Forex: Tuesday's review


The U.S currency rose against the yen and Swiss franc after the retail sales report, which followed data this month showing slowing manufacturing and rising unemployment. Currencies of commodity-exporting countries, such as the Canadian and Australian dollars, rose the most against major peers as raw material prices gained. 
Retail purchases in the U.S. fell 0.2 percent in May, following a 0.3 percent increase in April, Commerce Department figures showed today in Washington. The median forecast of economists called for a 0.5 percent decrease.
Wholesale costs in the U.S. rose more than forecast in May, led by higher prices for fuel, plastics and the fastest rise in 30 years for apparel and textile costs. 
The Thomson Reuters/Jefferies CRB Index of commodities rose 0.2 percent and the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index gained 1.2 percent. 
Earlier China reported increased retail sales and industrial output, spurring appetite for risk.
China’s retail sales rose 16.9 percent last month, while industrial production increased more than economists forecast, the statistics bureau reported. The 5.5 percent increase in China’s consumer-price index was the fastest in almost three years. Lenders were ordered to set aside more cash as reserves.
Data offset concern the fastest-growing major economy is cooling. New loans in China tumbled in May and money supply grew at the slowest pace since 2008, the central bank reported yesterday.
The Swiss franc dropped versus all of its major counterparts as the government lowered its forecast for 2012 economic growth and said further currency appreciation poses risks to its outlook.

GBP/USD: the pair trading at $1.6350-$ 1.6440 zone.

14.0 in June after falling in May. The US Treasury International Capital System (TICS) data is due at 1300GMT, shortly followed at 1315GMT by industrial production, which is expected to rise 0.2% in May after a flat reading in April that resulted from a shortage of motor vehicle parts from Japan.
