ECB members had heated clash over last rate decision

ECB Governing Council members had a confrontational approach over interest rates at their latest board meeting on Thursday, according to German weekly Der Spiegel, citing no sources, the MNI newswire reports. Der Spiegel claims to have obtained insights over the dovish views from ECB chief economist Peter Praet, who proposed to cut the benchmark interest rate by 25 bp in the last meeting, an action that ECB President Mario Draghi would have supported.

However, as MNI reports, "seven board members, mainly from northern European member states, were arguing sharply against a rate cut last week, the magazine reported." Der Spiegel reports German Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann, Dutch central bank governor Klaas Knot as well as ECB Executive Board member Joerg Asmussen, as the most notoriously opposed to it. As is well known, the final decision taken by the board was to unanimously keep the benchmark rate unchanged at 0.5% while providing forward guidance on low rates. Draghi's said that "broad-based weakness in the real economy and subdued monetary dynamics" will keep rates at present or lower levels for an extended period of time.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Market players may prefer to stay neutral today during limited tier one macroeconomic data flow, though a break of our resistance at 1.2852 (R1) would suggest next targets at 1.2879 (R2) and 1.2905 (R3). Downwards scenario: Friday low offers a key support barrier at 1.2805 (S1). Only clear break here would be a signal of possible market easing towards to next targets at 1.2781 (S2) and 1.2757 (S3) in potential.

Upwards scenario: Upside risk aversion is seen above the next resistance level at 1.4923 (R1). Appreciation above it might lead would enable corrective phase, targeting resistive measures at 1.4962 (R2) and 1.4999 (R3) in potential. Downwards scenario: On the other hand, if the pair accelerates on the downside and manage to break our next support level at 1.4853 (S1), it is likely to trigger our next support level at 1.4818 (S2) and 1.4782 (S3) later on today.

Upwards scenario: Uptrend evolvement remains in power. Further appreciation above the resistive barrier at 101.53 (R1) is liable to next intraday targets at 101.81 (R2) and 102.09 (R3). Downwards scenario: Possible retracement action might get more stimulus below the support level at 100.87 (S1). Loss here would suggest next intraday target at 100.58 (S2) and any weakening below it would then face final support at 100.28 (S3).

Troika approves next disbursment to Greece

Troika officials struck a deal with Greece this Monday, allowing the debt-laden country to receive its next tranche of funds, totalling The money, totaling 6.8bn euros ($8.7bn). The troika of the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will be responsible to make the funds available end of the month. Eurozone finance ministers indicated earlier today that 2.5bn euros would come from the eurozone rescue fund and 1.5bn euros, while the European Central Bank will contribute with another 1.5bn euros. It is thought that an additional 500m euros from both the EZ rescue fund and the ECB will be transferred in October. The IMF will add the remaining 1.8bn euros.

The loans are subject to Greece showing a committal approach towards the country's fiscal path, with the Troika demanding further cuts and a faster implementation of its reform programme, one that has brought the country to its knees. Despite so, the Troika continues to underline the slow progress seen so far, as the country continues to struggle through an era of depression.

Downwards scenario: Failure to establish positive bias today would shift our focus to the next support level at 1.2844 (S1).

S&P downgrades Italy to BBB, outlook negative

Ratings Agency Standard & Poor's decided to downgrade Italy on Tuesday, cutting the rating to BBB from BBB+. According to S&P, this action reflects their view of the effects of further weakening growth on Italy's economic structure and resilience, and its impaired monetary transmission mechanism. S&P also left their outlook at negative, meaning there is at least one-in-three chance that the rating could be lowered again in 2013 or 2014.

The highlights today will be the FOMC Minutes and Bernanke’s Speech and until then I don’t see an awful lot to move things around. The 4 hour charts are showing some minor bullish divergence and we could see the odd bounce but the dailies continue to point lower and I suspect that the low 1.2700 area will soon be tested. In the meantime leave room for bounces as the 4 hour charts unwind. We will be adding to our shorts if we see a bounce into the 1.2850/1.2900 in the coming session. German CPI, US FOMC Minutes, Wholesale Inventories, Bernanke Speech Economic data highlights will include: German CPI, US FOMC Minutes, Wholesale Inventories, Bernanke Speech

ECB Monthly Report: Interest rates could be reduced further

The ECB signalized in its July Monthly Report that interest rates could be reduced further, should the price stability outlook warrant it. The recently introduced forward guidance was also included: “The Governing Council expects the key ECB interest rates to remain at present or lower levels for an extended period of time.” There was also some clarification of its time horizon: “The extended period of time over which the Governing Council currently expects the key ECB interest rates to remain at present or lower levels is a flexible horizon which does not pre-specify an end-date but is conditional on the Governing Council’s assessment of the economic fundamentals that determine underlying inflation."

