EUR/USD is poised to close out the week on a bullish note
“The EUR is one of the better performers on the session but this probably reflects positioning – short-covering – rather than any particular reassessment of the EUR’s outlook.”
“The squeeze higher will serve to relieve the oversold condition on the shorter-term studies and we reiterate that seasonal trends do tend to be more USD-negative in December – the month that has delivered the strongest gain on average (+1.2%) for the EUR in the past 25 years.”
“A decent squeeze on EUR shorts could see spot rally to the upper 1.13s/low 1.14s in the next few weeks.”
