EUR/USD: rallies to 1.1900 seen as good selling opportunities – Rabobank

From a wider perspective, the Rabobank FX Analysis Team sees the euro unlikely to breach 1.20 and contemplates rallies to 1.1900 as good selling opportunities: “The repeated failure of the currency pair to move above the 1.19 level comes at a time when fundamentals factors may also be putting some hurdles in front of the EUR (…) We would favour selling any further rallies towards EUR/USD1.19 in the near-term.”
