EUR/USD Sentiment QE or not QE?: This is the question facing markets as Draghi takes the stage for the first time in the new ECB headquarters for the last meeting of the year. There are quite a few reasons to believe he will condition QE not on forecasts, which are expected to drop, but on the results of the second TLTRO released next week – a question of timing rather than substance. Here is the full preview: A big step towards QE? 3 scenarios Dollar domination: The US dollar made a comeback, amid comments from FOMC member Stanley Fischer that expects wage hikes in the US. Richard Fisher, another FOMC member with almost the same name also had bullish comments to offer: that rate hikes are coming sooner than markets expect. Non-Farm Payrolls buildup: The first hint towards the NFP was positive: ISM manufacturing PMI beat expectations. ADP disappointed with only 208K jobs, slightly below predictions. Also the employment component of the ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI ticked down, but still remained high and also the headline figure was promising. All in all, expectations are probably consistent with the original projections of 225K. Even weaker inflation: The fall in oil prices and a relatively stable euro during October resulted in a very weak German inflation figure of 0.5% in HICP. Also Spanish inflation fell short. This means that EZ CPI, which is currently at the lowest levels in years, could fall even closer to zero. Adding the OPEC decision not to cut and the resulting extension of falling oil prices, at least headline inflation is set to fall even further.
