FOREX: US OPEN MARKET POINTS 05-26-05

“Non” Hangs over Euro

Over the past two years we have often referred to the euro, sometimes sarcastically, as the “anti-dollar”. A more accurate description would have been the “alternative-to-the-dollar”. As the only currency in the world, representing an economy large enough to challenge US GDP, the euro has derived most of its strength not from Europe’s superior economic growth (EZ GDP growth has consistently lagged US GDP growth over the past decade) but from three key factors:

1. EU Stability Pact which limited member nation’s ability to run fiscal deficits in excess of 3% of GDP

2. Creation of a unified “friction-free” EU economic zone which would allow EU citizens to sell their goods and services throughout the whole European Union with the same ease and business practice as they could in their home market

3. A conservative central bank, that would fight inflation, assure price stability and defend the value of the currency

If the French do indeed vote “Non” this Sunday, only one leg of the euro tripod will remain standing. With both France and Germany hampered by record unemployment and skyrocketing welfare costs temporary renouncing the Stability pact earlier this year and now France possibly rejecting the vision of a unified European market, the United States of Europe may devolve into a series of Balkanized fiefdoms. Only ECB’s continued hawkish monetary stance is left to prop up the argument of euro longs.

Tonight’s newspaper report that Nicolas Sarkozy, the former French Interior Minister and now one of the leading candidates for French Presidency, privately admitted defeat on the referendum vote, sent the euro plunging to 1.2540 level, before a quick denial from his office produced a mild snapback in the pair. The 1.2400-1.2600 zone represents a major long term support level for the EUR/USD and the pair has been trading there for a the better part of the week.

Will the French “Non” vote be the straw that breaks the camels back and destroy EUR/USD three year uptrend?

In the short run such a result would likely push the pair below the 1.2500 level probing long tern stops clustered around the figure. But unless US economic growth can continue to demonstrate 3.5% GDP growth and 200K+ monthly NFP prints, further downside momentum may stall with the EUR/USD possibly settling into a narrow “war of attrition” trading range. In either case, even the most ardent euro bulls would have to admit that a Non vote would greatly damage euro’s status as the alternative reserve currency.

We will be back on June 1st to deconstruct all the details.
