Commentary

16th January 2019 Market Commentary

Equity markets continued to benefit renewed confidence, posting further gains in the 2019 year. Favoured tech stocks posted strong gains as the Banks commence reporting earnings. Early in US market trade there was a hiccup, when US Senator Grassley commented that US Trade Representative Lighthizer, had said little progress was made in last weeks China/US trade negotiations. Markets quickly regained confidence and added to previous gains.

German GDP was in line with expectations, 1.5%, but well below the previous 2.2%. Despite the weak growth data, strong EU trade numbers mitigated any weakness. European markets have been high-jacked by the Brexit chaos. The UK Parliament takes a key vote on PM May’s proposed trade agreement, which is widely expected to fail and miserably. This defeat is going to add to pressure and brinksmanship between the UK and the EU. Failure to reach an agreement will mean a ‘No Deal Brexit’ at the end of March. The Europeans will buckle, as they have too much to lose, with massive trade exposure and financial reparations to lose. If not, Brexit will be sudden and will work out through necessity. The GBP retreated to 1.2740, ahead of the key vote, but only returns some of the recent gains. The EUR also fell lower, drifting below 1.1400, as the reserve rallied.

Commodity currencies are extremely exposed to US/China trade talks and the revelations surrounding Lighthizer’s comments, turned the associated currencies south. The AUD slipped back below 0.7200, while the NZD tests 0.6800, on the downside. Economic data is having a minimal impact on markets, driven by macro-events, trade and Brexit. A look at Australian Consumer Confidence and NZ Credit Card spending may enlighten a few to consumer sentiment, locally?
