USD looks set to stay strong into this week’s midterm election after a decent jobs report kept alive the sense of US growth outperformance and hinted that the ECB is contemplating a new TLRO”.

“In the event of a split Congress following the midterms (results due Wednesday morning), USD should stay bid but still remain in a range around 1.15 on a 3M horizon, as any new fiscal boost should be confined to infrastructure and as continued trade talks with China are likely”.
