FX Monthly Report November 2021

Monthly commentary covering the FX markets, providing insights on recent developments on select currency pairs, this month we focus on Turkey.

The report includes a macroeconomic overview as well as desk comments and technical analysis on key currency pairs.

Quarterly

Quarterly Metals Report – Q4 2021

The global macro picture is starting to present some downside risks in the near term as China's economy is set to slow further and supply-chain bottlenecks continue to cap growth. New orders and new export orders in China are contractionary, and we expect demand in Q4. Order backlogs and lead times for products will continue in Q4, limiting growth, and real consumption is weaker than it looks. Higher costs from shipping, raw materials and energy will take their toll on the consumer, and we expect end-user demand to suffer. The final piece of the jigsaw is the reduction in stimulus from central banks and how that will impact financial markets, bond yields, and the dollar has rallied while stocks corrected, but what will this trend continue?

Electric Vehicle and Battery Material Report Q4 2021

Our analysts provide an insight into the Electric Vehicle and Battery Material Market. They provide an update on how the energy industries in major regions are transitioning towards renewable alternatives, new policies to support EV sales, and a fundamental outlook for Nickel, Cobalt, and Lithium. Sales of EVs have repeatedly beaten expectations and this will likely remain the case in 2022 even with the chip shortage. Robust demand for batteries has caused significant tightness in the battery material market.

Hot and Cold Coffee Report 2021

Hot and Cold - Coffee Market Outlook

Following the release of our Crop Update last month, our analysts provide a more in-depth breakdown of the S&D balance, whilst looking at the damage to the Brazil crop as a result of the drought and frosts. The two weather events combined is unprecedented. We have entered the deficit year and Brazil shipments are falling, and the gross short and defaults are a real threat. Consumption is back to pre-pandemic levels but high prices could cause headwinds to demand in this higher unemployment environment, despite coffee's inelasticity of demand.

Coffee Crop Update - Choppy Waters

Read our short coffee crop update, with commentary on recent price activity, coffee market forecasts and potential trading strategies to take advantage of market movements. The weather in Brazil is still not preferential for a large 2022/23 crop, aiding bullish fundamentals further, but there is a long way to go. Shipments and inventories are starting to fall as we move into a deficit, but the front months are plagued by macro events. Traders need to be patient, but what are the key themes for the market in the next month?

Brazil in Vogue - Coffee Market Update

Following the release of our Crop Update last month, our analysts provide a more in-depth breakdown of the S&D balance, whilst looking at the bright spots for consumption post-COVID. Brazil shipments are starting to fall, but the deficit has not yet shown its cards. European economic growth lags behind the U.S. and we expect this to remain the case due to poor vaccine policy management, causing consumption growth in the bloc to be weaker.
