Dollar Weaker as Stocks Rally

The dollar index (DXY00) today posted a 5-week low and is trading slightly lower.  Today’s strength in stocks has reduced liquidity demand for the dollar.  Losses in the dollar are limited by higher T-note yields.  The dollar also has support from increased safe-haven demand after the attempted assassination of former president Donald Trump on Saturday. 

Today’s US economic news supported the dollar after the July Empire manufacturing survey of general business conditions index fell -0.6 to -6.6, stronger than expectations of -7.6.

The markets are discounting the chances for a -25 bp rate cut at 7% for the July 30-31 FOMC meeting and 95% for the following meeting on Sep 17-18.

EUR/USD (^EURUSD) today is up by +0.07% and posted a 3-3/4 month high. A weaker dollar today is supportive of the euro.  The euro also found support from news that Eurozone May industrial production fell less than expected.
