Australian Dollar Sinks as Soft CPI Weighs on Rate Hike Outlook

The Australian Dollar sank against the spectrum of major currencies after third-quarter Consumer Price Index figures fell short of expectations, weighing heavily on the outlook for future interest rate hikes.

The report showed the annual inflation rate cooled to 2.8 percent – the lowest yet this year – while the quarterly increase amounted to a smaller-than-expected 0.7 percent. A Credit Suisse gauge tracking the probability for a rate hike at November’s RBA meeting dropped 30 percentage points, showing traders now see a mere 17 percent chance of an increase. An index showing the tightening outlook for the year ahead dropped 8 basis points to show markets are pricing in 47bps in rate hikes over the next 12 months. The Australian unit fell 0.85 percent on average against a trade-weighted index of major currencies.

* Euro Fails to Mount a Defense on its Own Fundamentals against a Strong Dollar and Pound

Dollar and Risk Appetite Trends Left Unfazed by Consumer Sentiment Data, Durable Goods Ahead

In an otherwise quiet session for capital markets, the dollar was able to post a significant gain Tuesday. This progress is all the more remarkable when we consider that the usual suspects for trend encouragement (stimulus speculation and risk appetite) were not in play. Looking at investor optimism, we find that the S&P 500 generated another narrow range through the session and would put in for a recovery from early morning losses. The same level of restraint was seen for other risk-sensitive assets including crude, the iShares Investment Grade Corporate Bond Fund and gold. The deviation in performance between gold and the greenback is particularly interesting considering the metal has recently found its place in the financial world as an alternative to the US dollar and the all securities that will be devalued by the expansion of stimulus programs. For developing a true bull trend, the burden likely still falls to EURUSD to hold below 1.38 and overtake last week’s swing lows at 1.37. That said, the bullish progress made by USDJPY and USDCHF should not be overlooked. Where the more fundamentally challenged (EURUSD and GBPUSD) and yield intensive (AUDUSD and NZDUSD) pairs have seen corrections and congestion; the yen and franc based majors have remained incredibly consistent in their respective declines. Should these pairs reverse course, it could point to a critical shift for the dollar.

The absence of a meaningful risk appetite tendency Tuesday would prove beneficial for data that could be easily construed as supportive of stimulus - and thereby detrimental to the dollar. Top event risk was the October consumer sentiment survey from the Conference Board. The 50.2 reading was modestly better than what was forecasted; but being so close to a balance between optimists and pessimists does not bode well for this critical sector’s contribution to economic activity. Looking into the breakdown of the survey, we see that both expectations and current conditions figures advanced from a seven-month low. More influential at this stage in the game though is the deterioration in Americans’ confidence in employment and income trends. The percentage of participants reporting jobs as plentiful dropped to its lowest level this year while income expectations fell to levels last seen since April of 2009. Housing data would also give motive for pause. While home prices reportedly rose 0.4 percent in the lagging Federal House Finance Agency’s August report; the Case-Shiller price index slowed to a 1.7 percent annual clip from 3.18 percent in the previous reading. We will have to watch the health of the housing and lending markets closely as foreclosures revive the risk of massive mortgage-backed securities failures. This has the potential to be a new crisis for the US and globe.

For the coming 24 hours, the docket is once again full; but should we expect a different reaction from the dollar to this round of data than what we saw through Tuesday? That depends on whether the data taps into deeper uncertainties about the future of the United States’ economic and financial health. Ahead of Friday’s GDP reading, the durable goods report likely carries the most weight. Manufacturing has shoulder more than its fair share of the recovery burden; so a stumble in this figure’s pace can wear down confidence quickly. New home sales will hold the same level of influence of Monday’s existing sales report; but here the bigger picture of the housing market is more important. Look for a lean in risk trends prior to the release to garner of sense of whether this data will be market-moving.

British Pound Rallies after Strong GDP Reading Curbs Fear of a Renewed Recession, Stimulus Injection

The advanced reading of third quarter GDP for the United Kingdom certainly proved market-moving for the pound. Set against the backdrop of last week’s announcement of record government spending cuts (81 billion sterling) and a growing conviction for an expanded stimulus effort from the Bank of England next week, traders were watching this data particularly close. This focus would ultimately prove favorable as the 0.8 percent expansion of Europe’s second largest economy through September was double what the consensus was calling for and the annualized reading accelerated to its fastest pace in three years (at 2.8 percent). Does this mean that the UK will weather the economic fallout of fiscal restraint and the central bank find room to maintain its policy? Not necessarily. Yet, this does provide hope; and Standard & Poor’s decision to raise the nation’s credit outlook from ‘negative’ to ‘stable’ certainly helps. Nonetheless, expect speculation to heat up as the BoE decision approaches.

