    • After three cuts this year, Indian central bank Governor Raghuram Rajan kept interest rates on hold at 7.25% today, rebuffing pressure from the Finance Ministry to reduce borrowing costs that are among the highest in Asia.
    • Earlier in the day, the Reserve Bank of Australia kept rates steady at 2.0%, leaving out a reference to the need for the local dollar to fall further.

    • Australia's central bank left its official cash rate unchanged at 2% at its July monetary policy meeting as sliding commodity prices and uncertainty in China argued for continued stimulus, and even the chance of more cuts.
    • RBA Governor Glenn Stevens also underlined the need for a lower currency, stating further depreciation seemed "both likely and necessary."
    • The central bank has already eased twice this year as the unwinding of a mining boom carves a gaping hole out of business spending and national income.

    • Investors may think they have things figured out by buying dollars amid macro jitters, but that strategy had to be faded today. The dollar (UUP -0.6%) closed lower across the board, including a 0.3% decline vs. the euro (NYSEARCA:FXE) after having been about 1.5% higher in knee-jerk action reaction to Greece last night.
    • The dollar also lost 1.1% vs. the yen (NYSEARCA:FXY), 0.3% vs. the pound (NYSEARCA:FXB) and 0.6% vs the aussie (NYSEARCA:FXA).

    • Europe's dealing with the usual worries about Greece and weekend election gains by the anti-austerity party in Spain may have some wondering about contagion. The Stoxx 50 ETF (NYSEARCA:FEZ) is lower by 2.9% as Monday's loss across the pond combines with Tuesday.
    • This morning, a trio of economic reports - durable goods, home prices, and new home sales - beat expectations, giving another boost the greenback.
    • The dollar's higher by 1% vs. the euro (NYSEARCA:FXE), yen (NYSEARCA:FXY), loonie (NYSEARCA:FXC), and aussie (NYSEARCA:FXA), and somewhat less vs. cable (NYSEARCA:FXB) and the Swiss franc (NYSEARCA:FXF). Buying ¥122.95, the greenback is at an 8-year high vs. the yen.

    • Core CPI rose 0.3% in April, the fastest pace since January 2013. Forecasts had been for just a 0.1% gain. Over the last 12 months, core CPI was up 1.8% in April, the same as March.
    • The overall CPI was higher by 0.1% in April and lower by 0.2% year-over-year.
    • The dollar bull ETF (NYSEARCA:UUP) is up 0.4% after the news. Against individual currencies, the greenback jumped about 100 pips vs. the euro (NYSEARCA:FXE), with similarly-sized moves vs. the aussie (NYSEARCA:FXA), loonie (NYSEARCA:FXC), swissie (NYSEARCA:FXF), yen (NYSEARCA:FXY), and cable (NYSEARCA:FXB).

    • Asian stock markets retreated today after Australia's central bank cut interest rates for the second time in four months, lowering its cash-rate target to a record low 2.0% from 2.25%.
    • Although the economy is showing signs of improvement, the new move will reinforce economic growth in the face of falling commodity prices and a China slowdown.
    • The Australia dollar also fell sharply following the announcement, hitting $0.7801, before rebounding to $0.7906 (+0.9%).
    • S&P ASX 200 -0.1%. Asia: Shanghai -2.8%; Hang Seng -1.3%.

    • The Reserve Bank of Australia has unexpectedly kept its benchmark cash rate at a record-low 2.25%, although Governor Glenn Stevens signaled that the RBA could cut in the future.
    • "Further easing of policy may be appropriate over the period ahead, in order to foster sustainable growth in demand and inflation consistent with the target," Stevens said.
    • The market had expected the RBA to reduce rates today after a quarter-percentage-point cut in February, due to sluggish growth, increasing unemployment, slumping iron-ore prics and China's slowdown.
    • "This is just a delay in the inevitable,” says ABN Amro strategist Roy Teo. "It's still very likely that the RBA will choose to cut rates next month. The strength in the Aussie is an impediment to the rebalancing of the economy." (PR)
    • The Aussie dollar is +1% at $0.7667.
