Ugly economic data was responsible for a decent plunge in US equities on Tuesday. The S&P500 slid 2% yesterday and Nasdaq took another 3% hit following a soft CB consumer confidence index and sharp fall in Richmond manufacturing index, hinting at softer economic activity as a result of tighter Federal Reserve (Fed) policy. European stocks failed to build on the early gains. Volatility remains high, and oil prices sustained. The latest API data showed an almost 4-million-barrel decline in US oil inventories, versus 110’000-barrel fall predicted by analysts. An eventual cap on Russian oil may worsen the energy crisis, and OPEC will unlikely relieve stress today. On the economic agenda, plenty of central bankers are due to speak today at a European Central Bank (ECB) event, including the Fed Chair Jerome Powell and the Bank of England (BoE) Governor Andrew Bailey. But all eyes are on Christine Lagarde, and her magical anti-fragmentation tool, which will solve the Euro zone debt problem. But euro bulls are increasingly less convinced!

Optimism didn’t last long yesterday, and the market mood turned rapidly sour, as energy prices rebounded with the escalation of tensions in Ukraine. UAE Energy Minister said yesterday that they are pumping near maximum capacity and unrest in Libya and Ecuador hint at further tighter supply. US crude trades past the $112 level this morning, and firmer oil keeps the concerns of high inflation tight, again. In the FX, the EURUSD tests the 50-DMA to the upside, as hawks prepare for hawkish comments from Christine Lagarde this week. The BoJ, on the other hand, boosts JGB purchases to defend its yield curve strategy, but how long can it do so? In individual stocks, tech stocks remain under a decent selling pressure as earnings, which will be released by end of the month come in investors’ focus.

Asian stocks kicked off the week on a bullish note to catch up with the American session gains on Friday. Softening oil and commodity prices, combined with the softening University of Michigan expectations on five-year inflation survey, and quarterly rebalancing of portfolios explained gains. BUT, the size of the rebound remains worrying, the market volatility remains high, and the gains may not last long. Russia bombed Kiev this weekend, as a sign of a renewed escalation in the Ukraine war. G7 leaders hinted at more sanctions against Russia. News of further escalation between Russia and the West is pushing oil prices higher this morning. Investor attention will slowly start shifting to the second quarter earnings to give a better idea on how the Fed tightening and the persistent inflation impacted the company earnings in the latest quarter.

Sentiment is better, but the news is not. The latest flash PMI readings from Japan to Europe and to the US showed a slowing global activity in June. The slowing activity, and the call for a global recession started pressuring oil and commodity prices to the downside. Norway delivered a bigger than expected 50bp hike, and Banxico rose by 75bp hike, the country’s biggest rate hike ever. Plus, Moscow cuts the gas supply to Germany via Nord Stream 1, leading to another spike in the European natural gas futures. The higher gas prices should keep the pressure high for oil, as although the prospects of demand are being cut, the production remains limited to the refining capacity. European and US futures hint at a hopefully calm session before the weekly closing bell, and we don’t have much on today’s economic calendar. In the FX, the US dollar hasn’t recorded a fresh high since about ten days, and the prospects of slowing US growth, the rising probability of recession, and the hawkish tone from other major central banks should prevent the greenback from gaining a fresh positive momentum.

Market optimism couldn’t survive to Jerome Powell’s testimony yesterday, as he said that a recession is possible, and that calling a soft landing is ‘very challenging’ under the current circumstances. Major US indices closed the session slightly in the negative. Powell will testify today, as well, but most of the negative pricing is certainly done by now. In commodities, the barrel of American crude extended losses below $103 yesterday, BP fell and iShares Diversified Commodity index fell below the 100-DMA for the first time this year, and deeper decline is possible, given the risks of tighter monetary policies to the global economy. The British FTSE index, which has a high concentration of oil and mining stocks lose its advance versus its US peers.

US equity markets kicked off the short trading week with a bang. But gains may not last as the Jerome Powell’s semiannual testimony could turn the market mood sour again as the Fed Chief is expected to reiterate his strong commitment to fighting inflation even if it means slower economy and a softer jobs market.

Crude oil fell to $106 per barrel this morning, as iShares Diversified Commodity index broke the 50-DMA significantly for the first time this year.

Relevance up to 08:00 UTC+2 Company does not offer investment advice and the analysis performed does not guarantee results. The market analysis posted here is meant to increase your awareness, but not to give instructions to make a trade.   Technical outlook: Silver slipped close to $21.50 after hitting up to $21.95 over the last week. The metal is expected to find intraday support at around the $21.30-40 zone before it could resume its rally towards the $24.00-20 area. Bulls will be inclined to hold prices above $20.90 and broadly above $20.45 to keep the structure constructive. Silver is still working on the last leg rally within the corrective phase that had begun since the $20.45 lows earlier. The first and second waves of the corrective rally terminated at around $22.44 and $20.90 respectively. If the above structure holds well, the metal should produce a sharp rally towards $24.00 as the third wave progresses. Silver has been in a downtrend since the $30.08 highs printed in February 2021. The metal has carved a recent larger degree downswing between $26.22 and $20.45 as seen on the daily chart. Also, note that the $24.00-20 zone is passing close to the Fibonacci 0.618 retracement of the above downswing. Hence, a high probability remains for a turn lower if prices manage to reach there. Trading plan: Potential rally through $24.00 against $20.00 Good luck!   Read more: https://www.instaforex.eu/forex_analysis/280985

The week started on a calm note, with small gains in European indices and US futures. The selloff in cryptocurrencies slowed, crude oil consolidated above the $110 per barrel and gold remained offered as the improved risk appetite, and the prospects of higher US yields weighed on appetite. The currency markets were calm as well, with the US dollar giving back some field against most majors. The EURUSD consolidated above the 1.05 level. The spread between the Italian and German 10-year yields narrowed since the ECB announced that they will invent another financial instrument to deal with the diverging pace of rising yields between the core and the periphery. Elsewhere, Cable was bid above 1.22 as Brits are holding their breath before tomorrow’s inflation data, and the Aussie-dollar approached the 70 cents mark post-RBA minutes. We have certainly a couple of more hours of calm in the markets.

The Swiss National Bank surprised with a 50bp hike at yesterday’s monetary policy meeting and sent an important message to the market: the SNB is now shifting its focus to fight inflation, and partially abandon its battle to soften the Swiss franc. The franc soared raising the question of whether the Swiss franc is again a good candidate for safe haven appreciation. Elsewhere, stock markets were battered on Thursday, as the soft US data in the wake of a 75bp hike from the Federal Reserve (Fed) fueled the recession fears and triggered a heavy risk selloff. The barrel of US rebounded aggressively after hitting the $112 per barrel yesterday, as the oil bulls came back with a revenge, and the dollar weakness didn’t last long.

