Strategy Video: Euro Risks Are Not Extinguished by ECB Stimulus

Strategy Video: Euro Risks Are Not Extinguished by ECB Stimulus

John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• Stimulus will help the Eurozone's growth, financial stability and budget wrangling

• However, the major themes influencing the shared currency only offer tepid best-case scenarios

Euro trades should weigh monetary policy, global investor sentiment and sovereign stability

An open-ended QE program from the European Central Bank adds support for the Euro-area's economy and financial system. However, it doesn't automatically preempt the major fundamental themes that will continue to direct the Euro moving forward. Monetary policy has been the most prolific catalyst for the shared currency over the past six months, and it will continue to exert force going forward. However, a good deal of its pent up potential energy has been used. Meanwhile, stimulus may boost speculators' moods and lift hopes for relief in budgetary troubles; but global risk trends and political troubles are unlikely to be contained. What are the major themes we should watch for the Euro's medium to long-term bearing? What are the scenarios. Which pairs are best positioned? We discuss that in the Weekend Strategy Video.
