• ForexLive Asia-Pacific FX news wrap: Subdued forex ranges here Link
    ForexLive Thu 11 Aug 2022 02:51
    USD/JPY is trading back above 133.20 as I update after lows during the session circa 132.62. Apart from the yen, major FX traded in very small ranges in Asia post-CPI data in the US on Wednesday. What movement we did have was in the form of continued retraces of the sharp USD weakness witnessed after the data. A market holiday in Japan thinned out trading a little. When Japan is closed physical US bond trading in the APac region grinds to a halt. This does not always result in lacklustre forex moves but today it was quiet indeed.

    many retailers overstocked their inventories, GS estimates currently $20 bn—this translates to 3% of annual retail spending and 0.5% of total core goods spending. If all that excess inventory were put on sale at a markdown of 20% it would only translate to 0.1% of downward pressure on inflation

  • Premature to judge whether the Fed’s next move in September will be a 50 or 75 point hike Link
    ForexLive Wed 10 Aug 2022 23:35
    Core CPI was up by just 0.3% m/m which was softer than expected and ends or at least suspends a string of firmer readings that often surprised higherHeadline CPI was weaker than expected partly because of core but also because gasoline prices fell by more than anticipated in seasonally adjusted terms (-7.7% m/m). it’s premature to judge whether the Fed’s next move in September will be a 50 or 75 point hike given that we’ll get one more PCE reading which is the Fed’s preferred measure, one more CPI print and another jobs report before then plus the fact that September often carries its own surprises along the way. At this point, I think a reasonable perspective would lean heavily against the view that one softish CPI print would dissuade the Fed’s hawks. They may trade-off the one CPI downside surprise against the ongoing tightening in the US job market and concern that wage pressures present the risk of more persistent inflation. In any event, I continue to think we’re dealing...

    The moves in gold, after the initial euphoria wore off, are indicative of what is still to come from the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) (spoiler, eye-watering rate hikes).

  • Morgan Stanley maintains a tactical bullish bias on CHF, see further fall for EUR/CHF Link
    ForexLive Wed 10 Aug 2022 21:49
    "We remain constructive on CHF and long CHF/NOK. Over time, we think fundamental factors continue to point to further CHF strength. The SNB should persist with its preference for a stronger currency amid strong and more persistent inflation, euro area growth risks are asymmetrically skewed to the downside, and recessionary concerns around the world are rising, with the BoE having just warned of a prolonged recession," MS notes. "This points to inflows for safe-haven currencies like CHF and, over time, we continue to see EUR/CHF moving lower to 0.95. USD/CHF should continue to be driven more by the broader USD trend," MS adds.
