US Initial Jobless Claims Rise, Pending Home Sales reach a 9-Year High

Image

In US the number of Americans filing for Initial Jobless benefits rose last week to 282K while analyst expectations were at 270K.

US pending home sales soared to a nine-year high in April in a strong start to the prime spring season, according to the National Association of Realtors. The National Association of Realtors said its Pending Home Sales Index rose 3.4% in April to a level of 108.7 which is the highest level since May 2006.

Jim O'Sullivan, US economist said "Housing is an important reason why the trend in growth looks much stronger for non-manufacturing and the overall economy, than for manufacturing now".

This uptrend in home sales came after a growth in US Jobs sector, which has increased demand to buy houses.

UK GDP expanded by 0.3% while analyst expectations were for a 0.4% increase. Economic growth slowed due to the service sector performing worse than expected and a widening UK trade deficit.

In Japan Inflation and Industrial production increased more than expected. Japan's Industrial production increased 1.0% in April, while inflation data showed the CPI moving higher 0.2% in May.

USD/JPY is steady at 13-year highs due to increased demand for US Dollar and the indications that the US economy is gaining momentum after a slowdown in the first quarter.

NZDUSD fell to 0.7115 undermined by New Zealand's lac of business optimism and estimates of inflation below the central bank's target.

In a report, European Central Bank said that Euro Zone M3 Money Supply rose to 5.3%. It is the amount of domestic currency in circulation and deposited in banks.

The Euro Zone Consumer and Business Confidence was stable in May at 103.8, overall economic sentiment was mixed across the Euro zone. While it improved in Germany, France, and the Netherlands, it dropped in Italy and Greece.

Howard Archer, Chief UK and European Economist said "The fact that overall Eurozone economic sentiment held up well in May could ease concern that the Eurozone's recovery is starting to flag as the recent stimulus it has received is diluted by a recent firming in the euro, oil prices and bond yields from very low levels".

Crude Oil is trading higher at $58.60 after US Crude Stockpile fell for 4th Week.

Gold is trading stronger in the Asia at 1189.63 while Silver has recovered its losses at 16.75

Euro Drops amid ongoing Greece talks

Image

Euro is trading lower against all its counterparts amid concerns that Greece will be unable to repay over €300 million due to the IMF on June 5 and a possible exit from the Eurozone.

Euro recovery seems to have lost steam as concerns are rising over a possible Greek default if it is unable to reach a deal with its European creditors soon. Greek negotiations are going on as its creditors are pressing for action in areas including the pension system, labor market and sales tax.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has said “The lack of an agreement so far is not due to the supposed intransigent, uncompromising and incomprehensible Greek stance. It is due to the insistence of certain institutional actors on submitting absurd proposals and displaying a total indifference to the recent democratic choice of the Greek people".

Germany's EU Commissioner Guenter Oettinger said "We will need progress at the working group level, in order that we can agree on a reform agenda, perhaps even by the end of the week, which would trigger the payment of the last tranche of aid from the current aid program".

"Greek debt yields provide only a rough guide, and although a missed deadline will not spell default, market concern remains high. It's difficult to quantify how much the currency market has factored in the possibility of Greece missing the June 5 repayment deadline" said Shinichiro Kadota, chief Japan Forex strategist at Barclays in Tokyo.

China HSBC Manufacturing PMI for May came at 49.2 in line with analyst expectations.

Annabel Fiddes, Economist at Markit, on the HSBC PMI, said it "signaled a further deterioration in the health of China's manufacturing sector in May."

In Japan, capital spending for non-financial firms jumped 7.3% in the first quarter, while Japan manufacturing for May was steady at 50.9 as expected.

Euro zone’s Manufacturing PMI fell to 52.2 while analyst expectations were at 52.3

Germany’s Manufacturing PMI fell to 51.1 while analyst expectations were at 51.4

Crude Oil is trading higher at $59.85 as traders await OPEC meeting in Vienna on June 5.

Gold is trading lower in the Asia at 1187.22 while Silver has recovered its losses at 16.68

US ISM Manufacturing Index Increased to a 3-month high in May

Image

US Institute for Supply Management (ISM) manufacturing index increased to a 3-month high in May as manufacturing activity in the US expanded at a faster pace than expected.

