IMF's "World Economic Outlook" report and UK GDP attract market attention

The report released by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Tuesday October 9th 2018 and the upcoming Gross Domestic Product (GDP) data release in the United Kingdom (UK) tomorrow are topics of conversation among financial analysts today.  The IMF’s “World Economic Outlook” report which is published twice a year in April and October said that the Fund will be cutting its global growth forecast because of the continued clash between the United States and China. 

“World Economic Outlook” report by IMF

The IMF’s analysts noted that the global economy is now expected to grow by 3.7% during this year and by another 3.7% during 2019. The new estimates are 0.2% lower than the forecast published in April 2018. The reason behind the downgrade as the IMF’s economists suggested is the trade tension between the US, China and other important trading partners. 

Maurice Obstfeld, the IMF’s chief economist, said in a speech that earlier growth projections appeared to be too optimistic as trade tensions have become more intense in the last few weeks. “The impacts of trade policy and uncertainty are becoming evident at the macroeconomic level, while anecdotal evidence accumulates on the resulting harm to companies. Trade policy reflects politics, and politics remain unsettled in several countries, posing further risks,” he said. Maurice Obstfeld added that “two major regional trade arrangements are in flux — North Atlantic Financial Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the European Union (EU). US tariffs on China, and more broadly on auto and auto part imports, may disrupt established supply chains, especially if met by retaliation.” 

In its report, the IMF suggested that the two largest economies involved in the trade war, China and the US, are expected to grow slower than initially thought. More specific the US economy is likely to grow by 2.9% in 2018 and 2.5% in 2019, while the Chinese economy is anticipated to achieve a 6.6% rate of growth during 2018 which will slow to 6.2% in 2019. Apart from the trade tensions, the “World Economic Outlook” report focused on emerging markets that have come under strong pressure in recent months. As noted in the IMF’s report economies such as Turkey’s and Argentina’s are experiencing massive capital outflows as investors prefer to take advantage of the rising interest rates back in the US. 

UK GDP growth in August 2018

In the UK the Office for National Statistics (ONS) is expected to publish a series of financial data regarding the country’s economy. The report is going to include the UK’s GDP rate of growth as it was recorded by the ONS services during August 2018. Economists suggest that the UK’s GDP grew by 0.1% on a month-to-month basis, slightly lower than the 0.3% rate recorded in July 2018. 

Financial analysts will also focus on data regarding the industrial and manufacturing production in the UK in August 2018. Industrial production is likely to come in at 0.1% on a monthly basis, matching July’s 2018 reading. Manufacturing production is expected to have grown by 1.1% on an annualised basis, matching the rate of growth recorded in July 2018. 

In other news, the IMF in its latest “World Economic Outlook” argued that the UK’s government has the flexibility to boost public spending as the country is preparing for its exit from the EU. IMF’s analysts suggest that “the fiscal targets—which envisage the cyclically adjusted public sector deficit falling below 2% of GDP and public debt beginning to decline by 2020/2021—provide an anchor for medium-term objectives while allowing for flexibility in the short term. The pace of fiscal consolidation can be eased if risks materialize and growth slows sharply.”

Economists focus on US NFPs and average earnings

One of the most important moments in the month regarding the financial world is coming on Friday October 5th 2018. On that day the US Department of Labour will publish the September Nonfarm Payrolls (NFPs), the average weekly earnings and the unemployment rate in the country. Economists will pay special attention as the fourth quarter of 2018 (Q4 2018) kicked in and the US Federal Reserve board seems to be preparing to raise borrowing costs in December 2018. 

US NFPs in September 2018

These financial data reports are important for global market analysts as the US is one of the largest economies in the world. Nonfarm Payrolls data is released by the US Department of Labour and represents the number of new jobs created during the previous month, in all non-agricultural business. New farm employees are excluded due to the seasonality of their profession. NFPs are regarded as an important indicator of economic conditions because they move closely in line with the overall economy.

Economists anticipate a drop in the NFPs figure. More specifically, they expect the data to show that 185,000 new jobs were added to the US economy during September 2018. In August 2018, according to data published on September 7th 2018, NFPs impressed the markets coming in at 201,000. The figure beat market expectations of 191,000, following July’s 2018 downwardly revised 159,000. The reading was the highest recorded since February 2018. The accompanying report for August 2018, published by the US Department of Labour, mentioned that employment had grown in the professional and business services, healthcare and wholesale trade sectors.

Analysts at Wells Fargo, one of the largest banks in the US, noted that they raised their estimates for the NFPs figure from 185,000 to 210,000. They stress that the new forecast is based on the fact that the ISM non-manufacturing index hit a 21-year high in September 2018, according to data published on Wednesday October 2nd  2018. “The ISM non-manufacturing index hit a 21-year high in September, leaping 3.1 points to 61.6. Current activity, new orders and supplier deliveries all increased. Backlogs continue to rise, helped in part by elevated levels of export orders. The employment index jumped to an all-time high of 62.4. We have subsequently raised our September nonfarm payroll forecast to 210,000 from 185,000. Respondents noted, however, that labor shortages are beginning to weigh on growth and earnings,” was written in their report published on Thursday October 3rd 2018. 

US Average Hourly Earnings

The US Department of Labour is going to release data regarding the average hourly earnings in September 2018. Economists forecast that the average hourly earnings increased by 2.8%, on an annualised basis. If the forecast is confirmed, the figure will be 0.1% lower than August’s 2018 reading. On a month-to-month basis, average hourly earnings are expected to have risen by 0.3%, a bit lower than the August’s 2018 figure. Average hourly earnings are important because the US Federal Reserve takes them into consideration when the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) convenes to decide on interest rates.

US Unemployment Rate

The unemployment rate in the US is the last major data release on October 5th 2018. Economists are suggesting that the unemployment rate will likely come in at 3.8% in September 2018, 0.1% lower than the figure recorded in August 2018.
