Trade ideas thread – Friday, 7 June, insightful charts, technical analysis, ideas

Major
FX rates tracked relatively subdued ranges while traders awaited
the US jobs report due Friday morning US time.

Locally
here the focus was on Chinese trade data for May, which showed
exports accelerating well ahead of expectations, but imports slumping
below expectations. The patchy recovery continues in China, some
sectors performing well (export-focused, as shown today) and others
not (domestic demand related).

Earlier
we had April household spending from Japan. The m/m fell from March
while the y/y rose for the first time in 14 months. We await further
clarity from Japanese economic data for signals that wage rises are
promoting consumer demand. The Bank of Japan meet next week and it
would seem too early for them to decide to tighten a little further,
but there are plenty of whispers that they’ll do just that. After
two or so years of such whispers failing us (they were finally
correct in March, to be fair) I’m wary.

Japan’s
finance minister Suzuki was
on the newswires with regular sort of verbal intervention remarks.
USD/JPY has risen a touch on the session.
