GBP longs on edge as Brexit showdown clock ticks
Speculators who are long sterling may be in for additional pain as the clock ticks towards Wednesday’s Brexit showdown in the House of Commons. If PM May fails to dig out a compromise with Tory pro-EU rebel MPs within the next 32 hours and loses the mid-week vote it could spur further GBP losses on fears the UK government might collapse. Leading pro-EU Tory MP Grieve today said he did not want the government to collapse in the row over parliament’s role in the Brexit process. Nevertheless, Ladbrokes quotes 5/1 for May to no longer be PM by month-end versus 10/1 a fortnight ago. Tripped stops have helped depress GBP/USD to a seven-month low of 1.3168 today, following its break below 1.3200, with risk aversion and Brexit concerns helping to weigh on the pound. On Monday, a Goldman Sachs strategist said the “fair value” of GBP/USD is around 1.26.

Trump worsens Swiss c.bank’s FX headache as MPA looms
The spectre of a global trade war and political events are conspiring against the Swiss central bank’s desire for a weaker franc as Thursday’s quarterly SNB monetary policy assessment looms. EUR/CHF has fallen to a June low of 1.1492 today on demand for the safe-haven franc after President Trump ratcheted up the U.S. trade conflict with China. The cross had traded north of 1.1500 since June 1 (until today), after slumping to eight-month low of 1.1370 in late May as Italian political turmoil spurred buying of the CHF. Although the Italian political situation is now a lot calmer, the Swiss government remains concerned–issuing a warning today about the possibility of “considerable upward pressure” on the CHF. If events increase the allure of the franc, it could also prompt IMM speculators to jettison more of their short CHF positions–which dwarfed CHF longs by nearly four to one in the week to June 12 (50,265 contracts vs 13,020

Brexit vote may torpedo GBP/USD pre-BoE decision
Cable could slide towards 1.3000 on the back of UK political uncertainty if the UK government loses a crucial Brexit vote in the Commons on Wednesday, on the eve of a BoE meeting widely expected to keep rates on hold. The vote will also take place just over a week before an EU summit where Brexit will be discussed. On Sunday, leading pro-EU Tory MP Grieve warned that a row over parliament’s influence over the Brexit process could collapse the government (Full Story). GBP/USD broke below 1.3300 last Thursday after pro-EU Tory MPs including Grieve said May had offered them much less than they were expecting in a new amendment setting out parliament’s role in shaping Brexit. Wednesday’s key Commons vote will be teed up by an expected defeat for the government over its Brexit plans in the Lords today (Full Story). IMM speculators have held more long GBP positions than shorts for six months: some stops on cable longs will be sheltering under 1.3200 (option barrier level), and these could help generate downward momentum towards 1.3000 if tripped.

USD/JPY bulls little fazed by trade tensions, eye 111
USD/JPY remains on course to break above 111.00 with bulls little fazed by the escalation on Friday in U.S-China trade tensions because the new tariffs imposed were broadly expected. The U.S decided to slap tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods (Full Story) and this was met with an announcement by China that it would impose 25% tariffs on 659 U.S. products (Full Story). The doji on Friday’s USD/JPY candlestick line — where the market closed very close to where it opened — reflected market indecision as U.S-China tensions came into sharp focus again. However, as spot marginally took out Wednesday’s 110.85 high on Friday, the market retains a slight bullish tilt. More immediate support has built up ahead of the 110.25 Fibo — 23.6% retrace of the 108.12 to 110.90 (May to June) recovery. As the tenkan and kijun lines are positively aligned, this reinforces the underlying bullish structure. A further ratcheting up of the trade dispute this week could, however, knock USD/JPY bulls off their stride.

Several EM central banks meet this week.  The brewing trade war provides a poor global backdrop for EM.  Brazil, Mexico, and the Philippines are expected to hike rates in support of their respective currencies.  Failure to do so would likely lead to sharp losses.  Hungary is starting to get concerned about forint weakness but is not expected to move this week.  Taiwan and Thailand are in the fortunate camp where currency weakness and inflationary pressures are limited, and so are in no hurry to hike rates this week.
Banco de Mexico meets Thursday and is expected to hike rates 25 bp to 7.75%. Mexico reports mid-June CPI Friday, which is expected to rise 4.59% y/y vs. 4.46% in mid-May.  If so, inflation would continue moving away from the 2-4% target range after several months of heading towards it.

