Daily Report on August 28, 2017



Asian shares were struggling for direction on Monday while European stocks were under pressure as the euro continued to trade higher to hit its highest level against the dollar in more than two years. Trading volumes was lighter than usual in the European trading session as trading was closed on the FTSE 100 due to the fact that the U.K. observed the August Bank Holiday.

Dragged down by a stronger yen that had surged to as high as 119.016 in early trade, the Nikkei Stock Average was down 0.1% before paring losses to close roughly flat. The Topix closed 0.2 percent higher. The Shanghai Composite Index also traded higher, jumping 0.7% on the back of gains in financial stocks. The Hang Seng Index in Hong Kong added less than 0.1 percent.

By contrast, Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 index declined 0.6 percent and South Korea’s Kospi index fell 0.4 percent. New Zealand’s NZX 50 index was also on a slide, dropping nearly 0.4 percent. With no sector traded higher, the Stoxx Europe 600 Index plunged by 0.5 percent to trade at the lowest in six months on a closing basis. Germany’s DAX Index fell 0.7 percent.

Oil prices edged lower on Monday with U.S. West Texas Intermediate shedding around 1 percent on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Energy markets digested the impact of Hurricane Harvey, which is the most powerful hurricane to hit Texas in more than 50 years, on the U.S. Gulf Coast amid concerns that U.S. refinery shutdowns could reduce demand for American crudes

Recent moves sent the market into the overbought zone, as indicated by RSI index that has surged to as high as 74.65.

Dollar Remains Fragile, Gold Jumps to The Highest Level Since November


Gold futures prices rose sharply on Monday, extending its gains to a second straight trading session. The precious metal surged to the highest level in more than nine months as the dollar has still been dragged down by disappointing remarks of Fed Chair Yellan last week.

Gold for October delivery jumped noticeably more than 1 percent to trade at $1,306.70 an ounce – the highest level since November 9th, 2016. The dollar had slumped against a basket of global currencies on Friday and remained weak in the first trading of the new week due to falling expectations of a rate hike later this year.

The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, traded in mixed fashion, losing 0.02 percent to 92.35 and lingering near its weakest level of 2017.

Speaking at the annual central bankers’ meeting in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen last Friday avoided talking about monetary policy. Instead, she defended rules adopted in response to the financial crisis, reiterating that any rollback of post-crisis financial reforms should be “modest”. Yellen’s comments sparked uncertainty as to whether the central bank will raise rates one more time or unwind the central bank’s balance sheet later this year.

A weak dollar tends to boost gold’s prices as it helps boost attractiveness of gold to holders of other currencies.

Euro Takes Off Against Canadian Dollar As Crude Oil Futures Drop Sharply


The euro rose dramatically versus its Canadian counterpart on Monday, extending its rally to a second straight trading session. The single currency surged to the highest level in nearly two week as the Loonie has still been dragged down by tumbling crude oil prices.

The currency pair EURCAD jumped more than 0.5 percent to trade at $1.49600 – its strongest level since August 16th.

The Canadian dollar was broadly lower against its peers as oil futures headed sharply lower on Monday. October West Texas Intermediate crude tumbled by around 3.4 percent to trade at $46.72 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, heading for their lowest settlement in about a month

Meanwhile, the single currency has been supported by European Central Bank President Mario Draghi who avoided giving fresh clue on when the bank might tighten its stimulus program at Jackson Hole last week. However, Draghi claimed that the recovery in the euro area was gaining momentum.

Daily Report on August 29, 2017



Escalating geopolitical tensions sapped investors' appetite for risky investments. Asian shares and U.S. stock futures tumbled on Tuesday, causing investors to pile into safe-havens assets such as the Japanese Yen, gold, Swiss franc and U.S. Treasuries. South Korea’s Kospi index led declines across the region, losing 1.2 percent. The S&P/ASX 200 Index and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index dropped 0.9 percent and 0.4 percent, respectively.

The Topix index declined 0.3 percent on the back of a strengthening Yen. The yen advanced 0.4 percent to 108.81 per dollar while gold advanced 0.7 percent to $1,317.02 an ounce, extending a 1.3 percent advance on Monday. Contracts on the S&P 500 Index were down 0.6 percent after falling as much as 0.9 percent. The underlying measure was little changed on Monday.

North Korea was reported to fire an unidentified ballistic missile passing over northern Japan. The act reignited tensions after a war of words between Pyongyang and Washington earlier this month. Earlier this month, Pyongyang had threatened to fire a missile over Japan toward the U.S. territory of Guam in a respond to U.S. President Donald Trump’s warnings that any threat North Korea presented to the United States would be met with “fire and fury.

