British Pound Futures Market News and Commentary

Dollar Index Moves Slightly Lower on Dovish Bullard Comments and Safe-Haven Yen Demand

The dollar index (DXY00) on Wednesday closed down by -0.032 (-0.03%). June euro-fx futures (E6M9) closed up +1 (+0.01%) EUR/USD (^EURUSD) fell -0.0002 (-0.02%). June yen futures (J6M9) closed up +27 (+0.30%) and USD/JPY (^USDJPY) fell -0.21 (-0.19%). The dollar index moved slightly lower Wednesday as weakness in stocks fueled safe-haven demand for the yen at the dollar's expense. USD/JPY was already weak Wednesday as the yen strengthened on stronger-than-expected Japanese economic data after Japan Mar core machine orders unexpectedly rose +3.8% m/m, the biggest increase in 5 months. Also, dovish comments from St. Louis Fed President Bullard (FOMC voter) weighed on the dollar when he said he "wouldn't rule out" a Fed interest rate cut later this year. Losses in the dollar were limited Wednesday on weakness in the British pound as GBP/USD slid -0.41% to a 4-1/2 month low. The pound sank as pressure mounts on UK Prime Minister May to abandon her Brexit plan and resign after her revised Brexit plan (released on Tuesday) was panned by both Labour Party members and by Conservative Party Brexiteers and seems to have little chance of passing in the vote scheduled for early June. Wednesday's minutes of the Apr 30-May 1 FOMC were neutral for the dollar as Fed members signaled patience on interest rate moves for "some time."
