Euro weaker ahead of ECB
The Euro is falling across the board, ahead of tomorrow’s ECB meeting and after consolidating for several days. Market analysts expect a rate cut, chances to forward guidance and another round of QE.
“Our base case sees a 20bps rate cut with tiering, €40bn/m of QE, and no rate hikes until at least mid-2021. We're more comfortable with the rates view than QE, as QE will likely be a contentious decision”, said TDS analysts. The see their dovish ECB call presenting downside risks to the EUR/USD. “We think spot will be more sensitive to a large QE announcement than rate cuts as much of the expected Fed/ECB policy path differential already looks priced”.
