Early Morning Call: Euro indices expected lower; inflation in focus; Novavax down 16%

The overarching theme for the markets remains the global concern about growth.

 

 

Global concerns about growth affecting markets

The overarching theme for the markets remains the global concern about growth.

With bond yields rising in almost all western economies, central banks are having to take action, leading to traders choosing to avoid risk assets.

Volatility is coming off the biggest move up since 18 May with technology stocks leading losses in the US. Novavax plunged 16% on a report of possible further delays to its Covid-19 vaccine clearance, while Moderna shares also fell heavily. Amazon, Netflix, Coinbase and NIO were among the worst performers. All these stocks are all-sessions on the IG platform and can be traded from 9am.

Nikkei follows poor US lead

In Japan, the Nikkei followed this poor US lead, falling back to a one-week low. China mainland and Hong Kong outperformed the region, as consumer price index (CPI) in China rose by 2.1% in May from a year ago, just below expectations of a 2.2% increase.

Factory gate prices were in line with expectations at 6.4% year-on-year (YoY), cooling down to a 14-month low. Hit by Covid-19 restrictions, the world’s second largest economy has slowed significantly in recent months, alongside demand for steel, aluminium and other key industrial commodities.

Australia’s ASX 200 edged lower on the news, completing a week of daily losses and recording its worst weekly performance since January.

European outlook

In Europe, indices follow suit.

The FTSE 100 and DAX are on track to record their worst weeks since the beginning of the Ukraine war.

The main macro-economic event of the day will be the publication at 1.30pm of consumer price index in the US. Economists forecast a rise of 8.3% in May YoY, same pace as in April.

Core CPI rise is anticipated to decelerate to 5.9%, after 6.2% recorded in April, which would be a second straight month of decline for this indicator. The euro is relatively stable this morning after losing ground yesterday.

While considering that inflationary pressures have increased, the European Central Bank (ECB) failed to surprise the markets, saying a 25 basis point (bps) is on the cards for July, and confirming the end of the net asset purchase programme on 1 July.

Enery price rally

The rally in the price of energy is marking a pause, after new lockdown restrictions were imposed yesterday in parts of Shanghai.

US crude oil is back below $120 after setting a new 13-week high earlier this week. Investors are awaiting the Baker Hughes oil rig count published at 6pm. Oil and gas rig in operations have failed to increase in the previous two weeks.

FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 all under selling pressure again. EUR/USD and EUR/GBP drop post ECB meeting while USD/CAD rallies. And gold and Brent prices slightly lower while lumber drops to nine-month lows.

Risk-off across all markets as VIX rises substantially for a third day

Indices: After the worst week for many markets since mid-January, it would seem to have cast a die for the start today in Europe as markets now await rate decisions from (most importantly) the Fed, but also BoE and BoJ this week

FX: Big gains for USD after the strong inflation number. USDJPY breaks 20yr resistance and goes to highest since Oct 1998. GBPUSD down again, today CBI warns of increasing UK recession risk

Early Morning Call: UK recession risk; gold climbs; Oracle earnings

Confederation of British Industry warns of increasing UK recession risk. Gold down after Friday's 1-month peak. And watching Oracle ahead of earnings and Tesla after its 3-1 stock split and Larry Ellison leaving the board.

 

 

 Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Monday 13 June 2022 

APAC indices post heavy losses

Unsurprisingly, APAC indices posted heavy losses overnight, matching Friday’s US and European performances.

US consumer price index (CPI) rose to 40-year highs and Michigan consumer confidence plunged to an all-time low which also strengthened the dollar against all major currencies and pushed up gold to a one-month high.

On Friday, the Nasdaq 100 was the worst performer of the US indices, falling by nearly 4%. Likewise, losses in the Asia-Pacific region were led by tech stocks, sending most indices down around 3%. Note that Australia markets are closed for a holiday.

UK outlook

In the UK, the latest data shows that the economy shrank 0.3% in April month-on-month (MoM), missing forecasts of a 0.1% expansion.

This weekend the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) warned that the UK is facing stagnation and recession risk, and downgraded its growth outlook to 3.7% for this year, from 5.1% previously, and just 1% in 2023, from 3%.

Currency markets

Central bank decisions will punctuate the currency market this week.

The Federal Reserve (Fed) takes centre stage on Wednesday, followed by the Bank of England (BoE) on Thursday and the Bank of Japan (BoJ) on Friday.

