    Market Update – March 14.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    The Ukraine war remains in focus, but the FOMC announcement and the BoE decision are also coming into view. Russia’s attack on Ukraine seemed to intensify over the weekend, with bombs falling near the Polish border. US reports that Russia has asked China for military assistance also flagged the risk of a further escalation of the war, but at the same time there were some hopes of diplomatic progress ahead of fresh talks.

    * USD (USDIndex 99.05) strong, helped by speculation that the spike in commodity prices will push the FOMC into an aggressive tightening cycle.
    * US Yields 10-yr jumped 4.6 bp to 2.037%, amid speculation that the spike in commodity prices will push the Fed into an aggressive rate hike cycle. The June 10-year Bund future is slightly lower, but outperforming versus US futures, which have sold off.
    * Equities – GER30 and UK100 are up 1.1% and 0.6% respectively, with US futures also higher. USA100 closed with a -0.95% decline, while the USA500 and Dow were down -0.43% and -0.34%, respectively. Nike and Apple weighed on the blue chips, while all 11 S&P sectors were in the red. Communications services and technology lagged, both down 1.8%, while utilities outperformed, about 0.4% lower.
    * Reuters: China, the world’s largest crude oil importer and second largest consumer after the United States, is seeing a surge in COVID-19 cases, as the highly transmissible Omicron variant spreads to more cities, triggering outbreaks from Shanghai to Shenzhen.
    * USOil – shed to $103.50 and consolidating as diplomatic efforts to end the war in Ukraine geared up and markets braced for higher US interest rates.
    * Gold – lower at $1971 ahead of FED.
    * FX markets – EURUSD is consolidating above the 1.09 mark amid lingering hopes that diplomatic efforts can prevent a further escalation of the war in Ukraine, USDJPY rising to levels last seen in 2017, with the pair currently trading at 117.83 and Cable languishes at 1.3018. The Yen struggled, and even more so AUD overnight.

    Fed policy outlook: the FOMC meets (Tuesday, Wednesday) and this will be an important meeting, even though it will be overshadowed by the Ukraine war and the extreme volatile and uncertainties in the markets. What the latter have done, however, is temper any potential aggressive action from the Fed and other central banks as policymakers look to address decades high, if not record inflation, while not driving growth into the ground. Along with the universally expected 25 bp hike, versus the 50 bps or even 75 bp a few weeks ago, new quarterly projections will also be released. These forecasts will be subject to tremendous uncertainty, but we see big downward revisions to 2022 GDP growth and huge upside boosts to PCE chain prices estimates.

    Today – The FOMC announcement on Wednesday is already casting its shadow. The BoE is due Thursday and also expected to hike rates again, after the better-than-expected GDP report from last week and with officials noting upside surprises in wage growth. Official UK labour market data is due tomorrow, but for today, the European calendar is relatively quiet.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) Palladium (-6.33%) Dipped to 2578. MAs pointing down, MACD signal line & histogram hold well above 0 line, RSI 23 & falling, all implying negative bias.

    Market Update – March 15.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Markets are pricing in aggressive Fed moves and while the Treasury rate managed to correct slightly from yesterday’s highs, rates across Asia moved higher, with Japan’s up 1.6 bp and China’s 3.9 bp, while Australia’s was up 6.5 bp.. Stock markets meanwhile were mostly lower after a largely weaker close on Wall Street. Bond markets were under pressure across the Asia Pacific region with inflation risks and the Fed outlook in focus. China’s PBOC failed to cut the MLF interest rate as many had expected and the RBA minutes also flagged heightened uncertainty on the inflation outlook, even as the bank vowed to remain patient on rates for now. Growth data out of China may have been stronger than anticipated, but the country’s Covid policy, which has now shut down the important tech hub of Shenzhen, has investors spooked.

    * USD (USDIndex under the 99 mark).
    * US Yields US 10-year rate has corrected -1.2 bp to 2.12%.
    * Equities – Hang Seng and CSI 300 lost a further -5.7% and -4.2% respectively. The ASX was down -0.7% at the close. The USA100 slumped -2.04%, with the USA500 falling -0.74%, and the USA30 unchanged.
    * USOil – shed to $95.13 as ceasefire talks between Russia and Ukraine eased fears of further supply disruptions and surging COVID-19 cases in China fuelled concerns about slower demand.
    * Gold – lower at $1929 on higher yields ahead of Fed meeting.
    * FX markets – USDJPY continues to rise and is now at 118.35. AUD and NZD underperformed. EURUSD retests 1.1020, GBPUSD holds below 1.3050.

