While anything can happen, at present there is no fundamental impetus for dramatic selling in Euro entering the US session. S/P 500 futures are quietly holding onto the bid with 4520 being a possible intra-day tipping point if that changes. Euro is moving with stocks, especially Eur/Jpy.

Japan wages are increasing significantly for the first time in 30 years now. That should impact Yen appreciation some over time if rates and yields remain calmer in the US.

See probability of Eur/Usd 1.0950 in time regardless of the softness which has crept in overnight.

Preference is to go with the flow with weight on the buy side. No reason to be a superstar calling tops and bottoms.

Mtl JP 23:24 GMT 11/16/2023 - Agree on all accounts JP. I felt the market is just rebalancing today from the strong purchasing in Euro. Our associates still prefer the short side in nearby futures I noted the other day from 10892ish but spot is settling right on decline levels in a fairly structured manner. I tested the water very lightly earlier on the long side near lows just to position for any sudden and not expecting much (news) and so took little gains and stayed short Sterling.

Monedge 16:21 - euro feels wishi-washi as if waiting for some kind of energy kick - which , ceteris paribus, might come in the form next weeks PMI. As I keep repeating trading FX is betting on the "relative" component of the equation. So agree or not, I think that in aggregate, players are looking at data streams from US and from the EU and the relative "slopes": data streams from the EU appear - relatively - euro supportive and mildly clubbing the dollar. If the data trends continue on their relative paths, dlr should see some more down and euro a bit more up oomph. See chart abouve for (sofar) "good news data stream" for the euro by way of one example.

Montreal JP - Concur

Very near term we see the market perhaps trying to find a balance around 1.0850 and if that is not fair value the next area would be the 1.0820 area in our view. If that does not meet the needs of the market then probabilities build for those lower areas to validate the long side going forward should they hold.

In plain English there is some weakness at present with lower values areas holding weight to sustain the long side.

* The most recent indications on the CME Group’s FedWatch gauge point to a full percentage point of interest rate cuts by the end of 2024.

* This week has featured two important reports, one showing that consumer prices were unchanged and wholesale prices actually declined half a percent in October.

* “They’re not going to want to signal that now is the time to start talking about decreases in interest rates, even if fed funds futures already has that incorporated,” former Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren told CNBC.

Benjamin Picton, senior markets strategist at Rabobank

Stubborn inflation pressures, and the risk of ‘un-anchored’ expectations may have been on Fed Chair Powell’s mind last week when he told an IMF conference in Washington that “we’re trying to make a judgement at this point about whether we need to do more.”

This recalls Powell’s words from August, where he said that: “we are navigating by the stars under cloudy skies”.
In short, the Fed doesn’t know whether it has done enough or not, and if the world’s most powerful central banker is uncertain on the outlook for rates and inflation, perhaps it comes as no surprise that compensation for uncertainty (the term premium) has been rising since July.

Not So Great Expectations

Market implied Fed Funds rate discount a string of cuts starting in January 2024 and culminating in a 4.492 percent in January 2025. These expectations are based on the perception that the Federal Reserve will achieve a soft landing and that inflation will drop rapidly. However, market participants who assume rate cuts will be bullish may be taking too much risk for the wrong reasons.

“2024 literally is going to be a year of institutional adoption, primarily first through the Bitcoin ETF, which will be followed by an Ethereum ETF,” Galaxy Digital founder Mike Novogratz said during the Q3 earnings call.

“As institutions get more comfortable, if the government gives its seal of approval that Bitcoin is a thing, you are going to see the rest of allocators starting to look at things outside of that. And so, money will flow into the space.”

Nov 10 (Reuters) - A look at the day ahead in Asian markets from Jamie McGeever, financial markets columnist.

Asian markets are set to end the week with a bump on Friday, after Fed chief Jerome Powell the day before warned that U.S. interest rates may need to rise further to win the war on inflation.

Powell’s remarks were a swift reality check…

Higher yields are good... CB Lemme ask you a Q...

