US GDP missed badly but the market was largely forgiving as it was mostly driven by trade with some help from inventories. Government spending was also soft but it was on softer defense spending and that won't last. The bigger move on the GDP report might have been stocks and the risk trade on the thinking that the Fed could be marginally less hawkish as it begins to fret about growth. That could change with tomorrow's PCE report but that thinking helped to boost stocks. On that front it was a wild ride. Futures were 1.2% higher but that optimism didn't last and the gains evaporated before lunchtime. But the dip buyers emerged and there was a huge rally into the close. Aside from the JPY weakness -- which has taken on a life of its own -- the FX market wasn't particularly impressed with stocks as both AUD/USD and NZD/USD fell significantly on the day.Some of that is feedback from the broad dollar rally due to the breakdowns in JPY, EUR and GBP. There's also some month-end demand for dollars going through. Over in Europe, it sounds like a ban on n oil is coming and that's another reason to downgrade eurozone GDP forecasts for whenever it's phased in.The euro chopped sideways and the pound bounced a bit after breaking down to 1.2412 but a modest bounce after such a big fall isn't particularly inspiring.
