Key quotes



"EUR’s muted reaction to weaker than expected Eurozone July inflation indicates the currency may have reached oversold territory."



"Investors’ expectations for a constructive payrolls reading have been rising on the back of the most recent better than expected growth data."



"However, given high expectations it will be difficult to drive US short-term rates higher unless data surprises considerably higher."



"As a result to the above outlined conditions we argue against selling EUR/USD around the current levels. From a broader angle, however, rallies may still prove a sell."
