    3 Numbers: German GDP and Ifo sentiment slow down, US CPI
    Today's data releases are not among the most important ones, as the German GDP and Ifo business climate are more or less old news. However, the GDP contributions could reveal whether domestic demand and investment are picking up, which would be a welcome shift from the current export-led model. In the US, consumer prices tell us what we already know – no inflation as of yet, but does it really matter to the Fed?

    China's central bank action less stimulating than the Fed's

    Bloomberg
    Don't expect China's stimulus to have the same effect as that of the US or Europe's, writes Bloomberg's Simon Kennedy. According to UBS economists, for one thing, China’s stimulus has so far proved weaker than that of the Fed or ECB, with UBS noting money growth is still not rising aggressively and interest rates adjusted for inflation only falling modestly even after three reductions in six months. The stimulus is also unlikely to reduce the cost of risk as much as similar actions did elsewhere, says UBS.

    New Zealand
    It looks like we will see a steady-as-she-goes monetary policy statement from the Bank of Japan tomorrow. Having moved past the point of no return they have no choice but to stay the course. Japan’s bond market yields will stay down and the interest rate spread in favour of the USD slowly widen, suggesting upside potential in USDJPY.

    Chicago Fed says no hike likely until 2016

    CNBC
    Investors the world over have spent the first part of 2015 speculating about the timing of the US Federal Reserve's widely expected interest rate hike. The move, which would signal a push for policy normalisation in the world's leading economy, was initially expected to occur this summer but a raft of poor data prints have led many to expect a delay. This narrative was helped along by Chicago Fed president Charles Evans today, who told reporters that the chances of a rate hike this calendar year appear slim. "Inflation is too low," said Evans, adding that "it likely will not be appropriate to begin raising the Fed funds rate until some time in early 2016". According to CNBC, however, Fed chair Janet Yellen still maintains that "an interest rate hike will be appropriate some time this year, although the exact timing is up for debate".

    3 Numbers: BoE minutes to provide clarity, US mortgages, 10-Year yield
    Today's minutes from the Bank of England's last monetary policy meeting will be widely read as the market looks for perspective around what could be a new phase of challenges for the central bank. Meanwhile, across the Atlantic, questions are being raised about the housing market following a string of weak reports – despite the pace of new residential construction rebounding sharply in April, while the 10-year yield is likely to stick to a tight range until fresh macro data provides a clearer forecast.

    Negative fundamental and technical outlook for NZDUSD

    Negative fundamental and technical outlook for NZDUSD
    The arguments for a sharp sell-off in NZDUSD are slowly building and the tipping point will be a policy rate cut by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, possibly as early as June 11. However, the USD side of the cross must co-operate, or at least not get in the way.