If there is little doubt regarding the Fed and BoJ announcements, markets will be particularly attentive to Andrew Bailey’s comments. Even though the BoE was one of the first central banks to start hiking rates, sterling could endure the same fate as the euro last week, when the European Central Bank (ECB) president, Christine Lagarde’s messaged was perceived as a lack of commitment.

Stocks and earnings

Tesla proposed a three-to-one stock split after the close of US markets on Friday, which will be put to vote on the 4th of August. Meanwhile Larry Ellison, CEO and founder of Oracle and key supporter of Elon Musk, has decided not to stand for re-election to Tesla's board when his term ends.

Also watch out for Oracle earnings tonight. Investors will be particularly interested in the group’s revenue and guidance.

Revenue growth has been slowing in the last few quarters, but thanks to the sustained demand for the company's cloud products, Oracle has managed to keep its top line increasing.

Other divisions of the group have been directly impacted by the economic uncertainty as a result of Covid, and the subsequent supply chains issues.

Commodities

On the commodity markets, traders will keep an eye on aluminium which set a new 2022 low on Friday and is approaching an important area of support.

Also down is lumber, a victim of higher interest rates and a drop in consumer confidence. The lumber price broke nine-month support on Friday, and there is nothing in sight that would suggest a change in trend.

 Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 17 June 2022 

European indices outlook

European indices have shown small gains this morning after recording heavy losses yesterday.

The FTSE 100 closed 228 points lower, and later in the evening even tested the major psychological support of 7,000 points on IG's 24-hour market.

Investors were spooked by the Bank of England's (BoE) expectations. The bank sees the economy shrinking by 0.3% in the second quarter (Q2) and inflation topping 11% in October, higher than the “just above 10%” previously announced.

As for sterling, it initially fell against the dollar when the BoE announced its 25 basis point (BPS) hike, but rallied later.

US indices

In the US, the Dow Jones fell by 2.42%, the S&P 500 ended 3.25% lower, and the Nasdaq composite plunged 4.08%, setting a new 18-month low.

The dollar lost ground falling to a one-week low yesterday afternoon before recouping some of its losses. The Dollar Basket now hovers around 104.

APAC

In the Asia-Pacific region, trading was mixed.

The Nikkei and ASX 200 recorded losses of around 2%, while the Hang Seng and CSI 300 posted small gains.

In Japan, the Bank of Japan (BoJ) decided to keep its short-term interest rate target unchanged at -0.1%. It also kept its massive stimulus in place, pledging to buy unlimited amounts of 10-year Japanese government bonds at 0.25% every business day.

The yen fell on the news against all major currencies.

Macro outlook

Very little is expected on the macroeconomic front today, other than US industrial production at 2.15pm UK.

In its trading statement for quarter 1 (Q1), Tesco maintained its full-year (FY) profit guidance despite reporting a 1.5% drop in ex-fuel, and sees “early indications of changing customer behaviour as a result of the inflationary environment."

Over in the US, Adobe shares fell in extended trading despite beating earnings and revenue forecasts. The group posted earnings of $3.35 per share. Analysts had expected $3.31. Revenue was also above expectations, rising 14% to $4.39 billion.

But the group signalled that the third quarter (Q3) would be impacted by the ongoing war in Ukraine, and its decision to cease all new sales in Russia and Belarus. Adobe sees earnings and revenue below what analysts had anticipated.

Commodities

On the commodities front, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) and BoE economic projections weighed on industrial metals prices.

Copper is trading near one-month lows, and aluminium set a new 11-month low.

Oil prices are also feeling the impact of gloomy forecast. WTI and Brent are about to post their second straight week of losses.

Finally, on the cryptocurrency market, bitcoin is set to post its worst weekly performance since May 2021.

Early Morning Call: mixed session in APAC; recession fears persist; cryptos rout

Recession fears are rising again which are pushing markets lower; Europe to open down; no cash session on Wall Street. Recession fears also take base metals down and oil hits 4-week lows; gold little changed.

 

 

 Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Monday 20 June 2022 

APAC equity markets overview

Equity markets in the APAC region started the week mainly in the red with Japan’s Nikkei and South Korea’s KOSPI leading the losses.

China indices outperformed the region, as the People’s Bank of China kept its key rates unchanged in June. The one-year loan prime rate (LPR) was left at 3.7%, and the five-year rate, which is the reference rate for mortgages, remained at 4.45%. In May, the 5-year LPR was cut by 15 basis points.

European outlook

In Europe, indices showed very small gains at the start of the session. Investors will be particularly attentive to what French President Emmanuel Macron will do next. His centrist party lost absolute majority in parliamentary elections on Sunday. This means he can’t pass laws alone and will have to create an alliance with another party. But can he?

