Summary of investment bank views


Tokyo Mitsubishi UFJ Bank Analysis pointed out that the yen has become the best performing currency in the global currency market this year, and continues to benefit from the construction of the downside risks of global economic growth and escalating trade tensions.

The director of foreign exchange business of Societe Generale said that the performance of the US dollar against the yen was relatively surprised. It is not clear where the fundamentals will go, but the dollar is expected to fluctuate within a certain period of time.

Analysts at Commerzbank said that the dollar fell against the yen and reversed from the January low of 104.51/10 and the 2013-2019 uptrend line. The 200-month moving average was at 104.44, which also strengthened the support of the region.  The short-term resistance is at the low of 107.21 on July 18, and the exchange rate is still blocked. If it breaks, it will ease the downward pressure.  If broken, it will point to the recent high of 108.99/109.32.

Goldman Sachs recommends shorting the Canadian dollar before the Bank of Canada changes its policy

Investors should short the Canadian dollar against the US dollar and against the yen, as the Bank of Canada may soon turn to the dovish position like other central banks; this is the view of Goldman Sachs strategists Zach Pandl and Karen Fishman.  In their report on Tuesday, they said that despite the good performance of Canada's economy, it also faces the risk of slowing US economic growth and rising trade conflicts.

The Bank of Canada will announce its latest policy decision on September 4.  Goldman Sachs analysts said that by then, the Bank of Canada needs to add to the recent economic friction outlook to consider the recent tariff friction, and may lay the foundation for the next month's interest rate cut, which is the second highest in the G-10 currency this year.  In terms of the yuan, the prospects are not good.

Unlike most G-10 countries, the Bank of Canada has not hinted at a policy of relaxation – but we believe that this transition will soon come; as an open economy with an important commodity sector, global economic growth is further  The weakness will eventually put pressure on Canada's economic output; at the same time, there are other banks that believe that the Canadian dollar still has room to rise.  For example, Citi technical analysis shows that the Canadian dollar is at a critical level and should rise against the dollar.

In the escalating trade dispute, the market expects the Bank of Canada to cut interest rates by 68% in October, and more and more economists support this forecast.  The strategist writes that our trading target is set at 1.360, 1.305 stop loss; shorting the Canadian dollar may also be accompanied by long yen, in part because it is more directly responding to the global economic weakness risk.

ING: The overall trend of the Australian dollar remains bearish and it is recommended to go through the US and Japan short positions.
