    AUDJPY Continues as Risk Bellwether.



    AUDJPY, H1

    US equity markets fell another 1.75% yesterday after Tuesday’s 2% fall as worries about a second wave of the coronavirus persist and Fed Chair Powell offered a pragmatic assessment of the economic consequences and continued his scepticism towards a negative interest rate policy. Today this has followed through with Asian and European stock markets weaker; the Nikkei225 (JPY225) closed down 1.74% earlier at 19,914. In Europe stock markets are also selling off, with the GER30 (DAX) down -1.7% and the FTSE 100 (UK100) down -2.1%. Bond markets meanwhile have extended yesterday’s gains, although both Bunds and Gilts are underperforming versus Treasuries, as Eurozone spreads narrow again with Greek bonds outperforming this morning, likely also thanks to the ECB’s bond buying program, which is likely to be extended as central banks remain on high alert and focused on the devastating impact of lockdown measures on economies. 10-year yields are down -0.4 bp in Germany and the UK, while Treasury yields have dropped -3.4 bp to 0.619%.



    In the FX markets the USD and YEN are in demand with pressure on GBP, EUR and AUD with EURUSD edging out a two-day low at 1.0788, driven by dollar firmness amid a bout of risk-off positioning in global markets. The pair is trading to the south of the halfway mark of the volatile range that was seen during the height of the global market panic in March, which was marked by 1.0637 on the downside and 1.1494 on the upside. Expectations are for EURUSD to lack sustained directional bias for now, though the somewhat frayed politics of the eurozone tips the balance toward downside risk. There is little divergence in central bank policy currently, with both the ECB and the Fed pursuing aggressive easing policies, and both Europe and the US facing significant economic headwinds from virus-containing lockdown measures. Europe and the US are now in the early stages of economic reopening strategies, which is being accompanied by concerns that this might spark a second wave of coronavirus infections.

    The biggest mover, so far today, remains the risk sensitive AUDJPY, currently down some 0.36% and recovering from a 0.50% decline earlier. The pair remain rangebound on the Daily time-frame from mid April between the 61.8 Fibonacci level and psychological 70.00 and the 50.0 Fibonacci level at 68.00. The 50-day moving average resides at 68.80, the RSI is neutral at 51 and MACD is also neutral although the signal line remains over the 0 line from April 24. The MFI oscillator is declining out of the overbought zone from May 1.

    Mixed outlook for Metals – Base VS Precious.



    The Commodity market is mixed, with precious metals finding a near-term lift following the announcement of a double QE program from RBNZ, the comments from Fed Chair Powell on Wednesday and the US Jobless claim release this week. Gold spiked today to its April 23 high at the $1,738 level on safe haven demand, but interestingly according to RBC the poor jobs data yesterday has translated to a boost for Gold. According to RBC comments to Bloomberg, the jobless claims, from the human perspective, translated to more stimulus in the near future and to continued lower interest rates , and things that are ‘very friendly for gold’.

    The concerns for more stimulus measures to cushion the fall out of the coronavirus outbreak were also raised after the mixed Chinese data, with production rebounding while retail sales remain under pressure. Chinese production figures are normally considered a bellwether data release, both for the Asia-Pacific region and the globe, though the scope for an enduring recovery in activity looks to be limited, with many world economies remaining in a state of semi-lockdown. Hence the uneven recovery picture from China signalled a still bumpy road ahead, especially as new virus hotspots seem to be emerging.



    Copper

    Other than Gold, Copper prices advanced today on data showing a solid recovery in top consumer China and hopes of more stimulus measures in the global economy. Copper retested the week’s high at 2.3731 (above 50% retracement level on downleg from 2.4270). However from the technical and fundamental perspective , Copper in contrast with Gold faces a limited boost. The 50% retracement level could provide a reversal level for the asset, while from the fundamental perspective, the large copper inventory inflows into LME warehouses and reports of the restarting of mining operations in Peru are adding to the overall bearish sentiment for the asset. As ING stated, LME warehouses yesterday saw copper inflows of around 55.7kt. These large inflows made up for the withdrawals that the market had been seeing since mid-April, and pushed inventories to YTD highs of 282.7kt.



    However, for all commodities and energy assets, demand hits and supply hits are what matters the most .Hence for as long as the economy doesn’t get back to pre-virus levels and as long as smelters and refiners do not resume full operations in China, raw materials are expected to remain in tight supply.

    Other precious metals including platinum and palladium are also suffering from weak industrial demand amid lockdowns around the world. Price movements for all three have been negative year to date. Palladium prices have fallen around 35% from the recent highs seen in February, given the pressure that the global auto industry is under at the moment – a key source of demand for palladium.



    Therefore, beyond this near-term lift, we assume that the demand-hit from the coronavirus will remain bigger than the supply hit into mid-year, leaving a downward impact on net for global commodity prices. A firm Dollar provides an additional headwind.

    Positive Factors Pushing USOil above $30.



    USOil, H4

    Oil prices have risen continuously since the big price drop in late April, as the May Futures contracts expired and the concerns over storage capacity peaked. Also demand was lost because of the Covid-19 outbreak and the lockdowns that followed and the trade war between the major oil producing countries.

    However, the relaxation of lockdown measures from early May can be considered as the starting point for the return of oil consumption of large countries like China, which yesterday reported demand is now back to normal levels at 13 million barrels per day. The beginning of May also coincided with the major oil-producing countries implementing the reduction of agreed production estimates. This has enabled USOil prices to push above 30 US Dollars per barrel this week.

