    Market Update – October 18 – Data Fuels Higher-for-Longer Bets.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Asian equities followed US stocks lower after strong retail data. Treasury yields continued to shoot higher, reaching new cycle peaks. Data revived fear of an even higher Fed rate stance for an even longer period of time. Implied Fed funds futures climbed and priced in a 53% chance for a hike by the end of January. However, the market still shows only a small, less than 20% chance, for a move on November 1 since many policymakers have advocated a wait-and-see stance for now. China’s economy grew 4.9% in the third quarter. A largely positive report that confirms that China’s economy has bottomed out, even if the recovery may not be quite as strong as some had hoped.

    UK inflation was higher than anticipated, against expectations for a slight deceleration in the annual rate. Core inflation decelerated to 6.1% y/y, the lowest rate since January, but still a tad higher than markets had expected.



    *USDIndex has nudged down to 105.75 from a session high of 106.32.
    *Stocks: NVIDIA closed at -4.68%, as the US is restricting the sale of chips that Nvidia designed specifically for the Chinese market, part of sweeping new updates to export curbs. Asian semiconductor stocks declined.
    *USOIL broke $87 on renewed concerns in Middle East conflict.
    *Gold rises to 4-week high, at 1942.70, as Israel-Hamas conflict drives demand for safe-haven assets. Israel’s military has bombarded Gaza with air strikes in anticipation of a widely expected ground invasion against Hamas.
    *Today: US Building Permits & FOMC Waller & Harker Speeches.

    Interesting Mover: UK100 retests the neckline of a possible inverse head and shoulder formation, at 7715-7740. A breakout could turn attention to the 7800 area.

    Market Update – October 19 – Stock markets pressured, as bond yields rise.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Stock markets have remained underwater through the Asian part of the session, and European as well as US futures are in the red, as markets eye developments in the Middle East. The Israel-Hamas war continued to shake the markets. The explosion at a Gaza hospital on Tuesday, and the failure of diplomatic efforts to bring all sides together for negotiations, added to the increasingly tense tone and the threat of a widening in the conflict.



    Treasury yields have backed up to 4.958% and the 10-year Bund yield is eyeing the 3% mark, as oil prices remain at high levels. The Fed’s Williams said interest rates will have to stay at restrictive levels “for some time” and the higher for longer message, not just from the Fed, but the BoE and ECB as well, is adding to pressure on stocks and bonds.

    *USDIndex has lifted to 106.6, the VIX jumped 8.4% to 19.38.
    *Stocks: Wall Street was in decline from the open and tumbled sharply into the close. Poor earnings and/or guidance added to the selling. The US100 closed with a -1.62% loss, while the US500 was -1.34% lower, and the US30 off -0.98%. In spite of the risk-off flows, Treasuries failed to benefit due to worries over the strength in the economy keeping inflation elevated. There are also fiscal policy concerns with the massive, and increasing, deficit and debt.
    *USOIL prices are off highs, after the US suspended some sanctions on Venezuelan output, but the front end WTI contract is still at $86.80 per barrel, Brent over $91 per barrel.
    *Gold rose 1.38% to $1963, as escalating tensions in the Middle East have boosted haven flows today and the precious metal benefited, while Treasuries and EGBs pared losses.
    *Today: Fed Powell speech, US Jobless Claims and Philly Fed.



    Interesting Mover: EURAUD (+0.60%) breaking downchannel and inverse head and shoulder formation at 1.6650, indicating a potential return to 1.69 highs.

    Market Update – October 23 – A suspiciously calm day.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Asian markets sold off after a weaker close on Wall Street on Friday. Mainland China bourses underperformed as investors remain dissatisfied with official support measures and the lack of further rate cuts. Futures are under pressure across Europe and the US, amid signs that war jitters are easing as investors watch diplomatic efforts to contain the Israel-Hamas conflict. The 10-year Treasury yield has backed up 5.1 bp to 4.97%, the German 10-year rate is up 2.9 bp and the 10-year JGB yield jumped 2.6 bp. Oil and gold declined this morning driven by concerns regarding the sustained period of elevated interest rates and tensions in the Middle East.



