Summary of Institutional Perspectives
Wells Fargo: The US dollar may weaken further after the FOMC meeting

Wells Fargo believes that even if the Federal Reserve maintains its policy at next week's FOMC meeting, the US dollar may still weaken further to benefit the euro and other currencies of the "dollar group". Strategists Mike Schumacher, Zachary Griffiths, and Erik Nelson wrote in a report on Thursday that foreign currencies are gaining momentum and the results of the lackluster FOMC meeting next week may give the green light to the continued weakness of the dollar.

They wrote that any new major policy changes in the form of yield curve control or other forward guidance are more likely to be announced at the September or November meeting. The standstill meeting will bring a slight increase in yields, which may limit the rise of the dollar against the yen and emerging markets. The euro "should be more resilient", and "the net speculative positions of the New Zealand and Canadian dollars in particular look low." Any changes to the forward-looking guidance language may be subject to the "uncertainty of the economic impact of the resurgence of the epidemic".

Strategists such as Bank of America Ben Rando and Athanasios Vamvakidis wrote in the report that the bank raised its expected target for the euro against the US dollar at the end of the year from 1.05 US dollars to 1.08 US dollars, due to increased investor preference for risky assets and continued weakness in the US dollar. The team raised the third quarter forecast for the euro against the dollar from 1.08 to 1.12; maintaining the forecast for 2021 unchanged at 1.15.

Nevertheless, strategists still maintain a bearish tendency towards the euro against the dollar, largely because of our optimistic view of the dollar, which in turn is based on the pessimistic outlook of the global economy. The current main driver of the dollar’s weakness is still strong. Risk appetite, especially the performance of the US stock market. The team also raised its forecast for USD/JPY at the end of the third quarter from 102 to 104.

Rabobank: It is advisable to buy euro against pound on dips

Rabobank pointed out that since mid-February, the euro has been steadily rising against the pound, and the three-month target is still expected to be 0.92. It is recommended to buy on dips; the British government has failed to guarantee trade prospects and the number of deaths from new crown pneumonia is high. The impact on confidence has provided a severe background for the UK economy. Considering that the UK maintains a current account deficit, which may trigger additional downward pressure, the pound is a very fragile currency.
