    US Wrap: May Ends with a Volley of Tariffs

    NY Focus: President Trump wreaked havoc on financial markets, making for a wild trading session. The US levied 25% tariffs on steel and 10% tariffs on aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union. The Mexican Peso and Canadian dollar got spanked while EURUSD was relatively unscathed. Wall Street closed with losses, oil prices firmed, and gold hovered around the $1,300/oz level.

    This morning’s rash of US economic reports bodes well for a strong Q2 with a couple of Bank economists raising their Q2 growth projections. Chicago May PMI surged to 62.7 from 57.6 in April. Personal Spending rose 0.6%, and Initial Jobless claims were lower than expected.

    Continued-Part 3 USDJPY traders were unhappy with that currency pair ’s failure to crack above 110.00 earlier in Europe. It opened in just above support at 109.60 and continued down to 109.34, undermined by the CPI disappointment. Prices could not get above 109.60, and they closed at the day’s low.

    The commodity currency bloc rallied led by a 0.75% gain in AUDUSD. USDCAD continued to be undermined by high oil prices. NZDUSD gains on the back of broad US dollar weakness did not recoup all of its post-RBNZ statement weakness.

    Friday Focus: Canada is expected to add another 17, 400 jobs and keep the unemployment rate at the 40 year low of 5.8%. A higher than expected result, combined with high oil prices and short-term bearish US dollar sentiment could drive USDCAD to 1.2660.

    Mr.Jakobsen heralds a recession since 2014 , when mkt dips 5%, always a good buying opportunity IMO. And one critical/neutral real opinion redacted within 5min.