    European Open: The June 10-year Bund future is up 11 ticks, Treasury futures are also finding buyers. Some consolidation then after the sharp sell off in EGBs yesterday, with safe haven flows picking up again, and GER30 and FTSE 100 futures posting losses of -0.8% and -0.94% respectively. Concern that overly aggressive central bank moves could stifle growth has picked up again and hopes of a quick breakthrough in Ukraine-Russian peace talks were also disappointed yesterday. There was some positive noise on talks between the US and China, but at the same time there are some suggestions China is indeed mulling economic and military assistance to Russia.

    Today – For data German ZEW and US February PPI are due.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) USOIL (-5.82%) Dipped to 95.13. MAs pointing down, MACD signal line & histogram extend below 0, RSI 30 & falling, all implying negative bias.

    Market Update – March 16 – FOMC Rate Hike Day.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    There was a bounce in US Equities following a collapse in the Oil price to under $100 as Zelenskiy suggests Ukraine will not seek NATO membership & talks with Russia are more “realistic”. Putin’s shelling and grind forward continues. US warns-off any sanction busting Chinese move, more sanctions from the West on Russian property, goods and people, Russia sanctions Biden & Clinton as it prepares for a massive default. Big rally in China shares following Covid infection spike collapse on Monday and a return of risk appetite.

    * USD (USDIndex 98.80). Struggling to hold 99.00 so far this week, and last weeks 99.40 high.
    * US Yields 10-yr up to 2.16% on close – up to 2.18% now.
    * Equities – USA500 +89.34 (+2.14%) 4262. US500 FUTS higher at 4287 now. Airlines rallied over +9%, Exxon & Chevron lost -5.0% as oil prices collapsed.

    * FX markets – EURUSD back to 1.0960, USDJPY holds over 118.00 & multiple year highs at 118.40 and Cable tested to the key 1.3000 yesterday, back to 1.3050 now.

    European Open: The June 10-year Bund future is down 82 ticks, underperforming versus US futures. Yields corrected yesterday amid a sharp correction in oil prices and as demand concerns tempered supply disruptions. With the FOMC announcement coming into view, bonds are under pressure again, while DAX and FTSE 100 futures are up 2% and 1.3% respectively. China vowed to support markets and the economy, which helped to revive risk appetite. Dollar and Yen retreated as safe-haven demand faded and oil prices stabilized after dropping sharply in recent sessions.

    Today – US Retail Sales, Export/Import Prices & Canadian CPI, FOMC Policy Announcement & Powell Press Conference. Also Weekly Oil Inventories & ECB’s Elderson & Panetta.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) AUDJPY (+0.43%) Rallied from 84.60 lows yesterday to over 85.50 now. Friday’s high was 85.88. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram hold over 0 line, RSI 66 & rising, H1 ATR 0.1300, Daily ATR 0.9300.

    Market Update – March 17 – Hawkish & Faster Moving FED.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    The FOMC raised rates as expected by 25bps AND also announced a further six hikes in 2022 and four in 2023 (which was not necessarily expected). Chair Powell’s press conference soothed the initial hawkish reaction. US stocks leapt higher (NASDAQ +3.77%) USD cooled and Yields moved up. Canada Inflation was hotter than expected, US Retail Sales softer and NZD GDP missed significantly. Overnight AUD Jobs & CHF trade balance both beat significantly. Asian stocks rallied (Nikkei +3%) led by China’s continued bounce back. Biden called Putin a “war criminal”, Russia & Ukraine still talking, China & Israel tout mediator credentials.

    BoE Preview: Recent comments suggest that the central bank remains on course to lift the Bank Rate by another 25 bp to 0.75%. The latest BoE survey flagged upside surprises on wage growth and with energy bills going through the roof second round effects from the inflation overshoot are already materialising. Against that background, this is unlikely to be the latest rate hike – at least in the central scenario. Like the ECB, the BoE will have to keep some degree of flexibility on policy options as stagflation risks are mounting, but with the Fed flagging a series of rate hikes this year, and even the ECB on course to normalise policy, the BoE has more cover to continue to tighten policy.

