    Iran deal far from a lock: Kerry

    Bloomberg
    Speaking in Vienna on Sunday, US secretary of state John Kerry told reporters than the long-awaited nuclear deal with Iran is far from complete. "We are not yet where we need to be on several of the most difficult issues," said Kerry, adding that "we’re not going to shave anywhere at the margins in order just to get an agreement". The landmark nuclear deal would see Tehran disable its nuclear infrastructure in exchange for the lifting of sanctions – a move that could impact oil prices as Iranian oil floods the market. While Kerry remained hesitant, European officials appeared more optimistic with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini telling journalists that "if a deal can be closed, it is now". Brent crude has declined precipitously in recent days and now trades at $59.25/barrel, well down from the high 60s in early May.

    Rice prices to soar as drought deepens

    Nikkei Asian Review
    Heat waves and drought have gripped South and Southeast Asia as El Nino has taken hold for the first time since 2009. It has brought heavier rainfall to the Americas and a hotter, drier summer to Asia. That is bleak news for rice production and exports as the three nations suffering from the drought – India, Vietnam and Thailand – are also the world's top exporters. The grain is the world's third-biggest crop after sugar cane and corn. Agriculture is feeling the impact of hotter summers. Global rice production fell 0.5% to 741.3 million tonnes in 2014 due to warmer weather, says the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.

    3 Numbers: High hopes for EZ retail, US labour conditions, US services
    Today’s release of the Eurozone's retail PMI for June will provide additional guidance on how the region is faring – with the main challenge likely to be holding on to May's advance. Across the Atlantic, a soft number for the Fed's Labour Market Conditions Index will likely be read as a hint that a September rate hike may not happen, while the ISM for services numbers are expected to show a relatively stable growth rate.

    KVP's Macro Take: Greece heads for the exit gates
    'Oxi'. Greece has voted overwhelmingly to reject the financial lifeline proffered by Europe, choosing to roll the dice on its future rather than submit to more austerity economics. Meanwhile the AUD seems set to post further lows in the year ahead and as for Chinese equities - despite the correction, we haven't seen the end of highs.

    WCU: Grains feel the heat while oil retreats
    Commodities traded higher for a second week with most of the gains driven by a huge grains rally that saw corn and wheat rising close to 10%. The energy sector traded lower with crude oil struggling amid rising US inventories and rig count. Industrial metals traded quietly while precious metals failed to receive a safe-haven boost from the Greek debt debacle.
