    FX Board: USDJPY breaks free of range

    US new home sales, consumer confidence rise:

    Consumers in the world's largest economy are getting more upbeat about their situation, according to the Conference Board's May report. The headline confidence index rose to 95.4 from 94.3 (revised down from 95.2) beating expectations of 95. While the May report was better than expected, it is worth keeping in mind that the index stood at 103.8 back in January, so there is still some way to go before a new cyclical high is reached.

    In another report we learned that new home sales rose by 6.8% in April, faster than the 5% expected, resulting in 517,000 sales last month vs. 484,000 in March.

    Lastly, the Richmond Federal Reserve released its May manufacturing index, which printed 1 vs. 0 expected and -3 prior as new orders bounced back to 2 from -6 while shipments gained 5 points to -1.
