Euro May Rise as ECB Leaves Markets Wanting

Euro May Rise as ECB Leaves Markets Wanting

Talking Points:

  • Euro May Turn Higher as ECB Stimulus Expansion Leaves Markets Wanting
  • Aussie, Kiwi Dollars Find Support in Ebbing RBNZ and RBNZ Rate Cut Bets
  • Canadian Dollar Soars Alongside Oil Prices After Saudi Output Cut Rumor

All eyes have turned to the monetary policy announcement from the European Central Bank, with Mario Draghi and company are widely expected to expand monetary stimulus. Options include broadening the scope of QE-eligible assets, scrapping the program’s September 2016 end date, increasing the size of monthly purchases from the current €60 billion and pushing the deposit rate deeper into negative territory from the current -20bps.

The markets seem primed for a big-splash accommodative gesture, raising the bar on the ECB to deliver a dovish-enough result to mollify investors and increasing the threat of disappointment. If traders are left unimpressed, the Euro is likely to rise amid profit-taking on short positions while broad-based risk appetite deteriorates, weighing on sentiment-linked FX including the Australian and New Zealand Dollars.

The Kiwi returned to the offensive overnight following yesterday’s corrective pullback. The move tracked rising front-end bond yields, pointing to fading RBNZ rate cut speculation as the driving catalyst. The Aussie came under early selling pressure following disappointing Trade Balance data. Here too however, an improving policy outlook proved supportive and largely offset data-inspired losses.

The Canadian Dollar raced higher after Energy Intelligence (EI) reported that Saudi Arabia may propose a 1 million barrel output cut to stabilize global oil prices at some point in 2016. The news sent crude oil prices sharply higher, pulling the Loonie upward along the way. The kingdom is said to condition its acceptance of a cut on participation from non-OPEC producers as well as Iran and Iraq. EI cited an unidentified OPEC delegate as the source of the story.
