Bank of America Global Research maintains its EUR/USD profile unchanged targeting the pair through 1.14 into year-end.

"We expect a USD rally into the election and possibly beyond, depending on the outcome. We continue to expect a decline in EUR/USD to 1.14 by the year-end, significantly below current levels, rebounding again next year as the global recovery eventually takes hold. An increase in FX risk premium amid more volatile market conditions - which we believe are consistent with present high uncertainty and lack of official policy support - appears a necessary condition for a USD rally, however," BofA notes. 

"For next year, we expect EURUSD at 1.20. Our long-term equilibrium range estimate is 1.20-1.25," BofA adds.

The massive build-up in EUR/USD long positions dominated the summer forex market as the dollar slumped, but chart signals projecting a fall to support by 1.1500 nL2N2GL11O could pose a grave threat to those trades.

EUR/USD long positions have probably already diminished since Sept.
18, when they stood at $26.44 bln, according to the latest CFTC data, in light of the euro's 1.8% fall since then.

Still, last week's net long position was much larger than 2018 peaks, which caused a EUR/USD slide from 1.2556 to 1.1301 when it unraveled.

While past performance doesn't predict the future, there are ominous signs.

EUR/USD's abrupt fall from this month's high has taken it down to the lower 10-week Bolli band at 1.1631 last, which may cushion the fall briefly, but September's 1.2014 peak was roundly rejected by the downtrend line from the 2011 and 2014 highs, reinforcing the finality of the recovery from March's pandemic lows.

That recovery sent weekly RSIs to overbought levels.
Those now retreating RSIs have plenty of room to fall, having yet to hit the neutral 50 reading, never mind sub-30 oversold levels.

TD Research warns that 2 ways risks are rising for the USD in the near-term and boked profit on its ToTW for this week: short EUR/USD and long USD/CAD.

"The USD bounce persists, reflecting the BDXY's five-day run. The backdrop relies on extreme positioning and some tired narratives that have started to reverse. The catalyst lies with the rise in the regional COVID infection curves alongside more uncertainty surrounding the US election. Two-ways risks are rising," TD notes. 

"This backdrop doesn't derail the reflation theme but, as noted for some time, it's mispriced. While central banks look determined to suppress real rates, there are signs of life in FX vols. Equity flows and growth divergence should reinforce a more durable bump in FX vol, leaving less focus on the central bank trade...We also close our trades of the week (TOTW), taking profit in short EURUSD  and long USDCAD," TD adds.

  • One-week USD/JPY vols at 5.9 seem cheap given Tuesday's Presidential debate

  • One-week vols are well below June, July and August highs near 8

  • Lots of risk-off flows tied to the U.S. election, fiscal relief delay

  • USD/JPY's back up to middle of August-September range at 105.53 nL2N2GL0HO

  • Market expecting that range to hold, with upside limited near 106

  • But a one-sided debate outcome to Tuesday's could test that view

Danske Research discusses EUR/USD outlook and now sees the pair trading in a wider 1.15-1.19 range going into year-end.

"Since last week, EUR/USD has shifted from the 1.18-1.20 range to testing 1.16. We suspect the factors, which have combined to create this situation, will continue to weigh until yearend. We thus see EUR/USD staying on the weak side versus recent history as an unexpected vacuum of policy and economic direction has come about. Looking further ahead, next year may still potential provide a new test of 1.20. Overall, do note the scope for USD appreciation due to the current global sell-off will be limited by Fed’s response function," Danske notes. 

"We thus see more short-term weakness in EUR/USD than previously anticipated as fundamentals have changed. In the best case for EUR/USD from here, we see several new EUR-positive factors but this will not be priced before some time. We are thus set to trade a wider interval, 1.15-1.19 and while equities remain weak, downside risk to spot is prevalent. Early next year, things may/should still change for the better," Danske adds.

Credit Suisse discusses EUR/USD technical outlook and sees a scope for a flush towards 1.1485 in the near-term.

"EURUSD has maintained the weak tone seen Monday and has not only closed below key support from its 55 -day but has also importantly removed support from the August lows at 1.1710/1.1697. This finally sees a top established to mark a more significant move lower with support seen initially at 1.1627, then the 50% retracement of the rally from June at 1.1590. More important support and our objective remain s seen at 1.1495/85 – the 38.2% retracement of the entire rally from March, 61.8% retracement of the rally from June and point -of - breakout from the medium -term base. We would then look for a fresh floor here for an attempt to resume the broader uptrend," CS notes. 

"Resistance moves to 1.1717/19 initially, then the 55 -day average at 1.1737, with the immediate risk seen staying lower whilst below 1.1776/98. A break would throw a question mark over the top, with resistance next at 1.1827," CS adds.

In its daily note to clients, J.P Morgan said it was out of their euro longs before Wednesday's euro zone PMI data, which did little to alleviate concern over growth but weren't bad enough to induce another aggressive sell-off.

Lack of good news isn't favourable for the outlook of high beta, JPM said, noting that U.S. President Donald Trump didn't help sentiment with his comment that the outcome of the U.S. election will end up in the Supreme Court.
The dollar benefits from current concerns, the bank said, and works against the euro and its long IMM positioning.

Hedge funds have reduced positions substantially, JPM noted, but real money remain heavily invested, according to their internal flow, although they have turned small sellers recently, and thus, an interesting dynamic to monitor.

The bank say that while EUR/USD remains under 1.1700/20, the danger remains to the downside.

FX option markets are more balanced now, but starting to add downside risk premium nL2N2GL06W
