By Julia Payne LONDON (Reuters) -Oil prices dumped on Friday to trade at levels not seen since January as the dollar index hit its strongest level in two decades and on demand fears as rising interest rates risked tipping major economics into recession. Brent crude futures fell $3.74, or 4.13%, to $86.72 a barrel by 1313 GMT. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were also down by $3.98, or 4.77%, to $79.51 a barrel. Front-month Brent and WTI contracts were down 5.28% and 6.80% respectively over the past week. Global equities hit a two-year low on Friday while the dollar index reached its highest level in two decades, putting downward pressure on oil. "Weak European PMIs, growth concerns as result of aggressive monetary policy tightening in the US and Europe are weighing on risk assets. Oil prices are not immune to those growth concerns," Giovanni Staunovo, analyst at UBS, said. A downturn in business activity across the euro zone deepened in September, a survey showed, suggesting that a recession is looming as consumers rein in spending to contend with a cost of living crisis. "European equity gauges are ending the week on a negative note amid fears that rate hikes will push major economies into recession," PVM Oil Associates said in a note. Russia launched referendums on Friday aimed at annexing four occupied regions of Ukraine, which Kyiv called an illegal sham that it said included threats to residents if they do not vote. After the U.S. Federal Reserve raised interest rates by a hefty 75 basis points on Wednesday, central banks around the world followed suit with hikes of their own, raising the risk of economic slowdowns. In Britain, meanwhile, the pound fell to a 37-year low and government bonds crashed after the new finance minister announced historic tax cuts and huge increases to borrowing. On the oil supply side, efforts to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal have stalled as Tehran insists on the closure of the U.N. nuclear watchdog's investigations, a senior U.S. State Department official said, easing expectations of a resurgence of Iranian crude oil exports.

By Elizabeth Howcroft LONDON (Reuters) - European stocks fell on Friday and Wall Street was set to open lower as investors braced for a U.S. rate hike next week amid more warning signs pointing to a global economic slowdown. The World Bank's chief economist said on Thursday he was worried about a period of low growth and high inflation in the global economy. The International Monetary Fund said downside risks continue to dominate the economic outlook but it was too early to say if there will be a widespread global recession. Wall Street sold off on Thursday after U.S. economic data gave the Federal Reserve little reason to ease its aggressive rate-hike stance. The downbeat tone continued during Asian trading, with data showing that China's property sector had contracted further last month. In the UK, retail sales fell more than expected, in another sign that the economy is sliding into recession as the cost-of-living crisis squeezes households' disposable spending. At 1032 GMT, the MSCI world equity index, which tracks shares in 47 countries, was down 0.4% on the day and set for its fourth consecutive day of losses. Europe's STOXX 600 was down 1%, set for a weekly decline of 2.3%. London's FTSE 100 was up 0.2% and Germany's DAX was down 1.5% . Wall Street futures were down, with S&P 500 e-minis trading near two-month lows. "We're now seeing data confirm that the economy is indeed slowing down," said Axel Rudolph, market analyst at IG Group. "I expect stocks to head back down to below their March lows. If you are in an environment where you have central banks that aggressively raise rates, historically this has always led to bear markets." Markets were pricing in a 75% chance of a 75-basis-point rate hike and a 25% chance of 100 bps when the Fed meets next Wednesday. The Bank of Japan and Bank of England also meet next week. Joachim Fels, managing director and global economic advisor at PIMCO, said in a note that although he expects a "relatively shallow" recession, "it is unlikely to be followed by a V-shaped recovery because sticky inflation will prevent central banks from easing policy in a meaningful way anytime soon." The U.S. dollar index was up 0.1% at 109.95 , still hovering near a 20-year high, and a touch lower against the yen at 143.23. The yen could hurtle towards three-decade lows before the year-end, according to market analysts and fund managers. The dollar's strength pushed China's offshore yuan past the 7-per-dollar level for the first time in nearly two years. The pound weakened to a new 37-year low against the U.S. dollar. The euro was a touch lower at $0.9976. Germany's two-year bond yields hit a fresh 11-year high after the European Central Bank vice president said an economic slowdown in the euro zone would not be enough to control inflation and the bank will have to keep raising interest rates. Germany's benchmark 10-year bond was up 6 bps on the day at 1.787% - having touched its highest since mid-June in early trading. Oil prices edged higher, but were on track for a weekly drop amid fears of a reduction in demand.

