    UK Car Production Rises For First Time In 15 Months

    [​IMG]

    UK car production increased for the first time in 15 months in August, data released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders showed on Thursday.
    Car production grew 3.3 percent on a yearly basis in August as factories kept production lines rolling throughout the month after they brought forward planned summer shutdowns to April in preparation for the original Brexit deadline.
    The increase in August couldn't offset the substantial losses posted in April. Only 2,903 more cars were produced in August 2019 than in the same month last year, the agency noted.
    Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive, said, "While growth is always welcome, today's figures mask the underlying downward trend and strengthening global headwinds facing the sector, including international trade tensions, massive technological upheaval and, in the UK, political and economic uncertainty."
    Production for the domestic market advanced 15.2 percent in August. Meanwhile, output for exports grew marginally by 0.6 percent.
    This disguised ongoing weakness in major global markets with production for China down 43.8 percent, exports to the US falling 9.1 percent and those to the EU dropped 13.7 percent in the first eight months.
    The year-to-date production plunged 17 percent. Output failed to reach one million units by August for the first time in five years, the lobby noted.
    The SMMT repeatedly called for Brexit deal to maintain competitiveness and safeguard jobs.
    SMMT Chief Executive Hawes said the mere threat of no deal has undermined investment and the potential imposition of tariffs, border delays and additional administrative burdens would damage competitiveness.
    "We now need parliament and government to redouble efforts to get a deal that maintains free and frictionless trade," said Hawes.

    [​IMG]

    UK consumer confidence improved in September, survey results from the market research group GfK showed Friday.
    The consumer confidence index rose to -12 in September from -14 in August. "Since the Brexit referendum we have witnessed a long succession of negative Overall Index scores with the overall trend downwards," Joe Staton, client strategy director at GfK, said. "This month, British consumers appear to be treading water during this wait-and-see run-up to October 31st."
    The index measuring changes in personal finances during the last 12 months climbed three points to +2. Likewise, the forecast for personal finances over the coming year gained two points to +4.
    The measure for the general economic situation over the last year also increased two points, to -32. At the same time, expectations for the general economic situation rose three points to -35.
    Further, the major purchase index improved two points to +3. The savings index also rose two points to +23.

    Japan Corporate Inflation Expectations Remain Stable

    [​IMG]

    Japanese firms' inflation expectations held steady in the third quarter, the Tankan summary of "Inflation Outlook of Enterprises" from Bank of Japan showed Wednesday.
    Companies expect annual inflation of 0.9 percent in the year ahead, unchanged from the previous outlook.
    Similarly, the three-year ahead inflation is seen at 1 percent, the same rate as estimated in June. The projection for next five years was retained at 1.1 percent.
    The central bank aims at achieving price stability of 2 percent since 2013. Although the bank unveiled various quantitative and qualitative easing, inflation still remains well below the target.
    The Tankan survey results published on Tuesday showed that the business conditions for large manufacturers declined moderately to 5 in the third quarter from 7 in the second quarter.
    Likewise, the business conditions index for non-manufactures dropped to 21 from 23.

    Japan Services PMI Falls To 52.8 In September - Jibun

    [​IMG]

    Japanese firms' inflation expectations held steady in the third quarter, the Tankan The services sector in Japan continued to expand in September, albeit at a slower rate, the latest survey from Jibun Bank revealed on Friday with a PMI score of 52.8.
    That's down from the 22-month high of 53.3 in August, although it remains well above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.
    Individually, output was up solidly in September, although new orders grew at a pace below trend for 2019. Selling charges increased only fractionally.
    The survey also showed that the composite index came in at 51.5, down from 51.9 in August.

    UK Economic Conditions Deteriorate On Weak Manufacturing Activity: BCC

    [​IMG]

