EUR/GBP Fundamental Analysis – November 5, 2015 – Forecast

Barry Norman

EUR/GBP Fundamental Analysis – November 5, 2015 - Forecast
Analysis and Recommendations:

The EUR/GBP declined as the euros weakened after comments from Mario Draghi while the pound remained steady after a slight miss in Services PMI. The euro will depreciate toward $1.05 by year-end as the ECB will potentially boost its asset-purchase program and cut its deposit rate, said Robert Rennie, head of financial markets strategy at Westpac Banking Corp. in Sydney.

The final set of October’s UK PMI figures headlines the economic calendar in European trading hours, with the rate of overall cross-sector activity growth expected to accelerate for the first time in four months. The trend in UK news-flow has cautiously improved relative to consensus forecasts over recent months opening the door for an upside surprise.

That may boost BOE policy bets, sending the British Pound higher. Near-term follow-through may be limited however, with investors probably reluctant to take firm directional views ahead to this week’s monetary policy announcement.

Later in the day, Fed “liftoff” speculation returns to the forefront as the ISM Non-manufacturing Composite gauge as well as ADP Employment data are released. If that were not enough, traders will also have to contend with a packed schedule of Fed commentary.

The markets have a sense of most Fed officials’ bias. Governor Brainard leans dovish while Chair Yellen, Vice Chair Fischer and New York Fed President Dudley are the core middle ground cautiously mulling a December hike. None of this ought to sound novel. Comments from Philadelphia Fed President Harker may be interesting however as markets learn about the newcomer replacing veteran hawk Charles Plosser.
