Fed Interest Rate Decision

Dear Traders

Fed Interest Rate Decision - Jul 26, 18:00: A recent survey of 44 high level market participants returned unanimously the assumption that the Fed won't hike interest rates at its meeting this week.

The Trump administration which was meant to take some of the burden off the Fed with new tax policies and regulatory reform and to allow the Fed to renormalize policy faster have failed. Attempts to reform Health Care have been unsuccessful and tax reform is at risk and because of this, the Fed is expected to push back their next rate hike to December from September.

As we head towards the Fed's decision on Interest rates, there's growing concern that the stock market could be set up for a fall as asset markets are very highly priced, investors are complacent and the pre-conditions for a significant correction in markets are falling into place.

As always, the interest rate decision will cause high volatility in the market and the outcome will be a major market driver with trading opportunities.

ECB Interest Rate Decision

ECB to hold steady this week

Today: Jul 20, 11:45: The European Central Bank interest rate decision is due later this morning. It is expected that the ECB will leave interest rates untouched with many experts expecting the ECB to announce plans to reduce its bond-buying program in September.

The ECB President Mario Draghi's previous speech had been interpreted as a sign that the central bank was more optimistic about the economy and suggested that tapering could start sooner than expected, however since the June speech, the ECB has been tried to reduce expectations to prevent unwanted tightening of conditions.
In the markets, European shares extended gains in early trading on Thursday on the back of active global markets and this, just hours ahead of a highly important policy meeting at the European central bank. STOXX 600 rose 0.3 percent after major U.S. and Asian stock indexes closed Wednesday at record highs as the dotcom's impressed.

As always, we recommend that all clients are aware of high impact economic data releases and prepare for higher than normal market volatility and sharp market movements, should there be any surprise announcements.

Big Day for the Markets!

Bank of Canada interest rate decisions and Janet Yellen’s testimony.

Dear Traders,

Today Jul 12, at 14:00 the markets will be looking towards two major events with the Bank of Canada interest rate decisions and Janet Yellen’s testimony.

Janet Yellen’s mid-year market outlook is in major focus today as Yellen is expected to clarify the current economic situation and the policies applied to improve the economy. Strategists will be focused on any signs that the Fed is prepared to battle against inflation in financial assets.

It has been suggested in recent weeks that the Fed is uncomfortable with elevated equity valuations and low Treasury yields and the risk is associated to any indications that the Fed is at unease which could cause a wave of risk aversion in markets and high volatility.

At the same time, the Bank of Canada is expected to hike interest rates for 1st time in almost 7 years on Wednesday following signs the economy is well on the road to recovery after the crash in oil prices. The low interest rates have encouraged Canadians to record levels of debt in recent years, and the central bank feels significant risk for the economy.

Traders are 90 percent certain of a 0.25 percent rate hike today and big banks will likely increase interest rates as a result. Of course any hike in interest rates will mean additional expense for Canadian's with loans and mortgages and there could be a slowdown in first time house buyers as a result of the hike.

To summarize, the markets will be heavily focused on both events and any surprises could cause significant market volatility.

Stocks Stronger on NonFarm Data

US nonfarm payrolls beat the expected 179,000 and posted 222,000 new jobs created in June.

The better than expected results caused a stronger dollar, yet the main impact were on the world's stock markets with Asia stocks starting the trading week strongly and the Hang Seng starting the week with 1 percent gains.

European stocks such as FTSE 100 and Germany's DAX set for 0.4 percent gains and Australian stocks are up 0.3 percent, although China's blue-chip shares are flat.

Following the Non Farm data, Nasdaq gained 1 percent, the S&P 500 added 0.6 percent and the Dow Jones rose 0.4 percent. 

The markets will look towards the speeches by the Fed's Janet Yellen and Governor Lael Brainard this week for more indications regarding the Fed's hawkish stance and potential rate hikes in the second half of the year.

Dollar Under Pressure Ahead of NFP Report

Dear Traders,

The high impact Non Farm Payroll (NFP) will be released on Jul 07, 12:30; this report heavily affects the US dollar, the bond market and the stock market

As there are mixed messages regarding the US economy and increasing split on the outlook for inflation, the decision to raise interest rates may have been premature with the dollar under pressure.

Soft inflation in the US during the last few months have cast doubts on additional hikes this year, this has been followed by poor ADP survey, and rising unemployment. The NFP report is expected to be around 179K new jobs in June with unemployment rate expected unchanged.

If the report is as expected, the focus could be on the wages reports, however overall there needs to be a big change to stop the current USD slide.
