    Base Metals: Investor sentiment remains warry - ABN Amro

    FXStreet notes that current trends in the base metals markets are complex and rely more on macro-economic developments rather than fundamental drivers. The economic recovery expected in the coming months is set to support a strengthening of the sector in 2021, according to strategists at ABN Amro. 

    “Recent positive macro-economic trends in China and its massive infrastructure stimulus package underpins market sentiment. Chinese imports of metals has remained relatively strong, implying a high need for raw materials for its manufacturing sector.”

    “The uncertainty over the ultimate economic impact of the second wave of coronavirus remains high. Next to that, there are no deficits in base metals markets anymore and inventories are relatively high. This also overhangs the base metals complex and increases price volatility.”  

    “A further increase in this Chinese demand and solid macro-economic data going forward is likely to keep a floor under most base metals markets.”  

    “For 2021, global economic growth will show a recovery from current lows and base metals prices will strengthen further on this. Prices will also find support the trend in the dollar. A weaker dollar during 2021 makes metals cheaper for non-dollar holders and supports prices.”

    Canada’s new housing prices increase more than anticipated in September

    Statistics Canada reported on Wednesday the New Housing Price Index (NHPI) surged 1.2 percent m-o-m in September, following a 0.5 percent m-o-m advance in the previous month. This was the largest monthly jump in home prices in 14 years.

    Economists had forecast the NHPI to increase 0.5 percent m-o-m in September.

    According to the report, new home prices rose in 24 out of the 27 census metropolitan areas (CMAs) surveyed in September, with Victoria (+2.5 percent m-o-m) and Hamilton (+2.3 percent m-o-m) recording the largest monthly gains, as both CMAs offer affordable and large properties relative to larger city centers and are becoming more attractive choices for potential homebuyers who are able to work from home.

    On the contrary, Regina (-0.3 percent m-o-m) and Saskatoon (-0.2 percent m-o-m) were the only two CMAs with decreased new home prices in September.

    In y-o-y terms, NHPI climbed 3.2 percent in September, following a 2.1 percent gain in the previous month. This was the largest y-o-y advance since January 2018.

    Canada’s retail sales rise less than expected in August

    Statistics Canada announced on Wednesday that the Canadian retail sales rose 0.4 percent m-o-m to CAD53.19 billion in August, following an unrevised 0.6 percent m-o-m increase in July.

    Economists had forecast a 1.1 percent m-o-m advance for August.

    According to the report, sales at gasoline stations (+1.2 percent m-o-m) rose for the fourth straight month in August, while sales at motor vehicle and parts dealers edged down (-0.1 percent m-o-m) following three consecutive monthly increases.

    Excluding motor vehicle and parts dealers, retail sales grew 0.5 percent m-o-m in August compared to an unrevised 0.4 percent m-o-m drop in July and economists’ forecast for a 0.9 percent m-o-m gain. Excluding motor vehicle and parts dealers and gasoline stations, retail sales went up 0.4 percent m-o-m in August after decreasing 0.8 percent m-o-m in July, bolstered by higher sales at building material and garden equipment and supplies dealers (+4.5 percent m-o-m) and food and beverage stores (+0.8 percent m-o-m).

    In y-o-y terms, Canadian retail sales climbed 3.5 percent in August, following a revised 2.9 percent increase in July (originally a 2.7 percent rise).

    Fed's Governor Brainard: Premature withdrawal of fiscal aid risks entrenching recessionary dynamics

    • Aside from virus, biggest downside risk is no fiscal support
    • U.S. recovery highly uneven and highly uncertain
    • Q3 GDP has likely recovered more than half of its H1 decline
    • Financing conditions favorable for large businesses, tight for small businesses
    • Labor market improvement rapid but uneven, easiest gains behind us
    • U.S. rates likely to stay below neutral for a period after liftoff
    • In the months ahead Fed to clarify how asset purchases to best work with forward guidance
    • Premature withdrawal of fiscal support would risk allowing recessionary dynamics to become entrenched, holding back employment and spending, increasing scarring from extended unemployment spells, leading more businesses to shutter, and ultimately harming productive capacity

