EUR/USD Recoups Earlier Losses After July US Confidence Misses

THE TAKEAWAY: USD U. of Michigan Consumer Confidence (JUL P) > 83.9 versus 84.7 expected, from 84.1 > EURUSD BULLISH

With US equity markets falling back from their recent highs in June, US consumers became slightly less optimistic regarding the state of the economy in early-July, per the most recent release of the U. of Michigan Consumer Confidence survey. The preliminary July gauge fell from 84.1 to 83.9, only a modest miss, and the first miss of the year.

Notably, the Economic Outlook subcomponent fell to 73.8 from 77.8, a sign that the Federal Reserve’s signaled policy shift (towards tapering QE3) has already had a real impact on the economy: US Treasury yields have endured their fastest rise since 1994. Accordingly, with mortgage rates jumping the past several weeks, consumers’ views on the housing market – and thus the broader economy – has slightly soured.
