    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 4th October 2017.




    FX News Today

    European Outlook: Asian stock markets are mixed, as USD weakens and Yen strength saw the Nikkei wiping out gains. The ASX also was under pressure as the dip in oil prices weighed on energy producers, while Chinese stocks in Hong Kong touched a 2-year high and the Hang Seng outperformed. US100 and U.S. stock futures are in the red, suggesting a weak start in Europe, after modest gains yesterday. Germany’s GER30 re-opens after yesterday’s holiday as Spain’s constitutional crisis continues and casts a shadow over the Eurozone. The data calendar includes the final reading of Eurozone services PMIs, as well as the U.K. services PMI and Eurozone retail sales. Germany sells 10-year Bunds.

    FX Update: The dollar remained on the ebb, giving back some of the gains posted recently. The narrow trade-weighted USD index is showing a modest 0.2% loss as the London interbank opens, at 93.23, having extended the decline from yesterday’s six-week peak at 93.77. USDJPY ebbed under 112.50 after recent gains stalled above 113.00, where decent export offers were encountered. The pair left a high at 113.19 yesterday, which is 6 pips short of the near three-month high printed last week. The pair had rallied strongly from the early September low at 107.31, though momentum indicators have been turning lower over the last couple of weeks, despite spot making new highs — a divergence that often portends a trend change. EURUSD logged a two-session high at 1.1780, up from yesterday’s two-and-a-half-month low at 1.1696.

    Canada: BoC’s Leduc did not directly address policy in his prepared remarks yesterday on the declining dynamism of Canada’s economy. Data show a “surprising and sustained decline in the entry rate of new firms since the early 1980s” he observed. He said “The main concern about the loss of dynamism is that it will lead to less innovation and diminishing long term growth.” As for Canada’s growth, he said it “has been strong, exceeding that of all other G7 countries.” He does find it “encouraging that the Canadian economy is still flexible enough to absorb a major shock” despite the decline in dynamism. He repeated Poloz’s observation that productivity has “increased significantly” since the middle of last year. There is nothing new here on policy or the economy, with the Lane/Poloz duo last month saying all that needed to be said for now. To review, they revealed a pivot to caution following back to back rate hikes in July and September as the economy surged in the first half of this year. Leduc said the growth rate should decline over next few quarters, but remain above potential. That is in-line with the July outlook and Poloz’s comments last month.

    USDCAD turned a bit lower as Canadian yields edged up following BoC Leduc’s speech. The pairing had been idling on either side of 1.2510 since the open, before falling back to intra day lows of 1.2482. With oil prices off the boil this week, and narrowed prospects for a near term BoC rate hike, USDCAD upside appears to be the easier path.

    Main Macro Events Today

    EU and German Markit PMI – The Services EU reading is seen at 55.6, and should see the composite confirmed at 56.7, while German Service PMI and Composite anticipated unchanged at 55.6 and 57.8 respectively. The UK Service is seen unchanged as well at 53.2.

    US ADP and ISM Non-Manuf. PMI – The September ADP should climb 125k following Augusts 237k surge. There should be little hurricane effect here given the way the data is tabulated. The services ISM is seen edging up to 55.5 after rising 1.4 points to 55.3 previously.

    ECB – President Draghi is due to speak at the Inauguration of the ECB Visito Center in Frankfurt.

    Fed’s Yellen- The market anxiously awaits Yellen’s comments today,which might be in vain, since she doesn’t take the podium until 15:15 ET, and then it’s merely to deliver opening remarks at a community banking event. That’s not a venue nor a topic for policy insights. Plus, there will be no Q&A. Nothing has changed since the September 19, 20 FOMC to alter the stance regarding the dot plot and the indication of one more hike this year, a stance which Yellen has tacitly approved. In terms of the Fed chair position, should Yellen not be reappointed, it seems to be a battle between Warsh and Powell, with the former’s threat to “shake up” the Fed a worry.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 5th October 2017.




