The euro depreciated vis-à-vis the U.S. dollar today as the single currency tested bids around the US$ 1.2330 level and was capped around the $1.2395 level.  The common currency moved lower as traders were unimpressed with the lack of commitment to reducing global deficits at the Group of Twenty meeting in Toronto this weekend.  Spanish and Italian debt declined today on account of the lack of a global agreement on deleveraging global output from massive fiscal spending programs and new debt issuance.  G-20 officials reported banks needs to raise capital “significantly” and added countries will need to phase in new rules by the end of 2012.  German Chancellor Merkel said the G-20 announcement “is a success (because) industrialized countries as a group accepted this.”  The G-20 noted their “goal” is to reduce deficits in half by 2013.  Bank for International Settlements General Manager Caruana indicated banks’ stress tests may “point to the need to take action” and added it will then “be necessary to take action.”  BIS Chairman Noyer noted “The main task of the public sector is to now design policies that minimize the risks of future financial crisis and promote sustainable growth.  In this regard, international cooperation will continue to be essential.”  Data released in the eurozone today saw May M3 money supply growth decline 0.2% y/y.  Provisional June consumer price inflation data for several German states moderated while the national June CPI figures came in at +0.1% m/m and +0.9% y/y.  On a harmonized basis, CPI was was up 0.0% m/m and 0.8% y/y.  French June consumer confidence data will be released tomorrow.  In U.S. news, data released today saw the May Chicago Fed national activity index move lower to 0.21.  Also, May personal income ticked lower to +0.4% while May personal spending moved higher to +0.2%.  Additionally, the May PCE deflator ticked lower to +1.9% and May core PCE was up 0.2% m/m and 1.3% y/y.  Some traders believe the disinflationary pressures in the U.S. economy could worsen and lead to the Fed “print money.”  The Obama administration’s plan to overhaul financial laws was set back today at least temporarily following the death of Senator Byrd.  Euro offers are cited around the US$ 1.2570 level.

But currently, we can work without having to hurry.”  Swiss National Bank is expected to intervene considerably less in the coming months after amassing a very large portfolio of euro reserves to prevent the franc from appreciating too much.  U.S. dollar offers are cited around the CHF 1.1470 level.  The euro depreciated vis-à-vis the Swiss franc as the single currency tested bids around the CHF 1.3355 level while the British pound moved lower vis-à-vis the Swiss franc and tested bids around the CHF 1.6295 level.
