FX: Relief to the Euro in the Autumn

Arne Lohmann Rasmussen, Chief Analyst, Danske Bank

We expect global economic growth to remain weak but the recent stabilisation in macro surprises suggests that the period of downward revisions is coming to an end. This together with light risk positioning should be enough to secure a stable market but whether the current rebound will extend into Q4 will depend on policymakers.

In our main scenario, Spain asks the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) forhelp, the ECB restarts its bond purchase programme, China boosts its stimulus and with a 75/25 probability the Fed delivers QE3. This should reduce the EUR risk premium, lead to further unwinding of long dollar positions and support the cyclical commodity currencies.

Preliminary estimates came in at 0.3% q/q or about half the pace expected by economists. Next up was Europe, which received further confirmation of its economic woes as Q2 output declined by 0.2% q/q in both the euro area and the EU as a whole. The decline was fully expected, especially given that the region remains in the grips of a sovereign debt crisis. In fact, markets reacted positively to the news that Germany and France avoided outright declines between April and June this year.
