FX: EUR/USD Forecasts Lifted

Arne Lohmann Rasmussen, Chief Analyst, Danske Bank

The first requirement has not yet been fulfilled but the second has been more than met with the latest Fed open-ended easing, which is dollar negative to such an extent that we believe we can say with a high probability that the euro downtrend has now ended. Furthermore, the ECB rescue plan has removed a significant part of the tail-risk that prior was attachedto the euro.