US Manufacturing expanded in May as the PMI registered 52.8 percent, an increase of 1.3 percentage points over the April reading of 51.5 percent, indicating growth in manufacturing for the 29th consecutive month.

US consumer spending remained flat in April as households cut back on purchases of luxury items and continued to increase savings.

"While the US economy still looks set to rebound from the decline seen in the first quarter, the extent of the second quarter recovery therefore remains highly uncertain and could well disappoint. It therefore remains too early to take a reliable reading on the health of the economy and the data flow over the summer will be crucial in determining the timing of the first Fed rate hike." - said Chris Williamson, Chief Economist at Markit.

The Reserve Bank of Australia kept interest rates unchanged at a record low 2.0 percent, in line with analysts' expectations. Following the news Australian dollar remained bullish and AUDUSD touched a high of 0.7700

"There are a lot of factors influencing the currency. One of those is probably tomorrow, the GDP number for the first quarter. It's probably going to be very strong," Matthew Circosta, an analyst at Moody's Analytics, told CNBC. "But moving forward, you'll see that Aussie dollar weakness coming through in the next few months, because the U.S. is going to be raising interest rates."

UK manufacturing activity increased in May to 52.0 which accounts for about 10% of the UK economy.

"Expectations of a broad rebound in U.K. economic growth during the second quarter of the year is called into question by these readings" – said Rob Dobson, senior economist at Markit.

Greek debt negotiations continue between Greece and its European creditors. IMF chief Christine Lagarde, ECB president Mario Draghi, French president Francois Hollande and European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker met yesterday to give out an offer for Greece to consider.

Crude Oil is trading higher at $60.90 ahead of weekly US supply data.
Gold is trading lower in the Asia at 1187.26 while Silver is weak at 16.65

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said "We have submitted a realistic plan for Greece to exit the crisis. We are not waiting for them to submit a proposal, Greece is submitting a plan - it is now clear that the decision on whether they want to adjust to realism... the decision rests with the political leadership of Europe."

Greek deal hopes and Euro zone debt yields lift Euro

Image

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said after talking with the senior EU officials that Greece was close to a deal with its creditors and it would make a payment due to the IMF on Friday.

The 10 year US Treasury yields reached at 2.3696% the highest level since Nov 2014.

"The biggest positive about the bond market weakness is that yields’ going higher is a net positive for all of the financials. Higher yields on fixed income translate into higher rates and that increases the net interest margin for financials," - Michael James, MD Wedbush Securities, Los Angeles.

EURUSD is trading at 1.1345 in the European trading session having touched a high of 1.1378

Greece delays IMF payment until end of June

Image

Greece moves closer to default and a possible exit from the Eurozone as it will not make a scheduled €300m loan repayment to IMF on Friday.

IMF said on Thursday "The Greek authorities have informed the fund today that they plan to bundle the country's four June payments into one, which is now due on June 30," Gerry Rice, IMF spokesperson, said, citing rules allowing debtor countries to regroup "multiple principal payments falling due in a calendar month".

It is the first time that Greece will postpone a repayment to IMF as Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is facing opposition from his supporters on tough terms associated with the debt deal.

Greek prime minister has come under pressure from his supporters to withhold the payment of €300m due to IMF on June 5. The country is running out of funds and needs the final €7.2bn bailout funds to be able to repay €1.54 billion to IMF by June 30.

Greece PM Tsipras said “Such extremist proposals cannot be accepted by the Greek government. Everyone must understand that the Greek people have greatly suffered over the last five years and some have to stop playing games at their expense.”

EURUSD pulled back yesterday after this decision from a high of 1.1365 to a low of 1.1178 in the Asian trading session today.

Traders are focusing on the US Non-Farm Payroll report due to be released today at 12:30 GMT. Analysts expect a growth of 227K in the job markets for the month of May. Pre-NFP data suggest a strong NFP report today. Analysts forecast for the Unemployment rate is at 5.4%, the lowest level in seven years.

Today’s NFP report will indicate whether Fed is willing to hike interest rates in September 2015. Fed will hike interest rates this year if the NFP data picks up in May.

In UK the Bank of England kept its benchmark interest rate at 0.5%, the lowest level since 2009. The decision by BoE to hold interest rates was supported by data that showed growth of the UK economy slowed down in the Q1 2015 to 0.3%.

