ยท *** FIXED INCOME/FX/COMMODITIES/ERRATUM ***
ยท Fixed income futures are mixed in Europe, but are currently outperforming the equity markets, which are sharply lower on US recession fears. This has sparked a general flight to safety. There has been a steepening in the German yield curve overnight as the long end outperformed.
ยท On the commodity front crude oil is trading higher lower in the session but remains above the $101-handle. The Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi said overnight that crude prices are not likely to fall below $60/barrel due to rising costs to develop tar sands and alternative fuels. He added that Saudi Arabia would never change its domestic or foreign policies under pressure from the US. Elsewhere spot gold is trading higher in the session and is moving in on the $1000/oz level.
ยท Risk aversion remained the predominant theme in pre European trading as JPY and CHF firmed via crosses. Firmer commodity prices also remain a dominate theme as spot Gold probed close to the 1,000-level for fresh all-time high, while spot Silver tested above $20 per oz for new 27 year high. The USD/JPY tested below the 103-handle to hit 3-year lows, while USD/CHF tested 1.0405 for fresh all-time lows in this pair. Option related-barriers holding EUR/USD below the 1.5250 area. Currencies drifted into a consolidation phase aided by the earnings results of HSBC.
