UOB analysts provided their outlook on EUR/USD yesterday, stating their bearish targets. “There is not much to add; we still believe the current EUR weakness has scope to extend lower to mid-March low of 1.1055. This is a rather strong support and those who are short from last Monday should look to cover half of their position at this level” written in the report.