    *USDIndex turns below 106, EURUSD extends to 1.0593. The VIX climbed to the highest since March and the banking stresses.
    *Stocks: China’s tech gauge drifts to record lows since its inception more than three years ago, worn down by concerns over higher US rates’ impact on global liquidity and a weak export outlook. The US100 plunged -1.53% to 12,983, below 13k for the first time since May. The US30 was off -0.86%. A flight to quality boosted demand for Treasuries, especially after the dovish reading on Chair Powell’s comments.
    *Earnings season ramps up this week, with a slew of big tech titans slated to report, i.e. Alphabet, Amazon, Meta and Microsoft.
    *USOIL corrected to $86.80 per barrel and Gold recovered to $1981 as risk aversion recedes for now.
    *BTCUSD saw its biggest weekly gain since June. Currently at 30540.



    Interesting Mover: US500 (-1.53%) to 4236, breaking below the 200-day moving average to add to the sour tone, with immediate support levels at 4200 and 4130.

    Market Update – October 24.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    The sell off in Treasuries abated in the later part of Monday as low prices attracted buyers. Stock markets are also looking somewhat more stable and most Chinese stock gauges improved after the country’s sovereign wealth fund bought exchange traded funds to boost prices. Stock futures are higher across Europe and the US, although the UK100 is struggling. Early data releases in Europe were far from stellar, with German consumer confidence falling again, Eurozone Composite PMI falling to a 35 month low and jobless claims rising in the UK. Bonds have continued to find buyers and the 10-year Treasury yield has corrected a further -5.0 bp to 4.80%, while the 10-year Bund yield is down -5.3 bp at 2.82%, after the 10-year JGB corrected -2.5 bp.



    *USDIndex found some ground at 105.46, GBPUSD extended to 1.2287 well above PP and 1.22 lows.
    *RBA Governor Michele Bullock: risks inflation would prove more stubborn than expected and that interest rates might have to rise further to bring it to heel.
    *Stocks: Chinese stock gauges improved after the country’s sovereign wealth fund bought exchange traded funds to boost prices. Stock futures are slightly higher across Europe and the US, although the UK100 is struggling. The US500 remains though below the 200-day moving average.
    *Oil & Gold face some near term selling pressure, as the subsequent drop in rates provide some support for Equities while the USDIndex slumped. The 5% yield level on the 10-year, the first time with that handle since 2007, helped stop the bleeding in the bond market.



    Interesting Mover: BTCUSD 12% higher breaching April 2022 highs and 35K. Crypto linked stocks followed as well, as speculation about the possibility of a bitcoin ETF approval drove enthusiasm.

    Market Update – October 25 – Stocks in Red; Dollar recovers.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Investors cheered the approval of a trillion-yuan sovereign issue as a harbinger of stimulus, while the Chinese government unveiled new support plans that include issuing additional sovereign debt and lifting the budget deficit ratio to finance fresh measures. Hong Kong reversed a pandemic-increase in stock trade levies and Chief Executive John Lee also announced a plan to halve taxes on home purchases for residents as well as non-residents. That helped to boost property stocks, even as troubled Chinese developer Country Garden Holdings Co. was deemed to be in default on a dollar bond for the first time.



    *Stock markets got a boost from fresh stimulus measures for China. The Hang Seng has pared some of its early gains, but is still up 1.0%, while the CSI300 has lifted 0.6% and the JPN225 0.7%.
    *European stocks: In the red today weighed by a flurry of bank results and a mixed batch of US Big Tech earnings ahead of the ECB decision tomorrow.
    *Microsoft, Alphabet, and Visa reported their earnings, which indicated strong performance with revenue and net income growth in their respective quarters.
    *Alphabet (-6% in after-hours) sales beat damped by cloud computing miss.
    *Microsoft’s (+4% in after-hours) unexpected rebound in Azure cloud growth lifted shares.
    *Snap Inc. also reported revenue growth but experienced operating and net losses in the same period.
    *Santander net profit rose 20% on record-high interest rates.
    FED: PMIs kept a Fed rate hike through the January 31 FOMC decision on the table with a 40% probability.
    *USDIndex: returned above 106, but held sideways.
    *AUDUSD: Aussie Dollar jumped after hotter-than-expected inflation lifted rate hike forecasts for the RBA next month, which would come after four rate pauses.
    *USOIL steadied today at key 4-month support trendline after a 3-day sharp decline, amid signs that the Israel-Hamas war will remain contained for the time being at least. $83 is a key hurdle, which could indicate a move to $80.
    *Gold holds gains above $1970.
    *Bitcoin is up 15% this week amid speculation that ETF applications from BlackRock and others will succeed and drive capital into the asset class.
    *Today: Germany IFO business climate, BOC rate decision, US new home sales and IBM, Meta earnings.



