    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 11th Sepember 2019.




    FX News Today

    * Asian bond markets in general under pressure as local investors caught up with developments in the US yesterday.

    * Excessive easing hopes continue to be scaled back ahead of the ECB meeting tomorrow and the Fed decision yesterday but with lingering hopes that governments will step up support for the global economy helping to underpin stock markets.

    * President Trump has fired National Security Adviser John Bolton.

    * The departure of Bolton has lifted hopes that the US will take a softer stance on China and North Korea and it also triggered a sell-off in oil amid hopes that tensions with Iran may ease.

    * China will lift limits on foreign investment, which underpinned brokerages.

    * News wires are citing a report from China’s South China Morning Post that China will buy more agricultural products from the US, to “sweeten” the trade deal. This should help add to optimism of more progress.

    * The WTI futures has recovered some of yesterday’s losses and is trading at $57.86 per barrel, after falling to a low of 57.20 in the wake of the Bolton announcement.

    Charts of the Day



    Technician’s Corner

    * Oil: WTI crude slid from $58.60 to $57.30 following news that NSA Bolton was fired by Trump. The ouster of the uber-hawk Bolton is equated by the oil market as an easing in potential conflict between the US and Iran. The WTI contract remains up over $1 from Monday’s low and the 200-day SMA.

    * USDJPY printed near 6-week highs of 107.84, continuing to be supported by hopes for a solution to the US/China trade dispute. US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin said recently there has been “lots of progress on talks” recently. In addition, a Reuters source report ahead of the US open indicated BoJ policymakers have discussed further easing measures, including cutting rates further into negative territory. This weighed on the Yen as well.

    Main Macro Events Today

    * Producer Price Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Headline PPI is expected at a -0.1% dip for the PPI headline in August, with a 0.2% rise in the core index. As expected readings would result in a y/y gain of 1.7% for headline PPI that matches the July gain, and a 2.2% y/y rise for the core, versus 2.1% in July. The y/y headline readings is anticipated in a 1.3%-2.0% range over coming months, while core prices should be in a 1.9%-2.3% range.

    * Crude Oil Inventories (GMT 14:30)

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 12th Sepember 2019.




    FX News Today

    * Treasury yields declined overnight, as sentiment improved and central bank decisions come into view.

    * Stock markets remained supported during the Asian session as trade jitters continue to ease.

    * Bolton’s departure in the US has triggered renewed hopes of a softer stance in the Trump camp and goodwill gestures from both China and the US have rekindled hopes that tensions can be resolved through talks after all.

    * President Trump said he will delay the next US tariff increase on China by about two weeks, after China yesterday published an exemption list of its own tariffs on US imports.

    * The final reading of German August HICP inflation brought no surprise, with HCIP confirmed at just 1.0% y/y, far below the ECB’s reference rate of 2.0%.

    * US and European futures are moving higher.

    * The WTI future is trading at USD 56.27 per barrel.

    * The focus meanwhile is turning to today’s ECB meeting, which is widely expected to bring a cut to the deposit rate, but could disappoint on the QE front and coming ahead of the Fed decision next week, many will see it as a bellwether for easing intentions at global central banks.

    Charts of the Day



    Technician’s Corner

    * The Dollar saw a 6-week high against the Yen, as goodwill gestures from both the US and China on the tariff front lifted risk appetite. The Yen continued to see its safe-haven premium deflate. USDJPY is trading over 108, in what is now a fourth consecutive day of ascent, which is in turn amid a third consecutive week of gains. AUDJPY and GBPJPY also continued to rise amid general strength in export-driven currencies amid the buoyant mood on the trade front.

    Main Macro Events Today

    * Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference (EUR, GMT 11:45 & 12:30) – The ECB is expected to cut deposit rate by 10 bp to -0.50%, with new tiered system to limit the impact. Most analysts are expecting a 10 bp cut in the deposit rate, which would leave it at -0.50%. The repo rate, currently at 0.00%, is likely to be kept on hold for now. The ECB is anticipated to re-open QE. There even is a risk that the restart of QE will be put on hold for now. With Lagarde taking over from Draghi in November, the pressure on governments to open their purse strings and complement an expansionary monetary policy with fiscal measures will likely increase.

    * Consumer Price Index and Core (USD, GMT 12:30) – The headline August CPI is estimated flat with a 0.2% core price increase, following July readings of 0.3% for both. As-expected gains would result in a headline y/y increase of 1.7%, down from 1.8% in July, while core prices should rise 2.3% y/y, up from a 2.2% pace in July. Overall, the inflation outlook remains benign, though we do expect an up-tilt in y/y gains into Q1 of 2020 due to harder comparisons.