    FX News Today

    European Outlook: Another mixed session in Asia, where the Hang Seng continued to outperformed as China remained closed for holidays. ASX and Nikkei meanwhile moved sideways. U.K. and U.S. stock futures are also little changed. No clear direction then for European markets, which will also have little to digest on the data front today. ECB speakers and the minutes of the last ECB meeting meanwhile are likely to confirm that the central bank is heading for a reduction in asset purchase volumes, but with the doves still shying away from a firm commitment to an end date for QE. Spain remains in focus as Madrid and Barcelona remain on confrontation course in a dangerous game of chicken.

    FX Update: The Aussie came under pressure following the biggest contraction in Australian retailing sales in four years. The currency is showing a 0.5% decline on the day as the London interbank enters the fray, with AUD-USD logging a two-day low at 0.7819. The August report for Australian retail trade saw turnover unexpectedly contracting by 0.6% m/m, contrary to expectations for 0.3% m/m growth. Elsewhere, narrow ranges have prevailed. USD-JPY has plied a sideways path near 111.75, which is about the halfway mark of the range of the last week. EUR-USD has ebbed modestly lower, to the 1.1750 area and nearing yesterday’s low at 1.1746. The lack of direction reflects a general lack of fresh leads. Fed chair Yellen spoke yesterday after the London close, but she steered clear of policy and economic issues.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 6th October 2017.




    FX News Today

    European Outlook: European stock markets moved broadly higher as U.S. factory orders boosted confidence in the global growth outlook. Chinese stocks in Hong Kong tested 2-year highs. Banks were underpinned as U.S. yields moved higher and the dollar strengthened. FTSE 100 futures are also up and the DAX is still trying to break the 13000 mark, as the focus turns to U.S. jobs data. In the Europe investors continue to watch the situation in Catalonia carefully. Spanish markets bounced back yesterday as the central government continues to take a hard line on Barcelona’s secession plans, while leaders in Catalonia seem to the pushing for talks. Indeed, for a long term solution both sides must return to the negotiating table.

    FX Update: The dollar has been bid up again, after dipping mid week, gaining concomitantly with Treasury yields following a set of strong data out of the U.S. yesterday, along with relatively hawkish Fedspeack and with all three of the main U.S. equity indices setting record closing highs for a fourth straight session. USDJPY edged out a three-session high just above 113.00 and EURUSD clawed out a new seven-week low at 1.1686. USDCAD logged five-week highs, while Cable plumbed a one-month low. AUDUSD clocked a three-month low, at 0.7743, extending the down trend that’s been developing since the pair failed to sustain gains above 0.8000 between late July and September. Markets are now looking to the September employment report, up later today, savvy to temporary distortions caused by the hurricanes. A relatively subdued 120k headline increase is expected. There is also another barrage of Fed speakers due, which will almost certainly, on net, affirm that a rate hike is in the works for the December FOMC.

    Canadian Unemployment Rate – Expectations – 0.1% down from last month 6.2%

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 9th October 2017.




    FX News Today

    The September U.S. jobs report lived up to its “distorted” billing. But, while many of the stats showed outsized gains (in terms of earnings), or losses (in terms of jobs), they could be generally easily rationalized due to the hurricanes. The net result left intact the view that the FOMC will remain on its gradual course of normalization near-term. After the holiday break for the U.S., Canada, and Japan on Monday, markets will be back at full strength with China returning from a week long absence with PMIs on tap. Even before then, there is a risk of a constitutional showdown in Spain over the Catalonia independence vote and heavy-handed response by Madrid, which may yet have Brexit-like complications for the wary EU itself.

