ZFX: Negative interest rates by Fed? Another shock for the markets

08-05-2020 04:25

Thursday (May 7) Review

  

  • Oil prices retreated all the gain in earlier session after the announcement of the poor US employment figures. The June contract of WTI crude futures edged lower finally, dropping from $26 level. Saudi Arabia has raised the crude oil price of its export to Asia for June, which was just bullish in a very short term.
  • The initial jobless claims fell to 3.169 million last week, a drop of five consecutive weeks, which was still more than the expectations, around 3 million. The continuous claims rose to 22.647 million, far more than 20 million which was expected. The numbers indicate that the current situation of the US labor market was worrying and forecast a very gloomy result of the NFP on Friday, especially after the ADP employment report. It is now expected 21.5 million job cuts in April NFP and the unemployment rate will jump to 16%.
  • During the US session, the market started to examine the possibility of the negative rate policy by Fed.  The pricing of the Fed funds futures contracts showed that traders are now expecting the Fed may cut the rate below zero, at the end of the year. The dollar plunged as the negative rate policy would be very likely to make a massive sell-off pressure.
  • The global pandemic is still severe, with nearly 4 million confirmed cases worldwide and more than 270000 deaths. The outbreak in Russia is not under control so far. Once again the new cases jumped over 10000 in a single day. The experts there believed that the cases will still increase sharply in the coming days.

ZFX analyst Jacob Leung said that if investors begin to expect negative rate policy of Fed due to the poor economic data, it would be very bearish to the greenback, at least in the short term. The drop of the dollar will inevitably have a big impact on global asset prices. It is very important for investors to pay attention to whether Chairman Powell will clarify such possibility, which may cause another big move.
