Daily Market MoversThe following news stories, economic reports, and statistical tables are selected and compiled by founder John F. Gallwas, who has been an active participant in the financial service industry since January of 1958.
SaturdayBB: The gap between yields on Treasury 30-year bonds and five-year notes narrowed to the least since 2009 as uneven economic growth supported demand for longer maturities while Federal Reserve discussions of raising interest rates next year crimped the allure of shorter-term debt.
FridayBB: Orders for U.S. business equipment rose in June after falling the prior month, forming an inconsistent pattern that indicates corporate investment lacks the momentum needed to propel economic growth to a higher level.
BB: The June German business confidence index dropped more than economists predicted to 108.0 vs 109.7 in May, and to the lowest level since October as weaker growth and escalating tensions in Ukraine weigh on the outlook for Europe’s largest economy.
ThursdayBB: the June Euro-area manufacturing and services PMI were higher than expected at 54 vs 52.8 in May, in a sign of confidence that fresh stimulus by the European Central Bank will consolidate a fledgling economic recovery.
WednesdayGallulp: Most Americans are using cost-saving measures to purchase items this summer. A majority have recently bought generic goods and gone online to find the best deal, while fewer have gone shopping for fun or made major purchases.
BB: China's efforts to stimulate the world’s second-largest economy are insufficient so far to achieve the government’s growth target of about 7.5 percent, according to a survey of analysts.
TuesdayBB: June sales of previously owned U.S. homes climbed an eight-month high of 5.04M annual rate, as more listings helped prices cool, luring buyers into the market.
Gallup: Gallup's U.S. Economic Confidence Index has made up the losses from the prior week, and now stands at -15. Americans' views of current and future economic conditions have ticked upward after several weeks with no improvement.
BB: The June CPI was as expected at +0.3%, paced by a jump in gasoline that is now reversing, bolstering Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen’s view that recent increases were temporary.
R: The latest food scandal in China is spreading fast, dragging in U.S. coffee chain Starbucks, Burger King Worldwide Inc and others, as well as McDonald's products as far away as Japan.
MondayBB: Treasury inflation-adjusted yields were near a 14-month low before the CPI report tomorrow that economists said may show the annual increase in U.S. consumer prices held at the fastest pace since 2012.
