FXStreet (Guatemala) - Marc Chandler, Global Head of Currency Strategy at Brown Brothers Harriman noted the surge up onto the 1.34 handle.
"The euro has squeezed higher and reached a three-day high near $1.3410. The advance caught many participants by surprise."
"It seems largely to be a function of short-covering, as some players are moving to the side-lines given the greater uncertainty. There are reportedly large option expirations today, with strikes near $1.3400."
