The Euro remains supported by ECB officials fighting speculation of a 25 bps hike. S&P Global Manufacturing and Services PMI surveys will likely be a reality check for the strength of the shared currency, economists at ING report.
“Given that part of the recent EUR strength has relied on a re-rating of growth expectations in the Eurozone thanks to lower energy prices, today’s PMIs will likely be a reality check on the sustainability of this driver for the common currency.”
“It will now take quite a good deal of positive news to push another big idiosyncratic Euro rally. It seems more likely that EUR/USD could test 1.1000 on the back of rising market risk appetite weighing on the safe-haven Dollar if anything.”
“At the same time, the effective pushback by ECB officials against speculation around 25 bps hikes is likely limiting downside risks for the pair.”