    Interesting Mover: USDCAD broken the descending trendline from the draw tops of 1.3977 and 1.3861.

    Date: 26th October 2023.

    Market Update – October 26.

    Stocks and bonds were routed midweek. Tech shares were slammed after poor earnings news from Alphabet knocked its shares down nearly -10%, spreading gloom across the sector. A surge in Treasury yields added to the selloff. Meanwhile, ongoing signs of the strength in the economy after a pop in new home sales did not help. Instead, it added to expectations that a big jump in GDP on Thursday will keep a Fed rate hike in the picture later in the year or early 2024. That and fears over other big headwinds ahead added to a negative feedback loop that growth will slow sharply next year, further hurting investor sentiment.



    *Stock markets: The US100 crashed -2.43%, its worst slide since February. The US500 lost -1.43%, falling below the key 4200 level. The US30 slid -0.32%. The JPN225 underperformed and corrected -2.1, amid disappointing big tech earnings.
    *Futures are lower across Europe and the US as markets wait for key central bank decisions, with the ECB kicking things off today.
    *Alphabet shares logged their worst session since March 2020 overnight, dropping 9.5% as investors were disappointed with stalling growth in its cloud division.
    *META fell 4% on Wednesday and another 3% in after-hours trade after publishing results showing better-than-expected revenue but a cloudy outlook, with expenses seen topping Wall Street estimates.
    *USDJPY has broken back above the 150.00 mark, hitting 150.80 (highest since October) after finding courage to test the MoF again. The combination of expectations for more evidence of the strong US economy, including GDP, and the potential for another rate hike from the FOMC, are boosting the buck versus JPY, especially with still-fragile Japanese growth, along with rising expectations the BoJ will maintain its uber accommodative stance at its policy meeting next week.
    *USDCAD rose to a high of 1.381 after the BOC’s announcement, the highest since early March and the SVB bank failure.
    *USOIL recovered to $85 after a fall due to a rise in US crude stockpiles and a climb in US Dollar.
    *Gold retests week’s resistance at $1988.
    *Today: ECB meeting, US Durable Goods and Advanced GDP.



    Interesting Mover: USDIndex got legs after the BoC left policy unchanged and downgraded its GDP forecasts.

    Market Update – October 27 – Investors poised for weekly profits.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Stock market sentiment improved, and Asian equities bounced, alongside gains in European and US futures. Earnings reports helped tech stocks to stabilise, ahead of more key US data. The 10-year Treasury yield is up 3.2 bp at 4.88%, after strong GDP numbers yesterday. Eurozone bonds meanwhile continued to find buyers, after the ECB effectively confirmed yesterday that in the central scenario rates have peaked. The schedule for the re-investment of PEPP redemptions was also left untouched, which helped peripherals to outperform and spreads to come in. US economy expanded at its quickest pace in almost 2 years in the latest sign of the country’s economic resilience.



    *Stock markets: Wall Street close in red for a 2nd session. The US100 has cratered -2.05%. The US500 has dropped -1.28% and is -3.2% lower, with the US30 down -0.77% today and -1.9%. Over the past 5 sessions the indexes are posting declines of -4.75%, -3.2%, and -1.9%, respectively. Today, stock sentiment improved.
    *Asian shares rose after strong Q3 sales at Amazon helped drive a recovery in investor sentiment following weak results from other technology groups earlier in the week.
    *Amazon (+5.36% after hours) sees best profits since 2021.
    *Meta (+0.95% after hours) ad revenue (+23%) fuels blowout Q3, $11.6 billion in profits.
    *Elon Musk just lost $28 billion as Tesla (+1.25% after hours) took a beating.
    *USDIndex has lost altitude slightly to 106.36 after climbing to 106.894, just shy of the 107.000 level from October 3 that was the highest since late 2022.
    *USDJPY is holding the 150.00 level, continuing to test the MoF after finance minister Suzuki warned that authorities were closely watching currency moves “with a sense of urgency.”
    *EURUSD lost ground on the ECB’s stance, trading at 1.0544, though inside the day’s 1.0574 to 1.0524 range.
    *USDCAD remains above at 1.3810 after the BoC’s announcement .
    *GOLD flat but close to 1998 (more than 2-months highs).
    *USOIL recovered to $85 after a fall due to a rise in US crude stockpiles and a climb in the US Dollar.

