    Market Update – December 20 – Pre-Christmas Surprise from BOJ.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    *The USD Index is betwixt and between amid various drivers. It closed at 104.706, inside the day’s 104.931 to 103.50 range. The advent of the holidays and year end have lightened volume measurably too, exacerbating some of the moves in the markets. Stocks are in red against Decembers’ seasonality. Treasuries fell today, especially at longer tenors, after the Bank of Japan unexpectedly lifted a cap on 10-year yields and unleashed a sell-off across global bond markets.
    *Yields: 10yr rose to 3.71% and 30-yr to 3.72%.
    *The S&P 500 has risen in 73% of December since 1928, according to Dow Jones Market Data. As of Monday’s close, the S&P 500 had fallen 6.4% in December.
    *EUR – tumbling between 1.0575-1.0650.
    *JPY – surged to 132.66 after the BOJ said it would review its yield curve control policy and widened the trading band for the 10-year government bond yield in an unexpected tweak. (Policy is unchanged)
    *AUD & NZD drifted also after BOJ announcement.



    *Stocks – The NASDAQ tumbled -1.49%, with the S&P 500 falling -0.90%, while the Dow slid -0.49%. Nikkei closed with a -2.5% loss.
    *SUSOil – drifts to $75.20 from $76.55.
    *SGold – higher but still struggling to break the $1,800.
    *SBTC – retested again the $16,200 floor. – Sam Bankman-Fried to agree to US extradition after Bahamas court hearing.

    Today – US Housing Starts & Building Permits, Canadian Retail Sales, EU Consumer Confidence and NZ Trade data.



    Biggest FX Mover@ (07:30 GMT) AUDJPY (-3.32%). Broke 8-month support extending to 88.30, below 50-week EMA. Intraday MAs keep pointing lower, MACD histogram & signal line negative and falling. RSI 22 & flat, H1 ATR 0.4920, Daily ATR 1.1611.

    Market Update – December 21.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    *The USD Index stuck at 103.50 bottom. Stocks pick up overnight, after were pummeled Tuesday by the BoJ’s surprise hawkish tweak in its yield curve control. Yields: JGB 2-year rose above zero for the first time since 2015. 10-year Treasury yield cheapened 11 bps to hit 3.706%. The curve inversion unwound another 10 bps on the day to -57.9 bps and compares to the -84 bps two weeks ago.
    *EUR -jumps 20 pips at the EU open higher to 1.0630. German GfK consumer confidence improved to -37.8, a tad better than anticipated. All in all a number that ties in with expectations for a shallow and short lived recession, rather than a protracted slowdown.
    *JPY – trimmed -4% to 130.55. – Higher yields at home could make it more attractive for Japanese investors to repatriate some funds.




    *Stocks – Nikkei lost a further -0.7% after the BoJ’s curve ball yesterday. The ASX bounced 1.3%, and China bourses are also higher – as are stock futures across Europe and the US. The NASDAQ flat at 33,230, with the S&P 500 at 3,868, & the Dow up by 0.25%. #TSLA collapse continues -8% yesterday.
    *USOil – flat at $75, with Brent trading at $80.01 per barrel.
    *Gold – higher held at $1,815.

    Today – Canadian Inflation & US Consumer Confidence. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy is expected to travel to Washington to meet President Joe Biden.



    Biggest FX Mover@ (07:30 GMT) NZDUSD (-0.67%). Turned below 20-DMA. Intraday MAs flattened, MACD histogram & signal line negative and falling. RSI 40 & rising indicating a possible recovery or steadiness, H1 ATR 0.00151, Daily ATR 0.0084.

    Market Update – January 2 – Markets drift on weak Chinese data & IMF Outlook.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    With markets in Europe and North America closed today and only a few Asian markets open there was little direction on very limited volume. Weak PMI and Housing data from China on Saturday and a poor global outlook from the IMF yesterday start the New Year in the same down-beat way 2022 concluded. The Yen is the biggest gainer today.

