Re: hotforex.com - Market analysis and news.

Date : 13th May 2019.

Events to Look Out for Next Week.


https://bit.ly/2JdihZG

Markets could keep being restive as the trade war escalates, with concerns rising regarding a response from China. Meanwhile, the main focus should turn to the US as the week ahead includes a heavy slate of economic reports that will include important updates on consumption, inventories, factory output, sentiment, and the housing sector.

* Tuesday – 14 May 2019

* Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The preliminary German HICP inflation for April was higher than initially expected, at 2.1% y/y. However the final reading is expected to fall back to 1.7% y/y.

* Average Earnings (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Average Earnings excluding bonus for March is expected to hold at 3.4%. The ILO unemployment rate (3-month) is expected to have remained at 3.9%.

* ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for May is expected to decline to 1.0 compared to 4.5 last month.

* Wednesday – 15 May 2019

* Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 06:00) – German Preliminary Q1 results are expected to come in stronger than expected at 0.3%, after confirmed at 0.0% q/q for Q4 2018. Eurozone prelim. Q1 GDP growth expected to be confirmed at 0.4% q/q.

* Retail Sales and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – We expect readings of 0.2% for April retail sales and 0.7% for ex-auto sales, following a 1.6% increase for the March headline and a 1.2% increase ex-autos. Unit vehicle sales slowed in April, and gasoline prices should continue to boost retail activity given an estimated 5.5% increase in the CPI for gasoline.

* Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The Canadian CPI is expected to slip to 0.3% from the 0.7% reading the past 2 months.

* Thursday – 16 May 2019

* Employment Data (AUD, GMT 01:30) – Australian labour market data is expected to deteriorate, as the unemployment rate expected to increase to 5.1% in April from 5.0% last month, while employment is anticipated at 14K from 25.7K in March.

* Housing Data (USD, GMT 12:30) – Both Building Permits and Housing Starts should jump in April, to a 1.215 mln pace and to 1.298 mln respectively, after a 0.3% and 0.2% decline seen in March. Overall, a stronger trajectory is expected for starts with a positive but slower pace for permits.

* Friday – 17 May 2019

* Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI for April is expected to slow down slightly, at 0.7% from 1% last month. However, the overall picture remains largely unchanged, with headline inflation remaining modest, but underlying inflation starting to firm. No reason then for the ECB to add additional stimulus measures to an already very accommodative policy stance, and “low for longer” remains the message not just from the ECB.

* Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index (USD, GMT 14:00) – The preliminary May Michigan sentiment reading is forecast at 97.7, up from the final April sentiment at 97.2.

Date : 14th May 2019.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 14th May 2019.


https://bit.ly/2VAY4DY

FX News Today

* The stock sell off that was triggered by new US tariffs and China’s retaliation measures announced yesterday eased somewhat during the Asian session after some conciliatory comments from US President Trump and likely also thanks to suspected buying of state backed players in China.

* The Yen declined after Trump said he will meet China’s Xi Jinping at next months G20 summit.

* Topix and Nikkei are still down -0.70% and -0.81%.

* The US Trade Representative’s office released a list of about USD 300 bln worth of Chinese goods that Trump also threatened to hit with a 25% tariff.

* European futures are moving higher in tandem with US futures ahead of the opening.

* The WTI future meanwhile is trading at USD 61.15 per barrel, up from an earlier low of USD 60.73.

* German inflation lifted above 2% limit in April,largely thanks to higher energy prices, as well as the Easter effect.

Charts of the Day

https://bit.ly/2HnWr2s

Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD eased from near 2-week highs of 1.1263, touching 1.1218 lows before steadying. EURUSD is back under its 50-day moving average of 1.1249. Continued uncertainty on the trade front, should keep risk-appetite contained, which could see the Dollar remain firm on a flight to safety trade.

* USDJPY has dropped to 3-plus month lows of 109.09, falling 50 points. Safe-haven Yen buying ratcheted up quickly on the report, while severe risk-off conditions, seeing US equity futures plummet, and Treasury yields slide, has weighed heavily on the pairing. The January 31 low of 108.50 is the next support level.

* USOIL has given back its earlier 2% gains, trading down at $61.20. Overnight gains came following attacks on two Saudi tankers near the Strait of Hormuz, though since then, the ramped up US/China trade war has spooked oil bulls. A slowing of the two-largest economies will likely result in crude demand destruction going forward. Friday’s $60.92 lows is next Support and $60.60 (last night’s low).

Main Macro Events Today

* Average Earnings (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Average Earnings excluding bonus for March is expected to hold at 3.4%. The ILO unemployment rate (3-month) is expected to have remained at 3.9%.

* ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for May is expected to decline to 1.0 compared to 4.5 last month.

Re: hotforex.com - Market analysis and news.

Date : 15th May 2019.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 15th May 2019.


https://bit.ly/2LGiN4B

FX News Today

* Stock markets continued to recover during the Asian session, after a positive close on Wall Street Tuesday. Topix and Nikkei gained 0.41% and 0.45% respectively.

* Volumes were thin indicating that there is not much conviction in the recovery as investors evaluate trade developments.

* Chinese data releases from Industrial output to Retail Sales data and investment all slowed last month and together with the fallout from tariff hikes that saw markets buying into hopes of further stimulus measures in China.

* President Trump overnight called on the Fed to “match” what he said China would do to offset the economic impact of the US tariffs

* US stock futures are also moving higher.

* The AUD was pressured by the weak China data.

* The USOIL struggled with source stories saying the API will report a 8.63 million Dollar increase in US stockpiles and is trading at USD 61.38 per barrel.

* German GDP growth expanded 0.4% q/q in Q1, in line with expectations and coming back from stagnation in the last quarter of 2018. The construction and machinery investment as well as private consumption were the main drivers of growth.

Charts of the Day

https://bit.ly/2JkMkyG

Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD found Support into the 1.1200 level. The pair has mostly been stuck between its 20-day moving average at 1.1200 and its 50-day moving average at 1.1245 since the start of the week. A close above or below these levels may help determine direction for the remainder of the week.

* USDJPY has recovered slightly from earlier lows of 109.45, making its way to 109.67 highs so far. The rally on Wall Street, which has so far wiped out about a third of Monday’s sharp losses has provided some Support, as have steadier Treasury yields which were hammered lower yesterday as well. The uncertainty of the outcome of the US-China trade war however, will likely keep USDJPY upside limited for now.

* GBPUSD is back on a weakening path. A generally firmer dollar has seen Cable lead the way in the latest phase, with the pair printing fresh 2-week lows under 1.2910. This extends the quite-steep decline from the early May peak at 1.3176, which is the loftiest point reached over the last six weeks. As the risk of a disorderly no-deal Brexit remains a possibility, if not a probability and as the pair is a sharp decline for 8th day is a row, bearish outlook looks to hold strongly. Intraday, Cable has Resistance at 1.2928-1.1235 and Support at 1.2860 on the break of 1.2900 level.

Main Macro Events Today

* Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 06:00) – Eurozone prelim. Q1 GDP growth expected to be confirmed at 0.4% q/q.

* Retail Sales and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – We expect readings of 0.2% for April retail sales and 0.7% for ex-auto sales, following a 1.6% increase for the March headline and a 1.2% increase ex-autos. Unit vehicle sales slowed in April, and gasoline prices should continue to boost retail activity given an estimated 5.5% increase in the CPI for gasoline.


* Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The Canadian CPI is expected to slip to 0.3% from the 0.7% reading the past 2 months.

* There were comments in China state media saying China may have no interest in continuing trade talks with the US for now.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 20th May 2019.


https://bit.ly/2JTRLnJ

* Just as optimism on US growth was returning, while worries over a global slowing were easing, the spectre of a trade war is back on the table to heighten uncertainties once again. Trade will remain a focal point along with the European Parliament elections. Thursday is the most data-heavy day with European PMI releases and the the German IFO survey.

Tuesday – 21 May 2019

* Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30) – The RBA minutes will provide more insight on the views the Australian Central Bank has about the economy. In the past policy review earlier this month, RBA highlighted downside risks to the economy, but disappointed markets by leaving the cash rate on hold ahead of the federal elections.

* Inflation Report Hearings (GBP, GMT N/A) – The BOE Governor and several MPC members testify on inflation and the economic outlook before the Parliament Treasury Committee.

* Retail Sales (NZD, GMT 22:45) – Retail Sales are expected to have slipped to 0.0% for the first Quarter of 2019, from around 1.7% q/q.

* FOMC Meeting Minutes (USD, GMT 18:00) FOMC minutes, detailing the view of each of the Fed Governors and FOMC Members, shed light on their perspectives regarding the future of the US economy. FOMC left policy on hold earlier this month, and it cited solid growth, low headline and core inflation, though Powell said in his presser that the weakness was likely “transitory”.

Thursday – 23 May 2019

* Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 06:00) – German Preliminary Q1 results are expected to remain unchanged, at an annualised rate of 0.6%, and at 0.4% compared to 1.1% last quarter.

* Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 08:00) – Preliminary Manufacturing and Composite PMIs are expected to increase in May, to 48.2 and 51.8 respectively while the Services PMI is forecast at 53.

