Today’s Outlook:

US MARKET: Investors digested data showing US inflation cooled in May in line with expectations, while US bond yields turned higher. Uncertainty surrounding the imminent US and FRENCH legislative elections helped offset the initial reaction in the bond market to the US inflation data. The Fed’s favorite inflation indicator, the Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) price index, showed that annual price growth was 2.6% in May, as expected by economists, down from 2.7% in April. Investors were also still digesting comments made during Thursday night’s US presidential debate between Democratic President Joe Biden and his Republican rival Donald Trump ahead of the November elections.

FIXED INCOME: The latest 10-year US Treasury yield was up 4.9 basis points at 4.337% versus 4.288% at the end of Thursday.

CURRENCY: The DOLLAR INDEX, which measures the greenback’s strength against a basket of currencies, was down 0.07% at 105.82 following the PCE data. Against the Japanese Yen, the Dollar was almost unchanged at 160.71. The Yen’s decline to a 38-year low has fueled expectations of intervention by Japanese authorities to stem the currency’s weakness. On the other hand, the Euro was up 0.12% at USD 1.0714, with investors awaiting the outcome of the French general election. Concerns  over the outcome of the two-stage French legislative elections that began on Sunday pushed the risk premium on French government bonds over German bonds to its highest level since the Eurozone debt crisis in 2012.

COMMODITIES: US WTI futures fell 0.24%, and settled at USD 81.54 per barrel. Analysts from Barclays expect BRENT crude to remain in the USD 90/barrel range over the coming months. Oil prices may not change much in the second half of 2024, as concerns over Chinese demand and the prospect of higher supply from major producers will be boosted to counter geopolitical risks, according to a Reuters poll on Friday. The poll also said Brent crude is expected to average USD 83.93/barrel in 2024, while US crude averages USD 79.72. The number of active US oil rigs, which is an early indicator of future production, fell by 6 to 479 on the week, the lowest level since December 2021, as quoted by energy services company Baker Hughes. Money managers increased their net long and options positions in US crude oil futures for the week ended June 25, according to data from the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). INDONESIA: looking forward to today’s Inflation Data (June) and Nikkei Manufacturing PMI.

Issuing IDR 5 Trillion Bonds, Adhi Karya (ADHI) Achieves idA- Rating
Rating agency Pefindo assigned an idA- rating to the issuance of PT Adhi Karya (Persero) Tbk’s (ADHI) IDR 5 trillion bonds IV. At the same time, Pefindo also affirmed the idA- rating for ADHI, sustainable bonds (SR) II, and SR III bonds with a stable outlook. The funds obtained from the bond issuance are for refinancing and working capital. “ADHI’s rating reflects our view of ADHI’s important role for the government, ADHI’s strong market position, its benefits as a state contractor, and strong synergies with subsidiaries contribute to its stable limits,” wrote Pefindo, Friday (28/6/2024). However, the rating is limited by high leverage and weak cash flow protection measures, execution risk associated with ADHI’s order book growth, and a volatile business environment in the construction sector.