    China’s official Services PMI cratered -5.1 points to 41.6 in December after falling -2.0 ticks to 48.7 in November. This is a sixth consecutive monthly decline, a third straight month in contraction, and the lowest level since February 2020. It was at 52.7 a year ago. The December manufacturing index slid -1 point to 47.0 after falling -1.2 points to 48.0 previously. It too is a third month below the 50 expansion-contraction mark, and is the eighth month in 2022 below 50. It is also the weakest since February 2020s 35.7.

    2023 is going to be a tough year as the main engines of global growth – the United States, Europe and China – all experience weakening activity. – IMF “tougher than the year we leave behind…China’s chaotic reopening is proving problematic”.

    *The USD Index down at 103.00 levels, but in 2022 the USD was King once again.
    *EUR – rotates back to 1.0700 levels today but tested 1.1500 highs and 0.9530 lows in 2022.
    *JPY – the strongest today and trades at 131.00 and 10-day lows, 2022 saw a breach of 150.00 form 113.00 lows.
    *GBP – Sterling traded over 1.4200 and under 1.0400 in a volatile (3 x Prime Minister, 5 x Finance Minister) 2022 for the UK. Today Cable holds over the key 1.2000 level at 1.2060.
    *Stocks – Wall Street collapsed during 2022 into Bear market territory once more (NASDAQ -33.10%) and the US500 lost over 900 points (-19.44%) its worst year since 2008. The MSCI Global equity index lost 18.7%.



    *USOil – Trades over $80.00, to start 2023. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine caused a spike to over $123.00 in February before falling to test $70.00 in December on weak global demand expectations.
    *Gold – Trades at $1830 levels today. Rising Inflation and interest rates in 2022 had a rather muted impact on the precious metal. The war-inspired February spike to $2070 was followed during the rest of the year to October lows under $1620, before recovering $1800 in December.
    *BTC – Sentiment woes continue. The biggest coin trades at $16,700 today after a tumultuous year which saw prices collapse from the $50,000 to the $15,000 level as the FTX saga broke.

    Today – No Economic data due.

    Biggest FX Mover@ (07:30 GMT) NZDJPY (-0.40%) muted moves in low volume FX markets. Continues to decline from last week’s rejection of 85.00, trades at 82.85 now, resistance at 83.00 and support at 82.50. MAs aligned lower, MACD histogram & signal line negative and falling. RSI 38.33 & falling, H1 ATR 0.173, Daily ATR 0.935.

    Market Update – January 3 – JPY & Gold add to gains.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Markets are back to full-time today to kick-start 2023 with a key week topped by NFP data on Friday and undermined by the ongoing rise in Covid cases and deaths in China. Japan and New Zealand remain closed today, but in Asia the ASX (-1.3%) is the laggard whilst Chinese bourses are on a firmer footing (Shanghai Comp +0.8%, Hang Seng +2.1%), despite weaker manufacturing PMI data from Caixin (49.0 vs 49.4). In FX markets JPY is the notable gainer across the majors (USDJPY -0.77% @ 129.50 and 6-mth lows earlier) and the USD is receiving a bid as European markets get into full swing (EURUSD at 1.0570 from 1.0675).

    *The USD Index remains capped by 103.50 today as the USD softens in early new year trading.
    *EUR – rotates at 1.0570 now, having spiked to 1.0710 on Monday but unable to hold this key round number.
    *JPY – moved lower again as the pivot from the BOJ becomes more baked-in to market thinking, the key 130.00 was breached earlier for the first time since June 2022.
    *GBP – Sterling holds significantly over 1.2000 at 1.2070 in the first London trades of the year.
    *Stocks – European and UK FUTS are higher and the US500.F trades at 3872 now, up from the 2022 close for the cash market at 3839.50.
    *USOil – Rallied to breach and hold $80.00 yesterday and trades at $80.70 now.
    *Gold – Has taken another leg higher today on USD weakness, continued CB rate hikes and subdued economic outlook. Breached $1830 in early trades and is testing the next resistance at $1850 now.
    *BTC – Sentiment woes continue – the biggest coin trades at $16.7k today.

