Not only has the earnings in the USA moving markets, but also all the news coming from Europe where Russia-Ukraine conflict persists influencing markets in various ways. The information about German Continental (CFD) restarting its factories in Russia to “protect workers” shocked many and brought on discussions.

Mikołaj Marcinowski Mikołaj Marcinowski 20.04.2022 09:37
We cannot believe one of the most popular company has decreased by almost 25%. Even if the earnings are not “significantly” lower than the forecast prepared by Investing.com, the amount of subscribers who fled amid Russia-Ukraine conflict is shocking. As our team informed this morning the decrease amounts to 700 thousands! Netflix (NFLX) Earnings – What caused the drop? Our team reviewed the report. According to Netflix’s Letter To Shareholders: Second, in addition to our 222m paying households, we estimate that Netflix is being shared with over 100m additional households, including over 30m in the UCAN region. Account sharing as a percentage of our paying membership hasn’t changed much over the years, but, coupled with the first factor, means it’s harder to grow membership in many markets - an issue that was obscured by our COVID growth. The Query: How To Get Cheaper Netflix Will Finally Get The Answer? According to CNBC and Netflix's CEO, growth could be resumed and accelerated by introducing advertisements to Netflix what sound really interesting both for market and users.

Volatility is the key word of markets today. There are not many important indicators printed, but geopolitics influence markets noticeably. Crude Oil inventories is released today and according to Investing.com it’s predicted, that if Russian gas is banned immediately by the EU, the price could rise to $185! DAX (GER40) - Volkswagen, Continental And BMW Impress! Three automotive companies are doing really, really well today as all of them gained above 1% over last 24 hours. What to come? We can somehow predict that Daimler will go up in the “gainers ranking” as there’s another car teased by Mercedes recently. #GIMSNEWS | @MercedesBenz is consolidating its position among luxury EVs manufacturers. This is the #EQS SUV, which is 5.125 m long and can accommodate up to 7 passengers. Engine outputs go from 265 to 400 kW (360 to 544 PS) and the WLTP range is announced from 507 to 660 km. pic.twitter.com/lKN3zryfzG — Geneva International Motor Show (@GimsSwiss) April 19, 2022 As we see DAX has been really volatile today losing and adding much throughout the day. However, despite the two noticeable moves the price was gradually going up for last two hours. We will see what will the next part of French election and the Russia-Ukraine bring to the state of this well-known index, where companies like Adidas, Daimler, BMW and Deutsche Bank (which has decreased last week) are included. IBEX35 – We’re Back! Ahead Of French Election – Emanuel Macron vs. Marine LePen! The Spanish index has been below-the-line for some today, but as the chart show it’s back in the game trading near 0% level. What’s next?

Fifty Third (FITB) has published its earnings already and they’re quite similar to the forecast of Investing.com, so don’t expect significant fluctuations. If someone ask me about volatility-maker which for now, I would point the Iridium (IRDM) and Lockheed Martin (LMT) which earnings reports exceeded or subceeded the expectations. So the earnings probably helped the index to open quite higher. Tomorrow is the day as well - Tesla (TSLA) and Procter&Gamble will release their earnings! What Will Earnings Bring On? J&J Done, Awaiting Netflix (NFLX) And IBM! There are two popular and major brands publishing their Q1 reports today. Netflix (NFLX) banned access to its platform in Russia, so we may predict that many subscribers are not there anymore. IBM serves many IT solutions around the world and as the Russia-Ukraine conflict escalated and became a “no.1 market mover”, it’s possible the company’s income had changed amid ongoing war. However, we’ll have to wait some time for the news about these two companies and the outlook for indices as earnings of IBM and NFLX are released after market hours. Let’s stay tuned!

Beginning of the week was quite calm for the German index, but as some official and not so official news about French election went public, GER 40 plunged. Is it a worry caused by two different visions of France as a part of the EU in the near future? As we read and wrote several times recently – the meaning of integrity with the European Union may be changed if Marine LePen becomes the president of France.

