03:00 New Zealand Expected Annual Inflation 2y from now Quarter II +2.5% +2.4%


The euro fell against most of its major peers before data that may show consumer sentiment slid to a four-month low amid Europe’s debt woes. A gauge of household sentiment in the euro area probably dropped to minus 20.5 this month from minus 19.9 in April, according to the median economist estimate in a Bloomberg News survey before the European Commission reports the figure today.

The 17-nation currency snapped a two-day advance against the dollar as European Union leaders prepare for a summit to discuss the fiscal crisis. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said yesterday she won’t shy away from disagreeing with French President Francois Hollande at the EU summit beginning tomorrow in Brussels. Good cooperation “doesn’t exclude differing positions,” Merkel said in Chicago during a meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Elsewhere in Europe, Greece is preparing for June 17 elections following an inconclusive May 6 ballot.

The yen remained weaker as the Bank of Japan starts a two-day meeting today amid speculation it will boost stimulus measures. Japanese Finance Minister Jun Azumi said in Tokyo today he regards highly the steps taken by the central bank since February. The BOJ expanded its asset-purchase program in February and April. Japan probably had a trade shortfall of 470.8 billion yen ($5.9 billion) last month after a revised deficit of 84.5 billion yen in March, according to the median estimate in a Bloomberg survey before the data tomorrow.
