EURUSD models targeting 1.0800

24 May 2022 Written by Chris Weston  Pepperstone Head of Research Chris Weston

We looked at the potential for a weaker USD last week and this is now playing out well. As can be seen in this piece I previously wrote, largely as a result of USDCNH topping out and moving into 6.6600, as well as markets pricing hikes in other jurisdictions. With EURUSD now breaking above 1.0641, I’m now eyeing resistance at 1.0766/68 (50% fibo of March sell-off, April lows and 50-day MA). There is some wood to chop to crack this potential supply but through here and I would see 1.0805, possibly 1.0860 as the targeted move. That said, with the threat of the S&P 500 rolling over and headed for another leg lower, which could get ugly, it feels unlikely that we’ll see much higher than 1.0850, but as we know, the market does what the market wants to do.

Again, if we take the analogue of the move in 2000, we see a similar feel in the tape, which if history does indeed rhyme, then could see further EURUSD upside into early June. My simple EURUSD model, based solely on GE-US real rate differentials, has EURUSD pushing towards 1.1000, as EURUSD plays catch up to the moves in relative rates settings. If we look at what's priced in forward rates markets, we see expectations for ECB policy have evolved more intently vs the US, with ECB President Lagarde making it clear their base case is to hike in July and move to positive deposit rates in Q3.

Near-term we watch EU manufacturing PMIs and FOMC minutes as potential drivers, but while we may see a touch of weakness in EURUSD through Asia today, the risks are we trade into 1.0760 – happy to reverse that view if USDCNH trades higher, S&P 500 futures roll over and EURUSD heads back through 1.0640.
