The decrease in USD rates is decided, but what do they think on Wall Street



The response of the market to the strong US retail sales was negligible; traders preferred to focus on the next comments of the Fed. Therefore, on Wednesday, the dollar was only able to fix the growth of the previous session just above the level of 97.



Speaking in Paris, Jerome Powell intervened in market expectations again, hinting at the risks of lowering inflation expectations, which requires a more flexible policy adjustment from officials. At the same time, the Federal Reserve persists in ignoring traditional fundamental data, showing its concern with leading indicators. After Powell's speech on Tuesday, the odds of a 50 bps rate cut increased to 31%. At the same time, the head of the Central Bank was able to convince the market that the Central Bank would be able to stimulate inflation, since the market metrics of inflationary expectations turned into growth from the end of June.

Thus, pressure on the American economy comes from trade relations with partners. Inflation expectations declined after the announcement of an increase in tariffs for Chinese goods. Powell has pointed out on this for more than once. It cannot be ruled out that the reaction of inflation expectations to the bottom was a "foresight" of the new cycle of mitigation of policy in response to the escalation of tariff tension. In this case, the Central Bank is led, as it responds to a false signal and ignores strong economic reports.

Be that as it may, it is difficult to consider a reduction in the rate of half a percent at once as a reasonable precautionary measure. The labor market and retail volume are growing quite confidently.

Next week, the ECB is expected to give a strong stimulus signal, which will reduce the risks of a further slowdown in growth abroad. This is one of the reasons for the Fed's concerns, along with the trade war. Friday's report on US GDP may contain a positive surprise, at least there are prerequisites for this. In this scenario, traders are unlikely to sell dollars.

Estimates and expectations of the world's largest banks about the Fed rate cut

The Goldman Sachs are waiting for the reduction of 25 basis points in July and another by the same amount until the end of this year. A similar opinion is shared by experts JPMorgan.

Everyone understands that the Fed is set to soften the policy in July, they write. The situation in the world remains alarming, business sentiment continues to deteriorate, and deflation signals from a slowdown in producer price pressure put pressure on corporate profits. The combination of these factors has a negative effect on the increase in capital expenditures in the world.

Representatives of Morgan Stanley and UBS predict an aggressive policy easing - immediately by 50 basis points without an additional reduction before the end of the year. In their opinion, the current situation requires decisive action. Over the past 12 months, the global economy has noticeably slowed down, aided by trade conflicts. US GDP also risks slowing growth.

Citigroup, on the other hand, forecasts a quarter percent decline in July and the same in September. According to them, a decrease of 25 basis points is a kind of compromise on the committee. Although, it is possible that some officials will vote to reduce by 50 basis points.

There is a consensus in Bank of America and Barclays. Jerome Powell made it clear that at the next meeting, the rate will be reduced regardless of statistics, they comment. The cost of lending will decline by at least 0.25% in July and another 0.5% by the end of the year.

CBI Urges Next UK PM To Act Fast To Get Economy Back On Track



The next UK Prime Minister should restore confidence and take action to bring the economy back on track, the Confederation of British Industry said in its Business Manifesto published Monday. Carolyn Fairbairn, the CBI's Director General called for a clear direction for the UK and to build a long-term vision that drives in investment and back business as a foundation of a growing, inclusive economy.

Brexit has stalled progress on the UK economy for three years. A Brexit deal remains a top priority for business, but a broader vision is needed, the lobby noted.

"Early signals matter. The UK is a fantastic place to do business but we must be honest - the reputation of our country has taken a dent in recent times," Fairbairn said.

"Our new Prime Minister has a real chance to inject a new lease of life into the UK economy and show the world we are open for investment."

The manifesto also called for fast action to show world that the UK remains a trusted place to do business and to build a compelling economic vision for the UK of the future.

BoJ Closely Examining Heightened Global Uncertainties, Says Kuroda



The Bank of Japan is carefully monitoring heightened uncertainties regarding the global economy as some nervousness has been seen in global financial markets, Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said Tuesday.

"We will carefully examine various risk factors, in addition to developments in economic activity and prices as well as financial conditions, and weigh the benefits and costs of the policy effects," Kuroda said in a speech at the International Monetary Fund.

He said Japan's economy is no longer in deflation as the central bank continued its powerful monetary easing.

"The positive annual CPI inflation has taken hold, and the economy is no longer in deflation in the sense of a sustained decline in prices," Kuroda added.

Inflation is in the range of 0.5-1.0 percent. The banker reiterated that the BoJ will persistently continue with easing in order to maintain the momentum toward achieving 2 percent inflation target.

However, Kuroda said it is not easy to continue with such powerful quantitative and qualitative monetary easing for a long time.

Further, he said the bank adopted yield curve control in 2016, aiming to control both short-and long-term interest rates of bonds.

