$USD #liquidity
1/ While the US Dollar has pulled back in January it was not unexpected looking at net issuance by the US Treasury and the rate of change in excess reserves. Using a 3 month adv. on net issuance and excess reserves their may be further upside to the US Dollar.

2/ There was a small uptick in global liquidity in December 2018 in rate of change terms. This has supported many markets that were oversold. However, there has been no sizeable change in trend. Will know more once January data is released.
#equities #liquidity
3/ If we have a closer look at the rate of change in the major central bank balance sheets we can see the contraction throughout 2018. The rate of change in the MSCI All World Index tracks it closely. Again notice the slight uptick in December 2018.

Updated chart looking at the $USD, net issuance by the US Treasury, US excess reserves YoY% (inverted) & USTs held in foreign official accounts YoY% (inverted).

“We going to be in a position...to stop runoff later this year,” he said, adding that doing so would leave the balance sheet at about 16 percent or 17 percent of GDP, up from about 6 percent before the financial crisis about a decade ago.
7/ #GrowthSlowing
Liquidity flow on effects.
Global manufacturing PMI slipped to a 32-month low in Feb (50.6 vs 50.8 - Jan). Output growth eased and new orders were near stagnation as global trade remained subdued.
8/ #GrowthSlowing #Liquidity $USD
Updated charts for the end of February. Global M1 YoY% declined in January 2019 after moving up in December 2018.
9/ #Liquidity $USD
Big drop of in net issuance due to the debt ceiling standoff. Rate of change in YoY for net issuance has dropped from over 100% to 40%. However, excess reserves continue to shrink., closing in on -30% YoY. Data as at 28/02/2019.
10/ #Liquidity $USD
The drop in net issuance has reduced pressure on the Ted Spread & LIBOR OIS.
11/ #Liquidity $USD
Cap on monthly redemptions in Fed balance sheet to be reduce to $15 billion from $30 billion per month starting in May. This likely to lead to a slowing in the YoY% change of excess reserves. Dollar down from here?
12/ #liquidity
Fed, ECB, PBOC, BOJ & SNB USD balance combined YoY% now negative and not showing signs of bottoming yet.
13/ $USD #liquidity
Global M1 USD YoY% proxy measurement now negative YoY%.
14/ $USD #liquidity
Still no help from central banks apart from dovish talk/forward guidance
15/ $USD #liquidity
Global M1 at -0.31% with broad dollar index rising to +8.1% YoY%.
16/ $USD #liquidity
YoY% of net issuance plus excess reserves still contracting at a sharp rate.
17/ $USD #liquidity
MS - "USD traders: Take the guide from excess reserves"
19/ $USD #liquidity
Updated chart with net issuance data for April 2019. Note the the light blue line.
20/ $USD #liquidity
MS - "Japanese investors tend to reduce their US Treasury holdings during Fed tightening cycles as rising hedging costs reduce the return of currency-hedged portfolios."
21/ $USD #liquidity
MS - "US banks have increased their holdings of US Treasuries. Tightness in short-term rates pushed the EFFR above IOER, and suggests that US institutions have turned to alternative funding sources, including FX currency swaps, to raise USD."
22/ $USD #liquidity
MS - "Other sources of demand have more than compensated for the impact of rising net supply on yields. Japan has reduced its Treasury holdings while
Europe has increased its exposure. Aggregate change in net foreign holdings is flat over the past year."
23/ $USD #liquidity
A decade ago, investors from Germany, France, Ireland, Spain, Luxembourg and Italy owned $250bn of US government debt. Combined holdings now stand at more than $770bn, according to UniCredit.
24/ $USD #liquidity
Global M1 contracting - -0.69%
Equities to reverse lower?
Dollar to rapidly strengthen?
25/ $USD #liquidity #OOTT
Oil prices to do the same?
26/ $USD #liquidity
Central bankers are all talk & no show at the moment...🧐
G5 balance sheet contracting -6.25% YoY%
27/ $USD #liquidity
US excess reserves contracting at a faster rate = -29.40%
28/ $USD #liquidity #OOTT
Global M1 USD YoY% slight uptick to -0.10% with updated data from ECB.
Time for the SPX to join #oil & $VEU?🧐
29/ $USD #liquidity
US excess reserves contracting at -27.20% YoY. Less than previously but still a strong dollar contributing factor.
30/ $USD #liquidity
G5 B/S slight uplift but still strongly negative at -5.74% YoY
Not much help here...🤣
31/ #liquidity
MS - "The $USD can be strong at the same time as #US asset prices are expensive only if foreign G10 central banks ease policy. Widening USG10 interest rate differentials push funds into the US, supporting both the US and asset prices."
32/ #liquidity
Trade finance has been #USD funding dependent. BIS research shows that 35% of trade is financed by the banking system (rather than firms themselves), and 80% of trade finance is denominated in $USD.
33/ #liquidity
"Foreign investors have apparently understood long-term $USD valuation risks, and are reducing USD-denominated market exposure. Foreign FDI flows tend to follow security flows. US repatriation flows have remained strong, supporting the USD."
34/ #liquidity
Flows have been primarily driven by #US-based entities reducing international exposure and repatriating funds back into $USD-denominated holdings rather than foreign accounts investing in US long-term securities.
35/ #liquidity
Great thread here on the importance of the $USD
36/ #liquidity $USD

“Based on updated projections, there is a scenario in which we run out of cash in early September, before Congress reconvenes. Request that Congress increase the debt ceiling before Congress leaves for summer recess."

- Swiss .70
@EVMacro 48/ #liquidity
US Treasury cash balance at the Fed + Foreign Repo Pool 6 month moving average vs. Broad $USD Trade Weighted Index. So what happens if $120bln-$150bln is raised from the market to rebuild the US Treasury cash balance? Hmm...🤔🧐😁
@EVMacro 52/ #liquidity $USD
Net issuance to ramp into Sept 30th as US Treasury rebuilds cash balance. Expect YoY rate of change to increase from current levels.
@EVMacro 53/ #liquidity $USD
"The projected T-bill issuance for Aug is now $157bn &
Sept issuance is now -$1bn. New forecasts reflect UST's estimates of an end-of-Sept cash balance of $350bn & the end-of-Dec cash balance of $410bn. Corp tax receipts alleviate borrowing needs in Sept."
@EVMacro 55/ #liquidity $USD
Broad $DXY pushing higher.
Now above level from 2016-2017.
Foreign Repo Pool continues to build.
Cash balance set to ramp higher.
@EVMacro 58/ #liquidity $USD
Assuming no change in the foreign repo pool balance & a 200 billion cash balance build. Hmm... 🤔
