Forexlive Americas FX news wrap 3 Jul: USD moves lower helped by weaker ISM data

Trade ideas thread – Thursday, 4 July, insightful charts, technical analysis, ideas

The
Independence Day holiday ahead for the US, where markets will be
closed, sapped a lot of interest from the timezone here today.
Japanese stocks, nevertheless, rose. The TOPIX index hit its highest
ever, climbing above highs last seen in December 1989.

Across
major FX there was little movement. USD/JPY dripped under 161.30 but
has come back to be around 161.45 or so.

From
the Fed, Chicago branch President Goolsbee spoke with the BBC.
Goolsbee expressed concern about the pace at which the labour market
in the US was slowing. Has he got an inkling of a poor employment
report coming up on Friday? We’ll see.

BTC
and ETH lost more ground. There were no obvious fresh catalysts.

In
political news US President Biden met with state Democratic
Governors. The official readout from the meeting is he has their
support to continue. We’ll see on that too. A US media outlet,
meanwhile, posted a covertly recorded video (which I assume was not a
fake, but who knows?) where Trump said, of the debate:

“He
just quit, you know—he’s quitting the race.”

“I
got him out … and that means we have Kamala.”

Ahh politics … is it November yet?

Happy
UK election, and Happy US Independence Day, to those celebrating.
