    Daily Market Commentary - Fundamental Outlook

    The euro came off marginally vis--vis the U.S. dollar today as the single currency tested bids around the US$ 1.3610 level and was capped around the $1.3635 level. The dollar failed to sustain short-lived gains it scored on Friday following the release of relatively strong June non-farm payrolls data and this could render the greenback on the defensive in the short-term. Data released in the eurozone today saw German May industrial production up 1.9% m/m while the German May trade surplus expanded to 17.5 billion from 15.0 billion in April. All eyes are on today's eurozone finance ministers meeting and the fireworks that are expected to ensue. French finance minister Sarkozy is expected to tell his EMU-13 counterparts why France should delay its deficit reduction goal. European Central Bank President Trichet countered some of Sarkozy's ongoing criticism of the common currency and its strength by saying "denying that economic and monetary stability is at the heart of (the euro's success) would be an enormous error." Remarks from ECB member Stark will be closely scrutinized today. In U.S. news, the May trade balance will be released on Thursday and June retail sales will be released on Friday along with University of Michigan consumer sentiment. Euro bids are cited around the US$ 1.3565/ 20 levels.

    / CNY
    The yen weakened marginally vis--vis the U.S. dollar today as the greenback tested offers around the 123.65 level and was supported around the 123.25 level. Technically, today's intraday high was right around the 76.4% retracement of the move from 124.15 to 122.10. Economic data released today reinforce the view that Bank of Japan's Policy Board will keep interest rates unchanged this week and likely lift them by +25bps to +0.75% next month. The June economy watchers' index fell last month for its third consecutive decline, printing at 46.0 from 46.8 in May. Also, May core private sector machinery orders surged 5.9% m/m, the fastest pace of growth in eleven months. Additionally, June money supply was up 1.8% y/y and June bank lending rose 0.7% y/y, weaker-than-expected and down from May's 0.9% pace. The government upgraded its view of the economy for the first time in nearly a year. The Nikkei 225 stock index gained 0.67% to close at 18,261.98. Dollar bids are cited around the 122.85/ 45 levels. The euro was little-changed vis--vis the yen as the single currency tested offers around the 168.50 level and was supported around the 167.95 level. The British pound and Swiss franc moved higher vis--vis the yen as the crosses tested offers around the 238.75 and 101.55 levels, respectively. In Chinese news, the yuan's central parity rate vis--vis the U.S. dollar was set at CNY 7.6085, down from CNY 7.6135. Data released in China today saw consumer confidence improve in Q2. Goldman Sachs reported Q3 GDP growth is expected around 12% and Citigroup reported the yuan's appreciation will accelerate in Q3.


    The British pound climbed higher vis--vis the U.S. dollar today as cable tested offers around the US$ 2.0160 level and was supported around the $2.0095 level.

Data released in the U.K. today saw June producer output prices up 0.2% and producer input prices up 0.6% m/m and 2.1% y/y. These data were slightly less-than-expected but it was also reported that consumers believe the yearly rate in input price inflation will rise to 2.1% from 1.3% in May. Most traders believe Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee will tighten monetary policy by at least another +25bps in 2007 and possibly take the repo rate higher to 6.25%. Cable bids are cited around the US$ 2.0060 level. The euro weakened vis--vis the British pound as the single currency tested bids around the ₤0.6760 level and was capped around the ₤0.6775 level.

    CHF
    The Swiss franc appreciated marginally vis--vis the U.S. dollar today as the greenback tested bids around the CHF 1.2150 level and was capped around the CHF 1.2190 level. Technically, today's intraday high was right around the 23.6% retracement of the move from CHF 1.2475 to CHF 1.2090.
