Europe Trying a Short Squeeze
10:00 GMT- May 10 (global-view.com) Global financial markets are digesting the massive European stability pact announced over the weekend. A lot of details still need to be fleshed out, but in essence Europe has put together a massive fund (EUR 440 bln European Union, Eur 60bln European Commission and EUR 220 bln IMF) to back the debt of European sovereign states. European central banks have already been in buying sovereign in the markets as they try to put on a short-squeeze against short sellers. One risk is that those who were stuck as holders of the paper will use this buying simply as a second chance to get out of this paper (or at least reduce their exposure) once and for all. Confidence in this distressed debt will only be turned around when the markets believe the underlying paper has credibility. That will happen once the countries involved individually address their budget problems.
It is dangerous for traders who live in the short run to be cynical about a program like this whose intent is to generate a short-covering squeeze. One can have doubts about the viability of a program but go with the flow in the short term. It is also important to underscore that this is a European sovereign debt bailout program. It is not a Euro (currency) bailout plan. Most in the Eurozone see the need for a weaker EUR over time to promote exports. In short, forex dealers must be quick on their feet and take events as they come, one at a time.
Political events over the weekend have not been positive for those looking for stability. The CDU/CSU coalition government of Angela Merkel suffered a significant loss in state elections in North Rhineland Westphalia and lost control of the Upper House of the German Parliament. This has weakened the German government. In the U.K., the process of forming a new government continues, The U.K. will wind up with a weak government as well. There is already talk of a new election before the year is out.
The EURUSD is higher on a short squeeze. The GBPUSD is up, while the EURGBP is higher. All markets are keeping a sharp eye on the short squeeze in European sovereign debt.
In the GBP, post-election uncertainty has the GBP in play.
Our bias for the EURUSD and GBPUSD is mixed
The EURCHF has bounced higher. SNB intervention tactics have changed. We will have to see what happens next.
The USDJPY pair is higher and the EURJPY cross is up sharplt. Rating agencies warn that Japan's public finances are a worry. Some note that virtually all JGB bonds are owned by the citizens of Japan. The Hatoyama government wants a lower exchange rate and is pressuring the BOJ to promote growth. Some traders focus intently on the Japan vs. U.S. 2-yr note spread (only the U.S. 2-yr moves much).
The risk trade has been on and off in commodities and the commodity currencies (CAD, AUD and NZD). Today the commodity currencies are higher. After the RBA raised its cash rate target to 4.50% (+25bp) on Tuesday, it also signaled a policy pause. An onerous mining tax proposed by the government has undermined confidence in the unit. Bank of Canada interest rates are seen being hiked June 1. Monetary officials have little concern about CAD strength. A strong currency eases the pressure on the central bank to tighten policy aggressively. Oil and gold are mixed. We favor the AUD, CAD, gold and oil fundamentally.
Far East equities closed higher. European bourses are up. U.S. equities are up. The U.S. 10-yr last 3.59%, +11 bps. Bonds are a counter to risk trades because risk investments must be financed. When the cost of money moves up (higher interest rates), the return and allure of risk trades such as equities falls.
UPCOMING DATA HIGHLIGHTS: In Europe, the Bank of England policy meeting (delayed due to election) is awaited. No rate changes are expected. In North America, the U.S. and Canadarelease no major data.
