An unbelievable exchange on April 21, 2020 where Reserve Bank of New Zealand Governor Adrian Orr says he’s ‘open minded’ on direct debt monetization. Orr is guilty of honesty here …. he is a trained and respected economist, he knows exactly what he is saying here. This clip should be viewed as a signpost and turning point in monetary policy for the 2020s, if not beyond.

Can central banks keep plugging leaks in the dam?

Adam Button from ForexLive talks about the coronavirus crisis in markets and how it’s affected the Canadian dollar.
"What’s happened is a US dollar funding crunch. The world runs on US dollars and there have been no other safe havens so everyone has been piling into the dollar. The relative stability of the loonie – as tough as that is to believe – is a good sign for the Canadian financial system. We’re not seeing the level of panic moves from the BOC as some other central banks are making. That gives me a sliver of confidence but my fear is that the market will crumble again when the first few waves of large-scale US testing begin.
For now, everyone is doing the only thing that works and that’s buying US dollars. Some fresh swap lines today have inspired a small reversal but nothing

The market is search for a new theme. Here is where to watch

The themes of 2019 were 1) the US-China trade war 2) Brexit 3) Central bank easing. With the signing of the phase one deal and with central banks easing close to the finish line (the BOE, RBA and some EM central banks are still in play), the market suddenly finds itself without a theme.

Two charts to watch for the pulse on global growth

The global economy slowed in mid-2019 on the combination of higher interest rates and the trade war. Since then the Fed and others have lowered rates and now we have a ceasefire in the trade war.
Some things like real estate have quickly turned around and stock markets are clearly pricing in more of the same, yet manufacturing is still soft. A few manufacturing surveys were out today and the theme was a continue flatline.
A good spot to watch is the JPMorgan global PMI because it aggregates them. It started 2018 at 54 then slowly sank to 49.3 into mid-2019. The latest number was out today at 50.1, which is barely expanding and lower than the previous month.
The other spot to watch is AUD/USD. At the end of December it broke above the 200-day moving average for the first time in 23

The ECB over-delivered (and so did the euro)

A month ago, Bank of Finland leader Olli Rehn said it was important to come up with a significant and impactful policy package in September.

"When you’re working with financial markets, it’s often better to overshoot than undershoot, and better to have a very strong package of policy measures than to tinker," he said.

The euro slumped on the headlines. The problem was that after you say something like that, market participants adjust and that makes it tougher to surprise.

So the ECB went on a coordinated disinformation campaign. Speaker after speaker over the past month went on the offensive. Knot said there was no need to resume QE, Weidmann said the same and others spoke along the same lines. A series of leaks continued right up until the decision that suggested QE may not come.
