Fed Chair Yellen Dovish. U.K. Prices Up. Weak German ZEW. Yellen To Testify Again on Wednesday

Fed Chair Yellen Dovish. U.K. Prices Up. Weak German ZEW. Yellen To Testify Again on Wednesday
July 16, 2014 00:030 gmt
Daily Risk On/Off Heat Map

Markets seem to be getting the message that Fed Chair Yellen might be starting to prepare Congress and participants for a policy tightening in 2015. Her words generally maintained a dovish posture but she seems to be walking a narrow line.

  • Yields in prime Eurozone fixed income markets are now steady on the day.  Yields on the European periphery are lower. The German 10-yr bund is 1.21%, 0bp.
  • The U.K.10-yr gilt  yield is 2.65%  +4bp. Odds favor a +25bp BOE short-term rate hike by yearend, especially with inflation rising.
  • U.S.10-yr  yield  is 2.57%,  +2bp.
  • Equities closed higher in the Far East. Bourses in Europe are ending mixed to lower. U.S. shares are weaker.

    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:  NZ- CPI, CN- GDP, CA- Bank of Canada US- Yellen

    • The primary focus Tuesday was the first leg of two days of semi-annual  Congressional testimony by Fed Chair Yellen. As expected, she  maintained a generally dovish tone but indicated at some point the central bank will be forced to start to raise rates to normalize policy. On Wednesday she goes before the House.
    • U.S. June Retail Sales were mixed to higher after revisions. The July Empire PMI handily beat street expectations.
    • July German ZEW data were weaker than expected. We have been seeing signs of a weakening of the German economy recently. These data could cause more ECB worry.
    • June U.K. inflation data were hotter than expected and could put intensify pressure on the BOE to tighten later this year.
    • See the FOREX FORUM. for actual data, selected charts, etc.) and  comments from experienced traders to events as they are released.
    • Wednesday will see Chinese GDP,  the U.K. Employment report and the latest Bank of Canada Policy Decision.
    • On Thursday, final EZ CPI data for June will be released. Housing Starts and Permits are due from the U.S. along with Industrial Production and sentiment data. On Friday, Canadian CPI and the preliminary July University of Michigan Survey are due.