    United States: The U.S. economic calendar will get off to a slow start after the Columbus/Indigenous Peoples Day holiday break by the markets Monday, focused mainly on more questionable September data including potentially hurricane-impacted inflation and retail sales towards the end of the week.After NFIB small business optimism (Tuesday), MBA mortgage stats are due (Wednesday), along with JOLTS job openings and the FOMC minutes. Accordingly, September PPI is forecast to rise in August (Thursday). Also due then is recently choppy initial jobless claims, seen dropping another 22k to 238k as storm anomalies wash out of the data. Headline CPI is forecast to surge 0.6% in September from 0.4% due to the surge in petroleum prices, in August (Friday).

    Canada: A holiday-truncated week is thick with housing data (Monday is Thanksgiving Day). The week begins with September housing starts (Tuesday), expected to dip to 220.0k from the 223.2k in August. Housing permits (Tuesday) are seen slipping 1.0% m/m after the 3.5% drop in July. The August new home price index is due Thursday. The Teranet/National Bank housing price index for September is also due Thursday. There is nothing schedule from the Bank of Canada this week.

    Europe: This week’s data releases are unlikely to add much to the discussion as August production numbers are rather backward looking and final inflation numbers are not expected to bring decisive revisions. Developments in Spain, however, will be watched carefully. At the time of writing there was no sign of a breakthrough in the standoff between Madrid and Barcelona. EU officials are watching the situation nervously with a potential showdown on Monday. Wary of setting any type of precedent, they have made clear that an independent Catalonia would no longer be part of the EU, but clearly would prefer the conflict to be resolved without a secession at a time when Brexit talks loom. The data week starts with German August industrial production (Monday). The French production and overall Eurozone IP will be on Thursday. German trade data for August is also due and expected to show another hefty surplus, although the current recovery is more than previously driven by consumption and domestic demand. The main bulk of data releases centres on final September inflation readings, which are expected to confirm German HICP (Friday) at 1.8% y/y, the Spanish (Wednesday) reading at 1.9% y/y, the French (Thursday) at 1.1% y/y, and finally the Italian rate (Friday) at 1.1% y/y. This should leave overall Eurozone HICP inflation, due to the following week on course to be confirmed at 1.5% y/y, well below the ECB’s 2% upper limit for price stability, but also highlighting that the convergence of inflation rates that officials had been hoping would be one of the results of monetary union, hasn’t really happened.

    UK: Sterling last week saw its biggest weekly decline, of 2.5% versus the dollar, since August 2016, a time when markets were still reeling from the shock of the vote to leave the EU. Like then, the pound is in a tailspin over political and Brexit uncertainties. The calendar this week has the BRC retail sales report for September (Tuesday), industrial production and trade figures for August (also Tuesday), and the RICS house price balance (Thursday). The BRC report will be monitored to see if the consumer sector continues to hold up, buoyed by near record levels of employment and low borrowing rates, but challenged by an erosion in spending power with inflation exceeding pay increases. As for production, growth in industrial output is expected, which would be the same as in July.

    New Zealand: New Zealand’s calendar is thin this week. QV new home prices for September are due Tuesday. The Reserve Bank of New Zealand next meets on November 9. They held rates steady at 1.75% last week, matching expectations. The statement by Acting Governor Spencer was consistent with no change in rates for an extended period.

    Japan: The docket kicks off Tuesday after Monday’s holiday with the August current account, where the surplus is expected to narrow to JPY 2,200 bln from 2,320 bln. August machine orders is on Wednesday. The August tertiary industry index (Thursday) should rise 0.1% from the same previously. September PPI (Friday) is seen accelerating slightly to 3.1% y/y from 2.9% in August. Strength in oil prices may be offset by the firmer yen.

    China: Loan growth and new yuan loans for September (Tuesday) should show new loans rising to CNY 1,300 bln from 1,090 bln previously. The September trade report (Friday) is forecast to show the surplus narrowing to $39.0 bln from $41.9 bln. Exports likely remained solid, even to the U.S. despite some trade tensions.

    Australia: The Reserve Bank of Australia’s Financial Stability Review (Friday) headlines a thin week of data and events. RBA Deputy Governor Debelle speaks (Tuesday) at the FX Global code of conduct in Hong Kong. August housing investment (Thursday) is expected to gain 2.0% after the 2.9% rise in July.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 10th October 2017.




