"Can Mario Draghi QE push Euro to 1.10, What if he disappoints where are we heading ?

FCMForex started this thread If Draghi disappoints the financial markets tomorrow in ECB Press Conference by going on a lower base than where EURO would be heading is a question to be discussed. Majority of the Financial Analysts are expecting ECB President will announce a bond-purchase program on Jan 22. Forecasted target is of 550 billion-euro. ECB conference on 22nd Jan would confirm that whether Draghi meets the expectation or fall short on that.

How much will ECB induce ?

FCMForex started this thread Here's what some other major forecasters are expecting:

Barclays: The ECB is likely to indicate a €500-750 billion programme tomorrow
Morgan Stanley: €500 billion of government bonds and €100 billion of corporate bonds will be purchased
Bank of America: €500 billion to €700 billion over 18 months
Oxford Economics: A larger programme of more like €800 billion
Societe Generale: €500 billion to €600 billion of sovereign bonds will be purchased
Capital Economics: A €500 billion bond purchase programme
Deutsche Bank: DB don't give a clear forecast of what they think the programme will look like, but there are hints that it could be larger. Most importantly, Deutsche's economists believe full QE will have to wait until the March meeting in six weeks.

D-Day for the Euro, Great Expectations Over Mario Draghi

FCMForex started this thread Today is the day for the Euro. Mario Draghi’s monetary announcement is highly anticipated with most market participants expecting a 550 billion Euro bond buying program to be announced. Although, today there has been some speculation for an up to 1 trillion Euros QE program establishment. If the ECB decides to go that high then the EURUSD could go much lower than its current level at 1.1582. The EURUSD has been in sideways between top barrier at 1.1639 and floor at 1.1541 in the recent term as we can see at the chart. We expect ECB interest rate announcement at 12:45 GMT and then most importantly is the ECB Press conference at 13:30 GMT.

The US dollar against the Canadian jumped higher than its previous major cap at 1.2115 and went as high as 1.2390. The Bank of Canada unexpectedly lowered its key rate to 0.75% from 1% and that weighed on an already weak Canadian dollar, pushing it to more than 5 ½ year lows. Main reason for its rate cut was the falling Oil prices.

Elsewhere, the British pound following the better than expected employment data did not react at all. The GBPUSD remained in the consolidation trading style around 1.5136. Perhaps that was due to the two members who voted previously for a rate increase are now voting for steady rate policy. Nevertheless, the employment improvement passed like nothing happened and that suggests the GBPUSD is more US dollar dependent. We expect the US Jobless Claims would have an impact on the currency pair today at 13:30 GMT.

The Aussie and the Kiwi responded negatively yesterday to the decision of the Bank of Canada to reduce key rates because these three currencies are the commodity currencies. Investors would expect that the same policy could follow the RBA and RBNZ. The AUDUSD dropped from 0.8229 to 0.8058 and the NZDUSD declined from 0.7682 to 0.7516. The NZDUSD breached a previous key support at 0.7623 and confirmed its previous long term down trend and taking into account lower than expected inflation for December, should we see falling US Jobless Claims today this currency pair could go continue lower.

ECB Press Conference Summary

FCMForex started this thread Mario Draghi led the European Central Bank into a new era with an historic pledge to buy government bonds as part of an asset-purchase program worth about 1.1 trillion euros. The central bank will buy 60 billion euros per month of securities until September 2016. The ECB also reduced the cost of its long-term loans to banks.

The euro fell 0.5 percent to $1.1550 at 2:01 p.m. in London, after sliding as much as 0.8 percent to $1.1513. It slid to $1.1460 on Jan. 16, the weakest level since November 2003. The shared currency fell 0.7 percent to 135.94 yen. The dollar was little changed at 117.80 yen.

Draghi Proposes 1 Trillion rescue plan for Euro zone

FCMForex started this thread The European Central Bank took the ultimate policy leap on Thursday, launching a government bond-buying program which will pump hundreds of billions in new money into a sagging euro zone economy. By September next year, more than 1 trillion euros will have been created under quantitative easing, the ECB's last remaining major policy option for reviving economic growth and warding off deflation. The next hurdle for European Union is election in Greece.