DAX, EUR/GBP And EUR/USD Recovered Thanks To ECB Interest Rate Decision!? European Central Bank Makes European Indices Gain

Mikołaj Marcinowski Mikołaj Marcinowski 14.04.2022 16:23
It’s not easy time for Europe’s residents and European Central Bank’s decision makers. Ongoing war in the Ukraine with foreseen, intensified warfare and consequences of COVID-19 pandemic influenced economics of many countries. Naturally, the charts show that DAX and CAC40 trade higher than before the outbreak of the virus. To me, it only supports the thesis all mentioned events stopped European indices, companies and countries from growing much, much further. Emphatic European Central Bank (ECB) Let Economies Recover And Stay Strong? Since 2016 the ECB interest rate has amounted to 0%. Having in mind all the events which took place throughout last six years it seems to had been a correct decision. Coronavirus crisis influenced countries despite their economic status so tighter monetary policy would have weaken the euro and equities even further. But… Related article: ECB Interest Rate Decision Is Coming! European Indices (DAX, CAC40) To Plunge Or Rise? What About Forex Pairs? Inflation Is Taking Its Toll! Although the Russia-Ukraine warfare is still there and negotiations don’t seem to be working and stimulus for markets is highly demanded, the inflation is gaining momentum around the world. ECB is trapped in. These two contradictory factors may make decision makers confused, but let’s have a look how have markets reacted to today’s monetary policy statement of ECB. Forex: EUR/GBP Chart Shows Consequent Move Of The Price Strengthening of euro or weakening of British pound is driven by i.a. inflation data coming from the United Kingdom. The news coming from the UK in past months weren’t so optimistic as the inflation hit 30-year-high. EUR/GBP Chart Forex: EUR/USD influenced by both – ECB interest rate decision, war and Fed’s rhetoric As the week is coming to the end we see how many factors shaped the rates of certain currencies. This week’s inflation data of USA and the release of crude oil inventories make the asset quite volatile. Yeah… The right hand side… That’s a drop!

Inflation in the US and Great Britain hits high levels and everybody is working hard to handle it. Tightening of monetary policy, hawkish rhetoric and other means are used to tackle one of the most significant problem of today’s world. Today’s news? The US PPI (MoM) hit 1.4% and crude oil inventories didn’t help USOIL to go down. Tomorrow is going to influence European indices as ECB releases its long-awaited interest rate decision. The announcement takes place at 12:45 p.m. tomorrow. Undoubtedly loose monetary policy has helped DAX, CAC40 and IBEX35 many times before As we see on the charts ECB was hawkish many years ago. However, the monetary policy has been loosen several times to finally become a “neutral” one. ECB interest rate amounts to 0% right now and the last time the key rate got higher was 2016. Since then DAX (below) has been stimulated by loose monetary policy.

Zloty You Poor Thing! Greenback Is Supported By Fed’s, DXY Has Gained 7%! What About ECB!?

Mikołaj Marcinowski Mikołaj Marcinowski 07.04.2022 16:17
Markets never sleep and never rest. They’re all time influenced by all these tightening, hawks and doves. COVID has impacted all of us two years ago and some countries are still fighting consequences of the crisis. Over a month ago we have started another part of history which hasn’t been full of warfare and we may say conflicts “like” this one between Russia and Ukraine. Charts: courtesy of TradingView.com Measures to fight crisis and inflation Rising prices of the most important commodities like crude oil, nickel, wheat, gas and many, many more triggered national banks to fight inflation. Many banks around the world have become hawkish like never before. All of major banks raised their interest rates. Bank of England, Fed ECB – they all decided to tighten monetary policy or apply hawkish rhetoric as proper departments of i.a. the USA and the EU imposed sanctions on Russia what obviously pulled the prices to very high levels or even ATHs. Duels of currencies – Greenback “stronger than ever”? We have followed recent events around the world. Yesterday’s FOMC Meeting Minutes, National Bank of Poland’s interest rate decision and today’s ECB Meeting Minutes are shaping the markets at the moment. Dollar Index shows an impressive performance of USD. DXY has gained over 7% over last year. However, EUR/USD and GBP/USD pairs show other currencies are fine too. USDPLN (5D) – Zloty, do something! Every currency is or is going to be supported by proper institutions and there are serious duels coming. Unfortunately not every currency is so ‘open’ for monetary policy tightening. Even a 100bps raise of the NBP’s interest rate hasn’t helped zloty to keep its rate on a proper level. As we see on the chart fluctuations are there and zloty showed a “sample” of its abilities…, but it was like time-limited demo version. Dollar feels really well this time, next rate hikes are expected and situation in the eastern Europe keeps influencing PLN. Let’s have a look at other forex pairs. British pound has strengthened recently – look at this slightly smooth slide!

