USD Stable After FOMC Expectedly Leaves Fed Funds Rate Unchanged

Talking Points:

  • The Fed has hiked interest rates three times this year and is favored to hike again at the next meeting
  • The meeting will be accompanied by a quarterly report from Chairman Powell and a press conference
  • Dollar movement was tempered as the decision met market expectations

The Federal Open Market Committee decided not to change the Fed Funds rate range Thursday, a decision widely expected by investors. Consequently, the Dollar enjoyed little price movement. In the accompanying policy statement, Fed officials continued to express a plan to normalize rates as they see reason for “further gradual increases.” Similarly, officials again expressed the view that “risks to the economy remain equally balanced.”

One notable revision in the policy statement was an alteration to the Fed’s view of fixed business investment growth. In the previous statement, they found the sector to be “growing strongly.” In Thursday’s report, language regarding fixed business investment was revised to “has moderated from its rapid pace earlier in the year.”

While this month’s decision may have been devoid of significant reaction, Thursday’s meeting is the final meeting on the calendar for 2018 that is not accompanied by a live event. Thus December’s rate decision, quarterly projections, and subsequent press conference will likely have a much larger market reaction.

As of Thursday, CME Fed Futures have the probability of a 25 basis point hike come the next decision at 75%.

Once we tick into the New Year, every FOMC decision will be followed by a press conference. The change was announced in June as Chairman Powell seeks to provide further clarity regarding the Fed’s thought process.

Commenting on the new record-breaking trading volume, Mr. Ingmar Mattus, Executive Director of Tickmill Group Ltd noted that, “The $145.53 billion in trading volume sets a precedent for the Group and allows us to come closer to what we have previously described as the next logical milestone for the company – the $200 billion in trading volume.

Cours de l’argent : le FOMC ce soir pourrait appuyer la tendance baissière sur l’once
  • FOMC ce soir aux USA
  • La Fed pourrait se montrer plus « Hawkish »
  • Le dollar Américain pourrait donner la tendance

Le cours de l’argent reste fortement impacté par le cours du dollar Américain mais également par la conjoncture économique mondiale. En effet le cours de l’argent à de nombreuses propriétés industrielles et les craintes d’un ralentissement économique global pèsent sur le cours de l’once.

Fed : communiqué du FOMC ce soir

Après les mid-terms et le rebond des marchés initié par la suite, les investisseurs se tournent désormais vers la Fed et le communiqué du FOMC ce soir à 20h. Bien que le taux d’intérêts ne doive pas être modifié avant décembre les marchés surveilleront avec attention le langage utilisé dans ce communiqué afin de tenter d’anticiper le rythme du resserrement monétaire à venir.

Powell : le resserrement pourrait s’accélérer

En effet aux vues des solides publications économiques aux Etats-Unis le président de la Fed, Jerome Powell, pourrait laisser entendre que le resserrement monétaire pourrait s’accélérer. Pour l’heure nous attendons une nouvelle hausse de taux durant la réunion de décembre et probablement 2 ou 3 nouvelles hausses en 2019.

Graphique de l’once d’argent en données journalières

Cours de l’argent : le FOMC ce soir pourrait appuyer la tendance baissière sur l’once

Analyse graphique du cours de l’argent

Le cours de l’argent poursuit sa tendance baissière suite à un nouvel échec à franchir la résistance à 14,78$, également rejointe par la moyenne mobile 100 périodes située actuellement à 14,74$.

Vous souhaitez poursuivre votre analyse, téléchargez notre guide de prévisions matières premières

Ainsi en cas d’accélération haussière sur le dollar Américain, le cours de l’argent pourrait rejoindre le support à 14,37$. Par ailleurs nous n’anticipons pas de retour de la tendance haussière tant que l’once ne parvient pas à valider le franchissement des 15 dollars, soit le plus haut niveau observé sur l’argent depuis le 15 août dernier.

En revanche une clôture hebdomadaire sous le support situé à 14,41 $ pourrait conduire à une accélération baissière en direction du plus bas annuel situé à 13,94 voire au contact du plus bas observé sur le cours de l’argent depuis août 2009 et situé à 13,65 dollars.