"In UK much will clearly depend on how economic growth, earnings and productivity develop over the coming months, as well as just how quickly inflation moves up later on this year" - Howard Archer, chief UK and European economist at IHS Global Insight.

In Canada Ivey PMI rose to 62.3 supported by an increase in employment and inventory levels. Today investors will focus on CAD Full Time Employment Change report due on 12:30 GMT. Analysts estimate that Canada's economy will add 10K jobs in May with jobless rate remaining at 6.8%.

Crude Oil is trading lower at $57.85 on concerns over spiking European yields.

Strong US Non-Farm Payrolls report boosts Fed Rate Hike in September

Image

In US total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 280,000 in May, and the unemployment rate was essentially unchanged at 5.5 percent. Job gains occurred in professional and business services, leisure and hospitality, and health care. Mining employment continued to decline - US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

NFP report indicates that the US job market continues to improve solidly and the health of the US economy is more favorable than the weakness displayed in the Q1 GDP report.

US dollar remained strong across its major counterparts on Friday after the US jobs report boosted speculation of a Fed rate hike in September this year.

New York Fed president Dudley noted that "if the labour market continues to improve and inflation expectations remain well-anchored, then I would expect, in the absence of some dark cloud gathering over the growth outlook, to support a decision to begin normalizing monetary policy later this year".

Greece talks continue to dominate the markets as Greek PM Alexis Tsipras stated "the proposals from the creditors are clearly unrealistic...The Greek government cannot consent to unreasonable proposals that call for devastating measures for pensioners and Greek families. I want to believe that it was a bad negotiating trick".

Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis said "the government will not sign a deal that extends this self-feeding crisis of the last 5 years".

In Canada Net Change in Employment for the month of May was +58.9K Jobs while Unemployment Rate remained at 6.8%.

In Japan the economy grew at 3.9% in the first quarter of 2015 beating analyst expectations of a 2.7% growth.

In Germany Factory orders increased by 1.4% in April as German industry looks to experience a boost this year.

Crude Oil is trading higher at $59.02 after OPEC decided to keep its production target unchanged.

Greece expects to get bailout extension until March 2016

Image

Greece is in talks with its European creditors for an extension of the country's bailout program until March 2016.

Greece is running out of funds as talks continue over agreements between Greece and the European Commission, European Central Bank (ECB) and International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The European Commission has received a new three page proposal from the Greek government to unlock the bailout funds and bridge the differences on critical issues such as the pension and VAT reforms.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said "that a Greek bankruptcy will be the beginning of the end for the Eurozone. If Europe’s political leadership is unable to handle a problem like Greece, which represents 2% of its economy, how will the markets react for countries with much bigger problems, such as Spain and Italy. If Greece goes under, the markets will immediately seek out the next one. If negotiations should collapse, the cost to European taxpayers will be huge”.

He further stated "I think we're very close to an agreement on the primary surplus for the next few years. There just needs to be a positive attitude on alternative proposals to cuts to pensions or the imposition of recessionary measures."

US President Barack Obama said after the end of the G7 summit meeting “We support the efforts to find a path that will allow Greece to implement the necessary reforms and return to growth, in a strong, stable and developing Eurozone”.

EURUSD has reversed its losses post NFP as the European and US bond yields have soared to their highest levels this year.

In Germany Exports and Industrial output rose for the month of April. Exports rose by 1.9% while the industrial production increased 0.9% in April.

"German exporters are increasingly capitalizing on the advantages of a weaker euro, as well as a global demand recovery" - Christian Schulz, economist at Berenberg.

In Australia Business confidence increased for the month of May as the Reserve Bank of Australia made operating conditions easier by cutting interest rates to a record low.

National Bank of Australia has revised its fiscal 2015 GDP forecast to 2.4% but lowered its fiscal 2016 GDP forecast to 2.6%.

Crude Oil is trading higher at $59.19 as weak US dollar boosted demand and pushed global prices higher.

Gold is trading higher in the Europe at 1181.34 while Silver is strong at 16.16

Yen Soars on Bank of Japan comments

Image

Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko said today "The yen is unlikely to fall further on a real effective exchange rate basis because it is already very weak".

