Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT

While a head and shoulders top may be forming from the November 2010 top, don’t be surprised to see the EURUSD hold up for at least another month. Recent COT data shows that commercials are long a record number of contracts and non commercials (large speculators) are nearly as short as they were at the 2010 bottom. One would expect positioning to moderate before a true breakdown occurs. Resistance this month is 13565 and 13855. The obvious 13150 is support with a break exposing 12850 (January and 2011 low).

Euro/US Dollar Interest Rate Trading Bias: Neutral

Analysts predict that the European Central Bank will cut interest rates by a modest 22 basis points in the coming 12 months, while the US Federal Reserve will leave interest rates unchanged. Relatively neutral yield expectations give little reason to call for significant EURUSD declines. Yet to focus on interest rates alone misses the real driver of recent EURUSD volatility: European fiscal crises.

It seems as though European governments are on the cusp of announcing the next significant breakthrough in fiscal bailouts. Yet we’ve all heard this story before, and the real truth is that substantial changes remain difficult.

We remain overall bearish the Euro against the US Dollar from a fundamental standpoint. Yet shorter-term sentiment analysis suggests that the EURUSD could rally through December before falling further in the New Year.

Euro / US Dollar Valuation Forecast

EURUSD Valuation Forecast: Bearish

Source: Bloomberg

The Euro remains significantly overvalued against the US Dollar, trading 2175 pips or 16.23 percent above its PPP-implied fair exchange rate. The greenback’s primacy as a safe haven as investors turn away the intervention-hindered Japanese Yen and Swiss Franc calls for a deeper correction of the value gap ahead as the Eurozone debt crisis continues to weigh on market-wide risk appetite. Importantly, even if the currency bloc’s policymakers finally craft a functional scheme to relieve sovereign stress – most likely along the lines of an idea floated by newly-minted ECB President Mario Draghi that proposes following a credible plan for deeper fiscal integration with an expanded bond-buying program from the central bank to reign in borrowing costs – the Euro is likely to suffer nonetheless. Indeed, austerity measures are weighing heavily on growth, meaning the ECB is likely to continue cutting interest rates. Any QE-style program that emerges as part of the debt crisis relief deal would naturally reinforce this trajectory.

What is Purchasing Power Parity?

One of the oldest and most basic fundamental approaches to determining the “fair” exchange rate of one currency to another relies on the concept of Purchasing Power Parity. This approach says that an identical product should cost the same from one country to another, with the only difference in the price tag accounted for by the exchange rate. For example, if a pencil costs €1 in Europe and $1.20 in the US, the “fair” EURUSD exchange rate should be 1.20. For our purposes, we will use the PPP values provided annually by Bloomberg. We compare these values to current market rates to determine how much each currency is under- or over-valued against the US Dollar.
