    Market Update – February 14 – Pivotal Day.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Markets have prepped for today’s CPI report over the last several sessions, while also pricing in a more hawkish FOMC stance going into Q2.

    *Stocks high, Treasuries mixed and US Dollar sagged. Shorter dated Treasuries underperformed and were in the red most of the day as a “higher for longer” Fed stance was more fully priced in.
    *Gains in Microsoft, Apple, and Meta helped boost tech Nasdaq. Microsoft +3.12%, pushing its market cap over $2 trillion, Meta +3.03% after the Financial Times reported that Meta is planning another round of layoffs. Tesla -1.14%.
    *FX – USDIndex sagged – slumped to 102.93 today, from an overnight high of 103.83, helped by a rebound in USDJPY.
    *EUR & GBP – extend losses against USD – 1.0737 & 1.2170 respectively. UK ILO unemployment held steady but employment rose in the three months to December. The tight labour market and wide spread strike action is forcing companies to up wage offers and regular pay in order to keep hold of skilled staff.
    *JPY – just a breath below 133 before pullback to 132 again. The Yen recouped losses as Japan nominated a new central bank governor in a closely watched decision & as Japan’s Q4 GDP growth lags below expectations.
    *The US100 led the way with a 1.48% bounce, followed by the US500’s 1.14% advance, while the US30 was up 1.11%.



    *USOil – down at 79 area again but stands above 20-DMA. It fell after the US unveiled a plan to release supplies from its strategic reserves, offsetting price pressures triggered by rising demand in China and Russia’s plan to cut output. (Reuters)
    *Gold – sideways for a 3rd day at $1856-1867.
    *Cryptocurrencies – BTC – at $21.7k.

    Today – All eyes are on US Inflation. EU prelim GDP is also on tap.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) NZDJPY (-0.65%). Holds at 20 DMA. MAs flattened, MACD lines are at 0, RSI 44 presenting that pullback has run out of steam. H1 ATR 0.146, Daily ATR 0.883.

    *Stocks – The US markets mixed again (-0.46% to +0.57%) led by #TSLA +7.51 & #NVDA +5.54% (Buffet has increased stake in #APPL) US500 flat -0.03% (-1.16) 4136, holding the key 4100. US500 FUTS lower at 4122 now.



    *Commodities – USOil – Futures topped at $80.60 yesterday before sinking under $78.00 now as US private Inventories rose (EIA data today). Gold – tanked from $1870 highs yesterday to $1836 lows today on a stronger USD.
    *Cryptocurrencies – BTC – Tested $21.5k lows again yesterday before retaking $22k now.

    Market Update – February 16 – USD & Yields hit new recent highs & Stocks bounce.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    A big beat for US Retail Sales, lifted the USD, Treasury Yields and global stock markets, with a raft of “soft landing” scenarios swirling and even talk of a “no landing”, a situation where inflation cools quickly, the economy grows steadily and unemployment remains low without having a knock-on effect for inflation. A real disparity in views now emerging. Goldman Sachs cut the chance of a US recession in the next 12 months to 25%, from 35%; US 2yr/10yr yield curve at -87bp as the 10yr hits a 7-week high. Overnight: Japan reported it’s largest ever trade deficit at $174 billion as imports surged due to high energy costs with exports unable to compensate. AUD lower after a slump in jobs (-11.5k vs +20k) & unemployment up (3.7% from 3.5%).

    *FX – USD Index tested into 104.00 for a 28-day high. Back to 103.65 now. EUR tested the weekly low at 1.0670 before recovering 1.0700, JPY breached 134.00 (new 28-day high) & tardes at 133.86 now. Sterling declined from 1.2175 to once again bounce from below 1.2000 to trade at 1.2050 now. Nicola Sturgeon the First Minister of Scotland announced a shock resignation, that will likely strike a blow for Scottish independence and increase the chances of the Labour Party at next years general election.
    *Stocks – The US markets rose into close after a weak open. (+0.11% to +0.92%) Movers – #ABNB +13.35% & COIN +17.5%, OXY & PXD both shed over -5.2%. US500 0.28% (11.47) 4147, holding the key 4100. US500 FUTS 4161 now.



