DB hikes June payroll forecast

DB alters June payroll forecast due to the ADP results being much better than expected (+157k pvt in June). DB says "With the public sector shedding on average -25k jobs per month, headline nonfarm payrolls should come in at +175k. Previously, we were forecasting +100k. Our forecast of a one tenth decline in the unemployment rate (to 9.0%) remains intact."

Dow +100.81 at 12726.83, Nasdaq +39.60 at 2873.62, S&P +14.32 at 1353.54

The tech sector, which is the largest by market weight, is up a strong 1.4% at the moment. It is currently led by the likes of Western Digital (WDC 38.59, +1.20) and Seagate Technology (STX 16.92, +0.60), both of which were recently upgraded by analysts at JPMorgan. Not all tech issues are in favor, though; shares of IBM (IBM 176.55, -1.16) are in the red after they were downgraded by analysts at Wells Fargo.

All three major equity averages are at their best levels of the day. Their advance has been steady.

American focus:

The euro stemmed a two-day drop versus the dollar as European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet signaled more interest-rate increases after raising the benchmark to 1.5 percent.
The 17-member currency gained after Trichet said policy makers loosened collateral rules for Portuguese bonds to support local banks.
“We’ve seen a significant turnaround in the euro,” said John McCarthy, managing director of currency trading at ING Groep NV in New York. “In terms of accommodating Portuguese debt, it was seen as a positive and the principal reason we saw the euro rise.”
ECB policy makers increased the target lending rate by a quarter-percentage point.
“Our monetary-policy stance remains accommodative,” Trichet said at a press conference in Frankfurt. “It is essential recent price developments do not give rise to broad-based inflation pressures over the medium term.”
The ECB waived some of its collateral rules to provide a lifeline to Greek banks a year ago. While banks can currently obtain as much money as they need from the ECB for up to three months against eligible assets, including government bonds, policy makers had said they may no longer accept Greek debt as collateral if the country defaults.
Suspending the collateral rules for Portugal “does show that the ECB is willing to maintain liquidity in the market, yet it does expose the ECB to risks should we see haircuts” on defaulted bonds, said Jeremy Stretch, head of currency strategy at Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce in London. “They are trying to be ahead of the game if Portugal’s bonds receive a default rating.”
The dollar dropped against most of its major counterparts as U.S. companies added more workers in June than economists forecast, damping demand for haven assets before the government’s payrolls report tomorrow.
Companies added 157,000 workers last month, ADP Employer Services reported today, surpassing the 70,000 forecast by 36 economists in a Bloomberg News survey. Initial jobless claims fell by 14,000 to 418,000 in the week ended July 2, the Labor Department said today.
Nonfarm payrolls increased by 105,000 in June after an advance of 54,000 in the prior month, according to the median estimate of 83 economists in a Bloomberg News survey before tomorrow’s payrolls report from the Labor Department. The unemployment rate probably stayed at 9.1 percent.

The yen and Swiss franc were the biggest losers among major currencies as stocks and commodities rallied on U.S. employment reports, boosting demand for Brazil’s real and the Canadian dollar.

Pierpont on US data

Pierpont previews Jun jobs (they est +130k), saying the labor mkt "was probably never quite as good as the initial April (jobs) reading nor as soft as the tepid May figure." But jobs cooled in May and the Q is "whether the moderation proves persistent or even worsens." Even if weather and Japan slowed Q2 growth, downside risks persist, they warn.

U.S. stocks were set to extend gains Thursday as investors reacted to a pair of jobs reports that showed stronger-than-expected results.

Economy: Before the bell the U.S. government's weekly report on initial unemployment claims showed that 418,000 people filed for unemployment in the week ended July 2. Economists had expected a total of 425,000 jobless claims last week.
Separately, a report from payroll services firm ADP showed that employers in the private sector added 157,000 workers in June, far exceeding expectations. The ADP was expected to show that employers in the private sector added 60,000 workers in June.
Economists are expecting the Payrolls report to show 120,000 jobs added to payrolls.

