HIGH IMPACT ITEMS: JP- GDP
- February U.S. employment data and (revisions) on Friday were better tan expected in light of the bad weather this winter. Some are saying the data now have a decent base when there is a seasonal catch-up in March-April. On the other hand, the ECB is in no position to ease policy in the foreseeable future.
- As pointed out last week, flash February HICP had increased to 0.80% yr/yr from a final 0.70% reading in January plus core flash HICP was 1.00% yr/yr. Also, German data recently has been been mostly improving over the past month.
- ECB President Draghi has been very clear in his past several meetings: the ECB was not going to ease unless the Eurozone economy turned south sharply. Furthermore, Draghi has said repeatedly that the ECB has no fear of Eurozone deflation in the medium term, and thus the central bank can comfortably run a steady policy unless conditions decisively change. It seems on Thursday the market finally had gotten his message. As a result the tone of the EURUSD has improved, We will see how far it can go.
- Fed Chair Yellen in her most recent testimony tempered her outlook on the economy. On the other hand, February U.S. employment data were better than expected in light of the severe winter weather in that month. Based on the data, the yield on the 10-yr bond rose and equity prices have gained.
- Markets will be keeping a close watch on developments in Ukraine in the period ahead. For now the situation seems to be fading as a market factor.
- The data for the week ahead seems to be relatively quiet. It sees central bank decisions by the Bank of Japan and the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. Thursday sees key February employment data from Australia and and U.S. retail Sales data.