The Federal Reserve (Fed) will announce its latest rate decision today, but most of the wild ride is certainly done by now; the market fully prices in a 75bp hike at today’s decision. The aggressive rise in hawkish Fed expectations pushed the US 2-year yield to 3.45% on Tuesday. The 10-year yield flirted with 3.50%. The S&P500 lost another 0.38%, while Nasdaq eked out a small 0.20% gain, but after hitting a fresh low since November 2020. The US futures are in the positive this morning, but the market will likely remain tense until the Fed breaks the news that it hikes by 75bp. The updated economic projections and the dot plot have an important weight for future expectations. Bigger rate hikes from the Fed, and the soaring US dollar are certainly not a gift for other central banks. The US dollar is a base currency, and the rapid appreciation in the greenback increases the cost of the goods that the other countries negotiate in terms of US dollars on international markets, starting from oil and commodities. As a result, a stronger US dollar is a bigger inflation threat for the world. This is why, the hawkish Fed expectations have a bigger domino effect power on the rest of the world. The German 10-year yield continues pushing higher, and the EURUSD sees a decent support near the 1.04 threshold after the European Central Bank (ECB) announced an unscheduled meeting to discuss the market turmoil. Cable slipped below the 1.20 mark, and a 25bp hike from the Bank of England (BoE) may not suffice to compensate the hawkish Fed, and the renewed Brexit fears.   Watch the full episode to find out more! 0:00 Intro 0:27 The Fed decision 4:26 Market update 5:32 Gold, Bitcoin down 6:43 FedEx jumps & dividend paying stocks see higher interest 7:41 Expensive dollar threatens ECB, BoE 8:52 FTSE to feel the pinch of engdangered Brexit deal Ipek Ozkardeskaya has begun her financial career in 2010 in the structured products desk of the Swiss Banque Cantonale Vaudoise.

The Everything - except (US Dollar) USD and oil, selloff | MarketTalk: What’s up today? | Swissquote

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 14.06.2022 11:15
The post-US inflation selloff accelerated yesterday. All assets were heavily sold, and the money piled into the US dollar, as a sign of extreme stress in the market. Even though the US futures trade in the positive this morning, the risk sentiment is poor, and the fear of seeing the Federal Reserve (Fed) become more aggressive on its rate policy to tame inflation is omnipresent. The Fed will start its two-day meeting in this absolutely beautiful market environment, after having a hint the recent policy tightening to tame inflation has not worked effectively so far and more needs to be done. ‘More’ means a 75bp hike in one of the next three meetings. It could be today, it could be next month, or in two months. Cryptocurrencies took a severe hit on the combination of general market panic and industry-wise discomfort. Bitcoin dived below the $22K mark, confirming once again its high positive correlation with Nasdaq. Ethereum retreated below $1200 mark. The selloff in cryptocurrencies got certainly uglier on news that Celsius, which is one of the biggest crypto lending firms, stopped withdrawals, and even transfers between accounts, due to ‘extreme market conditions’. Gold dropped $60 per ounce, the US 2-10-year yield inverted, Cable and EURUSD extended losses.

Released Friday, the US CPI data unexpectedly advanced to 8.6% in May. The data slashed hope that inflation had peaked, and revived the hawkish expectations that the Federal Reserve (Fed) should get more aggressive if it wants to take control of inflation. The unexpected U-turn in US inflation number also removed the 3% speed bump on the US 10-year yield. The 10-year yield shot up to 3.20%, the S&P500 took an ugly dive after the US CPI data revived hawkish Fed expectations. The index lost near 2.90% on Friday, Nasdaq slumped more than 3.5%. Bitcoin tumbled to $25K and American crude slipped below the $120 per barrel, on fear that the Fed may not have a choice but to push the US economy into recession to tame inflation. In the FX, the US dollar is roaring again, and will likely soften before Wednesday’s FOMC meeting.

What if the US inflation didn't ease? | MarketTalk: What’s up today? | Swissquote

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 10.06.2022 15:14
European and US stocks declined yesterday and the futures hint at a bearish start in Europe. Inflation and recession fears take the upper hand, after the European Central Bank (ECB) raised its inflation significantly from 5.1% to 6.8% for this year, and cut the growth forecast, significantly as well, for this year and the next. But the rates remained unchanged, and Lagarde called for a 25-bp hike in July. As such, the ECB decision revived inflation and recession fears, but hardly the euro bulls. Due today, the US inflation data will be the major focus before the weekly closing bell. Investors are tense on the idea that we could see an ugly surprise, as energy prices keep rising and there has been an unexpected tick in used car prices in May. Elsewhere, crude oil eases, but natural gas prices tick higher on a fire at Texas LNG facility.

Today may be The Day of the year for the European Central Bank (ECB). The ECB will reveal its latest economic projections, and will likely announce a July rate hike at today’s meeting. But the hint of a July rate hike is not enough to boost the euro, as it is almost fully priced in. A hawkish surprise is necessary!

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 08.06.2022 10:11
US equities ended Tuesday session in the positive as the US 10-year yield stretching above the 3% mark acted like a speed bump. That’s relatively good news for the market, because it clearly shows that, even when the news is not great, the Federal Reserve (Fed) pricing doesn’t get much uglier when the 10-year yield goes above that 3% mark. Yet, high energy prices, World Bank cutting the global growth forecast and Target cutting its profit forecast weigh on sentiment and could rapidly reverse gains. Due today, the US oil inventories will be closely watched by oil traders. Forex & Bitcoin Price (USD) In the FX, the US dollar remains relatively strong before Friday’s inflation read, meaning that many investors are preparing to see a bad surprise. The EURUSD eases on the back of stronger US dollar, but the European Central Bank (ECB) hawks are certainly around the corner to limit the selloff before Thu’s policy announcement.

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 07.06.2022 11:02
Risk appetite wanes as the US 10-year yield stretches above the 3% psychological mark. The US stock indices failed to extend gains on Monday, as Friday’s strong jobs report ruled out the expectations that the Federal Reserve (Fed) would slow tightening as a result of heavier pressure on the economy. But the US 10-year may not push significantly above the 3% level! Today, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) raised the interest rates by 50bps to 0.85% while analysts were expecting an increase to 0.60%, and the European Central Bank (ECB) is expected to deliver a hawkish policy stance on Thursday’s meeting.

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 03.06.2022 11:08
Bad news was perceived as good news yesterday, and the US stocks reversed losses on the back of a significantly lower-than-expected ADP report, which showed that the US economy added the lowest number of private jobs since the pandemic recovery began. But, the Fed will certainly not change its mind on the soft jobs data. Due today, the US is expected to have added some 325’000 new nonfarm jobs in May, with a slower pay growth from 5.5 to 5.2%. It looks like a soft NFP figure could be interpreted as ‘good news’. But that optimism may not necessarily last long, if other factors like wages growth, and energy prices don’t hint at slower inflation. And speaking of energy, the surprise OPEC decision to increase production may be a turning point for global oil prices, and the war, as it is likely an important step for Saudi-US relationship. The US crude hasn’t reacted on the desired direction, but yesterday, the pricing was absurd, anyway.

US indices kicked off the new month on a negative note. The S&P500 fell 0.75% and Nasdaq closed 0.72% lower, on Jamie Dimon’s ‘hurricane’ warnings, a stronger-than-expected ISM manufacturing PMI, and higher-than-expected job openings, that fueled the hawkish Federal Reserve (Fed) expectations. The US 10-year yield bounced above the 2.90% mark, the dollar index gained, as gold tipped a toe below the 200-DMA, $1842 per ounce on the back of rising US yields. Bitcoin And US Tech   Bitcoin, on the other hand, fell as fast as it rose earlier this week, as investors’ appetite for risk fell sharply over the past sessions. And oh, Janet Yellen said she was ‘wrong’ about inflation, as the war in Ukraine was an unexpected event that sent the energy prices soaring and boosted inflation, and the Fed started shrinking the size of its balance sheet yesterday, and the QT should technically lead to a further steepening of the curve. On the bank research desk front, Morgan Stanley cut some big US tech outlooks, and Citi said they are sellers of rallies. On the data front, today’s ADP report is important, but unless we have a decent surprise, it’s mostly unlikely to give a fresh direction to the market. On the OPEC front, OPEC will likely stick to its production increase plan and won’t make miracles at this week’s meeting, but the Wall Street Journal reported that they could suspend the OPEC+ deal with Russia earlier than set.

