  • Markets and economists less hawkish than Fed on rate hikes

    January 18, 2017, 03:20

    Investing.com – Markets continued to price in only two rate hikes by the Federal Reserve (Fed) in 2017, in line with a poll of 100 economists released on Wednesday and less aggressive than the central bank’s own call for three increases this year.

    Fed fund futures currently price in a first hike in June with the second not occurring until December, according to Investing.com's Fed Rate Monitor Tool.

    That coincided with a Reuters’ poll of 100 economists that showed interest rates remaining at the current level of 0.50%-0.75% until the second quarter when a 25 basis point hike is likely.

    The survey further showed that consensus put the next tightening to 1.00%-1.25% to occur in the fourth quarter.

    Of note, the news agency highlighted that 14 of the economists surveyed were more hawkish, putting their bets on the first hike to take place in March.

    Inflation data released on Wednesday also convinced ING senior economist James Knightly that the first move would come by the end of the first quarter.

    Knightly noted that it was the first time that both headline and core U.S. inflation had breached 2% since the second quarter of 2014.

    “With headline inflation likely to move up towards 2.5% in the second half of the year and President Trump promising pro-growth and pro-job policies in what already is a fairly strong story, it means further Federal Reserve rate hikes are not far away,” he insisted, specifying that he forecast the first hike to be in March with another move higher in the third quarter.

    Market participants may have a chance to hear Fed chair Janet Yellen’s comments on the inflation data when she responds to questions after giving a speech on monetary policy to the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco later on Wednesday at 3:00PM ET (20:00GMT).

  • USD/CAD trims gains after BoC holds

    January 18, 2017, 03:14

    Investing.com - The U.S. dollar trimmed gains against its Canadian counterpart on Wednesday, after the Bank of Canada left interest rates unchanged, although positive U.S. economic reports still lent support to the greenback.

    USD/CAD pulled away from 1.3132, the session high, to hit 1.3064 during U.S. morning trade, still up 0.19%.

    The pair was likely to find support at 1.3016, Tuesday’s three-month low and resistance at 1.3191, Tuesday’s high.

    In a widely expected move, the BoC said it was leaving its overnight cash rate unchanged at 0.50%, a record low where it has been since July 2015.

    The central bank also held the bank rate steady at 0.75% and left the deposit rate at 0.25%.

    In the U.S., official data earlier showed that industrial production rose 0.8% in December, better than expectations for a 0.6% advance.

    However, manufacturing production increased by 0.2% last month, disappointing forecasts for a 0.4% rise.

    The report came after the U.S. Commerce Department said consumer prices gained 0.3% in December, in line with expectations and after a 0.2% advance the previous month.

    Year-over-year, consumer prices increased 2.1% last month, in line with forecasts and after a 1.7% rise in November.

    The greenback had weakened broadly after Donald Trump said to the Wall Street Journal on Monday that U.S. companies could not compete with China "because our currency is too strong. And it's killing us".

    In separate remarks, a senior adviser to the U.S. President-elect warned about the risk from a stronger dollar.

    The loonie was higher against the euro, with EUR/CAD slipping 0.10% to 1.3958.

  • U.S. inflation increases in December, matching consensus

    January 18, 2017, 01:31

    Investing.com – Annualized consumer price inflation (CPI) continued to push higher in December as expected, official data showed on Wednesday.

    In a report, the U.S. Commerce Department said that consumer prices gained 0.3% in December from a month earlier, in line with expectations and compared to a 0.2% advance in the prior month.

    Year-over-year, consumer prices increased 2.1% last month, in line with forecasts and after having risen 1.7% in November.

    Consumer prices, excluding food and energy costs, increased by a seasonally adjusted 0.2% last month, in line with estimates and November’s increase.

    Core CPI increased at an annualized rate of 2.2% in December, in line with the consensus forecast. Annual core inflation rose 2.1% in November.

    Core prices are viewed by the Federal Reserve (Fed) as a better gauge of longer-term inflationary pressure because they exclude the volatile food and energy categories. The central bank usually tries to aim for 2% core inflation or less.

    Market participants may have a chance to hear Fed chair Janet Yellen’s comments on the inflation data when she responds to questions after giving a speech on monetary policy to the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco at 3:00PM ET (20:00GMT).

    After the report, the dollar pushed higher. EUR/USD was trading at 1.0664 from around 1.0666 ahead of the release of the data, GBP/USD was at 1.2280 from 1.2288 earlier, while USD/JPY was at 113.50 from 113.45 earlier.

