    3 Numbers: Eurozone consumer confidence set to hold steady in February
    Retail spending has taken a post-Brexit vote hit in the UK. However British manufacturing seems to be weathering the post-vote era, with only a modest decline expected for the CBI Industrial Trends Orders Index for February. Meanwhile the European Commission’s Consumer Confidence Indicator is on track to hold steady this month. And turning to the leading EU economy, further declines in the German 10-year yield will signal renewed concern about the Eurozone.

    Quiet trading Friday in the US ahead of a long weekend (markets closed Monday for President’s day)

    The S&P 500 made a small gain, USD index rose (mainly because of a weak EUR); bond yields were down a touch.

    Note in the chart below that the USD index is not reacting to the rising prob. of a March 15 rate hike. Since 1994 the Fed has never moved unless market pricing in the lead up was at least 75%. Today March is priced at only 40%. Even June is marginal.

    But plenty of Fed speakers next week with a chance to “guide” the market.

    Meanwhile Pres.Trump is promising more “tremendous” announcements.

    The second chart shows the US fed funds curve in a global context. Only the Reserve Bank of New Zealand is priced to follow a similar track to higher rates.

    I would tend to agree with that. There are new efficiencies and economies of scale to take into account though.

    Consumer spending did indeed slide in the UK during January by 0.3% month-on-month after a 1.9% fall m/m in December. It supports the thesis that a post-Brexit...

    Morning Markets: Negative Trump effect spills over to Asia
    The demise of the Trump trade rally on Wall St on Thursday was felt across Asian markets today, with key bourses losing ground. The Nikkei headed sharply lower, with the high yen eroding confidence in the outlook for Japan's export-driven economy. Meanwhile in neighbouring South Korea, the vice-chairman of Samsung, Lee Jae-Yong, was arrested over bribery allegations; the uncertain future for the heir apparent of the global electronics giant weighed on its share price.
