  1. Date : 16th July 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 16th July 2019.FX News Today Treasury yields steadied during the Asian session, with bonds erasing overnight gains and the 10-year yield now up 0.3 bp at 2.092%. JGB yields also backed up from lows and are down -0.1 bp at -0.129%, after returning from holiday, while yields declined in Australia and New Zealand after the minutes of the last RBA meeting showed the bank remains ready to adjust policy if needed. Stock markets meanwhile struggled in very light volumes as markets hold back ahead of key US data and earnings reports this week. On trade talks US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin said he and Trade-Representative Lighthizer may travel to Beijing if talks by phone this week are productive. The WTI future is trading below $60 per barrel and U.S. futures are posting marginal gains. In Europe, the GER30 future is currently slightly higher as are US futures, which UK100 futures are in the red, amid ongoing Brexit jitters as Boris Johnson, poised to succeed as PM next week, puts no-deal options firmly back on the table. Last week’s round of Brexit negotiators was reportedly one of the most difficult encounters of the last 3 years. Meanwhile JP Morgan, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and Taiwan Semiconductor are among the companies reporting results this weeks. Charts of the Day Technician’s Corner EURUSD has been held between its 20-day Moving Average of 1.1295 and its 50-day Moving Average at 1.1242 since Friday. A 25 basis point Fed rate cut at the end of the month has been priced into EURUSD, and focus now may shift to the ECB, where further stimulus could be in the cards at its next meeting on July 25, keeping EURUSD capped for the time being. USDJPY broke earlier today its 20-day Moving Average at 107.95, after printing 8-session high from 107.80 during the overnight Asian session. The mixed risk backdrop has limited the pairing’s gains since last week, as Wall Street trades on either side of flat, and Treasury yields remain pressured. The July 5 low of 107.76 remains a floor for the asset, while next Resistance stands at 108.20 and 108.50 Main Macro Events Today Average Earnings (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Average Earnings excluding bonus for May expected to slightly increase at 3.2% from 3.1% last month.

Retail Sales and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – 0.2% June retail sales gains are expected for both with and without autos, following 0.5% May gains for both measures. Unit vehicle sales ticked down to a 17.3 mln pace in June from an upwardly-revised 17.4 mln clip in May, and gasoline prices should provide a drag on retail activity given an estimated -3.5% figure for the CPI for gasoline. Real consumer spending is expected to grow at a 3.9% rate in Q2, following the 0.9% Q1 clip. Support and Resistance levels Always trade with strict risk management.

  2. Date : 12th July 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 12th July 2019.FX News Today Treasuries recovered during the Asian session after better than expected data and a weak auction put pressure on bonds yesterday. Bonds across Asia were under pressure though and JGB yields moved up 2.6 bp to -0.121%, while Australia’s 10-year yield jumped 12.0 bp to 1.450%.The RBA already cut rates to record lows and comments from the central bank governor yesterday didn’t sound as though the bank was readying further easing at the moment, which. Stock markets were cautious ahead of trade and lending data out of China today, which are expected to set the tone for GDP numbers out on Monday. With Powell’s testimony out of the way the focus is shifting back to the impact of trade tensions and after Singapore reported the weakest GDP growthnumber in a decade investors are holding back before taking fresh positions especially after a tweet by US President Trump saying China was not living up to promisesmade on buying agricultural products from the US. Indices swung between gains and losses overnight and Topix and Nikkei are currently down -0.19% and up 0.15% respectively. European stock futures are moving higher in tandem with US futures. The WTI future is trading at $60.67 per barrel, amid escalating tensions in the Middle East. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURUSD spiked to 1.1274 in Asia session after knocking lower following the warmer US CPI outcome. Looking ahead, the Dollar is likely to remain in sell-the-rally mode ahead of the July FOMC meeting, where a 25 basis point rate cut is widely expected. EURUSD support is now at the 50-day Moving Average at 1.1240, with resistance at 1.1287-95, the July 5 and July 4 highs. USDCAD drifted lower to 1.3023 area as WTI future is rading at USD 60.58 per barrel, amid escalating tensions in the Middle East. Next Support stands at 1.2970-1.2990.

