FX News Today

The USD traded mostly softer in Monday trade losing some ground following the November ISM missed expectations, while the U.S. stock market rallied in response to the weakness in the ISM index. The November figure dropped to 48.6, below the 50 break-even for the first time since 2012, and is the lowest since 2009. The November U.S. ADP employment survey will be the key event today, while the main market focus will be the scheduled speech from Fed Chairwomen Janet Yellen. However, the Fed Chairwomen will not commit to any specific timing on any interest rate hike, especially ahead of Friday’s jobs report and the FOMC meeting.

Notable U.S. Fed speak from Chicago Fed voter Evans reiterated that he favors later liftoff than his peers and that a gradual pace of hikes is required given downside inflation risks. He thinks it may be appropriate for rates to be below 1% by the end of 2016. He is not optimistic on a quick pick up in inflation as he judges core inflation will be just under 2% by the end of 2018. This is probably the most likely scenario.

The European calendar has prelim Eurozone Nov HCIP, and PPI, UK construction PMI, the main focus will be on the preliminary Eurozone HICP reading for November. The German and Spanish inflation ticked higher, and if confirmed, a 0.3% y/y reading in the overall Eurozone number would still be higher than the 0.2% y/y reported for October. This would then confirm the uptrend that has been visible in the last couple of months. EU core inflation also has been trending higher.
