Potential Bullish on EUR/CHF

FX Daily: Potential Bullish on EUR/CHF


Although political risk remains the main concern in the Eurozone, a series of weak US data has provided some short-term support for the euro.In contrast, low inflation and a second rate cut by the SNB make the CHF attractive for carry trades, but its safe-haven status should be considered in light of rising political risk in France.


EUR: Although further upside on a hung parliament should be limited, political uncertainty is likely to remain elevated long after the election is over. This could dampen momentum in Euro area activity data and potentially reinforce the case for ECB cuts. However, a series of weak economic data from the US, including the June employment report, has provided some support for the euro. Additional support might come from Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s semiannual testimony before the Senate and the House if he maintains a balanced tone, echoing his recent speech in Sintra, and from US CPI-inflation numbers for June if the data show progress on disinflation. Even though these developments will limit the further upside of the euro against the USD, this backdrop could benefit the euro crosses, especially against extremely weak currencies like the CHF, CAD, and JPY, barring any strong developments from them in the near term.

CHF: The SNB’s June meeting clarified that CHF strength was not in line with its policy. Despite inflation tracking in line with the bank’s forecast, the SNB’s decision to ease rates was largely based on curtailing CHF strength, which poses deflationary risks for the economy. Sight deposit data show little evidence of active SNB intervention to weaken the CHF, but further political-risk-driven market moves may prompt the SNB to take a heavier hand between meetings. Softer CPI prints for Switzerland are also likely to help drive the CHF down and disperse any remaining expectations of a policy pivot from the SNB. Moreover, manufacturing PMI input prices are also edging lower, suggesting near-term CPI downside. This means the CHF could weaken against the USD or other high-beta currencies if risk sentiment improves.