In a speech following the missile’s launch, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe claimed that it “is an unprecedented, grave and serious threat” and that he agreed with Trump to increase pressure on North Korea. Japan did not only ask the United Nations Security Council to hold an emergency meeting but also urged China and Russia to join in taking action against Kim Jong Un’s regime.



Technicals

GBPCHF



As can be seen from the price chart, GBPCHF has been under downward pressure exerted by two MAs that are hanging above the price action.

While RSI index has jumped into the oversold zone, ADX index is on a rise with a widening gap between –DI and +DI lines.

The pair is forecast to edge higher in an attempt to test a resistance at 1.51000.

Trade suggestion

Buy Stop at 1.50400, Take profit at 1.51000, Stop loss at 1.50100



Natural Gas




Natural gas’s price action has broken out of a shrinking trading range that connects lower highs and higher lows. The commodity’s price breached this range from below, which indicates a strong bullish force in the market. RSI index is rising to as high as 60.82, signaling further advances for natural gas’ prices. The resistance at 3.000 is expected to be tested.

Buy Stop at 2.9750, Take profit at 3.000, Stop loss at 2.9650



SILVER


Silver extended its rally following a period of moving sideways. The market fell into a consolidation after the price action broke out of a significant level at 50.0% Fibonacci retracement. RSI has soared to as high as 72.66, indicating a dominating bullish force in the market. A resistance at 17.700 is within the sight.

Trade suggestion

Escalating Geopolitical Tensions Roil Markets, Yen Jumps to 4-month Highs Versus Dollar


Japan’s currency gained versus all major developed peers on Tuesday, especially surging to a four-month high against the U.S. dollar after North Korea fired a missile over Japan. The act reignited tensions after a war of words between Pyongyang and Washington earlier this month.

The Yen had jumped to as high as 108.326 yen per dollar in early trade- the highest level since April 18th – before retreating to 108.780 at the end of Asian morning trading session. North Korea was reported to fire an unidentified ballistic missile passing over northern Japan.

Earlier this month, Pyongyang had threatened to fire a missile over Japan toward the U.S. territory of Guam in a respond to U.S. President Donald Trump’s warnings that any threat North Korea presented to the United States would be met with “fire and fury.

In a speech following the missile’s launch, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe claimed that it “is an unprecedented, grave and serious threat” and that he agreed with Trump to increase pressure on North Korea. Japan did not only ask the United Nations Security Council to hold an emergency meeting but also urged China and Russia to join in taking action against Kim Jong Un’s regime.

Escalating geopolitical tensions sapped investors’ appetite for risky investments. Asian shares and U.S. stock futures tumbled on Tuesday, causing investors to pile into safe-havens assets such as the Japanese Yen as Japan is the world’s biggest creditor nation and it has big current account surpluses.

U.K. Shares Join Global Share Sell-off, Firm Pound Builds Up Pressure


U.K. shares reopened and dropped sharply on Tuesday after having been closed in the previous session for the August Bank Holiday. Joining a selloff in global stock markets, the FTSE 100 index tumbled after North Korea launched a ballistic missile over northern Japan.

The FTSE 100 index plunged by 1.40 percent to retest a firm support at 7,300.00 – lowest since August 21st as investors’ appetite for risky investments was sapped due to news that North Korea fired the first missile over the main lands of Japan since 2009.

While no sector traded higher, a strong pound also contributed to providing some downside. Sterling added more than 0.2 percent versus dollar, sending the pair GBPUSD to as high as $1.2966, compared with $1.2933 late Monday in New York. A stronger currency tends to hurt shares of multinational companies that make the bulk of sales and earnings overseas.

Dollar Turns Higher Versus Euro Following Better-than-expected U.S. Data


The U.S. dollar rebounded on Wednesday, sending its European counterpart back down to the lowest level since last Friday. The pair EURUSD tumbled from two-and-a-half-year highs logged yesterday after data showed U.S. employments and growth rates were better than expected.

The currency pair lost more than 0.5 percent to trade at as low as $1.19100 per euro, paring earlier gains which had sent the pair to a high of $1.20692 – the level that had not been seen since early 2015. The dollar gained ground versus most of its peers after the Automatic Data Processing reported that U.S. private employers added 237,000 jobs in August.

The figure was well above economists’ expectations which called for a gain of 183,000 jobs.

