Turkish lira sinks 6% as Erdogan defends weak currency as competitiveThe Turkish lira sank to new depths against the U.S. dollar on Tuesday, after President Tayyip Erdogan vowed his country would win an "economic war of indepedence." The lira fell to as low as 12.47 against the dollar, before pulling back to 12.08, a 6.2% drop. On Monday, Erdogan Turkey's weak currency as competitive, saying it would usher in jobs and growth. "We see the games being played on the exchange rate and interest rates. We came out of every struggle we entered honorably by taking a strong stance. With the help of Allah and the support of our nation, we will emerge from this economic war of independence with victory," he said. The lira has tumbled 63% so far this year, as Erdogan has pressured the central bank to keep cutting rates and the country's inflation rate officially hovers around 20%, though independent economists see it as more than double that. Turkey's central bank last week cut its policy rate by 100 basis points to 15%, bringing cuts since September to a total of 400 basis points.

Dollar climbs against Turkish lira after central bank cuts rates by a full pointThe dollar rose to 10.7739 Turkish lira from 10.6281 lira after the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey cut interest rates by a full point, to 15%. "The Committee evaluated the analyses to decompose the impact of demand factors that monetary policy can have an effect, core inflation developments and supply shocks and decided to reduce the policy rate by 100 basis points to 15 percent. The Committee expects that the transitory effects of supply-side factors and other factors beyond monetary policy's control on price increases will persist through the first half of 2022," the central bank said.

Lagarde says interest-rate hike next year from ECB is 'very unlikely'European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde delivered a speech on Wednesday saying it was "very unlikely" conditions would be met by next year that would allow for an interest-rate hike. "Market interest rates have risen over the past weeks, mainly as a result of greater market uncertainty about the inflation outlook, spillovers from abroad to policy rate expectations in the euro area, and some questions about the calibration of asset purchases in a post-pandemic world," she said in Lisbon. "In our forward guidance on interest rates, we have clearly articulated the three conditions that need to be satisfied before rates will start to rise. Despite the current inflation surge, the outlook for inflation over the medium term remains subdued, and thus these three conditions are very unlikely to be satisfied next year."

ECB leaves monetary policy measures unchangedThe European Central Bank, as expected, left its monetary policy measures unchanged Thursday, saying it would continue to purchase assets via its pandemic emergency purchase program at a slower pace than seen in the second and third quarters. The ECB left interest rates unchanged and said it would continue PEPP purchases through at least the end of March. Purchases under the separate Asset Purchase Program will continue at a pace of 20 billion euros ($23.2 billion) a month. ECB President Christine Lagarde will hold a news conference at 8:30 a.m. Eastern, in which economists expect her to push back against market pricing of rate increases in 2022 and 2023.

Bank of England maintains bond purchase program in 7-2 voteThe Bank of England on Thursday unanimously decided to keep interest rates at 0.1%, and its two newest members were on the side of maintaining its bond purchase program in a 7-2 vote. Dave Ramsden and Michael Saunders voted to reduce the government bond purchase target to £840 billion from £875 billion, with Ramsden switching sides from his August decision. The outlook for the labor market, and hence underlying inflationary pressures, was particularly uncertain, and that some of this uncertainty should be resolved over coming months, the majority of Bank of England members said, according to the minutes. Monetary policy would at some point need to start to unwind some of its post-pandemic stimulus, the majority said, while Ramsden and Saunders argued asset purchases when CPI inflation was above 3% and the output gap was closed might cause medium-term inflation expectations to drift up further. The pound was trading at $1.3693 shortly after the decision, and the 2-year gilt inched up to 0.31%.

Fed's Harker backs starting taper 'sooner rather than later'Philadelphia Fed President Patrick Harker said he wanted to move toward tapering asset purchases "sooner rather than later." In an interview with CNBC, Harker said that he didn't think the $120 billion per month of asset purchases were "doing a whole lot right now." The economy is being held back by supply issues that lower interest rates can't solve, he said. Harker said he was still supportive of "moving the taper along" despite potential damage to the economy from the coronavirus delta variant. The Philadelphia Fed president said the rapid acceleration in inflation seen this year "may not be so transitory." Contacts in his district have said supply chain disruptions facing the home-building sector "won't be solved anytime soon," he said. Harker won't be a voting member of the Fed's interest-rate committee until 2023.

