    EMERGING MARKETS-Latam currencies gain on Fed optimism, Brazil assets dip

    MSCI's Latin American currencies moved o.6% higher in line with emerging market peers as expectations of an interest rate cut by the Fed bodes well for developing market assets. The Mexican peso, which slid following the finance minister's abrupt resignation on Tuesday, gained 0.3%, but overhangs regarding the country's fiscal status kept investors nervous. All five of the Mexican central bank's board members agreed the slowdown in Mexico's economy had been larger than anticipated, with "signs of weakness" in the second quarter, minutes from the June 27 monetary policy meeting showed on Thursday.

    EMERGING MARKETS-Latam FX firm as Fed meets expectations on rate cut signals

    (Updates prices) By Susan Mathew June 19 (Reuters) - Latin American currencies firmed on Wednesday, with Brazil's real and Mexico's peso reversing session losses to trade higher after the Federal Reserve signaled possible rate cuts of as much as half a percentage point in 2019. Brazil's real was up 0.2%, reversing losses of up to 0.6% logged earlier in the day, while Mexico's peso rose 0.1%, recovering from a decline of as much as 0.4%. Other regional currencies added to their gains. Most Latam stocks followed suit, with Sao Paulo-traded shares erasing losses to trade 0.8% higher, while gains in Mexican and Colombian stocks were bolstered.

    EMERGING MARKETS-Brazil currency, shares rise on pension overhaul proposal

    The real rose about 0.4% while Sao Paulo-listed stocks also gained 0.4% to touch a near three-month high after Brazil's congressional pension reform bill coordinator Samuel Moreira said the proposed changes would generate savings of 913.4 billion reais ($237 billion) over the next decade. "All indications suggest that pension reform remains on track and may leave the committee with greater savings than the consensus expected," Dirk Willer, head of emerging market strategy at Citi Research, and Kenneth Lam, an emerging markets FX strategist, wrote in a note. The Argentine peso advanced for a third day in a sign of approval from markets after President Mauricio Macri picked a moderate running mate that could broaden his voter base in elections to be held later this year.

    EMERGING MARKETS-Latam FX weak; Argentine peso up on central bank's easing of intervention limits

    The possibility of selling dollars below the previous threshold of 51.448 pesos per dollar was mentioned, an action which had not been allowed under the country's standby financing deal struck last year with the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The IMF supported the central bank's move, which pulled the peso off Friday's record closing low, but Argentina's stocks benchmark fell 1.4% largely on weakness among financials. Brazil's real slid 0.3%, losing steam as it gave back some of the 1.6% it had gained over the previous two sessions.

    Bonds Can’t Seem to Shake That Sinking Feeling

    Yields as measured by the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Treasuries Index have risen from this year’s low of 1.15 percent in late March to 1.27 percent on Tuesday. In a sign of just how pessimistic the bond market is on the economic outlook, government bonds globally rallied unusually hard after a small miss in a second-tier German economic report on business sentiment, with yields on that nation’s 10-year bonds dropping back below zero. Bond yields throughout the euro zone fell as well.

    Brazil's pensions secretary said details of the government's pension reform proposal were still being ironed out prior to a congressional committee vote in the afternoon, with several local newspapers reporting the government had agreed to alter certain minor provisions. A report said the changes to the proposal agreed by President Jair Bolsonaro's government should not affect targeted savings from the overhaul of the system. MSCI's index of Latin American stocks fell 0.3% as gains among the Brazilian shares on the index partially softened the impact of losses seen in other countries, such as Mexico.
