US Dollar Rally Stalls as Q2'15 US GDP Brings Mixed Bag

US Dollar Rally Stalls as Q2'15 US GDP Brings Mixed Bag

Talking Points:

- Q2’15 US GDP came in at +2.3% versus +2.5% estimate (annualized).

- EURUSD drops around -30-pips before stabilizing.

- Mixed data comes in after only modestly hawkish FOMC commentary.

Q2’15 US growth ticked higher from Q1’15, but still missed expectations coming in at +2.3% versus the +2.5% estimate set forward by Bloomberg News. Despite the headline miss, the data was overall taken positively, with the prior Q1’15 GDP figure revised up to +0.6% from -0.2% (annualized) following a revision to the statistic bureau’s reporting methodology.

The report, among the other data released at 12:30 GMT, confirmed the view set forth by Federal Reserve policymakers yesterday that the economy is “nearly balanced”: consumer consumption increased; the labor market (per claims data) remains tight; and gauges of inflation continue to lag.

Accordingly, we’re viewing today’s prints as not a sign that the Fed is step closer to raising rates in September, but it should keep the compass pointed in that direction and keep at least a Q4’15 rate hike on the table (in reaction to the data, market measures of interest rate expectations have continued to price in October to December as the most likely period for the Fed’s first rate hike, something that started developing post-FOMC yesterday).

Here's the data moving USD-pairs this morning:

- USD Gross Domestic Product (2Q A): +2.3% versus +2.5% expected, from +0.6% (revised higher from -0.2%) (annualized).

- USD Personal Consumption (2Q A): +2.9% versus +2.7% expected, from +1.8% (revised lower from +2.1%) (annualized).

- USD Core PCE (2Q A): +1.8% versus +1.6% expected, from +1.0% (revised higher from +0.8%) (annualized).

- USD Initial Jobless Claims (JUL 25): 267K versus 270K expected, from 255K.

- USD Continuing Claims (JUL 18): 2262K versus 2205K expected, from 2216K (revised higher from 2207K).

US Dollar Rally Stalls as Q2'15 US GDP Brings Mixed Bag

Upon the release of US GDP data and prior revisions, the US Dollar initially jumped higher – particularly against the Euro. GDP, considered one of the more significant detractors from the US Dollar in recently months, provoked a fickle response in EURUSD, with a rebound after a plummet in the 1-minute candlestick at 12:30 GMT. EURUSD has recovered since finding support at $1.0925, setting a fresh low on the back of the GDP data. The pair was trading at $1.0948 at the time of writing.