    BoE's Deputy Governor Ramsden: Negative rates would be a particular concern for UK banking system

    • BoE committed not to tighten policy until we are confident that it is appropriate to do so
    • QE is BoE's marginal policy tool
    • BoE could push UK yields lower
    • While there might be appropriate time to use negative rates, that time is not right now
    • MPC's earlier statement that negative rates at this time could be less effective still applies
    • Burden of proof for any future tightening is high
    • Negative rates certainly in toolbox for potential use in future as assessment of effectiveness changes
    • Lower bound is likely to be different across different countries
    • In some countries lower bound could be positive

    S&P 500 Index: Recent weakness to hold above the base at 3428/18 - Credit Suisse

    FXStreet notes that S&P 500 posted a relatively neutral session on Tuesday, completing an “inverted hammer” candlestick reversal, which reinforces the conviction that the “neckline” to its “head & shoulders” base and the 38.2% retracement of the recent recovery at 3428/18 will hold for a turn back higher, as per Credit Suisse.

    “The S&P 500 posted a relatively neutral session on Tuesday, completing a potentially bullish ‘inverted hammer’ candlestick reversal above the “neckline” to its recently completed base at 3428/27 and the 38.2% retracement of the recent recovery at 3420/18. This reversal pattern reinforces our view that 3428/18 will provide a solid floor for the uptrend to resume.” 

    “Resistance moves to 3477, above which would bullishly confirm yesterday’s session for strength back to 3516/18, then 3550, above which would trigger a move back to the 3588/94 high, which is also the upper end of its ‘typical’ extreme (15% above the 200-day average). Whilst this should clearly be respected, we look for a break in due course, with our ‘measured base objective’ at 3653.”

    Canada’s annual inflation accelerates more than forecast in September

    Statistics Canada announced on Wednesday the country’s consumer price index (CPI) fell 0.1 percent m-o-m in September, the same pace as in the previous two months.

    On the y-o-y basis, Canada’s inflation rate increased 0.5 percent last month, following a 0.1 percent advance in August.

    Economists had predicted inflation would decrease 0.1 percent m-o-m but gain 0.4 percent y-o-y in September.

    According to the report, price changes in transportation (+0.1 percent y-o-y compared to -1.3 percent y-o-y in August), recreation, education and reading (-1.2 percent y-o-y compared to -3.1 percent y-o-y), and shelter (+1.7 percent y-o-y compared to +1.5 percent y-o-y) components contributed the most to the September acceleration in the CPI. Meanwhile, the drop in gasoline prices (-10.7 percent y-o-y) in September was comparable to the August decrease (-11.1 percent y-o-y), while food price growth (+1.6 percent y-o-y) slowed slightly compared with last month (+1.8 percent y-o-y).

    Overall, prices rose in six of the eight major components on a year-over-year basis in September.

    The closely watched the Bank of Canada's core index rose 1.0 percent y-o-y in September after a 0.8 percent gain in August.

    07:30EurozoneECB President Lagarde Speaks    

    GBP strengthened against its major rivals in the European session on Wednesday, supported by upbeat comments on the UK-EU trade deal by the block’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier.

    While speaking to the European Parliament this morning, Barnier said that a trade deal with the UK “is within reach if both sides are willing to work constructively, if both sides are willing to compromise, and if we’re able to make progress in the next few days, on the basis of legal texts, and if we’re ready in the next few days to resolve the sticking points, the trickiest subjects”  He also pointed out that over the past few weeks progress had been made with on law enforcement cooperation, including protecting human rights, Europol, Eurojust, data protection and other areas and that “an outline is emerging for this deal on these points.” 

    “Our door remains open - it will remain open right up until the last day where we can work together. We’re willing to do intense work, to intensify talks day and night if that’s what needed to reach a draft agreement that will leave enough time for democracy”, he concluded. 