    Today: US PCE deflator, personal consumption, University of Michigan sentiment (October), Exxon, Chevron earnings.



    Interesting Mover: USDCHF broke descending channel and extends higher for a 4th day in a row.

    Market Update – October 30.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Stock markets struggled overnight. Mainland China bourses found buyers, but JPN225 and ASX declined, as markets watched developments in the Middle East. Risk sentiment improved during the start of the week as Israel seemed to be moving with more caution than anticipated, which helped to dampen concern about a widening of the conflict. Stock futures are higher across Europe and the US and the 10-year treasury yield has lifted 2.6 bp to 4.86%, with oil and gold also declining as haven flows ease. Treasuries were boosted also after the slowing in the PCE deflators underpinned expectations the FOMC is on hold. Short covering and a flight to safety extended the more bullish tone as Israel began its ground assault on Gaza.



    *Stock markets slightly higher today after Wall Street saw the US30 drop -1.12% with a hefty -6.7% plunge in the energy complex. The US500 declined another -0.48%, with the latter now in correction territory, -10.3% below the July 31 peak. The US100 bounced 0.38%. For the 5 days, the US30, US500, and US100 are down -2.14%, -2.53%, and -2.62%, respectively.
    *Morgan Stanley’s Wilson: ‘‘Chances of a fourth-quarter rally have fallen considerably”,“Narrowing breadth, cautious factor leadership, falling earnings revisions and fading consumer and business confidence tell a different story than the consensus, which sees a rally into year-end.”
    *Amazon’s pop by 6.8% and Intel’s jump by 9.3% helped soften the blows from big drops in Alphabet, Meta, and Tesla. Ford stumbled 12.2%.
    *JGB yields climbed to fresh 10-year peaks today & USDJPY corrected to 149.22, as investors weighed the chances of a possible policy tweak in the BOJ’s monetary policy decision tomorrow. BOJ is widely expected to keep its short-term rate target at -0.1% and that target for long-term rates around 0% as set under its YCC policy.
    *USDIndex is at 106.50, down on Friday’s close, but within the previous day’s range.
    *GOLD spiked to $2006.40 on the escalation of the war. Currently settled lower at $1990. It’s likely to continue benefiting should tensions increase, alongside the Swiss franc and short-dated US government bonds.
    *USOIL lower at $83.70.

    Today: Central bank meetings: FED, BOE and BOJ. Earnings: Apple, Airbnb, McDonald’s, Moderna and Eli Lilly & Co among the many reporting this week.

    Interesting Mover: USDCHF broke descending channel and extends higher for a 4th day in a row.

    Market Update – October 31 – Stocks Down & Yen plummets.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Asian stock markets traded mixed, with China bourses underperforming after weaker than expected PMI reports that signal ongoing weakness, especially in the manufacturing sector. Treasuries meanwhile found buyers and the US 10-year rate is down -5.7 bp at 4.84%, while the 10-year Bund yield has dropped -3.3 bp to 2.79%. Stock futures are higher across Europe, but down in the US.



    *China October PMIs missed expectations as factory orders contracts – CSI300 at -0.31%.
    *USDJPY jumped to 150.24, after the Yen fell to 2-month lows as the BOJ made only minor changes to its policy settings, disappointing some in the market who had expected more. The central bank is keeping its cap on long-term yields at 1%, leaving its negative interest rate untouched and adding flexibility to its yield curve control.
    *Financial stocks were the biggest winners, insurance and banking indexes rallying more than 2% each to lead gains among the 33 industry sectors. Higher long-term yields and a steeper yield curve improve the outlook for returns from lending and investing.
    *Earnings beats from McDonald’s and SoFi provided support ahead of Apple and other key earnings this week.

    Market Update – November 06 – The aftermaths of cooler jobs continue.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Last week’s market reactions underscore the risks associated with central banks discussing data dependence without clarifying their medium-term framework or how they expect policy to impact the real economy.

