Steady start for stocks with PMI, inflation and survey data on the way

Steady start for stocks with PMI, inflation and survey data on the way

US and European indices were steady to start the week with the Dow and S&P posting small gains while the Dax and FTSE posted small losses. It was a relatively quiet day for economic news on both sides of the Atlantic and traders appeared to be digesting last week’s central bank news and preparing for tomorrow’s flurry of announcements. Apple had an up and down day starting out with a rally but then turning sharply downward after announcing smaller and cheaper versions of its iPhone and iPad and a price cut for the iWatch. Trades weren’t very enthusiastic about the news which suggests that the iWatch hasn't been doing as well as hoped. The shift from lower margin more mainstream priced products also indicates the growth potential in the high end has probably been tapped out. In energy trading, WTI crude oil rebounded toward $40.00 while gasoline gained 1.5% as traders start to anticipate summer driving season. Natural gas, on the other hand failed to hold onto early gains and turned downward with traders recognizing the current cold snap as the last gasp of a weak home heating season. The main action in currency markets today was a moderate 0.5% decline in GBP relative to USD and EUR. Uncertainty over a close Brexit vote and questions over the recent budget have been overhanging Sterling after Iain Duncan Smith, a former Conservative party leader, resigned his post as Works and Pensions secretary in opposition to a government plan to cut benefits for disabled people There also have been suggestions Mr. Smith’s support for Brexit may have led to tensions with senior cabinet members as well. This development didn’t have a major impact on the FTSE which has been trading similar to US markets so far today. Sterling may remain active through tomorrow’s UK inflation reports. Asia Pacific indices have continued to trend higher this morning as they try to catch up to the rebound gains made in other regions having lagged behind in recent weeks. A rebounding USD on comments from Atlanta Fed President Lockhart trying to put an April rate hike back on the table despite last week’s dovish FOMC signals has knocked JPY back taking some of the pressure off of Japanese stocks, while the India market continues to rally and Chinese markets benefit from the return of margin lending. There are a flurry of economic surveys due over the next day or so, headlined by Flash PMI reports for Japan, the US, Germany and France which may give the first insight into how global economies are performing in March so far. Germany may attract particular attention with the ZEW investor and IFO business surveys also on the way.