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 01.06.2022 10:21
May is finally over, but inflation worries, the war, and high energy prices welcome the new month with us. Yesterday’s meeting between Joe Biden and Jerome Powell reminded investors that inflation is the policymakers’ primary concern, and both Biden and Powell will do anything in their power to fight soaring inflation. But high energy prices remain a major worry. The good news is that the kneejerk reaction in crude oil to European ban of Russian oil imports remained capped near the $120 mark. The bad news is, Russia started cutting off the gas of more European countries as a response to the European ban on its oil exports, pressuring energy prices higher. US futures hint at a positive start to the month, but the gains are vulnerable to inflation fears, geopolitical tensions, and the positive pressure in energy prices. On the individual front, AMC surfs on positive vibes from Top Gun Maverick, GameStop to release earnings, HP topped estimates, as Salesforce upgraded profit forecast. In the FX, the dollar index rebounds above the 102 mark this morning, but the upside potential will likely remain limited from here. Energy and commodity currencies look appetizing.

The US 10-year yield stabilized around the 2.75% mark, and the US dollar index is now back to its 50-DMA level, giving some sigh of relief to the FX markets overall. Bonds and Equities One interesting thing is that we observe that the equities and bonds stopped moving together since the 10-year yield hit 3% threshold, suggesting that investors started moving capital to less risky bonds if they quit equities, instead of selling everything and sitting on cash.

Fed minutes released on Wednesday weren’t as hawkish as many investors feared: the Fed deciders mostly agreed that inflation is too high and labour market is too tight and that they should raise the rates by 50bps for the next two meetings. But, there was no sign that the Fed would go down the 75bp hike road. US Indices, EUR/USD And Gold Price US indices gained for the second day as the FOMC minutes helped improving the investor mood. Nvidia jumped. But the futures are slightly in the negative at the time of writing, as the rally in energy prices certainly throw a shadow on the latest optimism, keeping the inflation worries tight, as the soaring energy prices are one of the major responsible for the skyrocketing inflation. The barrel of US crude rallied above the $115 mark, and consolidates above this level this morning. The US dollar continues softening, the EURUSD tests 1.0750 offers, gold remains bid above the 200-dma though with a fading positive momentum.

Fresh earnings from retailers were mixed. Abercrombie And Best Buy   Abercrombie took a hit after downgrading its sales outlook, leading to a nearly 30% plunge at yesterday’s session, Best Buy cut its guidance, though the new guidance was still better than the Wall Street estimates – which certainly helped saving the day for Best Buy, while Nordstrom rose its full-year forecast, as the company predicted shoppers will continue to shop despite higher prices.

The S&P500 just avoided to close in the bear market last Friday, but the index sank its teeth into the bear zone for the first time since the pandemic selloff, and fell for the seventh straight week, for the first time since 2001. US futures are in the positive this Monday, as some investors see opportunity in the actual market dip. But the trading conditions will likely remain choppy, and gains may remain short lived. In the medium run, there is a stronger case building for a further retreat in the S&P500 stocks.  Nvidia and Alibaba will certainly be under the spotlight! Investors now eye a return to the 3500/3600 range, according to the latest Bloomberg survey. In commodities, gold and oil are higher on Monday, as the US dollar is softer across the board. On the individual stock front, Didi shareholders ill certainly vote to quite the NYSE, and among companies that will report earnings this week, Nvidia and Alibaba will certainly be under the spotlight!

The US equities closed Thursday’s session in the negative following a choppy trading session, as investors’ hearts pounded between buying the dip, or selling further on recession fear. The US 10-year yield declined yesterday, and the sharp retreat in the US yields gave a boost to gold, raising question on whether the gold rally could be sustained, and if yes, how high could it extend. The dollar gave back gains, letting the EURUSD and GBPUSD rally, but the gains may remain short-lived if the dollar skew in market pricing continues. Tesla got kicked out of the S&P’s ESG index, which could have implications on its long-term price potential   On the individual stocks, news that Michal Burry opened a bet against Apple heated conversations about whether Apple is a good ‘short’.

Appetite hit hard by inflation warnings, recession fear | MarketTalk: What’s up today? | Swissquote

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 19.05.2022 11:37
Optimism in the market didn’t last long, and the US equities recorded their worst daily drop since almost two years; the S&P500 fell more than 4% lower yesterday, Nasdaq slumped more than 5% and the Dow slid more than 3.5%. The main catalyzers behind the move are always the same: the worry of high inflation, tighter Fed to fight the sky-high inflation, and the fear of recession. Disappointment US retailer results further dented appetite, Target lost near 25%, and Walmart is down by near 18% since Monday close. Michael Burry on the other hand goes after Apple, while big banks have their PTs set at or above the $200 a share. In the FX, the US dollar strengthened yesterday, gold was better bid, and Bitcoin proved been resilient to the latest Nasdaq rout. The Loonie gained yesterday, after the data revealed that the Canadian inflation hit a three-decade high of 6.8%.

The US equity markets rallied yesterday after taking over a positive session from the Europeans. However, the US retail sales data didn’t necessarily hint at slowing spending, and Jerome Powell didn’t say things that investors would normally like to hear. Powell’s words didn’t hit the investor appetite immediate, but mixed activity in US futures hint that appetite may not remain as strong in the coming sessions. In the FX, the US dollar eased from two-decade highs. Gold trades around the $1800 mark and crude oil bumps into solid topsellers approaching above the $115pb   The EURUSD rebounded past the 1.05 and Cable traded past 1.24. Yet, prospects of higher US rates, and the positive divergence between the Fed and other central banks should prevent the dollar from falling significantly. Eurozone’s final inflation data is due today, and should confirm a rise to 7.5% in April, an eye-watering number which should keep the European Central Bank (ECB) hawks and the euro bulls alert, and help the single currency consolidate its latest gains against the US dollar.

The selloff in US and European equities continued Monday, yet the size of the slide wasn’t alarming, and the Dow Jones index could even eke out a small 0.08% gain, as energy stocks led gains. Jitters around Elon Musk’s Twitter deal hammered the stocks price, yet again, and Amazon is testing an important 6-year support.

The dust seems to be settling in cryptocurrencies. Terra and Luna are now worth almost nothing but Bitcoin returned past the $30K, which is a sign that the confidence in the broader sector may have not been damaged as much as we first feared. European stocks opened in the green and US futures are pointing to the upside, yet volatility remains high, warnings that the wind could change direction rapidly, and the high volatility environment is more favourable for further losses than sustainable gains. European gas futures gained another 13% yesterday, and the pressure on energy prices remain clearly tilted to the upside   On the geopolitical front, the Europeans are going around their own sanctions against Russia by opening accounts with Gazprom bank to pay the Russian gas in exchange of rubles (!!), but the latest news suggest that Russia is now cutting the German gas as a retaliation to its sanctions. Of course, the Europeans have been quite bad in this poker game - they showed too openly how scared they were to lose the Russian gas that now, Russia is gaining the upper hand.