    Today – German CPIs, Turkish CPI, UK & US final MFG PMI, US Construction Spending.



    [b]Biggest FX Mover[/b@ (07:30 GMT) EURJPY (-0.79%) into fourth consecutive day lower from 143.00 thighs last week to 138.30 today. MAs aligned lower, MACD histogram & signal line negative and falling. RSI 24.10 OS and still falling, H1 ATR 0.350, Daily ATR 1.823.

    The FOMC minutes continued to show inflation was the overriding concern. Participants generally noted that upside risks to the inflation outlook “remained a key factor” for policy. It was repeated that a restrictive stance would have to be maintained for a sustained period until inflation was “clearly” on a path toward 2%.

    Market Update – January 6.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    It was another “good news is bad news” trade with better-than-expected labor market reports boosting fears over a higher for longer stance from the FOMC. Hawkish Fedspeak added to the selloffs in stocks and bonds but supported the Dollar. Wall Street closed over -1.0% in the red and just off the day’s lows. Treasury yields spiked, led by the front end as the curve inverted further to -74.2 bps versus -67.2 bps Wednesday and the most since December 15. Tweaks in Fed policy outlooks remain a major driver for the markets, as heading into the key nonfarm payroll report today.

    *The USD Index jumped above 105.00 and holds.
    *EUR – back to 1.0500 bottom. German manufacturing orders plunged -5.3% m/m in November. German retail sales rose 1.1% m/m in November, less than hoped in light of the Black Friday sales, which are a relatively new phenomenon in Germany.
    *JPY – has lifted to 134.20.
    *GBP – under pressure to 1.1890.
    *Stocks – The US100 dropped by -1.42%, with the US500 -1.16% and the US30 off -1.02%. Nearly all the S&P 500 sectors were in the red with the exception of energy. AAPL -1.06%, MSFT -2.96% & AMZN -2.37%.



    *USOil – stuck at $73.80. Virus developments remained in focus and there is still speculation that China will add further support measures as the economy tries to cope with the impact of rising Covid-19 case numbers.
    *Gold – extended lower at $1832, after Putin ordered a holiday ceasefire in Ukraine from January 6-7. Bullion has fallen from an overnight peak of $1859.04.



    Today – Markets are now waiting for US payroll numbers and Eurozone inflation data, which are hoped to give further indications on the monetary policy path on both sides of the Atlantic.



    Biggest FX Mover@ (07:30 GMT) USDJPY (+0.73%). Above 134.00. MAs aligned higher, MACD histogram & signal line positive and rising. RSI 71 & neutral, H1 ATR 0.272, Daily ATR 1866.

    Market Update – January 9 – USD Index falls 9% from peaks.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Treasury and Wall Street soared on the heels of the NFP data where the net effect is a tempering in Fed rate hike expectations. The markets are cheering the cooling in wage growth and a softer but still resilient labor market. The erosion in the service sector is a bit ominous but adds to the belief that the FOMC will soften its stance with a 25-50 bp hike on February 1 following the 50 bp tightening in December.

    The jump in the workforce and easing wage growth & further signs of an economy slowing down with services contracting for the first time in more than 2-1/2 years in December = US economy recession, & Fed on its hiking path but no need to do too much!

    *The USD Index falls 9% from peaks. It drifted to 103.23 from 105.40 on Friday after the NFP. Fed funds futures are suggesting a 4.958% terminal rate in June.
    *China’s re-opening of its borders – could add further pressure on USD.
    *EUR – spiked to nearly 1.0700.
    *JPY – slightly higher today at 132.16 from 131.20 bottom.

