Hesitant to Short EUR Into French Elections; Short USD/JPY Preferable - NomuraDate Published: Fri, 24 Feb 2017 14:03:39 +0000
We have been doggedly bearish on the dollar since the start of the year, but we have been avoiding buying the euro for concerns that the coming elections in the Netherlands and particularly France would weigh on it. Recent weakness in the euro due in part to polls suggesting more support for Marine Le Pen, the anti-EU candidate, has justified this caution.

Retail sales have already showed signs of slowing and will likely continue to do so.

With a proposed cut in the US corporate income tax rate to 20%, in the longer term, the USD would need to appreciate by 25% to get relative prices of exports and imports back to previous levels, which has drawn much skepticism as a possibility.

The ‘risk on, dollar strong’ picture is intact. The move in US real yields is still being tracked pretty faithfully by DXY, so I’ve dragged out that chart again. DXTY really does need to break above 102 to avoid giving the impression of a head and shoulders formation-in-waiting.

Трябва да видим на дневна графика затваряне под 1.3080 или дори 1.3000, за да се надяваме на възобновяване на мечия тренд. Ако това не се случи вероятно върха 1.3600 ще бъде обновен, а цената може да качи до следващата зона за реакция около 1.3700.
Директна корелация с петрола според мен може да се прави, защото разговорите за сега се въртят около това дали цената му ще се качи до 60-65$ където да се включат и шистоваците.След това обаче вероятно ще имаме отново спад.Предполагам,че едно покачване на цената ще се използва от големите спекуланти за акумулиране на къси.