Mikołaj Marcinowski Mikołaj Marcinowski 06.04.2022 17:04
It’s been a day full of important economic data coming from around the world. In Europe next sanctions are being discussed and Polish interest rate decision has been announced. In the USA crude oil inventories exceeded 2M and FOMC Meeting Minutes will be released shortly. Not only Minutes will influence DXY, but also rhetoric of Fed’s Harker has done. All of these events definitely influenced markets. Forex pairs fluctuated and commodities are triggered. Throughout the day crude oil has been trading quite high, over 2% higher. The closer crude oil inventories has been, the lower the price gone. 24H chart shows a rebound on the right hand side followed by another drop which is probably caused by Fed’s rhetoric and crude oil inventories indicator. Crude Oil Price Chart – 24 hours FOMC Meeting Minutes and Fed’s members rhetoric can make markets really volatile. Some fluctuations were highlighted by Investing.com. Stock markets may plunge further if the rhetoric to persist throughout the month. The next interest rate decision release takes place on May 4th. US Dollar Index – DXY – 24 hours If dollar strengthens some may say Bitcoin plunges. This time they’re right. It’s ca. 3.5% down and two significant drops are visible on the chart. The first one was noticed in the morning, and another one after Harker’s testimony. Bitcoin Price Chart – 24 hours Source/Data: Investing.com, TradingView.com Charts: Courtesy of TradingView.com

GBP Loses! EUR Gains! NFP (Non Farm Payrolls) Is Released And We Know How Have Forex Pairs Reacted To This Week's Events!

Mikołaj Marcinowski Mikołaj Marcinowski 01.04.2022 23:37
It was another week full of events, geopolitical news and economic indicators releases. As the Forex pairs charts show the fluctuation weren’t always slight and developed an interesting outlook ahead of April which has just begun. EUR/USD gained over 0.5% Let’s begin with EUR/USD. Of course this pair is significantly affected by the slowly ceasing (?) conflict between Russia and Ukraine. As we can see on the chart there was a huge rise on Tuesday as the tensions were reported to loose its momentum. Cease fire has been said to come shortly and this optimism seems to had remained till the end of the week. There’s no doubt today’s fluctuations were caused by the release of NFP. The following week’s FOMC Meeting Minutes will surely let us have a closer look of dollar’s rate future. EUR/GBP gained ca. 1.1% EUR has been fighting all the week to finally beat British pound. It seems that the single currency needs to be triggered, but only a little, to rise significantly. Naturally these supporters were positive news about cease fire in the eastern Europe. In the following week BoE’s Bailey speaks and we can expect that it will be an introduction to next monetary policy decisions. USD/CHF – Swiss franc strengthened… The beginning of the week wasn’t so optimistic for CHF. Before the news coming from Ukraine it was losing the fight with dollar. The situation got better after positive news about possible cease fire. USD/PLN – Zloty feels good Poland lies close to the area where the conflict takes place. Because of corelations and other factors Polish zloty was hit several times. After tightening of monetary policy (next decisions to come shortly) and optimistic signals from Ukraine zloty strenghthened again gaining 1.6% over the week.

The pair even neared the 2% gain level, but during the week has declined again slowly ending it near +1.2%. GBP/USD – Two announcements correlation The week hadn’t began too positively for British pound, but the following days had put GBP back on track to a ca. 1% gain after significant declines shortly after Fed and BoE decisions on accordingly Wednesday and Thursday. EUR/GBP – A ca. 1% Increased Corrected Naturally Fed’s announcement didn’t affect the single currency and British bound heavily, but the Bank of England’s fuelled EUR/GBP almost 1% jump which had been gradually corrected in the following days leaving the pair almost unchanged compared to the 14th March. USD/PLN – exotic pair with interesting outlook There’s no doubt PLN has strengthened throughout the week even if Fed announced the raise of interest rate. The stronger outlook of PLN is surely caused by the previous week’s tightening of monetary policy. EUR/PLN – PLN gained ca. 1.5% Global factors makes the pais with PLN the most interesting ones as another shows a significant loss of Euro To Polish zloty. The following week might bring next tempting fluctuations so let’s keep an eye on this pair.