Disappointing US inflation data sent another shock wave to the US stock markets sending all major US indices tumbling on Wednesday. The S&P500 lost more than 1.5%, while Nasdaq tumbled more than 3%. Bitcoin slumped below the 2021 lows on the back of a broad-based risk-off selloff, and panic due to TerraUSD losing its dollar peg earlier this week.

Rising Inflation In The US Means Rising US Dollar (USD), Chinese COVID Policy Seems To Be Almost Impossible | US inflation, a make-or-break moment for investors! | MarketTalk: What’s up today? | Swissquote

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 11.05.2022 11:12
It’s D-day of the week: we will see whether inflation in the US started easing in April after hitting a four-decade high in March, and if yes, by how much. A soft inflation read will come as a relief that the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) efforts to tame inflation start paying off, but any disappointment could send another shock wave to the market. In the FX, the US dollar extended gains, despite the easing yields yesterday, as the risk-off flows continued supporting the greenback For now, activity on Fed funds futures give almost 90% chance for a 50-bp hike in FOMC’s June meeting; there is a lot left to be priced for a 75bp hike, if the data doesn’t please. To avoid pricing in a 75bp hike at next FOMC meeting, we must see an encouraging cooldown in inflation. In the FX, the US dollar extended gains, despite the easing yields yesterday, as the risk-off flows continued supporting the greenback.   The barrel of US crude tipped a toe below the $100 level on news that the Europeans softened their sanctions proposal against the Russian oil The levels against the majors like euro, yen and sterling remained flat, but the positive pressure in the dollar, combined with Turkey’s unconventional monetary policy start giving signs of exhaustion. The dollar-try advanced past the 15 mark, and the government asked institutions to make their FX operations within the most liquid trading hours. Two weeks ago, the bank had revised its regulations on banks' reserve requirements, applying them to the asset side of balance sheets in order to strengthen its macroprudential policy toolkit. The latter required reserves now pressure the overnight rates to the upside – suggesting that the unconventional policy is near limits. Energy are up and down… but mostly up. The barrel of US crude tipped a toe below the $100 level on news that the Europeans softened their sanctions proposal against the Russian oil, but oil is already above the $100 this morning. The upside potential is fading due to slower global growth prospects, and the Chinese lockdown. Read next: Stablecoins In Times Of Crypto Crash. What is Terra (UST)? A Deep Look Into Terra Altcoin.

The selloff in stocks, bonds, and Bitcoin deepened on Monday. Even commodities sank and crude oil tumbled more than 8% on the back of mounting worries of a seriously tighter, and potentially ineffective Federal Reserve (Fed) policy that would, to fight back the skyrocketing inflation, pull back support aggressively enough to cause recession. Goldman says the S&P500 could fall to 3600 in case of contraction. Another worry is that, even with a significantly tighter monetary policy, the Fed may not be able to tame inflation as much as desired. This is what the inflation expectations tell us. The S&P500 dive another 3.20% yesterday, as Nasdaq tanked another 4.30%. And money doesn’t flow to ‘safer’ US sovereign bonds, as investors are rapidly unloading the US treasuries as well, given the Fed is now letting its holdings mature to reduce the size of its balance sheet which went through the roof since the 2007 subprime crisis. The US 10-year yield hit 3.20% yesterday, the highest level since November 2018. Read next: Tech Stocks Plunging!?

The Federal Reserve (Fed) ‘magic’ didn’t last long, and the US stocks recorded the worst day of the year yesterday, after posting the biggest gains of the year the day before, under the pretext that the Fed wouldn’t raise the rates by 75bp. Bitcoin didn’t resist to the risk selloff and dived near $35500 mark for the first time since February. Even Gucci’s announcement that it would accept payments in cryptocurrencies couldn’t improve the mood. Energy stocks did better than their peers yesterday, as the barrel of US crude extended gains past the $110 on the back of timid production target increase from the OPEC, and the European plans to ban the Russian oil and gas gradually to the end of the year. Now, all eyes are on the US jobs data. Even though the Fed will turn a blind eye on softening jobs data in the coming months to focus on its fight against inflation, a strong NFP data could further revive the Fed hawks and the prospects of more aggressive Fed over the next couple of meetings, whereas a soft data could bring in some Fed doves.

Investors are holding their breath before today’s FOMC decision. The Federal Reserve (Fed) is expected to raise the interest rates by 50bp for the first time in two decades, and start reducing its balance sheet by $95 billion per month to tame the rising inflation in the US. While the 50-bp hike is fully priced in, there is a chance for the Fed to get more aggressive and hint at a 75bp hike in a future meeting, despite the economic indicators that start showing signs of slow down. Inverse ETFs on Treasuries are interesting for those willing to bet for higher US yields. Data-wise, the latest jobs data will throw light on what happened in the US jobs market in April, and the expectations are strong. It is, of course, not a surprise that we see the US dollar continue strengthening, as besides the tighter Fed expectations, the safe haven flows support the greenback in the actual high economic and high geopolitical risk environment.

Could strong earnings reverse the hawkish Fed moodiness | MarketTalk: What’s up today? | Swissquote

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 22.04.2022 16:15
Data confirmed yesterday that inflation in the Eurozone advanced to 7.4%, a tick lower than the 7.5% expected by analysts. Yet the German producer prices jumped more than 30% year-on-year in March, the fastest rise in 73 years. Although Christine Lagarde promised gradual tightening at the latest European Central Bank (ECB) meeting, the hawkish comments from the other members hint that the ECB may not wait too long before raising the interest rates to tame inflation.

Netflix dived more than 35% at yesterday’s trading session, as the unexpected announcement that the company lost 200’000 subscribers in the first quarter and lose 2 million more didn’t please investors although the latest quarterly revenue hit a record of $7.9 billion, up by $2.4 billion compared to the pre-pandemic levels. Is Netflix a buy? Why, and why not?

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 13.04.2022 10:38
US equity investors jumped on an emotional roller-coaster following the release of the inflation data in the US yesterday, yet the core inflation, which filters out the impact of volatile food and energy prices, came in at lowest since September, giving some hope to investors that inflation may soon hit a high and start easing, hence get the Fed to move less hurriedly for raising the interest rates. Perhaps a wishful thinking that helped the US equities gap higher at the open, but couldn’t cement gains as all three major US indices ended the session in the negative. Crude oil, which made a sharp U-turn and jumped above the $100pb level didn’t help. Apple could buy back $80-$90bn worth of stock & boost dividend by 5-10%   US equity futures are in the positive at the time of recording, hinting at a minor rebound at today’s session, but the high energy prices, the pandemic and the war, combined with the Fed’s tied hands can’t do much to boost the investor mood.

On Sunday, the results from the first round of the French presidential election showed that Emmanuel Macron obtained 27% of votes, closely followed by the right-wing Marine Le Pen, who got 24% support. The EURUSD gapped higher at the open as an early reaction to the French first round results that favoured a final Macron victory, but the pair rapidly paired gains to sink below the 1.09 level. The US dollar index remains strong at the start of a week which will probably print a further advance in both consumer and producer prices. European and US equity futures kicked off the week on a bearish note, as the barrel of US traded near $95pb, as Bitcoin fell to $42K on limited risk appetite.

Hawkish Vs. Dovish Predictions! Will Fed's Interest Rate Decision Become The Event Of May?

