Talking Points

  • US Dollar Flat, Pound Lagging in Quiet Overnight Trade
  • S&P 500 Index Futures Hint Muted Activity to Continue
  • UK House Prices, Sentix Gauge Top Second-Tier Calendar
  • French, Dutch Bill Sales May Yield Eurozone Crisis Cues

The US Dollar was little changed against its top counterparts in overnight trade as currency markets digested Friday’s sharp burst of volatility in the wake of a better-than-expected US jobs report. A quiet economic calendar reinforced the muted tone. The British Pound narrowly underperformed, down 0.2 percent against its leading counterparts. S&P 500 stock index futures are little change in late Asian trade, pointing to flat risk sentiment trends and hinting the standstill is likely to carry forward in the coming hours.

The docket remains lackluster in European hours, with the Halifax measure of UK House Prices and the Sentix gauge of Eurozone investor confidence rounding out scheduled event risk. France and the Netherlands are due to sell €6.8 and €4 billion in short-term debt, respectively. Traders will keep an eye on average yield and bid-to-cover readings to gauge sovereign stress levels in the region, though the short tenor of the debt on offer is likely to keep the reaction relatively tame.