    * USD (USDIndex 98.28). Tested 99.00 briefly on FED down after Powell.
    * US Yields 10-yr up to 2.188% on close – down to 2.15% now.
    * Equities – USA500 +95.41 (+2.24%) 4357. US500 FUTS flat at 4347 now. Tech rallied FB +6%, NFLX & TSLA +4.78%, Starbucks + 5.16%.
    * USOil – Found support at $93.00 yesterday. $96.40 now.
    * Gold – Down to test $1900 yesterday, trades at $1934 now.
    * Bitcoin tested over $41,000 yesterday, trades at $40,600 now.
    * FX markets – EURUSD back to 1.1035, USDJPY holds over 118.00 & 5-year highs at 118.75 and Cable tested to the key 1.3000 yesterday, back to 1.3050 now.1

    European Open: The June 10-year Bund future is up 26 ticks, U.S. futures are also backing up from yesterday’s lows. Yields have started to move up from overnight lows, but for now it seems bonds are set for a positive start, despite the Fed decision yesterday. Still, markets were pretty much prepared and took solace in the Fed’s apparent confidence that the economy can withstand the withdrawal of support. Coupled with China’s promise to support markets and the economy that is bolstering stock markets confidence, with DAX and FTSE 100 futures up 0.4% and 0.2% at the moment. There doesn’t seem to be progress in Russia-Ukraine talks though, which will likely keep a lid on indexes, that already jumped higher yesterday. Investors may also be cautious ahead of today’s BoE announcement.

    Today – EZ CPI, US Weekly Claims, Ind. Prod., Japanese CPI, BoE & CBRT Policy Announcements, Speeches from ECB’s Lagarde, Lane & Schnabel.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) AUDCHF (+0.43%) Rally continues big move yesterday to from .0.6730 lows Tuesday to over 0.6885 now. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram hold over 0 line, RSI 69 & rising, H1 ATR 0.00162, Daily ATR 0.0071.

    Market Update – March 18 – BOE move, BOJ stay put – Stocks, Yields & Oil bounce.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    The BOE raised rates as expected by 25 bps to 0.75% but were less clear about next steps, strong US data (Claims, Housing & Phily Fed Index) helped US stocks (+1.25) to close higher (best 3-day gain since 2020) again as the USD cooled and Yields & Oil rallied (no immediate breakthrough in ceasefire talks). Overnight No change from BOJ but JPY Inflation finally perking up. Asian stocks positive (Nikkei +0.65%). Japan & Australia added sanctions, Biden to call Xi, Putin talked to Erdogan, Blinkin said “war crimes have been committed in Ukraine”.

    * USD (USDIndex 98.12). Tested to 97.70 yesterday as weekly decline continues.
    *US Yields 10-yr up to 2.192% on close – down to 2.178% now.
    *Equities – USA500 +53.8 (+1.23%) and over 4400 to 4411. US500 FUTS flat at 4385 now. Tech & Fin rallied (FB & AMZN +2.0%, TSLA +3.73%, Occidental + 9.47%) and Berkshire Hathaway A-Shares breached $500,000 each!
    *USOil – Rallied back over $100.00 yesterday. to test $104.80 (200HR MA) now.
    *Gold – rallied to test $1950 yesterday, from Wednesdays flirt with $1900, trades at $1934 now.
    *Bitcoin holds the break of $40,000 yesterday, trades at $40,600 now.
    *FX markets – EURUSD back to 1.1078, unable to hold breach of 1.1100, USDJPY testing 119.00 & new 5-year highs at 118.85 and Cable having spiked over 1.3200 pre- BOE yesterday back to 1.3150 now, from 1.3100.

    European Open: The June 10-year Bund future is down -5 ticks, while US futures are posting slight gains. Gilts benefited yesterday from the BOE’s “dovish-hike”, but after the initial move lower in yields, we could see some consolidation today. The FTSE 100 futures is posting modest gains, after local markets got a boost from a drop in Sterling yesterday. The DAX is fractionally lower this morning as stagflation concerns make a come back.

