The Dollar was generally UNCH against its peers, with the DXY seeing session highs above the 106 level early on in the session amid dovish-leaning commentary from Fed Chair Powell, noting the disinflation trend shows signs of resuming.

However, the index saw another bout of strength in wake of the hotter-than-expected JOLTS.

Nonetheless, DXY swiftly erased any gains post-data, with attention on a deluge of US data on Wednesday, given the July 4th market holiday.
The data includes, ADP, initial jobless claims, challenger layoffs, ISM Services, and factory orders.

The Euro was flat against the Buck with the recent relief rally which sparked from France’s RN party obtaining a lesser majority than thought in the 1st round of elections, taking a pause.

EZ supercore Inflation Y/Y was slightly hotter-than-expected at 2.9% (exp. 2.8%), while the rest of the report was in line, with analysts at Citi noting that the sticky core CPI is becoming a concern for the ECB.

The region saw multiple ECB speakers, with slight divergences between views on the interest rate path in 2024; Centeno expects a few more rate cuts this year; Kazaks expects one or two further cuts, and is consistent with the baseline scenario; Simuks and Wunsch appear to back two further rate cuts; meanwhile, Maklouf said he is comfortable with expectations of another interest rate cut, but two cuts are probably going a little too far.

Attention will remain on Sintra as the event wraps on Wednesday, with Cippolone, Guidnos, Lane, and Knot still to speak.

Data on Wednesday consists of Final HCOB’s PMIs for France, Italy, Germany, and the Eurozone.
