Daily Afternoon Report 29.06.2015

The dollar remained broadly higher against a basket of other major currencies on Monday, as concerns over a potential Gree default continued to weigh on sentiment although an intervention by the Swiss National Bank limited the greenback’s gains EUR/USD was down 0.42% to 1.1116, after falling to lows of 1.0955 earlier in the session, while EUR/CHF slid 0.65% to trade at 1.0366. The euro found some support after SNB Chairman Thomas Jordan said Monday the bank had intervened “in order to stabilize the markets,” which were thrown into turmoil after Greece announced an emergency bank shutdown. The Greek government ordered an emergency bank shut down on Sunday night and the central bank moved to impose capital controls as the banking system neared insolvency after deposit outflows accelerated over the weekend. Hours earlier the European Central Bank said it would continue providing emergency liquidity assistance to Greece’s banks, but capped emergency funding at current levels. Greece broke off negotiations with creditors on Saturday and in a surprise move Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras called for a referendum to be held on July 5 on whether to accept the terms proposed by lenders for extending the country’s bailout. European finance ministers refused a request from the Greek government to extend the bailout program, set to end on Tuesday, until after the referendum. Athens is due to repaying €1.6 billion to the International Monetary Fund on Tuesday but without a rescue package in place will almost certainly default. The dollar also remained supported after data on Friday showed that consumer sentiment jumped higher this month, bolstering the outlook for higher interest rates. The final reading of the University of Michigan’s consumer sentiment index rose to 96.1 from 90.7 in May and up from the preliminary reading of 94.6. The pound was also lower, with GBP/USD down 0.19% to 1.5719. Data earlier showed that total U.K. net lending to individuals increased by ₤3.1 billion last month, below forecasts for ₤3.3 billion and up from ₤2.9 billion in April. Elsewhere, the dollar was lower against the yen and the Swiss franc, with USD/JPY down 0.84% to 122.82 and with USD/CHF slipping 0.10% to 0.9320. The Australian and New Zealand dollars were steady, with AUD/USD at 0.7663 and with NZD/USD at five-year lows of 0.6846. Meanwhile, USD/CAD added 0.23% to trade at 1.2349. The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, was up 0.14% at 95.73.