Later in the week, the U.S. Labor Department will release its August nonfarm payrolls report at on Friday amid expectations that the data will show jobs growth of 180,000 in August, following an increase of 209,000 last month. The unemployment rate forecast to hold steady at 4.3% while average hourly earnings are expected to rise 0.2% after adding 0.3% a month earlier.

Besides data on U.S. job market, figures on second-quarter economic growth were also released. The Commerce Department reported that U.S. economic rose at 3% rate in the three-month period to June. The reading was revised up from an initial rate of 2.6% and marked the fastest quarterly growth rate in more than two years following a rise of 1.2% in the first quarter.

Stronger consumer spending was the main cause for the upward revision. Indeed, consumer spending was reported to jump at the rate of 3.3% last quarter, up from the government’s original estimate of a 1.9% gain.

Daily Report on August 31, 2017



Tracing bullish sentiment on Wall Street boosted by upbeat U.S data in the previous session, Asian shares advanced further also thanks to data that underscored the resilience of Chinese economies. MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan added more than 0.2 percent, looking set to close the month 0.7 percent higher. Equity benchmarks rose in Australia, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia but retreated in South Korea and China.

Data showed the U.S. economy grew at an upwardly revised 3 percent annualized pace in the second quarter, the fastest pace in two years in the wake of robust consumer spending and strong business investment. The greenback surged to the highest level in two weeks versus the Japanese Yen. A pullback in Yen helped Japan’s equities trade higher. Japan's Nikkei surged 0.6 percent to its best level in two weeks, still down 1.5 percent on the month though. The Topix index also rose 0.6 percent.

Copper for December delivery on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange climbed more than 0.6 percent to trade at $3.1065 per lb, heading for a third monthly gain in a row. The price also reached its highest point since mid-September 2014, bolster by data that reflected healthy growth at China’s factories in August.

Expectations of better metals demand were fed after China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing (CFLP) reported that China’s official factory gauge further strengthened in August. Indeed, the manufacturing purchasing managers index jumped to 51.7 in August from the 51.4 reading in July. This month’s figure easily topped market forecast for a small dip to 51.3.

Daily Report on September 21, 2017




Asian shares slipped while European equity futures jumped on Thursday after the conclusion of policy meetings held by the U.S. Federal Reserve and the Bank of Japan. The MSCI’s broadest dollar-denominated index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dropped 0.5 percent with losses led by Australian shares which lost as much as 0.8 percent.

Japan’s Topix index climbed less than 0.1 percent at the close in Tokyo after having pared wiped out almost all the session’s advance of as as much as 0.7 percent. While the Kospi index shed 0.2 percent, the Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index and the Shanghai Composite Index swung between gains and losses. By contrast, futures contracts on Euro Stoxx 50 rose 0.4 percent.

The dollar jumped dramatically versus its major rivals on Thursday after the Fed decided to keep its interest rates unchanged in a range of 1 percent to 1.25 percent as widely expected. The central bank announced that it would start shrinking its $4.5 trillion balance sheet next month and trimming its massive holding of U.S. Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities that it acquired in the years after the 2008 financial crisis.

The Fed continued to reiterate that interest rates are likely to rise at a “gradual” pace given steady growth and low unemployment which is expected to boost inflation closer to their 2% goal. The central bank signaled that it expects one more interest rate hike by the end of the year with the consideration that hurricane damage are unlikely to affect the economy in the medium term. In its new set of projections, the Fed estimates that three quarter-point rate hikes would be appropriate next year.

Meanwhile, although the Bank of Japan kept its monetary stimulus unchanged on Thursday as expected by economists, the Yen lost ground after a dovish new board member said the effects of the current yield curve program of the Japanese central bank weren’t strong enough which would not be able to bolster inflation higher towards BOJ’s target by the projected time frame of around fiscal 2019.

Dollar Reaches Two-month Highs Versus Yen On the back of Diverging Monetary Policies


The dollar jumped dramatically versus its Japanese counterpart on Thursday after the conclusion of policy meetings held by the U.S. Federal Reserve and the Bank of Japan which delivered diverging monetary policies.

The greenback shone and soared to the highest level in two months versus the Yen in Asian trading session on Thursday, sending the pair USDJPY 0.17 percent higher to trade at as high as 112.40 yen per dollar. According to the Federal Open Market Committee’s statement released after a two-day meeting starting on Tuesday in Washington, the Fed decided to keep its interest rates unchanged in a range of 1 percent to 1.25 percent as widely expected.

However, the central bank announced that it would start shrinking its $4.5 trillion balance sheet next month and trimming its massive holding of U.S. Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities that it acquired in the years after the 2008 financial crisis.

