FX News Today

FX Action: Both the Dollar and the Yen have risen against most other currencies, with the Japanese currency outperforming its North American counterpart. This comes amid a risk-off backdrop, with Asian stock markets having come under pressure following a firm start. Japan’s Nikkei 225 declined 1% at its close, while the Shanghai Composite reversed out of an AM-session gain, and is presently at its lows and showing a 0.6% loss in the second hour of the PM session. EURUSD and EURJPY have ebbed to respective one-week lows of 1.1691 and 131.67. USDJPY edged out a three-day low at 112.60, while EURJPY posted a one-week low at 131.77. AUDJPY, which has been the biggest mover out of the main Dollar pairings and associated cross rates, also traded at one-week lows with a loss of 0.5%. Focus will now fall on Italy. There have been reports that a Cabinet meeting is scheduled today to finalize the Economic and Financial Document after being postponed “due to new complications” as the coalition government struggles to find common ground over the budget. This issue, if unresolved, has the potential to send the Euro sharply lower.

Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields lost earlier gains and are down 0.9 bp at 3.039%, 10-year JGB yields declined -0.3 bp to 0.110% and bonds were generally sought as stock markets declined. Wall Street turned negative late in the session following the FOMC meeting, which hiked rates as expected and removed the “accommodative” language. At the same time the “neutral” rate was lifted and Fed continues to pencil in another move this year, and three more for 2019, with Powell saying that Fed could raise rates past the neutral level. Topix and Nikkei are down -0.81% and -0.54% respectively, Hang Seng and CSI 300 declined -0.27% and -0.32% and the ASX lost -0.19% so far. US stock futures are trying to move higher though, indicating that investors will quickly recover from the Fed statement that is, in some ways, ambiguous for the markets. Oil prices are higher and the front end Nymex future is trading at USD 72.34 per barrel.

FX News Today

FX Action:USDJPY has settled around 113.00, above the eight-session low printed yesterday at 112.82. Ranges have been narrow in currency markets, despite risk appetite remaining firmly on the negative side of the dial. The MSCI Asia-Pacific (ex Japan) Index hit a 17-month low. The IMF cut its growth forecasts for both this year and next, including downgrades of the outlooks for the US, Europe and China. PBoC set the USD-CNY reference rate at 6.9019. Often times, such a backdrop would see the Yen appreciate, though the rise in US over Japan yield differential appears to be providing offsetting support for USDJPY. The 10-year US Treasury yield has today lifted to a fresh 7-year highs above 3.25%.

Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields are up 0.5 bp at 3.239%, Treasury yields climbed 0.1 bp to 0.146%, while stocks traded mixed during the Asian session. Chinese and Hong Kong markets stabilized after yesterday’s sharp correction in Chinese stocks that were partly driven by catch up trades. A stronger Yen meanwhile weighed on Japanese equities. IMF warnings on the global growth outlook meanwhile lifted pressure on bonds, although the IMF referred mainly to growth outside the US and tax cut fuelled expansion in the US will continue to keep the Fed on a tightening path. Still, some are expecting BoJ to act more aggressively to curb the uptick in long yields. Topix and Nikkei are currently down -1.84% and -1.30% respectively. The ASX fell -0.97% though, and U.S. stock futures are also down while oil prices climbed higher and the front end Nymex future is trading at USD 74.67 per barrel.

The Hang Seng is up 0.49% though and Topix and Nikkei gained 0.24% and 0.10% as tech stocks stabilized after a three day rout.

Stock futures are mostly lower in Europe and marginally higher in the US after a mixed session in Asia. Italian fiscal jitters and Brexit developments remain in focus, while the data calendar also livens up today with production numbers out of France and the UK.

FX News Today

European Fixed Income Outlook: 10-year Bund yields are down -5.5 bp at 0.495% in opening trade, French yields down -4.6 bp and most peripheral yields are also down as the stock market rout deepened during the Asian session. Italian BTPs are once again the exception and the 10-year yield backed up 2.3 bp to 3.523% amid ongoing fiscal concerns. Elsewhere bond markets are being supported though as investors dump equities amid growing concerns about earnings and the global outlook as trade tensions increasingly show up in earnings reports. European stock futures are down 1.4-1.9% in early trade, underperforming versus US futures, which are down 0.7-0.8% at the moment. Italy and Brexit developments will remain in focus today, while the data calendar focuses on inflation data out of France, Spain, Sweden. Released overnight, the UK RICS house price balance fell back to 2% from 1% in the previous month.

FX Action: USDJPY has posted a 3-week low at 111.97, and EURJPY and AUDJPY have both seen 1-month lows. Yen outperformance, although relatively moderate, drove the moves amid a backdrop of plunging stock markets, which has seen the Japanese currency pick up safe haven demand. Wall Street saw its worst day in over eight months yesterday, with the USA500 closing with a 3.3% loss, and USA500 futures have extended lower by a further 1% in overnight trading with Asian markets hit hard. Japan’s Nikkei is down 4.4% heading into the Tokyo close while the Shanghai Composite is off by 4.6% in the first hour of trading after the lunch break. The rise in US and global yields over the last week, which has come amid signs that inflation is making a return, is getting principal blame in market narratives (while Trump blamed the “crazy” Fed), in what seems like a post-financial crises watershed. The consequences of trade protectionism is also in the mix.

FX News Today

FX Action: USDJPY has lifted to the 112.30-40 area after posting a 25-day low at 111.83 during the late New York PM session yesterday. The low was followed by broad Dollar declines in the wake of the softer than expected US CPI data yesterday, which has taken the edge out of Fed tightening expectations. Gains in USDJPY in Tokyo, however, have reflected broader Yen weakness, which has seen safe-haven premium unwind as stocks in Asia stabilize, with S&P 500 futures managing gains of more than 1.2%, after the cash index closed on Wall Street with a 2.1% decline. EURJPY and most other Yen crosses have also lifted. In the news today, a 5.3 earthquake hit Japan’s Kanto region, which is reportedly manageable for Japan. No tsunami warning has been issued. A senior official from the IMF, which today started its annual meeting in Bali, said that it was “too early” for Japan to talk about normalizing monetary policy while encouraging Tokyo to make structural reforms to accompany the stimulus.

Asian Market Wrap: 10-year Treasury yields moved up from yesterday’s lows and gained 2.9 bp to reach 3.178%. 10-year JGB yields are unchanged at 0.136%, as stock markets bounced back in Asia and the MSCI Asia Pacific Index moved up from the lowest level since May 2017, led by bourses in Hong Kong and South Korea. As of 05:24GMT Topix and Nikkei were still down -0.35% and -0.34% respectively, but the Hang Seng bounced 1.67% and the CSI 300 was up 1.30%. Shanghai Comp and Shenzen Comp still declined at the start of the session, but are now at 0.53% and -0.06% respectively after a better than expected trade surplus. Kospi and Kosdaq are up 1.98% and 3.06% and the ASX gained 0.20%. Sentiment remains fragile, but US stock futures are posting gains of more than 1% so it seems markets are closing a very volatile week on a less pessimistic note. With central banks on course to end stimulus and Fed Chairman Powell stressing last week that the central bank is a “long way” from neutral rates, concerns remain that the Fed may tighten too much and the IMF warning about the impact of a tightening of financing conditions markets will be struggling to find a new equilibrium, with overreactions also likely as a result of heightened uncertainties. This leaves a wide range of possible outcomes for the world economy.
