EUR/USD: 3 Storylines Driving Trade at the Start of the Week

Risk assets are bouncing back after a rough holiday-shortened week in the US, with US stock indices gaining around 1% at the open to trade back at Wednesday’s levels. As my colleague Fawad Razaqzada chronicled earlier this morning, weekend progress on a Brexit deal has stabilized sentiment, though there are still plenty of hurdles to clear before a smooth transition is likely. In the FX market, last week’s “safe haven” winners (the JPY, CHF, and USD) are the three weakest major currencies so far today.

EUR/USD down after German election, but not yet out

Although Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party won the most votes (at 33%) on Sunday’s German federal election, as widely expected, the margin of victory was a massive disappointment for both Merkel and her conservative party’s supporters. From the last federal election in 2013 to Sunday’s tally, the CDU lost around 8.5% of the vote share. This significant loss of support was not transferred primarily to Martin Shulz’s Social Democratic Party (SPD), as might have been expected, but instead to the anti-immigration and anti-EU party, Alternative for Germany (AfD). AfD garnered 13% of votes – 7.9% more of the vote share than it had in 2013, placing the far-right party in a comfortable third place after the CDU and SPD. While the CDU has secured 246 seats in the Bundestag, the AfD now has a very substantial 94 seats where before it had none. This is the first time that a far-right party has been represented in German parliament since World War II. Therefore, while Merkel has certainly secured a fourth term as Chancellor, the prominent rise of the AfD has created a serious potential threat to the European Union and euro.