    In response to Barnier’s speech, the UK’s government said that they noted “with interest” his significant comments on the issues behind the current difficulties in talks and they are studying carefully what was said. They also promised that the UK’s chief negotiator David Frost will discuss the situation when he speaks to Michel Barnier later today.

    Apart from Brexit-related headlines, investors also continued monitoring the coronavirus-related news as the UK is struggling to fight Covid-19 resurgence. UK prime minister Boris Johnson stated today that the government is pursuing a local and regional approach to restrictions, adding that he does think that national lockdown is not the right policy.

    Market participants also received the UK’s inflation data for September. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) reported the UK’s consumer price inflation accelerated to 0.5 percent y-o-y last month from a near five-year low of 0.2 percent y-o-y in August. That was in line with economists’ forecast. Nonetheless, inflation remained well below the BoE's 2-percent target.

    U.S. weekly mortgage applications decrease 0.6 percent

    The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) reported on Wednesday the mortgage application volume in the U.S. fell 0.6 percent in the week ended October 16, following a 0.7 percent decline in the previous week.

    According to the report, refinance applications increased 0.2 percent, while applications to purchase a home declined 2.1 percent.

    Meanwhile, the average fixed 30-year mortgage rate edged up to 3.02 percent from record-low 3.00 percent.

    “Despite the uptick in rates, refinance activity held steady, with FHA refinance applications posting a 17.6% increase, helping to offset declines in the other loan types,” noted Joel Kan, MBA’s associate vice president of economic and industry forecasting.

    Gold: More weakness in the near-term before soaring to $2,000 next year - ABN Amro

    FXStreet notes that gold prices have struggled lately. A weaker dollar has supported the yellow metal somewhat but more investors have taken profit recently. Investors are now less convinced of another rise above $2,000 per ounce and are set to continue taking profits. However, economists at ABN Amro expect XAU/USD to race higher towards $2,100 in 2021. 

    “The US elections are approaching and we think that it is likely that more investors will take profit in gold for two reasons: First, more uncertainty could result in a more risk-off behaviour and thus liquidating long gold positions. Second, expectations of higher economic growth if Biden wins could temporarily support the dollar. As a result, gold prices will probably decline.” 

    “As the Fed will keep rates low for the coming years, US real yields will continue to be negative. This will support gold prices again in 2021.” 

    “Next year, we expect gold prices to move towards $2,000 per ounce again.”

    EUR/JPY maintains a mild downside bias while below 125.11 - Credit Suisse

    FXStreet notes that EUR/JPY moved sharply higher again on Tuesday, however, only a break above 125.11 would end the corrective risks for the core bull uptrend to resume, in the opinion of the Credit Suisse analyst team. Support stays at 123.03/01, then 122.38/23. 

    “EUR/JPY rebounded further on Tuesday after essentially holding above the potential uptrend from May earlier in the week. We stay biased towards further ranging here with a mild downside bias whilst below 125.11.”

    “An eventual break below the October low at 123.03/01 would reassert the correction and warn of a retest of the 122.38 late September low, then more likely we think key retracement supports seen at 122.27/23 – including the 38.2% retracement of the entire rally from the May low – which we continue to look to remain a stronger floor. A break though would instead raise the prospect of a deeper setback to the ‘neckline’ to the June/July base at 121.35, with scope for the 200-day average at 121.10.”

    A ‘blue wave’ in U.S. elections could bring forward Fed rate hikes - Morgan Stanley

    CNBC reports that according to Morgan Stanley portfolio manager a Democratic sweep in the coming U.S. elections will likely unleash more fiscal stimulus, but it could also cause the Federal Reserve to hike interest rates earlier than expected.

    The first rate hike by the Fed could be brought forward from around 2024-2025 to 2023-2024 — depending on how other policies, such as taxation, turn out in the event of a “blue wave,” said Jim Caron, a senior member of Morgan Stanley Investment Management’s global fixed income team.

