    U.S.: Economy in suspended animation – JP Morgan

    FXStreet notes that the U.S. Senate passed a 2.2 trillion USD stimulus bill to combat the devastating impact of COVID-19 and social distancing on the U.S. economy. These measures should be able to sustain the economy in a state of “suspended animation” for some time, according to David Kelly from JP Morgan Asset management.

    “This bill could limit the damage to GDP growth to a very negative second quarter, with the economy then slowly beginning a recovery late this year and then surging once a vaccine has been put in place.”

    “This package should be good for U.S. equities and other risk assets as it should leave U.S. corporations in a better position to weather the economic downturn and thrive in the rebound.” 

    “It should ultimately be seen as a negative for Treasuries, as a commitment to do ‘whatever it takes’ today could both boost inflation and undermine the credit-worthiness of the U.S. government in the years to come.”

    BoC: Better late than never – BMO

    NFXStreet reports that Benjamin Reitzes from BMO Economics notes that the Bank of Canada (BoC) has brought policy rates back to 2009 crisis low as the economic hit from COVID-19 is expected to be severe.

    “The BoC cut rates 50 bps to 0.25%, moving policy rates back to the lows seen during the financial crisis just over a decade ago.” 

    “The BoC announced it is officially joining the QE club, as it will purchase at least $5 bln per week in Government of Canada bonds, that equates to about 1% of GDP per month. Furthermore, the Bank is launching a Commercial Paper Purchase Program (CPPP) to support short-term funding markets.”

    “At the presser Governor Poloz addressed the option of negative rates, saying that while -0.5% is the theoretical lower bound for policy rates, it's something that's not high on their to-do list.”

    EUR/GBP: Towards the all-time high at 0.98029 – Rabobank

    FXStreet reports that analysts at Rabobank apprise that the price action in EUR/GBP fits into a sideways trend despite the often sharp moves witnessed over the past few years.

    “The upside has been limited by the resistance area at 0.94/0.93 and the downside has been constrained by the support area around 0.83.”

    “The monthly chart implies that the bias is skewed in favour of a break higher towards the all-time high at 0.98029 as EUR/GBP has been trading over the past few months above the pivot around 0.83.”

    BoC: Rate cut weakens the loonie – TDS

    FXStreet notes that the Bank of Canada (BoC) cut the overnight rate by 50bps to 0.25% today. The CAD weakened on the news, strategists at TD Securities inform.

    “The BoC cut rates by 50bps to 0.25% while unveiling two new programs to support liquidity.”

    “We think today's move reinforces that 1.40 in USD/CAD is an effective floor until we see activity pick-up again. We think it is both a heroic and dangerous assumption to assume that CAD's outperfromance earlier this week can continue.”

    “We think USD/CAD must trade higher. 1.45 marks a benchmark level for USD/CAD, but we reckon it will trade above this for some time.”

    U.S. consumer spending up 0.2 percent in February

    The Commerce Department reported on Friday that consumer spending in the U.S. rose 0.2 percent m-o-m in February, the same pace as in January. Economists had forecast the reading to show a 0.2 percent m-o-m growth.

    Meanwhile, consumer income climbed 0.6 percent m-o-m in February, also the same pace as in the previous month. Economists had forecast a 0.4 percent m-o-m increase.

    The February advance in personal income primarily reflected gains in compensation of employees and farm proprietors' income.

    The personal consumption expenditures (PCE) price index, excluding the volatile categories of food and energy, which is the Fed's preferred inflation measure, rose 0.2 percent m-o-m in February, following a revised 0.2 percent m-o-m advance in the prior month (originally a 0.1 percent m-o-m uptick). Economists had projected the index would rise 0.2 percent m-o-m.

    In the 12 months through February, the core PCE increased 1.8 percent, following a revised 1.7 percent growth in the 12 months through January (originally a 1.6 percent increase). Economists had forecast a gain of 1.7 percent y-o-y.

