British Pound Futures Market News and Commentary

Dollar Index Falls to a 1-Week Low on EUR/USD Strength and Weak US Durable Goods Orders

The dollar index (DXY00) on Friday fell by -0.27 (-0.28%) to a 1-week low. June euro-fx futures (E6M9) closed up +23 (+0.20%) at a 1-week high and EUR/USD (^EURUSD) rose +0.0029 (+0.26%) to a 1-week high. June yen futures (J6M9) closed up +9 (+0.10%) at a 1-week high and USD/JPY (^USDJPY) fell -0.25 (-0.23%) to a 1-week low. The dollar index moved lower Friday on strength in EUR/USD and on weaker-than-expected U.S. economic data. EUR/USD rose to a 1-week high Friday after political risks in Italy eased when Italian Deputy Prime Minister Salvini said he would be willing to talk to French and German leaders to try to secure a higher national debt ratio. The dollar extended its losses Friday morning after the U.S. Apr durable goods orders report of -2.1% and unchanged ex-transportation was slightly weaker than expectations of -2.0% and +0.1% ex-transportation. Also, USD/JPY fell to a 1-week low on the stronger-than-expected Japan Apr national CPI (ex fresh food & energy) report of +0.6% y/y, the largest increase in 2-3/4 years. Finally, GBP/USD recovered slightly from Thursday's 4-1/2 month low on short covering after UK Prime Minister May said she will step down as Conservative Party leader on June 7 with an election to choose her replacement beginning on June 10. Big Picture Dollar Factors: Bullish factors for the dollar index include (1) the Fed's balance sheet drawdown program through September and the Fed-dot forecast for one more rate hike in 2020 vs near-zero policy rates by the ECB and BOJ, (2) relative strength in the U.S. economy, and (3) the repatriation of U.S. corporate overseas cash under the 2018 tax law. Bearish factors include (1) the decline in the 10-year T-note yield to a 1-1/2 year low of 2.290%, which weakens the dollar's interest rate differentials, (2) market expectations for at least two Fed rate cuts through 2020, (3) trade tensions and Washington political uncertainty, and (4) the wide U.S. budget and current account deficits. Bearish factors for EUR/USD include (1) the ECB's promise to leave interest rates unchanged at least through end-2019, (2) weak Eurozone economic growth, (3) the slump in the 10-year bund yield to a 2-1/2 year low of -0.132%, which undercuts the euro's interest rate differentials, and (4) Brexit risks.
