OPEC meeting weighs on crude oil ahead of US EIA inventories data

Crude oil is on soft form today as markets await news on the next OPEC meeting and today’s US crude oil storage data. WTI and Brent futures contracts for August have crept below opening levels ahead of the EIA data. Earlier in the session, crude oil had spiked above $38, while Brent had broken above $40 per barrel – both of which were the highest levels since early March.

Morning Note

Stocks grind higher, dollar squeeze continues

The S&P 500 is down less than 5% for the year and is 40% above its pandemic trough, whilst the forward price-to-earnings multiple has risen to a two-decade high at 22.4. US GDP is seen falling by an astonishing 52.8% in the second quarter, according to the Atlanta Fed. Whilst this number is always up for a lot of debate, it’s clear the contraction in the second quarter is going to be massive. Something has to give – but perhaps not yet.

IPO market coming back to life?

The Covid-19 pandemic rocked global capital markets, creating seismic volatility in equity markets and leaving many planned IPOs Covid casualties. But as risk appetite recovers and there is still a lot of cash sitting on the side lines we are seeing the frozen IPO market starting to thaw.

OPEC meeting preview: record production cut to be extended?

Crude oil and Brent oil have continued to push higher this week on hopes that the upcoming OPEC meeting will see the cartel and its allies agree to extend production cuts. Officials from major oil producers were originally scheduled to hold their next (online) meeting on June 9th, but current OPEC president Algeria has proposed moving the meeting forward to June 4th – this Thursday.

Stocks nudge up, GBP breaks higher

Stock markets continued to strengthen as economies re-open but have yet to retest last Thursday’s highs. The unrest in the US is not likely to have a material impact on equity markets in the near term, largely because of the large-cap weighting, but we should caution that it has the potential to delay the economic recovery in the US. People who would have been going back to work, spending in restaurants and bars, reopening their stores, will not in this febrile environment. President Trump is doubling down on using force to combat the unrest.

Morning Note

Stocks rally, dollar offered, OPEC meeting may be brought forward

European markets nudged up on Monday as the cash opens followed the futures higher and bulls try to recover last week’s highs. Stocks across Europe finished Friday sharply weaker on US-China fears that eased a bit after the cash markets closed, but still the major indices rose last week.

Week Ahead

Week Ahead: Central banks on tap, NFP faces massive Covid hit

The economic calendar is packed full of top-tier releases this week, starting with manufacturing PMIs from China and the US. The RBA, BOC, and ECB all announce their latest policy decisions – and, in the case of the ECB, potentially ruffle a few more feathers in Germany. And, of course, we have the latest US nonfarm payrolls report to round off the week.

ECB preview: Welcome to Japan?

The European Central Bank (ECB) convenes next week (June 4th) and is expected to increase emergency asset purchases as it continues to show it will ‘do whatever it takes’. With the scope of the Covid damage becoming a little clearer and deflation rearing its ugly head again, the ECB will stick to the old playbook of more QE to fight it. As ever the market will wonder whether this is ‘enough’, and as ever the answer will come back in the negative.
