China’s Shanghai Composite climbed to a 1-1/2 week high and Australia’s S&P 200 stock Index jumped over 2% to an 8-1/2 month high after the RBA cut its benchmark rate by 25 bp to a record low 1.75% and RBA Governor Stevens said that recent price data suggests a “lower outlook for inflation.”

MARKET COMMENTS

June E-mini S&Ps (ESM16 -0.63%) this morning are down -16.75 points (-0.81%). Monday’s closes: S&P 500 +0.78%, Dow Jones +0.66%, Nasdaq +0.92%. The S&P 500 on Monday closed higher on reduced interest rates concerns after the Apr ISM manufacturing index fell -1.0 point to 50.8, weaker than expectations of -0.4 to 51.4, which may keep the Fed from raising interest rates. Stocks were also boosted by the drop in the dollar index to a new 1-1/4 year low, which makes U.S. exports more attractive and boosts the value of overseas earnings.

June 10-year T-note prices (ZNM16 +0.36%) this morning are up +17 ticks. Monday’s closes: TYM6 -11.50, FVM6 -6.50. Jun T-notes on Monday closed lower on the rally in stocks and on price pressures after the Apr ISM prices-paid sub-index surged by +7.5 points to a 19-month high of 59.0.

The dollar index (DXY00 -0.38%) this morning is down -0.349 (-0.38%) at a new 1-1/4 year low. EUR/USD (^EURUSD) is up +0.0046 (+0.40%) at an 8-1/4 month high. USD/JPY (^USDJPY) is down -0.60 (-0.56%) at a fresh 1-1/2 year low. Monday’s closes: Dollar Index -0.456 (-0.49%), EUR/USD +0.0083 (+0.72%), USD/JPY -0.09 (-0.08%). The dollar index on Monday tumbled to a 1-1/4 year low on technical selling, the weaker-than-expected Apr ISM manufacturing index, and strength in EUR/USD which climbed to an 8-month high after the Eurozone Apr Markit manufacturing PMI was revised upward to 51.7 from 51.5.

June WTI crude oil (CLM16 -0.98%) this morning is down -56 cents (-1.25%). June gasoline (RBM16 -1.63%) is down -0.0305 (-1.95%). Monday’s closes: CLM6 -1.14 (-2.48%), RBM6 -0.0416 (-2.59%). June crude oil and gasoline on Monday closed lower on increased global crude supplies after Iraq reported its Apr crude exports rose +2.1% m/m to 3.36 million bpd, just below November’s record high of 3.365 million bpd. Crude oil prices were also undercut by global demand concerns after the Apr ISM manufacturing index and the China Apr manufacturing PMI were both weaker than expected. Crude oil prices found some underlying support as the dollar index sank to a 1-1/4 year low.