FTSE stabilizing, but can it continue?

The bounce off the lows hasn’t been as fierce as in other global markets, namely the U.S. But that isn’t all that surprising given the relative strength difference that has been going on for most the year. The FTSE and other European indices have been broadly weak, and while this is expected to continue in the intermediate-term, the near-term outlook could brighten up a little.

In yesterday’s indices/commodities webinar, we looked at the inverse head-and-shoulders pattern forming on the hourly time-frame for not only the FTSE, but also the DAX and CAC. The latter two indices have better defined patterns but the FTSE could still lift from the formation all the same.

The caveat is a) There is resistance right in the vicinity of the neckline and b.) Bigger resistance lies just beyond a break of the neckline. So while the FTSE could continue to recovery it isn’t without its obstacles to overcome, and it may end up a better set-up for shorts once a corrective bounce finishes than it is for would-be longs to try and take advantage of a rising market.

The alternate bearish route, which is often times seen with these types of patterns (H&S) when the neckline is tilted as it is, is for a wedge to form. While this could resolve itself upward just as the inverse H&S implies, it is more generally regarded as corrective in nature. With the trend pretty clearly down for some time now, a breakdown out of a well-developed wedge could have us looking at recent lows again, or worse, pretty quickly.

FTSE Chart Analysis – Watching Short-term Price Action for Next Move
US Dollar Trend-Line Bounce Vulnerable Ahead of FOMC

US Dollar Talking Points:

Today at 2PM ET brings the Federal Reserve’s November rate decision, and expectations for any moves at this meeting are incredibly low. As has become usual around such meetings, the focus will be on the details of the statement, parsing the verbiage to look for clues of the bank’s tolerance to forward-looking policy. With expectations for a December hike currently hovering at over 80%, the focus will likely shift towards 2019 as there’s considerable variance in expectations there.

– Yesterday’s trend-line test in the Dollar held support, and prices soon moved back above the 96.00 level; but bulls appear to be losing some motivation and given the change in behavior in USD price action around mid-term elections, a very valid questions exists around whether the Dollar will continue selling-off as one major risk has left the horizon.

US Dollar Bounce From Trend-Line Support, FOMC Ahead

Later today brings the November rate decision out of the Federal Reserve, and this is the final meeting on the calendar that isn’t considered a ‘live’ meeting. December is a quarterly meeting bringing new projections along with a press conference, and once we turn the page into 2019, any meeting can be a live meeting with a potential rate move and accompanying press conference.

The expectations for changes at today’s meeting are very low. The big question is how clearly the bank lays the groundwork for future hikes, starting with a move in December, which is currently showing expectations at over 80%. Next year brings far more questions, as there’s a 9% probability of getting four additional hikes next year, 31% chance of at least three more moves, and 64% chance of at least two hikes for a total of 50 basis points added next year.

The labor market has remained strong and inflation is still brisk in the US, which keeps the door wide open for more hikes next year. A related question which will unfortunately not be answered today is how the Fed might consider the rise in global risks and whether the US economy is vulnerable. October brought a noticeable change-of-pace in the risk trade, and November has so far seen a return of buyers. But issues remain around tariffs, Italy and the UK with Brexit. Given the sensitivity shown to these themes just a few weeks ago, it seems as though this would be a risk that the Fed would not want to discount. But, for more clarity around that, we’ll likely have to wait until December when Fed Chair Jerome Powell fields questions from the media around that expected rate hike.

US Dollar Holds Trend-Line Support After Mid-Terms

Yesterday saw sharp rallies develop across equities after Mid-Term elections in the US, and this went along with a quick move of Dollar weakness in the wake of those election results. Yesterday, I looked at the Dollar trying to find support on a bullish trend-line that connects September and October swing-lows. That support held, and the corresponding move higher produced a rather noticeable bearish response in EUR/USD as the currency folded after a failed test at the 1.1500-handle.

US Dollar Four-Hour Price Chart

Chart prepared by James Stanley

As we move towards today’s FOMC rate decision, the US Dollar remains above the 96.00 level following yesterday’s support bounce. Just ahead on the chart is a key area of resistance at 96.47, as this is the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the 2011-2016 major move in the pair. This has been a tricky area for bulls as this is the same level helped to stall the Q3 up-trend in the currency.