Euro Fails to Mount a Defense on its Own Fundamentals against a Strong Dollar and Pound

With both the US dollar and British pound climbing in an otherwise quiet session, it should come as little surprise that the euro was weakening. The liquidity on these two particular pairs carries a lot of weight for the crosses. For a fundamental perspective, the GfK’s consumer confidence survey for November held at its 30-month high. Wednesday, the focus is on inflation in the German CPI and Eurozone M3 statistics.

New Zealand Dollar could Show Volatility in the Face of an RBNZ Hold

In the afternoon hours of the upcoming US session, the RBNZ will announce its policy decision. Both economists and market participants are predicting that the central bank will keep the benchmark lending rate unchanged at 3.00 percent; but this could still be a market-moving event. Comparisons to the Aussie dollar are inevitable; and any dovish commentary from Governor Bollard can prove a significant burden to the kiwi.

Australian Dollar Tumbles after an otherwise Modest Disappointment from CPI

Interest rates are the key to the Aussie dollar’s success. Doubt of this assessment should be directed to the currency’s reaction to the third quarter CPI data. Headline inflation cooled more quickly than expect to a 2.8 percent clip (from above target at 3.1 percent previously) while the core figure slipped to 2.5 percent. If the RBA is more cautious about their stance, this relieves significant pressure for forced hikes.

Japanese Yen Benefits Speculative Wave even as another Stimulus Program Nears Approval

Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan’s cabinet reportedly approved the proposed next 5.1 trillion yen stimulus plan. While this program still needs to go through congress, it is highly likely that this program will pass. In comparison to the US or UK, Japan is proving far more liberal with its stimulus and fiscal support. And, yet the yen continues to appreciate. This is a speculative trend; and will therefore not last for very long.

EUR/USD Classical: Eyeing Key Neckline Support

Contributed by DailyFx

EURUSD_Classical_Eyeing_Key_Neckline_Support

EUR/USD: The market is in the process of rolling over and carving out what could be the right shoulder of a major head & shoulders top. Key neckline support comes in by 1.3695, and a break below will confirm reversal prospects and potentially open a material decline back towards a measured move objective by the 1.3300 area which also loosely coincides with the 50-Day SMA. The 10-Day SMA is also looking like it could be on the verge of crossing the 20-Day SMA for the first time since early September when the market was trading in the 1.2700’s. For now, look for any intraday rallies to be well capped ahead of 1.4000.

GBP/USD: As per our commentary in Tuesday’s analysis, rallies were indeed very well capped by 1.5900 and this keeps our bearish bias intact. Look for a lower top by Tuesday’s 1.5900 highs ahead of the next drop back below the vey well supported 50-Day SMA by 1.5650 and towards 1.5300 further down. Ultimately, only a close back above 1.6000 would negate outlook and give reason for pause.

USD/CAD: As expected, the market was very well supported on dips below parity, with the latest sharp bounce back above 1.0200 solidifying our constructive outlook and opening the door for significant gains over the coming weeks. Look for continued appreciation towards the multi-week highs by 1.0700 over the coming weeks, with only a break back below 0.9970 to ultimately negate outlook and give reason for concern. A higher low is now sought out by 1.0155 ahead of the next major upside extension to be confirmed on a break back above key short-term resistance at 1.0375.

USDCHF_Classical_27102010

USD/CHF: With daily studies finally crossing up from oversold and the market managing to close back above the 20-Day SMA for the first time since August, we are encouraged with the prospects for the formation of a major base by the recently established record lows at 0.9460. From here, look for any intraday setbacks to be well supported on dips towards 0.9700, with the market now eying a move towards next key resistance by 1.0000 over the coming sessions. Last week’s inability to extend declines to yet another record low below 0.9460, set up a strong bullish reversal week to end a sequence of 9 consecutive weekly lower highs. This further strengthens our constructive outlook and over the medium and longer-term we see significant upside risk.

Dollar Finds Balance as Big Ticket Fundamental Threats - G20, GDP, FOMC - Approach

It is interesting to see how influential policy officials’ comments can be on positioning. Ultimately, the impact their remarks have on the markets boil down to what the topic happens to be and the frequency with which it is brought up. For example, Japanese policymakers’ constant threats against the yen’s advance are interpreted as empty and impotent threats; while RBA Governor Steven’s select prognostications are often treated as the market’s own outlook. As for Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s sway, constant and repetitive reflections on the economy and currency have lost their charm. Therefore, it is interesting that many analysts and financial media outlets attributed a sharp rally in the dollar prior to Thursday morning’s Chinese GDP release to suggestions made by Geithner that currencies are “roughly in alignment.” This is a vague comment; and he has not pursued any policy directly aimed at manipulating the dollar. Yet, in the pursuit of an easy explanation, this is something to hang onto. More realistic is the notion that the impending threat of volatility in the wake of heavy event risk encouraged an early break that took advantage of pre-release liquidity and the need to defuse a bigger decline after the actual data. This is consistent with the modest advance through the end of Thursday – the fourth in the past five active trading days – as risk trends edged lower and stimulus slipped.

