10 May, 2016

FX News Today

China CPI & PPI: CPI month on month (-0.2%) improved from previous (-0.4%) the year on year figure was a little short of expectations and remained unchanged at 2.3% (expectations were for a slight rise to 2.4%. It eases worries about deflation but the economy remains soft. Producer Price Index (PPI) continued to improve and beat expectations, actual number was -3.4% beating expectations of -3.8% and better than the March figure which was -4.3%.

German Industrial Production & Trade Balance: Worse than expected and was the second consecutive monthly drop. Industrial production was -1.3% from -0.7% last month and significantly weaker than expectations at -0.2%. Conversely the German trade balance exceeded expectations at 23.6bln euro but German exports declined by 0.5% and imports by 4.3% in March 2016 year on year.

Fedspeak: Minneapolis Fed’s Kashkari, monetary policy stance is appropriate and there’s room for improvement in the economy, he said, though non-monetary policies are more important than Fed policy to attain full employment. Indeed, he reiterates that monetary policy has its limits and there’s too much focus on near-term interest rate policy than the need for long-term solutions. Sounds like he continues to straddle the fence and would vote with the consensus in June (whatever that is) if he had a vote.

Japan FM Aso: Yesterday talked of potential intervention by the BOJ and that the US does not object to Japans FX policy, however, overnight he has been quoted “We’ve been saying that one-sided rapid currency moves are undesirable. As a result, the dollar is now moving around 108.00”   All very interesting, USDJPY currently  trading at 108.80.
