Over the last two trading days, EUR/USD resumed the upside and turned clearly positive for the month. It will be the fourth monthly gain in a row. The trend to the upside remains intact and a test of 1.20 seems likely relatively soon.

“Whilst we expect a near term pause, from our cross asset lens we note that relative short end rate differentials, relative performance of periphery spreads vs. bunds and higher commodity prices/higher HICP inflation are likely to keep EUR outperformance intact”, explained CitiBank analysts.
