Mr Price Action/ September 8, 2017/ Market Update, Market Update Posts/ 0 comments

 

Short recap

 

Asia in red

Europe opening lower

ECB kept its policy unchanged

Draghi stayed dovish, has not offered any clear indication on what’s next

Despite strong EUR pushing inflation lower and economy doing well

Ifo head warning of next EZ crisis

Market keeps testing upside in EURUSD

North Korea (important public holiday 9.9. may be topped by another missile test) and Irma risks present – going unhedged to the weekend?

 

Equities

 

Eicher Motors interested in Ducati (USD 2 bln)

BMW firing on all cylinders to start mass production of e-cars

To compete with Tesla with 12 models by 2025

EURUSD at 1.2100 will be noticed by EZ stocks

Likely to change the sentiment, hitting DAX

An opportunity from Harvey/Irma as insurance (-12%), leisure stocks were hit yesterday

Insurance down 12%, while during Katarina declined 5% only

Hedging by S&P 500 makes sense

Amazon kicking out competition among cities in US

By announcing plans to build 2nd HQ (USD 5 bln)

Apple likely to face supply shortage and delays in new iPhone production

Eli Lilly to cut off 8% of workforce

JPMorgan making consumer, retail and internet divisions to work closer

Best (Alibaba behind) launching IPO in US (USD 930 mln)

 

Bonds

 

10-yr Trys yield at 2.04% – dipped lower in Asia trading

The dip below 2% may see more declines

10-yr Bund yield at 0.29%

Investors unloading property bonds linked to Texas (hit by hurricane Harvey)

 

DXY

 

Below 2016 low at 91.88, closing there today?

If it does, more USD weakness is likely with target around 89.00 area

Close above may confirm the lows in USD

Lower capital demand, thus growing USD supply has negative effect on USD

Trump needs to deliver (tax reform for companies to increase investments) and Fed to hike to support dollar

 

EURUSD

 

Dovish Draghi but EUR higher…

As effects of higher EUR are offset by lower yields

1.2000 is the fair value based on models

Resistance at 1.2071

Market pricing first hike in June 2019

Area between 1.1850/1.2050 may be a new playground until FOMC and next ECB

 

USDJPY

 

Breaks 2017 low at 108.12

Heading to 105/106.00

Below 108.00 level looks attractive to Japanese investors

 

Gold/Platina

 

Resistance in sight at 1375/80 (Fibo 38.2%/2016 high)

Well supported by mix of low US yields, weak USDJPY, increasing amount of bonds trading at negative yield

Raising speculative positions and option hedging

Platina can catch up the gold rally soon, as it trades at discount

 

Oil

 

Harvey hit the oil biz in US and what about Irma that is stronger?

Decline in inventories offset by decline in production and refinery demand keep the oil rally in check

But getting to unsustainable levels with WTI getting closer to USD 55

Risk of correcting to USD 50

 

Data/events

 

ECB’s Weidmann (0900 GMT)

Fed’s Harker (1245 GMT)

Fed’s Dudley

 

Sep 19-20 FOMC

Sep 21 – Brexit – a major speech from May expected

Is UK sort of reshuffling priorities or looking at a reset of talks?

Sep 29 – US debt ceiling deadline

Oct 18 – China National Congress

Oct 26 ECB
