HIGH IMPACT ITEMS: DE- factory Orders, US- Employment, Personal Income, PCE Deflator,
- Neither the Bank of England nor the European Central Bank interest rate decisions (no changes) had any impact on the forex markets Thursday. However, the ECB press conference gave the EURUSD a boost as President Draghi expressed some inflationary concerns and dismissed any possibility the ECB might intervene in forex markets to push the EURUSD lower. Draghi reiterated that forex policy is not an ECB mandate.
- Japan has announced a major stimulus plan designed to offset an increase in the Japanese consumption tax. Large scale Japanese stimulus programs have a long history of not being as large as they appear.
- Friday sees key employment data from the United States and Canada. On Wednesday, the volatile ADP private jobs data came in at a better than expected +215K for Private Payrolls. While strong, the data do not ensure a NFP above +200K, but it was a positive indicator. On the other hand, the ISM Services PMI was weaker than expected. That reading could point to a softer NFP report.
- Otherwise, rising inventories saw a strong upward revision in 3Q13 U.S. GDP to an annualized +3.60%. It is always tricky to predict the future impact of rising inventories. Weekly jobless Claims fell to below the 300K level in the latest week. Those data are difficult to assess as well.
