Oil rally stalls ahead of Yellen remarks

  • European equities have opened with a softer tone and are trading within a narrow range ahead of the holiday weekend in UK and US and Fed Chair Yellen’s speech later today. We do not expect any comments on the near-term path of monetary policy; however, investors may view this as a key risk event. European bond yields are generally 1-2bps lower with some mixed performance across periphery debt. Oil and gas are among the weaker performers as crude oil retreated back below $50. In FX, USD/JPY gained 0.2% after falling by as much as 0.2% following the G7 communiqué. We highlight our top EM trading recommendations in the latest.
  • Japan’s nationwide CPI ex-perishables fell by 0.3% y/y in April, a smaller-than-expected decline. We expect the nationwide core CPI to fall 0.5% y/y in May, with the possibility of a 0.1pp deviation either up or down depending on energy components. Japanese investors have showed a clearer shift from JGBs to foreign bonds in their FY16 investment stance.
