EUR: Hawkish Shift In ECB Rhetoric A M-Term EUR Positive But Limited Impact N-Term - MUFG
First appeared on eFXplus on Sep 25 - 01:00 PM

MUFG Research discusses the EUR outlook in light of the recent hawkish turn in the ECB rhetoric which MUFG flags as a positive medium-term factor for the single currency through 2019 but not necessarily been reflected in the near-term. 

"The euro has staged a sharp rebound against the US dollar over the last month and is currently attempting to break above key resistance at the 1.1800-level. The recent turnaround for the euro supports our view that further downside for the euro from already undervalued levels should prove limited," MUFG argues. 

"The hawkish shift in ECB rhetoric is providing more support for the euro although upside potential in the near-term continues to be dampened by the ECB’s forward guidance to leave rates on hold at least through the summer of next year. The euro would begin to strengthen more notably if the market started to more seriously question the sustainability of low rates in the euro-zone. It is a development we expect to materialize in 2019 and supports our outlook for a stronger euro," MUFG adds.

AUD/JPY - COMMENT-Japanese Now More Likely To Sell AUD/JPY, NZD/JPY?
First appeared on eFXplus on Sep 25 - 09:35 PM

Both AUD/JPY and NZD/JPY have bounced relatively sharply from near two-year lows earlier this month, and may now attract selling interest from Japanese investors.
AUD/JPY rallied from a fresh trend low of 78.69 on September 7, its lowest since November 2016, to 82.35 Friday, while NZD/JPY rallied from a fresh trend low of 72.25 on September 10, the lowest since August 2016, to 75.54 Friday.
Both have since come off a touch, with AUD/USD and NZD/USD recovering more moderately this month and looking to have peaked on fall-out from U.S.-China trade tensions.
Both crosses also remain in downtrends, capped around their Ichimoku clouds.
Given the toppish nature of AUD/USD and NZD/USD, the Mrs Watanabe retail traders look likely to again take a swipe down in the less liquid AUD/JPY and NZD/JPY.
Japanese investment trusts could join in to hedge what remains of their thinned-out portfolios.
This is especially the case with high-beta trades losing allure for Japanese institutional investors who prefer the safety, liquidity and increasingly, higher yields of more major currencies.

EUR/USD: In Range Until Break Higher 'Slowly, Step By Step' - SocGen
First appeared on eFXplus on Sep 25 - 10:10 AM

Societe Generale Research discusses EUR/USD outlook and maintains a neutral view with an upside bias for the rest of the year. 

"Clearly, the next big event will come in the dissection of the FOMC statement, tomorrow..

EUR/USD is likely to find 1.18 are hard nut to crack, but the bottom of the range has moved up to 1.15 and absent negative shocks from the Italian budget, or from the economic data, we still think we're in this range until we break higher (slowly, step by step)," SocGen argues.

EUR/USD: Risk-Reward Favors EUR/USD Upside Amid Italian And French Budgets - Barclays
First appeared on eFXplus on Sep 25 - 09:26 AM

Barclays Research discusses EUR/USD outlook and adopts and flags scope for upside in the near-term amid the release of the Italian and French budgets.

"We believe that risk-reward favors EUR/USD upside, given limited risks from the Italian and French budgets, and expected improvements in inflation prints. Italy is due to release an update to its medium-term economic and fiscal this week (by 27 September), and draft the 2019 budget by 15 October...," Barclays argues. 

"French budget will likely contain higher than previously projected public deficit and debt; however the focus will be on the government's strategic plan to reduce public spending and structural deficit....A more constructive plan from the French budget will likely support the single currency," Barclays adds.

EUR/USD - COMMENT-Perky EUR/USD Making Most Of Dollar Troubles
First appeared on eFXplus on Sep 25 - 10:30 AM

EUR/USD is making the most of the small crisis of confidence hindering the dollar, which remains weighed down by political and positioning issues.
EUR/USD is threatening to push back above
1.1800 after shrugging off euro-bearish comments by ECB's chief economist Praet, who attempted to damp speculation that Draghi's yesterday had hinted at a quicker normalization than previously expected. After spiking below 1.1740 on Praet -- a moved helped by German-U.S. yield spreads widening further in the greenback's favor -- EUR/USD quickly reversed its slide on the back of broad dollar sales. The price action betrayed the troubles sapping dollar bulls' vigor, including ongoing U.S. political issues in the form of Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination, uncertainty surrounding Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and November's U.S. Also in EUR/USD's favor, typically contrarian retail traders are nearing net short in the pair while also adding to net-short euro positions versus most major currencies. EUR/USD's rise is likely to be a grind, however, as it approaches big 1.1850/55 resistance.
A break should intensify the rally and target the 200-DMA.

EUR/USD: A Break Of 1.18 To Target 1.20; EUR/CHF: More Room To Run - TD
First appeared on eFXplus on Sep 25 - 08:45 AM

TD Research discusses the current market conditions and notes that the major currencies are sitting in a holding pattern awaiting the next impetus.

"We think it is the Fed, though the recent spike in oil has raised some eyebrows. The next move in oil matters insofar as it offers a good reason to keep the selloff in global rates moving, especially as global output gaps are closing. Higher oil prices would support the ECB's confidence that inflation is headed in the right direction,
" TD adds. 

This is more likely to benefit the ROW than the USD, given there is more room for a deeper selloff in the like of bunds. The 10y is up nearly 20bp over the past 3m.

The EUR has tracked bunds more closely than USTs, which also point to 1.20 on a break of 1.18. We also think EURCHF has room to run higher as CHF looks quite rich at current levels that also favors downside in CHFJPY," TD adds.