    The UK economic conditions weakened in the third quarter reflecting a marked deterioration in manufacturing sector activity, survey results from the British Chambers of Commerce showed Friday.
    According to Quarterly?Economic?Survey, manufacturing firms reporting increased domestic sales fell to zero. The domestic order balance entered negative territory for the first time in seven years, to -7 in the third quarter. Both are at their weakest since the fourth quarter of 2011.
    The balance of manufacturing firms reporting increased export sales dropped to +3, the lowest level since the fourth quarter of 2015 and the balance for export orders went negative and came in at its weakest level since the third quarter of 2009.
    The dominant services sector reported a decrease in the balance of firms reporting increased domestic sales and orders, and export orders, the survey showed. The domestic sales balance of service providers slid to 15 and the balance for domestic orders dropped marginally to 9 in the third quarter.
    Manufacturers' cashflow position - a key indicator of the financial health of a business, deteriorated. In the services sector, cashflow held steady at a low level.
    "A stuttering services sector coupled with a worrying downturn in manufacturing activity indicates that any bounce back in UK GDP growth from the contraction in the second quarter is likely to be underwhelming at best," Suren?Thiru, Head of Economics at the BCC, said.
    "This is a reality check, not scaremongering or politicking. These are some of the worst figures we've seen in a decade - and jobs, businesses, and the future success of our communities are on the line," Adam Marshall, Director General of the BCC, said.

    China's Forex Reserves Decline In September

    [​IMG]

    China's foreign exchange reserves declined in September, figures from the People's Bank of China showed over the weekend.
    Forex reserves totaled $3.092 trillion at the end of September compared to $3.107 trillion in August. The expected level was $3.105 trillion.
    The currency exchange rate and changes in asset prices affected the level of foreign exchange reserves.
    Martin Lynge Rasmussen, an economist at Capital Economics, said the central bank relied on state banks during August to contain forex volatility, but the latest forex reserves figures suggests that last month this may have been either replaced with, or supplemented by, direct forex sales by the PBoC.

    Minuette (H4 timeframe)
    ____________________
    US dollar Index
    The development of the USDX dollar index movement will be determined by the development and direction of the breakdown of the boundaries of 1/2 Median Line channel (99.15 - 98.95 - 98.75) Minuette operational scale fork. The details are shown in the animated chart.
    The breakdown of the upper boundary of the 1/2 Median Line channel (resistance level 99.15) of the Minuette operational scale fork - the development of the #USDX movement will continue to the boundaries of the 1/2 Median Line Minuette channel (99.25 - 99.40 - 99.55) with the prospect of reaching the equilibrium zone (99.60 - 99.75 - 99.95) of the Minuette operational scale fork.
    On the contrary, if the lower boundary of the 1/2 Median Line Minuette channel (support level 98.75), equilibrium zone of the Minuette operational scale fork is broken, the downward movement of the dollar index can continue to the local minimum 98.64 - the upper boundary of ISL38.2 (98.45) equilibrium zone of the Minuette operational scale fork.
    The details of the #USDX movement are presented in the animated chart.

    ____________________ US dollar vs Japanese yen
    The currency of the "country of the rising sun" in the equilibrium zone of the Minuette operational scale fork, respectively, further development of the USD / JPY movement from October 9, 2019 will be due to the development and direction of the breakdown of boundaries (107.00 - 106.80 - 106.55) of this equilibrium zones. The movement markup is shown in the animated chart.
    In case of breakdown of the upper boundary of ISL38.2 (resistance level of 107.00), of the Minuette operational scale fork, then the upward movement USD / JPY will be directed to the boundaries of the 1/2 Median Line Minuette channel (107.55 - 107.72 - 107.90) and the UTL control line (108.15) of the Minuette operational scale fork.
    The breakdown of support level 106.55 on the lower boundary of ISL61.8 of the Minuette operational scale fork together with support level of 106.45 will determine the development of the currency of the country of the rising sun inside the 1/2 Median Line channel (106.45 - 105.90 - 105.40) of the Minuette operational scale fork.
    The details of the USD / JPY movement, depending on the breakdown direction of the above equilibrium zone, are shown in the animated chart.

    The development of the cross-instrument movement EUR / JPY from October 9, 2019 will continue in the equilibrium zone (117.95 - 117.30 - 116.70) of the Minuette operational scale fork. The markup of this movement is shown in the animated chart..
    The breakdown of the lower boundary of ISL61.8 (support level of 116.70) of the Minuette operational scale fork will direct the EUR / JPY movement to the local minimum 115.84 and the boundaries of 1/2 Median Line Minuette channel (115.10 - 114.70 - 114.30).
    In case of breakdown of the upper boundary of ISL38.2 (resistance level of 117.95) of the Minuette operational scale fork, the upward movement of this cross-instrument will continue to the boundaries of the 1/2 Median Line channel (118.65 - 119.10 - 119.55) of the Minuette operational scale fork.

