ASIA/EUROPE FOREX NEWS WRAP

The US Dollar is broadly lower following a weak start to the trading week yesterday, but price action has started to shift from favoring the New Zealand Dollar over its Australian counterpart and the Euro over the British Pound. As the trading day has marched forward, there’s been an increased interest surrounding the Euro as regional bond yields have crept higher.

Typically when European bond yields have moved up (particularly in Italy and Spain), the Euro has suffered. Today, however, yields are not increasing because investors are selling on fear; rather, improving economic growth prospects have reduced the demand for fixed income and boosted demand for riskier assets like stocks (the German DAX is holding near its all-time high set yesterday at 8626.11).

Indeed, signs of a stronger Euro-Zone are emerging, with the ZEW Surveys surging to their best outputs in four years. Here are the figures stoking Euro strength:

- Euro-Zone ZEW Survey: Expectations (SEP): 58.6 from 44.0

- German ZEW Survey: Current Situation (SEP): 30.6 versus 20.0 expected, from 18.3

- German ZEW Survey: Expectations (SEP): 49.6 versus 45.0 expected, from 42.0

Meanwhile, the British Pound is seeing a bout of weakness following the soft CPI report. The report underscores shifting consumer expectations as the Bank of England attempts to keep interest rates pointed lower. Accordingly, if data today proliferates and becomes a trend, there is scope for a short-term, fundamentally based reversal in the EURGBP.

Taking a look at European credit, higher yields across the region (especially in the core) on the back of improving economic data have lifted the Euro. The Italian 2-year note yield has decreased to 1.916% (-4.2-bps) while the Spanish 2-year note yield has increased to 1.689% (+0.5-bps). Similarly, the Italian 10-year note yield has decreased to 4.434% (-1.5-bps) while the Spanish 10-year note yield has increased to 4.407% (+0.2-bps); lower yields imply higher prices.