    Both stocks and bonds experienced rallies, boosted by the Treasury’s smaller-than-anticipated increase in longer-term debt auctions. However, Treasury yields dove with an eye-popping speed. The move underpinned a massive rally. The spectacular drop in rates last week saw the 2- and 10-year maturities recover a lot of their losses in October. The catalysts for the reversal were the FOMC’s less than hawkish stance, the cooler jobs report, and the moderation in Treasury supply increases. Geopolitical risks added a haven bid too.



    *FT reported: The markets are wrong to assume an economic slowdown and the peak of interest rates. “Higher for longer” for interest rates was always more of a media catchphrase than policy analysis. However, the Powell Federal Reserve may not start to reverse policy errors with rate cuts before the middle of next year, and reacting forcefully to every single data release between now and then is going to be exhausting.
    *USDIndex tanked, however, falling to a low of 104.84 from the early high of 106.95.
    *USDJPY at 149.50. BOJ Ueda indicated that policymakers might not have sufficient data by year-end to end negative interest rates, as they continue to monitor the possibility of a wage-inflation cycle.
    *Stocks: Wall Street exploded higher on the drop in rates. For the week, the US100 was up 6.6%, with the US500 having its best week since November 2022. The US30 posted a 5.85%, gain, its best week since October 2022. The VIX was off -4.8% to 14.91. Asian equities rose today after weaker than expected US jobs data released last week eased concerns over rising interest rates.
    *Ryanair sees record annual profit, first regular dividend as fares soar
    *Shares in Chinese brokerages jumped after state media reported that the country’s securities regulator would support buyouts and mergers in the financial sector to help create investment banks.
    *Gold and Oil were scuttled too. Gold fell to $ 1992.5 per oz, down from $2004.10, but was as soft as $1983.31. USOIL dropped to $80.10 per barrel, but finished with a -1.95% loss at $80.85 after trading as high as $83.6 overnight. Currently settled at $80.85.

    Today: EU, France, Germany, Japan: S&P Global October services PMI, UK October construction PMI. Earnings: BioNTech Q3, Itochu H1, Ryanair H1.



    Interesting Mover: ETHUSD (+3%) jumped this morning breaking 2-week range and extending to $1910 area.

    Market Update – November 09.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    It was another mixed day in the markets as players awaited fresh directional signals, including comments from Chair Powell later today. However, a new narrative is starting to build, one of slowing growth, with a recessionary tilt in Europe. The ongoing chant from the FOMC and ECB and BoE officials that more tightening might be necessary is adding to the angst over economic growth, alongside an effort to push back against speculation of early rate cuts, although it is increasingly clear that in the central scenario rates have peaked.

    Concurrently, investors have been encouraged by this week’s auctions, that they have found buyers. And demand for higher yields have helped underscore a curve flattening trade with longer dated Treasuries outperforming. Falling Treasury yields helped launch an explosive rebound in stocks and lifted US government bonds from 16-year lows!



    *Asian stock markets lower on mixed signals of peak US rates and weak Chinese economy.
    *China slipped back into consumer price index deflation in October, as data released showed persistently weak demand in the economy. The inflation data is likely to reinforce the weaker-than-expected PMI figures last week.
    *10-year Treasury yield falls below 4.5%.
    *USDIndex holds gains above 105. EURUSD under pressure as Eurozone retail sales declined.
    *Stocks: The US100 and US500 benefited further from the drop in yields. The US100 posted a marginal 0.08% gain, with the US500 up 0.10%. But those were sufficient to give the US100 a 9th straight winning session, and an 8th straight for the S&P. The Dow dipped -0.12%.
    *SoftBank adds to shareholder pain with unexpected $6bn loss.
    *UK chip designer Arm’s shares fall after disappointing revenue forecast.
    *Disney tops profit estimates.
    *AstraZeneca raises yearly guidance amid strong sales of oncology treatments.
    *Oil slipped to $74.88, but is currently in correction mode. Further pressure was added after the EIA issued the new outlook after Saudi Arabia and Russia extended voluntary production cuts of 1.3 million barrels per day through December as demand concerns weigh. US total petroleum consumption is now expected to fall by 300,000 bpd to 20.1 million bpd this year, compared with an estimated gain of 100,000 bpd in the October forecast.
    *Gold at $1949.
    *Bitcoin trades past $36,500 on possible ETF investment approval.
    *Today: BOE chief economist Huw Pill, Fed Chair Jerome Powell & Fed President Raphael Bostic and Richmond speeches & US initial jobless claims.
