Key Quotes

“EUR a tough call here, the risk averse backdrop on the one hand likely to underpin EUR but relative growth and policy vs the US still decidedly tilted in the USD’s favour.”

“For the time being we stick with a positive one week EUR view - higher energy prices in the month tip the risks in favour of a firmer Sep advance EZ CPI while regional US PMIs flag sub-50 ISM risks next week.”

“Beyond that a Dec Fed hike still looks like a good bet and we stick with a negative 3mth EUR outlook. The optics look much more favourable for a Dec Fed hike amid what is likely another year of “seasonally” stronger US activity data - as has been custom into in recent years - while the base effects from the fall in energy prices drop out of the US CPI calculations through Q4. EUR/GBP testing our patience though suspect it will struggle to fi nd many willing buyers through 0.74.”
