Treasury yields move lower as investors await economic data, auctions

The bond market was closed on Monday, as investors observed the Columbus Day holiday.

At around 02:00 a.m. ET, the benchmark 10-year Treasury note , which moves inversely to price, was lower at around 1.6994%, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was also lower at around 2.1671%.

U.S. government debt prices were higher Tuesday morning, as investors awaited economic data and Treasury auctions.

Market focus is largely attuned to global trade developments, after reports of a partial trade deal between the world’s two largest economies.

The U.S. and China held high-level trade talks in Washington late last week, which ended with President Donald Trump saying both sides had reached a “very substantial phase one deal.”

As part of that agreement, Beijing has said it will address intellectual property rights concerns raised by Washington and buy $40 to $50 billion worth of U.S. agricultural products.

In exchange, the U.S. agreed to delay an October 15 increase in tariffs on Chinese goods.

China has since reportedly said that it wants another round of talks before signing what Trump described as the first phase of an agreement between the two countries.

Bloomberg News first reported the story on Monday, saying Beijing also wanted the U.S. to scrap a tariff hike for December.

On the data front, the Empire State Manufacturing Survey for October will be released at 8:30 a.m. ET.

The U.S. Treasury is set to auction $45 billion in 13-week bills and $42 billion in 26-week bills on Tuesday.

Week ahead: Earnings, GDP expected to show sluggish growth as investors await rate cut

Traders and financial professionals work at the opening bell on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), January 2, 2019. Drew Angerer | Getty Images

Sluggish economic and earnings growth will be a theme in markets in the week ahead, as investors await a Fed interest rate cut at the end of the month. More than a quarter of the S&P 500 companies report earnings in the coming week, the second big week of the second quarter reporting season. FAANG names, like Alphabet and Amazon, and blue chips from McDonald’s to Boeing and United Technologies are among the more than 130 companies reporting. There is also some key economic data, including Friday’s second quarter GDP, which should show a slowing to 1.8% from the first quarter’s 3.1% pace, according to Refinitiv. On Thursday, durable goods are reported and will include an update on businesses investment. There are also existing home sales Tuesday, new home sales Wednesday and advance economic indicators Thursday. But there will be no Fed speakers, after a parade of central bank officials in the past week, including Fed Chair Jerome Powell. The most impactful comments, however, came Thursday from New York Fed President John Williams, who set off a debate about how much the Fed could cut rates at its July 30-31 meeting — 25 or 50 basis points. Even as the New York Fed later said Williams comments were not about current policy, market pros took heed of his words about how central bankers should “act quickly.”

Fed dominates

Fed officials do not speak publicly in the days ahead of policy meetings, but market pros will find plenty to debate. Fed funds futures were predicting a 43% chance of a 50 basis point cut in July, after shooting as high as 70% Thursday afternoon. “For sure, the Fed is going to dominate for next week. I think we’ll get at least a 25 basis point cut. I’m thinking we’re not going to get 50 basis point cut…The Fed has been burned when it’s been bold,” said Tony Roth, chief investment officer at Wilmington Trust. Roth said he believes the market is already pricing in a quarter-point cut, and he does not see the Fed’s rate cut as much of a longer-term catalyst for stocks. If it trims by a half percentage point, he expects just a short-term pop.

Economists believe the Fed will cut interest rates even though recent data has improved. That’s in part because Powell has stressed the Fed is focused on the global economic slowdown, trade wars and low inflation, and that it will do what it takes to keep the economy expanding. “The only real catalyst that would really help the market would be if there was a trade deal with China,” Roth said. “I think the likelihood of that is less than 10%. We’re very pessimistic on the possibility of a real deal with China prior to the [2020 presidential] election.” So, in the void ahead of the Fed’s meeting, the market will be watching earnings. As earnings rolled out this past week, stocks took a rest from their record-setting streak, as some companies lowered forecasts and most beat earnings and revenue estimates. As of Friday morning, 77% of the roughly 80 companies reporting had beaten earnings estimates, and 65% topped revenue forecasts, according to Refinitiv. Based on actual reports and forecasts, earnings per share for the S&P companies are expected to be up 1% in the second quarter. That is up from expectations that the profit growth would be slightly negative this quarter. “If you look at the numbers, we’re above the averages for top and bottom line beats, but at the same time when you look at revisions, every day we’re getting revisions for third and fourth quarter, and they’re coming down.There’s a real worry of an earnings recession, when you get out into the third and fourth quarter and out to next year,” Roth said. Roth said he’s currently neutral on risk assets, and he sees a slowdown brewing in the smallest U.S. companies that could spread up the food chain. “We do see those fundamental cracks in the economy in small business and the small business labor market, and on top of that you have these big macro risks out there,” such as trade and the upcoming election, Roth said.

Slower economy

As earnings growth was muted in the second quarter, so was the pace of economic gains. If growth comes in as expected, it would be the first quarter where growth was under 2% since the first quarter of 2017. Economists are watching to see how consumer spending fared in the quarter, after a recent pickup and also whether business inventories are declining. “The data we need is not Q2. What’s at risk is the growth and magnitude of the Fed rate cut. I don’t think Q2 is going to have much impact on the Fed’s thinking,” said Marc Chandler, chief market strategist at Bannockburn Global Forex. “It’s really how Q3 is progressing. It seems to me the economy softened in April and May and picked up in June with jobs data, retail sales and manufacturing sector.” Chandler said investors will also be focused on the European Central Bank, which some economists believe could cut its overnight deposit rate to negative 0.5% from negative 0.4% currently when it meets Thursday. Chandler said odds are about 50% for the rate cut, which many also expect in September. “While we’re waiting for the Fed to figure out whether it’s 25 or 50 basis points, and we’re waiting for the ECB to get all its forms sorted out … the emerging markets are pushing ahead,” said Chandler, noting Russia and Turkey could cut rates in the next several days, after similar moves in the past week by South Africa, South Korea and Indonesia. “It just makes the story more global. You’re seeing the trade numbers from China, Japan, Singapore and South Korea weaken. You’re seeing exports form China suffer. Exports from all of Asia are suffering,” he said. “The big surprise for China and Japan has also been on the import side. The declines in their imports is really someone else’s [drop in] exports.”