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 07.04.2022 12:35
The FOMC minutes gave the clarity that every investors was looking for: the Federal Reserve (Fed) will be scaling back its near $9 trillion balance sheet by $95 billion per month, more than a trillion dollars per year. On top, many Fed officials noted that ‘one or more 50-bps increases in the target range could be appropriate at future meetings, particularly if inflation measures remained elevated or intensified’. Stock and bond markets didn’t react well to the cruel hawkishness of the latest FOMC minutes. Three major US indices fell, but value names lost less than the growth stocks. Good news is, China announced it will step up monetary and US crude prices are back to the levels before the war. One of the major drivers of the pullback in oil prices is European reluctance to ban the Russian oil. In other commodities, gold remains little changed near the $1920 per ounce, and palladium is back to pre-war levels after having spiked by more than 80% in the first quarter.

USD, Coal And Crude Oil Price To Be Shaken Today? Russia-Ukraine To Shape The Markets Today - Vision Of Next Sanctions Is Here. Will FOMC Meeting Minutes Influence DXY?

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 06.04.2022 10:31
Federal Reserve (Fed) Governor Lael Brainard’s hawkish comments rocked the markets yesterday as she said that the next interest rate hikes should be more aggressive to tame the skyrocketing inflation in the US, and that the Fed could start reducing its near $9 trillion balance sheet as soon as next month, and at ‘a rapid pace’. Investors will be closely watching the Fed minutes today. There would be no surprise if the Fed hinted a 50-bp hike in the next meeting. Activity in Fed funds futures assess more than 75% chance to a 50-bp hike. Yet, what will really make the difference is the speed at which the Fed will shrink the balance sheet. And there is a big potential for a hawkish pricing on this front. In the FX, Brainard’s comments sent the US dollar rallying yesterday. The dollar index is now preparing to flirt with the 100 offers, the EURUSD sank below the 1.09 level as Cable pulled below the 1.31 mark, but if the Fed minutes doesn’t reveal a further hawkish surprise, we shall see the dollar give back the latest gains and the euro and the pound record a minor rebound. Else, the US and the Europeans are expected to announce a new round of sanctions today. EU is expected to announce a ban on Russian coal imports, but not on Russian oil and gas. The reduced risk of a European ban on Russian oil keeps the oil bulls contained.

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 04.04.2022 11:04
MarketTalk: What’s up today? | Swissquote Crude oil consolidates near the $100pb as the latest pandemic news from China and the massive US release from strategic reserves cool down the positive pressure, but there are uncertainties on whether the US could really release 1 million barrels per day for six months to keep oil prices under control. US futures are in the negative this morning, although the S&P500 ended last week on a last-minute rally. The rising US yields and the curve inversion make investors uncomfortable, and the Federal Reserve (Fed) hawks remain in charge before Wednesday’s FOMC minutes. Gold is under the pressure of higher US yields, and may not benefit from a renewed equity selloff, if the selloff is due to the rising yields. But geopolitical tensions could throw a floor under a further selloff, if geopolitical tensions escalate amid the West preparing to announce more sanctions against Russia. Elsewhere, Chinese stocks rally on news that China will let the US authorities access the full auditing reports of companies listed in the US.

Will Crude Oil Price Forecast For Next Week Be More Positive?

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 01.04.2022 10:23
Intense selloff in crude oil pulled the price of a barrel to below the $100pb level, which is the critical 50-DMA support to the latest crude rally. The question is, whether Washington could reverse the positive momentum in oil prices with its promise to release a million barrels of oil from the strategic reserves per day, for the next six months starting from next month. And oh, OPEC and Russia agreed on Thursday to increase the oil output modestly as widely expected, but more importantly, they dumped the International Energy Agency as a data source in a sign of worsening relations with the West. Falling oil prices couldn’t prevent a selloff in equities yesterday, as investors couldn’t stop worrying about the inversion of the 2-10 year curve, and the rumours of recession that come along with it. The S&P500 lost more than 1.50% yesterday, and Nasdaq failed to extend gains above the 200-DMA. Bitcoin retreats as failure to clear the 200-DMA resistance encourages some profit taking. On the data-front, the latest Caixin PMI manufacturing index fell below the 50 mark, showing that the Chinese manufacturing activity contracted in March as the latest measures to contain the Covid outbreak took a severe toll on the economic activity.

Inflation... Inflation in Spain came at a spitting distance to the 10% mark, and inflation in Germany shot up to 7.3% in March, compared to 6.3% expected by analysts and 5.1% printed a month earlier. The EURUSD extended gains to 1.1160 as the jaw-dropping inflation data from the Eurozone countries revived the European Central Bank (ECB) hawks, but the chief Christine Lagarde said that the ECB will only ‘move gradually to normalize policy in the face of raging inflation’. US crude tanked to $101 per barrel this morning on news that the United States is considering the release of up to 180 million barrels from its strategic petroleum reserve over several months to calm soaring crude prices, as OPEC and Russia are likely to stick to their existing deal to gradually increase oil production. Cheaper oil gives a positive spin to the equity markets this morning, but inflation worries keep the central bank hawks alert as the US yield curve inversion leads to heated discussions about a possible recession in the US. On the individual company front, Tesla is reported to have multi-year deals for nickel supply, and Apple wants to reduce its reliance to third parties for its financial products. On the data front, the latest jobs report showed that the US added 455000 new private jobs in March, in line with the expectations. The Q4 growth has been revised slightly lower to 6.9%.

MarketTalk: What’s up today? | Swissquote Risk appetite improved, equities extended rally as talks between Ukraine and Russia hinted at progress, with Russia retreating from Kyiv to concentrate its military efforts in the Donbas region. The de-escalation gave a sigh of relief to investors, although many, including Joe Biden remain skeptical regarding the pullback from Kyiv, that could be ‘limited and tactical’. US crude dived to the 50-DMA yesterday, but that critical support held strong, and the price of a barrel rebounded back above the $105 level. The short-term outlook remains positive and price pullbacks are still seen as interesting dip buying opportunities if the 50-DMA is not cleared. The three major US indices followed up on the European session gains on de-escalation of the situation in Ukraine, but the US 2-year yield caught up, and even briefly surpassed the 10-year yield for the first time since 2019. Rising US yields, and de-escalation in Ukraine weigh on gold prices. But, the curve inversion, nor rising inflation prevent US stock indices from extending gains and the meme stocks are on fire, with GameStop up by 158% in the past two weeks and AMC up by more than 160%.

Crude Oil Hitting $200 In 2022!? Bitcoin Price Climbing And Reaching High Levels

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 29.03.2022 11:05
US equities kicked off the week with gains; the Big Tech led gains, as oil stocks slumped following an almost 10% slump in crude oil prices. Many oil traders predict that the price of a barrel could reach $200 by the end of the year. Goldman Sachs warns that the barrel of crude at $200 would send the economy into recession. Nasdaq led gains on Monday, as the index recovered more than half of losses it made since the November selloff, when the Federal Reserve (Fed) hinted at steeper rate hikes and quantitative tightening. The Big Tech is, of course, pulling the index higher, as big tech companies, along with other big cap stocks, are now perceived as safe haven investments when bonds tumble on expectation of a steeper monetary policy normalization. The Bank of America even warns that the global debt weighted by world GDP is on course for its worst year since 1949. So, it’s not a surprise that Joe Biden wants deficit reduction that would be financed by the biggest tax increase in history in dollar terms. Elsewhere, Tesla jumps 8% after the latest SEC filing showed that company wants a stock split to pay its stakeholders stock dividend, Bitcoin turns positive for the first time this year and the US JOLTS data will certainly print another strong month of available jobs, that no one wants.