By Ambar Warrick Investing.com-- Most Asian currencies fell on Friday, with China’s yuan slipping past an important psychological level as concerns over rising interest rates and a potential recession dented appetite for regional assets. The yuan slipped 0.2%, crossing the 7 level against the dollar for the first time in over two years, as investors continued to fret over slowing growth in the world’s second-largest economy. Data on Friday showed Chinese house prices marked their worst monthly drop in nearly seven years, falling 1.3% in August. China’s debt-saddled property market accounts for a bulk of its economic growth, and has come under extreme pressure from a cash crunch this year. The weak data offset other readings that showed bigger-than-expected growth in Chinese retail sales and industrial production in August. A series of COVID-related lockdowns ground Chinese economic activity to a halt this year, pressuring the yuan. This spurred several stimulus measures by the government to shore up growth, which in turn further dented the yuan. But several recent strong midpoint fixes for the yuan by the People’s Bank of China suggest that the government is not prepared to let the currency depreciate further. Most other Asian currencies fell on Friday, pressured by growing fears of a global economic recession following warnings by both the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Expectations of a large interest rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve next week also weighed on regional currency markets, as inflation in the country showed few signs of slowing. The dollar index remained pinned near 20-year highs. The Japanese yen rose 0.1% after the government reiterated its commitment to curbing further losses in the currency. But the yen was headed for its fifth consecutive week of losses, hovering near 24-year lows on a widening gulf between local and international interest rates. Japan’s increasing cost of energy imports also weighed on the unit. Most other Asian currencies were also nursing weekly losses against the dollar, as the prospect of higher U.S. interest rates gave little respite to the space.

By Geoffrey Smith Investing.com -- Factory gate prices stayed strong in August, corroborating a picture of unbroken and broadening inflationary pressure in the U.S. economy. The producer price index dipped 0.1% on the month from July, thanks to cheaper gasoline prices - down nearly 13% on the month - reducing freight costs. But less volatile elements of the index rose, pushing the 'core' price index up 0.4%, more than expected. Excluding food, energy and transportation, prices rose 0.2%. The numbers reflect the same trend as those seen in Tuesday's consumer prices report, which also showed headline inflation easing, despite signs of prices broadly rising throughout the economy. Corporate profit margins, which have been a key driver of inflation in the last two years, also stayed broadly solid. The Bureau of Labor Statistics said the index for final demand services rose 0.4% on the month, its fourth straight monthly rise, with 60% of that due to a 0.8% increase in margins. "Like yesterday’s CPI report, today’s PPI report shows that inflationary pressures remain," tweeted Kathy Jones, chief fixed income strategist with Charles Schwab. Nonetheless, there were further signs that the peak in annual inflation may already have passed, with the core PPI rising only 7.3% from a year earlier, down from 7.7% in July. The headline PPI likewise eased to 8.7% from 9.8%. Greg Daco, chief economist with EY, said that underlying price pressures appeared "less concerning." In addition to a drop of nearly 2% in the cost of freight transport by truck. there were also price declines for categories as diverse as hotel accommodation and food and alcohol retailing.

