Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Quarter-End A Catalyst For Volatility?

The near-term cyclical outlook for EUR/USD has gotten a bit murky over the past week with the somewhat unexpected persistent grind higher in the exchange rate back through 1.3600. However, with month-end, quarter-end & first half year-end approaching we know things can change fairly quickly over the next few days as institutional managers begin to rebalance their holdings. The end of the month looks quite important from a timing perspective and the scenario that best fits our cyclical model would be some sort of re-test of 1.3520 later this week as a low around this time would set up a more important move higher in July (which is one of the strongest months for the exchange rate on a seasonal basis). A move through the month-to-date high at 1.3675 would undermine this scenario and point to further strength into at least the second week of July.
