Asian session: The euro maintained losses against most of its major peers

 

 

00:30 Australia CPI, q/q Quarter III +0.5% +0.5% +1,4%

00:30 Australia CPI, y/y Quarter III +1.2% +1.6% +2.0%

01:45 China HSBC Flash Manufacturing PMI (preliminary) October 47.9 49.1

 

The euro maintained losses against most of its major peers before data that may add to evidence Europe’s debt turmoil is weighing on economic growth. Reports today are forecast to show manufacturing and services industries in the euro area contracted for a ninth month and German business confidence hovered close to the lowest since February 2010. A composite index based on a survey of purchasing managers in manufacturing and services industries in the euro area was probably at 46.5 in October, below the 50 level which indicates a contraction, according to the median estimate of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News. While that’s up from 46.1 in September, it follows eight consecutive months of contraction.

The 17-nation currency traded near a one-week low against the U.S. dollar amid investor uncertainty that Spain will seek a bailout.  Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said in the senate yesterday there is a case for easing budget-deficit targets set by the European Union as the recession undermines tax revenue. Rajoy didn’t mention seeking aid even as he praised the European Central Bank’s offer to help lower troubled countries’ borrowing costs. Spain’s 10-year bond yield yesterday jumped 13 basis points to 5.62 percent yesterday.

The Australian and New Zealand dollars advanced after HSBC Holdings Plc and Markit Economics said a preliminary reading of a purchasing managers’ index for China rose to 49.1 in October from 47.9 last month. China is Australia’s biggest trading partner and New Zealand’s second-largest export market. Demand for Australia’s currency was also supported after data showed the nation’s consumer prices accelerated more than estimated in the third quarter, giving the Reserve Bank scope to pause next month in cutting interest rates.


EUR / USD: during the Asian session, the pair traded in the range of $1.2970-90.

GBP / USD: during the Asian session, the pair traded in the range of $1.5935-55.

USD / JPY: during the Asian session, the pair traded in the range of Y79.75-95.
