US Market View

U.S. stocks are seen opening mixed Thursday, with investors readying themselves for more earnings reports as well as the release of key unemployment data .China's growth slowed, but became more balanced, in the second quarter. U.S. industrial production data for June are due, as are weekly jobless claims. China's economy grew more slowly than expected in the second quarter, with GDP rising 7.9% from a year earlier, missing expectations for a rise of 8.1%. Rising commodity prices and new Covid-19 outbreaks weighed on the numbers.

At the same time, industrial output grew 8.3% in June from a year earlier, slowing from a 8.8% rise in May, while retail sales rose 12.1% from a year earlier, in a welcome sign of rebalancing toward domestic consumption.

It's a heavy day for U.S. data, with weekly jobless claims numbers and industrial production data for June topping the bill. Initial claims for benefits, due at 8:30 AM ET (1230 GMT), are expected to have inched down to 360,000 from 373,000 a week earlier. Such a development would harden suspicions that the improvement in the labor market is slowing down.  Bank of England policy makers signaled that stimulus measures may have to be trimmed back soon to keep inflation from overheating. Michael Saunders on Thursday joined Deputy Governor Dave Ramsden in noting that both growth and inflation in the U.K. economy have exceeded the central bank’s latest forecasts in May. The remarks sent the GBP higher as much as 0.3% and prompted traders to bet on a BOE interest-rate increase in May 2022, almost a full year ahead of expected tightening by the U.S. Federal Reserve. Speaking a day after data showed U.K. inflation unexpectedly surged to 2.5%, Saunders said the BOE may have to consider curtaining its stimulus program “in the next month or two” to contain inflation as the economy rebounds. Ramsden said on Wednesday he could “envisage those conditions for considering tightening being met somewhat sooner than I had previously thought.”

 Crude oil prices weakened Thursday, weighed by an unexpected rise in U.S. gasoline stocks as well as talk that OPEC+ is nearing an agreement on increasing production levels. Gold is on the rise for the third straight session. The precious metal is building on 1% gains from Wednesday as the fundamental picture improves. Inflation is surging. Both consumer and producer price inflation continue to hit multi-year highs, yet the Fed remains firm in its position that the spike in inflation is temporary and no tightening in monetary policy is required yet. Gold is considered a hedge against inflation, so rising inflation often boosts demand for the yellow metal, while the Fed sitting on their hands is a win-win for gold

How Will BoJ Meeting Affect the Yen

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
