EUR/USD: Strategic Bulls Need To Be ‘Prudent & Patient’ To Navigate More Choppiness Ahead – SocGen

EUR/USD is leaning to the downside as the greenback gains strength. What’s next?

Here is their view, courtesy of eFXnews:

Societe Generale Cross Asset Strategy Research discusses EUR/USD outlook and  maintains  its bullish medium-term bias over the coming months, advising strategic EUR bulls need to be patient in order to navigate more choppy price action ahead.

EUR/USD 1.2450 is still a barrier to a break higher for the euro  and Mario Draghi’s speech to the ECB-watchers’ conference in Frankfurt contained no hawkish surprises.

Mario Draghi’s speech in Frankfurt this morning concludes with the observation that monetary policy will remain patient, persistent and prudent. A PPP ECB policy may be enough to push EUR/USD towards PPP (purchasing power parity) but  bulls need to be prudent and patient too. The OECD’s measure of PPP’s at 1.34  and that’s 8% from here and we’ll probably get there around the time of the first rate hike in a little over a year’s time.

In the meantime,  more choppiness is likely,  with a greater than usual focus on the chaotic nature of US politics,” SocGen argues.
