    Greece…Still Bankrupt by Stephen Pope

    The Greek economy has made minor improvements

    It will not really exit the bailout programme in August

    A weak government will dither over further reform

    It will, eventually seek yet another credit line

    Greece should be shunned in the capital markets

    Greece is just the canary in the coal mine over sovereign debt.
    The next "great recession" will blow the lid off many a country .... just like Greece....

    The devil is in the data details
    The Devil Wears Prada and, apparently, plays a role in economic statistics. FX markets dismissed the opening salvos of the China/America (ChinAm) trade war as “old news.” They didn’t feel the same way about this morning’s US employment and merchandise trade reports.

    USDCAD re-energized bull trend; USDJPY bull breakout risk

    A more hawkish tone from the Fed alongside global trade war concerns have seen a return of US$ strength through mid-June.
    In our report here from 28th May we highlighted the USDCAD shift to an intermediate-term bull trend, which is now fully re-energized.
    For USDJPY we currently see an intermediate-term range theme defined as 111.08 to 108.08, but with a strong bias for a bull breakout above 111.08.

    US Wrap Part 2 Economic data and trade fears flogged the Canadian dollar. USDCAD opened at 1.2927, dropped to 1.2861 and rallied back to 1.2961 at the close.

    A steep narrowing in the Merchandise trade deficit to $1.9 billion from $3.9 million, led by a surge in exports sent USDCAD tumbling. A surprise increase in US weekly crude inventories sparked a rally.

    The rally gained steam after comments from White House Economic Adviser Director Larry Kudlow. He warned that trade issues would be on the G7 agenda including bilateral meetings with Canada and France. Reuters spun the story as “US will be taking a hard line on trade.”

    US Wrap: Rumors rock FX

    NY Focus: Rumors (and not the 1977 Fleetwood Mac album) rocked NY FX markets. It was a rollicking trading session that ultimately ended with rates little changed from the opening levels.

    Right after breakfast, there were reports that President Trump would pull out of Nafta just before the G-7 meeting in Canada, on June 7. President Trump has been advocating bilateral deals, and today, National Economic Council director Larry Kudlow repeated Trump's demands. Around the same time, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn opined that the time to get a new Nafta deal in 2018, had passed.

    USDCAD bounced between 1.2948 and 1.3060 and closed at 1.2975. USDMXN rallied from 20.2010 to 20.4665.
