Summary of investment bank views

ING: US dollar remains attractive

ING's analysts believe that the euro's net position against the dollar remains unchanged, in line with recent history, indicating that despite the risk sentiment or weakening the dollar's ability to hedge, the market's demand for the dollar is still strong. In addition, since the beginning of October, the yen's net short position growth has slowed down during the reference week. The data shows that the Canadian dollar is still the largest holding of long positions in the G10 currency. Given that the reference cycle did not cover the recent recent meeting of the Central Bank, the central bank's doves turned to a serious impact on the Canadian dollar. We expect the Canadian dollar's net position to be revised after the data is updated next Monday.

The Fed may have ended its preventive rate cuts, and Goldman Sachs recommends a neutral US dollar deal.

The Goldman Sachs strategist said that given that the Fed may have ended its preventive rate cut, it is time to establish a defensive portfolio with a lower defensive performance and a better performance in the global economy. They recommend making dollar-neutral emerging market currency arbitrage, or G-10 currency trading with “deep value but sensitivity to economic growth”. Goldman Sachs currently believes that there is no strong reason for the dollar to fall widely.

Goldman Sachs strategists said that the premise of the depreciation of the US dollar is that there are more signs of global growth picking up, and that US interest rates may be lowered, and the future path of US-China trade relations is clearer. At the same time, Goldman Sachs no longer recommends a long rupee against the offshore renminbi, saying that the recent trade situation has kept it cautious.

Mitsubishi UFJ Bank: Three reasons to support Johnson's victory in the election, the pound is expected to strengthen and strengthen

MUFG wrote on Monday that three reasons indicate that the British election may be difficult to replicate the dramatic results of 2017, and that Johnson will win overall. Now enter the election mode or pay close attention to the trend of the polls. Our cautious view of Johnson's victory is justified. Looking back at the results of the FT poll in April 2017, the Conservative Party had led the Labour Party up to 16 points, but in the June election, it actually fell back to 6 points, and the Conservative Party lost its victory.

Citibank: The next key position of the Australian dollar against the US dollar - 0.6954

Citibank discussed the technical outlook for the Australian dollar against the US dollar on Monday, saying it maintains a bullish bias and stressed that it will continue to short the currency pair with a target of 0.7080. The next important position for the exchange rate is the 200-day moving average of 0.6954. This moving average has limited every rebound since March 2018, a total of five times. So this position will be crucial in the next move. If it can break through, it will form a double bottom and pave the way to the target 0.71. Looking ahead, Tuesday will welcome the meeting of the Reserve Bank of Australia (expected not to have much volatility), trade balance data on November 7 and the Reserve Bank of Australia statement announced on November 8.
