On Wednesday, EUR/USD closed at its highest level since mid-August. Nevertheless, economists at Rabobank expect the pair to slide towards 0.95 in the next month.

USD strength to remain in place for a further six months or so

“Going into the Jackson Hole meetings, the market was pricing in a full 1 ppt of ECB rate hikes by the October meeting and these expectations have only increased since then.

“We maintain our target of EUR/USD 0.95 on a one-month view.”