    *Commodities – USOil – Futures dropped to $77.20, 5-day lows, yesterday after a very large inventories build of 16.3m barrels vs. 2.4m barrels last week. Prices have recovered to $79.20 today. Gold – tested the support level at $1830 yesterday before recovering to $1840.
    *Cryptocurrencies – BTC – Surged over +10% yesterday from $22.0k lows, to breach the key $24k resistance area and test to 24.9k highs.

    Today – US Building Permits/Housing Starts, Philly Fed, PPI, Weekly Claims. Speeches from Fed’s Bullard, Cook & Mester, ECB’s Lane, Panetta & de Guindos, BoE’s Pill. EARNINGS – Pernod Ricard (miss), Commerzbank, (+7.5%) Orange, Airbus, Standard Chartered (+2.11%), Nestle (in-line -0.49%) , Paramount & Dropbox.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) USDJPY (-0.34%). Rallied to 134.35 yesterday but has dipped to 133.75 now. MA’s now flat, MACD histogram & signal line positive but declining, RSI 51.42, H1 ATR 0.196, Daily ATR 1.588.

    Market Update – February 17 – Data Continue to Surprise.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Hawkish policy outlooks from Bullard and Mester (50 bps boosts from both), on top of more strong economic reports, added to the selling pressures in Treasuries and on Stocks. PPI and jobless claims, on top of the hot CPI, nonfarm payrolls, and retail sales reports added to the bearish impact but boosted the safety of USD along with pricing in of rate hikes.

    24% of global fund managers now expect a recession, down from 77% in November, according to a recent survey by BofA Global Research.



    *USD Index spiked to 104.40.
    *GBP – This morning, retail sales volumes unexpectedly rose by 0.5% in monthly terms in January but the overall picture remained one of weak demand from inflation-hit consumers. GBPUSD – at 200-DMA, i.e. 1.1936 – Next Support: 1.1840.
    *Stocks – The US markets dipped in the last trading hour of US session. US100 (-1.78%), US500 (-1.38%), US30 (-1.26% at close). Tesla (-5.69%) laid off 4% of NY employees & recalled 362,000 US vehicles over Full Self-Driving software. NatWest (+4.97% afterhours, -9% in London currently) profit jumps by a third on revenue boost from rate rises. Allianz (currently +0.55%) swung to a fourth-quarter net profit, marking a return to the black. Mercedes (currently +0.33%) warned of lower earnings this year due to economic uncertainty.



    *Commodities – USOil – Futures dropped to $77.26, Wednesday’s floor, as a hawkish FED could hit fuel demand even as crude stockpiles grow. It held 34-week below 20-WMA.
    *Gold – drifts below S1 at $1822 today. Next support at $1818 and $1809.
    *Cryptocurrencies – BTC – Plummeted to $23,317 on USD strength. Reuters Exclusive: Crypto giant Binance moved $400 million from US partner to firm managed by CEO Zhao.

    Today – Speeches from Fed’s Barkin and Bowman. EARNINGS – Deere & Company.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) NZDUSD (-0.91%). Dip to 0.6195 now. MAs extend lower, MACD histogram & signal line negative and declining, RSI 22.80, H1 ATR 0.00117, Daily ATR 0.0080.

    Aussie & Kiwi Post RBA, Ahead Of RBNZ.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    The minutes of the RBA meeting showed that the committee believes the cash rate is currently lower than in many economies, while the data showed a higher than expected breadth and persistence of inflation. They supported continued rate hikes in the coming months (25 bps or 50 bps may be considered, with medium-term inflation expectations holding up well.) On peak interest rates, the Committee noted that this would depend on household income and expenditure outflows, employment and price movements.


