• RiskOFF mode
• China allowed CNY to weaken
• safe haven rally bonds/gold/JPY
• creditspreads wider
• volatile stocks with some V-shaped intra-week rebound
• 10 further CB's cut rates!
2/n update Global Markets YTD as of wk32
3/n update Global Markets performance WoW, MoM, YTD, YoY as of wk32
4/n update FX matrix wk32

• JPY bid on safe haven rally
• CNY allowed to weaken across the board (exports to all = #CurrencyWar )
• TRY top performer as pressure eases (for now)
• NZD (small intra-week rebound) but weak after higher than exp 50bp cut by RBNZ
5/n FX VOLA heatmap as of wk32

the triple headline FED tiny 25bp "insurance cut" /Trump additional 10% on $300bln China exports to US /PBoC "response" of letting CNY weaker rattled FX volatility board (although kinda cooled down by end of wk)
6/n Global 10Y Govt heatmap update wk32

hallelujah - bonds know trouble ahead...

Italy the outlier as Salvini made some more headlines. (see my Bart chalkboard joke the other day)
7/n Global Yields 2Y 10Y curve wk32

• Brazil got upgraded 1 notch
• 10 Central Banks (!) cut rates this week incl RBNZ -50bp, RBI -35bp, Thailand, Philippines both -25bp
• massive bond bull flattening and this continues to smell trouble
8/n Credit market moved, but don't show distress levels

• ITRAXX Main & Xover
• ITRAXX Financials Sen & Sub
9/n China's response led to a spike in stocks vola = sample VIX & VSTOXX but reversed from peak intraweek as some fast money covered short stocks/long vola theme
10/n US rates market update: swap curves

• bull flattening this week again
• most worrisome is 2s5s, making new lows = that market tells us is getting worse without fearmongering. SWP 2s5s got more inverted.
11/n a log chart on purpose to visualise the velocity ... US govvies outright yields continue to fall ... and make some people wonder if this is really a mid cycle adjustment / insurance cut by FED or if this long stretched cycle has indeed turned
12/n 1999-2001, 2006-2008 late cycles compared with current yields keep falling sharply and curve keep flattening (incl inversions), there is no doubt, mkt is pricing in the economy is getting worse not better.Obviously it's mostly about China-US trade war,but not only
13/n ...ergo, plenty more FED cuts are coming. Trump doesn't even have to pressure FOMC.
14/n update on my "tongue-in-cheek" yieldcurve vs VIX chart

as I have been posting this for ages, if (IF) this is true, I always thought 2019 H2 will have higher implied stock vola...

trigger ?? perhaps it seems it could be China... trade war + HK is getting out of hands
15/n NMI came out. just wanted to point out, employment survey was good and the weighted number with ISM suggest further job growth... but...
16/n ...but... did JOLTS [maybe] roll over ? 5th consecutive month below peak... UE rate moved from 3.6 to 3.7. Not leading indicators, but deffo a must to watch as they reflect cycles.
17/n and it all comes together again... UE rate vs yieldcurve... the FED must and will re-steepen the curve. and THAT is usually accompanied with a stock market roll over... sooner or later...and I am not even a perma-bear, just a bond guy
18/n ...hence no comment on this... just a snapshot as of wk32
19/n quick glance towards Australia... which is battling with global / China slowdown and their housing issues ... after ok-sh Manufacturing PMI, the Services and Construction PMIs were yet again horrendous... oh, they wanted to diversify from mining to services ? mmh...
20/n one more Australia chart: China slowdown, housing slowdown = international and domestic growth problems continue... yields fall , yieldcurve flattening, AUDUSD tanks... RBA dovish, and will cut more than the current 1%. Technicals AUDUSD different matter. Or FED cuts 100bp?
21/n oh, one more... Inflation expectation DIFFERENTIAL between Australia and US ... vs FX spot...
22/n different subject ... #Krosa is approaching in Taifun season... be safe
23/n last but not least ...

now I’ve seen it all ! 😂😂🤣

• “instrument equality”
• “manipulate culture of the instrument “
• “be more creative, more brave”

24/n next week on the radar

• CPI Europe, US
• NY empire, Philli Fed
• UoM flash
• US permits
• JP machinery tool orders
• Norges
25/n thats all folks, enjoy the beautiful rest of the Sunday and a great week ahead.
