ECB monetary policy announcement can bring back the long due FX volatility (Column: Currency Corner)
There are five central bank meetings next week but the European Central Bank's monetary policy announcement will be the most important catalyst for the move in the US Dollar Index and the EUR/USD. In fact, the ECB meeting will even trump the US non-farm payrolls report in terms of its impact on the EUR/USD. Currency Corner does not believe that the ECB is ready to roll out Quantitative Easing just yet, but given recent economic data particularly from Germany, the case for additional stimulus is growing. Core Euro-zone CPI growth ticked up in the month of August and this is yet another short term support for Euro longs going into the September 5th meet. While we may see escalated tension and thus downward pressure on the EUR/USD due to the Russian/Ukraine conflict, Russian exports represent only 1 percent of German GDP. It is widely expected that Draghi will reiterate that the problem for Germany and many other countries in the region is restrictive fiscal policy. The surprise uptick in core CPI growth could make Mario Draghi more comfortable with leaving monetary policy unchanged next week. Further, with the first TLTRO programme expected in September, Currency Corner expects the ECB to wait until its impact is gauged. The fundamental view on this matter is that the course for the ECB is clear and the only question is how quickly and in what form will they will ease again. It is only a matter of timing and in this columns view, we have maintained September is not the base case scenario for QE initiation. Note that the EUR/USD will sell off to levels of around 1.3120 if the central bank significantly lowers their GDP and inflation forecasts (their staff forecasts will be released next week). These will be multi month lows in the Euro. Some economists are also calling for a 10bp deposit rate cut which would constitute easing but we think the central bank will postpone this move.
