Today’s Outlook:

US MARKETS: The US CPI report for May will be released on Wednesday along with the conclusion of the Fed’s 2-day FOMC Meeting. The US central bank, which will release its latest economic and policy projections, is expected to hold interest rates steady, but the main focus of investors will be looking for clues as to when it will start to cut rates. Citi economists are currently pricing in the chance that the Federal Reserve will cut 75bps in September, November and December. Meanwhile, the financial markets generally expect at least two cuts of 25bps each this year, down from three in March. Inflation data is the Fed’s biggest consideration in adjusting interest rates, and the data could move markets ahead of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s speech. So far, US CPI in May is expected to remain flat at around 3.4% yoy, but is expected to cool on a monthly basis by 0.1%, compared to 0.3% previously.

FIXED INCOME: US TREASURY yields, which move inversely to prices, rose on Monday, reflecting expectations of higher US interest rates over the longer term. The 10-year US benchmark bond yield rose 4.1 bps to 4.469%, from 4.428% at the end of Friday, while the 30-year US Treasury yield rose 4.8 bps to 4.5958%. The 2-year US Treasury yield, which usually moves with interest rate expectations, rose 1.5 bps to 4.8846%, from 4.87% at the end of Friday. The DOLLAR INDEX, which measures the greenback’s strength over other major world currencies including the Euro & Japanese Yen, edged up 0.08% to 105.14.

EUROPEAN & ASIAN MARKETS: Adding to the uncertainty factor in this busy week is the latest political issue in FRANCE, the second largest economy in EUROZONE has to hold elections. The EURO fell to its lowest level in a month against the US DOLLAR, while European stocks fell. Today labor data from the UK will play a role, as they release Average Wage and Unemployment Rate (Apr) data. In Asia, the BANK OF JAPAN (BOJ) will also hold a 2-day meeting this week regarding their monetary policy, and it is expected that market participants will be able to provide updated guidance on how they plan to reduce their large bond purchases.

COMMODITIES: OIL prices rose to a 1-week high on hopes of increased fuel demand this summer, although the gains were capped by a stronger US Dollar and receding expectations of a US rate cut. US WTI jumped 2.93% at USD 77.74/ barrel, while BRENT closed at USD 81.63/barrel, up 2.52%. GOLD prices rebounded after suffering the biggest drop in 3.5 years in the previous session, as investors awaited inflation data and the Fed’s policy statement. Gold prices on the spot market crept up 0.72% to USD 2,309.15/ounce.

US10YT is in a Wait & See position, awaiting the 2-day FOMC Meeting decision, while still clamped between Support yield 4.43% and Resistance 4.50%. ADVISE: wait for the chosen yield breakout direction, then determine the price-related action.

ID10YT finally seems to be more determined to start its upward swing towards the TARGET yield of 7.325% according to the channel pattern of the broken downtrend. The 3 layer Moving Average support should keep the yield no lower than 6.92% – 6.88%, therefore the price is expected to weaken further in the future, especially when the yield has passed the psychological level of 7.0%.
