    Key Quotes

    “This week the Argentine peso (ARS) depreciated by 40% after capital controls were lifted, while Fitch downgraded Brazil to junk status. This underlines the continued struggle in EM with or without higher US rates.”

    “We believe that EUR/USD is a very different story, where stretched positioning will mitigate the downside. We expect EUR/USD to range trade between 1.05-1.10 over the coming three months as the market prices in a slightly more aggressive Fed. On 6-12 months, we expect EUR/USD to rise sharply towards 1.16 as the EUR is very undervalued at current levels and the market will eventually realise that we have seen the end of ECB easing.”
