    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 8th April 2019.


    [​IMG]

    FX News Today

    * 10-year Treasury yields are down -1.1 bp at 2.485% and 10-year JGB yields fell back -2.9 bp to -0.069%.

    * Stock markets failed to get lasting support from China stimulus hopes and the rebound in US payrolls on Friday. Indices climbed initially after a document published on the central government website yesterday suggested Beijing would step up the policy of targeted cuts to banks’ reserve ratios in a bid to encourage lending to small and medium sized companies.

    * However, while the ASX still managed to close 0.54% higher, Chinese bourses erased earlier gains and Hang Seng and Shanghai Comp are down -0.03% and -0.87% respectively, while the CSI 300 blue chip index is down -0.75%. Topix and Nikkei also struggled and lost -0.42% and -0.25%.

    * Earnings reports are coming into focus and investors are positioning for lacklustre results.

    * US futures are also heading south, which suggests a correction from the six month high seen last week after the employment report. President Trump pressured the Fed to do more to sustain growth, while official comments from both sides suggest progress in trade talks.

    * Oil prices are higher and the front end WTI future trading at USD 63.33 per barrel, amid concerns that fighting in Libya could lead to supply outages.

    Charts of the Day

    [​IMG]

    Technician’s Corner

    * EURUSD moved in a downwards channel on Friday and early today, and has bounced off its 200HMA at 1.1230, although trading around it in the past couple of hours. Support still remains at 1.1213, while Resistance, after the 200HMA stands at 1.1233. Indicators are showing mixed signals.

    * GBPUSD gained some on the last trading hours, bouncing off the 1.3067 Resistance, although the overall trend is still down. Support remains at 1.3027. The MACD is registering positive signs as the Stochastics are showing negative.

    * USDJPY made a significant downwards move as the Japanese trade balance showed a surplus, compared to expectations of a deficit. After breaking through the 111.68 Support, the pair bounced off 111.34, as indicators are showing positive signs.

    * XAUUSD broke clear of the 1294.5 Resistance level, and is currently trading just above its 200HMA, at 1296. Next Resistance level is 1300.

    Main Macro Events Today

    * Factory Orders (USD, GMT 14:00) – February orders are expected to have declined by 0.6% m/m, compared to a 0.1% increase in January.

    • US futures are narrowly mixed while European stock markets are underpinned.
    • Japanese markets are closing for 10 consecutive days from April 27 to May 6, inclusive.
    • After the strong first quarter earnings report from JPMorgan on Friday the focus is now turning to Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and Bank of America.
    • The front end WTI future is trading at $63.53 per barrel.

    Technician’s Corner
    • EURUSD keeps trading close to 3-week highs of 1.1323. Stochastics, RSI and the MACD show signals of further improvement intraday. Next Resistance point holds at 1.1330.
    • GBPUSD pulled back under 1.3100 after leaving a high at 1.3120. It is supported from the confluence of 200-period EMA and PP level the past 7 consecutive hours, at 1.3084. Next Support is set at 1.3065.

    Main Macro Events Today
    • FOMC Member Evans Speaks – Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans is due to speak in a television appearance on CNBC’s Squawk Box.
    • BOC Business Outlook Survey – The BoC’s outlook survey is expected to show an economy still moving along at a decent pace, but facing a number of challenges. This is a key report for the upcoming BoC announcement and MPR, as the Bank makes frequent references to the findings of the survey. A survey consistent with modest but still respectable growth, well contained inflation expectations and an unwinding in capacity pressures would line-up with our expectation for no change in rates later this month and through year-end.
    • Empire State index – It is estimated to jump to 9.0 in April from a 2-year low of 3.7 in March.