Furthermore, the Council pointed to recent improvements in Eurozone sentiment indicators which suggest a gradual recovery of the economy later this year and in 2014. To support it, the ECB is prepared to maintain the accomodative monetary policy for as long as necessary. The accomodative policy should prop up domestic demand while the recovery in global demand should boost export growth in the area. Additionally, the Governing Council suggested that “the overall improvements in financial markets seen since last summer should work their way through to the real economy, as should the progress made in fiscal consolidation.”

Fitch downgrades France to AA+ from AAA

Fitch Ratings has downgraded France to AA+ from AAA on Friday, keeping a stable outlook on the country's debt. Fitch, which joins S&P and Moody's in removing the country's AAA rating, cited the high level of the French government indebtedness as one of the main reasons of the downgrade. Fitch expects France's general government debt to peak at 96% of GDP in 2014 and decline only gradually over the long term, remaining at 92% in 2017. "The only 'AAA' country with a higher debt ratio is the U.S. (AAA/negative), which has exceptional financing flexibility and debt tolerance afforded by the preeminent global reserve currency status of the U.S. dollar," Fitch said in a statement.

Standard & Poor's has affirmed on Friday Germany's top triple-A sovereign credit rating, with a stable outlook. The rating agency justified its decision saying that “Germany has a highly diversified and competitive economy with a demonstrated ability to absorb large economic and financial shocks.” As far as the outlook on the long-term rating is concerned, S&P's decision to keep it 'stable' reflects their view that: “Germany's public finances and strong external balance sheet will continue to withstand potential financial and economic shocks.”

Dovish ECB, soft US retail sales balance each other out. Waiting on Bernanke – again!

Dovish talk from the ECB undermined the Euro before the softer than expected US Retail Sales turned things around, sending the US dollar slightly lower. Markets are likely to be on hold ahead of Bernanke’s testimony to Congress although equities and commodities both looks solid in the short term. A mix of data out of the EU and the US could make it a bit choppy later in the day. Before then, the RBA Minutes will be Asia’s focus.

The Euro has had a choppy but mostly uninteresting session, hanging close to 1.3000 as the northern hemisphere summer doldrums look to be well upon us. Early dovish comments from the ECB’s Hansson, indicating that there is room to cut rates further and that negative interest rates should not be ruled out helped push the Euro lower early in the session, before a bit of a turnaround following the softer than expected US retail Sales, that saw the dollar come under some pressure of its own. Fitch downgraded the EFSF – European Financial Stability Facility- to AA+ from AAA, which, following on from the recent France downgrade, had precisely no effect on the Euro at all.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Next barrier on the upside lie at 1.3092 (R1). Surpassing of this level might enable our initial target at 1.3132 (R2) and any further gains would then be limited to last resistive structure at 1.3171 (R3). Downwards scenario: On the other hand, clearance of our support at 1.3049 (S1) is required to determine negative intraday bias and enable lower target at 1.3010 (S2) and then any further market depreciation would suggest final support at 1.2969 (S3).

Downwards scenario: Possible downside expansion is protected by support level at 1.5086 (S1), break here would put bullish oriented traders on hold.

Fed's Bernanke: Asset purchases not 'on a preset course'

According to the prepared text of Chairman Ben Bernanke's speech, to be delivered later today during his Semiannual Monetary Policy Report to the Congress, the pace of the Federal Reserve's bond purchases is not 'on a preset course', as it depends on the current economic and financial situation. The Fed head assured that signs of recovery are visible in the US labor market, but that “the jobs situation is far from satisfactory, as the unemployment rate remains well above its longer-run normal level.” He also pointed out that inflation is still below the Fed's 2% target. That is why “a highly accommodative monetary policy will remain appropriate for the foreseeable future.”

As far as QE is concerned, Bernanke stressed that the decision on when the tapering should begin depends on the Fed's assessment of the US economic outlook. Should economic data improve earlier than forecasted and inflation rise towards the objective, a reduction could be carried out sooner. Otherwise, “the current pace of purchases could be maintained for longer.” According to Rob Carnell from ING: ”This speech neither contradicts nor supports the notion that the taper begins in September. The taper might begin then. But as we have written elsewhere, there are quite good reasons why it may occur somewhat later. Not that it really matters all that much anyway – given that the Fed funds decision is one that will be taken independently from QE.”

