Today’s Outlook:

US MARKETS: The market remains cautious ahead of FEDERAL RESERVE CHAIRMAN Jerome Powell’s STATEMENT before Congress and important US Inflation data this week. Whereas Powell had signaled last week that although the Fed has made some progress in lowering inflation, policymakers are still not convinced enough to start cutting interest rates. The minutes of the Fed’s June meeting reinforced this idea. Weaker-than-expected labor data last week reinforced the outlook that the job market is cooling, giving the Fed more reasons to start cutting rates. Inflation data will certainly be a key point of consideration for the central bank in cutting rates. The June US consumer price index (CPI) will be released on Thursday, and is expected to rise 0.1% m/m and 3.1% y/y. Core CPI is expected to rise 0.2%. Investors now expect a more than 72% chance of a 25 basis point cut in September, up from the 57.9% chance seen last week. Market participants are concerned that if the central bank waits too long to cut rates, the labor market will loosen further and the economy will be pushed into recession.

ASIA & EUROPE MARKETS: GERMANY reported negative growth in their Exports & Imports in May, however Trade Balance was able to surplus higher than expected as well as the previous month. INDONESIA’s consumer confidence fell to 123.3 in June, from 125.2 in May, the lowest since February, with almost all sub-indices, including current economic conditions, economic outlook, income expectations, and job availability all showing declines, except for a slight increase in current income expectations.Today there is one more supporting data from home: Retail Sales (May) which will see if it can bounce back from June’s negative 2.7% growth, the first slump since August 2023.

GLOBAL POLITICS: US politics has also become a trending topic, with President Joe Biden being under pressure to withdraw from the presidential candidacy after his poor debate performance. Biden refused to cancel his re-election campaign on Monday, but investors are preparing to think about scenarios if another Democratic candidate emerges, which is Kamala Haris the vice-presidential candidate whose name has been mentioned.
