Breakfast Today

Despite a report from the Energy Information Administration showing a bigger than expected weekly drop in crude oil inventories, US equities remained nervous following Tuesday's shock tumble in energy prices. Complicating the issue still further Iranian Oil Minister, Bijan Zanganeh, was reported as saying OPEC members were considering further production cuts, although he suggested the Organization should wait until the effect of earlier reductions had become clear. Looking elsewhere, a separate report from the National Association of Realtors showing an unexpected rebound in existing home sales in the month of May added little more to narrow and lacklustre trading on the Dow Jones Industrial and S&P-500, which simply oscillated either side of unchanged through the session before closing with just fractional downward movements. The NASDAQ was rather more enthusiastic, with strength evident in software, electronic storage and biotech stocks, contributing to a reasonable upward move by the tech-heavy index. By contrast in the wider market, oil service stocks remained weak with the Philadelphia Index for the sector slumping by 3.4% and hitting its lowest intraday level in several years. Treasuries pulled back modestly in early trade after Tuesday's strength, pushing the yield on benchmark ten-year notes up by 2.4 basis points to 2.177% at one stage, but even this turned tail to settle almost unchanged at 2.156% by the close. The Bank of Japan's Deputy Governor, Kikuo Iwata, this morning pushed back against calls for the bank to start raising interest rates in order to avoid being left behind by other major central banks, noting his country still had a "long way to go to achieve the price stability target of 2%. This means that monetary easing is still necessary in Japan". The Nikkei accordingly did not participate in the Asian market rally, closing unchanged, while the S&P/ASX 200 was strongly up as mining giants Rio Tinto (RIO.L) and BHP Billiton (BLT.L) rallied and the bear trend in iron-ore reversed to put on almost 1%. Elsewhere, the Shanghai Composite rose on further contemplation of the MSCI's decision to allow Chinese equities into its Emerging Markets benchmark index, while the Hang Seng and KOSPI also firmed. The major European markets moved to the downside on Wednesday, taking the STOXX Europe 600 off by 0.18%. Downward pressure on oil and financials was reflected by weakness in the CAC-40 Index, which dropped by 0.4%, and the German DAX which dipped by 0.3%. Sterling, however, pushed above US$1.27, erasing early losses after hawkish comments made by the Bank of England's chief economist. "Provided the [economic] data are still on track, I do think that beginning the process of withdrawing some of the incremental stimulus provided last August would be prudent moving into the second half of the year," Haldane noted in a speech. Voting to maintain the base rates unchanged at the June MPC meeting, however, with still few signs of higher wage growth and chances of a sharper than expected slowing in the economy despite upward pressure on inflation, noted as reasons "for monetary policy not to rush its fences". Trading in a narrow range, the FTSE-100 recouped the worst of its losses during the afternoon to end down just 0.33% with Provident Financial (PFG.L) by far the hardest hit amongst blue-chip while a slightly more upbeat trading statement than expected from Whitbread (WTB.L) allowed the shares to make a good gain. Macro data due from the UK today includes its CBI Industrial Trends Survey and CML Mortgage data, while MPC Member Professor Kristin Forbes is due to make a speech. The EU provides its June Consumer Confidence figures along with a new publication, the Economic Bulletin, which replace the ECB Monthly Bulletin and is published two weeks after each Governing Council meeting. The US offers its Initial Jobless Claims, April Housing Price Index and Kansas fed Manufacturing Activity for June, while a speech is also due from the FOMC's Jerome Powell. UK corporates due to release earnings or trading updates include Carnival (CCL.L), Go-Ahead Group (GOG.L), Chemring Group (CHG.L) and Saga (SAGA.L). Yesterday's Queen's Speech contained little in the way of new news, simply delivering Tory policies related to the implementation of Brexit; one surprise, however, was that there was no mention of the US President's anticipated UK visit during the State Opening of Parliament, which suggests the event has now been deferred to a more predictable time in the future. Theresa May, is heading to the EU leaders summit in Brussels today amid heightened security after a foiled terror attack at the Belgian capital's main railway station; tonight the UK Prime Minister is expected to propose a framework for a quick agreement on residency for EU nationals and employment rights. European equities are seen heading for a lacklustre opening this morning, with a downbeat FTSE-100 seen opening flat to 5 points down."
