hedge funds have been selling their long euro positions from last FOMC meeting. this selling has been met by central banks and national wealth funds who are reducing their extra dollar longs from extraordinary winnings from US stock markets.
so that is why so tight range.
If I were central bank I would take off the euro bid for a while. until FOMC meeting next week. if hedge funds wants to get rid their long then central could buy euro later next week below 200 points lower at least.

Biden administration is seeking to keep more borrowers in their homes by extending the length of mortgages and lock in lower monthly payments.

the national foreclosure ban is set to expire July 31.

The relief is meant for borrowers preparing to exit forbearance programs but who can’t resume their normal mortgage payments because they earn less now than before the pandemic.

big tech has been rolling lower again over the last hour. this likely will surpress the main indices but you will see other sector stocks either staying flat or gently moving off lows. eg fedex now up. apple under 141.75 will open up levels close to 137.

initial selling in us over. they may now look to 4274-89 res. if that caps then can move to lows late session. but if breached then they can close by 4320 today. but in that case pullback would be over. if they can stay under 4274 then still chance to see lower levels later in week.

tapped into some mcd and cleveland cliffs here. mds chart looks constructive and stock is traditionally defensive. and aside from that you cannot buy a mcd site for $hit, they are selling their family members rather than parting with drive thru mcd or even kcf or anything of that ilk. while cleveland is at 100dma which halted 3 past declines. the stock has not closed below 100dma since 6 bucks. further erosion means 200dma and 16 bucks which would be where id add.

No news to trigger the dollar (metals as well) turnaround (as I have noted to subscribers, beware of fading straight line moves as seen on AT charts).

JP, its still early even for premkt but im not seeing too many bargains in big tech yet, although some of the other sectors are beginning to look ok. certainly in the uk i am ready to begin picking up this week across the board. but back to us, i was hoping to buy back appple microsoft and amazon than i recently took off but only the later is making much downside headway. msft would be nice to pick up 260 and lower, aapl 137 (141 maybe if mkt doesnt fall much) and amazon 3200/3300 area. these would be trades that id add to on further falls, but would also expect to close out on rebounds towards or at new highs.

if stock fallout continues euro could visit the 38.2 by 11692 and usdpln 4.0. theres a double top on the euro chart which would target 1.11 but i think you need to see a return to pre vaccine panic to see those levels. the delta is infectious but few are dying, certainly in the uk. the 50% comes in v close to a prev high of 11496. maybe you could get there is stocks sell off sharply to 4k but realistically you guess it stops not far under 1.17. however the trend is your friend and it they dont reverse once down there, you could start to see the double top begin to partial play out. its not my base case though. as i say too much money in system and you suspect that jackson hole will be used to underline free money rather than begin taking it away given the delta spread.

i think 4275 will provide a bounce. you cant know for sure until its turned but that could be as low as it goes. if not then 4165. it would require something new ie. policy change, significant us restrictions to get more. if we saw levels just above 4k that would be around 10%. i cant see any more realistically as there is just too much money. you still cant buy anything off grid with a yield for anywehre near reasonable money.

European Central Bank officials are poised to reveal just how their new monetary strategy, unveiled with fanfare earlier this month, will actually make a difference to investors.

At their decision on Thursday, policy makers will tweak their stance to reflect changes ranging from a slightly higher inflation goal of 2% to an explicit allowance that they might overshoot it for a while. ECB President Christine Lagarde has already primed financial markets, saying they should prepare for new guidance on stimulus “given the persistence that we need to demonstrate to deliver on our commitment.” .../..

