    Timing, not size, is the Fed's focus
    There is some speculation that when the Fed eventually increases rates, a smaller increase than the expected 25 basis points may occur. However, this would be the first in history this would happen and is unlikely. While the increase is expected to be 25bps, it is still difficult to say whether they will move in September or December.

    Thanks for the kind words, Mr. Goldfinger. Such high praise is difficult to live up to but always worth trying for.

    US durable goods orders rebound 3.4% in June:

    Orders for durable goods, including aircrafts and vehicles, rose 3.4% m/m last month to more than offset the 2.1% drop in May (revised from -1.8%). The consensus expectation of 3.2% was not far off the mark.
    If you exclude the volatile transportation sector then orders rose a more modest 0.8% vs. 0.5% expected. However, May was revised lower to -0.1% from +0.5%.

    Capital goods orders, which serves as a proxy for future investment, rose 0.9%, nearly double the 0.5% expected, but again the revision was negative (to -0.4% from +0.4%). Capital goods shipments, a proxy for present investment, dropped 0.1% vs. +0.6% expected while May was revised down to -0.3% from +0.3%.

    Overall a much more mixed report than the headline reading of 3.4% suggests. EURUSD has not moved much on the release.
