Commentary

18th October 2018 Market Commentary

The Fed Minutes were released overnight and they pointed to a confirmation of their current tightening monetary policy. The spike in the 10 year Bond rates, that contributed to the crash in equities last week, combined with political pressures from the Trump administration has been piling on the pressure. It is unlikely the Fed will blink although it would be hard to completely ignore the ‘political noise’. US Bond yields were firm and equities were soft after the release, while the Dollar received some impetus, with the EUR slipping to 1.1500. The GBP drifted to 1.3120, after softer CPI data and destabilising Brexit comments from Bank of England Deputy Governor Cunliffe.

 

The Sino/US Trade negotiations are experiencing a ‘hiatus’ according to US Commerce secretary Wilbur Ross. Trump confirmed the Chinese were not ready for a deal and key economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, negative sentiment. The rising reserve and negative trade prospects interrupted the strong NZD rally triggered by the blowout NZ CPI data. The NZD retreated from 0.6600, falling back to 0.6550, while the AUD drifted back to 0.7100. These trade exposed currencies remain extremely vulnerable to the ongoing trade war. RBA Minutes confirmed strong business conditions and a healthy labour market, but confirmed significant trade risks.