(In Sept 7 story, corrects headline to note biggest pct gain in four weeks, not four-week high) By Carolina Mandl and Chuck Mikolajczak (Reuters) -U.S. stock indexes climbed the most in roughly a month as bond yields eased, with investors shrugging off hawkish remarks made by Federal Reserve officials on Wednesday. The last time the Nasdaq Composite, S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average reached a higher one-day percentage jump was on Aug 10, although investors doubt this is a long-lasting trend. The technology-heavy Nasdaq led gains among the main indexes, snapping a seven-session losing streak. U.S. stocks have sold off sharply since mid-August after hawkish comments from Fed Chair Jerome Powell were compounded by signs of an economic slowdown in Europe and China and aggressive steps by major central banks to tame inflation. Data signaling strength in the U.S. economy has prompted traders to bet on a 75-basis-point interest rate hike by the Fed later this month. Fed fund futures implied investors were pricing in a more than 76% chance of such a move. The 10-year Treasury yield slipped from three-month highs hit earlier in the session, boosting shares of rate-sensitive stocks such as Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) Inc, Microsoft Corp (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN). High-growth companies such as those in the tech sector tend to benefit when yields go down as it means a lower discount rate on their future profits when investors are calculating valuations. Still, investors are looking for more outward signs of how Federal Reserve rate hikes will unfold to tame a surging inflation before its next meeting later this month. "The bond markets behaving a little bit better today which is giving the stock market a little bit of a better feeling, but the big worries are still what the Fed is going to do on Sep 21. So we're seeing a back and forth tug-of-war each day," said Brent Schutte, Chief Investment Officer at Northwestern (NASDAQ:NWE) Mutual Wealth Management Company. Stocks' performance also ignored hawkish comments by Federal Reserve earlier on Wednesday. Cleveland Federal Reserve Bank President Loretta Mester said the high cost of U.S. rental accommodation has not yet fully filtered through to inflation measures, suggesting inflation may still rise further. Meanwhile, Richmond Fed President Thomas Barkin said the U.S. central bank must lift interest rates to a level that restrains economic activity and keep them there until policymakers are "convinced" that inflation is subsiding, while Federal Reserve Vice Chair Lael Brainard added the monetary policy will need to be restrictive "for some time." The main focus will be on Powell's speech on Thursday and U.S. consumer price data next week for clues on the path of monetary policy. The Fed's "Beige Book", a periodic snapshot of the health of the U.S. economy, indicated that price pressures are expected to persist at least through the end of the year. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 435.98 points, or 1.4%, to 31,581.28, the S&P 500 gained 71.68 points, or 1.83%, to 3,979.87 and the Nasdaq Composite added 246.99 points, or 2.14%, to 11,791.90. Ten of the 11 major S&P sectors were trading higher, led by a jump in utilities, reflecting the defensive positioning by investors due to economic uncertainties. The energy index fell 1.16% as oil prices tumbled about 5% on demand worries related to looming recession risks. Brent crude fell below $90 a barrel. Nio (NYSE:NIO) Inc reversed earlier losses and ended the session up 2.16% after the Chinese electric vehicle maker reported a bigger second-quarter adjusted net loss but revenue topped expectations. Coupa Software (NASDAQ:COUP) Inc jumped almost 18% after the payment management software firm beat second-quarter estimates for revenue and profit. Volume on U.S. exchanges was 10.21 billion shares, compared with the 10.43 billion average for the full session over the last 20 trading days. Advancing issues outnumbered declining ones on the NYSE by a 3.07-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq, a 2.60-to-1 ratio favored advancers. The S&P 500 posted 6 new 52-week highs and 16 new lows; the Nasdaq Composite recorded 24 new highs and 231 new lows.

By Selena Li HONG KONG (Reuters) - Asian stocks fell to a two-year low on Wednesday on the back of disappointing Chinese trade numbers, while the dollar surged as U.S. data reinforced expectations for aggressive Federal Reserve rate hikes. The greenback flew past 144 Japanese yen and was up more than 1% at one point to 144.38 yen, while the Chinese yuan extended a slide, nearing the psychologically important 7 per dollar level. European futures were last down 1% and FTSE futures fell 0.8%. S&P 500 futures dropped 0.2%. China's exports growth slowed in August, as surging inflation crimped overseas demand while lockdowns sapped local consumption and kept a lid on imports. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan fell to its lowest since mid-2020 and was last down 1.5%. Japan's Nikkei fell 0.8%. The dollar's gains came as stronger-than-expected services data overnight reinforced the case for rate hikes, with markets now pricing in a 75% chance that the Fed raises rates by 75 basis points this month. "The good news for the real economy has now become bad news for the market - both for the bond and the stock market," said Redmond Wong, China market strategist at Saxo Capital Markets in Hong Kong. "Investors we talked to ... have lost quite a bit of confidence." Wall Street indexes fell on Tuesday with the Nasdaq losing for a seventh straight session, its longest streak since 2016. [.N] Fixed-income markets are also buckling and benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury yields touched 3.365% in Tokyo trade, the highest level since mid June. Data overnight showed the U.S. services industry picking up in August for the second straight month amid stronger orders growth and employment. YEN CRUSHED The Japanese yen has now lost more than 2.5% on the dollar over two sessions, putting some investors on edge about the prospect of official intervention to arrest the slide. Japanese officials have toughened their verbal warnings, with the top government spokesman saying Japan wants to act if "rapid, one-sided" moves seen recently continue. "One of the things that we're telling our clients is to cover their yen loans now," said Davis Hall, head of capital markets at Indosuez Wealth Management Asia. "If ever they talk intervention (dollar/yen) could revert swiftly lower." The euro was a whisker above a two-decade low at $0.9893, with investors waiting for Wednesday's European Central Bank meeting. Sterling looked fragile at $1.1479 with traders looking ahead to parliamentary testimony from the Bank of England governor. Elsewhere, Australia's S&P/ASX 200 index lost 1.4%, even as data on Wednesday showed Australia's economic growth picked up in the second quarter, offering hope that activity could weather sharply higher interest rates and cost-of-living pressures. Shares in Hong Kong fell 1.7%, dragging the index back to where it sat in March before official promises of major economic support. It was weighed down by the main tech index, which extended losses to 2.4% on fresh regulatory warnings. Overnight, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) cautioned that U.S. accounting firms risked breaching U.S. rules if they agreed to lead audits of New York-listed Chinese and Hong Kong companies looking to avoid potential trading bans. In energy markets, crude oil prices stumbled on weaker consumption forecasts. U.S. crude fell 1.7% to $85.4 per barrel and Brent was at $91.7, down 1.3% on the day. Spot gold fell 0.5% to $1,693 an ounce.

