Kit Juckes, Global Head of Currency Strategy at Societe Generale notes that EU Finance Ministers continue their meetings today, but comments from the ECB’s Jen Weidmann reinforced the sense that a Franco-German difference of opinion will prevent any kind of common stand on currency policy.

He notes that EUR/USD is back in a range, capped by the market’s growing conviction that the ECB would act if LTRO repayments put market rates under any further upward pressure. He sees that 2-year Euro swap rates rose from 25bp to 75bp between mid-Dec and late January but after Mario Draghi’s soothing comments last week, have stabilised around 0.6%.

He feels that the most supportive factor for the pair may be that the bounce in EUR/JPY comes from renewed Yen weakeness. He finishes by writing, “USD/JPY and EUR/JPY volumes have picked up a lot in recent weeks, explaining increased FX volumes overall, and where EUR/JPY used to a function of EUR/USD and USD/JPY, that is not the case anymore.”
