Market Update – November 29 – Tightening Tilt, COVID Control & Month End Flows.


daily-market-update-696x364.png

  • The USDIndex rallied to 106.70 in the previous session but formed a correction in Asia session to 106.00 ahead of a COVID-19 press briefing in China that is spurring hopes of a potential easing in the country’s strict pandemic restrictions.
  • Fed Officials Signal Higher rates: Hawkish reminders from key Fed officials Williams, Bullard, and Brainard that rates will have to go higher helped weigh on the markets in Monday action. Wall Street was weaker overnight on the back of Williams’s and Bullard’s comments, and slipped further as Brainard tripled down on the rate outlook.
  • US houses prices fall like in 2008.
  • Stocks – Global stocks rise after yesterday’s dip. US100 and US500 dropped -1.58% and 1.54%, respectively, with the US30 off -1.45% amid broadbased weakness. Today however the rumours of an earlier easing of strict COVID-19 restrictions along wihth vaccinations for over 80-year olds, found buyers in the stock market with a Chinese stocks rebound. Hang Seng and CSI 300 bounced 4% and 3% respectively. ASX and Nikkei closed narrowly mixed. GER40 and UK100 futures are up 0.5% and 0.4% respectively.
  • EUR – reversed from 5-month peak. Currently at 1.0360. ECB’s Lagarde said overnight that inflation had not peaked and it risks turning out even higher than currently expected, hinting at a series of interest rate hikes ahead.
  • JPY along with Yuan, Aussie and Kiwi on bid.
  • GBP – turns again below 1.20 at 1.1987.
  • USOiljumps to 80.00 as China refines its approach for dealing with protest and Covid control. All eyes are on weekend OPEC+ meeting. EU fails to agree on Russian oil price cap once again.
  • Gold – fully recovered yesterday’s losses, currently at $1754.
Today – Swiss GDP, German HICP , Canadian Q3 GDP, US Consumer Confidence and BOE Governor Bailey speech.

2022-11-29_09-56-21.jpg


Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) NZDUSD (+1.10%), bounces to 0.6235. MAs aligning higher and RSI at 63 but MACD histogram & signal line remain below 0. H1 ATR 0.00147, Daily ATR 0.00962.

Market Update – November 30.


daily-market-update-696x364.png

  • USDIndex slightly below 1-week amid reports of a softer stance on Covid emerging in China’s official rhetoric, which is keeping hopes alive that there won’t be a move back to tighter restrictions. All eyes are on an expected hawkish stance from Chair Powell’s speech today.
  • Stocks – The Nikkei closed with a -0.2% loss, the ASX managed a 0.4% gain and Hang Seng and CSI300 are currently up 1.1% and 0.1% respectively. GER40 and UK100 futures are up 0.6% and 0.4% respectively. US futures are underperforming, but also managing slight gains. Wall Street closed mixed with the NASDAQ dropping -0.59% on weakness in tech and the rise in yields.
  • Japan’s factory output fell for a 2nd consecutive month in October, and China’s factory activity contracted at a faster pace in November, weighed down by softening global demand.
  • JPY – is holding in the 138-139 range.
  • USOil – supported ahead of the OPEC+ meeting on December 4. Energy was lifted by easing in China jitters.
  • AUD & NZD downward pressure from worse than expected Chinese manufacturing surveys.
  • Gold – extends gain to $1757.
Today – Attention is on Powell’s speech later today, who is likely to reinforce yesterday’s hawkish Fedspeak from Williams, Bullard, and Mester who all stressed rates are headed higher still and could remain so for some time. Elsewhere is EU HICP, US ADP and Q3 GDP.

eu_update_1200x628-e1567669197104-696x339.png

  • The USD Index has climbed to 105.39 but off its 200-DMA following the stronger than data, including the ISM services and Factory orders reports that also showed still elevated price levels. The less hawkish Fed views & uncertainty over rate path adds a ceiling on USD.

  • The curve inversion deepened to -80 bps, not seen since 1981.The belly of the curve continues to lead the weakness in Treasuries with the 3-year yield up 15 bps to 4.129%. The 10-year is 11.7 bps higher at 3.603%.
  • AUD – ranging at 0.6720-0.6735 following 25 bps hike from RBA and a prediction of further hikes ahead.

  • Stocks – US100 closed with a -1.93% decline, with the US500 off -1.79% and the US30 -1.40% in the red. The declines saw the US500 drop back below 4,000, with the US30 under 34,000.
2022-12-06_09-20-15.jpg


  • USOil – The January WTI crude slipped -3.8% to $76.93 on concerns Fed tightening will weaken demand. There was little impact as the EU price cap went into effect.
  • Gold – reverts to $1770 from $1809 highs, as the USD backed up from early lows amid US data releases. Bullion failed to close above $1800.

Oil Drops Hit the Loonie, Ahead of BOC Interest Rates!


USDCAD-696x411.png
USDCAD,D1
The USDCAD exchange rate strengthened after a relatively hawkish Fed, which is likely to push interest rates above 5% in 2023, following a series of strong economic data from the US. On Friday, data showed that the US economy added more than 263K jobs in November, while the unemployment rate remained unchanged at 3.7%. Wages jumped 5.2% even as tech companies lost thousands of jobs. And on Monday, data showed that the non-manufacturing PMI spiked in November.

The BOC will hold its 8th and final rate setting meeting for 2022 today (December 7), a week before the Fed and ECB meetings on December 14 and 15 respectively. The rate decision will be announced at 15:00 GMT with a press conference by Governor Macklem at 16:00 GMT. This will be the biggest catalyst for the movement of USDCAD. The market predicts that the central bank will raise interest rates by 0.50% to 4.25%. This decision was taken at a time when Canadian inflation was still high. According to Statcan, the country’s annual inflation rose to 6.9% in October due to rising gasoline and mortgage prices.

Crucially, the BOC’s decision comes at a time when Canada’s yield curve has fallen to its lowest level since the 1980s. The spread between 10 and 2 year bonds rose to 100 basis points, signaling that the economy was headed for a major recession. Hence, the BOC is likely to deliver a dovish rate hike. Since the October meeting, data releases have been on the positive side. GDP growth surprisingly reversed in Q3 with an annualized rate of 2.9% q/q, while the latest inflation figures show signs of stabilizing at what could be called a very high level. Meanwhile, labor market data came in stronger than anticipated for October, but retail sales for September painted a bleaker picture.

Technical Analysis​

The recent weakening of the Canadian Dollar has been distorted by the decline in world crude oil prices. Currently, USDCAD is trading at 1.3655, strengthening by 1.5% this week. The price is above the 26-day exponential moving average and is trying to catch up to the price on the resistance’s right shoulder at 1.3807. The RSI is above the 50 level, the MACD histogram is just shy of crossing the zero line. On the downside, the neckline of the head and shoulder pattern will still function as minor support at 1.3502.

USDCAD-1.png
USDCAD, H8
Intraday bias remains neutral, while with immediate focus on the 1.3807 resistance, a strong break there would confirm the case that correction from 1.3976 has been completed at 1.3225. Further gains should be seen to the head of 1.3976. On the downside, a follow-through break of 1.3225 could see a second attempt to reverse the trend towards the 1.3000 round figure. The RSI at 66 is of course not saturated yet while MACD is still in the buy zone, trying to thwart the head and shoulder pattern that has been formed. Further movement will be influenced by the BOC interest rate decision as well as statements from Bank officials.
