Dollar Slightly Lower on Weak US Economic Reports

The dollar index (DXY00) on Wednesday fell slightly by -0.06%.  The main bearish factor was the weak US manufacturing PMI and new home sales reports.  The dollar partially recovered from early losses as the T-note yield rose during the day.  The 10-year T-note yield ended the day up +2.2 bp at 4.272%.

The preliminary-July S&P US manufacturing PMI fell by -2.1 points to 49.5, which was substantially weaker than expectations of unchanged at 51.6.  The US manufacturing PMI fell below the expansion-contraction level of 50.0 for the first time since December 2023, indicating weakness in the US manufacturing sector.  By contrast, the preliminary-July S&P US services PMI rose by +0.7 points to 56.0, stronger than expectations for a -0.4 point decline to 54.9.

June US new home sales fell by -0.6% to 617,000, weaker than expectations of a rise to 640,000.  Home sales are being undercut by high mortgage rates and high home prices.
