Dollar, Yen Sink as Spain Secures Bailout and Chinese Exports Rise

Dollar, Yen Sink as Spain Secures Bailout and Chinese Exports Rise

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points

  • Spain Secures 100 Billion EU Bailout to Recapitalize Banking Sector
  • Chinese Exports Unexpectedly Accelerate, Denting Slowdown Fears
  • Dollar, Yen Vulnerable as S&P 500 Futures Point to Risk-On Mood

The US Dollar and Japanese Yen began the week sharply lower amid a broad-based recovery in risk appetite that sapped demand for the go-to haven currencies. The MSCI Asia Pacific regional benchmark equity index rose 1.9 percent, lifted by news that Spain successfully lobbied for a €100 billion EU aid package to recapitalize its banking sector.

The announcement downgrades the possibility of a credit squeeze in the event that a Spanish lender folded. The apparent absence of added austerity measures attached to the terms of the bailout reinforced the risk-on mood, hinting it will not compound Spain’s already deep recession and contribute to Eurozone-linked headwinds battering global output at large.

A supportive set of Chinese Trade Balance figures likewise amplified chipper sentiment trends, showing exports grew at the fastest pace in three months. The outcome hinted that the world’s second-largest economy and its top exporter may not be facing as deep of a demand slump as has been feared at the hands of the Eurozone recession.

Looking ahead, S&P 500 stock index futures are pointing firmly higher, hinting haven currencies will likely remain under pressure against their major counterparts. The economic calendar is relatively uneventful in Europe and empty in US hours, suggesting that little stands to disrupt established momentum in the near term (at least as far as scheduled event risk is concerned).
