Trading Radar: ECB to Discuss Negative Rates, Mandate Changes; US Jobs Data to Be Released

By
A A A

Another crazy week for the market and economic data. Treasuries, which had felt bidless for almost two weeks, finally made some kind of move back in the positive direction, but Friday erased all of that. Equities remained on the weaker side throughout the week, staying higher for most of the day on Thursday to work off oversold conditions and then weakened into the close.

Looking ahead to next week, the roller coaster will continue; it's jobs week and we have the Bank of England and ECB rate decisions too. Nonfarm payrolls for May will be released on Friday with the consensus economist expectations calling for a 168,000 rise in payrolls. This seems about right on the money given economic data this month. Thus far, economic data has been more robust in May as a whole, though employment data is on the weaker side. However, I think that April's 165,000 payrolls will be revised lower -- maybe by 20,000 to 25,000, given the other economic data that month and the ADP report of 119,000.

We'll see a preview of what Friday will look like with Wednesday's ISM non-manufacturing and ADP private payrolls report. In theory, given its new enhanced survey measures, the ADP report is more accurate than the NFP report, so it will be a good preview. The employment subset of the non-manufacturing index tends to have the closest correlation to the NFP data, but it is far from perfect.

Fedspeak for the week includes notable speeches from John Williams and Charles Plosser. Plosser is hawkish and has led the tapering push for much of May. Williams, who has been dovish, has turned much more cautious in his speeches lately, so we'll see what he says given the freakout over Ben Bernanke's comments last Friday.

Overseas, the Bank of England will hold its first session with former Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney in control. Carney has been a moderate central banker and the UK faces more serious problems with its economy than Canada. Lately, conversation surrounding the ECB has been largely about ways to boost lending to small and medium businesses (referred to as SME by the ECB), whether or not a mandate change is in order, and whether a move into negative rates makes sense. (A move into negative rates would certainly be more harmful than beneficial, given the exodus of money on deposit with the ECB, and the fact that rates are already at zero, so they rightly so saw this as not a possibility.)

Earnings season is over now, so there are only a few reports this week. Dollar General ( DG ), Verifone ( PAY ), and Ciena ( CIEN ) are notable ones.