11:00     UK     BoE meeting announcement    0.50%    0.50%    0.50%

The euro touched a one-week low as concern that Greece may become the currency region’s first default outweighed prospects for higher interest rates from the European Central Bank.
The euro holds tight as investors considered whether ECB President Jean-Claude Trichet will comment on the central bank’s acceptance of Greek debt as loan collateral in the event of a default. The ECB raised its key rate 25 basis points to 1.5%, as expected.
Today’s conference is “about what the ECB says about rate hikes going forward,” said Paul Robson, a senior foreign-exchange strategist at Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc. “If they say risks to inflation and growth have moved to the downside, the euro would be quite vulnerable. Euro-dollar has had a very tight correlation with rate spreads over the last year, and that’s set to continue.”
The pound slipped against the greenback as the Bank of England left its key rate at a record-low 0.5%. The U.K. central bank also held its bond-purchase program at 200 billion pounds.
The Swiss franc weakened after a report showed inflation accelerated less than expected in June led by higher costs for energy. Consumer prices increased 0.6% from a year earlier, after rising 0.4% in May. Economists had forecast an inflation rate of 0.7%.

EUR/USD printed session high on $1.4350 before held within the range, limited by $1.4270/$1.4320. Later rate resumed decline to $1.4250.
GBP/USD failed to set above $1.6000 and retreated to below the figure - now at $1.5970.

USD/JPY rose to Y80.12 following some consolidation between Y80.90/Y81.00.

The ECB President Jean-Claude Trichet conference is due at 1230GMT.
At 1215GMT, the ADP National Employment Report is due. Last month the unexpectedly soft reading caused some to revise their estimates
lower. The lackluster 54,000 increase in non-farm payrolls justified the  revision. At 1230GMT, initial jobless claims are expecting toll to 420,000 in the July 2 week. Claims have been above 420,000 since the April 30 week. In the July 25 week, a labor analyst said there no special factors
contributing to the decline of 1,000 claims.

Futures point to around 97% chance of a 25bps rate hike today after Trichet last month signalled "strong vigilance". Markets expect Trichet to revert to "monitor closely" in the opening statement, but at the same time say risks to price stability still seen to be on the upside.

11:30
GBP/USD set stable

GBP/USD holds around  $1.5980 followint the interest rate decision from the BOE MPC. Support seen at $1.5965/60, a break to expose the earlier lows at $1.5944, with demand seen in place between $1.5945/35. Resistance remains in place toward $1.6020.

Initial resistance seen at $1530.9/1532.1 (May 25/26 highs) with a break above targets $1552.7/1554/1558 (9-wk resistance line, Daily Boll top, and Jun 22 reversal high). Break under $1519.5/1520.9 opens the way down to $1510.5/1512.7 (5-day MA, 23.6% Fibonacci $1309/1576).

EU focus: Euro retreates ahead of ECB

The euro holds near one-week lows versus the dollar on Thursday as worries about Europe's sovereign debt problems outweighed a widely expected interest rate hike by the European Central Bank.
if anything, a softening in ECB President Jean-Claude Trichet's hawkish stance, or even a lack of more hawkish comments, could further weigh on the euro, traders said.
"If Trichet's comments just underline expectations of gradual tightening in the future, the market may be disappointed and sell the euro," said Katsunori Kitakura, chief dealer at Chuo Mitsui Trust Bank.
Concern that Greece's debt crisis would spread to other highly indebted peripheral euro zone countries flared up this week after Moody's slashed its rating for Portugal to junk status.
Moreover, the Moody's Investors Service has today downgraded the government-guaranteed debt of four Portuguese banks - Caixa Geral de Depositos (CGD), Banco Espirito Santo (BES), Banco Comercial Portugues (BCP) and Banco Internacional do Funchal (Banif).
Still, analysts don't expect the euro to fall too sharply in the months ahead, underpinned by higher interest rates.
The dollar benefited from the euro's woes, rising against a basket of major currencies. The dollar index climbed near 75.00, pulling further away from a one-month low of 74.13 set earlier in the week.
The Australian dollar recovered from a dip to one-week lows after data showed Australian employment rose by more than expected in June.
The number of people employed in Australia rose by 23,400. That was higher than the median estimate for a 15,000 increase. The jobless rate held at 4.9%.