  3. Date : 11th July 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 11th July 2019.FX News Today FOMC minutes of the June meeting were a little anti-climactic following Fed Chair Powell’s testimony. However, there were “many” indications that an easier policy stance was the more desired outcome. 10-year Treasury yields dropped -2.3 bp to 2.039% overnight, and reopened soft, stopped at 2.064% tailing out from 2.057%. US stocks rise, yields drop, Powell’s testimony supported rate cut expectations. The S&P 500 briefly topped the 3000 mark for the first time, but the index didn’t manage to hold these levels as stocks generally came off highs. USD lower as Powell signals July FOMC rate cut. The WTI future is trading at $60.57 per barrel, amid reports that Iranian boats attempted to “impede” the passage of a British tanker. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner FX Update: The USD posted fresh lows during the pre-Europe session in Asia as markets continued to readjust Fed easing expectations in the wake of Chairman Powell’s testimony yesterday, which was consistent with a 25 bp rate cut at the end of this month with an addendum stipulating that the Fed has the tools needed and could use them “aggressively” if necessary. The narrow trade-weighted USD index (DXY) has declined by about 0.6% over the last day, earlier printing a six-day low at 96.90, while EURUSD rose to a six-day high at 1.1280 and USDJPY posted a six-day low at 107.86. The US currency saw a similar magnitude of decline against other currencies. In the mix has been an unexpected upward revision to June German HICP, to 1.5% y/y from 1.3% y/y, while news that Iran tried to intercept a British tanker in the Strait of Hormuz (London claiming that its navel ship HMS Montrose saw off three Iranian vessels with “verbal warnings”) saw front-month WTI crude prices spike above $60.0, the first time above this level since late May. Main Macro Events Today Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The German HICP inflation is expected to hold at 1.3% y/y for June. Consumer Price Index and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – May’s CPI has been estimated at a -0.1% drop for headline PPI in June, and a 0.2% rise in the core index. As expected readings would result in a y/y gain of 1.4% for headline PPI, slowing from a 1.8% pace in May, and a 2.1% y/y rise for the core, versus 2.3% in May.

FOMC Meeting Minutes (USD, GMT 18:00) -The FOMC Minutes report provides the FOMC Members’ opinions regarding the US economic outlook and any views regarding future rate hikes.

  5. Date : 5th July 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 5th July 2019.FX News Today Stock markets are little changed and awaiting today’s US jobs report. Hopes of further central bank easing have underpinned the latest rally in bonds and helped stock markets to move past lingering trade tensions. Today’s NFP report will be watched closely in the light of speculation for a move from the Fed this month. Anything but a much stronger than expected number will likely see markets continue to price in deep easing ahead. Topix and Nikkei are up 0.08% and 0.09% respectively, the Hang Seng lifted 0.12% and CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp 0.55% and 0.19%. Oil prices meanwhile are trading at $56.65, clearly below recent highs, despite ongoing tensions in the Middle East. Italian rates fall further as weaker than expected German manufacturing orders added to hopes for additional easing measures from the ECB. German manufacturing orders slumped -2.2 bp in the May reading, bringing the annual rate down to -8.6% y/y. Orders from within the Eurozone have now dropped for the second consecutive month while orders from outside the currency bloc fell back -5.7% m/m, after some strong months. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURUSD edged out a 1.1273, which is just 5 pips from yesterday’s low. Market narratives have been centering on the ECB’s further turn to the dovish side, which has tipped the Bund yield curve into negative right out to the 20-year maturity, while the 10-year yield has forayed below -0.40%, undershooting the deposit rate. GBPUSD found a footing after three straight down days, which yesterday culminated in a 15-day low at 1.2557. The pair has since taken root around 1.2575-90. EURGBP similarly came to a directional halt below the six-day high seen yesterday at 0.8990, which is just 2 pips short of the six-month peak that was seen last week. Main Macro Events Today NFP and Labour Market Data (USD, GMT 12:30) – A 170k June nonfarm payroll rise is projected, following a 75k increase in May. The unemployment rate should remain steady at 3.6% from April, and hours worked are estimated to rise 0.2%. Average hourly earnings should rise 0.3% m/m, for a y/y gain of 3.2%, above the 3.1% pace of April but below the 3.4% cycle-high pace of February. The payroll gains are seen averaging 169k in 2019, down from a 223k average in 2018. Labour Market Data (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The unemployment rate fell to 5.4% in May from 5.7% in April as the participation rate eased to 65.7 from 65.9. Hence, this strong reading is expected to hold for June, while employment change is expected to grow slightly up to 8K from the 27.7K seen in May after the 106.6k surge in April. Ivey PMI (CAD, GMT 14:00) – A survey of purchasing managers, the Index provides an overview of the state of business conditions in the country. Always trade with strict risk management.

