BREAKING NEWS: U.S. 2Q15 GDP a Bit Lower Than Expected
london red 16:45 GMT 07/30/2015
cable. hourly close below 15568 fib would suggest lower but think shorting sterling is fighting the trend as mkt getting set for next weeks mpc, the minutes and inflation report which all fire off together. at a stretch we could get 6:3 aginst a hike which would make some waves. certainly think mkt will be going long into report and if only slightl beat on data then may be better to travel than arrive, but for now mkt likely to find sterling attractive even against dollar if buying dips, but certainly vs euro

The FOMC meeting has come and gone and with the exception of one small woird change it should have been uneventful. Instead, markets are being forced to price in the risk of a September rase hike and that has boosted the dollar. This has seen the dollar firm across-the-board and is likely to enter the new week on a firm footing, with support seen ahead of the key US jobs report. See my forex trading outlook for the week ahead.

The hint in the last paragraph of course was that Pedro had also managed to rub certain of his colleagues and editors, some who are observed with far greater regard by the Fed because of their willingness to only ask preapproved questions.

And that, in a nutshell, is how the world's "freest press" operates.

Knez, yes only move back above 10920 on a closing basis rules out 10885 but realistically anything abv 10920 sees momentum lost. below 10885 is 10870 another prev low. only thing to watch later tomorrow maybe is that 100hma is going to soon start heading lower towards the 200hma. currently there is about half a figure between them so it will happen late tomorrow maybe but mkt will rally slightly before or on the cross to stop out traders following that system.

Away from Greece -- the EUR couldn't rally on the sleepy Fed, nor on the "disappointing" US GDP -- the longer term will be dominated by QE in EZ and US short rates // China trade, Europe election cycle, Russian sanctions are negatives but Iran may be positive (see French arm deals w/ Saudis)

not passing judgement on the validity, what is more important is that it helps janet justify her eagerness for her "lift-off"

IMF has been the wild card since the new bailout talks started -- IMF wants debt forgiveness under its rules of sustainability, EU (Merkel/Schauble) says "CAN'T" do under its rules // both have political issues -- IMF exceeded its commitment levels w/ Greece and many members object to further involvement -- EU (note Cameron response to contribution) needs to save EZ but Greece can't be saved -- Merkel risks political fight in her party to save EZ, a non acceptable risk

Kick the Can strategy is running out of ROAD but barring a Syriza dumping Tsipras (snap election?) the ECB will get paid in August

09:38 (GR) IMF staff on Wed told board that Greece's poor reform record would disqualify it from a third IMF bailout, potentially delaying IMF participation in bailout plan - FT

- The staff determination means that while they will continue to participate in bailout talks in Athens, the IMF will not decide whether to agree to a new program for several months, possibly not until 2016.
- The delay in IMF decision on participation in a new bailout could cause problems for the Greek talks because Germany has said it would be impossible to get approval for the Ä86B program from the Bundestag without the IMF participating.

Bill Gross says Fed recognizing zero percent rates causing harm to U.S.

By Jennifer Ablan

NEW YORK, July 30 (Reuters) - Closely followed bond investor Bill Gross on Thursday said the Federal Reserve is beginning to recognize that ultra low interest rates increasingly have negative as well as positive consequences.

Gross' remarks in his August Investment Outlook came a day after the Fed, at the conclusion of its two-day policy meeting, left its benchmark short-term interest rate near zero but dropped several hints that it is near seeing enough improvement in the job market to prompt officials to raise the rate as early as September.

The roughly $7 trillion that the world's three biggest central banks, including the Fed, have pumped into the financial system since the financial crisis has succeeded mostly in lifting prices of securities rather than the cost of goods and workers' wages, Gross said.

Chris, after fed there was no more risk to gdp release so folk positioned long usd then, thats what i was talking about last night. now you either covered pre data if you are risk averse like me, or you covered on the release given it did not suggest continued downside (at least initially not). i actually did a mixture of the two with the help of an put option which i left for the print.
there wasnt much of a run down for euro early this week, in fact euro moved higher, so positioning certainly wasnt skewed too far to dollar long side until maybe overnight. hf specs certainly will have covered on the data and are now looking for a blip to sell or they will be forced to sell break of 10920. those still holding may have stops over 10965/68 or the 200hms or 10990/98. not sure we can break 110 but data wasnt spectacular enough to kill yourself selling euros thus think lower hanging stops can be run (65/68).

DJ Trade Provided Tailwind to Economy in 2Q -- Market Talk

8:38 EDT - International trade was a net positive for the US economy last quarter, adding 0.13 percentage point to the period's 2.3% GDP growth. Exports grew an annualized 5.3%, outpacing imports' 3.5% gain. The results are somewhat surprising; many economists worried a strong dollar and turmoil in overseas economies has been holding back demand for US-made goods. Meanwhile, US businesses pulled back on investments, spending less on construction projects and equipment. Nonresidential fixed investment fell at an annualized 0.6% in 2Q, the first decline since 3Q12. The drop could be a sign companies are acting more cautiously even while consumers stepped up spending and the housing market appears to be on more-solid footing. (eric.morath@wsj.com; @ericmorath)
