Forex Week Ahead

FOREX_WEEK_AHEAD_RECESSION_FXPIG

Wall Street’s resilience will be tested again as some clarity emerges on whether the Chinese containment efforts were successful in limiting the spread of the virus globally.  The death toll and number of infections continue to rise in China, but optimism is growing the lockdown efforts in Hubei have prevented a broader breakout.  The coronavirus economic impact to Chinese growth is unknown and if the larger manufacturers decide to keep their workers at home even longer, markets will quickly have to price in further demand destruction.

Fed Chair Powell’s testimony to Congress will focus heavily on the coronavirus, the “new risk” to the economic outlook.  Congress will want further clarity on what the Fed is prepared to do and how will the coronavirus impact their current plans with the growing of the balance sheet.

On Tuesday, Democrats will get another chance at restoring voters’ faith in elections.  Wall Street is primarily interested in seeing if a progressive will emerge as the frontrunner for the democratic nomination.  Financial markets however might not see any strong shifts with risk appetite as President Trump is still favored to get re-elected.

Earnings season will also deliver critical updates from Alibaba, Cisco, Toshiba and along with several car and plane manufacturers.  The latest updates on production in coronavirus impacted regions will be closely followed. Extended halting of operations could start to weigh on multi-nationals.

US

The upcoming week has a busy calendar filled with US economic data releases, Fed speakers and Treasury auctions.  The US economy is strong and if growth reaccelerates and inflation picks up, we could see rate hike calls return once coronavirus concerns ease.  Powell’s testimony to Congress on Tuesday and Wednesday will be the main event with investors also paying a close look at retail sales and consumer sentiment data on Friday.

Phase-two trade talks are should not begin until China knows how big of a downturn the coronavirus will deliver to their economy.  China may push for some leniency in delivering some of the phase-one purchase commitments until travel has returned to normal.  The recent decision by the Chinese to halving tariff on US goods was done mainly with the hope the US will play nice until they know the overall impact the virus will have on their economy.

UK

Brexit trade deal uncertainty has been dragging down the British pound.  Expectations are mixed on whether Boris Johnson will be able to secure a trade deal before the end of the year.  In the meantime, the focus will shift to the reshuffling of his cabinet, which is not expected to be massive and the economic health of the UK economy.  Tuesday will see the release of preliminary fourth quarter GDP, December manufacturing and industrial production data and the trade balance release.  While we could see growth turn negative, expectations are for the December production readings to rebound.

Mexico

Mexico’s debt burden has the government scrambling for cash.  New regulations are coming and will impact foreign online businesses.  The proposed sales tax will likely have an impact on Amazon, Netflix, Airbnb and Uber.  Mexico has a very attractive tax rate for businesses, one of the lowest in the OECD, so the government might not see too much resistance with fresh taxes here. President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is trying to make up for a tax revenue shortfall of 3%, around 109 billion pesos.  AMLO is trying to not raise Mexico’s debt burden as they will see likely see a downgrade from the big three ratings and possibly risk a cut into junk status.  With the Mexican economy going through a downturn, AMLO will try to not kill the economy with tax increases.

On Thursday, Mexico is expected to see the Banxico cut rates again by 25-basis points.  Economic activity has been weak for Mexico and sentiment is falling with domestic demand.

Turkey

Emerging market FX will likely take a queue from the overall flight to quality trade. The lira might not see too many big swings from the release of December industrial production data nor the November unemployment rate.

Russia

The Bank of Russia has rate cuts on cruise control following the sixth consecutive rate cut and could very well cut again at the next meeting.  Russia is vulnerable to weakness in China and could see the ruble continue to weaken on safe-haven flows to the dollar.

US Politics

Following the debacle that was the Iowa Caucus, all eyes will be on Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary.  This is do or die time for Joe Biden and his campaign and if he has another disappointing outing that could be the end of his run for the nomination.

