[USD] U.S. Bond Strategy for June 20

[USD] Treasuries found sustained support on Tuesday as markets continued to absorb the escalating trade conflict between the US and China, this time with US President Trump threatening to impose another $200bln in tariffs on Chinese imports. How and when this all ends is anyone's guess. However, as both sides appear to be digging in (not to mention retaliatory plans from other nations impacted by steel and aluminum tariffs) it is not entirely clear how consumers and small businesses are going to make it out unscathed. This sentiment of concern was echoed on Monday by Atlanta Fed President Bostic who indicated business optimism in his region is fading amidst concern related to tariffs.

[USD] US Preview: Existing Home Sales

[USD] The April existing home sales report is on Wednesday at 10:00EDT (14:00GMT). The NAR reported that existing home sales decreased -2.5% to 5.46mln in April. Alongside expectations for modest rebound, we anticipate an increase to around 5.50mln for existing home sales, likely to see further volatility in the months ahead.

[USD] US Preview: Current Account

[USD] The 1Q18 Commerce Department international transactions (current account) report will be released on Wednesday at 08:30EDT (12:30GMT). We expect some net widening in the current account deficit to -$130.0bln, versus the -$128.2bln result that occurred in 4Q17. Alongside firms less focused on shoring up balance sheets as credit conditions gradually improve, we expect that US overseas purchases attributed to private direct investment (and the purchase of private securities) will be outpaced by foreign private direct investment in the US by investors flush with dollars. This will likely be accompanied by overall deterioration in the balance on goods and services. On balance, we expect a wider 4Q17 current account deficit of -$130.0bln.
