EURUSD to find a bottom in 1Q 2019? - - OCBC OCBC EUR/USD “The EUR 2.6 trn bond-buying programme has been formally concluded by the end of 2018. To a certain extent, the massive stimulus plan by the European Central Bank’s (ECB) has kept the EUR/USD pinned within a 1.05 to 1.25 range since its im- plementation in early 2015. So, once the ECB’s balance sheet stops expanding in 2019, one of the key pressure points against the EUR could start to alleviate.” “With policymakers still largely confident that they would weather the slowdown, discus- sions by the ECB about its maiden rate hike would eventually begin in 2019. This is likely to a key upside catalyst for the EUR especially where pricing for a rate move higher is very modest now.” “Market consensus has yet to price in any meaningful odds of any rate hike from the ECB across 2019. But once the ECB starts hiking rates, this will be in stark contrast to US monetary policy as the FED would have reached the tail end of its rate hiking process in late 2019.” GBP/USD The GBP/USD pair quickly reversed a mid-European session dip to an intraday low level of 1.2635 and rallied over 50-pips in the last hour. The latest leg of sudden spike followed positive comments by theUK Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt, saying that the UK PM Theresa May’s Brexit deal can be passed by the parliament if the European Union provides clarification that the Northern Irish “backstop” will be time-limited. The comments boosted the British Pound and prompted some short-covering move, lifting the pair back closer to the 1.2700 area, though news that the UK all-party In- ternational Trade Committee is calling for a "meaningful vote" on all trade agree- ments kept a lid on any strong follow-through. Meanwhile, the up-move remained supported by persistent selling pressure surrounding the US Dollar, which continues to be weighed down by fears that global economic slowdown might spill over into the US and the partial US government shutdown.
