    American Dollar

    The dollar fell to the lowest versus the euro since November 2011 as a strengthening U.S. jobs market and expectations the Federal Reserve will sustain stimulus to ensure the recovery boosted investors’ risk appetite.

    The shared currency rose against most major peers as separate data showed European manufacturing at its highest level in almost a year. The yen sank to a 2 1/2-year low amid bets Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will pick a new central-bank governor who will boost stimulus.

    U.S. stocks fell the most in six weeks as a rout in commodities pressured energy and raw-materials providers while investors braced for the first rise in interest rates since 2006.
    Chevron Corp. dropped 2.5 percent and miner Freeport-McMoRan Inc. sank 5.8 percent as the stronger dollar and a persistent slump in demand from China sent the Bloomberg Commodity Index to the lowest since 1999. The recent weakness in commodity shares is a turnabout after energy and raw-materials helped drive a rebound from a summer correction and in October had their strongest month in four years.
    The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index fell 1.4 percent to 2,045.97 at 4 p.m. in New York, slipping below its average price during the past 200 days for the first time in two weeks. The U.S. equity benchmark has struggled to hold gains after rallying to within 1 percent of a record on Nov. 3. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 254.15 points, or 1.4 percent, to 17,448.07. The Nasdaq Composite Index declined 1.2 percent. About 7.1 billion shares traded hands on U.S. exchanges, about 4 percent below the three-month average.

    In 2015, American consumers put the economy on their backs. Next year, however, the economy will need to be firing on more cylinders in order to keep eating into slack, according to Goldman Sachs.
    In three of the past four quarters, real personal consumption expenditures (or PCE) have accounted for more than all of headline economic growth in the United States. Net exports, investment, and government spending have been a cumulative drag on those occasions:

    The surge in the dollar that helped convince the Federal Reserve to refrain from raising interest rates until at least December also supports the notion that it will be a shallow path higher.
    The greenback jumped 0.9 percent against the Aussie on Monday and reached the strongest in seven months versus the euro. The dollar climbed to a 12-year high this month, according to an index the Fed created to track the U.S. currency versus the nation’s biggest trading partners. The trade-weighted appreciation comes mostly against major exporters including Europe and China. Futures indicate the federal funds rate will reach about 0.80 percent by December 2016, while the most recent estimates from Fed officials in September show they expect to raise rates by about 1 percentage point next year.

    Investors are holding off on placing large stock bets, waiting for a slew of economic releases this week.
    Standard & Poor’s 500 Index E-mini futures expiring in December slipped 0.1 percent at 10:21 a.m. in London, paring an earlier decline of as much as 0.4 percent as European equities erased losses. The U.S. benchmark gauge is heading for a second monthly gain, up 0.5 percent. Dow Jones Industrial Average contracts dropped 7 points today.
    The lull in the stock market is continuing after light trading amid the Thanksgiving holiday left American shares little changed every single day last week. Investors are awaiting reports from pending home sales today to manufacturing data tomorrow and the monthly Labor Department jobs update on Friday. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen will speak to Congress on Thursday and the European Central Bank will hold its last policy meeting of the year.

    or once, the upcoming jobs report may not be the most critical of all time.
    Federal Reserve officials have signaled that an interest-rate increase is in play for their December meeting, with both markets and economists now anticipating that normalization will begin less than two weeks from now. That means the payrolls data will probably offer more information about the pace of tightening in the months ahead than on the timing of the first hike.
    "It would have to be a very large surprise — both in November and potentially a downward revision to October — to really change the outlook enough for the Fed to stop and reconsider the hike in December,'' said Laura Rosner, a U.S. economist at BNP Paribas in New York.
    Here's what economists will be watching when the Labor Department report is published at 8:30 a.m. on Friday:
    Clarity on the trend
    Payrolls probably climbed by about 200,000 last month following a 271,000 surge in October that was the biggest this year, according to the median forecast of a Bloomberg survey of economists. The unemployment rate is expected to hold at a seven-year low of 5 percent,.
    While some slowdown from October is to be expected, economists are looking for confirmation that hiring remains solid after payroll gains decelerated sharply in August and September. Friday's data will do a lot to clarify which trend prevails.