By Rae Wee and Alun John SINGAPORE/LONDON (Reuters) - The rate-sensitive Japanese yen continued tumbling on Tuesday, falling past 142 per dollar, while sterling and the euro tried, and in the euro's case failed, to recover from multi-year lows against the dollar hit the day before. The dollar climbed 1.07% on the yen to 142.1, a fresh 24-year high. The dollar is up 23% against the Japanese currency so far this year. "The FX market is re-focusing on rate hikes by major central banks and the Bank of Japan (BOJ) stood out at the Jackson Hole symposium as the only one that remained resolute about keeping monetary policy accommodative," said HSBC analysts in a note. "USD-JPY’s correlation with US yields has thus rebounded to near their strongest year-to-date level," they wrote in the note, titled, "JPY: staring into the abyss." The bank changed its forecast for the pair to 144 at the end of the third quarter up from 140 previously. The U.S. benchmark 10-year yield was last at 3.2557%, up from Friday's close of 3.191%. U.S. markets were closed on Monday for a holiday. [US/] In contrast, the yield on 10-year Japanese government bonds was 0.24%, due to the BOJ's yield curve control policy. Elsewhere, the pound and the euro both gained over 0.6% against the dollar in morning trading in Europe, though while sterling managed to cling onto some of this, up 0.35% at $1.1564, the euro retreated to trade flat on the day at $0.99205, only just above its 20-year intraday low hit the day before. "That governments are working on price caps, support for the consumer, and really trying to get a grip on the energy crisis helps set a floor under those two pairs," said Samy Chaar, chief economist Lombard Odier. The pound was also performing well on the crosses, gaining 1.44% against the yen. Britain's incoming Prime Minister Liz Truss is considering a freeze on household energy bills to try to avert a winter cost-of-living crisis for millions of households, Reuters reported on Monday. European Union ministers will meet on Sept. 9 to discuss urgent bloc-wide measures to respond to a surge in gas and power prices that is hammering Europe's industry and hiking household bills, after Russia curbed gas deliveries to the bloc. The Australian dollar slid to a seven-week low after the Reserve Bank of Australia raised its cash rate by 50 basis points, but signalled it was not on a preset path for future rate hikes. The Aussie was last 0.43% lower at $0.6768. In China, the authorities' efforts to slow the yuan's recent depreciation were proving unsuccessful, with the yuan slipping to a fresh two-year low of 6.9784 in offshore trade. China's central bank late on Monday cut the foreign exchange reserve requirement ratio (RRR), freeing up dollars for banks to sell. Two dealers also told Reuters South Korean authorities were suspected of selling dollars near the end of the onshore trading session on Tuesday in an apparent intervention to curb the won's weakness.