  6. Date : 3rd July 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 3rd July 2019.FX News Today Stock market sentiment turned cautious again during the Asian session. EU leaders formally nominate IMF head Lagarde to head the ECB and replace Mario Draghi. Lagarde, is clearly a much more dovish option in comparison to Weidmann, who has been the leader of the hawks on the council. Lagarde’s nomination was enough for investors to price in even more easing and asset purchases, despite the fact that a Bloomberg report suggested that the majority of policy makers are not ready to make a more in July and prefer to wait for the updated forecasts in September. EGB futures have extended gains on the news. BoE’s Carney flags downside risks from trade. The BoE head repeated that the central bank sees the need for rate hikes if Brexit is smooth, he added that markets are giving more weight to a no deal scenario and that the BoE will reassess Brexit and trade risks at the August meeting. The US’ threat of additional tariffs on European goods highlighted that geopolitical trade tensions are far from over. The private China services PMI slowed to a four month low in June, adding to signs that much of the damage has already been done. Nikkei and Hang Seng lost -0.72% and -0.26% respectively and the Shanghai Comp is down -0.86%. President Trump plans to nominate Christopher Waller and Judy Shelton to the Fed Board of Governors to fill the two vacancies. GER30 and UK100 futures are currently posting slight gains, underpinned also by easing hopes, while U.S. futures are in the red, after a largely weaker close in Asia. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner USDJPY has come under some pressure, dropping to 107.52. Modest risk-off conditions have weighed, while the sentiment boost seen after the US/China trade truce appears to have worn off, leaving the reality that it may well be quite some time before agreements are made, and tariffs come off. Until some progress is made, it appears USDJPY upside will be limited. XAUUSD rallied to 1437.68 high,, underpinned by easing hopes and by geopolitical trade tensions which clearly are far from over. AMid EU open Gold reversed slightly lower to 1421 area and it is currently consolidating above it. Support holds at 1421, 1413 and 1407.55. Resistance levels come at 1428.55, 1431.80 and 1440. Main Macro Events Today United States – Independence Day – Early close at 13:00 GMT Services PMI (GBP, GMT 08:30) –The June Services PMI is seen stable at 51 m/m.

ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM-NMI index is expected to fall to 56.0 in June from 56.9 in May and a 19-month low of 56.1 in March, versus a 13-year high of 60.8 in September.

  8. Date : 2nd July 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 2nd July 2019.FX News Today Australia’s 10-year rate fell -2.7 bp, as the RBA slashed the cash rate by 25 bps to a record low of 1.00%, citing the slowdown in global trade. US President Trump may have signalled that talks with China have already restarted, but the US reportedly also expanded a list of European products that may get hit with tariffs, which highlights that the restart of US-Sino trade talks doesn’t mark the end of global trade tensions. Stock markets already turned cautious again in Asian trade. US futures are marginally higher and the WTI future is trading at $59.13 per barrel. European stock futures are moving higher in tandem with US futures after a lacklustre session in Asia. Meanwhile weaker than expected German retail sales at the start of the session confirmed that the weakness in the manufacturing sector is spreading to the rest of the economy, which will keep the ECB on course for further easing. EU leaders will meet again to resume discussion on the next president of the European Commission and other top posts that will become vacant this year, including the ECB presidency. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner AUDUSD jumped to 0.6985 at the Asia session amid the RBA announcement, after the decline seen yesterday on Dollar strength. The asset manage to held above 20- and 50-day SMA. A trade above 0.7000 which is the midpoint on yesterday’s decline could suggest further upside path for AUDUSD. Support comes at 2-day low, at 0.6955. A shift back to the latter could open the doors towards June’s values. EURUSD faded to 7-session lows of 1.1275, down from the 1.1360 highs seen ahead of the NY open. Weaker European PMI data, along with more dovish ECBspeak, saw sentiment toward the Euro soured some. For the USD side of the equation, markets have toned down their Fed rate cut expectations, leaving the odds of a 50 bp cut in July a long shot. As a result, the Dollar has posted gains, helped by the trade truce agreed over the weekend. There are still likely to be further trade fireworks going forward, but as long as the US economy continues to outperform rivals, USD downside should be limited going forward.