China

Coronavirus and its global spread remains the hot topic. News reports that the first person-to-person transfers outside of China should be causing concerns, but it hasn’t….so far. With a 14-day incubation period estimated for the virus, we are approaching the deadline when we will find if the containment/isolation process is a success.

So far only 2 deaths have been reported outside of mainland China, hence the bullish themes in equity markets this week. Data will likely continue to take a back seat with the Wuhan virus grabbing the headlines.

Next week’s data releases include CPI data for January (a slight increase is nothing extraordinary during the Lunar New Year period)  while retails sales and industrial production on Friday will suffer from the New year lockdown in some provinces.

Risk

No signs of a pause in the escalation in the spread and death toll from the Wuhan virus this week and next would hurt risk appetite, pressuring equities to the benefit of the usual safe havens of gold, the yen, Swiss franc, the US dollar and US Treasuries. It would be negative for oil and industrial metals.

Hong Kong

Anti-government protests have really taken a back seat with the coronavirus outbreak. Surprisingly, the number of Hong Kong cases remains relatively low (21 at time of writing) but there’s still the stigma of one virus-related death. The Hong Kong dollar is holding up pretty well, with USD/HKD still in the lower half of the permitted trading band. In the meantime, the offshore yuan has gained 0.35% versus the US dollar so far this week.

Risk

Any escalation in the coronavirus outbreak, especially given Hong Kong’s “connectivity” with the Chinese mainland (though border crossings have now been cut back to two locations) would be negative for the HK33 index and could push USD/HKD back to the upper half of the trading band. Carrie Lam is still under pressure to resign.

India

The Indian central bank left its benchmark rate unchanged at Thursday’s meeting. It was the second meeting in a row the Bank stood pat after five consecutive cuts in a row during the 2018-2019 period but the central bank said the decision was not a pointer for future policy and a pickup in growth can be achieved by other means rather than monetary policy. India now has three coronavirus cases.

Risk

The Central bank acknowledged that the local economy was sluggish, which would be helped by government spending.

Australia

RBA Governor Lowe has been moderate in recent speeches, almost suggesting he was unwilling to cut rates further. Local yields are higher this week and the Aussie has overcome disappointing data releases.

Risk

Gov Lowe expects a 0.2% hit to Q1 GDP as a result of the wildfires. If it’s more, it will be negative for the Aussie. However, that GDP data will not be available until June.

New Zealand

The RBNZ is expected to hold rates at Wednesday’s meeting, though given the coronavirus outbreak, we may hear comments about the preparedness/scope to ease policy.

Risk

A surprise cut would hurt the kiwi.

Japan

Nothing of note for this week

Risk

Not really applicable…..the stronger yen on the back of safe haven flows is not expected to influence the economy too much.

Market

Oil

After a fifth weekly decline with oil prices, OPEC + is still trying to see if they can do anything to prevent prices from collapsing any further. We were suppose to see a commitment of an additional cut of 600K  bpd, but the Russians needed more time to agree upon  it. Oil will have trouble stabilizing unless we see positive news on the virus front or if we see a significant amount of supply removed.

Gold

It seems gold prices are on the verge of ripping higher. The impact of the coronavirus on the global economy is unknown and it seems many investors may have been too optimistic.

Gold has been capped the $1,600 an ounce level, but if we see severe weakness when Asia returns to the market, we could easily prices target the $1,650 area.

Bitcoin

Bitcoin is getting a steady flow of good news that seems to make it poised to break above its recent $6,400 to $10,000 range.  Bitcoin is benefiting from some safe-haven flows, improved progress in mainstream usage, and as the heavily anticipated halving event in May nears.  While Bitcoin is not a true safe-haven, cryptocurrency demand improved following the recent escalations in the Middle East.  Progress on the Lightning network is also boosting hopes we could see further improvements in mainstream usage.  The recent rally is a part of a broader appeal for risky assets as optimism grows the coronavirus impact might be limited to the first quarter and on optimism that China will play nice with the US on phase-two trade talks.