    * Crude Oil Inventories (GMT 14:30)

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 13th Sepember 2019.




    FX News Today

    * Bond markets remained under pressure overnight and Bund futures are selling off ahead of the opening in cash markets.

    * Draghi’s policy bazooka and especially the promise of open-ended asset purchases helped to bring down BTP yields in particular but in core markets, it put pressure on the long end as risk appetite improved.

    * US President Trump said he would consider an interim trade deal on China and while there is nothing substantial yet, hopes that both sides are inching closer to a deal have been strengthened this week.

    * The GER30 closed above the 12400 mark yesterday with a gain of 0.4% and GER30 as well as UK100 futures are moving higher in tandem with, but underperforming US futures, after a positive session in Asia. Today’s data calendar is quiet, with only Eurozone trade data of note, which will leave investors to look to US releases while digesting the impact of yesterday’s ECB move.

    * China and South Korea were closed for a holiday, but elsewhere across Asia stock markets moved higher with investors hoping that central bank support and progress on the trade front will help to revive global growth.

    * US futures are posting gains of 0.2-0.3%.

    * The WTI future is trading at USD 55.12 per barrel and heading for a weekly drop after the IEA warned this week that OPEC and its allies are facing a looming supply surplus. OPEC+ urged its members to implement promised production cuts this week but didn’t discuss deepening cuts, while the IEA highlighted that production from competitors is set to surge.

    Charts of the Day



    Technician’s Corner

    * YEN: The Yen posted fresh trend lows against the Dollar, though remained just off the lows it saw against the Euro, Australian Dollar and other currencies yesterday. USDJPY printed a 6-week high at 108.26 in what is now the fourth consecutive day of higher-high making. The Japanese currency has been deflating amid a persisting phase of risk-on conditions in global markets.

    Main Macro Events Today

    * Retail Sales (USD, GMT 12:30) – A 0.1% August retail sales headline rise with a flat ex-autos figure is projected, following a 0.7% July headline rise with a hefty 1.0% ex-auto gain. Gasoline prices should prove a drag on retail activity given an estimated -3% drop for the CPI gasoline index, and unit vehicle sales should hold steady in August from a 16.8 mln clip in July. Real consumer spending is expected to grow at a 3.6% rate in Q3, following the 4.7% Q2 clip.

    * Michigan Sentiment (USD, GMT 14:00) – The US consumer sentiment fell 8.6 points to 89.8 in the final August print (92.1 preliminary), weaker than expected, after inching up 0.2 ticks to 98.4 in July. The preliminary September Michigan sentiment reading is forecast at 90.5.

    Date : 16th September 2019.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 16th September 2019.




    * Welcome to our weekly agenda, our briefing of all the key financial events globally. The week ahead is expected to be a massive one, as four of the major Central banks will announce their rate decision, i.e. Fed, BoJ, SNB and BoE. There is a lot of interest in seeing whether BoJ will follow the Fed’s steps next week in cutting rates.

    Monday – 16 September 2019

    * Industrial Production and Retail Sales (CNY, GMT 02:00) – The Chinese Industrial Production growth is expected to have risen, at 5.2% y/y in August from 4.8% y/y last month. A slightly positive reading is also expected in the Retail Sales figure at 7.9% from 7.6%.

    Tuesday – 17 September 2019

    * Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30) – The RBA minutes, similar to the ECB Reports, provide a detailed assessment of the bank’s most recent policy-setting meeting, containing in-depth insights into the economic conditions that influenced the rate decision. They are usually a cause for FX turbulence.

    * ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for September is projected at -38.0, from the lowest level since 2011 at -44.1 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The ZEW is a pretty clear indication that investors are gearing up for a much higher risk of a global recession, which ties in with developments in global bond yields and the marked flattening of curves.

    Wednesday – 18 September 2019

    * Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The UK CPI inflation is anticipated to be more underwhelming than the July data, at 1.9% y/y from 2.1% y/y, with a monthly rise up to 0.5% m/m.

    * Consumer Price Index and Core (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The final reading of inflation is expected to have held steady at 1.0% y/y and core at 0.9% y/y, with an increase in the monthly number at 0.2%m/m from -0.5%m/m. Lower energy price inflation keep a lid on the overall number meanwhile as CPI excluding energy moved up to 1.2% from 1.1% y/y last month.

    * Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The August CPI is expected to continue adding to the backing for steady BoC policy this year, even as the Fed and ECB add stimulus. CPI has been forecasted to grow to a 1.7% y/y pace in August, below the 2.0% last month.

    * Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference (USD, GMT 18:00-18:30) – The August’s jobs data did little to alter the market’s expectations for a 25bp rate cut at the September 17-18 FOMC meeting. Based on Powell’s latest comments, the Fed is very committed to a symmetric 2% inflation goal, hence given low inflation, interest rates will remain low. That leaves very little room to cut rates further. The Fed is not forecasting or expecting a US recession, nor a global downturn, said Powell. The fact that the chair doesn’t seem too concerned about a recession in the States, or the world, suggests the FOMC is not going to be aggressive easing policy.

    Thursday – 19 September 2019

    * Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement (JPY, GMT 02:00) – The BoJ kept its short-term interest rate target at -0.1% and its pledge to guide 10-year JGB yields around 0% while maintaining its asset buying program. The central bank is expected to signal once again its commitment to keep interest rates at current levels “for an extended period of time, at least through around spring 2020”. The BoJ pledged to keep an eye on the output gap, but for now at least it seems the bank is seeing the risks as coming mainly from the outside.

    * Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement (CHF, GMT 07:30) – The SNB kept policy on hold at the June council meeting. The Libor target was replaced with a key policy rate, but the central bank was adamant that the degree of monetary accommodation remains unchanged. After the ECB cut rates, while the Fed is now widely expected to ease rates, the SNB has little room to manoeuvre, especially against the backdrop of ongoing Brexit uncertainty and geopolitical trade risks. The SNB’s central message remains that the situation remains fragile and the currency “highly valued”.

    * Interest Rate Decision, MPC Voting (GBP, GMT 11:00) – Shadowed by the ongoing political developments in Brexit, the BoE is not expected to proceed with any interest rate actions.

    Friday – 20 September 2019

    * Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales and Core for August are seen steady, while the headline is anticipated to drop to 2.9% y/y from 3.3% and core to 2.5% from 2.9%.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 4th October 2019.




    FX News Today

    * EU to give Johnson one week to improve Brexit proposal. According to a Bloomberg, the EU’s chief negotiator Barnier told a private meeting of European senior diplomats that Boris Johnson’s latest blueprint for the Irish border fell far short of his conditions for a deal. The U.K. was given a week to improve on the plans.

    *European Outlook: Bund futures are fractionally higher ahead of the official open in Europe while Treasuries held yesterday’s gains. EGBs bounced back yesterday but the combined sell off in Gilts and FTSE 100 especially on Wednesday highlights that Brexit risks also raise stagflation concerns and has the potential to send all U.K. assets lower. DAX and FTSE 100 futures are higher, with the DAX future underperforming slightly, as the main index returns from yesterday’s holiday. EUR-USD is trading at 1.0969 as markets look ahead to the U.S. payroll report today, which will dominate the session, especially amid the lack of data releases in Europe.
    Charts of the Day



    Technician’s Corner

    * EURUSD opened the session at lows near 1.0950, and was steady into the U.S. services ISM. From there, a three-year low outcome saw the pairing vault to 1.0999 highs, as the Dollar overall, and Treasury yields headed lower. The pairing steadied between the highs and 1.0975 through the remainder of the session. Major Dollar pairings are liable to turn sideways through the overnight session, as traders anticipate the U.S. employment report on Friday. The jobs report may go some way in solidifying the growth outlook and the Fed’s policy path, and hence, future USD direction.

    * USDJPY bounced from near one-month lows of 106.87 seen into the N.Y. open, topping at 107.12 into the ISM data. The pairing slid to new trend lows of 106.48 after the data, taking its cue from a sharply lower Wall Street and a dive in Treasury yields. Heightened odds for another Fed rate cut at the end of October will likely keep a cap on the pairing for the time being.

    Main Macro Events Today

    * U.S. Employment Preview: It’s all about the September employment report. The data will go some way in solidifying the markets’ growth outlook and the Fed’s policy path after a rash of weaker than expected numbers on manufacturing and services fueled worries over a recession. But the markets have already priced in a Fed rate cut at the October 29, 30 FOMC, so this report isn’t likely to alter that outlook measurably. Expectations are for a 145k rise in non-farm payrolls, versus the previous 130k, though recent data suggests downside risks. Hourly earnings are seen rising 0.3% from 0.4% in August, while the unemployment rate should dip a tenth to 3.6% (lowest since the 3.5% for December 1969).

