UBS - Revising Our Short Term Forecasts Across the Board

UBS - "we expect last week's FOMC meeting will keep the dollar weak for one quarter before its longer-term uptrend can resume.

So we revised our short term forecasts across the board overnight. We raised our 1m and 3m EURUSD forecasts to 1.37 and 1.35 respectively (from 1.30 and 1.28 before). Our 1m and 3m GBPUSD forecasts rise to 1.63 and 1.61 respectively (from 1.55 and 1.52 previously). Similarly, we now project USDJPY to be at 101 in one month's time and 103 over the next three…

UBS - This week's key points for currencies: Payrolls still key for dollar despite geopolitical risks

UBS - "The new month starts with a high degree of event risk. The US may launch strikes against Syria as early as this weekend. In the week ahead, the European Central Bank, the Banks of Japan, England and Canada, the Reserve Bank of Australia and the Riksbank all hold policy meetings. The US August payrolls report is due at the end of the week, and emerging market currencies are likely to face further pressure if America's employment data suggest the Federal Reserve will agree this month to…

UBS - This Week's Key Points: FOMC minutes central for dollar bulls

UBS - "The dollar index DXY remains at the bottom of its 81-85 summer trading range. Ten year US Treasury yields have traded through 2.80% for the first time in two years as America's economy continues to recover. But stronger Eurozone and UK data at the same time is preventing the dollar benefiting from the dovish stance of the European Central Bank and the Bank of England.

Nevertheless, we think the Federal Reserve's policymaking remains the key driver of foreign exchange markets. With…

UBS - This Week's Key Points: Stronger US data likely in the week ahead

UBS - "The summer weakness of the dollar has extended further this month. The greenback ended the week around 1.33, 96, 1.55 and 0.92 against the euro, yen, pound and Swiss franc respectively. America's currency has been undermined by stronger data in the Eurozone, UK and China. But its current soft patch also reflects investors reducing positions and seasonally lower volumes in the currency markets. That suggests dollar weakness has been exaggerated. The Treasury market is also signaling…

UBS - Not Everyone is Long Dollars

UBS - "Mansoor Mohi-uddin, Managing Director Head, Foreign Exchange Strategy at UBS Macro Research:

- During the course of this year our bullish view on the dollar has become more consensus as the Federal Reserve appears likely to be the first of the major central banks to exit unconventional monetary policy.

- But not all investors are long the greenback. American fund managers - the largest holders of dollar- denominated capital in the world - continue to have historically high…

UBS - CHF longs suffering gradual erosion

UBS - "We have been net sellers of Swiss francs for five weeks in a row now – a pattern we have not seen since shortly after the SNB installed the EURCHF floor. This is further evidence that an upside bias in EURCHF is starting to emerge. Despite the recent CHF selling, legacy long Swiss franc positions remain very substantial."

UBS - This week's key points: Dollar drop exaggerated, Bernanke to still signal tapering

UBS - "This month's sharp correction in the greenback - following Chairman Bernanke's comments on the need for monetary easing to continue for now - is a setback for dollar bulls. But the moves in the currency markets were exaggerated by poor liquidity - the head of the Federal Reserve was speaking in the gap between New York trading ending and Asian trading beginning - and the latest US data suggests the Federal Open Market Committee remains on track to start tapering its asset purchases from… Continue

UBS - Bullish View on the Dollar Reinforced

UBS - "EURUSD and GBPUSD have experienced two major regimes over the last couple of decades. In the 1990s both currency pairs tended to weaken when investors were risk seeking while over the last decade both exchange rates have strengthened when stock markets have been rallying.

The shifting experience of the euro and the pound against the dollar appears to have resulted from the Fed changing policy stance after the internet bubble burst in 2000-2001, and consistently setting interest…

UBS - Maintaining Downside Sterling Bias

UBS - "We have held a negative GBPUSD view for all of 2013, with our key argument being the likelihood of a major monetary policy shift in a dovish direction under the new Carney administration. We reflected this via a short GBPUSD trade recommendation established on 14 Feb (we bought a 6-month 15 Aug expiry 1.4800 strike GBP put / USD call with spot at 1.5500 for 0.9975% of face), arguing that both GBP downside and cable implied volatility were underpriced given the risks involved,…
