UOB analysts provided their bullish outlook on EUR/USD today. “While the sharp break higher in EUR has shifted the outlook to bullish from neutral, it appears that we may have seen a chunk of the rally. That said, as long as 1.1250 is not taken out in the days ahead, further advance to 1.1400, 1.1450 is still a distinct possibility” written in the report.