By Balazs Koranyi FRANKFURT (Reuters) - It was meant to be Europe's stellar year. A post-pandemic spending euphoria, supported by copious government spending was set to drive the economy and help fatigued households regain a sense of normality after two dreadful years. But all that changed on Feb. 24 with Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Normality is gone and crisis has become permanent. A recession is now almost certain, inflation is nearing double digits and a winter with looming energy shortages is fast approaching. Though bleak, this outlook is still likely to get worse before any significant improvement well into 2023. "Crisis is the new normal," says the Alexandre Bompard, the Chief Executive of retailer Carrefour (EPA:CARR). "What we have been used to in the last decades - low inflation, international trade - it's over," he told investors. The change is dramatic. A year ago most forecasters predicted 2022 economic growth near 5%. Now a winter recession is becoming the base case. " onerror="this.style.display='none'" class="msg-img" /> Households and businesses are both suffering as the fallout of the war - high food and energy prices - is now exacerbated by a devastating drought and low river levels that constrain transport. At 9%, inflation in the euro area is at levels not seen in a half a century and it is sapping purchasing power with spare cash used up on petrol, natural gas and staple food. Retail sales are already plunging, months before the heating season starts and shoppers are scaling down their buys. In June, retail sales volumes were down nearly 4% from a year earlier, led by a 9% drop recorded in Germany. Consumers turn to discount chains and give up high end products, switching to discount brands. They have also started to skip certain purchases. "Life is becoming more expensive and consumers are reluctant to consume," Robert Gentz, the co-CEO of German retailer Zalando, told reporters. Businesses have so far coped well thanks to superb pricing power due to persistent supply constraints. But energy intensive sectors are already suffering. Close to half of Europe's aluminium and zinc smelting capacity is already offline while much of fertilizer production, which relies on natural gas, has been shut. Tourism has been the rare bright spot with people looking to spend some of accumulated savings and enjoy their first care-free summer since 2019. But even the travel sector is hamstrung by capacity and labour shortages as workers laid off during the pandemic were reluctant to return. Key airports, such as Frankfurt and London Heathrow were forced to cap flights simply because they lacked the staff to process passengers. At Amsterdam's Schiphol, waiting times could stretch to four or five hours this summer. Airlines also could not cope. Germany's Lufthansa had to publish an apology to customers for the chaos, admitting that it was unlikely to ease anytime soon. RECESSION LOOMS That pain is likely to intensify, especially if Russia cuts gas exports further. "The gas shock today is much greater; it is almost double the shock that we had back in the 70s with oil," Caroline Bain at Capital Economics said. "We've seen a 10 to 11 fold increase in the spot price of natural gas in Europe over the last two years." While the EU has unveiled plans to accelerate its transition to renewable energy and wean the bloc off Russian gas by 2027, making it more resilient in the long run, supply shortages are forcing it seek a 15% cut in gas consumption this year. But energy independence comes at a cost. For ordinary people it will mean colder homes and offices in the short run. Germany for instance wants public spaces heated only to 19 degrees Celsius this winter compared with around 22 degrees previously. Further out, it will mean higher energy costs and thus inflation as the bloc must give up its biggest and cheapest energy supplies. " onerror="this.style.display='none'" class="msg-img" /> For businesses, it will mean lower production, which eats further into growth, particularly in industry. Wholesale gas prices in Germany, the bloc's biggest economy, are up five-fold in a year but consumers are protected by long term contracts, so the impact so far has been far smaller. Still, they will have to pay a government mandated levy and once contracts roll over, prices will soar, suggesting the impact will just come with a delay, putting persistent upward pressure on inflation. That is why many if not most economists see Germany and Italy, Europe's no. 1 and no. 4 economies with heavy reliance on gas, entering a recession soon. While a recession in the United States is also likely, its origin will be quite different. SILVER LINING Struggling with a red-hot labour market and rapid wage growth, the U.S. Federal Reserve has been raising interest rates quickly and has made clear it is willing to risk even a recession to tame price growth. By contrast, the European Central Bank has only increased rates once, back to zero, and will move only cautiously, mindful that raising the borrowing cost of highly indebted euro zone nations, such as Italy, Spain and Greece could fuel worries about the their ability to keep paying their debts. But Europe will go into a recession with some strengths. Employment is record high and firms have struggled with growing labour scarcity for years. This suggests that companies will be keen to hang onto workers, especially since they head for the downturn with relatively healthy margins. This could then sustain purchasing power, pointing to a relatively shallow recession with only a modest uptick in what is now a record low jobless rate. "We see continued acute shortages of labour, historically low unemployment and a high number of vacancies," ECB board member Isabel Schnabel told Reuters earlier. "This probably implies that even if we enter a downturn, firms may be quite reluctant to shed workers on a broad scale."

