Summary:  BoJ Finally Interveses

Good morning,

Traders celebrated he rise of Google to the 2 trillion USD Market cap and largely ignored the higher than feared inflation. The Dow rose 0.40%, the S&P 1%, and the Nasdaq 2.% as Alphabet closed 10% higher, Microsoft rose 1.8%, Amazon 3.4% and Nvidia 5.8. This morning the friendly mood prevails with up across the board but he market to watch is Japan at the moment where the Bank of Japan seems to be intervening. In the Sunday open, we exceeded 160 Yen against the USD and then fell 5 yen in the early morning. High was 160,30, Low 155.07 and now 156.60.

EURUSD is 1.0725, GBPUSD 1.2540, Gold and Silver little changed over the weekend at 2331 and 27.25. Bitcoin is in one of it`s sideways phases again at 62300, Oil 83.20.

Elon Musk visited China yesterday and seems to have achieved breakthrough agreements regarding self-driving technology. The Stock will be worth watching today.

For the Fed Preview, the current expectation is no rate-change on Wednesday with a probability of 96%, the first rate cut is priced in in November and by December the rate is seen at -35 bps from current level.

Key events of the coming week will be the Refinancing announcement by the Fed on Wednesday as well as the US Rate decision on Wednesday and the Nonfarm Payroll in Friday, accompanied by other data and risk factors. The rate decision happens when many traders will be off for May 1st holidays, a good opportunity for sharp moves on any surprise comments.

The Middle east remains a source of worry with talks of a truce remaining unsuccessful and an attack on Rafah looming as US Secretary Blinken visits the area.

We further expect Month end adjustments and many expiries.
