DXY Index Turns Higher on Back of Mixed European PMIs

DXY Index Turns Higher on Back of Mixed European PMIs

Christopher Vecchio, CFA, Senior Strategist

Talking Points:

- The final May PMI readings for the Eurozone (and the individual countries) proved to be overall disappointing for the Euro.

- However, out-performance by the May UK Composite and Services PMIs has lifted the British Pound on Tuesday.

- Sentiment for the US Dollar remains mixed following a volatile few days.

The US Dollar (via the DXY Index) staged a late-day recovery yesterday to form a hammer on the daily candle, and is following up that price action with a bullish inside bar day today. However, none of the gains seen by the DXY Index can truly be attributed to the US Dollar itself, as price action overnight has been motivated by developments abroad.

Notably, on the data front, a mixed batch of European PMI figures has led to divergent outcomes for the British Pound and the Euro.

For the former, the May UK Composite and Services PMIs both came in above expectations, adding further credence to the notion that Q1'18 UK GDP was weighed down by inclement weather, and that Q2'18 UK GDP should be better. For the latter, the May Eurozone Composite PMI closed at an 18-month low, suggesting that the slowdown in growth momentum since the start of the year has persisted.

Elsewhere, a slight pullback in US Treasury yields has allowed the Japanese Yen to recover some ground versus the US Dollar, although with the US S&P 500 breaking through its May highs, risk appetite remains well-supported; USD/JPY is only slightly lower on the day.

On balance, losses by the Euro have more than offset gains by the British Pound and Japanese Yen, allowing the DXY Index to rally. Meanwhile, a stronger DXY Index on the day coupled with higher US stocks in the pre-market have proved another difficult trading environment for Gold, which at the time of writing was working on its fourth consecutive day lower.

See the above video for technical considerations in the DXY Index, EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY, EUR/GBP, the S&P 500, and Gold.
