Forexlive America’s FX news wrap: US job gains impressive. Fed officials little more dovish. Nasdaq record close.

Forex news for NY trading on May 3, 2019

In other markets, the snapshot is showing

  • Spot gold, plus $ 8.15 or 0.64% at $ 1278.78. The USD was the weakest of the major currencies and that helped to propel the precious metal higher.  Yesteday, the price fell to the week’s low at a lower trend line and bounced (see post here from yesterday outlining that support level). 
Gold bounced off a trend line this week
  • WTI crude oil futures up $ .06 or 0.10% at $ 61.87. The contract this week traded to a low of $ 60.95. That was at the 200 day MA. The level will be key in the new trading week.  For the technical look CLICK HERE 
  • Bitcoin on Coinbase is trading up $ 283 at $ 5691.  For a technical look CLICK HERE

Although US stocks closed the week little changed, it took a heroic effort today to reach those “near unchanged” levels (Nasdaq was up 0.22%, S&P was up 0.20% and Dow was down -0.14%).   The Nasdaq index today closed up 1.58% and the S&P closed up nearly 1%. The Russell index did even better with a gain of 1.98%. 

The US shares were boosted by a combination of some Goldilocks data in the US and some more dovish comments from Fed officials that implied rates on hold for a while, with the potential for a cut if inflation expectations move lower. That sentiment dulled some of the “inflation is transitory” talk from Fed’s Powell after the FOMC decision on Wednesday.  

In Europe today,the major indices were mixed with Spain and Portugal closing marginally lower.

Below are the changes and ranges for the major indices in North American and Europe today.

US stocks ended higher while European shares were mixed
In the interest rate market in the US today, yields fell after being higher earlier in the day.  Below are the ranges and changes across the yield curve:

US yields went from positive to negative today
For the benchmark 10 year European notes, rates are closing mixed.

Benchmark 10 year yields in Europe were mixed
So what caused all the hoopla in the markets today?

The US employment data for April was released and showed an above trend jobs gain of 263K vs 190 estimate.  That came on the back of a 189K gain in the prior month.  In addition, the Unemployment rate fell to 3.6% from 3.8% last month.  Not as great, and helping to contribute to the Goldilocks idea is that the participation rate fell to 62.8% (that helped to lower the unemployment rate) and wages were also a bit lower than expectations.  

The dollar moved higher on the headlines, but quickly reversed and moved lower as traders started to view jobs with spending, but wage inflation relatively contained – especially give the 3.6% unemployment rate.  

The biggest mover was the GBPUSD which fell to test the 100 day MA at 1.29809, only to have buyers sitting there and pushing the price back higher. The pair is closing near the highs for the day at 1.3177 (trading at 1.3168 near the close). The pair rose 1.04% on the day.  Overall. the GBP was the strongest of the major, while the USD was the weakest (see chart below ranking the strongest to the weakest).

The GBP was the strongest wall the USD was the weakest today.
Also helping the sentiment for the markets today was the Fed speakers. 

The quiet period that runs before the FOMC meeting, led to alot of suppressed chatter today from Fed members.  

Feds Bullard, Evans, Williams, Clarida, and Kaplan were all on the wires and they generally were not raising the future inflation alarm that the markets got a little concerned about during Powells press conference after the FOMC decision.  

There was also some overtures that should the inflation expectations fall, the Fed could look to ease (Bullard the dove was the dovish of course). 

Also chirping away was the White House tag team of Kudlow, Hasset and even VP Pence who tagged teamed on the business news channels with the storyline that 4% growth was doable AND the Fed should contiinue to ease as inflation was no where to be seen. 
 
That’s the type of stuff that markets love.  So the yields went from positive to negative, stocks soared and the US dollar fell.  GOLD – I – LOCKS!

We will see how things shake out on Monday. Employment day moves can tend to lose their mojo after the weekend as traders reaccess what the hell they did.  However,  for now, stock portfolios got a nice boost and the longs in the USD (the CBOT said late in the day that the longs were the highest siince December 15) got squeezed a bit.  

Wishing you all a great weekend and thank you for your support.

Argentine peso ends rollercoaster week with record low close

By Walter Bianchi and Adam Jourdan

BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) – Argentina’s peso fell back on Friday afternoon to post a record low close, giving up earlier gains after a tumultuous week that saw the currency battered to its weakest ever level and local debt pummeled as anxious investors fled.

The peso closed at 45.95 to the dollar, traders told Reuters, down around 1.85 percent on the day though still up on Thursday’s intraday low of 46.5. Markets had been somewhat salved by official interventions in the market and higher interest rates on short-term “Leliq” notes, they said.

Argentine bonds and the peso have been hammered this week as uncertainty over a biting recession and high inflation frayed investor nerves about political upheaval in Latin America’s No. 3 economy ahead of elections in October.

“Investors will remain worried until you see the elections happen. Unfortunately that’s a recipe for further volatility,” said Ilya Gofshteyn, New York-based senior emerging markets strategist at Standard Chartered (LON:) Bank.

He said President Mauricio Macri still had a decent chance of re-election, the country was in better shape than in the past to counter the crisis, and that inflation should gradually slow. However, investors would demand high returns to stay in the market given the risks, he added.

The yield of Argentine government bonds due in 2021 have shot up above 18 percent and credit default swaps (CDS) of Argentine five-year debt rose to 1,229.25 points, a reflection of a rising chance of default.

The turmoil has raised the heat on Macri after a week in which domestic media ran blanket coverage about a renewed crisis, threatening to derail his plans for re-election and bolstering his political rivals.

The recession-hit country spiraled into a currency crisis last year that forced Macri to take a $ 56 billion credit line from the International Monetary Fund. In 2018 the peso lost half its value against the dollar and inflation was close to 50 percent.

The peso fell 2.48 percent on Thursday after a 3.53 percent slide the day before. It was down 8.81 percent for the week.

Most economists said the market turmoil had been linked to a poll earlier in the week that suggested Macri’s arch rival, populist ex-President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, could beat the pro-market leader in an election run-off.

MACRI VS MARKET

Macri defended the government’s economic reforms on Thursday, saying they had established an independent central bank and a balanced budget. He added change took time and volatility was to be expected.

“The markets are different, they are types who are behind a computer in a faraway place, who buy, sell and have a short-term, opportunistic vision,” he said in comments made to local radio and circulated by his office.

“There is a huge majority of Argentines who do not want to go backwards and who want to go into the future.”

Macri’s fortunes are likely to rest on what happens in the economy in coming months, including whether he is successful in bringing down inflation that was 4.7 percent in March and is running at a 12-month rate of close to 55 percent – driving investors out of the peso.

Morgan Stanley (NYSE:) said in a research note it thought the market price of the peso was “too pessimistic,” but it preferred to “wait on the sidelines” given the stubbornly high inflation and hard-to-call election race.

That may leave little upside for the peso.

“With inflation continuing to rise and the domestic economy still suffering it is hard to paint a picture where ARS (Argentine peso) rallies significantly,” Rabobank strategist Christian Lawrence said in written comments.

“The elections are of course key but there are concerns that Macri is essentially trying to fight ‘kirch with kirch’ by adopting populist policies in an attempt to woo voters tempted to return to the days of pre-Macri.”
