[USD] US Bond Strategy for November 19

[USD] Treasuries surged higher to open the week on Monday following reports of Chinese pessimism regarding its trade deal with the US due to the Trump administration's unwillingness to rollback previously implemented tariffs. The announcement of this news saw the 10Yr Note yield shed roughly -4bps towards 1.82%, before seeing additional downward pressure over the remainder of the morning.

[USD] Preview: Housing Starts/Building Permits

[USD] The October US Commerce Department housing starts and building permits report will be released Tuesday at 08:30EST (13:30GMT). We expect an overall increase in the housing starts measure to 1325k in October, versus the 1256k result that occurred in September. Meanwhile, we anticipate building permits will decrease to around 1370k in October, versus the 1387k result seen in September. On balance, weakness in single-family housing starts, coupled with more volatile results seen in multi-family starts, should keep the overall measure at historically weak levels, despite budding improvement.

[IDR] Another 25bps rate cut likely this Thursday

[IDR] BI's policy decision is due on Thursday and we are expecting it to continue unwinding last year's tightening that totalled 175bps by delivering another 25bps rate cut, taking the policy rate to 4.75%. The latest CPI data as well as IDR appreciation allow the central bank to continue easing without worrying about aggravating inflation or IDR stability. Recall that headline inflation eased to 3.1% y/y in October from 3.4% y/y in September while the IDR has sustained its strengthening bias against the USD (appreciating by over 2% against the USD in the year-to-date).