"In exerting monetary easing effects stably for a long time, the Bank judges that yield curve control is a better framework in terms of both controllability and sustainability," Kuroda added.

Gold in anticipation of the Fed rate cut



Surprisingly, but a fact: amid the strengthening greenback, gold renews its perennial highs.

Since 2013, the precious metal has been trading in the range of $1050-1385 per ounce, and only recently strengthened expectations regarding easing of monetary policy by the Federal Reserve System (FRS) of the United States allowed quotes to come out.

The main obstacle in the path of "bulls" on XAU/USD is traditionally considered to be a strong dollar, but even now its position does not seem to be hopeless. What then is the matter?

If in 2014-2018, the US currency showed growth due to the tightening of the monetary rate of the Fed, then at present it remains stable primarily due to the weakness of competitors.

The Fed is signaling its intention to carry out monetary expansion for preventive purposes. The Bank of England in front of the "hawk" turns into a "dove". The ECB is also ready to ease monetary policy.

In conditions when it is difficult to find a strong currency, investors switch to other assets.

Promotions?

The historical highs of the S&P 500 index are undoubtedly impressive, but the higher it grows, the stronger the impression that this is a "bubble". The only driver of the rally is investor confidence in aggressively lowering the Fed rate. If the US central bank does not go in the wake of the market, the fall of the S&P 500 will be guaranteed. Bonds?

Under normal conditions, bonds act as an alternative to gold and take advantage of it in the form of interest income. However, when the volume of negative-yield bonds traded on the global market increases by leaps and bounds, and currently exceeds $13 trillion, investors start looking at the yellow precious metal in a completely different way. Buying gold seems to be the best choice for them. In fact, which is preferable: not having interest income or paying extra for the fact that you own bonds?

Is it any wonder, then, that in the conditions of only a formally strong dollar, the increasing risks of lowering the S&P 500 and the growing number of traded bonds with negative yields, investors prefer gold? Gold ETF reserves have already exceeded 74 million ounces - less than 18 million below the record high of 92 million ounces recorded in 2011.

"The vector of the monetary policy of key central banks seems to have changed, so we are optimistic about the prospects for the yellow precious metal," said experts from Citigroup. "

We expect the Fed to cut its interest rate by 25 basis points at the July meeting. At the same time, we do not exclude that the regulator can reduce it immediately by 50 basis points. The beginning of the decline in interest rates in the United States will be a positive event for the bulls on gold," they added.

According to Citigroup's forecast, in the third quarter the price of gold will average $1,425 per ounce, and in the fourth quarter - $1,450.

JPMorgan predicts the decline of the dollar era



The position of the greenback in the foreseeable future may falter, and it even runs the risk of losing the status of the main global reserve currency, analysts at JPMorgan Chase warn.

"The dollar has been the main global reserve currency for almost 100 years. During this time, many investors, including those outside the United States, have become accustomed to the fact that dollar assets occupy a "higher than market" share in their portfolios. However, we believe that the US currency may lose its unique status due to structural and cyclical reasons, which will lead to a decline in its rate," representatives of the financial institute said.

"After the end of World War II, the United States became the largest global economy, accounting for a quarter of global GDP. If we add the countries of Western Europe, then this value will increase to 40%. Since then, fast-growing Asia, in the heart of which China is located, has consistently won back the share of the world market from the West, "they added.

According to experts, as the Asian region develops, the share of transactions in currencies other than the dollar will inevitably grow.

"In addition, the current US administration has questioned agreements with all major US trading partners - from Mexico and Canada to China and the EU, and also left the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Such unfriendly actions on the part of Washington can induce these states to reduce the share of the dollar in trade calculations," noted JPMorgan experts.

They believe that the permanent fiscal and trade deficits of the United States can trigger a decline in the dollar against a basket of currencies and gold, and advise investors to diversify their portfolios so that they prefer other currencies in developed markets and in Asia, as well as precious metals.

However, according to analysts, selling the dollar immediately is also not worth it, because shifts in preferences in financial markets take a very long time, so those who are counting on a quick weakening of the US currency should have extraordinary patience.

Australia's Service Sector Growth Moderates In July



Australia's service sector growth momentum slowed at the start of the third quarter driven by a weakening trend in new business inflows, data from IHS Markit showed Monday.

The Commonwealth Bank of services business activity index fell to 52.3 in July from 52.6 in June.

The overall sales growth moderated in July as domestic demand conditions softened despite a solid increase in new export business. Further, service related jobs fell at the steepest pace in the series history.

On the price front, data showed that input price inflation was the fastest for nine months driven by greater energy costs. Meanwhile, output price inflation remained moderate in July.

Service providers remained upbeat about longer-term prospects as sentiment towards the year-ahead outlook stayed in positive territory. Reflecting softer expansions in manufacturing and services, the composite output index declined to 52.1 in July from 52.5 in June.
