EUR/USD has posted gains on Tuesday, as the pair climbed above 1.3570, a level not seen since February. The dollar lost ground as the US government shut down, as politicians were unable to find a way out of the budget impasse. In economic news, Spanish and Italian PMIs missed their estimates. German Unemployment Change was well above the estimate, while the Eurozone Unemployment Rate edged lower. Over in the US, today’s key event is ISM Manufacturing PMI. The index has looked strong in recent releases and little change is expected in the September release.

EUR/USD Sentiment US Government Shutdown Starts: With Congress failing to break the budget impasse on September 30, the last day of the current financial year, the US government has shut down non-essential services. The economic damage is not expected to be significant, provided that the shutdown does not last more than a few days. However, this crisis will pale in comparison to that of the debt ceiling, which must be resolved by October 17. If no agreement on raising the debt ceiling is reached by that time, the US could default on bond payments. A default, even a “technical” one, could shake the entire financial world. Eurozone Unemployment Rate dips: Employment data out of Europe was mixed on Tuesday. There was good news as the Eurozone Unemployment Rate dropped from 12.1% to 12.0% in September, a five-month low. However, German Unemployment Change shot up to its highest level in over four years, rising from 7 thousand to 25 thousand. This surprised the markets, which had anticipated a decline of -7 thousand. Even though the Eurozone appears to have exited the recession, high unemployment continues to weigh on the recovery and job creation remains weak. Italian government collapses: The Berlusconi saga, which seems to never end, flared up again on the weekend, as ex-PM Silvio Berlusconi pulled out of the coalition government led by Enrico Letta. The flamboyant Berlosconi urged Letta to dissolve parliament and call new elections, but Letta has opted to seek a vote of confidence on Wednesday, hoping to keep his battered coalition together. Italian politics are often full of surprises and twists, and we could be in for quite a show this week. Octaper seems less likely: Apart from the NFP, the market prices the chances of a reduction in bond buys in October according to the Fed’s sentiment. FOMC member James Bullard told us that the decision not to taper QE in September was a close call, and that tapering in October is certainly possible. However, consequent FOMC speakers poured some cold water over this option. It’s important to follow Rosengren and especially Dudley. The Fed will hold its next policy meeting at the end of October. German coalition talks could last for a long time:: As widely expected, Chancellor Angela Merkel was re-elected to a third straight term in convincing style. Merkel’s conservative bloc steamrolled to victory but failed to win an absolute majority, so she is now negotiating a coalition with either the big opposition SPD party or the smaller Greens. Given the past, this will take time. The outcome is likely to be a more pro-European government, which is good news for the Euro.
