  • This week's ECB meeting minutes should be interesting to watch especially in light of the US-China #tradewar. Stay tuned for more in-depth analysis.
  • You also have to take into account the demographic factor whereby the wide-spread graying of Europe (and soon the US) will further sap inflationary pressure. As people age, they spend less of their income because unlike their younger years, they aren't trying to accumulate stuff.
  • Europeans are going to have to find a way to reconcile that because cutting rates deeper into negative territory I don't think is going to give the same stimulative effect as when rates were higher. Plus they've already got QE going on indefinitely.

Prepared by Joel Kruger

Rallies for this pair above 0.8000 have often proven difficult to sustain, and it looks as though we are once again seeing the market falter above 0.8000 following an impressive ten big figure rally in 2011. A key bearish reversal week in early May provides added confirmation for topping bias, and from here, we see the risks for deeper setbacks towards 0.7500 at a minimum, before bulls attempt to reassert. Back above 0.8000 gives reason for concern.

Natural disaster in New Zealand has forced a substantial correction in interest rate forecasts and commensurate declines in the New Zealand currency. Markets now predict that the Reserve Bank of New Zealand will leave interest rates unchanged in the coming twelve months. Though the US Federal Reserve is hardly expected to raise rates aggressively, interest rate expectation spreads actually favor the downtrodden USD.

The New Zealand Dollar has lost yield-based support and continues to come off of peaks seen through recent trade. Continued deterioration in its interest rate advantage versus major counterparts could force continued losses.