Stocks: Wednesday's review

Japanese stocks advanced for a seventh day, with the benchmark index completing its longest winning streak in two years, as exporters and banks climbed amid easing concern over Europe’s debt crisis and reports signaled stronger economic recoveries at home and in the U.S.
Nippon Paper Group Inc. led increases by producers of cardboard and pulp, rising 5.2 percent today, after saying it will increase prices. Japan Petroleum Exploration Co., the country’s second-biggest oil driller by sales, gained 3.8 percent after crude prices rose. 
Nintendo Co. rose 3.1 percent after a report the game maker is expanding into smartphone games.
The Nikkei 225 (NKY) Stock Average gained 1.1 percent to 10,082.48 at the 3 p.m. close in Tokyo. 
Shares rose as factory production rebounded in May and a report showed companies plan to increase investment in plant and equipment at almost twice the estimated rate this year.
Japanese shares rose after a report on U.S. factory orders suggested manufacturing in the world’s biggest economy is recovering from a slowdown. Orders increased 0.8 percent in May, helping to recover ground lost a month earlier when bookings fell 0.9 percent. Economists predicted a 1 percent gain.

European stocks declined, halting a seven-day rally, as China raised interest rates and Moody’s Investors Service cut Portugal’s credit rating to junk.
Banco Espirito Santo SA (BES) and Banco Comercial Portugues SA (BCP) led Portuguese banks lower, sliding more than 5 percent. 
Carlsberg A/S, the owner of Russia’s biggest brewer, dropped 4.4 percent after a report that the nation may tighten regulation of alcoholic-drink sales. Scor SE (SCR), France’s largest reinsurer, lost 3.1 percent.
In the U.S., the Institute for Supply Management’s index of non-manufacturing businesses decreased to 53.3 in June from 54.6 a month earlier. A reading above 50 signals expansion. The measure was projected to drop to 53.7, according to the median forecast in a survey.
Germany Economy
A separate report in Germany showed factory orders unexpectedly increased in May, led by domestic demand for investment goods such as machinery. Orders, adjusted for seasonal swings and inflation, rose 1.8 percent from April, when they surged a revised 2.9 percent, the Economy Ministry in Berlin said.

US Stocks traded listlessly again yesterday. The lack of action comes after last week's heady advance, but precedes the payrolls report on Friday.
The broad equity market was mired near the neutral line for the second straight session. Participants continue to rest on the laurels of last week's 5.6% gain, which was the best weekly performance for the S&P 500 in about two years.
There weren't many headlines that acted as trading cues for participants this session. The only item on the economic calendar was the ISM Non-Manufacturing Survey for June. It came in at 53.3, which is less than the 54.0 that had been expected, on average, among economists polled by Briefing.com. The reading is also less than the 54.6 that was reported for the prior month.
Today's calendar features the latest weekly initial jobless claims tally and the ADP Employment Report, which is offers a glimpse into the always pivotal official Nonfarm Payrolls Report on Friday. Uncertainty surrounding the jobs report ahead of its release often results in range bound trade.
Tech stocks and industrial issues displayed strength today. Those sectors settled with 0.5% gains, but that was offset by weakness among financial stocks, which collectively shed 0.6%.
Financials were a primary source of weakness for foreign markets in their latest round of trade. More specifically, Commerzbank and Deutsche Bank (DB 58.40, -1.02) weighed down Germany's DAX; BNP Paribas and Credit Agricole undercut France's CAC, and; Britain's FTSE faltered amid weakness in Barclays (BCS 16.15, -0.59) and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS 12.12, -0.45). Banks in China were weak a day after Moody's made it know that loans to local governments were likely understated by about a half trillion dollars. As an aside, China tacked on another 25 basis points to its target interest rate, as had been widely speculated in recent weeks.
