Economic Data to Provide More Clarity – Aug 14

August 14, 2013

ZEW, the German economic sentiment indicator surged to 42 points showing confidence in economy indicating that the domestic demand is improving, but it did not help the European currency to gain, as US retail sales edged up for 4th consecutive month, though not meeting market expectation, as auto sales was a bit slow. Sentiment about the US economic performance is still positive, hinting that consumers are not hesitating to spend. Previous months retail sales numbers that was revised upwards was also helpful. Surge of US 10-year bond yield to 2.71 pct endorses market view that US economy is on the up trend.
On of the FED non voting official President of FED Atlanta confused the market with his statement on tapering, as he thinks that economy required consistent growth to declare end quantitative easing in September, but is of view that FED can announce slowing down the pace of its asset purchase. I think this should be the proper way of doing it because gradual reduction of asset purchase will give time and space to the market to adjust accordingly. The bottom line is that keep a close watch on the US economic data that will lead to FED’s decision on tapering. So far the data looks reasonable and should not be discomforting for Fed to decide its next line of action.
Today, the release of German GDP data will not prove to be the game changer, but could be responsible to create minor volatility if it deviates form target. With the recent release of positive economic data from Germany, I will not be surprised to see bias on the upside as growth prospect looks better. However, any disappointment will spoil the sentiment and European currency may then suffer.
