EUR/USD unchanged. Bearish forecast on oil from Goldman Sachs.

EUR/USD had a volatile session today. The pair closed the European session unchanged at 1.1179.

“Going forward the key sources of potential downside in the cross are set to derive from a continued improvement in risk sentiment and/or markets pricing in Fed hikes more aggressively. While this could lend support to USD near term, we maintain that the EUR/USD will be range-bound on a 1-3M horizon around the 1.10 level and headed higher thereafter still targeting 1.16 in 12M” wrote Kristoffer Lomholt from Danske Bank.