    U.S. consumer sentiment worse than initially estimated in March

    The final reading for the February Reuters/Michigan index of consumer sentiment came in at 89.1 compared to a preliminary reading of 95.9 and the February final reading of 101.0. That was the lowest reading since October 2016.

    Economists had forecast the index to be revised down to 90.0.

    According to the report, the index of the current economic conditions dropped 9.7 percent m-o-m to 103.7 from February's final reading of 114.8.

    Meanwhile, the index of consumer expectations plunged 13.5 percent m-o-m to 79.7 from February's final reading of 92.1.

    Richard Curtin, the Surveys of Consumers chief economist, noted that an 11.9-point drop in consumer sentiment in March was the fourth largest one-month decline in nearly a half-entury, which was due to the spreading coronavirus. "Stabilizing confidence at its month's end level will be difficult given surging unemployment and falling household incomes", he added. "The extent of additional declines in April will depend on the success in curtailing the spread of the virus and how quickly households receive funds to relieve their financial hardships."

    USD traded mixed as in the European session on Friday as coronavirus situation reined in some market optimism, boosted by the fiscal and monetary efforts to support the coronavirus-hit economy.

    The U.S. dollar, the world’s most liquid currency, fell against GBP, CHF and JPY, as pledges of the wolds' governments of hefty economic stimulus, including a $2.2 trillion U.S. package, and efforts by global central banks to increase the supply of dollars bolstered a rally in other major currencies. A record surge in U.S. weekly initial jobless claims and the fact the U.S. is now the country with the most confirmed cases of COVID-19 put additional pressure on the U.S. dollar.

    Meanwhile, USD rose against EUR as the EU still struggles with the stimulus to support the region's economy. It also gained against most currencies that are closely tied to commodities, including NZD, CAD and NOK, but traded little changed against AUD.

    USD/CAD: Fading the dip – Credit Suisse

    NFXStreet reports that analysts at Credit Suisse inform that USD/CAD remains in a consolidation phase after the dramatic surge came to a temporary stall just ahead the 2016 high at 1.4660/90.

    “Below 1.4148 has completed a small top to suggest a particularly nasty correction may occur, with next supports for a pullback seen at 1.4012/3961, however we would certainly look to fade this dip.” 

    “The market still holds a very large bull ‘wedge’, keeping our broader bias to the upside post a correction, with resistance seen initially at the aforementioned 1.4690. Removal here would see a further acceleration towards the next resistance at the ‘neckline’ to the 2001/02 top at 1.5035.”

    “The economy remains weak, and the huge shock to supply chains will be felt for some time.”

    Currencies: Robust Japanese yen – TDS

    FXStreet reports that given the large moves seen across markets, analysts at TD Securities are starting to see more attention on month- and quarter-end rebalancing flows, especially ahead of the Japanese FY end next week.

    "The USD/JPY pair has had a decent move lower. We continue to like downside potential there and seem likely to trade to 105 if we can close below 108 today.

    "The bounces we've seen in EUR and GBP are starting to look a little tired and may reverse."

    "In the AUD/USD pair, we think it would be worth chasing a push below trendline support that comes in at around 0.5970 on the hourlies today if we do happen to get one."

    China: Back in business – NAB

    FXStreet reports that it may be some time before China returns to normal activity levels given the likely slower recovery in confidence and the weaker global economic environment due to the virus spread, Gerard Burg from the National Australia Bank reports.

    "We expect an unprecedented decline in China's GDP in Q1, down by 12% yoy."

    "We expect the rebound in China's economy will be spread across Q2 and Q3. For the full year, we now forecast no growth."

    "Due to the weakness in early 2020 (particularly in Q1), the resumption of normal activity in China will result in a rapid acceleration in annual growth in 2021, now revised up to 10.9%."

