Euro Latest: EUR/USD. EUR/JPY Awaits ECB Sintra Forum

Euro Latest: EUR/USD. EUR/JPY Awaits ECB Sintra Forum

Justin McQueen, Strategist

EUR/USD Analysis and Talking Points

  • All Eyes on ECB’s Sintra Forum
  • Euro Testing 1.06 as Traders Await President Lagarde

EUR: Price action in the FX space has been relatively choppy, which is despite the sizeable moves observed in rates, commodities and equities over recent trading sessions. That being said, as we approach month/quarter/half-year end, noisy price action is likely to persist a little longer. Aside from portfolio rebalancing, eyes will be on the ECB’s Sintra Forum. For those unfamiliar with the Sintra Forum, this is a central banking annual event organised by the ECB, much like the Fed’s Jackson Hole Symposium in August, where a plethora of central bank governors exchanges views regarding current policy issues.

For the ECB, the focus will be on President Lagarde’s commentary surrounding any additional details on the anti-fragmentation tool. This is perhaps a reason why the Euro has been resilient in face of last week’s poor PMI figures, which provided a stark reminder of the downside risks to growth that the Euro Area faces.
