Daily Report on July 06, 2017



Most Asian stock markets fell on Thursday with the MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan down 0.2 percent after U.S. stock market closed mixed in the previous session.​ A​ sharp drop in oil prices weighed down​ the energy sector​ and kept the Dow and S&P 500 near​ the unchanged mark on Wednesday. By contrast,​ gains in technology stocks lifted the Nasdaq.

Japan’s Topix edged​ 0.1 percent​ lower and South Korea’s Kospi and Singapore’s Straits Times Index shed 0.2 percent while​ Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 Index was flat.​ ​ The Shanghai Composite Index was also little changed but​ Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index​ and the Hang Seng China Enterprises Index retreated​ 0.1 percent​ and​ 0.4 percent, respectively.

According to data released by the Thomson Reuters Oil Research, OPEC exported 25.92 million barrels per day (bpd) in June, which was 450,000 bpd above May and 1.9 million bpd more than a year earlier.

Meanwhile, data from the American Petroleum Institute (API) pointed to a drop of 5.8 million barrels in U.S. crude oil inventories in the week to June 30 to 503.7 million. Official data from the Energy Information Administration will be published later in the day.

The dollar steadied against its peers early on Thursday​ following​ the Federal Reserve’s minutes of​ the central bank's June 13-14 policy meeting. The minutes showed a widening gap in​ Fed policymakers’​ outlook for inflation and how it might affect the future pace of interest rate hikes. While several officials wanted to announce a start to the process of​ unwinding their $4.5 trillion balance sheet​ by the end of August,​ others preferred to wait until later in the year.

British Pound Tumbles Versus Dollar After A String of Downbeat Economic Data


Sterling dropped lower versus the U.S. dollar on Friday following downbeat U.K. data on manufacturing production. Meanwhile, the greenback held on gain ahead of a highly-expected U.S. Non-farm Payrolls which is due later in the day.

The currency pair GBPUSD lost more than 0.4 percent to trade at 1.2917 during European morning trade – its lowest level since Wednesday. The Pound pushed lower against most of its peers after the U.K. Office for National Statistics reported that manufacturing production retreated by 0.2% in May.

This was a disappointment compared to an increase of 0.2% recorded in the previous month and analysts’ forecast for a rise of 0.5 percent. On a yearly basis, manufacturing production advanced by 0.4%, well below expectation calling for an increase of 1.0%.

Besides, the ONS also reported data on U.K. industrial production which pointed to a down move of 0.1% in May. Economists had expected a 0.4% rise. Adding to the pressure on Sterling, construction output was reported to plunge by 1.2% while markets were expecting the figure to soar 0.6%.

Turning to the greenback, investors were nervously waiting for the Labor Department’s June nonfarm payrolls report. The report is forecast by analysts to show U.S. employers to have added 179,000 jobs last month. Ahead of Friday’s jobs data, the ADP National Employment Report released on Thursday showed private-sector payrolls increased by 158,000 jobs last month. The reading came in below both the 230,000 jobs created in May and economists’ expectations for a rise of 185,000.

Upbeat data will support the dollar to surge higher as they increase the optimism about the U.S. economy which would boost the case for higher interest rates at the second half of this year and in the following months.

On the contrary, a weak report would add to uncertainty over the economic outlook and prompt the Federal Reserve to delay the plans with regards to policy normalization to next year.

Crude Oil Reverses Gains, Under Pressure of Persistent Oversupply


Crude oil futures prices reverse lower in European trading session on Monday; paring earlier gains to extend their downward rally to a fourth consecutive day amidst persistent oversupply worries.

On the New York Mercantile Exchange, light, sweet crude futures for delivery in August inched around 0.1 percent lower to trade around $44.20 per barrel in early European trade after surging as high as $44.67 per barrel in Asian trading session.

Markets remained under pressure from rising output in the U.S. and some members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. Data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showed that U.S. production rose to nearly 9.34 million barrels a day last week. This was an increase from 9.25 million barrels a day the week prior. Compared to the same period one year ago, production jumped nearly 11%.

Moreover, Baker Hughes Inc. on Friday reported U.S. oil producers added seven more rigs last week. This was a 24th week of increases out of the last 25, which brought the total count up to 763, the most since April 2015.

Meanwhile, according to market sources, Libya’s crude-oil output soared to more than one million barrels a day, up from 400,000 in October. Nigeria’s output was also on a rise, surging to 1.6 million barrels a day, up from 200,000 barrels a day in October.

Crude oil futures prices retested a significant level at 38.2% Fibonacci retracement after having to give up its bearish momentum to reverse higher last Friday. As can be seen from the chart, the short-term MA20 has crossed over the long-term MA50 , confirming the downtrend. RSI continued to point lower while ADX index is witnessing a widening gap between -DI and +DI lines, signalling a breakout and further down moves.

Sterling Jumps Above 1.3000 After U.S. Data Fall Below Expectations

The British Pound soared to nearly ten-month highs versus the dollar on Friday, supported by hawkish comments from a BOE official. Meanwhile, the greenback traded lower after a pair of data releases disappointed markets.

The pair GBPUSD added more than 1.0 percent in the last session of the week to trade above $1.3000 for the first time since September 22nd, 2016. Sterling extended recent gains on the back of comments from Bank of England policy maker Ian McCafferty. The BOE policy maker claimed that the central bank should unwind its 435 billion pound quantitative easing program earlier than planned given strong jobs data and 42-year-low unemployment rate.

By contrast, the dollar lost ground versus most of its peers, continuing to slide further after downbeat inflation and retail sales data. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on Friday reported that the consumer price index was unchanged in June. Analysts had expected for a rise of 0.1%. On a yearly basis, the rate of inflation slowed to 1.6% in June (the smallest gain since October 2016) from 1.9% in the prior month.

Meanwhile, data on retail sales were reported to unexpectedly fall 0.2% last month following a decline of 0.3 percent in May.

Daily Report on July 17, 2017




Asian shares surged strongly on Monday, setting a fresh two-year record high after the releases of better-than-expected data from China. Besides, stock markets were also boosted by bets that lackluster U.S. data will restrain the Federal Reserve from aggressively raising its interest rates. While Japanese markets were closed for a holiday, the MSCI Asia Pacific Index jumped 0.4 percent after a rise of 3.1percent last week.

Australian shares reversed losses, adding 0.1 percent after having started the day in negative territory. . South Korea’s Kospi jumped 0.4 percent and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index climbed 0.6 percent. Boosted higher by upbeat economic data, the CSI 300 was 0.2 percent higher, after slumping as much as 2.2 percent earlier. The Shanghai Composite also narrowed earlier losses to 0.1 percent after plunging by as much as 2.6 percent earlier.

According to the National Bureau of Statistics, China’s economy grew 6.9 percent in the second quarter compared to one year ago. Although remaining at the same year-on-year growth rate, China’s GDP picked up to 1.7 percent on a quarterly basis, from 1.3 percent in the first quarter. China’s retail sales were reported to rise 11.0 percent in June from a year earlier, the fastest pace since December 2015. The reading beat analysts' expectations for a 10.6 percent rise.

While industrial output rose 7.6 percent in June from a year earlier, the Fixed-asset investment climbed 8.6 percent in the first half of this year. Both data topped markets’ expectations.

Crude oil prices inched higher on Monday with West Texas Intermediate crude advancing 0.2 percent to $46.64 a barrel, heading for a sixth day of gains. The energy services company Baker Hughes last Friday reported that U.S. drillers added two oil rigs in the week to July 14, which brings the total count up to 765, the most since April 2015.