    The US dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of six major rivals, was at 100.82, compared to 100.81 ahead of the report.

    Meanwhile, U.S. stock futures pointed to a slightly higher open. The Dow futures gained 33 points or 0.16%, the S&P 500 futures advanced 4 points, or 0.17%, while the Nasdaq 100 futures rose 9 points, or 0.19%.

    Elsewhere, in the commodities market, gold futures traded at $1,212.50 a troy ounce, compared to $1,212.65 ahead of the data, while crude oil was at $51.71 compared to $51.68 earlier.

  • Top 5 Things to Know In the Market on Wednesday

    January 18, 2017, 10:58

    Investing.com - Here are the top five things you need to know in financial markets on Wednesday, January 18:

    1. Earnings in focus with Goldman and Citi on deck

    Market participants continue to keep an eye on the quarterly reporting season with the focus Wednesday on earnings from Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) and Citigroup (NYSE:C) out before the market open.

    As of the prior session, 35 S&P firms had reported with 72% beating earnings-per-share on growth of 12.1% and 51% topping sales forecast with growth of 4.7%, according to earnings trend analysis firm The Earnings Scout.

    These analysts have warned that while earnings growth is accelerating, the beat rate has gone down and estimates are going lower.

    They noted that stocks have risen in the post-Trump trade without a commensurate increase in earnings estimates and recommended, “Be cautious, not greedy.”

    2. Yellen and inflation on tap

    Among a slew of appearances from Federal Reserve (Fed) officials on Wednesday including Dallas Fed president Robert Kaplan and Minneapolis Fed chief Neel Kashkari, investors will focus on remarks from Fed chair Janet Yellen who is due to speak on the economy to the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco at 3:00PM ET (20:00GMT).

    Also on the day’s agenda, investors will digest consumer price index (CPI) data for December out at 8:30AM ET (13:30GMT) with headline annual inflation expected to increase to 2.1% and core CPI forecast to move up to 2.2%.

    In other reports of interest, markets will receive readings on December industrial production or the latest Beige Book that offers readings on the state of the economy in the 12 Federal Reserve districts.

    3. Dollar breaks 5-day losing streak

    The dollar recovered positions against major rivals on Wednesday, easing off a one-month low hit after U.S. President-elect Donald Trump said earlier this week that the greenback was “too strong”.

    While waiting on data and Fed appearances later in the session, the U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, was last up 0.42% at 100.68, off Tuesday’s five-week trough of 100.23.

    USD/JPY moved higher for the first time in eight days, bouncing off Tuesday’s one-and-a-half month low of 112.58.

    4. Oil slumps on expectations for ramped up U.S. production

    Oil prices fell more than 1% on Wednesday as the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said on Tuesday that U.S. shale production is set to snap a three-month decline in February.

    Next month's production will edge up 40,750 barrels per day (bpd) to 4.748 million bpd, the EIA said, while it was expected to drop by 5,900 bp in January.

    Meanwhile, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) cut its forecast for oil supply growth form non-OPEC countries to 120,000 barrels-per-day (bpd), from its previous 300,000 bpd estimate due to several output cuts among its members.

    According to OPEC’s monthly report , the world oil supply fell by 0.30 million bpd in December from the prior month, though it rose by 0.71 million bpd year-on-year.

    Furthermore, eyes began to turn in U.S. stockpile levels as industry group the American Petroleum Institute was set due to release its weekly report at 4:30PM ET (21:30GMT) later on Wednesday.

    Official data from the Energy Information Administration will be released Thursday, amid forecasts for an oil-stock drop of 960,000 barrels.

    The reports come out one day later than usual due to Monday's Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

    U.S. crude oil futures fell 1.62% to $51.63 at 7:10AM ET (12:10GMT), while Brent oil traded down 1.44% to $54.67.

    5. Global stocks mixed ahead of full agenda

    U.S. stock futures pointed to a small rebound at the open on Wednesday as investors await the deluge of earnings, data and Fed speakers. At 7:11AM ET (12:1GMT), the blue-chip Dow futures edged forward 0.01%, S&P 500 futures inched up 0.02% and the Nasdaq 100 futures advanced 0.10%.

    Elsewhere, European stocks were trading mixed as British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Tuesday speech on Brexit continued to weigh, while upbeat earnings reports lent support.

    Earlier, Asian stocks also closed mixed though Chinese stocks benefited from positive housing data and Japan’s Nikkei moved higher as the dollar recovered against the yen.