    Caron said that the U.S. economy, under pressure from the coronavirus pandemic this year, was already expected to rebound in 2021. Additional stimulus that’s likely to come with a “blue wave” would boost that growth potential further, he added.

    US Elections: Biden win to be positive for commodities – ABN Amro

    FXStreet reports that according to the strategists at ABN Amro, the most likely outcome is that Biden wins the presidency and this result is set to benefit the commodity market.

    “We expect that Democratic policies would probably result in a considerably stronger US economy in the coming years. This is positive for commodities in general overall, especially if Chinese growth is resilient.”  

    “We also expect US real rates to remain negative or to decline further in 2021. This supports commodity prices due to the historical negative relationship between the two.”

    China will balance need for stabilising growth and preventing risks - central bank governor

    Reuters reports that central bank governor Yi Gang said China will strike a balance between stabilising economic growth and preventing risks, even as debt was allowed to temporarily rise this year to support the coronavirus-hit economy.

    Yi told that he expected China's macro leverage ratio to stabilise next year as the economy expands, after the debt gauge rose in 2020.

    "Monetary policy needs to guard the 'gates' of money supply, and properly smooth out fluctuations in the macro leverage ratio, and keep it on a reasonable track in the long run," Yi said.

    The Institute for International Finance (IIF) said in July that China's debt-to-GDP ratio was on track to hit 335%, from nearly 318% in the first quarter.

    Gold to extend the consolidation phase ahead of new highs – Credit Suisse

    FXStreet reports that gold consolidation extends, but with new highs eventually expected as the yellow metal holds the $1837 support, strategists at Credit Suisse apprise.

    “Gold extends its consolidation/correction following the move to our base case objective of $2075/80 in August, but is still holding flagged support at $1837, the 38.2% retracement of the rally from March.” 

    “We look for the $1837 support to continue to hold to maintain the sideways range ahead of a break above $1993 for a fresh look at $2075. An eventual move above here stays looked for a resumption of the core bull trend with resistance seen next at $2175, then $2300, although we continue to believe this will not be seen until next year.”

    UK house price index rises more than forecast in August

    According to the report from the UK Government, UK house prices increased by 2.5% in the year to August 2020, up from 2.1% in July 2020. Economists had expected a 2.4% increase. On a non-seasonally adjusted basis, average house prices in the UK increased by 0.7% between July 2020 and August 2020, compared with a rise of 0.3% during the same period a year earlier (July 2019 and August 2019).

    House price growth was strongest in England where prices increased by 2.8% in the year to August 2020. The highest annual growth within the English regions was in the East Midlands where average house prices grew by 3.6%. The lowest annual growth was in the North East, where prices increased by 0.2% in the year to August 2020.

    The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ (RICS) August 2020 UK Residential Market Survey results reveal that the sales market continues to show strong momentum, even if the longer term view remains cautious. National house price growth indicator hits a four-year high and most respondents foresee demand increasing for homes with gardens over the next two years.

    EU's Barnier says trade deal with UK 'within reach'

    "An agreement is within reach if both sides are willing to work constructively, compromise and working to make progress on the basis of legal texts and if we are able in the coming days to resolve the sticking points," Michel Barnier said.

    USD/CNH: Further pullbacks remain in the pipeline – UOB

    FXStreet reports that FX Strategists at UOB Group remain bearish on USD/CNH but a drop to 6.6030 looks unlikely in the short-term.

    Next 1-3 weeks: “We highlighted yesterday that ‘downward momentum in USD has improved further; next level to focus on is at 6.6450’. USD dropped to a low of 6.6563 during NY hours and closed on a soft note at 6.6647 (-0.21%). While we continue to expect further USD weakness, oversold shorter-term conditions suggest a slower pace of decline. A break of 6.6450 would not be surprising but the next major support at 6.6030 may not come into the picture so soon. Overall, USD is expected to stay under pressure unless it can move above 6.6980 (‘strong resistance’ level was at 6.7050 yesterday).”

