“We now have more ECB easing but a stronger EUR. In our view, this is arguably so as these actions indeed cap macroeconomic tail risks. Thus, the decline in uncertainty becomes a propellant of FX strength.”

“To keep the rally in EUR/USD going, the global investment environment needs to continue to favour a rotation towards ‘undervalued’ assets (…) Simply put, we need at least one of DAX, TRY, ZAR or BRL to continue to rise some 1-2% a day to further support EUR but this may stick with us a while longer.”