The US dollar touched a 2 week low against yen after the comments. USDJPY dropped 200 pips to touch a low of 122.56 in the European trading session.

"There is no asset bubble in Japan at this point. It's hard to conclude decisively that the dollar will continue to strengthen further just because the Fed has done tapering and eyeing raising interest rates" - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda.

"If you look at the real effective exchange rate, it shows that the yen is already very weak. Even further declines on a real effective exchange rate basis are not likely to happen" - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda.

Globally Bond yields are increasing as Australian 10-year bonds advanced to 3.05%, New Zealand rates rose to 3.92%, 10 year German bund rates rose to 0.95%, US 10 year 10-year Treasury note was at 2.417%, 10-year U.K. government bond yield increased to 2.119%.

“It’ll take some time for the bond market to recover its composure. The situation in Greece and moves surrounding the U.S. rate hike are still cause for concern” - Yutaka Miura, Mizuho Securities Tokyo.

“Last week we saw a stand-off between the EU authorities and Greece’s government. Volatility in the bond market has added to investor nervousness, not helped by Mario Draghi’s comments last week” - James Barty, BofA-Merrill Lynch.

Greek PM Alexis Tsipras is in Brussels to meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande with an aim to achieve a breakthrough in the negotiations and secure the much needed bailout funds for his country.

In US number of job openings has hit the highest level in April as conditions are improving in the US labour market. The US recorded 5.4 million job openings for the month of April.

In UK trade deficit shrank more than expected for the month of April. UK's trade deficit was at 1.2 billion pounds while imports increased by 2.1%.

"In UK although the near-term outlook for the external sector does not look fantastic, at least net trade this quarter looks unlikely to repeat the first quarter's big negative contribution to overall GDP growth" - Vicky Redwood, chief UK economist at Capital Economics.

Crude Oil rallied to reach a high of $61.41 after news that US stockpiles posted a larger than expected decline for last week.

Reserve Bank of New Zealand cut its Cash rate to 3.25%

Image

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand unexpectedly cut its official cash rate by 0.25% to 3.25% the first reduction since 2011.

"The New Zealand economy is growing at an annual rate around three percent, supported by low interest rates, high net migration and construction activity, and the decline in fuel prices. However, the fall in export commodity prices that began in mid-2014 is proving more pronounced. The weaker prospects for dairy prices and the recent rises in petrol prices will slow income and demand growth and increase the risk that the return of inflation to the mid-point would be delayed" - Reserve Bank of New Zealand.

"With the fall in commodity prices and the expected weakening in demand, the exchange rate has declined from its recent peak in April, but remains overvalued. A further significant downward adjustment is justified. In light of the forecast deterioration in the current account balance, such an exchange rate adjustment is needed to put New Zealand’s net external position on a more sustainable path" - Reserve Bank of New Zealand.

Following the rate cut NZDUSD plunged to a 5 year low of 0.7005 in the European trading session. The move by the RBNZ surprised traders as market was pricing less than 50% chances of a rate cut this morning.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras had late night talks with the leaders of Germany and France to reach a solution and avoid default. Greece needs to repay €1.6bn to the IMF by the end of June.

"It was agreed unanimously that the talks between the Greek government and the institutions should be pursued with great intensity" - German government spokesman.
"We decided to intensify the efforts to bridge the remaining differences and proceed, I believe, to a solution in the coming period" - Greek PM Alexis Tsipras.

Ratings agency S&P has downgraded Greece by lowering its credit rating from CCC+ to CCC citing the delayed International Monetary Fund repayment.

In Japan Manufacturing activity deteriorated in the second quarter of the year as Business Survey Index plunged from 2.4 in the Q1 to -6.0 in the Q2.

"In Japan Core consumer spending fell to the lowest level since last summer in April, and industrial output may well have contracted this quarter. We therefore expect a sharp slowdown in GDP growth" - Marcel Thieliant, Capital Economics.

In UK Manufacturing output declined in April by 0.4% while total industrial production climbed 0.4% from the previous month.

"The British economy is on a firm footing, having grown faster than previously thought in 2014 and with solid, steady and sustainable growth predicted into 2016" - NIESR.

Crude Oil is down to $61.15 after profit taking in the European trading session.

Gold is trading lower in the Europe at 1179.63 while Silver is weak at 15.86