Fed's Bostic says job data 'in coming months' will decide when to start taperingThe U.S. economy is "very close" to the substantial progress benchmark needed to start tapering its asset purchases but "a lot depends on what happens in the next couple of months," said Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic on Friday. In an interview on CNBC, Bostic said he was focused on conditions in the labor market. If job gains continue at the pace seen earlier in the summer, then that will satisfy the conditions for making substantial progress, he said. This suggests Bostic may want to wait until the November meeting to announce the slowing down of purchases. More hawkish Fed officials are pressing for a September announcement. Once the tapering program started, Bostic said he wanted to reduce the purchases "as quickly as possible." The Fed is buying $120 billion per month of Treasurys and mortgage-backed securities to hold down long-term interest rates. Bostic said he didn't think the tapering would upset financial markets. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell will speak about the economy at 10 a.m. Eastern.

Fed's Kaplan says central bank should announce taper plans in SeptemberDallas Fed President Rob Kaplan said Wednesday that he will press his colleagues at the central bank to announce a plan to taper bond purchases at its next meeting in late September. In an interview on CNBC, Kaplan said he wanted the slow down in purchases to start in October and last until June. Kaplan has been pressing his colleagues to start to pull back on its $120 billion in monthly bond and mortgage-related securities since late April. Asked if he had a lot of support from his colleagues for his position, Kaplan said there was a "range of views" but the committee is in a much better place than it was two months. Kaplan said the asset purchases don't help the economy now because the trouble is with the supply of goods and workers. Asset purchases work best to spur demand, he said. Kaplan ducked questions about whether his timetable meant that the Fed will raise interest rates as soon as next year. He said he was "divorcing" his views on tapering from his decisions on when to hike rates.

Financial stocks set for broad selloff as Treasury yields keep fallingThe financial sector is bracing for a broad selloff Thursday, amid weakness in the broader market and continued declines in Treasury yields. The SPDR Financial Select Sector ETF slumped 1.8% in premarket trading, enough to pace the declines in all of the SPDR ETFs tracking the S&P 500's 11 sectors. Among the financial ETF's most heavily weighted components, shares of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. fell 1.4%, J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. shed 2.1%, Bank of America Corp. dropped 2.6%, Wells Fargo & Co. gave up 2.7% and Citigroup Inc. slid 2.4%. The declines come as S&P 500 futures slumped 1.4% and the yield on the 10-year Treasury note was down 4.8 basis points to a 5-month low of 1.271%, amid concerns over future economic growth. Falling longer-term interest rates can hurt bank profits, as they reduce the spread banks earn on longer-term assets, such as loans, which are funded by shorter-term liabilities.

ECB announces new strategy of targeting 2% inflation on symmetric basisThe European Central Bank announced its new strategy, saying it will target inflation of 2% on a symmetric basis over the medium term, instead of targeting inflation of close to but below 2%. "When the economy is operating close to the lower bound on nominal interest rates, it requires especially forceful or persistent monetary policy action to avoid negative deviations from the inflation target becoming entrenched. This may also imply a transitory period in which inflation is moderately above target," the ECB said. The ECB also said it would it will seek to add the impact of owner-occupied housing over time while still targeting the HICP measure of inflation. The ECB has been reviewing its strategy since Jan. 2020. The euro remained up 0.4% immediately after the announcement. ECB President Christine Lagarde will hold a press conference at 8:30 a.m. Eastern to explain the move.

ECB expects to continue PEPP purchases at 'significantly higher' pace in coming quarterThe European Central Bank on Thursday offered few surprises, keeping interest rates unchanged and leaving the size of its asset purchase programs unchanged. The ECB said it expected to continue to purchase assets under its pandemic emergency purchase program at a "signficantly higher" pace than seen in the early months of this year. Analysts had been divided on whether the ECB would stick to the increased pace of purchases undertaken this quarter. ECB President Christine Lagarde will hold a news conference at 2:30 p.m. Frankfurt time, or 8:30 a.m. Eastern.

Turkish lira tumbles to record low as Erdogan pushes for rate cutThe Turkish lira hit its lowest ever level against the U.S. dollar on Wednesday after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he had asked the country's central bank to cut interest rates. The comments were made in an interview he gave state broadcaster TRT Haber late Tuesday. Erdogan said interest rates needed to start coming down in July and August. The dollar rose to a record high of 8.6862 lira from 8.5369 on Tuesday. "Turkey's inflation problem has escalated in recent months with the annual CPI rate exceeding 17% in April, so maintaining high interest rates is infinitely important. As long as the central bank's hands are tied by politics, it's difficult to see the bottom in the lira's multi-decade downtrend," said Marios Hadjikyriacos, investment analyst at XM, in a note to clients. Erdogan, who has made frequent calls for easier borrowing rates, has also fired several central bank officials over the years.

