Market information Tuesday March 29th 2016

The Producer Confidence Index of Statistics Netherlands decreased from 3.2 in January 2016 to 3.1 in February 2016.

Today Fed Chair Janet Yellen and other Fed policymakers are expected to openly discuss the US central bank policy. Yesterday the US dollar fell as a result of weaker than expected US economic data. US consumer spending barely increased in February 2016 and inflation lowered, a report from the US Commerce Department shows. As a result, expectations of analysts of a near-term interest rate increase by the Federal Reserve have declined. The US dollar index DXY, an index which compares the US dollar to six other major currencies, decreased with 0.2 percent to 95.950.

While US economic results were weaker than expected, US home sales rose in February, contrary to the previous month’s decline. The National Association of Realtors’ home sales index rose with 3.5 percent to 109.1 last month, which is the highest level in seven months. In January the index declined by 3.0 percent.

The 6M Euribor remained unchanged at -0.13%. The 10Y Swap decreased with 1 basispoints at 0.56%.
