Key Events In The Coming Holiday-Shortened, Very Busy Week
The holiday shortened and very busy week includes the following highlights: [on Monday] US Chicago PMI (expect a small move down to a still-strong level of 62), Euro area flash harmonized CPI (expect a slight fall to 0.40% yoy), UK GFK Consumer Confidence, Japan IP; [on Tuesday] US ISM Manufacturing (expect 56), Construction Spending, and Vehicle Sales, in addition to a host of PMI Manufacturing in various countries, Australia MP Decision (expect on hold with neutral bias), and South Korea exports (expect a modest 1%, vs. consensus at 5.1%); [on Wednesday] US ADP Employment (expect 215K, slightly above consensus), Factory Orders (-0.40%), and UK Construction PMI; [on Thursday] US Non-farm Payrolls (expect 210K, a touch below consensus) and Unemployment (expect 6.30%, in line with consensus and previous), MP Decisions by ECB (expect no change in policy) and Riksbank (expect 25bp cut), in addition to various Services and Composite PMIs; [on Friday] (US holiday) Germany Factory Orders and Sweden IP.
The week is relatively light on policy-maker speeches, with highlights including RBA’s Stevens, in addition to Merkel, Draghi, Schaeuble and Weidmann at a CDU event (on Thursday). Friday is a holiday in the US.
Deutsche Bank has a slighly more streamling breakdown:
- Taking a closer look at this week’s calendar, the data docket starts off with the US Chicago PMI and pending home sales data later today. Ahead of the ECB meeting on Thursday, today’s advance Euroarea CPI print for June will be followed with interest and Bloomberg consensus is expecting no change from May’s 0.5% YoY run rates. In emerging markets, South Africa and Turkey report their latest trade data and Argentina’s dispute with holdout creditors comes to a head with a key payment on restructured bonds due today. Argentina indicated on Friday that it wanted to make payment but the transfer was effectively blocked by a US judge.
- Tuesday will be all about the global manufacturing PMIs and US ISM with perhaps the greatest focus on the official Chinese PMI and the US ISM manufacturing for signs of a pickup in manufacturing activity. Japan reports Tankan business confidence and the Bank of England publishes its minutes from its last Financial Policy meeting in which it decided on new measures to take some of the heat out of mortgage lending. The RBA meets on Tuesday, but no change to policy is expected.
- Yellen takes the stage with a lecture on financial stability at the IMF in Washington on Wednesday. Yellen had some fairly dovish words to say on financial stability at the last FOMC press conference, and one would expect a similar tone on Wednesday. The data docket features ADP employment, US factory orders and Brazil industrial production.
- Thursday will be the key day this week with non-farm payrolls and the ECB meeting. The ECB is widely expected to stay put this month after the announcements at its June meeting, but as always Draghi’s press conference will be important. In terms of June’s payrolls, consensus is for a +215k gain in the headline and for unemployment to remain at 6.3%. The hawks will be watching for signs of wage growth but hourly earnings are expected to drop to a rate of 1.9% YoY from 2.1% in the previous month. Other data on Thursday’s calendar are US trade, jobless claims and the global non-manufacturing PMIs. Turkey’s June CPI will be the key event to watch in EM. US markets shut early on Thursday for Independence Day.
- Friday will be pretty quiet with the week’s major events out of the way and with US markets shut for holidays. German factory orders round off the week’s data docket. Finally Moody’s will publish the result of their review of Belgium and Netherland’s sovereign debt rating on Friday.

- DMs | PMI Manufacturing (Jun): Euro area (F: GS 51.9, consensus 51.9, previous 51.9), France (F: GS 47.8, Previous 47.8), Germany (F: GS 52.4, consensus 52.4, previous 52.4), Italy (Previous 53.2), Japan (F: Previous 51.1), Denmark (Previous 60.2), Norway (GS 50.5, previous 49.8), South Korea (Previous 49.5), Spain (Previous 52.9), Sweden (GS 53.9, previous 54.1), Switzerland (Previous 52.5), UK (Consensus 56.7, previous 57), US (Previous 57.5).
- Euro area | Unemployment Rate (May): Consensus 11.70%, previous 11.70%
- Germany | Unemployment Change (000's) (Jun): Consensus -10K (rate at 6.7%), previous 24K (rate at 6.7%)
- Japan | Tankan Large Mfg Outlook (2Q): Consensus 17, previous 8
- Australia | MP Decision: We expect the RBA to leave the cash rate unchanged (at 2.50%) and retain its neutral policy bias. That said, it has sounded incrementally more
- on the outlook over recent times and we continue to forecast another rate cut this cycle (Sept: -25pb).
- South Korea | Exports YoY (Jun): GS 1.0%, consensus 5.10%, previous (r) -1.00%
- South Korea | CPI YoY (Jun): GS 1.80%, consensus 1.90%, previous 1.70%

- Indonesia | CPI (Jun): Previous 7.30%
- Thailand | CPI YoY (Jun): Consensus 2.51%, previous 2.62%
- Romania | MP Decision: We expect the NBR Board to keep its key policy rate on hold at 3.5%, in line with consensus. However, following recent press reports citing an official source, we think that a cut to minimum RRRs on FX - and possibly also on RON - bank liabilities is likely. In addition, we expect that the NBR will maintain a dovish bias in its communications and see significant risks of a rate cut later in Q3, especially if inflation continues to surprise to the downside.
- Czech Republic | GDP YoY (1Q F): Previous 2.50%
- Peru | CPI MoM (Jun): GS 0.10% (3.40% yoy), previous 0.23% (3.56% yoy)

Wednesday, July 2

- United Kingdom | Markit/CIPS UK Construction PMI (Jun): Consensus 59.8, previous 60
- Canada | RBC Canadian Manufacturing PMI (Jun): Previous 52.2
- Singapore | Purchasing Managers Index (Jun): Previous 50.8
- Poland | MP Decision: While we think the MPC will leave rates on hold (at 2.50%), in line with consensus, we think this meeting will bring a change in communication and the MPC’s bias, that is an end to the current forward rate guidance and a shift to a neutral stance. Afterward, we expect the MPC to remain on hold through 2015H1, but see downside risks to our rate view. Current forward pricing suggests markets expect between one and two 25bp cuts in the next six months.
- Romania | GDP YoY (1Q F): Previous 3.80%