    FX News Today

    European Outlook: Asian stock markets were mixed, long yields mostly higher. Japanese shares were underpinned by automakers after a three day weekend, the Hang Seng also moved higher, but the post-holiday rally in mainland China fizzled out and the ASX was under pressure as the currency strengthened. U.S. and U.K. stock futures are higher, but for the Eurozone, Spain will be a key focus as Catalan President Puigdemont is set to address lawmakers in Barcelona at 6 pm to discuss the outcome of the referendum, which delivered a resounding yes, but with a very low participation rate. The central government in Madrid meanwhile has pledged to maintain the unity of Spain and there is no support for Barcelona from the EU. Political events could well overshadow the local calendar, which includes industrial production data out of the U.K., France and Italy and finally U.K. trade numbers.

    FX Update: The dollar traded mostly softer yesterday in holiday thinned markets, with holidays affect major centres in both North America and Asia. The narrow trade-weighted USD index fell to a two-session low at 93.48, while EURUSD firmed to a two-session high of 1.1756. The dollar also traded at two-session lows versus sterling and the Australian dollar, while USDCAD gave back a chunk of the gains the pair saw on Friday following the U.S. and Canadian employment reports. USDJPY logged a three-session low at 112.33 in Asia before recouping above 112.50, remaining comfortably off from Friday’s three-month high at 113.44. New data and developments were thin on the ground, though Spanish markets priced out Catalan secession risks, with the movement’s leaders stalling amid not unjust concerns about economic mayhem. Geopolitical concerns remain amid reports that North Korea is planning another missile launch, and an escalating diplomatic spat between the U.S. and Turkey.

    Main Macro Events Today

    UK Manufacturing Production – Expectations – Down to 0.3% from 0.5% on July.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 11th October 2017.




    FX News Today

    European Outlook: Asian stock markets moved higher overnight and the Nikkei is set for the highest close since December 1996. Stronger than expected machinery orders for August underpinned an overall improvement in growth optimism, after the upbeat IMF outlook yesterday. Hang Send and CSI 300 are also posting gains and the ASX 200 outperformed as oil prices climbed above USD 51 per barrel. U.K. stock futures are also up as Sterling retreats. In the Eurozone the fact that the showdown between Madrid and Barcelona has been avoided will help to underpin sentiment. European stocks are set to extend gains and the GER30 may finally break the 1300 mark, but Bunds are likely to underperform as risk appetite returns and intra-Eurozone safe haven flows are being priced out. The local calendar is relatively quiet, with only the final reading of Spanish inflation data for September. Investors will also look ahead to the FOMC minutes as well as plenty of central bank speakers at the IMF and World Bank meetings in Washington.

    Catalan’s President backs down – Bund futures jump – briefly. Puidgemont rather than unilaterally declaring independence, proposed to suspend the result of the referendum and called for weeks of dialogue. Spain’s central administration had braced itself for a direct conflict, so this is at least a partial victory as Puidgemont seemed to back down first in this game of chicken. Still, with Catalonia suspending the result, rather than fully ignoring it Rajoy will likely still see this as blackmail and it remains to be seen whether he will now take a softer stance or continue to demand a full capitulation from the independent region. EURUSD dipped to 1.1796 from 1.1810 as the Catalonian leader said the current relationship with Spain is unsustainable. From there, the euro jumped to intra day highs of 1.1825 as Puigdemont said he would suspend a declaration of independence in order to pursue dialogue with Madrid.

    Main Macro Events Today

    FOMC Minutes – FOMC minutes to the September 19-20 policy meeting will provide some further details to the Fed’s recent thinking, but shouldn’t lead to any major revelations.After the policy statement, the economic projections, and Yellen’s press conference last month, as well as recent Fedspeak and data, the markets have all they need to in order to fine tune the outlook including pricing in a December rate hike.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 12th October 2017.




