EUR: bullish forecasts from Crédit Agricole
Information is not investment advice
Strategists at Crédit Agricole expect the USD will continue falling, while the EUR will keep rising in the coming months. The bank named the greenback as the largest loser from the global recovery. Indeed, the US dollar has been dipping for almost half a year already. As a result, EUR/USD has broken through the key psychological level of 1.2000. It’s a natural thing that investors take out their capital from safe-havens assets such as the USD and flow them into assets with higher returns as the global economy is entering the new growth phase.
Undervalued EUR vs overvalued USD
Crédit Agricole considers that the greenback is overvalued against its major peers as the USA has fiscal and trade deficit. “Global investors could thus start hedging against future depreciation of the currency and sell the USD forward”. At the same time, Crédit Agricole models demonstrate that the euro is undervalued.
According to Crédit Agricole, "recovering global growth and trade will lead to increased selling of USD by global corporates as they convert their growing exports proceeds into their home currencies”. They foresee EUR/USD to reach 1.2500.
EUR/USD is touching the 50-period moving average, which has been supporting the pair since the start of November. Therefore, the price is unlikely to break down, but if it does, the support zone of the recent lows of 1.2100-1.2110 will limit the further falling. When EUR/USD approaches the resistance of 1.2170, it may meet the fresh selloff ahead of the breakout. The next resistance will be at 1.2200.
