Market Brief

In Asia, equity returns are turning green after a choppy morning. Chinese stocks came under pressure after MSCI (NYSE:MSCI) deferred inclusion of China’s domestic A-shares into its emerging market index. The decision is not definitive, as discussions between MSCI and Chinese authorities continue. MSCI is concerned by international investors’ access to mainland shares, as money will flow massively to Chinese shares as soon as it will be included in the index. The Shanghai Composite edges up +0.41%, while Hong Kong’s Hang Seng is up 0.32%.

In Japan, the Nikkei is about to close into negative territory for a third session, down -0.22%, after BoJ Governor Kuroda said that it is unlikely to see the yen’s effective exchange rate falling further. On the data front, April’s machine orders – used to proxy private capital expenditures – surprised the market on the upside as it jumped 3.8%m/m versus -2.1% median forecast, after a 2.9% expansion the previous month. Producer price index contracted “only” -2.1%y/y in May, while markets expected a lower figure of -2.2%. All in all, with the absence of data from the US yesterday and today, coupled with positive data from Japan and Kuroda’s comment, the dollar depreciated sharply against the yen, retreating 1.70% to 122.60. The next key support can be found at 122 (psychological threshold, while the closest resistance remains at 125.86 (previous high)).

In Australia, consumer’s confidence fell sharply in June, with the Westpac Consumer Confidence Index contracting -6.9%m/m (s.a.), reversing the encouraging 6.4% expansion a month earlier. On the top of it, Governor Stevens reiterated the RBA’s easing bias and his preference for a weaker Aussie. Initially, AUD/USD fell sharply to 0.7636, before reversing the move to 0.7749. On the downside, the 0.76 level will provide a strong support to the Aussie while on the upside, the 0.7814 threshold will be the closest resistance (Fib 38.2% on May-June debasement and previous high).

In Europe, investors are getting tired of the lack of progress in the Greek negotiations. European equity futures are broadly lower with the FTSE down -0.09%m, CAC down -0.14%, DAX down -0.90% and the SMI down -0.92%. European sovereign yields are on rise, again, with the 10-year German yields up 2.3bps, UK up 2.2bps and Spain up 5.4bps.

In Brazil yesterday, the government unveiled infrastructure concession projects in an attempt to bring back growth in the world’s seventh biggest economy. The new concessions intend to increase investments in the transportation sector (railroads, toll roads, airports and ports) as much as BRL 198.4bn over the next 5 years. The infrastructure package has a dual purpose: revitalise the Brazilian economy by investing in outdated infrastructures, but also to sugarcoat the pill of recent fiscal adjustment measures that cut in labour and social expenditures. USD/BRL didn’t react and moved sideways around 3.10.
