DB’s Jim Reid concludes the in a single day wrap
It might need been a model new quarter, however yesterday was one other difficult day for markets, particularly with the bond sell-off displaying no signal of letting up. In reality, the 10yr Treasury yield (+10.8bps) closed at a post-2007 excessive of 4.68%, while the 10yr actual yield (+9.7bps) closed at a post-GFC excessive of two.33%. And regardless of some better-than-expected information, threat belongings got here underneath stress alongside WTI crude (-2.17%) falling again beneath $90/bbl. Equities have been weak in Europe and down for a lot of the day within the US however a late rally left the S&P 500 (+0.01%) flat by the shut. Europe’s STOXX 600 (-1.03%) fell to a 6-month low, and the German 10yr actual yield (+12.1bps) hit a post-2011 excessive of 0.58%. The most important occasion at the moment is the US JOLTS information as we see how tight the labour market nonetheless is underneath the floor.
Starting with markets and there have been a number of elements driving the newest sell-off. First up, the shortage of a US authorities shutdown over the weekend was seen in a extra bearish gentle because the day progressed, because it eliminated a tangible threat for the financial system and was seen as elevating the probability of extra charge hikes. For occasion, futures raised the probability of a hike on the subsequent assembly in November from 19% on Friday to twenty-eight% yesterday. And trying on the prospect of a hike by December, the probability rose from 39% final Friday to 51% by yesterday’s shut.
Second, the sell-off then obtained added gas from the newest ISM manufacturing print for September, which was notably higher than anticipated. The headline print got here in at 49.0 (vs. 47.6 anticipated), which was the very best since November 2022. And there was a number of excellent news on the element degree as effectively, with new orders (49.2) at a 13-month excessive and employment (51.2) again in expansionary territory. That was echoed by the ultimate manufacturing PMI as effectively, the place the ultimate studying was revised as much as 49.8 (vs. flash 48.9). So there have been a number of indicators that the financial system was proving extra resilient than anticipated.
Third, feedback from quite a few Fed audio system reiterated the higher-for-longer narrative. Governor Bowman, one of many extra hawkish FOMC members, instructed that a number of additional charge hikes could also be wanted whereas Cleveland Fed President Mester noticed one other hike this yr as possible. Comments from Vice Chair of Supervision Barr erred on the extra cautious facet, saying that the extra essential query was “how long we will need to hold rates at a sufficiently restrictive level”. Overall, regardless of the extra encouraging latest inflation information, the newest Fed commentary exhibits no indicators of a downshift from the September median dot plot view of one other charge hike by year-end.
Speaking of US financial resilience, our personal US economists have simply launched an up to date set of forecasts in a single day. Their baseline nonetheless sees a recession going down, however they now see that beginning a bit later in Q1 2024, and solely lasting two quarters. Their view is that the gentle touchdown case has strengthened over latest months, however there are nonetheless loads of headwinds, together with depleted financial savings, tightening credit score situations, and a return of pupil debt funds. For the Fed, they proceed to see the tightening cycle as over now, albeit with the chance of one other hike. And they now anticipate the Fed to start out slicing charges from June 2024, with 175bps of cuts subsequent yr. See their full replace right here.
With some extra positivity concerning the financial system, bonds continued to unload all through the day, with yields on 10yr Treasuries up +10.8bps to a post-2007 excessive of 4.68%. The 30yr yield (+8.9bps) additionally pushed greater to shut at 4.79%. It was actual yields that drove the rise in charges, with the 2yr actual yield (+7.3bps) at a brand new post-GFC excessive of three.07%, and the 10yr actual yield (+9.7bps) at 2.33%. At the identical time, the 2s10s curve continued to steepen, with a +4.9bps improve to -42.8bps. On one degree, that is likely to be seen as a optimistic signal given the 2s10s is a traditional recessionary indicator, however then once more, the final 4 cycles noticed it transfer out of inversion territory simply earlier than the recession started.
Over in Europe, there was a equally sturdy bond sell-off, with yields on 10yr bunds (+8.2bps), OATs (+7.8bps) and BTPs (+2.6bps) all transferring greater. But it was gilts that led the strikes, with the 10yr yield up +12.7bps to 4.56%, while the 30yr gilt yield (+11.4bps) surpassed its mini-budget peak yesterday to shut above 5% for the primary time since 2002. Similarly to the US, it was actual yields that led these strikes, and the German 10yr actual yield (+12.1bps) hit a post-2011 excessive of 0.58%.
The bond sell-off created a tricky backdrop for equities. The S&P 500 traded round half a p.c decrease for a lot of the day, however a rally within the final hour of the US session left it flat on the day (+0.01%). Tech shares have been a giant winner although, with the FANG+ Index (+1.38%) going in opposition to the broader development to advance for a 4th consecutive session. The breadth of losses outdoors of tech was highlighted by the equal weight index declining -1.11% with solely 22% of the S&P 500 constituents up on the day regardless of its flat headline efficiency. Small caps additionally underperformed with the Russell 2000 index down -1.58%. Back in Europe there have been bigger losses, leaving the STOXX 600 (-1.03%), the DAX (-0.91%), the CAC 40 (-0.94%) and FTSE 100 (-1.28%) decrease on the day.
Across different asset courses, the greenback was a key beneficiary, with the broad index (+0.69%) rising to a 10-month excessive and the euro falling to its lowest in opposition to the greenback since final December at 1.049. Meanwhile, oil declined for third day in a row, with WTI crude falling again beneath $90/bl (-2.17% to $88.82/bl). Both WTI (-5%) and Brent (-6%) have seen their sharpest 3-day decline for the reason that oil value rally began in June. So some proof that uncertainty over the demand outlook is weighing on the sturdy latest oil rally.
Overnight in Asia, regional equities are additionally promoting off with the Nikkei 225 down -1.43%. The Hang Seng is down -2.98% after reopening put up Monday’s vacation. Many different markets stay closed on this vacation week. There was additionally an RBA determination in a single day, with the central financial institution preserving charges at 4.10% with a lot of the assertion similar to the final one. S&P 500 futures are virtually unchanged (-0.06%), with Treasury yields up lower than a foundation level throughout the curve.
Elsewhere yesterday, the primary information spotlight got here from the ultimate manufacturing PMIs, though they principally echoed the preliminary impressions from the flash studying. Indeed, the Euro Area PMI was precisely in keeping with the flash print at 43.4, and Germany’s was revised down barely to 39.6 (vs. flash 39.8). Otherwise, the Euro Area unemployment charge was again at its latest low of 6.4% in August, which is its joint-lowest degree for the reason that formation of the one foreign money.
To the day forward now, and the primary information spotlight would be the US JOLTS launch of job openings for August. Otherwise, central financial institution audio system embrace the ECB’s Simkus, Lane and Villeroy, together with the Fed’s Bostic.