    FX News Today

    European Outlook: Asian stock markets are broadly higher, following on from gains on Wall Street yesterday, but UK100 and U.S. futures are heading south. Mixed signals then for European markets. The FOMC minutes confirmed that the Fed is on track to hike rates again at the December meeting, the BoE remains headed for a rate hike and the ECB is pretty much set to reduce asset purchases from early next year even if officials remain split on the size of the reduction and whether there should already be a signal that this is the beginning of the end for QE. Brexit talks remain in focus ahead of the crucial EU summit where officials will decide whether sufficient progress has been made for trade talks to begin this year. Meanwhile Spain’s hard line stance on Catalonia and signs that the front in Barcelona is cracking has helped peripheral bond yields to drop sharply yesterday and it remains to be seen whether the gains in bonds can be held. With the data calendar relatively quiet again, politics and central bank speeches will remain in focus. The Eurozone has industrial production for August and there are inflation numbers out of France and Sweden.

    FOMC minutes showed “many” saw another rate hike was warranted, while a smaller number (probably Kashkari, Evans, and Kaplan) thought action could wait. Several thought that further tightening should hinge on incoming data, though it was acknowledged that Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria would impact economic activity. There was active debate over inflation and wages. While many saw some of the softening in inflation as due to idiosyncratic factors, other factors could be at work too and there was concern that such influences could be more persistent. Also, “several expressed concern that the persistence of low rates of inflation might imply that the underlying trend was running below 2%.”

    Main Macro Events Today

    EU Industial Production – Expectations – 0.5% m/m from 0.1% seen in August.

    US Jobless Claims & PPI – Expectations – September PPI is forecast to rise 0.4% vs 0.2% in August, while rising 0.2% core and 2.1% core y/y. Also due then is recently choppy initial jobless claims, seen dropping another 22k to 238k as storm anomalies wash out of the data.

    ECB speeches – ECB President Draghi and ECB’s Praet speak in Washington and New York respectively.

    FOMC Speeches – Governor Powell addresses “Prospects for Emerging Market Economies in a Normalizing Global Economy” from 10:30 ET and Governor Brainard takes part in a monetary policy panel at the Peterson Institute from 10:30 ET.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 13th October 2017.




    FX News Today

    European Outlook: Topix and Nikkei rallied and are targeting fresh highs, boosted by technology companies and retailers as markets start to focus on earnings. Elsewhere gains were more mooted and Hang Seng and CSI 300 swung between gains and losses. U.S. stock futures are higher, UK100 futures slightly down, but for the Eurozone a Bloomberg report that the ECB is considering halving asset purchases next year, but with a longer than anticipated 9 months extension could help the GER30 to finally crack the 13000 mark and keep Bunds underpinned. Brexit risks meanwhile are weighing on U.K. markets as hopes of early trade talks were dashed by Barnier yesterday, although there is still the hope of a transition period, which would at least give more time for talks.

    FX Updates: EURUSD opened in N.Y. at 1.1860 highs, and spent much of the remainder of the session slowly grinding lower, basing at 1.1827 after the London close. The pairing traded under both its 50- and 20day moving averages, before reclaiming the levels into the close. Dovish fallout from Wednesday’s FOMC minutes continued to provide some support, though Friday’s U.S. CPI report may end up being a weight on the euro should data come in warm, as expected. Talk of a no-deal exit from the EU has been increasing, with five rounds of negotiation having reached “deadlock,” according to the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, Barniar. He also said that the EU would agree to a two-year transitory period, to buy more time after actual Brexit occurs in March 2019. Cable surged to $1.3290 after EU’s Barnier’s comments.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 16th October 2017.




