03:05 EDTFX Update: The dollar continued to firm
FX Update: The dollar continued to firm in the wake of set of mostly-encouraging out of the U.S. on Friday, which put a September Fed hide back in the cross hairs. Asian currencies continued to underperform, particularly the Malaysia ringget, which hit a new 17-year low, though the PBoC set the reference rate for the CNY fractionally firmer than Friday to mark a second consecutive trading day of stabilization following last week's three consecutive daily devaluations. The Bloomberg JPMorgan Asia Dollar Index was down for a fifth straight loss. Equity markets in Asia were mixed. USD-JPY was slightly firmer as London markets opening, at 124.39 bid after a narrow range, with Friday's high at 124.45 unchallenged. Japan's Q2 GDP fell a seasonally adjusted 0.4% q/q, below the -0.5% medina forecast, though Q1 was revised up 0.1 percentage point to 1.1%. The data showed weakness to be broad-based, with consumer spending still reeling from last year's sales tax hike, down 0.8% q/q. The data maintains market expectations for more BoJ easing as soon as October. Elsewhere, EUR-USD dipped below Friday's low in making 1.1082. Cable bucked the firmer dollar theme, edging out a near three-week high of 1.5675. AUD-USD was near net unchanged at 0.7375 bid.

13:05 EDTAction Economics U.S. survey results
Action Economics U.S. survey results: It has been another wild week in the markets that has only further clouded the outlook on Fed rate liftoff. While the Survey medians still points to a 25 bp rate hike at the September FOMC meeting, and another 25 bps in December, action is far from a done deal. More than a handful of forecasters believe the Fed will hold off next month, with some seeing no tightening at all this year. Next week's data will not tip the Fed's hand either, with CPI expected to post gains of 0.2% for the headline and core, though they are perhaps outdated due to the plunge in commodities. Housing starts and existing home sales should be little changed. View the survey results.