The left-wing alliance has become the main opposition party, while Marine Le Pen's party managed to win an unprecedented number of seats (89).

Here in the UK, low-cost airline easyJet has decided to cut more flights this summer in an attempt to manage operational problems. Also watch out for Associated British Foods and SThree, both having produced quarterly trading updates.

In Germany, the producer price index rose 1.6% in May on a month-on-month basis. Economists had expected an increase of 1.5%. Year on year, factory gate prices are up 33.6%. Note that US equity and bond markets will be closed this Monday for Juneteenth, a day that commemorates the emancipation of enslaved people in the country.

FX overview

After a tumultuous week punctuated by key – scheduled or unscheduled – central bank meetings, this is a relatively quiet start to the week on the FX market.

The dollar is down against main currencies, but the dollar basket remains above 104.

Commodities

Oil prices have settled after a volatile end of week. Last Friday WTI and Brent fell in excess of 6% as the dollar rallied on global recession fears.

Also on Friday, Baker Hughes reported a lift in the total rig count for the second week in a row, up by seven to 740. Oil rigs in operations rose four to 584, while the number of active gas rigs increased by three to 156.

Recession fears also sent industrial metals lower. Copper fell below $9,000 on Friday, an 8-½-month low, also an important area of support for copper over the last few months.

Aluminium, zinc and lead are also trading at or near support levels.

And finally, bitcoin is trading back above $20,000. Over the weekend the cryptocurrency took out $20,000 then $19,000 then went below $18,000. It's the first time it's closed below that level since November 2020.

    • The price of gold struggles to hold above the 50-Day SMA as it gives back the advance from last week, and the precious metal may continue to track the negative slope in the moving average if it fails to defend the monthly low. Source: Bloomberg   Commodities Gold Federal Open Market Committee Consumer price index Moving average Inflation   The price of gold appears to be reversing ahead of the monthly high ($1808) even as US Treasury yields remain under pressure, and the precious metal may threaten the opening range for August as it snaps the series of higher highs and lows from last week. Source: DailyFX It remains to be seen if the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) Minutes will influence the price of gold as the slowdown in the US Consumer Price Index (CPI) dampens bets for another 75bp rate hike, but hints of a looming shift in the Fed’s approach for combating inflation may prop up the precious metal as the central bank appears to be on track to winddown its hiking-cycle over the coming months. As a result, the statement may foreshadow a shift in the Fed’s forward guidance if a growing number of officials show a greater willingness to implement smaller rate hikes, and the price of gold may stage a larger recovery ahead of the next interest rate decision on September 21 as it trades above the 50-Day SMA ($1780) for the first time since April. However, more of the same from the FOMC may drag on the price of gold as Chairman Jerome Powell acknowledges that “another unusually large increase could be appropriate at our next meeting,” and the rebound from the yearly low ($1681) may turn out to be a near-term correction as the moving average continues to reflect a negative slope. With that said, the price of gold may continue to track the negative slope in the moving average with the FOMC on track to carry out a restrictive policy, and the weakness in the precious metal may persist if it fails to defend the opening range for August. Gold price daily chart Source: TradingView Summary Unlike the price action in June, gold managed to trade above the 50-Day SMA ($1780) earlier this month, with a break/close above the $1816 (61.8% expansion) region bringing the $1825 (23.6% expansion) to $1829 (38.2% retracement) region on the radar, however, the price of gold may continue to track the negative slope in the moving average as it appears to be reversing ahead of the monthly high ($1808), and failure to hold above the Fibonacci overlap around $1761 (78.6% expansion) to $1771 (23.6% retracement) may lead to a test of the monthly low ($1754). Lack of momentum to defend the opening range for August may push the price of gold back towards $1725 (38.2% retracement) area, with the next area of interest coming in around $1690 (61.8% retracement) to $1695 (61.8% expansion).

    • Hi All, As we are operating under a custodian model. We will reflect what the custodian receive. It has been confirmed that dividend will not be paid, you will receive one share of APE at 1:1 ratio. ''Under Share Trading with IG, shares purchased are held by Citi in a direct custody capacity.  Australian shares purchased through IG are registered in CHESS under Citicorp Nominees Pty Limited, with a CHESS Participant Identification Number (PID) 20018. They are held on the client’s behalf by Citibank Pty Ltd. UK and US shares are held by Citibank N.A. German shares are held by Citigroup Global Markets. The clients are the ultimate beneficial owners.' Once we receive the shares from our custodian, they will be booked on your account then they will be tradeable. I hope that it helps. Thank you - Arvin