Fundamental developments are only as market-moving as speculative interests say they are. Over the past 72 hours, risk appetite trends have proven themselves to be the most influential dynamic when it comes to the dollar’s bearings. China’s growth update would provide a clear measure of confidence in the global economy and in turn define the value of the greenback as a safe haven and direct investment alternative to the world’s second largest powerhouse. Coming largely in line with expectations, the ‘surprise’ factor that often produces the greatest level of volatility was dampened. On the other hand, the deceleration in the country’s remarkable performance (to a 9.6 percent rate of annualized growth) would nevertheless remind investors that global activity was cooling and the best performers (for growth and returns) held their own risk. Being reminded that China is not a risk-free alternative to the United States financial, fiscal and economic troubles goes a long way to disrupt popular capital flows. In the meantime, the US Leading Indicators composite for September wasn’t a great rebuttal as the 0.3 percent growth can largely be attributed to rising stocks, low market rates and to an extent an improvement in manufacturing.

A fundamental current that continues to lose its authority over speculative interests are stimulus forecasts. Thursday, St. Louis Fed President Bullard remarked that a stimulus decision would not be made until after the 3Q GDP release (which he said may be stronger than 2Q), that the FOMC was not there to “ratify what the markets think,” and that he supported a program that moved in $100 billion market increments. All of this is deflates the massive easing program the market had priced in. We’ll see what Hoenig and Plosser say tomorrow. In the meantime, we need to keep a mind to the G20 this weekend and US 3Q GDP next week. And, off the docket, the mortgage-backed securities market is coming back to haunt us as foreclosures pick up. According to the Fed, foreigners are already bailing with their MBS holdings falling to a three-year low.

British Pound Collapses as Market Recognizes the Threat of Austerity and Weight of Stimulus

The full weight of the UK’s fiscal and economic position doesn’t seem to have fully set in – much like the US stimulus scenario was underappreciated until a month ago and Europe’s debt obligations are still ignored to this day. With the announcement of the government’s biggest spending cut (81 billion pounds) on record and the loss of nearly 500,000 public jobs, the United Kingdom is at significant risk of stalling in its recovery and in turn pinching its financial markets. As it stands, the consensus forecast for 3Q GDP growth is a sparse 0.4 percent. Chancellor of the Exchequer Osbourne recognizes this threat; and therein lies the reasoning for his comment that he would approve a “deployment” of stimulus from the BoE should activity stall. Through Thursday’s session, we see that mortgage approvals dropped to a 17-month low and retail sales were unchanged. The outlook for growth is diving, stimulus seems more likely and the argument for a rate hike is fading.

Euro Firm Despite a Drop in Economic Activity and Disappointing Auction for Spain

There are grander fundamental concerns for FX traders at the moment. This is no doubt why disappointing developments hold limited weight for euro price action. In the previous session, the Eurozone PMI figure hit a year low and Spain’s debt auction fell short of its maximum. Further off the beaten path, French strikes are going strong and Allied Irish subordinate debt holders are being asked to take an 80 percent loss.

Canadian Dollar Approaches another Fundamental Wave in Retail Sales and CPI

Once again, the Canadian dollar steps up for potential volatility when the rest of the calendar falls into a lull. However, how much can we expect from top tier economic indicators when the implications for interest rate expectations have been handicapped by the dovish turn from the BoC? The CPI data will tell us if there is any argument to be made for a rate hike while retail sales are still important to gauge economic activity.

Australian Dollar Falls in the Face of Stable Risk Trends as Chinese Economy Cools

Who stands to suffer most from a slower Chinese economy? While the cooling of the Asian giant is generally encouraging in the effort to curb an economic and asset bubble; the temperance means the imports of natural materials will necessarily drop as well. Australia happens to be one of the largest suppliers of metals and energy commodities to China. How well can Australia stand on its own in this volatile global market?

Japanese Yen: Economic Minister Warns a Collapse in Chinese Economy Would be Dire for Japan

Despite the simmering political tensions between Japan and China, policy officials understand the economic dependence between the two. This reliance is the basis for the Japanese Economic Minister and BoJ Governor to express their support for China’s decision to hike its benchmark rate to curb bubbles. It was the minister that said a crisis in China would cause severe problems in the island nation.