    The dollar rose for a second day against the yen before a U.S. retail-sales report which, according to economists, will reinforce bets the Federal Reserve is on course to raise interest rates for the first time in almost a decade.
    The Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index headed for a 0.4 percent weekly gain that’s taking it close to its highest level since the gauge started in 2004. The prospect of a rate increase at the Fed’s Dec. 15-16 meeting is heightening the allure of assets denominated in the greenback.
    The euro climbed against all but three of its 16 major peers on Friday after a week in which officials fueled skepticism about the extent of stimulus still to be delivered by the European Central Bank. The shared currency has gained about 3 percent versus the dollar since ECB President Mario Draghi unveiled a rebooted monetary stimulus package on Dec. 3 that fell short of what most investors anticipated.
    “A U.S. rate hike is mostly a done deal and there’s potential for some dollar buying,” said Masakazu Satou, a currency adviser at Gaitame Online Co., a retail foreign-exchange brokerage in Tokyo.
    The dollar climbed 0.3 percent to 121.94 yen as of 10 a.m. London time, the biggest gain this week. It was little changed at $1.0945 per euro, after a 0.8 percent advance on Thursday, while the European currency jumped 0.3 percent to 133.44 yen.

    Historically, interest-rate increases from the Federal Reserve have been buy signals for emerging-market assets. This time looks different, even after a selloff that has pushed currencies to record lows and equities down to levels not seen since 2009.
    Developing-nation stocks advanced 38 percent on average and currencies jumped 11 percent during the two previous Fed tightening cycles starting in 1999 and 2004. Firms including UBS AG and Citigroup Inc. say more pain is in store after the first U.S. interest rate increase in almost a decade because emerging markets haven’t fallen enough to reflect subdued growth.
    In the past, developing nations benefited from stronger U.S. growth. Now, stagnating global trade, a slowdown in China and a collapse in global commodity prices continue to take their toll. While stock valuations are similar to 2004, earnings have gone from growing 29 percent to falling 21 percent, and debt levels have reached a record high. Adjusted for inflation, 17 of 21 emerging-market currencies are more expensive than they were 11 years ago on a trade-weighted basi

    Gains in Amazon.com Inc. and Walt Disney Co. helped U.S. stocks mute declines led by energy shares, as the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index struggled to advance for the year entering the final trading days of 2015.
    Energy companies resumed their familiar role as the market’s worst performers, with Chevron Corp. dropping 1.8 percent. Copper producer Freeport-McMoRan Inc. sank 9.5 percent after climbing 24 percent in the prior five sessions. Amazon rose 1.9 percent, helping equities trim losses as investors assessed holiday sales. Disney gained 1.3 percent after “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” surged past $1 billion in worldwide sales.
    The S&P 500 slipped 0.2 percent to 2,056.50 at 4 p.m. in New York, as the gauge whittled an earlier 0.8 percent decline. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 23.90 points, or 0.1 percent, to 17,528.27, halting an afternoon rebound near its average price during the past 200 days. The Nasdaq Composite Index fell 0.2 percent. This week is shortened, with markets closed for the New Year’s Day holiday on Friday.

    U.S. index futures jumped, signaling the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index will rebound from its worst start to a year since at least 1928, as China fixed the yuan higher for the first time in nine days and equities in Shanghai rallied.
    Contracts on the S&P 500 due in March rose 0.8 percent to 1,948.75 as of 1:25 p.m. in Hong Kong, while those on the Dow Jones Industrial Average added 0.8 percent. U.S. shares lost almost $2 trillion in market value in the first four days of this week as unease about China’s sinking yuan reverberated around the world, stoking fears about the outlook for global growth and the risk of a currency war. Concern abated on Friday as the central bank ended an eight-day run of reductions to the yuan’s reference rate, while the Shanghai Composite Index surged 2.8 percent.
    “Investors were concerned about capital outflows from China as a result of the weaker yuan, but with the Chinese currency being fixed a little stronger, the market’s probably thinking that the outflows will calm down," said Ryoma Sugihara, head of equity flow sales at Societe Generale SA in Tokyo. “The situation is fragile, and the market sentiment seems to be moving on a short-term basis. To be honest no one really knows what’s happening in China, and we’ll keep on alternating between hope and despair."

    Crude around $32 a barrel to halt rout on U.S. stockpiles
    Gold ekes out more gains; `Brexit' concern weighs on pound
    Equities in the U.S. rose, with indexes recovering from drops of more than 1 percent as crude oil prices steadied around $32 a barrel, while Treasuries reversed gains as demand for some haven assets abated.
    The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index overcame a decline of as much as 1.6 percent as mining stocks rallied with technology shares, which helped the Nasdaq 100 Index up 0.9 percent. U.S. crude settled at $32.15 a barrel, clawing back from a slump that took it below $31. While gold and the yen extended gains, 10-year Treasury notes swung to losses, with yields on the debt rising three basis points to 1.75 percent. Wheat slid to a five-year low.