    US: Big business for big crisis – Rabobank

    FXStreet reports that the third and largest bill dealing with the corona crisis came out of a battle between Republicans and Democrats about who should benefit: businesses or households. It appears that in order to get both parties to agree, the cost of the bill has increased, per Rabobank.

    "The House of Representatives is expected to approve the $2.2 trillion fiscal stimulus package that the Senate passed yesterday."

    "Jobless claims report suggests that the unemployment rate is already at about 10%. We would not be surprised to see unemployment peak at 20-30% in the coming months."

    "The big fiscal stimulus package is not likely to prevent a very sharp contraction of the economy in March and April, but it could help soften the impact in the remainder of the year."

    "If the corona crisis lasts longer than the US lawmakers anticipated when writing this bill, we may see even more trillions pumped into the US economy during the course of the year."

    The S&P 500 just hit a level that could spark the next meltdown - Canaccord Genuity

    CNBC reports that the stock market's three day win streak may be in jeopardy. Canaccord Genuity's Tony Dwyer warns the S&P 500 just hit a level that sets the stage for another meltdown as the country copes with the coronavirus impact.

    "We put 2,575 as a level for this relief rally," the firm's chief market strategist told CNBC's "Trading Nation".

    The S&P 500 is coming off its biggest three day gain since 1933. On Thursday, it closed up more than 6% to 2,630. However, it's still almost 23% off its record high.

    Dwyer cites human nature of fear as the likely catalyst to interrupt the latest leg higher.

    "Once you make a panic low, you typically have this relief rally," Dwyer said. "Unfortunately, the vast majority of time you go back down and test that low."

    But his forecast isn't all doom and gloom. It carries optimism, too.

    "You've already panicked, so down 34% at the low to say that it's going to get significantly worse is not the case," he added. "The time to be cautious was in January and February. We made the panic low. While we may test that low, it's not the time to get scared."

    Dwyer, a long-term bull, has warned for weeks the coronavirus pandemic would spark a deep economic shock.

    Gold: Weakness as the USD strengthens – ABN Amro

    FXStreet reports that gold prices fell sharply at a time when there was panic on equity markets and frantic buying of the dollar though last week, the dynamics changed. Strategists at ABN Amro expect weakness in the yellow metal price.

    "The closure of gold refineries in Switzerland, resulted in a sense of shortage in physical gold at a time that more investors wanted to buy. So gold prices moved back to USD 1,600 per ounce."

    "We continue to expect weakness in gold prices as sentiment on financial markets deteriorates again and the US dollar strengthens."

    "Long gold is still a crowded trade, especially investment gold. The sense of shortage in physical gold could continue as long as the refineries are closed. Investors may start to realise that they may not have the gold investment that they would have loved to have."

    EUR/USD: Resistance at 1.1083/1146 caps the rebound higher – Credit Suisse

    FXStreet reports that EUR/USD is now in a short-term consolidation phase following the sharp reversal lower last week and is bouncing from the bottom of the medium-term channel downtrend, analysts at Credit Suisse brief.

    "A clear and conclusive break beneath pivotal supports at 1.0815/1.0752 would see the downswing accelerate further, with next key support seen at the April 2017 low at 1.0570, before the February 2017 low at 1.0494."

    "Resistance at 1.1083/1146 ideally caps the rebound higher. Above would suggest the market is undergoing another turn higher within the shallow channel downtrend."

    Oil: Price recovery as soon as economy relive – ABN Amro

    FXStreet reports that after the failure of the OPEC+ meeting to reach a new production cut agreement, the risk of an even bigger supply glut triggered profit taking on long positions and oil prices were pushed down, strategists at ABN Amro report.

    "Global oil demand dropped and expectations are that in Q2 even between 10-15% of global demand will diminish. This pushed prices down to the lows of 2002/03."

    "We have revised our oil price forecast lower. For the coming months, oil prices will remain volatile and could see even more downward pressure."