GBP braces for another long week of Brexit politics 
Sterling will once again be at the mercy of Brexit politics next week, with a House of Commons debate on finalising Brexit laws scheduled for Wednesday (June 20). GBP/USD broke below the 1.3300 level for the first time since May 29 on Thursday after pro-EU MPs in the Tory Party said PM May had offered them much less than they were expecting in a new amendment setting out parliament’s role in shaping Brexit. The pound’s fall came 48 hours after it caught a bid when the same group of pro-EU Tory MPs backed the government in a key Commons vote on shaping Brexit, on expected concessions. With the bad blood between May and her europhile backbenchers getting worse, a rebellion can’t be ruled out. Indeed, Ladbrokes has shortened the odds of May no longer being PM at month-end to 5/1, from 6/1 Tuesday and 10/1 last week. Sterling will take a knee-jerk hit if May faces a Tory leadership challenge or unexpectedly resigns.

German politics add to euro’s travails after ECB hit 
A threat to the survival of Germany’s CDU-CSU/SPD coalition government adds to the euro’s woes after the single currency’s steep slide on the back of the ECB’s dovish rate guidance Thursday. Chancellor Merkel (CDU) has so far failed to placate leaders of the CDU’s Bavarian sister party in a dispute over migrant policy ahead of a Bavarian regional election in October, with the CSU to decide on further steps at a meeting on Monday. If the dispute cannot be settled, Merkel may be forced to sack her CSU Interior Minister Seehofer. This would trigger a German government crisis which could spur further liquidation of long EUR positions. IMM speculators upped gross EUR long positions by 9% in the three weeks to June 5–a period which encompassed Italian political turmoil, to help maintain a hefty gap over gross EUR shorts . Some of those euro longs may be jettisoned if EUR/USD breaks below 1.1500 (option barrier level). 1.1510 was the 10-month low on May 29, at the height of Italian political turmoil

Higher USD yield, RBNZ to sap NZD/USD strength 

With U.S. interest rates about to become the highest of all in developed markets and risk appetite underpinned by the U.S.-North Korea agreement, the dollar is looking an attractive buy especially against the New Zeland dollar. A potentially dovish RBNZ at the end of the month and the fact that speculators are short of the greenback versus the kiwi may makes this the best dollar long play. This week the Fed Funds target is expected to rise to 2%, making the dollar’s yield the highest within developed FX markets and with stocks holding their long-term uptrends and vols in FX majors low, that big carry is going to attract a lot of demand. On the flip side, the new RBNZ Governor Orr struck a dovish tone at his first meeting on May 10 and with NZD/USD around 1% stronger than it was on May 10, the RBNZ is almost certainly going to repeat that dovish view on June 27. The 55-DMA at 0.7089 and daily Ichimoku cloud 0.7100-0.7175 provide strong resistance to sell against.

Widening UST-JGB spread spur USD/JPY bulls ahead of Fed  
The U.S. Federal Reserve is widely expected to raise interest rates for the second time this year, the focus is on whether the central bank will hint at raising rates a total of four times in 2018 which would spur USD/JPY gains. Meanwhile, the BoJ is widely to maintain its loose monetary policy on Friday. The 10-year UST-JGB yield spread will therefore likely remain a key influence over USD/JPY in coming days. The relationship (30-day log correlation) between USD/JPY and the UST/JGB spread since May 9 has been above +0.50, the threshold which means the two variables register a daily close in the same direction more often than not. Increased risk appetite in recent days in the run-up to today’s Trump-Kim summit, saw USD/JPY vault the 200-DMA at 110.19. Though Trump, Kim signed an agreement after the summit it had few details on how denuclearisation will be achieved, capping pressure on the safe-haven yen. If the 10-year UST-JGB yield spread continues to widen, this will help secure a USD/JPY bullish daily close above the 200-DMA.
