EUR/USD: Caution Warranted Ahead Of ECB; What’s The Trade? – Credit Agricole

Credit Agricole CIB Research discusses the EUR outlook, and notes that in the near term concerns may grow that EUR has moved too far too quickly for comfort.

We think that caution is warranted ahead of the ECB meeting on January 25 where President Draghi could try once again to talk down the currency…That could suggest that investors may opt to take profit on long-EUR positions before long,” CACIB argues.

The above being said, chasing the EUR-rally higher may still be profitable in the case of EUR/AUD and EUR/NZD,” CACIB advises.

In terms of other trade recommendations, CACIB closed on Friday its long EUR/USD* trade at 1.2200 for a 2.6% profit and its long EUR/CHF* trade at 1.1800 for a 4.4% profit as targets were reached on both positions.
