Commerzbank EUR, GBP and JPY Forecast

Aug. 6, 2017 (Commerzbank AG) -

In the short term, the euro should continue to
trend stronger, due to the political chaos in
the US and the ECB passing off a reduction
of bond purchases as a success in
September. EUR/USD will not probably be
able to decrease before the market prices in
more aggressive Fed rate hikes towards the
beginning of 2018.

• Regarding Brexit negotiations, our working
assumption is that ultimately there will be an
amicable agreement. However, uncertainty
will remain high for a long period so that
sterling will not recover for the time being.

• CNY seems set to further depreciate against
the dollar over the coming quarters.
