Equities in retreat as Covid-19 cases advance, oil drops

Equity markets have come under pressure again as a spike in new Covid cases across the US has investors worried, whilst the IMF drastically cut its growth forecasts for the year. Major equity indices have retreated towards the lower end of the range traded in June but have yet to make fresh lows for the month – when they do it will get very interesting and could call for another leg lower. Stocks in Europe were down 3% on Wednesday, whilst Wall Street dropped 2.6%. European markets opened lower again Thursday, with a risk-off trade seeing all sectors in the red and telcos, healthcare and utilities declining the least.

Gold makes fresh highs, equities retreat to middle of ranges

Gold broke out to fresh multi-year highs above $1770 as real Treasury yields continued to plunge. US 10-year Treasury Inflation Protected Securities (TIPS) dipped to new 7-year lows at –0.66% and have declined by 14bps in the last 6 days. The front end of the curve has also declined more sharply in the last couple of sessions, with 2-year real rates at –0.81%. Indeed, all along the curve real rates have come down with the 30-year at –0.14%.

EIA Crude Inventories Preview: Crude oil back below $41 after mixed API data

Crude oil has risen to test $41 today as markets bet on a stronger-than-expected recovery in demand, with the actions of OPEC+ continuing to provide support. It’s the highest level since March 6th, although it is proving a hard level for the bulls to hold. Will tonight’s API report and tomorrow’s EIA crude oil inventories data given WTI some direction?

Equity markets whipsaw on US-China trade uncertainty

It’s over, it’s not over: The White House looked to be as dysfunctional as ever as Peter Navarro, trade adviser to President Trump, said the US-China trade deal was over, prompting a sharp fall in risk assets in trading during the Asian session. He was forced to retract the statement, saying it was taken out of context, before Donald Trump himself quickly tweeted: “The China Trade Deal is fully intact. Hopefully they will continue to live up to the terms of the Agreement!”.

US Presidential Election

How will the US-China relationship define the Presidential election?

Trump knows that antagonising China is a dangerous game. But in the run up to the election, it’s also a political necessity. Before the coronacrisis, there was already a perfect storm of economic and security disputes brewing between the US and China. Covid-19 compounded all the existing issues as well as adding a whole new dimension to the rift. Tension is escalating on all fronts.

Equities hold ranges, gold jumps as US real yields sink

Equity markets are still looking for direction as they flit about the middle of recent ranges. Fear of a second wave of cases is denting the mood today, as the so-called R-number in Germany jumps to 2.88, US cases hit the highest level since early May, and Apple closes more stores in the US. White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said the US is preparing for a second wave in the autumn – it’s debatable whether the current spike in cases in some states is still part of the first wave.

Confidence data from Europe, PMIs from across the world, and some key US goods orders and spending figures will help to shape our understanding of the continuing impact of Covid-19 and the trajectory of the recovery.