    FX News Today

    Global economic activity has surprised to the upside this year, most recently manifest in the upward revisions from the IMF. And while there are a number of potential geopolitical headwinds that could slow, if not derail the momentum, recent economic reports from the U.S. suggest a measurable boost from Keynesian style pump-priming as the South and California recover from the hurricanes and fires that devastated the major regions. Meanwhile, the lack of inflationary pressures continues to baffle central bankers, keeping them on patient footing with respect to removing accommodation. Brexit is a major issue for the UK, while Europe is wrestling with the Spain-Catalonia constitutional crisis. The weekend’s Austrian elections may have some ripple effects and give populists and anti-EU forces fresh impetus. On Wednesday, the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party convenes. President Xi is widely expected to be re-elected and is expected to lay out another broad plan for growth. President Trump’s decision to decertify the Iran nuclear deal will add to global concerns, along with the ongoing threats from North Korea.

    United States: The Empire State index for October leads off (Monday), expected to decline to 21.0 after the 0.8 point slide to 24.4 in September. September industrial production (Tuesday) is forecast bouncing 0.4% after dropping 0.9% previously. Trade prices for September (Tuesday) should show a 0.8% climb in import prices, helped by energy, and a 0.5% gain in export prices. Housing starts for September (Wednesday) are expected to rise to a 1.200 mln pace following the 0.8% decline to 1.180 mln in August and the 2.2% drop in July to 1.190 mln. The October Philly Fed index (Thursday) is also expected to decline and September existing home sales (Friday) should inch up.

    Canada: In Canada, the Business Outlook Survey (Monday) headlines the data docket, with a solidly expansionary outlook, further unwinding of spare capacity and still well contained inflation expectations expected. August manufacturing (Wednesday) is expected to improve 0.5% after the 2.6% tumble in July. August retail sales (Friday) are seen rising 0.5% after the 0.4% improvement in July. CPI (Friday) is expected to rise 0.2% m/m in September after the 0.1% gain in August. All of the reports this week have the potential to alter the policy outlook, but at this point we view the outcome for October’s announcement as fairly well settled. BoC’s Wilkins appears in a panel discussion (Tuesday), with the appearance having minimal risk of containing anything policy relevant.

    Europe: Politics will continue to top the agenda. EU leaders will meet Thursday/Friday to talk Brexit. Meanwhile Spain’s constitutional crisis is not over yet. Puigdemont seemed to back down last week, but Rajoy’s ultimatum for a clarification on whether the Catalan leader actually unilaterally declared independence or not at his address to regional lawmakers runs out on October 16 and Madrid also demanded that Catalonia’s leader should respect Spain’s constitution and effectively end the move for independence by October 19.With that in mind the outcome of Austria’s election on October 15 could also have ripple effects and give populists and anti-EU forces fresh impetus. Latest opinion polls suggest that the conservative OeVP will be the strongest party, but the right wing FPOe is a close second. Clearly a good result for the FPOe would be cheered by the Front National in France and the AfP in Germany. In Germany itself the regional elections in Lower Saxony over the weekend will also be watched closely and the result of Merkel’s CDU could well impact support for the Chancellor within her own party as crucial coalition talks are about to start in earnest.

    Against that background the data calendar looks pretty tame and is unlikely to decisively impact the discussion on policy recalibration that is taking place at the ECB ahead of the next meeting at the end of the month. The final reading of Eurozone September HICP is unlikely to bring a major surprise and is expected to confirm the preliminary number of 1.5% y/y. Still too low for the central bank, especially as Draghi is not happy yet with underlying inflation and especially wage growth.

    UK:The pound, after posting its biggest weekly loss since August 2016 in the week prior, last week managed to rebound by over 1.5% versus the dollar and by about 1% versus both the euro and yen. The calendar this week is highlighted by inflation data for September (Tuesday) which expected at new cycle high of 3.0% y/y in headline CPI, and a core CPI reading of 2.8% y/y, after 2.7% in the month previous. Such outcomes would be comfortably in the range of BoE projections, and leave the central bank on course of what is now a widely expected 25 bp rate hike at the November policy meeting. Assuming sterling continues to hold up reasonably well, y/y CPI readings should come off the boil in upcoming months as the impact of the currency’s sharp decline following the Brexit vote in July 2019 falls out of the equation. Monthly labor data (Wednesday) should see the unemployment rate remain unchanged at 4.3%, and show average household earnings continue to lag inflation, with incomes expected to rise by 2.1% y/y in the three months to August. September retail sales (Thursday) is expected to show a 0.1% m/m contraction.

