Zinc Morning meeting on the 31st of SMM7:


Macro: overnight US personal spending rose 0.3 per cent in June from a month earlier, expected to be 0.3 per cent, compared with a previous value of 0.4 per cent. The US PCE price index rose 1.4 per cent in June from a year earlier and is expected to rise 1.5 per cent after rising 1.5 per cent. The Commerce Department report showed that consumer spending rose at the slowest pace in four months as growth in services and other goods offset the decline in car purchases, with the core PCE index rising 0.2 per cent last month, the same increase for the third month in a row. Moderate increases in consumer spending and prices in June suggested that slowing economic growth and moderate inflation could prompt the Fed to cut interest rates on Wednesday for the first time in a decade.
