The USD finally regains some legs after three consecutive days of weakness.The Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index (Ticker: USDOLLAR) gains +39 (+0.36%) to $10786 at the time of writing. The dollar was certainly helped by the strongest New Home Sales data since January: +8.3% June m/m actual; +1.7% Bloomberg News survey expected.

In Europe, various countries reported PMI data better than expectations. The Eurozone PMI Composite (JUL) came in at 50.4 versus the Bloomberg News survey consensus of 49.1. Germany and France both reported PMI Manufacturing numbers above Bloomberg News survey expectations.

Lastly, data from China disappointed. The HSBC Flash Manufacturing PMI missed Bloomberg News survey expectations: 47.7 July actual; 48.2 expected; 48.2 prior.

Bond markets are showing violent declines today. These moves are most pronounced in North America and Europe. 10YR government bond yields trade as follows: US +7.9bps (+3.15%) to 2.584%; Germany +9.7bps (+6.26%) to 1.646%; Italy +0.0bps (+0.00%) to 4.363%; Singapore +6.3bps (+2.64%) to 2.444% at the time of writing.

Global equities trade mixed, with Europe strongly outperforming: S&P -0.12%; Euro Stoxx +1.05%; FTSE +0.31%; Nikkei -0.32%; Hang Seng +0.24% at the time of writing.

Commodities are also mostly weaker, with crude oil falling more steeply than base metals: WTI -1.15%; Brent -1.00%; LME Copper +0.14%; COMEX Copper +0.20%; Shanghai Copper -0.08% at the time of writing.