The Fed continued to reiterate that interest rates are likely to rise at a “gradual” pace given steady growth and low unemployment which is expected to boost inflation closer to their 2% goal. The central bank signaled that it expects one more interest rate hike by the end of the year with the consideration that hurricane damage are unlikely to affect the economy in the medium term. In its new set of projections, the Fed estimates that three quarter-point rate hikes would be appropriate next year.

Following the Fed’s statement, Fed fund rate futures rose to a 65 percent chance of a rate hike by December from around 50 percent before the latest meeting. The dollar; therefore, was supported strongly amidst expectations over the central bank raising rates in the near futures.

Meanwhile, although the Bank of Japan kept its monetary stimulus unchanged on Thursday as expected by economists, the Yen turned lower against its major rivals after a dovish new board member said the effects of the current yield curve program of the Japanese central bank weren’t strong enough which would not be able to bolster inflation higher towards BOJ’s target by the projected time frame of around fiscal 2019.

Markets are awaiting a news conference by its governor which is scheduled to be held later in the day.

U.K. Stocks Soar to Two-week Highs As Sterling Declines Following Weaker-than-expected GDP Data

U.K. stocks jumped to highest level in more than two weeks on Friday, heading for a second straight weekly gain thanks to a weak British Pound that came after a worse-than-expected Q2 GDP data.

The benchmark FTSE 100 index soared dramatically nearly 0.6 percent to trade at 7,363.05 – the highest level since September 14th – with all sectors trading in the positive territory. The index looked set to close the week with a rise of 0.7 percent which would help to pare a monthly pullback to roughly 0.9%.

Sterling dropped 0.57 percent in European morning trading session versus the dollar after the Office for National Statistics reported the second-quarter gross domestic product that was revised lower. According to the report, the final reading of year-on-year growth slipped to 1.5%, down from a previous estimate of 1.7%.

A weak pound helps boost shares of multinational companies on the FTSE 100 due to the fact that their companies’ oversee earnings can be increased when converted back to sterling.

Trade suggestion

Buy Stop at 7365.00, Take profit at 7400.00, Stop loss at 7350.20

Volkswagen AG Increases Provisions on Modifying Diesel Vehicles in U.S., Shares Slip

Shares of Volkswagen AG tumbled on Friday after the German car maker warned that its third-quarter operating result would be affected by higher costs associated with the repurchase of diesel cars in North America.

Volkswagen’s equities shed more than 2.3 percent in European trading session to trade at 140.50 euro per share following the announcement that the company added provisions of around 2.5 billion euros ($2.94 billion) to the already amount of around 20 billion euros spending on its diesel emissions scandal.

The German car maker said that settlements in North America proved to be “far more technically complex and time consuming” than expected which led to the increase in provisions as the company has to bear more costs from buyback and retrofitting programs for models fitted with its 2.01 TDI engine.

Volkswagen is scheduled to publish third-quarter results on October 27.

Sell Stop at 140.50, Take profit at 139.00, Stop loss at 141.20

Daily Report on October 02, 2017



Global shares advanced on Monday with U.S. stock benchmarks opening at all-time intraday highs. Investors shrugged off a mass shooting event in Las Vegas that is being described as the worst in U.S. history, boosting demand for risky assets such as stocks after all three U.S. equity benchmarks posted weekly, monthly and quarterly gains last Friday.

The S&P Index climbed more than 0.26 percent to hit a record intraday at 2,525.29, the Dow Jones Industrial Average soared 0.24 percent to trade at 22,451.22 - an all-time high level while the Nasdaq Composite Index also reached an intraday peak at 6,520.92, up 43 percent. European also traded higher with the Stoxx Europe 600 Index adding 0.2 percent to touch the highest in 14 weeks with its eighth consecutive advance.

Supported by a weaker euro, Germany’s DAX Index reached the highest in 15 weeks on its sixth consecutive advance after marching 0.2 percent higher. The single currency weakened in the wake of political turmoil in Spain where police beat people trying to vote in an independence referendum in Catalonia. The U.K.’s FTSE 100 Index gapped up and jumped 0.6 percent to the highest in a month on the back of a weak Sterling.

Crude oil futures tumbled on Monday after U.S. data showed a rise in domestic drilling while a Reuters survey indicated an increase in OPEC output last month. Baker Hughes on Friday reported that the number of active U.S. rigs drilling for oil rose by 6 to 750 last week, which marked the first increase in the last seven weeks. Meanwhile, a Reuters survey released on Friday showed the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries boosted output in September. The increase largely came from higher supplies from Iraq and Libya – an OPEC member exempt from cutting output.
