    Weekly Outlook: 2015, July 12 - 19

    BNP Paribas - How To Trade Greece's End-Game

    1. Sell EUR relief rallies against USD, GBP:

    "This scenario produces a relief rally across most asset classes. European equities would rally and peripheral spreads would narrow. It is unlikely the EUR would appreciate broadly as it is difficult to argue that the single currency is trading at a discount to valuation. Outcome 1 would provide a catalyst for the re-establishment of EUR-funded carry trades," BNPP advises.

    "Accordingly, the EUR should depreciate, especially against higher yielders such as the USD and GBP. A clear exception would be EURCHF, which is likely to rally in this scenario. The CHF has served as a safe-haven as indicated by the net long exposure of +24.," BNPP projects.

    2. Sell EUR/JPY:

    "This is the scenario the market fears...We view that EURJPY shorts would perform even better in this scenario, as an anticipated delay to Fed tightening would weaken the USD," BNPP advises.

    Morgan Stanley evaluated scenarios about EUR in case of Greece

    Short-term evaluation:

    • "Should Greece sign a deal, a short-term EUR rebound should be followed by EUR weakness as investors are likely to move back into EUR-funded carry positions."
    • "Should Greece exit, the ECB may have to use its tool kit to keep sovereign spreads under control. Monetary easing should put the EUR under selling pressure. Ultimately, the ECB should be successful in controlling spreads, we believe."

    Long-term evaluation:

    • "A Grexit represents a fundamental shift for EMU with the loss of ‘irrevocability’ potentially turning the union into a club of fixed exchanges rates with the possibility to leave. Peripheral assets will have to trade at a risk premium, unless EMU authorities deepen integration via further banking union and fiscal integration steps. The ECB controlling sovereign spreads successfully could turn into a long-term EUR negative factor as it may not provide the necessary ‘wake-up call’ to European politicians to make the necessary reforms to avoid future market tension."

    Last week the Federal Reserve released the minutes from its June meeting, showing policymakers were concerned about Greece’s debt crisis, saying failure to reach an agreement may result in disruptions in financial markets in the euro area and possibly ricochet into the US economy. The rate hike timeline was also discussed, as mixed economic data made it harder for the Fed to initiate such a move in June.

Official figures showed prices increased 0.1% amid higher airfare and oil prices. The reading was in line with market forecast. Analysts expect inflation will remain weak in the coming months and will stay below the BOE’s goal of 2% until 2017. However, low prices and rising wages are beneficiary to household finances. UK’s inflation is expected to rise by 0.1% in June.
    4. Eurozone German ZEW Economic Sentiment: Monday, 9:00. German Economic Sentiment Index fell to 31.5 in June, following 41.9 posted in May. Analysts expected a higher reading of 37.5.
