EUR/USD: Modest Consolidation; Near-Term Dips Buying opportunities – TD
TD FX Strategy Research thinks the balance of risks favor some modest EUR/USD consolidation into Jackson Hole, especially noticing that it is likely that ECB President Draghi will not deliver any fresh news on monetary policy.
” This leaves the EUR vulnerable to a buy the rumor, sell the fact outcome. A few press releases this week also underscored the ECB’s modest discomfort with the strength of the EUR. This is slightly at odds with the minutes, which showed the ECB was comfortable with the current level of the exchange rate,” TD adds.
“Still, positioning looks stretched near-term, and we look to use any dips as buying opportunities.”
EUR/USD: Scope For A Move Towards 1.15 Post Jackson-Hole Before Higher – ING
ING FX Strategy Research has been arguing since the July ECB meeting that markets might have got ahead of themselves when it comes to pricing in the ECB’s next steps.
“Less aggressive expectations over the timing and pace of QE tapering chimes with our message that EUR/$ will first move lower before moving higher from these levels.
While the EUR has so far shown the resilience of a boxer refusing to go down despite taking a few big hits, we believe that signs of a more cautious ECB over the coming weeks may see some of this resistance fade.
We continue to see scope for a EUR/USD retrace towards 1.15 post-Jackson Hole.”