  10. Date : 27th June 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 27th June 2019.FX News Today Treasuries were weaker Wednesday after a poorly subscribed 5-year auction, while aggressive Fed rate cut expectations continued to be priced out. Also other bond markets in Asia, which were under pressure as stocks moved higher. Markets are pinning their hopes on Saturday’s meeting between Trump and Xi Jinping at the side-lines of the G-20 meeting with reports that the U. is willing to hold off further tariffs for now helping to bolster confidence. At the same time, President Trump threatened additional China tariffs if there is no agreement. Still, without a firm and formal agreement in place risks of set backs remain high, especially as US.-Iran tensions and in Europe no-deal Brexit scenarios provide a risky backdrop. European stock futures are moving higher in tandem with US futures after broad gains in Asia. WTI crude surged to 4-week highs on API data showing big US inventory drop. USD is trading mixed today after rallying Tuesday on Fed’s walk back of dovish guidance. JPY down, Dollar bloc currencies up quite sharply on US-China optimism. GBP is underperforming again on persisting Brexit related demand-supply imbalance. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURUSD rallied to 1.1391 highs, after bouncing from the session low at 1.1348, which is also the 200-day moving average. The pairing has since run into sellers in front of the 1.1400 mark, settling in under 1.1360. Softer US data weighed on the Dollar, though Fed Chair Powell’s more neutral stance on policy may tone down market’s aggressive easing potential, likely to limit EUR gains going forward. In addition, increasing prospects for further ECB easing should also keep a cap on EURUSD. AUDJPY has been the biggest mover, rising about 0.5% in printing a 16-day high at 75.62. The Yen weaken as markets opted for risk-on positioning ahead of the G20 summit. USDJPY posted an eight-day high at 108.13. This price action came as Chinese markets led broader gains across Asian stock markets, which propelled the MSCI Asia-Pacific index up by 0.6%. Meanwhile, as AUDJPY seems overbought outside from upper Bollinger Bands pattern, Some correction could be seen with immediate Support at 75.33. Resistance holds at 75.67 and 75.80.

  12. Date : 26th June 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 26th June 2019.FX News Today A less than dovish comment from Fed dove Bullard, with the Chairman Powell soothed a bit, and along with the usual trade uncertainty and US-Iran concerns, all combined with softer US data to take Wall Street and Treasury yields lower overnight. Hence in Asia session, the rally on bond markets run out of steam and stocks struggled as optimism on an immediate rate cut from the Fed and a breakthrough in US-Sino trade talk fades. Fed Chair Powell repeated the phrase the Fed is “closely monitoring“. He highlighted downside risks to the economy again, but didn’t go beyond last week’s guidance on rates. Presidents Trump and Xi are likely to meet on Saturday, where they may agree to reopen trade talks. Source stories meanwhile suggest that the US is willing to suspend the next round of China tariffs if trade talks resume, but Trump and Xi Jinping are not expected to agree on a detailed trade deal at the G-20 meeting. Against that background stock markets struggled during the Asian session. Topix and Nikkei corrected -0.71% and -0.70% respectively The RBNZ kept rates at record lows, but said further cuts may be needed. The WTI future is trading at $59.10 per barrel amid US-Iran tensions. German consumer confidence deteriorates. It fell back to 9.8 in the advance July reading. This is the lowest number since April 2017. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURCHF has found a footing into 1.10 area after coming under significant pressure last week, in the wake of ECB President Draghi’s eyebrow raising dovish shift, which has been the most notable of a growing chorus of dovish voices on the central bank’s governing council. Assuming the ECB remains on the path of further monetary policy easing ,the EURCHF is expected to retain a declining bias. The SNB’s -0.75% deposit rate and threat of tactical intervention hasn’t been sufficient to arrest recent appreciation of the Franc. Main Macro Events Today ECB’s Mersch speech (EUR, GMT 08:00) BoE’s Governor Carney speech (GBP, GMT 09:00) Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to be flat in May, after a -2.1% figure in April. Transportation orders should fall -0.5%. Boeing orders fell to just zero from a dismal 4 in April, with the hit from problems with the Boeing 737 Max that prompted buyers to delay new purchase commitments.