    "We think that this will be temporary and an oil price rebound towards USD 45/bbl could be seen as soon as the coronavirus measures are cut back and the economy starts to recover."

    UK car production declines 0.8% in February - SMMT

    According to the report from Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), british car manufacturing fell -0.8% in February. Some 122,171 vehicles rolled off production lines in the month, representing a loss of just over 1,000 units compared with February 2019. The decline was driven by slower demand in some key global export markets.

    In the month before the coronavirus pandemic started to be felt in the UK, global shipments fell -3.1% to just short of 95,000 units. Although combined EU demand rallied (up +3.6%), exports to the US and Asia fell substantially. Meanwhile, there was positive news for the domestic market, where output rose +7.8%, with 27,172 cars produced. Year-to-date figures show a -1.5% year-on-year drop in overall production.

    Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said: "Despite the myriad global challenges the UK automotive industry has faced in recent times, it remains fundamentally strong and February's figures reflect that. However, these figures also reflect the calm before the storm. With UK car plants now effectively on national shutdown and many global markets closed, the outlook is of deep concern. We wholeheartedly welcome government's extraordinary package of emergency support for businesses and workers, but this must get through to businesses now. If we're to keep this sector alive and in a position to help Britain get back on its feet, we urgently need funding to be released, additional measures to ease pressure on cashflow and clarity on how employment support measures will work".

    Asian session review: the US dollar fell against major currencies

    During today's Asian trading, the US dollar fell against the main world currencies on the background of some improvement in market sentiment due to the authorities ' promises to support the global economy in the face of the spread of coronavirus infection.

    Investors are pinning their hopes on measures taken by governments and Central banks in various countries that are easing monetary policy and introducing programs to stimulate the economy, which has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

    In the US, the number of initial jobless claims rose sharply last week - from 282 thousand to 3.283 million, which is the highest figure since data began to be recorded in 1967.

    The head of the Federal reserve system Jerome Powell said that the US economy will recover, and the Central Bank will contribute to this. The Fed will continue lending and help change the situation after the situation with the spread of COVID-19 is brought under control.

    The European Central Bank (ECB) on Thursday began buying bonds as part of an emergency program of 750 billion euros, designed to support the euro zone economy in the crisis caused by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. "The ECB will explore all options and opportunities to support the economy and help it cope with this unprecedented shock," the ECB said in a statement.

    Market participants are also waiting for the adoption of the law on measures to support the US economy by $2 trillion. The US Senate, after delays related to the settlement of another disagreement between Republicans and Democrats, approved it on Thursday night. The document will now go to the House of representatives and is expected to be approved as early as Friday or Saturday

    NZD/USD: There is still room for a move above 0.6100 – UOB

    FXStreet reports that in light of the recent price action. NZD/USD could still advance to the 0.6170 region, noted FX Strategists at UOB Group.

    24-hour view: "NZD soared to an overnight high of 0.5986. The firm daily closing in NY (0.5962) suggests there is room for further NZD strength towards 0.6050. This level is a strong resistance and may not yield so easily (next resistance is at 0.6080). Support is at 0.5930 followed by 0.5900."

    Next 1-3 weeks: "The strong +1.89% surge in NZD yesterday came as a surprise. The price action suggests that last week's 0.5469 low is short-term bottom. The current recovery has room to extend to 0.6150. On the downside, only a break of 0.5840 ('strong support' level) would indicate the current upward pressure has eased."

    GBP: Still 10 big figures below where it was trading at start of march; room for further gains n-term - MUFG

    MUFG Research discusses GBP outlook and sees scope for further gains in the near-term.

    "The pound's rebound has been less impressive so far. Cable has risen back towards the 1.2100-level after hitting an intra-day low of 1.1412 on the 20th March, but still remains around 10 big figures below where it was trading at the start of the month," MUFG notes.

    "Financial market conditions would need to normalise further in the near-term to encourage the pound to extend its rebound," MUFG adds.