By Liangping Gao and Kevin Yao BEIJING (Reuters) -China's factory-gate inflation eased to a 17-month low in July, defying global cost pressures as slower domestic construction weighed on raw material demand, although consumer price gains hit a two-year high as pork supplies tightened. The producer price index (PPI) rose 4.2% year-on-year, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said on Wednesday, after a 6.1% uptick in June and missing analyst forecasts for a 4.8% increase. China's producer price growth has slowed from a 26-year high hit in October last year, giving policymakers some leeway to stimulate the flagging economy even as central banks elsewhere scramble to hose down rampant inflation with aggressive interest rate hikes. While China's relatively benign inflation has largely been due to weak domestic demand, a moderation in global price pressures, such as falling oil prices, also contributed to July's slowdown. "Factory gate inflation will remain on a downward trajectory throughout the rest of the year amid a further drop in commodity prices, easing supply bottlenecks and a higher base for comparison," Zichun Huang, China Economist at Capital Economics, said in a research note. In a sign of the slowing momentum, PPI fell 1.3% month-on-month, its first monthly decline since January, with the biggest falls in the price of metals and petrochemicals. In annual terms, coal mining and washing industry prices rose 20.7%, slowing 10.7 percentage points from June, while the oil and gas extraction industry jumped 43.9%, down 10.5 percentage points, according to a separate statement from NBS. Input prices slumped in July, China's official purchasing managers' index showed last week, due to a decline in energy and raw material costs and pointing to an eventual fall in producer prices. The world's second-biggest economy has slowed considerably and narrowly escaped a contraction in the June quarter, weighed by strict COVID-19 controls, a distressed property market and cautious consumer sentiment. The consumer price index (CPI) increased 2.7% from a year earlier, the fastest pace since July 2020 but missing forecasts for a 2.9% gain. The main driver of consumer prices is food inflation, which rose 6.3% year-on-year, speeding up from a 2.9% uptick in June. Driving the broader food surge were pork prices, which shot up 20.2% year-on-year, reversing a 6.0% decline in June as production slowed. However, core CPI, which excludes volatile energy and food prices and is a better gauge of underlying inflation, remained soft, rising just 0.8%, slower than the 1.0% rise in June. CONSTRAINED DOVES While the People's Bank of China (PBOC) is expected to keep monetary settings loose amid sluggish growth, there are limits on how much the bank can ease policy due to worries about capital outflows, as the U.S. Federal Reserve raises interest rates aggressively. The PBOC will therefore likely rely on more targeted easing to support the recovery, even as consumer inflation tests China's 3% tolerance threshold. That means the prospect of a near-term across-the-board interest rate cut is low, given existing global inflationary pressures and interest rate hikes in other major economies, said Bruce Pang, a chief economist at Jones Lang Lasalle (NYSE:JLL). "In all, CPI inflation remains below the PBOC's target of around 3%, providing it the policy space to remain accommodative," Erin Xin, economist at HSBC, said in a note. "With continued uncertainty from COVID-19 clusters as well as weak sentiment in the property market, there is still a need for the PBOC to stay accommodative."

By Julie Zhu HONG KONG (Reuters) - Asian shares eked out modest gains on Tuesday as buyers were held back by persistent global cost pressures, with investors turning their focus this week to U.S. inflation data and the prospects for further aggressive Federal Reserve rate hikes. The unexpectedly strong U.S. jobs data on Friday have raised the stakes for the July U.S. consumer prices report due on Wednesday, especially for the Fed's policy outlook. "U.S. stocks were struggling to hold on to gains, as the focus moves from a robust U.S. labour market to the U.S. CPI data out later this week," ANZ analysts said in a note. "The priority of reducing inflation to underpin the expansion in domestic demand and sustainable jobs growth will ring loud and clear from the 25-27 August Jackson Hole symposium." European markets were set for a lower open with the pan-region Euro Stoxx 50 futures down 0.16%, German DAX futures dropping 0.16% and FTSE futures falling 0.12%. U.S. stock futures, the S&P 500 e-minis, rose 0.22%. "Moves in major financial markets continue to reflect fears of a global recession. European equity futures declined. Oil prices dipped modestly in the Asia session and remain well below the highs in early June," said CBA analysts. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.3%. The index is up 0.5% so far this month. Japan's Nikkei slid 0.95%, hit by weak quarterly earnings by heavyweights and lowered expectations for the video game market, while Australian shares were up 0.06%. China stocks edged up led by energy and renewable energy stocks. But the gains were capped as COVID-19 outbreaks and tensions with the United States, in the wake of U.S. House of Representative Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan last week, dragged on sentiment. China's blue-chip CSI300 index was up 0.16%. Hong Kong's Hang Seng index advanced 0.4%. On Monday, Wall Street closed mostly flat after blockbuster jobs data last week reinforced expectations the Federal Reserve will crack down on inflation, while a revenue warning from chipmaker Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) reminded investors of a slowing U.S. economy. Investors now await consumer price data on Wednesday to gauge whether the Fed might ease a bit in its inflation fight and provide a better footing for the economy to grow. There were some encouraging signs for the Fed on the prices front, with a New York Fed survey on Monday showing consumers' inflation expectations fell sharply in July. