EUR/USD: Staying Neutral To Slightly Bearish N-Term – Credit Agricole


What is the outlook for EUR/USD in the near-term?

Here is their view, courtesy of eFXdata:

Credit Agricole CIB Research maintains a neutral to slightly bearish bias on EUR/USD in the near-term.

We keep our neutral to slightly bearish tactical outlook for EUR/USD…Focus this week would be on the February PMIs with investors looking for evidence that the double-dip recession is nearing an end,” CACIB notes.

We note, however, that for the USD rebound to resume in earnest, we would need a less dovish message from the Fed. Evidence from the Fed minutes this week that they are turning less downbeat on the economy, further progress towards a more aggressive fiscal stimulus in the US Congress and more resilient retail sales data could be all triggers of a renewed rebound in UST yields and the USD,” CACIB adds.