The week kicks off on a mixed note as US President Joe Biden called Putin a ‘butcher’ and said in a speech in Warsaw that ‘for God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power’. Then, the news that Shanghai is going to a phased lockdown didn’t help lifting the mood in Asia. Oil, which rallied last Friday on news of a drone attack on a Saudi storage facility, slumped again this morning below $110pb. OPEC+ will announce its latest decision this week. In the FX, the US dollar begins the week on strong footage, as the dollar index advances above the 99 mark on geopolitical tensions and the Fed hawks, but the flattening and the inversion of the yield curve bring about the worries of a recession in the US. The EURUSD slips below the 1.10 mark on the back of a stronger US dollar.

Crude Oil Prices Fluctuates, Biden Meets With The EU Leaders, MOEX Is Back

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 24.03.2022 15:11
Risk sentiment weakens as Joe Biden meets the EU leaders today. They are expected to announce new sanctions against Russia in the coming hours. There is a possibility of a ban on Russian oil imports to Europe. Uncertainties about Russian oil injects volatility in oil trading, and Russia now asks rubles in exchange of its energy and gas. Meanwhile, Russian market partially opens today, after but only 33 Russian company shares are allowed to trade for a shortened four-hour. The MOEX was up in the first hour of trading, but don’t be fooled by the early rally, because foreigners won’t allowed to sell their stake until April 1st, and short-selling is also banned. And because most of the market was made up of international investors, we will not get a clear picture of the valuations immediately.

Equities rallied and treasuries dived yesterday, as a sign that investors are cheering the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) plan to deal more aggressively with the skyrocketing inflation – which is certainly more toxic in the longer run than higher rates for the economic tissue. The S&P500 had another strong session yesterday gaining more than 1%, and Nasdaq rallied close to 2% as technology stocks led the rally. Tesla gained close to 8%, GameStop soared more than 30% as AMC gained 15%. Chinese stocks had another great day as well. Alibaba rallied 11% yesterday, and more than 55% since last week. Meanwhile, oil trading is hectic these days, as prices swing between those who rush to sell the top near the $115pb level, and those who rush to buy below $110pb. The news that Germany and Hungary are willing to put the brakes on a potential Russian oil embargo softens the bulls’ hands in the short run, as the long-term outlook remains positive.

The week kicks off on a mixed note after the global equities recorded their best week since 2020. Hopes of a diplomatic progress and the Fed hawkishness were pointed as the major catalyzers of the positive move, while there is little to be optimistic about diplomacy in Ukraine, and a tighter monetary policy in the US. Meanwhile, the flattening, and inversion of the US yield curve hints at challenging times ahead. So, does it mean that investors are willing to go long no matter what? Maybe, but picking the right stocks will be more important than ever. For now, energy and commodity stocks, those who pay good dividend and food stocks are among investors’ darlings.

US stocks gained on Thursday, as the European indices are back to pre-war levels, yet the sentiment remains mixed. There is relief after Russia avoided default on its interest payment, yet oil prices jump again, and boost inflation expectations and central bank hawks. Except in Japan, which saw inflation surge to a 3-year high, but which remains soft enough to bring the Bank of Japan to say that they would ease more if necessary. Elsewhere, the US dollar is broadly softer, the EURUSD tests the 1.11 offers, the USDTRY is contained after Turkey’s ridiculous decision to keep the policy rate at 14%, and Cable remains under pressure amid the Bank of England statement was perceived as more dovish than expected yesterday. Rising oil and commodity prices and a cheap pound are supportive of the energy and mining heavy FTSE 100 index. In the US, major indices traded in the green yet investors brace for a highly volatile session, as it’s the triple witching day, where a large number of options are set to expire, and there is an unusual amount of near-the-money options that could exacerbate the trading volumes and cause high volatility before the weekly closing bell.

Chinese stocks had their best day since 2008 yesterday, as the government said it will ease the crackdown, support property and technology stocks and stimulate economy. Nasdaq’s Golden Dragon China index gained close to 33%, yet risks prevail: we are still in a China that is no longer the land of opportunity of before Xi Jinping. Plus, US maintains a hardline on the Chinese listings in the US, insisting that the companies listed in the US should provide complete access to audits, with the threat of getting de-listed if they don’t comply. The Federal Reserve (Fed) raised its interest rate by 25bp as expected for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, and more importantly, said that the rate hikes will continue to tame inflation as the US economy looks strong enough to withstand a rapid normalization to avoid pushing the Fed into a darker stagflation environment. The kneejerk reaction to the decision was an early selloff then a strong rebound.The question is, could it last? Elsewhere, Bitcoin remained stoic despite a broad based risk rally, while the US dollar eased allowing the EURUSD trade above 1.10, and Cable above 1.31.

Rapid decline in oil prices came as a relief to the European stock markets yesterday, yet the lack of diplomatic progress on the Ukrainian war and China’s fresh lockdown to stop the omicron contagion weigh on investors sentiment. Apple shares dived more than 2.50% on Monday, on news that supplier Foxconn had to stop activity in Shenzhen for at least a week. The S&P500 confirmed a death cross formation, and Nasdaq stepped into correction territory. The crude price plunge below the $100pb came as a relief in the middle of a sea of bad news, but it will certainly not prevent the German ZEW sentiment index from freefalling from 48 to 10 in March. What’s next? The downside correction in oil prices is sure a relief when it comes to the inflation expectations, but the new lockdown measures will continue worsening the supply chain crisis and add on the inflation worries. The US producer price data is about to confirm an advance to 10% level in February, as the FOMC starts its two-day meeting today and is expected to raise the interest rates by 25bp for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic.

US crude is down by more than 3% despite the escalating tensions in Ukraine, the US dollar is preparing to test the 100 mark, while the S&P500 is now headed to a death cross formation on its daily chart. This week, the US PPI could confirm an advance to 10%, and the Fed, which is expected to raise rates by 25bp could show some more concern about the rising inflation. The Bank of England (BoE) is also seen rising the bank rate, while the Bank of Japan and the Central Bank of Turkey are expected to maintain the status quo. The surge in nickel prices jeopardize the optimism that rising fuel prices would quicken the electric transition. Tesla shares closed the week below the $800 mark, and the downside risks prevail.

The week starts with a 10% rally in US crude prices after the US Secretary of state Blinken said that the US and its allies now consider an embargo on the Russian oil. The market mood is red, again, this Monday. Cutting off the Russian oil will increase the positive pressure on oil prices and will likely send the price of a barrel above $150 in the foreseeable future. The extended rally in oil and commodity prices will likely bring the European economies to ration consumption and weigh on the economic recovery and the corporate earnings in 2022. European indices are severely down at the open. US equities are also poised to open in the red.

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 03.03.2022 11:11
The possibility of another round of discussion between Russia and Ukraine and Jerome Powell’s more dovish than expected testimony saved the day for equity investors yesterday. The S&P500 rallied 1.86%, while Nasdaq gained 1.62% on Wednesday, but the 50-DMA finally crossed below the 200-DMA confirming a long-awaited death cross formation on Nasdaq’s daily chart. Elsewhere, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence, the short interest against the energy stocks has peaked to the highest levels in more than a year, as the latest rally in global energy stocks ‘may be petering out, even with oil prices surging to their highest levels since 2014’. But US and Brent crude continue their jaw-dropping advance this morning as OPEC+ decided to maintain its production target unchanged at 400’000 extra barrels per day from April. Among safe havens, demand in US dollar remains strong.

