    U.S. government 10-year yield dips below 100-day moving average amid trade jitters

    U.S. government bonds rallied Tuesday as President Donald Trump threatened to impose tariffs on some $450 billion in Chinese goods, ramping up a trade conflict between the world’s largest superpowers and sending investors rushing to assets perceived as safe. Against that backdrop, risk assets came under pressure while bond prices rose, driving yields lower. The 10-year Treasury note yield (XTUP:TMUBMUSD10Y=X) fell 3.3 basis points to 2.893%, slipping briefly below the 100-day moving average at 2.878%, their intersection has only occurred twice in the last nine months.

    Why the Yen Depreciated against the Dollar

    The Japanese yen (FXY) closed the week at 110.67—compared to the US dollar (UUP) for the week ending June 15. A hawkish FOMC statement and the Bank of Japan’s uneventful policy meeting caused the yen to depreciate. The Bank of Japan chose to leave its ultra-loose monetary policy unchanged and presented a gloomy view of the economy at its May monetary policy meeting, which led to more losses for the Japanese currency.

    Japan’s Central Bank Should Face Up to Zero-Price Growth, Ex-Official Says

    The Bank of Japan should accept it is making no headway in its efforts to spur 2 percent inflation and start normalizing policy, according to Tokyo University professor Tsutomu Watanabe, a former BOJ official and long-time advocate of the price goal. "The last five years have confirmed that the policy hasn’t had any effect," on prices, Watanabe said in an interview earlier this month, referring to the central bank’s aggressive easing measures aimed at stoking inflation. Watanabe’s comments come amid a recent softening of inflation that has prompted some economists to lower their price projections for the year and fueled speculation that the central bank will also have to lower its forecasts again next month.

    Look out for a June swoon coming for tech stocks

    The winds of trade wars are blowing hard this morning ... because investors need one more big thing to deal with at the end of a hard-core week, right? The last four days saw Trump buddy up to North Korea and some pretty hawkish action out of two major central banks, but aside from tech stocks, U.S. equities never got off the ground. “Perhaps Trump feels that the strength of the U.S. economy and recent success in Singapore gives him the breathing room to make a sacrifice on the economy and jobs in an attempt put additional pressure on other countries,” says Craig Erlam, senior market analyst at OANDA, in a note.
