Economist Chris Rupkey at BTM-UFJ says Jun payrolls could be +150k - reason is wet weather and Japan supply disruptions might have depressed May jobs.
Dow -38.94 at 12543.83, Nasdaq +0.42 at 2816.45, S&P -4.98 at 1334.69

In the wake of Portugal's downgrade by Moody's, the dollar has extended its advance so that it is now up 0.6% against a basket of major foreign currencies. That makes for a fresh session high.
The Dow recently set a new session low, but neither the Nasdaq nor the S&P 500 confirmed the move. In fact, the Nasdaq only came in contact with the flat line, but found support there.

Standard & Poor's doesn't expect a double dip in developed markets. "We believe emerging markets will continue to be a major driver of global growth."
Moody's downgraded Portugal's long-term government bond ratings to Ba2 from Baa1 and assigned a negative outlook.
American focus:

The dollar advanced versus most of its major counterparts on speculation China’s efforts to tame inflation will cool growth and damp demand for riskier assets.
The euro dropped for the first time in seven days versus the greenback after Moody’s Investors Service said banks rolling over Greek bonds into new securities may incur impairment charges.
“We had this insipient risk recovery last week, and it has all of a sudden stalled,” said Richard Franulovich, a senior currency strategist at Westpac Banking Corp. in New York. “Moody’s has been in the news saying that the recent rollover plan constitutes a credit event. We thought Greece was taken off the table last week, and it’s still there, so that’s taken the steam out of the euro.”
The Swiss franc, a traditional haven from economic turmoil, rallied against all of its major counterparts.
China is likely to raise rates to combat consumer-price increases that may have reached 6.2 percent in June, said the Economic Information Daily, citing market estimates. That followed comments by the People’s Bank of China yesterday that the country still faces “large” inflationary pressure.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index fell 0.3 percent after rallying 5.6 percent last week. Yields on Treasury 10-year notes dropped five basis points to 3.13 percent today.
The Australian dollar weakened against the greenback after the South Pacific nation’s central bank left borrowing costs unchanged. The Reserve Bank of Australia kept its cash rate target at 4.75 percent for a seventh straight meeting as signs of slower growth from Europe to China dimmed prospects for an acceleration in hiring at home.

CIBC on US factory orders

Techs on gold:

Currently gold prices hold at $1511.50/oz with trading range is limited by $1493.40 - $1511.91. For any kind of upward momentum the gold will need to vault last week's highs near $1513.71 and then the 55-day MA ($1518 on Tuesday). Edel Tully from UBS says "rather than rallying now, gold is likely to stay rangebound either side of $1500."

09:00     EU(17)     Retail sales (May) adjusted Y/Y     -1.9%    -0.6%    1.1%

The pound strengthened against the euro and the dollar after a report showed a measure of U.K. service PMI exceeded economists’ forecasts in June
A gauge of U.K. services growth based on a survey of companies rose to 53.9 from 53.8 in May. The median forecast was for a decline to 53.5.
“The focus from the market right now is very much on the growth numbers, and positive data outcomes will tend to be supportive of sterling,” said Chris Scicluna at Daiwa Capital Markets Europe.
The pound has slumped this year as Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron’s austerity measures to shrink the budget deficit crimp growth and inflation squeezes incomes at the fastest pace since the 1970s. Efforts to eliminate the bulk of the fiscal shortfall by 2015 involve the deepest spending cuts since World War II and more than 300,000 state-employee job losses.
The Bank of England will keep its main rate unchanged at 0.5% on July 7. Investors are betting the central bank won’t raise borrowing costs until after next May.

CSM NV slumped more than 9 percent, its largest drop in 2 1/2 years, after saying first-half earnings will decline because of higher raw-material costs.

The U.S. dollar recovered on short covering on Tuesday while Asian stocks retreated from a one-month high.
The euro weakened, though it still held within striking distance of a one-month high against the U.S. dollar before a much expected interest rate increase on Thursday.

The Australian dollar languished near the day's lows after the central bank held interest rates at 4.75%, as widely expected. RBA also said the economy was unlikely to grow as strongly in 2011 as it first thought.
The RBA's dovish comments led to a short squeeze in the U.S. dollar.
The RBA's accompanying statement bolstered expectations for a moderate slowdown in Asia.
"It's a classic short squeeze in the dollar, but I don't think the recent 'risk-on' trend has changed because of this sharp move," said Tsutomu Soma, a senior manager at Okasan Securities. "Both the Aussie and euro were overbought, so many players simply wanted to lock in profits made on those rallies," Soma said.
