August 7, 2014
08:55 EDTThe 14k U.S. initial claims drop to 289k
The 14k U.S. initial claims drop to 289k in the first week of August defied the expected unwind of the July retooling distortions that was presumably evident with the prior 23k pop to 303k (was 302k) from the 279k mid-July cycle-low, as claims appear to be oscillating around tighter levels following the July vehicle sector retooling. Claims are entering August below the already-tight 296k July average, following prior averages of 315k in June and 312k in May. Analysts may see only a small August back-up in the BLS survey reading from the tight 303k figure in July, followed prior BLS figures of 314k in June and 327k in May. Analysts boosted our August payroll estimate to 210k from 200k to leave the figure in line with the 209k July increase and the 214k average rise of the last twelve months. Payrolls face ongoing upside risk from tight claims, a firm producer sentiment and ADP trajectory, solid vehicle assembly rates into August, and an ongoing consumer confidence climb back above mid-2013 levels.

N.Y. FX Outlook: The dollar perked up some in London trade, though is off it best levels overall into the N.Y. open. EUR-USD put in a floor near 1.3365, while USD-JPY rebounded over 102.45, back above Wednesday's pre-selloff levels. Cable was bid up some into the BoE announcement, trading to 1.6860 before easing back to 1.6845 after the Bank remained steady on policy. Eyes turn to the ECB announcement and press conference this morning, where no policy change is expected, though given recently soft incoming EU data, Draghi's words will be parsed carefully at his 8:30 EDT press conference. The U.S. calendar is light, with just weekly jobless claims on deck at 8:30 EDT.

02:20 EDTFX Update: USD-JPY recovered from yesterday's mini-crash
FX Update: USD-JPY recovered from yesterday's mini-crash that was seen after the London close and saw the pair hit a low of 101.78 following a 50 pip crash. The talk was of a carry trade unwind in a risk-off day, reportedly run through a large sell trade in yen futures. Sell-stops were tripped below the prior session low of 102.20. Swings like this used to be common place before the central banks squashed volatility, and the mere fact that the move caused a stir is an indictment of current policy-engineered complacency. USD-JPY is now back in the mid-102s. Elsewhere, AUD-USD was hit to a two-month of 0.9263 following the Australian employment report, which saw the headline come in at -0.3k versus the expected 13.2k gain, while the unemployment rate jumped to 6.4% from 6.0% (median forecast was for unchanged), which is the highest jobless rate since 2002. EUR-USD and other dollar-European pairings were steady. Stock markets remain on a back foot on Ukraine tensions, with the MSCI Asia-Pacific index showing a 0.4% decline and looks set to post its lowest close in six weeks.