    Chart 1: Japanese manufacturing and services PMI. source: Trading Economics

    On the other hand, the Asia Pacific trading session saw a mixed performance from Japan’s PMI data for February. In manufacturing, the data was pressured below the waning line for the fourth consecutive month and posted the largest decline since August 2020 at 47.4 vs. 48.9. The report showed that weak global demand led to a further decline in buying activity and that foreign sales were contracting at a faster pace, leading to the largest decline in both output and new orders since July 2020. In the services sector, the figure was recorded at 53.6, the highest since June last year. This was mainly due to a faster rate of growth in new orders and a modest increase in new business from abroad. Overall, the performance of the manufacturing and services PMIs offset each other, with the final Japanese composite PMI remaining unchanged at 50.7 in February.


    Figure 2: Japanese inflation rate. Source: Trading Economics

    Japanese inflation remains high. In December 2022, inflation in Japan rose to 4% year-on-year, the highest level since January 1991. A weaker Yen and higher imported raw material prices have contributed to the price spike. Not only that, but core inflation also recorded a 4% annual increase, the biggest rise since December 1981. BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said later that wages would rise in line with rising labour demand and inflation, but “believe inflation will slow down in the middle of fiscal 2023“.

    Haruhiko Kuroda will attend his last monetary policy meeting in office next month. He will be succeeded by Kazuo Ueta, an academic and former member of the Bank of Japan’s policy committee. This figure is “an unknown quantity” to many, but according to Professor Shibu Takahashi, who has worked with him, Kazuo Ueta cannot be classified as a Hawk or a Dove. “He is a “pragmatic problem solver“. Kuroda’s decision on yield curve control (YCC) at the last meeting will be a key one. If he chooses not to act, then Kazuo Ueta could face “massive bond sell-off” pressure after taking office.

    The next key event meanwhile for the Asia region is the RBNZ policy announcement tonight. The RBNZ last announced an interest rate decision around three months ago, when they raised rates by 75bp to bring rates to 4.25%. 400bp has been added to the tightening cycle, with November’s 75bp hike being the cycle’s most extreme increase. The decision is now between adding an additional 75bp to raise rates to 5% or sticking with 50bp to bring rates to 4.75%.

    Not only has inflation fallen short of the RBNZ’s own expectations, but measures of corporate confidence have also fallen to an all-time low, and their business PSI has barely expanded, suggesting that the economy should have slowed. The inflation forecast over the next two years fell from 3.6% to 3.3%, but the forecast for next year is still historically high at 5.1%.

    Overall, a 50bp increase is the most likely scenario, but a 75bp increase is also a possibility. Therefore, the focus is on how hawkish or not the RBNZ’s statements are perceived to be and whether or not they signal that the tightening cycle is coming to an end.

    Technical Analysis: NZDUSD & AUDJPY



    NZDUSD

    NZDUSD, D1 – This currency pair has slipped below the 200-day EMA slope to test 0.6190 support. A break of this price level would show that the 0.5510 rebound has ended at 0.6537 (50% FR of 0.7463 – 0.5510 drawdown) and instead, the decline from the 0.7463 peak will resume back towards lower price levels. As long as the 0.6190 support remains intact, the upside movement could test 0.6389 and the 0.6537 interim high.

    Overall, the price bias is still neutral despite the RSI mark at 39 and MACD is still in the selling zone. So certainly, the RBNZ event will be the next trend parameter.



    AUDJPY
    The daily chart shows the AUDJPY rebounding from a 9-month low on 20 December last year, then rising and in an uptrend channel area. The pair is currently testing the key FR50.0% resistance at 92.70. A successful break would mean a continuation of the upside pattern for AUDJPY with the next resistance at 94 (FR 61.8%) and 96 (FR 78.6%), which intersects the top line of the uptrend channel. If pressured, it could fall back and test the 100-day SMA, then 91.40 (FR 38.2%; bottom line of the rising channel) and 89.70 (FR 23.6%).

