    "EUR/USD has bought into fading ECB-Fed policy divergence after the ECB largely gave up the fight for euro depreciation and following recent dovish Fed comments. With positioning now much lighter in terms of short EUR/USD bets, we are probably entering a period in which relative rates could increasingly play a role again, and with a mere 50/50 pricing of a September Fed hike, and the ECB once again challenged on its mandate by market inflation expectations, we see relative rates moving for a weaker EUR/USD in 1-3M. Notably a negative Brexit risk premium could also be factored in ahead of the UK referendum but should be priced out swiftly in our main scenario of no Brexit."

    "We keep our forecast profile unchanged, which leaves some downside near term (1-3M forecast at 1.12) followed by a sustained move higher towards 1.18 in 12M as valuation continues to drive the cross higher."

Single-home starts registered a 7.2% gain indicating increased confidence in the residential construction sector. The number of permits is expected to remain at 1.2 million.
    3. Glenn Stevens speaks: Tuesday, 14:30. RBA Governor Glenn Stevens will speak at the Global Macro Conference in New York. He may talk about RBA’s recent decision to keep interest rates steady unlike the “aggressive monetary policy” conducted by central banks in the US, Europe, Japan and China which affects the value of their currencies. In regards to inflation, Stevens expects it will remain subdued over the next year or two.
    4. UK Employment data: Wednesday, 9:30. UK employment market continued to improve in February as the number of people on the claimant count fell by 18,000 to 716,700.

    6. Eurozone rate decision: Thursday, 12:45. The European Central Bank continued to fight the risk of deflation in its March meeting deciding on various stimulus measures such as reducing its benchmark rate to zero, cutting the rate on cash parked overnight by banks to minus 0.4% and increasing bond purchases to 80 billion euros ($87 billion) a month from 60 billion euros. ECB officials noted they do not expect further rate cuts at the foreseeable future. Draghi told reporters, the ECB had cut GDP growth estimates for 2016 to 1.4% from 1.7%, also lowering its 2017 forecast from 1.9% to 1.7%. Likewise, inflation expectations were reduced from 1% to a mere 0.1%. Furthermore, the ECB announced a fresh round of targeted refinancing operations in June.
