Dollar off highs vs. yen after Yellen comments, euro rises

Investing.com –

Investing.com – The dollar backed off more than two-week highs against the yen on Monday after Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen struck a dovish tone on the economic outlook, while disappointing U.S. manufacturing data also weighed.

USD/JPY was last up 0.26% to 103.09, off session highs of 103.44.

The dollar trimmed gains against the yen after Ms. Yellen said that “considerable slack” still remained in the labor market and reiterated that the Fed’s commitment to economic stimulus will still be needed for some time. The remarks came during the Development conference in Chicago.

Separately, a report showed that manufacturing activity in the Chicago region expanded at a slower rate than forecast in March, as new orders fell.

The Chicago purchasing managers’ index fell 55.9 from 59.8 in February. Analysts had expected the index to tick down to 59.0.

EUR/USD was up 0.23% to 1.3783, after falling to session lows of 1.3724 earlier.

The single currency briefly touched session lows after preliminary data showed that the annual rate of inflation in the euro zone fell to the lowest level since November 2009 in March.

Consumer inflation in the euro area slowed to 0.5% this month from 0.7% in February, undershooting expectations for a reading of 0.6%. The European Central Bank targets an inflation rate of just under 2%.

The report showed that core inflation rose 0.8% in March, in line with forecasts, but down from 1.0% in February.

The weak data fuelled expectations that the European Central Bank could take steps to bolster the fragile recovery in the euro area at its upcoming policy meeting on Thursday. Last month the central bank left rates on hold, but indicated that it was prepared to take decisive action if the inflation outlook continued to deteriorate.

The euro fell to one-month lows against the dollar last week after ECB officials indicated that they are considering fresh policy options to stave off the risk of deflation in the region.

However some investors expect the ECB to leave monetary policy on hold on Thursday, after Bundesbank head Jens Weidmann said Saturday that the euro zone is not in a deflationary cycle, and that the slowdown was due in large part to temporary factors, such as falls in food and energy prices.

The pound rose to more than two-week highs against the dollar, with GBP/USD up 0.21% to 1.6673, while USD/CHF was down 0.38% to 0.8833.

NZD/USD was up 0.22% to 0.8673, holding just below the two-and-a-half year peaks of 0.8696 struck on Friday. The Australian dollar was trading close to four month highs, with AUD/USD climbing 0.25% to 0.9270.

Meanwhile, USD/CAD was down 0.19% to 1.1036 after official data on Monday showed that Canada’s economy expanded 0.5% in January, ahead of expectations for growth of 0.4%.

On a year-over-year basis, Canada’s economy expanded 2.5% in January, following growth of 2.4% in the preceding month.

The US Dollar Index, which tracks the performance of the greenback versus a basket of six other major currencies, slid 0.16% to 80.22.

