EUR: A Very Bad German PMI This Week Might Be Enough To Cement EUR/USD Under Parity - SocGen

By eFXdata  —  Aug 22 - 10:45 AM
Societe Generale Research maintains a bearish bias on EUR/USD over the coming weeks.
 
"The week’s big event will be the Jackson Hole Symposium, with Jay Powell likely to sound resolute, and committed to beating inflation. Mr Powell speaks on Friday at 3pm UK time so there’s plenty of time to focus on the meeting, but last week's rise in global bond yields, along with last week’s soft Chinese data, sent global equities into a bit of a funk and gave the dollar a big boost," SocGen notes. 
 
"Europe flash PMIs start coming out tomorrow. In Europe, national surveys have been stronger than the PMI data, which may give some hope for a stronger figure, but in Germany, gas prices, the water level in the Rhine and inflation are having a devastating impact on business confidence. A very bad German PMI might be enough to cement EUR/USD under parity, even if other countries fare better," SocGen adds.