    Today – US Existing Home Sales, CBR Policy Announcements, Quad Witching, Speeches from Fed’s Barkin, Bowman & Evans. Call between US President Biden and Chinese President Xi.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) AUDJPY (+0.52%) Rally continues after another big move yesterday from 84.60 lows Tuesday to test 88.00 now. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram strong but cooling, RSI 73, OB but rising, H1 ATR 0.150, Daily ATR 0.980.

    Market Update – March 18 – BOE move, BOJ stay put – Stocks, Yields & Oil bounce.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    Risk aversion continues to dominate as Russia’s attack intensifies and hopes of resolution through talks fade. Stagflation concerns and the longer term impact on the recovery are keeping a lid on stock markets and complicating the outlook for central banks. The BoE managed to pull off a “dovish rate hike” last week, China’s central bank kept lending rate unchanged in line with expectations, while SNB is expected to keep policy settings on hold this week. At the same time, China’s lockdown in the tech hub of Shenzhen threatens to lead to ongoing delays in long awaited deliveries. German PPI inflation hit 25.9% y/y in February – sharp rise in cost pressures even before the impact of the Ukraine war had really taken hold. Energy price inflation hit 68.0% y/y. No surprise that many at the ECB are getting nervous, especially as the risk of rising wage pressures is mounting.

    * USD steady (USDIndex 98.30)
    * Equities – After PBOC, Asian shares were down. ASX was down -0.2% at the close, while Hang Seng and CSI 300 are currently posting losses of -0.9% and -0.2% respectively. US futures are also in the red, after the strongest week since November 2020. GER40 and UK100 futures are down -0.2% and -0.02% respectively.
    * USOil – Rallied to $108.80 – attacks by Iran-backed rebels on energy facilities in Saudi Arabia pushed up prices.
    * Gold – remains under pressure at $1925.
    * Bitcoin holds the break of $40,000 yesterday, trades at $41,055 now.
    * FX markets – EURUSD back to 1.1050, unable to hold breach of 1.1100, USDJPY at 119.20 and Cable pullback to 1.3155.

    Today – There are a number of ECB and BoE speakers scheduled this week that could attract attention in nervous markets. PMI reports in particular will be in focus in light of Ukraine tensions and the pick up in energy prices.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) USOIL (+4.03%) Rally continues to 109.36, reversing 50% of March losses. Fast MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram strong, RSI 79 and rising, H1 ATR 0.87, Daily ATR 9.25.

    Market Update – March 22 – Rate-hike bets weigh.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    The surge in Treasury yields was the story of Monday’s trading after Fed Chair Powell underscored the hawkish stance coming out of the FOMC meeting. The reaction in bonds showed a lot of jitters over the outlook and the ability of the Fed to achieve a soft landing. The US curve flattened markedly yesterday as the short end underperformed amid concern the Fed will hike rates aggressively. Stock market sentiment still looked much better across Asia than in Europe and even the US. The US Dollar was sought as oil prices lifted with WTI currently trading at $114.90. Energy prices are on the rise again and central banks are set to rein in stimulus with ECB’s Rehn yesterday confirming that in the central scenario the ECB is eyeing a lift off in rates for Q4 or maybe Q1 next year. Wall Street was depressed in choppy action, correcting from the prior week’s healthy gains as the FOMC looks to rein in demand to help address the inflation pop, which now looks to be longer lasting and more widespread due to the supply shock from the Ukraine war.

    * USD up (USDIndex 98.94).
    * 10-year Treasury rate is up 4.7 bp, the 2-year 7.0 bp, June 10-year Bund future is down 70 ticks, US futures are down -12 ticks. The JGB rate has lifted 1.1 bp and rates in Australia and New Zealand jumped 14.0 bp and 13.0 bp respectively in catch up trade.
    * Equities – Nikkei lifted 1.5%, ASX lifted 0.86%, and the Hang Seng jumped 2.1%, even as US futures declined. Hong Kong was boosted by Alibaba Group Holding Ltd’s $25 bln share buyback program and by contrast, the CSI 300 is currently slightly in the red. The USA30 slid -0.58%, with the USA100 sliding -0.4%, while the USA500 was off -0.04%.
    * USOil – renewed rise in oil prices, to $112.22 – currently lower to 108.68.
    * Gold – remains under pressure at $1934.
    * Bitcoin breaches the $43,400, trades at $42,185 now.
    * FX markets – EURUSD dips to 1.0960, USDJPY climbed to 120.48 and Cable rallied to 1.3136.