Fed's Evans says need more progress on employment before taper
- “Given the more recent months of lower employment growth than I was expecting, I would say that there are still things to assess in terms of substantial further progress that needs to be met for us to make adjustments in our monetary policy stance,”

- It will take “more than a couple of months” to sort out timing on when tapering will be appropriate - By Reuters Staff

Fed's Evans: taper bar could be met later this year - rtrs
- the bar for tapering asset purchases could be met "later this year."
- promised to continue to buy Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities at its current pace of $120 billion a month until there is "substantial further progress" toward the Fed's goals of 2% inflation and full employment.
- still believes a first rate hike could be appropriate in early 2024

Powell plays down direct link of Fed’s purchases of mortgage bonds and the spike in home prices
- Fed’s bond buying was not to blame and was only “a factor among factors.” Both supply and demand reasons were pushing home prices up

- “Mortgage backed security purchases really work a lot like Treasury purchases. They are not especially important in what is happening with housing prices,”

- the good news” on higher home prices is that “this is not driven by the kind of reckless, irresponsible lending that led to the housing bubble that led to the last financial crisis. Those kinds of things are not happening at least so far.” he said.

"Economists polled by FactSet anticipate a 4.9% increase in overall CPI for June from a year earlier and a 0.5% increase from a month earlier. That’s down a touch from the 5% and 0.6% respective increases reported in May.

Excluding food and energy, economists see a 4% year-over-year rise and a 0.4% month-over-month gain in consumer prices. The so-called core numbers rose at 3.8% and 0.7% clips, respectively, during May."

Inflation. Consumer price inflation, as measured by the 12-month change in the PCE price index, moved up from 1.2 percent at the end of last year to 3.9 percent in May. The 12-month measure of inflation that excludes food and energy items (so-called core inflation) was 3.4 percent in May, up from 1.4 percent at the end of last year. Some of the strength in recent 12-month inflation readings reflects the comparison of current prices with prices that sank at the onset of the pandemic as households curtailed spending—a transitory result of “base effects.” More lasting but likely still temporary upward pressure on inflation has come from prices for goods experiencing supply chain bottlenecks, such as motor vehicles and appliances. .. . .. are in a range that is broadly consistent with the FOMC’s longer-run inflation objective."

• North America-based CFOs express little confidence in the Fed to control inflation, but their view of the near-term future for stocks is more optimistic, with the majority expecting the Dow to reach 40,000 rather than sell off, and bond yields expected to rise moderately into the end of the year.

U.K. Faces Food Shortages as Worker Scarcity Gets Worse

(Bloomberg) -- From abattoirs to restaurant kitchens, the U.K. food sector is facing a massive challenge this summer: there just aren’t enough workers.

The food industry, already facing labor shortages because of Brexit and the pandemic, is now being stretched to capacity as the country reopens. Meat processors are cutting production and a “catastrophic” dearth of drivers is disrupting food deliveries to supermarkets. Warehouses and farms are short of labor too, threatening to choke food supply flows, while local pubs and Michelin-starred restaurants are having to restrict service and boost wages for chefs and waiting staff. .../.

" The US remains in focus today with a $62 bln 7y auction, April durable goods orders and the weekly jobless claims. We doubt though whether they will be pivotal for trading. The overarching feeling over the past few days is one of doubt and not knowing where to go from here. In the run-up to the long US weekend (May 31, Memorial Day) we don’t expect to see large directional moves. Both US and German (10y) yields are near or have hit first support levels. These should hold as long as the big picture of the economic reopening remains intact. The dollar’s downside got a little more protection after yesterday’s price action. That said, we see no reason for a protracted USD revival either. EUR/USD touched 23.6% Fibonacci support (Nov 20 – Jan 21 upleg) near 1.217 this morning. Some sideways consolidation might be in the making. EUR/GBP continues a choppy upward sloping path."

The worldwide shortage of computer chips will impact all aspects of agriculture for the next two years and beyond... farm equipment manufacturers have halted shipments to dealers because they don't have the chips to put in the equipment... not only have combine, planter, tillage, and tractor sales been impacted, but even ATV supplies are limited.

Fed's Evans Says It Is Too Soon to Talk About Fed Aid Pullback

(Reuters) - Federal Reserve officials would like to see higher inflation, more wage growth and several months of strong employment gains averaging 1 million jobs added before they would consider adjusting monetary policy, Chicago Fed Bank President Charles Evans said on Monday.

“We just want to be sure that monetary policy doesn’t get in the way of a vibrant labor market,” Evans said during a virtual conversation organized by the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing. “I think accommodative monetary policy will continue to be appropriate ... We’ve got, you know, some room to overshoot inflation.”