Markets are trading with increased volatility and the price moves become unpredictable. Risks remain tilted to the downside, and price rallies may remain short-lived. The direct impact of the Ukrainian crisis to US equities could be limited, but the indirect impact, which is the rising energy prices could take a severe toll. This is why the war’s biggest threat to the American companies is inflation. The barrel of US crude traded above the $100 mark yesterday then eased back to around $96 as Joe Biden said the US will release its strategic oil reserves to ease the pressure at the pump. Also, there is increased possibility of a nuclear deal with Iran to unlock the Iranian oil potential - which would provide up to 800’000 barrels of additional supply per day.

The week starts with some comfort regarding the Ukrainian crisis on news that Biden and Putin agreed to meet. US futures are in the positive after having closed the week on a bearish tone. Gold traded a touch below the $1910 this morning but eased below the $1900 mark on encouraging Ukraine-Russai news. Oil slipped below the $90 per barrel on Friday and is now steady a touch above that level. In Switzerland, the sentiment is soft due to the Swiss Secrets that broke in over the weekend. The latest news will likely weigh on Credit Suisse and send a broader shockwave to the Swiss bank, but the medium-term implications for the other Swiss banks should remain limited. US indices closed last week on a negative note. The S&P500 slid 0.72% and Nasdaq lost 1.23%. Nasdaq is now walking with big steps toward a death cross formation on its daily chart, which could further increase the bearish pressure on the stock price. The macro environment isn’t necessarily supportive of the equity markets this year. The hawkish Fed expectations, an imminent rate hike, combined with the prospects of an early and maybe an aggressive shrinking of the Fed’s balance sheet are not appetizing for risk investors.

Good mood didn’t last long as the US didn’t let the tensions de-escalate insisting that Russia is certainly not pulling back its troops but is rather increasing its presence at the Ukrainian border. The US warning hit the investor appetite at yesterday’s session and reversed the earlier week gains in stock indices.

US equities were soft but the S&P500 erased a part of losses at a late-session rally after the release of the Federal Reserve (Fed) minutes, the pricing on the fed funds front flipped to give more chance for a 25bp hike in March, instead of a 50-bp hike.

Awaiting FOMC, Having A Look At Nasdaq, Oil and Gold

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 16.02.2022 10:28
Investors loved the sound of peace and the risk appetite came back yesterday as Russians started pulling a part of their troops back from the Ukrainian border. Although, news of a cyber-attack on some Ukrainian banks and some government websites including the defense ministry’s website raised a couple of eyebrows again, and turned all eyes to the Russians. But there is no report suggesting that Russia is behind the cyber-attack just yet. Oil fell as much as 4% yesterday on de-escalation news. Gold dropped 35 dollars, as the safe haven money poured into the risk assets. European and US indices rallied. But, released yesterday, the US producer inflation data came in as a bad surprise, yet again. With the looming inflation worries, let’s see if today’s FOMC minutes will kill that joy. Hopeful news is that the latest Fed decision was more hawkish than expected, and the minutes could smooth out a part of the extra hawkishness.

Reviewing Effects Of Easing The Conflict And Awaiting US PPI

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 15.02.2022 13:24
There is a certain relief in the Ukraine-Russia crisis as the two sides seem willing to continue their diplomatic efforts to avoid a military action. The latter could help reversing a part of yesterday’s aggressive selloff in the European markets, and the FTSE 100 could outperform its peers on the back of firm energy and oil prices. Base case: no war Ukrainian president criticized news giving a date for a potential Russian invasion and said that it could eventually drop its dream to become part of NATO, as a powerful sign of its commitment to de-escalate the tensions at its Russian border. US producer prices: The S&P500 slid 0.38% and closed just near the 4400 mark, the Dow dropped near 0.50%, as Nasdaq closed Monday’s session flat. Today, the inflation talk continues with the US producer prices due later in the session. Analysts expect a certain easing in the PPI index to 9.1% from last month’s surprise to 9.7%. Given the rise in oil and commodity prices, there is a higher chance of seeing a positive than a negative surprise. Any positive surprise could send the PPI index above the 10% psychological mark and keep the bears in charge of the market, regardless of a more hopeful mood due to the diplomatic efforts between Russia and Ukraine.

Russia And Ukraine Conflict Fuelling Markets. Awaiting The US PPI And UK Inflation Indicators

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 14.02.2022 11:11
The week starts on quite a tense note as the tensions between Ukraine and Russia don’t seem to be headed in the right direction with reports on Friday hinting at the possibility of a Russian invasion before ‘the end of the Beijing Olympics’. European equities are deep in the red, with FTSE 100 somehow doing less bad than the others on rising energy and commodity prices, but the Euro Stoxx is already down 2.33% and the DAX by 2.85%. US crudes flirts with the $95 per barrel, and gold welcomes decent safe-haven capital. While US sovereigns, energy and gold are the favorite destinations for those who are seeking protection in the actual environment, any relief on the Ukrainian front could send the recent gains in oil and gold crumbling. On the economic agenda: US PPI and FOMC minutes will be closely watched. We know that engineering a policy that would bring inflation down to the 2% target in the US would also bring an unnecessary stress on the market and on the economy.

Thursday’s data showed that consumer prices in the US advanced from 7.0% to 7.5% in January, more than 7.3% penciled in by analysts. The Fed hawks came back in charge aggressively following the US inflation print as St Louis President Bullard said he’d ‘like to see 100 basis points in the bag by July 1’. All three major US indices were moody yesterday, but Nasdaq led losses as it’s the most sensitive to the rate changes. Rising hawkish noises from the Federal Reserve (Fed) backed the US dollar. The EURUSD is back below the 1.14 mark and Christine Lagarde insists that acting too fast could choke the economy’s recovery, but not acting at all will choke the economy, as well.

Risk sentiment improves both in the European and the American stock markets since yesterday, thanks to the abating sovereign bond selloff. Financials and mining stocks took the lead, small caps outperformed their big cap peers, with Russell 2000 bouncing 1.63%, whereas gains in the major US indices remained between 0.85% and 1.30%. US crude slipped below the $90 per barrel although the weekly API data suggested a 2-million barrel decline in the US inventories versus the expectation of a 400’000 barrel build. JP Morgan says they have a magic indicator that says it's time to jump on the back of a bull, but CAUTION! Improved sentiment is put on the back of more optimism about reopening, meanwhile the hawkish Fed expectations and the rising yields continue being a serious threat to the actual gains, as the major triggers behind the latest bond selloff are still in play.

US futures traded flat in the overnight trading session, as the Federal Reserve (Fed) hawks came back in charge following strong job additions, and solid wages growth in the latest US jobs data. This week the attention will shift from corporate earnings to macroeconomic data, more specifically to latest US consumer price index that could have advanced to 7.3% in the US in January. Fear of a stronger inflation will likely keep the investor appetite limited until the data release. Chinese stocks rallied as Chinese investors returned from a week-long Lunar New Year break, and they had some gains to catch up with. Plus, the better-than-expected Caixin services PMI offered a roaring start to the Tiger Year, but the rest of Asia looks much less promising with stock in Japan, Hong Kong and Australia trading in the red due to the stronger hawkish Fed expectations.