    Market Update – January 10 – Wall Street in a dangerous game ahead of Powell, CPI, earnings.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Treasuries remained firm, yields finished off of their lows. Wall Street turned mixed in the afternoon after the US30 and US500 shed their advances. Hawkish Fedspeak from Bostic and Daly generated some cold feet and subsequent profit taking ahead of Fed Chair Powell’s comments later. The advent of $90 bln in coupon supply also weighed a bit.

    The FOMC minutes warned that an “unwarranted easing in financial conditions” would complicate the Fed’s efforts to bring down inflation, and the big rally in bonds and stocks in recent sessions is not what the FOMC wants to see. Already there has been some push back from Daly and Bostic regarding boosting rates over 5%. Will Powell feel compelled to oppose market rallies?

    *The USDIndex remained weak on the softer outlook on the FOMC, falling to a low of 102.94, though it closed at 103.19.
    *EUR – steady above 1.0700.
    *JPY – hovering around 132.10.
    *GBP – closed above 20-day SMA, retesting 1.2200.
    *Stocks – The US100 was up 0.63% at the close as tech found support from China’s reopening plays. The US30 dropped -0.34% and the US500 was off -0.08%. Wall Street is in the green with gains of about 1.5% to 2.4% for the year-to-date. The US500 is over 9.4% above its October low.





    *USOil – 2.8% higher at $75.85 per barrel and Brent up 2.4% at $80.46. Optimism over China’s economic re-opening has been supportive, boosting demand expectations. China announced more financial support to households and governments in a bid to revive the economy.
    *Gold – slightly lower at $1871 from $1881.

    Today – Speeches: BoJ’s Kuroda, ECB’s Schnabel, BoC Governor Macklem and Fed’s Chair Powell.



    Biggest FX Mover@ (07:30 GMT) EURAUD (+0.24%). Spiked by 41 pips at the EU open. MAs slightly higher, MACD histogram & signal line remain positive and rising. RSI 68 but flattened, H1 ATR 0.0028, Daily ATR 0.01406.

    Market Update – January 11 – Dollar stands still ahead of Thursday’s CPI.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Treasuries were more unidirectional while Yields have crept higher led by the long end. The curve has bear steepened to -65.6 bps from -68 bps Monday and -74 bps before Friday’s data. Wall Street was very choppy, trading either side of unchanged, after a positive opening. Chair Powell did not comment on policy matters in his Riksbank remarks. But Governor Bowman echoed hawkish comments from others of late. Gains had been shed as the market is pushed and pulled by crosscurrents of Fed policy dynamics, recession uncertainties, and upcoming earnings reports. Stock markets moved higher in Japan and Australia, the latter helped by stronger than expected retail sales numbers, which helped to balance the uptick in inflation that sparked fresh rate hike bets.





    *The USDIndex bounced to 103.35 from a low of 103.03, adding to some of the volatility in stocks.
    *EUR – ranging between 1.0700 – 1.0760.
    *JPY – neutral, hovering around 132.30
    *GBP – holds Friday’s gains. Range at 1.2110 – 1.2210.
    *Stocks – The US100, US30 and US500 are fractionally higher with +1.01%, +0.56% and +0.7% respectively. US100 remains stuck in the 10800-11400 range. Note the fact we are getting tighter and tighter inside the triangle like formation. The 100-day SMA and the negative trend line are the big resistance levels to watch, while 10800 is the “must hold” level.



    *USOil – fell by -0.48% to $74.66 per barrel and down from the $80.26 to end 2022.
    *Gold – up at $1884.60.

    Today – Crude Oil Inventories & New Zealand Building Permits.



    Biggest FX Mover@ (07:30 GMT) XAGUSD (+1.46%). Spiked to R2: 23.93. MAs slightly higher, MACD histogram & signal line are close to zero. RSI 63 but flattened, H1 ATR 0.094, Daily ATR 0.589.