  13. Date : 25th June 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 25th June 2019.FX News Today Treasury yields extended declines in a quiet and cautious Monday action. The front end and belly of the curve mostly led the way on safe haven flows and as the FOMC’s more dovish than expected twist last Wednesday continued to support. Equities were little changed after a narrow, range bound trade. Tensions with Iran continued to drive cash into the safety of Treasuries, especially after President Trump announced he was placing more sanctions against its supreme leader and other top Iran officials has closed the path to a diplomatic solution (on the Ayatollah Khamenei, personally). US futures are down -0.2-0.5% as traders await Powell’s speech today. TheWTI future saw a high of $57.98 per barrel before pulling back slightly to now $57.45. Wall Street was in a more wait-and-see mode on the geopolitical risks, and as global markets await the U.S.-China trade talks at the G20 later in the week. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURUSD printed fresh 3-month highs just over 1.1411, up from 1.1380 lows at the open. The Euro moved to session highs after the weaker Dallas Fed index. The pairing ran into sellers at 1.1400, seeing a pullback to 1.1386 lows. Prospects for a July Fed rate cut continue to weigh on the Dollar, though soft EU data are likely to push the ECB toward further stimulus over the next few months, largely offsetting potential Fed policy easing. The March 20 high of 1.1448 is the next resistance level. Gold has printed five-plus year highs of $1,439.11, up from opening lows of $1,418.17. US/Iran tensions, along with potential for a Fed rate cut in July, and a weaker Dollar have all combined to put a bid under gold prices. The contract can be expected to remain in buy-the-dip mode for the foreseeable future, and continue to benefit from safe-haven flows on any fresh clashes in the Mideast. Main Macro Events Today NO OPEC Meeting in June –The dates of the separate OPEC ministerial meeting and of OPEC and its allies, known as OPEC+, have been changed to July 1-2, from June 25-26. CB Consumer Confidence (USD, GMT 14:00) – The Consumer Confidence is expected to slip to 133.5 in June from 134.1 in May, versus a 16-month low of 121.7 as recently as January and an 18-year high of 137.9 in October. Overall, confidence measures remain historically high. Fed’s Chair Powell speech (USD, GMT 17:00) Support and Resistance levels Always trade with strict risk management.

  14. Date : 21st June 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 21st June 2019.FX News Today Thursday’s rally on Wall Street failed to boost Asian markets, which struggled as the impact of easing hopes following dovish comments from Fed, BoJ and ECB faded and trade angst returned. US-Iran tensions also weighed on sentiment. The New York Times reported that US President Trump had actually approved military strikes after Iran shot down a US military drone, but pulled back from launching the attacks. The Nikkei fell back -0.8%, although the Shanghai Comp still managed a gain of 0.5% amid lingering hopes of progress on US-Sino trade talks ahead of the leaders meeting at the sidelines of the G-20 meeting next week. The USA500 managed a record high yesterday as markets position for rate cuts, but US futures are slightly in the red after a cautious session in Asia and GER30 futures are also down. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner USOIL advanced as much as 6%, up over $3, at June highs of $57.37. The downing of a US drone in the Persian Gulf got the rally rolling, with gains since coming following a Trump tweet, which just said “Iran made a very big mistake!”Following the tweet, prices moved up from near $56.20 to session highs. Immediate Support today hold at $56.00, while on the break of it 55.20 could be retested. On the flipside, Resistance $58.50-59.00 as stated in our post yesterday. Cable has lost upside traction, with the pair having settled 25-35 pips below the highs. The BoE trimmed its Q2 GDP growth estimate to 0.0% q/q from 0.2% while stating that inflation remains well anchored. Cable earlier printed an 8-day high at 1.2727. The Pound has fared less well against the Euro, losing ground today against the common currency. The UK currency has been trading with a 10-15% trade-weighted Brexit discount since the vote to leave the EU in June 2016, and this is not expected to change. Cable has resistance at 1.2730 and Support at 1.2665. Main Macro Events Today Markit Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30) – The Preliminary Manufacturing PMIs in Germany and Eurozone are expected to increase in June, to 44.5 and 48.1 respectively.