Yesterday’s ADP data showed that the US economy lost some 300’000 private jobs in December, versus 185’000 job additions expected by analysts, but no one cared. Google jumped by more than 7% yesterday to a fresh record high on the back of strong earnings. Nasdaq gained for the fourth consecutive session adding another 0.50% to its gains. But don’t uncork the champagne just yet! Because the Nasdaq futures are trading more than 2% lower at the time of writing. Disappointing Facebook results, and a 23% plunge in Meta shares in the afterhours trading calls for a red session in the US. Amazon is the last FAANG stock to announce earnings today, and the company is expected to reveal a second consecutive month of earnings decline. Ouch. Inflation in the Eurozone hit 5.1% in December. So, all eyes are on Christine Lagarde and what she has to say at today’s press conference. Will she insist that inflation is transitory or will she finally accept the defeat, and call it a problem? Across the Channel, the Brits will probably raise their interest rates by another 25bp for the second time at today’s meeting.

US stocks gained for the third consecutive session, and the gains seemed more stable this time as the VIX index retreats. The Federal Reserve (Fed) storm is coming to an end, with most hawkish expectations already factored in the asset prices, and the strong corporate earnings help equities bind up their wounds. We have two important events on today’s macro calendar: the OPEC meeting and the US ADP report. OPEC will discuss whether and by how much they should increase its oil output at today’s meeting. But whatever happens, crude prices are poised for an advance towards the three-digit levels in the coming months given that global glut declines faster than expected due to a stronger recovery in demand, and ongoing supply constraints. And the US jobs figures don't really matter.

The S&P500 finished January with a strong two-day rally, but the index is still more than 5% lower than where it kicked off the year, having recorded its worst month since March 2020. Nasdaq closed yesterday’s session up by more than 3% for the second day in a row. Nasdaq is already up by almost 9% from the January dip. Yet, 3-4% gains are often sign of high volatility and stress, and they could easily melt down in no time. What we need to see now is smaller but more sustainable gains to call the end of the January selloff. Good news is that the Federal Reserve (Fed) officials start sending softer messages and the hawkish pricing is mostly done, which could lead to some more recovery in US stocks, especially of the upcoming earnings are strong, and in Bitcoin.

US stocks recorded a last-minute rally on Friday, but gains remain on jeopardy as the hawkish Fed expectations and the Russia-Ukraine tensions are weighing on the risk appetite.

The consensus now is that the Fed would raise the interest rates five times this year. In this environment, US dollar is certainly a good place to park, while gold is doing surprisingly poorly despite having most factors that would normally support a better pricing on its side.

US equities went from gains to losses, yet again, as the Ukrainian tensions, which support the rally in energy prices, and by doing so further boosts the inflation expectations and the Fed hawks didn’t do good to the overall market mood. US dollar extended rally as the US yields continued pushing higher. The EURUSD slipped below the 1.12 mark.

In equity news, Tesla tanked more than 11% yesterday, as investors focused on the warnings that chip shortage could take a toll on performance this year, rather than the record-high profits (which were already factored in the stock price).

The S&P500 and Nasdaq dived 4% before reversing losses and closing the session in the green. But yesterday’s rebound doesn’t mean the equity markets are out of the woods just yet. On the contrary, the rising volatility hints at further market turbulence ahead, as investors are worried about the Fed tightening, the Ukrainian war threat, and some unachieved goals on Biden’s political agenda as the Build Back Better & Chinese trade deficit. The FOMC starts its two-day meeting today, yet given the bloodbath in equity markets, the policymakers could refrain from reviving the Fed hawks. But even with an eventually softer Fed statement, and some market correction, there is a slim chance we see meme stocks, SPAC deals, or highly speculative names doing well in an environment of tighter Fed liquidity. There is, on the other hand, a better chance for companies like Apple and Microsoft to navigate through a high turbulence market.

Netflix Stock Price Falls Down, Bitcoin - As Well, What About Nasdaq 100? - Swissquote's MarketTalk

Swissquote Bank Swissquote Bank 21.01.2022 10:40
We saw a second day of gains then losses in major US indices. The stocks first rallied on the idea that the Federal Reserve (Fed) hawks may have gone ahead of themselves with the pricing of a 50bp rate hike in March, then gave in to the bad thoughts. Nasdaq was trading almost 2% higher when the wind turned direction abruptly, sending the index below its 200-DMA. Is this the beginning of a further dive? Possible… What’s sure is Netflix will feel the pinch of lower subscription growth forecast at the open as the stock price dived 20% in the afterhours trading. Zooming out. The Fed must fight back inflation because it’s gone just too far to threaten the economic health of the country, but they can’t do it with heavily hemorrhaging financial markets. Therefore, the idea of 50bp is certainly far stretched, and the corresponding pricing should be scaled back, which should give a certain relief to the risk assets in the coming sessions. But of course, the corporate earnings must be strong, as the actual Big Tech pricing reflects a fantastic earnings growth for the coming quarters, and investors won’t settle with anything less than fireworks. Elsewhere, Bitcoin fell below $40K on the back of an overall lack of risk appetite, and the news that Russia wants to ban the use and the mining of cryptocurrencies.

Market mood turned sour in the US trading yesterday, and the latest data showed that 4.5 million Americans quit their jobs in November. 4.5 million is a lot of job departures, but there is nothing the Federal Reserve (Fed) could do about it, as the root cause of the problem is not the lack of job openings. Today’s ADP data is expected to reveal that the US economy added 400’000 private jobs in December. That would be less than a tenth of what has been lost in November. So the question is, does the jobs data even matter anymore? US equity indices retreated yesterday, and yesterday’s price action is mostly driven by higher interest rate expectations. In the forex, the US dollar remains strong, and that strength is pushing the EURUSD below the 1.13 mark. The sterling bulls, however, defend well their territory against a broadly stronger US dollar and a push above the 100-DMA, near the 1.3560 mark, should throw a basis to a medium term bullish reversal in Cable. In cryptocurrencies, appetite in Bitcoin remains contained near the 200-dma and the coin is testing the low end of the December horizontal channel base, which is near $45K level. One explanation for the lack of appetite is the rising US yields, which are applying a visible downside pressure on the pricing of cryptocurrencies. And gold is now trading above both its 50, 100 and 200-DMA, but the positive attempt to the $1830 level remained short-lived. It will be interesting to see how the rising US yields, which increases the opportunity cost of holding the non-interest-bearing gold, will play out in the coming months for gold investors.

New Year and a fresh record for the S&P500! The index kicked off the year with a first minute goal after recording 70 closing highs in 2021. Nasdaq rallied 1.20% at the first trading session of the year, as Apple finally hit the $3 trillion valuation and Tesla jumped 13.5% after reporting breath-taking car sales last quarter and last year. Globally, there is a lot of news regarding the rising omicron cases, but there is also a lot of news that the omicron cases are not as deadly as the previous variants of Covid. And investors prefer focusing on a glass half full rather than a glass half empty at the start of the year. In currencies, the US dollar remains in demand, the US dollar index is bid above the 50-dma, which is somewhere near 95.60, and the USDJPY surged to the highest levels since 2017, but the positive trend could soon run out of breath, as suggests the historical data. Bitcoin on the other hand remains stoic faced with a strong risk appetite, and consolidates below its 200-dma. Finally, US crude is pushing higher above its 50-dma before today’s OPEC decision, where no surprise is expected. OPEC countries have rather a positive outlook for oil demand in the coming months as they focus on the recovery and reopening rather than on hundreds of flight cancellations and the restricted economic activity of the moment due to the omicron wave.