Rate cuts and currency wars

Dollar strength has been a consequence of the trade war, and Fed action could help turn it around. “If the Fed fails to move, you’re going to end up with an increasingly stronger dollar,” which impacts corporate earnings, Roth said. “The dollar is quite strong and is increasingly going to be a headwind for U.S. companies. It hasn’t appreciated that much in 12 months, but if we see a divergence in monetary policy between the U.S. and the rest of the world, you would see a carry trade develop where people would want to buy assets in the U.S.,” he said. The dollar index was slightly higher on the week, but Wall Street has been focused on President Donald Trump’s negative comments on the currency’s strength. As Trump has criticized the Fed, he also complains that other central banks manipulate their currencies to give them an edge in trade. Trump has said the Fed should already be cutting rates, something it hasn’t done since December 2008. A number of Wall Street strategists have said they now believe it is possible that the U.S. government could intervene to weaken the dollar, but that would be unlikely.

Dow futures lower ahead as investors await Powell's speech

U.S. stock index futures were lower on Tuesday morning, as traders waited to hear from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell.

At around 03:35 a.m. ET, Dow futures slipped 93 points, indicating a negative open of more than 100 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were also lower.

Wall Street closed lower on Monday on the back of negative sentiment in the tech sector. However, the big focus this Tuesday is on the Federal Reserve. Jerome Powell will give a testimony at 8:45 a.m. ET. This comes just after a stronger-than-expected jobs report raised questions about the central bank’s rate policy.

Traders have priced in a 100% probability of a Fed rate cut in July, according to the CME Group’s FedWatch tool. However, expectations for a more aggressive cut were tempered by the jobs data released Friday.

Furthermore, a new NFIB survey will be out at 6 a.m. and a new JOLTS report will be released at 10 a.m. ET.

In the corporate world, PepsiCo and Levi Strauss will update investors on their latest performance.

Dollar little changed as traders await news from G20 summit

The dollar held steady against most major currencies on Thursday as traders moved to the sidelines in advance of this weekend’s G20 summit where China and the United States may reach a truce on their trade conflict.

The world’s two largest economies have agreed to a tentative truce in their trade dispute, Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post cited sources as saying. U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping are scheduled to meet on Saturday.

The report eased fears that Trump would impose additional tariffs on $300 billion on Chinese goods, but financial markets remain on edge about the trade talks, analysts and traders said.

“It’s just a lot of noise until there is a deal,” said Minh Trang, senior foreign exchange trader at Silicon Valley Bank in Santa Clara, California. “We are in a holding pattern.”

Traders shrugged off a U.S. government report that showed the economy expanded at a 3.1% annualized pace in the first quarter, unchanged from the government’s estimate last month.

In late U.S. trading, the index that tracks the dollar against the euro, yen, sterling and three other currencies was little changed at 96.206, holding above a three-month low of 95.843 reached on Tuesday.

The index broke below its 200-day moving average last week, which analysts cite as bearish for the dollar, after the Federal Reserve signaled it was prepared to lower interest rates to combat the risk from global trade tensions and sluggish domestic inflation.

The dollar index was on track for it first quarterly loss since the first quarter of 2018. China’s offshore yuan rose 0.20% to 6.8742 per dollar , helping the renminbi back toward the six-week high of 6.8370 yuan per dollar touched last week.

The offshore yuan, however, has weakened 2.26% in the second quarter.

Whether Trump and Xi strike a trade truce this weekend could shape expectations on Fed policy in the coming months, analysts said.

Traders have priced in the probability the Fed would lower rates in July and might cut rates at least three times by year-end, according to interest rates futures calculated by CME Group’s FedWatch program.

The yen edged up 0.03% to 107.755 per dollar. The Japanese currency has risen a solid 2.7% against the greenback in the second quarter, boosted by expectations of Fed rate cuts and the trade war.

Rising tensions between Iran and the United States has also stoked safe-haven demand for the Japanese currency.

At around 4.00 a.m. ET, the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note, which moves inversely to price, was lower at 2.1172%, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was down to around 2.6134%.

Friday’s payroll figures, set for release at 8.30 a.m. ET, will be critical, with the economy expected to have added 180,000 jobs in May. If figures come in much stronger or weaker-than-forecast, that could be a game changer for the markets. U.S. Federal Reserve officials have this week made dovish comments which have investors primed for a rate cut from the central bank.

For context, the 2-year Treasury note, which closely reflects Fed policy, was yielding 1.87% Friday morning, well off the 2.25% it reached in late May. The 10-year yield, the benchmark rate affecting mortgages and other loans, reached 2.40% last month.

On Wednesday, ADP’s May payroll report, often seen as a precursor to the government report, came in at a remarkably low 27,000 private sector payrolls added in May, but was seen as an anomaly.

A number of economists changed their forecasts over the past week to price in two rate cuts from the Fed this year. This came after President Donald Trump’s threat to impose tariffs on all Mexican goods, sending the stock market into volatile territory and causing the bond market to price in a lower rate environment.

On the data front, apart from nonfarm, May’s unemployment and average hourly earnings figures are due to be released at 8.30 a.m. ET on Friday. Meanwhile, April’s wholesale trade data is due at 10 a.m. ET and consumer credit figures will be published at 3 p.m.

There are no major Treasury bond auctions Friday.
