    *JPY – Sank to test 129.00 yesterday, before rallying to 130.50, back to 129.50 following the CPI data and now up to 130.00.
    *GBP – Sterling has rallied over 1.2400 yesterday and again today but has struggled to hold the key resistance level. Back to 1.2370 now.

    China Stock market returns from Luna New Year break.

Nikkei ended at a more than 1-month high today. Global Stocks excluding China are lower, USD steady and Yields picked up. European & UK FUTS also lower. The rout in India’s Adani Group is weighing on sentiment while the December income report showed cooling in income, a drop in spending, and deceleration in the annual measures of inflation, supporting the well-expected step down in the FOMC’s rate hikes to 25 bps on February 1.

    “Markets could sell stocks to book profits ahead of the Fed meeting, NFP, & earnings?”

Of the 25% of the S&P that has reported so far, nearly half have beaten sales estimates, and over 70% have beaten earnings.
    *Tesla +11.00% (7.2 million contracts were exchanged on Friday, according to Cboe Global Markets data, breaking the previous record of 5.2 million contracts set earlier this month and accounting for nearly 13% of all options trading) – its best week since 2013. Cashed out $175 million just on Friday.




    *USOil – jumped on the open but quick pullback below $80.00, alongside other raw materials including copper, with losses in oil also coming despite an Israeli drone strike against a target in Iran over the weekend, according to Wall Street.
    *Gold – Tested$1934 in themorning before turning to $1925 support.
    *BTC – Jumped to $23,854 buoyed by signs that the US Federal Reserve will slow the pace of its interest rate increases. Bitcoin rallied by more than 40% this month.

    Today – German Q4 GDP -1.1% decline; Earnings: More than 100 S&P 500 companies, including six Dow components, are slated to report earnings in the week ahead,i.e. Amazon, Apple, Alphabet, Meta, Ford, McDonald’s, Pfizer etc.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) AUDJPY (-0.48%). Declined from 92.65 high, to test S2 at 91.69. MAs aligning lower, MACD histogram & signal line turn negative. RSI 37 & neutral, H1 ATR 0.208, Daily ATR 1.246.

    Market Update – January 31 -Stocks Lower; Techs Lead Drop.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Global Stocks extend lower, USD steady and Yields picked up across the curve with the short end underperforming in a bear flattener given the Fed views. The curve flattened to -72 bps before unwinding to -70 bps. The looming FOMC decision on Wednesday and expectations for a hawkish trimming in the rate path left bonds and stocks heavy with buyers sidelined. Concerns over upcoming earnings from Apple, Amazon, Alphabet, and Meta also weighed. The US100 slumped -1.96%. European bonds and stocks were mostly lower too ahead of ECB and BoE rate decisions.

    Elsewhere:

    *China: Domestic orders and consumption and manufacturing PMI drove higher (>50). A rebound in non-manufacturing activity was more decisive than expected by economists – but helped by a seasonal surge in spending for the Lunar New Year holiday.
    *Japan Dec factory output inches down, retail sales beat forecasts
    *German retail sales down 5.3% m/m in December & December import prices -1.6% m/m, +12.6% y/y.
    The USD Index – firmed, however, rising to 102.32 assuming the Fed reiterates a higher for longer stance.
    *EUR – drifts to 1.0827.
    *JPY – rise slightly at 20-DMA i.e. 130.4.
    *GBP – struggling to break 1.2450.
    *Stocks – US100 -1.96% at 11929, US500 off -1.30% and the US30 -0.77%. Losses were broadbased.



    *USOil – down to $77.60, below 50-day SMA as the threat of further interest rate increases and ample Russian crude flows outweighed demand recovery expectations from China. OPEC+ panel is likely to recommend keeping the oil producer group’s current output policy unchanged when it meets tomorrow.
    Gold – at its 4th day lower, but still set for gain of 5% in January. Silver, platinum palladium are set *for a monthly decline.
    *BTC – held support at $22,400.

    Today – German unemployment, EU prelim GDP, US CB and NZ employment data; Earnings: AMD, Exxon, Pfizer, General Motors, Mc Donald’s, Marathon Petroleum etc.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) GBPAUD (+0.56%). Up to R2 of the day, i.e. 1.7586. MAs aligning higher, MACD histogram & signal line extends higher. RSI 71 & neutral, H1 ATR 0.00254, Daily ATR 0.01533.

    Always trade with strict risk management. Your capital is the single most important aspect of your trading business.