    British finance minister says of soaring borrowing: things could have been far worse

    Reuters reports that after statistics showed state borrowing had soared while tax receipts had fallen, British finance minister Rishi Sunak said that things could have been far worse.

    “Whilst it’s clear that the coronavirus pandemic has had a significant impact on our public finances, things would have been far worse had we not acted in the way we did to protect millions of livelihoods,” Sunak said.

    “Over time and as the economy recovers, the government will take the necessary steps to ensure the long-term health of the public finances,” he said.

    During today's Asian trading, the US dollar declined against the euro and the yen, while the yuan rose against the dollar to the highest in more than 2 years.

    The ICE index, which tracks the dynamics of the US dollar against six currencies (Euro, Swiss franc, yen, canadian dollar, pound sterling and Swedish Krona), fell by 0.28%.

    Investors continue to follow the news about the package of new economic incentives in the United States. Speaker of The House of representatives Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday announced progress in negotiations with the White house.

    The focus was also on UK data. Consumer prices in the UK in September 2020 increased by 0.5% compared to the same month last year, the Office for National Statistics reported. Thus, inflation accelerated compared to August's 0.2%. Analysts on average also expected prices to rise by 0.5% year-on-year.

    US dollar’s safe-haven currency function is now markedly weakened – Natixis

    FXStreet reports that analysts at Natixis seek to determine whether the USD still plays this safe-haven currency role when risk aversion is high nowadays, and what factors could have changed this role. 

    “When risk aversion has become high, the dollar has traditionally played a safe-haven currency role, appreciating against the euro. A rise in risk aversion (1998, 2000-2001, 2008-2009, 2012, 2014, 2018-19) has led to an appreciation of the dollar against the euro. The dollar’s safe-haven role stems from the fact that when risk aversion is high (2008, 2012, 2014, 2018-19): Capital flows to the US from OECD countries, particularly from the Eurozone; but capital also flows to the US (the dollar) from emerging countries due to capital outflows.”

    “The COVID-19 crisis has not given rise to a lasting appreciation of the dollar against the euro. This can be explained by: An economic reason, concern about the rising US external debt; a political reason, the end of dollar purchases by many countries (China, Russia, OPEC).”

    EU ready to approve new measures for economies if necessary - European Commission Vice-President

    Reuters reports that European Commission Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis said that the European Union will be ready to approve new measures to support its member states should the economies suffer further after a new surge in COVID-19 cases.

    "We will certainly keep monitoring the situation closely and we are ready to react with new proposals, if necessary," Dombrovskis told when asked whether there would be a new Recovery Fund.

    Dombrovskis added that a new wave of coronavirus infections would "certainly have an effect" on the Commission's upcoming autumn economic forecasts.

    GBP/USD: 1.2860 should provide solid support - TD

    eFXdata reports that TD Research discusses GBP outlook.

    "For now, we think that 1.2860/65 should provide solid support in cable. The next major reassessment point to the upside does not come in until last week’s high at 1.3083, suggesting we have plenty of room to extend higher — as long as sentiment remains firm."

    "We note, however, that with the final days running down to a whole host of top-tier risk events and still a lot at stake, we are in a particularly mercurial and capricious time right now. This suggests the potential for sharp reversals and abrupt swings in the market’s mood are higher than usual," TD adds.

    UK consumer price growth accelerated in September

    According to the report from Office for National Statistics, the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) 12-month rate was 0.5% in September 2020, up from 0.2% in August.  

    The Consumer Prices Index including owner occupiers’ housing costs (CPIH) 12-month inflation rate was 0.7% in September 2020, up from 0.5% in August 2020.

    The largest contribution to the CPIH 12-month inflation rate in September 2020 came from recreation and culture (0.31 percentage points).

    Transport costs, and restaurant and café prices, following the end of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme, made the largest upward contributions (of 0.23 and 0.21 percentage points, respectively) to the change in the CPIH 12-month inflation rate between August and September 2020.

    This was partially offset by smaller downward contributions from furniture, household equipment and maintenance; games, toys and hobbies; and food and non-alcoholic beverages.