    Today – UK public finance data and even more so the presentation of the budget will be of interest also for markets. The calendar today has Eurozone current account data, which is unlikely to attract too much attention.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) BTCUSD (+2.63%) Rally continues to 43,437, breaking the top of March 18. Fast MAs flattened along with RSI (59) but MACD signal line & histogram remain strong, implying near term pullback. H1 ATR 479.989, Daily ATR 2405.790.

    Market Update – March 23 – “Inflation leads”.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    European bond markets have sold off today following, Bund future is down -15 ticks, US futures are also lower, with yields extending the March spike across the globe. Curves shifted higher pretty much across the board, but with the short end underperforming slightly amid lingering stagflation concerns. UK’s inflation today hit 6.2% y/y (30-year highs) in February. The RPI – still an important measure for wage negotiations – stood at 8.3% y/y in February and coupled with an increasingly tight labour market the risk of second round inflation effects clearly are rising, as is the pressure on the government to do something to ease the jump in the cost of living.

    Ukraine developments aside, fiscal responses to the jump in energy prices also are in focus this week, as governments discuss ways to cushion the impact and the UK budget is set to be unveiled today.

    Companies are not only facing a sharp rise in energy costs, but also supply chain disruptions as the Ukraine war puts a stop to deliveries of intermediate goods that have disrupted German car production in particular. At the same time, China’s lockdown in the tech-hub of Shenzen threatens to lead to ongoing delays in long awaited deliveries.

    * USD is ranging(USDIndex 98.50).
    * 10-year Treasury has lifted 1.3 bp to 2.395% overnight.
    * Equities – Stock markets remained supported across Asia, and GER40 and UK100 futures are posting gains of 0.8% and 0.7% respectively, with US futures also higher, but underperforming.Wall Street continued to see the glass half full and rallied, led by the USA100 1.95% pop, with the USA500 up 1.13% and the USA30 0.74% higher. Nikkei has rallied another 3%.
    * USOil – firm above the $105 per barrel mark and Ukraine developments remain in focus, although stock markets still seem back in demand.
    * Gold – remains under pressure at $1919.
    * Bitcoin pullback to the $41,700.
    * FX markets – EURUSD steady at 1.1020, USDJPY extends to 121.40 and Cable crossed 20-DMA , currently at 1.3260.

    Today – Chancellor Sunak will present his spring budget today amid mounting pressure that he ditches the planned rise in national insurance contributions.Looking ahead PMI reports (Thursday) in particular will be in focus in the light of Ukraine tensions and the pick up in energy prices.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) AUDUSD (+0.23%) Rallied to 0.7476. Fast MAs flattened along with RSI (59) while MACD histogram turn below signal line, implying near term pullback/consolidation. H1 ATR 0.0012, Daily ATR 0.0084.

    Market Update – March 24 – Stocks come back?

    Treasuries recovered yesterday after some hefty losses in recent sessions pushed some rates up to the cheapest levels since May 2019. Reports of big inflows into Treasuries from quarterly portfolio rebalancing supported the rally, as did a stellar 20-year sale. And buying begot more buying to leave rates measurably lower.

    Today there is a somewhat different picture than yesterday, as bonds rallied across the board and stocks traded mixed. Japanese markets corrected some of this week’s stellar gains after the minutes to the latest BoJ meeting showed officials flagging the risk of overshooting inflation. Oil prices are consolidating at high levels, as the Ukraine war drags on. For Europe, Putin’s demand that future gas deliveries should be paid in rubles raised the risk of imminent embargoes, as it may force the west to break its own sanctions. Energy prices will remain high then, putting pressure on governments to ease the burden for consumers and complicating the outlook for central banks. The UK budget was based on a sharply lower growth projection and a markedly higher inflation forecast and more revisions could well be necessary.