    Market Update – February 1 – US100 Posts Best January Since 2001.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Stocks and bonds corrected higher on Tuesday as the deceleration in ECI energized short covering and boosted risk appetite. Global Stock market finished with solid. Earnings were mixed, but a lot of bad news has been digested, opening the door for bargain hunting. Treasury yields declined, led by the front end as the market senses rate hikes are coming to an end. Month-end buying also contributed. Along with ECI, the calendar included further declines in home prices, a drop in consumer confidence, and a slide in the Chicago PMI.




    *UK: UK house prices inflation slowing down & shop prices continue to rise & the mortgage rate surge through October; will add to the arguments of the hawks at the MPC, adds to signs that against the background of rising interest rates and falling disposable income the housing market is slowing fast. The question is how fast and how long the correction will be as the risk that thousands are stuck in situation with negative equity where loans exceed house values could exacerbate an already very difficult situation for the UK economy.
    *China:China Caixin manufacturing PMI signals ongoing contraction. Unlike the official PMI report, the Caixin General Manufacturing PMI remained below the 50 point no change mark and nudged only slightly higher – to 49.2 from 49.0 in December last year.
    *The USD Index – slumped to 101.991 as the market saw fading prospects of an aggressive stance from the FOMC, even though many expect Chair Powell to push back against the rallies in bonds and stocks.
    *EUR – advances slightly to 1.0879 from 1.0800.
    *JPY – steady for 6 days in a row 130.00 – 130.40. BOJ buys record $182 billion worth of bonds in January
    *GBP – drifted to 1.2300 bottom.
    *Stocks – US100 +1.67% at 12118, for a 10.68% surge on the month, US500 1.46% higher and up 6.18% for January, the best monthly gain since October. And it is the first January increase since 2019. The US30 rose 1.09% on the day for a 2.83% monthly gain. Exxon smashes Western oil majors’ profits with $56 billion in 2022. AMD revenue beats targets, Wall St relieved after Intel’s grim outlook. GM shoves aside recession fears with robust 2023 forecast. Pfizer sees steep 2023 fall in COVID sales, aims to bolster pipeline.



    *USOil – rebounded from 76.50 to 79.40 yesterday. The IMF has also lifted its global growth forecast and that should likely keep demand expectations and prices underpinned.
    *Gold – closed at 1928.
    *BTC – held above 23000 into the new month.

    Today – EU prelim. HCPI, US ADP employment change, US ISM Manufacturing and FED meeting and Press Conference. Earnings: Meta, Novo, Thermo Fisher, Novartis, Sony etc.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) Coffee (+6.66%).Bounced to 182 from 169.40. MAs aligning higher, MACD histogram & signal line extends higher. RSI 86 but lower , H1 ATR 1.77, Daily ATR 5.48.

    Market Update – February 2 – A Continued Battle of Wills.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Stocks surged, Yields dove sharply, the US Dollar slumped, on Wednesday while they are holding their gains/losses so far today as well. The FOMC delivered the 25bp rate hike as expected, reaching 4.75%, an eighth straight hike. The moderation & the lack of anything new or overly hawkish from Powell’s comments and when he acknowledged progress in the fight against inflation opened the door for bulls and a healthy short covering rally, eventhough he stressed that the labor market remains “extremely tight” and that inflation remains “well above our longer-run goal.”

    Markets remain convinced that a widely expected recession is likely to roil markets once again sometime this year.

    The policy statement and Chair Powell’s press conference reiterated that “ongoing increases in the target range will be appropriate,” that rates need to be “restrictive for some time,” that it is too soon to declare victory, and that rate cuts are not in the outlook.


    *The USD Index – was the only real casualty of the markets’ dovish take, having fallen to 100.65 as the continued downshift in rate hikes over the last few FOMC decisions is increasing the chances that the tightening cycle is nearing an end, which continues to support markets.
    *EUR – finally broke the key 1.0900 extending to 1.1000.
    *JPY – drift to 128.00 from 130.50.
    *GBP – at 1.2388, up 0.10% on the day.
    *Stocks – US100 +2% at 12,528, US500 1% higher to 4,163 but the US30 steady at 34100. Shell makes record $40 billion annual profit. Meta surged nearly 19% in after-hours trade as it announced with lower costs, big buyback, upbeat sales. Deutsche Bank’s fourth-quarter profit surged, exceeding expectations and contributing to a third consecutive year of profit.



