What to expect from the ECB and the EUROUpdated 09:15AM 12/09/2019
NZD and AUD are the top G10 FX gainers today, up 0.53% and 0.36% vs the dollar while JPY and USD are the top losers.
Euro fell to around 1.10 versus the dollar ahead of the ECB meeting later today where the market expects a fresh stimulus. We expect a cut to the deposit rate by 10 bp and announcement of a quantitative easing with monthly purchases less than the market expectations. EURUSD and EURGBP levels to watch on the downside is 1.0900 and 0.8900, respectively.
AUD continued its ascent as more positive news emerged on the U.S.-China trade war: Beijing exempted some of the U.S. goods from tariffs, while U.S. President Trump tweeted he will delay October tariff hike by two weeks.
Sterling also remained near multi-week highs as fears of a no-deal Brexit remained low.
