Credit Agricole CIB Research maintains a bearish bias on EUR and GBP in the near-term. CACIB is short GBP/USD in spot targeting a move towards 1.10.

"We think that the ECB will have a somewhat more difficult task convincing investors that it is able to hike rates aggressively into restrictive territory in view of the Eurozone recession and the prospect for more energy price-induced growth weakness in 2023. Similarly, we think that the BoE will underwhelm the hawkish market expectations next week," CACIB notes. 

"The recent consolidation of EUR/USD and GBP/USD could further reduce the need for aggressive policy rate hikes in Europe. Potential data disappointments from the Eurozone and UK next week could further add to the gloom. We maintain a negative stance on both the EUR and GBP going into next week," CACIB adds.

MUFG Research expects a pick-up in volatility next week on 5 central banks hikes and the US CPI report.

"It is highly likely we will get a slowdown in pace from the Fed with a 50bp hike. We expect 50bp rate hikes from the ECB and BoE as well – all announcing their decisions next Thursday. Norges meets on Thursday also and have already stepped down to 25bp moves and we expect another 25bp hike...

The SNB also meets next Thursday and given the SNB only meets every quarter there is a greater risk that we do not get a slowdown in pace and another 75bp rate hike is possible. But a stepdown to a 50bp hike seems more likely given the inflation data is much lower in Switzerland than elsewhere," MUFG notes.

"Next week offers obvious potential for a pick-up in volatility as we approach year-end but assuming we do get a major CPI shock next week, market pricing seems reasonable based on what we expect from the major central banks next week," MUFG adds.

Danske Research discusses EUR/USD outlook around next week's ECB December policy meeting. 

"For EUR/USD, the ECB meeting will conclude a busy week that also includes US CPI and the FOMC meeting. Overall, we do not expect a ‘hawkish 50bp hike’ will leave a big impact on EUR/USD, but it depends on the momentum heading into the meeting," Danske notes.

"The market may feed off a hawkish ECB, if US CPI inflation drops again and the Fed comes across as dovish and sends EUR/USD to new highs. Vice versa, higher US CPI inflation may turn around momentum in EUR/USD, send it back down and leave the ECB meeting less relevant," Danske adds.

UniCredit summarizes its bias on USD, EUR, GBP, JPY, and CHF for 2023.

"FX market picture: US interest rates, global risk sentiment and volatility are set to continue to play a key role in the global FX outlook and the USD’s dynamics in 2023 and 2024. Volatility is set to remain high amid large intraday swings," UniCredit notes.

"➢ USD: lower, but a complete reversal of its strength is unlikely

EUR: higher but not much more beyond 1.12 against the USD

JPY: USD-JPY back towards 130; possible BoJ’s monetary policy back to zero; EUR-JPY towards 150

GBP: GBP-USD higher but limited upside beyond 1.20; EUR-GBP to re-test 0.90

CHF: back towards 1.05 against the EUR," UniCredit adds.

Credit Suisse adopts a cautious bias on USD/JPY in the near-term.

"Our caution applies to USDJPY, which came close to our current range low expectation at 133.10 last Friday but has since bounced to close to our USDJPY 138.00 year-end target. The speed of the moves and reversals combined with extreme data sensitivity make this a treacherous environment," CS notes. 

"We see low odds of the 19-20 December BOJ meeting being a relevant factor for USDJPY, and continue to expect wider USD direction linked to Fed policy to dominate price action," CS adds.

ANZ Research likes short GBP/CHF exposure in spot targeting a move towards 1.11.

"We do not expect the broad November 2022 rally in the GBP to be long lasting given the UK’s weak economic fundamentals: its twin deficits, high inflation and rising interest rates. The Bank of England predicts a two-year recession ahead. While yields and improving risk sentiment have driven recent upside in the GBP, the yield differential with the CHF is expected to continue narrowing," ANZ notes. 

"Further, a key driver of FX is real yields which are more supportive for the CHF. Short GBP/CHF is a defensive, lowbeta trade to hedge any downside from deteriorating economic conditions in the UK and Europe. Consensus expectation of the Swiss central bank’s terminal rate is 1.5%," ANZ adds.

Bank of America Global Research discusses its expectations for next week's FOMC policy meeting.

"We expect the Fed to raise its target range for the federal funds rate by 50bp in December to 4.25-4.5%Fed communications over the last few weeks have clearly telegraphed this move. The more important question is where the Fed goes next," BofA notes.

"Dots to shift higher again: We expect the median forecast for 2023 to move up by 50bp to 5.125%, consistent with our terminal rate. We think the dot plot will then point to 100bp of cuts each in 2024 and 2025. The macro projections in the SEP should be revised to show lower GDP growth and inflation than in September, and higher unemployment.

"Press conference: no pivot.  We expect Chair Powell to push back against easing in financial conditions and remind investors that a slower pace of hikes does not mean a lower terminal rate, and the Fed's job is far from done," BofA adds.

EUR/USD traded higher Thursday as a rise in U.S. weekly and continuing jobless claims nL1N32Y13E softened the dollar and reinforced confidence among longs as they grow comfortable with the pair trading near trend highs.

EUR/USD's ability to hold near recent highs is likely driven by influences from rates markets.

Eurodollars prices EDZ3 appear to be bottoming on a higher probability of recession that could lead to Fed rate cuts.
U.S. Treasury 3-month/10-year and 2-year/10-year spreads signal the potential for recession as they remain inverted and trade at levels not seen since the early 1980s.

Rates markets also expect the Fed and ECB policies to diverge.
Eurodollars expect Fed cuts in the second half of 2023 while Euribor rates indicate ECB cuts won't be implemented until early 2024 FEIM4.

Interest rate influences are helping EUR/USD hold in the 1.0400-1.0600 zone and keep its consolidation phase, a bullish signal, intact.

U.S.
November PPI and CPI reports will be released ahead of the Fed's Dec.
13-14 meeting.
Downside surprises could indicate disinflation is taking hold, which could lead to a less hawkish Fed and lower dollar.