    New Zealand: New Zealand’s calendar has Q3 CPI, expected to expand 0.4% (q/q, sa) after the flat reading in Q2. CPI is expected to accelerate to a 1.8% y/y pace from the 1.7% growth rate in Q2. The Reserve Bank of New Zealand next meets on November 9. They held rates steady at 1.75% in September, matching expectations. The statement by Acting Governor Spencer was consistent with no change in rates for an extended period.

    Japan: Monday brings revised August industrial production, which is expected to remain unchanged at 2.1% y/y. Skipping to Thursday, the September trade report should reveal a surplus of JPY 400.0 bln, versus the 112.6 bln deficit in August. The September all-industry index (Thursday) is expected to rise 0.1% versus the 0.1% decline previously.

    China: September industrial production(Thursday) is estimated at 6.3% y/y from 6.0%, while September retail sales are penciled in at an unchanged 10.1% y/y. Q3 GDP (Friday) is expected at 6.9% y/y, unchanged from Q2.

    Australia: The minutes to the Reserve Bank of Australia’s October meeting are due Tuesday. RBA Assistant Governor (Economic) Ellis participates in a panel discussion (Tuesday). RBA Assistant Governor (Financial System) Bullock speaks to the Australian Shareholders Association (Thursday). Employment (Thursday) is seen rising 20.0k in September after the 54.2k gain in August. The unemployment rate is seen at 5.6%, matching the rate in August.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 17th October 2017.




    FX News Today

    European Outlook: Asian stock markets moved broadly higher, with Australia’s ASX outperforming as investors piled into miners and banks. So Australia’s hot streak continued with a more than 0.7% rise, while gains elsewhere were more muted as concerns about North Korea emerged and markets speculate about a more hawkish Fed post Yellen. North Korea warned that a nuclear war could “break out any moment”. U.S. and U.K. stock futures are narrowly mixed. May’s visit to Brussels yesterday doesn’t seem to have brought a major breakthrough while in Spain the situation is tensing up after Madrid prepares to replace Catalan security officials after the leaders of two grassroots independence groups were jailed yesterday. Amid ongoing political tensions the European calendar is heating up, with U.K. inflation data for September as well as German ZEW investor confidence and final Eurozone September HICP numbers.

    FX Updates: The dollar has continued to trade perkily. USDJPY flipped back above 112.00 as major Asian stock indices hit 10-year highs after Wall Street hit fresh record highs on Monday. The pair has a well-established tendency to correlate with notable moves in global equity markets, though persisting concerns about political disharmony in Spain and North Korea (Pyongyang threatened nuclear war could “break out at any moment”) may have been curtailing yen losses. EURUSD declined for a fourth consecutive session, this time logging a out a one-week low at 1.1756. The dollar also held firm against the Australian dollar and other dollar-bloc currencies, along with sterling and other currencies. Sterling for its part has seen little reaction thus far to news that British PM May and EU Commission President Juncker agreed at a supper meeting last night that Brexit negotiations should “accelerate over the months to come.”

    Main Macro Events Today

    UK PPI & CPI – Expectations – CPI at 3.0% y/y headline from 2.9% in August, and PPI at 1.2% in September from 1.6% m/m

    EU CPI and German ZEW – Expectations -EU CPI seen unchanged at 1.5% y/y and German ZEW to 20.0 from 17.0

    BoE Gov. Carney – Due to testify before the Treasury Select Committee, in London.

    US Industrial Production – Expectation – at 0.4% after dropping 0.9%, which should leave capacity utilization at 76.4% from 76.1%.
