Key quotes

"All of the above stands in contrast to the US, where improving business activity should make a case of both further stabilizing price developments and additional room of rising Fed monetary policy expectations."



"Elsewhere, still underperforming European equities suggest that the risk asset-related capital flow situation continues to weaken."
"All of the above indicates that EUR/USD will stay subject to downside risk."



"Although elevated speculative short positioning is keeping position squaring-related upside risk high, we stay in favour of selling rallies."



"Accordingly we remain short the EUR against the USD as trade recommendations."