Abu Risha Condemns Bridge Attacks

By John Lee.
Sheikh Ahmed Abu Risha, head of one side of the anti-Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham “Sons of Anbar” movement has condemned a series of attacks on bridges in the province trying to cut it off from the rest of Iraq.
The Sheikh was typically defiant in his recent statement:
“The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has lost the battle in Anbar and is trying to move its evil acts to other provinces by implementing bombings in several Iraqi cities.*The ISIS aims to separate Anbar province from other parts of Iraq, in order to make it a base for evil and murder.The determination of the sons of Anbar province and the security forces of the local police and the Iraqi army heroes foiled this scheme.”
The “awakening” (Sahwa) movement headed by his late father Abdul Sattar Abu Risha has splintered into groups which are firmly pro-Maliki and groups which were once working with the US but are now reluctant to work with the Iraqi army and police, leading to a fluid and confusing situation on the ground.
Many Sunnis have continually protested that the armed forces frequently behave in a sectarian manner.
Others claim the Shi’a dominated Iraqi government is controlled by Iran, a fear exacerbated by Maliki’s targeting of political opponents which has included some prominent Sunni leaders and some members of the Sahwa. Close ties between Iran and some Iraqi parties have not helped this perception.
Nonetheless, Maliki has recently tried to win Sunni hearts and minds, pledging to increase the number of Sahwa members integrated into the security forces and increasing government funds for the province.
But some analysts think it may be too late for those that have lost trust in the PM.
The UN estimates that there are already 400,000 displaced people in the province despite the Iraqi Security Forces intentionally holding back from an all out assault on Fallujah, the center of ISIS sympathy in al-Anbar.
The insurgency itself also remains fragmented, including a shaky alliance of neo-Ba’athist groups and members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham, the cross border insurgent group which is fighting to unify Iraq and Syria under a fiercely strict interpretation of Islam. ISIS (formerly al-Qaeda in Iraq) remain a small but highly potent minority group.
For now, the multitude of divisions among Anbaris in the insurgency and Anbaris wanting an end to the crisis means that the situation remains chaotic, with no group of belligerents gaining the upper hand.
Arguably, residents of Ramadi (pictured) where Abu Risha is based typify the extent of division over the way forward for Iraq’s Sunnis. By contrast, Fallujah has been declared by ISIS to be an Islamic state.
For Maliki and the Iraqi electorate, the situation may not be out of hand yet but this simply may not be good enough as the general election draws near. If elections are delayed in al-Anbar, something which now appears likely, then this will in no way help the crisis.

EUR/USD gains as Yellen comments spark dollar selloff

Investing.com –

Investing.com – The dollar slumped against the euro on Monday after Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said earlier that policy will remain loose for some time to come, which sent investors ditching the greenback.

In U.S. trading, EUR/USD was up 0.22% at 1.3782, up from a session low of 1.3724 and off a high of 1.3807.

The pair was likely to find support at 1.3705, Friday’s low, and resistance at 1.3876, the high from March 24.

In her first major speech as Fed Chair, Yellen told the National Interagency Community Reinvestment Conference in Chicago, Illinois, that the U.S. economy still needs monetary support to ensure more sustained recovery.

“I believe it is appropriate for the Federal Reserve to continue to provide substantial help to the labor market, without adding to the risks of inflation, is because of the evidence I see that there remains considerable slack in the economy and the labor market,” Yellen said in prepared remarks of her speech.

The Fed is currently purchasing $55 billion in bonds a month to spur recovery, a monetary policy tool known as quantitative easing that suppresses interest rates to prop up the economy, weakening the dollar as a side effect.

Yellen’s words sent investors reevaluating the pace at which the U.S. central bank will taper its bond-buying program let alone begin hiking benchmark interest rates.

“I think this extraordinary commitment is still needed and will be for some time, and I believe that view is widely shared by my fellow policymakers at the Fed,” Yellen said

Elsewhere, data revealed that manufacturing activity in the Chicago region expanded at a slower rate than forecast in March, as new orders fell.

The Chicago purchasing managers’ index fell 55.9 from 59.8 in February. Analysts had expected the index to tick down to 59.0.

Meanwhile in Europe, the euro zone’s consumer price index slowed to 0.5% this month from 0.7% in February, undershooting expectations for a reading of 0.6%. The European Central Bank targets an inflation rate of just under 2%, and March’s figure was the lowest since November of 2009.

The report showed that core inflation rose 0.8% in March, in line with forecasts, but down from 1.0% in February.

While inflation rates missed consensus forecasts, expectations for the European Central Bank to loosen policy sooner or later have been priced into trading by many investors, which gave the single currency room to shrug off soft consumer inflation numbers.

Separate expectations that the ECB will still remain in a wait-and-see mode at a policy meeting on Thursday due to sentiments that prices are soft but not deflationary supported the euro as well.

The euro was down against the pound, with EUR/GBP down 0.02% to 0.8262, and up against the yen, with EUR/JPY up 0.42% at 142.00.

On Tuesday, the euro zone is to release data on the unemployment rate. Germany is release data on the change in the number of people unemployed, while Spain and Italy are to release reports on manufacturing activity.

In the U.S. the Institute of Supply Management is to publish a report on U.S. manufacturing growth.
