Is EUR euphoria premium to be priced out?

The dollar is tired battered and bruised and certainly did not see the strength of EURO euphoria coming this week. In just a few short sessions “tail risk” price has been markedly reduced. Certain dealers will tell you that the market is putting the “donkey before the cart” and some of the euphoria “premium” will have to be revalued. The Euro-summit deals need to hold up to scrutiny. Policy makers and leaders have a tough marketing job ahead of them to maintain this market euphoria.

On tap for next week, month end flows are expected to be dollar negative. The market again will have to be nimble with the amount of event risk being produced. The ECB, RBA and FOMC all have policy statements due, certainly easing and QE3 questions will be asked. Capital markets will end the week with the ‘King of Kings’, the Non-Farm Payroll release and the G20 meetings.

Below are some other highlights of the week:
