Institutional Perspective


Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs: The BOE is now expected to make a 25 basis point rate hike in November and has raised its terminal rate forecast to 6% versus its previous forecast of 5.75%.



【Societe Generale: For EURUSD to return above 1.10, the U.S. monthly rate of CPI may need to drop to 0.2%】

July 10--This week's focus will be on Wednesday's RBNZ and the BOC interest rate resolutions, as well as the U.S. CPI report due the same day. Kit Juckes, Chief Global FX Strategist at Societe Generale, noted that we expect both headline and core CPI in the U.S. to rise by 0.3% month-on-month, but for EURUSD to have a chance of getting back above 1.10, we'd probably need to see inflation figures of 0.2% (preferably core), along with a run towards 140 for USDJPY. In addition, the market expects the BOC to raise rates by 25 bps to 5% and the RBNZ to leave rates unchanged at 5.5% and the promise that the latter has ended its rate hiking cycle could be enough to send the NZD/CAD again.



【Japan's 10-year bond yield rose to a 10-week high, and the BOJ may take action this month】

July 10 -- The yield on Japan's 10-year government bonds rose 2.5 basis points to 0.46% today, which was the highest level since April 28th. Data released on Friday showed that Japanese payrolls are growing at the fastest pace in nearly 30 years, which may prompt the BOJ to take action at its July 27-28 meeting. BOJ Governor Kazuo Ueda, who has been dovish in his message to the market, said at a European Central Bank forum last month that if the BOJ is "reasonably certain" that inflation will accelerate through 2024, the central bank will have good reason to change monetary policy. MUFG Morgan Stanley Securities senior market economist Naomi Muguruma said: "It is unclear what the BOJ will wait before deciding to adjust the YCC. It seems that the most important factor is the BOJ's confidence in future price movements, but this is vague and we cannot quantify their level of confidence." Muguruma expects the BOJ to wait until October to raise the 10-year Treasury yield cap.