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.09% while the S&P 500 lost 0.12% and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 0.1%. Bonds also got a safe-haven bid due to unease over Beijing's sabre rattling against Taiwan amid days of Chinese military exercises around the island. The yield on benchmark 10-year Treasury notes rose to 2.7608% compared with its U.S. close of 2.763% on Monday. The two-year yield, which rises with traders' expectations of higher Fed fund rates, touched 3.2056% compared with a U.S. close of 3.216%. The dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of currencies of other major trading partners, was up at 106.35. Oil prices continued their recent retreat after suffering the worst week since April on worries about stalling global demand as central banks keep tightening. O/R U.S. crude dipped 0.11% to $90.66 a barrel. Brent crude fell to $96.51 per barrel. The rise in the dollar was a setback for gold, though it had managed to bounce from the lows hit on Friday and was traded at $1,785.67 per ounce. [GOL/]

Greetings , After careful review of everything , we have morphed the strategies again . In reality , nothing bad happened , meaning , I have not lost a single trade . I did make a mistake do to over trading , that cost us 15% of our account . We should pay for that . We also experienced a stop loss hit , the stop loss went to -750 points , while our was set to 700 points for closing . This lets us know that what we want is a less sensitive system . We have fixed both the scalping account and the normal entry account with stop losses at 1,000 points away from entry . This will remove all the sensitivity . We are looking at starting the week with both strategies again , since they both , now have room for error , something we did not have before . I will not be making another mistake again , as I simply thought that our wining streak was great , and deserved a chance at standard market entry . We had no luck , at playing fair , so we will proceed at playing precise until our new account reaches 50% profits . Lastly , both the scalper and the main account , combined , if both stop losses were to hit in one day . We would only loose 16% of the initial amount . This means that we have , once again , improved the system . We do not treat the scalping account and main account separately , as they both actually represent one account , as the entries may happen right near each other , and have been set to operate in a form of pass and feed .

Greetings , The 100PS won 30 times and lost 2 times . One of the losses was my mistake , and the other lost was what seems to be a broker hunt for our stop loss . Together both of this losses brought our account back to even , at -5% profits . The scalper system won 5 straight times , 0 losses . So it happens that It takes some time to find scalps , and we may even miss them some times . After a day of no scalp , we took the scalper profits and went on a long call . The long call lost and cost us 34% of our scalping capital . The scalping capital represents 1/5 of the 100PS capital . So it was a reasonable long call . All together between the long loss and the long call . We lost 10% of the whole amount . From results , we experienced 20% of profits for 100PS and 25% from scalper . Because our stop loss hit two times , even though the mistaken entry was a good call . We decide to make the system safer . Starting today and Monday we will be using a new system . The new system is called 200PS . This system has an 1,800 point stop loss . With this stop loss and the same two entries that lost in place . We would have won all the entries and still be in positive standing . Unfortunately , USDJPY , is not in normal market conditions , so it blew our stop losses many times . We don't know why the market blows standard conditions , but we have to cover the doubt as well . Going forward we will be trading more relaxed , as with the new system there is even more time to make strong decisions . The new system is better . With 200PS , I may select to close all trades within 8 hours , 12 hours , or let them run for 24 to 48 hours . There is a lot of room for fluctuation . Even though we can use the 100PS for pairs that are performing within normal behavior , reality is , that I don't like to be in the office over measuring things . Is good to use a universal design , that covers all the pairs and passes the environment less stress . 200PS also allows the ability to run into profits , removing the 100 point minimum and turning it to a minimum profit line of 100 to 400 points , or greater , depending on pair performance . Look forward to seeing our next report on the following Friday .

A roll over is when you buy a contract of the same asset name, but move either the strike or expiration or both at lesser cost than the original trade because you've closed the other one. This is something we use specifically for taking profits and catching continuation with very little risk on the table
