MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 14th November 2017.

FX News Today

European Outlook: Asian stock markets trended lower in sluggish trading, U.S. tax reform developments remain in focus and disappointing manufacturing data out of China did little to boost sentiment. The Nikkei closed little changed, after swinging between gains and losses, the Hang Seng also moved sideways, while CSI 300 and ASX slipped, the latter despite solid business confidence data, which boosted the Aussie dollar and lifted bond yields. After a quiet start to the week, the calendar is heating up today, with German Q3 GDP data and final October inflation numbers at the start of the session, followed by U.K. inflation data, Eurozone production and Q3 GDP. Central bankers are meeting in Frankfurt Fed’s Yellen, ECB’s Draghi, BoE’s Carney, BoJ’s Kuroda are all scheduled to speak this morning.

German HICP inflation was confirmed at 1.5% y/y, as expected, while German Q3 GDP much higher than expected at 0.8% q/q, up from 0.6% q/q and versus a median forecast of 0.6% q/q. A slight slowdown was expected in the quarterly growth rate as production dynamics seemed to have slowed down temporarily, but while there is no official breakdown, the statistics office reported that net exports were a major contributor to growth in the third quarter of the year, so external demand will have compensated for the somewhat more muted performance elsewhere over the summer. The annual rate jumped to 2.8% y/y. That the German economy continues to race ahead is evident in most data and orders suggest a renewed uptick in manufacturing in the last quarter of the year with growth rates exceeding potential going ahead.

Main Macro Events Today
 

  • UK PPI and CPI- Expectations – a fall to 0.3% m/m from 0.4% and a 2.4% y/y from 2.8%.
  • German ZEW – Expectations -a slight improvement in the report up to 20.0 after rising 0.6 points to 17.6 in October. The current situation index should rebound to 88.0 after falling 0.9 points to 87.0 previously.
  • EU GDP and Industrial Production – Expectations – unchanged at 0.6% q/q and 2.5% y/y for Q3 and a decline for industrial production by 0.6% , down to 3.2% y/y for September.

FX News Today

European Outlook: The sell off in global stock markets continued in Asia overnight, With Japan underperforming and the Nikkei closing with a loss of -1.57% as a stronger Yen added to pressure from profit taking as the year end comes into view. Concern over the rout in China’s bond market and the sell off in global commodities underpinned the decline. Oil prices continued to slide overnight, with the front end WTI future currently just barely above the USD 55.0 per barrel level. China’s 10-year yields breached 4% for the first time in more than three years yesterday, and while they are back below the key level amid a wider decline in Asian yields, there are fears more is to come. Yields in the U.S. and Europe also declined yesterday and with stock futures heading south bonds are likely to remain sought. The calendar today has the final reading for French Nov HICP and Eurozone trade data, but the focus will be on U.K. labour market and wage date, with BoE’s Cunliffe stressing late yesterday that the central bank needs clear pay growth evidence before hiking again. There is supply from Germany, which auctions 10-year Bunds after already selling 2-year Schatz notes yesterday and ECB speakers are also on the schedule.

Japan’s GDP slowed to a 1.4% growth pace in Q3, nearly as expected following a revised 2.6% gain in Q2 (was +2.5%). Consumption spending fell 0.5% in Q3 (q/q, sa) amid poor weather conditions, after a revised 0.7% gain in Q2 (was +0.8%). Business spending rose 0.2% in Q3 (q/q, sa) after the 0.5% gain in Q2. Net exports added to GDP. This was the seventh consecutive quarter of GDP growth. The deflator grew 0.1% (y/y, sa) in Q3 following the 0.4% drop in Q2 and 0.8% decline in Q1. There was a flat reading (0.0%) in Q4 of 2016 and a 0.1% dip in Q3 of 2016. Hence, this is the first expansion in the deflator since the 0.4% rise in Q2 of 2016. USDJPY has slipped to 113.22 from 113.40 going into the report’s release.

Main Macro Events Today
 

  • UK Average Earnings – Expectations – a 2.1% y/y rise in the three months to September, and a 2.2% gain in the ex-bonus numbers that would still be lagging some way behind inflation.
  • UK Unemployment Rate – Expectations – unchanged at the cycle low of 4.3% in September.
  • US Retail Sales – Expectations – inching up 0.1% in October, with the ex-auto aggregate rising 0.3% following gains of 1.6% and 1.0%, respectively in September, which were also impacted by the hurricanes. Production and manufacturing data will also be of interest.
  • US CPI – Expectations – rise to 0.1%m/m for October from 0.5% last month and with the core up 0.2% as energy prices moderate.

