Summary:  Bank Of England up today and Earnings boost equities


Good Morning,

The strong bullish sentiment  in Equities continued  after the brief pause after the End of July and the Nasdaq could add 2.6%, the S&P 1.56 and the Dow 1,29%. Earnings by Paypal and a buyback program by Moderna boosted sentiment along with a strong non-manufacturing PMI. Apple, Amazon and Meta added more than 4%. Teg GER40 rose to 13650.

China launched live-fire military drills around  Taiwan after Nancy Pelosi’s visit. They are  scheduled to last until  Sunday and introduced sanctions against Taiwan but so far the reaction is more moderate than feared, let us hope that remains.

Yields are trading nervous on Data and the hawkish Fed Speakers, the 2 year traded a 20 basis point range and is now near the middle at 3.08.

The USD Index is near yesterday’s morning level at 106. 42, EURUSD at 1.0170 and GBPUSD at 1.2150. Gold and Silver see-sawed and are now just above the 20 and 1772. USDJPY seems to take a breather at 133.90.

The Bank of England is expected to raise interest rates by the most since 1995, a  hike of  50 basis  points is priced in with a probability of 85% based on rate futures.

The newest FX poll by Reuters. 70% of the questioned analysts believe the USD has not yet peaked but most believe that to happen in the next six months.

Key driver for the overall sentiment are the strong earnings and strong fundamental data, hawkish Fed speakers cannot dampen the strong sentiment for long – it seems to be a bit of a FOMO rally. Watch the BOE today and the FOMC tomorrow will be the event of the week. Alibaba earinigs will be closely watched and our Strats team in Asia  commented Mega cap platform companies are facing multiple headwinds, including the amended Anti-Monopoly Law in China