On the support side of the Dollar, the 96.04 level gave multiple instances of resistance in October and, as of yet, hasn’t been able to show much for lasting support. The 95.00 psychological level lurks below that, and was in play as recently as a month ago. And on a longer-term basis, the area around 94.20, which is the 38.2% retracement of the 2017-2018 major move has shown a tendency to hold support in the currency over the second-half of this year.

EUR/USD Resistance Reaction at 1.1500 – But Buyers Not Done Yet

Yesterday’s quick incursion of USD-weakness helped EUR/USD to firm up to a key area of resistance at the 1.1500 handle. This was the top-end of the zone that I was looking for in the pair to keep short-side strategies alive, and since coming into play yesterday morning, prices have continued to soften from that level.

But, it does appear as though there is some support showing from a trend-line projection around the 1.1400 area, and this may be bulls taking a stand to try to continue the pattern of higher-highs and higher-lows that have continued thus far in November.

EUR/USD remains an attractive option for USD-strength strategies, as next week will bring back into the fold the ongoing discussions between Brussels and Rome regarding the Italian budget. But traders looking to establish short positions would likely want to wait for this pattern of higher-highs and higher-lows to break before re-opening the door to bearish setups.

NZD/USD: Kiwi Tags Fibonacci Resistance Around RBNZ

Yesterday brought a rate decision out of New Zealand, and there was little by way of new information there. The RBNZ was incredibly dovish coming into the announcement, and in response NZD continued its recent rally to craft fresh three-month highs.

This has been one my preferred areas to look for US Dollar weakness over the past few weeks, and with a bullish response showing around yesterday’s rate decision, that door can remain open.

The quandary around the pair at the moment is the fact that a range is building near those highs, and prices may need a greater pullback before the bullish trend is ready to continue. There’s an area of potential higher-low support in the .6725 area, taken from the August swing-high which comes in around a key Fibonacci level.

AUD/USD for USD-Weakness Strategies

Given the short-term overbought nature of the NZD/USD move above, traders may want to look for other options around strategies of US Dollar weakness. AUD/USD is another area of interest as prices have responded favorably to the recent gust of USD-weakness, helping to produce monthly highs in the pair. There appear to be two zones of interest for higher-low support; nearby is the .7250 psychological level and a bit deeper, around long-term Fibonacci levels at .7185-.7205, which had helped to set a swing-low after last week’s topside breakout.

Курс гривны на межбанковском валютном рынке, выросший в среду относительно доллара на 5,88 коп., на торгах четверга понизился на 2,97 коп., оказавшись на уровне 27,92 UAH/USD.

Напомним, что упомянутая цифра достаточно приблизительна и основана на сведениях, что системные игроки межбанка завершили свои операции до 15.00 Киева, дав информацию НБУ для расчета официального курса доллара. На последний станем ориентироваться и мы, указав, что пополудни 08-го справочный промежуточный курс доллара, прибавив 3,29 коп., составил 27,93 UAH/USD.

Сессия в долларовом сегменте валютного межбанка началась 08 ноября с уровней предыдущего закрытия 27,90/27,91 UAH/USD виртуально, без сделок.

Около 10.05 ситуативная нехватка покупателей на межбанке понизила очень ненадолго курс СКВ до 27,86/27,88, а спустя 30 минут «американец», инициировав рост, уже находился на цифре 27,93/27,95 UAH/USD.

Этот рост был обеспечен покупками доллара нерезидентами, получившими «на руки» гривну после погашения ОВГЗ Минфином. Доллар приобретали «варяги», которые предпочитали репатриировать СКВ, выходя из украинских госбумаг в рамках глобального тренда ухода западных инвесторов с рынков стран emerging markets.

Погашение гривневых ОВГЗ состоялось накануне, «выбросив» на рынок до 5,0 млрд грн ликвидности. Это подтверждается ростом остатков в нацвалюте на транзитных и коррсчетах НБУ с уровня 45 254,3 млн грн к отметке 49 443,0 млн грн.