    * USD up (USDIndex 98.88).
    * 10-year Bund future is slightly higher, while the Treasury future is down 8 ticks, and in cash markets the US 10-year rate has lifted 4.7 bps to 2.339%.
    * Equities – Tencent Holdings Ltd reported its slowest pace of quarterly growth on record, which kept a lid on the Hang Seng. In the ASX there were gains for miners and others benefiting from stronger commodity prices. DAX and FTSE 100 futures up 0.1% and a 0.5% rise in the NASDAQ is leading US futures higher.
    * USOil – consolidated at high levels and USOIL is now at $114.89 after posting a high at 116.62.
    * Gold – ranging at $1943.
    * Bitcoin up, retesting the $43,500 resistance level again.
    * FX markets – EURUSD down to 1.0974, USDJPY extends to 121.73 and Cable steady at yesterday’s low, at 1.3179.

    Today – SNB and Norges Bank are set to announce policy today, with the latter seen delivering another rate hike. Data releases include preliminary PMI reports for the Eurozone, UK and US, along with Durable goods.

    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) USDCHF (+0.32%) Rebounded to 0.9344. Fast MAs aligned higher, RSI at 60 and Stochastic at OB, while MACD remains negative. H1 ATR 0.00088, Daily ATR 0.00658.

    Market Update – March 28 – Yen, Oil & Stocks Dive as BOJ Remains “Ultra Loose”.


    Trading Leveraged Products is risky

    BOJ announced unlimited bond buying policy, but yields still rose and YEN crashed, pulling down Asian stock & Oil markets, also hit by a strict 11-day lockdown in Shanghai (27 mill.). The US Treasury 5-to-30-yr yield curve has inverted for the first time since 2006, history suggests slowdown & possible recession. US 10-yr back over 2.5%. USD bid. APPLE talks of long-term subscription model moving away from selling products, as it reduces supply of iPhone SE & AirPods.

    Biden & Blinkin “clarify” – “Putin cannot remain in power” comments, Zelensky talks of neutrality but insists on geographic integrity, walking back earlier comments. Russian & Ukrainian negotiators to meet in Istanbul later. Israel hosts 4-Arab states & Blinkin, NK tests more ICBM’s. Japan tightens FX laws and Crypto loopholes to sanction Russia.

    Week Ahead – US NFP (380k), US, UK and Canada GDP and many central bankers’ speeches.

    * USD (USDIndex 99.14). closed Friday 98.85. Friday’s US data weak (Pending Home Sales at 2-yr low & Consumer Sentiment at 11-yr low)
    * US Yields 10-yr up to 2.53% currently & new 3-yr highs, from Friday’s close 2.492%
    Equities – USA500 +22.90 (+0.51%) 4543. US500 FUTS now at 4519 now. (Closed up +1.8% last week – Nasdaq best performer last week +2.0%.
    * USOil – Fell to start the new week to $108.94 now – from Friday’s close at $112.50
    * Gold – slipped to $1935 now, from Fridays close at $1955.
    * Bitcoin breaks up 4.4% from the 42k-45K range to $46,800 now.
    * FX markets – EURUSD back to test 1.0950, unable to hold breach of 1.1000, USDJPY over 123.00 & new 7-year highs and Cable back to 1.3130 now, from over 1.3200 on Friday.

    European Open-The June 10-year Bund future is down -78 ticks at 157.87, underperforming versus Treasuries. A lockdown in Shanghai weighed on the CSI overnight and left oil prices lower, while the Ukraine war’s drag on Europe’s energy costs is set to remain extremely high, with the resulting spike in the cost of living hitting consumers and consumption trends in many countries. In the UK that has already become apparent and last week’s budget offered not enough relief to soothe concerns. DAX and FTSE 100 are up 0.056% and 0.054% respectively at the moment. A cautious start for stocks then into a data heavy week that brings the final round of Eurozone confidence numbers for March and preliminary inflation reports that are likely to look ugly.

    Today – ASEAN summit, US 2yr and 5yr supply, Trade Goods Balance & US Inventories. Speech from BoE Governor Bailey.



    Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) AUDJPY (-0.98%) Big move against JPY today, continues trend of weaker YEN. MAs aligned higher, MACD signal line & histogram strong but cooling, RSI 71, OB but rising, H1 ATR 0.281, Daily ATR 1.120.