Clearance here is required to open the way towards to interim target at 1.3050 (S2) and any further price regress would then be targeting 1.3019 (S3).

Bernanke: Too early to say when tapering will start

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke testified before the Congress for a second day on Thursday. While the introductory statement remained unchanged, investors didn't get new insights from the Q&A session before the Senate Banking Committee. When asked about the time the Fed will scale back its monthly bond-buying programme, he said "it's way too early to make any judgment" as the Fed wants to see sustainable improvement in labor markets. Bernanke also said he has broad support for his policy outlook through the Fed leadership. "We've not changed policy. We are not talking about tightening monetary policy", Bernanke said. He added that none of what the Fed has communicated about winding down its bond purchases implies tighter policy in the foreseeable future. Among other remarks, Bernanke said he doesn't see risks to financial stability from student debt, though he said it could have negative economic consequences in the long-term. "It is not particularly likely to cause any sharp instability of the sort we saw in the last few years", Bernanke said Thursday.

Portugal's president backs coalition government

Portugal president Aníbal Cavaco Silva on Sunday supported the current coalition government, saying they should stay till end of the term, ending weeks of political crisis in the country, which had led international actors to even threaten the country's €78 billion international bailout. "As the national salvation compromise was impossible to achieve, I consider that the best alternative solution is for the present government to remain in its functions, with reinforced guarantees of cohesion and solidity of the coalition, until the end of its term (in 2015)" Mr. Cavaco said. Further headlines were provided by Bloomberg, with Cavaco saying he "laments talks on ‘National salvation’ agreement failed to produce results", and that "agreement will eventually be imposed by reality in future."

Session in the Asia-Pacific to start the week opened with an early move higher in Yen that soon corrected to break even before Tokyo started trading, but then as soon as traders hit the floor the Yen rose again to as high as 99.57 of the USD/JPY pair. The Yen move became in broad USD weakness following Japan PM Abe's upper house win, taking EUR/USD to session highs at 1.3170, AUD/USD to 0.9228, and Cable to 1.5298. Nikkei index opened in the 14750 region but soon eased to break even shy of 14600. Gold and Silver broke higher above key $1300 resistance in case of Gold, while Oil remained above the $108 handle. Local share markets traded mixed with China mainland and Japan in the negative, while Australia and Korea still in the positive.

MARKET ANALYSIS - Intraday Analysis

Upwards scenario: Apparently market sentiment is positive for the EURUSD as both moving averages are pointing up. Clearance of our resistance at 1.3178 (R1) would clear the way for an upside penetration towards to next visible targets at 1.3201 (R2) and 1.3224 (R3). Downwards scenario: Prolonged movement below the supportive measure at 1.3130 (S1) is required to activate downtrend expansion. Next aim on the way would be mark at 1.3105 (S2) and then final target could be met at 1.3081 (S3).

Downwards scenario: On the other hand, depreciation below the technically important support level at 1.5246 (S1) might lead to the correction formation on the short-term perspective.

Bank of Japan stands ready to inject further stimulus

The Bank of Japan is prepared to provide further easing to the economy should signs fail to emerge about an economic recovery, including an inflation mandate of 2% in the short-run. According to BoJ board member Takehiro Sato, more stimulus is a real possibility if the economy's recovery is threatened, naming a few risks such as slower-than-expected growth in China. "A high degree of uncertainty remains concerning the global economy, and I see risks to the economic outlook as somewhat tilted to the downside," Sato said.

"The BOJ does not exclude the implementation of additional measures and will not hesitate to fine-tune its policies flexibly when unexpected tail risks materialise," Sato added in a speech to business leaders in ***ushima, northeastern Japan. Sato also said the 2% inflation should be seen as a flexible target, subject to change in the 2-year projections, a timeframe which had been repeatedly mentioned by BOJ governor Haruhiko Kuroda in past meetings. "If the inflation rate is projected to stabilise within a certain range, with the median being 2 per cent price growth, the main objective of the bank's policy will have been fulfilled," Sato said. Mr Sato, an economist who joined the BOJ board last year, was nonetheless more optimistic about japan’s economy from a year earlier, saying a recovery was "coming into view", presenting a "window of opportunity" to overcome deflation.

Downwards scenario: Though, possibility of correction is high. Price devaluation below the support at 1.5345 (S1) would initiate bearish pressure. On the way our next interim support at 1.5315 (S2) en route to final target at 1.5285 (S3).
