Dollar Index Moves Lower on Reduced Trade Optimism and Weak U.S. Economic Data

The dollar index (DXY00) on Monday fell by -0.008 (-0.01%). September euro-fx futures (E6M9) closed up +0.0009 (+0.08%), and EUR/USD (^EURUSD) moved up 0.0008 (+0.07%). September yen futures (J6M9) closed down -0.01 (-0.01%), and USD/JPY (^USDJPY) rose +0.02 (+0.02%). The dollar index on Monday moved lower on reduced optimism for a US/China trade deal along with weaker-than-expected U.S. economic data. Concern the US/China trade spat will persist undercut the dollar Monday after U.S. Commerce Secretary Ross on Sunday said a major trade deal is unlikely to emerge from a possible meeting between President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G-20 summit in Osaka later his month, although he added that the meeting could produce an agreement to at least resume trade talks. The dollar remained lower Monday after the U.S. June Empire manufacturing index plunged by -25.4 to a 2-1/2 year low of -8.6, weaker than expectations of -6.8 to 11.0, which is dovish for Fed policy and dollar-negative. Also, the U.S. June NAHB housing market index unexpectedly fell -2 to 64. weaker than expectations of +1 to 67. GBP/USD on Monday tumbled to a 5-1/2 month low on concern about a no-deal Brexit if Boris Johnson is appointed as the new UK Prime Minister in July, as expected. Gains in EUR/USD were limited by Monday's comments from ECB Executive Board member Coeure who said, "the constellation of prices in the bond market paints a picture of the global economy which is very bleak" and the ECB will act if needed to support the economy.