* German IFO (EUR, GMT 08:00) – German IFO business confidence is expected to hold steady at 99.2, after it unexpectedly declined to 99.2 in the April reading from 99.7 in March.

* European Parliamentary Elections – DAY 1

Friday – 24 May 2019

* Retail Sales and Core (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Following a correction in March, Retail Sales are expected to slip this month by -0.4% m/m from 1.1% m/m.
Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are pegged at -1.8% in April, after a 2.7% figure in March. Transportation orders should be -7.2%. Boeing orders should fall to the lean 28 area from an already-low 44 in March, with a likely hit via problems with the Boeing 737 Max that may have prompted buyers to delay new purchase commitments, while vehicle assemblies are seen steady from a 10.8 mln pace in March.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd May 2019.


https://bit.ly/2Hvki1h

FX News Today

* Comments from Fed’s Bullard that a rate cut could become an “attractive

option” if inflation continues to disappoint added support to bond markets ahead

of the release of the Fed minutes from the May meeting.

* Ahead of today’s Fed minutes, this helped to lift sentiment and underpin

stock market sentiment, which struggled for direction amid conflicting trade

headlines.

* Reports that the US administration is considering blacklisting up to 5

Chinese surveillance firms, including Hikvision added fresh concerns about a

deepening of trade frictions and put pressure on tech stocks.

* The GER30 futures are heading south in tandem with US futures after a

mixed session in Asia, where mainland China bourses underperformed.

* The FTSE 100 future is getting some support from a weaker pound, which

is shedding the gains seen in the wake of May’s latest Brexit deal yesterday

Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD spiked up briefly to 1.1188, just above its 20-day MA, though has

now eased back under 1.1150. The Euro remains in sell the rally mode, given the

Dollar’s yields advantage, and relatively better performing economy. EURUSD has

posted 6-straight sessions of lower daily lows, a bearish signal, and has sights

set on the May 3 bottom of 1.1135, then 2019 lows of 1.1110 seen in late April.

* XAUUSD: Renewed dollar strength, along with the return of risk-taking

conditions has dented gold’s safe-haven appeal. The US easing of restrictions on

Huawei has helped equity sentiment, to the detriment of gold prices. Next support

comes at $1,270 in the near term, then $1,267.30, , the May 2 low, then

$1,258.38, the 200-day MA.

of each of the Fed Governors and FOMC Members, shed light on their perspectives

regarding the future of the US economy. FOMC left policy on hold earlier this

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 24th May 2019.


https://bit.ly/2HSZe3E

FX News Today

* Stock market sentiment stabilised during the Asian session and bargain hunting helped at least Chinese markets to recover slightly.

* Australian Dollar continuing to outperform as markets position for a rate cut from the RBA.

* US President Trump seemed to keep hopes of a trade deal alive, but it is pretty clear that any agreement is still a way off and that will likely keep market volatile for now.

* In Europe investors will be bracing for more political turmoil in the U.K., which also raises the threat of a no-deal Brexit scenario once again, and the fallout from the ongoing European Parliament elections.

* The marked widening of spreads clearly has attracted the attention of ECB officials, which are one again eagerly campaigning for more risk sharing, Eurobonds and a eurozone wide deposit insurance.

* The Oil prices have come slightly back from lows, although at currently $58.65 per barrel, the front end WTI future is heading for a sizeable weekly loss.

Charts of the Day

https://bit.ly/2X1ii6g

Technician’s Corner

* EURUSD spiked up from 2-year lows of 1.1200 into European open. The Euro’s new trend low, along with data misses prompted a quick and sharp short covering driven rally yesterday, which has since seen EURUSD touch highs of 1.1187. With a good number of shorts squeezed out of the market, the pair could enter a consolidative phase into the weekend.

* XAUUSD traded to 1-week highs over $1,287 yesterday, while today despite the small selling pressure it manage to hold above the $1,282 area. Safe-haven buying remains the mover, as global equities remained awash in a sea of red, largely driven by escalating trade war fears. From there, a sharp reversal lower for the Dollar added support to Gold prices. Solid resistance comes at the psychological $1,300 level.

Main Macro Events Today

* Retail Sales and Core (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Following a correction in March, Retail Sales are expected to slip this month by -0.4% m/m from 1.1% m/m.

* Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are pegged at -1.8% in April, after a 2.7% figure in March. Transportation orders should be -7.2%. Boeing orders should fall to the lean 28 area from an already-low 44 in March, with a likely hit via problems with the Boeing 737 Max that may have prompted buyers to delay new purchase commitments, while vehicle assemblies are seen steady from a 10.8 mln pace in March.