    Meanwhile, the development of the GBP / JPY cross-instrument movement from October 9, 2019 will be determined by the direction of the breakdown of the range :
    resistance level of 130.90 (lower boundary of the ISL61.8 equilibrium zone of the Minuette operational scale fork); support level of 129.97 (upper boundary of the 1/2 Median Line channel of the Minuette operational scale fork).
    The breakdown of support level of 129.97 will confirm that further movement of the cross-instrument will be developed inside the 1/2 Median Line channel (129.97 - 128.50 - 127.00) and the equilibrium zones (128.75 - 127.00 - 125.40) of the Minuette operational scale fork.
    If you return above ISL61.8 Minuette (resistance level of 130.90), the development of the GBP / JPY movement will begin to occur again in the equilibrium zone (130.90 - 131.95 - 133.00) of the Minuette operational scale fork with the prospect of reaching the initial SSL (133.85) and control UTL (134.50) lines of the Minuette operational scale fork.
    The movement options, depending on the breakdown direction of the above range, are shown in the animated chart.

    Australia Consumer Sentiment Weakest Since Mid-2015
    [​IMG]
    Australia's consumer confidence weakened to the lowest level in more than four years in October despite interest rate reductions, survey results from Westpac showed Wednesday.
    The Westpac-Melbourne Institute Index of Consumer Sentiment dropped to 92.8 in October from 98.2 in September. This was the lowest score since July 2015.
    Typically, an interest rate cut boosts confidence particularly around consumers' expectations for and assessments of their own finances.
    However, in this survey the indicator measuring assessment of current family finances dropped 4.9 percent to 80.2 and that for future family finances slid 3.7 percent to a five-year low of 93.3.
    Despite the rate cut, assessment for the economy for the next year plunged by 6 percent to 87.1 and the five-year outlook declined 9.1 percent to 88.9.
    Consumer attitudes towards spending also deteriorated in October. The 'time to buy a major household item' sub-index declined 4.2 percent to 114.5.
    Global events also contributed to the weak result in October with the deterioration in US-China trade relations weighing on the global economy amid speculation of a recession in the US, Bill Evans, chief economist at Westpac, said.
    Evans noted that the board of the Reserve Bank of Australia is likely to take some time to assess the impact of the three rate cuts before deciding to move again.
    Westpac expects that next move will be a further cut in the cash rate to 0.5 percent in February next year.

    Sri Lanka Central Bank Keeps Rates Unchanged

    [​IMG]

    Sri Lanka's central bank left its key interest rates unchanged despite weak economic growth and higher inflation.
    The monetary board of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka decided to keep the Standing Deposit Facility Rate and the Standing Lending Facility Rate steady at 7.00 percent and 8.00 percent, respectively, the bank said in a statement on Friday.
    The bank had reduced the rate by 50 basis points each in May and August.
    The economic growth eased to 1.6 percent in the second quarter as the Easter Sunday attacks weighed heavily on the service sector activity. The central bank forecast economic growth to remain subdued this year but a gradual recovery is expected over the medium term.
    Further, the bank expects inflation to stabilize well within the desired range of 4-6 percent with transitory supply side price pressures easing.
    The vulnerability of the currency is likely to be a key barrier to looser policy in the near term, Alex Holmes, an economist at Capital Economics, said.
    Global sentiment should start to improve around the middle of next year, and this could allow the central bank to cut interest rates further, Holmes noted. The economist expects a 50 basis point reduction in the second half of next year.

    New Zealand Services Sector Slows In September - BusinessNZ

    [​IMG]

    The services sector in New Zealand continued to expand in September, albeit at a slower rate, the latest survey from BusinessNZ showed on Monday with a Performance of Services Index score of 54.4.
    That's down from 54.6 in August, although it remains well above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.
    Among the individual components of the survey, sales (54.4), supplier deliveries (50.5), stocks (51.8), employment (52.7) and new orders (59.3) all continued to expand last month.
    "The fact that new orders/business (59.3) improved to its highest result since January should assist with general business activity going forward. However, looking more broadly the gap in performance between the services and manufacturing sectors persists. With other key economic data showing a general trend decline, the question becomes to what degree will the services sector be affected by slowing influences elsewhere in the months ahead," BusinessNZ chief executive Kirk Hope said.