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 07 October 2019.




    * Welcome to our weekly agenda, our briefing of all the key financial events globally. The week ahead is expected to reveal weakness in the US and Canada, while it could give the views of central bankers regarding future rate cuts. In the Brexit front, time is short, with only a week of negotiations left until the Queen’s speech on October 14th and the EU’s summit on the 17th.

    Monday – 07 Octobr 2019

    * German Factory Orders (EUR, GMT 06:00) – The German industrial orders dropped by 2.7% m/m in July 2019, posting the biggest monthly decrease in factory orders since February, amid declines in both domestic orders and foreign demand. In August it is expected to fall only by 0.4% m/m.

    * Industrial Production (EUR, GMT 06:00) – Industrial production in Germany is expected to have dropped in August, reaching 0.3% m/m, higher though than the 0.6% fall in July.

    * Producer Price Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Headline PPI is expected to drop at -0.2% for September, with a 0.2% rise in the core index. As expected readings would result in a y/y gain of 1.5% for headline PPI, versus a 1.8% pace of August. We see y/y headline readings in a 1.0%-2.3% range over coming months, while core prices should oscillate in a 2.0%-2.5% range.

FOMC trimmed rates 25 bps, as expected, but with 3 dissents. In the last FOMC statement, on July 31 decision showed mixed views, two dissents for steady policy, two participants who wanted 50 bps in cuts and several wanted steady stance.

    Thursday – 10 October 2019

    * Gross Domestic Product and Manufacturing Production (GBP, GMT 08:30) – GDP is the economy’s most important figure. August’s GDP is expected to lower to 0% following the 0.3% reading from last month. Meanwhile, Industrial and Manufacturing Production will be out as well. These two indices are expected to have fallen, with both providing a downwards contribution of 0.1% m/m in August.

    * ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts (EUR, GMT 11:30) – Event of the Week –The ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts, similar to the FOMC minutes, provide information with regards to the policymakers’ rationale behind their decisions. In the last ECB meeting, ECB not only cut the deposit rate but also announced a new open-ended asset purchase program, worth EUR 20 bln a month, while removing the time frame in the rate guidance.

    * Consumer Price Index ex Energy and Food (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Consumer Price Index is suggestive of how the economy is performing, with expectations standing flat for the September headline release. A 0.2% core price increase is expected, following respective August readings of 0.1% and 0.3%.

    Friday – 11 October 2019

    * Labour Market Data (CAD, GMT 12:30) – August employment revealed a 81.1k jump in jobs, much stronger than expected, following the 24.2k drop in July. However September reading is expected to feel the negative impact of the stampede of global easing as banks look to counter the drag from trade. September’s unemployment rate in Canada is anticipated unchanged at 5.7% m/m, while the employment change is expected to post just 15K jump in jobs.

    * Michigan Sentiment (USD, GMT 14:00) – The preliminary US consumer sentiment for October is forecast at 90.6, 3.2 points below the final in September.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 8th October 2019.




    FX News Today

    * German industrial production better than expected at 0.3% m/m. The unexpected expansion in August comes despite ongoing contraction in orders and a deterioration in business sentiment.

    * European Outlook: European stock markets closed with broad gains, despite mounting signs that U.K. PM Johnson is positioning for a failure in Brexit talks with the EU, which shouldn’t come as a surprise, but makes the risk of a no-deal scenario ever more tangible as Johnson lays the ground for a “people-versus-parliament” election. European stock futures are moving higher in tandem with U.S. futures after a positive session in Asia.

    Technician’s Corner

    * EURUSD traded sideways through the NY morning session, ranging between 1.0982 and near two-week highs of 1.1000, in the Asian session the pair fell back to 1.0966. The Dollar overall appears to be showing signs of peaking, with incoming U.S. data last week showing significant indications of economic slowing. Europe has its own growth issues as well of course, though with markets pricing in another Fed rate cut at the end of October, EURUSD may have some room to run to the upside in the coming sessions.

    * USDJPY topped at 107.07 in US session following comments from White House advisor Kudlow, who said that a US-China deal was possible and negotiators could make progress this week, and Washington is open to looking at China’s proposals. The comments came after China over the weekend indicated it is not open to a broad scale trade agreement. USD strength continued overnight with the pair touching 107.44.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 9th October 2019.




    FX News Today

    * European Outlook: Stock market sentiment remains very cautious with Brexit risks and signs of fresh US-Sino tensions ahead of this week’s trade talks weighing on confidence.

