Despite the latest EUR/USD push to recovery highs at 1.1974, the reaction has been tame in the forward-looking FX options market, suggesting traders aren't betting on a sustained EUR/USD rise yet.

Options thrive on volatility and outsized directional moves, using implied volatility to gauge how much and determine premiums.
However, implied volatility remains depressed near pandemic lows, and additional premium for EUR calls over puts (topside versus downside strikes) is also tame.

Benchmark one-month implied volatility is 5.75 versus 5.55 Tuesday.
One-month 25 delta risk reversals are just 0.1 vol premium for EUR calls over puts.

Outright demand for EUR calls, which would benefit from further EUR/USD gains, is also light.

There are multiple daily highs from early to mid March ahead of well-touted 1.2000 option barriers, which could be tough to crack.
More technical resistance lies in the lower to mid 1.20s if they do eventual go nL1N2M70C2.

However, keep an eye on option premium and flows.
Further gains might reinforce any growing topside conviction.

TD Research discusses EUR/JPY outlook and likes short exposure in spot targeting a move towards 126.

"While we think it is problematic to be long the yen vs. the USD owing to the higher Tsy yield backdrop, we prefer to express this on crosses that offer some insulation," TD notes. 

"EURJPY has thus far rejected multi-year trend line resistance, which broadly coincides with 130.50. A move above will require a much more impressive EUR setup, which still seems like a distant proposition at this time with Europe poorly managing its vaccine rollout and delaying its participation in a global growth uptick. As a result, we have added a short EURJPY position," TD adds.

Credit Suisse discusses CHF outlook and sees a scope for a 2-way risks in the near-term.

"We believe that the SNB sold CHF 583 million worth of FX reserves in February. A small amount compared to a total of CHF 934 billion. However, it appears that the SNB shifted reserves in March as well. These sales should not be seen as a tightening of monetary policy but as an attempt to defuse the tensions with the US in light of the Treasury currency manipulator label," CS notes.

"Nevertheless, we believe this move introduces more two-way risk in EURCHF from here, keeping FX vols supported," CS adds.

Barclays Research discusses its expectations for today's RBNZ April policy meeting.

"With the RBNZ effectively closing the door to further easing at its February meeting, we expect no change to policy settings. The bank will likely reiterate that policy will remain accommodative given continuing uncertainties," Barclays notes.

"However, we think the bank will also emphasise that it is not looking to normalise policy settings anytime soon. Notably, this will be the first meeting in which the RBNZ will be required to outline the impact of its decisions on house prices," Barclays adds.

The dollar's bearish reaction to above-forecast U.S. CPI has left it vulnerable, and it could fall to support near its mid-March low of 91.30 if EUR/USD were to clear resistance by 1.1950 and USD/JPY broke key support at 109.

Such dramatic moves might not occur before Thursday's U.S. retail sales report, the next key data on the agenda.

The dollar index has probed below April's prior trough by 92.00 in the wake of the U.S. CPI report nW1N2M6000, which was not sufficiently above forecasts to challenge the assumption that the Fed will keep rates near zero for some time.

Treasury yields had fallen earlier in reaction to J&J's COVID-19 vaccine being put on pause nL1N2M60XL, and slid further after the CPI report.

But EUR/USD's rally has so far held below the 38.2% Fibo of this year's slide at 1.1950 and February's swing low there.
There is more resistance by 1.2000 nL1N2M61CG, but a close above the 1.1950 hurdles would brighten its prospects.

USD/JPY probed below its 30-day moving average at 109.20, with the April low at 109.00 major support tied to the 200-week moving average and the 23.6% Fibo of 2021's rise nL1N2M618Z.

Bank of America Global Research discusses the EUR outlook in light of the ongoing acceleration in the vaccination pace in Europe.

"Part of the reason we were bearish EURUSD in the first quarter of the year was the slow start to EU vaccination. However, vaccination in Europe is finally accelerating and the EUR is strengthening again. We argue that for the EUR gains to be sustained, vaccination would have to accelerate fast enough to save at least part of the summer tourist season," BofA notes. 

"Our estimates suggest that while the pace of European vaccination has doubled so far in April, it will have to triple from the March level (US pace), to be able to reopen for the tourist season in July, which is the official target. This is feasible, but not a given. In addition, vaccination passports, which most countries are resisting so far, would help tourism and the EUR, in our view," BofA adds.

Sterling held firm on Tuesday after finding support during an earlier dip below 1.3700, helped by dollar weakness that appeared to be more driven by the U.S. calling for a pause in the distribution of Johnson and Johnson's COVID vaccine nL4N2M62U9 than unexpectedly strong U.S. CPI.

News that BoE chief economist Andy Haldane would leave the BoE nL8N2M643W this year was also in the mix.

The pound struggled versus the euro, hitting a 6-month low at 0.8711.
Early 2021 GBP, and USD, strength was aided by the successful vaccine rollouts.
The UK was expected to approve the JNJ vaccine shortly and has ordered 30 million doses for summer delivery, Click here .

Tuesday's third consecutive sub-1.37 probe enhances GBP/USD's bearish tone.
With recent recovery attempts shallow, capped by the 10-day moving average at 1.3784 and 10-week moving average at 1.3851, a break below Monday's low at 1.3670 and lower 30-day Bolli at 1.3660 will open the way for tests of 2021 daily lows on the way to 200-DMA support by 1.3342.

GBP/USD bulls must regain the 10-WMA to stem the bearish tide and a rise above the daily cloud top at 1.3942 to regain momentum.

MUFG Research sees a scope for EUR outperformance on a brighter vaccination prospects in Europe.

"The chart below highlights a notable acceleration across key EU countries that will greatly improve optimism over a faster pace of vaccination roll-outs. France has seen a pick-up with over 0.5mn vaccines administered on Friday, a one-day record. In Germany on Thursday, 719k vaccines were administered while in Italy the 7-day average of administered vaccines hit 200k for the first time over the weekend," MUFG notes. 

"The higher yields in the US and the evidence of better COVID vaccination roll-outs in Europe may well limited EUR/USD downside. We’d still expect a EUR/USD decline but the euro should outperform other G10 currencies versus the dollar,' MUFG adds.

Citi likes selling EUR/USD on rallies in the near-term.

"We are biased towards fading the recent EURUSD rally in the short-term, as i) we expect downward pressure on US rates to be temporary and long-end US-EU rate spreads to widen on growth, fiscal and central bank divergence, ii) vaccination progress remains slow despite peaking new cases, and iii) EUR funding outflow continues," Citi notes. 

"In the medium-term, we still expect EURUSD upside driven by the global recovery," Citi adds.