    Another good thing that will benefit the price of oil at this time is the current weakening of the US Dollar.

    From a technical standpoint, H4 now sees bullish pennant patterns that tend to keep oil prices going up. The first resistance is at 33.00, which, if able to break through, is likely to continue to Fibonacci 161.8 at 34.15, which is in line with the MACD that is now in the positive territory. And the price is still running within the uptrend channel.

    However, resilience to the second wave of the Covid-19 outbreak remains a risk that the market must keep an eye on, after China’s Jilin city was locked down due to an outbreak of 34 new virus cases.

    Market Update | 21 May.



    Wall Street had closed higher yesterday, but risk appetite started to wane in quiet trade during the course of the Asian session. The US Senate passed a bill that could bar some Chinese companies from listing on US exchanges and fresh criticism from U.S. President Trump of China’s leadership added to concerns that we are heading for a new trade war. The minutes of the last Fed meeting also highlighted the risk to not just economic growth, but also financial stability.

    More precisely, the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act requires that Chinese companies show that they are not controlled by a foreign government, reports MarketWatch. Moreover, the firms would have to produce an audit that conforms to the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.

    FOMC minutes had a few points of interest, but none that suggested any changes to the policy stance any time in the foreseeable futures. The minutes of course headlined the economic and human hardships, and worried about potential risks to financial stability. There was the usual run-down on what’s been done in terms of the rate cut and QE. There were a few interesting points of discussion, though the ideas mostly came from the minority on the Committee. The minutes reiterated that while the current stance was seen as “appropriate,” the Committee could “clarify” its forward guidance (which it didn’t really give because of the unprecedented uncertainties). Some participants though they could make guidance more explicit by either adopting an “outcome-based” approach that specified macro outcomes including a certain level of unemployment or and inflation rate. A “date-based” approach could also be used considered and would specify that the target range could be raised after a certain time had elapsed. Several also thought the Fed might also have to further clarify its asset purchase plans, as without which there could be increased uncertainty over time. An ongoing program of Treasury purchases could also be used to “keep long term rates low” — that boarders on yield curve control. And a few suggested the balance sheet could be used to to cap shorter and medium term yields. And of interest, the Open Market Desk surveys showed respondents “attached almost no probability to the FOMC implementing negative policy rates.” Some survey respondents indicated that they expected modifications to the Committee’s forward guidance, but not at the current meeting.

    Against that background Wall Street had come off its best levels after FOMC and White house reports, though the major indexes are holding gains of better than 1%. Topix and Nikkei are down -0.07% and up 0.06% respectively, the Hang Seng is down -0.05% and the CSI 300 unchanged on the day, while the ASX is down -0.03%.



    In FX markets , the Dollar has picked up safe haven demand as stock markets flagged in the Asia-Pacific region, and with S&P 500 futures correcting most of the gains seen during Wednesday’s regular session on Wall Street. The narrow trade-weighted USD index rebounded to a high at 99.43, up from the 17-day low seen yesterday at 99.01.



    The biggest mover out of the main currencies has been AUDUSD, which dropped by nearly 0.5% in printing a low at 0.6549, correcting from yesterday’s 10-week high at 0.6618. Another ratchet higher in the U.S. attacks on China catalysed a risk-off mood in markets, with the White House publishing a 20-page dossier of complaint on China, accusing Beijing of predatory economic policies, military build-up, disinformation, human rights violations. A senior administration official was reported a saying that this does not signal a shift in US policy, and while some may downplay it as part of President Trump’s election strategy, it is clear that the US, and other Western nations, have been growing uneasy about China’s power on the world stage, and are feeling a need to reassert themselves.

    Given the potential and realized impact on trade, this is fostering a re-emergence of nervousness in markets. In other news, RBA Governor Lowe warned that without a Covid-19 medical breakthrough the economic recovery will be slow. The New Zealand government said it will allow bars to reopen, and that it is considering a four-day work week. On the data front, preliminary PMIs reported from Australia and Japan showed predictably sharp contractions for manufacturing along with and a deeply contracted but slightly improved reading for services. Export data from South Korea and Japan were also weak. New Zealand credit card spending for April fell 41.3% m/m.

    EURUSD – Rejection, Retrace, Sell-Off.



    EURUSD, H1

    EURUSD has drifted down to a fresh four-day low at 1.0886, driven lower by a broad haven-bid for Dollars as Hong Kong re-emerges as a flash point in US-China, and West-China, relations. The narrow trade-weighted USDIndex (DXY) rose to a three-day high at 99.62, extending the rebound from the 18-day low seen on Wednesday at 99.01. EURUSD continues to trade in a broad consolidation range near the halfway mark of the volatile range that was seen during the height of the global market panic in March, which was marked by 1.0637 on the downside and 1.1494 on the upside. Expectations are for the pair to lack sustained directional bias for now, though political tensions among Eurozone members, coupled with the dollar’s role as a haven, suggest the risks are to the downside, as demonstrated in the H1 chart. Below we can see that there was a rejection of 1.1000 yesterday (1) and a retrace of the initial fall to the 50-hour moving average (2), followed by the sell-off during the Asian and European sessions today (3).

    There is little divergence in central bank policy currently, with both the ECB and the Fed pursuing aggressively accommodative policy, with both Europe and the US facing significant economic headwinds from virus-containing lockdown measures. Both are amid the early stages of reopening from lockdowns.