FX News Today

European Outlook: Stock markets bounced back during the Asian session, and the Nikkei gained nearly 1.5% as technology and telecom stocks led the way and a weaker Yen added support. Profit taking seems to have run its course and traders are leaving concerns about the progress of U.S. tax reforms and China’s slowdown and credit burden behind and refocus on positive corporate earnings. U.K. and U.S. futures are also higher, suggesting that global markets are set to recover some of the losses from earlier in the week. Yields still dropped in Asia overnight and Bund futures climbed higher in after hour trade, with Eurozone peripherals in particular likely to benefit from the return in risk appetite. The EUR is down from recent highs, but still hovering around the 1.18 mark against the Dollar. The local calendar has U.K. retail sales data and the final reading of Eurozone HICP inflation for October.

FX Action: USDJPY has traded firmer so far today, rising concomitantly with stock markets in Asia. U.S. equity index futures are also up after the USA500 posted its biggest daily loss yesterday in two months. The yen has been correlating inversely with global stock markets this week, as it is apt to do during phases of pronounced swings in investor risk appetite. The weakness in the currency today has in turn injected extra buoyancy into Japanese stock markets, with the Topix index outperforming most of its regional peers with a gain of just over 1%. News that two U.S. senators (Ron Johnson and Susan Collins) have publicly criticised the tax reform bill may limit the rebound potential of stock markets, at least on Wall Street.

Main Macro Events Today
 

  • UK Retail Sales – Expectations – pick up to 0.1% for October, from -0.8% seen in September.
  • EU Final CPI – Expectations – unchanged at 1.4% and core at 0.9%.

  • US Jobless Claims, Production & Philly Fed index – Expectations – Jobless claims expected to dip to 235K, while Phily index expected ay 25.0 from 27.9 seen on October.
  • BoE and FOMC – BoE Governor Carney is due to speak along with MPC members Broadbent, Cunliffe, and Ramsden about economics at various public schools, in Liverpool. FOMC members Kaplan and Brainard are due to give a speech in Houston an d Michigan respectively.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 17th November 2017.

FX News Today

European Outlook: The recovery on global stock markets continued in Asia overnight, with a round of positive earnings from U.S. companies reports and progress on the U.S. tax reform plan underpinning risk appetite. The Hang Seng outperformed with banks underpinned by optimism over new shareholding rules. Elsewhere gains were more muted however, and the Nikkei closed up 0.20%, while U.K. Stock futures are down, and U.S. futures narrowly mixed. Oil prices are slightly higher on the day and the front end WTI future is trading a USD 55.35 per barrel. A more cautious mood then on stock markets going into the European open and long yields declined in Japan and Australia. Bund futures extended losses in after hour trade yesterday, with Gilt under-performing and with BoE’s Carney repeating late yesterday that there will be more rate hikes, if the economy develops along expected lines, Gilts could well continue to underperform. Today’s data calendar has Eurozone BoE and current account data and Bundesbank President Weidmann is scheduled to speak.

U.S. reports: revealed a surprisingly robust round of industrial production figures, with a 0.9% October surge after big upward revisions back through May, alongside a slightly larger than expected November Philly Fed drop to a still-solid 22.7 from 27.9, with a larger ISM-adjusted drop to 56.7 from 59.7. We also saw an unexpected 10k initial claims bounce to 249k in the Veteran’s Day week, though this week kicks-off the period of heightened volatility that extends through the MLK weekend. The October trade price figures proved weaker than expected despite oil import and food export price gains, perhaps partly due to the October bounce in the value of the dollar combined with some unwind of a prior hurricane-boost. The net upside surprise for the day’s reports was reinforced by a 2-point bounce in the NAHB index to 70, and a rise in the weekly Bloomberg consumer comfort index to 52.1 from 51.5.

Main Macro Events Today
 

  • ECB – ECB Pres. Draghi is due to speak at Frankfurt European Banking Congress.
  • Canadian CPI – Expectations – rise to 0.1% m/m in October after the 0.2% gain in September. Furthermore, CPI is expected to dip to a 1.5% annual growth pace in October from the 1.6% pace in September (y/y, nsa).
  • US Building Permits – Expectations – increase up to a 1.247 mln rate from 1.215 mln.
  • US Housing Starts – Expectations – increase up to a 1.185 mln rate from 1.127 mln.