    *USOil – we have seen a short- leave rise 77.40 after rebounded from 76.00 bottom, after US government data showed big builds in crude and oil products inventory. OPEC+ agreed to cut its production target by 2 million barrels per day (bpd), about 2% of world demand, from November last year until the end of 2023 to support the market.
    *Gold – skyrocketed to 1959.
    *BTC – advanced to 24254.

    Today – ECB seen raising rates by 50 basis points & BoE set to lift rates to 14-year high, might hint at next moves. Earnings: Apple, Amazon, Alphabet, Eli Lilly, Roche Holdings, Shell, Qualcomm etc.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) XAGUSD (+2.59%). Bounced to R1 at 24.27. MAs flattened, MACD histogram & signal remain well above 0, RSI 63 but flat suggesting , H1 ATR 1.77, Daily ATR 5.48.

    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Chair Powell’s comments – cancelled each other out – talked more “disinflation” with “significant declines in inflation.” in 2023 but the surprise 517k NFP he could not explain – adding to the 5-5.25% range argument. Fed Fund futures are now pricing the terminal rate at 5.15% in July. (up from 4.9% ahead of NFP). So “As we were.” USD slipped and then reversed, Stocks (NASDAQ +1.90%) & Yields (US10yr 3.6745) closed higher.

    *JPY – Declined over 1.3% yesterday to 130.40 lows, over 131.00 now at 131.20.
    *GBP – Sterling rallied to 1.2080 then weakened again to breach the psychological 1.2000 yesterday to touch 23-day lows at 1.1960. The pair is back to 1.2050 now.
    *Stocks – The US markets rallied on the disinflation side of the story (0.78% to 1.90%) US500 1.29%, (52.94) 4164, holding the key 4100. US500 FUTS trade at next key resistance 4175. MSFT +4.2%, GOOG +4.42% & Bidu +12.18%. All rallied on AI news, Oil majors rallied on back of BP Earnings. ATVI +5.62% on back of MSFT, their own Earnings and takeover rumours.



    *USOil – Futures rallied again to trade at $77.55 today from $72.20 lows on Monday.
    *Gold – Advanced from $1865 lows yesterday to $1880 resistance now.

    Market Update – February 13 – Stocks Cautious & USD Up.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    The consistency of the hawkish message, that rates are going higher and will remain in restrictive territory, is finally hitting home and yields rose in sync and weighed heavily on stocks and bonds this year.

    *Nikkei loses 1%, US500 futures 0.4%, US Dollar extends gains before US CPI & retail data. Asian shares fell ahead of the data but also due to the weak earnings that weighed on the sentiment.
    *Lyft, Tokyo Electron (-4.39%), SoftBank (-1.12%), Advantest (-1.57%), Shiseido (-3.97%), Olympus (-2.25%).

    In case you missed it, the Morgan Stanley Market Sentiment Indicator (MSI) has turned risk negative & the GS program trading desk writes: “Inflecting CTA flow could translate to an approx. 20% sell off in US equities over a month in a down tape scenario”.



    *FX – USDIndex UP – saw a high of 103.70 before correcting to currently 103.44. Reuters: “Risks could be to the upside given a re-analysis of seasonal factors released last week saw upward revisions to CPI in December and November. That lifted core inflation on a 3-month annualised basis to 4.3%, from 3.1%.”
    *EUR & GBP – extend losses against USD – 1.0680 & 1.2057 respectively.
    *JPY – held above 132 area on reports that Japan’s government is likely to appoint academic Kazuo Ueda as the- next BOJ governor, a surprise choice that could see the country finally align with other major economies in raising interest rates.
    *USDJPY – if 132.80 is broken, next R: 134.80.



    *Commodities – USOil – steady at 79 after +2% spike. If higher inflation then concerns could increase that the move would slow economic activity and demand for oil. Russia to cut oil output by 500,000 bpd in March.
    *Reuters – “Oil may resume its rally in 2023 as Chinese demand recovers after COVID curbs were scrapped and lack of investment limits growth in supply, OPEC country officials told Reuters, with a growing number seeing a possible return to $100 a barrel.”
    *Gold – sideways at $1856-1867.
    *Cryptocurrencies – BTC – Tested $21.3k lows, currently at $21.8k.

    Today – We have heavy release schedule through mid-February. We expect Fed policy, US January retail sales, inflation indexes, housing starts, permits and Philly Fed indexes.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) NZDJPY (+0.84%). Extends above 20 DMA. MAs remain aligned higher, MACD histogram & signal line turned positive, RSI 72, H1 ATR 0.15, Daily ATR 0.861.
