Credit Agricole CIB Research discusses the latest reading from its Risk Index.

"At -0.56 (vs -0.58 last week) our Risk Index remains broadly unchanged in risk-seeking territory. This is mostly due to lower equity market volatility and tightening credit spreads. FX volatility, in contrast, rose," CACIB notes.

"In addition, defensive stock market sectors such as utilities have been outperforming. While this could be reflective of increased caution among investors, it may also mean that there is less scope for material corrective downside from current levels," CACIB adds.

Bank of America Global Research discusses the US 10y yields outlook.

"One of the most frequent client questions we tackle these days is: Why are US interest rates so low and can this persist? Clients point to strong growth - currently tracking 4.1% for 3Q - and CPI inflation running above 5%. But we think the rates market is focused on 2023 and beyond, and are increasingly questioning the ability of the Fed to deliver a substantial hiking cycle. The most important driver of long-term rates, in our view, is the market's perception of where the Fed will stop hiking after it begins its cycle of policy normalization," BofA notes.

"We have not changed our forecast for 10y rates at 1.9% by year-end, but downside risks to our forecast have increased. We also continue to like 2y-10y steepeners as better-carry alternative to an outright short in 10y rates," BofA adds.

UOB Research discusses its forecasts for GBP/USD and USD/JPY.

"With the positive vibes likely to spillover to the GBP together with the currency’s attractive valuations, we keep to our bullish view on the GBP/USD, expecting the pair at 1.40 in 3Q21, 1.41 in 4Q21, 1.42 in both 1Q and 2Q22," UOB notes. 

"With the Bank of Japan expected the last within G-10 to normalize monetary policy, if any, the resulting monetary policy divergence with the FED will be the widest and underpins a higher USD/JPY. As such, we keep to our existing forecasts, expecting USD/JPY at 112 in 3Q21, 113 in 4Q21, 114 in both 1Q and 2Q22," UOB adds.

GBP/USD rallied on Thursday after disappointing U.S. GDP data, reaching highs by 1.3980 after extending the session's earlier gains above the 50% Fibo of the June-July range -- at 1.3911 -- with sterling bulls regaining momentum for further advances.

Helping cable's outlook, the pound broke 100- and 55-day moving average resistance at 1.3925 and 1.3969, respectively.

GBP/USD initially whipsawed after the U.S. data as traders weighed the below-forecast headline GDP against rises in PCE prices advance nL1N2P434L, which came after Thursday's Fed meeting avoided specifics on asset purchases tapering, tempering dollar enthusiasmnL1N2P41Q9.

The pound isup nearly 3% from its July 20 low at 1.3573, as bulls look toward firming BoE rate expectations, in contrast to Fed uncertainty and a stagnating ECB outlook.

The divergence of U.S.-UK rate normalization timing is becoming more stark as UK short-sterling futures price a 25bpp rate hike between March and June 2022, with U.S. Eurodollar futures hinting at a Q4 2022 Fed hike.

Bulls are pinning their hopes on a hawkish BoE lean at the Aug. 5 MPC meeting to overcomethe early June 2021 high at 1.4250.

Citi flags a USD selling signal from its month month-end fixing model.

"The July FOMC was slightly hawkish relative to our and market expectations, but in line with the view of Citi’s economists by signaling that a taper announcement could come as early as the September FOMC," Citi notes. 

"Dollar weakness is also likely to continue over the coming sessions. Factors to consider include month-end USD selling signals alongside a large drawdown in the TGA ahead of the July 31 ‘soft debt ceiling’ deadline," Citi adds.

ANZ Research summarizes its tactical bias on EUR, GBP, AUD, and NZD.

"In the near term some consolidation in the EUR is possible as the dovishness of the ECB and its low rates structure hamstring its recovery. The path of the GBP will depend on how COVID-19 affects the ‘free’ economy," ANZ notes. 

"The AUD will be supported by the global outlook, but the lockdowns are posing domestic risk. For the NZD, we expect consolidation ahead of the RBNZ’s first hike," ANZ adds.