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

    Market Update – February 22 – It has gotten ugly out there!


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    US Stocks recorded their worst day in two months, Yields soared with 10-year Treasuries hitting three-month peak. Vix index, a measure of stock market volatility and often dubbed Wall Street’s “fear gauge”, rose above 23, its second highest level of the year. Fears over a more hawkish FOMC stance for a longer period of time continued to weigh on the markets. More strong data added further to the hawkish Fed case as well with the S&P Global PMIs climbing more than expected, with the services and composite indexes rising back into expansionary territory. US housing market weakened in January for the 12th straight month as continued high mortgage rates kept buyers on the sidelines. RBNZ delivered 50bp hike as expected.

    *USDIndex slightly below 104, hovering around 23%. The market has fully priced in further rates hikes with a 25 bp increase on March 22, and another 25 bp on May 3.
    *USDEUR– retests 1.06 area once again as markets keep pricing in ECB lifting rates to all-time high.
    *USDStocks – Wall Street slumped. US100 (-2.50%), US500 (-2%), US30 (-2.06%). Stocks were also hurt by the disappointing guidance from Walmart (+0.61%) and Home Depot (-7.06%), as well as fears from increased competition from China as it reopens, with some indications of easing restrictions on tech. Tesla (-5.25%), Coinbase (-4.80%).



    *USDLithium crashed by 30% – Could affect EV manufacturers!
    *USDCommodities – USOil dropped to $75.55.
    *USDGold – steady at $1838.
    *USDCryptocurrencies – BTC – Slightly lower to $24,050.

    Market Update – February 24 – Stocks & Bonds seem oversold.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Stocks had a limited rebound despite the hotter than expected inflation and jobs data. Yields rise when bond prices fall, so there was a marginal unwinding of some of this month’s hefty selloff. Data showed the labor market remains historically tight. Initial jobless claims, a proxy for layoffs, decreased by 3,000 to a seasonally adjusted 192,000 last week, well below the 2019 pre-pandemic average. It looks as though fears of the Fed hawkishness has peaked, at least for now, and the market is settling in for a long fight against inflation. Traders now see a 27% chance the Fed could lift rates by a more aggressive half point at its next meeting, up from just 1.3% a month ago.

    *USDUSD Index remains choppy, holding the 104.00 level for a third day, but is off its 104.68 overnight high.
    *USDJPY rallied to 135.36 ahead of Friday’s hearing in the lower house of parliament on the nomination of Kazuo Ueda as the next BoJ governor, and after current BoJ Governor Kuroda said the Bank plans to maintain its accommodative stance, but it has fallen back to 134.00. Currently settled at 134.80.



    *USDStocks – Stocks are firmer, with the US500 and US100 up about 0.6%, while the US30 is 0.45% higher. A pop in Nvidia (+14%) after an earnings beat is boosting chips and underpinning tech. Nvidia, one of the index’s biggest constituents, said late Wednesday that it is expecting an AI-driven boom and a recovery in its videogame business. Wayfair shares dropped by -23%. The online furniture retailer said it lost 5 million customers in 2022 and posted an annual net loss of $1.3 billion. Moderna’s stock slid by -6.7%, after the drugmaker reported lower quarterly revenue and earnings, as demand for its Covid-19 vaccine fell.
    *USDCommodities – USOil rebounded to $76.30 as the prospect of lower exports from Russia offset rising inventories in the United States, despite US inventories being at their highest level since May 2021.
    *USDGold – steady above $1817.
    *USDCryptocurrencies – BTC – rebounded to $23,800.

    Today - US PCE, Home Sales and US Michigan Index.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) USOIL (+1.23%) recovers to 76.30. MAs aligned higher, MACD histogram & signal line turn positive, RSI 68. ATR (1H) at 0.25 and ATR(D) at 2.11.
