UBS - "In the week ahead, Fed Chair Yellen makes two public appearances while US retail sales, CPI inflation, industrial production and the New York and Philadelphia Fed manufacturing surveys are released. The greenback has been held back in Q1'14 by weather-affected data. But the US economy is likely to record stronger prints in Q2'14 as the latest weekly jobless claims numbers show. That will increase the risk of the dollar recovering from its current weak levels. This week's key points…Continue

UBS - "The foreign exchange markets reacted to America's March employment report by favouring higher-yielding emerging markets and commodity currencies. But US data is unlikely to remain 'not too hot' to spur fears of Federal Reserve tightening and 'not too cold' to raise concerns about the recovery. Instead Friday's payrolls report clearly showed America's economy emerging from the winter slowdown. The Fed is thus on track to finish tapering its bond purchases by the autumn, raising the…Continue

Deutsche Bank - "Net implied USD longs fell from 13% to 8% of open interest the week before, making it the seventh consecutive fall. Since the first week of February, when longs as a percentage of open interest stood at 44% leverage funds have constantly reduced their longs holdings and have turned net short while asset managers have continued to build modest long positions. Speculative EUR longs were also trimmed and JPY shorts were added to. Commodity currencies (CAD, AUD and NZD) saw the…Continue

Bank of America Merrill Lynch - "Although March euro area inflation was on the low side of economic forecasts (at 0.5% yoy versus market expectations of 0.6%), we do not believe this will be enough to trigger ECB action yet as (1) most of the drag is coming from energy and (2) the ECB, like us, expects a rebound in April inflation on the back of disappearing energy drag and a boost from the Easter timing (late April this year, in contrast to March last year, affecting the services…Continue

TD Securities - "EURUSD rebounded in the early part of the past week, much as we expected it might after the consolidation late the week before. But despite a very powerful rally Monday (outside range day), the gains did not have any staying power and the EUR traded softly over the balance of the week, falling to test the 40-day MA. The market may be able to consolidate a little longer (and gain a little more) above 1.3775 early next week but the short-term bias towards more corrective…Continue

UBS - "The dollar has reached a major turning point against the euro. For the first time in eighteen months, relative central bank balance sheet growth is favouring the greenback as the Federal Reserve tapers its asset purchases. At the same time the European Central Bank's balance sheet contraction is also slowing as commercial banks cut their repayments of Longer-Term Refinancing Operation loans. Since the 2008 financial crisis such shifts have led to major turning points in the currency…Continue

UBS - "The Federal Reserve is only likely to start raising interest rates next year. But this month's Open Market Committee meeting has primed the dollar for a major rally over the next few months. Policymakers agreed to taper monthly bond purchases by another $10bn. In addition, the Fed's forward guidance linking future interest rate hikes to a 6.5% unemployment rate was dropped. But the FOMC also surprised by retaining its bullish economic forecasts despite the winter slowdown in America,…Continue

A few days ago we made a small but very practical improvement to our Economic Calendar: a “Time left” countdown. Instead of having to calculate yourself how much time is left before an economic data release, you can check the countdown column next to the release time. If an event has passed, it’s represented by a green tick.
Remember that you…

Deutsche Bank - "Net implied USD longs continue to fall (the fifth straight week of declines). The TFF report shows, however, that although the leverage fund community has been adding to dollar shorts over the past few weeks, asset managers are increasing longs positions. Speculative EUR longs were added to. Leverage funds increased EUR longs positions while asset managers continue to add shorts. Speculative CHF longs were added while MXN shorts were reduced, primarily due to leverage funds’…Continue

TD Securities - "EURUSD hesitated only briefly early this week, respecting the “shooting star” top noted last week for a day or two, before pushing on to new cycle highs Thursday. The drop back in spot from the high 1.39 area Thursday—close to the top of the daily channel—alerts us to the risk of a deeper turn lower in the week ahead, however. We are a little uncomfortable with the EUR’s extended run higher but the technical underpinnings remain strong, with bullish trend momentum signals…Continue
