The euro recovered in the European session yesterday obliterating five days of consecutive losses as reports that Italy expects to reduce its budget deficit after next year eased concerns over the prospect of a wider deficit that had rattled markets. The euro made a new low in the Asian session today reaching 1.1462
Italian newspapers reported that Italy’s populist government will reduce its budget deficit targets for 2020 and 2021 to 2.2% and 2% respectively and stick with its plan for 2.4% for 2019. The government had originally said it would plan to run a deficit of 2.4% over the next three years which would have breached European Union fiscal rules, spooking markets and prompting criticism from the European Commission.
Finance Minister Giovanni Tria has noted that he would strive to achieve a figure ranging from 1.6-2%. The former government had agreed with the European Commission that the deficit would shrink to 0.8% in 2019 and 0% in 2020, before recording a surplus of 0.2% in 2021.
The employment numbers for September from ADP was better than expected showing 230k and it was expected 187k and that is higher than the 167K people who were employed in the previous month.
The ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI was better than expected also with 61.6 and the expectation was 58.0. These economics figures give a push to the dollar against currencies.
Gold prices advanced higher after gaining over 1% in the prior session on worries over Italian finances.EU officials expressed concerns about Italy’s financial budget plan and fears of a widening budget deficit drove up safe-haven demand.
In the meantime, senior Italian lawmaker Claudio Borghi said that the majority of the country’s problems would be resolved if it readopted a national currency. Late, Borghi made everything clear by his remarks that Italy’s government has no intention of leaving the euro. Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte also said the country is totally committed to the euro and that any comments that suggest a single currency are merely individual opinions.
The strong rally in the commodity doesn’t mean that the trend is ready to turn higher, with long terms gains likely to be capped by the expectations of rising U.S. interest rates.
