Eurex: Trade Worries Tick Over


Morning Briefing January 17th 2018

There are only two pieces of data worth noting on a very quiet Thursday. These are the November Euro Area construction output data at 1000GMT. The other release worth noting is the January U.S. Initial Jobless claims.

Euro area construction output in October declined by 1.6% on the month resulting in a 1.8% rise y/y.

ECB Executive Board member Sabine Lautenschlager is speaking in Dublin, Ireland at 1100GMT.

The initial jobless claims data was 216 last week and the MNI median has this week's reading at 210.

Concluding the speeches at 1545GMT, the Fed's Randal Quarles is participating in a discussion about Insurance Regulation and Supervision in New York.

Global Economic Trading Calendar

Markets

US TSYS: T-Notes operate a touch above settlement, drawing support from a modest downtick in U.S. equity index futures, as well as the Nikkei 225 pairing its early gains. - Yields trade 0.8-1.2bp lower at writing. - Fed dove & non-voter Kashkari stuck to his usual cautious message in early Asia-Pacific hours. Elsewhere general worry re: trade matters surrounding Huawei & ZTE, in addition to talk of a delay in U.S. trade talks with both the EU & Japan, weighed on risk.

BUNDS: German fixed income futures have drawn some support from modest risk-off flows observed thus far, with a focus on the global trade backdrop, with the contracts trading at/near best levels. Schatz +0.015, Bobls +0.060, Bunds +0.17.
- Guarded commentary from ECB's Draghi, Nowotny, Mersch & Villeroy has been evident over the last 36 hours or so, although the speakers have all batted away any talk of EZ recession after highlighting the risks that the single currency zone currently faces.

JGBS: Modest risk-off flows pushed the Nikkei 225 away from the early highs, with the benchmark closing the morning session 0.2% lower, supporting JGBs. JGB futures operated in a tight range this morning, going into the lunch at unchanged levels. Yields out to 10-Years trade modestly softer, with 20-Year plus paper underperforming slightly, facilitating some modest twist steepening. - Comments from BoJ's Amamiya revealed little new, with a focus on demographics. - The BoJ left the size of its 5-10 Year Rinban ops unchanged today, offer to cover ratio 2.21 (prev. 3.28).

AUSSIE BONDS: Bond futures continue to operate within narrow ranges, with YM -0.5 & XM -1.0 at writing. The curve trades in familiar territory, YM/XM last 51.5, with the cash 3-/10-Year yield differential last at 48.8bp. - No notable reaction was observed to the latest round of AU housing finance data.

STOCKS: General worry re: global trade matters surrounding Huawei & ZTE, in addition to talk of a delay in U.S. trade talks with both the EU & Japan, weighed on risk during the early part of the Asia-Pacific session, leading U.S. index futures lower. - The move lower in U.S. equity futures, couple with some modest JPY strength led the Nikkei 225 lower, after a positive start for the space. - Chinese linked stocks unwound their early underperformance, aided by the PBoC injecting a net >CNY1.0tn in liquidity so far this week. - There was a decent round of earnings releases for Australian energy names, with financials and materials also ticking higher.

OIL: WTI & Brent both trade ~$0.30 lower at writing, in what has been a relatively lacklustre Asia-Pacific session for crude.

GOLD: Gold continues to operate around the upper echelons of its recent range, struggling for fresh impetus, last $1,292/oz.

FOREX: Risk appetite was dampened in early Asia-Pac trade on the back of global trade tensions re: Chinese tech companies & potential delays to U.S. trade talks with Japan & the EU. - JPY outperformed at the margin, with USD/JPY <Y109.00 for the bulk of the session. The Nikkei 225 & U.S. equity futures trade marginally lower. Worth noting BoJ Gov Kuroda spoke overnight stressing the need to eye the impact of unconventional policy. - NZD underperformed amidst talk of some modest NZ funding pressure around the upcoming NZ holiday, in the aftermath of a soft REINZ house sales print. - Sterling traded mixed after PM May survived yesterday's no-confidence vote (as exp.) and proceeded to cross-party talks re: Brexit, which the Labour Party's Corbyn refused to attend unless the prospect of "no deal" is formally removed. - USD was relatively firm, although no prospects of ending the ongoing gov't shutdown any time soon have emerged.

Technical Analysis

BUND TECHS: (H19) JAN 3 HIGHS REMAIN INTACT FOR NOW

The pullback in Bund futures yesterday proved short lived with attention turning back to the Jan 3 high at 165.10. Above here would solidify the longer term uptrend and open the Sep 2017 high at 165.83. The 21-dma at 163.98 acts as initial support, with a break below needed to shift the outlook negative and target the Dec 27 low at 163.15.

EUROSTOXX50: STILL CAPPED BELOW 3100 AND 50-DMA

Despite yesterday's rally Eurostoxx remains below the 3100 level and the 50-dma just above it, keeping the broader bearish trend intact. A break above here would suggest a potential bullish trend change, opening down trendline resistance at 3140 ahead of the Dec 3 high at 3244.98. Bears look for a move below the 21-dma to open the 3000 level. Below here would open a retest of the Dec 27 low at 2908.70.