  16. Date : 20th June 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 20th June 2019.FX News Today Stock markets continued to rally in Asia, underpinned by hopes of further easing and progress on the trade front at the G-20 meeting and European stockfutures are moving higher in tandem with US futures. The BoJ left policy settings unchanged, but highlighted downside risks, especially for overseas economies. Hopes of further central bank stimulus and progress on the trade front at the G20 meeting meanwhile are keeping stock markets underpinned and Nikkei and Topix moved up 0.32% and 0.64% respectively. The Dollar has rotated lower after the Fed. FOMC held rates steady as expected, but shifted to an unambiguously dovish gear, noting that “uncertainties about this outlook have increased” while issuing a larger than expected downgrade in the dots as Chairman Powell refrained from using “transitory” to describe low inflation, marking a downshift in the inflation view. Some follow-through Dollar selling looks likely even in the London interbank market though increasingly dovish arguments at the ECB and other major central banks should curtail the US currency’s downside potential. The WTI future is 54.67 trading at USD 54.57 per barrel. In Europe, the BoE is also widely expected to keep monetary policy settings unchanged, but markets will be looking for signs that the BoE will at least drop the tightening bias as the global backdrop deteriorates Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner EURUSD printed 1.1283 highs, up from opening lows of 1.1225. The modest rally has been attributed to position adjustments ahead and post the FOMC announcement. Next Resistance for the asset holdws at 1.1288 and the round 1.1300. Support is set at 1.1245-1.1254. USDCAD – The Canadian Dollar, was the biggest mover, dropping by nearly 1% in making a four-month low at 1.3223. A strong rally in oil prices has catalysed a strong bid for the Canadian dollar. The WTI crude prices are up by nearly 3% since the Fed’s announcement, and are up by 5.7% from week-ago levels. Hence since the pair has broke the Support at Friday’s low ,the strong bullish mix of developments for CAD, opens the doors towards February-March lows, between the 1.3060-1.3140 area. Immediate Support meanwhile, is set at the round 1.3200 level. Main Macro Events Today Retail Sales (GBP, GMT 08:30) – UK sales are expected to slip -0.5% in May, with a big yearly slip at 2.7%, following a 5.2% figure for the April. Interest rate Decision and Conference (GBP, GMT 11:00) – BoE should remain on hold now until the Brexit D-day, while the Brexit process has essentially been frozen in motion as the Conservatives go about the business of selecting a new party leader/prime minister. If the transition runs smoothly we could see another 25 bp hike quickly thereafter. The consensus forecasts suggest no change in the policy rate in this meeting and an unchanged 9-0 MPC voting. Philly Fed Manufacturing Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Empire State index is estimated to fall to 12.0 in June from 17.8 in May, versus a 2-year low of 3.7 in March. The Philly Fed index is seen falling to 11.0 in June from 16.6 in May, versus a 33-month low of -4.1 in February. The producer sentiment readings all moderated through the turn of the year from elevated levels in response to global growth concerns, falling petroleum prices, fears about the ongoing trade war, and the partial government shutdown.

  17. Date : 19th June 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 19th June 2019.FX News Today Expectations that global central banks will add further stimulus to underpin the global economy and fresh hopes that global trade tensions will be resolved through talks after all underpinned stock markets during the Asian session. US President Trump tweeted yesterday that he will meet China’s President Xi Jinping at the G-20 meeting, which helped to lift CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp 1.96% and 1.50% respectively. Bond markets closed below highs yesterday and the gains are likely to erode further today as the focus shifts to the FOMC announcement. GER30 and UK100 futures are slightly in the red with profit taking and renewed caution capping the room for further gains. German PPI data at the start of the session came in lower than anticipated. The WTI future benefited from fresh trade talk hopes and is trading marginally above the USD 54 per barrel mark. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner USDJPY has drifted moderately lower, to levels around 108.26. The dip reflects a pick up in demand for the Yen. Overall, directional impulse has been limited in forex markets with participants hunkered down ahead of the Fed policy announcement later on Wednesday. All eyes will be on the Fed, where there is risk of disappointment given the level of expectation for a strong dovish guidance.
