Key Quotes



“Today’s preliminary PMI releases from both the US and Europe are likely to confirm a divergent growth outlook between the two regions and emphasise that fundamentals are still moving in favour of the USD relative to the EUR”.



“However, with the Fed maintaining a soft rhetoric, EUR/USD is likely to stay stable for now”.



“According to the latest IMM data, non-commercial investors added to their short EUR in the week ending 17 June. Hence, speculative positioning in EUR/USD looks increasingly stretched which is a possible barrier for further near-term decline in EUR/USD”.



“Moreover, the stretched short euro positioning also implies that EUR/USD has become vulnerable to a correction”.
