Forex Market Commentary and Analysis (14 July 2010)

The euro depreciated vis-à-vis the U.S. dollar today as the single currency tested bids around the US$ 1.2680 level and was capped around the $1.2735 level.  Data released in the U.S. today saw MBA mortgage applications reverse course and decline 2.9%, underscoring the lack of strength in the U.S. housing market.  Also, the June import price index was off 1.3% m/m and up 4.5% y/y while June headline advance retal sales were off 0.5%, better than the revised prior print of -1.1%.  Additionally, the ex-autos retail sales component was off 0.1%, as expected, and May business inventories weakened to +0.1% from the prior reading of +0.4%.  The big news in the U.S. today involved the release of the Federal Open Market Committee meeting’s minutes from the most recent FOMC meeting.  Fed officials reported they would have to “consider whether further policy stimulus might become appropriate if the outlook were to worsen appreciably.”  The Fed’s risk to its economic outlook “shifted to the downside” and most Fed officials noted they preferred to defer asset sales for some time.  Some Fed policymakers cited “some risks of deflation” while others suggested “inflation was unlikely to fall appreciably further given stability of expectations.”  The economic outlook was noted to have “softened somewhat” and Fed officials also revised their economic forecasts.  GDP growth projections were reduced, unemployment projections were raised, and inflation expectations were lowered.  The Fed now sees 2010 real GDP growth between 3.0% to 3.5%, now sees the 2010 unemployment rate between 9.2% to 9.5%, and now sees the 2010 PCE price index between 1.0% and 1.1%.  In eurozone news, data released in the eurozone today saw EMU-16 June consumer price inflation up 0.0% m/m and 1.4% y/y, as expected, while the core rate edged higher to 0.9% y/y, also as expected.  Other data released today saw May industrial production up 0.9% m/m and 9.4% y/y, cooler-than-expected.  Dealers eagerly await the results of stress tests on 91 European banks on 23 July.  Euro offers are cited around the US$ 1.2830 level. 


¥/ CNY

The yen appreciated vis-à-vis the U.S. dollar today as the greenback tested bids around the ¥88.25 level and was capped around the ¥89.10 level.  Bank of Japan is expected to keep its overnight call rate target unchanged at 0.10% when its interest rate announcement is made tonight. The central bank may also raise its forecast for real economic growth in fiscal year 2010 to above 2% on account of stronger-than-expected increases in exports and production.  Some economists are predicting the central bank may lift its forecast to as much as 2.5%.  Traders are closely monitoring the newest political party in Japan, the “Your Party,” to see how it interacts with the ruling Democratic Party of Japan that recently lost an upper house election.  The new party is seeking to revise the Bank of Japan law so the central bank can target an inflation rate of 2% within two to three years.  The International Monetary Fund called on Japan to cap its public debt and said the yen is “broadly in line” with its long-term equilibrium value.  The IMF also pressed the central bank for additional monetary easing.  Some dealers believe the BoJ may be forced to purchase additional quantities of Japanese government bonds, a policy that some policymakers will resist.  Data released in Japan yesterday saw May industrial production up 0.1% m/m and 20.4% y/y with May capacity utilization up 0.8% m/m.  Also, June consumer confidence improved to 43.6 from the prior print of 42.7.  The Nikkei 225 stock index climbed 2.71% to close at ¥9,795.24.  U.S. dollar bids are cited around the ¥86.29 level.   The euro moved lower vis-à-vis the yen as the single currency tested offers around the ¥112.05 level and was capped around the ¥113.25 level.  The British pound moved higher vis-à-vis the yen as sterling tested offers around the ¥135.75 level while the Swiss franc moved lower vis-à-vis the yen and tested bids around the ¥83.45 level. In Chinese news, the U.S. dollar appreciated vis-à-vis the Chinese yuan as the greenback closed at CNY 6.7748 in the over-the-counter market, up from CNY 6.7725.   Data to be released in China tonight night include Q2 GDP growth, June producer prices, June consumer prices, June retail sales, and June industrial production.  The economy is expected to have expanded an annualized 10.5% in the second quarter.
