Summary of investment bank views

TD Bank: If the euro falls below 1.0925 against the US dollar, it will lead to more selling pressure. I am afraid to look at 1.0820/40 in the future.

Toronto Dow Bank (TD) released a research report on Friday that pointed out that if the euro fell below 1.0925, it would trigger more selling pressure. Under the general pressure of the G10 currency, the US dollar performed relatively brightly. At the same time, we believe that financing pressures may continue to support the dollar. We see that the EUR/USD has only recently remained above the next key support at 1.0925. If it falls below this, it will lead to greater selling pressure. For the sell, the next attractive price is looking at the 1.0820/40 area.

A series of important US economic data will be released next week, but so far the market is more concerned about the policy position. Japan will announce the September short-term economic observations of national enterprises on October 1st, which may indicate whether further monetary policy needs to be relaxed.
