength in new orders.

    Europe: This week’s data releases won’t have an immediate impact on the rate outlook as there will be another set of data before the next policy meeting. Still, with the next round of confidence data and preliminary July inflation numbers ahead, the calendar will be important for the medium term outlook. On the whole data expected to confirm the central bank’s central scenario of robust, but slowing growth accompanied by a gradual rise in underlying inflation.

    The preliminary reading for Eurozone Q2 GDP (Tuesday) headlines this week and a marginal acceleration is expected in the quarterly growth rate to 0.5% q/q from 0.4%. The already released French number came in lower than expected and saw an unchanged quarterly rate of 0.2%, but this was partly due to the impact of strike action last quarter. Even if the quarterly growth rate comes in a tad below expectations, Draghi already acknowledged that some of the weakness in the Q1 had spilled over into the second, so modest Q2 growth is already part of ECB’s central scenario.

    The ESI Economic Confidence reading (Monday) is expected to dip to 112.1 from 112.3 in the previous month, with the renewed decline in confidence tying in with slightly weaker PMI and IFO readings. Indeed, the Manufacturing PMI (Wednesday) is expected to be confirmed at 55.1, in line with the preliminary number, but the Services PMI (Friday) is expected at 54.4, which should leave the composite reading at 54.3, unchanged from the preliminary reading and down from 54.9 in June. Confidence is starting to erode, even as data still points to ongoing robust growth. But the survey also reported that price pressures remain elevated. Results in line with the preliminary inflation readings are expected to leave the German HICP print (Monday) unchanged at 2.1%, the French reading (Tuesday) at 2.3% and the Eurozone reading (Tuesday) unchanged at 2.0%. This is already in line with ECB’s upper limit for price stability. Yet, with core inflation still much lower, the elevated headline reading is not sufficient to force Draghi to bring forward the timing for the first rate hike. ECB is getting more confident, though, that underlying inflation is slowly moving higher, especially with improvements in labor markets underpinning wage growth. A further decline in German jobless number (Tuesday) by -4K is anticipated, which would leave the July seasonally adjusted jobless rate unchanged at 5.2%). Eurozone June unemployment meanwhile is also seen unchanged at 8.4%.

    UK: Top of the agenda is the August BoE MPC meeting (announced Thursday), which will come with the publication of the central bank’s latest quarterly inflation report. BoE is anticipated to hike the repo rate by 0.25 bp, which would take it to 0.75%. This would be the 3rd increase within a gradual tightening cycle, and the vote at the 3-member Committee is seen to be 7 to 2. At the same time, BoE should leave the QE total at GBP 435 bln for government bond purchases and GBP 10 bln for corporate bond purchases.

    The data calendar this week is highlighted by monthly BoE Lending data (Monday), Consumer Confidence (Tuesday), and the July PMI surveys (due from Wednesday through to Friday). Of these, Gfk Consumer Confidence for July to hold at -9, the same as in June, while the Manufacturing PMI expected (Wednesday) at 54.0 in the headline after 54.4 in June, and the Services PMI (Friday) at 54.7 after 55.1 in the month prior.

    Japan: There will be a lot of interest in the BoJ meeting (Monday, Tuesday) given recent news reports of a policy tweak to its yield curve management (YCC) strategy. Worries that such a move could be an early warning of a shift away from uber-accommodation saw JGB yield spike higher, which forced BoJ to step in and offer to buy an unlimited amount of paper. BoJ is not expected to suggest a more hawkish stance is on the way. As for data, June Unemployment (Tuesday) is expected steady at 2.2%, with the job offers to seekers ratio unchanged at 1.60. Preliminary June Industrial Production (Tuesday) should fall 1.0% m/m from the previous -0.2% reading. July Consumer Confidence (Tuesday) is forecast little changed at 43.5 from 43.6. Also, June housing starts and construction spending (Tuesday) with the former seen contracting at a 2.0% y/y rate, from 1.3% previously. The final July Manufacturing PMI (Wednesday) is penciled in falling to 52.0 from 53.0. It was 2.1 a year ago. July auto sales are also due Wednesday.

    Australia: The Building approvals (Tuesday) are expected to rise 1.0% in June after the 3.2% drop in May. The Trade Balance (Thursday) is seen improving to A$1.1 bln in June from A$0.8 bln in May. Retail Sales (Friday) are projected to grow 0.4% in June, matching the 0.4% growth pace (m/m, sa) in May. RBA is uncharacteristically silent until the August 7 meeting.

    New Zealand: The Employment report (Wednesday) is expected to show a 0.7% gain in Q2 (q/q, sa) after the 0.6% improvement in Q1. A 4.4% unemployment rate is anticipated, which would match the jobless rate from Q1.