It’s been almost two weeks since Russia invaded Ukraine. Even if the first day weren’t affected by huge rises, recent days show a major lift across markets. Source: TradingView.com Nickel There are some sensational rises beginning with Nickel price which increased by over 150% what can significantly affect many branches as Nickel is used, among others, in automotive and medical industries. Gold Gold raised by ‘only’ 4%, but it trades over magic $2000 level which nears ATH of Ca. $2100 (2020). XAU is believed to be a safe-haven as tensions rise and other assets’ fluctuations scare off investors. Crude Oil – BRENT and WTI Crude Oil prices have been rising since the first sights of invasion, but hitting Ca. $130 per barrel (to put it mildly) confused both investors and drivers around the world. Generally speaking, Crude Oil price has increased by Ca. 30% since the beginning of the war. Bitcoin BTC hasn’t fluctuated much and sticks to the levels near $40k, increasing by Ca. 5% since the invasion. Russian Rouble Currency of the invader has weakened significantly – by ca. 40% as RUBUSD chart shows. It will be really hard to get the Russian currency back to the game after such decrease. MOEX Some say Russian Index (RTSI – RU50) ‘surrendered’ shortly after the invasion has started as it remains closed since 1/03. At that time RTSI had been ca. 26% higher than on the first day of the warfare. DAX (GER 40) One of the greatest European index has lost almost 10%, what shows how broad is the influence of Russia-Ukraine War. Wheat Last but (definitely) not least… Wheat price increased by over 40% as conflicted countries – Russia and Ukraine are the major suppliers of such commodities.

Wednesday - USA On Wednesday we focus on USA, where JOLTs Job Openings (3 p.m.) and US Crude Oil Inventories (3:30 p.m.) are released. Thursday – European Union and USA Thursday is full of Europe-targeted events.

Saudi Aramco to partner PKN Orlen

Mikołaj Marcinowski Mikołaj Marcinowski 12.01.2022 16:00
PKN Orlen makes next steps forward in its development. Some moves containing cooperation with Saudi Aramco and Hungarian company MOL has been announced. As we read on Polish company website - ORLEN.PL: ‘This is a watershed moment for the Polish fuel industry. We are about to finalise the acquisition of LOTOS Group, a deal intended to benefit the entire Polish economy, both companies involved, their respective customers, employees and shareholders. Ever since the process was launched, we have emphasised that the priority is to derive additional benefits from the merger remedies, and we have achieved just that. If the merger is followed through, it would provide an opportunity to ensure supplies to Poland of crude oil of sustainably high quality from Saudi Aramco. Such international partnerships are crucial to our vision of building the largest multi-utility group in this part of Europe. In the retail area, we have negotiated with our Hungarian partner an asset exchange deal, which will directly advance our plans of geographical expansion by strengthening the retail chain in Slovakia, but also through the entry into a completely new market of Hungary. Proceeds from the divestment of fuel stations will partly be applied to acquire another 100 retail sites across the region, in line with our strategic objectives. The merger between PKN ORLEN and the LOTOS Group will mark the inception of a single strong group capable of delivering environmentally friendly energy to the Polish economy and meeting the challenges posed by the fuel and energy transition,’ says Daniel Obajtek, President of the PKN ORLEN Management Board. ‘These acquisitions will support the diversification of Aramco’s product portfolio across the hydrocarbon value chain — including a focus on liquids-to-chemicals pathways. Our expanding global network of refineries and chemical joint ventures allows us to reach new markets with our products, and strategically place crude oil volumes across different geographies. Our business objectives for oil and chemicals are closely aligned with PKN ORLEN, and we are exploring additional opportunities in the European petrochemicals market, as well as in R&D,’ says Mohammed Al Qahtani, Aramco Vice President for Downstream. The acquisition of the LOTOS Group by PKN ORLEN would provide a real opportunity to diversify the sources of feedstock supplies. If the acquisition is finalised, PKN ORLEN will guarantee, under a long-term agreement, crude oil supplies from Saudi Aramco at the level of 200 to 337 thousand barrels per day. It is estimated that post merger this would cover up to 45% of total oil demand from the entire ORLEN Group, in Poland, Lithuania and the Czech Republic. In order to maximise benefits of the partnerships with strong global players, PKN ORLEN, under separate agreements with Saudi Aramco and SABIC (one of the world’s largest petrochemical companies), is to discuss potential joint investment projects in advanced high-margin petrochemicals. As potential areas for collaboration, opportunities to pursue development projects in Poland or in Central and Eastern Europe will be explored. PKN ORLEN and Saudi Aramco have also signed an agreement providing for their possible collaboration in research and development. R&D has been assigned a key priority in the ORLEN2030 strategy, and projects designed to foster innovation have been stepped up over the past three years. One of these projects is a state-of-the art research and development centre launched by PKN ORLEN in 2021, which provides real support in the pursuit of its strategic goals.  Source:
