- Equities mostly fell in the Far East earlier as they followed the Wednesday U.S. lead. European bourses ended mixed. U.S. equities are up.

The heat map color scheme of interest rates reflects yields. This aligns all the colors in the chart to reflect risk-on (green) and risk-off(red).
HIGH IMPACT NEWS ITEMS: JP- CPI, DE- Retail Sales, CH- KOF Survey, CA- GDP. US- Personal Income, PCE deflator, Chicago PMI, University of Michigan
- U.S.1Q14 GDP was a disappointment, as it was revised down by more than anticipated. The focus now turns to the current quarter, where a strong rebound is being priced in.. Weekly Jobless Claims improved by more than expected. However, Pending Homes Sales fell short of expectations. That signals upcoming poor Existing Homes data.
- Japanese April Retail Sales fell by a greater than expected after a significant hike in the retail Sales price. We will be monitoring activity in coming months for any lasting impact on the economy.
- The major focus now is the ECB meeting next Thursday. Forward guidance from ECB confirms that some sort of easing by the central bank is in store, but some worry that will be forthcoming from the central bank is a reduction in interest rates. The concern of many is that a slight reduction in near-zero interest rates will only have a psychological impact.
- U.S. data calendar for Thursday is active. See the FOREX FORUM. for actual data, selected charts, etc.) and comments from experienced traders to events as they happen.