    * Talks between the UK and the EU on trade are expected to officially break down this week, with “leaked” memos out of Westminster putting the blame firmly in the EU’s court and threatening those EU countries that support another delay of the Brexit date. UK PM Johnson is due to meet Irish Pm Varadkar later.

    * Overnight – US-China relations stressed further as new visa restrictions by the US were introduced. Trade talks on going and high level contact still scheduled Thursday & Friday.
    Equities markets fell 1.5% in the US and Nikkei has closed down 0.6%.

    * USD keeps the bid due to safe haven status, even after a Dovish Powell hints at rate cut (s) and starting to repurchase assets again.

    Charts of the Day



    Technician’s Corner

    * EURUSD pulled back to 1.0945 lows into the London close, after failing to decisively take out the key 1.1000 level over the past four sessions. US based accounts were sellers from near the open, stepping in over 1.0990. Safe-haven flows into Dollars and Treasuries were noted. Last Thursday’s 1.0940 low is the near term downside target, followed by Wednesday’s 1.0904 bottom. Trades on London open at 1.0960 pivot point.

    * Cable Cable was crushed to one-month low of 1.2195 in N.Y. morning trade, down from London highs over 1.2300. The BBC cited a UK government source saying that Germany’s Merkel conveyed to PM Johnson that a deal based on his government’s proposals was “overwhelmingly unlikely.”. The development makes it a near certainty that Johnson won’t have a deal by the October-19 deadline set out in the newly created parliamentary bill that would require the prime minister to ask the EU for an extension in Brexit to January 31.

    Main Macro Events Today

    Date : 10th October 2019.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 10th October 2019.




    FX News Today

    * US yields corrected slightly from yesterday’s highs. Asian bond markets remained under pressure, while stock markets traded mixed with conflicting trade headlines making for a jumpy session.

    * Bloomberg reported that the US is weighing to agree to a previously hammered out currency pact as a team of Chinese negotiators, including Vice Premier Liu He arrived in Washington.

    * There were also reports in the US that the Trump administration will grant licences that would allow US firms to sell no sensitive supplies to Huawei.

    * US stock futures are in red, with the headlines accompanying the trade talks, likely to keep markets volatile and jittery.

    * GER30 and UK100 futures are slightly higher, though, with Brexit developments in focus as UK PM Johnson is travelling to Ireland in search for a breakthrough on the Irish border conundrum.

    * German trade surplus declined as exports dropped -1.8% m/m in August.

    * ECB’s Rehn plays down divisions at ECB, banks on Lagarde to heal the rift. The Governing Council member said the FT story that said Draghi ignored advice from his own officials to push through the restart of asset purchases was “greatly exaggerated”, adding that Lagarde’s team-building ability should help to bridge the splits at the council.

    * The WTI future fell back to $52.54 per barrel.

    Charts of the Day



    Technician’s Corner

    * EURUSD rally above 1.099 in the European open. The 1.1000 level remains key for EURUSD, with Wednesday marking the fifth consecutive session that EURUSD has tried and failed to break through the level. A decisive close above this level could strengthen the positive bias for EUR.

    * USDJPY was a bit stronger through the Asia session, rallying to 107.76 highs, and remaining above the 107.40 since then. Better risk taking levels brought buyers in, as hopes for progress on the US/China trade war got a lift into Thursday’s high-level meetings in Washington. China said that it was open to a partial trade agreement. Given the history of the talks however, a smooth outcome is anything but guaranteed, and Yen bears will have to remain on their toes.

    * USDCAD headed to 1.3310 down from Asian highs of 1.3344. The modest sell-off came as oil prices rallied on news there may be some progress on the US-China trade front. The 200-day moving average at 1.3288 remains a good support level, with the pairing holding above the level for nearly a week now. Further oil price gains could see a break though, with the next downside target being the 1.3260-70 region.

    Main Macro Events Today

    * Gross Domestic Product and Manufacturing Production (GBP, GMT 08:30) – GDP is the economy’s most important figure. August’s GDP is expected to lower to 0% following the 0.3% reading from last month. Meanwhile, Industrial and Manufacturing Production will be out as well. These two indices are expected to have fallen, with both providing a downwards contribution of 0.1% m/m in August.

    * ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts (EUR, GMT 11:30) – Event of the Week –The ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts, similar to the FOMC minutes, provide information with regards to the policymakers’ rationale behind their decisions. In the last ECB meeting, ECB not only cut the deposit rate but also announced a new open-ended asset purchase program, worth EUR 20 bln a month, while removing the time frame in the rate guidance.

    * Consumer Price Index ex Energy and Food (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Consumer Price Index is suggestive of how the economy is performing, with expectations standing flat for the September headline release. A 0.2% core price increase is expected, following respective August readings of 0.1% and 0.3%.

    Date : 14th October 2019.

    MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 14th October 2019.




    * No-deal Brexit risks are looking more real than ever, with reports suggesting that talks will officially break down this week ahead of the upcoming EU summit on 17 and 18 October. Elsewhere, further US data and Fedspeak could provide more clues about the possibility of a Fed rate cut.

    Tuesday – 15 October 2019

    * Consumer Price Index (CNY, GMT 01:30) – September’s Chinese CPI is seen unchanged at 0.7% while the PPI figure is expected to decline further to -1.2%. The overall reading for CPI is estimated to post a gain up to 2.9% y/y.

    * ILO & Average Earnings Index 3m/y (GBP, GMT 08:30) – UK Earnings with the bonus-excluded figure are expected to slip to 3.7% y/y in the three months to August, down from 3.8%y/y. UK ILO unemployment is expected steady at 3.8%, which was the lowest rate seen since December 1974.

    * ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for October is projected at -27 from the -22.5 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though expected to declne further to -33.0 slightly from -22.4. A lower than expected outcome, ties in with the stagnation in market sentiment at the start of the month.

    * Consumer Price Index (NZD, GMT 21:45) – One of the most important figures for FX markets, the y/y CPI for Q3 is expected to come out at 1.4%, compared to 1.7% in the previous quarter.

    Wednesday – 16 October 2019

    * Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The UK CPI is expected to rebound to a 1.8% y/y rate in September after dipping to 1.7% in August from 2.1% in July. Weakness in sterling from year-go levels should impact some offset to disinflationary forces.

    * Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI is expected to be confirmed at just 0.9% y/y in the final release for September, although the deceleration in the headline rate over the month was largely due to base effects from energy prices, with core inflation actually moving up to 1.0% y/y from 0.9% y/y in August.

    * Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The Canadian CPI index is expected to have increased to 2%y/y compared to 1.9%y/y in August. The core CPI measures remained near 2.0%.

    * Retail Sales (USD, GMT 12:30) – Retail Sales are an important determinant of consumer spending thus making it a leading indicator for overall economic growth. Consensus expectations suggest that we should have increased by 0.2% in September, for both the retail sales headline and the ex-auto figure, following a 0.4% August headline rise with a flat ex-auto figure.

    * Fedspeak: Fed Brainard (USD, GMT 19:00)

    Thursday – 17 October 2019

    * European Council Summit on Brexit

    * Employment Data (AUD, GMT 01:30) – While the Unemployment Rate is projected to have flipped at 5.3% in September, Employment change is expected to have eased, increasing by 10K compared to 34.7K last month.

    * Retail Sales ex Fuel (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Retail Sales in the UK are anticipated to increase in September, reaching 3.0% on a y/y basis, and 0.5% on a m/m basis, from the 2.7% and -0.2% respectively

    * Housing Data and Building Permits (USD, GMT 12:30) – Housing starts should drop back to a 1.282 mln pace in September, after a sharp rise to a 1.364 mln clip in August with the help of lower mortgage rates. Permits similarly are expected to slow to 1.370 mln in September, after popping to 1.425 mln in September. Permits have shown a solid growth path into Q3 despite a July starts set-back.

    * Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Survey (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Philly Fed index is seen falling to 7.0 from 12.0 in September, versus a 1-year high of 21.8 in July and a 33-month low of -4.1 in February. The late-September producer sentiment surveys deteriorated significantly after firmness in the early-September reports, and the early-October data will be closely scrutinized to see if this pull-back continued. The “soft data” surveys are at risk of a possible impact from the UAW-GM strike, alongside the ongoing headwind from troubles abroad.

    * Fedspeak: Fed Bowman and Fed Williams (USD, GMT 18:00 and 20:20)

    Friday – 18 October 2019

    * European Council Summit on Brexit

    * China Gross Domestic Product (CNY, GMT 02:00)- Chinese GDP is projected to see additional moderation to a 6.1% y/y pace in Q3, from 6.2% in Q2.

    * Fedspeak: Fed Kaplan and Fed Clarida (USD, GMT 15:00 and 15:30)