J.P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs stocks lead Dow losers as yields fall after disappointing jobs data Bank stocks took a dive in premarket trading Friday, as Treasury yields sank in the wake of disappointing government jobs data. J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.'s stock fell 1.6% to pace the Dow Jones Industrial Average's early decliners, followed by the 1.4% drop in Goldman Sachs Group Inc.'s stock . The implied price declines of those two stocks would shave about 50 points off the Dow's price, while Dow futures declined 16 points, or 0.1%. Elsewhere, shares of Bank of America Corp. were down 1.7%, Citigroup Inc. shed 1.4% and Wells Fargo & Co. gave up 1.3%, while the SPDR Financial Select Sector ETF was down 1.1%. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note dropped 4.7 basis points to a 2-month low of 1.515%, after the and the unemployment rate surprisingly rose. Lower longer-term interest rates can hurt bank profits, as it narrows the spread they can earn on longer-term assets, like loans, that are funded with shorter-term liabilities.

Fed Vice Chairman Clarida says it is not time yet to talk about taperingFederal Reserve Vice Chairman Richard Clarida on Wednesday said it was not time yet to begin conversations about possibly scaling back the central bank's asset purchases. The Fed is buying $120 billion per month of Treasurys and mortgage-related securities as well as keeping interest rates close to zero in order to stimulate the economy. The Fed has said it wants to see "substantial further progress" on its goals of full employment and stable inflation before tapering. Asked when the Fed should start "talking about talking about" tapering, Clarida replied: "We don't think so right now." Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan said earlier this week it was time to start the discussion about tapering. Several Fed officials speaking on Wednesday have all disagreed with Kaplan. "We'll get more data -and as we move through the year- we will be able to make a judgement on 'substantial further progress,' but we're not there yet," Clarida said.

Fed's Evans says chances of persistently higher inflation are 'remote'The chances that the $2.8 trillion stimulus measures passed by Congress since December will overheat the economy and generate higher inflation are remote, said Chicago Fed President Charles Evans on Wednesday. Inflation is likely to pick up in coming months as people resume normal activities and some bottlenecks emerge but simulations performed by economists at the Chicago Fed see inflation topping out at less than a full percentage point and dissipating in two or three years, Evans said in a speech to the Levy Economics Institute of Bard College. "We still have some ways to go before we meet our goals" of full employment and stable 2% average inflation, Evans said. As a result, Fed policy "is likely on hold for some time," he added. Labor market conditions required to move interest rates off zero or to start to taper the $120 billion in monthly asset purchases "will not be met for a while," he said.

XHB is up nearly 29% in 2021, and ITB has gained 28%.

European Central Bank leaves rates, bond-buying program unchangedThe European Central Bank, as expected, left interest rates unchanged and made no changes to its bond-buying efforts on Thursday. The ECB said the Governing Council decided to "reconfirm its very accommodative monetary policy stance." The central bank said it would continue to buy bonds under its 1.85 trillion euro pandemic emergency purchase program until at least the end of March 2022, while net purchases under its asset purchase program would continue at a monthly pace of 20 billion euros. The ECB said PEPP purchases, as decided at the ECB's previous meeting, will continue at a significantly faster pace over the current quarter. Interest rates were left unchanged, with the main refinancing rate at 0% and the deposit rate at minus 0.5%. ECB President Christine Lagarde will hold a news conference at 2:30 p.m. Frankfurt time, or 8:30 a.m. Eastern.

Treasury yields bounce off lows as supply loomsU.S. government bond yields bounced off their intraday lows on Thursday as investors looked to make room for issuance of new 30-year Treasury bonds and investment-grade corporate debt issuance from Verizon. The 10-year Treasury note yield rose 2 basis points to 1.540%, off their low of around 1.475%, while the 30-year bond yield climbed 4.7 basis points to 2.289%. Bond prices move inversely to yields. Broker-dealers typically bid yields higher to attract bond buyers ahead of a Treasury auction. And banks tasked with drumming up demand and selling corporate bonds will sometimes sell long-term Treasury futures to offset the risk that interest rates will rise and weigh on the prices of the debt during the issuance process.

Bank of England says it was appropriate to start preparing for negative interest ratesThe Bank of England on Thursday said it was time to start preparing for negative interest rates. "While the Committee was clear that it did not wish to send any signal that it intended to set a negative Bank Rate at some point in the future, on balance, it concluded overall that it would be appropriate to start the preparations to provide the capability to do so if necessary in the future," the central bank said, as it kept its key interest rate at 0.1% and maintained its bond purchase program. The pound rose after the decision, and the yield on the 2-year gilt also moved higher.
