Market Conditions:
Holidays in Canada and the U.S., kept trading at a low level after the near universal release of Mfg PMI data. Generally the data were disappointing. Markets are in a mixed RISK posture. This week features an ECB meeting and U.S. jobs data.The EURUSD is opening the week steady.

  • Yields in prime Eurozone fixed income markets are mixed. The 10-yr bund is 0.884%  -0.3bp. Peripheral bond yields are lower.
  • The U.K. 10-yr gilt  yield is 2.380%  +2.0bp. I see a +25bp BOE rate hike in February 2015, subject to future data.
  • U.S.10-yr yield is 2.343%, +0.0bp.. The psychological pivot is 2.40%.
  • Far East equities closed mostly higher. Bourses in Europe are ending mixed. U.S. share markets are closed.

    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).

This week may set the tone for the EUR for this month - more sanctions against Russia will probably result in a gas shortage this winter (or worse) - ECB unlikely to make any move despite economic slowing - NATO meeting may be a bit more contentious than usual (spending debate?)

August 2014 Manufacturing PMI
GVI Forex Jay Meisler 10:14 GMT 09/01/2014  - My Profile
Monday 1 September 2014
Market focus will primarily be on political developments and key events later in the week including the ECB meeting and US August payrolls. However, today sees data releases that are also of interest. In particular PMI data will give an indication of the strength of manufacturing in August. The “flash” PMI for the euro area was lower than July but remained above 50, suggesting that activity continued to rise. The final estimate is not expected to be significantly different. However, new data for the more peripheral economies will provide detail on the extent to which activity varied across the euro area.

The UK July manufacturing PMI posted its sharpest monthly decline in seventeen months. After a very strong first half, we doubt manufacturing growth will be sustained at quite the same pace in H2. However, the scale of the July drop is at odds with other indicators such as the CBI Industrial Trends total orders balance. This points to at least a modest recovery in the PMI in August.

UK mortgage approvals rose in June to 67.2k from 62.0k previously. This brought an end to the series of declines seen since the start of the year. However, BBA figures showed that approvals fell back again in July. While movements in BoE and BBA approvals do not always match, the BBA data cover nearly 70% of the BoE sample, so there will generally be a close correlation. Consequently, we expect BoE approvals to have also dropped and forecast a reading of 66.0K for August. While some of the weakness may be due to the introduction of the Mortgage Market Review earlier this year, the softness of the latest RICS survey suggests that underlying housing market activity may be cooling, especially

take your point on pmis. i wouldnt say manf itself doesnt matter, because its still a big employer, but it makes up a v small part of gdp and given it is vulnerable to external factors, its probably a better indicator of whats going on in manf elsewhere eg. europe.
the construction pmi was a key early driver so will be keenly watched and i suspect a miss there will have greater effect on gbp. servs on wed is of course the biggie. i am still crunching for tomorrows construction, but cant see myself being at or abv consensus at the minute.

Red- yes. all valid points. I like the Manufacturing PMIs because they are much more sensitive to changes in business cycles. They are in a sense for me canaries in the coal mine.

Of course there is the question of whether the various PMIs have any predictive validity at all? For me the jury is still out on that question.

Intra-Day Market Moving New and Views EUR/USD

01 Sep 2014 07:55GMT

EUR/USD - ..... Germany manufacturing grows at its slowest rate in 11 mths. The PMI figure came in weaker-than-expected at 51.4 vs forecast of 52.0.

Italy manufacturing slips back into contraction in August with the PMI read coming in at 49.8, lower than expectation of 50.8.

Euro pares intra-day losses in early European trading after hitting a fresh near 1-year low of 1.3119. Although range trading is seen ahead of release of a slew of EZ eco. data, offers at 1.3140/50 are likely to check present rebound. On the downside, a mixture of bids n stops is reported at 1.3105/00, therefore, steep fall may is unlikely be seen n trading may quieten down after European midday as markets in U.S. & Canada are closed for Labor Day holiday today.

News from Reuters, Ukraine President Poroshenko said, 'events of past few dats show that Russia has launched a direct and open aggression against Ukraine, will forsee high-level personnel changes in armed forces after events in Ukraine last week.'
Russia Foreign Minister Lavrov said, 'Ukrainian troops must leave positions from which they can fire on civilian targets, and expects contact group talks in Minsk today to address task of agreeing to immediate ceasefire without conditions. There will be no military intervention in Ukraine from Russia and Russia will defend its economy, citizens, business in response to sanctions.'

German statistics office showed that Geman Q2 final GDP confirmed at -0.2% Q/Q, +0.8% Y/Y.

The single currency showed muted reaction to the data n traded near intra-day fresh near 1-year trough at 1.3119. Bids are noted at 1.3110-00 n around 1.3080-70, whilst offers are placed at 1.3130-40 n then 1.3150/55 with stops emerging just abv 1.3170.

Sell EURUSD
Entry: 1.31397 Target: 1.31 Stop: 1.31955

The dollar is starting the day higher against most other currencies as the market focused on the prospects for an improving US economy. Friday’s data showed that personal income rose less than expected and personal spending dropped unexpectedly in July, but the market preferred to focus on the jump in the Chicago PMI and the surge in consumer confidence, which reinforced the bull case for the dollar. The rising tensions in Ukraine are also helping the US currency, as the likely impact on the Eurozone economy of further sanctions on Russia can no longer be ignored. As a result, it is opening higher than its early Frida levels against all the G10 currencies except NZD. Among the EM currencies, the dollar was little changed on average. It gained against the Eastern European currencies, particularly RUB, as the Ukrainian situation worsened, but fell vs BRL.
