Macro Dragon: Welcome to WK # 25... 

 

Top of Mind…

  • Happy Monday Folks & Welcome to WK # 25… What kind of week are you trying to have?
  • Quick snapshot of the wk ahead will likely be focused on Powell, Clarida as well as decisions out of BoJ & likely more importantly SNB. We’ll get the first speech from BoC’s new governor Macklem. There is also a flock of EM CB’s meeting this wk including Chile, Brazil, Indonesia, Russia & Taiwan.
  • Most important known unknowns is likely to be the EU meetings discussing the 750bn euros – the so called “frugal” four vs. the German-Franco-Italiano block.
  • Technicals & Charts: Overall chart action over the wkd suggests to KVP quite a bit of divergence between daily & hourly charts, most daily suggesting MR towards more risk-of & USD strength... yet the hrly trying to say we likely already saw that start to correct on Fri...
  • A few other things that were noted... AUD & NZD... much closer to resistance with support being miles away...
  • NOK had a pretty decent correction last wk, in fact the G10 worst vs. USD.... -3.4% vs. say CAD -1.2%.... hmm....
  • Looks like overall skews of favoring Gold, JPY & CHF into FOMC as being asymmetrical have played out well... as of last wk were +2.7%, +2.1% & +1.0% vs. USD
  • Copper interestingly enough still did very well last wk, despite of the rock-roll prior bullish wk... i.e. +1.7% & +5.4%...
  • Bonds - especially TY1 & Bunds prices had a massive reversal upwards  last wk... JGBs & CGBs lagging...
  • Equities - huge weekly inverse hammers with AMZN & TSLA (generally bearish indicator), those wicks are longer than a US unemployment line... interestingly things like NFLX have been broken down for a while... whilst your Zooms similar to Amazon & Tesla went on to make ATH last wk
  • Economic data: Econ data is relatively light outside of China’s monthly growth numbers, Australia’s monthly jobs numbers & New Zealand quarterly inflation data. We got some monthly inflation figures out of the UK, CA & EZ… retail sales out of the US, UK & CA… with the rest being a mixed bag. Worth noting there is a lot of bond auctions this wk  
  • Central Banks: Japan, UK, Chile, Brazil, Indonesia, Taiwan, Russia
  • Holidays: No major markets out   
  • US: Empire State, Retail Sales, Cap. Util, IP, Housing data, Philly Fed, Current Account
  • CH: All three - Fixed Asset Investments, IP & Retail Sales have missed expectations
  • EZ: Trade Balance, GER ZEW, Final CPI, ECB Economic Bulletin, Current Account    
  • JP: BoJ, Tertiary Industry Activity, Trade Balance, National Core CPI
  • UK: BoE, AHE, CPI, House Prices, Retail Sales
  • AU: RBA Mins, Jobs Data
  • NZ: GDP Q/Q, Visitor Arrivals, Milk Auction
  • CA: Mfg. Sales, CPI, ADP, House Prices, Retail Sales
