Summary of Institutional Perspectives
TD Securities: The dollar is expected to rebound 2-3% in the near future, mid-term rallies sell off

NOVOX International Financial Information

TD Securities Research discussed the prospects for the US dollar and stated that it will maintain a bullish trend in the near term and sell rallies in the medium term. We continue to expect the US dollar to recover 2-3% in the short term, which should provide a better level of rallies for deeper drawdowns. We tested some trading strategies related to this concept, especially highlighting the benefits of data surprises and growth forecasts for US dollar performance. Different strategies perform differently, and growth strategies perform well in the long run. Combining these strategies underscores our tendency to believe that the recent gains of the New Zealand dollar and the British pound will dissipate and buy the yen on a bargain when the price trend is extreme.
Mitsubishi UFJ: Four reasons for bullish euro-dollar fundamentals

NOVOX International Financial Information

Mitsubishi UFJ’s research department discussed the prospects of the euro against the US dollar and expects the currency pair to find some support near current levels in the coming weeks. At the current node, it is unclear whether the recent top break is the beginning of a more sustained bullish trend for the euro, or another wrong breakthrough like the euro's fall after breaking the intraday high of 1.1495 on March 9.
We believe that the euro has a more solid fundamentals and can continue to rise higher for the following reasons:
1. EU Recovery Fund Plan;
2. The scale of Germany’s 130 billion euro fiscal stimulus is greater than expected;
3. Expansion of the 600 billion euros PEPP plan until the middle of next year, showing that the European Central Bank has expressed its firmer stance on supporting the euro zone economic recovery and the bond market;
4. There is more evidence that the euro zone economy is now recovering from the epidemic as the blockade is relaxed, and the epidemic has not rebounded.
Barclays: slightly raised the target price of the euro against the Swiss franc in the third and fourth quarters to 1.10

NOVOX International Financial Information

Barclays analysts said: We have slightly increased the target price of the euro against the Swiss franc, because the euro zone's recovery plan helps strengthen the consistency of the euro zone's fiscal policy, which will increase the euro against the Swiss franc's short headwind . In the short term, recent moves in the euro area should reduce fiscal policy uncertainty. Nevertheless, the uncertainty of the global economic recovery, the potential threat of future outbreaks, the existence of risk conditions such as the US election and Brexit, I believe that the Swiss franc will still maintain a moderate appreciation in the medium term. The Swiss National Bank should intervene in the exchange rate to avoid an excessive rise in the Swiss franc once risk sentiment is suppressed.
