Colombian Minutes Due, Mexican Consumer Confidence Dips

LATAM
  • Mexican Consumer Confidence fell just short of expectations, dropping to 43.6 to 43.9. All components of the survey, from household confidence, to current and future conditions fell this month.
  • Minutes from the Colombian central bank cross later today, giving accounts for the June meeting at which the bank raised rates by 150bps to 7.50%.
  • In Chile, The elections board (Servel) is to explain the rules and regulations surrounding the upcoming referendum on the draft constitution posted by government yesterday. The vote is due to take place in September. Latest polling continues to suggest decent public opposition to the new write-up, which eyes more environmental protection, worker’s rights and public ownership rules.
  • On Argentina, markets continue to speculate over the suitability of the new economy minister, Batakis, who was confirmed late on Sunday. The initial view is that Batakis’ appointment is not market friendly, due to lack of experience in IMF negotiations, formulation of major economic policies and general preference for export taxation/FX controls.