Часть этой гривны попала к украинскому экспортеру, «освободив» его от продаж СКВ ради гривны на текущие расходы.

Между тем, около 11.15 цена доллара на межбанке достигла отметки 27,93/27,95 UAH/USD. Росту СКВ также способствовали «придержки» валюты потенциальными ее продавцами.

Спустя полчаса, около полудня, покупатели-нерезиденты дружно покинули межбанк, оставив там продавцов СКВ, которые своими «придержками» начали «терять на курсе». Доллар, сменив тренд, инициировал коррекцию, оказавшись около 12.02 на отметке 27,91/27,93 UAH/USD. Спустя 38 минут «американец» в сопровождении активных продаж упустивших свою выгоду держателей СКВ уже пребывал на цифре 27,90/27,92, а на обеденный перерыв рынок ушел на фоне 27,90/27,91 UAH/USD около 13.50.

Собственно, основная игра межбанка была сделана до 14.00, когда на пустеющем рынке единичные покупки СКВ приподняли цену доллара к 27,91/27,93 UAH/USD.

Очередная волна продаж на межбанке уронила курс доллара по состоянию на 15.25 к 27,89/27,92 UAH/USD.

Эти уровни цен «американца» на межбанке оставались действующими до самого завершения торгов 08 ноября.

Большинство сделок на межбанке в четверг, по оценкам участников рынка, было осуществлено по курсу 27,92 UAH/USD.

Курс доллара на Межбанке – график:

Средние курсы валют на Межбанке после закрытия рынка:
доллар США – 27,920 / 27,950
евро – 31,862 / 31,884
российский рубль – 0,4202 / 0,4208

На международном валютном рынке forex валютная пара евро/доллар к этому времени имела следующие значения котировок 1,1422 / 1,1423

Trump calls mass shooting at club terrible, says hes been briefed

President Donald Trump responded to a mass shooting at a Southern California music club, calling it “terrible” and saying he has been “fully briefed” on the incident.

At least 12 people were killed and 10 others injured when a gunman burst into the packed club in Thousand Oaks, California, a suburb of Los Angeles, tossing smoke grenades and firing dozens of rounds, witnesses and authorities said. The lone suspect was also found dead inside the Borderline Bar and Grill that was hosting a college night on Wednesday night, police said. Authorities are working to determine his identity and motive.

People comfort each other as they sit near the scene, Nov. 8, 2018, in Thousand Oaks, Calif. where a gunman opened fire Wednesday inside a country dance bar crowded with hundreds of people on “college night.”

The president added to his first tweet with a second one minutes later. He commended “great bravery shown by police” and said the first officer to enter was “shot numerous times.” The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department named Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran who was about to retire, among the dozen killed. Helus, survived by his wife and son, was looking to retire next year, the sheriff’s office said.

1. Trump asks Sessions to resign

Hours after the results of the midterm elections began rolling in, Jeff Sessions resigned as attorney general at President Donald Trump’s request.

“This was a firing,” ABC News’ Mike Levine tells us. “This was not Sessions’ choice. As one DOJ person told me, ‘He had no choice.'”

The president and the attorney general have had a rocky relationship ever since Sessions’ recusal from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. With Sessions out of the way, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker will oversee the probe.

2. The future of Mueller’s investigation

Trump’s selection of Whitaker, who has previously spoken about reining in Mueller’s investigation, as acting attorney general sparked concern about the future of the Russia probe. The overarching sentiment on Capitol Hill is to let the special counsel finish, according to ABC News Congressional Correspondent Mary Bruce.

White House aides also want the president to leave Mueller alone, ABC News’ John Santucci tells us: “They do not want the president to do anything that could cause any type of crisis that could result in some form of investigation, potentially impeachment.”

3. Pelosi and Democrats plan for oversight

In 55 days, Democrats will control the House as new members of Congress take over, but will Nancy Pelosi be their leader?

ABC News’ John Parkinson, who covers Congress, tells us she’s likely to keep her job as the party plans for major oversight of the White House.

“They want to put every single major Trump administration policy along with the president and his business empire under the microscope here, and really examine him through the committee process,” he tells us.