Question: Who buys 30Y & 50Y Bonds and why.

Answer: People who spend money on themselves, and companies mitigating their risks. All of their money is used to buy long duration bonds, so when they make a claim it is honored by the insurance companies... The second reason is pension funds need to invest deductions on a long term basis. The third reason is the new class of investors who were being misled by the media and needed guidance on what to do with their savings, since their confidence in the banks had started to wane due to poor service levels being given to them as clients. There are other reasons too such as funds not wanting to bank on cash because of inflationary pressures along with the fear of banking instability and collapses which came about as a result of the pandemic. These are few of the reasons for yield spikes. The central banks also did not allocate as many bills and bonds as they should have which caused what I call a "yield run". eg. The demand was for $40B but they only issued for $15B maybe because of "certain requirements".

Anyhows I anticipate yields will continue to the Skyline...

* Global markets see average policy rate falling within a year
* Such bets backfired before on resilient inflation, growth

(Bloomberg) -- Rates traders are betting that the steepest global tightening cycle in a generation is over and that monetary easing will begin from mid-2024.

Swaps signal the average cash rate for developed economies will be steady over the coming six months, the first time in two years that they’re not pricing in a hike over that time frame, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. They also show a 50-basis point reduction in the aggregated rate within a year, the biggest bet on easing since the pandemic. ..

To be sure, it’s a risky bet as previous wagers to that effect backfired after inflation proved to be stickier than anticipated and expectations of a recession failed to materialize.

Bankrupt WeWork Could Accelerate CRE Crisis As It Prepares To Dump 40 NYC Office Tower Leases

Update (1110ET):

Manhattan's largest private office lessee, WeWork, has collapsed into bankruptcy. Court papers indicate plans to abandon dozens of office lease agreements across the metropolitan area, which might worsen the commercial real estate crisis.

According to Bloomberg, "Dormant locations in New York dominate a list of nearly 70 leases the coworking giant intends to terminate, court papers show. The roughly 40 contracts at issue include space near Union Square and in Fulton Center, a retail and transit facility in downtown Manhattan."

Buildings vacated by WeWork might ripple through an already weakened CRE market because the coworking startup is an anchor tenant for numerous buildings that account for "about $2.6 billion in CMBS debt, with about half of those loans reaching maturity within the next 12 months," according to real estate news website Commercial Observer. Already, 80% of those landlords are on a special servicing watchlist, delinquent on their loans, and or in default, according to CMBS data firm Trepp.

Market timers are eagerly riding this latest rally
The U.S. stock market’s late-October low is unlikely to be the final low of the correction that began this summer.

That’s the conclusion reached by a contrarian analysis of market timer sentiment. At no point during the July-through-October decline did the market timing community exhibit the despair and pessimism that typically accompanies a significant bottom.

Nov 6, 2023 (Bloomberg) — Any year-end rally in stocks could prove short-lived because equities don’t fully reflect the outlook for rates remaining higher for longer, according to Jean Boivin, who heads the research arm at BlackRock Inc.

Nov 6 (Reuters) - A look at the day ahead in Asian markets from Jamie McGeever, financial markets columnist.

Asia is poised to start this week as it finished last week, with risk assets and investor sentiment buoyed by growing confidence in the U.S. economic 'soft landing', and easing financial conditions from the slide in the dollar and U.S. bond yields.

I think caroline , formely a mandarin as Assistant Superintendent, Regulation Sector at the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI), where she was responsible for policy-related functions, including capital, accounting and legislation, had a chance THEN to actually shape policy and regs. So why is she piping about it NOW, sitting at an outfit (for a north of $400K?) that is dispensing harsh medicine on the economy ? I spare you my view as it would likely contain unkind and harsh words.

I hope they buy 99.9999 yards worth of treasuries per week on a per week cycle throughout the year for the next 10-15 years, there is no harm with that way I have suggested... Treasuries are like wishes coming true!. They start making profits from the following business day and are paid at par automatically every week, it's the most profitable high turnover low margin business in the world.
