Bullish Euro Behavior to Persist Amid Bets for QE Program Adjustment

Bullish Euro Behavior to Persist Amid Bets for QE Program Adjustment

EUR/USD continues to approach the August 2015-high (1.1714), with the pair breaking to fresh monthly highs even as the European Central Bank (ECB) remains in no rush to remove the zero-interest rate policy (ZIRP).

The reaction to the ECB interest rate decision suggests there’s budding speculation for a ‘taper tantrum’ as the Governing Council will discuss the fate of the Public Sector Purchase Programme (PSPP) in the autumn. With the non-standard measure set to expire in December, President Mario Draghi and Co. may start to wind down its asset-purchases over the coming months as ‘incoming data, notably survey results, continue to point to solid, broad-based growth in the period ahead.’

Unless the ECB extends the deadline for the quantitative easing (QE) program, the euro-dollar exchange rate may exhibit a bullish behavior throughout the second-half of the year as the ECB gradually drops its dovish outlook for monetary policy.

DailyFX 3Q Forecasts Are Now Available

Topside targets remain on the radar for EUR/USD as the pair clears the 2016-high (1.1616), with both price and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) preserving the bullish trends from earlier this year. A closing price above the 1.1670 (78.6% expansion) hurdle may spur a more meaningful run at the August 2015-high (1.1714) as the momentum indicator appears to be pushing back into overbought territory, with the next region of interest coming in around 1.1810 (61.8% retracement) to 1.1860 (161.8% expansion).
