    Key Quotes

    “Short term bund-Tsy spreads continue to crater against EUR, the 2yr spread hitting fresh nine-year lows almost daily amid the yawning Fed-ECB policy paths, a compelling negative EUR signal”.

    “Fade any EUR position squaring driven strength into year’s end - bund yields fell sharply after the ECB launched sovereign QE in Jan and may well do so again, while a decent Nov payrolls will see markets start to price in a March follow-up Fed hike”.

    EUR/USD has been trading slavishly in line with the 2yr Bund-Tsy spread”.

    “Those looking for a “dovish Fed hike” and year-end position squaring pressures to produce a bounce in EUR/USD later in December might be disappointed. If anything EUR may well surprise on the downside”.
